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 list of Alder- 
men and Councilmen since 1822 was dropped. 

By order of the City Council, April 7, 1919, and under 
the direction of the Committee on Rules, The Municipal 
Register for 1919 has been compiled and edited by the 
Statistics Department.

OEiaiN AND (lEOWTH 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 Biver, Waterton." Thus Shawmut 
of the Indians was named Boston, probably out of grati- 
tude to the Merchants of Boston in Lincolnshire, who 
had subscribed generously to the stock of the Company. 

In the course of the summer. Governor Winthrop 
with the patent chose Boston as his abiding place. 
The first "Court" held in Boston was a "General Court" 
on October *19, "for establishing of the government." 
On October *3, 1632, Boston was formally declared 
to be "the fittest place for publique meetings of any 
place in the Bay." 

Boston was the first town in Massachusetts to become 
a city. It was incorporated February 23, 1822, by 
St. 1821, c. 110, adopted March 4, 1822. This act was 
revised by St. 1854, c. 448, commonly called the City 
Charter, adopted November 13, 1854. 

The neck of land called Boston, still called Boston 
Proper, contained perhaps 700 acres of land, judging 
from the 783 acres shown by the official survey of 1794. 
In the interval 1630-37, Boston acquired jurisdiction 
over most of the territory now included in Chelsea, 
Winthrop, Revere, East Boston, Brookline, Quincy, 
Braintree, Randolph and Holbrook, besides certain 
islands in the harbor. From 1637 till May 13, 1640,

ORIGIN AND GROWTH OF BOSTON. 7 

when ''Mount WooUaston" was set off as Braintree, 
Boston exercised jurisdiction over a territory of at least 
40,000 acres. Within its present hmits 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 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,

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 E,. 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, ^. e. " God be 
with us as He was with our fathers." 

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 
branches of the present city council of the city of Boston and of the 
street commissioner whose term would expire on the first Monday of 
January, nineteen hundred and ten, are hereby extended to ten o'clock 
A.M. on the first Monday of February, nineteen hundred and ten, and 
at that time the said city council and both branches thereof and the 
positions of city messenger, clerk of the common council, clerk of com- 
mittees, assistant clerk of committees, and their subordinates shall be 
abolished. The officials whose terms of office are hereby extended shall, 
for the extended term, receive a compensation equal to one-twelfth of the 
annual salaries now paid to them respectively. The mayor and city 
council elected in accordance with the provisions of this act, and their 
successors, shall thereafter have all the powers and privileges conferred, 
and be subject to all the duties and obligations imposed by law upon 
the city council or the board of aldermen, acting as such or as county 
commissioners or in any capacity, except as herein otherwise provided. 
Wherever in this act the phrase "mayor and city council" appears, it 
shall be understood as meaning the mayor and city council acting on and 
after the first Monday of February, nineteen hundred and ten, under the 
provisions of this and the three following sections. The city council may, 
subject to the approval of the mayor, from time to time establish such 
offices, other than that of city clerk, as it may deem necessary for the 
conduct of its affairs and at such salaries as it may determine, and abolish 
such offices or alter such salaries; and without such approval may fill 
the offices thus established and remove the incumbents at pleasure. 

Sect. 2. The mayor from time to time may make to the city council 
in the form of an ordinance or loan order filed with the city clerk such 
recommendations other than for school pm-poses as he may deem to be for 
the welfare of the city. The city councU 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 withia said sixty days it shall 
be in force as if adopted by the city council unless previously withdrawn 
by the mayor. Nothing herein shall prevent the mayor from again 

Note. — The Amended City Charter is contained in Chap. 4S6, 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 coimcil 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

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

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 anj'^ item thereto, nor shall it originate a budget. It 
shall be the duty of the city and county officials, when requested by the 
mayor, to submit forthwith in such detail as he may require estimates 
for the next fiscal year of the expenditures of the department or office 
under their charge, which estimates shall be transmitted to the city council. 

