THE FIRST REPUBLICAN CONVENTION–JOHN C. FREMONT NOMINATED FOR PRESIDENT!
Over four columns of page two are devoted to the “REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION” meeting in Philadelphia. “The first Republican convention in history, meeting in Philadelphia, chooses Colonel Fremont, a former California Senator, for President, and William L. Dayton of New Jersey for Vice-President.” There are complete details of the nominations and balloting statistics. Abraham Lincoln came in second for Vice President (I hadn’t known this fact). This newspaper strongly endorses the Republican ticket.
