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 Registee. 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 1915 has been compiled by the 
Statistics Department. 



MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



OEIGIN 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 WooUaston" 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 pubhc 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,

THE CITY SEAL 
As it appeared prior to 1827. 

The City Seal was adopted by ''An Ordinance to 
Establish the City Seal," passed January 2, 1823, which 
provides ''That the design hereto annexed, as sketched 
by John R. Penniman, giving a view of the City, be the 
device of the City Seal; that the motto be as follows, 
to wit: 'Sicut patribus sit Deus nobis'; and that the 
inscription be as follows: — 'Bostonia condita, A.D. 
1630. Civitatis regimine donata, A.D. 1822.'" The 
motto is taken from 1 Kings, viii., 57. 

The seal as it then appeared is shown above. 

The seal as it was afterwards changed, and has ever 
since continued to be used, first appeared on page 221 
of the volume of laws and ordinances, commonly known 
as the "First Revision," published in 1827, and is con- 
tinued as the City Seal at the present time by Revised 
Ordinances of 1898, Chapter 1, Section 5, which provides 
that "The seal of the City shall be circular in form; 
shall bear a view of the City; the motto 'Sicut Patei- 
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 on the second page.

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 
Januarj^, 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 theState 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- 
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.

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 abohtion or the taking away of any of 
the powers or duties as established by law of the assessing department,

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 pubficly 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.

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

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, 1S78, 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 Central 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 $47,144 of this appropriation 
was used in 1914 for the purchase of books and periodicals. The Library 
trust funds in the custody of the City Treasurer amounted to $517,631 on 
February 1,1915, the annual interest on these being used for 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; 
fourteen branch libraries 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, 1915, 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 work only 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 Trustees serve without compensation. 



LIBRARY DEPARTMENT. 65 

The delivery or deposit of books is also undertaken in one hundred 
and fifty-five public and parochial schools, thirty-eight 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, 1915, there were 107,463 card-holders having the right to draw 
books for home use. The total number of volumes was 1,098,702, and of 
different newspapers and periodicals currently received at the Central 
Library and branches about 2,200. Books issued in 1914, for home use 
and for use through schools and institutions, numbered 2,012,589. Of 
reference use, on account of the freedom with which books may be 
consulted, no adequate statistics are kept.

MARKET DEPARTMENT. 

Office in Rotunda of Faneuil Hall Market. 

[Rev. Ord. 1898, Chap. 1, § 4, tenth to twelfth; Chap. 25 and Chap. 47, 

§§60-65; Stat. 1895, Chap. 449, §26.] 
Patrick H. Graham, Superintendent of Markets. Salary, $3,000. Term 
ends in 1918. 

Faneuil Hall Market, proposed in Mayor Quincy's message of July 31, 
1823, and completed in 1826, was under the charge of a Clerk of the 
Market imtil an ordinance of September 9, 1852, established the office 
of Superintendent. According to the Revised Ordinances of 1898, Chap. 
1, §4, tenth, Faneuil Hall Market includes the lower floor, porches and 
cellar of the buildings called respectively Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. 
The Superintendent has charge and control of these two buildings. He 
may assign stands within their limits; and it is his duty, from time to 
time, to lease the stalls in the market for five years at rents not less than 
those established by the City Council. The market poUce are appointed 
by the Police Commissioner and under his control. 

As a municipal enterprise the Quincy Market has been steadily profitable, 
yielding a total net income in rentals, etc., of about $4,500,000 in the past 70 
years. Faneuil Hall Market yields $15,000 to $16,000 net yearly income, 
or about one-sixth that of Quincy Market. For a historical and financial 
article on "Public Markets in Boston" see Bulletin of Statistics Depart- 
ment for June, 1912.

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, 
opened in 1878, which gives free lodging to homeless men who are out of 
employment, but exacts work in its woodyard for meals furnished; and the 
Temporary Home on Chardon street for destitute women and children, 
opened in 1870. In the six months ending January 31, 1915, the num- 
ber of men aided was 27,216; of women and children, 917. The total 
amount of the seventeen permanent charity funds in the custody of the 
Overseers on February 1, 1915, was $876,293.

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.

