Trade during the. week has been fair.
Among our most enterprising firms is
that of Booth. Foss 5.: Borst..whu a're
shipping Bacon, Hams. 910.. direct from
Kansas City. In purchasing from first
hands for cash they can uudersell all
others in their line. Their business is
rapidly increasing. .
We. notice a marked improvement in
our wholesale Liquor trade, many of the
retail dealers purchasing. here instead of
ordering from traveling Agents as here
tofore. Our wholesale liquor dealers.
J. R. Robbins. Crawford & Harrington,
Stone & Burnett and Schwubucher Bros.
& Cm. keep on bond large. and well se
lected stocks bought at the lowest cash
prices, and can afford to sell at. lower
rates than homes employing traveling
salesmen at a heavy expense.
The Seattle Coal Company shipped
660 tons of coal during the week per
bark Scotland.
The reported progress of the N. P. R.
R. is mosh-beefing, truck laying is pro
gressing at the rate of two miles per
day in Dncotn. Itis expected that the 65
miles from Kahuna will be completed
and cars running by the first of Novem
ber. and by the first. of January next
517 miles of the main line will be in
operation fijom Duluth Minn.
The Puget Sound Banking Company
have completed arrangements for the
dnwing of Bills of Exchange on the
London House of Jay Cooke, McCul
langh 8: CO., available all over Ireland
and the Continent. This will be found to
be u great convenience for persons on
the Sound wishing to send money home
to their friends in the old country.