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

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



AMENDED CITY CHARTER. 21

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

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

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

Sect. 8. Neither the city council, nor any member or committee, 
ofiicer, 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-

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



22 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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

a contract with the city or with the county of Suffolk, or to receive any 
commission, discoimt, 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

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

A violation of any provision of this section shall render the contract 
in respect to which such violation occurs voidable at the option of the

The Trustees of the Public Library of the City of Boston, who are five 
in number, are appointed by the Mayor, one each year, for a term of five 
years. They were incorporated by an act of the General Court passed 
April 4, 1878, and 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. This amount was 
changed to $10,000,000 by Chap. 116, Special Acts of 1919. The first Trus- 
tees 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 Coxmcil. About $35,062 of this appropriation was 
used in 1918 for the purchase of books and periodicals. The 40 Library- 
trust funds in the custody of the City Treasurer amounted to $572,732 on 
February 1, 1919, 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 fist 
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.

were, on February 1, 1919, in the Central Library, branch Hbraries and 
reading-rooms, about 540 employees. 

Between the Central Library and these thirty stations, by library 
wagons, there is a daily exchange of books and cards, whereby persons 
living in outlying districts can draw books from the Central Library without 
the necessity of coming in person. 

The delivery or deposit of books is also undertaken in one hundred 
and eighty-five public and parochial schools, thirty-two institutions and 
fifty-nine fire-company houses. 

Cards allowing the use of four books for two weeks are issued to aU 
residents of Boston with no fiu^;her 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 pupUs attending Boston schools who 
fm-nish guaranties. For reading and reference the Library is open to all 
without formality. Special cards for more extended privileges are issued 
to clergymen officiating in the City, and to teachers giving instruction in 
Boston institutions of learning; a special card is also issued in certain 
cases by the Trustees. On February 1, 1919, there were 94,677 card- 
holders having the right to draw books for home use. The total number 
of volumes was 1,173,695, and of different newspapers and periodicals 
currently received at the Central Library and branches about 2,200. 
Books issued in 1918, for home use and for use through schools and insti- 
tutions, numbered 2,028,053. Of reference use, on account of the freedom 
with which books may be consulted, no adequate statistics are kept.

MARKET DEPARTMENT. 

Office in Rotunda of Faneuil Hall Market. 

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

§§ 60-65; Stat. 1895, Chap. 449, § 26.] 
Patrick J. McGoxjrthy, Superintendent of Markets. Salary, $3,000. Term 

ends in 1922. 
Peter J. Connolly, Clerk and Deputy Superintendent. Salary, $1,700. 

Faneuil Hall Market, proposed in Mayor Quincy's message of July 31, 
1823, and completed in 1826, was under the charge of a Clerk of the 
Market 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 HaU and Quincy Market. 
The Superintendent has charge and control of these two buildings. He 
may assign stands within their hmits; 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 estabUshed by the City Council. The market police 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 "PubUc 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 woodyard for meals furnished; and 
the Temporary Home on Chardon street for destitute women and children, 
opened in 1870. In the year ending January 31, 1919, the number of 
cases of aid given was 37,718, including 15,148 men in Wajrfarers' Lodge, 
3,704 women and 1,622 children in Temporary Home and 17,244, repre- 
senting 4,311 families, aided in their own homes by money, provisions, etc., 
of which 1,692 families were in the class provided for by Chapter 763, Acts 
of 1913, i. e., mothers with dependent children under fourteen years of age. 
Payments to this class amounted to $480,601, of which 33.1 per cent was 
reimbursed, by the State and by other municipalities for their proportional 
part, according to the legal settlement of the mother. The total amount 
of the seventeen permanent charity funds in the custody of the Overseers on 
February 1, 1919, was $893,757.

Since the City's park development began, in 1877, the total expenditure, 
to the close of 1918, for parks, parkways and playgrounds (exclusive of 
the annual maintenance appropriation) is $22,642,485, or $9,654,998 
for the land and $12,987,487 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. 

tlie title. AU 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 wiUs of Benjamin Bussey and James Arnold, for Harvard's extensive 
collection of specimens of such trees and shrubs as wiU Kve in this climate. 
The City maintains the roads and walks, also attends to pohcing 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, begun in 1911, now occupies about eighty acres. Up to February 1, 
1918, 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 latest 
improvement is the "Greeting" or main entrance and concourse leading 
from Blue Hill avenue, with massive stone gateway, ornamental fence, 
etc., completing the original artistic design. The new Marine Park Aqua- 
riimi, 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 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 munici- 
pal and other bonds. On February 1, 1919, the principal of the fimd in 
the custody of the City Treasurer amounted to $5,207,263. In the fiscal 
year 1918-19, the income from the fund was $197,460, 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 business center of 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. The last loan for this purpose was $140,000, 
issued in 1918, and the total expenditure to Feb. 1, 1919, was $820,300. The 
work completed to 1919, including the old salt-water fireboat line, makes 
7.99 miles of pipe with 233 hydrants ready for use and supplied by domestic 
high service at Tremont street, near West, from a 16-inch gated connection.

