INAUGURAL ADDRESS 

OF MAYOR EDMUND TETLEY, MARCH 27, 1900. 



Gentlemen of the City Council: 

It is again my privilege to address you briefly on 
matters pertaining to the welfare and government of the 
city. It is not necessary for me to take any considerable 
time because the reports of the various departments have 
been printed and these reports in detail give all the 
necessary information pertaining to our municipal affairs. 

A careful examination and consideration of these 
reports is recommended with a view to making such 
suggestions for improvement as may occur to you. Each 
year brings to the consideration of the municipal govern- 
ment new questions for determination and added respon- 
sibilities, but we have confidence that they will be met 
and determined with the same care and attention as 
heretofore. 

Our public school system has been kept up to a high 
standard, but the same important question confronts this 
department which did one year ago. I refer to ad- 
ditional school buildings, and from the fact that one of 
the buildings has recently been nearly destroyed by fire 
makes an additional problem to be solved on this 
very vital subject so near to the welfare of the citizens 
of this community. 

I do not think it necessary to call particular attention 
to the other departments except to recommend that in 
the street department, in order to carry out the work 
already commenced, notably in the erection of a stone- 
crushing plant, and all looking toward the improvement 



4 CITY OF LACONIA. 

of our roads and streets, a steam road roller should be 
immediately purchased. I think it good economy, and 
money well expended. 

The financial condition of the city is the question 
which demands the most careful consideration on the part 
of us all. . As I suggested in my last address, "how to 
keep down the public expenditures and the consequent 
burden of taxation, is a question which interests and 
concerns every citizen." 

How to curtail the expenses and at the same time 
to meet the necessary requirements of the city's gov- 
ernment is a problem in the solving of which exceeding 
care must be taken. It is my earnest purpose that 
every expense so far as is consistent with actual neces- 
sities and good government shall be reduced during 
the coming municipal year. The floating indebtedness 
of the city is a matter which I desire to give particular 
attention to, with the view if possible of reducing it 
and of inaugurating a system looking to a steady reduc- 
tion of this indebtedness. 

If this can be satisfactorily brought about I shall feel 
that our labors have been of service to our fellow 
citizens. 

This council will miss from its numbers the faces of 
men who have long been prominent in city affairs, and 
conscientious and painstaking in the discharge of their 
duties, one of whom until this year has been a member 
of the council since the inauguration of the first city 
government. I know I voice the sentiments of you all 
in expressing to these gentlemen sentiments of highest 
regard. 

To those officers of the city government who retire 
today, the thanks of the city are due for conscientious 
and painstaking service. It is my hope that in their new 
fields of labor they will meet with that success to which 
their integrity and ability entitles them. 



INAUGURAL ADDRESS. 5 

In conclusion, I would express the hope that the 
coming year may be one of exceeding prosperity to 
the city and its people. By faithful attention to all of 
our duties may such results be attained as will redound 
to our credit individually and to the people of the city 
whose servants we are. 



MUNICIPAL REGULATIONS,

Department Reports 



SCHOOL DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. 



To the Citizens of Laconia : 

Your Board of Education deems it entirely unneces- 
sary to use any considerable space in this report because 
the reports of the Superintendent of Schools and the 
teacher of our High school will give you full and accurate 
information as to the condition of our schools, and we 
recommend to you the careful reading of these reports. 

One thing we wish to call to your attention; your board 
has succeeded in doing this year what it has done for 
several years past, namely, it has kept within the appro- 
priation given it by the city council and has not run the 
city in debt one dollar. Owing to the large amount of 
supplies that were burned in the Harvard street fire, we 
were called upon to buy a large amount of supplies that 
were not contemplated when we asked for the appropria- 
tion. So that it has been somewhat difficult to keep 
within our appropriation, but we were resolved to do it 
at all hazards, and by the watchful care of our most ex- 
cellent superintendent, J. H. Blaisdell, we have been able 
to do so. 

The past school year has been fortunate in that it has 
not been interrupted by contagious disease. In the 
middle of last winter Harvard street school house was 
burned, but by the courtesy and generosity of Father

with. During the summer and early fall the Harvard 
street building was rebuilt and the pupils in that section 
are now provided with the finest school building in the 
city. We are still hiring three school rooms at an annual 
expense of four hundred and fifty dollars ($450), and 
this brings us to the same proposition that we have an- 
nually presented to you for several years, namely, the 
want of more school houses in Laconia. Undoubtedly 
we may have called attention to this matter so often in 
the annual reports that you may be tired of reading it, 
but we feel that we should not perform our whole duty 
if we did not call the attention of citizens to the great 
and crying need of more school houses in the city. We 
are paying in rent for poor and unsuitable rooms what 
would about pay the interest on $15,000. 

We appeal to the business men of our city and ask 
you if the city is managing its affairs in reference to these 
school houses the way you would manage your own pri- 
vate business? What is needed is a new school building in 
Lakeport and another one in the Laconia end of the city. 
Bnt your school board cannot build school houses; all it 
can do is to call your attention to what is needed, and 
your board has endeavored to perform its full duty in this 
respect for several years, but thus far without results. 
We do not believe our schools were ever in so good con- 
dition as they are now in and we think you will agree 
with us if you will take pains to visit the schools of our 
city. 

