RESOLUTION liAISJNG MONEY. 141 

Manchester, N. H., March 12, 1904. 
Gentlemen of the Common Coiiiicil: 

The resolution passed by your honorable board, on March 4, 1904, 
relating- to receipts and expenditures of the city of Manchester for 
the present year, was received by me March 9, 1904, and I herewith 
return the same with m}' objections affixed thereto in writing-. 

Under the provisions of this budget a tax rate of $2.12 on the hundred 
would be produced. After a careful examination of all the items, I 
find that this undesirable result is brought about by a failure on the 
part of the finance committee to make allowance for $45,000 free cash 
on hand in the treasury, on account of which the amount to be raised 
by taxation should be reduced from $698,000 to $653,000. 

The board of mayor and aldermen have had the matter of insuring 
the public buildings under consideration for a long time; a most care- 
ful investigation has disclosed the fact that by far the greater number 
of cities aijproaching- Manchester in size have adopted the policy of 
insuring themselves. Many of our public buildings are isolated and 
no general conflag-ration is likelj- to destroy many of them. A fund 
as proposed by the resolution of the board of aldermen would soon 
reach such figures as to afford us a perfect insurance and in such a 
way as to be a burden to no one. 

At the present time this would also accomplish the very desirable 
result of reducing the tax rate below the $2.00 mark. 

I, therefore, do hereby veto the item appropriating $10,850, "pre- 
miums for insuring city buildings," and I also do hereby veto the 
amount to be raised by taxation, viz., $698,000.00, and recommend the 
substitution in place thereof of the sum of $642,150. 

The recent severe rainstorm was in a large measure responsible for 
the fact that the appropriation for "removal of snow and ice" is ex- 
hausted, and in order that this department of public work under the 
street and park commissioners may not be crippled, I most respect- 
fully recommend that the sum of $2,000 be appropriated for this pur- 
pose. 

If your honorable board should adopt this recommendation, the 
said sum of $2,000 should be added to the total amount to be raised 
by taxation as above. 

EUGENE E. EEED, 
Alai/or. 

March 15, 1904. In Board of Common Council. Mayor's vetoes sus- 
tained and recommendations adopted, with the exception of the amount 
to be raised by tax, which was fixed at six hundred forty-four thou- 
sand, one hundred and fifty dollars ($644,150).

Some Laws and Decisions Relating to Exemptions from 
Taxation. 

CONSTITUTIOX OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. ARTICLE 82. PAGE 38, PUBLIC 

Statutes. 



ENCOURAGEMEXT OF LITERATIRE. ETC. 

Art. 82. "Knowledge and learnino- generally diffused through a 
community being essential to the preservation of a free government, 
and spreading the opportunities and advantages of education through 



148 KEPORT OF THE CITY AUDITOR. 

the various parts of the coimtr3', being highly conducive to promote 
this end, it shall \)e the duty of legislators and magistrates, in all 
future periods of this government, to cherish the interests of literature 
and the sciences, and all seminaries and public schools; to encourage 
private and public institutions, rewards, and immunities for the promo- 
tion of agriculture, arts, sciences, commerce, trades, manufactures, and 
natural history of the country: to countenance and inculcate the prin- 
ciples of humanity and general benevolence, public and private charity; 
industry and economy, honesty and punctuality, sincerity, sobriety, 
and all social affections and generous sentiments among the people; 
provided, unoiheloiS, that no money raised by taxation shall ever be 
granted or applied for the use of schools or institutions of any re- 
ligious sect or denomination." 

Public Statutes, Chapter 55. 

"Sect. 2. Real estate, whether improved or unimproved, and 
whether owned by residents or others, is liable to be taxed, except 
houses of public worship, twenty-five hundred dollars of the value of 
l^arsonages owned by religious societies and occupied by their pastors, 
schoolhouses, seminaries of learning, real estate of the United States, 
state, or town used for public purposes, and almshouses on county 
farms." 

"Sect. 11. Towns may by vote exemjit from taxation for a term not 
exceeding ten years any manufacturing establishment proposed to be 
erected or put in operation therein, and the capital to be used in oper- 
ating the same, unless such establishment has been previously ex- 
empted from taxation by some town." 

OPINION OF THE SUPREME COURT. 

58 N. H. Rep., page 623. "The exemption in each case is limited to 
ten years. A perpetual alienation of the whole power of taxation 
would be the destruction of government; and the dangerous tendency 
of legislation suspending any part of that power, for any period, is 
manifest. P. Bfnik v. BiUhigs, 4 Pet. 514, 561. So long as the existing 
laws remain unrepealed, and the constitutional construction hereto- 
fore adopted remains unchanged, contracts hereafter made under 
these laws and that construction will be valid. If the legislature for 
any reason wish to prevent the making of any more such contracts, 
their object can be accomplished by a repeal of the laws authorizing 
them." 

Hospitals, etc., are exempt from taxation in their respective charters 
as "being of the nature of a public chtfrity," as follows: 

Gale Home for Aged and Destitute Women, X. H. Laws of iMUf), 
chapter 109. 

Klliot Hospital. X. H. Laws of ISSl. chapter 17S. 

.Manchester Woman's Aid and Relief Society, organized in January,

excess as to require the attention of the city councils to be called to 
the same? 

6. Is the bill written in a fair legible hand, correctly cast, and on 
paper of sufficient leng-fh and width to admit of its proper backing and 
filing?

To the Water C<mwi.'<sioiierf< of tlie Clfi/ of Mutivlirj<ter: 

The report of your superintendent foi- the year 1'.)(lt is lierewitli 
respectfully submitted. 

>[A,SSABESIC LAKK. 

After five ^ears of an abuiulaut su])])ly ol' watei- the lake reached 
its lowest i)oint since the water-works were built, thirty-tive inches 
below the dam, December ~T. Today it stands thirty-four inches 
below. 

The prime reason for this state of things was the small amount 
of rainfall. Evaporation was not more than common, and no uiore 
water was pumped than usual. While the water was low it was 
thought best to build a new dam at the outlet, strong- and tight enough 
to hold the water back in case of an accident to the canal or gates. 

The material to buHd with was on the groimd, plenty of sand and 
gravel, and all we had to haul was the cement and the lumber for the 
raceway. This i-aceway \\as l)uilt fifteen feet ^\•ide: the old one was 
nine feet wide. 

The new dam is forty feet long, five feet wide on the bottom and 
four feet wide on the toj), with iron pins put in for jjutting on flash- 
boards. The height is al)out the same as the old one. This dam was 
built by the Head & Dowst Company in two weeks, and cost aiiout 
one thousand dollars. 

.\fter this wor-k was done the men went round the lak'c and cleared 
off the logs and hrnsii that had been covered \\\i with water when the 
lake was fidl. Tiie old cellar hole on the place where the Massabesic 
House was burned was filled u]), and from forty to fifty loads of stone 
taken from the walls and duni|)e(l on Severance shore to rubble the 
banks. 

On the 29th day of .lune the concrete at the lowei' end of the canal 
round the gates fell into the water. As it did no harm nothing was 
done only to fix it up so as to get at the screens. The whole thing- 
will have to be repaired and the gate house |)ut into good shape the 
coming summer. 

.V few cart loads of sand were dum])ed (ui the to|) of the dam, 
hoping that it would work down into the cracks and check some of 
the leaks when the pond got full of water.

HOARD OF WATEi; COMMISSION EltS. 195 



Not many repairs were made on the pump house or the machiiicrv. 
Everything- worked smooth and nice about the pumps, and from Octo- 
ber until the present time a good part of the water has been pumped 
by steam from the new station. In fact, most of it was so pumped 
this last month. A cheap woodshed was built west of the station mihI 
new piping was put into the dwelling house. 

At the new station the ordinar.y repairs were made on the pinn|)s. 
The new pump has done its work with satisfaction. It has sujjplied 
the city with water both for the low and high service almost wholly 
since November first. 

The old pumps at the old station have been silent on account of low 
water a great deal of the time. Two hours a day has been about all 
the help we could have from this source since December first. ' 

The piazza on the dwelling-house at the high-service station was 
laid over, and the plank walk to the clothesline was repaired. 

The old reservoir banks and the ground about were fertilized to 
strengthen the grass roots so as to keep the banks from washing. 
This has to be done often to keep the grounds about in good order. 

The new reservoir has been leaking quite a little. The inside is 
built of stone, the outside is earth, sloping one and one half to one. 
The frost and ice loosened the cement and let the water through onto 
the earth work. These seams were filled with jute packing and mortar 
and the wall repointed with good Portland cement. No leaks have 
shown up since the repairs. 

Both supply mains have needed about the same number of repairs 
as usual. Not much pipe has been laid this season, but a little over 
a half mile all told, at an expense of $2,750. It has been laid in ten 
different streets, size from six to eight inches. In fact, we have not 
had much pipe on hand to lay, nor the money to lay it. 

Last winter was a verj' cold winter. The ground froze five and one 
half feet deep. Seventy-five feet of four-inch pipe froze on the Calef 
road, opposite the Pine Grove cemetery, on account of cutting down 
the street by the electric railroad. Fifty feet of six-inch pipe on the 
dead end at Rockland avenue froze five and one half feet deep. 

We began to thaw out service pipes January 25 and kept at it for 
six weeks, thirty or more being thawed out. We have laid about 
ninety new service pipes this season, and have relaid about one hun- 
dred and four. 

It is very gratifying at the end of the year to come out ahead. Last 
year we were $354.93 behind: this year we have on hand $26,068.38.

REPOfiT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 



To Hit< Honor the Mayor: 

The board of health submits the following report for the year 1904: 

Mr. W. K. Robbins. whose term expired, was reappointed to succeed 
himself. 

At the annual meetiiiy Di-. William M. Parsons was re-elected presi- 
dent, and W. K, Robbins clerk of the board. 

The appropriation allowed by the city council for carrying on the 
work of the department during the year was $lo,000. 

The expenditures have been as follows: 

OFFICE EXPEWSEiS. 

Salaries $600.00

$4,136.44 

Total expenditure for 1904 $11,779.84 

Amount turned in from milk license fees $336.50 

It will be noticed t'hat the general expenses of the office have been 
less than those of last year by $682.26, and considerably less than for 
several 3'ears past. 

The decrease it appears, by inspecting the items in the account, is in 
those being incurred by the care of contagious diseases, and, as will 
appear later, fewer cases have been reported than usual. 

The increase in expense on account of the Isolation Hospital is all 
in two items, namely, repairs and improvements and board and nurs- 
ing. Improvements consist in dividing \ip the suspect wards and fit- 
ting part of the room up as a diet l<itchen, and taking part of the 
shed building and fitting it up for a laundry. 

The most of the repair expense was for enlarging the lieatiiig appar- 
atus, w^hich was found to be quite inadequate. 

The expense on account of smallpox was less on account of the 
smaller number of cases to be cared for. 

The repairs begim last year, and interrupted bj^ the reappearance 
of the disease, were completed. 

The large bills for vaccination were incurred by vaccinating the 
children of tlie parochial schools. 

^lilk inspection, which' formerly cost the city $300, is merged in the 
general oflHce expenses, which have been thereby increased but little, 
and the amount collected and turned into the city treasury for milk 
licenses was this year $336.50. 

MKBTINGS. 

The regular weekly meetings have been continued on Tuesday even- 
ings. Forty-two such meetings were held and twelve special meetings 
for trips of inspection and such other business as required immediate

attention. The business of the (le|>;irtnient is each ye.ii- more and 
more ti-ansaeted at the otfiee. where exjierienced liclp ;iiid reo-uhir 
offiee hours makes it more conveniently done. 

INSPECTORS. 

The same offiee force as that of last year has been continued in ser- 
vice, namely: Carl O. Seaman, inspector of plumbing anil milk, and 
William B. Blake and Jo'hn F. Looney, health insjiectors. Miss M. 
Alma Fracker has continued as oflfice clerk. All have been faithful 
and efficient and have manifested much interest and enterprise, which 
are the prime requisites of good work, and they are entitled to much 
credit for the efficiency of the work of the department. 

BACTEiRIOLO<iICAr. LABORATORY. 

This department has done comparatively little work this year, the 
tests being nearlj^ all made at the State Laboratory of Hygiene, at 
Concord, which during the year has made for us 105 diphtheretic ex- 
aminations, of wliich ?>?> were positive, or true diphtheria, and 72 were 
neg-ative. Twenty-four of the negative were examinations for the dis- 
charge of patients. 

Physicians are again urged to avail themselves of tliese tests, not 
that they are to be considered infallible, but as affording valuable 
information. It is especiall.y desirable that in case of sudden death, 
and where the clinical symptoms were not observed during illness by 
a physician, or where any question could possibly be raised, that a 
caTefully taken culture be forwarded to this department. 

Our laboratory is constantly ready for use, and if not convenient or 
desirable to send out of the city, the work will be promptly done here. 

MILK INSPECTION. 

The inspection of the city milk supply has been conducted upon the 
same basis as for the past two years. 

The work has proceeded without friction, and the legal requirements 
have been well complied with. 

The detailed information concerning this will be found in a separate 
report of the milk inspector, Mr. Carl O. Seaman, which is made a part 
of this report. 

PLUMBING INSPECTION. 

There has been no change in the laws or rules in relation to the 
inspection of plumbing. Being well known and consistently enforced 
there is no friction, and yet we are confident that no city has better 
protection in the way of safe plumbing than our own, and this we 
think is due to the tactful efficiency of Plumbing Inspector Seaman. 

WATER; S.UPPLY. 

The waters of Lake Massabesic have been looked after as usual, but 
this requires less time now than when its shores were used as a cheap 



232. ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

summer resort, and since the water commissioners have obtained 
control of very important shore land on the front pond. 

Ice cutting and teaming upon the ice is observed more closely than 
formerly. During the autumn, when the water was extremely low, 
the water commissioners did some very creditable work in clearing 
rubbish from the bogs. 

