Alderman Bulger Succeeds in Getting
Their Salaries Raised.

There was joy, contentment and satisfaction in the house of Bulger yesterday. The alderman, after no end of hustling, discovered that his labors in behalf of a raise of salaries for the 220 privates and 22 captains in the fire department had met with the approval of the salary revision committee. The reasoin, it was learned, for the ordinance not getting to the council last Monday night was that Comptroller Pearson was too busy with othe matters. Next Monday, the ordinance will reach the council and thereafter firemen who have been receiving $75 a month will get $80, and captains will hereafter receive $100 a month instead of $90.
