Mayor's Veto. 

To the Honorable Council of the City of Manchester, N. H.: 

Gentlemen: — I herewith return resolution entitled "Resolution set- 
ting aside money for the purpose of paying certain city bonds due 
April 1, 1907," with my veto, and for the following reasons: 

I think it inadvisable to change the policy which has already been 
adopted, and Which is, in fact, the unwritten law by which we have 
thus far been guided of providing for the payment of all bonds bj r 
a sinking fund distributing the burden of payment over a period of 
years and with as much uniformity as affecting the taxpayers as is 
possible. The spasmodic appropriation of a sum in bulk like the 
present sum of $9,000 for the liquidation of old debts and without 
reference to any fixed apportionment seems to me inconsistent and 
inconsequential. Such action to have any semblance of an orderly 
program must contemplate a purpose of adding to the $9,000, which 
it is proposed at this time to take out of the treasury, the further 
sum of $41,000 next year for the total amount due at that time, and 
which it is proposed to in part liquidate by this appropriation is 
$50,000, and when we remember that we have got to meet other 
bond issues authorized before our times and without any provision 
for their liquidation by a sinking fund, and which will come due as 
foUows: Bonds of April 1, 1885, $50,000, due April 1, 1907; bonds of 
April 1, 1885, $50,000, due April 1, 1908; bonds of April 1, 1885, $5,000, 
due April 1, 1911; bonds of July 1, 1881, $1,500, due July 1, 1911; bonds 
of July 1, 1881, $19,500, due July 1, 1911; bonds of July 1, 1881, $39,000, 
due July 1, 1911, making altogether $165,000 of ancient debts that 
will fall due within the next five years, it at once becomes apparent 
that no other course is possible than to follow the same method 
which we have pursued heretofore, of extinguishing these debts by 
gradual and uniform payments. Now, provided that such is our deter- 
mination, there appears to be no good reason because we happen to 
have a neat and safe balance of free cash in the treasury for us to 
assume the role of the improvident and unthrifty who cannot be con- 
tent so long as there is any money unspent in their pockets. 

The mere fact that a part of this money is the proceeds of the 
sale of a portion of the city farm property need disturb no one, rather 
it would seem that it was especially and peculiarly appropriate that 
any money accruing from that source should at once be applied to 
current expenses as an aid to the reduction of taxes which the old 



142 REPORT OF THE CITY AUDITOR. 

city farm has before this time largely aided to increase. It may ln- 
said that the present appropriations, including everything as they 
stand, will not make an excessive tax rate, which it is understood will 
be in the vicinity of $1.93 on the one hundred, but it must be remem- 
bered that that rate is calculated on an increased valuation, and the 
people will expect of us a corresponding decrease in the rate. It is 
for tins reason that in addition to vetoing of this resolution, which 
seems to me to be the result of no well matured plan, that I shall 
recommend that this sum of $9,000 be deducted from the amount to 
be raised by direct taxation. 

It seems to me that the approval which we may expect if we 
succeed in accomplishing a tax rate below $1.90 will more than com- 
pensate any of us for the sacrifice of some theory about forthwith 
emptying- our pockets to pay debts before they are due. It has been 
suggested to me that there is some peculiar propriety in using money 
received from the sale of assets of the city to pay debts not yet due, 
assuming that real estate is more properly a municipal asset than 
some other variety of the city's means, such I do not understand to 
be -the case. An ancient adage well known to us all appears to be 
particularly appropriate at this time, namely: "Do not cross the 
bridge until you come to it." 

1 herewith return resolution entitled, "Resolution raising money 
and making appropriations for the year 1906," together with my veto 
of the item under street and sewer department, calling for an appro- 
priation of $8,000 for concreting or asphalting Elm street from Bridge 
street northerly. 

This item was an afterthought of the committee on finance and 
was added to their budget after the appropriation for the street and 
sewer department had been limited to such appropriations as the com- 
mittee having this matter under consideration and the commission 
itself had agreed. 

Extension of work in other directions, as greatlj needed as in this 
Instance, was not provided for because it wis believed by all con 
cerned that the total amount to be raised as it stood before the 
addition of this $S,000 item was as much as could be reasonably asked 
for this year. I believe that the committee's original determination 
was rightfully reached and that it would be an injustice, in view of 
the just demands of many other sections of the city, to add this 
large item not contained in the original adjustment of the total 
amount to be expended, not asked It- by tl ■<' commission itself ant! 
not fairly discussed with reference to the needs of other sections 
of the city. 

Together with my veto of this item, I recommend that the total 
amount be raised by direct taxation under this resolution be reduced: 
first, by $8,000 as represented by this item: second, by $9,000 free 
cash already in the treasury, so that the total amount to be raised 



mayor's veto. 143 

by direct taxation will be $657,108.59, instead of $674,108.59, as called 
for in the resolution. 

If my recommendation be adopted by your honorable body, I am 
enabled to inform you that the lax rate for this .year will fall below 
$1.90 on the hundred, a result which seems to me to be most desirable 
and which from the scope of sentiment obtained will be well received 
by the people with a large measure of approval. 

EUGENE E. REED, 

Mayer. 

Dated at Manchester, N. H., this 27th day of March. 1906. 

March 31, 1906. In board of common council. Mayor's veto of $8,000 
for concreting Elm street from Bridge street northerly, not sustained. 

Mayor's recommendation that the amount to be raised bj' direct 
taxation be fixed at $057,108.59, not adopted, and the amount to be 
so raised was fixed at $G74,10S.59, as originally voted.

Some Laws and Decisions Relating to Exemptions from 

Taxation. 

( i;\m m Tio.\ of New Hampshire, Abticxe 82, Page 38, Public 

Statutes. 

encouragement of literature, etc. 

Art. 82. "Knowledge and learning generally diffused through a 
community being essential to the preservation of a free government, 
and spreading the opportunities and advantages of education through 
the \;irii>us parts of the country, being highly conducive to promote 
this end, it shall be 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 pro- 
motion of agriculture, arts, sciences, commerce, trades, manufactures, 
and natural history of the country; to countenance and inculcate the 
principles 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, nevertheless, that no money raised by taxation shall 
ever be granted or applied for the use of schools or institutions' of 
any religious sect or denomination." 

Public Statutes, Chapteb 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 
parsonages 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 
farm." 

"Sect. 11. Towns may by vote exempt 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. 

5S X. H. Eep.. page 623. "The exemption in each ease 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. Bank v. Billings, 4 Pet. 514, 561. So long as the existing 
laws remain unrepealed, and the constitutional construction heretofore 
adopted remains unchanged, contracts hereafter made under these 



PROPERTY EXEMPT FROM TAXATION. 151 

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 charity," as follows: 

Gale Home for Aged and Destitute Women, N. H. Laws of 1899, 
chapter 199.

erally will not be permitted, to carry such votes into effect.

RESOLUTIONS ON THE DEATH OF HARRY E. PARKER, 
WATER COMMISSIONER. 



Whereas, Our official circle has again been broken by the change 
which we call death, bringing us once more face to face with the mys- 
teries of the unknown state, and which has removed the gracious 
presence of our brother commissioner and friend, Harry E. Parker, 
therefore it is fitting that we embalm his memory in the records of 
this board, and by so doing testify now and hereafter to the excel- 
lence of his attainments, and to our friendship and affection for him. 
Be It Resolved, That the Board of Water Commissioners has learned 
with profound sorrow and deep regret of the death of Harry E. Parker, 
late a member of this board. 

Resolved, That in the death of Harry E. Parker, not this board alone. 
but the city at large, has met with the loss of one whose active and 
extended usefulness, whose mastery of details, whose considerate 
justice and faithfulness, and whose energy, earnestness, and frank- 
ness have left an enviable record of which our city and all associated 
with him may well be proud. We know how kindly and cheerful he 
was. how engaging and winning- his personality, and how quietly and 
steadily he exerted his influence which was effective without being- 
offensive. 

Succeeding the late ex-governor James A. Weston eleven years ago 
as a member of this board, he followed in the path of his dis- 
tinguished predecessor, and discharged every obligation with tact, 
faithfulness, and ability. 

Resolved, That the testimonial be spread upon the records of this 
board, and copy of the same be sent to the widow of the deceased. 
Respectfully submitted. 

Eugene E. Reed, ex officio.

SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT. 



To the Board of Water Commissioners of the City of Manchester: 

(iExii.KMK.x: — The following- report of the superintendent for the 
year 1906 is respectfully submitted: 

We have had a fair average amount of water during the past year. 
The water in the lake was three feet above the dam in May, and the 
rains in that month kept up the supply until the first of October. To- 
day the water stands twenty-six inches below the dam. 

In April the Point Breeze house and the Rockingham house were 
bought, making three hotels near by that came under the charge of 
the city. The worst plaee of these three was the Rockingham house, 
on account of a brook which ran through the cellar. All the filth 
from the sinkspouts and water closets ran into this brook, and was 
filtered, as best it could be, through the sand before it entered the 
lake. 

We began in October to fill up the cellars of the Redmond hotel 
and Rockingham house. It was thought best to change the brook at 
these two places, and take the stone from both cellars and build a 
wall right on the edge of the lake. This was a good use to put the 
stones to, as we did not like to put them back into the cellars to 
cover up the filth. The wall built was 880 feet long and about three 
feet high. 

The stone about Point Breeze was left there and can be used to 
rubble the banks at other places when needed. 

The filling up of the cellars, grading and laying the wall, cost 
about $1,400. The men went out and back on the cars and the teams 
were hired close by. 

It is evident that the brooks coming from the north will be used as 
a sewer and will convey considerable filth into the lake. 

It seems to this department that the land which is left can be 
controlled so that it will be impossible to contaminate the water to 
any great extent, and that the board of health could regulate the 
whole thing so that the lake, which supplies seventy thousand people 
with water for domestic purposes, can be protected from pollution. 

