INTKODUCTION. 



The City has annually since 1821 issued a volume 
containing, 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 volumes up to 
and including 1840 bear the title of The Rules and Orders 
of the Common Council and since that year the title 
of The Municipal Register. The Municipal Regis- 
ter for 1841 contains the Rules and Orders of the Com- 
mon 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 com- 
mittees and departments (consisting at that time of 
the treasury, law, police, health, public land and build- 
ings, 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 pre- 
ceding City Governments, a necrological record Of those 
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 presiding 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 sub- 
sequently passed, in the place of which an index of said 
Charter and Acts was substituted in 1897. The Amended 
Charter of 1909 is added this year while the alphabetical 
list of Aldermen and Councilmen since 1822 is omitted. 

By the direction of the Committee on Rules The 
Municipal Register of 1910 has been compiled by the 
Statistics Department. Text and tables have been 
revised, and several new tables, with additional text, 
have been incorporated.

ORIGIN AND GROWTH OF BOSTON. 



The Royal Patent incorporating the Governor and 
Company of Massachusetts Bay in New England passed 
the seals March * 4, 1628-29. At a General Court, or 
Meeting of the Company, on August *29 of that year it 
was voted "that the Government and patent should be 
settled in New England." To that end Governor Win- 
throp led the Puritan Exodus in 1630. Soon after his 
arrival at Salem on June *12, 1630, he proceeded with a 
large following to Charlestown, where a plantation had 
been established the summer before. The Assistants 
held three Courts at Charlestown in the interval, August 
*23 to September *28, inclusive. At their meeting 
on September *7, they " ordered that Trimountaine 
shalbe called Boston; Mattapan, Dorchester; and the 
towne upon Charles River, Waterton." Thus Shawmut 
of the Indians was named Boston, probably out of grati- 
tude to the Merchants of Boston in Lincolnshire, who 
had subscribed generously to the stock of the Company. 

In the course of the summer, Governor Winthrop 
with the patent chose Boston as his abiding place. 
The first " Court" held in Boston was a " General Court" 
on October *19, "for establishing of the government." 
On October * 3, 1632, Boston was formally declared 
to be "the fittest place for publique meetings of any 
place in the Bay." 

Boston was the first town in Massachusetts to become 
a city. It was incorporated February 23, 1822, by 
St. 1821, c. 110, adopted March 4, 1822. This act was 
revised by St. 1854, c. 448, commonly called the City 
Charter, adopted November 13, 1854. 

The neck of land called Boston, still called Boston 
Proper, contained perhaps 700 acres of land, judging 
from the 783 acres shown by the official survey of 1794. 
In the interval 1630-37, Boston acquired jurisdiction 
over most of the territory now included in Chelsea, 
Winthrop, Revere, East Boston, Brookline, Quincy, 
Braintree, Randolph and Holbrook, besides certain

islands in the harbor. From 1637 till May 13, 1640, 
when " Mount Woollaston" was set off as Braintree, 
Boston exercised jurisdiction over a territory of at least 
40,000 acres. Within its present limits there are only 
27,318 acres, including flats and water. 

Since 1640, grants of land have been made to Boston 
by the General Court as follows: (1) October *16, 1660, 
1,000 acres "for the use of a free schoole, layd out in 
the wildernesse or North of the Merimake River" (in 
Haverhill), in 1664. (2) June *27, 1735, in abatement 
of Province Tax, three townships, each six miles square, 
or 69,120 acres in all. These townships later became 
the Towns of Charlemont, Colrain, and Pittsfield. 
Boston sold its interest in them June *30, 1736, for 
£3,660. (3) June 26, 1794, a township of land in 
Maine (23,040 acres) "to build a public hospital." This 
tract was sold by the City April 6, 1833, for $4,200. 

Muddy River was set off as the Town of Brookline 
on November *13, 1705, and Rumney Marsh was set 
off as the Town of Chelsea January *8, 1739. 

