Announcement of the Kepublican Na
tional Committee Concerning' the
Method of Call in- the next Kenubli
van National Convention.
A circular was issued by the Re
publican National Co in in it tee, on Oc
tober 8, 1880, calling attention to tho
By Rule 10 of the Convention of
June, 1880, it was provided that the
Republican National Committee
"shall, within the next twelve months,
prescribe methods or rules for the se
lection of delegates to the National
Convention in conformity therewith,
provided that such methods or rules
shall include and secure to the several
Congressional Districts in the United
States the right to elect their own
delegates to the National Convention."
Preliminary to carrying into effect
the foregoing rule, the National com
mittee, on July 1, 1880, adopted the
Resolved, That in order to aid this
committee in carrying oat the instruc
tions of the National Convention, to
prescribe and announce within one
year the methods or rules for electing
delegates to the next National Con
vention, request is hereby madtj for
the transmission to the committee of
plans and suggestions on the subject
from any person prior to October 15,
At a subsequent meeting the time
for such transmission was extended
to February 1, 1881; and it was also
voted that a full meeting of the com
mittee should be called, to consider
the subject, some time, in March, 1881.
Request was also made of the Re
publicans to whom the circular was
sent, and of all others, to forward any
plans or suggestions they might de
sire to make to the otticers of the
committee before February 1, 1881.
The following plans had been pre
viously submitted tit the meeting of
July 1. 1880:
PLAN OF 3111. WILLIAM E. CIIANDLFIt
OF NEW HAMPSHIRE.
The Republican National Conven
tion of 1884 shall consist of four dele-gates-at-large
from each state and two
deleeates from each Congressional
District, each to be chosen at
popular conventions in such manner
as the Republicans of each state may
determine, provided the delegates
from each Congressional D. strict shall
be the choice of the Republicans of
that district. The conventions within
the states for the election of delegates
to the National Convention shall be
held at least one month before the
time for the meeting of the National
Convent:on. Notices of contests may
be given the National Committee,
accompanied by full printed state
ments of the grounds of contest, which
shall also be made public; and prefer
ence in the order of hearing and de
termining contests shall be given by
the convention according to the dates
of the reception of such notices aud
statements by the National Com
mittee. PLAN OF MR. JOHN A. MARTIN OF
That the Republican National Con
vention for 1884 shall be composed as
follows: First, each state shall be en
titled to four delegates-at-large. Sec
ond, each Congressional District shall
be entitled to one delegate. Third, in
addition to delegates-at-large, each
state shall be entitled to representa
tion in proportion to its Republican
vote, that is. one delegate for every
12,000 Republican vote? polled for
President in 1880, or fraction of over
one half that number.
The meeting of the National Com
mittee having been called for Wash
ington, March 5, 18S1, Messrs. William
E. Chandler, Edward McPherson, and
George C. Gorham were designated by
the officers of the Committee as a
committee t receive all suggestions
that might be made, and to prepare
and submit a plan at that meeting.

The renewed attention of all Republi
cans was called to the question ; and
they were requested to communicate
their views at any time before March
1. Editors of Republican papers were
requested to publish the request and
plans, and to discuss the subject edi
torially. At the meeting- of the National
Committee at the Arlington Hotel in
Washington. March, 5, 1881, Messrs.
Chandler and McPherson submitted
the following plan:
METHOD OF CALLING THE REPUBLI
CAN NATIONAL CONVENTION OF 1884.
The Republican National Conven
tion of 1884, shall consist of four ..'elo-gaes-at-large
from each state, and
two delegates from each Congressional
disti ict ;an additional delegate-at-large.
for each Republican Senator in the
then existing or next preceding con
cress, and an additional district dele
gate for each Republican Representa
tive in such Congress, all to be
chosen at popular conventions in such
manner as the Republicans of each
state may determine; provided the
delegates from each Congressional
District shall bo the choice of the
Republicans of that district, in a con
vention held within the district for
The conventions within the states
for the election of delegates to the
National Convention shall be held at
least one month before the time of
the meeting of the National Conven
tion. Notices of contests may be
given to the National Committee, ac
companied by full printed statements
of the grounds of contest, which shall
also be made public; and preference
in the order of hearing and determin
ing contests shall be given by the con
vention, according to the dates of the
reception of such notices and state
ments by the National Committee.
Mr. (Jorham submitted the follow
ing plan :
METHOD OF CALLING TUK REPUBLI
CAN CONVENTION OF 1884.
The Republican National Conven
tion of 1884 should consist of a num
ber of delegates from each state
equal to twice the number of its Sen
ators and Representatives in Con
gress; and the Republicans in each
state, and others who will act wilh
them, should direct the manner of
choosing its delegates.
Messrs. McPherson and Gorham
were invited to participate in the dis
cussion of this subject by the commit
tee, and there was protracted debate
cn the t o questions, first, of district
representation, and second, of repre
sentation based upon Republican votes.
Owing to differences of opinion as
to the method of working out the de
tails of district representation, and as
to representation uaseu upon repub
lican votes, the following resolution
was offered, and was unanimously
ANNOUNCEMENT BY THE REP UB LI DAN
liesolced, That in accordance with
the order of the Republican National
Convention of 1880, the call for the
Convention of 1834 shall provide for
securing to the several congressional
districts the right to elect their own
delegates to such national convention;
"That the details of the methods or
rules to be included in such call shall
be determined at a future meeting of
the committee, to be held within one
year from this date; and that the
whole subject bo now referred to a
committee of five, who shall make re
port at such meeting." Tho commit
tee appointed under the foregoing
resolution consists of Wm. E. Chand
ler, of New Hampshire; Thomas C.
Piatt, of New York ; John M. Forbes,
of Massachusetts; John A. Martin, of 1
Kansas; Chauncey I. Filley, of Mis
souri. It was also instructed to consider
and report upon the subject of Terri
torial and District of Columbia repre
sentation in the National Convention
and on the National Committee.
Further opinions of Republicans
and full editorial discussion desired
by the committee, on the subject com
mitted to them. All the plans sug
gested by the prior committee were
published in the New York Times of
Felruary 28. 1881. Gen. Jno. A. Mar
tin has printed an argument in favor
of his plan, which he will send to ap
plicants, who may address him at the
office of the Champion, Atchison, Kan
sas. Suggestions on the important ques
tions involved may be transmitted to
Mr. Win. E. Chandler, at Washington.