There have been few changes in the teaching force in 
our schools during the past year, which has been of great 
advantage, and it is the hope of your board that these 
teachers may continue their work in our midst for a long 
time, for we consider that they cannot be excelled by any 
body of teachers in the state. Theteachers of our schools 
are doing a good work in our community and they need 
your co operation and encouragement; and we would 



SCHOOL DEPARTMENT. 35 

especially ask the parents of scholars to become thor- 
oughly acquainted with teachers of their children, visit the 
schools, invite teachers into your homes, make them to 
feel that you have an interest in them and their work 
and encourage them in every way that you can. Their 
lives are full of difficulties and perplexities that weary 
the body and exhaust' the vital energies, and it is your 
duty and ought to be your pleasure to throw all the 
sunshine into their lives that you can, for they are en- 
gaged in educating and training the minds of those that 
are precious to you above all things else. 

We would call to your especial attention this year our 
High school. It has been the earnest desire of your 
board to have in Laconia a high school that all of our 
citizens would be proud of and be glad to patronize. We 
feel confident in saying that we now have such a high 
school and are sure that it will compare well with any in 
the state, and our young men and women are now being 
fitted for college at home in our own school where they 
can enjoy all the advantages which they can obtain 
abroad. We feel that Mr. Young is doing a good work 
in our midst and he should have the encouragement and 
support of every friend of education in Laconia. 

In conclusion we will say, it is the purpose of your 
board to not only maintain the high standard of our 
schools, but we desire to raise them to a still higher 
degree of excellence. To do this we must have the co- 
operation of every friend of education in the city; this 
we most earnestly ask for. If you know of any way that 
our schools can be improved give us the benefit of your 
knowledge, experience and judgment, for let us remem- 
ber that we are educating and training in our schools 
to-day those who in the future will hold in their power 
the destiny of our beloved city. 

William A. Plummer, 
President of Board of Education. 



REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS. 



To the Board of Education : 

I have the honor of presenting my fourth annual 
report of the schools of this city. 

In every community the education and training of 
children should be of paramount importance. These 
interests are largely given into the hands of the teachers 
and school officers, and, if everything works smoothly 
they attract very little attention from the average citizen. 

I can report a goodly measure of success as far as 
harmony, progress and zeal on the part of the teachers 
go, but we have in a measure been hindered in carrying 
out our plans for the year by the unexpected draft upon 
the school funds by the fire at Harvard street. It had 
been our intention to increase our supply of supplement- 
ary literature and add somewhat to the physical appara- 
tus in the High school as a necessary step in strengthen- 
ing the science department which needs attention in 
building up and supplying it with the proper apparatus 
for modern experiments and requirements. 

The loss from the fire amounted to at least a thousand 
dollars in books, maps, charts, school furniture and 
supplies. We have already expended nearly seven hun- 
dred dollars and still there are many things we need. 
This does not include expense for moving and fitting up 
temporary quarters elsewhere while the old building was 
undergoing repairs. This money has come from our 
regular appropriation and with an eye ever to the fact 
that it should not be exceeded we have labored to curtail 
at every possible point even at the expense of unfulfilled 



SCHOOL DEPARTMENT. 37 

plans and wishes. At the time of the fire we were con- 
fronted by a somewhat difficult problem to house 
properly the pupils thus made homeless. It was neces- 
sary to find rooms not too far from Harvard street or 
else it would incur- hardships to the pupils especially 
during the winter months and more particularly upon 
those of the lower grades. 

Four of the eight grades were located in the High 
school hall and recitation room adjoining. This seemed 
the best we could do under the circumstances; the other 
four grades were placed in rooms secured at the paro- 
chial buildings through kindness of Father Hennon, rent 
free, the expense to the city being for such changes as 
were necessary in moving and fitting with desks which 
were saved from the fire and increasing the sanitary 
conveniences for so large a number of pupils. 

Monday, October 22, the Harvard street building was 
was reoccupied. The changes made in rebuilding were 
all in the nature of improvements; heat, light and venti- 
lation were carefully studied and the house as it now 
stands is a credit to the city and to the gentlemen con- 
cerned in its repair. 

The need of a new school building is no less pressing 
today than it has been for several years. We are still- 
renting three rooms at a cost of #450 and they are among 
the poorest in the city; one of them is as unattractive 
as a barn and no self-respecting citizen of Laconia would 
care to take a visitor to such a place. I am happy to 
say the school work done there bears no resemblance to 
the immediate surroundings. 

It was suggested when the Harvard street house was 
being repaired that its size be increased to accommodate 
all or part of those pupils now attending at Chase's block 
or Court street, but it was seen that the location was too 
far from the true centre to be desirable. We need a 
house not very far from the corner of Baldwin street and 
Union avenue. Many children come down Pine street 



38 CITY OF LACONIA. 

who would thus be saved a long walk as at present; 
besides we shall soon need another primary, room as that 
at Bowman street has been overcrowded for some time 
and that condition is continually growing worse. 

The number of pupils in our schools while not any 
larger than for some years past, is scarcely less. The 
grades are perceptibly less at School and Washington 
streets but larger than usual in some of the other grades. 
Lakeport sends more pupils to the high school from 
year to year, and Weirs has four pupils there at present 
with one in the ninth grade at Lakeport. Since Septem- 
ber the scholars at the Oaks have been transported to 
Lakeport and placed in their proper grades. These 
changes may lead to greater expense in transportation 
but are more than offset by economies in other direc- 
tions, besides being of advantage to the pupds them- 
selves. 

