Description

The author, "D," writes that Murphy "thinks republicanism pays best, and presto! he is an ardent republican." He argues that Murphy was once a Democrat, and has become a Republican because of the changing opportunities of administration patronage.

Abstract

This letter to the editor of the Union Flag accuses John Miller Murphy, editor of the Olympia-based Washington Standard newspaper, of being a man "whose political sentiments are a purchaseable [sic] commodity." Therefore, the citizens of Washington Territory cannot rely on Murphy's editorials.
