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, February 2, 1920, and 
under the direction of the Committee on Rules, The 
Municipal Register for 1920 has been compiled and 
edited by the Statistics Department.

OEiaiN AND GftOWTH OF BOSTON. 



The Royal Patent incorporating the Governor and 
Company of Massachusetts Bay in New England passed 
the seals March *4, 1628-29. At a General Court, or 
Meeting of the Company, on August * 29 of that year it 
was voted 'Hhat the Government and patent should be 
settled in New England." To that end Governor Win- 
throp led the Puritan Exodus in 1630. Soon after his 
arrival at Salem on June *12, 1630, he proceeded with a 
large following to Charlestown, where a plantation had 
been established the summer before. The Assistants 
held three Courts at Charlestown in the interval, August 
*23 to September *28, inclusive. At their meeting 
on September *7, they ''ordered that Trimountaine 
shalbe called Boston; Mattapan, Dorchester; and the 
towne upon Charles River, Waterton." Thus Shawmut 
of the Indians was named Boston, probably out of grati- 
tude to the Merchants of Boston in Lincolnshire, who 
had subscribed generously to the stock of the Company. 

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

Boston was the first town in Massachusetts to become 
a city. It was incorporated February 23, 1822, by 
St. 1821, c. 110, adopted March 4, 1822. This act was 
revised by St. 1854, c. 448; amended by St. 1885, 
c. 266 and again by St. 1909, c. 486. 

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

* Old Style. 



ORIGIN AND GROWTH OF BOSTON. 7 

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

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 covmcil may,

loan order presented by the mayor and shall either adopt or reject the

The Trustees of the Pubhc 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 Council. About $50,225 of this appropriation was 
used in 1919 for the purchase of books and periodicals. The 41 Library 
trust funds in the custody of the City Treasurer amoimted to $673,749 on 
February 1, 1920, the annual interest on these being used for the purchase 
of books. 

The annual reports, the first of which appeared in 1852, have been 
continued without interruption. 

Of the Quarterly Bulletins begun in 1867, fourteen volumes have been 
published. The series closed in 1896. 

A Quarterly Bulletin of a new series is now issued, and a weekly hst 
of new books added to the Library. The Trustees have issued also general 
and special catalogues of the Central Librarj'^, and of its branches and 
special collections, as well as hand-books for readers, and other docu- 
ments. 

LIBRARY SYSTEM.

living in outlying districts can draw books from the Central Library without 
the necessity of coming in person. 

The deUvery or deposit of books is also undertaken in one hundred 
and ninety-one public and parochial schools, thirty-seven institutions and 
fifty-nine 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 formahty. Special cards for more extended privileges are issued 
to clergymen oflficiating 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, 1920, there were 102,391 card- 
holders having the right to draw books for home use. The total number 
of volumes was 1,197,498, and of different newspapers and periodicals 
currently received at the Central Library and branches about 3,059. 
Books issued in 1919, for home use and for use through schools and insti- 
tutions, numbered 2,300,732. Of reference use, on account of the freedom 
with which books may be consulted, no adequate statistics are kept.

MARKET DEPARTMENT. 

Office in Rotunda of Faneuil Hall Market. 

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

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

ends in 1922. 
Peter J. Connolly, Clerk and Deputy Superintendent. Salary, $1,900. 

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, estabMshed 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 at rents not less than those estab- 
lished by the City Council. The market pohce are appointed by the Police 
Commissioner and under his control. 

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

The Overseers of the Poor in the Town of Boston, a corporation estab- 
lished in 1772 by act of the Legislature, 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 Jan. 31, 1920, the number of cases of 
aid given was 30,076, including 13,136 men in Waj^arers' Lodge, 1,916 
women and children in Temporary Home and 15,024 persons, representing 
3,756 families, aided in their own homes by money, provisions, etc., of 
which 1,602 families were in the class provided for by Chapter 763, Acts of 
1913, i. e., mothers with dependent children under 14 years of age. Pay- 
ments to this class amounted to $586,341 it. e., $105,740 more than in 1918) 
against which there were receipts from the State and from other munic- 
ipalities amounting to $266,475 for their proportional part, according to 
the legal settlement of the mother. The total amount of the 17 permanent 
charity funds in the custody of the Overseers on Feb. 1, 1920, was $898,502.

