On motion of E. G. Lapham, the Convention proceeded to the informal viva voce vote for a candidate for County Judge.

The roll being called, every Delegate present, 60 in number, named

Hon. Bowen Whiting, of Geneva; whereupon he was declared unanimously nominated.

The Convention then proceeded in the same manner to designate a candidate for District Attorney, with the following result:

Tho's M. Howell was named by   39
E. G. Lapham was named by        16
Geo. R. Parburt was named by       1
Mr. Lapham, after moving the unanimous nomination of Tho's M. Howell, Esq., returned his thanks to those members of the Convention who had named him for the office, as it was an expression unsolicited and wholly unexpected by him; for he had at all times positively refused to be considered a candidate for nomination, and could not have accepted if nominated.  Mr. Howell was then unanimously nominated.