Since the City's park development began, in 1877, the total expenditure, 
to the close of 1914, for parks, parkways and playgrounds (exclusive of 
the annual maintenance appropriation) is $20,732,700, or $9,181,545 
for the land and $11,551,155 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 wUl 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, 1915, the amount expended for construction, etc., was $296,254, 
and for animals $11,990. In the summer of 1912, the group of bear dens,

the aquatic flying cage, etc., were finished and put on exhibition, in 1913 
the bird house with other attractions and in 1914 the elephant house 
were added. The new Marine Park Aquarium, costing $144,530 for con- 
struction, etc., was opened to the pubhc 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, 1915, the piincipal of the fund in 
the custody of the City Treasurer amounted to $4,953,176. In the fiscal 
year, 1914-15, the income from the fund was $195,525, i. e., about four 

per cent.

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, 1915, was 899 miles; of supply and distributing water mains, 
838.57 miles; number of water meters then in use, 48,339 or 6,685 
more than in 1914 at same date; number of public fire hydrants, 9,132; 
number of public drinking fountains, 158, of which 104 are fitted with 
hygienic bubble fixtures and 54 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 abohshed 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- 



94 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 total number of water rate payers {i. e., to the City) on January 1, 
1915, was 101,765 and the daily average amount of water used in 1914 
was 81,877,800 gallons, or 109 gallons per capita. This daily average is 
2,487,200 gallons more than that reported for 1913. 

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. Up to February 1, 1915, the total of loans for this 
purpose was $685,000 and the total expenditui-e $445,952. The supply 
of water will be taken from the Charles river and a pumping station is 
soon to be constructed.

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 
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 sufiiciently insulated; 
to secure the removal of dead or abandoned wires, and the protection 
of all buildings by proper safety devices; to inspect all wires carrying 
electric light, heating or power current within buildings, and to see that 
all wires, posts, machinery and appliances are kept in good order and 
condition. 

Chapter 249 of the Acts of 1898 provides that in each of the years 
1900-1909, inclusive, the Commissioner of Wires shall prescribe the limits 



WIRE DEPARTMENT. 101 

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.

The Licensing Board for the City of Boston was established by Chapter 
291 of the Acts of 1906. It consists of three members, appointed by 
the Governor, with the advice and consent of the Council. The mem- 
bers must be citizens of Boston who have resided in the City for at least 
two years preceding the date of their appointment. The two principal 
political parties must be represented and the term of the members is 
fixed at six years; after the first appointments, one member retiring every 
two years. The Board was created to exercise all the powers and per- 
form all the duties conferred or imposed upon the Board of Police of 
the City of Boston by Sections 10 to 90 (both inclusive) of Chapter 100 
of the Revised Laws and Amendments thereof, relative to intoxicating 
liquors; and by Chapter 102 of the Revised Laws and Amendments 
thereof, relative to innholders and common victuallers. Chapter 423, Acts 
of 1909, relates to licensing the sale of ice cream, fruit, soda water and 
confectionery on Sunday. 

The Board also exercises all the powers and performs all the duties 
previously conferred or imposed by law on the Board of Police relative 
to the licensing of picnic groves, skating rinks, intelHgence offices, billiard 
tables and bowling alleys.

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

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

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

* The Managers serve without compensation. 



122 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

A futile suit brought by the FrankUn 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 (if^ of the fund) was paid to the City Treasurer, for "the 
purchase of land and the erection thereon of the FrankUn Trades School 
and for the equipment of the same." Owing to a series of complications 
the money remained in the custody of the Treasurer. Mayor Collins, 
in 1902, caused a petition of the City to be filed in the Supreme Court, 
prajdng 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 Frankhn'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 in 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 partly by the nominal registration fees, by rentals, and by the 
income (i. e., $22,640 yearly) from the above mentioned Franklin Fund 
{i. e., the Andrew Carnegie Donation), amounting to $481,258.74 on 
January 31, 1915. The building contains 24 classrooms and 6 draughting- 
rooms, where about 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, 1915, to $236,382.95.

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' aiid 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.

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 settUng 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 INSPECTOES AND NURSES. 

Regular medical inspection of the schools has been maintained since 
1894, under the supervision of the Health Department. In the school 
year 1914-15, the School Physicians employed in this work numbered 87. 
For results of the inspection during the year 1913, see Table IX.-4, Bulletin 
of Statistics Department, Vol. XV., Nos. 10, 11, 12. In that year 114,567 
physical examinations were made. Beginning September 1, 1915, the 
School Committee will have exclusive charge of medical inspection in the 
schools. 

