Cigars the Alderman Distributed
Caused a Vote of Censure

Alderman Miles Bulger drew a vote of censure in the lower house of the council last night. The resolution was offered by Alderman Shinnick. The offense of Bulger, and which brought down the wrath of the majority of his colleagues, was that he liberally passed about loaded cigars and there was some startling exhibitions of high class gymnasics when the cigars exploded. The sport was enjoyed by all those who had not been inveigled into smoking one of Bulger's Mont Pelee brand, but those that did go against them were ruffled in temper and demanded revenge.