The principal annexations of territory included within 
the present limits of the City of Boston have been made 
as follows: 

(1) Noddle's Island, by order of Court of Assistants, March 
*9, 1636-37. (2) South Boston set off from Dorchester March 
6, 1804, by St. 1803, c. 111. (3) Washington Village set off 
from Dorchester May 21, 1855, by St. 1855, c. 468. (4) Rox- 
bury January 6, 1868, by St. 1867, c. 359, accepted September 

9, 1867. Roxbury received its name by order of the Court of 
Assistants October * 8, 1630. It was incorporated a City March 
12, 1846, by St. 1846, c. 95, accepted March 25, 1846. (5) Dor- 
chester January 3, 1870, by St. 1869, c. 348, accepted June 22, 
1869. It received its name September *7, 1630, by order of 
the Court of Assistants. (6) Brighton January 5, 1874, by St. 
1873, c. 303, accepted October 7, 1873. Set off from Cambridge 
as the Town of Brighton February 24, 1807, by St. 1806, c. 65. 
(7) Charlestown January 5, 1874, by St. 1873, c. 286, accepted 
October 7, 1873. Settled July *4, 1629. It was incorporated 
a City February 22, 1847, by St. 1847, c. 29, accepted March 

10, 1847. (8) West Roxbury January 5, 1874, by St. 1873, c. 
314, accepted October 7, 1873. It was set off from Roxbury 
and incorporated a Town May 24, 1851, by St. 1851, c. 250.

THE CITY SEAL 
As it appeared prior to 1827. 

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 Deus 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 Kings, 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 con- 
tinued as 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 Patri- 
bus Sit Deus Nobis,' and the inscription, '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.

AMENDED CITY CHARTER OF 1909. 



The Mayor and City Council. 

Section 1. The terms of office of the mayor and the members of both 
branches of the present city council of the city of Boston and of the 
street commissioner whose term would expire on the first Monday of 
January, nineteen hundred and ten, are hereby extended to ten o'clock 
a.m. on the first Monday of February, nineteen hundred and ten, and 
at that time the said city council and both branches thereof and the 
positions of city messenger, clerk of the common council, clerk of com- 
mittees, assistant clerk of committees, and their subordinates shall be 
abolished. The officials whose terms of office are hereby extended shall, 
for the extended term, receive a compensation equal to one-twelfth of the 
annual salaries now paid to them respectively. The mayor and city 
council elected in accordance with the provisions of this act, and their 
successors, shall thereafter have all the powers and privileges conferred, 
and be subject to all the duties and obligations imposed by law upon 
the city council or the board of aldermen, acting as such or as county 
commissioners or in any capacity, except as herein otherwise provided. 
Wherever in this act the phrase "mayor and city council" appears, it 
shall be understood as meaning the mayor and city council acting on and 
after the first Monday of February, nineteen hundred and ten, under the 
provisions of this and the three following sections. The city council maj', 
subject to the approval of the mayor, from time to time establish such 
offices, other than that of city clerk, as it may deem necessary for the 
conduct of its affairs and at such salaries as it may determine, and abolish 
such offices or alter such salaries; and without such approval may fill 
the offices thus established and remove the incumbents at pleasure. 

Sect. 2. The mayor from time to time may make to the city council 
in the form of an ordinance or loan order filed with the city clerk such 
recommendations other than for school purposes as he may deem to be for 
the welfare of the city. The city council shall consider each ordinance or 
loan order presented by the mayor and shall either adopt or reject the 
same within sixty days after the date when it is filed as aforesaid. If the 
said ordinance or loan order is not rejected within said sixty days it shall

an officer or agent of the corporation or association, or solicits or takes 
part in the making of the contract.

The Trustees of the Public Library of the City of Boston, who are five 
in number, are appointed by the Mayor, one each year, for a term of five 
years. They were incorporated by an act of the General Court passed 
April 4, 1878, and are authorized to receive and hold real and personal 
estate which may be given, granted, bequeathed or devised to the said 
corporation, 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 $31,313 of this appropriation 
was used in 1909 for the purchase of books and periodicals. The Library 
also holds trust funds aggregating $430,724, the interest of which is devoted 
to the purchase of books. 

