A referendum in Kansas confirms the legislature's call for a constitutional convention

The Kansas electorate confirmed in a referendum the February vote in the territorial legislature to summon a convention to write a new constitution in preparation for statehood. The result was positive in a ratio of four to one. An election to choose delegates took place in June and the convention assembled in July at Wyandotte. (By John Osborne)