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

Since the City's park development began, in 1877, the total expenditure, 
to the close of 1919, for parks, parkways and playgrounds (exclusive of 
the annual maintenance appropriation) is $22,998,086, or $9,716,498 
for the land and $13,281,588 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. All 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 wiUs of Benjamin Bussey and James Arnold, for Harvard's extensive 
collection of specimens of such trees and shrubs as will live in this climate. 
The City maintains the roads and walks, also, attends to policing the 
grounds. The Arboretum is open to visitors 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, 
1920, the amount expended for construction, etc., was $339,250. 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- 
rium, 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. PAKKMAN FUND. 

By the wUl 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 pinrchase 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. On 
February 1, 1920, the principal of the fimd in the custody of the City 
Treasurer amounted to $5,214,277. In the fiscal year 1919-20, the in- 
come from the fund was $199,070, i. e., 3.82 per cent (average), being 
mostly invested in City of Boston bonds.

The Commissioner of Pubhc Works, who must be a civil engineer of 
recognized standing in his profession, has control over the construction 
of all streets and sewers, with discretionary power as to grades, materials 
and other particulars; over the construction, care and management of 
all bridges used as highways, of the ferries owned and operated by the 
City, and of the street lamps maintained by the City in highways, park- 
ways and pubhc grounds; over the cleaning, repairing and sprinkling

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, 
amoimting to $1,000,000, to be voted by the City Council in sums of not 
less than $150,000 each j^ear. The total expenditure to Feb. 1, 1920, 
was $921,478, and the work completed, including the old salt-water fireboat 
line, comprises 9.53 miles of pipe with 262 hj^drants readj' for use and 
supplied by domestic high service at Tremont street, near West, from a 
16-inch gated connection. Total mileage of system to be 18.6 and three 
pumping and electric power stations to be ready in 1920.

Joseph .1. 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, 1920, 
was 969.91 miles, 8.67 miles having been added in 1919, and the gross City 
debt outstanding for all sewer construction up to said date was $21,541,080. 

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 already 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, 8J 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 beiiig 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 1919 amounted to 406,301 tons (of 2,000 lbs.), of which 341,264 tons 
were ashes, 58,641 tons garbage and 6,396 tons waste and rubbish (mostly 
paper). Contractors collected 152,128 tons and City employees, aided 
by hired teaming, collected 254,173 tons.

REMOVAL OF STORE REFtTSE. 

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 11 cents a barrel 
or bundle (not larger than a flour barrel). No removals are made except 
on dehvery of tickets obtainable at 504 City HaU Annex, or at the office 
of the Superintendent of Markets, Faneuil HaU Market. 

Water Division. 
Main Office, 606 City Hall Annex. 
Frank A. McInnes, Division Engineer. Salary, $5,000.

George H. Finneran, Superintendent, Distribution Branch. Salary, $3,100, 
James A. McMurry, Engineer in Charge, Meter and Waste Branch. 
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 aU 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, 
1920, was 876.52 miles; number of services in use, 108,542 (on January 1), 
of which about 59 per cent were metered; number of pubhc fire hydrants, 
9,741 ; 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 public introduction of water from Lake Cochituate took 
place on October 25, 1848. The history of the Boston Water Works up 
to January 1, 1868, has been written by Nathaniel J. Bradlee; from 1868 
to 1876, by Desmond FitzGerald; of the "Additional Supply from Sud- 
bury River," by A. Fteley. In addition to the annual reports on the 
Cochituate supply, from 1850, and of the Mystic supply, from 1866, there 
are numerous special reports. By chapter 449, Acts of 1895, the Boston 
Water Board, the Water Income Department and the Water Registrar 
were abohshed and the Water Department created, a single commissioner 
being entrusted with all the powers previously exercised by the Boston 
Water Board and the Boston Water Registrar. 

