A a few Early picnic parties spent the Day out on the Salado Exchange. What it has Donk is doing and promises to do for san Antonio. Let work at Galveston and new Orleans a the subscription committee and the final meeting. Last Friday afternoon just As the six of clock whistle announced the close of another Days work. Secretary Granville Martin returned from his Days work of soliciting the wherewith necessary to sustain the commercial Exchange for the next twelve months. He reported a successful Days work. Speaking of the Exchange and its condition Secretary Martin remarked a you can state that the soliciting committee is still at its work and will continue in the Field until saturday 6 p. Rn., feb. 21, at which time it is to be hoped that a sufficient sum will have been raised to permit the Exchange to com Merise Active work. After this Money has been raised a continued or. Martin a it is the intention of the organization to fit up a suite of rooms for the reception of its members and visitors to the City and also for the transaction of All of its the Secretary wanted it impressed upon the reporters mind that in the Tilting up of this suite of rooms nothing very costly would be indulged in As it his intention to make every Dollar go As far As possible and to give subscribers the full value of their Money in everything to be done by the Exchange. When the organization gets in ship shape said the Secretary he will appoint his assistants whom will he put to work answering numerous com run Leat ions that Are being received from All parts of the country compiling data relative to the City Sud surrounding territory and to attend to general work to be carried on by the Exchange. Speaking of the needs for such an Orani Zaniou As the one or. Martin represents he referred Tolt past work saying a we have already received Tinmun cations from a Large number of people seeking information about our City Aud surrounding country and in each Case asking for printed matter for from one to Twenty people. Some of these parties apply direct to the Exchange for the information while others sent to the Post master for printed matter which is turned Over to the Exchange to be forwarded. Bankers and merchants of our City have also received letters asking for information and to every Case the commercial Exchange has a promptly forwarded such information As it deemed Best. I merely make these remarks to show of what vital importance it is that san Antonio have an organization Well prepared to attend to such duties As the by this time the Sun had travelled so far beneath the Western horizon As to make an Angle of Orty live degrees if it wanted to throw its rays of Light through the shutters of Secretary Martins office. As though realizing the dark Ness that had crept in during the interesting talk the Secretary changed his True and voice remarking a now or. Representative not wanting to ride a free horse to death and wishing to have the Good will of the local press in everything that is undertaken by the Exchange and not desiring to bore the readers of your valuable paper i will wind up my talk by calling attention to the manner in which the Exchange advertised the City of san Antonio at the new Orleans and the Galveston Mardi gras. Your Humble servant left san Antonio for a two Days trip to Galveston expecting to take two Days off for himself but having sent Down a couple of thousand copies of advertising matter and find lug on his arrival such an immense throng of people from All parts of the country he concluded that if he failed to superintend in person the distribution of the matter that had been forwarded he would be losing a Golden Opportunity. So instead of getting the rest contemplated he got about four hours out of forty eight. Two men were stationed at the Corners of Tremont and Market streets two of the principal thoroughfares in the City for two Days handing out print eur matter to the numerous visitors there. In addition to this All out going trains during my visit were freely covered with san Antonio the Secretary also visited new York and foreign steamships that were in port distributing advertising matter to every person with whom he came in Contact. A this is the work that was carried on in Galveston and it is my opinion that next to King mourns sail Antonio was the Best thing advertised there. At new Orleans messers. Geo. H. Hartwell and g. S. Melroy had this line of work in charge they carrying from Here for circulation in in the Orason t City some 10,000 pamphlets and other advertising matter setting Forth the numerous advantages of this place As a commercial and Taufao Turing Center. Now to show you what advertising does communications have already bean received by the Secretary of the commercial Exchange from parties who have received some of the printed matter distributed at these places. These parties want to and a place to locate not being satisfied with their present location. I give this in order to show the people of this City a concluded or. Martin a that while the commercial Exchange is not yet a certainty in a financial sense it has gone ahead in an enterprising Maimer to build up and push Forward the Metropolis of state legislature.
