Recently The Argus commented on
the fact i hat the coming session of the
Farmers' National congress would
greatly ailveiti.se this city, smd indi
cated that the notices of tiie meeting
were being published in all parts of
the country, to this city's obvious ad
vantage. In a letter jut received
from President John M. Stahl of the
congress, further information as to the
extent of the advertising is given. The
Chicago. III., Hditor The Argus: I
see that you speak of the advertising
Rock Island is getting on account of
the F. N". C. We have sent out seven
different notices and to all the week
lies and semi-weeklies of importance.
The clipping bureaus show that they
have been generally published. In ad
dition, many of the large semi-weeklies,
like the semi-weekly Globe-Democrat,
and big weeklies, have had spe
cial articles occupying as high as three
columns. Then some of the daily
papers have had two notices.
Also, a majority of our dele
gates write about the session when
they ret in n home, not only for the lo
cal fnvr. but quite a number for sev
eral papers. The "patent insides" have
had notices of the coming session, and
will publish accounts of it. The lead
ing farm papers throughout the coun
try will publish good accounts of the
session. Cordially yours.
"JOHN M. STAHL."
President Stahl's letter so clearly
shows the manner in which the city
is being brought to the attention of the
public throughout the country, that
further comment is unnecessary. It
might be s.tated. however, that the
pleasure of the delegates and the man
ner in which they are received and en
tertained while here, will greatly en
hanee the value of the advertising, for
while they are in the city there will
be an opportunity to show them exact
ly what Rock Island's advantages are.

On convening the circuit court this
afternoon. Judge V. H. Gest entered
an order, appointing C. B. Marshall