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-eight 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 and Recreation Commis- 
sioners 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 1914-15 was 
$59,083. Besides this, a special appropriation of $22,963 was provided 
for playground activities. 



140 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

There are now a director, two assistant directors and one instructor of 
physical training, also 133 playground teachers, the latter having charge 
of games, gymnastics, etc., in the 29 schoolyard playgrounds and 50 park 
plaj^grounds in use. 

INDUSTRIAL SCHOOLS PARTLY MAINTAINED BY STATE. 

By Chapter 471, Acts of 1911, and Chapter 106, Acts of 1912, 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 the net maintenance cost of such indus- 
trials schools established in Boston thus far with the approval of the 
State Board of Education. By Chapter 805, Acts of 1913, Continuation 
Schools, for employed children between fourteen and sixteen years of age, 
were included under the same plan of State aid. The eight schools thus 
maintained are the Boston Industrial Day School for Boys, Evening Indus- 
trial School for Boys, Trade Day School for Girls, Evening Trade School 
for Girls, Evening Industrial School, Continuation School (Household Arts 
Class), Compulsory Continuation School, also Training Class for Con- 
tinuation School Teachers. In 1914-15 the amount received from the 
State for this purpose was $55,355. 

MANUAL TRAINING ROOMS. 

There are seven manual training rooms located in high schools, one in 
each of the following named districts : Brighton, Charlestown, Dorchester, 
East Boston, Jamaica Plain, South Boston and Hyde Park. In addition 
to these there are sixty-nine manual training rooms located in elementary

The term of the Evening Industrial Schools begins on the first Monday 
in October, and continues for twenty-four school weeks. The sessions 
are held on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings during the weeks 
that the other evening schools are in session. 

The central school is conducted in the Mechanic Arts High Schoolhouse, 
at the corner of Belvidere and Dalton streets, and the two branches are in 
the East Boston High Schoolhouse, Marion street, East Boston and Old 
Dearborn Schoolhouse, Dearborn place, Roxbury. At the Boston Indus-

also held. 

CONTINUATION SCHOOLS. 

Classes are held at the main building, 25 La Grange street, at 48 Boylston 
street, at 52 Tileston street and in various stores and factories. 

All children 14 to 16 years of age employed under an employment 
certificate are compelled by law (Chapter 805, Acts of 1913) to attend the 
school four hours per week. Sessions, 8 a. m. to 12 m. and 1 to 5 p. m., 
every week day except Saturday during the time the regular schools are 
at work. The courses of instruction include reading, writing and arith- 
metic, office procedure, business practice, salesmanship, prevocational and

Beginning January 3, 1916, advanced classes will be conducted in a 
course of twelve weeks, studying textiles and the shoe and leather industry. 
Classes in other similar studies may be added on demand. 

SUMMER REVIEW SCHOOLS. 

These supplementary schools, one high and six elementary, for pupils 
who have been retarded in their studies, were started on June 22, 1914. 
The term is forty days, morning sessions only, and the registration of 
pupils in 1914 was 4,193 in the elementary schools and 424 in the high 
school. 

USE OF 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 



DEPARTMENT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 143 

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. In 1914 the Abraham 
Lincoln Center on Ferdinand street was added, making seven. A variety 
of study clubs, lectures, concerts and other entertainments are included 
in these activities. The centers remain in session from October to June, 
on three alternate evenings a week with some variation as to days. Their 
membership is limited to persons over 14 years of age who are not pupils 
in the regular day schools. Widening interest in the centers has extended 
their activities to one or more afternoons each week. The appeal of the 
School Center that "every plus talent of a community be used through 
it" for mutual benefit is meeting with response. The basements of 103 
schoolhouses are used by the Election Department as polling places. 
In the larger school halls municipal concerts are given, and their use for 
public meetings of citizens is usually permitted when requested. 

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 
a period of 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 
retirement, 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 $201,699, February 1, 1915, and 
256 retired teachers were receiving pensions therefrom. 

The Boston Teachers' Retirement Fund Association, started in 1900, 
is paying $132 per year to 266 annuitants, and the total amount of its 
fund on February 1, 1915, was $421,428. At that date 2,767 teachers 
were each contributing $18 per year to this fund. 