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

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

A Quarterly Bulletin of a new series is now issued, and a weekly list 
of new books added to the Library. 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; 
eleven branch libraries with independent collections of books; seventeen

reading rooms, all of which contain deposits of books from the Central 
Library, reference books and periodicals. There were, on May 1, 1910, 
in the Central Library, Branch Libraries and reading rooms, including 
the evening and Sunday service, 460 employees. 

Between the Central Library and these twenty-eight stations, by 
library wagons, 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 coming in person. 

The delivery or deposit of books is also undertaken in one hundred 
and twenty public and parochial schools, twenty-nine institutions and 
fifty-eight 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 with no further attend- 
ant delay than is involved in identification. No guaranty is asked, 
except in case of a sojourner. Such cards are also issued to non-resident 
pupils attending Boston schools who furnish guaranties. For reading 
and reference the Library is open to all without formality. Special cards 
for more extended privileges are issued to clergymen officiating in the 
City, and to teachers giving instruction in Boston institutions of learn- 
ing; a special card is also issued in certain cases by the Trustees. On 
May 1, 1910, there were 85,874 card-holders having the right to draw 
books for home use. The total number of volumes was 969,939, and of 
different newspapers and periodicals currently received at the Central 
Library and branches about 2,158. Books issued in 1909, for home use 
and for use through schools and institutions, numbered 1,647,846; of 
reference use, on account of the freedom with which books may be 
consulted, no adequate statistics are kept.

Cochituate supply, from 1850, and of the Mystic supply, from 1866, 
there are numerous special reports. By Chapter 449, Acts of 1895, the 
Boston Water Board, the Water Income Department and the Water 
Registrar were abolished and the Water Department created, a single 
commissioner being entrusted with all the powers previously exercised 
by the Boston Water Board and the Boston Water Registrar. 

By Chapter 488, Acts of 1895, the State provided for a metropolitan 
water supply, Boston being included among the municipalities thus to be 
supplied. A State Commission, the Metropolitan Water Board, in 
accordance with said act, took possession, in 1898, of all that part of the 
Boston water system lying westward of Chestnut Hill Reservoir, also the 
pumping station there, with adjacent lands. The sum paid to the City 
was $12,531,000. Payments to the State by the City for its supply of 
water have been regularly made since 1898. The supply and distributing 
mains now in charge of the Boston Water Department are 761 miles in 
extent, and the number of meters in use is nearly 12,000. The daily 
average amount of water used in 1909 was 89,593,100 gallons.

The office of Commissioner of Wires was established in 1894, in accord- 
ance with Chapter 454 of the Acts of that year. 

The department has issued annual reports, beginning February 1, 1895. 

Under the statute of 1894, it was made the duty of the Commissioner 
of Wires to have all unexempted electric wires, cables and conductors 
in the City north of Dover and Berkeley streets, and between the Charles 
river, the Harbor and Fort Point channel placed under ground, and to 
remove all unexempted poles and structures in the streets within the said 
district before January 1, 1900. 

He was authorized to supervise and inspect both underground and 
overhead wires, cables and conductors; to regulate the direction of such 
wires, cables and conductors, and see that they were sufficiently insulated; 
to secure the removal of dead or abandoned wires, and the protection 
of all buildings by proper safety devices; to inspect all wires carrying 
electric light, heating or power current within buildings, and to see that 
all wires, posts, machinery and appliances are kept in good order and 
condition. 

Chapter 249 of the Acts of 1898 provides that in each of the years 
1900-1909, inclusive, the Commissioner of Wires shall prescribe the limits 
of a district within which, for not more than two miles of streets, avenues, 
or highways, certain wires, cables and conductors shall be removed or 
placed underground during the calendar year. 