The attendance throughout the year has been fairly 
good though not remarkably so. The winter of 1900 
was very severe and caused a great deal of absence both 
from the severity of the storms and the unusual con- 
dition of the walking. After the fire the grades at 
Harvard street suffered in attendance on account of the 
increased distance the children were obliged to walk, 
and their record is perceptibly lower for that reason. 
The cases of tardiness have certainly reached a low 
figure and it can be said that if our teachers bring their 
standard of excellence in all other lines of school work 
to the same degree of perfection we may rest assured 
that their places are well filled. By glancing at the table 
of statistics it can be seen that some of our teachers 
can yet make progress in this direction while there are 
others who can not reasonably expect a better showing; 
it is to the latter we owe our good average result. 

Since our last annual report about the usual number 
of changes have occurred in our teaching force. Mr. 
Walter Leroy Smith of the commercial department re- 



SCHOOL DEPARTMENT. 39 

signed near the close of the winter term, the vacancy 
remaining unfilled. The work was put in charge of Miss 
Alice M. Davis, a practical stenographer and typewriter 
of this city and Mrs. W. H. Young who more recently 
was elected assistant for the present school year. Dur- 
ing the summer vacation we received the resignation of 
Misses Tucker and Steele. A year's leave of absence 
was granted to Misses Chase, Plummer and Drew. Miss 
Locke of Chelsea, Mass., was secured to take Miss 
Chase's place and the ninth grade at Lakeport was put 
•in charge of Miss Greenough of Newton. Mass. Miss 
Hawkins who has substituted for some little time took 
Miss Drew's grade. Miss Fox who had taught three 
years at the Weirs took charge of the grades formerly 
taught by Miss Plummer at Gilford avenue. One or two 
transfers of teachers were made among those who have 
been with us for some years. There will always come 
more or less changes from year to year from the very 
nature of things. We have also lost two very promising 
teachers through marriage. It has been the aim of the 
committee having the matter of filling such vacancies ire 
charge to take the most promising candidates. Believ- 
ing the success of any school lies largely in the hands 
of the teacher and that she can make it a success or 
otherwise, it becomes certainly incumbent upon super- 
intendent and school board to make no mistake ini 
procuring a new teacher. Those teachers who have 
been in the employ of a city for a term of years are in 
a measure entitled to reelection from year to year unless 
their work falls below a certain standard of excellence. 
It does not necessarilly follow that a teacher, unsuccess- 
ful in one school may not meet with better success in 
another. Often-times a change of surroundings brings 
success. There is no person in a community more to be 
pitied than a teacher struggling with a school of which 
she is not a complete master. Scholarship alone by no 
means insures a teacher's success; she must be endowed 



40 CITY OF LACONIA. 

with an adequate amount of ability known as school 
management, in fact it comes first as a qualification for 
the average teacher; this being so, the best possible 
education on the part of the teacher will not necessarily 
make her a success. She must have certain inate quali- 
ties, — love of children, and firmness, evenness of dispo- 
sition and strength of character. Some teachers are 
recommended because they love children; that is well 
in its place but often leads to over-indulgence and 
disorder in a school room. Give me kindness, absolute 
fairness and a firmness which must be as often practiced 
as anything, with a determination that the child must 
do his best work at all times and usually we have a 
teacher who will make a success of her work. More 
teachers fail from lack of properly governing their 
schools than from any other cause; some fail from igno- 
rance of how to do school work, — for the latter I recom- 
mend a Normal school training. A superintendent has 
no time to show a teacher about the multitude of de- 
tails that come in her work and about those matters that 
might take her months or even years to learn at a 
training school. A man who secures a situation as a 
carpenter knows how to drive nails, plane and saw 
without the assistance of his overseer. So it should be 
with the teacher; she should know how best to present 
arithmetic and geography to her class without minute 
instruction from the superintendent. One of the troubles 
with a teacher without special training is that she teaches 
just as she was taught herself when in school, which may 
or may not be right. She follows models of which she 
knows rather than the best or the accepted methods of 
the present day. In the higher grammar grades besides 
the qualities spoken of above we should have a teacher 
possessed of a very good knowledge of the high school 
work, even to be able to do that part of it which is in 
direct line with her own, as algebra, English and history. 
In these grades we may expect culture, a good under- 



SCHOOL DEPARTMENT. 41 

standing of many subjects which may lead to inspiring 
talks to the pupils upon subjects apart from the study 
at hand, as occasion may sometimes require. I would 
even prefer college-trained teachers here as well as in 
the high school. It may be that the difference in the 
educational training of the grammar school and high 
school teacher may be a considerable factor in rendering 
more difficult the change from grammar school to high 
school work. 

Modern school methods have introduced subjects 
into the school curriculum unknown to the fathers and 
mothers of the children now in school, as music and 
drawing and the like. They are believed to be of educa- 
tional value and tend to develop results of value which 
our people in the immediate future need to possess. 
With this multiplicity of studies we must not lose sight 
of the fact that the health of the child must not suffer 
from too much study. In our struggle for improvement 
along educational lines we must be ever mindful that 
health is of first importance even from the point of view 
of the teacher as all the greater progress can be made 
by the pupil in robust health. 