August 20 a leak was reported on the penstock at the old station. 
"We immediately sent out ten men, who dug down to it and found 
the leak in a plank drain, ten inches by twelve inches, which was used 
to carry off the water that came from the ditch where the penstock 

197 



198 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

was laid. This drain had become rotten, and the water from it was 
nearly all leaking' into the ground within fifty feet of the station. 
The penstock was sound and did not leak but very little, but it struck 
me very forcibly that w» should be prepared for anything that might 
happen to this part of the works. I would recommend that a steel 
penstock be made and kept on hand, so that if anything happens we 
shall be all ready to replace the wooden one for a steel one without 
waiting to have it built. 

As we have had some trouble with the bevel gear that carries the 
Davidson pump, it was thoug-ht best to have a new one made, with 
any improvements that might go with it to make it stronger and 
better. Accordingly one was ordered by President Manning, to be 
furnished by the Holyoke Manufacturing Company as soon as pos- 
sible. 

At the old station sixty rods of fence were rebuilt. At the new high 
service station the pumps have done good work and have helped out 
the old service quite a little. 

We had a cracked pipe near the station which was quite a thing to 
fix. At the time the new pumps were put in a connection was made 
with a Y branch and a 20-inch gate was set on to a 4-foot 20-inch 
pipe; this was a short piece to take out and fix, but it was done so 
that we lost only one day of pumping. 

There has been nothing new on either force or supply mains, ex- 
cepting the river pipe, which was looked over by a couple of divers 
and reported to be in good condition, so that the expense of repairing 
pipe was about the same as last year. There has been no extra ex- 
se on either reservoir. 

l'lsTHIBUTIOX riri . 

There has been laid during the past year about two miles of pipe. 
The longest one piece was on the Nutt road near the fair grounds. 
Twenty-two hydrants and twenty-one gates have been set. 
We have now about 110 miles of pipe

SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT. 



To the School Hoard, the City Councils, and the Citizens of Manchester: 

The following is presented as the annual report of the school de- 
partment for the year ending July 15, 1906. It is the sixtieth report 
of the department as a whole and the fifty-first of a superintendent. 

liUir.mxos, BOOMS, AND TEACHERS. 

The public school children of the city have been housed in twenty- 
five school buildings classified as follows: High school building, 1; 
combined grammar and lower grade buildings, 1."); combined middle 
and primary buildings, ?>; .ungraded buildings, 5; manual training, 1. 

In these twenty-five buildings one hundred and thirty-nine rooms 
have been utilized for regular day schools, of which sixteen have been 
for high school purposes, thirty-nine for grammar school purposes, 
twenty-eight for middle schools, forty-six for primary schools, one 
for a partially graded school, five for ungraded schools, one for a 
kindergarten, and three for the purposes of manual training. 

For the giving of instruction in these one hundred and thirty-nine 
rooms the city has employed an average of one hundred and fifty-two 
teachers for the year, exclusive of the members of the training- 
school. Had these last been included, the total number" of persons 
employed in teaching in the public schools in the city would have 
been one hundred and sixty-one for the entire year. 

The number of teachers by grades has been as follows: High school, 
seventeen; grammar schools, forty-six; middle schools, including the 
training school, twenty-nine; primary schools, forty-five; partially 
graded, one; suburban ungraded, six; special teachers, three; kinder- 
garten and manual training, five. 

The number of buildings in use has been the same as for the year 
1904-1905. The number of rooms exceeds the number for that year 
by three, due to the employment of seventeen teachers in the high 
school instead of sixteen as formerly, to the opening of fourth divi- 
sion grammar rooms in the Straw and Varney buildings, and to the 
utilization of another room in the manual training building, these last 
for portions of the school year only. 

Changes in the classification of rooms have occurred to the extent 
that there has been a gain of one in those of grammar grade, a loss 
ni' two in those of middle grade, and a gain of two in those of primary 

237 



238 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

grade. This net gain of one room in the elementary schools, coupled 
with the increases in the high school and manual training- build 
will account for the increase of three rooms for the year. 

The average number of teachers has increased from one hundred 
and fifty to one hundred and fifty-two, due to the additional rooms 
before mentioned. 

One hundred and thirty-four registers have been kept for the entire 
year, and one for a portion of the year, giving a total of one hundred 
and thirty-five schools in the eyes of the law. This does not include 
the record kept at the manual training school. 

The apparent discrepancy between the number of rooms and the 
number of schools is explained when it is known that there are 
ascribed to the high school sixteen rooms and fifteen registers, and 
to the manual training school three recms and no registers. Thus the 
difference of four, between one hundred and thirty-nine rooms and 
one hundred and thirty-five schools with one hundred and thirty-five 
registers, is explained. 

ENROLLMENT, MEMBERSHIP, AND ATTINhAM E. 

The total enrollmenl I'm - the year has been five thousand seven 
hundred and three, which is iess than for any one of the preceding 
five years. This does not of necessity mean that the schools are 
growing smaller or that interest in popular education is declining. 
It does show that greater care is taken in the transfer of pupils from 
school to school and that fewer duplicate enrollments occur. 

The average membership has been four thousand nine hundred and 
seven, the largest in the records of the city, and exceeding that of 
1905 by ninety. As before stated in these reports, the average mem- 
bership, or the number of pupils who have been members of the 
school for every day of the entire year, is the only just criterion for 
the numerical measurement of the system. 

The average daily attendance has been four thousand five hundred 
and thirty-one. This number exceeds that of L905 by one hundred 
and nineteen, and is again the largest in the history of the city. 

With these increases of ninety and one hundred and nineteen re- 
spectively, but two additional teachers have been employed. 

The percentage of attendance has been slightly better than for 
1905, and represents a gain of about one room of pupils per day. 

I again insert a table showing the increases and decreases in mem- 
bership of the various buildings as compared with last year. Eleven 
buildings show losses aggregating one hundred and thirty pupils. 
While ten show gains aggregating two hundred and twenty pupils.

The -number of tardinesses has increased by four hundred and 
seventeen, about one half of one per cent, and in a ratio greater than 
the increase in membership. Promptness is one of the primary vir- 
tues to be inculcated and practiced by the school. It is the first step 
towards diligence and efficiency. The following table again shows the 
record of the various schools in this matter.

The Straw school with an average membership of two hundred and 
eighty-eighl has had bu1 seventy-seven tardinesses during the year, 
a record of seven one hundredths of one per cent. This is deserving 
of honorable mention in the records of the school department, and 
is mentioned for that purpose. The high school and the Amoskeag 
school also have commendable records in that there has been a con- 
stant decrease of tardiness in both buildings during the past four 
years.

Miss Annie Patten of the Lincoln-street school was made assistant 
supervisor of drawing and sewing, and Miss Cora Gilford elected to 
be master's assistant in that building. 

CHANDLER school in ll.ht.M,. 

\t the close of the year the (handler School building, situated at 
the northeast corner of Concord and Ashland streets, was completed 
and accepted by the joint committee of the school hoard and city 
g ivernment, which had had charge of its erection. 

The school was named in honor of the late George Byron (handler, 
for many years one of the city's most prominent and philanthropic 
cit i/.ens. 

The structure, cue hundred and twenty-three feet and four inches 
by forty-nine feet and four inches, is of hrick trimmed with gray 
sandstone and presents a most pleasing exterior. It contain.- upon 
two floors eight rooms, all situated on the south side of the building. 
Ample hall space Occupies the north side of both Hoofs. The finish 

is an imitation of green oak and all furniture was especially manu- 
factured to further this color scheme. 

The situation id' the rooms on the south side of the building [ 
the best possible light, while it ensures economy in heating. The 
window surface is sufficient. 

Heat is provided both by direct and by indirect radiation, the coils 
for the indirect furnishing also ample ventilation through the four 
large stacks erected for that purpose. 

The basement is spacious, the plumbing of the mosl modern pattern, 
and the Gurney sectional boilers, id' which there are two. are fully 
sufficient for the heating of the building. 

The color and finish produce a most pleasing impression upon the 
mind of the visitor and render the interior more attractive, perhaps, 
than is the interior of any other school building. The structure was 
erected by the .1. 11. Mendel] Company, after designs by William M. 
Butterfield, architect. 



REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OP schools. 243 

The special committee for the erection of the building, on the part 
of ilie school board, was composed of Mr. II. L. Davis, Mr. Frank I.. 
Downs, Mr. Frank A. Cadwell, Mr. Elmer I). Goodwin. 

The board at the .luly meeting appointed as a sub-committee on 
this school Mr. John F. Lee, Mr. Joel S. Daniels, and Mr. Frank A. 
Cadwell, by whom the corp of teachers was selected and recommended 
to this board for election. 

As at present constituted, the school has two rooms of middle grade, 
four rooms of primary grade and a kindergarten. 

M A T EB I A L IMP K O V EM E X TS . 

The sum of eighteen hundred dollars was appropriated by the city 
council to be expended in the grading of certain school grounds 
throughout the city. Under the direction of the efficient committee 
appointed for this purpose, the yards of the Ash-street, Lincoln-street, 
Wilson, Highland, Straw,. Webster, Training, and Pearl-street schools 
have been put in excellent condition and the appearance of these 
buildings greatly improved. The committee expended in this work 
a sum slightly exceeding one thousand dollars. 

That the present excellent condition of these grounds may be 
maintained and that the money already expended may not be wasted 
it will be necessary to secure an appropriation for the purpose of 
keeping these school yards in order. 

The appropriation for the Varney school was not used, and I am 
informed that this sum of eight hundred dollars is to be carried over 
to the year 1907 and the needed grading be then done. No standing 
committee of this body devotes more time to the performance of its 
duties than does the committee upon repairs. To be assured that 
repairs are necessary, to inspect the progress of the work and to 
pass upon its completion demand much time and the covering of a 
wide territory. The time has been given and the territory covered 
as the judicious expenditure of the appropriation for this purpose 
testifies. 

Extensive repairs have been made upon the heating plant of the 
Fearl-street school at a cost of about one thousand dollars. 

The interiors of the Ash and Franklin-street schools have been thor- 
oughly renovated. Extensive concreting, both in the renewing of old 
walks and putting down new, has been done. 