$2,700. 
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- 
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. 



PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT. 93 

The total length of common and intercepting sewers on February 1, 1919, 
was 961.24 miles, 5.97 miles having been constructed in 1918, and the 
gross City debt outstanding for all sewer construction up to said date was 
$21,267,080. 

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 $4.00 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 were 
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 aheady constructed, at a cost of 
$4,250,000, 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, S3 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, 1918, there were 63.9 miles of Metropolitan sewer in the 
North District, of which 10.4 miles were in Boston, and 49.1 miles in the 
South District, 23.9 miles being in Boston. Tributary to the two Metro- 
politan systems there were 1,423 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 1918 amounted to 380,864 tons (of 2,000 lbs.), of which 316,482 tons 
were ashes, 56,836 tons garbage and 7,546 tons waste and rubbish (mostly

paper). Contractors collected 140,052 tons and City employees, aided 
by hired teaming, collected 240,812 tons. 

REMOVAL OF STOEE EEFUSE. 

As provided by Chapters 1 and 10 of the Ordinances of 1911, the remova' 
of refuse from shops, stores and warehouses, involving much extra labor, 
is attended to by the Sanitary Service and charged for at 11 cents a barrel 
or bundle (not larger than a flour barrel). No removals are made except 
on delivery of tickets obtainable at 504 City HaU Annex, or at the oflSce 
of the Superintendent of Markets, Faneuil Hall Market. 

Water Division. 
Main Office, 606 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 biUs therefor. 

The total length of supply and distributing water mains on February 1, 
1919, was 873.32 miles; number of water meters in use, 63,187 (on Janu- 
ary 1), making the service about 60 per cent metered; number of public 
fire hydrants, 9,669; 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 pubUshed by the City of Boston appeared 
in 1825. The pubUc 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 aU the powers previously exercised by the Boston 
Water Board and the Boston Water Registrar. 

By Chapter 488, Acts of 1895, the State provided for a metropohtan 
water supply, Boston being included among the municipahties thus to be 
supplied. A State commission, the Metropohtan Water Board, in accord- 



REGISTRY DEPARTMENT. 95 

ance with said act, took possession, in 1898, of all that part of the Boston 
water system lying westward of Chestnut HlU 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, 1918, 
66,466,000,000 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, six piunping-stations 
being connected with these. In the existing Metropolitan Water District 
are nine cities, besides Boston, and nine towns. Boston took 74.6 per cent 
of the entire water supply of the District in 1917. 

The total number of water services in use in Boston on January 1, 
1918, was, 105,352, and the daily average amount of water used in 1918 was 
94,657,833 gallons, or 120 gallons per capita.

The Commission had charge of the construction of the Tremont street 
subway, opened September 1, 1897 (costing $4,416,000, including altera- 
tions), of the Charlestown bridge (costing -11,570,198), of the tunnel to 
East Boston, opened December 30, 1904 (costing $3,309,000), and the 
Washington street tunnel. This two-track tunnel, which is used for 
elevated railway trains exclusively, was opened for traffic on November 
30, 1908. It is 1.16 miles long and cost $8,498,700, of which the land 
damages amoimted to $2,850,000. 

The Commission began constructing in September, 1909, under the 
provisions of Chapter 520, Acts of 1908, a tunnel under Beacon Hill from 
the new Cambridge bridge to the Park street station of the Tremont 
street subway, as a connection with the Cambridge Main street subway 
built by the Boston Elevated Railway. This two-track subway for train 
service, called Cambridge Connection (length 2,486 feet), and costing 
$1,465,000, was opened for traffic March 23, 1912. 

