    Criticises the omission of cigar smoke from the list of culprits identified in the 'Official Report on the Smoke Nuisance', a reference to the report commissioned from John Simon by the City of London Commissioners of Sewers. Insists that cigar smoke is responsible for many social evils including the soiling of the linen of pedestrians and the irritation of the eyes. Suggests 'walking chimneys' should 'consume their own smoke'.
