under the system of publicity


Senior Member
One educated, zealous, active superior—and the entire department entrusted to him is, under the system of publicity, aiding other departments
by its example, organization and training officials. One governor with such qualities—and one-fiftieth part of Russia is prosperous, a second, a third—and all the people cannot recognize themselves, they will be the same and yet not the same in this general uplift.

What does the bolded mean? Thanks a lot.

    Apparently, somewhere there is a publicity department or, at least, an accepted method of publicising things -> under the system that is used for generating publicity,
