him into the convention
In the meantime the Chair made I
short speech in which he congratulated
the convention for their excellent nom

behooved the Republicans to put up a

J Booth came forward and said
he had just heard of the nomination
bat he hoped that there would be as
much cause for rejoicing on August

any other man in that body He had
framed the bill on bounties on home
manufactures and worked it through
both houses The governor had not
vetoed any of his bills The one on
bounties had caused a circulation of
300000 in Utah county alone He
then dilated a while on the superiority
of the Republican party over the Dem
ocratic and thanked the convention
for the honor conferred upon him con

of statehood is not involved in the