By Chapter 488, Acts of 1895, the State provided for a metropolitan 
water supply, Boston being included among the municipalities thus to be 
supplied. A State commission, the MetropoHtan Water Board, in accord- 
ance with said act, took possession, in 1898, of aU 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

As authorized by Chapter 680, Acts of 1913, the Street Commissioners 
issued on AprU 9, 1914, their "Rules and Regulations Relating to Projec- 
tions on or over PubHc Highways." These rules were amended in 1915, 
as authorized by Chapter 176, General Acts of that year, the changes

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 $1,570,198), of the tunnel to 
East Boston, opened December 30, 1904 (costing $3,336,000), 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 $8,496,700, 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 1906, a tunnel under Beacon Hill from 
the new Cambridge bridge to the Park street station of the Tremont 
street subway, as a connection with the Cambridge Main street subway 
built by 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 
feet in length), to connect Court street and ScoUay square with Bowdoin 
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. 
Irhe 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 Frankhn Foundation is incorporated under Chapter 569 of the 
Acts of 1908, and has sole charge of the Franklin Union, as well as the 
management of the Franklin Fund. 

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

* The Managers serve without compensation. 



122 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

Dr. Franklin, who died April 17, 1790, calculated that, in one hundred 
years, the thousand pounds would grow to £131,000, "of which," he says, 
"I would have the managers then lay out at their discretion £100,000 
in 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 
wHl 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 farthe r." 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 fund at the expiration of one hundred years; but on January 17, 
1894, by direction of the three ministers and the Board of Aldermen of 
the City, which board claimed to be the successors of the "Selectmen," 
$329,300.48 (if?- of the fund) was paid to the City Treasurer, for "the 
purchase of land and the erection thereon of the 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. Maj''or Collins, 
in 1902, caused a petition of the City to be filed in the Supreme Court, 
praying for instructions as to the authority of the persons then acting as 
Managers of the fund. The Court rendered an opinion November 25, 
1903 (184 Mass. 373, page 43), to the effect that the three ministers were 
Managers of the fund under Franklin's will, but that the Aldermen did 
not succeed the "Selectmen" as Managers and had no powers with refer- 
ence to it. The Court, under its general power to care for public 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 Franldin 
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, an,d in that year the 
Franklin Union Building was erected at the corner of Appleton and Berk- 
eley 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 
(i. e., the Andrew Carnegie Donation), which amounted to $460,478 on 
January 31, 1920. The building contains 24 classrooms and 6 draughting 
rooms, where about 1,600 students receive instruction, the fees ranging 
from $4 to $15, according to length of course. There is also a technical 
and scientific library, and a large hall with a seating capacity of 1,000

The Franklin Accumulating Fund, which will become available in 1991, 
amounted, on January 31, 1920, to $292,439.

The Board of Police for the City of Boston was established by Chapter 
323 of the Acts of 1885, and was composed of three citizens of Boston, 
appointed for five years from the two principal pohtical 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 Police, except those relating to the grant- 
ing of inteUigence office, biUiard and pool, skating rink, picnic grove, 
bowhng alley, common victualers' and hquor hcenses, which were trans- 
ferred to the newly created Licensing Board, devolve upon the Police 
Commissioner. 

The City is divided into nineteen PoUce 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 
PoUce 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, 1919, the police force numbered 1,568 men, including 
27 captains, 30 inspectors, 41 lieutenants, 125 sergeants and 1,343 patrol- 
men. The latter force was about 200 less than the normal number because 
of the walkout in September. Of said total 1,350 were distributed in 19 
divisions, 132 detailed for traffic control and 86 retained at department 
headquarters. There were 18 men in the signal service, whose director 
has charge of 504 signal boxes. In the calendar year 1919 the number of 
persons arrested was 64,370 or 26,010 less than in 1918, this notable decrease 
being due chiefly to the scarcity of intoxicating liquors under Federal 
prohibition (from July 1) and the resulting restriction of drunkenness. 
Of all arrests, 32,756 (i e. 50.89 per cent) were for drunkenness; non- 
residents arrested, 25,553 or 39.7 per cent; foreign-born persons, 23,116; 
women and girls, all ages, 5,234; boys imder 15 years of age, 2,200. In 
year ending November 30, 1919, persons imprisoned, 3,714; persons fined,