By Chapter 741, Acts of 1911, the Commission was further charged 
with the construction of the East Boston Tunnel Extension (about 2,300

square and Cambridge street. This two-track subway for surface cars 
was opened for traffic on March 18, 1916, its cost being $2,450,000. The 
same legislation provided for the Boylston street subway (about 1.9 
miles in length, substituted for the Riverbank subway), and the Dor- 
chester tunnel for train service (length about 2.27 miles), to connect with 
the Cambridge route at Park street station and extend under Winter and 
Summer streets to South Station, thence to Andrew square, Dorchester. 
The Boylston street subway (for surface cars only), extending from Tre- 
mont street subway near Park square to Commonwealth avenue near 
Kenmore street, was opened for traffic October 3, 1914, and the total

The Licensing Board for the City of Boston was established by Chapter

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

The Board also exercises all the powers and performs all the duties 
previously conferred or imposed by law on the Board of Pohce relative 
to the Hcensing of picnic groves, skating rinks, inteUigence offices, bilHard 
tables and bowHng alleys.

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

The Franldin Fund is the proceeds of a bequest of one thousand pounds 
to "the Inhabitants of the Town of Boston in Massachusetts" made by 
Benjamin Franldin, in a codicU 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 Chm-ches 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 ufciUty 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 FrankUn heirs in 1891 prevented the division 
of the fvmd 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 (f«?- 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 Collins, 
in 1902, caused a petition of the City to be filed in the Supreme Court, 
praying for instructions as to the authority of the persons then acting as 
Managers of the fund. The Court rendered an opinion November 25, 
1903 (184 Mass. 373, page 43), to the effect that the three ministers were 
Managers of the fund under Franklin's will, but that the Aldermen did 
not succeed the "Selectmen" as Managers and had no powers with refer- 
ence to it. The Court, under its general power to care for pubUc 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 fund is used. 

On January 31, 1907, the amount of the "accumulated" fund available 
for expenditure by the Managers was $438,741.89, and in that year the 
Franklin Union Building was erected at the corner of Appleton and Ber- 
keley streets. It was opened for the use of the FrankHn 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 
(i. e., the Andrew Carnegie Donation), which amounted to $460,478 on 
January 31, 1919. 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 hbrary, and a large hall with a seating capacity of 1,000 
for lectures, concerts, discussions and similar purposes. The building 
with equipment cost $402,718. The site was purchased in 1906 for 
$100,000. 

The FrankUn Accumulating Fund, which will become available in 1991, 
amounted, on January 31, 1919, to $279,851.

The powers of the Board of Pohce, except those relating to the grant- 
ing of intelUgence office, biUiard and pool, skating rink, picnic grove, 
bowHng alley, common victualers' and hquor Ucenses,' which were trans- 
ferred to the newly created Licensing Board, devolve upon the Police 
Commissioner. 

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 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 hsting 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, 1918, the police force mmibered 1,763 men, including 
26 captains, 26 inspectors, 41 heutenants, 126 sergeants, 1,446 patrolmen, 
and 95 reservemen. There were 19 men in the signal service, whose 
director has charge of 504 signal boxes. In the calendar year 1918 the 
number of persons arrested was 90,380, or 17,600 less than in 1917. Of 
said total, 54,845 (i. e. 60.68 per cent) were for drunkenness; non-residents 
arrested, 38,176, or 42.24 per cent; foreign-born persons, 37,139 (67.6 of 
these for drunkenness); women and girls, all ages, 8,278; boys under 15 
years of age, 2,791. In year ending November 30, 1918, persons imprisoned, 
4,782; persons fined, 12,059, the fines amounting to $106,998; stolen 
property recovered, $578,891; hcenses granted, 22,478 (including 8,488 
for dogs and 8,910 for vehicles and drivers), for which $40,328 was received. 
Prosecutions for violation of automobile laws, 5,108; for larceny and 
robbery, 4,066; assault, etc., 2,305; gambhng, etc., 2,112; violation of 
street traffic regulations, etc., 1,614; burglary, 628. Reports of accidents 
in streets and parks show 143 killed and 3,190 injured. There were 6,290 
sick and injured persons assisted, 447 insane persons taken in charge and 
2,000 lost children restored to their homes. 

Salaries: Captains, $3,000 per annum; inspectors and lieutenants, 
$2,000 per anmmi. On May 30, 1919, salaries below the position of 
lieutenant were increased as follows: Sergeants to $1,800 per year; all 
classes of patrolmen raised $200 per year, making first year's salary $1,100 
and advancing $100 each year until the maximum of $1,600 is reached. 