The high school called for a large expenditure for the repair of 
metal work in its finish. 

The cupola of the Straw school called for an expenditure large in 
proportion to its worth, either on the side of utility or beauty. 

The expense of grading the Straw, Webster, and Pearl-street yards 
was paid from the funds of the committee on repairs. These, the 
more expensive with the ordinary repairs necessary for the upkeep 



244 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

of twenty-five buildings, have exhausted the appropriation of the 
committee. 

The schoolhouses wore never in better repair than at the pr< 

time. 

ACCOMMODATIONS. 

The Chandler school was opened at the beginning of the fall term 
with a membership for the first month of two hundred and fifty-four. 
These pupils were transferred from the Lincoln-street, Ash-street, 
and Pearl-street schools, giving to these buildings much Deeded relief 
and allowing of the abolition of the four extra rooms upon the third 
floors of the Lincoln-street and Ash-street buildings. 

Relief was given to the crowded rooms of the Varney school by the 
transfer of certain pupils to the. Parker school and the opening of an 
extra room in that building. 

There remains at the presenl time but one congi hool, the 

Hallsville. The condition in the two .primary rooms of this building 
is practically the same as its most crowded period in 1903 and 1904. 
These rooms have had an average membership of fifty-nine and 
sixty-nine pupils during the pasl term. Because of a lack of rooms 
four teachers have been employed to do 'lie work of three. This cost 
tlie city last year five hundred and fifty dollars, a sum that easily 
might have been saved. The overcrowding in this building has already 
cost the city, in addition to the salarj of an extra teacher for the pres- 
enl year, two thousand and seventy-five dollars. The school board is 
powerless in this matter and the onus for this waste falls upon the 
city council, because of its refusal to provide additional rooms in this 
sect i.m of the city. 

It is fair to presume that the opening of the new shoe shop will 
cause a further crowding in this building by the opening of the 
spring term. 

I recommend that the matter of providing additional accommoda- 
tions in this section of the city be made the subject for a special 
communication from this board to the citv council. 



Drawing owes its claim to a place in our course of stud}- because 
of its value as a means of self expression, inducing close observation, 
comparison, judgment, and execution. 

For many years the city has employed but one special teacher in 
this subject. In order to make more efficient the work in this line, 
the board, upon recommendation of the committee on drawing, and 
after an inquiry into the need for the same, voted to elect an assist- 
ant to the supervisor of drawing, this assistant also to have charge of 
the sewing now taught in the eighth and ninth grades. 



REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS. 245 

Miss Annie \Y. Patten, formerly master's assistant at the Lincoln- 
street school, was selected for this post. Miss Patten is a teacher of 
broad experience and great capability and had prepared herself for 
this work by special courses at the Pratt Institute. In her the city 
has secured skilled teaching - power as well as special knowledge of 
her subject. 

MANUAL TRAINING SCHOOL. 

The total enrollment in this school for the year 1906 was three 
hundred and eighty-one pupils and the average membership was three 
hundred and twenty. The membership for the past term has been 
three hundred and thirty-three. The school has had in the past a 
steady growth and has increased during the past five years in its 
average membership from two hundred and fourteen pupils to the 
present number, three hundred and thirty-three. 

Three teachers are employed and three rooms are occupied by dif- 
ferent classes at the same time. 

The principal is busily engaged in perfecting and extending the 
course. As before stated in reports to this body, considerable metal 
work is laid out to be done, but progress along this line has been and 
is now handicapped by lack of suitable machinery. There is great 
need of a shaper, and an engine lathe, both of which were included 
in the estimates of this body for the city council last January, but 
both of which were denied by the council. I suggest that these be 
again included for the year 1907. One year ago a band saw was re- 
quested of the city council, with the statement that one half of its 
cost would be saved during the first year in the preparation of stock 
for the use of the pupils. This was denied upon the ground of its 
dangerous character. The principal informs me that no grammar 
school boys would be allowed to use such a machine were one in- 
stalled, but that its use woidd be confined to the teachers and post 
graduates. 

The stock of tools has been kept in good repair, worn out material 
replaced by new, and a few additional purchases made. 

If the manual training idea is worthy of support, it is worthy of 
being well supported, and in view of our small expenditure upon this 
school no charge of extravagance can be made. There are in the 
grammar schools of the city six hundred and ninety-one boys. Of 
these three hundred and twenty-one have the privilege of attending 
this school and three hundred and seventy-one have no form of hand 
work. It is my belief that the city can take no forward step in educa- 
tional matters that will be of more benefit to her citizens than to 
extend the privilege of manual training to these three hundred and 
seventy-one pupils. At the same time sewing and cooking should be 
taught to the gilds. These forms of manual work train to close ob-

servation, teach pupils to compare and judge and aid in self expres- 
sion, besides being- utilitarian. 

Two schools, the Varney and Franklin-street, have planted and 
carried on school gardens. Previous reports have advocated i lie ex- 
trusion of these gardens fi r very patent and forcible reasons. I give 
a picture of a portion of the Varnej garden as laid out in plots, the 
vegetables and flowers jusl appearing above the ground. 

HIGH S( HOOL. 

The average membership of the high school has increased by 
thirty-two over the year 1905. This is the largesl increase since the 
time of firsl occupying the new building, when the membership leaned 
from two hundred and ninety to three hundred and Seventy-eight. 

The graduating class in June numbered seventy-eight, while the 
entering class in September contained one hundred and sixtj pupils, 
about seventy per cenl of the number that passed the grammar s< 
for t he high school. 

During the year the course of sludy has Ween >o revised as to eon- 
form to the requirements of the state superintendent of public in- 
struction in the matter of making American history a prescribed 
study for the third or fourth year, as the pupil may choose. Formerly 
this subject was an elective. Geography and history of commerce 
were also made elective in the second clav<. Arithmetic review anil 
English grammar for the first class, one year of work, were trans- 
posed so that the grammar precedes the arithmetic. Creek and Roman 
history was marie a fourth class study. 

During the period covered by this report new text-books have been 
adopted upon the subjects of physics, French, Latin, zoology, and 
German. 

The commercial department has been equipped with large flat- 
topped business desks instead of the regulation school desk. The 
equipment of typewriters has been made more serviceable and useful 
by the addition id' standard machines of the besl make. The number 
in use at the present time is twenty-two. The teachers in this depart- 
ment desire changes in the bookkeeping text-hook and in the type- 
writer book, neither of which would involve much expense. 

The biology department is well equipped as is the chemistry depart- 
ment. That the physics teaching may be put upon the same high 
plane there is need of additional apparatus, which will be called to 
your attention early in the new year. 

in view of the agitation about the high school and its work during 
The last year, and to correct any misapprehension in regard to its 
standing with the colleges, it is well to state that the school has the 
certificate id' approval of the Xew England College Entrance Certif- 
icate Board, that every New England college that will receive any 



REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS. 247 

pupil upon the certificate of his teachers, will accept the certificate 

of the teachers of the Manchester Bigh School. This last statement 
is tine also of two colleges outside of New England, these two being 
the only institutions which our pupils have attempted to enter upon 
cert [ficates. 

l T p to the present time Harvard and Yale colleges have admitted 
students only upon their own, i. e., the college's, examinations, and 
have admitted none upon certificates. Tn case of Harvard, her custom 
is to be modified, 1 believe, to the extent of accepting as a whole or 
in part the examinations of the College Entrance Examining Board, 
these examinations conforming to her standard for admission. (The 
New England College Entrance Certificate Board and the College 
Entrance Examining Board are distinct bodies.) This College En- 
trance Examining Board is composed of representatives of colleges 
and high schools, who on the same day in different cities of north- 
eastern United States submit examinations to all candidates for ad- 
mission to college. The certificate of standing given by this board 
is accepted by most of the colleges, and admission is given to the 
institution to which application is made. A student may thus pass 
his college entrance examination and afterwards select the colleg-e 
at which he will matriculate. 

It will be seen that no other high school presents a broader or more 
open road to higher education than our own. Both quality and quan- 
tity of work in the various courses are ample, and it rests only with 
the student to apply himself and utilize his opportunities. 

The percentage of failures, as shown by the investigations last 
April, was six and one-tenth per cent (G.l), which was small compared 
with the number of failures in other institutions of which information 
could be obtained. Indications at present are that the percentage of 
failures for the first half of the present year will be about five (5) 
per cent. 

The investigation at that time also disclosed to my mind very con- 
clusively that the chief cause of failure in the various studies is lack 
of application on the part of the pupil. This is borne out by the state- 
ments of forty-two per cent of those who were deficient, as well as 
by the estimates of the instructors. A second cause of failure is im- 
maturity and slow development on the part of some pupils. These 
need fewer studies and a longer time for the completion of the course. 
A third cause of failure is undoubtedly outside interests and attrac- 
tions. This cause can be removed only through the co-operation of 
the home. A fourth cause, unavoidable and only to be deplored, is 
illness with its consequent absence. A fifth cause is indifference. 
This is the most serious of all and the most perplexing. It reveals 
a state of mind, a condition of will and feeling difficult to combat, 
for. in the condition of will and feeling lies the obstacle to progress. 



248 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

Only through influencing the feelings with 1he consequent effect upon 
the will can the cure be effected. 

These are in the nature of those obscure afflictions of the bod\\ in 
which, with the symptoms well marked, the physician is compelled 
to exhaust his old and then invent new remedies to reach the seat 
of disease. 

The authorization of an afternoon session has up to the present 
time bettered the daily work of some pupils. Its effect upon defi- 
ciencies can be told at the expiration of the semester. 

I believe that the morale of the school is high, that the pupils take 
pride in being- members of it, that there exists among them a spirit 
of fair play ami democracy which augurs well for the future. 

KINDERGARTENS. 

At the September meeting of the school board it was voted to open 
a kindergarten in the Chandler building. It was voted also that the 
chair appoint a committee on kindergartens to be one of the perma- 
nent sub-committees of the board. Accordingly, .Mr. Frank L. Downs, 
Mr. Elmer D. Goodwin and .Mr. Michael .1. Moran were constituted 
such a committee. 