In accordance with Chapter 347 of the Acts of 1908, the Commissioner 
is authorized, in 1910, and in each year thereafter, to and including the 
year 1919, to prescribe not more than two miles of streets, etc., within 
which all wires, cables and conductors shall be put under ground. Under 
Section 3 of the same Act, the Commissioner is authorized to make 
such rules and regulations relating to the insulation of overhead and 
underground wires, cables and conductors and appliances as may be rea- 
sonably necessary for the purposes of safety. 

The Commissioner is sole judge of what constitutes proper and safe 
insulation of electric conductors and appliances within buildings, and 
is authorized to make such rules and regulations as he may deem necessary 
to secure safe insulation. 

According to Chapter 339, Acts of 1908, any person, firm or corpora- 
tion failing to notify the Commissioner of the installing of wiring or appa- 
ratus for electric light, heat or power purposes shall be subject to a fine 
of not less than ten nor more than fifty dollars for each offence.

Louis K. Rourke, Commissioner for Boston.

This Commission was established by statute in 1870, to have charge 
of the maintenance of the West Boston, Canal or Craigie's, and the 
Prison Point bridges. (Statutes of 1870, Chaps. 300, 302.) In 1892 the

The powers of the Commission were greatly enlarged by Statutes of 
1898, Chapter 467, Section 14. This Act places all bridges and draws 
between the two cities in their charge, to support, manage and keep in 
repair, and to authorize exclusively the placing of poles, wires and other 
structures upon them. The expense of maintenance is borne equally 
by the City of Boston and the City of Cambridge. The two Commission- 
ers, who serve without pay, are appointed by the Mayors of Boston 
and Cambridge.

The Finance Commission is constituted under the Amended Charter. 
(Chapter 486, Acts of 1909.) It consists of five commissioners appointed 
by the Governor and confirmed by the Executive Council. The chair- 
man of the Commission is named by the Governor. The members of 
the Commission, other than the chairman, serve without pay. 

It is the duty of the Commission to investigate, at its discretion, all 
matters relating to appropriations, loans, expenditures, accounts and 
methods of administration affecting the City of Boston or the County 
of Suffolk, or any of their departments, and to report upon its investi- 
gations from time to time to the Mayor, the City Council, the Governor, 
or the General Court. 

The Commission is required to make an annual report, in January, to 
the General Court. It is also the duty of the Commission to report to 
the Mayor, the City Auditor or the City Treasurer as to the validity or 
proper amount of any doubtful pay-roll, bill or claim referred to it by them. 

The Commission has all the powers and duties conferred by Chapter 
562, Acts of 1908, upon the former Finance Commission, including the 
power to summon witnesses and secure papers. The term of the former 
Finance Commission, which expired by limitation on December 31, 1908, 
was extended till February 1, 1909. The present Commission qualified 
on June 24, 1909.

COMMISSIONEKS. 

George G. Crocker, Horace G. Allen. Appointed by the Governor. 
George F. Swain, Josiah Quincy, James B. Noyes. Appointed by 
the Mayor. Salary, $5,000 each. 

The Commissioners were originally appointed for the term of five years 
from the first of July, 1894. By Stat. 1899, Chap. 375, the term 
was extended to July 1, 1902. By Stat. 1902, Chap. 534, accepted by 
the voters of Boston at the Municipal Election of 1902, the term of the 
Commission was further extended to July 1, 1906. By Stat. 1906, 
Chap. 213, the term of the Commission was further extended to July 
1, 1909, and by Stat. 1909, Chap. 455, to July 1, 1911. 

The Commission had charge of the construction of the Tremont street 
subway (costing $4,368,000, including alterations), of the Charlestown 
bridge (costing $1,570,198), of the tunnel to East Boston (costing about 
$3,300,000), and the Washington street tunnel. This two-track tunnel, 
which is used for elevated railway trains exclusively, was opened for 
traffic on November 30, 1908. It is 1.16 miles long and cost about 
$8,500,000, of which the land damages amounted to $2,850,000. 