12,225, the fines amoiinting to $107,325; stolen property recovered, Sl,238,- 
206; licenses granted, 20,128 (including 8,292 for dogs and 8,828 for 
vehicles and drivers), for which $60,399 was received. Prosecutions for 
violation of automobile laws, 5,598, of which 2,926 were of non-residents 
and 683 of minors; for larceny and robbery, 3,717; assault, etc., 1,883; 
gambling, etc., 2,511: violation of street traffic regulations, etc., 1,789; 
burglary, 715. Reports of accidents in streets and parks show 144 kiUed 
and 3,156 injured. There were 5,195 sick and injiu-ed persons assisted, 
414 insane persons taken in charge and 1,859 lost children restored to 
their homes. During the year, 3,142 special police were appointed by 
request of City departments, corporations, etc., the Police Department 
not being responsible for their pay nor for any misconduct on their part. Of 
5,006 applications for license to carry loaded revolvers in 1919, 4,539 were 
granted and 467 rejected. 

Salaries: Captains, $3,500 per anntun; inspectors and lieutenants, 
$2,500; sergeants, $2,300; patrolmen, $1,400 1st year and $100 increase 
each year until $1,800 (maximum) 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.

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 facHities in the 
buUdtngs, yards and playgrounds under their control, also to make similar 
use of all such facilities in charge of the Park and Recreation Commis- 
sioners as the latter, with the Mayor's approval, might deem suitable. 

The sum available for this branch of education was raised in 1919 to 
eight cents on each $1,000 of the City's assessed valuation, and the appro- 
priation was accordingly increased to $111,469 for that year. 

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 aU pubhc schools. Under this 
arrangement the School Committee is reimbursed by the State to the 



144 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

extent of one half the net naaintenance cost of such industrial schools 
estabUshed 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

Continuation School. In 1919-20 the amount received from the State 
for this purpose was $90,267.

iSUMMER REVIEW SCHOOLS. 

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, and the registration of pupils in 1919 was 4,397, or 
3,997 in the elementary schools and 400 in the high school. Of the elemen- 
mentary school pupils, 77.31 per cent won promotion in 1919. 

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 
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 1919-20 amounted to $39,135. 
This plan was started by establishing four Evening Centers, each having 
a manager, in foiu* high schoolhouses, viz.: Charlestown, East Boston, 
Roxbury and South Boston, beginning in October, 1912, and continuing 
five months every year. Five more have since been opened, viz., in 
Michael Angelo schoolhouse. North End; in William Blackstone and 
Wiashington schoolhouses. West End; in the high schoolhouse and the 
Edward Everett schoolhouse, Dorchester. A variety of study clubs, 
lectures, concerts and other entertainments are included in these activities 
which engage the services of 109 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 meetings and entertainments in nine months 
ending June 30, 1919, numbered 324,282. The appeal of the School Center 
that "every plus talent of a community be used through it" for mutual 
benefit has met with gratifying response. The basements of 125 school- 
houses are used by the Election Department as polling places. 

PENSION AND RETIREMENT FUNDS FOR TEACHERS. 

As provided by Chapter 589, Acts of 1908, amended by Chapter 617, 
Acts of 1910 and by Chapter 304, Spec. Acts of 1915, the School Committee, 
by a majority vote of all its members, may retire with a pension any 
member of the teaching or supervising staff of the public day schools who 
has reached the age of sixty-five years, also such other members as are 
incapacitated for further efficient service. If the teacher retired has been 
employed in the public day schools for a period of thirty years or more, ten 
years of which has been in Boston, the pension paid amounts to one-third 



148 



MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



of the annual salary received at time of retirement, but in no case is it less 
than $312 nor more than $600 annuaUj^ If the period of service is less 
than thirty years, the pension is proportionally less. The School Com- 
mittee were authorized to provide for these pensions by appropriating 
annuallj' 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 Permanent School Pension 
Fimd amounted to -$355,898 on February 1, 1920, and 342 retired teachers 
were receiving pensions therefrom. 