The reserve force was abolished by Chap. 23, Special Acts of 1919, and 
its 95 members became a part of the regular force.

MEDICAL INSPECTORS AND NURSES. 

Regular medical inspection of the schools was maintained from 1894 to 
1915, under the supervision of the Health Department. Beginning

appointing 41 physicians, since increased to 43.

inspectors in carrying out the latter's directions, and to give such instruc- 
tion to the pupils as will promote their physical welfare. For the 67 ele- 
mentary school districts there are now 41 nurses in the service besides the 
supervising nurse. Salary of supervising nurse, $1,380 first year, with

PHYSICAL TRAINING. 

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

The sum available for this branch of education is four cents on each 
$1,000 of the City's assessed valuation, which in the year 1918-19 was 
$61,664. Besides this, a special appropriation of $29,682 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 



DEPARTMENT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 143 

established in Boston thus far with the approval of the State Board of 
Education. By Chapter 805, Acts of 1913, Continuation Schools, for 
employed children between fourteen and sixteen years of age, were included 
under the same plan of State aid. The 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 1918-19 the amount received from the State 
for this purpose was $86,850.

These supplementary schools, one high and ten elementary, for pupils 
who have been retarded in their studies, were started on June 22, 1914. 
The term is forty days, morning sessions only, and the registration of pupils 
in 1918 was 4,878, or 4,554 in the elementary schools and 324 in the high 
school. Of the elementary school pupils, 83.6 per cent won promotion 
in 1918. 

USE OF SCHOOL PROPERTY FOR SOCIAL AND CIVIC PURPOSES. 

By the provisions of Chapter 195, Acts of 1912, amended by Chapter 
86, Special Acts of 1916, the School Committee may allow the school 



146 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

property under their control to be used by associations 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 Committee may annually appro- 
priate for this purpose a sum equal to two cents on each $1,000 of the 
City's assessed valuation, which in the year 1918-19 amounted to $33,480. 
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 EUot schoolhouse; West End, in the Blackstone and Washington school- 
houses, and the Dorchester Center in the high schoolhouse there. A 
variety of study clubs, lectures, concerts and other entertainments 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, 1918, numbered 
239,618. 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 123 schoolhouses are used by the Election Department 
as polling places. High school buildings were opened for the drilUng of 
various companies of State Guards 43 times during July, 1917, and 10 
times during June, 1918. 

PENSION AND RETIEEMENT 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 eflBcient service. If 
the teacher retired has been employed in the public day schools for a period 
of thirty years or more, ten years of which has been in Boston, the pension 
paid amounts to one-third of the annual salary received at time of 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. 
304, Special Acts of 1915, to seven cents on each $1,000. The Perma- 
ment School Pension Fund amounted to $319,481 on February 1, 1919, 
and 318 retired teachers were receiving pensions therefrom. 



DEPARTMENT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE.

The Boston Teachers' Retirement Fund Association, started in 1900, 
is paying $120 per year to 281 annuitants and smaller sums to three others, 
the total amount of its fund on February 1, 1919, being $574,280. At that 
date 2,913 teachers were each contributing $18 per j^ear to this fund.

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 CoUins, 
June 7, 1904, to determine the hmits 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

and made a preliminary order July 21, 1905, which was revised November 
20, 1905. [See Document 133, 1905.] 

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

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 j^ears, and superseding

street upon which the building stands, said height to be measured from the 
mean grade of the curbs of aU 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

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 appHes to churches, steeples, 
towers, domes, cupolas, belfries or statuary not used for purposes of

balustrades, skyhghts, ventilators, flagstaffs, raUings, 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

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 Hmit 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. 
[See Document 45, 1917.]

publication of the City, with the title, City Record, was re-established in 
that year, the size of page, typography, etc., being similar to the form 
adopted by the Statistics Department, under whose management the 
first City Record was issued during the years, 1898, 1899 and to May 8, 
1900, at which time it was discontinued. Its suspension was ordered by 
Mayor Hart, owing to the insufficiency of the appropriation for the year 
1900. In March of that year, the Legislature had refused to enact a bill 
proposed by Mayor Hart, entitled "An Act relative to the Advertising of 
Legal Notices in the County of Suffolk and City of Boston." This bill 
was introduced with a view to making the City Record self-supporting. 
The cost of publication over and above the receipts was $4,863.92 for the 
year 1898 and $4,349.73 for 1899, the average edition being 979 copies 
in the latter year with 16 pages to each number, as averaged. 

