On November 24, 1891, the Republican National Committee called the next National Convention, to meet at Minneapolis on June 7, 1892. The call announces that each State will be entitled to four delegates-at-large, and for each Representative in Congress-at-large, two delegates; and each Congressional District, each Territory and the D. C., two delegates. The delegatesat-large are to be chosen by Štate conventions, called on not less than twenty days' public notice, and not less than thirty days before the National Convention; the Congressional District delegates at conventions called by the Congressional Committee of each district in the same manner as the nomination for a Representative in Congress is made in the district; provided that in any Congressional District where there is no Republican Congressional Committee, owing to the redistricting of the State under the next Congressional apportionment, the Republican State Committee shall appoint from the residents of the district a committee to call a district convention to elect district delegates. “The Territorial delegates are to be chosen as the nomination of a delegate in Congress is made, and the delegates of the D. C. at a convention constituted of members elected in primary district assemblies held under the call and direction of the Republican Central Committee of the D. C., which committee is to be chosen, one from each Assembly District, on the first Tuesday of January, 1892, at 7 P. M., at a place of meeting in each Assembly District, to be designated by a joint call with not less than ten days' notice, signed by the member of the National Committee for the D. C., and the chairman of the Republican Central Committee of the district. Alternate delegates are to be elected in the same manner and at the same time as the delegates,"