The Boston Teachers' Retirement Fund Association, started in 1900, 
is paying $120 per year to 298 annuitants and smaller sums to five others, 
the total amount of its fund on February 1, 1920, being $617,135. At that 
date 2,995 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; Spec. Stat. 1915, Chap. 
333; Spec. Stat. 1919, Chap. 156.] 

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 CoUins, 
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.] 

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 
Acts of 1915. A new commission was thereby constituted, consisting 
of the Chairman of the City Planning Board, the Fire Commissioner and 
the BuUding 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.] 

District A. The boundaries newly estabUshed begin at the inter- 
section of Wauwatosa st. and Chelsea creek (Ward 1, East Boston), 
thence extend easterly through Wauwatosa and Boardman sts. to Saratoga 
St., thence southwesterly and westerly through Saratoga and Addison sts. 
to the B. & M. R.R., thence along said railroad to Saratoga st., thence

railroad to the northern boundary of Wood Island Park (Ward 1), thence 
easterly along same to the harbor line, thence along said line of Boston 
Harbor and Chelsea creek to the point of beginning. These are the East 
Boston boundaries of District A. 



REGULATION OF THE HEIGHT OF BUILDINGS. 183 

The boundaries in Charlestown begin at the Maiden Bridge (Ward 3), 
thence extend southerly through Alford st. to SuUivan sq., thence 
southeasterly through Bunker Hill and Medford sts. to Chelsea st. 
(Ward 4), thence southerly through latter to Henley st., thence westerly 
through same, Harvard sq. and Harvard st. to Washington st., thence 
through latter and Rutherford ave. northwesterly to Sullivan sq. 
thence through Cambridge st. to the City hne, thence along said line and 
the Charles river to Charlestown Bridge, thence along the harbor line and 
the Mystic river to the point of beginning. 

In the City proper the boundaries begin at the intersection of the City 
hne with the Charles river dam (Ward 5), thence extend along said dam 
and Leverett st. to Green st., thence through Green, Staniford and Cam- 
bridge sts. to Bowdoin st., thence southerly through same. Beacon, Park 
and Tremont sts. to Boylston st., thence through latter, Massachusetts 
ave. and the line of the N. Y., N. H. & H. R.R. (Providence Div.) to 
Tremont st. at Roxbury Crossing, thence through Colimibus ave., Rox- 
bury St., Guild row and Dudley st. to Columbia rd. (Upham's Corner), 
thence through same to Dorchester ave., thence southerly to Park st. 
(Ward 20), and through latter and Adams st. to Neponset ave., thence 
through said avenue to the N. Y., N. H. & H. R.R. (Milton Branch), 
thence along said railroad and through Granite ave. to the Neponset 
river, thence easterly and northerly along the shore of said river and the 
harbor Unes of Dorchester bay and Old Harbor to the intersection of 
Old Colony ave. and Columbia rd., thence northerly along Old Colony 
ave. to E st. (South Boston), thence through latter, Broadway, Dorches- 
ter and East Second sts. to I st., thence northerly through I to East First 
St. and easterly through latter to Farragut rd., thence northerly through 
same and Farragut rd. extended across the reserved channel, thence along 
the harbor line of South Boston to Northern Avenue Bridge, thence 
westerly along said bridge to the harbor line of Boston Proper, thence 
northerly and westerly along said harbor line and Charles river to the point 
of beginning. 

Wherever a boundary line of District A is described as following a cer- 
tain street, the same is intended to include all property on that side of the 
street which Ues 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 aU streets upon which the building is situated 
and not to exceed in any event 100 feet above such point of measurement. 
On all streets or portions of streets upon which buildings may be erected 



184 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

on one side only, the buildings may be erected to a height of 100 feet. No 
building may be erected to a height greater than 80 feet imless its width 
on each and every pubhc 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, 
Belvidere 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 applies 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, skyhghts, ventilators, flagstaffs, raihngs, 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 Asylima 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. 



CITY RECORD. 185 

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.] 

By Chap. 156, Special Acts of 1919, section four of Chap. 383, Acts of 
1905, was amended so as to allow roof houses, skyhghts, etc., above the roof 
Une, used to enclose elevator shafts, an additional space of four feet on 
all sides (or 16 feet square in aU), but not to exceed 12 feet in height. 
AH such roof structures of first-class buildings may be constructed of angle 
iron and four-inch blocks, plastered inside and outside, or covered on both 
sides with metal or angle iron, and two-inch sohd metal lath and plaster 
walls may be used, the door to be of metal frame and covered with metal. 



