Storyline

The commissioner of police discovers that someone has been helping himself to his cigars and, to catch the culprit, he places some loaded cigars in the box in lieu of the good ones. The maid, following her usual custom, gives a handful of the "smokes" to her sweetheart, the Copper. The Copper meets the Lieutenant, who takes the cigars from him, but as neither of them has had a chance to try them, the nature of the "near Havanas" is still a secret. On the Lieutenant's arrival at the Police Station a meeting of the Police Board is in session. The Commissioner gives the Lieutenant a dollar and asks him to go out and get a dollar's worth of good cigars, and, but why tell more? Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
