"Nominal" Support

Title

"Nominal" Support

Subject

Politics and government

Description

William McLane (Republican) and James Longmire (Democrat) ran against each other in the January 1868 Territorial Council election. William McLane won and went on to represent Thurston and Lewis County. The Daily Tribune ran a series of articles about the election, see #355 – Another Smart Copperhead Dodge, #354 – The Election, #231 – Soreheads, #230 – Promises, #229 – The Election of Councilman, #227 - "Nominal" Support, #225 - New Election.

Abstract

The Daily Tribune has been accused of not being as "decidedly Union" as it should be, because it doesn't mention Legislative candidate McLane's name often enough. The editor calls the charge frivolous and confirms it is a Union journal.