CITY RECORD. 



[Stat. 1909, Chap. 486, §§ 29, 30.] 

In accordance with the Amended City Charter of 1909, the weekly 
pubUcation 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 bUl 
proposed by Mayor Hart, entitled "An Act relative to the Advertising of 
Legal Notices m 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 nmnber, 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 first 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 expenditm-es. In every year since, except 



186 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

1912-13 (when a small revenue excess was showTi) 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 numbered 794. The edition varies 
but slightly, or between 1,000 and 1,300 copies. By. using its own official 
pubHcation 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 pubhcations.

OF THE 

Twenty-Six Wards 

ESTABLISHED IN 1915. 



188 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



THE WARDS OF BOSTON. 



Wards with definite boundaries by streets were first established in 1715. 
There were eight wards, three in the North End and five in the South 
End, from that year until 1735, when the number was increased to twelve. 
The ward lines then fixed remained substantially unchanged for seventy 
years until the division made by the Selectmen in 1805. In 1822, when 
the town became a city, there was a redivision on the basis of the U. S. 
Census of 1820, the number stUl 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 nxmiber 
was increased to 25 and in 1912 another annexation, viz.: Hyde Park, 
brought the total to 26. In 1885 an attempt was fnade 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 estabUshing 
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 
Legislature in June, 1886,^ which provided that the several wards, pre- 
cincts, and assessment districts of the several cities of the Commonwealth, 
existing May 1, 1885, should be established as the wards, precincts, and 
assessment districts of said cities, any acts or ordinances of the city coun- 
cils of said cities to the contrary notwithstanding. The new division of 
wards was thus set aside and the ward lines established in 1875 remained 
in effect until they were changed in 1895 and established under the pro- 

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

■ An ordinance making a new division of the city into wards passed Dec. 23, 1885.

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 boundaries 
of 26 wards as below.

STATISTICS 

OF 

Population and Area. 



220 municipal register. 

Enumerated Population of Boston, 

U. S. Census, January i, 1920, 

747,923.* 

enumerated population of boston, 

state census, april 1, 1915, 

745,439. 



According to the U. S. Census Bureau the population of Boston on 
January 1, 1920, was 747,923, an increase of 77,338, or 11.53 per cent, 
since AprU 15, 1910, when it was 670,585 (Federal Census); and of only 
2,484, or one-third of one per cent, over the enumeration of the State 
Census, April 1, 1915, viz., 745,439. Of the said increase (viz., 77,338) 
15,936 was due to the annexation of Hyde Park in. 1912, leaving but 
61,402 as the normal gain for the 10 years, as compared with 109,693 for 
the preceding 10 years. This unaccountable decrease in Boston's habitual 
rate of growth during the past hah-century — i. e., an average increase 
of 13.18 per cent for every five years since 1870 — cannot be explained 
by any of the observed and recorded changes in the movement of popu- 
lation during the last decade. Hence, the 1920 census figures have been 
under suspicion ever since they were pubHshed on June 6 last, as of Janu- 
ary 1, 1920. 

After careful investigation, the Boston Statistics Department announces 
conclusions as follows, proving that the said 1920 Census is considerably 
short of the correct total for Boston: 

1. The records of the Boston Health Dept. show that the excess of 
births over deaths from 1910 to 1919, inclusive, numbered 69,736 (see 
table, page 298). This is a higher percentage of births to deaths {i. e., 160 
per cent, total births being 185,958 and total deaths 116,222) than in the 
preceding decade, 1900 to 1909, inclusive, when the births numbered 
162,710 and the deaths 106,365 {i. e., 153 per cent). Tliis natural increase 
alone brought the 1910 population {i. e., 670,585) up to 740,321 in 1920. 

2. By the State Census of 1915, the total number of foreign-born 
inhabitants was 268,154, or an increase of 24,789 over the number in 
1910, viz., 243,365. That increase, added to the previously shown in- 
creased total (i. e., 740,321) brings the new total up to 765,110 or 17,187 
more than the census of 1920 allows. 

