CITY GOVERNMENT 



ORGANIZATION OF CITY GOVERNMENT 



Tuesday, January 6, 1925. 

The members of the city government for the municipal 
year of 1925, having met for organization, agreeably to the 
provisions of the city charter, the convention was called to 
order by His Honor Mayor Kingsbury at ten o'clock in the 
forenoon. 

Mayor Kingsbury made the announcement that, having 
been officially notified of his election to the office of mayor for 
the current municipal term, he was present for the purpose of 
taking the oath of office. The oath of office was administered 
by Frank H. Whitcomb, a Justice of the Peace, who introduced 
the mayor to the Aldermen and Councilmen and to the other 
citizens who were present. 

After roll-call by the clerk, Mayor Kingsbury administered 
the oath of office to the following named members of the board 
of aldermen and councilmen, to-wit: 

BOARD OF ALDERMEN 

Ward 1.— Merrick S. Tibbetts. 
Ward 2.— Charles F. Robbins. 
Ward 3. — Leroy E. Fiske. 
Ward 4.— Ronald P. Bach. 
Ward 5. — Frank R. Bennett. 

BOARD OF COMMON COUNCIL 

Ward 1. — Forest L. Carey. 

Stephen W. Pollock. 
Walter A. Loiselle. 



6 CITY OP KEENE 

Ward 2. — Verne C. Swan. 
Ralph W. Newell. 
Elmer S. Hildreth. 

Ward 3.— Arthur T. Coogan. 
Warren Delano. 
George F. Kingsbury. 

Ward 4. Arthur H. Chase. 
Joseph E. Davis. 
Roy A. Sullivan. 

Ward 5. — Roger W. Goodnow. 
Joseph A. Bareomb. 
Fred 0. H. Hamblett. 

Prayer was offered by the Rev, N. Addison Baker. 

Prayer offered by the Rev. N. Addison Baker at the 
Inauguration of the City Government, 1925 ; 

Almighty God our heavenly Father as Thou hast 
set us all in communities, binding us together by sacred 
and holy ties, these Thy servants have now assembled 
to take upon themselves the solemn obligation of their 
respective offices. 

We trust that it is indeed true that this outward 
ceremony is the real witness of the presence of Thy 
spirit in the affairs of government. 

From out the great company of citizens these 
officers have been elected, and their personal interests 
have become subordinate to the common good. 

If it be possible, may the term that is opening 
before us be the most prosperous our city has enjoyed. 
But if the time is not yet fulfilled may all labor in 
faithfulness with the tasks that are at hand. 

And when the day of life is over and the evening 



ANNUAL REPORT f 

shadows fall may all who have participated in govern- 
ment here, feel that they have had a share in an 
eternal destiny. 

Thus may Thy kingdom come and Thy good will be 
done forever. Amen. 

After the prayer Mayor Kingsbury delivered his inaugural 
address. Frank H. Whitcomb was elected city clerk and 
Charles S. Wright city messenger, and the councils then ad- 
journed until 7.30 o'clock. 

At 7.30 o'clock in the evening the common council organ- 
ized by the choice of Arthur T. Coogan as president and Harry 
E. Gale as clerk. 



CITY OF KEENE 



THE MAYOR'S ADDRESS 



Members of the City Councils : 

In accordance with the ordinances we have met this morn- 
ing and assumed the administration of the city's business for 
the coming year. These duties require, not only the responsi- 
bility for careful, efficient and economical management, but a 
considerable sacrifice of time and effort, which I hope may be 
freely given as we go forward in the hope of a profitable and 
progressive year. Our pledge to perform these duties faithfully 
and impartially must sometimes mean the sacrifice of personal 
desires and prejudices for the broader viewpoint of the city's 
welfare and we must all realize that, for this year, our efforts 
must be measured by a community rather than a private inter- 
est. 

Like the directors of a business corporation, the city coun- 
cils must plan for ever increasing progress and, in order to best 
familiarize yourselves with the questions that are to come be- 
fore you, a careful study is urged of the city report for the 
past year, wherein is detailed the work of the various depart- 
ments. 

During the past year, the city ordinances as published ten 
years ago, together with those since adopted, have been com- 
piled, revised and published and are now in your hands. Your 
early and careful study of the city charter, ordinances and 
rules of order will give you a broader understanding of the 
principles, the laws and the procedure under which we must 



ANNUAL REPORT 9 

work, that cannot fail to result in more efficient and expedi- 
tious work. 

I would like to call your attention to the fact that you are 
starting the second half century of Keene as a city. It would 
be interesting to make an extended analysis of Keene 's prog- 
ress during that time, when our valuation has advanced from 
four to six millions, and to compare the civic advantages we 
enjoy today with those of 1874. Lack of time prevents, but 
can we not carry into our work an inspiration from the thought 
of all the faith, the time and the effort that the members of all 
these previous administrations have so worthily given to the 
upbuilding of our city? 

It is customary at this time for the mayor to present to the 
councils a brief review of the work and conditions of the lead- 
ing departments, particularly as they relate to recommenda- 
tions or to matters that may come before you for consideration. 

FINANCE 
One of the early requirements of each year is the adoption 
of a budget, in order that the routine work of the various de- 
partments need not be interrupted or the city's credit impaired. 
On pages 276-277 of the city report you will find the finance 
committees estimate of expenses for the coming year. This has 
been made through consultation with committees and depart- 
ment heads, coupled with statutory and other fixed expenses 
and I believe it a careful, conservative estimate of the city's 
needs. While the total is approximately $18,000 more than 
last years estimate, over $12,000 of the increase is in statutory 
obligations in the payment of bonds and interest made neces- 
sary by the water improvement bonds. This increase should 
largely and rightly be taken care of by the increase in water 



10 CITY OF KEENE 

rates, and the amount recommended to be raised by taxation, 
$170,000, is only $10,000 more than was raised last year. 

Last year the tax rate was reduced to the lowest point 
since the world war. I believe it is the lowest of any city in 
the state. This is a worthy position to maintain, and, with a 
considerable increase in taxable property during the year, it 
does not seem that the recommended amount should necessitate 
any increase in our rate. You will, of course, understand that 
state, county and school taxes account for at least 60% of the 
tax rate. They are outside our jurisdiction, and as this is the 
legislative year, they may be slightly increased. It is therefore 
recommended that your appropriations be so made that they 
do not exceed the total estimates. 

During the past year maturing bonds of $25,500 have 
been paid, leaving the total bonded city debt at only $47,500, of 
which $17,500 is payable this year. Although $160,000 of water 
construction and improvement notes were issued during the 
past year, inasmuch as these will eventually be paid out of the 
earnings of the department, they are not treated by statute as 
a part of the city debt and have no bearing on the borrowing 
limit. They must, however, be considered in our financial 
plans and it has also seemed advisable to pay the note of $3,300 
given in 1922 in payment of the Woodward gravel bank. Our 
unusually Ioav bonded debt is due to the careful, conservative 
policy established and followed by many preceeding adminis- 
tions and seems such a desirable policy to maintain that I trust 
the coming year 's work may be so planned as to provide for all 
necessary progress without the issue of additional notes. 

• Other items in the estimates are principally based on past 
experiences and it has been the endeavor to keep them at a 
minimum without the sacrifice of progress or effciency. 



