SWELLS STILL FIGHT FOR THE
CLOSING OF STREET
Aid. Long yesterday charged that
influence was being brought to bear
on aldermen by prominent Lake
Shore drive residents in the attempt
to close Stone street between Banks
and Goethe streets.
If this street is closed it will great
ly increase the property value of the
Potter Palmer estate.
Miss Louise Korth, who lives on
Stone street near Banks, stands in
the way, and has asserted that before
she will surrender to, the Palmers she
will rent her property to negrdes.
She has been offered $10,000 to
consent to the closing of the, street.
Aid. Long caused "a flurry at the
meeting of the council compensation
committee meeting when he said:
"In the last two or three days I '
have been called up by prominent
business associates urging me to take
certain action on the Palmer ordi
nance. That kind of thing won't go
with me, and I resent it. The persons
referred to "would not have called me
if they bad not been asked to do so."
It is rumored that a North Side
Progressive leader has been using his
influence to have the street closed.
