cial membership meeting tonight to
hear the proposition of the represen
tatives of the Great Eastern News
paper league, who are touring the
west and presenting through the
press its industrial conditions and
the advantages for investments in the
various cities. The league finds mil
lions of dollars are- lying practically
idle in the east, because ail of the
prolitable investments are cornered
by the larger linanciers. The ma
jority of the jeople holding thi
money are unaware oi me opportune
ties of the west. It is tne league's
mission to investigate and picture
the conditions ol this part of the
country in four of the great daily
newspapers of the east, give the
capitalists of that section a quiet
huuch to turn their eyes toward tht
west, and disabuse the belief that
cowboys and Indians continue to ter
nfy the inhabitants of the towns ol
