INTRODUCTION. 



The City lias 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 Registek. The Munici- 
pal 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 sta- 
tistics 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. From 1889 to 1896, inclusive, The 
Municipal Register contained a compilation of the Charter 
and Acts subsequently passed, in the place of which an index 
of said Charter and Acts was substitued in 1897. The Bos- 
ton charter and index are omitted this year, otherwise The 
Municipal Register of this year is in substantially the 
form of all other Municipal Registers since 1889. 

By the direction of the Mayor The Municipal Register 
of 1898 has been compiled by the Municipal Statistics 
Department. Text and tables have been revised, and many 
printer's and other errors have been corrected.

THE CITY SEAL. 



.C^^^t"^^^ 






^"^ CONDI TA A.D. 
,v^^ 1650 p<5V 



THE CITY SEAL 
As it appeared prior to IS27. 

The city seal was adopted by " An Ordinance to Establish 
the City Seal," passed January 2, 1823, which provides 
" That the design hereto annexed, as sketched by John R. 
Penniman, 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 King's, viii. 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 1898, Chapter 1, Section 5, which provides that " The 
seal of the city shall be circular in form ; shall bear a view 
of the city ; the motto ' Sicut Pateibus Sit Decs Nobis,' 
and the inscription, ' BosTOisriA Condita, A.D. 1630. Civi- 
tatis 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.

the Board were exercised through the City Council. The present Board 
of Health was established by an ordinance of December 2, 1872, and

which may be given, granted, bequeathed or devised to the said corpora-

tion, to an amount not exceeding $1,000,000. The first Trustees were 
appointed under an ordinance of October 14, 1852. The old Library 
Building on Boylston street was opened to the public in September, 1858, 
and closed finally in January, 1895. The new Library Building on Copley 
square was first opened on March 11, 1895. The Library is maintained 
by an annual appropriation voted out of the general funds of the city 
by the City Council, about $25,000 of which is used annually for the 
purchase of books. The Library also holds trust funds aggregating 
-f 265, 000, the interest of which is devoted to the purchase of books. 

The annual reports, the first of which appeared in 1852, have been con- 
tinued without interruption. 

Of the Quarterly Bulletins, which were begun in 1867, fourteen volumes 
have been published. The series closed in 1896. 

A Monthly Bulletin is now issued. The trustees have issued also general 
and special catalogues of the Central Library, and of its branches and 
special collections, as well as hand-books for readers, and other docu- 
ments. 

LIBRARY SYSTEM. 

The Library system consists of the Central Library in Copley square; 
ten branch libraries with independent collections of books; seventeen 
stations, of which eleven contain deposits of books from the Central 
Library, five contain deposits, reference books and periodicals and are 
classed as reading-rooms, and one is a delivery station. Excluding the 
seventeen stations, there were, on February 1, 1898, in the Central 
Library and Branches, including the evening and Sunday service, 269 
employees. 

Between the Central Library and these twenty-seven stations, by 
Library wagons and local expresses, there is a daily exchange of 
books and cards, whereby persons living in outlying districts can 
draw books from the Central Library without the necessity of com- 
ing in person. 

The delivery or deposit of books is also undertaken in five schools, 
three reformatory institutions and twenty-two fire-company houses. 

Cards allowing the use of two books without restriction as to class, 
for two weeks, are issued to all residents of Boston over twelve years 
of age, with no further attendant delay than is involved in identifica- 
tion. No guaranty is asked, except in case of a sojoui'ner. For read- 
ing and reference the Library is open to all without formality. Special 
cards for more extended privileges are issued to clergymen ofiiciating 
in the city, and to teachers giving instruction in Boston institutions of 
learning; a special card is also issued in certain cases by the Trustees. 
On February 1, 1898, there were 64,973 card-holders having the right to 
draw books for home use. The total number of volumes was 698,888; 
of periodicals currently received, 1,925. Books issued in 1897 for 
home use, 1,199,658; of reference use, on account of the freedom with 
which books may be consulted, no adequate statistics are kept.

1895 by the addition of about 68 acres of the Bussey land on Peters' 

Hill, belonging to Harvard College, and the name Bussey Park was 

added to the title. All the land in this tract not needed for driveways,

NEW WARDS. 115 



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.^ 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.^ 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. ^ 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. 

Beginning at the intersection of the Harbor Commissioners' line and 
the division line dividing the property of the Alonzo Crosby heirs and 
Eichard F. Green; thence by the Harbor Commissioners' line to the 

1 An ordinance providing for a new division of the city into wards, passed Nov. 16, 
1857. 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 accord- 
ingly made by an ordinance passed May 27, 1876. 

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

t Josiah Quincy 









The election of Mayor for 1845 required eight ballotings by the 
citizens. At the eiglith trial, on the twenty-first of February, Thomas 
A. Davis was elected. From January to February 27, 1845, William 
Parker, having been elected Chairman of the Board of Aldermen, per- 
formed the duties of Mayor. 