3. The 1915 Census showed the total of native-born inhabitants as 
477,285, or 50,065 more than in 1910. Deducting therefrom the excess of 
births over deaths in the five years, 1910 to 1914, inclusive, or 34,638 
(because already counted in the 69,736 first mentioned) there remains 

* Subject to correction. 



POPULATION OF BOSTON, 1920. 221 

15,427 to count as further increase of native-born (i. e., new residents of 
Boston coming from points in IT. S. outside Boston) bringing the total up 
to 780,537, or 32,614 more than the 1920 Census allows. So far the figures 
are beyond dispute, removals from the City being less in number than the 
new residents, since the 1915 census. 

4. It appears certain that the accessions of foreign-born from 1915 to 
1919 were only about 26 per cent of same in the preceding five years. The 
immigrant aliens bound for Massachusetts from 1915 to 1919, inclusive, 
nimibered but 108,948 as compared with 418,522 in the preceding five 
years. Applying this same percentage, or 26 per cent, to the actual increase 
of foreign-born from 1910 to 1914, inclusive (i. e., 24,789), gives 6,445 
as the minimum estimate for the addition of such to the 1920 total, 
bringing it up to 786,982. 

5. No figures having been given out (up to August 20, 1920) for the 
total of native-born population in 1920, the only course open is to make a 
minimiim estimate on the basis of the observed increase from 1910 to 1914, 
inclusive. The natural increase by excess of births over deaths was 35,098 
from 1915 to 1919, inclusive, which is already coimted in the above-stated 
69,736. There is abundant evidence to show that the net increase from 
new residents coming to Boston from other places in U. S. over those 
removing from Boston was fully as much in the last five years as in the 
similar period preceding (for instance, the increase in assessed poUs and 
in the Police List). A conservative addition still needing to be made is 
therefore the same niunber as above given for the five years, 1910-1915, 
viz., 15,427. This brings the total to 802,409 as the probable approximate 
but not yet proved total for Boston's population in 1920. 

The consideralale number of men (both native-born and foreign-born) 
who left Boston on accoimt of the World War from 1915 to 1918 was offset 
by returns and accessions in 1918 and 1919, as shown by the annual Police 
Census of men, 20 years of age and over. Instead of anj^ decrease, there 
was a net increase of 13,274 (largely native-born men) in the Police List 
from 1915 to 1920, against 9,209 increase from 1905 to 1910. 

If the population had increased at the same rate from 1910 to 1919, 
inclusive, as in the preceding ten years, the total for 1920 would have been 
801,751, or only 658 less than the above well-based estimate of 802,409. 
The only faUing off from the 1900-1910 rate of increase was in the foreign- 
born accessions — not more than 15,000 to 20,000 less of such — .and that 
loss was offset by a net gain of 13,391 in excess of births over deaths, plus 
another net gain of about 6,000 in native-born adults, as compared with 
the preceding decade. 

By way of other telling facts, the total assessed poUs increased 39,399 
from 1910 to 1920, or 20.12 per cent as compared with an increase of 23,404 
or only 13.57 per cent in the preceding ten years. There is small chance, 
if any, that the assessed polls could increase 20.12 per cent while the popu- 
lation gained but 11.53 per cent, aU that the 1920 census so far allows. 
It has been found that the most refiable check on the increase of population 



222 



MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



is the percentage relation of assessed polls to population. The record for 
the seven census years 1885 to 1915, inclusive, shows but sUght variation, 
the percentage being 28.72 in 1885, 28.34 in 1890, 28.67 in 1895, 29.68 in 
1900, 30.80 in 1905, 29.65 in 1910, 28.09 in 1915. The percentage for 1920 
jumps 3.36 from that of 1915, or to 31.45 per cent. This is a fair indication 
that the population figures given out are too low by about 54,000. A total 
of 801,923 (instead of 747,923) would give the far more Ukely percentage of 
29.34 for 1920. 

Aside from all estimates, the proved total, which the 1915 State Census 
verifies, is 780,537, or 32,614 more than the 1920 census allows.

