LAKE SHORE SILK SOCKS GET PANICKY AS
JUDGE SCULLY STARTS BOUNDARY QUIZ
Several hundred millionaires of
Chicago whq have filled in and hog
ged land on the shore of Lake Mich
igan are very much up in the air to
day following the announcement of
County Judge Scully that he was
going to ask for an investigation to
determine whether or not the filled
in land is inside the Cook county
border line fixed by the Illinois con
stitution. Possibility of a long clash between
Scully and high-priced corporation
lawyers is seen as a result of the
county judge's action.
"I asked for a plat of the entire
eastern boundary line of Cook coun
ty," said Judge Scully. "So far I
have received only a plat of the North
Side. But even in that plat I have
found many grounds for argument,
"The plat shows the original east
ern boundary to be about St Clair st
Of course, the county is entitled to
its riparian rights, but I don't see
where, it has the power to give any
body the right to deliberately fill in
the lake. If we can fill in out to 100
yards from the original shore line,
why can't we grab pff most of the
lake and fill it in for the benefit of
private property owners?"
The filled-in land takes most of
"Streeterville' which old Cap Slreet
er insists is not in Cook county.
"Of course," said Judge Scully,"
it's not my duty to become involved
in any property dispute. The ques
tion of boundary line has been pre
sented to congress by A. J. Sabath,
but no action has been taken on it.
But as head of the eelction machin
ery of Cook county I am going to find
out whether or not the people resid
ing on this filled-in land have the
right to vote in Cook county."