We continue to have the water analyzed from time to time, and make 
all available observations looking to the preservation of the purity of 
what is now one of the best citj^ water supplies in the whole country, 
and we commend the use of the lake water to those of our citizens, 
who, in their extreme concern, have souglit the use of spring waters. 
In this connection it is well to state that the various springs about 
the city are frequently examined. 

The water of Hanover sjjring has been contaminated with filtered 
sewage for years, and the contamination being steadily on the in- 
crease, this board voted to close the spring, with the approval of the 
State "Board of Health, which approval was received in a letter from the 
secre.tary, Dr. Watson, on September 12. 

The street and park commissioners wei'e notified, but up to the close 
of the year the water had not been shut ofE as advised. 

Some people make use of the bottled spring water peddled about 
the city, thinking that because the water of the spring is pure that 
they have taken the best precaution of safety by using it, but there 
are some risks which thej' do not realize. 

Thus, the bottles and corks are used over and over Avithout being 
sterilized, and no pains taken to' take always the same bottle to each 
family, thus making a very possible distributing of diseases. This im- 
presses us the more since an employee of the oflfice saw an attendant 
upon a typhoid fever patient hold the cork from one of these bottles 
in the mouth while pouring out a drink for the patient. That same 
stopper and bottle quite probably went, when filled, to some very par- 
ticular family, who were afraid to use the good, reliable lake water. 

I90LATIOX HO&PITAL. 

This institution has done the same good work this year as last. 
During the year forty-five patients have been cared for, and no deaths 
Lave resulted. 

Mrs. Eva M. Nute resigned as matron of the hospital, and after 
serving the agreed notice retired, and Mrs. Carl E. Itydin was en- 
, gaged, and has proven a very kind and efficient matron. 

The suspect rooms of the wards were little used, but the nurses 
were at great inconvenience to procure hot water or warm up medicine 
or food, so during the year these suspect rooms were cut in two, and 
a portion of each converted into a diet kitchen, where the patient's 
dishes are washed before being returned to the administration build- 
ing, and where small portions of food are i^repared by the nurse, using 
electric heat for the purpose. 



RKPOKT OF THK BOAKD OF IIFALTH. 238 

The kitchen of the administration building- was much too small 
Avhen bniit, and besides it is not the pvojier jilaee to do the wasliino- 
for the ])atients, so a part of the shed building was converted int<) a 
laundry and a refrigerator was built onto the kitchen. 

The heating apparatus proving totally inadequate, a larger sleam 
heater was installed and is giving good satisfaction. 

During the next yeai- it is h()])ed we shall be able to concrete about 
the premises and build a shed for the shelter of teams, also to paint 
the buildings, as they are lieginning to show the need of it already. 

DIPIITIIKUIA AXD SCARLET FEVER. 

These diseases prevailed during the year to a smaller extent than 
usual. It will be borne in mind that this autumn was dry and cold, 
while those of the last year and the year before were warm and wet. 
Thus, for the months of October, November, and December there were 
In all twenty-six cases of diphtheria and membranous croup reported, 
while for the same three months of 190:i there were ninety-seven 
cases, and for 1902, one hundred and nine cases. These may be coin- 
cidences, but they are so suggestive as to merit attention and record. 



We began the year with eight cases in the first month, and cared 
for a Aarying- number until August 28. when the hospital was clear 
and fumigated. During- that time one hundred and five cases were 
treated with but a single death. Since that time the city has been 
free from the disease. 

The repairs which were begun in the autumn of 190,'! were com- 
pleted and the building is now in better condition than at any time 
since it was built. It has been replastered, whitewashed, painted 
inside and out, wired and fitted with electric lights, and first-class 
water-closets have been installed. Some bedding and lig-ht furniture 
will be needed when used again, but it is deemed better to ])rovide 
these new when needed, as it can be done at short notice and the 
goods be more desirable than if stored in the hospital. 

The city owes a debt of gratitude to Miss Judith Sherer, the matron, 
and to Mr. A. D. Sherer and wife, who together have conducted the 
hosjjital in a most excellent manner. 

SCHOOL SANITATION, 

Near the close of the year, the death of one of the teachers in the 
Webster-street school created something of a fright among the people 
of that section of ttie city. It was simply a fright, characterized by 
the rash statements and absence of reason or judgment of those who 
are scared. The death was treated by this board as diphtheria, as 
that was the cause of death returned, and the usual careful investi- 
gations were made. The jDhysicians who made the diagnosis and

signed the death return were positive that, as the teacher had not 
been in the school building for more than forty-eight hours previous 
to feeling the first symptoms of sickness, she could have left no con- 
tagion there, and were equally sure that the disease was not con- 
tracted there, and said they considered fumigation unnecessary. 

Manj' other physicians were consulted and all agreed that no case of 
diphtheria ever becomes contagious two days before symptoms of the 
disease appear, and no case has ever been observed by this board 
where the disease has been communicated by a patient before the 
symptoms become noticeable. This, with the fact that no case of diph- 
theria had occurred in that section of the city for nine months pre- 
vious and that no case of disease of any kind had been attributed to 
the building, satisfied the board that there was no more occasion to 
fumigate the Webstei'-street school than any public building in the 
city. The cost or trouble of fumigation did not enter into the ques- 
tion, because if there were probability of infection, fumigation would 
have been done regardless of cost. 

Complaints were received concerning the drainage of the building. 
This was inspected by the plumbing inspector, a skillful, practical 
plumber. A latrine system of water-closets was found to be in use, 
but in good repair, and receiving excellent care from the janitor. 
This board reported to the school committee and recommended that 
the system be changed to a modern water carriage system. Tips rec- 
ommendation was taken by many to mean that the board had con- 
demned the sanitary condition of the school, which was not a legiti- 
mate inference, because a poor system handled with sufficient care 
is safe as long as the extra care continues, and no system known at 
the present time will be safe without some care, though much less may 
suffice. In this particular instance there was no leakage, and the 
latrine was flushed so often that the walls of it never became dry, and 
therefore if germs of the most contagious disease had been deposited 
in it the pupils of the school would have been in no danger, because 
these minute organisms never leave a wet surface. Upon this depends 
the fact that bacteriologists handle all varieties of these germs with 
safety. 

The excitement manifested in this incident raises the query, when 
should schoolhouses be fumigated? Should it l)e done every time a 
teacher or pupil of a school contracts a contagious disease? IF it 
were made the rule in such a city as ours some school would be chised 
for fumigation all the time. It is not necessary, has never been done 
here or elsewhere to the best of our knowledge, and jet we have never. 
had an epidemic of contagious disease from our schools. The occur- 
rence of a single case might make it desirable to fumigate, and again 
a number of cases might not. It depends upon circumstances, and 
somebody must decide. This is the duty of the bo.inl of health. It 
makes careful investigation of all obtainable facts, and makes far 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 235 

inore extensive inquiry than the j^eneral ])nhlic is aware of. The 
decision must be arrived at from facts and conditions as found, and 
not from the chatter of scared people who proclaim that they know 
nothing about it but are still afraid that something might happen. 

In conclusion we would suggest that the tables of statistics of the 
year's mortality are worthy of careful perusal, also the reports of the 
inspectors which are made a piirt of this report. We wish to extend 
our thanks to the citizens generally' and to the mayor and city gov- 
ernment in particular for sympathy, encouragement, and assistance 
in the discharge of our duties. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF INSPECTOR OF PLUMBING AND MILK. 



Gentlemen of the Board of Health: 

I beg to submit the following as a report of the inspection of milk 
during the j-ear 1904: 

During the year T.')2 samples of milk, skim milk and cream were 
taken. Three hundred and forty-three samples were brought into the 
office by citizens and milk dealers, and the remaining 409 were taken 
by the inspectors and paid for at the retail price. In eleven cases 
sealed, duplicate samples were demanded and given and receipts taken 
therefor. 

During the winter season of higher legal requirements, namely, Jan- 
uary, February, and March, 127 samples of milk were tested, averaging 
4.1() per cent of butter fat with a specific gravity of 1.0,'ill, and 10 
were below the legal standard of butter fat. 

During the summer period of April, May, June, July, August, and 
September, 236 samples of milk were tested, averaging 4.02 per cent 
butter fat with specific gravity of 1.0311, and five were below the legal 
standard in butter fat. During the months of October, November, 
and December, 179 samples were tested, averaging 4.05 per cent of 
butter fat with specific gravity of 1.0308, and 12 were below the legal 
standard of butter fat. Of the entire 752 samples taken 27 were below 
the legal standard. Thirty samples of skim milk and cream were 
taken, the cream averaging 29.9 per cent of butter fat. 

Drying and weighing to determine total solids were resorted to 
four times. The specific gravity of the milk serum was determined 
six times. The milk has also been tested for acidity by the Mann 
volumetric method of analysis. One hundred and ninety-six samples 
of milk tested from January 1 to March 31 showed .163 per cent 
acidity; 204 samples tested from April 1 to September 30 showed .159 
per cent acidity, and 169 samples from October 1 to December 31 
showed .156 per cent acidity. 

Almost every sample was tested for formaldehyde and many addi- 
tional tests were made for colostrum cells, coloring matter, carbonates, 
salicylic acid, and boric acid. 

Twentj^-three wagons were found improperly marked, eleven hav- 
ing the wrong name and licen.se number, while seventeen dealers were 
fonnd selling without a license. 

Twenty-six letters have been written to dealers and raisers of millc 
during the year. 

243 



244 ANNUAL OFFICIAL IlEPORTS. 



The inspection has been carried on this year \vitht)Ut any friction 
or prosecution of the dealers. The dealers have corrected any discrep- 
ancy in the milk or the handling of it, upon notices from the inspector. 
Several dealers put in ijasteurizing machines and during the sum- 
mer months have pasteurized all their milk, cream, and skim milk, 
insuring sweet milk for several hours longer to people who do not 
keep ice in their homes. 

ins)jection of several creameries about town shows that they are 
kept in a clean and sweet condition at all times, and a great deal of 
care is exercised in sterilizing the milk cans and glass bottles, also 
the pipes and apparatus for the separating of cream and skim milk. 
One iirm, after installing an expensive pasteurizing machine, found it 
did not do the work satisfactorilj- and immediate!}' took it out and 
l)ut in another kind which would do the work. 

COLOSTROM MILK. 

We have had several complaints of bad-tasting and smelling milk, 
and upon investigation have found that it is cavised undoubtedly by 
colostrom or beisting milk (milk from cows which have calved within 
four or five days). Authorities on this subject say this milk is not 
dangerous to use, but has a disagreeable taste and smell, and is not 
fit for food. This trouble is of such short duration that we have not 
been able to get a sample on which to bring a prosecution. In every 
ease the comiilaint has been delayed two or three days, by which time 
the source of trouble has stopped, and the only evidence is circum- 
stantial. I have learned that on one occasion, when complaint was 
made, that at the same time the offensive milk appeared, the raiser's 
milk increased several cans^ and that three cows had just calved. 
I have cautioned these dealers not to put on the market the first 
milk from new-milch cows or from cows that are about to calve. 

Colostrom milk acts as a purge upon the young calf, and probably 
would have the same effect upon infants, therefore, that being the 
case, it is unwholesome. Another thing about colostrom milk is that it 
decomposes verj- rapidlj'. People who raise milk would never think of 
using beisting, or colostrom milk, in their families. 



Occasionally we take sam|)les of cream and test them for preserva- 
tives, acidity, butter fats, adulterants, and cream thickeners. 

Cream thickener.s are on the market which depend ui)on the saponi- 
fication of the butter fats to thicken the cream. 

We were fortimate in securing a sample of a cream thickener of this 
kind, and have analyzed it, found out the substance it is composed of, 
and are testing cream for it. 

There are two grades of cream offered for sale in Manchester, known 
as thick and thin cream. The thick cream tests from 19 to 50 per cent 



IIEPOKT OK THI-: BOAIID OF HEALTH. 245 

<if butter fat and tlu' tliiii crcani tests from 12 to IS per cent butter 
fat. , 

It seems to me that the only fair way, to the dealer as well as to the 
publie, is to sell ereani by the per cent of butter fat contained in it. 

RAISEKS OF MILK. ' , 

During- the year we have had occasion to use our authorit,y and go 
out of town and collect samples of milk directly from the raiser of 
milk, which we suspected was not up to the required standard. 

We timed these trips so that we could get the milk just as it was 
ready to be delivered to the milk dealer. This meant in one case a 
trip of twenty-four miles after 3.30 o'clock in the morning, and in 
another a trip of about twenty miles after four o'clock in the after- 
noon. 

When we have collected these samples we send them to the State 
Laboratory for examination. 

We wish to extend our thanks to Dr. Ellen Wallace for the interest 
which she took in the inspection of milk. 

Earlj^ in the year she procured of the United States Department of 
Agriculture several hundred copies of "Facts about Milk" and "Care 
of Milk on the Farm." These we distributed to the raisers and dealers 
of milk at the time they paid their license fee. 

We trust that the valuable information contained in these bulletins 
did some good. 

PLUMBING IKiSPBCTION. 

The plumbing inspector is called upon by the board of plumbing ex- 
aminers to conduct the examination of plumbers in the practical and 
written work. This year I have examined ten plumbers for the board. 

The written examination consists of twenty questions pertaining to 
plumbing for the journeymen plumbers and thirty questions for the 
master plumbers. The practical part includes the preparing, setting- 
up, and wiping of several joints, and the calking of a soil pipe joint. 
This work takes usually a whole da3% .and some times nearly two days 
to complete, and the board expects the plumbing inspector to see the 
work done, after which they j)ass upon it, allowing a per cent for the 
good work according to the looks, strength and correctness of the 
work. Every plumber so far has had practically the same number and 
kind of joints to make. This examination, together with an oral ex- 
amination of drawings and charts which I prepared, has proved to 
be a very accurate way to ascertain the knowledge and experience 
which the applicant for a i)lumber"s license has had, and in no case 
has the board been obliged to give a license to an incompetent man. 

During the year several men who had no license have been stoppel 
from doing plumbing work. 

They were not ])himbers and were warned not to do any more pluml;- 
ing. 



