.Chlcngo Is going to have now wards.
They tiro needed, as Tho Englo
pointed out. Tho Republican and
Democratic County Committees liavo
reached an agreement to put through
a flfty-ward bill, with ono Alderman
from each ward, at tho next session of
tho Illinois Legislature
Tho river wards, apparently, with
suMcIcnt aldermen among thomsolves
to stop any favorablo action upon tho
proposod redisricting under tho pres
ent council organization, have forced
tho political arrangement perfected.
Progress has been mado whereby an
agreed map covering tho realignment
of ward boundaries, to talto caro of tho
additional fifteen wards that would bo
created, has bcon prepared and has !
to bo nblo to perform tho first necos
sary stop, which Is passago of tho bill
at Springfield next winter.
This map, It is known, will bo used
as tho basis for congressional reappor
tionment and probably for u senatorial
reapportionment, which linvo been
hanging flro nt tho stato capital over
since tho census of 1910. Tho tontntlvo
agreement, congrcsslonaliy and sena
torially, is that tho new districts In
Chicago shall follow tno ward lines
created by tho agreed map, provided
tho flfty-ward schemo roaches frui
tion. . ;
Tho salary to bo paid tho Council'
members under tho slnglo alderman
system will bo a factor, undoubtedly,
In further dovolopmont of tho Joint
Rcpubllcan-Domocrntic plan. That It
may bo fixed at olthor $4,500 or $5,000
In tho bill to bo Introduced, Is consid
Under tho agreed map tho fifty
wards nro erected on the basis of
population, as ascertained by tho
school consus of 1917, and accuratoly
figured, block by block. No ono of tho
wards, as tho realignment proposes,
has fowor than 48,000 inhabitants nor
mora than 52,000.
By sections ot tho city tho addi
tional fifteen wards aro tliua appor
tioned: North Sldo, 3; Northwest
Sldo, G; West Sldo, 2; South Sldo, 2;
Southwest Sldo, 3.
On tho North Sldo tho Twonty-flfth
Ward Is divided at Oranvlllo avonuo,
tho now ward running thonco north to
tho city limits. Tho Twenty-sixth
would have Its south lino at Irving
Park boulevard. Tho south halves of
tl.o Twonty-flrst and tho Twonty-scc-om
would bo mado Into a now ward,
and tho present Twenty-first would Ho
north ot Chicago avenuo and cast of
Stato sJrcot. A now ward would bo
mado of parts of tho Twenty-third,
Twenty-fifth, and Twenty-sixth.
On -tho South Sldo, tho Fifth would
lose Its southwest portion to a now
ward that would bo mado out of tho
north part of tho Twonty-nlnth. Tho
Sixth would split and a now ward
would bo erected around Washington
Park. A now ward would bo built
from tho south half of tho present
Sovcnth and tho north part of tho
Eighth, with Sovonty-flrst street as a
Tho present Twonty-sovonth on tho
Northwest Sldo would bo savored at
Irving Park boulevard, with a now
ward bounded roughly by Irving Park,
Belmont, Central avenuo, and tho
river. Another ward would bo mado
from tho Fifteenth and Twonty-sov
cnth Wards, botwoen Western, Socley,
Fuilorton, and Chicago avenues. Still
another now ono would bo created be
tweon North nvonuo and Madison
street, Ashland avenue and Sooloy
Redisricting on tho Wost Sldo con
templates two now wards In territory
now In tho Twelfth and Thirty-fourth
Wards. In tho Town of Lako tho
north lino of tho Twonty-nlnth Is sont
south to Fifty-fifth strcot. A now ward
Is outlined between Slxty.thlrd and
Sovonty-flfth streets, from South Park
avonuo to Wostorn nvonuo. Another
Is figured between Forty-third nnd
Fifty-ninth, nnd botwoen Wentworth
nvonuo nnd Stnto street.
It Is understood that tho bulk of tho
county committeemen in each party
nnd a mojorlty ot tho aldermon havo
approved tho now map, and that pros
pective members of tho next legisla
ture havo w?rced to go along with It,
as long as It has boon mado an organ
ization proposition with both parties.