By Chapter 573, Acts of 1907, the Commission is further charged with 
the construction of an east and west subway, called the Riverbank subway, 
mainly under the Charles river embankment. The work of construction 
on the latter will probably begin in the last quarter of 1910. The Com- 
mission began constructing in September, 1909, under the provisions of 
Chapter 520, Acts of 1906, a tunnel under Beacon Hill from the new 
Cambridge bridge to the Park street station of the Tremont street 
subway, as a connection with the Cambridge subway now being built 
by the Boston Elevated Railway.

cost of the bridge is apportioned among three parties. The Boston Elevated 
Railway Company pays such portion as shall be rendered necessary by 
reason of the bridge being of additional size and strength for the use of 
the elevated railroad, and shall construct or pay for constructing its 
railway, both elevated and surface, across the bridge. The balance of 
the cost is payable one-half by the City of Boston and one-half by the 
City of Cambridge. This bridge was opened to the public and placed in 
charge of the Boston and Cambridge Bridge Commissioners in December, 
1907. The surface railway is now in operation, but the construction 
necessary for elevated railway service is not completed. 

The Commission has also had charge of the construction of the high- 
level bridge, known as the "Brookline street bridge," over the tracks 
of the Boston & Albany railroad and across the Charles river, between 
Essex street, Boston and Brookline street, Cambridge, which was com- 
pleted in 1907, and will supervise the rebuilding of the bridge across 
Charles river, between North Harvard street, Boston, and Boylston 
street, Cambridge, to be known as "Soldiers' Field bridge," and to be 
built with or without a draw, as the Commission may determine.

the Governor, with the advice and consent of the Council. The mem- 
bers must be citizens of Boston who have resided in the City for at least 
two years preceding the date of their appointment. The two principal 
political parties must be represented' and the term of the members is 
fixed at six years, after the first appointments, one member retiring every 
two years. The Board was created to exercise all the powers and per- 
form all the duties conferred or imposed upon the Board of Police of 
the City of Boston by Sections 10 to 90 (both inclusive) of Chapter 100 
of the Revised Laws and Amendments thereof, relative to intoxicating 
liquors; and by Chapter 102 of the Revised Laws and Amendments

110 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

The Franklin Foundation is incorporated under Chapter 569 of the 
Acts of 1908, and has sole charge of the Franklin Union, as well as the 
management of the Franklin Fund. 

The Franklin Fund is the proceeds of a bequest of one thousand pounds 
to "the Inhabitants of the Town of Boston in Massachusetts" made by 
Benjamin Franklin, in a codicil to his will dated June 23, 1789. The 
codicil provided that the fund "if accepted by the inhabitants of the 
Town of Boston" be managed "under the direction of the Selectmen, 
united with the Minister of the oldest Episcopalian, Congregational, 
and Presbyterian Churches in that Town," who were to make loans on 
certain conditions to "young married artificers under the age of twenty- 
five years." 

Dr. Franklin, who died April 17, 1790, calculated that, in one hundred 
years, the thousand pounds would grow to £131,000, "of which," he 
says, "I would have the managers then lay out at their discretion £100,000 
in Public Works which may be judged of most general utility to the 
Inhabitants. The remaining £31,000, I would have continued to be 
let out on interest for another hundred years. At the end of this second 
term, if no unfortunate accident has prevented the operation, the sum 
will be £4,061,000, of which I leave £1,061,000 to the Town of Boston, 
and £3,000,000 to the disposition of the Government of the State, not 
presuming to carry my views farther." The Town accepted the donation 
at a Town Meeting held June 1, 1790. 

A futile suit brought by the Franklin heirs in 1891 prevented the division 
of the fund at the expiration of one hundred years; but on January 17, 
1894, by direction of the three Ministers and the Board of Aldermen 
of the City, which board claimed to be the successors of the "Selectmen," 
$329,300.48 (iff of the fund) was paid to the City Treasurer, for "the 
purchase of land and the erection thereon of the Franklin Trades School 
and for the equipment of the same." Owing to a series of complications 
the money has remained in the custody of the Treasurer. Mayor Collins, 
in 1902, caused a petition of the City to be filed in the Supreme Court, 
praying for instructions as to the authority of the persons then acting as 
Managers of the fund. The Court rendered an opinion November 25, 1903 
(184 Mass. 373, page 43), to the effect that the three ministers were 
Managers of the fund under Franklin's will, but that the Aldermen did 
not succeed the "Selectmen" as Managers and had no powers with refer- 
ence to it. The Court, under its general power to care for public charitable 
funds, appointed, on March 16, 1904, the above Managers to take the 
place of the "Selectmen," and provided in the decree of the Court that 
the Mayor of Boston should be one, ex officio. On October 20, 1904, the 
City Treasurer, ex officio, was appointed by the Board of Managers as 
treasurer of the fund. 