Note.— In accordance with chapter 279, Acts of 1903, amended by chapter 291, Acta 
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.

$11,758,899 or 42.32 per cent; the special appropriations (i. e., from Tax 
Levy, etc.) increased $4,323,644 or 703.20 per cent, of which $2,365,563

For lists of 1920 appropriations with per cent of each department's allow- 
ance to the whole budget, see pages 240 and 241. 

TAX LIMIT FOR YEARS 1920 AND 1921. 

As in 1918 and 1919, the tax limit of $6.52 on each $1,000 of valuation 
for general City purposes was raised to permit the necessary increase 
of appropriations, the said limit being $10.52 for 1920, or $1.00 more 
than in the two preceding years (See Chap. 252, Special Acts, 1919). 
This is an increase of 65 per cent over the tax limit for City purposes 
in 1915. The amount thus made available for 1920 appropriations was 
$15,678,410, i. e. for general City purposes, not including the appropria- 
tions for Debt Requirements, Coimty and Schools. 

The separate tax limit for all School purposes in 1920 is $8.15 on each 
$1,000 of valuation ($1.44 of this added by Chap. 524, Acts of 1920), 
making the total available for appropriations from taxes, etc., by School 
Committee, $12,146,297. This is an increase of 94 per cent over the 
tax limit for Schools in 1915. 

In a statement by the Mayor to the Committee on Municipal Finance of 
the Legislature, March 15, 1920, it was shown that the financial require- 
ments for general City purposes in 1921 called for a tax limit of $11.52 
(see City Record of March 20, 1920, pp. 344, 345) . The Legislature in May 
following made the limit $11 for 1921 Csee Chap. 401).

remainder of serial Water debt, viz., $336,000 for Hyde Park Water Works, 
the Cochituate Water debt having been amortized in 1915. 

Net debt per capita (estimated population, 803,309 on Feb. 1), $100.72; 
net debt exclusive of Rapid Transit debt, $50,150,982.11, or $62.43 per 
capita, which is $22.24 less per capita than in 1910. Loans authorized 
but not issued (within debt limit), $1,467,500; debt incurring power (within 
debt limit) estimated for year 1920-21, $2,104,750.

debt in the two years 1918 and 1919, $3,661,779.57. Percentage of debt 
paid in 1919 to debt contracted, 184.54. 

Total debt incurred in the ten years, 1910 to 1919 incl., $52,100,033, 
of which $19,945,000, or 38.28 per cent, was Rapid Transit debt. 

Total amount of debt incurred by the City in the 97 years since its 
incorporation fin 1822), $259,324,437, of which 58 per cent belongs to the 
last 25 years; 20.1 per cent to the last 10 years.

In only two years since 1891-92 was the total of debt contracted as 
small as that of 1919-20, viz., in 1900-01 and 1918-19. The yearly average 
for the 25 years prior to 1919 was $6,151,368, or 91.62 per cent in excess of 
the 1919 loans. 

CITY'S RIGHT TO BORROW WITHIN DEBT LIMIT 
DIMINISHED. 

On account of the Income Tax law (Chap. 269, Gen. Acts of 1916) in 
effect in 1917, the valuation basis of the debt limit decreased because of 
the exemption of about one-half the total personalty from taxation, that 
portion being classed as intangible property. The average yearly bor- 
rowing capacity (inside the debt hmit) was $3,990,741 for the four years 
1917-20, or $1,413,942 less than the same in the years, 1910-16.

RETIREMENT LAWS AND PENSIONS.* 
By Chapter 619, Acts of 1910, amended by Chapter 338, Acts of 1911, 
cities and towns are authorized to establish the retirement and contributory 
pension system therein set forth and applying to aU 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 pohce (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 phj^sically 
incapacitated shall, at his request, be retired from service, receiving for 
the remainder of his life an annual pension equal to one-half of his pay 
for his final year's service. All retirements are subject to the approval 
of the Retir^ement 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, provide 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. 

# Concerning pensions paid to school teachers, see pages 147 and 148. 



ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS. 315 

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 limit of $360 and fixing the annual allowance at 
one-half the compensation due for the final year's service. 

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
