INTRODUCTION. 



The City has annually since 1821 issued a volume contain- 
ing, until 1829, a register of the City Council and a list of 
the officers. In 1829, the City Charter, in 1830, the acts 
relating to Boston and the ordinances, and in 1832 an index 
were added. The volume for 1822 contains fifteen pages, 
and for 1840 eighty-five pages and three pages of index. 
The volume up to, and including, 1840 bears the title of The 
Rules and Orders of the Common Council, and since that 
year the title of The Municipal Register. The Municipal 
Register for 1841 contains the Rules and orders of the 
Common Council, joint rules, ordinances of the City, statutes 
of the Commonwealth relating to the City, a list of the public 
schools, the City government of 1841, the committees and 
departments' (consisting at that time of the treasury, law, 
police, health, public land and buildings, lamps and bridges, 
fire, and public charitable institutions), and a list of the 
ward officers ; from 1842 to 1864, it also contains a list of 
the members of preceding City governments, a necrological 
record of these members, the latest ordinances and the special 
statutes relating to the city; in 1851 a list of the annual 
orators was added, and in 1853 a map of the City and the 
rules of the Board of Aldermen were inserted ; in 1876 statis- 
tics of registration and voting were included, and since 1879 
in tabulated form ; in 1883 portraits of the Mayor and pre- 
siding officers of the two branches of the City Council were 
included, and in 1888 a list of the members of the past City 
governments of Roxbury and Charlestown was added, and 
continued to 1890. Since 1889 the Municipal Register is 
in substantially the form of the present volume.

The Deputy Superintendent of this division has the care and manage- 
ment of the ferries owned by the city, makes necessary repairs on all

and sees that all moneys received from tolls and other sources are paid 
to the City Collector. 

By Chapter 155 of the Acts of 1869 the City Council of Boston was 
authorized to purchase the property and franchise of the East Boston 
Ferry Company, incorporated by Stat. 1852, Chap. 244. On December 
17, 1869, the city voted to purchase the ferry property and franchise for 
the sum of $275,000 ; and the property was delivered to the city on 
April 1, 1870. [See City Doc. 115 of 1869.] ! 

From April, 1870, to July, 1886, the ferries were in charge of a Board 
of Directors, seven in number; from July, 1886, to April, 1890, a Board 
of Directors, five in number; from April, 1890, to May, 1891, a Board of

1 By a vote of the City Council, passed July 30, 1877, it was determined that the ferries 
should be run free of all tolls on aud after January 1, 1S78. At the request of some citizens 
a mandamus was issued by the Sup. Jud. Court, the city to show cause why an injunction 
should not issue to prevent the execution of said order. After a hearing of the case, the 
court decided that the city had no authority to pass the order of July 30, 1877. (123

such connections, the levying of assessments on estates benefited by 
the construction of sewers, the keeping of Stony Brook free of obstruc- 
tions, and the maintenance of the Main Drainage Works. These works 
originated in an order of the Board of Aldermen, approved February 25, 
1875, by which the Mayor was authorized to appoint a scientific commis- 
sion of three members to examine the system of sewerage in this city, 
and to suggest any improvements which could be made therein. The 
following persons were selected by the Mayor for such commission : 
E. S. Chesbrough, of Chicago, Moses Lane, of Milwaukee, and 
Charles F. Folsom, M.D., of Boston, who submitted their report 
(City Doc. 3 of 1876), recommending the construction of intercept- 
ing sewers, at a cost of about $6,000,000. On July 17, 1876, the sum of 
$40,000 was appropriated by the City Council for the purpose of making 
preliminary surveys for routes to Moon Island and to Castle Island. 
In 1877 the Joint Special Committee upon this subject reported (City 
Doc. 70), recommending the immediate undertaking of the project; 
and on August 9, 1877, a loan of $3,713,000 was authorized to meet the 
expense of constructing a large intercepting sewer from Charles River 
across the city, in a southerly direction, to Moon Island. Additional 
appropriations have been made at various times, and the sum of 
$6,382,766 has been appropriated for Improved Sewerage and expended 
by the City Engineer's Department. 