ANNUAL REPORT 11 

WATER WORKS, SEWERS AND DRAINS 
Perhaps the most important undertaking for a long period 
of years is the water improvements started during the past 
year, in the construction of a larger main in Marlboro Street, 
the construction of filter plants on Beech Hill and at the Stone 
Dam, and a storage reservoir on Beech Hill. It is not possible 
to review here all the causes leading up to this work, as they 
involve a review of ten years examinations and reports of the 
state board of health, the survey and recommendations of the 
National Board of Fire Underwriters in 1918, the survey and 
report of Prof. H. K. Barrows in 1922 and the reports and 
recommendations of the late Prof. G. C. Whipple of the Har- 
vard Engineering School and Mr. R, S. Weston in 1924, all of 
which are on file for your examination, as are also the 
yearly reports and recommendations of Supt. Babbidge over a 
long term of years. 

You are probably aware that the reports agreed that our 
water supply was in constant danger of chance contamination, 
in fact, that reports over the ten year period showed an unduly 
large percentage of mild colon contaminations ; an undesirable 
excess of color and iron content and, especially after rains, a 
considerable sediment. In addition to this and particularly 
stressed by the fire underwriters and Prof. Barrows was a lack 
of pressure and volume in case of emergency, such as a large 
fire would cause. 

The engineers engaged last spring were agreed that slow 
sand filters would afford us the most complete and efficient 
relief from possible pollution, coupled with an improvement in 
color and a reduction in turbidity. It is gratifying that their 
reports were so logical and convincing that the recommenda- 
tions were adopted by both boards without a dissenting vote 



12 CITY OF KEENE 

and that work was commenced at the earliest possible date and 
continued until well into December. It is hoped that the entire 
project may be completed by July, including the installation 
of an altitude valve on the Goose Pond line to stop the present 
waste of water, and the cleaning of the pipe lines to the Echo 
Lake supply. In the belief that nothing can contribute more 
to the health and comfort of a city than an abundant supply of 
the safest, highest grade water, I urge your co-operation in 
the earliest completion of the pending plans. It might be added 
that the engineers estimate that this will provide for an ade- 
quate supply of water into the city for the next twenty-five 
years. 

Your attention is also called to the recommendation of the 
superintendent that the 30 inch drain pipe in Carpenter Street 
be continued to Kingsbury Street, thus doing away with an 
unsanitary and unsightly open drain and making a step 
toward the ultimate development of land in that section. Also 
to the continuation of the policy of the department to eliminate 
dead ends in the water mains as rapidly as possible. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT 
Of almost equal importance with the quality of the water 
supply is its quantity in time of serious fire. Tests made by 
Prof. Barrows in 1922 showed that the normal discharge at 60 
lbs. pressure in Central Square was only about one third the 
desired maximum and that both pressure and volume were 
below safe standards. As the first step in any plan of improve- 
ment, the recommendation was made, as has often been made 
by Supt. Babbidge, that a larger main be laid in Marlboro 
Street to utilize the full supply from the Stone Dam. This was 
completed during the summer and has undoubtedly helped con- 



ANNUAL REPORT 13 

ditioiis. The covered storage reservoir to be built on Beech 
Hill is designed to constantly hold in storage a million and a 
half gallons immediately available in case of fire or breaks in 
the mains and estimated to maintain a pressure of about 80 
pounds and to j^rovide over twice the present discharge, or 
twelve hose streams for a period of ten hours in addition to the 
present supply in the business district. 

It is my understanding that this is the most efficient stand- 
ard that is needed here and in the belief that our fire depart- 
ment has made an unusual record of success in keeping down 
fire losses under adverse conditions and that the entire com- 
munity appreciates the loyal and earnest study which has 
accomplished this, it will be gratifying to us all to provide this 
greatly improved supply. 

In order that this new supply may be efficiently distributed 
Prof. BarroAvs has estimated desirable standards of floAv for 
various sections of the city and his recommendations plan for 
a large program of pipe enlargements and extensions over a 
period of years. As we are proceeding under a higher pressure 
than made in his estimates, it is recommended that, before pro- 
ceeding with any further program, immediately upon the com- 
pletion of the plans in progress, thorough pitometer tests be 
made in different sections of the city. 

HIGHWAYS 
I am sure you will realize that the very rapid all 
the year increase in motor traffic, especially in heavy trucks, 
has not only here, but throughout the entire country, so revolu- 
tionized the type of roads demanded that it has taxed the re- 
sources of the federal and state as well as municipal govern- 
ments to anywhere near keep pace with the demands. 



14 CITY OF KEENE 

You are confronted with the need of choosing a new super- 
intendent for this important position, which carries with it the 
efficient expenditure of over a hundred thousand dollars, or 
40% of our entire appropriations. It is, fortunately, a time of 
the year when you can give ample thought to the consideration 
of candidates and you are urged to give a careful study to all 
the qualifications of ability, education and experience in the 
multitude of duties required, of all who may be candidates, 
before making your choice. 

During the past year, all work, whether cement road, 
bridge or sidewalk, macadam or gravel construction has been 
planned and built by the department at undoubtedly a large 
saving over contract work and it seems desirable from an 
economic standpoint that this policy should be continued. 

Sentiment throughout the country seems to be agreed that 
cement highways are most efficient and economical for carry- 
iirg'heaviest traffic and it seems desirable if we are to keep pace 
that a certain amount of this pavement should be done each 
year on the streets radiating from Central Square and bearing 
the most traffic, as they need repair. I would therefore recom- 
ment that a section of Washington Street commencing at the 
Square be so resurfaced this year. 

During the past year a greater length of cement side walks 
has been constructed than in any previous year. In the belief 
that they are greatly appreciated by all people at all seasons 
and that they add materially to the appearance of the city and 
the value of abutting property I recommend that they be ex- 
tended during the coming year and that an effort be made to 
construct them first upon the principal streets radiating from 
Central Square. The law under which they are constructed 
here is a serious handicap to any definite program of extension 



ANNUAL REPORT 15 

and I would like to see, at the coming session of the legislature, 
an endeavor made to so change the law as to permit their con- 
struction under a betterment act. 

In accordance with general practice a large increase in the 
number of oiled streets has been made and I feel that this meets 
with universal satisfaction and should be continued and ex- 
tended. It has been the custom, over a long period of years, to 
assess a two dollar tax upon abutting land owners on 
streets which were sprinkled or treated with oil. For the small 
amount returned, I know of nothing which has been more dis- 
liked or unequal in its assessment and it is therefore recom- 
mended that the assessment be discontinued and the expense 
treated as a part of highway maintenance. 

The federal aid project on the Monadnock road was com- 
pleted as far as the underpass on the Westmoreland road last 
year and there remains only a short section to complete this to 
the Surry line. It is hoped this may be finished this year. This 
is probably the last federal aid that we can get for many years 
and the councils should investigate comparative costs and re- 
sults to determine whether it is desirable to apply for state aid 
on the Chesterfield and Concord roads, which, as trunk lines 
need construction, or for the city to build them. There are ap- 
parently good arguments on both sides. 

It would seem that there is a large and just demand that 
as many as possible of the city streets should be kept cleared of 
snow and ice for winter traffic. We have a heavy tractor suit- 
able for this work and the purchase of a suitable plow is advo- 
cated. The department's steam roller has been used far beyond 
the customary life of such machines, and, if continued would 
need extensive repairs. It is suggested that this be turned in 
toward the purchase of a new and more modern type. 



16 CITY OF KEENB 

PUBLIC HEALTH 

The report of the board of health shows that for practically 
all the year, communicable diseases have been kept at a very 
low minimum and that all matters under their jurisdiction have 
been carefully watched and promptly corrected. Two matters 
that they have previously recommended for action and in which 
I feel that the general public is also interested still remain un- 
solved, namely, garbage disposal and public comfort stations. 
I again urge your consideration in the hope that some satisfac- 
tory solution may result. 

