How the Nominations made by the Hutchinson Convention are Kecelved, TOPEKA, Kan., May 7.—[Special]— The readers of the NEWS will remember the repeated forecast made several weeks ago, as to the kind of candidate the delegates comprising the Hutchinson convention would demand for con- grcssman-at-large, also that the asseiv tiott was made that the most availably man among all the able and wortbjlf candidates would be Gov. Anthony, ttui man who, amidst such enthusiasm received the unanimous endorsement qf the convention on Thursday. Whtlfe there is not a competent man in K;tn!- sas who has not had his little political quarrels; while no mala able for the great undertaking but that has opposed somebody Iri their unwarranted demands, yet ijt was believed thot George T. Anthony would meet with as little opposition from all the kickers in the state as any man who could have been selected Besides he is so ably equipped in , ail respects to take the lead in the coming campaign, where the burden v'<jjj}.', be to show the deception of the quacitt. statesmen and persuade returning reason among their victims. That tiie true situation was fully realized shown by the enthusiastic manner'/in which he was finally supported!by many of the friends and follower* 1 of other candidates. ' Several new candidates for sttote printer are now passing rapidly through the various stages of devcl/o] ment, and will be ready to meet their friends at the state convention with the claim that the party should stUiid by them. The part taken by tho) Tof. peka Capital in the Third district 'contest has weakened the chiineei's of Maj. Hudson with some people, jand that is being taken advantage of. 1 Bernard Kelly, the United Sfbvtes pension agent for several of tmeso western states, and the man whorroyft several millions of dollars to the relter. ans from the Topeka agency;, has bVcn a very sick man; in fact he is yet lill, and his recovery is exceedingly slciw. He is not yet able to see visitors, iLut his physicians think he will recoverA : The politicians are thick in tint oirt. I They are on their way home from tllk , big convention, and one and all *x\ freely expressing themselves well MA\ isfied with the work done And For That Reason Marie .lansen Quits i. Francis IVllson'a Company. NEW YORK, May 7. —Marie Jansen, who has been tho bright particular star of Js'raneis Wilson's company ever since that peripatetic imitator of Be Wolf Hopper made his debut as a proprietor, closed her connection with the concern to-day under circumstances not conducive to future pleasant relations. Business with the Wilson cjbmpany lias been quite bad during the present season, and when a falling off in the dollars received at the box office was inaugurated a proposition was made to the fair Marie that she should forego her regular Balalry, which reached far up into tho hundreds, and take in its stead a percentage of the profits. AB there were no profits in sight she naturally refused, and as a consequence, although she has done her share iu turning thousands of dol- li -s i-to the Wilson treasury in the past, strained relations ensued, .lan- sen is comfortably fixed so far as this world's goods are concerned, and will not need to go into the chorus of any traveling show to gain a livelihood. Tho number of her suitors is unlimited, but so far she has preferred to live "fancy free." Now that she has quit the Wilson concern, it is thought that she will employ her energies for a time in going gunning for A. II. Canby, Wilson's "me too," who has been talc­ ing Marie's uame in vain of late to a greater extent than professional or managerial courtesy would warrant. Those who are supposed to know say that she can make things lively for a good many people if she has a mind to. i Goo.W.CIilUlsmid Party at Kama* City: KANSAS CITY, May 7.— lion. :0eo. : >V* Childs and party arrived to-day over the Burlington from?''
