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 183^ 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 the 
same appeared in 1897. The Amended Charter of 1909 
was added in 1910, while the alphabetical list of Alder- 
men and Councilmen since 1822 was dropped. 

By the direction of the Committee on Rules The 
Municipal Register of 1912 has been compiled by the 
Statistics Department. Text and tables have been 
revised, and various new tables, with additional text, 
have been incorporated, including statistics of Hyde 
Park, now Ward 26. 



MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



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 '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, 

* Old Style. 



ORIGIN AND GROWTH OF BOSTON. 7 

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 30,295 
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, 1737, 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. 349, 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 incorporateci^ 
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. 
(9) Hyde Park January 1, 1912, by St. 1911, c. 469, and 583, 
accepted November 7, 1911. Incorporated a Town April 22, 
1868.

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," pubHshed 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 
aboHshed. The ofiicials 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 may, 
subject to the approval of the mayor, from time to time establish such 
ofiices, 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 
be in force as if adopted by the city council unless previously withdrawn 
by the mayor. Nothing herein shall prevent the mayor from again 

Note. — The Amended City Charter is contained in Chap. 486, Acts of 1909, con- 
sisting of sixty-three sections. We have omitted §§ 35 to 44 inclusive, as these concern 
the alternative amendments which became inoperative on the adoption of Plan 2 by the 
voters at the State election, November 2, 1909.

presenting an ordinance or loan order which has been rejected or with- 
drawn. The city council may originate an ordinance or loan order and 
may reduce or reject any item in any loan and, subject to the approval 
of the mayor, may amend an ordinance. All sales of land other than 
school lands, all appropriations for the purchase of land other than for 
school purposes, and all loans voted by the city council shall require a 
vote of two thirds of all the members of the city council; and shall be 
passed only after two separate readings and by two separate votes, the 
second of said readings and votes to be had not less than fourteen days 
after the first. No amendment increasing the amount of land to be sold

or altering the disposition of purchase money or of the proceeds of loans 
shall be made at the time of the second reading and vote. 

Sect. 3. All appropriations, other than for school purposes, to be 
met from taxes, revenue, or any source other than loans shall origi-

fiscal year shall submit to the city council the annual budget of the current 
expenses of the city and county, and may submit thereafter supplemen- 
tary budgets until such time as the tax rate for the year shall have been 
fixed. The city council may reduce or reject any item, but without the 
approval of the maj'or shall not increase any item in, nor the total of a 
budget, nor add any item thereto, nor shall it originate a budget. It 
shall be the duty of the city and county officials, when requested by the 
mayor, to submit forthwith in such detail as he may require estimates 
for the next fiscal year of the expenditures of the department or office 
under their charge, which estimates shall be transmitted to the city council. 

The city auditor may, with the approval in each instance of the mayor, 
at any time make transfers from the appropriation for current expenses 
of one division of a department to the appropriation for current expenses 
of any other division of the same department, and from the reserve fund 
to any appropriation for the current expenses of a department; and may 
also, with the approval of the mayor, at any time between December first 
and February first, make transfers from any appropriation to any other 
appropriation: provided, however, that no money raised by loan shall be 
transferred to any appropriation from income or taxes. He may also 
with such approval apply any of the income and taxes not disposed of 
in closing the accounts for the financial year in such manner as he may 
determine. 

Sect. 4. Every appropriation, ordinance, order, resolution and vote 
of the city council, except votes relating to its own internal affairs, shall be 
presented to the mayor, who shall make or cause to be made a written 
record of the time and place of presentation, and it shall be in force if 
he approves the same within fifteen days after it shall have been presented 
to him, or if the same is not returned by him with his objections thereto 
in writing within said period of fifteen days. If within said period said 
appropriation, ordinance, order, resolution, or vote is returned by the 



AMENDED CITY CHARTER. 21 

mayor to the city council by filing the same with the city clerk with his 
objections thereto the same shall be void. If the same involves the expen- 
diture of money, the mayor may approve some of the items in whole or 
in part and disapprove other of the items in whole or in part; and such 
items or parts of items as he approves shall be in force, and such items or 
parts of items as he disapproves shall be void.

and city council at any time may by ordinance reorganize, consoUdate, 
or aboMsh departments in whole or in part; transfer the duties, powers, 
and appropriations of one department to another in whole or in part; 
and estabhsh new departments; and may increase, reduce, establish or 
abolish salaries of heads of departments, or members of boards. Nothing 
in this act shall authorize the aboUtion or the taking away of any of 
the powers or duties as established by law of the assessing department, 
building department, board of appeal, children's institutions department, 
election department, fire department, Franklin Foundation, hospital

held by the city council, of which at least seven days' notice shall have 
been given in the City Record. 