By the Act of 1909, the City Record was placed under the direction of 
the Mayor, the terms for the sale of the paper, i. e. per year's subscription 
and per single copy, to be fixed by the City Council. On July 26, 1909, 
an ordinance was passed in conformity with the said Act, amending Chap. 
37, Revised Ord. of 1908. This fixed the yearly subscription price at $1.00 
and the price per single copy five cents, the rate for advertising space 
to be fixed by the City Auditor. A transfer of $3,000 from the Reserve 
Fund was ordered to cover the expenses for the remainder of the year. 
The fijst issue appeared on August 14 following, pubhcation being con- 
tinued every week since, with some variation in quantity of contents. 

In the fiscal year 1910-11 the revenue of the City Record was $10,271, 
or $3,123 in excess of the expenditures. In every year since, except 
1912-13 (when a small revenue excess was shown) the expenditures have 
exceeded the revenue, the deficit in 1918-19 amounting to $4,654, mostly 
due to increased costs of production charged by the Printing Department, 
whose profits are really an offset to a part of such deficits and may be 
transferred to balance off deficits of other departments. 

In 1919 the advertising rate was increased 20 per cent (i. e. to $1.80 per 
inch) and the paid subscriptions were coming in at about the same rate as 
in 1918, in which year 843 such were received, or 163 more than in 1917. 
The edition varies but slightly, or between 1,000 and 1,300 copies. By 
using its own official publication the City has had the benefit of cheaper 
advertising space, besides diverting to one of its departments about $12,000 
a year that would otherwise be paid to outside publications.

Twenty-Six Wards 

ESTABLISHED IN 1915.

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 untU 1735, when the number was increased to twelve. 
The ward lines then fixed remained substantially unchanged for seventy 
years imtil 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 boimdaries were made in 1838, 1850, 1865, 1875, 1895 and lastly, 
that which was enacted December 28, 1914. In 1865 nine wards were 
added to provide for the annexed districts, in 1875 * and 1876 * the number 
was increased to 25 and in 1912 another annexation, viz.: Hyde Park, 
brought the total to 26. In 1885 an attempt was made by the City Coun- 
cil to make a new division of wards, and an ordinance to that effect was 
prepared by a special committee appointed for the purpose, passed by 
the City Council and approved by the Mayor.^ Certain questions were 
raised, however, in the General Court of 1886, relative to establishing 
State, senatorial and representative districts, and as to whether such dis- 
tricts should be established according to the territorial boundaries of cities 
and towns and their wards as they existed on the first day of May, 1885, 
or whether new ward lines, as in the case of the City of Boston, should 
be followed. On May 21, 1886, the opinion of the Justices of the Supreme 
Judicial Court was asked by the Legislature on this matter, and they 
decided that the district divisions referred to must be made according to 
territorial and other boundaries existing on the first day of May, 1885, and 
that the new ward divisions were Ulegal.^ On accoimt of this opinion 
of the Justices of the Supreme Judicial Court, an act was passed by the 
Legislatiu-e 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 coim- 
cHs of said cities to the contrary notwithstanding. The new division of 
wards was thus set aside and the ward lines established in 1875 remained 
in effect until they were changed in 1895 and established under the pro- 

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

visions of Chapter 417 of the Acts of 1893, According to this act, a city 
may be redivided into wards in every tenth year after 1895, but this is 
not mandatory. In 1905 a new division of the City was attempted by 
the City CouncU, but neither of the plans submitted was adopted. 

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

THE NEW AND THE OLD WARDS 
COMPARED. 

On June 7, 1915, the City Council passed an order dividing the 26 
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 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. 



212 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



Enumerated Population of Boston, 

APRIL 1, 1915, 

745,439. 

Estimated population, July i, 1919, 

800,377.* 



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 estabhshed 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 214 
and 215. On page 216 are shown, by wards, the native-born (by states) 
and the foreign-born; on page 217 the foreign-born with country of birth 
and on page 218 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 August 1, 1918, based upon actual 
rate from U. S. Census of April 15, 1910, to State Census of April 1, 1915.

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.

290 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



ADDITIONS AND COEEECTIONS. 



