The Speaking in Whatcom County

Subject

Politics and government

Description

This Republican paper says Garfielde (Democrat) and Lander (Independent Unionist Democrat) were evasive in their public speeches, saying they would support what the Administration did if they agreed with it. Wallace's stand-in offered unqualified support for the proposal that force must be used to retain the border states..

On p. 2, "Arrival of Gov. Wallace," reports that Wallace has returned to Washington Territory.

Abstract

Candidates for territorial delegate (Garfielde, Lander and the stand-in for Wallace) are asked: If the Border states secede, will you support the Administration in forcing them back in? Republican editor John Miller Murphy describes their answers to this hypothetical question as either evasive and suspicious (Lander, Garfielde) or forthright and patriotic (Wallace's stand-in).
