INTRODUCTION. 



The City has annually since 1821 issued a volume 
containing, until 1829, a register of the City Council 
and a list of the officers. In 1829 the City Charter, in 
1830 the Acts relating to Boston and the ordinances, 
and in 1832 an index, were added. The volume for 
1822 contains fifteen pages, and for 1840 eighty-five 
pages, and three pages of index. The volumes up to and 
including 1840 bear the title of The Rules and Orders 
of the Common Council and since that year the title 
of The Municipal 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 7, 1921, and 
under the direction of the Committee on Rules, The 
Municipal Register for 1921 has been compiled and 
edited by the Statistics Department. 



MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



OEIGIN AND GROWTH OF BOSTON. 



The Royal Patent incorporating the Governor and 
Company of Massachusetts Bay in New England passed 
the seals March *4, 1628-29. At a General Court, or 
Meeting of the Company, on August *29 of that year it 
was voted "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 
shall be 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 latter part of August, 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 by the voters 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 Woollaston" was set off as Braintree, 
Boston exercised jurisdiction over a territory of at least 
40,000 acres. Within its present limits there are 30,598 
acres, including flats and water. 

Since 1640, grants of land have been made to Boston 
by the General Court as follows: (1) October *16, 1660, 
1,000 acres "for the use of a free schoole, layd out in 
the wildernesse or North of the Merimake River" (in 
Haverhill), in 1664. (2) June *27, 1735, in abatement 
of Province Tax, three townships, each six miles square, 
or 69,120 acres in all. These townships later became 
the Towns of Charlemont, Colrain, and Pittsfield. 
Boston sold its interest in them on June *30, 1737, for 
£3,660. (3) June 26, 1794, a township of land in 
Maine (23,040 acres) "to build a public hospital." This 
tract was sold by the City April 6, 1833, for $4,200. 

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

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

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

9, 1867. Roxbury received its name by order of the Court of 
Assistants October * 8, 1630. It was incorporated as 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, i. 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 purposes as he may deem to be for 
the welfare of the city. The city council shall consider each ordinance or 
loan order presented by the mayor and shall either adopt or reject the 
same within sixty days after the date when it is filed as aforesaid. If the 
said ordinance or loan order is not rejected within said sixty days it shall 
be in force as if adopted by the city council unless previously withdrawn 
by the mayor. Nothing herein shall prevent the mayor from again

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

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

fiscal year shall submit to the city council the annual budget of the current 
expenses of the city and county, and may submit thereafter supplemen- 
tary budgets until such time as the tax rate for the year shall have been 
fixed. The city council may reduce or reject any item, but without the 
approval of the mayor shall not increase any item in, nor the total of a 
budget, nor add any item thereto, nor shall it originate a budget. It 
shall be the duty of the city and county officials, when requested by the 
mayor, to submit forthwith in such detail as he may require estimates 
for the next fiscal year of the expenditures of the department or office 
under their charge, which estimates shall be transmitted to the city council. 

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

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

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

Sect. 5. Except as otherwise provided in this act, the organization, 
powers, and duties of the executive departments of the city shall remain 
as constituted at the time when this section takes effect; but the mayor 
and city council at any time may by ordinance reorganize, consolidate, 
or abolish departments in whole or in part; transfer the duties, powers, 
and appropriations of one department to another in whole or in part; 
and establish new departments; and may increase, reduce, establish or 
abolish salaries of heads of departments, or members of boards. Nothing 
in this act shall authorize the abolition or the taking away of any of 
the powers or duties as established by law of the assessing department, 
building department, board of appeal, children's institutions department, 
election department, fire department, Franklin Foundation, hospital 
department, library department, overseers of the poor, schoolhouse

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

Sect. 7. The city council at any time may request from the mayor 
specific information on any municipal matter within its jurisdiction, 
and may request his presence to answer written questions relating thereto 
at a meeting to be held not earlier than one week from the date of the 
receipt of said questions, in which case the mayor shall personally, or 
through a head of a department or a member of a board, attend such 
meeting and 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.

officer, or employee thereof shall, except as otherwise provided in this 
act, directly or indirectly on behalf of the city or of the county of Suf-

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

conduct of the executive or administrative business of the city or county ; 
nor in the appointment or removal of any municipal or county employee; 
nor in the expenditure of public money except such as may be necessary 
for the contingent and incidental expenses of the city council. The pro- 
visions of this section shall not affect the powers or duties of the city coun- 
cil as the successor of the present board of aldermen relative to state 
or military aid and soldiers' relief. 

It shall be unlawful for the mayor or for a member of the city coun- 
cil or for any officer or employee of the city or of the county of Suffolk 
or for a member of the finance commission directly or indirectly to make 
a contract with the city or with the county of Suffolk, or to receive any 
commission, discount, bonus, gift, contribution or reward from or any 
share in the profits of any person or corporation making or performing 
such contract, unless such mayor, member of the city council, officer, 
or employee or member of the finance commission immediately upon 
learning of the existence of such contract or that such contract is pro- 
posed, shall notify in writing the mayor, city council, and finance com- 
mission of such contract and of the nature of his interest in such contract 
and shall abstain from doing any official act on behalf of the city in reference 
thereto. In case of such interest on the part of an officer whose duty it 
is to make such contract on behalf of the city, the contract may be made 
by any other officer of the city duly authorized thereto by the mayor, 
or if the mayor has such interest by the city clerk: -provided, however, 
that when a contractor with the city or county is a corporation or voluntary 
association, the ownership of less than five per cent of the stock or shares 
actually issued shall not be considered as being an interest in the contract 
within the meaning of this act, and such ownership shall not affect the 
validity of the contract, unless the owner of such stock or shares is also 
an officer or agent of the corporation or association, or solicits or takes 
part in the making of the contract. 

A violation of any provision of this section shall render the contract 
in respect to which such violation occurs voidable at the option of the 
city or county. Any person violating the provisions of this section shall 
be punished by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars, or by 
imprisonment for not more than one year, or both. Chapter five hundred

out confirmation by the city council. They shall be recognized experts 
in such work as may devolve upon the incumbents of said offices, or

of the nominee under such rules as they may, with the consent of the

petent person with the requisite qualifications, they shall file with the 
city clerk a certificate signed by at least a majority of the commission 
that they have made a careful inquiry into the qualifications of the 
appointee, and that in their opinion he is a recognized expert, or that 
he is qualified by education, training or experience for said office, as 
the case may be, and that they approve the appointment. Upon the 
filing of this certificate the appointment shall become operative, subject 
however to all provisions of law or ordinance in regard to acceptance 
of office, oath of office, and the fifing of bonds. If the commission does 
not within thirty days after the receipt of such notice file said certificate 
with the city clerk the appointment shall be void.

the financial year to the Mayor, who, after 30 days' consideration, submits 
them to the City Council with his recommendations. The commissioner

One Election Commissioner is appointed by the Mayor each year, term 
beginning April 1. The Chairman of the Board is designated annually by 
the Mayor. 

The Board of Registrars of Voters was appointed in May, 1874, and 
was succeeded July 1, 1895, by the Board of Election Commissioners. 

This department exercises all the powers and duties formerly conferred 
upon the Board of Registrars of Voters, including the preparation of the 
jury list, together with all the powers and duties formerly conferred upon 
the Mayor, Board of Aldermen and City Clerk, relating to elections in the 
City of Boston, except the power and duty of giving notice of elections and 
fixing the days and hours for holding the same. 

The Board also exercises all the powers and duties formerly conferred 
upon the City Clerk and other officers by chapter 504 of the Acts of 1894, 
and acts in amendment thereof, relating to political committees and 
primaries, and all laws relating to the registration of voters in the City 
of Boston. For information concerning the new voting precincts as 
increased to 274 by the Election Commissioners in March, 1921, in accord- 
ance with Chap. 636, Acts of 1920, see Election Board's document dated 
Mar. 28, 1921. 