Nebraska seems to be having an eu
idemic of suicide. The latest victim
is Henry Housley of Hamilton Co. who
rre Can (Do.
Shall tho Women Vote.
It will be two years or more before
the electors of Nebraska will be called
upon to decide by their ballots tho
question of women suffrage as regards
this state. In that time the question
will be given a healthy agitation and
the contest decided in accordance with
the cool and sober judgment of the
people, The Sun advocates the consti
tutional amendment this far: Give the
women of Nebraska the ballot if they
want it. The mere matter of sex is
ground to3 narrow to stand upon and
question their right. But don't give
them the ballot until thoioughly con
vinced that t hey dont want it. Don't
be guided in making your decision by
the clamorings of a lot of short-haired
women and long-haired men who
climb on to every new issue for the
Siiko of a little transient notoriety.
They do not, to any great degree index
the sentiment of the great majority of
women for whom this inestimable
political blessing is claimed. The
women of this country are, as a class,
intelligent and well informed. They
are decidedly good judges of their own
wants and to the extent of our exper
ience they never lack emphasis in pro
claiming them and demanding their
fullOlmeut. By the conditions of sex
which a wise Creator has imposed, the
burdens of a family are divided in ac
cordance wilh what the eternal fitness
of things would seem to suggest. The
man is the bread winner and the busi
ness manager the maternal and house
hold duties rest upon the women. The
world has jogged along on this plan
for quite a number of years and the
women, instead of degenerating, have
grown more beautiful and accomp
lished with every generation. It is
barely possible that the time has
come when the programme should be
changed, but let us first be sure of it.
Every mau who caies to know can
ascertain. Ask your wife, sister,
mother or lady acquaintance. Learn
if they are greatly disturbed or dis
tressed by reason of political disfran
chisement, and you will arrive at the
very heart of the question. This is
not a question of sentiment, bat one
of prudence and public policy. We
have great and abiding faith in the
judgment of woman. If the intelli
gent and loving mothers and sisters
of this Nation or state asked the right
of suffrage, we should feel that there
is some grand motive that inspired the
request. We should entertain the
same faith in her ability to treat the
trust intelligently and wisely that
abides in every mau who trusts
to woman his fortune or happiness.
And it is these women who should de
cide the question, and who doubts
they would decide it wisely V If they
feel that their homes would be any
happier or the world any better by
reason of their voting, then in the
name of all lhat is good let them vote.
Dear Herald The outlook hei.
is much more favorable than it w.is
a few months ago; our starving
stack of then are now fat. Never
have we had sucli feed at this season
before. The predictions of good crops
seem to be verified, as all vegetation
looks well; we have already had more
"garden truck" than we had all last
season, even though a hare of the ap
propriation for seed failed to reach
us. Nothing has come to this oilice,
(probably the most important office in
the county) except two small pack
ages sent to myself by Senator Saun
ders, and some to two neighbors
through the influence of relatives in
Iowa: yet we have gardens.

fruit that all promises well.
A slow soaking rain has been falling
