A Bolter

Title

A Bolter

Subject

Democratic Party (U.S.)

Description

The editor comments that he hopes that this report is a mistake, and that Democrats should "see to it that no 'bolter' receives an office by democratic votes." He is essentially encouraging Thurston County Democrats to vote against Frankel.

The man referred to is likely Abraham Frankel, who came to Washington Territory from Macon, Georgia, and was a member of the Olympia Masonic Lodge. This reader could find no record of his political party affiliation. (Source: www.freemason-wa.org)