STREET LIGHTING 

On July 1st of this year the present ten year street lighting 
contract will expire and your early study of this question is 
urged in order that a new contract may be completed by that 
time. In order that we may compare favorably with other 
cities, it is suggested that the business section should have a 
new system of lighting. With this end in view sample lamps of 
different types have been installed and you are asked to take 
note of .these as well as to investigate lighting plans in use in 
other cities. 

CEMETERY DEPARTMENT 

Constant progress has been made, not only in improving 
the appearance of our cemeteries but in all possible extensions 
of lots by clearing and grading but the time is near when it 
will be necessary to acquire more land. I would suggest that if 
any suitable site is noted by any member that it be brought to 
the attention of the superintendent or the councils. 



ANNUAL REPORT 17 

CURTAILMENT OF RAILROAD SERVICE 
Yon are all familiar with the fact that the Boston and 
Maine Railroad has petitioned the Interstate Commerce Com- 
mission for permission to discontinue train service between 
Keene and Greenfield on the Nashua Division. Such an act 
would seriously affect not only the business of the city and 
adjacent towns on the road but would cut us off from direct 
communication with the rest of the state. At the time of the 
construction of this line, the city provided a gratuity of $160,- 
000 and we are surely vitally interested in the protection of our 
interests. The immediate passage is urged of a resolution, 
authorizing the fullest opposition to the granting of the peti- 
tion. 

POLICE 

You will note from the reports of the police commissioners 
that drunkenness and violations of the liquor laws far over- 
shadow all other offenses, although I believe our officers are 
using their best efforts to stop the importation and manufac- 
ture. We can only urge a constant cooperation with state and 
federal authorities unless a much larger appropriation is pro- 
vided. Traffic in the business district is apparently being effi- 
ciently handled but I believe that traffic signals are needed at 
some outside points and would recommend that they be in- 
stalled at Winchester and Marlboro Street intersections with 
Main Street. 

Many other matters of minor importance might be brought 
to your attention at this time, but in the feeling that your pa- 
tience has already been tried, they may be reserved for a later 
time, if the occasion arises. I shall hope to feel free at any time 
to ask your consideration and co-operation on any problems 



18 CITY OF KEENE 

that may arise and in return I want to pledge my interest and 
my welcome upon any subject of the city's best interest which 
you bring forward and I know that I can promise the same feel- 
ing and co-operation on the part of any of the city officials. 

In conclusion, may I thank you for your attention and 
urge, in consideration of the other members, your prompt and 
regular attendance at all meetings of the councils and com- 
mittees.

ITEMS OF INTEREST 



The Keene Water Works were established and have been 
extended from time to time by authority of a charter from 
the legislature of New Hampshire, granted July 3, 1861, and 
amendments thereto dated June 24, 1868. 

The first contract was made with the Patent Water and 
Gas Pipe Co., of New Jersey, September 3, 1868. 

Water was let into the system November, 1869. 

1872. 
Beech Hill reservoir Avas built and connected with the 
system. 

1882. 
The Waring system of sewers was adopted and turned 
over to the city in 1883. 

1886. 
The Roxbury supply was brought into the city via Beech 
Hill. 

1890. 
The first meters were installed. 

1891. 
Ten and one-half miles of cement lined pipe were re- 
placed with cast iron. There remains in service (1916) 7,047 
feet in Court Street, 400 in Roxbury Street, and 186 in West 
Street. 

1902. 
Additional water from Roxbury was brought into the city 
via South Keene. 



276 CITY OF KEENE

The Board of Water Commissioners was abolished by the 
City Councils,

The dam at Echo Lake was rebuilt, raising the water in 
the lake six feet. 

1914. 

The meter system was adopted and all services ordered 
metered. 

1917. 

Guards maintained at Echo Lake for three months. 

1924. 

By vote of the City Councils two filters and a storage 
reservoir were authorized. One filter and reservoir on Beech 
Hill and one filter at the stone dam.

RECOMMENDATIONS 



WATER 

I respectful!}- recommend : 

1. That the city continue the policy of connecting all

2. That the pipe in several streets be cleaned by the same 
method as the 8" pipe from the quarry dam Roxbury, Wash- 
ington and West Streets, Avhich was very successful. 

3. That the four inch pipe in Vernon Street be replaced 
with eight inch. 

4. That the two inch pipe in Foster Street be relaid with 
six inch. 

5. That some provisions be made to supply Arlington 
with water, as recommended by Health Officer Nims. 

Tlie two filters and reservoir have been put in service and 
are working satisfactorily, the pressure increased from 60-65 to 

80-85. 

DRAINS 

I respectfully recommend: 

1. That all cat heads and grates be replaced with catch 
basins. 

2. That the north end ditch be covered. 

3. That the Highway department recommend the streets 
they wish to have drains laid in. 

Respectfully submitted, 

PAUL F. BABBIDGB, 

Superintendent.

CONSULTING ENGINEERS REPORT OF THE 

BEECH HILL RESERVOIR AND 

STONE DAM FILTERS 



December 16, 1925 
Keene Water Works, 

Keene, New Hampshire. 
Gentlemen : 

We respectfully present the following report on the con- 
struction of the Beech Hill reservoir and filter and the Stone 
Dam filter. 

IN GENERAL 

Following our joint report with George C. Whipple dated 
July 8, 1924, on the sanitary protection of your water supply, 
the City Councils voted on July 25, 1924 to filter the Stone 
Dam and Quarry Dam sources of water supply and to build a 
filtered water storage reservoir on Beech Hill. We were auth- 
orized on August 4th to prepare contract plans and specifica- 
tions and to supervise the construction of the proposed im- 
provements. 

PLANS, SPECIFICATIONS AND PROPOSALS 

Plans and specifications were ready on September 5, and 
the following proposals were received and opened on Septem- 
ber 15, 1924. 

Contractor Amount 

S. C. Sperry Co., Inc., , $114,000 00 

J. H. Ferguson Company, 114,339 00 

Simpson Bros. Corp., . 123,091 00 

Concrete Oil Tank Co., 128,929 00 

Thomas C. Davis, 133,336 00

Charles I. Ilosmer, 133,410 00 

lloyt Construction Co., 133,550 00 

Rice-Jones Company, 138,800 00 

Wm. M. Bailey Company, 142,980 00 

John E. Palmer Co., 146,000 00 

E. H. Porter Company, 151,190 00

Pultz, Inc., 174,669 00 

Joseph Long & Co., 181,288 00 

N. E. Foundation Co., 186,748 00 
The above proposals were exclusive of rock excavation. 
The contract was awarded to S. C. Sperry Co., Inc. on Septem- 
ber 16th for the sum of $111,255.00 with rock excavation at 
actual cost plus 15 percent. 

CONSTRUCTION WORK 

The contractor began work on September 25, 1924, and 
continued until December 16, when weather conditions made it 
advisable to suspend operations until the following spring. The 
excavation for the Beech Hill filter was finished and the con- 
crete floors, walls, columns and roofs of the filter completed. 
Excavation for the Beech Hill reservoir was nearly completed. 

Work was resumed on April 16, 1925, with special empha- 
sis placed upon the completion of the reservoir to give the city 
this additional fire protection. This was accomplished on Aug- 
ust 4th and the reservoir was gradually filled and tested with 
unfiltered water from the Beech Hill main. On September 3, 
filtered water from Beech Hill filter No. 1 was delivered to the 
reservoir and on October 2, both of the Beech Hill filter units 
were in operation furnishing filtered water to the city from 
the Quarry Dam source. 

Excavation for the Stone Dam filter was begun on July 6 
and the concrete work was finished on October 2. The two 
Stone Dam filter units were completed and filtered water 
supplied to the city from the Stone Dam source on December 
9th. 