In the 1921 session of the Legislature there were seven Acts passed con-

the special statute of February 13, 1799. The first collected edition of 
the statutes under which this Board acted was published in 1811, and 
contained also the regulations of the Board. The latter was abolished 
by the first City Charter, and from 1822 to 1873 its functions were 
exercised through the City Council. The last Board of Health waa 
established by an ordinance of December 2, 1872, and organized January 
15, 1873. It published annual reports, beginning with 1873. By Chap. 1, 
Ord. 1914, 2d Series, the department was placed in charge of one 
executive, the Health Commissioner, the latter to appoint the deputy 
commissioners. Chap. 1, Ord. 1915, provided that the quarantine serv- 
ice should pass from the control of the Health Department on the date

By Chap. 7, Ordinances of 1920, the four departments having the 
management of the City's charitable and correctional institutions, viz., 
the Infirmary, Children's, Penal and Registration Departments, were 
consolidated in a single department known as the Institutions Department. 
This was placed under the supervision and control of one official, i. e., the 
Commissioner of Institutions, to be appointed by the Mayor under the 
provisions of Chap. 486, Acts of 1909, for term of four years and to receive 
a yearly salary of $7,500. Subject to the provisions of Chap. 222, Special 
Acts of 1919, the Mayor may appoint, and fix the compensation of, not 
more than two deputy commissioners who shall perform such duties as 



LAW DEPARTMENT. 61 

the Commissioner shall direct. The appointment of but one such was 
confirmed, i. e., to take charge of the Chili Welfare Division established 
in the new department by the Commissioner. Besides this division there 
are three others, viz., Central Office, Infirmary, and Penal. 

CHIEF OFFICERS OF INSTITUTIONS. 

John J. Ryan, Supt. of Long Island Almshouse and Hospital. Salary,. 

$3,500. 
George M. Harlow, Master of House of Correction. Salary, $2,500. 

From 1857 to 1885 the public institutions were in charge of a Board of 
Directors, twelve in number; from 1885 to 1889, in charge of a board 
consisting of nine members; from 1889 to 1895, in charge of the Board 
of Commissioners of Public Institutions, three in number. By Chapter 
449 of the Acts of 1895, the institutions were placed under the charge of 
one commissioner, known as the Institutions Commissioner. By Chapters 
395 and 451 of the Acts of 1897, the control of the institutions was divided; 
the Penal Institutions Commissioner to have the care of the Penal Insti- 
tutions Department and separate Boards of Trustees being appointed 
for the Children's Institutions, the Pauper Institutions, and the Insane 
Hospital. In 1908 the name of the Pauper Institutions Department was 
changed to the Infirmary Department, and the State took over the Insane 
Hospital. The two schools formerly in charge of the Children's Inst. 
Trustees having been discontinued, the Parental School in 1914 and the 
Suffolk School for Boys in 1920, the child welfare activities are now con- 
fined to a placing-out system whereby neglected and dependent children 
committed by the courts are boarded or indentured in country families in 
Massachusetts. Disciplinary day schools are maintained by the School 
Committee to take care of such juvenile offenders as were formerly com- 
mitted to the said training schools. 

The institution steamboats, "Monitor" for Deer Island and "George A. 
Hibbard" for Long Island transportation, continue in service. 

In 1920 the number of children cared for was 1,804; inmates of Long 
Island Almshouse, 1,294; persons confined in House of Correction, 936 or 
868 less than in 1919, this notable decrease chiefly due to the prohibition 
of intoxicants, resulting in far fewer arrests for drunkenness than before.

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 Council. Of this appropriation about $60,000 was 
used in 1920 for the purchase of books and periodicals. The 41 Library

trust funds in the custody of the City Treasurer amounted to $674,532 on 
February 1, 1921, the annual interest on these being used for the purchase 
of books. 

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

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

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

LIBRARY SYSTEM. 

The Library system consists of the Central Library in Copley square; 
sixteen branch libraries with independent collections of books; fourteen 
reading-rooms (minor branches), all of which contain deposits of books 
from the Central Library, reference books and periodicals. There were, 
on February 1, 1921, in the Central Library, branch libraries 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 193 public and 
parochial schools, 36 institutions and 59 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 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, 1921, there were 105,458 card- 
holders having the right to draw books for home use. The total number 
of volumes was 1,224,510, and of different newspapers and periodicals 
currently received at the Central Library and branches something over 
3,000. Books issued in 1920, for home use and for use through schools and 
institutions, numbered 2,448,776. Of reference use, on account of the 
freedom with which books may be consulted, no adequate statistics are 
kept. *

courses. Story telling for children is regularly conducted under expert 
direction at the Central Library and principal branches. On the ground 
floor of the Central Library near the main entrance are three rooms, wherein 
is provided a community and general information service. One of the 
rooms serves as a library reception office where the inquirer has his question 
either answered, or is directed to the proper source of information within 
or outside the building. In the second room is maintained a classified 
collection of some 3,000 current Federal documents, including congressional, 
departmental and miscellaneous publications. Current Massachusetts

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. McGotjrtht, Superintendent of Markets. Salary, $3,000. Term 

ends in 1922. 
Peter J. Connolly, Clerk and Deputy Superintendent. Salary, $2,100. 

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, established the office 
of Superintendent. According to the Revised Ordinances of 1898, Chap. 
1, § 4, tenth, Faneuil Hall Market includes the lower floor, porches and 
cellar of the buildings called respectively Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. 
The Superintendent has charge and control of these two buildings. He 
may assign stands within their limits; and it is his duty, from time to 
time, to lease the stalls in the market at rents not less than those estab- 
lished by the City Council. The market police 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 $t,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, 1921, the number of cases of 
aid given was 20,094, including 3,844 men in Wayfarers' Lodge, 1,830 
women and children in Temporary Home and 14,420 persons, representing 
3,605 families, aided in their own homes by money, provisions, etc., of 
which 1,476 families were in the class provided for by Chapter 763, Acts of 
1913, i. e. t mothers with dependent children under 14 years of age. Pay- 
ments to this class amounted to $637,017 (i. e., $50,676 more than in 1919) 
against which there were receipts from the State and from other munic- 
ipalities amounting to $187,224 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, 1921, was $907,894.

Power to establish parks in Boston was granted by the Commonwealth 
on May 6, 1875, subject to acceptance by the people. This act was 
accepted by a vote of the citizens on June 9, 1875; yeas, 3,706; nays, 
2,311. The first Board of Park Commissioners was appointed on July 8, 
1875, and confirmed on July 15, 1875. The Board consisted of three 
members who served without compensation. As thus constituted, the 
department continued up to 1913, when, by the provisions of Chapter 10, 
Ordinances of 1912, which went into effect in March, 1913, it was merged 
with the Public Grounds, Bath and Music Departments, under the name 
of Park and Recreation Department. By Ordinances of 1920, Chap. 13, 
the Cemetery Department was merged with the Park Department (of 
which it became the Cemetery Division) , the latter title of the department 
being substituted for Park and Recreation Department, and the salary of 
the chairman was increased to $7,000. The chairman of the Board of 
Commissioners is now a salaried official and required to devote his entire 
time to the work, likewise the Deputy Commissioner.

Since the City's park devolopment began, in 1877, the total expenditure, 
to the close of 1920, for parks, parkways and playgrounds (exclusive of 
the annual maintenance appropriation) is $23,363,531, or $9,746,429 for 
the land and $13,617,102 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 



PARK DEPARTMENT. 77 

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

The new Franklin Park Zoological Garden on the northern side of the 
park, begun in 1911, now occupies about eighty acres. Up to February 1, 
1921, 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, in 1914 the elephant house and in 1920 the lion 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 Aquarium, costing $144,530 for construction, etc., was opened 
to the public on November 28, 1912. The entire outlay for both was 
appropriated from the George F. Parkman Fund income? 

GEORGE F. PARKMAN FUND. 