Sect. 7. The city council at any time may request from the mayor 
specific information on any municipal matter within its jurisdiction, 
and may request his presence to answer written questions relating thereto 
at a meeting to be held not earher than one week from the date of the 
receipt of said questions, in which case the mayor shall personally, or 
through a head of a department or a member of a board, attend such 
meeting and publicly answer all such questions. The person so attend-

the purchase of materials, supplies or real estate; nor in the construc- 
tion, alteration, or repair of any public works, buildings, or other prop- 
erty; nor in the care, custody, and management of the same; nor in the 



22 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

conduct of the executive or administrative business of the city or county; 
nor in the appointment or removal of any municipal or county employee; 
nor in the expenditure of pubUc money except such as may be necessary 
for the contingent and incidental expenses of the city council. The pro- 
visions of this section shall not affect the powers or duties of the city coun- 
cil as the successor of the present board of aldermen relative to state

It shall be unlawful for the mayor or for a member of the city coun-

a contract with the city or with the county of Suffolk, or to receive any 
commission, discount, bonus, gift, contribution or reward from or any 
share in the profits of any person or corporation making or performing 
such contract, unless such mayor, member of the city council, officer, 
or employee or member of the finance commission immediately upon 
learning of the existence of such contract or that such contract is pro- 
posed, shall notify in writing the mayor, city council, and finance com- 
mission of such contract and of the nature of his interest in such contract 
and shall abstain from doing any official act on behalf of the city in reference 
thereto. In case of such interest on the part of an officer whose duty it 
is to make such contract on behalf of the city, the contract may be made 
by any other officer of the city duly authorized thereto by the mayor, 
or if the mayor has such interest by the city clerk: provided, however, 
that when a contractor with the city or county is a corporation or voluntary 
association, the ownership of less than five per cent of the stock or shares 
actually issued shall not be considered as being an interest in the contract 
within the meaning of this act, and such ownership shall not affect the 
vaUdity of the contract, unless the owner of such stock or shares is also 
an officer or agent of the corporation or association, or solicits or takes 
part in the making of the contract. 

A violation of any provision of this section shall render the contract 
in respect to which such violation occurs voidable at the option of the 
city or county. Any person violating the provisions of this section shall

the case may be, and that they approve the appointment. Upon the 
filing of this certificate the appointment shall become operative, subject 
however to all provisions of law or ordinance in regard to acceptance

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 $25,990 of this appropriation 
was used in 1911 for the purchase of books and periodicals. The Library 
also holds trust funds a,ggregating $448,749, 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 
pubhshed. The series closed in 1896. 

A Quarterly Bulletin of a new series is now issued, and a weekly Hst 
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; 
twelve branch hbraries with independent collections of books; sixteen 
reading-room stations (minor branches), all of which contain deposits of 
books from the Central Library, reference books and periodicals. There 
were, on February 1, 1912, in the Central Library, Branch Libraries and 
reading-rooms, 559 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-eight stations, by 
library wagons, there is a daily exchange of books and cards, whereby 
persons Hving in outlying districts can draw books from the Central 
Library without the necessity of coming in person. 

The dehvery or deposit of books is also undertaken in one himdred 
and ten pubhc and parochial schools, thirty-three institutions and sixty- 
one 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 formaUty. Special cards 
for more extended pri\'ileges are issued to clergsonen 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, 1912, there were 89,162 card-holders having the right to draw 
books for home use. The total number of volumes was 1,006,717, and of 
different newspapers and periodicals currently received at the Central 
Library and branches about 2,152. Books issued in 1911, for home use 
and for use through schools and institutions, numbered 1,612,270; of 
reference use, on account of the freedom with which books may be 
consulted, no adequate statistics are kept.

to Harvard College, was taken, and the name Bussey Park was added to 
the title. All the land in these tracts not required for driveways and walks, 
a quarry reservation and traffic road, was leased to Harvard College, to be 
used only for the purposes of an arboretum under the trusts created by 
the wills of Benjamin Bussey and James Arnold. The arboretum is open 
to visitors daily from 7 A.M. until sunset. 

The Franklin Park Zoological Garden, now being constructed on the

REGISTRY DEPARTMENT. 89 

The first water document published by the City of Boston appeared 
in 1825. The pubhc introduction of water from Lake Cochituate took 
place on October 25, 1848. The history of the Boston Water Works up 
to January 1, 1868, has been written by Nathaniel J. Bradlee; from 1868 
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 metropolitan 
water supply, Boston being included among the municipahties thus to be 
supphed. 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 1911 was 85,571,500 gallons, or 124 gallons per capita. This 
daily average is 1,775,200 gallons less than that reported for 1910.

annually by the Mayor for a term of three years from May 1. The Board 
has published annual reports since 1871. The amended City Charter, 
Sect. 26, prohibits the further establishing of sinking funds, but an 
exception was afterwards made by the Legislature regarding loans for 
Rapid Transit purposes. It also prohibits the depositing of City or 
County money in any bank of which any member of the Board of 
Sinking Funds Commissioners is an officer, director or agent.

WIRE. DEPARTMENT. 95 

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 underground, 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 Umits 
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 required 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 underground. Under 
Section 2 of the same Act, the Commissioner is authorized to grant such 
terminal pole locations as may be in his judgment necessary, and under 
Section 3 he is authorized to make such rules and regulations relating 
to the insulation of overhead and underground wires, cables and con- 
ductors and appliances as may be reasonably 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. 

