INTEODUCTION. 



The City has annually since 1821 issued a volume 
containing, until 1829, a register of the City Council 
and a list of the officers. In 1829 the City Charter, in 
1830 the Acts relating to Boston and the ordinances, 
and in 1832 an index, were added. The volume for 
1822 contains fifteen pages, and for 1840 eighty-five 
pages, and three pages of index. The volumes up to and 
including 1840 bear the title of The Rules and Orders 
of the Common Council and since that year the title 
of The Municipal Register. The Municipal Regis- 
ter for 1841 contains the Rules and Orders of the Com- 
mon Council, joint rules, ordinances of the City, statutes 
of the Commonwealth relating to the City, a list of the 
public schools, the City Government of 1841, the com- 
mittees and departments (consisting at that time of 
the treasury, law, police, health, public land and build- 
ings, lamps and bridges, fire, and public charitable 
institutions), and a list of the ward officers; from 1842 
to 1864 it also contains a list of the members of pre- 
ceding City Governments, a necrological record of those 
members, the latest ordinances and the special statutes 
relating to the City; in 1851 a list of the annual orators 
was added, and in 1853 a map of the City and the Rules 
of the Board of Aldermen were inserted; in 1876 sta- 
tistics of registration and voting were included, and, 
since 1879, in tabulated form; in 1883 portraits of the 
Mayor and presiding officers of the two branches of 
the City Council were included, and in 1888 a list of 
the members of the past City Governments of Roxbury 
and Charlestown was added and continued to 1890. 
From 1889 to 1896, inclusive. The Municipal Register 
contained a compilation of the Charter and Acts sub- 
sequently passed, in the place of which an index of the 
same appeared in 1897. The Amended Charter of 1909 
was added in 1910, while the alphabetical fist of Alder- 
men and Councilmen since 1822 was dropped. 

By the direction of the Committee on Rules The 
Municipal Register of 1917 has been compiled by the 
Statistics Department.

OEIGIN AND GEOWTH 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 foUomng 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 
no 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, BrookUne, Quincy, 
Braintree, Randolph and Holbrook, besides certain 
islands in the harbor. From 1637 till May 13, 1640,

ORIGIN AND GROWTH OF BOSTON. 7. 

when ''Mount Woollaston" was set off as Braintree, 
Boston exercised jurisdiction over a territory of at least 
40,000 acres. Within its present Umits there are 30,598 
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 on 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 wdthin 
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, bv 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.

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,

THE CITY SEAL 
As it appeared prior to 1827. 

The City Seal was adopted hy ''An Ordinance to 
Establish the City Seal," passed Januarj'- 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 1914, Chapter 1, Section 5, which provides 
that "The seal of the City shall be circular in form; 
shall bear a view of the City; the motto 'Sicut Patri- 
bus Sit Deus Nobis,' and the inscription, 'Bostonia 
Condita, A.D. 1630. Civitatis Regimine Donata, 
A.D. 1822,' as herewith set forth." 

The seal as changed in 1827, and as it has ever since 
appeared, is shown on the second page.

The Mayor and City Council. 

Section 1. The terms of office of the mayor and the members of both

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 necessar}^ 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 maj' fill 
the offices thus established and remove the incumbents at pleasure. 

Sect. 2. The mayor from time to time may make to the city coimcil 
in the form of an ordinance or loan order filed with the citj^ clerk such 
recommendations other than for school purposes as he maj^ 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 sLxtj' days it shall 
be in force as if adopted by the citj' council unless previously withdrawn 
by the mayor. Nothing herein shall prevent the mayor from again

fixed. The city coimcil 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 oflBcials, when requested by the

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.

