Now that the next Arkansas Land Congress promises to be one of the biggest advertise ments the State has ever con ceived in an iudustrial way, a move has been quietly started to see if ex-President Roosevelt can not be secured as the star at traction in 1911. It is understood that he has an engagement in Kansas about the time the congress is to be held here and it is believed it would be quite possible to bring him to Little Rock. The land congress is a great development enter prise in line with his professed ideas of industrial economy and improvement, and it is urged, would naturally appeal to him. Where there are thousands in the State who differ with him radically on many political issues, and others who regard him as of the circus variety, nobody ques tions his capacity as a drawing card. As he will now be free from the rigid routine of public duties, it is believed he would not be averse to paying the city a visit at the time of the big land meeting.
