VOL 2, NO. 218 Chicago, Friday, Juno 13, 1913 ONE CENT COMMITTEE OF FIFTEEN GIVES OUT LIST OF1 "RICH AND PROMINENT' RESORT OWNERS r . Sixty-two in List, Including Chicago- Title & Trust Co. and Men Like W. M. Howland, T. JC Lyons, John - (yMalley, W. H. Cowles and J. L. Kesner. BY DON MACGREGOR The Committee of Fifteen, the work of which has been conducted by Samuel P. Thrasher of New England for the last-few weeks, yesterday sent Mayor Harrison, Chief McWeeny and Health Commissioner Young lists of sixty-two disorderly resorts which now are running wide open. The lists not only give the names of the keepers of each and every re sort where sach names are known, but also the names of the owners of each piece of property being used for purposes of prostitution. It is the inclusion of these names of property owners, many of whom are men of wealth and "rich and respectable citizens," and not a few of whom appear to be respectable women, that 'makes the publication of the lists the first real work done by the Committee of Fifteen in years. The Committee accompanied the lists with letters saying that if the city authorities addressed should not see fit to act on the information thus given them, the Committee itself would take steps to prosecute keepers and owners, and put an end to the nuis ance," which the disorderly houses constitute under the ordinances of Chicago. Neither Mayor Harrison, Chief McWeeny nor Health Commissioner Young has had anything to say about the communication so far. They are little likely to tfe action, Jf they had wanted to do so, they would have done so long .ago. So it most likely will be up to the Committee to carry out its threat. And the Committee need not doubt for a moment that the pressure that will be brought to bear on it to pre vent it tloing so will be treinendous. Tiif1J7mtiA'.7SiVrjV--:E" &>tgiJ
