Wool Season Opens.
The new wool season is getting un
der way in the Yakima country, where
shearing has started.
The few sales
already made, which range in price up
to 27 cents, are in line with quotations
elsewhere for this class of wool.
Shearing w ill not begin in Eastern
Oregon until about the middle of next
month, and in the meantime it is not
thought that much business can be put
through, as buyers and sellers are
apart in most sections. Isidor Kosh-
land, of Portland, has contracted for
60,000 fleeces in Baker county at 20 to
21 cents, and also secured 10,000
fleeces at Condon. This and the Stan
field sale already reported is the ex<
tent o f the business done in Oregon to
date. There has not been as much
contracting to date in Western Idaho.
The London market continues irreg
ular, and for this reason the feeling in
the trade is still rather nervous.
Fine reports are received from the
first lambings east of the mountains,
there being practically no loss.
More than 80 per cent of the wool
clip of Utah has been contracted by
buyers from Eastern houses and prices
paid for 11,200,000 pounds under con
tract range from 21 to 28 cents, ac