Section 1 of Chapter 347, Acts of 1908, was repealed in 1911, as pro- 
vided by Chapter 364, and the Commissioner was therein required to 
prescribe not more than three miles of streets in 1912 and each year there- 
after to 1916 inclusive, within which all wires, cables and conductors shall 
during the calendar year be removed (with the poles or other structures 
supporting them) and placed underground. Certain wires of street rail- 
ways, etc., are excepted.

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

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 "j^oung married artificers under the age of twenty- 
five years." 

Dr. Franklin, wIto 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 b}' 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 (llJy 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 Frankhn Fund, 
August, 1904, which Mr. Carnegie agreed to duplicate. 

On January 31, 1906, the amount available for expenditure by the 
Managers was $426,824.78. The Frankhn Accumulating Fund, which 
will become available in 1991, amounted, on January 31, 1912, to 
$208,898.14. 

The Franklin Trades School, or Franklin Union as it is now called, 
occupies its own building at the corner of Appleton and Berkeley streets, 
which was opened in September, 1908. It is maintained by the income 
from the Franklin Union Trust Fund, the latter amounting to $475,876 
on January 31, 1912. The building contains 24 classrooms and 6

draughting-rooms, where 1,700 or more students receive free instruction. 
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 $400,000. 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 poUtical 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 Pohce Commissioner. 

The powers of the Board of Police, except those relating to the grant- 
ing of intelligence office, billiard and pool, common victualers' and 
liquor 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 poUce steamer "Guardian" and the steam launches "Ferret" and 
"Watchman" are employed in this service. 

By Chapter 279 of the Acts of 1903, as amended by Chapter 440 of 
the Acts of 1909, the Board of Police were required to ascertain, within 
the first seven days of April in each year, the name, age, occupation and 
residence of every male person twenty years of age or over in the City of 
Boston and also to make lists of the women voters.

By Chapter 291 of the Acts of 1906, the powers and duties of the Board 
of Police relative to the listing and registration of voters were transferred 
to a Listing Board, to be composed of the Pohce Commissioner and one 
member of the Board of Election Commissioners to be annually appointed 
by the Mayor of Boston. Such member must belong to that one of the 
two leading parties of which the Police Commissioner is not a member. 
In case of disagreement the Chief Justice of the Municipal Court becomes 
a member for the purpose of settling such disagreement. 

By Chapter 440, Acts of 1909, the time for the police listing was 
changed to the first week of April.

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 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 Ues 50 feet westerly from the boundary line 
rvmning 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 Une has been estabUshed 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 Umitation 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.

150 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



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 estabhshed 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 established as the wards, precincts, 
and assessment districts of said cities, any acts or ordinances of the city 
councils of said cities to the oontrary 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. 

A new ward (Ward 26) was added to the twenty-five wards of the City 
existing since 1895, by the annexation of Hyde Park Jan. 1, 1912, as pro- 
vided by Chapter 469, Acts of 1911. 

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

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

STATISTICS 

OF 

Population and Area. 



224 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



ENUMERATED POPULATION OF BOSTON, APRIL 15, 1910, 
670,585. 



ESTIMATED POPULATION, APRIL 15, 1912, 

711,120. 



According to the returns of the United States Bureau of the Census, 
the population of Boston on April 15, 1910, was 670,585. This shows an 
increase of 109,693, or 19.56 per cent, in the population since June 1, 1900, 
when it was 560,892 (Federal census) ; and of 12.63 per cent, over that of 
May 1, 1905, viz., 595,380, enumerated by the State Census. 

' The estimated population of the City as of April 15, 1912, based on the 
observed increase from June 1, 1900, to April 15, 1910, is 711,120, including 
Ward 26 (Hyde Park). The Census of 1910 by wards and precincts is 
shown on the following page. 

Since 1875 the only considerable amount of territory annexed to Boston 
is Hj'de Park, whose population on April 15, 1910, was 15,507, and esti- 
mated to be, at same date in 1912, 15,987. 

The following statement shows the population in each census year, with 
the absolute and relative increase, for 35 years, 1875-1910, by intercensal 
periods: 

Per cent, of 
Population, Census Years. Period. Increase. Increase. 

1875 341,919 

1880 362,839 1875-1880 20,920 6.12 

1885 390,393 1880-1885 27,554 7.59 

1890 448,477 1885-1890 58,084 14.88 

1895 496,920 1890-1895 48,443 10.80 

1900 560,892 1895-1900 63,972 12.87 

1905 595,380 1900-1905 34,488 6.15 

1910 670,585 1905-1910 75,205 12.63 

Among American cities, Boston has ranked fifth in population since 1890, 

but now it is a close rival of St. Louis for fourth place again, which it held 

in 1880.

Note. — The existing wards are the same as those created by ordinance in 1895, but four- 
teen precincts were added in the fifteen years ending 1910, 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. For- later 
additions see page 159. 

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.