The committee after due deliberation and enquiry furnished and 
equipped a kindergarten in that school at an expense of about three 
hundred dollars. Two local young ladies, Misses Mabel B. Currier 
and Jeanette M. Bartlett, were recommended by the committee to the- 
board and elected as principal and assistant respectively. The num- 
ber to be admitted was limited to forty-eight, and the age of admis- 
sion was set at tour years. The school was opened October 11, and 
continued till the close of the term. 

It is a cause for congratulation that the demand for kindergarten 
training is being made by parents. I recommend the opening of a 
kindergarten in the Parker building at the beginning of the spring 
term. 

EVENING SCHOOLS. 

The evening schools during the fall of 1905 were generally well at- 
tended and the pupils evinced a commendable interest in their work. 
The membership was slightly below that of the preceding year. The 
experiment of conducting a second term of these schools during the 
early months of the year was tried with discouraging results. The 
membership was but little more than one third of that of the pre- 
ceding term, and after continuing for four weeks with a diminishing 
attendance the schools were closed. It would appear that for the 
great majority of these pupils constant attendance for twelve weeks 
at the night school, coupled with the labor of each day, is too ex- 
hausting, and hence the disinclination to attend for a second term. 
Advanced pupils in these schools are few. Nothing like a definite 



REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS. 249 

course with progression year by year has been or can be laid down 
for these schools under present conditions. The membership is in- 
constant from term to term, and the terms are widely separated in 
time. The establishment of a course leading to a diploma would be 
most desirable. A manual training evening school in conjunction 
with book instruction might hold the pupils and accomplish a great 
amount of good. 

FEEBLE-MINDED CHILDREN. 

In response to an inquiry by the state superintendent of public 
instruction an effort has been made to find out the number of feeble- 
minded and mentally deficient children in the city. Thus far, through 
the efforts of the teachers, there have been discovered and reported 
to this office the names of twenty-three such children. The examina- 
tion of an expert would probably reduce this number somewhat, but 
the fact still remains that there is a small number of such unfortunates 
who are deserving of special treatment and a different regime from 
that which of necessity can be provided by the public schools. 

This is a matter that should receive the attention of this body. 
Examinations of such children should be made by a competent physi- 
cian with a view to the amelioration of their condition. 

EXPENSE AND TEACHERS' SALARIES. 

The annual report of the school committee for the year 1901 con- 
tained a table showing the per cent of the public money expended in 
the maintenance of the public schools of the city for the decade 1891- 
1900 inclusive. This percentage is figured upon two bases: first, that 
of the grand total of city expenditures, including state and county 
taxes, which are permanent charges, and second, upon the base of 
ordinary expenditures, not including state and county taxes. 

The table shows that figured upon the first basis the city expended 
upon an average 8.1 per cent of its total disbursements in that time 
for school purposes, that during the same period, reckoned upon the 
second base, it expended 12.9 per cent. Both of these figures are ex- 
tremely small. 

The net expenditure of the city as shown by the last volume of 
the city report was $1,075,966.30. The net cost of the schools as 
shown by the same report was $143,081.63. This is 13.2 per cent, or 
less than one seventh of the net expenditure of the city. The report 
for 1901 also stated that the ordinary cost of the public schools 
throughout the United States ranged from one third to one half of 
the public revenue. 

The children of school age in the city are divided between two sys- 
tems of schools, the public and the Roman Catholic parochial schools, 
in about equal numbers, so far as my knowledge goes. 



250 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

I r the city were to assume the instruction of these latter children 
upon the same scale of expense as that at which the public schools 
are conducted the cost of maintenance would still be but twenty-six 
and four tenths (26.4) per cent of the public revenue, a sum which 
falls Ear short of one third of the city's receipts. To brine- the cost 
up to one thirdthe city would still need to add $72,492.13 to its school 
budget, this upon the basis of last year's expenditures. These state- 
ments and figures are easily verifiable and prove conclusively thai 
the city is amply able to pay its grade teachers higher salaries than 
they now receive, it is merely a matter of will and disposition. - 

Some comparisons with other cities may be instructive. Sometime 
ago as a result of inquiries, it was elicited thai each of seventeen Mas- 
sachusetts cities, selected by a member of the board to be solicited 
for information in this matter, paid higher salaries to its teachers 
than does the city of Manchester. Those whose population mosi 
nearly equals our-. Lynn, New Bedford, Springfield, Somerville, Hol- 
yoke, paid respectively $600, $750, $850, $650, and $700 as the maximum 
salary of grade teachers. Lowell and Lawrence, pre-eminently cot- 
ton manufacturing cities, similar in character to our own, paid each 
$600. 

The cost of living has increased materially, wage earners in all 
industries are receiving advances. M is neither creditable nor politic 
for a city to underpay its employees. 

1 recommend that the board so amend its rules as to make the max- 
imum salary id' grade teachers $600 per year, and that the clerk iii 
making up the estimate for school purposes for the year 1907 be in- 
structed to figure the salaries upon this basis. 

Only those teachers receiving the maximum salary would be af- 
fected by the first alteration of the rule. These teachers number 
about eighty. Others would progress with the regular $50 yearly 
advances, as is now the rule, till they attain a maximum of $600 
instead of $550. 

OBITUAKT. 

Twice has the hand of death intervened in school affairs and re- 
moved two most faithful members of the schools" corps of worker-. 

Miss Bessie M. Abbott departed this life on Saturday, December 16, 
1906. 

Miss Abbott was a graduate of the Hallsville school and of the 
high school in the class of 1903. After graduation from the latter 
institution she entered the training school for teachers and received 
her certificate to teach in our schools at the end of June, L905. 

She was immediately elected to the middle grade of the Amoskeag 
school, and had served successfully and with great credit to herselJ 
for one year and one term in that position. 



REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS. 251 

She was a young lady of beautiful character and charming personal- 
ity. Her work was excellent and her room reflected the beauty of her 
disposition. Her loss is mourned alike by her pupils and associates. 

On the sixth day of December, 1906, after a very brief illness, the 
death of Mr. William Connor was announced to the public. 

Mr. Conner was a veteran of the Civil War and had for a number 
of years had the care of the Main-street and Parker schools. His 
circle of friends w 7 as large, and he w T as especially prominent in the 
G. A. I!., where he had been honored b3 r his comrades with the highest, 
offices in their gift. 

His service to the school department was always characterized by 
the same faithfulness and efficiency that won for him the respect 
and esteem of his Grand Army companions. 

He was always ready to aid teachers by every means in his power. 
His buildings were models of neatness and order, and all of his work 
was deserving of praise. 

•conclusion. 

In the conduct of school affairs but one grand aim should be kept 
in view and that is the welfare of the pupils. All other aims are sub- 
sidiary and unimportant, except in so far as they contribute to this 
one great aim of the school. The school not only trains for future 
living and future citizenship, but is itself a very important part of 
present living and present citizenship. The school is not a thing 
apart from the present life of the community, but is a very vital part 
of the present. The pupil should not and does not amass a quantity 
of facts of no relevancy to everyday life. In the school he does re- 
ceive a certain intellectual training - and through this a much more 
important ethical training. It is not for mere knowledge of facts that 
the schools exist. Far, far beyond this is the aim of the school- 
teacher. The facts of knowledge are but instruments in the building 
of character, for the production of moral motives and moral conduct 
in the individual, in brief, for the production of moral agents. 

In so far as the school contributes to the growth of such, in so far 
as it inculcates the "principles of humanity and general benevolence,' 1 
together with the virtues upon which these must rest, so far is it a 
blessing to the community and a safeguard for the perpetuity of the 
nation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CHARLES W. BICKFORD.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 



To Bin Honor the Mayor: 

The board of health submits the following report for the year 190G: 

Dr. J. E. A. Lanouette was reappointed by the mayor, and at the 
annual meeting - of the board Dr. Lanouette was re-elected president 
and William K. Robbins clerk. 

The appropriation allowed by the city council for carrying on the 
work of the department during the year was $10,000. 

In addition to this a special appropriation was allowed for enlarg- 
ing the isolation hospital by adding another story to each of the 
wards. The expenditures have been as follows:

Total expenditure for 1906 $12,S 

Amount turned in from milk license lees 394.00 

The genera] expenses of the office have exceeded those of 1905 by 
a little over five hundred dollars, and of this increase Dearly four 
hundred dollars has been spent for antitoxin, the unusual number of 
eases of diphtheria and membranous croup which have occurred dur- 
ing the year having increased the demand for its use. 

The other items of office expense show hut slight increase. 

The expenses of the isolation hospital, not including the twenty- 
five hundred dollars allowed for its enlargement, show a considerable 
increase over those of 1905. This increase is principally for board 
and nursing, fuel and supplies, and was made necessary because of the 
larger number of patients treated. 

There have been no cases of smallpox during the year, and the 

expense of maintaining the hospital has been slight. 

Miss Judith Sherer, who for a great many years had charge of this 
hospital, and whose capable management and long experience in 
nursing the disease made her services most valuable to the board, 
died on May 20. Mrs. A. I). Sherer has been secured as matron of the 
hospital", and under her management we feel that the same degree of 
efficiency will be maintained. 

MEETINGS. 

Tin 3 regular weekly meetings of the board have been held, as usual, 
on Tuesday evening's. 

Forty-three regular meetings and three special meetings have been 
held. The number of special meeting's has been less than for several 
years past, because tenement property has been ]<ept in better sani- 
tary condition by the owners and also because, in many cases, the 



REPORT? OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH. 283 

inspectors have been able to adjust complaints and bring aboul better 
sanitary conditions withoul a special inspection by the board. 

BACTERIOLOGICAL LABORATORY. 

The principal part of the bacteriological work is scut to the state 
laboratory at Concord. l)ut upon request, or on Sundays and holidays, 
examinations for diphtheria arc made at our laboratory by Dr. A. G. 
Straw. It lias become the custom of physicians to depend largely 
upon the result of such examinations in determining cases of diph- 
theria and also in discharging patients. 

