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 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 1918 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 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 estabhshing 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,

ORIGIN AND GROWTH OF BOSTON. 7 

when ^' Mount Woollaston" was set off as Braintree, 
Boston exercised jurisdiction over a territory of at least 
40,000 acres. Within its present limits there are 30,598 
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 public hospital." This 
tract was sold by the City April 6, 1833, for $4,200. 

Muddy River was set off as the Town of Brookline 
on November *13, 1705, and Rumney Marsh was set 
off as the Town of Chelsea January *8, 1739. 

The principal annexations of territory included within 
the present limits of the City of Boston have been made 
as follows: 

(1) Noddle's Island, by order of Court of Assistants, March 
*9, 1636-37. (2) South Boston set off from Dorchester March 
6, 1804, by St. 1803, c. 111. (3) Washington Village set off 
from Dorchester May 21, 1855, by St. 1855, c. 468. (4) Rox- 
bury January 6, 1868, by St. 1867, c. 359, accepted September 

9, 1867. Roxbury received its name by order of the Court of 
Assistants October * 8, 1630. It was incorporated a City March 
12, 1846, by St. 1846, c. 95, accepted March 25, 1846. (5) Dor- 
chester January 3, 1870, by St. 1869, c. 349, accepted June 22, 
1869. It received its name September *7, 1630, by order of 
the Court of Assistants. (6) Brighton January 5, 1874, by St. 
1873, c. 303, accepted October 7, 1873. Set off from Cambridge 
as the Town of Brighton February 24, 1807, by St. 1806, c. 65. 
(7) Charlestown January 5, '1874, by St. 1873, c. 286, accepted 
October 7, 1873. Settled July *4, 1629. It was incorporated 
a City February 22, 1847, by St. 1847, c. 29, accepted March 

10, 1847. (8) West Roxbury January 5, 1874, by St. 1873, c. 
314, accepted October 7, 1873. It was set off from Roxbury 
and incorporated a Town May 24, 1851, by St. 1851, c. 250. 
(9) Hyde Park January 1, 1912, by St. 1911, c. 469, and 583, 
accepted November 7, 1911. Incorporated a Town April 22, 
1868.

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 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.

[With footnotes as to Amendments in 1910, 1914 and 1918.] 



The Mayor and City Council. 

Section 1. The terms of office of the mayor and the members of both 
branches of the present eity council of the city of Boston and of the 
street commissioner whose term would expire on the first Monday of 
January, nineteen hundred and ten, are hereby extended to ten o'clock 
A.M. on the first Monday of February, nineteen hundred and ten, and 
at that time the said city council and both branches thereof and the 
positions of city messenger, clerk of the common council, clerk of com- 
mittees, assistant clerk of committees, and their subordinates shall be 
abolished. The officials whose terms of office are hereby extended shall, 
for the extended term, receive a compensation equal to one-twelfth of the 
annual salaries now paid to them respectively. The mayor and city 
council elected in accordance with the provisions of this act, and their 
successors, shall thereafter have all the powers and privileges conferred, 
and be subject to all the duties and obligations imposed by law upon 
the city coimcil 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 coimcil unless previously withdrawn 
by the mayor. Nothing herein shall prevent the mayor from again 

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

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

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

Sect. 3. All appropriations, other than for school purposes, to be 
met from taxes, revenue, or any source other than loans shall originate 
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 coimty officials, when requested by the 
maj'or, to submit forthwith in such detail as he may require estimates 
for the next fiscal year of the expenditm-es of the department or office 
under their charge, which estimates shall be transmitted to the city council. 

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

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



AMENDED CITY CHARTER. 21 

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

Sect. 5. Except as otherwise provided in this act, the organization, 
powers, and duties of the executive departments of the city shall remain

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

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

Sect. 7. The city coimcil at any time may request from the mayor 
specific information on any municipal matter within its jiu-isdiction, 
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 shaU personally, or 
through a head of a department or a member of a board, attend such 
meeting and publicly answer all such questions. The person so attend- 
ing shall not be obliged to answer questions relating to any other matter. 
The mayor at any time may attend and address the city council in person 
or through the head of a department, or a member of a board, upon such 
subject as he may desire. 

