Variety of Associations. — In order to show
the great variety of the associations at Reading,

they have been presented in the following class-
ification. They are indeed numerous and it is
apparent from the extent of the variety that very
few of the citizens are not connected with any of
them. No attempt has been made to give the
membership; and the compiler can not even pre-
tend to have given the names of all the associa-

representatives, and authorized to elect two mem-
bers. Previously the county, including the county-
seat, was one district and the Assemblymen chosen
from the city are therefore included with the coun-
ty officials. The following persons were repre-

Town. — The local government at Reading from
1748 to 1783 was that commonly incident to a
township for the regulation of road affairs. Un-
til 1760, it was included in Alsace township; then
it was established into a separate district.

Borough. — On Sept. 13, 1783, the town was
incorporated into a borough, and the people were
invested with enlarged powers for local affairs,
which related chiefly to the streets and the public
peace. Provision was made for the annual elec-
tion of two burgesses, four assistants (who with
the chief burgess constituted the council), high
constable, town clerk, two supervisors and two
assessors. The charter continued the same, ex-
cepting several modifications about elections.

City. — The borough was incorporated into a
city on March 16, 1847. The Act preserved the
wards previously created: Northeast, Northwest,
Southeast, Southwest and Spruce, and it provided
for the election of one select and one common
councilman from each ward by the electors, the
former for three years and the latter for one year;
for the annual election of a mayor, treasurer, and
three auditors; for the election of select and com-
moii councilmen from the several wards, the for-
mer for three years and the latter for one year;
and it provided further for the annual appoint-
ment by councils of a solicitor, street regulator,
SLirveyor, two street commissioners, market com-
missioner, high constable, and scavenger, and pres-
idents and clerks of councils. It created two dis-
tricts for aldermen (Penn street being the divid-
ing _ line), with two aldermen for each district,
having similar term of office and powers as jus-
tice of the peace; and the day of election was
fixed for the third Friday of March.

The Act was modified March 13, 1861, and among
other things provided by this second charter the
terms of mayor and treasurer were extended to
two years, and of auditor to three years ; and it was
again modified April 26, 1864, when a third char-
ter was provided, changing the day of election to
the second Friday of February, and increasing the
term of common councilmen to two years, one-half
of the number to be chosen every two years alter-

The general Act of May 23, 1874, accepted by
the people as a fourth charter, made a num-
ber of changes in the local government of Read-
ing. The day of election was changed to the third
Tuesday of February. Each ward became en-
titled to an alderman for five vears, and a consta-
ble and assessor for three years. It substituted
a controller in the place of "the auditors, with a
term of two years; and increased the term of en-
gineer and solicitor to two years. All the com-
mon councilmen were to be elected every two

A general Act was passed May 23, 1889 for
cities of the third class (which included Reading)
and the terms were made as follows : Mayor, treas-
urer, controller, three assessors and engineer, three
years ; solicitor, two years ; select councilmeri, four
years, and common councilmen, two years The
Act of May 16, 1901, increased the term of solici-
tor to three years.



Wards. — The first sub-division of Reading was
made in 1817' for election purposes. The divisions
were two, North ward and South ward, with Penn
street as the dividing line. In 1840, it was sub-
divided into four wards, Northeast, Southeast,
Northwest and Southwest, with Penn street and
Sixth street as the dividing lines. And in 1844,
a fifth ward was established called Spruce, com-
prising that part of Reading which lay between
the Schuylkill and the Philadelphia & Reading rail-
road south of Spruce street.

In 1861, the names of the wards were changed
to numerals : Spruce vvard to First ; Southwest to
Second'; Southeast to Third; Northeast to Fourth;
and Northwest to Fifth. In 1864, the city was di-
vided into nine wards. In 1876, two wards were
added, the Tenth ward having been taken from the
Second (constituting that portion lying east of
Tenth street) and the Eleventh from the Ninth,
constituting that portion lying north of Button-
wood street. In November, 1885, two additional
wards were created out of parts of the Eleventh
ward, the Twelfth constituting the portion between
Greenwich and Windsor streets, and the Thirteenth
constituting the portion north of Windsor. In
November, 1893, two additional wards were created
out of parts of the Sixth and the Seventh wards,
the Fourteenth constituting that portion of the
Seventh north of the Lebanon Valley railroad, and
also that portion of the Sixth north of the Lebanon
Valley railroad and east of Second street and
Centre avenue; and the Fifteenth constituting the
remaining portion of the Sixth, north of the Leb-
anon Valley railroad. And in November, 1894, the
Sixteenth was created out of that portion of the
Eighth which lay east of Eleventh street, and that
portion of the Tenth east of Thirteenth street.

The Act of March 23, 1889, provided for repre-
sentation from the wards in councils as follows:
In select, one member for four years; in common,
two members for two years until the city came to
comprise fifteen wards, when the representation in
common should become one member.

Elective Officials. — The following officials are
elected by the electors of the entire city every three
years at the municipal election on the third Tues-
day in February : Mayor, controller, treasurer, and
three assessors; and the following by the electors
of the sixteen respective wards : select councilmen
for four years and common councilmen for two

Appointive Officials. — The following are ap-
pointed :

By the mayor: Chief of police, four sergeants,
sixty-five patrolmen, two operators of the police
telegraph, two turnkeys, two patrol drivers, elec-
trician, police clerk, commissioner of markets and
city property, and scavenger, all subject to approval
of councils.

, By council: City clerk (four years) ; four water
commissioners ,(four years) ; city engineer (three
years) ; city solicitor (three years) ; five members

board of health, who select two physicians (indefin-
ite period) ; four common commissioners (four
years) ; four commissioners of public works (four
years) ; superintendents, clerks, assistants, etc., for
the several departments. Matron appointed since
March, 1898.

Officials for Wards. — Officials are elected at the
municipal election in February by the voters of
each ward: Alderman (term five years) ; constable
(three years) ; and assessor (three years) ; besides
the representatives in the select and common coun-
cils, and in the school board.

Officials for Precincts. — All the wards of Read-
ing, excepting the Fourth, are divided into precincts,
numbering altogether fifty. Each of these pre-
cincts is an election district, and annually, on the
third Tuesday in February, the voters elect a
judge, two inspectors and a registry assessor. The
Fourth ward constitutes an election district by
itself; as to this district, there is no registry as-
sessor, the ward assessor performing the duties of
that office also.


The Act of Sept. 13, 1783, provided for the an-
nual election in May of two burgesses and four as-
sistants, the first appointees until May 1, 1784, hav-
ing been: burgesses, Daniel Levan and William
Scull ; assistants, Peter Nagle, John Spohn, Benja-
min Spyker, Jr., and James Mjay.

1847 was not obtainable. After dihgent search the
names of the following persons who officiated were