Construction began August 9, 1877, under the direction of Joseph P. 
Davis, City Engineer, and was continued by him until his resignation in 
March, 1880, then by his successor, Henry M. Wightman, City En- 
gineer, until his death in April, 1885 ; since this date until the present 
time by William Jackson, City Engineer. 

On the first of January, 1884, construction was sufficiently advanced 
to permit the works being put in operation, and on January 22, 1885,

XEW WARDS. 175 



^TEW WARDS. 



New wards were established for the city in the year eighteen hundred 
and ninety-five, the first division into new wards since the year 1875. ' An 
attempt was made by the City Council to make a new division of wards 
in the year 1885, and an ordinance to that effect was prepared by a 
special committee appointed for the purpose and passed by the City 
Council and approved by the Mayor. 2 Certain questions were raised, 
however, in the General Court of 1886, relative to establishing State, 
senatorial and representative districts, and as to whether such districts 
should be established according to the territorial boundaries of cities 
and towns and their wards as they existed on the first day of May, 1885, 
or whether new ward lines, as in the case of the City of Boston, should 
be followed. On May 21, 1886, the opinion of the Justices of the 
Supreme Judicial Court was asked by the Legislature on this matter, 
and they decided that the district divisions referred to must be made 
according to territorial and other boundaries existing on the first day of 
May, 1885, and that the new ward divisions were illegal. 3 On account 
of this decision of the justices of the Supreme Judicial Court, an act 
was passed by the Legislature in June, 1886, 4 which provided that the 
several wards, .precincts, and assessment districts of the several cities 
of the Commonwealth, existing May 1, 1885, should be established as 
the wards, precincts, and assessment districts of said cities, any acts or 
ordinances of the city councils of said cities to the contrary notwithstand- 
ing. The new division of wards was thus set aside and the ward lines 
established in 1875 remained in effect until they were changed in 1895, 
and established under the provisions of Chap. 417, of the Acts of 1893, 
as follows : 

WARD ONE. 

Beginning at the intersection of the Harbor Commissioners 1 line and 
the division line dividing the property of the Alonzo Crosby heirs 

1 An ordinance providing for a new division of the city into wards, passed Nov. 16, 
1875. An ordinance to make Breed's Island, so-called, part of Ward 1, passed Dec. 4, 1875. 
By Chap. 242 of the Acts of 1876, the City Council were directed to divide Ward Twenty- 
two into two wards to be called Wards 22 and 25. The division was accordingly made by 
an ordinance passed May 27, 1876. 

2 An ordinance making a new division of the city into wards, passed Dec. 23, 1885. [Doc. 
174 of 1885.]

The election of Mayor for 1845 was more warmly contested than in 
any former year. There were not less than eight several ballotings by 
the citizens. At the eighth trial, on the twenty-first of February, 
Thomas A. Davis was elected. 

In the meantime, from January to Febi'uary 27, 1845, William Parker, 
one of the Aldermen, having been elected Chairman of the Board of 
Aldermen, performed the duties of Mayor. 

On the sixth of October Thomas A. Davis, being in declining health, 
resigned the office of Mayor, which resignation, however, was not 
accepted by the City Council ; and on the twenty-second of November 
he died, being the only Mayor who has died in office since the organi- 
zation of the city government in 1822. 

On the eleventh of December Josiah Quincy, Jr., was elected Mayor 
by the City Council, for the unexpired term of 1845. Benson Leavitt, 
one of the Board of Aldermen, acted as Chairman of the Board in the 
interval between the death of Mr. Davis and the election of Mr. 
Quincy. 

In 1851 Benjamin Seaver, having already been elected an Alderman 
of the city for 1852, was afterwards chosen Mayor for said year. At 
the commencement of the ensuing municipal year, 1852, he resigned as 
an Alderman, and accepted the office of Mayor. 

