It divided one giant first of the first ward; shuffled the precincts in the first, second and third wards, and, among other things, put three people out of of- fice. As a result of the redistricting, aldermen believe they have fairly distributed the voting population.

Since the growth of the city will be on the two ends, that distribution is proper, aldermen say.
