Pu’GET SOUND ARGUS.
OFFICIAL PAPER or JEFFERSON co
. FRIDAY. smvr. 10 IM.
IT IS BRENTS AGAIN.
The Republican L‘onvenii in at
Vancoiiwr,on leneminy, on ihu‘
first lmllui. nominated -lon. 'l‘hm.‘
H. lirunts for Delegate to Congress. l
Mr. Allen withdrew his mum», it is!
‘ITCSUIHCJ under all arrangement. by
which his supporters went. for the
successful aspirant. This left hut
two names hel'orn the convention,‘
\‘iz: lion. 'l‘. H. Drums and Dr. T
'l‘. Minor, 01 Port 'l'uwneeud. The
vote stood: 131-nuts, 62; Minor, 28.
The laiicr immediately moved to
make the nomination unanimous,
which was done.
Mr. Bronte was elected last time
by a very large majority, and, his
active,'aensible course as our Dele—
gate will secure his election against
any man the Democrats may put up.
Other candidates have been nomi—
nated, as follows: Brigadier Gen
eral of W. 'l‘. militia, Geo. W. Tib
l\etta, of King 00.; Adjutant Gen
eral, M. R. Hathaway, of Clarke Co;
Quartermaster General, R. G. o’-
Brien,o{ Thurston 00.; Commissary
‘ General, A. K. Bush, of Pacific 00.
As to Delegate, of course we feel
disappointed in the (allure of Puget
s9!in to more the nomination!
But if the man is to be from eastern
Washington, we greatly prefer Mr.
Brents. The Seattle “Intelligencer”
says of him very truthfully: “There
is something about him that makes
him warm’friends, and that retain:
them once made. He is a rustler of
the most active and efficient charac
ter. Whoever is against him has
got to be up; ”fly, and be up long
and late, to carry his point.” Puget
Sound will undoubtedly roll up. as
large majority for him as it did last
time.

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
“'.unwrron. l). U. August 27.1 w). l
The Democrats of \Vas‘hingtolt
ratified last night. The display of
fireworks was quite imposing. Three
thousand dollars would hardly meet
the expense tor them. The mounted
men from Virginia were quite 3 fea
ture in the crowd, but when it be
came known they were a detachment
of the “Black horse Cavalry” of
Virginia, thoughts of Turner Ash
ley’s raids, and of the fate of Baker,
of \Vinthrop and other martyrs on
the other side of the Potomac stirred
up strong feelings in loyai breasts.‘
Their presence made men recall the ‘
time when the “black horse” at
tempted to wave the “store and bars”
over the Capitol. They failed then,
but were eueceeéful last night.
There were too many one-legged
and one-armed maimed veierene
among the spectators to relish such
an unwise and reckless exhibition of
defiant treason.
When Mr. English, the Demo—
cratic candidate for Vice President,
was a clerk in the Treasury depart
ment under the administration of
James K. Polls, he was in the con
stant habit of loaning money to
clerks and others at from three to
ten per cent. per month; or from
36 to 120 per cent. per annum; and
when he became a member of Con
gress he continued that practice of
loaning money at usurious interest
in Washington. The business env
tered into thirty five .years ago of
loaning money at such rates of inter
est as to double his gains in from
one to three years would seem to
have been successfully followed
through a long life.
John M. Langston, Minister to
Hsyti, has arrived, and after spend
ingefew days visiting among his
friends, will devote .two months to
delivering speeches to the colored
voters in various places throughout
the country. Hewill speak in Mary
land, Indiana, Ohio, and wherever
else his services are required.
Fred Douglas leaves for Indiana
on Monday 30th, to canvass the prin
cipal towns of that State. His heart
is in the present struggle, believing
as he does that this is the great crisis
which will determine. the future of
the colored race.
Ear2y in December next the much
disputed question es to the distribu
tion of the remainder of the Geneva
Award fund will come up for final
settlement in Congress. This sub
ject has occupied a portion of Con
gressional attention at every session
since 1874. The persons new claim
ing recognition and payment are
those who sufi'ered from loss of ships
not included in the law of 1874, and
who paid heavy wnr risks, or premi
ums to the. Insurince Companies.
The Insurance Compnnies, also claim
a portion of the money, and they
have. in the past, worked hard to ob
tain Congressional legislation in
their favor. But the sentiment in
Congress seems to be against these
corporations who fattened upon the
necessities of our commerce, and in
favor of those whose devotion to the
flag, and their determination to
mnintnin its honor upon the high
seas, caused them the loss of their
property by the Confederate cruisers.

Tun: steamship Idaho, Capt. Alex
ander, left this pogfor San Francis
co yesterday. This boat hts without
doubt the finest accommodations and
the most elegant appointments ever
offered to the traveling public by
any vessel running on the route.
Besides this, the gratifying part of
the matter is that the tasty and ar
[isllc fitting up of the vessel will
meet with a hearty and substantial
appreciation on the part of the trav
eling public. With such worthy
passenger boats as this one, and
with the genial, rustling Capt. Tib
bals for agent, the Pacific Coast
Steamship Company need have no
tears of failure in securing a hand
lOme trade. Read their advertise
ment elsewhere.
A mm. in Justice’ court in town
this week demonstrated new the
old saying: “A fool and his money
soon parted.” An lelsnd county
mnldoon came to town--“i'or to see
the houses,” we presume. While
here he developed his proclivitiee for
taking astronomical views through
the bottom of e whiskey glue. Af
ter considerable experience of this
kind, his plentiful luppiy of coin
vanished whither “the woodbine
twineth.” The fellow now says
somebody stole it. and wants to col
lect it by law.
So President Hayes is coming out
to see us! If he could only have
possessed his soul in patience t lit.
tle longer, we might. have gone Eut
tome him. But. then he probably
becanw. too nnxioua to wait with thy
degree of comfort.
