Tho matter of ro-dlstrlcting the oily f -ll tiito Is being done throtiiih Dal-
into aldermanio wards Is bcirinnlnir to 1iwi wlicro a record Is kept of all time
engage public attention. Tho city
charter, as amended at the last session
of tho legislature, requires that the
city council shall causo tho re-districting
shall be douo nut later
than tlio first of November nextl
only two months hence, and
that the number or wards
not exceed eleven: also that tho
men elecled In April 18S1. two from
each waid shall hold ollice, half for
one year and half for two year as de
termined by tho drawing of lots. Tho
city at present is divided intofour
wards, aud tho real causo for I'loreas-
ing the number to a possible eleven
was the belief that the municipality or
East Dallas, and all tho suburbs or the
city would, during tho pres
ent summer, bo annexed
by popular vote to the parent city.
But a elumeior managed Milhir to at
tain that oud could not have been dc
vised, than the course pursued by
those desiring it. Tliero is no doubt
Dallas would bu trrentlv benefitted bv
the annexations sought; but it is as
certain as that the sun whined that tho
object will never bo accomplished f-o
long as an unfair scheme is at the bot
tom of it. Tlio residents of East Dal
las wonder why could not the city
authoiities of Dallas have proceeded
on a basis of fairness three
months or two months ago and
sub-divided tho preyentclty limits into
say seven wards, leaving four for East
Dallas nnd the largo suburban settle
ment to the north and south of tho
city to bo arranged as tho residents
thereof should seo proper. There
would then have been some Induce
ment for them to liavo cast 11 favorable
vote at tho Into election on the question
or annexation, but as it was, tho bal
lots were overwhelmingly against tho
proposition. The Ga.bttb corre
spondent knows that many votes were
cast in. the negative on account or
dibtrutjOJbf tho motives or tlio
authorities of Dallas on this particular
point. Eaft Dallas and tho suburbs
want to see what sort of popular repre
sentation tbo city of Dallas will have
in her council after redistrlctlng beforo
becoming a part and parcel or tho
parent municipality. Tlio presont ar
rangomentortho wards, it is argued,
is Bitch that only thu business Interests
or tho city can securo full nnd niir rep
resentation. No matter what part of
the city the aldormen como from,
whether from tho residence
portion or tho business centre, tney
are certain, almost as a unit, to have
more interests in the latter than In the
former section. For nearly ton years
there has not been a thno when from
tlireo-fourtbs to seven-eights of tho
representation has not been of tho
character mentioned, and that tlio
public moneys, at tho rato or at least
two ty dollars to one, have not been
expended In such u manner us to
itnprovoand enhance the interests of
a foW squares lu tho heart
m tho buHiifess centre, to tho neglect
of" great icsldenco portions or the cor
noratlou'gonerally. And this ory
policy in wliut has gradually brought
into existence that uncompromising
spirit of clashing rivalry between tho
elements known ns'tho tip-town and
open at tho cllllorent opera houses.