Sect. 8. Neither the city council, nor any member or committee, 
officer, or employee thereof shall, except as otherwise provided in this 
act, directly or indirectly on behalf of the city or of the county of Suf- 
folk take part in the employment of labor, the making of contracts, 
the purchase of materials, supplies or real estate; nor in the construc- 
tion, alteration, or repair of any public works, buildings, or other prop- 
erty; nor in the care, custody, and management of the same; nor in the 



22 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

conduct of the executive or administrative business of the city or county; 
nor in the appointment or removal of any municipal or county employee; 
nor in the expenditm:e of public money except such as may be necessary

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

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 covmcil, 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 behaK 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

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 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 $30,275.00 of this appropriation was 
used in 1917 for the purchase of books and periodicals. The 37 Library 
trust funds in the custody of the City Treasurer amounted to $541,728 on 
February 1, 1918, 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 
pubHshed. 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 Mbraries 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, 1918, in the Central Library, branch Hbraries and 
reading-rooms, about 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 Ubrary 
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 seventy-nine public and parochial schools, thirty-nine institutions and 
sixty fire-company houses. 

Cards allowing the use of four books for two weeks are issued to all 
residents of Boston with no further attendant 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 formalit5^ Special cards for more extended privileges are issued 
to clergymen officiating in the City, and to teachers giving instruction in 
Boston institutions of learning; a special card is also issued in certain 
cases by the Trustees. On February 1, 1918, there were 101,891 card- 
holders having the right to draw books for home use. The total number

MARKET DEPARTMENT. 

OflSce 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 J. McGourthy, Swpemitendent of Markets. Salary, $3,000. Term 
ends in 1922. 

Faneuil HaU 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 until an ordinance of September 9, 1852, estabhshed 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 estabhshed by the City Council. The market pohce are appointed 
by the Pohce 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 "Pubhc 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, were succeeded in 1864 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 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, 
opened in 1878, which gives free lodging to homeless men who are out of 
employment, but exacts work in its woody ard for meals furnished; and 
the Temporary Home on Chardon street for destitute women and children, 
opened in 1870. In the year ending January 31, 1918, the number of 
cases of aid given was 36,8.56, including 4,075 families aided in their own 
homes by money, provisions, etc., of which 1,420 were in the class pro- 
vided for by Chapter 763, Acts of 1913, i. e., mothers with dependent 
children under fourteen years of age. Payments to this class amounted to 
$40S,033, about 40 per cent of which was reimbursed by the State and by 
other cities for their proportional part. The total amount of the seventeen 
permanent charity funds in the custody of the Overseers on February 1, 
19 IS, was $893,398.

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 
Commissioners is a salaried oflBcial and is required to devote his entire

Since the City's park development began, in 1877, the total expenditure, 
to the close of 1917, for parks, parkways and playgrounds (exclusive of 
the annual maintenance appropriation) is $22,065,556, or $9,621,111 
for the land and $12,444,445 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 



78 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

the title. AU the land in these tracts not required for driveways and walks, 
a quarry reservation and traflBc road is used, under the trusts created by 
the wills of Benjamin Bussey and James Arnold, for Harvard's extensive 
collection of specimens of such trees and shrubs as will live in this climate. 
The City maintains the roads and walks, also attends to pohcing the 
grounds. The Arboretum is open to visitors dailj^ from 7 A. M. until 
sunset. 

The new Franklin Park Zoological Garden on the northern side of the 
park, begun in 1911, now occupies about eighty acres. Up to February 1, 
191S, the amount expended for construction, etc., was $329, 4S5. 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 " Greeting" 
or main entrance and concourse leading from Blue Hill avenue, with 
massive stone gateway, ornamental fence, etc., is nearing completion. 
The new Marine Park Aquarium, costing $144,530 for construction, etc., 
was opened to the public on November 28, 1912. The entire outlay for 
both was 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 pm-chase 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, 1918, the principal of the fund in 
the custody of the City Treasurer amounted to $5,206,260. In the fiscal 
year, 1917-18, the income from the fund was $197,379, i. e., nearly four 
per cent.

