INTRODUCTION. 



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 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 1914 has been compiled by the 
Statistics Department. Text and tables have been 
revised, and various new tables, with additional text, 
have been incorporated.

0EIG1N 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, 

* Old Style. 



ORIGIN AND GROWTH OF BOSTON. 7 

when " Mount Woollaston" was set off as Brain tree, 
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 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. 
(9) Hyde Park January 1, 1912, by St. 1911, c. 469, and 583, 
accepted November 7, 1911. Incorporated a Town April 22, 
1868.

MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 




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 'Sictjt 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.

questions of order, subject to an appeal. Any member may appeal 
from the decision of the chair, and, when properly seconded, no other

order until the question on appeal has been decided. The question shall

unless a majority of the votes are to the contrary.

Rule 8. The president shall appoint all committees, fill all vacancies 
therein, and designate the rank of the members thereof.

acter of another member shall make an apology in open session at the

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 may, 
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 
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 the amount to be paid for the purchase of land, or the amount of loans, 
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- 
nate with the mayor, who within thirty days after the beginning of the 
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 mayor 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. 

Sect. 5. Except as otherwise provided in this act, the organization, 
powers, and duties of the executive departments of the city shall remain 
as constituted at the time when this section takes effect; but the mayor 
and city council at any time may by ordinance reorganize, consolidate, 
or abolish departments in whole or in part; transfer the duties, powers, 
and appropriations of one department to another in whole or in part; 
and establish 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 abolition 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 
department, library department, overseers of the poor, schoolhouse 
department, school committee, or any department in charge of an official 
or officials appointed by the governor, nor the abolition of the health 
department.

or for the collection, removal, or disposal of refuse, extending over a 
period of more than one year from the date thereof, shall be valid without 
the approval of the mayor and the city council after a public hearing 
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 earlier 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- 
ing shall not be obliged to answer questions relating to any other matter. 
The mayor at any time may attend and address the city council in person 
or through the head of a department, or a member of a board, upon such 
subject as he may desire. 

Sect. 8. Neither the city council, nor any member or committee, 
officer, or employee thereof shall, except as otherwise provided in this 
act, directly or indirectly on behalf of the city or of the county of Suf- 
folk take part in the employment of labor, the making of contracts, 
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 public 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 
or military aid and soldiers' relief. 

It shall be unlawful for the mayor or for a member of the city coun- 
cil or for any officer or employee of the city or of the county of Suffolk 
or for a member of the finance commission directly or indirectly to make 
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 
validity 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 
be punished by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars, or by 
imprisonment for not more than one year, or both. Chapter five hundred 
and twenty-two of the acts of the year nineteen hundred and eight is 
hereby repealed.

law appointed by the governor), shall be appointed by the mayor with- 
out confirmation by the city council. They shall be recognized experts 
in such work as may devolve upon the incumbents of said offices, or 
persons specially fitted by education, training or experience to perform

of the nominee under such rules as they may, with the consent of the 
governor and council, establish, and, if they conclude that he is a com- 
petent person with the requisite qualifications, they shall file with the 
city clerk a certificate signed by at least a majority of the commission 
that they have made a careful inquiry into the qualifications of the 
appointee, and that in their opinion he is a recognized expert, or that 
he is qualified by education, training or experience for said office, as 
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 
of office, oath of office, and the filing of bonds. If the commission does 
not within thirty days after the receipt of such notice file said certificate 
with the city clerk the appointment shall be void.

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 $31,160 of this appropriation 
was used in 1913 for the purchase of books and periodicals. The Library 
also holds trust funds aggregating $479,742, 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; 
thirteen branch libraries with independent collections of books; seventeen 
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, 1914, in the Central Library, branch libraries and 
reading-rooms, 568 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 thirty 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 thirty-nine public and parochial schools, thirty-six institutions and 
sixty-two fire company houses. 