246 ANNUAL OFFICIAL EKl'OKTS. 

The state law calling- for the licensing- of plumbers has proven to be 
a just and good law: it has been a great benefit to the public, and is 
not detrimental to the workmen. The plumbing- work being- confined 
to licensed plumbers tends to make them specialists, and the more 
rapid and proficient in the execution of it. 

Consequently it is cheaper to have good work properly and expedi- 
tiously done by experienced workmen, at a fair rate of wag-es, than 
to have inferior work done in an insanitary and unworkmanlike man- 
ner. 

Plumbing- w'ork should always be considered as a permanent improve- 
ment on a building-, not as a necessary evil, but something- upon which 
the health and happiness of the occupants depend. 

Complaint was made at this office that sewer gas was filling a 
house on Russell street, and upon investigation we found that the 
gas came from an old brook culvert which connects with the sewer on 
Bridge street. This is a branch of Mile Brook. The street and park 
commissioners were notified, and they at once remedied the trouble 
by laying a large sewer pipe in Russell street, from Bridge to between 
Pearl and Orange streets, and the old culvert was abandoned. 

This Mile Brook, which runs nearly across the city through culverts, 
is frequently causing trouble and expense to the city, and it would be 
much better if it could all be carried by the sewers. 

This year the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company has continued tlie 
work of replacing- the latrines in their mills with flush valve, siphon jet, 
water closets. This work, when completed, will make a total of about 
three hundred water closets changed over from latrines, in the mills 
of this company. 

SXrEAI> SYSTEM OV SANITATIOX AND FUIXEH' & WARREN SY3TE1I. 

The Smead system of dry closets is still in use in the Varney, Rim- 
mon, and Spring-street schools. We have had complaints from the 
public about the odor inside and outside the buildings. 

At the Hallsville school the Fuller & Warren system of dry closets is 
in use. Our judgment is that the Smead system is superior to this. 
We are satisfied that no system of dry closets is a desirable system, 
as there are too many dangers connected with it, too many ways by 
which the rooms may become flooded with air from the privy vaults. 

The system at the Spring-street school I understand cannot be 
changed, as there is no sewer available, but at the same time this sys- 
tem is not located in the school building, so the danger is not as great, 
and therefore this might remain without any great harm until a sewer 
is provided. 

T respectfully recommend that the modern water carriage system of 
water closets be installed in all these buildings. While at present they 
are not immediately dangerous, T recommend that the change be made 



REPORT OF THE JJOARD OF HEALTH. 247 

as soon as it can be done conveniently, and that nntil snch change is 
made, extraordinary care be talcen to keep the old apparatus in the 
best possible working condition.

sent to about two hundred and fiftj' other towns and cities to local 
physicians, etc. 

Weekly reports of contagious diseases have been sent to the state 
board of health at Concord and the Marine hospital service at Wash- 
ington, D. C. Ten samples of water and 20 samples of oysters were 
sent to the state laboratory for analjsis. 

Contagious and infectious diseases have been reported as follows: 
Measles 69, diphtheria 64, typhoid fever 64, scarlet fever 67, membra- 
nous croup, 1.5, smallpox 114, total :!9r!. 

Three hundred and sixty-nine of these cases were reported by phy- 
sicians, 1.5 by householders, and 9 Avere discovered bj' the inspectors. 

The inspectors were unable to trace the cause in 294 cases, in 85 
cases the connection Avith some previous case was clearly traceable. 
Nine cases Avere contracted outside of the city and in 5 cases it was 
reasonable to attribute the cause to insanitary surroundings. 

In some cases disinfectants Avere being used and the inspectors 
ordered their use in other cases. At most of these places instructions 
were given as to their use and in many cases the dejoartment furnished 
the disinfectants. 

In some cases patients were found well isolated and in other cases 
inspectors Avere obliged to order isolation and in all cases to give in- 
structions as to the steps to be taken. 

Houses were Avatched to see that the rules of isolation Avere complied 
AA'ith and 1?> funerals were attended to ]irevent n too ])nblic observance 
of the same. 



250 AN^TAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

Oue thousand one luuulred and fifty-one rooms where diseases had 
existed were fumigated by the inspeetors and bedding was burned in 
1 case. 

About 3,000 pamphlets issued by the state board of health have lieen 
distributed in localities where contagious diseases existed. 

The shores of Lake ifassabesic were patroled by the inspectors on 
Sundays, holidays, and through the week during the summer season. 

Ice fields from which ice was being cut were inspected and several 
picnics and band concerts were attended to prevent the careless dis- 
posal of waste and rubbish in the lake or on its shores.

SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT. 



To the School Board, tlic City Councils, and the Citizens of Manchester : 

The following- is presented as the annual report of the school depart- 
ment for the school year 1903-1904. The report is the forty-ninth of a 
superintendent, and the fifty-eighth of the department as a whole. 

ENRiOj:.LMENT AND ATTENDANCE. 

The total enrollment of pvipils in all grades of the public schools 
has been five thoiisand nine hundred and twenty. The average mem- 
bership has been four thousand eight hundred and eig-hty-nine, and the 
average dailj' attendance four thousand fojiir hundred and eighty-three. 

A comparison of these figures with those of the preceding year shows 
that while the total registration has decreased by ninetj^-three, the 
average membership has increased by one hundred and fifteen, and the 
average daily attendance by one hundred and forty-five. The per cent 
of attendance has been two tenths lower than for the school j^ear 1902- 
1903. 

These numbers, four thousand eight hundred and eighty-nine for 
average membership and four thousand four hundred and eighty-three 
for average daily attendance, exceed those of the year 1901-1902, and 
are the largest in the history of the Manchester public schools. 

A comparison of the attendance a-t the different school buildings for 
the year 1903 with that for the year 1904 reveals the following: Seven 
school buildings have had a smaller attendance during 1904 than during 
1903. These buildings with their decreases were: High, four; Frank- 
lin, six; Lincoln, thirteen; Webster, eighteen; Parker, thirty-five: 
Straw, nine; Hig-hland, five; the total decrease being ninety. 

Fourteen have increased in membership as follows: Ash, twentj'-one: 
Varney, thirty-one; Bakersville, six; Hallsville, twenty-one; Eimmon, 
seventeen; Wilson, twenty-five; Spring street, eleven; Amoskeag, one: 
Merrimack-street, seventeen; Main-street, six; Pearl-street, twenty: 
Goife's, one; ungraded, two; the kindergarten, twenty-six; the total 
of increase being two hundred and five. 

The decrease in tardiness in the schools during the past year is 
gratifying. With an average membershi]i one hundred and fifteen 
greater than for 190:>, the tardinesses have decreased bj^ one thousand 
six hiiiKlied and seventy-four.

ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 



Thirteen buildings show decreases, one has remained stalionai'.y and 
six onl3' have greater per cents of tardinesses than for 1903. The rec- 
ord of the Varney school deserves especially to be commended. The 
membership of this school has been three hundred .and forty-two, and 
there have been but one hundred and eighty-nine tardinesses during the 
entire year, the pei'centage being- fourteen one hundredths of one per 
cent. The records of the various schools in this matter are again 
shown in Table I.

Viewed in the light of the statement at the opening of this topic, 
tlie table of attendance tipon the various buildings for the past live 
years will show the following in regard to the'public schools and school 
population of the city. 

The high school has had a slow, conservative gTowth, having- in- 
creased from three hundred and eig-hty to four hundred and one. The 
last term report from this school gave a membership of four hundred 
and fifty, an increase during- one term more than twice as great as 
during- the preceding five years.

I sehuol has about lield its own in ]neinl)ership, 
lower "grades iia\e lieeii o\ fi'tlowi ni;' with 

foi- more than five years a crowded biiild- 
relief, lias remained about the same iu 
niber is four hundred and t^^o. 
varied from tliree hundred and fort_\', its 
lowest point, to four huudretl and eiijht in i;)(l4. Its juvsent member- 
ship is four Inmdi-ed and forty-six. 

The \'arney school has beeu praetieally tilled for some time, and 
has beeu relieved by the Parker, which has steadily grown from one 
hundred and forty-eight to two ihtiudred and three. 

The Webster-street school in 1903 reached its maximiim average of 
three hundred and thirty-one, and closed last year with three hundred 
and tliirteen. The ])resent membership is three hundred and thirty- 
four. 

'I'he Bakersville school reached its maximum in 1902, when it was 
relieved by the building of the Highland school. Its membership is 
now gradually cree])ing' to\vard that of 1902, which was two hundred 
and thirty-one. 

'i'he Hallsville school has increased from three hundred and forty- 
one to four hundred and thirty-two, the Wilson .school from two hun- 
dred and ninety-six to three hundred and sixty-nine. 

'I'he Kinimon, Straw. Spring-street, and Mei'rimack-street schools 
have increased but slightly. 

Tlie Main-street school at times has been crowded. The necessary 
relief has been jiad by the transfer of pupils to the N'arney and l{im- 
mon schools. 

The I'earl-street school has had, upon the whole, a steady growth, its 
pupils numbering one hundred and seventj'-seven during the past year 
and its present membership being one hundred and seventy-three. 

The west side of the river has snftieient room for the accommodation 
of any reasonable increase for some time to come, except in the Rim- 
nion district. In this school, as stated formerly in these reports, six 
teachei's are occupying' rooms designed for four, and classes are regu- 
hirly coiiducteil in the hallways of the l)uilding. Tliis section of the 
city is dcsciviug- of rooms siitficient for the proper classification and 
accommodation of its children. 1 have no doubt but that a full graded 
eight-room building in tiiis section of the city would l)e filled within a 
very short ])eriod. 

On the east bank of t lie river, the schools situated near the main 
thoroughfares and nearest tiie river, the Straw, S])ring-street, Merri- 
mack street, and l''ra iil< li n-st rcct schools, have ain])le room at ])resent.

FIEPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS. 259 

Beech, and Maple streets, are filled with pupils or have numbers con- 
siderably in excess of the designed capacities of the buildings. 

The Ash-street school already has two extra rooms upon the third 
floor. At the time of the semi-annual promotions in February, it will 
be necessary to provide additiional accommodations in this building. 

The Lincoln-street school for several years has had an extra room 
uj)on its third floor, and as far as can be foreseen at present another 
will be necessary at the middle of the year. 

At the Wilson school, unless an unusually large class enters in 
February, there will be enough seats and the overflow room of one 
year ago will not be necessary. 

The condition of affairs at the Hallsville building is well known to 
you all. In the two primary rooms four teachers are employed, and 
an extra school is conducted in a rented store. The primary pupils 
belong'ing' to this school averaged during the past year two hundred 
and twenty-two, and a number of these attended school but one half 
session daily, some during the forenoon and the remainder during the 
afternoon. The opening of the new parochial school in this section 
of the city served to relieve this building only to the extent of allow- 
ing that the part-time classes be done away with. 

The present membership of these rooms is one hundred and forty- 
two, the normal seating capacity ninety-six. There is a surplus of 
forty-six pupils. Because of insuflTicient accommodations these fortv-six 
pupils have required three teachers. With sufficient accommodations 
the work could have been done by one. A saving in money could have 
been effected for the past term at the rate of $900 per year for salaries 
and $lT.j per year for rent and fuel, a total of $1,075. This is the 
income derived from $55,128.20 worth of taxable property with the 
tax rate at .0195. or it is the interest on $21,500 at five per cent per 
annum. Two years ago the annual report contained a similar state- 
ment in regard to the extravagance of the present arrangement. At 
that time $450 might have been saved. The amount has now grown 
to $1,073. At the middle of the yeai-. when beginners are admitted to 
this school, it will be necessary to return to the part-time classes 
unless a suitable room can be secured for their use. 

The hiring of a room will mean more money for rent and for the 
salary of an additional teacher. 

Tio summarize these statements: the public school population is 
greatest and increasing most rapidly in the eastern section of the city, 
along the slope of Wilson Hill and on the flats of East Manchester. 
The Ash-street, Lincoln-street, and Hallsville schools need relief. A 
careful survej- of the ground and an investigation of the present resi- 
dences of the lower grade pupils lead to the conclusiion that no one 
structure can be so located as adequately to relieve all of these build- 
ings. Two buildings or additions at least will be necessary. 

The report of 1902 advocated at least a two-room addition to the 
Hallsville school. The residences of children in this section are found 



260 ANNUAL OFFICIAL EEPOETS. 

upon investigation to be widely seatteied. The loeation of a new- 
building- adequately to relieve the school is a task of extreme diflficulty. 
The parents are rightly satisfied with and proud of the present school 
and its work. They do not complain of the distance to be travelled 
to reach the building. A school is efficacious and a character builder 
only as its teachers are eflficient and of strong personality. With a 
new building in this section, the parents would still prefer the old 
sc<hool, for they recognize this truth. 

An addition to the Hallsville school means economy and efficiency 
in supervision, as well as economy in construction and maintenance. 
The school board of 1902, in making up its anniial budget, included an 
appropriation for an addition to this budlding. The conditions are 
practically as found bj' the special committee of that board. It would 
therefore seem that the city government ought to appropriate suffi- 
cient money for the building of an addition to the Hallsville school, 
and for the erection of a four-room building to be so located in the 
eastern part of the citj- as to relieve the Pearl-street, Ash-street, and 
Lincoln-street schools. 

NEW BriI.DING AT OOFFP^'s FALLS. 

The present term has been marked hy the completion and occupa- 
tion of the new scJiool building at Goffe's Falls. The edifice is well 
placed upon a sjiacious lot and commands a pleasing western view. 
The structure is of brick, granite trimmed, and contains four commo- 
dious, well-lighted .schoolrooms and two excellent basements. The 
interior is of hard pine finish. Heat and ventilation are provided by 
two hot air furnaces. The building was constructed by .7. H. Mendell 
& Co., after plans by the architects, McFarland, Colby & McFarland. 
It is now occupied by three .schools, numbering eighty-nine pupils. 

CHAXC4ES AND TRANSFERS. 

During the year changes and transfers among the teachers have 
been many. 