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, 191S, the total of loans issued for 
this purpose was $860,000 and the total expenditure $721,952. The work 
completed to 1918, including the old salt-water fireboat line, makes 8.03 
miles of pipe with 209 hydrants ready for use and supplied by domestic 
high service at Tremont street, near West, from a 16-inch gated connection. 



Sewer and Sanitary Division.

Edw.vrd F. Mxjrphy, Division Engineer. Salary, $5,000. 
Thomas F. Bowes, Engineer in charge of Sewer Service. Salary, $3,500.

William P. Willard, Engineer of Special Work, Sewer Service. Salary, 

$2,500. 
Joseph J. Norton, Supervisor of Sanitary, Street Cleaning and Oiling 
Service. Salary, $3,500. 



The Commissioner of Public Works who took charge of the department 
in April, 1918, merged the Sewer Service, Sanitary Service and Street 
Cleaning and Oiling Service, designating these three former branches of 
the Highway Division as the Sewer and Sanitary Division. 

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 sewer con- 



PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT. 93 

nections, and the investigation of complaints as to defective drainage; of 
the cleaning and oiling of streets, also the removal of house offal and refuse 
in the various districts of the city. 

The total length of common and intercepting sewers on February 1, 1918, 
was 955.27 miles, 14.36 miles having been constructed in 1917, and the 
gross City debt for all sewer construction up to said date was $21,005,580. 

Assessments upon the estates benefited by new sewers are not levied by 
the Public Works Department but by the Board of Street Commissioners 
(see Street Laying-Out Department), who also award damages to real estate 
owners having approved claims for such. The assessment upon an estate 
for a new sewer is limited to S4.00 per linear foot and it is a lien upon the 
property until paid, the law allowing payment in annual instalments of 10 
per cent of total assessment with interest. 

In 1889 the State Board of Health informed the Legislature as to the 
urgent necessity of having two main systems of sewage disposal for the 
cities and towns of the Metropolitan District, one for those north of the 
Charles River, the other for those south. 

By chapter 439 of the Acts of that year, the plans of the said Board wei'e 
adopted and, under State control and financing, the Metropolitan Sewerage 
Commission of three members undertook the construction of the North 
Metropolitan and South Metropolitan systems of trunk and intercepting 
sewers, the former to discharge into the sea at Deer Island and the latter at 
Moon Island. The City of Boston had already constructed, at a cost of 
S4,250,000, pumping works and a trunk sewer from Huntington avenue 
and Gainsborough street to Moon Island, hence the South system was 
completed by building from Huntington avenue through Brighton and 
Newton to Waltham, 8| miles and the whole was put into operation in 
the spring of 1892, the State paying the City for pumping and discharging 
the sewage received from the territory west of Huntington avenue. The 
North Metropolitan system, with four pumping-plants and 41 miles of 
sewers, varying from a 9-foot brick sewer in East Boston to a 10-inch 
vitrified pipe at opposite ends, went into operation in 1896, costing 
§5,116,696. A third system, the Neponset Valley, with a total length of 11 .3 
miles, was completed in 1898. It is an intercepting sewer, receiving the 
sewage from the local sewers of Hyde Park and parts of West Roxbury and 
Dorchester, also Milton and Dedham. In 1906 the High-level sewer was 
completed and into its 17 miles of tunnel extending from Parker Hill, 
Roxbury, through Jamaica Plain, West Roxbury, Hyde Park and Quincy 
to outlets off Nut Island, nearly all the sewage of the South District was 
diverted. Later, this sewer was extended to Brighton and Brookline. 
On January 1, 1917, there were 63.9 miles of Metropolitan sewer in the 
North District, of which 10.4 miles were in Boston, and 47.6 miles in the 
South District, 23.9 miles being in Boston. Tributary to the two Metro- 
politan systems there were 1,403 miles of local sewers in the 27 cities and 
towns belonging. 