Cards allowing the use of two books without restriction as to class, 
for two weeks, are issued to all residents of Boston 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 
February 1, 1914, there were 96,505 card-holders having the right to draw 
books for home use. The total number of volumes was 1,067,103, and of 
different newspapers and periodicals currently received at the Central 
Library and branches about 2,152. Books issued in 1913, for home use 
and for use through schools and institutions, numbered 1,848,973. Of 
reference use, on account of the freedom with which books may be 
consulted, no adequate statistics are kept.

The Overseers of the Poor in the Town of Boston, a corporation estab- 
lished in 1772 by act of the Legislature, in 1864 were succeeded by the 
corporation called "Overseers of the Poor in the City of Boston," consist- 
ing of twelve residents of Boston, four of whom are appointed annually 
to serve for the term of three years from the first day of May. The 
Board has issued annual reports since 1865. 

The Overseers of the Poor are also incorporated as a Board of Trus- 
tees of John Boylston's and other charitable funds, left for the assist- 
ance of persons of good character and advanced age, "who have been 
reduced by misfortune to indigence and want." 

In charge of the Overseers are the Wayfarers' Lodge on Hawkins street, 
which shelters homeless men who are out of employment, exacting some 
kind of work for their board, and the Temporary Home on Chardon street 
for women and children. The total amount of the seventeen permanent 
charity funds in the custody of the Overseers on February 1, 1914, was 
$858,603.

Power to establish parks in Boston was granted by the Commonwealth 
on May 6, 1875, subject to acceptance by the people. This act was 
accepted by a vote of the citizens on June 9, 1875; yeas, 3,706, nays, 2,311. 
The first Board of Park Commissioners was appointed on July 8, 1875, and 
confirmed on July 15, 1875. The Board consisted of three members who 
served without compensation. As thus constituted, the department 
continued up to 1913, when, by the provisions of Chapter 10, Ordinances of 
1912, which went into effect in March, 1913, it was merged with the Public 
Grounds, Bath and Music Departments, under the name of Park and 
Recreation Department. The chairman of the new Board of Commis- 
sioners is a salaried official and is required to devote his entire time to the 
work, likewise the Deputy Commissioner.

each on Blackstone, Franklin, Central, Independence and Sullivan 
Squares, also Union Park and Massachusetts Avenue; Lyman

Since the City's park development began, in 1877, the total expenditure, 
to the close of 1913, for parks, parkways and playgrounds (exclusive of 
the annual maintenance appropriation), is $20,383,563, or $8,941,571 
for the land and $11,441,992 for construction. 

The Arnold Arboretum (the "tree museum" of Harvard University), 
containing originally 122.6 acres, was added with other lands, in 1882, 
to the City's park system, under a special contract with Harvard Uni- 
versity, and in 1895 another tract of 75 acres (Peters' Hill), also belonging 
to the University, was included, the name Bussey Park being added to 
the title. All the land in these tracts not required for driveways and walks, 
a quarry reservation and traffic road is used, under the trusts created by 
the wills of Benjamin Bussey and James Arnold, for Harvard's extensive 
collection of specimens of such trees and shrubs as will live in this climate. 
The City maintains the roads and walks, also attends to policing the 
grounds. The arboretum is open to visitors daily from 7 A.M. until 
sunset. 

The new Franklin Park Zoological Garden on the northern side of the park 
is designed to occupy sixty to eighty acres when completed. Up to Feb- 
ruary 1, 1914, the amount expended for construction, etc., was $264,222, 

Note. — In June, 1912, an appropriation of §20,000 was made for a monument to be 
erected in honor of Wendell Phillips. This is not yet finished.

and for animals $10,766. In the summer of 1912, the group of bear dens, 
the aquatic flying cage, etc., were finished and put on exhibition, and in 
1913 the bird house and other attractions were added. The new Marine 
Park Aquarium, costing $144,530 for construction, etc., and $1,248 for 
specimens, was opened to the public on November 28, 1912. The entire 
outlay for both has been appropriated from the George F. Parkman Fund 
income. 

GEORGE F. PARKMAN FUND. 

