ALBANY. Feb. 6. Westchester County lias come to the front very rapidly In the demand for the blc Rcst sort of Improvements, which In clude a proposition to make of tho lower part of the county a munici pality similar to that of Greater New Tork and a chain of parks which will add to tho beauty and valuo of the reat estatea of tho wealthy residents of tho county. Tho now city Is wanted, It Is said, as a protection against possible en croachments by Greater New York. At any rate, this Is the reason given in Justification for the move by fol lowers of William I Ward, Republi can boss of Westchester and one of tho strongest of the G. O. P. leaders In the State. A year ago a constitutional amend, mint permitting Nassau and West chester Counties to consolidate their Governments was adopted by the oiers. Dut this is, apparently, not dtcmed u strong enough barrier against tho expansion of tho Greater CJIy. A bill to Create u commission of thirty-two citizens to plan county government for Westchester iti expected to be introduced at to n'ght's session, the passage of which will set in motion the plan of the ttc Putlicans and which will be made cfttctive at tho extraordinary scwlon to be called late in the summer or In the early fall. Tcntatlvu plans call for seven bor oughs in the county with a city or more than 300,000 Inhabitants. Boss Ward Is the ope leader In the State closest to Gov. Miller and his bills seem certain to be favorably received at the capital. A bill authorizing Westchester County to spend $10,003,000 for tho park project. It Is said, will soon be Introduced in the Legislature. As .scmblyman Mastlck of Pleasantvllle already has Introduced one authoriz ing the State to turn over to thn county tho Mohanslc Lake reserva tion In Yorktown, which would be mado part of the park project. It Is understood that some of ttus wealthy residents of Westchester are willing to put up the $10,000,000 for the park.
