CIiIciiro Is going to have now wards.
They nro needed, as The Kaglo
pointed out. The Henuullcan and
Democratic County Conuhlttees havo
reached an ngrecment to put through
n llfty-wnrd bill, with ono Alderman
from each ward, at the next session of
the Illinois Legislature.
The river wards, apparently, with
suiltclcnt aldermen nmong themselves
to stop nny favorable action upon tho
proposed redisricting under tho pres
ent council organization, havo forced
the political arrangement perfected.
Progress has boon mado whereby nn
agreed map covering tho realignment
of ward boundaries, to talo caro of tho
additional fifteen wards that would bo
cioatcd, has been prepared and has
been O. K.'il y tho powers that ought
to bo nblo to perform tho first neccs
saiy step, wh.th Is paBsago of tho bill
at Springfield next winter.
This mop, It la known, will bo used
as tho basis for congressional reappor
tionment and probably for a senatorial
reapportionment, which lmvo been
hanging fire nt tho stato capital over
slnco tho census of 1910. Tho tentative
agicomcnt, congrcsslonally and sena
torlally, is that tho now districts In
Chicago shall follow tho ward lines
created by tho agreed map, provided
tho fifty-ward scheme roaches frui
tion. Tho salary to bo pnld tho Council
members tinder tho slnglo alderman
system will bo n factor, undoubtedly,
In further development of tho Joint
Rcpubllcan-Domocratlo plan. That It
may bo fixed at eltlior $4,500 or $5,000
In tho bill to bo introduced, is consid
ered probable.
Under tho agreed map tho fifty
words aro erected on the basis of
population, as ascertained by the
school census of 1917, and accurately
figured, block by block. No ono of tho
words, as tho realignment proposes,
has fewer than 48,000 Inhabitants nor
moro than 52,000.
Dy sections ot tho city tho addi
tional fifteen wards nro thus appor
tioned: North Side, 3; Northwest
Side, 5; West SIdo, 2; South Sldo, 2;
Southwest Sldo, 3,
On tho North Sldo tho Twonty-flfth
Ward is divided nt Qranvlilo avenue,
the now ward running thenco north to
tho city limits. Tho Twenty-sixth
would have' its south line nt Irving
Pjrk boulevnrd. Tho south halves ot
the Twenty-first and the Twonty-scc-ond
would bo mado Into a now wnrd,
and tho present Twenty-first would He
north of Chicago avenue and cost of
Stato street. A now wnrd would bo
mado of parts ot tho Twenty-third,
Twenty-fifth, and Twenty-sixth.
On tho South Sldo, tho Fifth would
lose Its southwest portion to n now
ward that would bo mndo out of tho
north pnrt of tho Twenty-ninth. Tho
Sixth would split and a now wnrd
would be orected around Washington
Park. A now ward would bo built
from tho south half of tho present
Seventh and tho north port of tho
Eighth, with Seventy-first street as a
Tho present Twenty-seventh on tho
Northwest Sldo would bo sovored at
Irving Park boulevard, with a now
ward bounded roughly by Irving Park,
Belmont, Central nvenue, and tho
river. Another wnrd would bo mado
from tho Fifteenth and Twenty-seventh
Wards, between Western, Sceloy,
Fullerton, nnd Chicago avenues. Still
nnother now ono would bo created be
tweon North avonuo ond Madison
street, Ashland nvcnuo nnd Sceloy
Redisricting on tho West Sldo con
templates two now wards In territory
now In tho Twelfth and Thirty-fourth
Wards. In tho Town of Lake tho
north lino of tho Twenty-ninth is sent
south to Fifty-fifth street. A now wnrd
is outlined between Sixty-third nnd
Sovonty-flfth streets, from South Park
avonuo to Western avonuo. Another
Is figured botween Forty-third nnd
Fifty-ninth, nnd botween Wcntworth
avonuo nnd Stnto streot.
It Is understood that tho bulk ot tho
county committeemen In each party
nnd n majority of tho aldermen havo
approved tho now mnp, ond thnt pros
pective mombors of tho next loglsln
turo havo agreed to go along with It,
ns long as It has been mndo an organ
isation proposition with both parties.
