THE CITY SEAL. 



137 




THE CITY SEAL 
As it appeared prior to 1827. 

The city seal was adopted by "An Ordinance to Establish 
the City Seal," passed Jan. 2, 1823, which provides " That 
the design hereto annexed, as sketched by John R. Penni" 
man, giving a view of the city, be the device of the city seal ; 
that the motto be as follows, to wit : ' Sicut patribus sit 
Dens nobis ; ' and that the inscription be as follows : — 
' Bostonia condita, A.D. 1630. Civitatis regimine donata, 
A.D. 1822.' " The motto is taken from 1 Kmg's, YIII, 57. 

The seal as it then appeared is shown above. 

The seal as it was afterwards changed and has ever since 
continued to be used first appeared on page 221 of the 
volume of laws and ordinances commonly known as the 
"First Revision" published in 1827, and is continued on 
the city seal at the present time by Revised Ordinances 
of 1892, Chapter 1, Section 5, which provides that "The 
seal offethe city shall be circular in form; shall bear a view 
of the city ; the motto ' Sicut Partibus Sit Deus Nobis,' and 
the mscription, 'Bostonia Condita, A.D. 1630. Civitatis 
Regimine Donata, A.D 1822,' as herewith set forth." 

The seal as changed in 1827 and as it has ever since 
appeared is shown opposite the title page.

tific commission of three members to examine the system of sew- 
erage in this city, and to suggest any improvements which could be

cepting sewers, at a cost of about $6,000,000. On July 17, 1876, the

NEW WARDS. 237 



NEW 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 1875.1 An 
attempt was made by the City Council to make anew 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.^ Certain questions wore 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. ^ On account 
of this decision of the Justices of the Supreme Judicial Court, an act 
was passed by the Legislature in June, 1886, "^ 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.

the division line dividing the property of the Alonzo Crosby heirs and

1875. By Cliap. 242, of tlie Acts of 1876, the City Council were directed to divide Ward 
Twenty-two into two wards to be called Wards 22 and 25. Thie division « as accord- 
ingly made by an ordinance passed May 27, 1876.

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-tirst of Febniary, 
Thomas A. Davis was elected. 

In the meantime, from January to Feb. 27, 184-5, 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 Xovember 
he died, being the only Mayor who has died in office since the organiza- 
tion 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 afterward 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 INlayor for 1854 was continued through three ballot- 
ings, from Dec. 12, 1853, to Jan. 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 practices 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 Dec. 
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 Alder- 
men, who signed all official papers as "Acting Mayor."

In 1879 Benjamin Pope died while in office. 

In 1880 George E. Bell died while in office.

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 twelve 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 CCity Document Xo. 38 of 1881J, 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 i^etition asking the Board to 
examine and recount the ballots for Messrs. WooUey, Haldeman, and 
Flynn, sitting members, and Messrs. William Frost, John Thompson, 
and George 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 re-examination of the ballots cast 
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. 



ALDERMEN. 301 

For reports of contested seats in the Board of Aldermen, see City 
Document No. 7 for 1801 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 ])lural- 
ity of 102 votes over .)osei)h Caldwell. On petition in due legal form a 
committee of the Board of 1882 recounted the ballots cast for these 
two candidates, 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 '' K. 

F. Leighton," 18 for " F. Leighton," and 11 for " Leighton;" 

also that, "with the excejjtion of the name ' E. F. Leighton,' 
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 upon an adjoining name, but being 
of such length as to partly cover the names in question." The com- 
mittee 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, declaring 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 contested elections: 

The first, Feb. 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, 
Dec. 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, Feb. 9, 1843, vacated the seats of three members from 
Ward 1, returned as elected at the adjourned meeting, December 14, 
on the ground that four votes for non-resident candidates (after having 
been first thrown out by the ward officers)^ 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 declared elected, leaving one vacancy. 

The fifth, Feb. 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, Jan. 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, Feb. 3, 1853, in accordance with the Eeport 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 bo7iaJicle, 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 Eeport of the 
Committee on Elections, vacated the seat of a member from Ward 3, 
on the groimd that at the time of his election he was not an inhabitant 
of that ward. Before a decision was reached on this point the mem- 
ber 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, Jan. 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 Cormcil. (See City Docu- 
ment No. 12 for 1857.) 

The eleventh, Jan. 16, 1868, vacated the seat of a member returned 
from Ward 10, because, by the count of the original ballots cast in said 
ward, it appeared that another i^erson was chosen. 

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

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



COMMON" COUNCIL, 307 

Tho fourteenth, Jan. IS, 1872, vacated the seat of a member re- 
turned fi-om Ward 7, for tho same reason. 

The fifteenth occurred as foUows: 

At the annual municipal election in 1871, Frederick S. Kisteen was 
declai-ed elected as a member from Ward 10. The 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. Kisteen, and said Brackett was accordingly declared by the Common 
Council of 1872 to be entitled to the seat. Subsequently Mr. Risteen 
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 tlie Common 
Council sustained this view of the case, and Mr. Risteen was again re- 
turned to his former seat, and was again duly qualified, on Feb. 1, 1872. 
(See City Doc. No. 18 for 1872.) 

The sixteenth, Jan. 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 x^erson was chosen. 

The seventeenth, Jan. 14, 1875, vacated the seat of a member re- 
turned fi-om Ward 1, because, by the count of the original ballots cast 
in said ward, it appeared that another person was elected. 

The eighteenth, Jan, 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, Jan. 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, Dec. 27, 1880 (see records of Board of Aldermen of 
said date), vacated tjie seats of one member from each of the following- 
named wards, viz. : 3, 13, 16, and 19, because, from an examination 
of the original ballots cast in said wards , it aj^peared 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 
Committee of the Board of Aldermen of 1880, who examined the 
ballots for Common Council in that ward, erroneously reported 
that the sitting member had been duly elected, (See City Doc. No. 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 Council exercising its discretion as to the intent of the voter 
in certain cases of technical irregularity. (See City Docs. Nos. 6, 
11, of 1887.) 



308 MUNICIPAL EEGISTEE. 

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, '95, '96 and '97, a member of the Board of 
Aldermen. Eliphalet Williams (president of the Common Council, 
1829) served fifteen years, but not consecutively. James J. Flynn 
served tvrelve years in the Common Council (president, 1883) and three 
years in the Board of Aldermen. Thomas Wetmore served eleven years, 
not consecutively, in the Board of Aldermen.