In the eleven Sanitary Districts of the City the refuse collected in the 
year 1916 amounted to 405,132 tons (of 2,000 lbs.), of which 324,313 tons 



94 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

were ashes, 70,075 tons garbage and 10,744 tons waste and rubbish (mostly 
paper). Contractors collected 149,520 tons and City employees, aided by 
hired teaming, collected 255,612 tons. 

REMOVAL OF STORE REFUSE. 

As provided by Chapters 1 and 10 of the Ordinances of 1911, the removal 
of refuse from shops, stores and warehouses, involving much extra labor, 
is attended to by the Sanitary Service and charged for at seven cents a barrel 
or bundle (not larger than a floiir barrel). No removals are made except 
on delivery of tickets obtainable at 504 City Hall Annex, or at the office 
of the Superintendent of Markets, Faneuil Hall Market. 

Water Division. 
Main Office, 706 City Hall Annex. 
Frank A. McInnes, Division Engineer. Salary, $5,000. 
Christopher J. Carven, Engineer in Charge. Salary, $3,500. 
Robert W. Wilson, Superintendent, Income Branch. Salary, $3,000. 
George H. Finneran, General Foreman. Salary, $2,800. 

In April, 1918, by order of the incoming Public Works Commissioner, 
that branch of the Highway Division called the Water Service was sepa- 
rated therefrom and became the Water Division. 

Under the control of the Division Engineer of this division are 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. 

The total length of supply and distributing water mains on February 1, 
1918, was 870.62 miles; number of water meters in use, 62,631 (on Janu- 
ary 1), or 2,132 more than in 1917 at same date, making the service about 
60 per cent metered; number of public fire hydrants, 9,619; number of 
public drinking fountains, 155, of which 87 are fitted with hygienic bubble 
fixtures and 68 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 Desniond 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 municipaUties thus to be 



REGISTRY DEPARTMENT. 95 

supplied. A State commission, the Metropolitan Water Board, in accord- 
ance with said act, took possession, in 1898, of all that part of the Boston 
water system lying westward of Chestnut Hill Reservoir, also the pumping 
station there, with adjacent lands. The sum paid to the City was 
$12,531,000. Payments to the State by the City for its supply of water 
have been regularly made since 1898. Total quantity of water in the ten 
storage reservoirs of the Metropolitan system on January 1, 1917, 68,685,- 
300,000 gallons, of which 80 per cent was in the Wachusett Reservoir in 
Clinton, 32 miles west of Boston, an artificial lake 4,135 acres in surface 
area and added to the system in 1905. There are also twelve distribution 
reservoirs with capacity of 2,399,230,000 gallons, five pumping-stations 
being connected with these. In the existing Metropolitan Water District 
are nine cities, besides Boston, and nine towns. Boston took 75.6 per cent 
of the entire water supply of the District in 1916. 

The total number of water services in use in Boston on January 1, 
1917, was, 104,615, and the daily average amount of water used in 1917 was 
82,100,000 gallons, or 106 gallons per capita. This daily average is 
1,742,000 gallons more than that reported for 1916.

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 aU 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

He was authorized to supervise and inspect both underground and 
overhead wires, cables and conductors; to regulate the direction of such 
wires, cables and conductors, and see that they were sufficiently insulated; 
to secure the removal of dead or abandoned wires, and the protection 
of all buildings by proper safety devices; to inspect all wires carrying 
electric Ught, heating or power current within buildings, and to see that 
all wires, posts, machinery and appUances are kept in good order and 
condition. 

Chapter 249 of the Acts of 1898 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 mUes 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 year 
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 regulations relating to the insulation of overhead and underground 
wires, cables and conductors and appUances as were reasonably necessary 
for the purposes 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 failing to notify the Commissioner of the instaUing of wiring or appa- 
ratus for electric Mght, 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 structures 
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 years 
prior thereto were extended from 1917 to 1921, inclusive.

apphcation has been refused may appeal therefrom within ninety days, 
and a person who has been ordered by the Commissioner to incur any 
expense may, within ten days after receiving such order, appeal to the 
Board of Appeal by giving notice in writing to the Commissioner. All 
cases of appeal are referred to this Board, which may, after a hearing, 
direct the Commissioner to issue his permit under such conditions, if any,

cases which appear to them not to have been contemplated thereby, or 
in cases where manifest injustice is done, but such decisions must be 
unanimous and not in conflict with the spirit of any provision of the 
statute.

