When Rosenwald was the object of
an indictment Under the same law,
however, the courts declared the law
invalid.
After the Rosenwald decision
fudges refused to issue warrants
against rich tax cheaters.
So a mandamus proceeding to
force these judges to sign warrants
against those who refuse to pay their
allotment, was takento the appellate
court by Ass't State's Att'y Irwin
Walker.
Jacob Kesner, the man who rose
from office boy to multi-millionaire
"by his investments in loop proper
ty," was named in the suit Hoyne's
office wants to brand him as a tax
dodger. If the case is decided in Hoyne's
favor indictments will be returned
against every man who fails to file a
schedule of his property.
With the indictment comes news
paper notoriety more or less caustic
depending upon the obligations of the
papers to loop advertisers and banks.
The greatest penalty under the law
that can be returned is a fine of $200,
but in event of a fine the man is
branded as a taxdodger.
And many of our best citizens
know full well that they are liable to
be indicted, hauled to court and fined
as law breakers if Hoyne wins bis
case.
Yes, a lot of people are interested
in that decision.