At the Pearl-.street .school, in January, Miss Georgia Cheney resigned 
her position as teacher of the lower primary room and Miss Susie L. 
Dodge was transferred from a similar grade at the Franklin-street 
school to fill the vacancy, iliss Lena B. Bower being in turn elected 
to the vacancy caused by the transfer of Miss Dodge. 

At the opening of the second semester, extra rooms vvere opened 
in the Ash-street and Wilson schools. Mrs. Ede B. Shand and Miss 
Ada B. Morse being chosen respectively as teachers. 

At the beginning of the spring term Miss l']lizabeth Flaiiders resigned 
her position as teacher in the middle school of the I'arker building. 
]^Iiss Mary L. Ayer was transferred from the Hallsville building to 
fill this position, her place being in turn filled by the promotion of Miss 
Flora M. Walker from the grade next lielow in the same Iniilding. 



REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS. 261 

Miss Walker's room w;is takt'ii by Miss Mae L. Lovejoy, a "radiiate of 
the training school. 

At the end of the school year two highly esteemed and valued 
teachers, Misses Florence ^L Locke and Sara Hunt, resigned their 
positions as teachers of the high schiool. It was deemed best by the 
committee to elect but one new teacher at this time and Mr. Adolph 
Schumacher was selected as instructor in modern languages at this 
institution. 

llesignations were also received from ^Miss Mary E. IMurphy of the 
Webster-street school and Miss Helen M. Morrill of the Spring-street 
school. The vacancies thus created were filled by the electron of 
Misses Agnes Woodbnr3- and Agnes Shay. At the Spring-street school 
also the grade kept by Miss Nellie I. Sanderson, for man^' j-ears an 
earnest teacher, was discontinued, and consequently no teacher elected 
for the school. 

Of our special teachers there resigned also at this time Mr. Eben F. 
Kichardiffon, supervisor of music, and Mr. Jioseph F. Carter, assistant 
at the manual training- school. Mr. A. J. Abbott of Gardiner, Mass., 
was elected to fill the first vacancj^ and Mr. Arthur French to fill the 
second. 

During the summer vacation Miss Mary Clement resigned from the 
middle school in the Main-street building-, and Misses Hattie Willand, 
Kate T. Clarke, and Elizabeth F. Walsh were respectively raised in 
grade and Miss Ethel F. Currier elected to the vacancy thus left. 
Miss Lura B. Gage of the Parker school also tendered her resignation 
at the same time and. Miss Ayer and Miss Polsom being promoted, the 
resulting vacancy was filled by the election of Miss Alice B. Morrill. 

At the September meeting of the board the resignation of Miss Mary 
F. Barnes of the Lincoln-street school was offered and accepted. :Miss 
Lillian F. Crowther was transferred from' the Rimmoii school to fill 
this vacancy, and Miss Irene Nichols, lately a teacher in Quincy, ^^lass., 
was elected to the third and fourth divisions of the Rimmon school. 

During the first month of the present term. Miss S. Isetta Locke of 
the Bakersville school resigned the cares of the schoolroom for the 
happiness of matrimony. Her place was filled by the election of Miss 
Bessie J. Bartlett, and now at the close of the year 190-1 is tendered 
the resignation of Miss Lizzie P. Gove, principal of the Straw school. 

Miss Gove began her term of service as a teacher in our public 
schools during the month of November, 1853. Her fitness for the office 
of instructress of the young was determined by a foui:-hour oral exam- 
ination, conducted by eight members of the schiool board. Among the 
members of this board were Dr. Sylvanns Bunton, Dr. William Gray, 
James O. Adams, and Andrew G. Tucker. She commenced the work of 
teaching in a middle school in what is now the Spring-street building, 
and remained there continuously, with changes of grade and room, 
for forty-three years. She has been the associate of superintendents 
as follows: James 0. Adams, John W. Ray, Joseph G. Edgerly, Josiah 



262 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

Dearborn. Joseph Kidder, William E. Buck, and the present ineinnbent; 
of principals, William H. Ward, Henry C. Bullard, J. W. Barrows, Fran- 
cis W. Parker, ElViridge D. Hadley, Jacob Eastman, John Hayes, Wil- 
liam E. Buck, Sylvester Brown. E. P. Sherburn. Mary L. Sleeper, Anna 
O. Heath. 

^Nliss Gove was for seven years principal 'of the Sprin!>-street school, 
and has served in the same capacity at the Straw school since the 
opening- of that bnildingf. She has been associated with all of the 
special teachers emplo.yed by the city, and with the consent of the 
board at that time first employed a special teacher of music. Mr. 
Imri S. Whitnej-, paying him for his services from her own pocket. 

The compensation of middle and primary teachers at the beginning 
of her term was $4 per week; the cost of board — fuel, lights and 
washing- included — was $l.oO per week. War times raised- this com- 
pensation somewhat, and post-war times have gradually increased the 
salary to the present amount. 

During- this time ^Miss Gove has been absent from her duties but 
one year, and the present term, therefore, concludes fifty years and 
one month of successful teaching. The elements of her success I shall 
not attempt to analj'ze. Too many factors are involved. Her power 
in the schoolroom and influence in the building are undiminished 
todaj-. Devotion to duty has been the motto of her life; progress her 
watchword. Hundreds of men and women of today bear witness to 
the careful, exact, discriminating training receiAed under her direc- 
tion, and from the people of the city is she entitled to receive the 
benediction, "Well done, good and faithful servant." 

OBITUARY. 

Twice during the year 1904 has the hand of death intervened in 
school affairs, and removed from our midst two most devoted, earnest, 
successful teachers. Misses Mary F. Barnes and Edith Hammond. 

Miss Barnes was a native of Manchester, haA'ing been bnin in this 
city November 1, 18."}!. Upon the completion of her high school course, 
and after a period of experience in training for the w^ork of teach- 
ing, she was elected a teacher in the public school and assigned to the 
Lincoln-street school, teaching in that building- a middle school dur- 
ing two terms of the year 1874 and, after that, continuously in the 
same building until the first of the j-ear 1902, Avhen she was granted 
leave of absence for the remainder of the year because of failing 
health. The opening of the following year bronglit no improvement 
and the leave of absence was continued initil tlie beginning of the 
pre.sent fall term, at which time Miss Barnes presented her resigna- 
tion to this board. For more than thirty years Miss Barnes was en- 
rolled as a teacher in our schools. She was a woman lof rare tact, good 
judgment, great energy, and ability. Devoted to her work, she lost 
no opportunity of keeping abreast with the times. Miss Barnes was 
a member of and attended the meetings of the National Educational 



JiEPORT OF THE SI I'EUINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS. 263 

Association. .Slu> \\iis also inlncsted in local associations and heartily 
forwarded whatever was good in educational work. 

On the twelfth day of December, after an extremely brief ill- 
ness, occurred the death of Miss Edith Hammond of the Webster- 
street school. The community- was shocked, and all join in mourning 
the loss sustained by the public schiools. Miss Hammond came to 
this city from Winchester, Mass., and first served as teacher for one 
term in the year 1892 in the Blodget-street building, a primary school. 
She was then transferred to the Webster-street school, where she has 
since taught, having been jjromoted from time to time until she was 
I>laced in charge of the higher middle grade. Mi.ss Hammond was a 
loving hearted, skillful teacher, and had the affection of her pupils 
and associates to an unusual degree. Her sunny disposition and en- 
couraging smile were constant incentives to work. School was a 
pleasure and a delight to her pupils. 

p:vexixg schools. 

The evening schools have been more largely attended during the 
present fall than for some years previous. It has been customary 
to oj)eh these schools in September and continue them for twelve 
weeks, closing at the same time that the j)ublic daj'^ schools close. A 
long-er term is desirable, and it is the g-eneral of)inion of the teachers 
that good could be accomplished out of proportion to the increase in 
cost by leng-thening the period for which the schools are kept by three 
or more weeks, and dividing the time into two terms, one during the 
fall and the other during the w'inter, beginning in January. I would 
recommend this change for j-our consideration. 

HIGH SCHOOL. 

The passing of another year has but strengthened the position of 
the high school in public esteem. Formerlj^ the passing- mark in this 
institution was sixty per cent. This, during the year past, has been 
raised and a mark of seventy jiev cent, at least, in each study is now 
required to secure a diploma, and to graduate from the school. The 
inauguration of this plan was viewed by some with apprehension, and 
that naturally. The result up to the present time, however, has been 
such as to banish all fears in regard to its wisdom. The pupils have 
done better work and there have been fewer deficiencies than in 
former years. 

To all who are familiar with school work it is a well-known fact 
.that a teacher will get from his pupils that which he is willing to 
accept. If he will accept only the pupil's best efforts, the pupil will 
offer only his best. If the teacher is satisfied with and will accept 
infeiior work, inferior work only will he receive. This truth has been 
well illustrated in connection with the present raising of the standard 
for graduation. 



264 ANNUAL OFFfCIAL REPORTS. 



Of the four hundred and fifty pupils in this institution, two hundred 
and nine, or forty-six per cent, are taking- some work in the business 
department. Mr. Herrick informs me that the sophomore and senior 
bookkeeping classes number seventy-eight; commercial arithmetic 
classes, seventy-six; the tj-pewriting class, seventy- five, and the pen- 
manship class, seventj'-five. 

;\rr. Herrick has been able to assist forty of his ])U])ils to self-sup- 
porting iDositions soon after graduation. However, he finds himself 
somewhat handicapped in this work from the fact that the pupils 
have had experience with but one make of typewriter. The Hammond 
is used exclusively in this institution. There is one Remington 
machine in the building, but it was sold to the city for use in the 
office of the school, and in consideration of the price at which it was 
obtained was to be used for that purpose exclusively. 

I believe that it is a mistake to confine instruction to any one 
machine, that the xinpils should have an opportiniity to learn the 
manipulation of at least two standard machines, one where the writing 
is visible and another where it is hidden, and those machines of the 
kinds most in use in our city. It wotdd be a most wise move to ex- 
change a part of the present equipment for an equal number of one 
or more of the leading machines. For school use these machines can 
be obtained at a great reduction from list prices. 1 am unable to give 
figures in support of this statement, but I believe that many pupils 
are kej)t in school and encouraged to enter vipon a high school course 
because of the possibility of receiving a business education in the high 
school. Accordingly, it is a matter of great importance that this 
department should be so equipped as to meet the needs of the com- 
munity. 

The rejxirt of ]'.)():; discussed l)riefly the matter of the uumhcr of 
recitation jjcriods per week for high school pupils. Since the writing 
of that report music has been made <'ompulsory. The course of study 
as now laid down requires nineteen periods of recitation work per 
week. Music requires one ])criod. Each pupil, therefore, has twenty 
recitation periods per week. 'J'here are thirty periods in the five school 
days. The pupil recites during two thirds of the time that he passes 
in school. He averages two study periods per day. lie should have 
at least three. I believe that the number of recitation periofls should 
be limited by the board to fifteen, or at most sixteen, a week, and that 
provision should be made for a longer course of preparation on the 
part of those designing to enter college at the couc-lusion of the high- 
school course. 

MAXlAt, TRA1^IX<; SCirOOL. 

The monthly reports of attendance upon the public day schools 
make no mention of the nimiber of pupils enrolled in the manual 
training school. bc<-ause these pupils arc first registered in the graded 
schools, and their attendance is reported by the grade teachers. 



REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS. 265 

In the manual training- sfhool during- 1()():!-1U04 tlii-c>e hundred and 
^ig-hteen pupils were enrolled and the average attentlanee was two 
hundred and seventy-three. During- the past term the enrollment has 
been three hundred and eleven, and the average attendance two hun- 
dred and eig-hty-one. 

This school is gradually increasing- in size and extending and per- 
fecting its course. Considerable work in iron is done. There is urgent 
need of increased accommodations for the machinery already in the 
building-, and also great need of more machinery. Before more can 
be done in metal work the school must have a seven-inch shaper and a 
ten-inch engine lathe. It also needs a small saw-table, or band saw. 

The reports of the board fail to show that any special appropriation 
for the purchase of machinery for this school has ever been made by 
the city councils. The total cost of machinery necessary to equip the 
school well would be four hundred and thirty-five dollars. It is to be 
hoped that the city government may grant this amoiint to forward the 
work in this department. 

The value of manual training has been dwelt upon at various times 
in these reports. JMore and more is it coming" to be recognized as a 
most essential element in the training of the young. If good for the 
pupils of the eighth and ninth years of school, why not beneficial for 
those of the six and seventh, and. in proper foi-m. for all the children 
through all the grades? 

The seat work of primary pupils is merely a form of manual train- 
ing adapted to their capabilities. It should include weaving, basketry, 
sewing, and finally terminate in manual training as now taught in 
our schools. 

KIXDEKGARTEX. 

The present month completes the first year of the public kinder- 
garten in the Spring-street building. 

During the first half of the year forty-six children were enrolled, and 
the average membership was twentj-six. During the second half of 
the year the enrollment was thirty-six, and the average membership 
was thirty-four. It would seem from these figures that the parents of 
children in this section are becoming- more appreciative of the benefits 
of this school, certainly they are sending their children more freely. 
A continued growth in the school, it is to- be hoped, will bear out this 
conclusion. 

The school is in charg'e of two most excellent teachers whose whole 
time is devoted to their work. The liomes of the children are visited, 
parents are conferred with, and every effort made to accomplish all of 
the good that may be accomplished through a kindergarten. Not the 
least, as a means of contributing to this good, are the mothers' meet- 
ings, held monthly in the schoolroom. These take the form of an 
afternoon te^. The mothers of the children attend well, discuss the 
children and their aptitudes, and some of them have become interested 
rcfidei's of kindergarten literature. 



26Q ANNUAL OFFICIAL KEPOKTS. 

The regular kinderg-arteii eoiirse is two years in lei'igth. ( hildreii 
who enter the school should be expected to complete this course before 
passing- to the primary school. It is a detriment to the children and 
to the kindergarten to allow too brief an attendance and then admit 
the children to the primary grades of school. 