By the will of the late George F. Parkman, various real estate properties 
worth between $5,000,000 and $6,000,000 were left to the City, the income 
therefrom to be expended for the maintenance and improvement of the 
Common and such parks as were in existence January 12, 1887, and no 
part of it to be used for the 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. On 
February 1, 1921, the principal of the fund in the custody of the City 
Treasurer amounted to $5,377,877. In the fiscal year 1920-21, the in- 
come from the fund was $194,690 , i. e., 3.82 per cent (average), being 
mostly invested in City of Boston bonds.

Cemetery Division. 

When in November, 1920, the Cemetery Department was consolidated 
with the Park Department, the five trustees of the former were superseded 
by the Park Commissioners, who reorganized it as the Cemetery Division 
of the Park Department, thereupon taking charge of Mount Hope 
Cemetery and all the burying grounds owned by the City. Mount Hope 
Cemetery (the largest of all) was bought by the City in 1857 for $35,000, 
and additional land has been purchased since. It is bounded by Walk Hill, 
Harvard, Canterbury and Paine streets, Ward 24. The Board of Cemetery 
Trustees was first appointed under the ordinances of December 21, 
1857, and annual reports have been published since 1859. 

All the cemeteries formerly under control of the said Board but now in 
charge of the Park Department, are as follows, with area: 

Bennington street, East Boston, 157,500 square feet.

ordered by the City Council, amounting in recent years to about $35,000. 
During the past five years its efficiency has been largely increased; it now 
handles practically all of the extensive printing business of the City and 
County departments, and ranks among the profitable public service 
enterprises. On February 1, 1921, the plant equipment was valued at 
$22,818 (after deduction for depreciation), the number of employees was 
98, the total income for year ending January 31, 1921 was $381,604, of

County Courts, etc., and the year's earnings amounted to $71,210 or 
$40,357 (i. e., 130.8 per cent) more than in 1919, due chiefly to increased 
prices for printing.

84 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

By Chapter 9, Ordinances of 1910, approved by the Mayor November 
28, 1910, and taking effect February 1, 1911, the Department of Public 
Works was established, consisting of the Street, Water and Engineering 
Departments combined under a single executive head (viz., the Com- 
missioner of Public Works), the latter authorized to create the necessary 
divisions of the department according to his judgment. The following 
three divisions were created by the Commissioner, viz., Bridge and Ferry 
Division, Highway Division and Sewer and Water Division, each in 
charge of a Division Engineer. 

The Commissioner of Public 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 public grounds; over the cleaning, repairing and sprinkling 
of streets and the removal of house offal and refuse in the various 
districts of the City; over the maintenance and operation of all fixtures 
and appliances held by the City for purposes of water supply; and over 
the granting of permits to open, occupy, obstruct and use portions of 
streets. 

By authority of Chapter 571, Acts of 1910, the Commissioner of Public 
Works charges for permits issued, as per the following revised schedule in 
effect from April 1, 1920: 

1. Openings in streets or sidewalks, 50 cents each. Limited to 100 linear feet on one 
permit. 

2. Emergency permits, Class A (for the above purpose), 50 cents each. 

3. Advertising by man wearing hat and coat lettered (annual permit), $5 (or $1 per 
month). 

4. Cleaning snow from roofs (occupation of sidewalk and street while so doing), annual 
permit, $1 each.

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. By Feb. 1, 1921, all of the loan appro- 
priations had been expended plus $20,980 from a new appropriation of 
$300,000 (from general revenue instead of loan) for installation of 
pumping machinery. The work completed, including the old salt- 
water fireboat line installed in 1898, comprises 10.68 miles of pipe with 
289 hydrants ready 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 
expected to be ready in 1921.

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, 1921, 
was 977 miles, 7.09 miles having been added in 1920, and the gross City 
debt outstanding for all sewer construction up to said date was $21,978,660. 

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, S| 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, 1921, there were 66.6 miles of Metropolitan sewer in the 
North District, of which 10.4 miles were in Boston, and 50.9 miles in the 
South District, 24.0 miles being in Boston. Tributary to the two Metro- 
politan systems there were 1,460 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 1920 amounted to 412,807 tons (of 2,000 lbs) or 6,506 tons more than 
in 1919, of which 347,659 tons were ashes, 59,507 tons garbage and 5,641 
tons waste and rubbish (mostly paper). Contractors collected 159,209 
tons and City employees, aided by hired teaming, collected 253,598 tons.

REMOVAL OF STORE REFUSE. 

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

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 all pipes and other fixtures and appliances held by 
the City for the purposes of its water supply, including the laying and 
relaying of pipes, the installation and testing of meters and the placing of 
public drinking fountains, also the assessing of water rates and issuing 
of the bills therefor. 

The total length of supply and distributing water mains on February 1, 
1921, was 878.67 miles; number of services actually in use, 93,718 (on 
January 1), of which about 75 per cent were metered; number of public 
fire hydrants, 9,779; number of public drinking fountains, 155, of which 87 
are fitted with hygienic bubble fixtures and 68 are for animals only. 

The first water document published by the City of Boston appeared 
in 1825. The public introduction of water from Lake Cochituate took 
place on October 25, 1848. The history of the Boston Water Works up 
to January 1, 1868, has been written by Nathaniel J. Bradlee; from 1868 
to 1876, by 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 abolished and the Water Department created, a single commissioner 
being entrusted with all the powers previously exercised by the Boston 
Water Board and the Boston Water Registrar. 

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

water system lying westward of Chestnut Hill Reservoir, also the pumping 
station there, with adjacent lands. The sum paid to the City was 
$12,531,000. Payments to the State by the City for its supply of water 
have been regularly made since 1898. Total quantity of water in the ten 
storage reservoirs of the Metropolitan system on January 1, 1921, 
77,0S2,200,000 gallons, of which 82 per cent was in the Wachusett Reservoir 
in Clinton, 32 miles west of Boston, an artificial lake 4,135 acres in surface 
area and added to the system in 1905. There are also twelve distribution 
reservoirs with capacity of 2,399,230,000 gallons, five pumping-stations 
being connected with these, in which stations 32,644,780,000 gallons of 
water were pumped during the year 1920. In the existing Metropolitan 
Water District are nine cities, besides Boston, and nine towns. Boston 
takes about 75 per cent of the entire water supply of the District. 

The daily average amount of water used in 1920 was 94,297,400 gallons, 
or 125 gallons per capita. This was 4,645,000 gallons more daily, than 
in 1919.

This department, which was established by Chapter 473 of the Acts 
of 1901 (amended by Chapter 376 of the Acts of 1904), is in charge of a 
board of three commissioners, appointed by the Mayor. One com- 
missioner is appointed in each year for a term of three years, beginning 
with June 1 in the year of appointment. The salaries of the commis- 
sioners and the ordinary expenses of the department are met by appro- 
priations of the School Committee. 4 

The authority and duties of the Board are those formerly conferred 
and imposed upon the City Council and the School Committee in relation 
to selecting lands for school purposes and requesting the Street Com- 
missioners to take the same, providing temporary school accommodations, 
and making, altering and approving designs and plans for school purposes; 
erecting, completing, altering, repairing, furnishing, and preparing yards 
for, school buildings, and making contracts and selecting architects for 
doing said work. 

The Board is required to take measures to secure proper ventilation, 
proper sanitary conditions, and protection from fire, for existing school 
buildings. Annual reports to the Mayor have been made since 1901, an 
interesting feature of which is the "Descriptive Schedule of Permanent 
School Buildings," a large tabular insert showing, under 14 headings, 
building statistics of 270 or more schoolhouses.