On December 2, 1905, the City Treasurer received from Mr. Andrew 
Carnegie $408,396.48, said sum being the amount of the Franklin Fund, 
August, 1904, which Mr. Carnegie agreed to duplicate. 



OFFICERS PAID BY FEES. Ill 

On January 31, 1906, the amount available for expenditure by the 
Managers was $426,824.78. The Franklin Fund which, with its accu- 
mulations, will become available in 1991, amounted, on January 31, 
1910, to $192,689.84. 

The Franklin Trades School, or Franklin Union as it is now called, 
occupies its new building at the corner of Appleton and Berkeley streets, 
which was opened in September, 1908. The building contains 24 class- 
rooms and 6 draughting-rooms, and accommodates about 1,700 students. 
There is also a technical and scientific library, and a large hall with a 
seating capacity of 1,000 for lectures, concerts, discussions and similar 
purposes. The building with equipment cost about $366,000. The site 
was purchased in 1906 for $100,000.

The Board of Police for the City of Boston was established by Chapter 
323 of the Acts of 1885, and was composed of three citizens of Boston, 
appointed for five years from the two principal political parties by the 
Governor, with the advice and consent of the Executive Council. The 
Board assumed office on July 23, 1885. By Chapter 291 of the Acts of 
1906, the department was placed in charge of a single head, to be known 
as the Police Commissioner. 

The powers of the Board of Police, except those relating to the grant- 
ing of licenses, which were transferred to the newly created Licensing 
Board, devolve upon the Police Commissioner. The Police Commis- 
sioner assumed office June 4, 1906. 

The City is divided into sixteen Police Districts, in each of which is a 
station-house, the headquarters of a captain and force of men. The 
Commissioner appoints a Harbor Master and assistants from the police 
force, and they receive pay in accordance with their rank in the force. 
The police steamer "Guardian" and the steam launches "Ferret" and 
"Watchman" are employed in this service. 

By Chapter 279 of the Acts of 1903*, the Board of Police were required 
to ascertain, within the first seven days of May in each year, the num- 
ber of polls for assessment in the City of Boston and also to make lists 
of the women voters in the city.

PENSION FUNDS FOR TEACHERS. 

As provided by Chapter 589, Acts of 1908, Chapter 537, Acts of 1909, 
and Chapter 617, Acts of 1910, a permanent fund has been established by 
the School Committee for the payment of pensions to retired teachers of 
the public day schools. The care of said fund is vested in a board of three 
trustees, who serve without compensation. A teacher who has reached 
the age of sixty-five years, or who has served in the public day schools 
for thirty years, twenty of these in the schools of Boston, is entitled to the 
full pension. Smaller pensions are paid in proportion to length of service. 
No prospective beneficiary has to contribute to the fund. Entirely separate 
from this is the Teachers' Retirement Fund, established by Chapter 237, 
Acts of 1900. On January 31, 1910, 2,374 teachers were contributing 
thereto at the rate of $18 per year, and 166 annuitants were each receiving

REGULATION OF THE HEIGHT OF BUILDINGS. 