The influence of the kindergarten's presence is to be seen upon every 
school in the building. 

1 suggest that during the coming year another Ivindergarten be 
opened in the Parker school building. There is ample room for such 
a school, and I believe one could be easily filled from the Parker and 
\'aniey districts. The city has upon hand a quantity of kindergarten 
furniture donated to it by the Manchester Kindergarten Association at 
the time when that association went out of existence. 

COOKING. 

It will be remembered that for some years the boys of certain grades 
in grammar schools were allowed to take manual training lessons, 
while no special provision was made for the employment of the girls 
of the same rooms. Finally, in the year 1900, provision was made for 
and a course established in sewing. Prior to that time, sewing had 
been taught, but the work had been desultory without uniform plan 
and not compulsory. 

During these years Miss Ella F. Parker of the Hallsville school con- 
ceived the idea of dividing the time of the girls between sewing and 
cooking. One half of the class cooked, the other half sewed. The 
plan of doing some cooking in the Hallsville school has been adhered 
to up to the present time. Eecently Miss Barker was desirous of 
learning something of the results of 'her labor in this matter of cook- 
ing, and addressed a circular letter to each of her girl g-raduates, ask- 
ing what good, if any, they had received from the course in cooking. 
By permission of Miss Barker, I give extracts from five of the replies. 

The first inipil says: 

"I was benefited in a great many difl-'erent ways — such as to be accu- 
rate in measuring, separating the yolks and whites of eggs, always to 
beat a cake the same way While mixing. Our mothers were benefited 
by them, or, at least, mine was, because I used to be anxious to try the 
different dishes at home." 

The second says: 

"Throug-h your careful training I learned to be saving. 1 well i-e- 
member the day when you asked the girls to clean ;ill tlic albumen 
from the egg shells. Since then I have always done the same. Then 
you always made us wash our hands before we commenced to cook, 
which made us neat, and I never forget it. Your measures for cooking 
were also very instructive. Another good idea and one that everyone 
ought to follow — about keeping the hands away from the hair and 
eyes while cooking. 1 never failed to notice that you were very strict

t)ii lliat nik'. All the chiinci- I ever had to cook was in the iiublic 
school." 

X umber tliree: 

This young- lady left the city and moxfd to Boston, where she was 
regularly instructed in cooking in the public schools of that city, and 
she institutes some comparisons not wholly favorable to her new resi- 
dence. She says in part: "Tlie cooking- as taught in the Hallsville 
school was more helpful to me than that taug-ht in Boston. I learned 
more by being obliged to cook a dish myself. I was also reminded of 
economy. Cooking is of great value especialh' to those girls who would 
otherwise not have the least idea of cooking. One does not learn much 
from the cooking- lessons taught here. Each pupil is given one part to 
do without any knowledge of how the rest of the dish is made. By 
that I mean one girl beats the eggs, another sifts the dry ingredients, 
etc. Another fault is the extravagance. For instance, if a -white of 
an egg is called for and the pupil does not separate white and yolk 
successfully the first time, she is told to try until she does succeed. 
If she were cooking at home and eggs were high this would be im- 
practicable. To make cooking lessons of any benefit to a pupil econ- 
omy should be taught and more time spent on plain dishes." I have 
given the last letter somewhat fully for the sake of the economy idea 
which it emphasizes. 

Number fonr saj-s: 

"The first summer after I graduated I got mj^ own meals while my 
folks were away. I took all my recipes from my school books." 

Number five, writing- from San Bernadino, Cal., says: 

"I think the lessons in cooking were excellent. I have derived much 
benefit from them. Yes, the lessons have been helpful to me. While 
mamma was in San Francisco, I did all the cooking and kept house, 
and had I not taken up cooking in school I should have not known how. 
I can cook a great many things, and am particularly fond of making 
bread, which older people have told me I could do better than they 
could. Every girl wants and needs to know how to cook. The les- 
sons taught the neatest and most economical way of cooking and liv- 
ing." 

I quote these letters because they emphasize the value of cooking 
as a study in the public schools. Miss Barker informs me that nearly 
all of the girls refer to the training in accuracy, neatness, and econ- 
omy, and express pleasure that the dishes were inexpensive and simply 
made. 

In the cooking- as done at the Hallsville school all of the ingredients 
are provided by the pupils. In some cases, each pupil brings one sub- 
stance, as for instance, fiour or a quart of milk, in which case she is 
given credit for the value of the contribution. In the case of milk 
she would be credited with six cents. In the case of a pupil who j)ro- 
vides all of the ingredients for a dish no account is made of the cost. 



268 ANNUAL OFFICIAL ItFl'OKTS. 

and the jjupil takes home the result of her hibors. The record for the 
past term shows that it has cost each pupil less than one cent for each 
lesson, and Miss Barker is of the opinion that classes could be con- 
ducted by a city at a cost of not over three cents per pnpil for each 
lesson. This would mean a cost of $L14 for a period of two years, 
provided that sewing- and cooking' were carried on simultaneously. 
Cooking is of infinitely greater importance than sewing and ante- 
dates it by a considei-able f)ei'iod in the history of evolution. I would 
urge upon you. gentlemen, fhe wisdom of teaCiiing cooking in the piib- 
lic schools. 

XATIRE. &T11)V. 

The course in nature study as laid down for the public schools In- 
cludes topics in plant studj', in mineralog-y and geology, in physics and 
bird study. These syllabi are excellent and helpful. The aim of the 
course is to develop the senses, train the ])ower of observation, enable 
the ]iupil to draw inferences and foi-m correct judgments, while caus- 
ing him to be alive to the beauty, adaptability, and utility of nature by 
whicli he is surrounded, but of which he frequently knows all too 
little. It is expected that the pupil shall be led to deal with nature 
herself at first hand, that his work in a great measure s'hall be done 
independently, for thus only can the desired end be obtained. 

(iood as are these syllabi and as instructive as are these facts learned, 
there is still another form of nature study and nature work which is 
quite as developing and far more utilitarian in its results. It is the 
school garden. It need interfere in no way with present nature study. 
The movement to establish these gardens is widespread. Numerous 
illustrated articles in different magazines have appeared upon the 
subject. .-Vll of you are more or less familiar with the matter. It is 
perfectly practicable to have a school garden in connection with nearly 
every school in the city. The expense would be very small and Avould 
arise cQiiefly in dressing and plcnving the land. 

During the past year, :Mr. Winch, the mastei' of the N'arney .school, 
started such a garden. The street and park commission prepared the 
land, and for this due public acknowledgment is now made. No dress- 
ing was available. The results were such that Mr. Winch is encouraged 
to make another attempt in the spring, 'i'lie nunu'.rous city stables 
could easily furnish dressing for these gardens, and the expense of 
plowing would be very small. I am assured that otiiei' masters would 
make the same attempt could the land be put in condition for raising 
the crop. T trust that with the opening of spring this board will make 
provision for gardens in connection with such schools as desire the 
same.

Towne of ward throe. 

Mr. Phelps was first elected a member of the school board from ward 
eight in 1878. He served continuously until 1885, a period of seven 
years, when his removal from the ward caused his retirement from 
the board. Elected again front ward three in 1890 he commenced a 
second term in 1891, and has since served continuously till the present 
time, completing in all a period of twenty-one years. During this 
time he has been a 'member of twenty-six different committees and 
has presided as chairman of the following: Piscataquog school, salaries, 
fuel and heating, attendance, Ash-street and Webster's Mills schools, 
and training school. The chairmanshij) of the Ash-street school has 
extended over a period of fourteen years. 

Dr. George D. Towne was first elected to this board from ward seven 
and served the term 1883-1884. He then removed to ward three and 
in 1890 was again chosen its representative upon the schoiol board and 
has served since then continuously until the present time, making in 
all a total of sixteen years of service in the cause of education. During 
this time he has been chairman of the committee upon examination 
of teachers, that upon health, Spring-street and Lowell-street schools, 
Webster-street and Blodget-street schools, drawing, high school, and 
text-books. Dr. Towne has also served as a member of ten other sub- 
committees. 

Mr. Elliot C. Lambert was elected a member of this body in 1895, to 
fill the unexpired term of Mr. Walter H. Lewis. His term of service 
has covered a period of ten yeai's lacking- a few months. Mr. Lambert 
has served as clerk of the board for five and one-half years, has been 
a member of thirteen sub-committees, and served as chairman of the 
followdng: Finance, music. Spring-street and Lowell-street schools, and 
the training school. The chairmanship of the last has covered a 
period of eig-ht years. 

Mr. E. Emmet Walsh has served the community four terms from the 
date of his first election in the fall of 1894. He has been a. member of 
fifteen different committees and chairman of three, music. Main-street 
school, and the Hallsville school. 

Mr. John T. Kelley has served the city four terms as representative 
from ward five. He has been a member of sixteen different commit- 
tees and chairman of these: salaries, Bakersville and Mosquito Pond 
schools, Lowell-street and Webster's Mills schools, and Spring-street 
school. 

Mr. Mark E. Harvey and Mr. Harry H. Burpee have represented their 
ward for a period of six years. They have served respectively iipon 
nine and eleven sub-committees. Mr. Harvey has been chairman of 
the committee upon salaries and of that upon Goffe's Falls school. 

Mr. Burpee has been chairman of the Pearl-street school, W'ebster- 
street and Stark schools, and of the committee upon fuel and heating.

roxci.rsiox. 

" I believe that the schools of the city are in excellent condition, that 
the average standard of work is high, higher perhajis than in other 
similar towns. The fact that this is so is due in greatest part to the 
character, progressiveness, and high ideals of the teacliing' body. 

In anv- school system the most important part of its course is com- 
prised in the first four or five years of the school life of the pupil. 
During this time his perceptions are keenest, quickest, hungriest. 
During this time is laid the foundation for his future mental power. 
A course of study and instruction that attempts to work the mera'ory 
chiefly is dulling to the intellect and deadening to future growth. 
Memory depends upon interest and attention. These are excited and 
maintained according as relations are established between the new 
and The old. The more relations there are established the more 
(luickiy, i-eadily, and firmly is the new material assimilated and the 
more does it contribute to gro\vth. Education should not be, real 
education cannot be, a knowing process merely. It should and must 
be a doing process as well as a knowing one. The power of initiative 
is developed only by doing. 

These reports have urged the extension of manual training in its 
various forms, the introduction of .cooking, the school garden, because 
these forms of instruction help to develop the power of initiative be- 
sides being utilitarian in their results. 

In conclusion I cannot forbear a word in relation to that most im- 
portant duty of the school board, the selection of teachers for the 
public schools. Upon the character and qualifications of the teacher 
does the efficiency of the school depend. Nothing can compensate for 
the lack of teaching and governing power on the part of the instructor. 
The sole consideration in electing teachers should be fitness for the 
position. I know that in the abstract every member of the board will 
assent to this proposition. 

FiTially, I thank the members of the board and the many citizens for 
their interest, assistance, and the uniform courtesy accorded the in- 
cumbent of this office. 

Kes])ect fully submitted.

Chief Engineer's Office, 
Cetsttral Station, No. 8 Vine Streei, , 

Manchester, N. H., December 31, 1904. 
To His Honor, Eugene E. Reed, Mayor, and Gentlemen of the City Councils: 

In compliance with the Laws and Ordinances of the city of Man- 
chester, I herewith submit my twenty-sixth annual report of the work 
performed by the Manchester fire department for the year ending 
December 31, 1904, it being the fifty-eighth of the city. 

The department has answered to two hundred and twelve (212) 
still alarms, and seventy-seven (77) bell alarms, making a total of 
two hundred and eighty-nine (289). 

Two (2) of the bell alarms have been "double alarms" and two (2) 
false alarms. One hundred and ten (110) have been chimneys burn- 
ing out, thirty-five (35) brush and grass fires, twenty-nine (29) city 
dumps, twelve (12) no fires, seven (7) thawing water pipes, one (1) 
incendiary. 

During the year the different companies have laid eighty-eight 
thousand and fifty (88,050) feet of hose, put up one thousand four hun- 
dred and forty-one (1,441) feet of ladders, used twenty-six (26) chemi- 
cal tanks, and one hundred and forty-eight (148) pony extinguishers. 

On the evening of June 21, in response to a telephone message, we 
sent Steamer No. 1, with hose wagon, horses, and a deleg-ation of men, 
to Candia Depot, where the two-story dwelling-house and barn of 
W. M. Lang were destroyed, and played upon the ruins two and one 
half hours, to prevent the flames spreading to adjoining property. 

I have endeavored to get the losses and insurance as correct as 
possible, and notwithstanding I have sent blanks for the returns of 
same (in some cases two and three times) some have even neglected 
after repeated requests, and in such cases I have estimated as nearly 
as I could and give as a summary of amount endangered, amount of 
insurance the property was insured for, the amount of insurance paid 
and the net losses, which are as follows: 

Value of buildings $225,100.00

THE BUILDINGS, 

As a general thing, are in poor condition, having received hardly any 
repairs of a permanent nature during the year, and have had such 
minor repairs as would "tide over," for the time being, and really 
require radical repairs to put them in decent shape. It seems im- 
perative that the Lake avenue station should be rearranged in such a 
manner that the steamer and truck can each be fitted with a three- 
horse hitch. An object lesson of a convincing nature was given at 
the time of the fire at (ieorge M. French's residence, Ta.ylor street, 
near Hollj- aventie, Sei^tember 27. ' 

THE APPARATUS 

Consists of 6 steam fire engines, 7 hose wagons (two combination chem- 
icals and one with ladders attached), 3 hose carriages with reels. 4 
hook and laddrr trucks (one an eightv-five foot aerial, carrying other 



REPORT OF TFIE FIRE ENOINEER. 297 

ladders), 1 supply wagon. 7 exercise wagons, 1 sjjai'e one-horse hose 
carriage, located as follows: 

Centbax, Station: Two first size Amoskeag steamers, with three- 
horse hitch, 2 one-horse hose wagons, 1 one-horse hose carriage, one 
aerial truck (three-horse hitch). 1 double (60 gallons) tank chemical 
engine, 1 supply wagon. 1 exercise wagon, 1 chief's wagon. 