The Board of Commissioners of Sinking Funds for the payment or 
redemption of the City debt was established by Ordinance on December 
24, 1870. This Board consists of six members, two of whom are appointed 
annually by the Mayor for a term of three years from May 1. The Board 
has published annual reports since 1871. The amended City Charter, 
Section 26, prohibits the further establishing of sinking funds, but an 
exception was afterwards made by the Legislature regarding loans for 
Rapid Transit purposes. It also prohibits the depositing of City or 
County money in any bank of which any member of the Board of Sinking 
Funds Commissioners is an officer, director or agent.

mation to the City departments and to the public on request. Up to 1914, 
the department published two series of Special Publications, one on Extraor- 
dinary Receipts and Expenditures, the other on Ordinary, the latter issued 
annually with detail tables covering the last five fiscal years, also a Bulletin 
of municipal statistics, issued quarterly, with tables arranged by months, 
containing 40 to 48 quarto pages. A selection of such statistical material 
as has appeared hitherto in those publications will eventually be brought 
together in a municipal Year Book. The Municipal Register (containing 
340 to 350 pages of information about Boston's civic activities, history, 
etc.), is compiled and edited annually by the department and the annual 
document of the City Council, "Organization of the City Government of 
Boston," for 1921 contains 75 pages of the latest statistics contributed by 
the department, mostly relating to Boston but including other information 
of general interest. The latter are also published as a separate document.

January. The Board has power to lay out, relocate, alter or discontinue 
highways in the City, and to order specific repairs thereon, also to order, 
with the approval of the Mayor, the construction of sewers and to take 
for the City any lands, water courses and ways deemed necessary for 
such construction. It levies the betterment assessments on estates bene- 
fited by the construction of new sewers and new or improved highways 
(see Chapter 536, Acts of 1913), also awards damages for takings of land, 
and grants to landowners permission to open private streets. In 1895 
the duties of the Board of Survey were transferred to the Street Com- 
missioners; in 1907 they were charged with the licensing of street stands 
for the sale of merchandise, in 1908 with the regulation of street traffic, 
and in 1913 with the authority to grant or withhold permits for the erec- 
tion of automobile garages. 

By the Amended City Charter of 1909, the jurisdiction previously 
exercised by the Board of Aldermen is vested in the Street Commissioners, 
with the written approval of the Mayor, as to the naming of streets, as 
to trees in the streets, as to permits or licenses for special use of same, 
including the construction of coal holes, vaults, bay windows and mar- 
quees, in, under, or over the streets, also for the location of conduits, poles 
and posts and the storage of inflammables and explosives. 

As authorized by Chapter 680, Acts of 1913, the Street Commissioners 
issued on April 9, 1914, their "Rules and Regulations Relating to Projec- 
tions on or over Public Highways." These rules were amended in 1915, 
as authorized by Chapter 176, General Acts of that year, the changes 
taking effect July 20. The penalty for disregard of said rules is a fine not 
exceeding five dollars for each day of negligence after five days' notice. 

Fees for permits and each annual renewal thereof are fixed as follows: 

Illuminated signs $1 00 

Two-foot projecting signs (not illuminated) 60 

Other projecting signs (not illuminated) 25 

Lettering on awnings 50

Traffic Rules. 
As provided by Chapter 447, Acts of 1908, the Street Commissioners 
were authorized to make such regulations as they deemed needful to 
prevent the increasing congestion and delay of traffic in the streets. New 
traffic rules were promulgated in December, 1908, and went into effect 
January 1, 1909. The latest revision of same was issued June 22, 1920. 
The rules are enforced by the Police Commissioner, and the penalty for 
violation is a fine not exceeding twenty dollars for each offence.

Commission was further extended to July 1, 1909; by Stat. 1909, Chap. 455, 

* This commission's existence terminated July 1, 1918, as ordered by Chapter 368,

Chap. 644, to July 1, 1917, and by Stat. 1917, Chap. 368 (Special), to July 
1, 1918. 

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 amounted 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 Scollay 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. 
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 
expenditure therefor, to February 1, 1920, was $5,435,639. That part of 
the Dorchester tunnel between Park street station and South Station 
was opened to public use on December 4, 1916; as far as Broadway, South 
Boston, on December 15, 1917, and to Andrew Square terminal on June 29, 
1918. The loans issued for Dorchester tunnel construction up to February 1, 
1920, amounted to $10,750,000. Total approximate cost of subways and 
tunnels, $36,000,000, all payable ultimately from revenue. Gross Rapid

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

previously conferred or imposed by law on the Board of Police relative 
to the licensing of picnic groves, skating rinks, intelligence offices, billiard 
tables and bowling alleys.

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

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

Dr. Franklin, who died April 17, 1790, calculated that, in one hundred 
years, the thousand pounds would grow to £131,000, "of which," he says, 
"I would have the managers then lay out at their discretion £100,000 

*The Managers serve without compensation.

in Public Works which, may be judged of most general utility to the 
Inhabitants. The remaining £31,000, I would have continued to be let 
out on interest for another hundred years. At the end of this second 
term, if no unfortunate accident has prevented the operation, the sum 
will be £4,081,000, 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 Franklin 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 he "Selectmen," 
$329,300.48 (£§?- 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 complications 
the money remained in the custody of the Treasurer. Mayor Collins, 
in 1902, caused a petition of the City to be filed in he 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 Franklin 
Fund in August, 1904, which Mr. Carnegie agreed to duplicate. Only the 
annual income from this und 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 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 tuition fees, rents, etc. ($137,700 total in year 1920), 
and by the income ($22,420 in .year 1920) from the above mentioned 
Franklin Fund (i. e., the Andrew Carnegie Donation), which amounted to 
$460,478 on January 31, 1921. The building contains 24 classrooms and 
6 draughting rooms, where about 1,600 students receive instruction, the 
fees ranging from $4 to $15, according to length of course. There is also 
a technical and scientific library, and a large hall with a seating capacity 
of 1,000 for lectures, concerts, discussions and similar purposes. The 
building with equipment cost $402,718. The site was purchased in 1906 
for $100,000.

The Board of Police for the City of Boston was established by Chapter 
323 of the Acts of 1885, and was composed of three citizens of Boston, 
appointed for five years from the two principal political parties by the 
Governor, with the advice and consent of the Executive Council. The 
Board assumed office on July 23, 1885. By Chapter 291 of the Acts of 
1906, the department was placed in charge of a single head, to be known 
as the Police Commissioner. 

The powers of the Board of Police, except those relating to the grant- 
ing of intelligence office, bilhard and pool, skating rink, picnic grove, 
bowling alley, common victualers' and liquor licenses, which were trans- 
ferred to the newly created Licensing Board, devolve upon the Police 
Commissioner. 

The City is divided into nineteen Police 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 police 
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 
Police Commissioner as to the annual fisting of resident men, 20 years of 



134 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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. 

By Chapter 114, Acts of 1921 , the annual listing now includes all women 
20 years of age and over, in addition to the men. Printed copies of the 
list, by precincts, should be ready for the Election Commissioners by 
July 1. 

On December 1, 1920, the police force numbered 1,846 men, including 
28 captains, 30 inspectors, 41 lieutenants, 131 sergeants and 1,614 patrol- 
men, of which 1,480 were distributed in 19 divisions, and 134 detailed for 
traffic control. There were 18 men in the signal service, whose director 
has charge of 504 signal boxes. In the calendar year 1920 the number of 
persons arrested was 61,014 or 3,356 less than in 1919, and 29,366 less 
than in 1918, this notable decrease being due chiefly to the scarcity of 
intoxicating liquors under Federal prohibition and the resulting restriction 
of drunkenness. Of all arrests, 22,174 (i. e. 36.3 per cent) were for drunk- 
enness; non-residents arrested, 19,436 or 31.8 per cent; foreign-born 
persons, 21,633; women and girls, all ages, 4,406; boys under 15 years of 
age, 1,722. In year ending November 30, 1920, persons imprisoned, 
1,952; persons fined, 15,791, the fines amounting to $154,767; stolen 
property recovered, $1,402,881; licenses granted, 21,481 (including 8,501 
for dogs and 8,688 for vehicles and drivers), for which $64,385 was received. 
Prosecutions for violation of automobile laws, 10,408 (i.e. 4,810 more than 
in 1919), of which 5,141 were of non-residents and 1,005 of minors; for 
larceny and robbery, 3,029; assault, etc., 1,930; gambling, etc., 3,234; 
violation of street traffic regulations, etc., 2,318; burglary, 565; violation 
of Sunday law, 332. Reports of accidents in streets and parks show 
141 killed and 3,642 injured. There were 5,102 sick and injured persons 
assisted, 424 insane persons taken in charge and 1,939 lost children restored 
to their homes. During the year 1,741 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 2,793 applications for license to carry loaded revolvers in 1920, 2,481 
were granted and 312 rejected. 