[Stat. 1904, Chap. 333; Stat. 1905, Chap. 383.] 
By Stat. 1904, Chap. 333, the Legislature provided that the City of 
Boston should be divided into two districts, designated as Districts A and 
B, and that if not repugnant to some other statute, buildings could be 
erected in District A to a height of 125 feet, but that except as to certain 
projections above the roof, no buildings could be erected in District B to a 
height greater than 80 feet. A commission consisting of Nathan Matthews, 
Joseph A. Conry, and Henry Parkman was appointed by Mayor Collins, 
June 7, 1904, to determine the limits of these districts, and it made a pre- 
liminary order on July 5, 1904, which was revised December 3, 1904. Under 
Stat. 1905, Chap. 383, the Legislature made certain minor changes in the 
law, and also authorized the erection of buildings to a height not exceeding 
100 feet in such parts of District B, and on such conditions, as a commission 
should determine. The same commission was reappointed under this act 
and made a preliminary order July 21, 1905, which was revised November 
20, 1905. [See Document 133, 1905.] 

District A includes the waterfront regions extending around East Bos- 
ton, Charlestown, and the northerly and westerly sides of South Boston as 
far as East First and West First streets, Dorchester avenue, and Southamp- 
ton street, a narrow strip extending through Wards 12 and 9 east of Albany 
street to Broadway, thence the boundary line extends northwesterly and 
westerly through Pleasant, Piedmont, and Ferdinand streets to Columbus 
avenue, thence across to the corner of Boylston and Arlington streets, along 
Boylston to Tremont, thence to Park, Beacon, Bowdoin, and Cambridge 
streets, thence through Cambridge, Staniford, Green, and Leverett streets to 
Charles River Dam. Of the City Proper, all of Ward 6, nearly all of Ward 
7 and the northeastern half of Ward 8 are within District A. 



136 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

* 
District B comprises all other territory in the City. In this district 
buildings may in general be erected to a height of not more than 80 feet, but 
on streets exceeding 64 feet in width the height may be equal to one and a 
quarter times the width of the widest street upon which the building stands, 
said height to be measured from the mean grade of the curbs of all streets 
upon which the building is situated and not to exceed in any event 100 feet 
above such point of measurement. On all. streets or portions of streets 
upon which buildings may be. erected on one side only, the buildings may 
be erected to a height of 100 feet. No building may be erected to a 
height greater than 80 feet unless its width on each and every public street 
upon which it stands be at least one-half its height. Certain special 
exceptions to the general regulations affecting District B have been made 
as follows: 

1. No building can be erected to a height greater than 70 feet, measured 
on its principal front, in the territory bounded by Beacon street, Joy street, 
Myrtle street, Hancock street and Hancock avenue. 

2. So long as the property owned by the City of Boston on Dalton, 
Belvidere and Scotia streets shall be used for a Mechanic Arts High School 
any building or buildings thereon may be erected to a height of 100 feet. 

3. Buildings may be erected to a height not exceeding 125 feet in that 
portion of District B which lies 50 feet westerly from the boundary line 
running from Columbus avenue to the centre of Boylston street separating 
District A- from District B, provided that said portion of District B is 
owned by the same person or persons who own the adjoining premises in 
District A. 

4. No building can be erected on a parkway, boulevard or public way 
on which a building line has been established by the Board of Park Com- 
missioners or by the Board of Street Commissioners acting under any 
general or special statute, to a greater height than that allowed by the order 
of said Boards. 

5. No building upon any land, any owner of which has received and 
retained compensation in damages for any limitation of height, or who 
retains any claim for such damages, can be erected to a height greater than 
that fixed by the limitation for which such damages were received or 
claimed.

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 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, passed by the City Council 
and approved by the Mayor. 2 Certain questions were raised, how- 
ever, in the General Court of 1886, relative to establishing State, sena- 
torial 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 terri- 
torial and other boundaries existing on the first day of May, 1885, and 
that the new ward divisions were illegal. 3 On account of this opinion 
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, pre- 
cincts, 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 notwithstanding. The new divi- 
sion 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 Chapter 417 of the Acts of 1893, as below. According 
to this act, a city may be redivided into wards in every tenth year after 
1895, but this is not mandatory. In 1905 a new division of the City was 
attempted by the City Council, but neither of the plans submitted was 

adopted.

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 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.
