The republican city convention last night selected A. W. Hamilton, for chairman, and John Bennett for secretary. Mr. Hamilton, in taking the chair, said the fair fame of the city depended on all conventions nominating good tickets. G. Frank Allmendinger was nominated for mayor by acclamation. Reginald Spokes was nominated for president of the council by acclamation. A ballot was taken for clerk, which resulted, Daniel O'Keefe 46, N. D. Gates 13, Geo. Pond 1. Daniel O'Keefe was nominated. When nominations for justice were called for, John 'Bennett took the floor, and said that politics were entirely out of place in this office. The office of justice wanted a man who could not be swayed by any motives of fear or friendship. Justice Pond was such a man, and had proven the most economical justice for the county ever on the bench. He moved his nomination by acclamation. Col. Déan seconded tfie nomination with pleasure, because four years ago they had endorsed the same nomination. Justice E. B. Pond was then placed on the ticket. C. E. Hiscock didn't understand that the republicans had any candidate for assessor, and consequently thought they had best renominate the present incumbent, Patrick O'Hearn, who had performed the duties of the office in a satisfactory manner. Politics, he said, made very little difference in this office. J. T. Jacobs seconded the nomination, and it went through by acclamation. Col. Dean then named the city committee as follows : A. L. Noble, Conrad Noli, M. M. Steffey, W. C. Stevens, N. D. Gates and Dr. C..G. Darling.
