BRISTOW CLOSES THEATER
SAYS BLOOM'S TO BLAME
Att'y Samuel Bristow closed his
theater at 439 E. 31st st last night.
Before each performance he walked
upon the stage and told his audience
why he was closing.
"I have positive proof that 'Ike'
Bloom of levee fame is going to open
a saloon downstairs," he said. "Re
cently 'Izzie' and Jacob Lazarus have
been telling my neighbors that they
were going to manage the saloon. I
understand that application for a
license will be made today at the city
Bristow also stated that he had
been offered $1,200 to still his objec
tions and that the landlord, an Oak
Park deacon, had insinuated that his
rent would be made easier if he kept
his mouth shut
"I don't think the decent people of
this neighborhood will stand for
Bloom. I know I won't," continued
the attorney. Furthermore, I will not
bring women and children into my
playhouse when I have learned that
a rowdy saloon is to be opened down
stairs." Last night Bloom's friends denied
he intended to open a saloon on 31st
st. They said he had decided to open ,
a roadhouse in Burnham, a suburb
on the far South Side.
