INTEODUCTION. 



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 was added last year while the alphabetical 
list of Aldermen and Councilmen since 1822 was dropped. 

By the direction of the Committee on Rules The 
Municipal Register of 1911 has been compiled by the 
Statistics Department. Text and tables have been 
revised, and several new tables, with additional text, 
have been incorporated.

OEIGIN AND GROWTH OF BOSTON. 



The Royal Patent incorporating the Governor and 
Company of Massachusetts Baj^ 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 'Hhat 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 
27,364 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) 'Ho 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 Patki- 
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.

64 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

The Trustees of the PubUc 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 $31,176 of this appropriation 
was used in 1910 for the purchase of books and periodicals. The Library 
also holds trust funds aggregating $440,350, the interest of which is devoted 
to the purchase of books. 

The annual repoi'ts, 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; sixteen 
reading rooms, all of which contain deposits of books from the Central 
Library, reference books and periodicals. There were, on February 1, 
1911, in the Central Library, Branch Libraries and reading rooms, 536 
employees, including 249 who are employed in the evening and on Sunday, 
some of whom also work during the week; and including also a certain 
number who only work a few hours or days in each week. 

Between the Central Library and these twenty-seven 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 eleven public and parochial schools, thirty 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 



LIBRARY DEPARTMENT. 65 

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 
February 1, 1911, there were 86,913 card-holders having the right to draw 
books for home use. The total number of volumes was 987,268, and of 
different newspapers and periodicals currently received at the Central 
Library and branches about 2,152. Books issued in 1910, for home use 
and for use through schools and institutions, numbered 1,602,225; of 
reference use, on account of the freedom with which books may be 
consulted, no adequate statistics are kept.

to 1876, by Desmond FitzGerald; of the "Additional Supply from Sud- 
bury River," by A. Fteley. In addition to the annual reports on the 
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 metropoUtan 
water supply, Boston being included among the municipalities thus to be 
supplied. A State Commission, the Metropolitan Water Board, in accord- 
ance 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 daily average amount of water 
used in 1910 was 87,346,700 gallons, or 130 gallons per capita.

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 has been deferred pending action by the Legislature on the 
proposed substitute, viz., a subway under Boylston street. 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 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. Tliis bridge was opened to the public and placed in

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-

FRANKLIN FOUNDATION. Ill 

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 Frankhn 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 Presbjiierian 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 (|M 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. 



112 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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, 
1911, to $200,628.78. 

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 mth equipment cost about $366,000. The site 
was purchased in 1906 for $100,000.

Inspectors of Schools, see that department. 

Chapter 357, Acts of 1907, provided for the appointment by the School 
Committee of one supervising female nurse and so many district female 
nurses as are deemed necessary. Their duties are to assist the medical 
inspectors in carrying out the latters' directions, and to give such

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 pubUc 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. 



COURT HOUSE COMMISSIONERS. 129 

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, 1911, 2,465 teachers were contributing 
thereto at the rate of $18 per year, and 201 annuitants were each receiving 
the uniform annuity of $180 per year. 

All teachers entering the service subsequent to the passage of said Act 
become thereby members of the retirement fund association and three 
dollars ($3) is deducted from their salary every alternate month and set 
aside and placed in this fund. For all teachers who were in the service 
prior to the adoption of the act, membership in the association is optional. 

In addition to the regular Teachers' Retirement Fund, there is the 
Teachers' Mutual Benefit Association, which comprises teachers in the 
permanent employment of the City. They may be admitted to this 
association by a two-thirds vote of the Board of Trustees, by ballot, and 
upon the payment of the initiation fee of three dollars ($3) and assessments. 
This is a mutual organization of teachers by which a teacher pays into the 
treasury one per cent of her annual salary and receives, upon becoming an 
annuitant, such annuities as the association is able to pay. The asso- 
ciation has a fund of about $120,000 and the income from this and 
the receipts from assessments are divided among the annuitants each year. 
The association also controls a private fund of $8,000.

REGULATION OF THE HEIGHT OF BUILDINGS. 147 



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. 

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 



148 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 boimded 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 Une 
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 estabUshed by the Board of Park Com- 
missioners or by the Board of Street Commissioners acting vmder 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.^ 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.^ 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.^ On account of this opinion 
of the Justices of the Supreme Judicial Court, an act was passed by the 
Legislature in June, 1886,* which provided that the several wards, pre- 
cincts, and assessment districts of the several cities of the Commonwealth, 
existing May 1, 1885, should be estabUshed 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.

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.

Note.— The existing wards are the same as those created by ordinance in 1895, but four- 
teen precincts have been added since then, viz. : Precincts nine to fifteen (inclusive) in Ward 20, 
ten, eleven and twelve in Ward 21, ten, eleven and twelve in Ward 24 and precinct nine in 
Ward 19, making the total number of precincts, 205 in 1910. 

According to chapter 417, Acts of 1893, a city may be redivided into wards in every tenth 
year after 1895, but this is not mandatory. After the State Census in 1905, a new division of 
Boston was attempted by the City Council, but neither of the plans submitted was adopted, 
and no division can now be made until 1915 unless sanctioned by a special legislative act.
