NEW DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE
Commercial Clubs of Six States Meet
at Helena May 3 and 4.
WANT TO ADVERTISE NORTHWEST
(overwore and Mayors Are Aeked to

Mate and Cities Presi
dent Matthew Talk.
OR EAT FALLS. Mont. March 9. (Spe
cial.) The Northwestern Development
league will be organized at Helena on
May S and 4. according to plans agreed
on at the meeting In this city, March 3
and 4. of the Montana Association of Com
mercial Clubs Secretaries, which has
charge of promoting the new organlxatlon.
The association named Its president and
ecretary, George E. Mathews of Lewis
ton and C. A. Meade of Helena, and Oli
ver M. Holmes, secretary of the local
board of commerce, to have charge of all
arrangements for the Helena meeting.
The plans as outlined for the new organ
ization Is to have the states of Washing
ton. Oregon, Idaho, Montana, North Da
kota, .South Dakota and Minnesota be
come the members of It, the session to
perfect the organization being composed of
delegates to represent the states by the
governors of the several states, and by
delegates from the scores of commercial
organizations of the cities and towns ot
The committee named has the assurance
that Qovernocr Edward L. Norrls will Join
with them In signing an Invitation to the
commercial clubs and will send a personal
communication to the governors of the
states asking them to come In person It
possible and if not to name some person
to represent them at the meeting.
Six Governors F.xproted.
With the official sanction of tha gov
ernor and Influences at work In the sev
eral states to bring the executives of
these states to the meeting. It Is fully
expected by the committee that there will
be a half dozen governors on Montana
soil for a couple of days and from three
to four hundred men anxious to promote
the Interests of the great northwest.
"We are going after home builders,"
said President Mathews, discussing the
proposed league. "Wa can get peopla by
tho thousands of some classes, but what
the northwest of today wants Is the home
builder the man who comes with his fam
ily and money to settle on tha public do
main and cultivate the soli; the head of a
fomlly who has the interest of the com
munity and the state at heart and Is
anxious to have the state dotted with
school houses and churches and busy
towns and cities. That is the class this
neV league, which we hav named the
Northwestern Development league, will
seek to Interest in this section of the coun
try. "We have at heart a common Interest
and shall pursue a policy which we believe
will promote the common good of all. But
we do not limit individual effort on the
part of the states in tha league. Wa ex
pect that each will pursue Individual ef
fort to bring settlers to Its acres of un
used land and we want them to do so.
But there will be a larger organlxatlon for
co-operation in obtaining thing from the
railroads that no on of the states could
secure separately. ,-
Want All the troth Told.
"It the purpose of the league to have
a president, vice president, a secretary and
a treasurer and . bgard of directors made
up of delegates of the several states. There
will also bs an executive commutes com
posed of the best publicity men in each
state of the league. ' This committee will
meet each three months and will plan
work to be done and check up results for
tho preceding months. It is expected In
this way to gain the greatest possible
publicity for this section of the country.
And here I want to emphasize two facts.
(What this country-"-the northwest needs
Is correct publicity. sWe do not want ex
aggeration. We want the truth. Truth
about this section Is marvelous, and yet
It always bears the earmarks of truth
and, therefore, Is always believable. There
has been a tendency to misrepresentation
In two directions. One has been a sort
of vainglory spirit of unconscionable
penny-a-Ilners who write Btorles to sell to
"Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, and all that
section of the country have suffered from
the time source. The weather reports al
ways were the worst samples. The crop
failures onfy were fit for the press. Crops
of the bumper class did not cause a ruf
fle of excitement In the news mind of
"Now the league hopes to rectify this
by Inspiring the sources of news with the
truth. We want them to tell of the de
lightful weather and the beautiful skies
and the natural attractiveness of the en
tire country. With these things set be
fore the people as they are the north
west's future Is assured, and if we can
do this we have Justified the putting a
new league Into the field.
Will Advertise la Knst.
"We shall advertise through the east and
it may be later send a man or men through
the eastern centers to do personal work
with land agenda there In directing set
tlers to us. eW hope and expect to co
tiers to us. We hope and expect to co
thelr exhibit cars through the middle and
eastern states. This source of advertis
ing is a most profitable one and there
seems to be good assurance we shall be
given hearty support by the railroads
whose lines tap this section.
"We want to divert the immigration now
going to the southwest and to the Cana
dian northwest to this section. We hope
to get It through St. Paul and Minneapolis,
but if it comes to us through Omaha w
shall not feel hurt. We shall try to make
