J. Ll KESNER, FORMER FAIR MANAGER AND
MILLION AIRE,;OWNERQF EIGHT RESORTS
State's Attorney John E. W,
Wayman's vice crusade is today
blowing up.
Last" Saturday the crusade first
touched the wealthy ' aHd "re
spectable" owners of property in
the redlight district.
That day Harrison" B. 'Riley,
president of the Chicago Title &
Trust Co., and Justin M. Dall,
secretary of the company, were
arrested charged with renting aN
j;esorLat 1905 Armour avenue for
immoral purposes.
The next day, the big news
papers came out with, insidious
stories, all, designed to put an end
to the crusade.
Sunday and Monday Wayman
continued to talk big, and itrlook
e"d as if he were going to be man
enough to go through with the
great work he had started the
exposing of the BIGf men behind
vice. ,
But las,t night a change came,
and now it looks" as if Wayman
had been trying ajgrand bluff or
somethmg more sinister. v "
Wayman gave, out ,two .state
ments last njghtboh of Jtffoicjfci1,
call for explanation. Then he left
the city.
The first statement gives the
Chicago Title & Trust Co. a clean
bill of health and-says the cases
against Riley and Dall will be
nolle prossed.,
The statement explains that
the Chicago Title ,& Trust Co.
did not rent the place at 1905 Ar
mour and that the mistake had
been caused by maps of tbe city
not being correctly plotted.
Thisds tine. The Chicago Title
& Trust Co. did not rent the place,
at 1905 Armour avenue, but un
less the county records are all
wrong, the Chicago Title & Trust
Company rented and is , renting
lots of other property for immoral
purposes.
And Wayman last night said
that the Chicago Title '& Trust
Cov did not rent ANY property
in the tenderloin.
The place at 1905 Armour-avenue
is owned, according to Way
man, by Jacob L. Kesnef mil
lionaire real estate man and,form
er 'general superintendent of the
Fair department store
