A Bold Undertaking

Title

A Bold Undertaking

Subject

Elections

Description

Union Flag editor Reed then surmises that perhaps Gov. Wallace will establish the seat of Washington Territory's government at Victoria [BC], because Wallace does not favor Vancouver, Olympia, or any other location within the territory.

It may be that the Washington Standard meant to write "Victory" instead of "Victoria." Regardless, Editor Reed took advantage of the situation to criticize Gov. William H. Wallace, the Republican nominee for Delegate to Congress.

Abstract

This article quotes the [Washington] Standard newspaper as writing:
"Stand by your candidate and the platform adopted by your Convention. The results are worth striving for; they are 'Union and Liberty. Wallace and Victoria'."