Salaries: Captains, $3,500 per annum; 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 faculties in the 
buildings, yards and playgrounds under their control, also to make similar 
use of all such facilities in charge of the Park Commissioners as the 
latter, with the Mayor's approval, might deem suitable. 

The sum available for this branch of education is ten cents on each 
$1,000 of the City's assessed valuation, the appropriation for 1920-21 
being $149,034. 

There are now a director, fourteen instructors and ten assistant in- 
structors of physical training, also 149 playground teachers, the latter 
having charge of games, gymnastics, etc., in the 36 schoolyard playgrounds 
and 54 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 public schools. Under this 



DEPARTMENT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 145 

arrangement the School Committee is reimbursed by the State to the 
extent of one half the net maintenance cost of such industrial schools 
established in Boston thus far with the approval of the State Board of 
Education. By Chapter 805, Acts of 1913, Continuation Schools, for 
employed children between fourteen and sixteen years of age, were included 
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 1920-21 the amount received from the State 
for this purpose was $105,580. 

In addition to the regular term, the day industrial schools are in session 
for a summer term from July 5 to the last Friday in August, inclusive. 
The summer term of the co-operative agricultural courses begins on the 
day next following the close of the regular day schools in June, continuing 
until their reopening in September.

SUMMER 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 1920 was 4,194, or 
3,833 in the elementary schools and 361 in the high school, with 136 
teachers attending. Of the elementary school pupils, 84.54 per cent won 
promotion in 1920. 

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 1920-21 amounted to $29,807. 
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 every year. Nine more have since been opened, viz., in 
Michael Angelo schoolhouse, North End; in Bowdoin, William Blackstone 
and Washington schoolhouses, West End; in the Dorchester High and 
Edward Everett schoolhouses; in the Practical Arts High, Abraham 
Lincoln and Sarah Greenwood schoolhouses. A variety of social and study 
clubs, lectures, concerts and other entertainments are included in these 
activities which engage the services of 152 paid leaders and other workers, 
also many volunteer assistants. The centers remain in session from the 
first Wednesday in October to June 30 on three evenings and one or more 
afternoons 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. Persons attending the various meetings and entertainments 
in nine months ending June 30, 1920, numbered 463,894. 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 schoolhouses 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 



DEPARTMENT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 



149 



incapacitated for further efficient service. If the teacher retired has been 
employed in the public day schools for a period of thirty years or more, ten 
years of which has been in Boston, the pension paid amounts to one-third 
of the annual salary received at time of retirement, but in no case is it less 
than $312 nor more than $600 annually. If the period of service is less 
than thirty years, the pension is proportionally less. The School Com- 
mittee 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 Permanent School Pension 
Fund amounted to $380,516 on February 1, 1921, 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 sum; to five others, 
the total amount of its fund on February 1, 1921, being $665,568. At .hat 
date 2,760 teachers were each contributing $18 per year to this fund.

of the Ordinances of 1917, is hereby further amended by striking out in 
the twenty-eighth and twenty-ninth fines the words "grass, garden refuse, 
leaves," so that the said section, as amended, shall read as follows: 

Section 1. The department of public works shall be under the charge

all sewer systems under the control of the city and the catch-basins in the 
streets connected with the sewers; shall keep the streets properly watered; 
shall remove and dispose of, at the expense of the public works depart- 
ment, all refuse from buildings occupied by the city except those under the 
control of the school committee; shall remove and dispose of the following 
classes of refuse from dwelling houses and from housekeeping apartments 
or tenements, when it is placed in yards or areas so as to be easily removed, 
free of charge to the producers of such refuse and to the owners and occu- 
pants of such dwelling houses, apartments and tenements, viz., swill and

thereof to the city of such compensation as the commissioner shall from 
time to time prescribe. The commissioner shall, on the fifteenth day of 
each month, send to the city auditor detailed bills of all material, tools and 
machinery furnished by either of the divisions of the department to any 
other division or for any special work. [Approved April 27, 1921 . 



CHAPTER 4. 

Concerning the Salary of the Budget Commissioner. 
Section five of chapter three of the Revised Ordinances of 1914, as 
amended by chapter three of the Ordinances of 1917, is hereby amended 
in the clause establishing the salary of the budget commissioner by striking 
out the words "five thousand" and inserting in place thereof the words 
"six thousand." [Approved May 4, 1921. 



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; Stat. 1920, Chap. 455.] 
By Stat. 1904, Chap. 333, the Legislature provided that the City of 
Boston should be divided into two districts, designated as Districts A and 



190 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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

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 Building Commissioner, who filed their order in the Registry of Deeds 
on November 2, 1916, to remain in force for ten years, and superseding 
the order of 1904 as to the boundaries of Districts A and B. [See Docu- 
ment 114, 1916.] > 

District A. The boundaries newly established 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 
through Saratoga st. to Neptune rd., Eagle sq., Eagle, Glendon and 
Condor sts. to Meridian st., thence southerly through Meridian, Gove, 
Orleans and Marginal sts. to Jeffries st. (Ward 2), thence northeasterly 
to Maverick st. and through same to the B., R. B. & L. R.R., thence 
along latter to the center of Porter st. extended, thence through Porter, 
Bremen and Prescott sts. to the B., R. B. & L. R.R., thence along said 
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. 

The boundaries in Charlestown begin at the Maiden Bridge (Ward 3), 
thence extend southerly through Alford st. to Sullivan 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 line, thence along said line and 



REGULATION OF THE HEIGHT OF BUILDINGS. 191 

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 
line 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 Columbus 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 lines 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 lies within the described area, and also that portion of all 
lots on the opposite side of the street, abutting on the street, but extending 
to a depth of not more than 150 feet. 

District B comprises all territory in the City outside the boundaries 
above described. In this district buildings may in general be erected to 
a height of not more than 80 feet, but on streets exceeding 64 feet in width 
the height may be equal to one and a quarter times the width of the widest 
street upon which the building stands, said height to be measured from the 
mean grade of the curbs of all streets upon which the building is situated 
and not to exceed in any event 100 feet above such point of measurement. 
On all streets or portions of streets upon which buildings may be erected 
on one side only, the buildings may be erected to a height of 100 feet. No 
building may be erected to a height greater than 80 feet unless its width 
on each and every public street upon which it stands be at least one-half 
its height. Certain special exceptions to the general regulations affecting 
District B have been made as follows: 

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



192 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 public way 
on which a building line has been established by the Board of Park Com- 
missioners or by the Board of Street Commissioners acting under any 
general or special statute, to a greater height than that allowed by the order 
of said Boards. 

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, skylights, ventilators, flagstaffs, railings, weather vanes, soil 
pipes, steam exhausts, signs, roof houses not exceeding 12 feet square 
and 12 feet high, nor to other similar constructions such as are usually 
erected above the roof line of buildings, nor to sugar refineries in District A. 

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

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

By Chapter 786, Acts of 1914, the parcel of land bounded by Wash- 
ington st., Lovering place, Harrison ave. and Asylum st. was exempted 
from the laws relative to the height of buildings which might be erected 
thereon, except that the limit of 125 feet remained in force. 

Certain parties being 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, skylights, etc., above the roof 
line, used to enclose elevator shafts, an additional space of four feet on 



CITY RECORD. 193 

all sides (or 16 feet square in all), but not to exceed 12 feet in height. 
All 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 solid metal lath and plaster 
walls may be used, the door to be of metal frame and covered with metal. 

By Chap. 455, Acts of 1920, this limitation law does not apply to the 
parcel of land containing about 21,240 feet, which is bounded southerly 
by Stuart st. 236 feet, westerly by Dartmouth st. 90 feet, northerly by 
location of Copley Plaza Hotel 236 feet, and easterly by Trinity place 
90 feet. 



