Milwaukee, Aug. 19. - After the rencmination of Governor Scofield by the Republican convention Wednesday night the delegates adjourned until morning. With the galleries comfortably filled and nearly all the delesrates in their seats, Chairman Griffln called the convention to order about 10:25 o'clock. The chairman announced that the first business in order would be nominations for lieutenant governor. Jesse Stone of Watertown and Frank L. Tucker of Omro were named for the place, the ballot resulting in the nomination of Stone by an overwhelming majority. William H. Froehlich of Jackson and Walter L. Houser of Mondovi, candidates for secretary of state, were then placed in nomination. Froehlich was made the nominee by a narrow majority on the first ballot. When the order for nominations for state treasurer was reached the dullness ivhich characterized the proceedings thus far gave way to excitement among the delegates. Quite a tussle was expected over this nomination, as several candidates were out for the place. Charles M. Hambright of Racine, J. T. Davidson of Soldiers Grove, A. G. Nelson of Waupaca, Alfred G. Cypraesen of Eau Claire and J. B. Jensen of Pierce county were the gentlemen offered to the convention for the place. J. D. Davidson captured the nomination on the first ballot, receiving 532% votes or half a vote more than was necessary for a choice. Hambright was his nearest competitor, receiving 207% votes, the balance being divided among the other three candidates. Davidson is a La Follette man.
