Sing, hey! for the gallant alderman, Miles Bulger. He's going to force George Tebeau to set aside one day a week at Association park when women baseball "bugs" shall be admitted free. Alderman Miles is nothing if not gallant. Besides, a good many wives of the Fourth ward voters are followers of the great national pastime and their husbands are growing weary of putting up 50 cents for them to see the home team beaten. Hence, Bulger to the rescue. The alderman will introduce an ordinance in the lower house of the council next Monday night requiring that at least one day a week be set aside for free admission for women at the ball park.
Whether the council has authority to compel Tebeau to grant this boon to the women fans is not known in the Fourth ward. If it hasn't Alderman Bulger may take his measure to the state legislature position. He's going to get the women past the turnstiles one day a week free or know the reason why. Incidentally, he will try to force the ball park license tax up to $250 a year. It is $50 a year now.