NoivTii Main-Street Station: One second size Amoskeag steamer 
(three-horse hitch), 1 two-horse combination chemical and hose wagon, 
1 old U tank steamer in storage, 1 exercise Avag-on. 

Mc'(Jregoe.vii.le Station: One second size Amoskeag steamer, 1 one- 
horse hose carriage, 1 two-horse hook and ladder truck, 1 exercise 
wagon. 

Lake Avenue Station: One second size Amoskeag- steamer, 1 two- 
horse hose wagon, 1 two-horse hook and ladder truck, 1 exercise wagon, 
1 one-horse hose carriage in storage. 

Webster-Steeet Station: One third size Amoskeag steamer, 1 one- 
horse carriage, 1 two-horse hook and ladder truck, 1 exercise wagon. 

Maple-Street Station: One two-horse hose wagon, 1 exercise 
wagon. 

South Eem-Street Station: One two-horse combination hose wagon, 
carrying ladders, 1 exercise wagon, in very poor condition. 

Wilson Hill Station: One two-horse combination chemical and 
hose wagon. 

In addition to the foregoing there is 1 hose carriage in Amoskeag 
on Front street, 1 hose carriage corner Massabesic street and Mam- 
moth road (both volunteer companies), 1 two-wheeled hose carriage, 
Devonshire Mills, Goffe's Falls, 1 two-wheeled "jumper" in basement of 
W. P. Farmer's barn cellar. Candia road, corner Hanover street, 4 
sleds used as hose sleds in the winter, 1 repair wagon for tire-alarm 
telegraph. 

The new combination chemical and hose wagon was put into com- 
mission October 1, with two permanent and six call men, thus afford- 
ing the eastern portion of the city better protection from fire. 

Aside from repairs to the apparatus which naturally come from wear 
and tear. Engine IVo. 1, which has been in service about twenty-eight 
years, has received extensive repairs, having been supplied with new 
boiler of improved pattern, new and larger pumps, platform springs, 
its entire running gear repaired and newly painted, thus making it 
more eflficient than ever. 

Steamer No. 2 has had its wheels newly rimmed and a much heavier 
tire put on. 

The chemical engine has undergone thorough repairs and has been 
newly painted. 

The hose carriage of Engine Xo. 5 has had wheels repaired and been 
newly painted. 

'Hie exercise wagon at the Central Station collided with electric 
light pole (owing to the breaking of reins), demolishing it to such

an extent as to almost make a new wai^ou of it, by the repairs required 
to put it in serviceable condition. 

THE FIKE- ALARM TELEGRAPH. 

The storage battery must necessarily be replaced for a new one the 
coming- year. It is now on its seventh year of service, and unless early 
renewed may cause serious trouble. 

Maj' 4 a new fire-alarm box (Xo. Ci.'O was installed on Beech street, 
corner of Titus avenue. 

We have run about four (4) miles of new iron wire, changed five (.">) 
miles of copper to No. 9 iron wire, set sixteen (l(i) new poles, and 
reset ten (10). 

THE J10R,SES. 

This department owns forty-five (45) horses. Nine have been pur- 
chased during- the year, tw-o of which were for the new Combination 
No. 2 Company on Wilson Hill, and the other seven to replace old ones 
unfit for service. 

About the same number will be refpiired the coming year, to take 
the place of such as are naturally woi-n out by long service. 

CASUALTIES. 

In the prime of his manhood, death summoned hence ^Ir. A. C. 
Barker, an honest and upright man, a faithful and earnest fireman, a 
careful and experienced driver who, for about twenty years, had been 
a member of Engine Company No. ], and for the past fifteen years 
the driver of hose wagon of said company. His funeral was attended 
by the entire department on Sunday. May 29.

CONCLUSION. 

The imperative necessity foi- better protection of property in the 
southeastern section of the city compels me to call your very early 
attention to the urgent need of a steamer and hose wag-on for that 
part of the city, and I would recommend that a third size steam tire 
engine and two-hor^e combination chemical and hose wagon be lo- 
cated in the vicinity of Hall and Silver streets, as in this section quite 
a large amount of capital is invested in manufacturing industries; to 
wit: Elliott Manufacturing Company, McElwain Shoe Shop, Kimball 
Brothers Carriage Manufactory, F. M. Hoyt Shoe Company, and the 
Eureka Shoe Company, besides several large business and tenement 
blocks and many residential houses within easy access of the point 
mentioned for such a company, which are at present quite a distance 
from any apparatus, which to reach them must pass over very hard 
roads. 

I would recommend placing a new two-horse hose wagon in place of 
the one-horse hose carriage of Hose Company No. 1, as the afore- 
said hose carriage is in much need of extensiA'e repairs. Such a 
change would increase the efficiency of the department. 

I would recommend the piirchase of one thousand feet of double 
jacket knit hose, rubber lined. 

I ^vould also recommend two horses on all our hose wagons and 
carriages that are now drawn by one horse. 

I desire again to call attention to the necessity of store sheds being 
erected on the Wilson Hill lot, not only as a convenience, but as a 
matter of economy, for the storage of wagons, sleds, and other 
property. 

I desire to return my thanks to His Honor the Mayor and members 
of the city councils for such action on their part as has tended to 
increase the efficiency of the department, to officers and members of 
the police "force for their assistance, to the assistant engineers, offi- 
cers, and men for their prompt and willing- assistance at all times 
rendered. 

Respectfully submitted. 

THOMAS W. LANE, . 
Chief Fire Departmnnf.

municated to the nearest alarm box, tlie key of which is in a circular 
])o\ altaclied to tlie right side of the tire-alariii l)o\. Keys are also in 
the hands of ail regular police, and generally of ])ersoiis at the corner 
or nearest house. 

2. Keyholders and others, upon'the discovery of a fire, or positive in- 
formation of a fire, will unlock the box, pull down the hook once as far 
as it will go (without jerking), and then let go. Shut the door, but do 
not try to remove the ke^-, as it is locked in by a trap lock, and can 
only be removed with a release key, which is carried by each of the 
engineers, and they will, as soon as convenient, release and return it. 

H. All persons giving fire alarms are requested to remain by the box 
a moment, and if no clicking is heard in the box, pull again; if you still 
hear no clicking, go to the next nearest box and give an alarm from 
that. 

4. Never signal for fire seen at a distance. Never touch the box ex- 
cept to give an alarm of fire. Give an alarm for no other cause than 
actual fire. Don't give, an alarm fok a chimney fibe. 

5. Never let the keys go out of your possession unless called for by 
the chief engineer. If yon chanye ijour residence or place of business; where 
the keys are kept, return the keys to the same officer. 

6. Owners and occupants of buildings are requested to inform them- 
selves of the location of alarm boxes near their property; also all places 
where the keys are kept. Be sure the alarm is promptly and properly 
given. 

7. Alarms will be sounded upon all the fire-bells in the citj', and the 
number of the box will be given thus: Box 6, six blows, 214 seconds 
apart, repeated three times. Box 212, two blows, pause of 614 seconds, 
one blow, same pause, and two blows, 2 — 1 — 2, repeated three times. 

8. The engineers reserve the right to give one stroke of the bells at 
any time; and in case of testing the boxes, each test will be preceded 
by one stroke of the bells. 



Rules and Regulations in Regard to Responding to F're 
Alarms, etc. 

The following rules have been adopted by the board of engineers and 
the fire department will strictly comply- until otherwise ordered, and 
will attend alarms of fire as per official efnistlng caJsd. 

KUNNING RULES. 

Whenever an alarm is sounded, the members of all companies not 
called to that box will report to their res'iDective company quarters, and 
there remain until dismissed by the signal of the bells or by an engineer 
in charge. 



306 ANXTAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

In case companies on their tirst run have responded to an ahirni, com- 
panies on their second rnn to the box from which the ahirm has been 
sounded will answer all first-run boxes of the absent companies; and in 
case engines are out that would respond to another box, then third 
alarm companies will respond. In case of alarm from a box that does 
not call for a third alarm, companies on their second rnn will then 
answer to all other boxes. *

Owing- to the purchase of tive new street sprinklers, wlii<-li wcic de- 
livered early in Juh-, the department was able to materially impioxe 
upon the existing conditions in the line of street spi-inkling. 

With the addition of four other new sprinklers, which were pur- 
chased late in the fall, the department will be able to still finTher 
extend and improve the service. 

Two new cast iron combination wateriiig-trcuglis were placed as

AEW BUIDGE OVER THE CAXAL AT GKAXITE STREET. 

A permanent improvement was made by removing the old bridge 
from over the canal at Granite street and erecting in its place a 
modern steel structure with paved roadways and concrete sidewalks. 
The old bridge was eleven feet narrower than the street and was set 
at a very undesirable grade. The new bridge was built to the full 
width of the street and the grade was lowered to conform to the sur- 
rounding conditions. It was found necessary to completely rebuild 
the abutments. The old bridge was stored in a vacant lot near the 
west end of Granite street. West ^Manchester. It is expected in the 
near future, that the old bridge will be erected over the tracks of the 
North Weare Branch of the Boston & Maine Kailroad, at Granite street. 
West Manchester. 

The commissioners believe that the improvements made on Granite 
street will meet the approval of every citizen.

The natural advantages and beauties of tliis .])avk are so well known 
tliat no description of them is necessary at this time. 

The careful expenditiire of the small amount of money appropriateil 
for this large tract of land is slowly but surely making itself manifest. 
The policy of the commissioners is that of making- some additional 
and permanent improvement each j^ear. Hpecial attention was given to 
the lawns in the eastern half of the park; the grass was kept carefully 
cut and new trees and shrubs were planted in conspicuous places. Six 
hirge flower beds were maintained during the summer months. Early 
next season a sidewalk will be built along the entire Kiver road side 
of the |jark and edgestones and circles, which were ]3urehased late 
tliis fall, will be set and the gutters cobble paved. This will make a 
permanent im])rovement that \vill be greatly apjireciated by all visitors 
to the x^ark. 

At the recpiest of the members of the Molly Stark Chapter. Daugh- 
ters of the American Revolution, the main avenue, leading into the pai-k 
from the River road side, was named The Daughters of the American 
Kevolution avenue, and trees which were furnished by the society were 
planted upon each side of the above-named avenue. 

Four caniuui, the same being properly mounted, were placed on 
tlie lawn near the River road entrances.

Karly next spring the diamond on the ball ground will be graded 
and put in proper shape for use. Suitable mounts have been pur- 
chased and two cannon will ))e moiintcil on the brow of the hill over- 
looking the city. 

Several properh" constructed sidewalks are badly needed and pro- 
visions are being made for their construction at an early date. 

A considerable portion of the land in the upper grove is rendered 
■useless on account of its swampj^ nature, and an effort is to be made 
to reclaim it l)y tilling and pi'ojier drainage.

Sewer Licenses. 

At a meeting of the board of maj'or and aldermen, November 19, 
1897, the city engineer was instruct-ed "to examine the books in his 
office and present to said board a list of property owners who had 
neglected to pay the license fee required bj' the city laws and ordi- 
nances for entrance to the city sewers." 

The records were examined and a list compiled giving the names of 
the property owner, the location of the lot, the street frontage, and 
the license fee due upon each and every piece of occupied property 
within one hundred feet of a public sewer. 

The said list was given in hand to the city clerk, as clerk of the board 
of mayor and aldermen. 

The list comprised 1,017 names, and a notice was sent each one by 
the city clerk. A summarized statement of the ground covered to 
January 1, 1905, follows, viz.:

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE CITY 
LIBRARY. 



To ilie City Councils of the City of Manchester: 

The Trustees of the City Library herewith submit their fifty-first 
annual report of the affairs of the library, and with the same the 
report made to them by the treasurer of the board, containing an ac- 
count of the sums received and the expenditures made by him in be- 
half of the board from the funds in their possession and under their 
control. 

The treasurer reports the amount expended for the purchase of 
books during the past year to have been the sum of fourteen hundred 
and sixty-four dollars and seventy-one cents, and for the purchase of 
periodicals the sum of one hundred and eighty-eight dollars and thirty- 
three cents, a total expenditure for both of these purposes of sixteen 
hundred and fifty-three dollars and four cents. 

Of the amount expended for the purchase of books the sum of one 
hundred and eighteen dollars and ninety-one cents was used for the 
purchase of books to replace those worn out and withdrawn from cir- 
culation, and the sum of four hundred and thirty-eight dollars and 
twenty-four cents was taken from the income of the Dean fund and 
applied for the purchase of books for that department of the library. 
Exclusive of these two amounts, the sum expended for the purchase of 
new books was nine hundred and seven dollars and fifty-six cents, 
leaving a balance in the hands of the treasurer at the close of the 
year, of the amounts appropriated by the city councils for the purchase 
of books, of nine hundred and sixteen dollars and seventy-six cents. 

The balances of the accumulated income of the several funds under 
the control of the trustees at the close of the year were as follows: 

Dean fund $8,330.28 

Mary E. Elliot fund 1,826.78 

Eliza A. Eaton fund 973.18 

During the year one hundred and eighty-five volumes were purchased 
from the income of the Dean fund at a cost, as stated above, of four 
hundred and thirty-eight dollars and twenty-four cents. 

As the city councils have not as yet made suitable provision for the 
shelving and care of books pertaining to medicine separate from the 
books purchased for general circulation, "the trustees did not deem it 
expedient to make purchases from the Mary E. Elliot fund. 



465 



466 ANNUAL OFFICIAL PvEPORTS. 

The incidental expenses for the past year have been six thousand 
one hundred and sixty-one dollars and fiftj'-six cents. As the amount 
appropriated by the city councils for incidental expenses was five 
thousand eight hundred and twenty dollars, the expenditures show an 
excess over the amount appropriated for the year of three hundred 
and forty-one dollars and fifty-six cents. 