ANNUAL REPORT 323 

WORK BY CITY 

Your water department in the mean time furnished and 
installed the 8-inch inlet main from the Quarry Dam supply 
main to the Beech Hill filter, the 8-inch effluent main from the 
Beech Hill filter to the Beech Hill reservoir, the 16 and 14-inch 
connection between the reservoir and the supply main to the 
city, the 8-inch drain for the Beech Hill filter, the 10-inch 
drain for the reservoir, a 12-inch temporary line from tlie 
Stone Dam supply main to a temporary dam on the brook above 
the reservoir, the 12-inch inlet main from the Stone Dam reser- 
voir to the Stone Dam filter, the 12-inch effluent main from the 
filter to the supply main to the city and the 10-inch drain from 
the filter to the drain as well as to install an altitude valve in 
the Goose Pond supply main and perform other Avork in con- 
nection with the improvements to the water supply system. 

BEECH HILL RESERVOIR 

The Beech Hill reservoir is of reinforced concrete, 112 ft. 
inside diameter by 20 ft. depth of water and has a capacity of 
1,500,000 gallons or sufficient to furnish 10 fire streams for 10 
hours. The reservoir is surrounded with an earthen embank- 
ment and the roof is covered with 18 inches of earth to prevent 
freezing. Its flow line is at elevation 698 thus giving a pressure 
of about 90 pounds at Central Square. The reservoir is provid- 
ed Avith a 16-inch connection to the distribution system, a drain 
emptying into a nearby watercourse and an overflow discharg- 
ing into the drain. The reservoir will be filled by the occa- 
sional excess of the Stone Dam filter over the consumption of 
the city and constantly by the Beech Hill filter, the total capa- 
city of which discharges into the reservoir. An automatic 
float valve located in the effluent main of the Beech Hill filter 
will shut off this filter when the reservoir is filled and the 
excess of the unfiltered water entering the filter will overflow 
into a drain leading to the reservoir drain. 



324 CITY OF KEENE 

BEECH HILL FILTER 

The Beech Hill filter is of the slow sand type and consists 
of two units, each 56'-10" by 57'-0" in area with a normal 
capacity of 375,000 gallons per day each, or a total capacity of 
750,000 gallons per day and was constructed for the purpose of 
filtering the supply from the Quarry Dam previous to its de- 
liver}' to the city. 

The filtering materials consist of 12 inches of screened and 
washed local gravel of four sizes to support the sand, 12 inches 
of screened and washed local sand and 24 inches of a medium 
size, uniform sand dredged from the ocean near Ipswich, Mass. 

The construction is of reinforced concrete with an inverted 
groined arch floor in which the filtered water collecting chan- 
nels are formed and a flat slab roof supported on circular col- 
umns and the filter walls. The filter is surrounded by an 
earthen embankment and the roof is covered by 18 inches of 
earth to prevent freezing. Four 36-inch manholes afford access 
to each unit for convenience in operation. 

A concrete regulator house with slate roof adjoins the 
filter and contains the rate controllers, loss of head gages, rate 
of flow gages equipped with weekly charts, gate valves and 
other control equipment all mounted on suitable stands set on 
the operating floor. 

The filter feeds directly into the Beech Hill reservoir and 
is provided with a drain and overflow discharging into a nat- 
ural water course just south of the reservoir. In an emergency 
the Quarry Dam source may be turned into the city without 
passing through the filter. 

STONE DAM FILTER 

The Stone Dam filter is also of the slow sand type and 
consists of two units each 65'-0'' by 99'-9'' in area with a normal 
capacity of 750,000 gallons per day each, or a total capacity of 
1,500,000 gallons per day. This filter purifies the supply from 
the Stone Dam reservoir previous to its delivery to the city. 



ANNUAL REPORT 325 

The character and depth of the filtering materials are 
quite similar to those at the Beech Hill filter although the depth 
of Ipswich sand is increased to 29 inches. The type of con- 
struction and the devices for regulation are also like those at 
Beech Hill. 

An unique feature of this filter is its location. A careful 
study of the available sites below the reservoir showed the 
ground to be so irregular and difficult of adaptation that it 
was decided to build the filter in the reservoir. It was there- 
fore necessary to drain the reservoir during construction and 
to supply the city by means of a temporary 12-inch main ex- 
tending to a diversion dam on the brook above. 

The filter discharges directly into the 12-inch Stone Dam 
supply main and is provided with a drain and overflow con- 
nected with the reservoir drain. There is an emergency con- 
nection for supplying the city with water directly for the 
reservoir if absolutely necessary. 

In order to visualize the magnitude of the work the fol- 
lovN'ing items that entered into the construction of the reser- 
voirs and filters will be of interest. 

Earth Excavation, 8,560 cubic yards. 
Rock Excavation, 1,050 cubic yards. 
Embankment and Fill, 5,800 cubic yards. 
Concrete, 2,570 cubic yards. 
Steel Reinforcement, 275,000 lbs. 
Steel I Beams, 135,000 lbs. 
Filter Gravel, 510 cubic yards. 
Filter Sand, 2,130 cubic yards. 

The following monthly estimates under the contract were 
approved and submitted to your department for payment up 
to December 1, 1925, the estimates for the lump sum contract 
being 15% less than the value of the work completed. Two 
thirds of the 15% retained will be due upon the completion of 
the contract and the balance 8 months thereafter.

CLEANING BEECH HILL MAIN 

On June 8, 1922, a test was made to determine the flow of 
water through the 8" Beech Hill supply main from Quarry 
Dam. The results are recorded in the annual report of your 
department for 1922 and show that its carrying capacity was 
374 gallons per minute or 538,500 gallons per day which is less 
than 50 percent of the expected flow for a new pipe. It was 
therefore decided to clean this main and after a pressure survey 
indicated that the trouble was quite general over the entire 
main, a contract was entered into with the National Water 
Main Cleaning Company on March 27th, 1925, for cleaning 
about 3 miles of pipe. Work began on April 2 and was com- 
pleted on April 9. The length cleaned was 14,179 feet at a con- 
tract cost of $2,742.22 and the discharge as determined by a 
pitometer test on April 10, was increased to 635 gallons per 
minute or 914,400 gallons per day, equivalent to 81.7% of new 
pipe. It is worthy of note that more than enough lead was 
removed from the interior of the pipe to make all of the joints 
required in the operation of cleaning. 



ANNUAL REPORT 327 

CONTROL VALVE ON GOOSE POND MAIN 

In order to prevent the wastage of filtered water into 
Goose Pond and at the same time to have the advantage of the 
Goose Pond supply in an emergency, a Golden-Anderson double 
acting altitude valve was installed in the 12" supply main at 
the end of the cast iron pipe. This valve is closed against the 
flow of water toward Goose Pond but will automatically open 
when the pressure at Central Square falls below 60 pounds and 
allow Goose Pond to feed into the city. In addition it can also 
be arranged to open towards Goose Pond when the pressure on 
that side is lowered, but for the present this is not advisable 
as the cement pipe would not withstand the additional 25 
pounds pressure from the Beech Hill reservoir. 

After the completion and acceptance of the work we will 
submit a final report. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WESTON & SAMPSON, 

Consulting Engineers.

362 CITY OF KEENE 



REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF 
HIGHWAYS 



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

I beg leave to submit my report for the year 1925. 

The section of "West Street from Park Avenue to the bridge 
over White Brook, one mile in length, was widened, graded, 
and a stone base put in where necessary, a gravel top put on 
with a covering of "Tarvia B" at a cost of $4,790.08. 