In conclusion I would call attention to the appended 
reports of Mr. Young of the High school, Miss Nelson 
and Mr. Osgood of drawing and music respectively. I 
think they have labored hard for the best interests of 
their pupils in their several fields. 

To all the teachers I wish to express my appreciation 
of their work, their ready response to suggestions and 
hearty co-operation. 

To the Board of Education much credit is due for 
their labor in the interests of the schools and I must 
express my thanks for their support and help rendered 
me in the discharge of my duties. 

Respectfully submitted, 

J. H. Blaisdell, 
Superintendent of Schools.

REPORT OF PRINCIPAL OF HIGH SCHOOL 



Mr. J. H. Blaisdell, Superintendent of Schools. 

Dear Sir: — I submit herewith my second annual 
report as Principal of the High school. 

The work of the past year has gone forward in accord 
with carefully formulated plans. In English, history, 
modern languages, the classics and mathematics, the 
school now fully meets the requirements of the best New 
England colleges. The college requirement is here 
mentioned only as a generally recognized standard: 
preparation for college is only one feature; the work of 
the school is shaped as well to meet the needs of those 
whose 'scholastic training ends with the High school. 
For this reason I wish to emphasize the imperative 
necessity of good laboratories. I firmly believe that for 
the boy who does not go to college or technical school, 
no one subject — except English — begins to approach in 
importance the study of science. Text book science is 
usually repulsive and unprofitable; good laboratory 
methods, in which each pupil performs the experiments 
for himself, are both highly instructive and very fasci- 
nating. We can improve our work in science by secur- 
ing more apparatus 'and by consecutive courses running 
through the four years. The chemical laboratory is 
well equipped. The physical laboratory should be 
placed in good working order, while we have almost 
nothing for botany. I am very anxious, also, to have a 
good strong course in biology. For the last two sciences 
the cost of fitting up a good working laboratory would 
be comparatively small. 



46 CITY OF LACONIA. 

The percentage of attendance for the past term was 
•9733. a considerable increase over the corresponding 
term of last year. The instances of tardiness during the 
fall term for the last three years, are: 1898, 262; 1899, 
121; 1900, 86; while the decrease is perceptible, the 
number is still too large. 

Although there is no room that can be set apart en- 
tirely for gymnasium purposes, yet there is ample space 
in the hall for parallel bars, horizontal bars and eight or 
ten chest weights. 

Storm doors and windows for the two upper floors, 
at least, would enable the different rooms and halls to 
be kept at a uniform temperature, and at the same time 
would be a source of economy to the city. 

By making music elective with free-hand drawing, 
the grade of work in music has been raised and those 
pupils who cannot sing and who would be a hindrance 
to the progress of the class, are no longer idle but 
profitably employed. The rhetorical work of the school 
is well done by the two debating clubs and the literary 
society. These are officered and managed by the pupils. 
It remains for the school to assume its proper position 
in athletics. 

The total number of recitations per week for this year 
is 125. This number is likely to be increased another 
year. The Senior history class, of nineteen members, 
made a thorough study of Montgomery's Student's 
History of the United States, during the fall term; the 
work for the rest of the year is based upon Adam's 
European History. 

The enrollment for the present year shows eighty- 
two pupils in the three upper classes. The usefulness 
of the school is thus greatly enlarged by holding its 
pupils. Indeed, after a careful comparison of statistics, 
I am fully convinced that the Laconia high school has 
as good a representation in the upper classes as the best 



SCHOOL DEPARTMENT. 47 

Massachusetts schools have. But numbers are only one 
index; in all respects, in my judgment, the work of the 
school is much better than it was a year ago. By arous- 
ing the interests of the pupils, by carefully systematizing 
and harmonizing the different departments, and by the 
hearty co-operation of all the teachers, the school will 
continue to advance in efficiency. 

Walter H. Young, 

Principal.

REPORT OF DRAWING TEACHER. 



Mr. J. H. Blaisdell, Superintendent of Schools: 

Our exhibition last June proved that our schools are 
making advancement in their drawing. We selected for 
that exhibition, drawings that would show especially the 
new lines of work introduced in the last two years: 
figure drawing, drawings in colored crayons, ink work, 
charcoal drawings and designs colored in different har- 
monies. 

Much credit is due the High school pupils for the 
color work, when we consider the fact that they can 
work only forty minutes at one time on these designs, 
Charcoal drawing was introduced last year in January in 
the Sophomore class, and that medium was used the 
remainder of the year, with results as seen at the exhibi- 
tion. This year the sophomores have just begun with 
the charcoal and we have reason to expect better 
results than were obtained last year. 

Besides the new work, we still have in our course 
model drawing in outline, light and shade with the 
pencil and constructive drawing, which includes geomet- 
ric problems, working drawings of objects and the 
development and making of the objects from the work- 
ing drawings. 

Drawing is of practical value. A physician said: 
"There is no better training for a physician than draw- 
ing;" at an exhibition of drawing, a dealer in hardware 
remarked "I have wished many times that I knew how to 
draw." 

Since our last report many of the schools have placed 



54 CITY OF LACONIA. 

new pictures on the walls of their rooms. In some rooms 
a new picture has been added for three and in one case 
for four years. These pictures make the school-rooms 
much more attractive, the pupils are interested in them 
and must gain something from having these reproduc- 
tions from masters in art constantly before them. A 
bust of Washington placed in room ten, is the addition 
made to the decorations in the High school. 