By the will of the late George F. Parkman, various real estate properties 
worth between $5,000,000 and $6,000,000 were left to the City, the income 
therefrom to be expended for the maintenance and improvement of the 
Common and such parks as were in existence January 12, 1887, and no 
part of it to be used for the purchase of additional land for park purposes. 
The bequest was accepted by the City Council, March 9, 1909, since which 
date most of the realty has been sold and the proceeds invested in munic- 
ipal and other bonds. On February 1, 1914, the piincipal of the fund in 
the custody of the City Treasurer amounted to $4,889,176. In the fiscal 
year, 1913-14, the income from the fund was $192,809, i. e., about four 

per cent.

SEWER AND WATER DIVISION. 

Offices, City Hall Annex, sixth and seventh floors. 

Frank A. McInnes, Division Engineer. Salary, $5,000. 

Edward F. Mtjrphy, Engineer in charge of Sewer Service. Salary, $3,500. 

James A. McMtjrry, Engineer in Charge of Income Branch, Water Service. 

Salary, $2,500. 
Christopher J. Carven, Engineer of Maintenance, Water Service. Salary, 

$2,700. 
Frederic I. Winslow, Engineer of Extension, Water Service. Salary, 

$2,400. 

The Division Engineer of this division has charge of the preparation of 
plans for and the construction of new sewers, the repairing and cleaning 
of existing sewers and catch-basins, the granting of permits for making 
sewer connections, and the investigation of complaints in regard to defec- 
tive drainage; the care and maintenance of all pipes and other fixtures 
and appliances held by the City for the purposes of its water supply, 
including the laying and relaying of pipes, the installation and testing of 
meters and the placing of public drinking fountains, also the assessing of 
water rates and issuing of the bills therefor. Assessments upon the estates 
benefited by new sewers are not levied by the Public Works Department 
but by the Board of Street Commissioners. 

The total length of common and intercepting sewers in the City on 
January 1, 1914, was 870 miles; of supply and distributing water mains 
January 1, 1914, 825.44 miles; number of water meters then in use, 
41,654, or 8,163 more than in 1913 at same date; number of public fire 
hydrants, 8,858; number of public drinking fountains, 157, of which 82 
are fitted with hygienic bubble fixtures and 73 are for animals only. 

The first water document published by the City of Boston appeared 
in 1825. The public 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 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 



94 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

$12,531,000. Payments to the State by the City for its supply of water 
have been regularly made since 1898. The total number of water rate 
payers (i. e., to the City) on January 1, 1914, was 100,626 and the daily 
average amount of water used in 1913 was 79,390,600 gallons, or 108 
gallons per capita. This daiby average is 10,646,900 gallons less than that 
reported for 1912. 

HIGH PRESSURE FIRE SERVICE. 

By the provisions of Chapter 312, Acts of 1911, the Commissioner of 
Public Works was authorized to install an efficient system of high pressure 
fire service for the City, appropriations therefor, amounting to $1,000,000, 
to be voted by the City Council in sums of not less than $150,000 each 
year for six years. The supply of water for this purpose will be taken 
from the Charles river and a pumping station is soon to be constructed.

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 underground, and to 
remove all unexempted poles and structures in the streets within the said

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

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

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

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.

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

The Commission 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 Main street subway built by

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." 

* The Managers serve without compensation. 



122 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 (}§£ 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 equal to the amount of the Franklin 
Fund, August, 1904, which Mr. Carnegie agreed to duplicate. Only the 
annual income from this fund is used. 

On January 31, 1907, the amount of the "accumulated" fund available 
for expenditure by the Managers was $438,741.89, and in that year the 
Franklin Union Building was erected at the corner of Appleton and Ber- 
keley streets. It was opened for the use of the Franklin Trades School, 
or Franklin Union as it is now called, in September, 1908, and is main- 
tained by the income from the above mentioned Franklin Fund (i. e., 
the Andrew Carnegie Donation), amounting to $480,086.93 on January 
31, 1914. The building contains 24 classrooms and 6 draughting-rooms, 
where 1,500 to 1,600 students receive instruction, the fees ranging from 
$4 to $15, according to length of course. 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 $402,718. The site was purchased in 1906 for 
$100,000. 

