NEW OUTING PLACE ASSURED. Arrangements Are Completed for Opening a Resort on the Desplaines River on June 1. A new outing resort on the Desplaines River is assured by the arrangements which were completed by E. A. Cummlngs & Co. yesterday for the development of the tract of eighteen, acres where Ogden avenue runs-into the Desplaines at Riverside. In the afternoon Mr. Cuicmings took out a party interested in the company which is to improve the grounds, and a careful Inspection of the plans was made. They provide for the building of pavilions, restaurants, baths in the river, toboggan slides, and a number of other amusements. An amphitheater where shows will be given will break the monotony of outdoor life. Work will be commenced at once, and the resort is expected to open June 1. While it is to be operated by an independent company, it will be in cooperation with the Cicero and Proviso electric line, and will be planned to give that company business in carrying people to and from the grounds. In that respect the resort resembles the new place of outdoor amusement which the Chicago City railway company has built near Washington Park. The grounds will be free to the patrons of the street car line.