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

The Trustees of the PubUc Library of the City of Boston, who are five 
in number, are appointed by the Mayor, one each year, for a term of five 
years. They were incorporated by an act of the General Court passed 
April 4, 1878, and were 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 pubUc 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 $33,561.09 of this appropriation was 
used in 1916 for the purchase of books and periodicals. The 37 Library 
trust funds in the custody of the City Treasurer amounted to $542,859 on 
February 1, 1917, 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 hst 
of new books added to the Library. The Trustees have issued also general

and special catalogues of the Central Library, and of its branches and 
special collections, as well as hand-books for readers, and other docu- 
ments. 

LIBRARY SYSTEM. 

The Library system consists of the Central Library in Copley square; 
fourteen branch hbraries with independent collections of books; sixteen 
reading-room stations (minor branches), all of which contain deposits of 
books from the Central Library, reference books and periodicals. There 
were, on February 1, 1917, in the Central Library, branch hbraries and 
reading-rooms, 570 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 hbrary 
wagons, there is a daily exchange of books and cards, whereby persons 
hving in outlying districts can draw books from the Central Library without 
the necessity of coming in person. 

The dehvery or deposit of books is also undertaken in one hundred 
and sixty-one 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 aU without formahty. 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, 1917, there were 104,325 card-holders having the right to draw 
books for home use. The total number of volumes was 1,139,682, and of 
different newspapers and periodicals currently received at the Central 
Library and branches about 2,200. Books issued in 1916, for home use 
and for use through schools and institutions, numbered 2,050,238. Of 
reference use, on account of the freedom with which books may be con- 
sulted, no adequate statistics are kept.

As a municipal enterprise the Quincy Market has been steadily profitable, 
yielding a total net income in rentals, etc., of about $4,.-j00,000 in the past 70 
years Faneuil Hall Market yields $15,000 to $16,000 net yearly income,

lished in 1772 by act of the Legislature, were succeeded in 1864 by the 
corporation caUed "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.

tees of John Boylston's and other charitable funds, left for the assistance 
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,

PARK AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT. 81 

Since the City's park development began, in 1877, the total expenditure, 
to the close of 191(5, for parks, parkways and playgrounds (exclusive of 
the annual maintenance appropriation) is $21,327,789, or $9,440,901 
for the land and $11,880,828 for construction. 

The Arnold Arboretum (the "tree museum" of Harvard University)* 
containing originally 122.0 acres, was added with other lands, in 1882, 
to the City's park system, under a special contract with Harvard Uni- 
versity, and in 189.5 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 Uve in this climatC' 
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, 1917, the amount expended for construction, etc., was $321,414, 
and for animals $12,314. 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 was appropriated from the George F. Parkman 
Fund income. 

GEORGE p. 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, 1917, the principal of the fund in 
the custody of the City Treasurer amounted to $5,178,687. In the fiscal 
year, 1916-17, the income from the fund was $197,424, i. e., nearly four 
per cent.

streets, alleys, parks and public grounds, also the setting up of all new 
lamps and the placing of glass street signs and nunribers therein.. 

In 1915 the Sewer and Water Division was merged with the Highway 
Division under the name of the latter, thus bringing the Sewer Service 
and the Water Service in charge of the Highway Division Engineer. 
Under his control are the preparation of plans for and the construction of 
new sewers, the repairing and cleaning of existing sewers and catch-ba.sins, 
the granting of permits for making sewer connections, and the investiga- 
tion of complaints in regard to defective drainage; the care and main- 
tenance of all pipes and other fixtures and appUances 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 pubhc 
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 Pubhc Works Department but by the Board of 
Street Commissioners (See Street Laying-Out Department). 

The total length of common and intercepting sewers in the City on 
February 1, 1917, was 940.91 miles; of supply and distributing water 
mains, 864.35 miles; number of water meters in use, 60,499 (on January 1) 
or 6,541 more than in 1916 at same date; number of pubhc fire h3-drant3, 
9,528; number of pubhc drinking fountains, 157, of which 87 are fitted 
with hygienic bubble fixtures and 70 are for animals only. 

