[Puget Sound] Herald Falsehoods

Subject

Elections

Description

Specifically, Reed states that the Herald's charge that Garfielde withheld fees he collected is untrue. Lkewise, the claim that he has never established a residence in Washington Territory is false; he and his family reside in a house in Port Townsend. Editor Reed accuses the Republicans of paying a man to make these false charges.

Editor Reed grumbles that "it is humiliating to be compelled to notice such vile, ribald, disgusting and libelous attacks."

Selucius Garfielde was the Democratic candidate for Delegate to Congress from Washington Territory.