The streets of Edgewood never having been surfaced, and 
being impassable in the Spring, were all treated to a good coat 
of gravel, as far as any houses were built, and one application 
of Tarvia was applied. Cost of graveling $872.87. 

The West end of Leverett Street was excavated and 
brought to proper grade with cobble stone base and gravel 
top, also River Street North of Leverett Street about 600 feet in 
length was repaired in the same manner, the surface treated 
with light oil immediately followed by an application of 60% 
asphalt, the cost of Leverett Street being $247.03, and the cost 
of gravel for River Street being $383.51. 

Fowler Street was excavated its entire length and a cob- 
ble stone base with gravel top was laid, after being thoroughly 
rolled an application of Tarvia was used. The cost of cobble 
base and gravel top for this street was $355.17. 

The same method was used on the entire length of Dover 
Street except that a greater depth of cobble stone base, two 
feet in some places, was required on account of the clay sub- 
soil. This street also was given an application of Tarvia. The 
total cost of excavation, cobble base and gravel for this street 
being $912.28. 

The cost of oil and tar treatment on all streets being 
charged to another appropriation. 



ANNUAL REPORT 363 

The road from Swanzey Factory to South Keene \Vas given 
a coat of coarse gravel at a cost of $475.67 also that part of 
Silent Way that is a highway was simliarly treated, as was a 
section of Appleton Street. 

Considerable gravel was put on the Surry East Road at a 
cost of $195.56 and $158.03 was spent for the same purpose on 
the Surry West Road. 

A portion of the gravel for aforesaid streets was taken out 
of the City Pasture from what was formerly the river bed, and 
in so doing quite a channel was opened up to keep the Branch 
Brook in a straight channel, and away from the foot of the 
extensive gravel bank that the city owns in this locality. In 
connection Avith this work, a stone dam was constructed of 
waste material to turn the water into the new channel and stop 
further erosion of this valuable gravel deposit. 

In consequence of the construction of the new reservoir 
and the filter beds, in the East part of the town several of the 
roads were subjected to unusually heavy traffic, and as most 
of these roads were of clayey soil they were badly rutted and 
rendered practically impassible at times, and most culverts 
were broken through thereby obstructing the drainage, it 
therefore became necessary to expend more money in repairs 
on these roads than would otherwise have been necessary, prin- 
cipally on the Jordon Road where $1,493.88 was expended. 
Considerable gravel was put on the Beech Hill Middle Road. 

The Belvedere and Sullivan West Roads being subjected 
to heavy loads of lumber and feldspar Avere in bad condition. 
The owner of a gravel bank nearby donated gravel for these 
roads, so a considerable amount Avas used, the cost to the city 
on the Belvedere Road being $91.38 and on the Sullivan West 
Road $287.68,, $100.00 of this sum however, Avas spent in cut- 
ting brush along the right of Avay of this road. 

The crushed stone material excavated during the grading 
for the concrete permanent improA^ement on Washington St. 
was used in the grading up of Elm Street, across the flat be- 
tAveen BaldAvin and North Streets, this street being so Ioav in 



364 CITY OF KEENE 

some places that it overflowed during high water. From North 
St. to No. 454 Elm, river gravel to a depth of ten inches was 
used, the total expense for work on this street was $2,452.55. 
The graveling of this street should be continued as far as 
Court Street. 

Approximately 10,000 loads of gravel have been put on the 
streets this year in various places. 

OIL AND TAR TREATMENT 

With the ever increasing automobile travel the dust nuis- 
ance increases in proportion, and demand for oil treatment be- 
comes more insistent. This Department has oiled the streets 
where petitions were granted by the City Councils, and some 
outside roads. 

Any increase in the number of streets oiled will call for a 
corresponding increase in appropriation. 

This season 12 tank cars of Standard Asphalt Road Oil, 
3 cars of tarvia, 3 cars Tarvia K. P. and one car of Calcium 
Chloride were purchased for this work. 

SIDEWALKS 

This year 3,857 lineal feet, about % mile, of cement con- 
crete sidewalks have been constructed, this includes portions 
of Court, South Lincoln, Washington, Gurnsey, Norway Ave., 
Bruder and Center Streets, totaling 2,467 sq. yds., at an aver- 
age cost of $2.38 per sq. yd. All sidewalk work has been done 
by employees of this department with very satisfactory results. 
The sum of $1,663.81 is still due the city from abutting land- 
owners including this and last year's work. 

Several petitions for concrete walks were entered late in 
the season, and though the plans made by this department were 
approved and grades established, the weather was too cold to 
do this work well or economically. 

Where cement concrete walks are contemplated, it would 
be advisable to get petitions before the City Councils early in 
the season. 



ANNUAL REPORT 365 

WASHINGTON STREET PERMANENT BIPROVEAIENT 

This concrete construction necessitated the excavating to 
obtain proper depth for the pavement, building of curbings 
and gutters the pouring of roadway slab and grading and seed- 
ing down of grass plots disturbed by construction work. 

This work was done in three operations on account of the 
width of the street, which at the central square end is 58 feet. 

First, the steel reinforced curbings on each side of the 
street were built, then the gutter, a five foot strip of concrete 
just inside the curbings was placed. After these were com- 
pleted came the pouring of the roadway slab, this was done in 
tAvo parts, with a joint lengthwise of the street, and joints 
across the street at necessary intervals to care for the future 
contraction and expansion of the slab. 

This work was done by regular employees of the Highway 
Dept. at a price below that contracted for on similar work in 
this State, and while a 7 inch slab was contemplated on this 
work, an extra inch or two Avas added at all street intersections 
and also on the shoulders at each side of the center of the street, 
points where the pavement must sustain the heaviest traffic. 

The best quality of electrically welded mesh steel rein- 
forcement was used in this pavement and everything possible 
was done to give the people of Keene a highway second to 
none. 

To complete this work it required 967 tons of crushed rock, 
625 tons of sand and 9,000 bags of cement. 

The cost of excavation was $1,800.00. The removal of trees 
$626.19, curbings $1,531.10. 

5,490 sq. yds. of pavement was laid at a cost of $2.61 per 

yd. 

BRIDGES 

The iron bridge at South Keene over the Branch and the 
iron bridge on West Street that crosses the Ashuelot River 
both needed entire new floors at the beginning of this season, 



366 CITY OF KEENE 

but owing to the possible discontinuance of the electric rail- 
road this work has not been done, but it is imperative that a 
new permanent flooring be laid the first of next season. 

CLEAN UP WEEK AND INCINERATOR 

In preparation for clean up week a new dump was started 
near the incinerator so that one man was able to take care of 
this work. 

During the week 193 truck loads of rubbish was collected 
and disposed of at this place, besides the regular collections, at 
a cost of $466.34. The amount of refuse brought to the incin- 
erator increases each year, and during the summer between 40 
and 50 loads were disposed of each day. A new arch had to be 
built this year as the old arch fellin. If the amount of refuse 
increases as it has in the past, an incinerator of greater cap- 
acity will be needed in the near future. 

STATE AID ROADS 

This year the city of Keene appropriated $5,000.00 with 
the understanding that the State of New Hampshire furnish a 
like sum, this joint fund to be used to complete the Westmore- 
land Summit Road from the Railroad Underpass to the Surry 
Town Line. 

The city spent under state supervision the sum of 
$9,521.87. There has been spent by the State for surveying and 
culvert pipe $475.92, making a total expenditure of $9,997.79. 
Therefore it appears that there is due the City of Keene, from 
the State of New Hampshire the sum of $4,522.97. 

Very respectfully, 

ARTHUR A. WALLACE, 

Superintendent of Highways.

