Hot Dog Stand May Bring Legal War in Wilmette
Chicago Tribune, 19 Oct 1922, p. 12

Full Text

His hot dog stand in "no man's land," county property lying between Kenilworth and Wilmette, characterized as a "roadhouse," and a permit for a water connection refused, M. L. Sparr threatens to tap the water main unauthorized. Planning construction of an improved stand, Sparr asked C. C. Schultz, village manager, to represent him in his request for a permit. When Schultz told the village council the permit was for a "roadhouse," they indignantly refused it. They threaten to cut off the main if Sparr taps it. The Standard Oil company, maintaining a filling station nearby, has instructed its attorney to fight to a finish if the water is discontinued.