A smear slide is made from the culture, and in well-defined cases 
the germs may he seen under the microscope; thus a quick result is 
obtained, which is a great help in the successful treatment of cases. 
Where no positive result is obtained from a smear slide the culture 
is grown in the incubator a sufficient length of time and then ex- 
amined under the microscope. 

These tests are carefully' made and afford valuable assistance, hut 
should not be considered infallible where the clinical symptoms do not 
coincide with the result obtained. 

During the year 168 diphtheritic examinations were made, of which 
49 were positive, or true diphtheria, and 119 were negative. Forty-six 
of the negative results were for the discharge of patients. 

Tubercular, typhoid, and malaria outfits are furnished physicians, 
but the examinations arc made at the state laboratory. 

MILE INSPECTION. 

The inspection of milk has been conducted in much the same man- 
ner as in previous years. 

When the standard changed, on the first of October, a good many 
samples taken about that time were found below the legal standard 
in butter fats and solids. Many of these samples were taken from 
stores, and in several cases it was found that the clerks had been 
careless about mixing the milk when selling' it from the can. 

Dealers have in most cases seemed anxious to keep up the standard 
of their milk and have readily co-operated with the board in trying to 
bring about this result. 

The detailed information concerning the work of the year will be 
found in the report of the milk inspector, which is made a part of 
this report. 

PLUMBING INSPECTION. 

About the usual amount of plumbing work has been done this year. 
The laws have been well complied with and there have been no changes 
in the plumbing rules. 

The number of fixtures set. inspections made, etc., will lie found 
in the report of the plumbing inspector. 



284 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

WATEB SUPPLY. 

Less time and- attention is required in looking niter the waters of 
Lake Massabesic than in former years, when it was used as a sum- 
mer resort. Samples of water are taken from different parts of the 
lake every year and sent to the state laboratory for analysis. These 
analyses are kept on file at the office, and show little variation from 
year to year. 

That Manchester has one of the best water supplies in the country 
is beyond question, nor can the importance of this be overestimated 
as a large factor in the health of its citizens. 

ISOLATIOX HOSPITAL. 

The accommodations at the isolation hospital, which had become 
inadequate, have during the past year been greatly improved and 
enlarged by the addition of another story to each of the wards. The 
buildings have been painted and put in good repair and are well 
heated, lighted, and ventilated. The wards are supplied with anti- 
septic furniture, modern in every respect. There is a nurse's room and 
a diet kitchen connected with each ward. Each kitchen is furnished 
with an electric stove and cooking utensils, and food may be quickly 
prepared for the patient during the night. We have now accommoda- 
tion for nine patients in each building, with a chance to put in four 
extra beds when necessary. A new septic tank system, considered to 
be the most modern "sewage system, was installed during the year. 

Mrs. Carl E. Rydin is the efficient matron in charge, and fills the 
position in a manner most satisfactory to the board and to the pa- 
tients under her care. 

During the year thirty cases of diphtheria and seventeen eases of 
scarlet fever were eared for, and twenty-three nurses and attendants 
were accommodated. There is a constantly increasing demand for the 
use of this hospital, as its advantages become better known: and in 
cases which occur in boarding-houses or in tenements where it is im- 
possible to isolate a patient, the importance of a place of this kind 
cannot he overestimated. We feel that the cost of its maintenance 
is small compared to the advantages which it offers for the saving 
of life and in preventing the spread of infection. 

CONTAGIOUS IHSEA-1 6. 

During the year there were one hundred and ninety-seven cases of 
diphtheria and membranous croup, the largest number since 188?, 
when the records were first kept. It was because of this that $789.98 
was spent for antitoxin, and the number of deaths, which was forty- 
three, would doubtless have been greater, but for the generous use of 
this wonderful remedy. 



REPORT OF THE HOARD OF HEALTH. 285 

There were ninety-three cases of scarlet fever, which was of a mild 
l\ pe, only one death occurring during - the year. 

Thirty-two cases of typhoid fever with but five deal lis was the 
smallest number which has occurred since 1887, and several of these 
cases were contracted outside of the city. 

Pertussis, or whooping cough, has been unusually prevalent during 
the year and seventeen deaths have occurred. This board, believing 
that whooping cough should be reported and placarded like measles, 
passed a resolution to this effect, asking the state board of health to 
add it to tlie list of diseases to be reported, but up to the end of the 
year no action had been taken by them. 

The tables show some interesting comparisons and are worthy of 
inspection, as are also the reports of the inspectors. 

In conclusion we extend to the public at large, and the mayor and 
city government in particular, our thanks and appreciation for the 
assistance and encouragement received from them in the discharge of 
our duties. 

Respectfully submitted. 

J. E. A. LANOUETTE.

REPORT OF THE INSPECTOR OF PLUMBING AND MILK. 



Gentlemen of the Board of Health: 

I beg to submit the following report of the inspection of milk dur- 
ing the year 1906: 

Number of samples milk, shim milk, ami cream tested 6G8 

brought in by milk dealers and 

citizens 1S6 

collected by the inspectors 482 

sealed duplicate samples demanded 

and given 11 

below standard. April 1 to Septem- 
ber 30 28 

below standard January 1 to March 

31 and October 1 to December 31 59 

letters written to dealers and others 86 

dealers found selling without a license.... " 5 

wagons improperly marked 7 

Average butter fat from January 1 to March 31 and 

October 1 to December 31 3.828% 

Average butter fat from April 1 to September 30 3.706% 

Average acidity from January 1 to March 31 and Octo- 
ber 1 to December 31 .147% 

Average acidity from April 1 to September 30 .156% 

Average specific gravity at 60° F. from January 1 to 

March 31 and October 1 to December 31 1.03113 

Average specific gravity at 60° F. from April 1 to Sep- 
tember 30 1.03258 

Average butter fat in cream 33.76% 

Every sample was tested for fornialdehj'de and rnam r additional 
tests were made for colostrom cells, coloring- matter, carbonates, 
salicylic acid, boric acid, cream thickeners, total solids, milk serum, 
condensed milk and concentrated milk* 

Any citizen having a just complaint to make about his milk may do 
so' at the board of health office. 

Samples of milk should be brought in as soon as possible after being 
delivered, and in the original bottle or vessel, or in a perfectly clean 
bottle. At least one half pint is needed to make a complete analysis. 
The delivery of old^ milk should be made illegal. 

293 



294 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 



Milk over thirty-six hours old should not be delivered to customers. 
It is a well-known fact that the older the milk is when used the 
the food value and the greater the danger to the user. Milk should 
not be over twelve hours old when delivered to consumi 

One milkman was found selling cream preserved by formaldehyde, 
and was brought before police court. The case was bound over to the 
superior court and is still pending. The use of xoreservatives has prac- 
tically been abandoned, none being found in the milk tested during 
the past year. There has been a marked effort on the part of most of 
the milkmen to sell cleaner and better milk, and clean milk needs 
no preservative. 

In my opinion a systematic examination of the cow barns and a 
physical examination of cattle supplying milk to this city would be 
very valuable. This should be done by a veterinary surgeon, so that 
any cows which were diseased might not be overlooked. 

During the year I have notified several milk dealers to appear 
before the board for violating the milk laws, and this has proved ef- 
fective in stopping minor violations. 

The number of licenses granted during the year was 297; 110 of 
these were granted to milkmen, 142 to proprietors of stores, and 39 
to people keeping cows and selling milk from their premises. 

The sum of three hundred and ninety-four dollars was collected for 

license fees. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CARL O. SEAMAN, 

Milk Inspector.

Two hundred and thirty consultations with owners, tenants, and 
agents, plumbers, etc., were held. 

A total of 1,977 inspections were made of the work during its pro- 
gress and after its completion. 

Plumbers should get their notices for testing and inspection in 
early, thereby insuring more prompt and effective service. It often 
happens that I am called a long distance from the office and upon 
returning find another notice to go back in the same locality, thereby 
wasting valuable time, which might be saved by sending notices in 
early. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CARL O. SEAMAN. 
Inspector of Plumbing.

47 places, and such nuisances were abated either by entering the 
sewer or carrying away in some manner not offensive.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF BEALTH. 297 

In doing the work of the department it has been necessary to make 
1,177 calls and to write 385 letters. 

Four hundred and ninety-nine complaints have been investigated. 

In 137 cases the inspectors have been able to give relief, and in 62 
cases it was found that no cause existed or that same was beyond the 
control of the department. 

Forty complaints were made against the scavenger service, in each 
case the proper parties were notified and relief afforded. 

Forty persons were found throwing garbage in the back streets 
and lake and were warned against the practice. 

Private swill collectors have been warned 68 times to be neater in 
their work. 

Twenty-five dead animals have been properly disposed of. 

One hundred and sixty-two hens and small animals have been re- 
moved from cellars. 

Fifty-three swine and cows have been discovered being kept within 
the sanitary limits of the city without licenses. The same were 
ordered removed or licenses procured. 

Twenty notices have been prepared and served and proper returns 
made. 

Ninety catch-basins or street cesspools have been inspected, and 
23 have been flushed or repaired by order of this department. 

A sanitary inspection has been made of 27 bakeshops and 13 stores, 
and 8 bakeshops and 3 stores have been ordered cleaned. Theatres 
have been inspected 3 times, circuses 4, and sausage factories 17 times. 

The dumps have been inspected 24 times; found unsanitary 5 times. 

One hundred and five nuisances not otherwise classified have been 
abated through the efforts of this department. 

Householders have been given 2 permits to clean their own vaults. 

Permits to the number of 1,601 have been granted for the burial 
and removal of dead bodies, and the returns forwarded to the city 
registrar. 

A statement of mortality has been prepared each month and copies 
sent to about two hundred and fifty 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. Samples of water and of oysters were sent to the state 
laboratory for analysis. Four hundred and eighty-two samples of 
milk were collected. 

Contagious and infectious diseases have been reported as follows: 
Measles, 23; diphtheria, 172; typhoid fever, 32; scarlet fever, 93; mem- 
branous croup, 25; smallpox, 0; total 345- 

The inspectors were unable to trace the cause in 259 cases, in 76 
cases the connection with some previous case was clearly traceable. 



