Rock Island - Alderman Martin McNealy, while on the way from his home in the Sixth ward to attend the meeting of the city council last evening, incurred the displeasure of a bulldog belonging to Ben Mitchell. The canine attacked the alderman while he was walking along Seventh avenue and before the argument ceased the Sixth ward councilman had received a slight laceration of the right ankle and his trousers were mutilated. Mr. McNealy hurried to the city hall, where there was an examination of the wound at the city laboratory by Health Commissioner A. N. Mueller. There will be no serious result from the bite of the dog.