The Franklin Accumulating Fund, which will become available in 1991, 
amounted, on January 31, 1914, to $226,750.67.

pointed by the Governor for the term of three years. They appoint a secre- 
tary. The Commissioners grant commissions as pilots for Boston Harbor 
to such persons, approved by the trustees of the Boston Marine Society, 
as they consider competent, and cause the laws of pilotage to be observed. 
The compensation of the Commissioners and their allowance for office 
rent, clerk hire, etc., is fixed by the trustees of the Boston Marine Society, 
and is paid from the amounts received from pilotage returned by the 
pilots. Any surplus therefrom is paid to the Boston Marine Society.

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 intelligence office, billiard and pool, skating rink, picnic grove, 
bowling alley, common victualers' and liquor licenses, which were trans- 
ferred to the newly created Licensing Board, devolve upon the Police 
Commissioner. The present Police Commissioner assumed office June 4, 
1906, for a term of five years and was reappointed in 1911 for another term. 

The City is divided into eighteen 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," 
"Watchman" and "Alert" are employed in this service. 

By Chapter 279 of the Acts of 1903 the Board of Police were required 
to ascertain each year the name, age, occupation and residence on May 1 
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 Police 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 political 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.

TERMS, HOLIDAYS AND VACATIONS OF DAY SCHOOLS. 

The school year begins on the first day of September in each cal- 
endar year and closes on August 31 of the following calendar year. 

All day schools are in session from the second Wednesday in September 
up to and including the Wednesday of the second calendar week pre- 
ceding the Fourth of July, except on Saturdays and Sundays and the 
following vacations and holidays; Columbus Day (October 12); from 
12 o'clock noon on the day before Thanksgiving Day until the following 
Monday; from 12 o'clock noon on the second calendar day immediately 
preceding Christmas Day to and including the first day of the following 
January; the Twenty-second of February; Good Friday; the week 
beginning with the first Monday in April; the Nineteenth of April; 
Memorial Day and the Seventeenth of June. Whenever any of the 
aforesaid holidays, except the first day of January, falls upon Sunday, 
the schools are not in session on the following Monday. Graduating 
exercises are held during the second calendar week preceding the Fourth 
of July. 

MEDICAL INSPECTORS AND NURSES. 

Regular medical inspection of the schools has been maintained since 
1894, under the supervision of the Health Department. For list of the 
86 School Physicians, see that department. For results of medical inspec- 
tion during the year 1913, see Table IX.-4, Bulletin of Statistics Depart- 
ment, Vol. XV., Nos. 10, 11, 12. In that year 114,567 physical examina- 
tions were made. 

Chapter 357, Acts of 1907, provided for the appointment by the School 
Committee of one supervising female nurse and as 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 
instruction to the pupils as will promote their physical welfare. For the 
seventy elementary school districts there are now thirty-five nurses in 
the service, besides the supervising nurse. 

PHYSICAL TRAINING. 

By Chapter 295, Acts of 1907, the School Committee were authorized 
to organize and conduct physical training and exercises, athletics, sports 
and games and to provide therefor proper apparatus and facilities in the 
buildings, yards and playgrounds under their control, also to make similar 
use of all such facilities in charge of the Park Commissioners as the latter, 
with the Mayor's approval, might deem suitable. 

The sum available for this branch of education is four cents on each 
$1,000 of the City's assessed valuation, which in the year 1913-14 was 
$57,610. Besides this, a special appropriation of $13,000 was provided 
for equipment, etc. 

There are now a director and two assistant directors of physical train- 
ing, four instructors in athletics and about 125 playground teachers, the 
latter having charge of games, etc., in the 29 schoolyard playgrounds 
and 46 park playgrounds in use. 



