A new redlight district is being
tried in Chicago. In the Morals Court
every morning numerous cases are
being brought in from the district
around Thirty-first street between
Michigan avenue and the lake.
The big real estate owners are
profiting from the exodus from the
old Twenty-second street district
and through the influence of some
political 'power in the Second Ward
the street is now alive.
' In the resident section and near
school houses fiats are being opened.

tial district and from the clean houses
came the girls that now form an end
less chain along the street on Satur
day night when business is at its