By Chapter 304, Special Acts of 1915, the School Committee are 
authorized to appropriate annually, for the purpose of paying pensions to 
retired teachers, an amount equal to seven cents (instead of five cents, as 
hitherto) on each $1,000 of the City's assessed valuation. Hence, the 
total appropriation for the year 1915-16 was raised to $105,753.

Stat. 1912, Chap. 582; Stat. 1914, Chap. 786.] 
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 prehminary order July 21, 1905, which was revised November 
20, 1905. [See Document 133, 1905.] 



REGULATION OF THE HEIGHT OF BUILDINGS. 161 

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 Arhngton streets, along 
Boylston to Tremont, thence to Park, Beacon, Bowdoin, and Cambridge 
streets, thence through Cambridge, Stamford, 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. 



162 MUNICIP.IL REGISTER. 

No limitation of the height of buildings applies to churches, steeples, 
towers, domes, cupolas, belfries or statuary not used for pm-poses of 
habitation, nor to cliimneys, gas holders, coal or grain elevators, open 
balustrades, skylights, ventilators, fiagstaffs, railings, weather vanes, soil 
pipes, steam exhausts, signs, roof houses not exceeding 12 feet square 
and 12 feet high, nor to other similar constructions such as are usually 
erected above the roof line of buildings, nor to sugar refineries in District A. 

By Chapter 416, Acts of 1907, the width of Rutherford avenue in the 
Charlestown district, between Chapman street and the Mystic River 
tracks of the Boston & Maine Railroad crossing the northerly part of 
said avenue, was considered as 80 feet in respect to the height of build- 
ings that might be erected on the southwesterly and westerly side of said 
avenue, between the points mentioned, so as to permit the erection of 
buildings to the height of 100 feet, as provided for buildings erected on 
streets of the width aforesaid in District B. 

By Chapter 582, Acts of 1912, the height of City Hall Annex was per- 
mitted to be 133 feet above the grade of Court street, i. e., 8 feet in excess 
of the limit originally legalized for District A. 

By Chapter 786, Acts of 1914, the parcel of land boimded by Wasliing- 
ton street, Lovering place, Harrison avenue and Asylum street was exempted 
from the laws relative to the height of buildings which might be erected 
thereon, except that the limit of 125 feet remained in force.

MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



THE WARDS OF BOSTON. 



Wards with definite boundaries by streets were first established in 1715. 
There were eight wards, three in the North End and five in the South 
End, from that year until 1735, when the number was increased to twelve. 
The ward lines then fixed remained substantially imchanged for seventy 
years until the division made by the Selectmen in 1805. In 1822, when 
the town became a city, there was a redivision on the basis of the U. S. 
Census of 1820, the number still remaining twelve. Subsequent changes 
of ward boundaries were made in 1838, 1850, 1865, 1875, 1895 and lastly, 
that which was enacted December 28, 1914. In 1865 nine wards were 
added to provide for the annexed districts, in 1875 * and 1876 * the number 
was increased to 25 and in 1912 another annexation, viz.: Hyde Park, 
brought the total to 26. In 1885 an attempt was made by the City Coun- 
cil to make a new division of wards, 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, however, in the General Court of 1886, relative to establishing 
State, senatorial and representative districts, and as to whether such dis- 
tricts should be established according to the territorial boundaries of cities 
and towns and their wards as they existed on the first day of May, 1885, 
or whether new ward lines, as in the case of the City of Boston, should 
be followed. On May 21, 1886, the opinion of the Justices of the Supreme 
Judicial Court was asked by the Legislature on this matter, and they 
decided that the district divisions referred to must be made according to 
territorial and other boundaries existing on the first day of May, 1885, and 
that the new ward divisions were illegal.^ On account of this 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 coun- 
cils of said cities to the contrary notwithstanding. The new division of 
wards was thus set aside and the ward lines established in 1875 remained 
in effect until they were changed in 1895 and established under the pro- 

* 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.

visions of Chapter 417 of the Acts of 1893. 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 Coimcil, but neither of the plans submitted was adopted. 

Acting imder the authority of Chapter 630, Acts of 1914,* the City 
Council redivided the territory of the City, establishing the boundaries 
of 26 wards as below.