The election of Mayor for 1854 was continued through three ballot- 
ings, from December 12, 1853, to January 9, 1854. In the meantime 
the duties of Mayor were performed by Benjamin L. Allen, Chairman 
of the Board of Aldermen. 

At the municipal election in 1872 William Gaston was certified, by 
the returns of the officers of the several wards, to have been elected 
Mayor of the city for the next municipal term. But, upon charges of 
alleged fraudulent jjractices in one of the wards of the city, a recount

of all the ballots cast at said election was demanded and made ; and it 
appearing therefrom that Henry L. Pierce had seventy-nine plurality, 
he was declared duly elected Mayor for the year 1873. 

In 1873 Henry L. Pierce, Mayor of the city, was elected a member of 
the Forty-third Congress from the Third Massachusetts District, in place 
of William Whiting, deceased. Mr. Pierce resigned his office as Mayor 
on November 29, and occupied his seat in Congress on December 1. 
1873. 

The duties of the Mayor for the remainder of the municipal year 
were performed by Leonard R. Cutter, Chairman of the Board of 
Aldermen, who signed all official paper's as " Acting Mayor."

At the municipal election, in 1852, nine Aldermen had a majority of 
ballots ; but, in accordance with the statute, the eight who had the 
highest number of votes were declared elected. 

The municipal government for 1855 was the first one that was organ- 
ized under the new or revised City Charter, which provided for the 
annual election of tivelve Aldermen. 

At the municipal election, Dec. 14, 1880, the returns of the precinct 
officers showed William Frost to be elected Alderman by a plurality of 
fifteen votes over James J. Flynn, and a very slight difference in the 
number of ballots cast for other candidates who failed of election. A 
recount of the ballots cast for Mayor and Aldermen was thereupon 
demanded in legal form. A committee of the Board of 1880, having 
made the recount, reported, December 27, that Mr. Flynn was elected, 
having received a plurality of votes over Mr. Frost; and Mr. Flynn 
took the seat at the organization of the Board of 1881. Mr. Frost gave 
notice of his intention to contest the seat of Mr. Flynn, and also of Mr. 
Haldeman, who had received the next greatest number of votes. A 
committee of the Board of 1881 was appointed to consider the matter, 
and reported, March 14, 1881 (City Document No. 38 of 1881), the 
majority declaring Mr. Frost entitled to the seat held by Mr. Flynn, 
with two minority reports. The majority report was accepted March 
21, and Mr. Frost took the seat. One peculiar incident in this case 
was the reception of a numerously signed petition asking the Board to 
examine and recount the ballots for Messrs. Woolley, Haldeman, and 
Flynn, sitting members, and Messrs. William Frost, John Thompson, 
and Geoi'ge S. Dexter, standing next highest on the precinct returns ; 
another was the fact that many ballots were either mislaid or stolen, in 
Precinct 3 of Ward 13, on election day. 

At the municipal election Dec. 13, 1881, the returns of the precinct 
officers showed William Frost to be elected Alderman by a plurality of 
154 votes over Charles V. Whitten. On petition, in due legal form, a 
committee of the Board of 1881 made a recount of the ballots cast for 
Mayor and Aldermen, and reported that Mr. Whitten was elected over 
Mr. Frost, and Mr. Whitten took the seat. Mr. Frost contested the 
seat of Mr. Whitten, and called for a reexamination of the ballots cast 



ALDERMEN. 241 

Such examination was made by a new committee, which reported, 
January 17, that William Frost had 19,861, and Charles V. Whitten had 
19.825. On Jan. 19, 1882, the seat was awarded to Mr. Frost. 

For reports of contested seats in the Board of Aldermen, see City 
Document No. 7 for 1861, and City Document No. 16 for 1862. 