SCHOOL DEPARTMENT. 139 



INDUSTRIAL SCHOOLS PARTLY MAINTAINED BY STATE. 

By Chapter 505, Acts of 1906, amended by Chapter 540, Acts of 1909, 
the State especially encourages the establishing of independent industrial 
schools, allowing financial aid for their maintenance proportionate to the 
amount raised by local taxation and expended for all public schools. 
Under this arrangement, the School Committee is reimbursed by the State 
to the extent of one-half of the net maintenance cost of the five industrial 
schools established in Boston thus far with the approval of the State 
Board of Education, viz.: Boston Industrial School for Boys, Trade 
School for Girls, Evening Industrial School, Evening Trade School and 
the Continuation School. 

MANUAL TRAINING ROOMS. 

There are seven manual training rooms located in high schools, one in 
each of the following named districts : Brighton, Charlestown, Dorchester,

USE OP SCHOOL PROPERTY FOR SOCIAL AND CIVIC PURPOSES. 

By the provisions of Chapter 195, Acts of 1912, the School Committee 
may allow the school property under their control to be used by associa- 
tions and individuals for social, recreative and civic purposes such as 
may be of benefit to the community, with the understanding that such 
use shall nowise interfere with the regular school work, and that no 
admission fee shall be charged. The School Committee may annually 
appropriate for this purpose a sum equal to two cents on each $1,000 of 
the City's assessed valuation. This plan was started by establishing 
four Evening Centers, each having a manager, in four high schoolhouses, 
viz.: Charlestown, East Boston, Roxbury and South Boston, beginning 
in October, 1912, and continuing five months. Two more were started in 
1913, viz., the Washington Center, in Washington schoolhouse and the 
Dorchester Center in the high schoolhouse there. A variety of study clubs, 
lectures, concerts and other entertainments are included in these activities. 
The basements of 104 schoolhouses are used by the Election Department 
as polling places. In eleven of the school halls municipal concerts are 
given and in one schoolhouse (Copley School) there are municipal baths. 

PENSION AND RETIREMENT FUNDS FOR TEACHERS. 

As provided by Chapter 589, Acts of 1908, amended by Chapter 617, 
Acts of 1910, the School Committee, by a majority vote of all its members, 
may retire with a pension any member of the teaching or supervising 
staff of the public day schools who has reached the age of sixty-five years, 
also such other members as are incapacitated for further efficient service. 
If the, teacher retired has been employed in the public day schools for 
thirty years or more, ten years of which has been in Boston, the pension 
paid amounts to one-third of the annual salary received at time of retire- 
ment, but in no case is it less than $312 nor more than $600 annually. 
If the period of service is less than thirty years, the pension is proportion- 
ally less. The School Committee are authorized to provide for these 
pensions by appropriating annually an amount equal to five cents on each 
$1,000 of the City's assessed valuation. The Permanent School Pension 
Fund thus accumulated amounted to $200,891, February 1, 1914. 

The Boston Teachers' Retirement Fund Association, started in 1900, 
is paying $180 per year to 253 annuitants, and the total amount of its 
fund on February 1, 1914, was $400,819. At that date 2,660 teachers 
were each contributing $18 per year to this fund.

tion, training or experience for the performance of that duty in a manner 
which shall preserve public safety and conform to the laws, ordinances, 
rules and regulations relating to the construction, alteration, removal or 
tearing down of buildings or structures in the city of Boston. 

Sect. 2. The qualifications of such persons shall be determined by a 
board of examiners as hereinafter provided; and no permit for the doing 
of work described in section one of this ordinance shall be issued by the 
building commissioner unless the application for a permit therefor con- 
tains the name, address and signature of a person who is duly licensed) 
as hereinafter provided, to take personal charge or control of such work; 
provided, however, that a permit may be granted if no person licensed as 
aforesaid has been named in the application therefor whenever the work 
in question is of minor importance, and, in the opinion of the building 
commissioner, stated in writing with his reasons therefor upon the applica- 
tion for such permit, the work is of such simple character that its execu- 
tion will not endanger the safety of the public, or of any person engaged 
thereon. 