REPORT OF PARK COMMISSIONER 



To the Honorable Mayor and City Councils : 

Work on the Parks this year has been practically limited to 
the Wheelock Park and the Dinsmoor and Faulkner & Colony 
Woods where in both places, considerable elimination of worth- 
less crowding trees and brush has been accomplished. 

At Wheelock Park the children of the City have had a 
play ground in increased numbers and families and clubs have 
also used these grounds as in the past. Here also the roofs of 
all the buildings have been painted. 

At the Faulkner & Colony Woods some pine logs, culled 
by the Yale Forestry School, have been sold. The result of 
this special culling being a decided improvement in the re- 
maining stand of pine. 

By the purchase of the County Property on Washington 
Street, Fuller Park, comprising 3.82 acres, has been added to 
the Park System of the City. A small portion at the north end 
has been deeded to the State for the construction of an Armory, 
and the balance has been used as a recreation center and for 
the public band concerts. 

Respectfully, 

H. K. FAULKNER, 

Park Commissioner.

REPORT OF HEALTH OFFICER 



To the Board of Health : 

I herewith submit my report as Health Officer for the City 
of Keene for the year ending December 1, 1925. 

The City has been unusually free from any contagious or 
infectious epidemic during the past year, as there has been a 
much smaller number of cases reported, and no deaths have 
occurred during the year from either diphtheria or scarlet 
fever. 

I have every reason to believe that there have been several 
cases of chicken pox and v/hooping cough that have not been 
reported in cases where a doctor was not called. 

I wish to call the attention of parents to the law requiring 
the reporting to the Board of Health of all known contagious 
or infectious diseases, whether they have a doctor or not.

SANITARY INSPECTIONS 

This important work of the department was given careful 
attention throughout the year, and there is a decided improve- 
ment in the care of waste material by landlords and tenants. 
The back j'ards of tenements and the smaller enclosures in 
rear of blocks in the business section all show evidence of 
greater care, although there are a few who have very little re- 
gard for the sanitary part and looks of their premises, to say 
nothing of the source of danger and annoyance it is to others, 
and is a direct violation of the rules of the board. 

The placarding of houses during periods of infection, care- 
ing for the family if needed, the fumigation of rooms occupied 
by infected patients, the investigation of suspected sources of 
contamination, visits to restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, 
stables, public and private buildings, etc., the construction of 
septic tanks and the improvement of plumbing conditions, al- 
though routine in character, demand no little time and atten- 
tion. 

While our stores, hotels, restaurants, bakeries, barber 
shops, private premises, and streets are not kept letter perfect 
all the time, I am sure as a whole, from a sanitary standpoint 
they will compare most favorably with any City in the State. 

MILK SUPPLY 

The nutritive value of milk depends upon the solids which 
it contains. A standard average solid content is difficult to 
arrive at, as it varies during lactation in individual cows and 
for different breeds of cows. However, all of the food elements 



ANNUAL REPORT 385 

necessary to properl}' maintain life are found in milk — pro- 
teins, fats, carbohydrates, minerals, water and vitamines A, B. 
and C. and as methods of producing and handling milk are 
further perfected and its quality preserved, it is not surprising 
that the demand for it as a food has increased so fast. 

The economic side of dairying cannot prosper to its fullest 
extent without producing quality milk for which there is the 
greatest demand, nor can the sanitary quality of milk be in- 
definitely maintained at a high level without profit accruing to 
the producer and distributor. These facts must be better recog- 
nized by the producer, the control official and the consumer, if 
the industry is to market a safe, profitable product. 

The interests of the producer, the distributor, the control 
official and the consumer do not differ. If one loses confidence 
in the other, all suffer the consequences, and for this reason I 
wish to solicit the co-operation of all these, so that the City 
may be supplied with a safe, and high grade milk, at a reason- 
able price, and a profit to the producer.

I wish at this time to recommend that the City extend the 
water main in Park Ave. to Arlington. There are now about 
twenty families living in this locality, all using water from 
driven wells from ten to twelve feet deep, with the sink drains 
running on the ground, and the dry toilets now in use there, 
it will be only a very short time when the ground will become 
saturated with this fecal matter, which will in my opinion 
contaminate the water and make it very dangerous for drink- 
ing. If this section is furnished with pure water soon, the sep- 
tic tank will take care of the sewerage for some time to come. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FRED C. NIMS. 

Health Officer.

ANNUAL REPORT 387 



REPORT OF TRUSTEES OF KEENE 
PUBLIC LIBRARY 



To the Honorable Mayor and City Councils : 
Gentlemen : 

Tlie Trustees of the Keene Public Library submit the fol- 
lowing report: 

The interest shown by the library patrons and the steady 
increase in the circulation and the use of the Reference room 
are most gratifying to the Trustees and the library staff. The 
Children's Room is extending its influence in a most encourag- 
ing manner. Every afternoon it is a busy center for the young 
people and the story telling hour on Saturday mornings is very 
popular. 

Miss Alice R. Brown, who was engaged to take Miss Rigg 's 
position as Children's Librarian was most successful in her 
work in the department and the Trustees regretted her leaving 
this fall. She was released to accept the position of assistant 
head of the circulating department of the Library at Water- 
bury, Connecticut at a larger salary. During the time of her 
absence last winter on account of illness, Miss Eleanor Dean of 
Keene acted as her substitute. She filled the position so satis- 
factorily that the Trustees were very glad to be able to engage 
her as Children's Librarian when Miss Brown departed on No- 
vember 1. Miss Dean is a graduate of the Keene High School 
and the Library Training Class of Greenfield, Mass. She was 
three years in the Library at Somerville, Mass., and substituted 
at Wellesley, Mass. She and Miss Bessie McGregor acted as 
substitutes during the summer when the regular staff took their 
vacations. 

The Trustees sent Miss Saxton to the joint meeting of the 
Library Association of New England States held at Swamp- 



388 CITY OF KEENE 

scott, Mass., in June. Miss Saxton reported much valuable 
help and information gained therefrom. 

Miss Saxton, by invitation of the Keene Normal School, has 
spoken twice to the Vocational training class on Library work. 
During Book Week she spoke on books at the Symonds' School. 
The week was observed at the library in the usual manner by 
a display of books and posters. 

During the year in order to arouse greater interest in the 
library. Miss Saxton visited many families in West Keene 
explaining its privileges. She arranged for a deposit station 
at the George Street Chapel and instructed one of the members 
who took charge of it how to conduct it. The Trustees were 
very glad to assist in this movement and the experiment proved 
successful. 

The Vacation Keading class was again a feature of great 
interest this summer and at the fall meeting a good number of 
children and members of the Board were present when Miss 
Isabelle Blake of the Keene Normal School faculty entertained 
with stories, and Mrs. La Fell Dickinson presented the certi- 
ficates. 

The Trustees have been very much pleased with the work 
done in all departments by the staff. 

As recommended in the last report the Board has had the 
necessary repairs made. Walls have been retinted and those 
in the stack room redressed where dampness had defaced 
them. Several electric lights have been added where needed. 
Weather strips placed upon thirty windows and the east door, 
eighteen double windows and eighteen transoms ordered for 
use on the stack room this winter. A new typewriter for use 
at the librarian's desk was purchased, also a new filing cabinet 
for the mounted pictures. Several gifts of books have been 
received. A small looking glass that once hung in the old 
fort on Main street being of special historical interest was ac- 
cepted as a loan from Ashuelot Chapter D. A. R. It is suitably 
marked and placed in one of the cases containing the IngersoU 
collection. 



ANNUAL REPORT 389 

It has been noticed that the valuable files of the New 
Hampshire Sentinel were becoming defaced and intentionally 
mutilated. The Trustees are arranging for new stacks wherein 
to place them under lock and key that the use of them can be 
controlled. 