I wish to thank the teachers for their help in June, as 
well as through the year, and the superintendent for his 
kindnesss. Respectfully submitted, 

Lucy N. Nelson. 



REPORT OF MUSIC TEACHER. 



Mr. J. H. Blaisdell, Super intendc?it of Schools: 

There is nothing particularly new to note since my 
last report. 

The work in this department has been carried on 
along the same lines as were mapped out in September, 
1899, on my assuming charge of it. 

We are well equipped with books and charts, the 
old books some of which had been in use for ten years 
having recently been replaced by new ones. The work 
has been more uniform this year, the corresponding 
grades in different parts of the city having covered, in 
some cases, exactly the same work. 

As each new problem in time or tune has presented 
itself, I have tried to develop it by selecting all the 
exercises and songs containing that particular problem 
and presented it in the different keys and under all- 
different conditions possible; for instance, when we first 
come to sharp four, we find it if possible in each one 
of the first nine keys; by so doing pupils have become 
thoroughly familiar with it and are ready for something 
new which, in turn, is treated in the same manner. This 
plan has enabled us to cover more ground in thirty-six 
weeks than could have been covered had we been con- 
stantly finding several new problems all in the same 
lesson. In other words, we have made a specialty of 
that one thing until we have mastered it. 

In the matter of two voice singing the plan of last 
year has been continued, the class being divided as 
evenly as possible and the first division singing first part 



56 CITY OF LACONIA. 

on one exercise and second part on the next and so on. 
By so doing each division gets practically the same 
work. Of course this plan can not be continued after 
the third part (Alto) is introduced. 

The matter of accent has been emphasized and dwelt 
upon to such an extent that I feel sure that our time is 
much better than last year, but we hope to make it still 
better. 

But little supplementary music has been bought this 
year, the most of our work being on exercises and 
songs contained in the "Normal Music Course." but I 
think a few well chosen selections might brighten up 
the work and relieve the monotony. The work in the 
grades as a whole has been very encouraging and with 
a few exceptions, there has been a disposition on the 
part of all to sing. 

One thing very gratifying to me as well as pleasing 
to the public, was the work done by the boys' chorus at 
the graduating exercises last June. All the chorus work' 
was good at that time, but the boys' chorus (unaccom- 
panied), was specially pleasing and they deserved all the 
compliments they received. 

I have been very fortunate in having the assistance 
of so able a staff of regular teachers; they have done 
all in their power to second my efforts and I give them 
credit for faithful work; without their co-operation but 
little could be accomplished and I wish to thank all who 
have helped to make the work pleasant and successful. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Fred H. Osgood.

REPORT OF CITY SOLICITOR. 



To the City Council: 

I have the honor to submit my eighth annual report as 
City Solicitor. During the past year many litigated cases 
have occupied the attention of this department. As 
stated in my last report, what is known as the tax cases, 
being petitions for abatement of taxes instituted by the 
Winnipiseogee Lake Cotton and Woolen Manufacturing 
Company against the city, are still undecided. 

Since my last report another petition of like character 
has been filed so that there are now pending seven peti- 
tions which are awaiting a decision from the court. I am 
unable to give any definite information as to when a 
decision will be rendered. 

Of the other cases pending on the docket of the Su- 
preme Court at the time of my last report, that of Samuel 
W. Prescott against the city, being an appeal from the 
assessment of damages awarded by the County Commis- 
sioners for land of the plaintiff's taken in constructing 
the Weirs Boulevard has been tried by jury and a verdict 
for nine hundred and fifty dollars given in favor of the 
plaintiff. 

In the matter of the petition of A. F. Rogers and 
others for a new highway in Laconia, Gilford and Bel- 
mont over Marsh Hill, in which a hearing was had before 
the County Commissioners in the summer of 1899, and a 
report made by the commissioners in favor of the laying 
out of a new highway, to take the place of the present 
highway over Marsh Hill, the judgment on the report has 
been vacated, and the matter has been disposed of by the 



SOLICITOR S REPORT. 59 

withdrawal of the petition, the City of Laconia paying 
fifty dollars as its share of the expense in the disposal of 
the petition, which seems to me to be a very good ending 
of the proceeding so far as the city is concerned. 

In the suit of Leopold Leduc against the city, men- 
tioned in my last report, which was an action of trespass 
on account of the laying out of Beech street, judgment 
on the report of the referee was rendered at the Novem- 
ber term of the Supreme Court. 

In the matter of the petition of J. B. Mathews and 
others for a new street leading off from South Court 
street also mentioned in my last report, judgment has 
been rendered on the report of the County Commission- 
ers for the laying out of the street. 

At the November term of the Supreme Court, a hear- 
ing was had on the petition of Mr. George Sleeper to 
bring forward the Mathews petition, so as to get a further 
hearing; the court denied the motion. 

At the May term of the Supreme Court, a trial was 
had upon the petition of James W. Fellows for an assess- 
ment of damages claimed on account of the change of 
grade of Gilford Avenue. Judgment was rendered in 
favor of the city, with costs against the petitioner to the 
amount of thirty dollars and forty-four cents. 

Since my last report the following new suits being 
petitions for damages growing out of the closing of a 
portion of Gold street have been entered in court in favor 
of the following parties, viz. Mary A. Lougee, and Katie 
M. Cushing. 

