A delegate convention of the Republicans of he Third Congressional District of the State of Kansas, is hereby called to meet in the city 1 Wintleld, on Thursday, June 12, 1902. at 10 o'clock a. m. for the purpose of nominating a candidate for congress. The basis of repreentation in said convention shall be one delegate for each 150 votes or major fraction thereof cast for Geo.

A. Clark for Secretary of State, in 1900; under which rule delegates are apportioned to the various counties as follows: Cowley 24 Neosho -16 .31 Wilson. ..14 Total. -181 It is recommended that the county central committees of the several counties select the time for holding the county conventions to name delegates and alternates for the congressional convention, and that the names of all delegates and alternates be certified to the chairman of this committee at Columbus, Kanas, immediately thereafter. By order of Third, District Congressional Committee.

McNEILL, Chairman. SETH G. WELLS, Secretary. February 8, 1902. The Severyite comes to us much improved in appearance owing to a "new dress" of bright faced type for their reading matter columns.

The Severyte is a neat, newsy, sensible and wellconducted paper. The greatest writers on financial questions have been poor men. The so-called champions of labor are almost invariably loafers. The most energetic "reformers" have characters which need reforming. It is now feared the brigands are afraid to take the money sent to redeem Miss Stone from soak.

We can assure them it is not "queer" that is to say the money is all right. The "queer" part of it is that the, brigands are afraid to take it. The papers keep repeating that the widow of General John C. Fremont is living in poverty and destitute circumstances, in California. Is it not a fact that she receives a $2,000 per annum pension from the government? As she has no husband to keep it seems she should be able to get along on $40 The only objection anybody has ever heard to George E.

Cole, leading candidate for governor, is that office holding is likely to become chronic with him. He has held sixteen years of county office in Crawford county and six years of state office But he has made a mighty good officer all of the time. The blow has fallen. The publisher of the Kansas. Advocate refuses to apologize to Sister Anna Diggs for that anti-prohibition editorial and Anna is no longer editor of the Advocate.

The proprietor says she never was the editor, but only a contributor--she was advertised as editor simply to draw trade---as a fake. But she is out entirely now, and the Advocate is bidding for the patronage of the whiskey element. Joseph Bristow, fourth assistant postmaster general, don't drink, chew, smoke, swear nor lie. He is absolutely honest, painstaking and truthful: and is one of the most industrions men it in the government service, and yet is given out, almost every day, that he is to lose his job.

The Wheatley crowd carried their favorite date by a vote of 24 to 6.a The Wheatley contingent insists that Skidmore's support comes almost entirely from the pops and the bolting element in the Cherokee county Republican party. This, of course, the Skidmore crowd denies.

Their difference will likely be settled in the Cherokee county convention, as it should be. Congressman A. M. Jackson is gaining considerable prominence over his telegraph bill. He says the profits made by telegraph companies are too big, and their service not good enough.

He wants the government to buy up all the lines, give better service and charge smaller toll. Is it not about time to ransom Miss Stone some more?