The first water document pubhshed by the City of Boston appeared 
in 1825. The pubhc introduction of water from Lake Cochituate took 
place on October 25, 1848. The history of the Boston Water Works up 
to January 1, 1868, has been written by Nathaniel J. Bradlee; from 1868 
to 1876, by Desmond FitzGerald; of the "Additional Supply from Sud- 
bury River," by A. Fteley. In addition to the annual reports on the 
Cochituate supply, from 1850, and of the Mystic supply, from 1866, there 
are numerous special reports. By chapter 449, Acts of 1895, the Boston 
Water Board, the Water Income Department and the Water Registrar 
were abohshed and the Water Department created, a single commissioner 
being entrusted with all the powers previously exercised bj' 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 mimicipahties thus to be 
supphed. A State commission, the Metropohtan 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 pmnping 
station there, with adjacent lands. The sum paid to the Citj' was 
$12,531,000. Payments to the State by the City for its supply of water 
have been regularly made since 1898. In the existing Metropohtan 
Water District are nine cities, besides Boston, and nine towns. Boston 
took 76.2 per cent of the entire water supply of the District in 1915. 

The total number of water rate payers {i. e., to the City) on Januarv 1, 
1917, was about 103,500 and the daily average amount of water used in 
1916 was 80,358,000 gallons, or 105 gallons per capita. This daily average 
is 2,706,200 gallons more than that reported for 1915.

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 undergroimd, and to 
remove all unexempted poles and structures in the streets within the said 
district before January 1, 1900. 

He was authorized to supervise and inspect both underground and 
overhead wires, cables and conductors; to regulate the direction of such 
wires, cables and conductors, and see that they were sufficiently insulated; 



104 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 189S provided that in each of the years 
1900-1909, inclusive, the Commissioner of Wires should prescribe the limits 
of a district within which, for not more than two miles of streets, ave- 
nues, or highways, certain wires, cables and conductors were to be removed 
or placed underground during the calendar year. 

By Chapter 347 of the Acts of 1908, the Commissioner was required to 
extend the same improvements to other streets, i. e., two miles each j^ear 
to 1919, inclusive. Under Section 2 of the same Act, the Commissioner 
was authorized to grant such terminal pole locations as were in his judg- 
ment necessary, and under Section 3 he was authorized to make such rules 
and regidations relating to the insulation of overhead and underground 
wires, cables and conductors and appliances as were reasonably necessary 
for the pm'poses of safety The Commissioner is sole judge of what con- 
stitutes proper and safe insulation of electric conductors and appliances 
within buildings. 

According to Chapter 339, Acts of 1908, any person, firm or corpora- 
tion faiUng to notify the Commissioner of the instaUing of wiring or appa- 
ratus for electric hght, 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 (instead of two miles, as hitherto) 
of streets in 1912 and each year thereafter to 1916, inclusive, within which 
all wires, etc., were to be removed (with the poles or other structm'es 
supporting them) and placed underground. 

By Chapter 196, Acts of 1916, the powers conferred and the duties 
imposed upon the Commissioner of Wires by legislation in 1911 and j-ears 
prior thereto were extended from 1917 to 1121, inclusive.

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 FrankUn, -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 Pubhc 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 Frankhn 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 (13? 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 compUcations 
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, 
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 wiU, 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 chari- 
tal")le funds, appointed, on March 16, 1904, a Board of Managers to take 
the place of the "Selectmen," and provided in the decree of the Court 



MEDICAL EXAMINERS FOR SUFFOLK COUNTY. 125 

hat 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. Androw 
Carnegie $408,396.48, said sum being equal to the amount of the Franklin 
Fund in August, 1904, which Mr. Carnegie agieed 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 yeat 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. This is main- 
tained partly by the nominal registration fees, by rentals, and by the

The Board of PoUce 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 pohtical parties by the 
Governor, with the advice and consent of the Executive Council. The 

* Term ends in 1921. 



134 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

Board assumed office on July 23, 18S5. By Chapter 291 of the Acts of 
1906, the department was placed in charge of a single head, to be known 
as the PoUce Commissioner. 