A petition for assessment of damages by George 
Sleeper on account of improvements made in River street 
several years ago, and a similar petition by Ella Eastman 
for an assessment of damages on account of a change of 
the grade of North street have also been entered in court. 

The Eastman case has been tried by jury who award- 
ed Miss Eastman the sum of two hundred and eighty- 



60 CITY OF LACONIA. 

three dollars and thirty-three cents. The Sleeper case 
has been referred to the County Commissioners, and a 
trial will be had during the coming season. 

Of the other suits pending in the Supreme Court at 
the time of my last report, that of Charles H. Sleeper as 
executor of the estate of the late Ellen E. S. Wadleigh, 
being an appeal from the award of damages by the 
County Commissioners occasioned by the construction 
of the Weirs boulevard, has had a jury trial and a less 
sum awarded to the petitioner than that awarded by the 
Commissioners. 

Another suit by the same party in the same represent- 
ative capacity being an action for alleged trespass to land 
owned by the estate of Mrs. E. E. S. Wadleigh, while 
constructing the Weirs boulevard, has been partially tried 
before a jury, but the trial was not completed on account 
of error in the proceedings on the part of the person in 
whose favor the suit was brought. He was allowed leave 
to amend on payment of costs ordered by the court, and 
the case will come up for trial later. 

At the November term of the Supreme Court, a jury 
trial was had on the question of damages claimed by Ed- 
win L. Cram on account of the closing of a portion of 
Gold street. The jury awarded to Mr. Cram the sum of 
eleven hundred and fifty-four dollars and sixteen cents. 
The case has been reserved for the law court for decision 
upon questions of law. 

The suits of William G. Cram, Mary A. Lougee, Katie 
M. Cushing and Rockwell N. Dana all growing out of the 
closing of Gold street, remain as yet untried,, and may 
not be tried until the decision is rendered on questions 
of law raised in the Edwin L. Cram suit. 

At the November term of the Supreme Court a suit 
was entered by Mrs. Mary F. Leavitt, claiming damages 
to the amount of ten thousand dollars for injuries alleged 
to have happened to her while travelling upon Court 



solicitor's report. 6i 

street. This case will probably be in order for trial at 
the spring term of court. 

From the foregoing it is plain to be seen that a large 
amount of business has occupied the attention of this de- 
partment during the year that has closed. Numberless 
questions have arisen requiring attention outside of mat- 
ters litigated, none of which it occurs to me require parti- 
cular attention in this report. 

Upon the important questions involved in the case of 
Edwin L. Cram, now before the law court, I am engaged 
in making a brief. 

I desire to express my thanks to the members of the 
Council, the Mayor and other City Officers for continued 
acts of courtesy extended to me. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Stephen S. Jewett, City Solicitor. 



POLICE DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF POLICE COMMISSIONERS. 



To the City Council: 

Herewith we present to you the sixth annual report 
of the City Marshal to the Board of Police Commission- 
ers for the year ending February 15, 1901. 

Frank E. Busiel. 
F. C. Sanborn. 
C. W. Vaughan. 



REPORT OF CITY MARSHAL 

To t/ie Board of Police Commissioners : 

I respectfully present herewith the annual report of 
the police department, ending February 15, 1901. 

It is fitting that mention be made concerning the death 
of Patrolman Charles E. Small, which occurred June 25, 
1900, and that a short sketch of his career as an officer 
be here inserted. 

Charles E. Small was elected a special police officer 
by the board of mayor and city council, May 28, 1894, 
and on April 12, 1895, was appointed a regular patrolman 
by the board of police commissioners and served the city 
in that capacity until the night of January 11, 1900, while 
on duty, he was stricken with the grim disease which 
later caused his death. For a few days after his first 
attack of sickness, in his characteristic determination to 



POLICE DEPARTMENT. 63 

battle against odds, he attempted to perform his duties 
as an officer, but soon had to give up, and from that time 
until his death he rapidly grew worse. 

The death of Patrolman Small was a great blow to his 
associates and a serious loss to the department. As a 
man, he was ever a true and honorable citizen; as an 
officer, faithful, conscientious and courageous. Those 
who knew him best loved him most, and especially will 
the members of the department love to remember him as 
a true friend. 

I have also to report the untimely death of Special 
Officer Henry L. Wilkinson, which occurred April 29, 
1900. While in the discharge of a duty of his office, 
without warning, he was stricken with an attack of heart 
disease and died within a few moments of the attack. 
He had served the town and city of Laconia as a regular 
and special police officer, and for many years was a very 
efficient truant officer. In his death the department lost 
a valued member and the city an honorable citizen. 

June 24, 1900, the offices and court room occupied by 
the department were destroyed by fire. Most of the im- 
portant records were saved, however, except about 1500 
complaints and warrants on file, which were badly dam- 
aged by smoke and water. The office furniture was 
almost a total loss, together with a minor collection of 
criminal records, police equipments, pictures, etc. The 
officers sustained quite a personal loss by damage to 
their uniforms, in some instances their clothing being 
entirely consumed. 

The department is now very nicely located with the 
various officers of the city government in Masonic 
Temple.

RECOMMENDATIONS. 



I would make the following recommendations: that 
provision be made for the purchase of iooo feet of hose; 
that the steamer hose wagon and supply wagon be re- 
paired and repainted and the other department apparatus 
be varnished; that a hydrant be located on Messer street, 
near the upper railroad crossing; that a new department 
building be erected on Water street; also that provision- 
be made for relining 500 feet of hose. 

