LEVI Z. LEITER IN TOWN.
The Well-Known Millionaire Visits Chicago After a Long Absence.
Levi Z. Leiter arrived in town yesterday morning after a long absence. The millionaire spent most of yesterday at his office at No. 81 Clark street. Mr. Leiter spends very little time in Chicago and his visits are generally associated with his large property interests in the city. He is one of the largest security holders in the Alley “L” Road, and holders of stock in that enterprise connect Mr. Leiter’s coming with the movement to secure a down-town loop for the South Side Elevated Road. Of his plans, however, Mr. Leiter refused to speak yesterday, contenting himself with the statement that he was not opposed to the down-town loop scheme, as had been represented in some quarters. He also said that Drake, Parker & Co., proprietors of the Grand Pacific Hotel, would be offered a renewal of the release, which soon expires. He has no intention. he said, of tearing down the present building. It will be leased just as it now stands.
