Argue was born in Ireland, and received a grammar school education. He worked as a farmer after moving in Manitoba, and served for fifteen years as a local reeve and councillor. In religion, he was a member of the Church of England.
He was first elected to the Manitoba legislature in the 1899 provincial election, defeating Liberal incumbent Thomas Dickey by seventy-seven votes in the Avondale constituency. The Conservatives won this election, and Argue served in the legislature as a government backbencher. He was re-elected in the campaigns of 1903, 1907 and 1910, and did not seek re-election in 1914.