The powers of the Board of Pohce, except those relating to the grant- 
ing of intelhgence office, biUiard and pool, skating rink, picnic grove, 
bowHng alley, common victualers' and liquor hcenses, which were trans- 
ferred to the newly created Licensing Board, devolve upon the Pohce 
Commissioner. The present Police Commissioner assumed office June 4, 
1906, for a term of five years, was reappointed in 1911, and again in 1916. 

The City is divided into nineteen Pohce 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 pohce 
force, and they receive pay in accordance with their rank in the force. 
The pohce steamer "Guardian" and the steam launches "Ferret," "Watch- 
man" and "Alert" are employed in this service. 

By Chapter 91, General Acts of 1915, the duties devolving upon the 
Pohce Commissioner as to the annual hsting of resident men, 20 years of 
age or over, also of women voters, were transferred to the Board of 
Assessors. This did not prove to be satisfactory, and in 1917, by Chapter 
29, General Acts, the Police Commissioner was again entrusted with this 
annual listing. 

On December 1, 1916, the police force numbered 1,622 men, including 
25 captains, 26 inspectors, 40 lieutenants, 107 sergeants, 1,326 patrolmen 
and 95 reservemen. There were 19 men in the signal service, whose 
director has charge of 489 signal boxes. In the calendar year 1916 the 
number of persons arrested was 97,232, of which 67.65 per cent were for 
drunkenness and 38.42 per cent were not residents of Boston. Foreign- 
born persons arrested, 41,829 ; women and girls, all ages, 9,081 ; 'boys under 
15 years of age, 2,225. In year ending November 30, 1916, persons 
imprisoned, 8,124; persons fined, 13,610, the fines amounting to $114,788; 
stolen propertj'- recovered, $311,530; licenses granted, 21,081 (including 
9,272 for dogs and 8,261 for vehicles), for which $42,440 was received; 
prosecutions for violation of automobile laws, 4,441. 

Salaries: Captains, $3,000 per annum; inspectors and heutenants, 
$2,000 per annum; sergeants, $1,750 per annum; patrolmen, first year's 
service, $1,000; second year's, $1,100; third year's, $1,200; fourth year's,

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 facihties in the 
buildings, yards and playgrounds under their control, also to make similar 
use of all such facihties 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 1916-17 was 
$61,521. Besides this, a special appropration of $22,183 was provided 
for playground activities. 

There are now thirteen instructors and nine assistant instructors of 
physical training, also 150 playground teachers, the latter having charge 
of games, gymnastics, etc., in the 34 schoolyard playgrounds and 55 park 
playgrounds 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 pubhc schools. Under this 
arrangement, the School Committee is reimbursed by the State to the 
extent of one half the net maintenance cost of such industrial schools 
estabhshed 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 four schools thus maintained are 
the Boston Trade School (for Boys), day and evening, Trade School for 
Girls, day and evening, Voluntary Continuation School and Compulsory 
Continuation School. In 1916-17 the amount received from the State 
for this purpose was $56,452. 

MANUAL TRAINING ROOMS. 

There are six manual training rooms located in high schools, one in 
each of the following named districts: Brighton, Charlestown, Dorchester, 
East Boston, Hyde Park and West Roxbury. In addition to these there 
are sixty-eight manual training rooms located in elementary schools, viz. : 
Seven in East Boston, five in Charlestown, nine in Boston proper, nine in 
South Boston, eleven in Roxbury, three in Jamaica Plain, two in Roslin- 
dale, one in West Roxbury, fifteen in Dorchester, one in Mattapan, one 
in Brighton, two in Allston and two in Hyde Park.

DEPARTMENT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 147

USE OF SCHOOL PROPEIITY FOR SOCIAL AND CIVIC PURPOSES. 