395 and 451 of the Acts of 1897, the control of the institutions was divided; 
the Penal Institutions Commissioner to have the care of the Penal Insti-

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

The Frankhn Fund is the proceeds of a bequest of one thousand pounds 
to "the Inhabitants of the Town of Boston in Massachusetts" made by 
Benjamin Franklin, in a codicil to his wiU dated June 23, 1789. The 

* The Managers serve without compensation.

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. Frankhn, who died April 17, 1793, 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 (Ut of the fund) was paid to the City Treasurer, for "the 
purchase of land and the erection thereon of the Franklin Trades School 
and for the equipment of the same." Owing to a series of compUcations 
the money remained in the custody of the Treasurer. Mayor CoUins, 
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 pubhc chari- 
table 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 
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 fimd 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 
Frankhn Union BuUding 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

income (about $22,500 yearly) from the above mentioned Franklin Fund 
(t. e., the Andrew Carnegie Donation), which amounted to $460,478 on 
January 31, 1918. 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 hbrarj% and a large haU with a seating capacity of 1,000 for

The Board of Pohce for the City of Boston was estabhshed 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 PoHce Commissioner. 

The powers of the Board of PoHce, except those relating to the grant- 
ing of intelligence office, billiard and pool, skating rink, picnic grove, 
bowhng alley, common victualers' and Uquor Ucenses, 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, was reappointed in 1911, and again in 1916. 
The City is divided into nineteen PoMce 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 poUce 
force, and they receive pay in accordance with their rank in the force. 
The police steamer "Guardian" and the gasolene boats "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 Usting of resident men, 20 years of 
age or over, and verifying the names 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, 1917, the police force numbered 1,669 men, including 
26 captains, 25 inspectors, 40 lieutenants, 107 sergeants, 1,331 patrolmen 
and 136 reservemen. There were 19 men in the signal service, whose 
director has charge of 504 signal boxes. In the calendar year 1917 the 
number of persons arrested was 107,980, of which 67.48 per cent were for

drunkeimess and 43.79 per cent were not residents of Boston. Foreign- 
born persons arrested, 45,214; women and girls, all ages, 9,400; boys under 
15 years of age, 2,298. In year ending November 30, 1917, persons 
imprisoned, 8,005; persons fined, 14,145, the fines amomiting to $124,252; 
stolen property recovered, $462,241; licenses granted, 21,836 (including 
8,787 for dogs and 9,089 for vehicles and drivers), for which $41,700 was 
received; prosecutions for violation of automobile laws, 6,240.

PHYSICAIi 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 faciUties in the 
buildings, yards and playgroimds 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 1917-18 was 
$62,732. Besides this, a special appropriation of $29,524 was provided 
for playgroimd 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 encovu-ages the establishing of Independent Industrial Schools, 
allowing financial aid for their maintenance proportionate to the amount 
raised by local taxation and expended for aU pubhc schools. Under this 
arrangement, the School Committee is reimbursed by the State to the 
extent of one haK the net maintenance cost of such industrial 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 
imder 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 1917-18 the amount received from the State 
for this purpose was $74,819.

DEPARTMENT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 147 

The term is forty days, morning sessions only, and the registration of pupils 
in 1917 was 5,002, or 4,705 in the elementary schools and 297 in the high 
school. Of the elementary school pupils 71.16 per cent won promotion 
in 1917. 

trSE 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 commimity, 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 
1917-18 amounted to $35,537. This plan was started by estabhshing 
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, which engage the services of 86 
•paid leaders and other workers, also many volunteer assistants. 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. Widening interest in the centers has extended their activities 
to one or more afternoons each week. Persons attending the various meet- 
ings and entertainments in nine months ending June 30, 1917, numbered 
301,257. 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 121 schoolhouses are used by the Election Department 
as polhng places. 

