The Hon. D. B. Harrell, of the Twelfth District, moved that the Convention proceed to a permanent organization, which motion prevailed.

Hon. A. R. Lawton, of the First District, nominated Hon. Charles J. Jenkins, of the Eighteenth District, for permanent President, and moved his election by acclamation, which motion prevailed.

When so appointed, the Secretary shall give bond in such sum, and on such condition, for the faithful performance of his duties, as may be prescribed by the said committee.

Resolved further, That until said committee shall have concluded the contract herein contemplated, the temporary Secretary be requested to continue in the discharge of the duties of Secretary, and have all necessary clerical labor performed, whose compensation therefor shall be fixed by the said committee.
