Another Letter from Puget Sound: Legislative Doings
Politics and government
The Legislature's offices were still not complete. The Public Printer position is being linked with the issues of the move of the capitol, the division of the Territory, and the relocation of the Penitentiary. On the 180th ballot the Territorial Council finally elected a Sergeant-at-Arms. Governor Pickering sent a message declaring the office of Public Printer vacant. He appointed a temporary replacement. Seven candidates then applied.
A report on legislative bumbling, referring to appointment of a Public Printer, moving of the capitol, the division of the Territory, and the relocation of the Penitentiary.
