XEW WARDS. 175



^TEW WARDS.



New wards were established for the city in the year eighteen hundred
and ninety-five, the first division into new wards since the year 1875. ' An
attempt was made by the City Council to make a new division of wards
in the year 1885, and an ordinance to that effect was prepared by a
special committee appointed for the purpose and passed by the City
Council and approved by the Mayor. 2 Certain questions were raised,
however, in the General Court of 1886, relative to establishing State,
senatorial and representative districts, and as to whether such districts
should be established according to the territorial boundaries of cities
and towns and their wards as they existed on the first day of May, 1885,
or whether new ward lines, as in the case of the City of Boston, should
be followed. On May 21, 1886, the opinion of the Justices of the
Supreme Judicial Court was asked by the Legislature on this matter,
and they decided that the district divisions referred to must be made
according to territorial and other boundaries existing on the first day of
May, 1885, and that the new ward divisions were illegal. 3 On account
of this decision of the justices of the Supreme Judicial Court, an act
was passed by the Legislature in June, 1886, 4 which provided that the
several wards, .precincts, and assessment districts of the several cities
of the Commonwealth, existing May 1, 1885, should be established as
the wards, precincts, and assessment districts of said cities, any acts or
ordinances of the city councils of said cities to the contrary notwithstand-
ing. The new division of wards was thus set aside and the ward lines
established in 1875 remained in effect until they were changed in 1895,
and established under the provisions of Chap. 417, of the Acts of 1893,
as follows :

WARD ONE.

Beginning at the intersection of the Harbor Commissioners 1 line and
the division line dividing the property of the Alonzo Crosby heirs

1 An ordinance providing for a new division of the city into wards, passed Nov. 16,
1875. An ordinance to make Breed's Island, so-called, part of Ward 1, passed Dec. 4, 1875.
By Chap. 242 of the Acts of 1876, the City Council were directed to divide Ward Twenty-
two into two wards to be called Wards 22 and 25. The division was accordingly made by
an ordinance passed May 27, 1876.

2 An ordinance making a new division of the city into wards, passed Dec. 23, 1885. [Doc.
174 of 1885.]