On the twenty-second of November Thomas A. Davis died, being the 
only Mayor who has died in office since the organization 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 acted as Chairman of the Board in the interval between 
the death of Mr. Davis and the election of Mr. Quincy. 

The election of Mayor for 1854 was continued througli 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 practices in one of the wai'ds 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 187S. 

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 took 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.

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. 



180 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

The municipal government for 1855 was tbe 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, December 14, 1880, the returns of the pre- 
cinct officers showed William Frost to be elected Alderman by a plural- 
ity 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 intern ion 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 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, December 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 January 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, December 12, 1882, the returns of the pre- 
cinct 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 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 " E. F. Leighton," 

18 for "F. Leighton," and 11 for " Leighton ;" also that, " with 

the exception of the name ' E. F. Leighton,' which was wiitten, the 



ALDERMEN. 181 

abbreviated names above recited were plainly legible beyond tbe 
edges of ' stickers,' or '■ pastei's,' 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 committee further re- 
ported 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,

Edward C. Cadigan, of Ward 15, died in office, July 2, 1897. 

The principal successfully contested elections may be summarily 
described as follows: 

(1.) The Common Council, on December 29, 1828, declared vacant 
the seats of two members (one from Ward 1 and one from Ward 2), 
because the said members having each accepted another office, viz. : 
that of Engineer in the Fire Department, were not entitled to their 
seats. 

(2.) On February 22, 1830, the Council 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." 

(3.) On May 7, 1835, the Council 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. 

(4.) On March 7, 1839, the Council vacated the seats of three mem- 
bers of Ward 12, on the ground that a number of illegal voters, suffi- 
cient to affect the choice, voted at the polls. 

(5.) On January 19, 1843, the Council 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 



186 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

(aftei" 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. 

(6.) On February 27, 1851, the Council 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 a subsequent election 
the same members were again returned to the Common Council. 

(7.) On January 20, 1853, the seats of thi-ee members of Ward 3 
were declared vacated on the ground that they were chosen at an 
adjourned meeting which was illegally held. 

(8.) On February 3, 1853, in accordance with the Report of the Com- 
mittee on Elections, the seats of three members from Ward 11 were 
vacated 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 mem- 
bers thus elected were by the vote of the Common Council declared 
entitled to their seats. 

(9.) On March 19, 1863, in accordance with the Report of the Com- 
mittee on Elections, the Council 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. 

(10.) On April 9, 1863, the Council 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 elec- 
tion, — 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 election the same members were again 
returned to the Common Council. 

(11.) On January 21, 1867, 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, December 10, 1866), was vacated on the ground that 
the polls at said adjourned meeting were not kept open the same num- 
ber of hours as were required by the original warrant. At a sub- 
sequent election the same member was returned to the Common 
Council. (See City Document No. 12, for 1867). 

(12.) On January 16, 1868, the seat of a member returned from 
Ward 10 was vacated, because, by the count of the original "ballots cast 
in said ward, it appeared that another person was chosen. 

(13.) On January 6, 1870, the Council vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 13, for the same reason as is recited above. 

iTais fact was admitted, though not statscl in tbe report of the committee. 



COMMON COUNCIL. 187 

(14.) On January 5, 1871, the Council vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 15, for the same reason as is recited above. 

(15.) The Council, on January 18, 1872, vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 7 for the same reason. 

(16.) At the annual municipal election in 1871, Frederick S. Risteen 
was declared elected as a member from Ward 10. The election was 
contested 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. 
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 
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 Document No. 18, for 1872.) 

(17.) On January 4, 1874, the Council vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 13, because, by the covint of the original ballots 
cast in said ward, it appeared that another person was chosen. 

(18.) On January 14, 1875, the Council 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. 

(19.) On January 4, 1877, the Council 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. 

(20.) The Council, on 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. 

(21.) The Council, on December 27, 1880 (see records of Board of 
Aldermen of said date), vacated the 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 appeared that 
other persons 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 mem- 
bers were duly chosen. Peculiar features of the case in Ward 13 were 
that some of the ballots undoubtedly deposited by the voters of Pre- 
cinct 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 
Document No. 54, of 1881.) 

(22.) On April 14, 1881, the Council vacated the seat of a member 
returned from Ward 13, as it appeared from inspection of the original 
ballots that another person was elected. 

(23.) In 1887 one seat in the representation of Ward 4 and one in 
that of Ward 15 were vacated and the contestants declared elected by 



188 MUNICIPAL REGISTEE. 

the Council, the Council exercising its discretion as to the intent of 
the voter in certain cases of technical irregularity. (See City Docu- 
ments Nos. 6, 11, of 1887.) 

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