CITY RECORD. 
[Stat. 1909, Chap. 486, §§ 29, 30.] 

In accordance with the Amended City Charter of 1909, the weekly 
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 first issue appeared on August 14 following, publication 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. 



194 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

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 
publication the City has had the benefit of cheaper advertising space, 
besides diverting to one of its departments $16,000 to $18,000 a year that 
would otherwise be paid to outside publications. 

In 1920 the income from advertising amounted to $17,823 or 54.87 per 
cent increase over that of 1919, while the total for subscriptions and sales 
increased to $990. Printing Dept. costs also increased in 1920 or to 
$23,721.

Twenty-Six Wards 

ESTABLISHED IN 1915. 



196 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 still remaining twelve. Subsequent changes 
of ward boundaries were made in 1838, 1850, 1865, 1875, 1895 and lastly, 
that which was enacted December 28, 1914. In 1865 nine wards were 
added to provide for the annexed districts, in 1875 * and 1876 * the number 
was increased to 25 and in 1912 another annexation, viz.: Hyde Park, 
brought the total to 26. In 1885 an attempt was made by the City Coun- 
cil to make a new division of wards, and an ordinance to that effect was 
prepared by a special committee appointed for the purpose, passed by 
the City Council and approved by the Mayor. 1 Certain questions were 
raised, however, in the General Court of 1886, relative to establishing 
State, senatorial and representative districts, and as to whether such dis- 
tricts should be established according to the territorial boundaries of cities 
and towns and their wards as they existed on the first day of May, 1885, 
or whether new ward lines, as in the case of the City of Boston, should 
be followed. On May 21, 1886, the opinion of the Justices of the Supreme 
Judicial Court was asked by the Legislature on this matter, and they 
decided that the district divisions referred to must be made according to 
territorial and other boundaries existing on the first day of May, 1885, and 
that the new ward divisions were illegal. 2 On account of this opinion 
of the Justices of the Supreme Judicial Court, an act was passed by the 
Legislature in June, 1886, 3 which provided that the several wards, pre- 
cincts, and assessment districts of the several cities of the Commonwealth, 
existing May 1, 1885, should be established as the wards, precincts, and 
assessment districts of said cities, any acts or ordinances of the city coun- 
cils of said cities to the contrary notwithstanding. The new division of 
wards was thus set aside and the ward lines established in 1875 remained 
in effect until they were changed in 1895 and established under the pro- 

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

visions of Chapter 417 of the Acts of 1893. According to this act, a city 
may be redivided into wards in every tenth year after 1895, but this is 
not mandatory. In 1905 a new division of the City was attempted by 
the City Council, 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. 

WARD BOUNDARIES. 



Throughout the following descriptions the term "intersection" of 
streets, railroad locations, bridges, or the like, shall mean the intersection 
of middle lines unless otherwise clearly appearing; the phrase "through" 
or "to" a street, bridge, railroad location, or the like, shall mean through 
or to middle lines unless otherwise clearly appearing; and where (if at all) 
lines are mentioned as meeting or intersecting which do not technically 
meet or intersect, it shall be intended that such lines shall be extended for 
the purposes of these descriptions until they do so meet or intersect. 
The words "shore line of the City of Boston" shall mean the line beyond

VOTING PRECINCTS. 



New Division of Wards into 274 Precincts by Election Commis- 
sioners. 
In accordance with Chap. 636, Acts of 1920 (Extra Session) the Election 
Commissioners made a new division of the 26 wards into 274 voting pre- 
cincts (for boundaries see their document dated March 28, 1921) or an 
addition of 53 precincts to the number existing in 1920. This increase 
was made necessary by the addition of women voters to the electorate, as 
provided by the 19th Amendment to U. S. Constitution, ratified in 1920.

Note.— According to Chap. 636, Acts of 1920 (Extra Session) all 
voting precincts should contain an equal number of voters, and not more 
than 1,000 in any precinct. In November, 1920, there were 66 precincts 
with more than 1,000 registered voters; 35 precincts with over 1,100; 18 
with over 1,200; 9 with over 1,300 and 6 with over 1,400, these excesses 
due to the addition of 70,298 women voters to the registration.

Justices of the Police, Justices' and Municipal Courts. 

The Police Court of the City of Boston was established in 1822, and at 
the same time the Justices' Court for the County of Suffolk (civil business) 
was established. The duties of the Justices' Court were discharged by 
the Justices of the Police Court. The jurisdiction of the Justices' Court was 
transferred to the Police Court for civil business June 1, 1860. In 1866 
this court was succeeded by the Municipal Court of the, City of Boston.

STATISTICS 

OF 

Population and Area. 



224 municipal register. 

Enumerated Population of Boston, 

U. S. Census, January i, 1920, 

748,060. 

Estimated population of boston, 

JULY 1, 1921, 
821,907. 



According to the U. S. Census Bureau the population of Boston on 
January 1, 1920, was 748,060, an increase of 77,475 or 11.55 per cent 
since April 15, 1910, when it was 670,585 (Federal Census); and of only 
2,621, or 0.35 per cent, over the enumeration of the State Census, April 
1, 1915, viz., 745,439. Of the said increase (viz., 77,475) 15,936 was due 
to the annexation of Hyde Park in 1912, leaving but 61,539 or 9.18 per 
cent as the normal gain for the 10 years, as compared with 109,693 or 
19.56 per cent for the preceding 10 years. Such an unaccountable decline 
in Boston's habitual rate of growth, which has shown an average increase 
of 23.1 per cent for every 10 years from 1870 to 1910 inclusive, cannot be 
explained by any of the observed and recorded changes in the movement 
of population during the last decade. Hence, the 1920 census figures are 
regarded as incredible and have not been accepted by the City Govern- 
ment as correct or approximately correct. 

The reasons for this adverse judgment regarding the Federal Census of 
1920 are based upon a careful investigation undertaken by the Statistics 
Department in July and August, 1920. The evidence then and since 
ascertained has been partly corroborated by other investigators and is 
summed up as follows: 

1. The records of the Boston Health Dept. show that the excess of 
births over deaths of natives, fiom 1910 to 1919, inclusive, numbered 
110,298, total births being 185,958 and total deaths (i. e., native born alone) 
75,660, exclusive of all non-residents. This natural increase alone brought 
the 1910 population (i. e., 670,585) up to 780,883 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 increased 
total (i. e., 780,883), brings the new total up to 805,672. 

3. By the annexation of Hyde Park in 1912 the addition to the popula- 
tion was 15,936, of which 4,601 were foreign born and included in the 
increase (i. s., 24,789) above stated. Hence the native-born accession, or 
] 1,335, should be added, making a total of 817,007. 

4. The number of deaths of foreign-born residents in the five years 
1915-1920, viz., 22,474, should be deducted from the last-named total 



POPULATION OF BOSTON, 1920. 225 

(i. e., 817,007), leaving the final aggregate ascertainable by official records, 
794,533. This result is nowise estimated. All the figures given are as 
reliable as those of any census. 

5. According to the statistics of the U. S. Immigration Office, the 
number of immigrant aliens coming to Massachusetts in the 5 years 
1915-1919 inclusive was 108,948; of emigrant aliens departing, 43,420; 
number remaining, 65,528, of which 12.72 per cent were presumably resi- 
dents of Boston. This computation is based upon the record of the pre- 
ceding 5 years as verified by the 1915 State Census of foreign-born inhabi- 
tants. Hence the small foreign-born accession of 8,335 (i. e., 12.72 per cent 
of 65,528) remains to be added to the population total last stated (viz., 
794,533), giving an aggregate of 802,868. This result is fairly beyond dis- 
pute, judging from all the facts thus far brought to light, differing but 
slightly from that worked out a year ago in this chapter when the evidence 
was less. 