Sect. 3. There shall be in the building department a board to be called 
the board of examiners. Said board shall consist of three members to be 
appointed by the mayor in accordance with the provisions of sections

CITY ORDINANCES OF 1912-13. 153 

examination shall be held within thirty days after the date of the organiza- 
tion of the board, and shall be advertised once a week for three successive 
weeks in the daily papers published in the city of Boston, and in the 
City Record. Due notice of subsequent examinations shall be posted in 
the offices of the building department and of the board of examiners and 
published in the City Record. 

The board shall establish various classes of persons to be registered, shall 
determine the qualifications required for each class, and after examination 
shall register in each class the persons found to possess the requisite qualifi- 
cations therefor. The name and address of each person so found to be 
qualified, with the designation of the class in which he is registered, shall 
thereupon be certified by the board to the building commissioner who 
shall make a record of the same which shall be open to public inspection. 

Sect. 5. Any person who shall by affidavit, together with such other 
evidence as may be required by the board, show to the board that prior 
to the passage of this ordinance he has had charge or control of the con- 
struction, alteration, removal or tearing down of buildings or structures 
in the class in which he applies to be registered, and shall satisfy the board 
that he is qualified by education, training or experience to have charge or 
control of such work, may, without any other examination, be registered 
in said class and be certified to the building commissioner as a person 
qualified within such class. 

Sect. 6. The building commissioner, upon the payment of a fee of 
two dollars, shall issue a license to each person certified by the board, and 
such license shall not be transferred. The fees received by the board and 
by the building commissioner shall be paid over to the city collector at 
least once a week. 

Sect. 7 A person who has been duly licensed as aforesaid shall be entitled 
to have charge or control of any work described in section one of 
this ordinance, in the class in which he is registered, until his license is 
revoked or suspended by the building commissioner upon the order of the 
board. No license shall be revoked or suspended except upon proof of 
charges, filed with the board by the building commissioner or other person, 
specifying that the licensee has been careless or negligent in the perform- 
ance of his duty in connection with work under his charge or control, or 
has caused or permitted a violation of the building laws in connection 
therewith, or that such laws have been violated in connection with such 
work when the licensee knew, or, in the exercise of due diligence, should 
have known, that such violation had occurred. Upon learning of such 
carelessness, or neglect of duty, or of such violation of law, the building 
commissioner shall file charges with the board and prosecute the same. 
Upon the filing of such charges by the building commissioner, or other

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 



162 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 
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. x 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 fines, 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. The deferred redi vision will undoubtedly be made in 1915. 

A new ward (Ward 26) was added to the twenty-five wards of the City 
existing since 1S95, by the annexation of Hyde Park on January 1, 1912, as 
provided by Chapter 469, Acts of 1911. 

i 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 division of the city into wards passed December 23, 1885.

Population and Area. 



232 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



ENUMERATED POPULATION OF BOSTON, APRIL 15, 1910, 

670,585. 



ESTIMATED POPULATION, APRIL 15, 1914, 

737,433. 



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, 1914, based on 
the observed increase from June 1, 1900, to April 15, 1910, is 737,433, 
estimated by districts as follows: Boston Proper, 204,346; Dorchester, 
132,983; Roxbury, 123,127; South Boston, 73,472; East Boston, 64,596; 
West Roxbury, 49,729; Charlestown, 41,827; Brighton, 30,822; Hyde 
Park, 16,531. 

The Census of 1910, by wards and precincts, is shown on page 233; 
by sex and nativity on page 234; by country, of birth, for foreign born 
whites, on page 235 ; and the change in each ward since 1905, on page 239. 

Since 1875 the only considerable amount of territory annexed to Boston 
is Hyde Park, whose population on April 15, 1910, was 15,507, and esti- 
mated to be, at date of annexation, January 1, 1912, 15,936. 

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

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.

Total of City 670,585 



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 175. 

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.
