Washington Standard

P. B. Van Trump, who can date reasonably far back as a pioneer of our city-say nearly forty years-who for a couple or more decades now was the “Nasby” of Yelm, now residing in Seattle, visited his old time home last Saturday, and found a few friends remaining, who knew him in the days of yore, when the “Merry Bachelors” club controlled all social events, and society itself had not become so ennobled as to require separation of the goats from the sheep.  Mr. Van Trump attained fame in his more youthful days be ascending Mount Rainier with the first party that succeeded in the venturesome attempt, the party under Gen. Hazard Stevens, who remained in the warm cave on the summit over night.