298 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

Ten cases were contracted outside of the city and in one case it was 
reasonable to attribute the cause to insanitary surroundings. 

In some cases disinfectants were 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 department fur- 
nished the disinfectants. 

In some cases patients were found well isolated, and in other cases 
inspectors were obliged to order isolation, and in all cases to give in- 
structions as to the steps to be taken. Seven people were found break- 
ing quarantine, and 3 were arrested. 

Houses were watched to see that the rules of isolation were com- 
plied with, and 21 funerals were attended to prevent a too public 
observance of the same. 

One thousand seven hundred and nineteen rooms where diseases had 
existed were fumigated by the inspectors. 

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

The shores of Lake Massabesic 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.

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE CITY 

LIBRARY. 



To the Board of Mayor and Aldermen: 

The report of the trustees of the city library as to the conduct of 
the library for 1906 is embodied in the report of the librarian, which 
accompanies this. 

In Ma}' Hon. Nathan P. Hunt, who for many years had been a 
trustee and clerk and treasurer of the board, tendered his resignation, 
and Edwin F. Jones was chosen to succeed him. 

During - his long - service Judge Hunt performed much faithful and 
painstaking labor for the library, and the citizens of Manchester owe 
him a large debt of gratitude for the deep interest he manifested in

work done by him. 

Respectfull}' submitted. 

EDWIN F. JONES, 
Clerk for the Board of Trustees.

LIBRA RIANYS REPORT. 



To the Trustees of the City Library, Manchester, N. 11.: 

GENTLEMEN 1 : — The report of the librarian for the year 1906 is here- 
with presented, being- the fifty-third annual report of the City Library. 

The. renovating of the library building, which was begun in 1905, 
has been completed. The building is now in better condition than 
it has been for many years. The walls and woodwork, which had 
long been black with dirt, have been washed and repainted and the 
bookcases varnished, giving the rooms a much cleaner and more 
cheerful aspect. The outside of the building also has received atten- 
tion, having had necessary painting and repairs. The old fence about 
the grounds has been taken away and a stone curbing put in its 
place, which greatly improves the general appearance of the premises. 
If the lawn were put in good shape and some repairs made in the 
basement the building would be in very good condition. 

ASSISTANTS. 

The work of the library this year has been carried on under diffi- 
culties caused by the loss of several of its assistants, who had been 
with us for some time. The general prosperity of the country has 
made such a demand for labor that it has been difficult to find boys 
to till the vacancies. In fact we have been one or two workers short 
for a good part of the year. The changing of old assistants for 
new, untrained ones is very detrimental to the efficiency of the library. 
If the institution is to be an educational force in the community, as 
it should be, its workers must have both education and training. It 
is impossible to get these requirements for seventy-live cents a day. 
and it would seem to be false economy to lose those who have learned 
to serve the patrons well, rather than to pay them enough to retain 
their services. The training of new workers is an expensive process, 
both to the library and its users. 

children's room. 

The library needs many things to bring it to its highest state of 
efficiency and usefulness, but the greatest of all its needs is a chil- 
dren's room. Very few libraries in these days are without this im- 
portant adjunct. It is a department of library work which has been 

302 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE CITY LIBRARY. 303 

tried for many years and found to yield the best of results. It is 
needed in every community, but especially with a population such 
as that of Manchester, where many of the children have no home 
influences which would lead them to read, or train them in the use oi 
boohs. With this class of people the reading habit, if formed at all, 
must be acquired dining- childhood. The children's room with its 
trained assistant has been found very effective in inculcating- this 
reading habit and in giving the children a taste for good literature. 

No better expenditure of money could be made, I feel confident, 
than that which would provide for the children a light, well-ventilated 
room made attractive with books, pictures, and flowers and presided 
over by one who has the welfare of the children at heart and who is 
competent to guide them in their reading. I earnestly hope that 
steps may be taken to provide such a room during the coming year, 
but even if immediate action is taken to this end,, some time must 
elapse before such a room could be ready for use, and meanwhile 
we are losing opportunities for helping the children. I would there- 
fore recommend that an assistant be engaged at once to give her 
attention especially to the children. Such an assistant is very much 
needed in the reading room at the present time for the good of the 
children and the comfort of the grown people. She could maintain 
order, insure the proper handling of books, guide the children in 
their reading, assist adults in the use of the catalog, and answer 
questions. It is impossible for the busy attendant at the desk to give 
sufficient attention to these matters. 

CIRCULATION. 

The circulation this year has taken a decided drop, being a little 
over two thousand less than in 1905. For this decrease there may be 
two reasons. In times of business depression it has often been no- 
ticed that there is a marked increase in the use of libraries. Those 
out of employment have time on their hands which they are glad 
to while away in reading. But in the present state of business pros- 
perity almost everyone is occupied, and out of working hours there 
is money to spend for amusements and shopping. 

Another reason for the decrease may be found in the small num- 
ber of books purchased during the year. It is just as impossible for 
a library to show, a steady, healthy growth in circulation without 
frequent accessions of new books as it is for a half-fed child to grow 
normally. Books are the life blood of a library and must constantly 
be reinforced by new material to insure life and activity. 

In 1854 those interested in the library decided that one thousand 
dollars for the purchase of books and periodicals was the smallest 
amount on which the library could thrive. This was a liberal sum for 
the days when Manchester numbered only about seventeen thousand 



304 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

people, but now that it has more than trebled its population the 
amount is entirely inadequate to furnish the library with such booksi 
as it needs to fulfill its object of existence. Not only does the in- 
crease in population call for a like increase in appropriation, but 
the great development of library work during- the last half century 
necessitates a larger expenditure if we would pretend to keep abreast 
of the times. 

We ought to buy much more liberally in the line of juvenile works 
and books suitable Cor work with the schools. We should never be 
without good editions of the standard authors and enough copies of 
them so that they need not be called tor in vain. 

I believe that we should also furnish books in foreign "languages for 
that portion of our adult population which cannot read the English 
language with case. This practice has been followed with satisfac- 
tory results by other manufacturing cities where it has been tried. 
The few French books which the library has owned have been much 
called for and are now prett\- well worn out. 

The matter of newspapers is one which, perhaps, deserves some 
consideration. In is:,."), according to the records, the library spent 
$35.49 for newspapers; in L905 it -pent $14.20 for the same purpose. 
Is this as it should be? 

< Ai ai.o<;i\<;. 

In addition to cataloging the new hooks as added to the library, 
the analytical work on the class of collective biography, which was 
begun last year, has been completed. This done we started another 
work of equal importance, namely, the making of a card catalog 
for the children. There lias long been great need of such a catalog, 
for, not knowing some definite book to call for. the child had no way 
of finding what juvenile books we had in the library. The most he 
could do was to fumble aimlessly through the cards in the general 
catalog until he found some title which sounded to him as though 
it might mean an interesting book. Of course, this led many times 
to the getting of an utterly unsuitable and unsatisfactory book, which 
meant time and work thrown away both for the child and the assist- 
ant. Now we have a separate list of all the juvenile books in the 
library entered under author, title, and subject, and placed in a cabinet 
by themselves. Nearly six thousand cards were typewritten for thia 
list. 



A few changes have been made during the year, which we believe 
have been in the line of progress. In February the following notice 
was given: "As the library is not able to furnish a sufficient number 
of copies to supply the demand for the more popular books it has 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE CITY LIBRARY. 305 

been decided to issue such books for seven days only in order that 
they may serve more people within a given time." This rule went 
into effect March first and has seemed to prove very satisfactory. 

In May it was decided by vote of your honorable board to transfer 
certain law reports from the city library to the new county court 
house, where, in connection with the law library in that building-, it 
was believed that they would be more accessible to the lawyers and 
therefore more useful. Accordingly on May 29, 1906, three hundred 
and fifty-four volumes, comprising the law reports of Maine, New 
Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, were removed 
from the city library and deposited in the law library at the county 
court house. 

In June it was decided not to cover with the paper cover any books 
that did not need it. The practice of covering library books was 
thoroughly tried and discarded by libraries twenty-five years or so 
ago. Mr. Dana, one of the foremost librarians of this country, has 
said, "Don't cover your books. The brown paper cover is an insult 
to a good book, a reproach to every reader of it, an incentive to care- 
less handling, and an expense without good return." In taking this 
step, therefore, we have simply fallen in line with the most approved 
practice of the day, and in so doing have saved expense and made 
our library more attractive. 

In July the oil portraits, which had always stood upon the book- 
cases, were hung upon the walls, thereby adding much to the dignity 
of the room. 

In October a new cabinet of modern design was purchased for the 
juvenile catalog" referred to above, and placed in the children's 
corner, where it does good service daily. 

In December some much needed Crocker book braces were ob- 
tained. These have helped greatly towards keeping the shelves in 
an orderly condition, besides decreasing binders' bills by preventing 
the falling of the books from the high shelves. 

BULLETIN. 

A bulletin is greatly needed that our readers may know what books 
are being added to the library. The local papers have most kindly 
printed our monthly lists of additions, and this has been of great 
service to the library and to its patrons, but it is at best only a sub- 
stitute. A bulletin in attractive form should be isstied monthly or 
quarterly and distributed freely. Lists of books on selected subjects 
should also be printed and circulated among the borrowers. It is 
only by thus advertising our possessions that we shall' bring them to 
their fullest use. 



306 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPOBTS. 

StTNDAYS. 

The use of the library on Sundays was four hundred and two more 
than lasl year. The largest number in attendance on any one day 
was two hundred and forty-four on December 2, and the smallesl 
number was nineteen on June 10. On inclemenl davs in the winter 
the room is taxed to the utmost and sometimes there are not seats 
enough to accommodate all who come. From fifty to one hundred 
children in a room all at one time is not conducive to enjoyable read- 
ing or studs for the majority of adults. The continual coming and 
going of the children and the passing to and from the desk creates 
more or less disturbance which cannot lie avoided. It is impossible 
also to Keep the air as pure as it should be, for there is no way of 
ventilating except by opening windows, which method has serious 
drawbacks with a crowded room in stormy weather. Here again we 
feel the urgent need of a separate room for the children, quite as 
much this time for the sake of the grown people as for the children. 