ASSESSED VALUATION AND TAX RATE, 1919. 

Total assessed valuation as of April 1, 1919, $1,528,153,778, or $1,329,- 
290,100 real estate and $198,863,678 personal. 

Total tax rate, $23.60 per $1,000 of valuation, or $2.40 more than in 
1918, divided thus: City tax, $17.15 ($5.02 of this for schools); County 
tax, $1.42; State tax, $5.03. Total tax warrant, $38,713,803.16 {i. e., 
$3,396,772.83 more than in 1918) or $28,433,875.92 City tax; $2,262,321.78 
County tax and $8,017,605.46 State tax and Metropolitan assessments; 
PoU tax, $452,980, or $2 each on $226,490 polls. 

The heavy increase in the tax for State purposes, or $3,108,135 more 
than in 1918, is chiefly due to the assessment for Boston's share {i. e., 
71.9 per cent) of the Elevated Railway Company's deficit, as ordered by 
Special Acts of 1918, Chap. 159, pi:oviding for the public operation of 
said transportation system. 

The real estate valuation shows a gain of $15,736,500 over the 1918 
total; the personalty a gain of $14,285,474. 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 estabUshed, 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 paid to the City of Boston under said statute in 1918 was 
$4,085,175, or $380,320 more than in 1917. In 1919 the amount decreased 
to $2,864,908, largely due to the deduction of Boston's share of the new 
State Educational Fund. 



ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS. 291 

TAX LIMIT RAISED FOR YEAR 1919. 
As in 1918, 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. 172, Special Acts 
of 1919, applying only to the present financial year. Of this increase, 
$2.34 was for various municipal purposes and $0.66 for street repair and 
reconstruction. The additional amount thus made available for appro- 
priations was $4,556,817. 

SEGREGATED BUDGET, OR APPROPRIATIONS, ETC., 
FOR FINANCIAL YEAR, 1919-20. 

Total of regular appropriations from Tax Levy and General Income, 
$34,194,573, or $2,092,524 more than in 1918-19; for maintenance of all

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS RATIFIED, 1918. 
The 19 Articles of Amendment submitted by the State Constitutional 
Convention in 1918 to the voters, for decision, were all ratified by majorities 
ranging in Boston from 15,232 on the question of Compulsory Voting, to 
31,442 on Regulation of Advertising in Public Places. The most important 
question referred to the Establishment of the Popular Initiative and Refer- 
endum, Etc., the vote on which was: — Yes, 40,633; No, 16,257; Blanks, 
19,669. Boston's majority of 24,376 for this amendment saved it from 
rejection, the majority against it, in State outside Boston being 15,833. 
Likewise, Boston's majority for Compulsory Voting overcame the adverse 
majority outside by 5,735 votes. The majority for Biennial Elections of 
State Officers was 16,731. The most notable result of this extraordinary 
demand upon the voters was that 40 per cent (average) of the 76,559 who

cast ballots failed to express any opinion as to 18 of the 19 questions sub- 
mitted. Furthermore, 59 per cent of the registered voters failed to take 
any action on these important matters. 

SPECIAL COMMITTEES ON MARKET RENTALS. 

In December, 1918, the Mayor appointed a committee of three real- 
estate experts, viz.: Richards M. Bradley, F. Murray Forbes and Francis 
R. Bangs to investigate the subject of rents for space in Fanueil Hall and 
Quincy Markets, the 10-year leases of the tenants expirmg on December 31 
of said year. On March 6, 1919, this committee issued its report, recom- 
mending increase of rental of 15 per cent for 10-year leases and 7 per cent 
for 5-year leases, a charge of 75 cents per square foot per year for the second 
floor of Quincy Market and not less than $1.00 per foot for space on same 
divided into offices, also 15 cents a foot for storage space on attic floor. It 
was deemed advisable to use a portion of the revenue from increased rents 
in constructing a sanitary pavement around the market buildings, fur- 
nishing hot water washing facilities and ratproofing. 

