Eastern Buyers Think Tariff
Change Will Affect Market.
MAY DELAY CONTRACTING
Dealers Want the Matter Settled So
Thejr Will Know What to Pay,
Matter of Great Interest to the
Flockmasters of Oregon.
Political conditions will play an Impor
tant part in the Oregon wool market next
Spring. Expecting a change In the tariff.
the dealers are already figuring on buying
the new clip on a lower basis. The re
markable cleanup of old stocks cuts no fig
nre In the situation. according to their
iews. Whether or not these things will
happen. It is likely the market before
shearing time will not be active. Buyers
w ill not be disposed to enter Into contracts
until they know what Congress will do with
Commenting on the new clip outlook, the
Boston Transcript says:
"Naturally the political situation, parties
larly the likelihood of a special session of
Congress being called immediately after
the Inauguration of the new Administra
tion. March , attracts considerable atten
tlnn. As the stocks of old wools in this
market - diminish, dealers are paying more
attention to the possibility of buying the
clip of 201.1 on a reasonable basis. In view
of the tariff oatlook, the prices must be
considerably lower than those of last year.
80 the wool trade feels that, as some
change in the tariff appears to be assured,
the sooner the extent of the changes is
known the better It will be for their In
trrests. "While some faith is placed In the
good intentions of the President-elect, less
confidence is felt in the radical Democratic
leaders, who appear to be In full control In
"Leading factors, therefore, feel that It
would be of advantage if the tariff question
should be considered at a special session
called for that purpose. One advantage
would be the aid It would afford In getting
primary markets adjusted to the changed
conditions. The buying of the domestic
wool clip on the right basis Is a matter of
tremendous importance to Boston's trade.
Owing to the uncertainty, there Is likely to
be less contracting of the new-clip wool
than for a number of years.'

COOS RECORDER IS CHARY
Official Refuses to Register AVomen
on Authority of Olcott.
MARSHFIELD. Or., Nov. 20. (Spe
cial.) Women are t vote at the city
election which will be held in Decem
ber, when a City Recorder, Councilmen
and several other officers are to be se
lected. Mrs. A. H. Stutsman, a local
real estate dealer, took the initiative
and applied to City Recorder Butler to
be registered. The City Attorney was
out of the city and the Recorder re
fused to register a woman voter until
e had the opinion of the Attorney as
to whether or not it would be legal at
Mrs. Stutsman then telegraphed to
the Secretary of State, who wired back
that the woman suffrage measure was
In effect and that the women could be
registered. Armed with the telegram
and backed by a dozen other women of
the city, Mrs. Stutsman again applied
to the City Recorder, but was again re
fused on the ground that he could not
act without first hearing from the City
Attorney. The latter returned to the
lty and gave ais c pinion that the
women could be registered.
The women -who are most enthusi
astic are urging their indifferent sis
ters to register and it is likely that
quite a number of .o Marshfield women
will have a voice in the selection of the
city officials next month.