INVENTORY. 

The inventory taken this year shows thirty-eight books unac- 
counted for; fourteen of these were fiction and twenty-four non- 
action. Twelve only were juvenile books, which would indicate that 
the children were more honest or more careful than their elders. 
This is the smallest number reported missing since 1901. 

EXHIBITIONS. 

The exhibits this year have been thirteen in number, eight of which 
have consisted of souvenir postals. Over nine hundred cards have 
been displayed during the year, showing views of California, Oregon. 
Washington, Alaska, the Canadian Rockies, the Yellowstone National 
Park, Switzerland, the Netherlands. Germany, Italy. France. Turkey. 
Spain, Cuba, Porto Pico, Jamaica, and Bermuda. Besides these pos- 
tals, which apparently have been very much enjoyed, we were fortu- 
nate enough to secure from F. Schuyler Mathews the loan of thirty- 
two of his water color paintings of birds. 

In the late winter we exhibited a collection of pictures descriptive 
of the brown-tail and gypsy moths and the ravages caused by them 
at Medford, Mass. The design of this exhibit was to arouse in people 
a realizing sense of the harm done by these pests and the need of 
vigorous action to destroy them; also how to identify and combat 
them. This exhibit was collected and loaned by Mr. Henry P. Sa un- 
dersoil of this city and later acquired by the State Agricultural College 
to send about the state for exhibit. 

The New Hampshire .Society for the Prevent ion of Consumption 
sent us a \cr\ interesting 1 exhibit, and the Camera Club of Manchester 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF THE CITY LIBRARY. 307 

Loaned us one hundred and ninety-nine photographs made by its mem- 
bers. Forty-eight reproductions of Rembrandt's works were shown 
at the time that his tercentenary was celebrated abroad. Besides all 
these picture exhibitions, numbering some thirteen hundred and 
sixty pictures, we have shown about one hundred different species of 
flowers, which have been brought in to us by those interested in bot- 
any. 

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS. 

We are greatly indebted to many who. during the past year, have 
shown their interest in the library by loaning postals, photographs, 
and other pictures for exhibition, or by giving books, magazines or 
pamphlets. Our list of donations for 1906 is larger than ever before, 
for people are finding out that the library is glad to receive books and 
magazines which they no longer care to house. Nearly five thousand 
magazines have been given us this year from which we have been 
able to add one hundred and sixty-seven bound volumes to our sets of 
periodicals, besides numerous other volumes waiting to be bound. 

We wish also to express our appreciation of the continued courte- 
sies of the local papers in printing our lists and notices, thereby serv- 
ing not only us but the public. 

To the trustees and the members of the staff, who by their interest 
and co-operation have made possible whatever of progress has been 
accomplished during the past year, I tender my personal thanks. 

Respectfully submitted, 

F. MABEL W T INCHELL, 

Librarian.

vogue since this department was created and will be continued. 

In 1905 a new method (in this office) of keeping orders was begun, 
a card 4x6 inches being used setting forth the nature of the order, 
date ordered, date done, and by whom done, transit and level book 
and plan references (for convenience) and each card numbered. This 
method was originally intended to do away with the many inconven- 
iences due to keeping orders in an order book. Beginning in May. 
1906, the cost keeping feature was added. This last method has proved 
satisfactory beyond expectation, a brief description of which follows: 

Size of all cards, 5x8 inches; they are divided at the present time 
into eight classes of work, street and park commission (cards or or- 
ders), embracing all work done by this office for the street and park 
commissioners, which includes all street, sewer, and park work, and 
might properlj- be designated location and construction engineering. 

City engineer (cards or orders) include all preliminary office and 
field work, street surveys, levels for profile, cross sections, estimates, 
plans, details, etc., for the street and park commission and individuals. 

Miscellaneous (cards or orders) include the setting of all sidewalk 
grades, staking out street lines for abutters on highways and for the 
staking out of sidewalk construction for any property owner or con- 
tractor.

card is divided similar to a transit book page and is used for all sur- 
reys and field work for assessors, and is used as a loose leaf field book. 
One half of the back of this card is used for the cost record, and the 
other half is divided similar to the city engineer cards: the 5x8 inches 
card is divided the same as the outside of the folded card and is used 
for •"assessors' office work," that is. making working plans, tracings, 
blue prints, etc. 

Under office work "stick" includes all drawing materials: under 
field work "stock" includes stakes, hubs, tacks, etc.; each "team" is 
charged in the cost record at 20 cents per hour (based on 312 7%-hour 
days per year). 

This price will cover cost, repairs, keeping, interest, and replacing 
new every ten years.

plan and profile work done under city engineer cards or orders. This 
table gives the location and limits of the several jobs, the length or 
distance covered, the number of lines of levels taken, the equivalent 
distance (under total distance) of a single line of levels, the cost of 
labor, team and total cost of field work, the cost of labor, stock and 
total cost of office work, and the total cost of field and office work of 
each job. This table is given in detail in order To show the actual 
cost of field and office work of each job. .

CHIEF ENGINEER, FIRE DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF THE FIRE ENGINEER. 



CHIE.F ENGTNEiER'S OFFICE, 

Centkal Station, Xo. S Vine Street, 

Manchester, X. H., December 31, 190(3. 
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-eighth annual report of the 
Manchester fire department for the year ending December 31, 1906, 
it being the sixty-first of the city. 

During the year 1906 the department has responded to one hundred 
and eleven (111) bell alarms, and two hundred and fifteen (215) still 
alarms, making a total of three hundred and twenty-six (326). There 
were five (5) double, or second-alarms, two of which were needless 
and pulled by unauthorized persons. There were one hundred and 
twelve (112) chimney fires, forty-two (42) grass or brush fires, fifteen 
(15) for city dump. There were five (5) false bell alarms and nine 
(9) false stills, the latter caused by unadjusted thermostats in shoe 
factories. Three out of town calls (2-2-2) were for brush fires on the 
outskirts of the city, but within the city limits, and one of the stills 
was for assistance asked for from Hooksett by telephone. Owing to 
the delay in getting railroad transportation, the "Ayer House," where 
the fire originated, and Eobie's store, and the postoffice opposite were 
entirely consumed before our arrival. 

In responding - to and working at fires during the year, one hundred 
and fifty thousand one hundred and thirty-seven (150,137) feet of 
hose have been laid, vised four thousand eight hundred and fifty-nine 
(4,859) feet of ladders, one hundred and seventy-one (171) ponj- ex- 
tinguishers, and eighty-six (86) chemical tanks. 

No very serious fire has occurred during the year, the most exten- 
sive ones being the Geisel laundry and Novelty Printing Company, on 
Hanover street, February 10; and the armor y of the New Hampshire 
National Guard, February 28, and the Maxwell Ice Company's ice 
houses, August 16. 

A summary of the amount of property endangered, the amount of 
insurance carried on said property, the damage sustained, and the 
amount of insurance paid (details of which appear in the following 
pages) as near as could be ascertained are as follows:

REPORT OF THE FIRE ENGINEER. 415 



THE BUILDINGS. 

The Webster-street engine house, station of Engine and Ladder 
No. 5, has had very substantial alterations made on the outside walls, 
as suggested in former reports; still there are alterations on the in- 
side needed: the changing over of the stalls of the truck horses and 
additional stall to arrange to run a two-horse hose wagon in place 
of the one-horse hose carriage. By doing away with the hose tower, 
putting drying racks in the cellar for drying hose, such an arrange- 
ment can be made at comparatively small expense. The much-needed 
box stall could then be constructed. 

The Lake avenue engine house, the station of Engine and Ladder 
Company No. 3, has been remodeled so as to accommodate a three- 
horse hitch on both the steamer and truck. 

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 ladder trucks (one an eighty-five foot aerial, carrying other 
ladders), 1 supply wagon, S exercise wagons, 1 chief's wagon, 1 spare 
one-horse hose carriage, located as follows: 

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

North 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 wagon. 

McGregorville Station: One second size Amoskeag steamer, 1 one- 
horse hose cari-iage, 1 two-horse hook and ladder truck, 1 exercise 
wagon. 

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

Webster-Street 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 Elm-Street Station: One two-horse combination hose 
wagon, carrying ladders, 1 exercise wagon. 

Wilson Hill Station: One two-horse combination chemical and 
hose wagon, 1 exercise wasron. 



416 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

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 Fails, l two-wheeled "jumper" in basemenl 
of \V. P. Farmer's barn cellar, Candia road, corner Hanover street, 
.". sleds used as hose sleds in the winter, 1 repair wagon for tire-alarm 
telegra ph. 

FIRE-ALARM TELEGRAPH. 

I have repeatedly called attention to the imperative necessity of 
putting the lire alarm wires under ground, particularly in the business 
portion of the city. The risk of the overhead system is too great to 
be continued longer than is actually necessary, as three practical 
illustrations during the year have shown. At one time, owing to the 
heavy sleet causing high tension crosses, EVERY CIRCUIT of the entire 
system was out of service for several hours, and some of them for 
thirty hours. Six new boxes have been ordered and will be added to 
the system in the early part of the year. 

TirE HORSES. 

There are forty-eighl (48) horses owned by this department. Three 
or four of them have nearly passed their usefulness tor tire purj 
and .should be replaced by new ones. Seven wire bought last year 
and five sold or exchanged. 

i A»l A I Til S. 

"The great leveler Death" has entered our ranks and summoned 
hence Assistant Chief Fred S. Bean. 

He departed this life March Id. L906, after a short illness. He was 
for many years connected with this department, first joining Engine 
Company No. f March 4, l s 7:>, where he served faithfully until eli 
to the board of engineers January 1, 1884, and, with the exception of 
the years 1899 and 1900. continued a member of the board. He enjoyed 
his calling, was a faithful and earnest worker, and his knowledge of 
steam fire engines was not surpassed by any one.