After receiving the report of this committee, also another by the Finance 
Commission, the Mayor appointed a further committee consisting of 
George A. Flynn (Chairman of Finance Commission), Patrick J. McGourthy 
(Supt. of Markets) and Karl Adams (Assistant Corporation Counsel) to 
pass upon all recommendations. Under date of July .30, 1919, this com- 
mittee submitted its conclusions, which were substantially in agreement 
with the original committee's report as to rental charges for the next ten 
years, and recommended further that a charge of 50 cents a square foot be 
established for sub-sidewalk space, except that excavated within five years, 
for which the charge should be 25 cents a foot per year for the first half and 
50 cents for the second half of the 10-year term. City Document No. 80, 
1919, contains full details of this subject, with a list of the market leases 
and estimate of additional revenue expected.

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 appljning to all municipal employees 
aUke. 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 poUce (since 1878), firemen (since 1880), school 
teachers (since 1908), judges, prison officers. Civil War veterans (since 
1911) and laborers, skilled and unskilled. The largest class, i. e., the 
laborers, were provided for by Chapter 413, Acts of 1911, accepted by 
the City Council on October 26, 1911. Any laborer sixty years of age 
or over, who has served the City for twenty-five years and is physically 
incapacitated shall, at his request, be retired from service, receiving for 
the remainder of his Ufe an annual pension equal to one-haK of his pay 
for his final year's service. All retirements are subject to the approval 
of the Retirement Board, viz., the Mayor, City Auditor and City Treasurer, 
who serve without compensation. Retirement is compulsory when any 
laborer reaches the age of seventy. 

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

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

Chapter 63, Special Acts of 1915, provides that the Retirement Board 
may, upon request of the Mayor and City Council, retire any laborer who 
has been in the City's service for not less than fifteen years continuously 
and who, owing to injury, physical incompetency, old age or infirmity, 
may be incapacitated for further service. 

Chapter 55, Special Acts of 1919, amends Chapter 367, Acts of 1913, by 
striking out the pension hmit of $360 and fixing the annual allowance at 
one-half the compensation due for the final year's service. 

# Concerning pensions paid to school teachers, see pages 146 and 147. 



304 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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, 1919, the total number of pensioners was 1,287, divided 
as foUows: Laborers, 290; teachers, 317; firemen, 301; pohce, 239; veterans, 
108; various others, 32. Of the laborers, 256 were from the PubUc Works 
Dept. and 26 from the Park and Recreation Dept. 

The total of City and County pension payments in- the fiscal year 
1918-19 was $655,547, i. e. $23,003 more than in 1917-18, divided as 
foUows: Fire Dept., $187,916; Police Dept., $160,394; Pubhc Works 
Dept., $140,414; Dept. of School Committee, $118,221; Suffolk County,

missioner had issued General Order No. 110, adding to Rule 35 this 
clause, viz.: "No member of the force shall join or belong to any organ- 
ization, club or body . . . which is affiliated with or a part of any 
organization, club or body outside the department." Membership in 
societies of War Veterans was excepted. 

The effect of the patrolmen's walkout, leaving the City largely unpro- 
tected, was speedily disastrous, considerable rioting and looting of stores 
occurring on Sept. 9 and 10, during which eight persons were kiUed and 
thirty-three injured {i. e. hospital cases). Order was soon restored by 
the State Guard, of which about 7,500 were eventually on duty, aided

by the patrolmen who remained in the service, also by civilian volunteers. 
They continued to effectually police the City for some weeks after the 
disturbance. In General Order No. 124 the Police Commissioner stated 
that on the advice of the Attorney-General the positions formerly held 
by the deserting patrolmen were in fact and in law vacant and that he 
must proceed to fiU these vacancies with new men in compliance with the 
civil service laws. The Mayor appointed a Citizens' Committee of 
thirty-four, with James J. Storrow as chairman, to investigate the whole 
matter and submit a report. By General Order No. 128 the minimum 
salary of patrolmen was fixed at $1,400 per year instead of $1,100, to 
date from Sept. 18. 

Street Laying-Out Department (See page 98). — Edward P. Fogarty 
appointed Secretary -pro tern. 

As first enacted. Chapter 3, Ordinances of 1919 (see pp. 173-176) pro- 
vided for the annual inspection and hcensing of jitneys by the Police 
Commissioner. As this official was unwiUing to assume the duties, the 
ordinance was amended on Sept. 2 by substituting the Building Com- 
missioner. The latter also declined to serve and finally the business was 
placed in charge of the Street Commissioners. The City Record of Sept. 
13 contains a list of new jitney routes, stopping places and termini, with 
fares charged.
