Sl'BlNGFIEl.D, July 26. The Republican
state convention was called to order by J.
II. Clark, chairman of the state central
committee, and 1,835 delegates answered
to their uames at the proper time. James
K. Mann, of Chicago, was called to the
chair as temporary chairman and deliv
ered an address in which he laid the pres
ent industrial depression and unrest at
the doors of tbe Democracy and generally
gave that party a "roasting," as is the cus
tom at Republican gatherings. T. N.
Jamieson, oi Chic :o, was made tem
porary secretary and other preliminary
business was transacted, the most import
ant being the adoption of a resolution in
favor of the state taking charge of the
Permanent O (fleers Chosen.
The convention took recess and during
the same the organization committee se
lected ex-GoVf rnor Fifer for permanent
chairman, J. B. Van Cleave, of Chicago,
secretary, an! John R. Fraser.of this city.
serjeant-at-armi The convention reas
sembled at 3:20 p. m. and affirmed the ac
tions of the organization and credential
committees. Ex-Governor Fifer was
escorted to the chair and spoke at
some length on the issues before the coun
try anil was loudly cheered during and at
tbe conclusion of his speech. At his con.
elusion Charles E. Fuller at once brought
to tbe convention's notice the important
question of nominating a United States'
senator. The speaker favored such nom
ination and said: "I believe it to be the
policy of the Republican parry today to
declare who is our choice for Uuited States
senator. I move that this convention
proceed to declare its choice for a Vnited
States senator to succeed Shelby M. Cul-
But the Convention Would Not.
Chairman Noble, of Cook county, said
he believed there was a dis)iositiou in the
convention to meet the question fairly
mid at once, and Noble continued:
believe it injudicious for this convention to
name a candidate for the United States
senate." Great applause. He argued
that such a nomination would deprive tbe
party of many good workers aud that tbe
Republicans were not in the same condi
tion as tbe Democrats were when they
nominated Palmer and that nomination
was no precedent for this convention. A
t'umlier of speeches were made, some of
tbe speakers expressing aucer at Cook
comity for precipitating the question, but
amid grent disorder it was demonstrated
that Cook couuty had plenty of outside
help. When the vote on laying Fuller's
motion on the table was announced it was
curried 1,019 to 315.