By the provisions of Chapter H).'}, 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. The School Com- 
mittee may annually appropriate for this purpose a sum equal to two 
cents on each $1,000 of the City's assessed valuation, which in the year 
1916-17 amounted to $34,256. 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. Three more have since 
been opened, viz., the North End, in Hancock schoolhouse; West End, 
in Wells schoolhouse, and the Dorchester Center in the high schoolhouse 
there. A variety of study clubs, lectures, concerts and other enter- 
tainments are included in these activities. The centers remain in session 
from the third Friday in October to June 30, on three 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. Widen- 
ing interest in the centers has extended their activities to one or more 
afternoons each week. Persons attending the various meetings and 
entertainments in nine months ending June 30, 1916, numbered 212,416. 
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 120 schoolhouses are used by the Election Department as 
polUng places. 

PJ2NSI0N 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 super\'ising staff 
of the pubUc 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 3'ears 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 S600 annually. K 
the period of service is less than thirty years, the pension is proportionally 
less. The School Committee were authorized to provide for these pensions 
by appropriating annually an amount equal to five cents on each 81,000 
of the City's assessed valuation. This allowance was increased b}* Chap . 



148 



MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



304, Special Acts of 1915, to seven cents on each $1,000. The Perma- 
nent School Pension Fund amounted to $246,296, February 1, 1917, and 
286 retired teachers were receiving pensions therefrom. 

The Boston Teachers' Retirement Fund Association, started in 1900, 
is paying $120 per year to 283 annuitants, and the total amount of its fund 
on February 1, 1917, was $493,817. At that date 2,826 teachers were each 
contributing $18 per year to this fund.

Wherever a boundary line of District A is described as following a cer- 
tain street, the same is intended to include all property on that side of the 
street which lies within the described area, and also that portion of all 
lots on the opposite side of the street, abutting on the street, but extending 
to a depth of not more than 150 feet. 

District B comprises all territory in the City outside the boundaries 
above described. 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: 

No building can be erected to a height greater than 70 feet, measured 
on its principal front, in the territory bounded bj^ Beacon, Joy, MjTtle and 
Hancock sts. and Hancock ave. 

So long as the property owned by the City of Boston on Dalton, Bel- 
videre and Scotia sts. shall be used for a Mechanic .Ai'ts High School 
any building or buildings thereon may be erected to a height of 100 feet. 

No building can be erected on a parkwa}', boulevard or public way 
on which a building line has been established by the Board of Pai"k Com- 
missioners or by the Board of Street Commissioners acting imder any 
general or special statute, to a gi-eater height than that allowed b}* the order 
of said Boards. 

No building upon any land, any owner of which htis received and retained 
compensation in damages for any limitation of height, or who retains 
anj' claim for such damages, can be erected to a height gi-eater than that 
fixed by the limitation for Avhicli such damages were received or claimed. 

No limitation of the height of buildings applies to churches, steeples, 
towers, domes, cupolas, belfries or statuary not used for piu-poses of 
habitation, nor to chimneys, gas holders, coal or grain elevators, open 
balustrades, skylights, ventilators, flagstaffs, 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 ave. in the 
Charlestown district, between Chapman st. and the Mystic River 
tracks of the B. & M. R.R. 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 bounded by Wash- 
ington St., Lovering place, Harrison ave. and Asylum st. 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. 

Certain parties being aggi'ieved by the order of November 2, 1916, 
and filing petitions for its revision, the Commission, after due consideration, 
revised the order on January 12, 1917, excluding from District A and 
including in District B a certain tract of land bounded by Boylston and 
Providence sts., St. James ave., Blagden st., etc., near Copley square.

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 unchanged 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 towTis 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 Jvards. 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 thiw act, a city 
may be redivided into wards in every tenth year after 1895, but thia is 
not mandatory. In 190.5 a new division of the City was attempted by 
the City Council, but neither of the plans submitted was adopted. 

Acting under the authority of Chapter G.30, Acts of 1914,* the City 
Council redivided the territory of the City, establishing the boundaries 
of 26 wards as below.

