bring the wool grower $1 75 If I
remember correctly, your wool laat
year sold at i cents per pound,
and If you use 10 pounds of thia
wool In making a suit, the wool In
the suit would only have amounted
to $1.(5. Therefore, the talk of
cheaper clothing because of free wool
In nonsense, and moat people here
recognise that It ia nonaenae. Any
way, the people do not wear raw
wool. Clothing la made out of fin
in d cloth, and these democrats have
not put cloth on the free list. In
the new democratic bill the duty on
cloth made out of wool or mohair
rangea from 36 to 50 per cent; If
