PORTLAND STOCK MARKET.
Portland, July 23 -Receipt* at this
market for the week ending today have
been: Cattle 1692, sheep 3426, hogs
1437. horses and mules 19.
The cattle market has been strong to
higher and there has been a snappy de
mand for every hoof that showed good
quality. Extra good steers have sold
for $6 per 100 pounds, and as has been
repeatedly stated, the difference between
poor and good quality is steadily grow
ing gieater. Packers and butchers who
buy here find that the higher priced
cattle are the cheapest in the end and
that thin cattle are a poor purchase at
The sheep market has not recovered
from the demoralization of last week.
Good lambs have sold high and good
quality yearling wethers have brought a
fair price, but as a whole the market on
sheep is not strong.
An advance of a nickel on hogs has
been a feature in that division. Good
quality top hogs have sold at $10 30,
which is about the highest price since the
early days of May.

ful. We are glad to state that the
Home is progressing nicely. We now
have nearly 40 children in the Home,
and during the last 11 months we have
placed 75 children in good homes.

NORTHWEST FOR BURKE
Port Townsend Paper Reflects
Sentiment of Section.
That the Northwestern counties of
Washington are overwhelmingly in favor
of the election of Judge Thomas Burke
to the Uuited States senate is the con
clusion reached by the Port Townsend
Leader, the only daily and by far the
most influential newspaper on the west
side of Paget Sound. The Leader has
been watching the progress of various
candidates in the section where it circu
lates and has awaited the crystallization
of sentiment. In a strong editorial it
declares emphatically in favor of Burke.
Here is what the Leader says:
The Logical Candidate.
The campaign for the republican nom
ination for Uuited States senator has
reached that stage when any newspwper
that pretends to influence or to refl-ct
the sentiment of its readers and of the
community in which it is published tnny
properly make declaration of a choice
among the various candidates. The
Leader has been in no haste to proffer
supimrt. It hus preferred to await the
gradual crystallization of sentiment in
this city and throughout the country
where it is most read. The belief has
rapidly gained ground and is now aa
absolute conviction that the choice of the
very great majority of the voters in
Port Townsend and vicinity is fixed on
Judge Thomas Burke.
There is no symptom of radical insurg
ency in Jefferson county nor anywhere
on the west side of the Sound, so far as
can be ascertained. Congressman Poin
dexter is personally unknown here, but
his attitude of constant hostility to the
administration and to the republican
party is generally condemned. Jefferson
has always beeu a republican county;
remaining firm through the stress of the
free silver agitation of 1896. The county
is just as loyal today, but its loyalty is
not necessarily the stand pat or reac
tionary type. In his platform Judge
Burke declares that " the republican
party is the party of progress." This is
true, but there can be no progress in
standing still, and much leea in a rever
sion to an old and corrupt order of
things. It should be and is possible to
get out of a rut without having a revo
lution. Judge Burke is neither a reac
tionary nor a revolutionist. His per
sonal history and public utterances prove
him to be a "progressive' in the truest
sense of the term. Tbe state has had
few opportunities to secure the service in
congress of such a man. There is no
doubt that his home city and county are
solidly lined up in his support and from
all parts of the state come evidences of
his growing strength.
On one point the Leader knows that
it voices the unanimous opinion in this
and other Northwestern counties: The
successor to Senator Piles must be a
west side mau Judge Burke, General
Asbtcn and Ex-Senator Wilson are the
only candidates worthy of consideration.
To none of them is this section of the
state under the slightest obligation. But
looking to the future it cannot be dis
puted that the greater possibility of
permanent benefit to our city, our county
and our state lies in the election of

Cannot Flush River.
The Paiouse river is lower than in
many years past and the stagnant water,
which hae turned a deep green, is becom
ing offensive, and ia in all probability a
menace to the health of persons living
close to the stream. It haa been talked
recently that the Potlatch Lumber com
pany might better the condition by I
opeoing the gates of the Potlatch dam
and flushing the river. The Republic
took the matter up with A. W. Laird
Wednesday over the long distance tele
phone and secured the information that
the dam bad been emptied two weeks '
ago and the river flushed out as far as
possible, but with little good resulting. !
Mr. Laird advised that there is so little '
water runniDg that it would be imposui
ble to accomplish anything in the way
of cleaning the stream out. It is pre
dieted that the Paiouse river will be dried
up entirely by September if the dry
weather should continue.—Paiouse Pie