Further items of interest and special statistics will be 
found in the librarian's report hereby appended.

REPORT OF LIBRARIAN 



To the Board of Trustees of the Keene Public Library : 

The report of the librarian, showing the work of the 
library for the year 1924-25, is herewith presented. 

At the beginning of the year, the library had 25,137 vol- 
umes and at the close has 25,550. There has been a good gain 
in the circulation : over 1,600 in the juvenile library alone and 
a total increase of 5,609. 858 new borrowers have registered 
during the year. No definite record has been kept of the num- 
ber using the reading and reference rooms, but it is apparent 
that more are availing themselves of the privileges offered for 
pleasure and education than ever before. The gain in the 
number of Sunday readers is 158. 

Miss Brown's increasing efficiency and interest in the 
work were greatly appreciated and her leaving was regretted. 
It is, however, a pleasure to welcome to the staff, Miss Eleanor 
Dean, a Keene girl, who has had training and experience. 

The one new venture of the year — a deposit station at 
George Street Chapel — planned before the last annual meeting, 
was actually in operation from January to May. While the 
circulation was not large, yet it proved a help during the win- 
ter months to those who could not so easily use the library 
and served to show the advantages of a library to those who 
had not been patrons. A large portion of the children who 
became borrowers there are now regular card holders. The 
George Street Corporation provided a suitable bookcase and 
secured the interest and assistance of Mrs. 0. H. White, Mrs. 
Loyal Barton and Miss Evelyn Barton. Mrs. White and Miss 
Barton became familiar with the charging system at the library 
and were able to carry on the work, after the first day, unaided 



ANNUAL REPORT 391 

by the library workers. The results would seem sufficient to 
warrant undertaking the same again. 

A closer cooperation between the teachers and librarian 
has greatly assisted in the work with the Normal and High 
school students in preparation of debates and other special 
topics. 

The succession of special "weeks" has been utilized to 
display the resources of the library on such subjects as "edu- 
cation," "safety-first," etc. Children's Book Week especially 
has received a great deal of attention, and aside from being a 
time to make the library attractive with posters and exhibits 
of books, it has proved its real value in acquainting parents 
and teachers with good books for the home and school as well 
as those in use in the library. 

An exhibition of poster work by pupils of the Normal and 
public schools last spring attracted much attention. 

The Vacation Reading Club had about the usual number 
enrolled and the young people enjoyed a morning of stories 
told by Miss Isabelle Blake of the Normal School and games 
arranged by Miss Brown, also the presentation of the certifi- 
cates by Mrs. Dickinson for the Trustees. 

The stack room has been in use thirteen years and the 
shelves are becoming crowded. Through the summer, various 
classes were weeded out and old books of value though seldom 
needed placed in the lower stack while still others were dis- 
carded. 

The typewriter and a filing cabinet purchased within the 
year are giving great satisfaction. Repairs in the work room 
and stack recommended last year have been made. Still fur- 
ther cleaning of the walls and replastering over the fireplaces 
and improvements of the grounds are suggested for the coming 
year. Some additions and changes in the furnishings of the 
children's room are already needed, also a book truck. So 
much help is required by the users of the reference room that 



392 CITY OF KEENE 

while the assistants are responding to the increasing calls with 
willingness and ability yet the services of a student helper are 
needed in order to take the best advantage of the opportunities 
for service. 

To the assistants and to the Trustees, the librarian desires 
to express the fullest appreciation of their interest and kind- 
ness. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARY LUCINA SAXTON, 

Librarian.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT 
OF CEMETERIES 



To His Honor the Mayor and Board of Aldermen: 

The undersigned respectfully submits the report of the 
Cemetery Department for the year ending November 30, 1925. 

Since the appointment of your Superintendent on April 
6, 1925, the routine work has progressed in the customary 
manner. 

The department was considerably handicapped and put to 
a heavy expense previous to Memorial Day by the necessity of 
laying new water service pipe. Old and corroded condition 
required the laying of five hundred and sixty feet of one inch 
pipe in Woodland, and one hundred thirty five feet of one and 
one quarter inch in Greenlawn. Constant breaking of pipes 
resulting from freezing last winter, necessitated the laying of 
one hundred fifty feet of one and one quarter inch pipe in 
N. E. Division of Woodland. During the summer one hundred 
seventy-five feet of six inch drainage tile has been laid in 
Woodland, replacing old pipe no longer serviceable. Several 
old stand pipes have also been replaced with new ones. 

The decided improvement in the maintenance of roadways 
and paths this year has received much favorable comment. 
Several hundred loads of gravel from a pit discovered in N. E. 
Division of Woodland, have been used in this repair work, 
thus saving considerably. 

Bridges have been painted, and a large amount of repair 
work has been done on fences when time permitted. Consid- 
erable work is yet to be done in this line. 

A Forevergreen grave set has been purchased to be used 
in place of boughs which required considerable time and ex- 
pense to obtain. 



ANNUAL REPORT 397 

During the summer thirty-five new lots containing one 
hundred ninety-one graves, have been developed. 

Thirty-six burial lots have been sold; seventeen single 
graves ; two, four grave ; five, six grave ; and twelve containing 
eight or more graves. 

There have been one hundred fifty-five burials, two re- 
movals and reburials.

REPORT OF DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC 
PLAYGROUNDS 



PLAYGPtOUND REPORT FOR SUMMER OF 1925 

September 7, 1925. 

This 3'ear, in hopes of reaching a larger number of children, 
it was decided to locate the city playgrounds on the grounds of 
some of the schools rather than at Wheelock Park where they 
had been held in former years. The schools selected as being 
the most convenient for the largest number of children were : 
Tilden, Wheelock, and Roosevelt and each was provided with 
a sand box and jumping standards as well as the equipment 
necessary for games and sports. Besides the school play- 
grounds, the "wade across" on the Ashuelot river was provid- 
ed with a small portable house to be used as a dressing room 
for the girls. Here the need for properly safe-guarded-swim- 
ming was met. Swimming and life saving instructions were 
offered. 

The playgrounds at Tilden and Wheelock schools were 
open in the mornings from 9.30 to 11.30 and Roosevelt school 
and the Wade across were open in the afternoons from 2 to 
4.30. On the last day of each week all the children were taken 
to Wheelock Park where inter-playground games were held. 

Mr. Paul C. Sweet was elected supervisor of the play- 
grounds and Miss Mary Saunders and Miss Phyllis Barrett, who 
had been in charge of the playgrounds for several seasons were 
re-elected. Mr. Waldo Libby and Mr. William Thrasher also 
acted as instructors. Two instructors were placed at each 
ground. At the end of the first week Mr. Thrasher resigned 
and it was decided not to replace him. 

The playgrounds opened on July 8th and were imme- 
diately popular with the children. Swimming proved the most 



ANNUAL REPORT 399 

popular of the activities and tlie "wade across" was crowded 
each warm day. Wheelock school was next to the "wade 
across" in popularity and its attendance was largely smaller 
children. Tilden was next and more popular with the older 
children. Roosevelt was last but its attendance suffered by 
competition with swimming. However a group of children 
patronized it regularly. Wheelock Park was always well 
attended and the inter-playground sports brought out some fine 
talent and intense rivalry. As many Keene people were in the 
habit of taking trips on Saturday afternoon a large number 
of children left at noon so the day was changed from Saturday 
to Friday, to give the children a full day at Wheelock Park 
each week. 

Some time after the opening of the playgrounds a tennis 
court was marked out at Tilden school making the only public 
court for the children of Keene. It was immediately popular 
and in spite of the fact that due to the lack of facilities for the 
game not one child in a dozen had ever played before. There 
being but one court, it was necessary to limit the playing time 
of each child and many could not be accommodated. 