The items of the incidental expenses may be found in detail in the 
annual report of the city, the bills for the same having been paid by 
the cit3' treasurer, upon the approval of the trustees, from the sum 
appropriated for the library by the city councils. 

During the year the library has been open for the delivery of books 
three hundred and seven days, for which period the number of books 
delivered for home use was sixty-seven thousand six hundred and 
seventy, an average of about two hundred and twenty per day. In ad- 
dition to the number delivered for general circulation twenty-eight 
thousand three hundred and thirty-three books were delivered for use 
at the reading-room, an average of about ninety-two per day. The 
total number of books delivered for general circulation and for use 
at the reading-room during the year was ninety-six thousand and three, 
an average of about three hundred and twelve per day. As compared 
with the year previous, the circulation for home use shows a decrease 
of six thousand seven hundred and seven, and the niimber for use at 
the reading-room a decrease of two thousand three hundred and thirty- 
one. The total circulation was nine thousand and thirty-eight less 
than the year preceding. The above figures do not include books de- 
livered for use at the library on Sundays. 

The reading-room at the library has been open to the public each 
Sunday during the year, from eleven o'clock in the forenoon to five 
o'clock in the afternoon. The expense attending the same, exclusive 
of heating and lighting, being two hundred and seventy dollars and 
seventy-five cents. The attendance from adults, whose occupations pre- 
vented them from using the library on week days and for whose bene- 
fit the opening of the library on Sundays was intended, has been 
quite small. The total attendance during the year was three thou- 
sand nine hundred and ninety-four, of which number six hundred and 
four were men, two hundred and one were women, and three thou- 
sand one hundred and eighty-nine were children. The average at- 
tendance per Sunday was about eleven and a half for men, nearly four 
for women, and about sixty-one for children. The total average 
attendance was a little over seventy-six per Sunday. The total num- 
ber of volumes delivered at the reading-room for the fifty-two Sun- 
days was seven thousand eight hundred and sixty- two, the larger por- 
tion of such books being works suitable for the age of the children 
in attendance. 

The number of volumes in the library at the date of the last report, 
including maps and ]nimphlets, was lif'ly tiioiisand one liundrcil and 
fifty-two.. There have been added during the year l)y purchase seven 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE CITY LIBRARY. -467 



hiindred aiid four volumes; by donation, six hundred and thirtj- vol- 
umes, and two hundred volumes of periodicals have been bound, a total 
of fifteen hundred and thirty-four, making- the number of bound vol- 
umes in the library at the close of the year fifty thousand nine hundred 
and sixty-eight, and the total number, including sixteen maps and 
seven hundred and two pamphlets, fifty-one thousand six hundred and 
eighty-six. 

The number of books rejjorled lost (luring- the year was fort3f-one, the 
largest number lost in any one previous year. With the present sys- 
tem of delivering and charging books now in use at the library, which 
is supposed to account for every book, it is difficult to assign any rea- 
son for the loss of so large a number of volumes, unless the placing 
of books for examination in shelves outside of the delivery desk, as 
has been done for the past two, years, may have caused such loss. If 
such losses continue, the trustees will deem it necessary to withdraw 
this privilege of inspection of new accessions and remove all books to 
the shelves behind the delivery counter. 

The number of volumes withdrawn from circulation during the year, 
on account of their worn and defaced condition, was four hundred 
and forty-eight. Of this number, and of others retired from circula- 
tion in previous years for the same reason, or had been lost, one 
hundred and thirty-four have been replaced during the year at a cost 
of one hundred and eighteen dollars and ninety-one cents. 

One hundred and eight different periodicals have been regularly re- 
ceived at the library during the j'ear, of which number sixty-nine 
were purchased and thirty-nine were donated, and on completion of 
the various volumes the same have been bound and placed on the 
shelves at the library for circulation. 

During the year a catalogue of books in the library relating to his- 
tory, geography, and travels was prepared and arranged from the card 
catalogue by the librarian and her assistants, and the same was pub- 
lished at the close of the year. It is hoped that the printing of this 
catalogue may prove of service to the patrons of the library and espe- 
cially to those who do not have the opportunity to use the card cata- 
logue at the library, or who prefer to make their selection of books 
for reading at their homes. 

Accompanying this report will be found the names of all those who 
have made donations to the library during the year, with the number 
of books or periodicals presented by each person. Proper acknowl- 
edgment has been made in behalf of the city to all w^ho have in this 
ma'nner manifested their interest in the prosperity of the library. 

The librarian. Miss F. Mabel Winchell, and her assistants have con- 
tinued to fulfil the duties of their respective positions with consci- 
entious effort to increase the usefulness of the library. 

The trustees return their acknowledgments to the members of the 
city councils for the courtesy and consideration with which their sug- 
gestions relating to the library have been received.

LIBRAEIAN'S EEPORT. 



To the Trustees of the City Library, Maiichestir, N. H.: 

Gentlemen: — The fifty-first annual report of the citj- library is here- 
with presented. 

The statistics for the year will be found as usual in the tables at 
the close of this report. The recommendations made in last year's 
report might well be repeated this year with added emphasis, for the 
needs grow more urgent each year. Insufficient room and inadequate 
funds have restricted the growth of the library and have prevented 
not only the undertaking of many new lines of desirable activity, but 
also have lessened its efficiency in those already imdertaken. 

The need of a separate room for the children or, to take another 
point of view, the need of a room for adults where they may read or 
study in quiet is the pressing need of the time. The lack of such a 
room I believe has materially lessened the adult attendance. I would, 
therefore, respectfullj' urge that all due means be employed to obtain 
such a room in the near future. Meanwhile an additional assistant is 
greatly needed for the reading-room, to maintain order, insure proper 
handling of books by the children, and assist any who may need help 
about finding the books they desire. 

CIBCULATION. 

The circulation has again fallen oflf, presumably from the same 
causes as given last year. It has been said that "A decrease in circu- 
lation is an indication of 'an increase in satisfaction," meaning that 
when f)eople secure the books they want thej^ keep them for thorough 
reading, while if they fail to find what they desire and take some book 
as a substitute, they are very apt to exchange it soon, not caring to 
read it through. This increases the circulation without a cori-espond- 
ing Increase in reading. There is doubtless some truth in this view, 
but I think it is not sufficient to account for the drop in our circula- 
tion. The use of the study pockets, however, may have had its effect 
along this line. Formerly, when a person borrowed a book for pur- 
poses of study, he was obliged to bring it to the library every two 
weeks to have it recharged. Now a person may keep such a book 
several months without recharging, if he needs it and no other bor- 
rower wishes it. This, while far more satisfactory to the borrower, 
makes a decided difference in the number of issues recorded at the 
library. But as the library exists for the purpose of serving its 
patrons and not for the making of statistics, we see no reason for re- 
turning to the old way. 

473 



474 ANNUAL OFFICIAL KErORTS. 



CATALOGLUNG. 

In addition to the classification and cataloguing of the new books, 
as added to the library, the analj'tical work in the class of literary 
history has been continued and practically finished. The card cata- 
logue has also been improved by the addition of many needed cross 
references. 

The part of the library which still remains uncatalogued is the col- 
lection of public documents. For many years librarians have looked 
forward to the time when the government would do this work, feeling 
sure that sooner or later it would be undertaken by one of the depart- 
ments at Washington, and would then be better done than the average 
library' could possibly do it. In March, 1904, the first installment of 
such cards was received from the Superintendent of Public Documents. 
This marks an epoch in the history of librarj' progress worthy of com- 
parison with the sale of the Library of Congress catalogue cards, which 
have found such a welcome the country over. 

FINDING LIST. 

The work on the finding list of the classes of History and Geog- 
raphy, which was begun last year, was continued during the first part 
of this year and completed early in May. In the fall it "was given to the 
printer after having been made to include all accessions in these classes 
prior to December 1, 1904. It has been printed with linotype and will 
make a volume of one hundred and eighty odd pages. 

WOKN-OUT BOOKS. 

Dr. Edward Everett Hale has said, "The greatest credit to a library 
is its ability to report at the end of the year that a large number of 
its books have been worn out in clear and honest service." Much 
credit, according to this, is due to our library, for four hundred and 
fortj^-eight books have been discarded during the year as too bad for 
further use. Only one hundred and thirty-four volumes have been 
replaced, making a net loss to the library of three hundred and four- 
teen volumes. A good proportion of these were the works of standard 
or popular authors which are constantly in demand, and the lack of 
which naturally affects the circulation. It is greatly to be hoped that 
the appropriation for the coming j'ear will permit of a much more 
liberal replacing of the worn-out books. 

INVENTORY. 

The inventory taken this year shows forty-one books unaccounted 
for. This is a much smaller number than reported last year. One 
book mis.sing in 1902 and two in 1903 have reappeared, as will, prob- 
ably, some of those missing this year. While it is always to be re- 
gretted that there are any books which cannot be found, I believe 
the librarian of the St. Louis Public Library is correct when he says. 



IIEPORT OF THE TliUSTKKS OF THE CITY LIBIIAKV. 475 

-Tlie number of bouks lost could be very greatly reduced by various 
precautions, which, however, would cost as much or more than the 
value of the books, and by restrictions which would be irksome to 
the public and drive away many honest readers and seekers for in- 
formation." '• 

EXHIBITIONS. 

The exhibitions of loan collections of pictures have continued 
through another year. Eleven exhibits have been shown during the 
year, namely: 100 specimens from the herbarium of the Dover (N. H.) 
Public Library, 50 photographs of foreign art and architecture, 10 
Elson prints on Greek sculpture, 60 colored plates of the New York 
State Forest, Fish, and Game Commission, 56 mounts of bird pictures, 
76 pictures of colonial furniture from volume 1 of Singleton's "Furni- 
ture of our forefathers," poster exhibit, 79 colored pictures of Russia, 
23 colored views of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, 76 pictures of 
colonial furniture from volume 2 of Singleton's "Furniture of our fore- 
fathers," 100 views of New England scenery photographed by the Bos- 
ton & Maine Railroad. 

Many expressions of appreciation and pleasure have been heard in 
connection with these exhibits, and there seems no doubt that they 
are enjoyed by the patrons of the library. Many libraries now 
count such exhibits as an important part of their work, believing 
that books and pictures should go hand in hand. An organization 
known as the Library Art Club exists for the purpose of collecting 
and loaning to libraries groups of pictures nicely mounted and labeled 
ready for exhibition. Membership in this club costs libraries five 
dollars a year, and I would resijectfully suggest that that amount of 
money could hardly be spent in a way to afford the patrons of the 
library more pleasure or profit than would be gained from such col- 
lections of pictures. 

SCHOOLS. 

The amount of work with the schools has remained about the same 
as for the past few years. It is noticed that some of the teachers 
prefer the study pocket plan of taking out books to that of the school 
arrangement, so the number of books issued to teachers on school 
jDockets fails to show the true number taken to the schools. It makes 
little difference under which sj'stem they are taken as long as they 
serve the purpose for which they were bought. 

Two talks were given to the schools this year: one to the eighth 
and ninth grades of the Hallsville school on "The story of a book," 
describing how a book is made; the other to the sixth and seventh 
grades of the Ash-street school on the use of the library. 

SUNDAYS. 

The use of the library on Sundays shows an even larger increase than 
that of last year. The total attendance in 1903 was 2,770, while for 1904 



476 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

it was 3,994. The number of acUilts remains ])raetically the same, the 
increase being found among the children. On stormy or very cold 
days they come in very large numbers; so much so, indeed, that in 
spite of assembling all the furniture the library possesses, on one or 
two occasions some have had to sit upon the floor. Here again is 
shown the imperative need of another room. Doubtless the reason the 
adult attendance has not increased is that the room is not conducive 
to quiet reading or comfortable breathing when crowded with the 
class of children that comes. That the city should provide some place 
for the boys and girls who otherwise Avould doubtless be upon the 
streets would seem to be a matter of good policy, if looked at from 
no other point of view. Those who spend their time upon the streets 
are likelj' to be an expense to the city sooner or later. The average 
attendance for the summer months was thirty, while for the rest of 
the year it was ninety-two, that is, less than one third as many people 
came during the warm weather as did through the rest of the year. 
This is practically the same proportion (thirty-two per cent) as came 
in the summer of the previous year. The smallest attendance was 
twenty on the first Sunday of August; the largest was two hundred 
and seventy-seven on the second Sunday of December, and of the lat- 
ter number only fourteen were adults. Forty per cent of the adult 
attendance for the year was between the hours of eleven and one, 
while onl}' twenty-eight per cent of the juvenile attendance was be- 
tween these hours. This again would indicate that there are people 
who would avail themselves of the advantages which the library offers 
were separate rooms provided for adults and for children. 



The donations this year have again been most generous. In spite of 
the large number of magazines recorded as given last year the number 
this j^ear is almost one thousand in excess of that, while the pamphlets 
received are just about double those of last year. We are thus grad- 
ually increasing the size and value of our collection of periodicals with- 
out expense to the library. There are some desirable periodicals, how- 
ever, which we are quite unlikely to obtain except bj' purchase. 

THE NEWSPAPERS. 

Many thanks are due to the local daily papers for their courtesy in 
printing the various library notices and lists of books which have ap- 
peared from time to time. Until the library shall issue a bulletin, the 
newspapers are the only available means of communication between 
the library and the people. Their services in this particular have been 
much appreciated by the library and I believe also by the public. 

I wish at this time to express my appreciation of the good work 
done by the staff during the year, and of the interest shown by the 
trustees. 

Respectfully submitted, 

F. MABEL WINCHELL, 

lAbrarinn.

EEPORTS OF THE TRUSTEES OF CEMETERIES 
AND CEMETERY FUNDS. 



To the Trustees of Cemeteries and Board of Mayor and Aldermen: 

GENTI.EMEN: — By direction of the sub-trustees of the Pine Grove 
femeterj- I submit their report for the year 1904 as follows: 

The g-eneral work of caring- for the grounds has, during the year, 
been carried on in the customary manner under the superintendence 
of John H. Erskine, and the sub-trustees believe the work has been 
well done, and in the absence of complaint to them they feel that 
the management has been satisfactory to the citizens for whom they 
act. 

