Sub District Delegates.
We are requested by Republicans 1
of Sub district. No 8, Summit, Jt Her
eon and Clinton Tps. and Saxonburg
borough, to state that a meeting will
be held in Saxouburg oa Tuesday.
March 27, at 1 o'clock P. M , for the
purpose of settling upon the two sun
delegates to be elected in tbe same
for the Congressional and National
Delegate district Conventions to be
held at New Castle.
Oiher sub districts where they con
venieutlv can, will likely take s;nii! ji'
aorion to the above before the Pri
mary of April 14.
Where there are but two townships
in a sab district there will be but lit
tle trouble in having an understand
ing or arrangement about, the said
delegates to New Castle; but where
there three or four, or, as in oue sub
district, No 13, where there are six
election districts, in these it will be
more difficult to have concert of ac
tion or agreement upon the siid dele
gates: There is time remaining
however, to yet have some action iu
every enb district.
The following is the action taken
in Lawrence and Beaver counties of
this district concerning the election o*
these delegates to the New Castle
district Conventions when held:
Each sub district shall elect two
delegates this year, one delegate to
act in the Congressional convention
and one delegate to act in the Na
tional Delegate convention, who sh3l'
be voted for separately, and the per
sons receiving the highest nutuber oi
votes iu the sub district shall be the
delegates to the respective conven

listened attentively, and then said,
"That is wonderful." Another re
