Notes
Frederick A. Miller, of Chicago, and his plans for an eating establishment on the site of the Gage Homestead met with opposition from a delegation of residents in Ashland and Chestnut avenues. Residents declared the plan an "outrage" even after Miller announced his intention of conducting a "moral and temperance resort." Village officials said Miller had determined upon a change of name for the proposed restaurant, "The North Shore Tea Room" instead of "North Shore Tavern" as it had at first been called. Village attorney Wenban was instructed by the trustees to enter a new demand that Miller get frontge consents and to emphasize the fact that the proposed project was objectionable to residents and out of harmony with the atmosphere of the village.