I wish to express my sincere thanks to my assistants, 
officers and men, and to the street and police depart- 
ments for their assistance rendered. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert W. Wilcox, Chief Engineer. 



BOARD OF HEALTH. 



To the City Council: 

We herewith submit our report of sanitary work for 
the year ending Dec. 31, 1900. 

Complaints made to and investigated by board of 

health 109 

Houses closed up by order of board of health con- 
taining cases of contagious diseases 54 

Houses fumigated 27 

Permits given for cleaning vaults 4 

Foul sink drains cleaned 19 

Foul water closets cleaned 29 

Sinks without traps, traps placed thereon 12 

Bad wells disused 4 

Animals buried 6 

Nuisances abated 20 

The following cases of contagious diseases were re- 
ported: 

Measles 37 

Diphtheria 8 

Typhoid fever 7 

Scarlet fever 23 

One arrest was caused to be made by the board, for 
violating the rules and regulations; also a family was 
detained at home for violating quarantine rules. 

There has been less typhoid fever during the years 
since the system of sewers was constructed than in one 
year previous to its construction; also a large decrease in 
all zymotic diseases. 



BOARD OF HEALTH. 83 

The use of Valley brook and of Perley canal for sew- 
erage are sources of much annoyance and a cause of 
much complaint, as well as a menace to the public health. 
At the time the water was shut off from the canal for 
the purpose of repairs upon the dam, the board of 
health immediately upon receiving notice requested all 
persons to cease draining sewage into the canal. Except 
in two or three cases, the request was complied with. 
Those who refused to comply did so upon the ground 
of having obtained permission to drain into the canal 
years ago, and claiming a consequent right to continue 
at the present time. In order to avoid further trouble 
from this source we would suggest that the city pass 
an ordinance compelling all persons on the line of the 
sewer to connect with the same within one year. This 
would give [people of limited means time to make 
arrangements preparatory for the needful expense, 
relieve the board of health from the responsibility 
which necessarily causes more or less hard feelings, 
and remove the danger to the public health arising 
from such unsanitary conditions in the midst of the 
most populous portions of the city.

OVERSEERS. OF THE POOR. 



To the City Council: 

The expenses of this department for the year ending 
Feb. 15, 1901, have been less than for the preceding year, 
thus making them the lowest since the beginning of the 
financial depression a few years ago. 

The persons aided the past year have been those 
made destitute by old age or sickness. None have re- 
ceived aid for the reason of being unable to find employ- 
ment. 

A number of heads of families, possessing a dislike 
for work to the extent of allowing their families to suffer 
for the necessaries of life, have been compelled to go 
to work and support those dependent upon them. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Arthur Tucker, 
A. C. S. Randlett.

PUBLIC LIBRARIES. 



REPORT OF TRUSTEES. 



To the City Council: 

The trustees submit the reports of the librarians 
which show the use that has been made together with 
the needs and condition of the libraries. 

With the constant wear of the old books and no new 
ones having been purchased an increased expense has 
been made for re-binding. It is hoped that a small 
additional approbation can be had for the coming year 
in order that the libraries may be kept good and to pro- 
vide some of the new and popular books that are so 
much in demand. The city treasurer's report gives the 
amount expended for the libraries, and the treasurer of 
the trustees shows in the report herewith submitted the 
income from the Helen A. Avery fund that is available 
for the purchase of books of permanent value. A small 
amount is also in the hands of the trustees from the 
unexpended balance of the appropriation for 1900 and 
the fines received by the librarians during the past year,

To the Board of Trustees of the Public Libraries of Laconia: 

Gentlemen. — The year just closed has been a very 
quiet and uneventful one in library work. No new books 
have been added and in consequence of that fact, bor- 
rowers are not as numerous as when the newest books 
are to be found on the shelves. In spite of this con- 
dition, however, the circulation has been kept up to a 
fair average and readers are learning that the stock of 
old books has not been entirely exhausted. 

As our thoughts are directed more or less frequently 
to the new library building, our work seems to be largely 
in the future, rather than in the immediate present and 
while we cannot sit idly down to wait the completion 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. 8/ 

of a new library home, yet we are not able to make or 
enlarge many new plans till we are settled in a place 
favorable to carrying them out. During the period that 
must elapse before our new building is ready for occu- 
pancy, it will be the effort of the librarian to make the 
library of as much service as possible within its present 
limitations. 

We have received gifts of books from several sources 
throughout the year, and are glad to acknowledge them 
at this time: James M. King, one book; Henry McFar- 
land, one book; Finley Acker, one book; Joseph Burnett 
Co., one book; Towle Manufacturing Co., one book; 
Herbert S. Underwood, one book; Publishers of "Punch", 
London, one book; Mrs. Moody Currier, one book; Mrs. 
L. A. Obear, one book; set of ten volumes, John T. 
Busiel; thirty-four government publications in book form 
and numerous pamphlets, and the annual city report.

88 CITY OF LACONIA. 

To the Board of Trustees of the Public Libraries of Laconia. 

Gentlemen: — I have the honor to submit to you my 
ninth annual report as librarian of the Lakeport public 
library, for the year ending January 31, 1901. 