At the municipal election, Dec. 12, 1882, the returns of the precinct 
officers showed Edwin F. Leighton to be elected Alderman by a plurality 
of 102 votes over Joseph Caldwell. On petition in due legal form a com- 
mittee of the Board of 1882 recounted the ballots cast for these two candi- 
dates, and reported, December 26, that Joseph Caldwell appeared to be 
chosen by a plurality of 14, and that in addition there were found 3 ballots 

for " Caldwell," 1 for "E. F. Leighton," 18 for "F. Leighton," 

and 11 for " Leighton; " also that, "with the exception of the 

name ' E. F. Leighton, 1 which was written, the abbreviated names 
above recited were plainly legible beyond the edges of ' stickers,' or 
' pasters,' which covered and concealed the Christian names of Messrs. 
Caldwell and Leighton, those stickers having been pasted ujDon an 
adjoining name, but being of such length as to partly cover the names 
in question." The committee further reported that there was plainly 
no intent to cancel the names over which the stickers extended. Mr. 
Caldwell, who was a member of the Board of 1882, thereupon stated 
his intention of not appearing to claim a seat in the Board of 1883, and 
introduced an order, which was passed, declaiing that, in the opinion 
of the Board, the abbreviated ballots should be credited to Mr. Leighton. 
The Board of 1883, on petition of Mr. Leighton, awarded him the seat 
at the first meeting, January 1.

There have been the following successfully coutested elections : 

The first, February 22, 1830, vacated the seat of a member from 
Ward 6, on the ground that " closing the poll before the hour at which 
the voters were notified it would be closed was a violation of the rights 
of the voters." 

The second, May 7, 1835, vacated the seats of the members of Ward 
3, who were returned as having been elected at an adjourned meeting, 
December 11, 1834, on the ground of irregular proceeding, to render 
the whole number of votes certain by taking the highest number of votes 
for candidates on each opposing ticket, adjournment of the meeting by 
the sole authority of the Warden, and other irregularities, at the 
annual election, December 8. 

The third case, March 7, 1839, vacated the ( seats of three members of 
Ward 12, on the ground that a number of illegal voters, sufficient to 
affect the choice, voted at the polls. 

The fourth, February 9, 1843, vacated the seats of three members 
from Ward 1, returned as elected at the adjourned meeting, December 



246 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

14, on the ground that four votes for non-resident candidates (after 
having been first thrown out by the ward officers) 1 were counted at the 
annual election, December 12, thereby preventing the choice of two 
other candidates, who, by excluding the said four votes, were by the 
decision of the Council declaimed elected, leaving one vacancy. 

The fifth, February 27, 1851, vacated the seats of two members from 
Ward 3 on the ground that they were chosen at an adjourned meeting 
which was illegally held. At the subsequent trial the same members 
were again returned to the Common Council. 

The sixth, January 20, 1853, vacated the seats of three members of 
Ward 3, on the ground that they were chosen at an adjourned meeting 
which was illegally held. 

The seventh, February 3, 1853, in accordance with the Report of the 
Committee on Elections, vacated the seats of three members from Ward 
11, on the ground that the Mayor and Aldermen had no right to issue 
warrants for election of members of the Common Council, after the 
annual election and before the organization of the government-elect. 
But inasmuch as the elections in question were conducted bona fide and 
no other informality was apparent, and as this custom of supplementary 
elections had been in vogue for twenty years, the members thus elected 
were by the vote of the Common Council declared entitled to their seats. 

The eighth, March 19, 1863, in accordance with the Report of the 
Committee on Elections, vacated the seat of a member from Ward 3, on 
the ground that at the time of his election he was not an inhabitant of 
that ward. Before a decision was reached on this point, the member in 
question resigned. 

The ninth, April 9, 1863, vacated the seats of the entire delegation 
from Ward 10, on the ground that more votes were returned than there 
were persons who voted in that ward at the municipal election, — 
occasioned by mistake, probably, in the counting of the ballots, — the 
variation being so great as to affect the election of the whole delegation. 
At the subsequent trial the same members were again returned to the 
Common Council. 

The tenth, January 24, 1867, vacated the seat of a member from 
Ward 3, who was chosen at an adjourned meeting (held on account of 
a tie-vote at the regular meeting, Dec. 10, 1866), on the ground that 
the polls at said adjourned meeting were not kept open the same 
number of hours as were required by the original warrant. At a 
subsequent election the same member was returned to the Common 
Council. (See City Doc. No. 12 for 1867.) 