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 pubhc 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 retire- 
ment, but in no case is it less than $312 nor more than $600 annually. If 
the period of service is less than thirty years, the pension is proportionally 
less. The School Committee were 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. This allowance was increased by Chap . 



148 



MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



304, Special Acts of 1915, to seven cents on each $1,000. The Perma- 
nent School Pension Fund amounted to $288,900, February 1, 1918, and 
313 retired teachers were receiving pensions therefrom. 

The Boston Teachers' Retirement Fund Association, started in 1900, 
is paying $120 per year to 284 annuitants, and the total amount of its fund 
on February 1, 1918, was $532,860. At that date 2,884 teachers were each 
contributing $18 per year to this fund.

Regulation of the Height of Buildings. 

[Stat. 1904, Chap. 333; Stat. 1905, Chap. 383; Stat. 1907, Chap. 416; 

Stat. 1912, Chap. 582; Stat. 1914, Chap. 786; Stat. 1915, Chap. 

333 (Special).] 
By Stat. 1904, Chap. 333, the Legislature provided that the City of 
Boston should be divided into two districts, designated as Districts A and 
B, and that if not repugnant to some other statute, buildings could be 
erected in District A to a height of 125 feet, but that' except as to certain 
projections above the roof, no buildings could be erected in District B to a 
height greater than 80 feet. A commission consisting of Nathan Matthews, 
Joseph A. Conry, and Henry Parkman was appointed by Mayor Collins, 
June 7, 1904, to determine the limits of these districts, and it made a pre- 
liminary order on July 5, 1904, which was revised December 3, 1904. Under 
Stat. 1905, Chap. 383, the Legislature made certain minor changes in the 
law, and also authorized the erection of buildings to a height not exceeding 
100 feet in such parts of District B, and on such conditions, as a commission 
should determine. The same commission was reappointed under this act 
and made a preliminary order July 21, 1905, which was revised November 
20, 1905. [See Document 133, 1905.1 

The Commission's order, filed in the Registry of Deeds in 1904, was to 
continue in force until 1919, but in 1915 conditions called for an extension 
of District A boundaries and this was provided for by chapter 333, Special 



174 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

Acts of 1915. A new commission was thereby constituted, consisting 
of the Chairman of the City Planning Board, the Fire Commissioner and 
the Building Commissioner, who filed their order in the Registry of Deeds 
on November 2, 1916, to remain in force for ten years, and superseding 
the order of 1904 as to the boundaries of Districts A and B. [See Docu- 
ment 114, 1916. J

Wherever a boundary Une 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 aU 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 aU streets or portions of streets upon which buildings may be erected 
on one side only, the bmldings may be erected to a height of 100 feet. No 
bmlding 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 by Beacon, Joy, Myrtle 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 Arts High School 
any building or buildings thereon may be erected to a height of 100 feet. 

No building can be erected on a parkway, boulevard or pubhc way 
on which a building line has been estabhshed 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. 

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. 

No limitation of the height of buildings appKes to churches, steeples, 
towers, domes, cupolas, belfries or statuary not used' for purposes of 
habitation, nor to chimneys, gas holders, coal or grain elevators, open 
balustrades, skyUghts, 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 aggrieved 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 untU 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 boimdaries 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 imtil 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 w^ards, 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 Council, but neither of the plans submitted was adopted. 

Acting vmder the authority of Chapter 630, Acts of 1914,* the City 
Council redivided the territory of the City, establishing the boundaries

THE NEW AND THE OLD WARDS 
COMPARED. 

On June 7, 1915, the City Council passed an order dividing the new 
wards, estabhshed 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 boundary of each new 
ward and precinct, see preceding pages, viz., 179 lo 233. The comparison 
between the number of precincts and of voters in the new wards and the 
old is shown in the following table :

STATISTICS 

OF 

Population and Area. 



250 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



Enumerated Population of Boston, 

APRIL 1, 1915, 
745,439. 

