Title

Insobriety of our Nominee

Subject

Politics and government

Description

"Mr. Saunders applied to several clergymen to know as to the facts, and finally applied to the Rev. G. F. Whitworth. His reply was-- 'I do not think that Governor Stevens has been indulging in anything that would intoxicate, for a long time past."
The editor concludes, " Need we state who the lawyer is that is suspected of this dastardly game to defeat our nominee for delegate to Congress. It is hardly necessary to state it is Elwood Evans, Esq., the republican nominee for a seat in the Legislature from Thurston county."

Abstract

The Pioneer and Democrat responds to an article from the "Washington Republican" newspaper questioning the sobriety of a Democratic candidate for Congress, Governor Stevens.
