The Banks Commercial Club
has inaugurated an advertising
campaign by which the claims
and advantages of the hustling
town and vicinity are to be made
known to homeseekers. 2000 cir
culars have been printed which
members will inclose in their cor
respondence. One side of the
circular contains a finely execu
ted map showing the location of
the city on the direct route to the
coast front Portland, and also at
the junction of the P. R. & N.
and United Railways. The re
verse contains a brief summary
of the inducements offered the
new comer, and emphasizes the
fact that as much of the country
is yet undeveloped there remain
abundant opportunities for the
man of limited means.