As in previous years, every book was found or 
accounted for at the annual inventory in January. Dur- 
ing the past eight years and a quarter only two books 
have been lost that were not paid for by those to whom 
they had been charged. The value of the two books lost 
was less than one dollar. In each case the borrower left 
town without returning the book. One other book was 
left by the borrower at his boarding house and was after- 
ward offered to the librarian for sale. 

Ten books were donated to the library during the 
year and one duplicate was prepared for circulation. No 
new books were added by purchase. The total number 
of books is now twenty-four hundred and sixteen. Twenty- 
one pamphlets, including bulletins, were received, bring- 
ing the total number up to one hundred and fourteen. 
One hundred and sixty-nine books were rebound, twenty- 
three of these for the second time. Another lot must be 
sent to the bindery very soon. Many of the books are 
too badly worn to be rebound or to be circulated, but 
they have not been wholly withdrawn. 

Sixty-seven new borrowers registered during the year. 
The total number registered is now one thousand and 
thirty-seven. The circulation fell off about ten per cent, 
as compared with the previous year. This was doubtless 
largely due to the fact that no new books were added 
and many of the patrons drew books from the other 
library, or refrained from borrowing books because they 
•could not obtain satisfactory books that they had not 
already read. Fewer books were loaned to the teachers 
for school use because the books were needed at the 
library. The number of books thus loaned decreased 
from one hundred and thirty-one to eighty-seven. Of the 



PUBLIC LIBRARY. »9 

books regularly loaned the percentage of fiction was 
about the same as during the previous year. A larger 
proportion of travel and biography was loaned and a 
smaller percentage of history. Nineteen dollars and 
eighty-eight cents were collected as fines, a gain of one 
dollar and thirty-seven cents over the previous year. 

The regular card catalogue now contains two thousand 
two hundred and sixty-five cards and the card shelf-list 
two hundred and sixty-seven cards. These cards repre- 
sent eight hundred and forty-four books. More than 
half of the books charged out at any one time are among 
those catalogued. It was expected that a supplement to 
the catalogue would be printed during the year, but funds 
were not available for the purpose. A complete printed 
catalogue of the whole library would doubtless largely 
increase the circulation and its general usefulness. 

Two books were obtained from the state library for 
the use of a patron of this library. Books may be drawn 
from the state library, through this library, by any one 
who is willing to pay the actual cost of transportation. 
Last June, arrangements with the General Theological 
Library of Boston were completed, by which books can 
be drawn from that library by the clergymen of this city 
through this library. As in the case of books from the 
state library, the postage or express charges must be paid 
by the borrower.

REPORT OF THE CITY ENGINEER. 



To the City Council: 

I herewith submit the eighth annual report of this 
department for the year ending Feb. 15, 1901. 

The appropriation for this department is so limited 
that much work which should be going on at the present 
time is from necessity postponed. Many of the lines of 
of our older streets are not defined and as time goes on 
the difficulty of retracing them increases. There is in 
existence no reliable map or plan of the streets, storm 
sewers or culverts in our city. This defect makes it diffi- 
cult for the different departments to carry out any sys- 
tematic plan of improvements. 

I would recommend that the appropriation for this 
department be increased from {8500.00 to $750.00 to allow 
a beginning to be made on an accurate and comprehen- 
sive survey of our streets. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Edwin R. Davis, City Engineer.

SEWER DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF SEWERS. 



To the City Council: 

I herewith submit the tenth annual report of this 
department for the year ending Feb. 15, 1901. 

The past year like those preceding it has shown the 
excellence of our sewer system. Very little trouble has 
been experienced in the maintenance of the system, and 
its working has proved that in design and construction 
it is equal to the demands put upon it. 

The number of sewer connections during the past 
year has been large; sixty-three being reported as 
against thirty-six during the previous year. 

Four lateral sewers have been built during the year, 
the construction of which was very successfully carried 
out and the cost of each brought well under the esti- 
mated expense. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Edwin R. Davis, 

Superintendent of Sewers.

STREET DEPARTMENT. 



REPORT OF THE STREET COMMISSIONER. 



To the City Council: 

I herewith submit the annual report of this depart- 
ment for the year ending Feb. 15, 1901. 

The appropriation of Si 5,000.00 has been found suffi- 
cient to carry out such work as has been undertaken 
during the year. All the streets and roads were thor- 
oughly machined and put in good order early in the 
year. An exceptionally dry summer prevented their 
remaining as firm and free from dust as might have been 
desired. Nearly all the smaller culverts and bridges 
have been overhauled and put in good shape, but it was 
impossible with the means at hand to do as much for 
some of the larger bridges. I would call attention to 
the condition of the Elm street and Main street bridges; 
the latter being in especially bad shape and unsafe for 
the traffic passing over it. 

The appropriation of $2,000.00 for the improvement 
of Main street was expended as follows: catch basins, 
connections and sewer, $746.00; paved gutters, $410.00; 
macadamizing, $836.00; leaving a balance of $8.00. The 
road since completion has been free from dust and in 
itself from mud. The location of this new road is not 
favorable for a test in regard to mud as there is at each 
end of it a strip of the worst and most muddy road in 
the city and much mud is carried on to it by teams. I 
do not regard our local rock as satisfactory for the best 



98 CITY OF LACONIA. 

kind of road work and would suggest that if this kind 
of construction is to be continued a rock with higher 
cementing qualities be secured. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Edwin R. Davis, 

Street Commissioner