The eleventh, January 16, 1868, vacated the seat of a member 

1 This fact was admitted, though not stated in the report of the Committee. 



COMMON COUNCIL. 247 

returned from Ward 10, because, by the count of the original ballots 
cast in said ward, it appeared that another person was chosen. 

The twelfth, January 6, 1870, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 13, for the same reason as recited above. 

The thirteenth, .January 5, 1871, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 15, for the same reason. 

The fourteenth, January 18, 1872, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 7, for the same reason. 

The fifteenth occurred as follows : 

At the annual municipal election in 1871 Frederick S. Risteen was 
declared elected as a member from Ward 10. This election was con- 
tested by J. Q. A. Brackett, and a recount of the original ballots 
showed that said Brackett was elected by a plurality of one ballot over 
F. S. Risteen, and said Brackett was accordingly declared by the Com- 
mon Council of 1872 to be entitled to the seat. Subsequently Mr. Ris- 
teen contested this decision, on the ground that his name was erased 
from a number of ballots by some one of the ward officers after said 
ballots were deposited by the voters. After a protracted inquiry the 
Common Council sustained this view of the case, and Mr. Risteen was 
again returned to his former seat, and was again duly qualified, on 
February 1, 1872. (See City Doc. No. 18 for 1872.) 

The sixteenth, January 4, 1874, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 13, because, by the count of the original ballots 
cast in said ward, it appeared that another person was chosen. 

The seventeenth, January 14, 1875, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 1, because, by the count of the original ballots 
cast in said ward, it appeared that another person was elected. 

The eighteenth, January 4, 1877, vacated the seat of a member from 
Ward 20, because, by the count of the original ballots cast in said 
ward, it appeared that another person was elected. 

The nineteenth, January 10, 1878, vacated the seat of a member from 
Ward 20, because, by the count of the original ballots cast in that 
ward, it appeared that another person was chosen. 

The twentieth, December 27, 1880 (see records of Board of Aldermen 
of said date) , vacated the seat's of one member from each of the follow- 
ing-named wards, viz., 3, 13, 16, and 19, because, from an examination 
of the original ballots cast in said wards, it appeared that other per- 
sons were chosen. From an examination made at the same time of the 
original ballots cast in Ward 5 it appeared that, instead of there being 
a tie-vote for a third member from said ward, three members were 
duly chosen. Peculiar features of the case in Ward 13 are, that some 
of the ballots undoubtedly deposited by the voters of Precinct 3 of this 
ward were either mislaid or stolen at the polling place, and that the 



248 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

Committee of the Board of Aldermen of 1880, who examined the bal- 
lots for Common Council in that ward, erroneously reported that the 
sitting member had been duly elected. (See City Doc. 54 of 1881.) 

In 1887 one seat in the representation of Ward 4 and one in that of 
Ward 15 were vacated and the contestants declared elected, the Coun- 
cil exercising its discretion as to the intent of the voter in certain cases 
of technical irregularity. (See City Docs. Nos. 6, 11, of 1887.) 

In 1889 one seat in the representation of Ward 3 and one in that of 
Ward 12 were vacated and the contestants declared elected, the intent 
of the voter in cases of technical irregularity being considered. 

See "Reports of Controverted Elections in the Common Council of 
the City of Boston, from 1827 to 1889." Boston : 1889, pp. xvii and 
277. 

The longest continuous service in the City Council is that of David F. 
Barry, member of the Common Council from 1880 to 1893 (president 
in 1887, '88, '91, '92, '93), 1894 and 1895, a member of the Board of Alder- 
men. Eliphalet Williams (president of the Common Council, 1829) 
served fifteen years, but not consecutively. James J. Flynn served 
twelve years in the Common Council (president, 1883) and three years 
in the Board of Aldermen. Thomas Wetmore served eleven years, not 
consecutive, in the Board of Aldermen.
