PROBE REPORT THAT KESNER
OWNS DIVE PROPERTY
Assistant Corporation Counsel Geo.
F. Reker and Chief Gleason are today
investigating a report that Jacob L.
Kesnei1, millionaire and former high
official of The Fair, is the owner of
a building at 702 S. State street, in
which a disorderly flat wag located
The flat was run by a woman nam
ed Helen Montague. She was fined
$25 and costs by Judge Goodnow In
the Morals Court this morning. When
arraigned in court she was asked by
Reker if she knew the name of the
owner of the building. She said Kes
ner was the man.
Reker immediately took steps to '
.ascertain the truth of, the woman's
Gleason, it is announced, will also
investigate and if he finds that Kes- ,
ner is the man he will serve notice
to either eyjct his undesirable ten
ants or face prosecution.
This is not the first time Kesner
has .been mentioned as having profit
ed from undesirable tenants. When
the late John E. W. Wayman closed
up the old Twenty-second levee dis
trict Kesner's name appeared as the
owner of several houses in which
dives were located.
At that time there was much talk
about prosecuting the property own
era, but nothing ever came of it
Now Reker has comeforward with
a new campaign to get after the',
"higher-ups.' And, if the evidence is
secured he will begin prosecution.