The Director of the U. S. Census Bureau, replying to Mayor Peters 
request of Oct. 25, 1920, for a correct census of Boston, claimed that the 
evidence presented by the Mayor did not discredit the accuracy of the 
January count and refused to undertake a recount unless the City agreed 
to defray the expense. This attitude was probably consistent with official 
custom, nevertheless the evidence then furnished, when reinforced by 
that contained herein, shows that the U. S. Census, as of Jan. 1, 1920, fell 
short of the actual population total by 54,808. No reliable evidence has 
been found to disprove this conclusion. 

The only evidence that might, if obtainable, reduce the said discrepancy 
refers to a possible excess of departures from, over arrivals in, Boston 
from 1915 to 1919 inclusive, viz., of other than immigrant aliens and emi- 
grant aliens already accounted for above. The considerable number of 
adult residents who left Boston on account 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, as of April 
1, 1920. Instead of any decrease, there was a net increase of 15,980 
in the Police List from 1915 to 1920, or from 222,951 to 238,931. The 
net increase of 13,391 in excess of births is another offset. 

Now comparing the insignificant 0.35, the Census Bureau's per cent of 
increase from 1915 to 1920, with the per cent of increase shown by 
municipal department records for the same period, the contrast stands 
thus: — Police List, +7.30%; pupils in public day schools, +7.04%; native- 
born persons (i. e., total births minus all deaths of native born) +7.72% of 
total 1915 population. Here are three consistent percentages, the average 
of which is 21 times that of the Census Bureau's 0.35. The absolute 
number corresponding to the said percentage of increase being 2,621, the 
latter multiplied by 21 gives 55,041 as the shortage in the enumeration of 
1920, varying but little from the total reached by the foregoing computa- 
tion, viz., 54,808. 

The only basis upon which to sustain the Census Bureau's published 
figures for Boston (viz., 748,060) is to arbitrarily assume that there occurred 



226 



MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 



in the five years 1915-1919 an unprecedented exodus of about 55,000 
persons from the city limits to parts unknown, said number being over 
and above the many thousands of old residents returning and new-comers 
arriving during the same period. The evidence is all against that assump- 
tion, as above shown, yet the Director of the Census stamped the latter 
with his official approval, unwilling to acknowledge defective work. 

Boston, unlike most American cities, was fortunate in having a thorough 
and reliable State census in 1915, handled by a trained and experienced 
director and inspectors competent to detect and correct the deficiencies of 
canvassers unfit for the exacting work. The local supervisor of the 1920 cen- 
sus had no such trained organization whereby to meet the requirements. The 
results of this 1915 census were alone sufficient to discredit those of the 1920 
census. It showed very nearly as much increase of population in five years 
(viz., 11.16 per cent, 1910-1915) as the latter showed for ten years (viz., 
11.55 per cent, 1910-1920), surely a fact too significant to ignore. 

Although it remains true that quality, not quantity of population deter- 
mines the real character and standing of a city, there are various signs of 
progress that demand to be included in a comprehensive estimate of such a 
metropolis as Boston. A normal growth of the population is such a sign 
of progress. A notably sub-normal growth (aside from loss in immigra- 
tion) indicates some internal failure in social and economic conditions. 
Hence it could but be detrimental to the interests of Boston to allow this 
serious mistake of the U. S. Census Bureau to go uncorrected.

$14,129,825 or 50.08 per cent; the special appropriations (i. e., from Tax 
Levy, etc.) increased $2,695,597 or 185.04 per cent, of which $1,870,438 
or 128.40 per cent was due to the unprecedented demands of the School 
Committee. Until recently their demands for land and new buildings for 
schools were mostly met by loans.

5-year comparative table, with per cent of each department's allow- 
ance to the whole budget, see pages 244 and 245. 

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, County and Schools. 

The separate tax limit for all School purposes in 1920 was $8.15 on each 
$1,000 of valuation and in 1921 this was increased to $9.11, making the 
total available for appropriations from taxes, etc., by School Committee, 
$13,905,194. This is an increase of 102 per cent over the tax limit for 
Schools in 1916. 

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 



306 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

following made the limit $11 for 1921 (see Chap. 401). The amount thus 
made available for the 1921 appropriations was $1,111,615 more than in 
1920. 

BOSTON FUNDED DEBT, 1921, ETC. 

Gross funded debt, February 1, 1921, (as shown by Auditor's Report 
for 1920-21, p. 10), $124,112,351 (including $360,000 issued by State for 
enlargement of Court House); sinking funds, $43,429,503; other re- 
demption means, $1,302,923; net debt, $79,379,925, of which $46,548,964 
(i. e. 58.64 per cent) was City debt; $31,175,990 (i. e. 39.28 per cent) 
Rapid Transit debt (the latter representing a 4| per cent investment, 
the revenue from which covers the debt requirements), and $1,340,971 
(i. e. 1.69 per cent) County debt. There was also a small remainder 
of serial Water debt, viz., $314,000 for Hyde Park Water Works, the 
Cochituate Water debt having been amortized in 1915. 

Net debt per capita (estimated population, 816,573 on Feb. 1), $97.21; 
net debt exclusive of Rapid Transit debt, $48,203,936, or $59.03 per 
capita, which is $15.44 less per capita than in 1916. Loans authorized 
but not issued (within debt limit), $1,352,500; same outside of debt limit, 
$3,121,000; debt incurring power (within debt limit) estimated for year 
1921-22, $4,451,821. 

In the fiscal year 1920-21, the net City debt was reduced by $1,780,682, 
the net Rapid Transit debt increased by $418,574, the net County debt 
decreased by $144,364 and the net Water debt by $22,000. 

Total debt contracted, $2,845,000; total debt paid, $3,142,750; total 
decrease of gross debt, $297,750; of net debt, $1,528,472. Decrease of net 
debt in 1918, 1919 and 1920, or 3-year period, $5,190,252. No such re- 
duction on record before, the larger debt payments in 1900 and 1901 being 
due to sale of municipal property to the State. 

Total debt incurred in the ten years, 1911 to 1920 inch, $50,002,867, 
of which $19,600,000, or 39.2 per cent was Rapid Transit debt. 

Total amount of debt incurred by the City in the 98 years since its 
incorporation (in 1822), $262,169,437, of which 87.82 per cent belongs to the 
last 50 years; 55.84 per cent to the last 25 years; 19.07 per cent to the last 
10 years. From 1822 to 1870 the amount borrowed was $31,916,010 or a 
yearly average of $664,917. From 1870 to 1920 the total borrowed was 
$230,253,427 or a yearly average of $4,605,068. The maximum for a 10- 
year period was from 1896 to 1905, when the yearly average was $7,188,493. 

LOANS, BY OBJECTS, IN YEAR 1920-21. 
Total amount borrowed, $2,845,000 or $365,500 less than in 1919-20. 
Objects and amount for each; Sewerage Works, $800,000; Rapid Transit, 
Arlington Station, $595,000; Making of Highways, $400,000; East Boston

Rates: $959,000 at U per cent, $1,886,000 at 5 per cent. Outside debt 
limit, $6.55,000 (Rapid Transit); all others, serial loans inside debt limit. 

In only one year since 1891-92 was the total of debt contracted as 
small as that of 1920-1921, viz., in 1918-19. The yearly average for the 
10 years prior to 1920 was $5,210,003, or 83.13 per cent in excess of the 
1920 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 limit) was $3,990,741 for the four years 
1917-20, or $1,413,942 less than the same in the years, 1910-16.

$8,687,362. 

HOW THE CITY DOLLAR WAS SPENT IN YEAR 1920-21. 

For Public Schools, $0.23 cents (if the total amount appropriated had 
been expended, the correct figure would be 0.262); Public Works, 0.176; 
State Tax and Assessments, 0.133; Debt Requirements, 0.12; Police Dept., 
0.08; Fire Dept., 0.07; Institutions and Poor Relief, 0.039; Hospitals and 
Health, 0.038; General Government, 0.037; County Courts, etc., 0.037;

cents. This excludes all expenditures from loans, etc., but includes 
Special Appropriations from Tax Levy and other General Income. 

