The team is more efficient in every

PLAN NEW MUNICIPAL COURT
HOUSE AND STATION
A new municipal courthouse and
central station to carry Chicago's
criminals and prostitutes from the
city hall, where the heart of the city's
business is conducted, is in sight. A
party headed by Aid. Block inspected
a site proposed at Madison street and
the east bank of the river.
