McCarkrtn, candidate on the Republican ticket for nomination at the primary Sept 15 tor the office of representative in the Illinois general assembly, has called the attention of The Argus to a misstatement in the Aledo news section of last Saturday's is sue. The article In question announced that Mr. McCaskrin would speak in Aledo Saturday afternoon, when he had issued bills and planned to speak Saturday night.

Notwithstanding, The Argus is glad that Mr. McCaskrin called at tention to the misstatement It is needless to say that the error was unintentional.