ESTIMATED POPULATION, JULY 1, 1918, 
787,097.* 



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 estabUshed 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 \mchanged. 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 252 
and 253. On page 254 are shown, by wards, the native-born (by states) 
and the foreign-born; on page 255 the foreign-born with country of birth 
and on page 256 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. 



* Net increase of population, 1,100+ per month from Augxist 1, 1918, based upon actual 
rate from U. S. Census of April 15, 1910, to State Census of April 1, 1915.

Note. — The law pertaining to the registration of minors of school age annually on 
April 1 (i. e., Chapter 102, General Acts of 1916), was substituted for that concerning the 
annual school census in September (i. e.. Chapter 43, Revised Laws, as amended by Chapter 
443, Acts of 1914). 

* Of this number, 5,586 persons are employed in conformance with employment certif- 
icates issued by the School Committee, being compelled by law (Chapter 805, Acts of 
1913) to attend Continuation School at least four hours (daytime) each school week, 
unless otherwise receiving instruction approved by the said Committee.

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 
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 Boston in 1916, 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.

ADDITIONS AND COEEECTIONS. 



ASSESSED VALUATION AND TAX RATE, 1918. 

Total assessed valuation as of April 1, 1918, $1,498,216,298, or 
$1,313,547,600 real estate and $184,668,698 personal. 

Total tax rate, $21.20 per $1,000 of valuation, or $3.50 more than in 
1917, divided thus: City tax, $16.85 ($4.48 of this for schools); County 
tax, $1.36; State tax, $2.99. Total tax warrant, $35,317,030.33, or 
$28,176,252.21 City tax; $2,231,308.29 County tax and $4,909,469.83 
State tax and Metropolitan assessments; Poll tax, $444,532, or $2 each on 
222,266 polls. 

The real estate valuation shows a gain of $8,926,800 over the 1917 
total; the personalty a gain of $22,123,355. The decrease in personalty 
valuation and tax since 1916 (as explained below) is offset by the State's 
distribution of the taxes collected on incomes from intangible property. 

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 6 per cent per year on income 
derived from such intangibles, subject to various specified exemptions. 

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 was provided that on or before Nov. 15 the 
State Treasurer should 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 should exceed 
the amount required for such distribution, the excess was to be distributed 
in proportion to the State tax imposed on each city or town. The amount 
of income taxes payable to the City of Boston under said statute in 1918 is 
$4,127,874, or $423,019 more than in 1917. 

TAX LIMIT RAISED FOR YEAR 19l8. 

In response to the petition of the Mayor, the tax limit of $6.52 
on each $1,000 of valuation for general City purposes was raised 
to $9.52 by authority of Chap. 120, Special Acts of 1918, applying only

tional amount thus made available for appropriations was $4,632,977. 

APPROPRIATIONS, ETC., FOR FINANCIAL YEAR, 1918-19. 

For maintenance of all departments, except School Departments, 
$19,189,150, or $1,384,989 more than in 1917; School Departments 
(appropriated by School Committee), $6,863,000 (regular) and $711,931 
(special); City and County Debt Requirements, $6,049,899; special

Tax, $3,502,950; Metropohtan Park Assessments, $784,885; Metropoli-. 
tan Sewer Assessments, $350,249; other State assessments, $303,739. 
Total appropriations from Tax Levy and General Income, $35,456,718; 
State Levies, $4,941,823. Grand Total, $40,398,541, or $4,320,104 more 
than in 1917-18. 

The notable items of increase over the appropriations for 1917-18 are: 
Reconstructing and Repairing Streets, Etc., $1,360,417; City Debt 
Requirements, $691,812; Bridge and Ferry Repairs, $365,500; County of

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 oflBcers, 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-j&ve years and is physically 
incapacitated shaU, 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 



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 fmrther 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 August 1, 1918, the total number of pensioners was 1,319 (52 more 
than in 1917), divided as follows: Laborers, 324; teachers, 306; firemen, 
312; police, 231; veterans, 115; various others, 31. Of the laborers, 283 
were from the Pubhc Works Dept. and 31 from the Park and Recreation