During- the year quite a number of pieces of important work, per- 
manent in their character, have .been done. East of Chapel lawn 
quite a large tract intended for lots to be sold under perpetual care 
was graded and left ready to be seeded in the spring. A new section 
of Hillside lawn north of that first prepared was graded and completed 
for use. The border east of Hillside lawn, for a space of two hundred 
feet in length, was graded and grassed. A section of the grounds 
south of Chessom avenue, composed of some of the oldest lots, which 
had been unsightly in appearance, was uniformly graded and the 
paths filled up, and a great improvement was thus made. This last 
work was made possible by the aijpropriation of six hundred dollars for 
the purpose out of the perpetual care fund by the trustees of the ceme- 
tery fund, to whom the thanks of the sub-trustees and of .the public 
are due therefor. 

During the year the average number of men employed was fifteen. 

Sewer pipe was laid to the extent of 500 feet and two cesspools 
and manholes were set. The number of interments was 255 and of 
removals, 14. During the year 39 new monuments were erected, 468 
ordinary lots, the owners of which paid for the work, and 508 lots 
under perpetual care were properly cared for. As the cemetery 
grows the work of earing for the grounds inevitablj' increases, and 
the appropriation for the purpose must gradually increase, because 
under the existing arrangement the total expense must be kept 
within the appropriation. However, the receipts from the sale and 
care of lots and for water furnished grow correspondingly, and, 
although it may seem from the enlarged appropriation that the actual 
cost of the cemetery to the city is constantly growing, it should be 
borne in mind that the owners of lots and the perpetual care fund 
constantly pay an increasing amount for water and care of lots, 
which make up the largest items of expense. As against the $10,000 

489 



490 ANNUAL OFFICIAL KEPORTS. 

appropriation for 1904, an item of sixty cents remaining- unexpended, 
the receipts were $7,644.40, leaving the net actual cost to the taxpayers 
for the year only $2,355 for the ordinary running expenses of the cem- 
etery and all improvements except the greenhouse. 

During the year 69 lots were sold: 14 on Riverside lawn, 8 on Chapel 
lawn, 9 on Pine lawn, 1 on Acacia lawn, 35 on Hillside lawn, 1 on 
Woodside lawn, and 1 on Swedish lawn. There remain unsold 13 lots 
on Eiverside lawn, 9 on Chapel lawn, 1 on Pine lawn, 3 on Acacia lawn, 
and 56 on Hillside lawn, besides the single grave section. 

In 1904 the city councils voted an extra appropriation of $1,500 for 
building a greenhouse. This sum was expended in building and equip- 
ping a greenhouse which partly fills a long-felt want. The building 
is finelj' constructed and the steam plant more than ample, and every 
available foot of space is now in use. An extension or addition is 
needed, and is one of the things which the sub-trustees hope to be able 
to construct out of the appropriation for 1905. 

In addition to the ordinary expenses of caring for the grounds, 
considerable work was made necessary by the building of Ursula 
chapel, which was paid for out of the regular appropriation. The 
cellar was excavated, pipes laid from the highways for the electric 
light and telephone wires, and various other things made necessary bj' 
the construction of the chapel were done. 

It was stated in our report for 1903 that the committee having in 
charge of the building of the Ursula chapel had selected a plan and 
that bids were to be received soon after the making of the report. As 
a result of the bidding the contract for the erection of the building 
was awarded to the Head & Dowst Company of Manchester, and dur- 
ing the 3'ear the building has been nearly completed and will be 
ready for acceptance very early in 1905. The chapel is of the Norman 
style of architecture, combining a chapel, a waiting room, and a super- 
intendent's office, thus making an arrangement of a building which the 
sub-trustees believe carries out the ideas of the donor and makes the 
structure one of great usefulness in the management of the grounds, as 
well as an object of beauty. The provisions of the will of Miss Fanny 
E. A. Riddle, who bequeathed to the city the $15,000 with which to con- 
struct the chapel, have been carried out to the letter. Her body and 
that of her mother have been placed in crypts at the right of the altar, 
and all inscriptions provided for have been placed in the proper places. 
The ideas of Miss Kiddle regarding the uses of tlie chapel, as she ex- 
pressed them many times during her lifetime to those who were then 
in charge of the grounds, are thought to have been realized, and no 
better monument to Miss Riddle and her mother could, in the opinion 
of the sub-trustees, be erected than this building, which will be a per- 
petual reminder of the thoughtfulness and generosity of Miss Riddle 
in making her bequest. 

Respectfully submitted,

COMMITTEE ON CITY FARM. 



EEPOET OF THE COMMITTEE ON CITY FARM. 

To tlie Board, of Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Manch€Ster: 

Gentlemen: — The committee on city farm and house of correction 
hereby submit their annual report for the year ending December 31, 
1904. 

INVENTORY. 

On December 30, 1904, the committee made an inventory of the farm 
and found the personal property of the house, barn, and other build- 
ings to be as follows: 

12 cows $540.00 

1 bull 30.00 

5 yearlings 125.00 

1 2-year-old 35.00 

2 calves 30.00 

$760.00 

Horses, hogs, and fowls 2,142.00 

Hay, grain, and produce 4,182.50 

Wagons, carts, and team furnishings 1,535.75 

Farming implements 1,134.50 

Household goods 3,212.13 

Provisions and fuel 1,000.00 

Total $13,966.88 

EECEIPTS AND EXPENDITUEES. 

On the same date the committee approved the books of the farm and 
the financial statement was found to be as follows: 

Scavenger service $2,000.00 

Other sources 2,320.02 

Bills receivable 174.60 

$4,494.62 

Paid city treasurer $4,320.02 

Bills receivable 174.60 

$4,494.62 

Appropriation $8,500.00 

Transferred from money unappropriated 394.99 

$8,894.99 

509 ' 



510 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

By cash receipts $4,320.02 

bills receivable 174.60 

permanent improvements 800.00 

balance 3,600.37 

$8,894.99 

Total expenditures $8,894.99 

Total receipts 4,320.02 

Cost of maintaining farm, exclusive of permanent 
improvements and bills receivable $4,574.97 

PERKiANETfT IMPBOVEMENTS. 

The committee has followed the usual custom and estimated the 
permanent improvements for the year and find the same, with the 
value thereof, to be as follows: 

Blasting- and clearing two-acre pasture east of house and digging 
and removing stones from same. Improvement estimated at three 
hundred dollars. 

Digging fifteen hundred feet of ditch, 4x5 feet. Improvement esti- 
mated at two hundred dollars. 

Cleaning four acres of wood and brush from swamp east of house. 
Improvement estimated at two hundred dollars. 

Laying stone and cement floor three feet deep in henhouse and 
raising and repairing the building. Improvement estimated at one 
hundred dollars. 

For many years the farm has been overrun with rodents, and 
the special point of attack has been the henhouse. 

We feel that the time and money expended for this improvement 
will amply repay the city in the years to come. 

OTHER IMPROVEMENTS. 

During the year the usual repairs were made about the buildings 
and in addition thereto a new hard-wood floor was laid in the sitting- 
room by the farm help, the cost being forty dollars for the lumber. 
The steam pipes in the cellar were replaced by new ones at a cost of 
• one hundred dollars. 

CROPS RAISED DURING THE YEAR. 

Ninety bushels of beets, 299 bushels of carrots, 1,160 bushels of 
potatoes, 108 bnshels of onions, 186 bushels of mangolds, 384 bushels 
of turnips, 1,088 bushels of corn, 18 barrels of beans, 90 tons of hay, 
10 tons of hay (second crop), 12 tons of meadow hay, 20 tons of corn 
stalks, 20 tons of straw, rye and oats, 250 barrels of apples, pears, and 
small fruit. 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON CITY P^VRM. 511 

PRISONERS AND COST OF MAINTAHNING. 

The police court sentenced 54 female and 4i:! male prisoners to be 
confined at the farm, making- a total of 4G7 prisoners for the year. 
The number cared for in the jirevious year was 624. 

The number of weeks' board furnished the 4G7 prisoners was 3.123 5-7, 
and the average cost of board for each prisoner was $1.G9. 

It has been the custom of former committees to compute the cost of 
the board of prisoners by deducting the amount of the permanent 
improvements and bills receivable from the net cost of maintaining 
the farm and divide the amount by the number of weeks' board. The 
committee has followed this custom in the present instance. 

SUMMARY. 

Number of jarisoners 467 

Number of weeks' board 2,122 5/7 

Permanent improvements $800.00 

Other improvements 140.00 

Cost per week for each prisoner 1.69 

Stock and household goods 13,966.88 

Increase of stock 292.60 

RECOMMtETs^DATIONS. 

On May 27, 1904, the Manchester Traction, Light & Power Company 
notified the committee that after the first day of June the lighting 
bills for the farm would be by meter rates, at seventeen cents per 
thousand watt hours, with the usual discount. The committee found 
ninety-eight sixteen-candle power lamps in use and replaced eighty- 
four of them by six and eight-candle power lamps. 

Even with this change, the cost of lighting the farm so far exceeds 
the original cost of one hundred dollars per year that it seems to the 
committee that some action is called for which would reduce this 
expense. 

We would resj)ectfully recommend that an investigation be made as 
to the cost of installing machinery for generating electricity for light- 
ing and other purposes. 

The entire easterly line from the Bald Hill road southei-ly to land 
near Hanover street formerly owned by the late Charles Williams has 
been in dispute for a number of ,years. The engineer's department 
set chestnut hubs the entire length in November, 1895, but no agree- 
ment was reached. 

We recommend that this line be established in the near future. 

HISTORY OF FARM. 

In March, 1S41, the town of Manchester voted to purchase land for a 
poor farm and appointed a committee for that purpose. 



512 ANNUAL OFFICIAL IIEPORTS. 

April 22, 1S41, the committee purchased of Moses Davis, for the sum 
of four thousand dollars, 106 acres and 41 rods of land west of the 
Mammoth road, and January 5, 1847, a part of the land east of the 
said road (area not given in deed) of Frederick G. Stark for the sum 
of six thousand dollars. 

From time to time the city purchased more land, and today, not- 
withstanding a large section was surveyed and cut up into houselots 
and another large section set apart as a public park, there still remains 
128.21 acres, valued by the city at $135,240. 

On June 5, 1843, the town authorized the selectmen to make the 
necessary alterations in the house on the town farm for a house of 
correction, and from that time the farm has been carried on jointly as 
a poor farm and house of correction. 

A complete history of the purchase of the land and the erection 
of the buildings thereon, and all actions incident thereto, would make 
interesting reading and be valuable for reference in years to come. 
We earnestly hope that before many years have passed some committee 
may iindertake this work.

REPORT OF THE CITY SOLICITOR. 



REPORT OF THE CITY SOLICITOR. 



To His Honor the Mayor and the City Councils: 
I herewith submit my report as solicitor for the year 1904: 
The case of Wiggin v. City, upon facts agreed, was decided adversely 
to the city by the supreme court. The controversy and long-drawn-out 
litigation arising from the widening and straightening of Mast road 
has been finally settled by the payment of two hundred dollars to C. A. 
Blood for land taken by the city. Otherwise there was no expense to 
The city. 

. Carpenter v. Manchester, a claim for damages for land taken, was 
settled hj payment of sixty-five dollars, against which the city had a 
set-oflf of sixty dollars. 

Several minor claims for damages caused by alleged defective sewers 
were adjusted. 

The suit of Elmer A. Gibbs v. City, growing out of the alleged 
wrongful dismissal by the board of police commissioners from the 
police force was tried in Lebanon, and a verdict found against the 
city. The case was then transferred to the supreme court, where it 
is now pending upon important questions of law. 

Various small claims against the city for damage caused by dogs 
have been paid. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE A. WAGNER, 

City Solicitor.

EEPOET 



OVEESEERS OF THE POOR. 



REPOET OF THE OVERSEERS OF THE POOR. 



To His Honor the Mayor and Gentlemen of the City Councils: 

In compliance with the ordinance of said city councils, the overseers 
of the ijoor herewith present their annual report. The high prices 
charged for the necessaries that enter into the daily consumption of 
the poor people made it incumbent on the overseers of the poor to be 
a little more liberal and yet not extravagant, for what six or eight 
dollars would purchase some time ago it would require ten or more 
dollars to purchase this year. Tliere was also an increase in the 
number of families making application for assistance over the previous 
year, of 22, or a total of 312 families for the year, consisting of more 
than 1,500 persons, outside of those supported by the board, wholly or 
in part, at. the following institutions: At the county farm there were 
twelve most of the time, and their board was increased from $2.00 to 
$2.50 and $3.00 per week; at the Sacred Heart Hospital there were four 
part of the time at a cost to the city of $7.00 per week; at St. Joseph's 
Boys' Home there are twelve; at Notre Dame Orphanage there were 
eight most of the time; at St. Patrick's Orphanage, seven; at St. 
Peter's three. All of these children cost the city $5.00 per month 
each. These children have good educational advantages and a good 
moral training. There was also one at St. Vincent's Hospital for a 
time at a cost of $5.00 per week, and we have two at the State Indus- 
trial School at a cost of $1.50 per week. There were two at the New 
Hampshire State Hospital, which cost the city $4.00 per week. 

For a considerable part of the time during the year the calls made 
upon the board could not be met with the ai)j)ropriation allowed, conse- 
quently the appropriation was considerably overdrawn. We would re- 
spectfullj^ suggest that the city council be more liberal in their appro- 
priations, so that the board would not be obliged to overdraw, a thing 
they do not like to do. From year to year our population is increasing, 
consequent]}' the i^oor are increasing in the same ratio, with the result 
that more monej^ is needed to meet those increasing demands. 

The amounts expended by the board for, all purposes during the 
jear by the overseers of the different wards were as follows: 

Ward 1. George E. Davis . , $832.39 

Ward 2. D. G. Andrews 872.40 

Ward 3. E. H. Holmes 613.05 

Ward 4. Charles B. Clarkson 573.38