The revenue of the departments amounted to 16 per cent of their gross 
expenditures. The revenue of Public Service Enterprises alone (includ- 
ing Water Service, Markets, etc.) amounted to $3,997,166 or $2,°4,117 
more than their total expenditures. The fractions of the dollar above 
stated represent net expenditure, computed after deducting department 
revenue. 

Revenue from another class of public service enterprise, i. e., Rapid 
Transit subways and tunnels, $1,446,516.75 or $19,979.55 more than the 
interest and sinking-fund requirements of the Rapid Transit debt in 1920. 

PUBLIC IMPROVEMENTS FINANCED FROM GENERAL; 
INCOME INSTEAD OF LOANS. 
In the five fiscal years, 1916 to 1920, inclusive, the total expenditures 
from General Income for various improvements (such as were formerly 
financed from loans) amounted to $10,012,613, or $5,588,187 for streets 
sidewalks, and bridges; $3,215,147 for new schoolhouses, etc., $526,501, 
for parks, playgrounds, etc., and $682,778 for other objects. 

BOSTON'S SHARE OF METROPOLITAN NET DEBT, ETC., 1920. 

Boston's liability for the State's Contingent Debt, i. e., the debt incurred 

for Metropolitan parks, sewers, water, etc., was $31,092,194 on July 1, 



310 MUNICIPAL REGISTER. 

1920, or $969,266 less than in 1919. It is divided thus: Water debt, $19,- 
770,126; park debt, $4,794,598; sewer debt, $4,395,636; Charles River 
Basin debt, $2,131,834. The percentages paid by Boston are 74.8893 on 
water debt: 59.89079 on most of the park debt; 47.57 on most of the 
sewer debt, and on Charles River Basin debt the same as on park debt. 

Metropolitan assessments paid by Boston in 1920 amounted to $3,423,- . 
927, of which two-thirds was for debt requirements and one-third for 
maintenance. Water assessment, $1,885,925 (paid from water revenue) 
park, $884,913; sewer, $421,303; Charles River Basin, etc., $231,786. 

INCREASE OF PUBLIC DEBT IN LEADING CITIES, 1909-1919 
(RANKING FROM HIGHEST). 

The net debt in the 10-year period increased as follows: (1) San Fran- 
cisco, $32,467,022 or 307.24 per cent; (2) Detroit, $17,173,184 or 188.41 . 
per cent; (3) Cleveland, $40,746,085 or 126.28 per cent; (4) Buffalo, 
$18,339,700 or 92.18 per cent; (5) Baltimore, $29,196,115 or 80.36 per 
cent; (6) Philadelphia, $56,924,973 or 67.10 per cent; (7) New York, 
$401,064,232 or 65.94 per cent; (8) Pittsburgh, $14,514,966 or 37.77 per 
cent; (9) Boston, $11,275,726 or 15.50 per cent. (See U. S. Census 
Bureau's Financial Statistics of Cities, 1909 and 1919.) 

All of Boston's increase was Rapid Transit debt, representing a 4| per 
cent investment. Omitting this, there was a decrease of $5,651,837 or 
9.61 per cent in Boston's net debt during the period stated. 

NET DEBT PER CAPITA IN LEADING CITIES, 1919 (BY RANK). 

New York, $183.87; Cincinnati, $169.13; New Orleans, $117.56; Bos- 
ton, $113.72 (i. e. with population wrongly estimated at 738,901. Should 
be $106.39 with population estimated at 789,817 on Feb. 1, 1919); Balti- 
more, $100.54; Cleveland, $95.75; Pittsburgh, $91.44; Los Angeles, 
$87.61; San Francisco, $86.24; Philadelphia, $79.60. Figures are approxi- 
mate, as population had to be estimated. (See U. S. Census Bureau's 
Financial Statistics of Cities, 1919, page 297.) 

The per capita figures are high for New York, Boston and Cincinnati, 
as compared with other cities, because of their extensive investments in 
public service enterprises. Boston's debt for subways and tunnels being 
38 per cent of the whole debt and the interest and sinking-fund dues pay- 
able from the revenue earned, it should be classed as investment-debt and 
kept separate from the debt for non-productive outlays met by taxation. 
Hence the per capita net general debt of Boston in 1919 was $67.32, not 
.39, assuming that the population was 789,817 on Feb. 1.

Francis R. Bangs, Edward T. Kelly, W. Eugene McGregor, Mal- 
colm E Nichols, A. C. Ratshesky, John A. Sullivan, Edgar N. 
Wrightington. The Secretary of the Committee, A. C. Hanford, sub- 
mitted a report in May. showing what other large cities had done as to 
new business taxes, license fees, etc. (See City Record of May 15, 1920), 
and four public hearings were held in the old Aldermanic Chamber, City 
Hall, the last on July 8. In a communication to the Mayor, dated March 
13, the committee recommended an increase of 10 per cent in water rates, 
estimating that the additional revenue would be about $300,000 annually. 
The Mayor ordered this increase to go into effect in the third quarter of 
1920 and on annual bills for 1921. 

The final report of the committee was submitted to the Mayor on March 
21, 1921 (see City Record of April 2, 1921, pp. 248-256). The following 
excise taxes were recommended, viz. : Upon all retail sales of goods, wares 
and merchandise a rate of one per cent of gross amount, this tax estimated 
to produce $4,000,000 revenue; upon all amusement enterprises 5 per cent 
of gross receipts, estimated to realize $500 000: upon motor vehicles an 
increase of the fees for registration, etc. by the State, this revenue to be 
distributed to the cities and towns in proportion to the general State tax 
paid by them, estimated to yield $600,000 as Boston's share; upon various 
occupations, etc., increased license fees estimated to add $162,200 to the 
amount now received from such sources. Total increase of estimated 
revenue, $5,600,000, or a sum equivalent to $3.60 in the tax rate. The 
Legislature of 1921 postponed action until 1922 on the tentative bills 
recommended by the committee for enactment.

politan boards were abolished and a single Metropolitan Commission of 
five members was established. 

Another Metropolitan District, viz., the Fire Prevention District, was 
organized in 1914 by the enactment of chapter 795. In this district are 
the 14 cities of "Greater Boston," but only 10 of the towns, to which were 
added Reading and Rockland, a total of 26 municipalities. The District

RETIREMENT LAWS AND PENSIONS.* 

By Chapter 619, Acts of 1910, amended by Chapter 338, Acts of 1911, 
cities and towns are authorized to establish the retirement and contributory 
pension system therein set forth and applying to all municipal employees 
alike. The system has not become law in Boston because the City Coun- 
cil rejected it as impracticable. The classes of retired employees now 
receiving pensions are the police (since 1878), firemen (since 1880), school 
teachers (since 1908), judges, prison officers, Civil War veterans (since 
1911) and laborers, skilled and unskilled. The largest class, i. e., the 
laborers, were provided for by Chapter 413, Acts of 1911, accepted by 
the City Council on October 26, 1911. Any laborer sixty years of age 
or over, who has served the City for twenty-five years and is physically 
incapacitated shall, at his request, be retired from service, receiving for 
the remainder of his life an annual pension equal to one-half of his pay 
for his final year's service. All retirements are subject to the approval 
of the Retirement Board, viz., the Mayor, City Auditor and City 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. 

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 
* Concerning pensions paid to school teachers, see pages 148 and 149,

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 January 1, 1921, the total number of pensioners was 1,304 (8 less 
than in year preceding), divided as follows: Teachers, 343; firemen, 322; 
laborers, 253; police, 244; war veterans, 103; various others, 39. Of the 
laborers, 217 were from the Public Works Dept. and 27 from the Park 
Dept. 

The total of City and County pension payments in the fiscal year 
1920-21 was $698,563 ($47,781 more than in 1919-20), divided as follows: 
Fire Dept., $225,405; Police Dept., $174,691; Dept. of School Committee, 
$135,367; Public Works Dept., $115,710; other depautments, $47,389. 



SENATORIAL, REPRESENTATIVE AND COUNCILLOR 
DISTRICTS IN BOSTON.* 

The decennial apportionment, based, upon the 1915 census of legal 
voters, established new political districts as stated in Chapter 270. General