On June 7, 1915, the City Council passed an order di\'iding the new 
wards, established on December 28, 1914, into "223 voting precincts con- 
taining as near 500 voters each as the natural configuration of the City will 
allow." The number of wards is 26, the same as before, while the precincts 
number two less than before. For description of the boimdary of each new 
ward and precinct, see preceding pages, viz., 177 to 231. The comparison

kSTATISTICS 

OF 

Population and Area. 



248 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



Enumerated Population of Boston, 

APRIL 1, 1915, 
•745,439. 

Estimated population, July i, 1917, 

774,037. 



According to the State Bureau of Statistics, which had charge of the 
State Census of 1915 (as of April 1), the population of Boston on that 
date was 745,439 {i. e., 369,434 males and 376,005 females), an increase 
of 74,854, or 11.16 per cent, since April 15, 1910, when it was 670,585 
(Federal census); and of 25.2 per cent, over that of May 1, 1905, viz., 
595,380, enumerated also by the State Census. 

This State Census of 1915 was taken according to the new ward and 
precinct boundaries, as established in 1914 and 1915. The complete figures 
for the 223 voting precincts with ward totals and per cent of each ward to 
whole city are shown on the next page. 

Comparison with the census figures of earlier years cannot be made 
except by geographical districts, which remain unchanged. The two 
tables showing the population by districts, with increase and per cent of 
increase every five years from 1850 to 1915 inclusive, appear on pages 250 
and 251. On page 252 are shown the native born (by states) and foreign 
born; on page 253 the foreign-born with country of birth and on page 254 
the ward figures by sex. 

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. 

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

It is now a close rival of St. Louis for fourth in rank.

Note. — In acpordance with chapter 279, Acts of 1903, amended by chapter 291, Acts 
of 1900, all male ri'.sidonts 20 years of age or more have been listed by the police annually on 
May 1. Thi.s date was chaniiod to April 1 by chapter 440, Acts of 1909. In Boston only 
was the voting list prepared from a police canvass in the years 1903 to 1915, inclusive. 
Elsewhere in the state the Assessors' list of polls has been the basis of the voting list, as it 
was in Roston in 1910, the change having been ordered by Chapter 91, General Acts of 1915. 

In 1917, by chapter 29, General Acts, the listing was again entrusted to the Police.

ASSESSED VALUATION AND TAX RATE, 1917. 

Total assessed valuation as of April 1, 1917, $1,467,123,243, or 
$1,304,581,800 real estate and $162,541,443 personal. 

Total tax rate, $17.70 per $1,000 of valuation, or 10 cents less than in 
1916, divided thus: City tax, $13.51; County tax, $1.20; State tax, $2.99, 
the latter increased 51 cents over the 1916 rate. Total tax warrant, $29,- 
318,047.39, or $22,493,503.57 City tax; $1,954,667.47 County tax and 
$4,869,876.35 State tax; Poll tax, $421,426, or $2 each on 210,713 polls. 

The real estate valuation shows a gain of $24,803,500 over the 1916 
total; the personalty a loss of $166,388,236 because of the exemption of 
intangible property from taxation this year for the first time. The re- 
sulting loss in the personalty taxes is offset by the State's distribution of 
the taxes collected on incomes from intangibles as explained below. 

In the 10 years, 1906 to 1916, the assessed valuation increased 25 per 
cent, the population 26 per cent and the tax rate 12 per cent. 

NEW INCOME TAX (STATE) ON INTANGIBLE PROPERTY. 

In accordance with Chap. 269, §§ 2 and 11, General Acts of 1916, 
intangible personal property (except bank stock) ceased to be subject to 
assessment and taxation in 1917 and thereafter. In place of that tax an 
income tax was established, amounting to six per cent per year on in- 
come derived from such intangibles, subject to various specified exemp- 
tions. 