His funeral, which occurred Monday, March 19, was attended by 
the entire department, .together with old-time friends from other 
fire departments. 

At the state armory fire, February 28, Lieut. Frank D. Hardy of Hose 
Company No. 3 was overcome by smoke and was conveyed to his 
home in a hack; was off duty four days. At same fire Mr. William 
P. Jones of Truck Company No. 1 was injured by nail in foot, off duty 
eight days, and Albert A. Puffer of Hose 1 injured on barbed wire 
fence; off duty seventeen days. 

At the Maxwell ice houses, August 1G, Frank W. Tebbetts, driver 
of hose carriage of Engine and Ladder Company No. 6, burned on 
hands and face, off duty twenty-six days; Birney K. Gott, substitute 
member of Engine Company No. 4, hand cut; off duty seventeen days. 

Driver Henry C. Parsons of Hose Company No. 1 received kick from 
horse, while working- about the stable September 27; off duty 
Iwentj'-five days. 

At the fire of drug storehouse of Amoskeag Manufacturing Com- 
pany, September 13, Harrison H. Cole, member of Truck Company No. 
I, fell from second floor to railroad track, injuring him so severely as 
to confine him to the hospital several weeks; off duty ninety-four 
days. 

THE FIREMEN'S RELIEF ASSOCIATION. 

The department held a benefit ball on December 14 to replenish its 
treasury, the proceeds of which netted six hundred thirty-one dollars 
and forty cents ($(331.40). The late Angeline B. Cilley gave by her 
will two hundred dollars. Several other donations have been received, 
as will be seen by the following:

( ON< II SION. 

Whenever the Somerville station is completed and ready for occu- 
pancy, I would recommend transferring to thai station Engine No. 
;;. now at Lake avenue station, and putting in its place one of the pres- 
ent first si/e Amoskeag steamers. As Engine Companj No. :; responds 
to many of the boxes in the business section of the city on first alarm 
and all on the second, it would afford better protection for the com- 
pact part of the city. 

I would renew my recommendation several times previously made 
for the exchange of the one-horse reel of Hose Company V. 1 to a 
two-horse hose wagon, and. as opportunities offer, similar changes of 
the reels of Engine and Ladder Companies Nos. 5 and 6. 

I would recommend the purchase of two thousand (2,000) feet of 
hose for the department, and with the equipping of . the Somerville 
station, twenty-five hundred (2,500) feet more of double jacket knit 
hose of a .reliable make, and of such a quality as can be used to ad- 
vantage in our hose wagons. 



REPORT OF THE FIRE ENGINEER. 419 

The necessity of storage sheds becomes more and more apparenl for 
suitably earing for carts, sleds, and other apparatus, and no place is 
more suitable than at the Wilson Hill station. 

I would also again recommend the immediate purchase of at Least 
three life or jumping nets for the ladder trucks. 

I would also recommend a change of the ordinance that will enable 
this board to appoint an additional permanent man on the Chem- 
ical engine, thereby increasing the efficiency of this company, partic- 
ularly during meal hours and regular nights off. 

I earnestly hope the incoming city government will early consider 
the foregoing recommendations, and give them the careful attention 
I believe thej- deserve.

vigilance to prevent unnecessary alarms, and all others -who have in 
any way assisted this department, I desire to return my grateful ac- 
knowledgments. *

companies on their second run to the box from which the alarm has 
been sounded will answer all first-run boxes of the absent companies; 
and in ease engines are out that would respond to another box, then

does not call for a third alarm, companies on their second run will 
then answer to all other boxes.

REPORTS 

OF THE 

TRUSTEES OF CEMETERIES AND 
CEMETERY FUNDS. 



EEPOETS OF THE TRUSTEES OF CEMETERIES 
AND CEMETERY FUINDS. 



To the Board of Mayor and Aldermen and Cemetery Trustees: 

Gentlemen: — The following is the report of the sub-trustees of the 
Pine Grove cemetery for the 3'ear 1906: 

The Pine Grove cemetery and the Merrill Yard remained during the 
year under the superintendence of John H. Erskine, who, with his 
assistants, cared for the two cemeteries along the same general lines 
as have been followed for several years. The work has been satis- 
factory, and it has been generally conceded that the appearance of 
the grounds has been extremely good. Although the appropriations 
amounted to twelve thousand one hundred dollars, the actual cost 
to the taxpajers, after deducting the receipts from the sale of lots 
and the sums paid by lot owners and received from the cemetery 
fund for water and the care of lots, and the miscellaneous receipts 
from interments; sale of flowers, and sundries, has been little more 
than three thousand dollars for the year. 

The sub-trustees feel confident that an equal sum of public money 
is not spent for any more advantageous purpose than is this. 

During the year the buildings occupied by the superintendent for 
a residence were painted. The grading of the section of the Pine 
Grove cemetery known as Chapel Lawn, under perpetual care, was 
completed. Hillside Lawn, under semi-perpetual care, was extended 
two hundred feet to the north and is ready to be plotted in the spring. 

Two hundred feet in length of the border east of the last named 
lawn was graded and grassed. Driveways to the extent of eleven 
hundred and fifty square yards were macadamized. The brush and 
rubbish were removed from four acres in the southern part of the 
cemetery, and this section is in readiness to be graded into another 
lawn for lots under semi-perpetual care, which must be provided the 
coming year. 

By the kindness of the trustees of the cemetery fund, following 
their custom of several years' standing, one thousand dollars was 
turned over to the sub-trustees, and with that sum one hundred and 
four lots, with the paths surrounding them, in the older part of 
the grounds, were graded and grassed. This annual donation from 
the cemetery fund is in accord with the purposes and terms of the 

485 



486 ANNUAL OFFICIAL REPORTS. 

ordinance and contracts under which the perpetual care fund was 
created, and it has enabled the sub-trustees to make much needed 
improvements, which could not otherwise have been made. No money 
has been expended to better advantage in the cemetery than these 
donations, and the public are indebted to the trustees of the fund for 
the opportunity thus furnished by them to remedy the unsightly 
condition of the older sections of the grounds, where manj T of the lot 
owners are dead or have moved away from the city, whose lots have 
received and can in no other way receive the needed attention to put 
them in a condition at all in keeping with the newer sections. 

Another greenhouse, equal in size to the first one, was built last 
summer at an expense of fifteen hundred dollars. It is thought that 
the present accommodations will be ample for several j'ears. The 
greenhouses enable many more flowers and plants to be set out in 
the grounds, as the cost is considerably less than would be the cost 
of purchasing instead of raising them, and a much greater variety im- 
possible. The greenhouses will also be a source of revenue. In 1906 
the sum of three hundred fourteen dollars and sixty-seven cents was 
received from the sale of flowers, and one thousand and sixty-seven 
plants and shrubs were set out in the grounds. 

During the year several of the older hydrants were found to be 
rusty and worn so that they had to be repaired, and it is a matter of 
only a short time when many of the water pipes will have to be taken 
up and replaced. 

In the year 1906 three hundred and fifteen bodies were buried in 
Pine Grove cemetery. Fourteen were removed from one lot to 
another. Up to January 1, 1907, seven thousand eight hundred and 
twenty-five interments had been made in this cemetery. 

The total number of lots sold in this cemetery up to January 1, 
1907, was twenty-nine hundred and sixty-two. In 1906 five lots were 
sold on Chapel Lawn, three on Riverside Lawn, and thirty-three on 
Cedar Lawn, all under perpetual care, and thirty-two on Hillside 
Lawn, under semi-perpetual care, by which is always meant that the 
lots are to be kept suitably watered and grassed and the grass kept 
clipped. Two lots were sold on Swedish Lawn and eight single graves 
on the same lawn. Six single graves were sold last year on Wood- 
side Lawn, making a total of twenty-seven up to Januarj- 1, 1907. To 
the same date one hundred and fifty-seven single graves had been 
sold on Swedish Lawn. ' These figures show that the provision for 
single grave lots is appreciated and demanded by the people. 

There remain unsold lots under perpetual care as follows: on Chapel 
Lawn, fifty; on Riverside Lawn, five; on Cedar Lawn, thirty-six. Semi- 
perpetual care lots unsold on Hillside Lawn number fifty-four. Ordi- 
nary lots remaining unsold on Acacia Lawn are five, and on Swedish 
Lawn, under conditions peculiar to that lawn, twenty lots remain un- 



REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF CEMETERIES. 487 

sold. On Swedish Lawn four hundred and fourteen single graves are 
lotted for sale, and on Woodside Lawn there are one hundred and one 
unsold single grave lots. 

The average number of men employed through the year 1906 was 
sixteen. Each year the amount of work increases and must continue 
to do so. With the appropriations, extreme economy is required and 
little can be done in the way of extra or special work outside of the 
routine care of the grounds. The sub-trustees hail the growing idea 
in the minds of many of the citizens that special provisions be made 
for the beautifying of the northerly portion of the grounds, where 
nature has furnished everything but money and manual labor to 
produce a small lake in the midst of a grove, which would be a most 
effective ornament to any public ground. It is hoped that the money 
may be appropriated to pay for the work of thus assisting nature. 

At the Merrill Yard the appropriation of one hundred dollars was 
nearly all expended. Of course the results were small, but the grounds 
were kept in good order, and their condition is much improved over 
what it used to be before the city assumed charge. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EDWIN F. JONES, 
Clerk for the Sub-Trustees.

REPORT OF THE CITY SOLICITOR. 



Manchester, X. H., January 1, 1907. 
To the City Councils: 

I herewith submit my annual report as solicitor for the year 1906. 
No new suits were brought against the city, but several minor claims 
for damages caused b} r alleged defective sewers, and trifling claims 
for highway damages were adjusted. Proceedings were brought 
against the city protesting against the seating of an alderman, grow- 
ing out of an election contest. 

The actions, Wilkins v. City and Manchester v. Hodge, are still 
pending in court, with the probabilities favoring an early settlement. 
The city is at present exceptionally free from litigation.

WATERING STREETS. 

All watering carts, standpipe, and fountains were repaired, painted,

ated both day and night.
