Mandel Brothers' department store on State street is running a "sec
ond basement" salesro'om which is a firetrap, and the customers who buy
there and the clerks and cash boys who work there are taking a risk for
bidden by a valid ordinance of the city of Chicago.
This is what the Hlintois Supreme Court holds in an opinion which came
today to Leon Hornstein, assistant corporation counsel.
Marshall Field & Company, who announced they would build, dig, equip,
start second basement salesrooms when the plans were before city council
committees, must abandon their plans.
It will take about four months for a petition for rehearing and other
proceedings before the Supreme Court. During this time Mandel Brothers
will have a right to run their second basement salesroom. In the rtfean
time, the opinion of city officials is,, .that fire danger and health, menace is
maintained through the operation of such aBupway. , ,