Owing to the exemption from tax of intangible personal property, the 
total valuation of personalty in Boston decreased from $328,929,679 in 
1916 to $162,541,443 in 1917, a loss representing $2,945,072 in taxes. By 
sec. 23 of said Chapter 269 it is provided that on or before Nov. 15 the 
State Treasurer shall pay to each city or town an amount equal to the 
difference between the personal property levy in 1915 and that of 1917 
computed at the 1915 tax rate. If the income taxes collected exceed the 
amount required for such distribution, the excess shall also be distributed, 
in proportion to the State tax imposed on each city or town in 1917. The 
amount of income taxes payable to the City of Boston under said statute 
in 1917 is approximately $3,800,000.

were again entrusted with the duty, in accordance with chap. 29, General 
Acts of 1917.

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 Coxin- 
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, t. 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-half 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 kicompetencj-, 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 ia 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 August 1, 1917, the total number of pensioners was 1,267, divided as 
follows: Laborers, 317; teachers, 290; firemen, 280; police, 221; veterans, 
114; various others, 45. Of the laborers, 279 were from the Public Works 
Dept. and 30 from the Park and Recreation Dept. 

The total of City and County pension payments in the fiscal year 
1916-17 was $604,680 i. e. $23,890 more than in 1915-16), divided as 
follows: Police Dept., $158,821; Fire Dept., $150,714; Public Works 
Dept., $141,976; Dept. of School Committee, $104,233; Suffolk County, 
$17,728; Park and Recreation Dept., $14,274; other departments, $16,934. 

NEW SENATORIAL, REPRESENTATIVE AND COUNCILLOR 

DISTRICTS IN BOSTON.* 

The decennial apportionment, based upon the 1915 census of legal 

voters, established new political districts as stated in Chapter 270, General 

Acts of 1916. Those including one or more of the new wards of Boston 

are as follows:

and 23.— Ninth Suffolk, Wards 19, 21 and 24. The Brighton wards, 
25 and 26, are in the Norfolk and Suffolk District, with Brookline and 
Watertown. Total Senatorial Districts, 10, instead of 9, as formerly. 

Representative Districts. 
Each ward of Boston, from Ward 1 to Ward 18 inclusive, constitutes 
a Suffolk district numbered the same as the waxd. District 19 includes 
Wards 19 and 20; District 22, Wards 22 and 23; District 24, Wards 21 
and 24. Districts 25 and 26 are Wards 25 and 26. Districts 20, 21, 23 
and 27 are in Chelsea, Winthrop and Revere. The Boston districts have 
two representatives each, except as follows: the 5th, 6th, 7th, 19th, 22nd 
and 24th three representatives each; the 25th and 26th one each. The 
average ratio for the 165 Representative districts of the State is 4,702 
legal voters and 22,383 population to each. Of the 54 Suffolk County 
representatives, Boston has 50. 

Councillor Districts. 
The Second, Third and Fourth Councillor Districts of the State are 
constituted as follows from the Suffolk Senatorial Districts: Second, 
8th and 9th Suffolk, with the Norfolk and Suffolk District and two dis- 
tricts outside.— Third, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th and 7th Suffolk.— Fourth,

ruary 1, 1918, approved by Mayor Aug. 22 after a pubhc hearing.

Jan. 1 to July 1, 1917, the number of deaths reported to the department 
was 6,975, or 133 more than in the same period in 1916. Part of this 
increase was due to the excess of nonresident deaths, i. e., 69, over those 
of the 1916 half-year. 

Police Department (See page 133.) — The PoUce Commissioner issued, 
in August, General Orders Nos. 1180 and 1181, stating that policemen

and their salaries in the City's service would be made up by the City. 
On August 30 the Corporation Counsel stated to the City Auditor the 
legal opinion that the above-mentioned Act (chap. 254) referred only to 
volunteers, thus excluding drafted men.

the position formerly filled by Capt. James F. Driscoll, deceased; 
Lieut. John J. Rooney promoted to rank of captain and assigned to 
Division 12.