The playgrounds ended on August 28th at Wheelock park 
where a full program of sports and games were held. There 
was a record attendance on the last day, over 200 children being 
present. Prizes were given to winners of the different events 
and refreshments were served at noon. 

Respectfully submitted, 

PAUL C. SWEET, 
Supervisor of Playgrounds. 



400 CITY OF KEENE 

SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVING PLAY GROUNDS 

The fault found with the playgrounds this year was that 
there was no shade on the various schools where the children 
played and a great many parents did not allow their children 
to attend because of this. There was plenty of shade at Wheel- 
ock park but other years have proved that people do not like 
to have their children spend nearly all of each day away from 
home. My suggestion is that in view of the above facts a 
centrally located ground should be equipped by the city, using 
if necessary the equipment now at Wheelock park. These 
grounds should be shady and have enough room for a baseball 
field. They should have at least two tennis courts and four if 
possible. Equipment for basketball both for older and younger 
children should be provided and ample room for other games 
provided. A wading pool for the smaller children and a swim- 
ming pool for the older ones would make this playground ideal, 
especially if it was enclosed by a high wire fence. 

In giving these suggestions I fully realize the great expense 
necessary for it but it might be put before the people of Keene 
and it is my belief they would find it possible in a few years. 
Keene has not now the facilities for play that a town of its 
size and position warrants. Until the time when the above 
playground can be provided I think the program used last sum- 
mer fills the need better than anything used before. 

Respectfully submitted, 

PAUL C. SWEET, 
Supervisor of Playgrounds, 1925. 



ANNUAL REPORT 401 



REPORT OF OVERSEER OF POOR 



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

I hereby submit the annual report for the year ending 
December 1st, 1925. 

The cost of maintaining the poor people of the City has 
been larger this year than it was in 1924, which was due m 
part to the fact that most of the City poor are elderly people 
and are growing more feeble each year which makes them less 
able to provide for themselves. I have also been obliged to 
send an unusual number to the Hospital this year so that they 
might have the proper care. 

The cost of maintaining the County poor living in the 
City, has been the lowest this year, of any of the nine years 
that I have held this office. 

On behalf of the City, I wish at this time to thank all 
Churches, societies and private people who have in any way 
aided the poor people of the City, and I can assure them that 
their thought and generosity has been greatly appreciated. 

I wish also at this time to thank the nurses of the Keene 
visiting or district nursing association for the very efficient 
work, and the many calls they have made to the poor people 
in the City, who otherwise would not have received proper 
care. The work of this association among the poor class of 
people is most highly commendable, and should receive the 
support of everyone in the City. 

During the year I have furnished aid to City and County 
dependents, also dependent soldiers and their families, as fol- 
lows:

REPORT OF CHIEF ENGINEER OF FIRE 
DEPARTMENT AND CITY ELECTRICIAN 



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

I hereby submit my annual report for the year ending 

November 30, 1925. 

The following alarms were answered by the department: 
22 bell alarms ; 168 still alarms ; 6 out-of-town calls, making 

a total of 196 alarms. 

The estimated value of buildings damaged by fite, $457,236 18 

Damage to buildings, 31,693 60 

Insurance on said buildings, 229,273 20 

Insurance paid, 25,205 82 

Value of contents of said buildings, 185,437 41 

Damage to said contents, 42,996 56 

Insurance upon property, 149,350 00 

Insurance paid, 40,142 02 

APPARATUS AND FORCE 

The apparatus and force of the department, under a Chief 
and three Assistant Chiefs, located on Vernon Street, is as 
follows : 

Keene Steam Fire Engine and Hose Co. — John A. Den- 
nison. Captain, and 24 men. 

Washington Hook and Ladder Co. — Frank W. Streeter, 
Captain, and 19 men. 

Deluge Hose Company — Elwin H. Applin, Captain, and 19 
men. 

Ahrens Fox, 750 gallon pumping engine, hose and booster. 

Kissel Combination, chemical and hose. 

Reo Combination, chemical and hose. 



414 CITY OP KEENE 

Mack, ladder truck and chemical. 
Amoskeag Steamer. Tractor drawn. 
Button Steamer. Horse drawn. 
Deluge Combination. Horse drawn. 
Relief Ladder Truck. Horse drawn. 

We have on hand 8,000 feet No. 1 hose, 1,500 feet of linen 
hose at South Keene and 1,300 feet of No. 2 hose. 
Old hose sold during the year, 1,400 feet. 

During the year there has been placed in service the 
following : 

A Fire Alarm Box No. 174 has been installed on lower 
Main Street at Edgewood. 

A traffic siren has been installed at the south end of 
Central Park which is used on all alarms going into the square 
except the hours between 11.00 p. m. and 6.00 a. m. This siren 
is valuable to the department as it gives the warning that the 
apparatus is coming and ample time for all traffic to pull in 
towards the curb and stop as per Ordinance. 

A Tripple Combination, Pump, Hose and Booster System 
has been placed in service. This pumping engine is an Ahrens 
Fox make and piston pump type and 750 gallons capacity. It 
also has a thawing device if in any case that we may connect 
to a hydrant that may be frozen it can be thawed out quickly. 
On May 19 it was given the Underwriters test as to capacity 
and pressure. This test requires two hours pumping at capa- 
city at 120 lbs. and one half hour at one-half capacity at 200 
lbs. and one-half hour at one-third capacity at 250 lbs. The 
Pumper made the test easily and exceeded the capacities re- 
quired. And also with the increase in the water pressure from 
the new reservoir on Beech Hill, giving an increase of about 25 
pounds and its storage capacity of 1,500,000 gallons makes a 
valuable factor in fire protection. 

An Invincible Nozzel of the A. J. Morse type has been 
purchased and will be mounted on Chemical No. 1 by the time 
this report goes to press. This is a nozzle of the 1,100 gallon 



ANNUAL REPORT 415 

size for use on large fires as it has a three-way automatic Siam- 
ese connection for 2^ inch hose. 

Tlie apparatus quarters at the Station have been painted 
during the year. 

The Fire Alarm System is in A No. 1 condition. We now 
have 48 fire alarm boxes on the system which is divided into 
six circuits, two of which are tapper circuits, and about 27 
miles of wire in the alarm circuits. 

During the year as Building Inspector I have given 68 
permits for the erection of new buildings, 13 for additions, 9 
for remodeling. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

The Board of Engineers recommend the purchase of 1,000 
feet of fire hose. The standardizing of the fire hose thread to 
the National standard which is 7J^ threads to the inch. 

To replace the 4 inch water main on Vernon St. with an 
8 inch pipe. Also another permanent man. 

To the Mayor and Members of the Joint Standing Com- 
mittee on Fire Department, the members associated with me 
on the Board of Engineers, Officers and members of the de- 
partment, and to the public, I extend my sincere thanks and 
appreciation for the liberal aid and generous support ren- 
dered me during the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EUGENE B. RILEY, 

Chief Engineer.

ANNUAL REPORT 419 



REPORT OF SEALER OF WEIGHTS 
AND MEASURES 



To the Honorable Board of Mayor and Aldermen of the City 
of Keene : 

All of the weighing and measuring devices in the City of 
Keene, that have come to my notice, have been tested and 
sealed. Very few have been found out of order. 

There are over 50 Gasoline Pumps in the City which re- 
quire a large amount of time to test. 

It would be well for the City to have a 20 ton scale to be 
used for public weighing. 

EDWIN D. HAYWARD, 

Sealer. 
Keene, December 14, 1925.