1816, 1821, 1823, 1850, 1854, 1858, 1859, 1876 and 1891 went through a second edition 
each; those of 1863 and 1876 were published also in a more elegant form; those of 1842 
and 1845 went through four editions each; that of 1857 through five. The orations from 
1771 to 1788, and the large paper editions of the orations of 1863, 1876 and 1900 are in

The names given above are copied from the orations as officially published. The

which had charge of the State Census of 1915 (as of April 1), the popula- 
tion of Boston on that date was 725,823. These figures are subject to 
correction, not having been officially certified. 

If found correct, this total shows an increase of 55,238, or 8.24 per 
cent, in the population since April 15, 1910, when it was 670,585 (Federal 
census); and of 21.91 per cent, over that of May 1, 1905, viz., 595,380, 
enumerated also by the State Census. 

Judging from the observed rate of increase from 1900 to 1910, it was 
expected that the census of 1915 would show a total population about 
24,000 larger than that reported. The falling off appears to be due to the 
abnormal decrease of immigration, especially dm-ing the first eight months 
of the European war. In the year ending April 1, 1915, the total number 
of immigrants coming to Massachusetts was 54,795 less {%. e., — 53 per 
cent) than in the year previous. 

As the results in detail of the State Census of 1915 are not yet avail- 
able, those pertaining to the Federal Census of 1910 are reprinted on 
the pages following. The enumeration by wards and precincts is shown 
on page 245; by sex and nativity on page 246; by country of birth, for 
foreign-born whites, on page 247; and the change in each ward since 
1905, on page 251. 

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:

Note. — -In accordance with chapter 279, Acts of 1903, amended by chapter 291, Acts of 1906, all male 
residents 20 years of age or more have been listed by the police annually on May 1. This date was changed 
to April 1 by chapter 440, Acts of 1909. In Boston only is the voting list prepared from this police canvass. 
Elsewhere in the state the Assessors' list of polls is the basis of the voting list. The "Polls Assessed," in the 
above table is the list made by the Assessing Department each year and includes all male residents 20 years 
of age or more who are liable for a poll tax. The excess (9,000 to 15,000) of "Men Listed" over " Polls Assessed" 
indicates the number of temporary residents, who are not liable for a poll tax.

THE NEW AND THE OLD WARDS COMPARED. 
On June 7, 1915, the City Council passed an order dividing the new 
wards, established on December 28, 1914, into "223 voting precincts con- 
taining as near 500 voters each as the natural configm-ation of the City will 
allow." The number of wards is 26, the same as before, while the precincts 
number two less than before. The comparison between the number of 
precincts and of voters in the new wards and the old is shown in the fol- 
lowing table:

RETIREMENT LAWS AND PENSIONS.* 

By Chapter 619, Acts of 1910, amended by Chapter 338, Acts of 1911, 
cities and towns are authorized to establish the retirement and contributory 
pension system therein set forth and applying to all municipal employees 
alike. The system has not become law in Boston because the City Coun- 
cil rejected it as impracticable. The classes of retired employees now 
receiving pensions are the police (since 1878), firemen (since 1880), school 
teachers (since 1908), judges, prison officers. Civil War veterans (since 
1911) and laborers, skilled and unskilled. The largest class, i. e., the 
laborers, were provided for by Chapter 413, Acts of 1911, accepted by 
the City Council on October 26, 1911. Any laborer sixty years of age 
or over, who has served the City for twenty-five years and is physically 
incapacitated shall, at his request, be retired from service, receiving for 
the remainder of his life an annual pension equal to one-haK of his pay 
for his final year's service. All retirements are subject to the approval 
of the Retirement Board, viz.; the Mayor, City Auditor and City Treas- 
urer, who serve without compensation. Retirement is compulsory when 
any laborer reaches the age of seventy. 

Chapter 367, Acts of 1913, specifies that the amount of the annual 
pension payable to such retired laborers, skilled laborers, mechanics, etc., 
is not to exceed $360. 

Chapter 765, Acts of 1914, provides that the Retirement Board, upon 
request of the Mayor and City Council, may retire any laborer employed 
by the City who, owing to injury, physical incompetency, old age or 
infirmity may be incapable of further performance of his work. 

Veterans of the Civil War in City service, if incapacitated for active 
duty, are retired, with the consent of the Mayor, at one-half pay, provided 
they have been in the City's service for at least ten years. This is in 
accordance with Chapter 113, Acts of 1911, which went into effect March 
8, 1911, the date of its approval. 

As provided by Chapter 459, Acts of 1910, veterans of the Civil War in 
the service of any county if incapacitated for active duty, may be retired 
by the County Commissioners, with the consent of the Governor, on half 
pay, when they have been ten years in the county service, and have 
reached the age of sixty-five. When necessary for the good of the service 
a veteran may be retired before reaching that age. 

On June 1, 1915, the total number of pensioners was 1,155, divided as 
follows: Laborers, 266; teachers, 256; firemen, 241; police, 233; veterans, 
145; various others, 14. Of the laborers, 229 were from the Public Works 
Department. 

The total of City and County pension payments in the fiscal year 
1914-15 was $515,525, divided as follows: Pohce Department, $155,030; 
Fire Department, $136,204; Public Works Department, $105,013; Depart- 
ment of School Committee, $84,006; Suffolk County, $12,633; Park and 
Recreation Department, $6,728; Health Department, $4,000; thirteen 
other departments, $11,911.

332 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

METROPOLITAN DISTRICT, OR "GREATER BOSTON." 
This consists, in the most inclusive sense, of 39 municipalities, including 
Boston, or 14 cities and 25 towns, all within 15 miles of the State House. 
The 7 cities in the first zone, i.e ., contiguous to Boston, are these, Viz.: 
Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Newton, Quincy, Revere and Somerville; the 
6 cities in the second zone, not contiguous, are, Lynn, Maiden, Medford, 
Melrose, Walthani and Woburn. The 7 contiguous towns are: Brookline, 
Dedham, Milton, Needham, Watertown and Winthrop; the 19 other 
towns are: Arlington, Belmont, Braintree, Canton, Cohasset, Dover, 
Hingham, HuU, Lexington, Nahant, Saugus, Stoneham, Swampscott, 
Wakefield, Wellesley, Weston, Westwood, Weymouth and Winchester. 
Area of district, 412 square miles; population by census of 1910, 1,42.3,429, 
or 254,641 larger than in 1900. Population, April 1, 1915, approximately 
1,556,984. Total valuation of taxable property in district on April 1, 
1914, $2,583,875,082, an increase of $65,339,514 over valuation in 1913. 
Of said total, 59.65 per cent, was in Boston and 40.35 per cent, outside. 
The Metropolitan Park District was established by chapter 407, Acts of 
1893, and includes all the cities and towns except Lexington. It is managed 
by a State Board of five commissioners. The Metropohtan Water District, 
established by chapter 488, Acts of 1895, includes 10 cities and 9 towns, 
covering an area of 170 square miles. The Metropohtan Sewerage Dis- 
trict, estabhshed by chapter 439, Acts of 1889, consisting of the North 
System and South System, includes 17 cities and towns in the former 
system and 8 in the latter, covering an area of 216 square miles. The last 
two districts are managed by a single State board of three commissioners. 
The Charles River Basin District, established by chapter 465, Acts of 1903, 
includes all the cities and towns except Cohasset and Lexington and is 
in charge of the Metropohtan Park Commission. The total gross Metro- 
politan debt for water, parks, sewers and Charles River Basin improve- 
ments on July 1, 1914, was $74,721,912; sinking funds, $18,008,801; 
net debt, $56,713,111, or $1,338,706 less than in 1913. The division of 
this net debt was: Water supply, $30,996,997; sewers, $13,056,276; 
parks, $8,916,120; Charles River Basin, $3,743,718. Of 1914 tax rates 
the highest among the towns was that of Saugus ($25.40), the lowest was 
Dover's ($5.50). No city had as low a tax rate as Boston's ($17.50), the 
next in rank being Waltham's ($18). The highest among the cities w^as 
Woburn's ($26). Mean tax rate of the 12 cities (Revere not included) in 
the district outside Boston, $21.48. There were in the district, in 1913, 
3,584 manufacturing establishments (newspaper and periodical concerns, 
etc., omitted), with 172,594 employees; value of product, $560,390,104; 
capital invested, $362,458,828; total wages paid, $107,031,822. If the 
newspaper and periodical estabhshments were included, the total output 
of manufactures during 1913 would approximate $585,000,000, Boston's 
share being about 46 per cent. 

Estimated population in 1910 within 25 miles of and including Boston, 
2,036,020; within 50 miles, 3,470,587.
