The market for all kinds of leather, as
well aa hides, continues weak and prices
seem to bo m the process of adjustment to
the new conditions. The boom brought
about by large purchases of leather by Euro.
pean governments during the latter part
of lust year has passed. During the lata
Fall and early Winter months, largo con
tracts were made in the United States by
several of the European governments for
many different varieties of leather goods
suitable for military use, and there was tlso
unusually heavy buying of leather by Indi
viduals abroad, especially those located in
Great Britain. Thia great Increase in for
eign trade caused such, demand for certain
lines of leather, particularly heary shoe
upper, strap, bag. collar, saddlery skirting
and harness, that prices advanced to a point
almost beyond the reach of domeetlc users,
and now that the foreign inquiry has prac
tically ceased tanners are commencing to
realise that unless there Is a resumption of
European buying on an extensive scale val
ues must return to a more normal level.
Along with the rapid advance in leather
hide prices rose in proportion and tanners
fear that on the downward swing of the
market material losses will have to be sus
tained on hides worked up at the high
prh es. During the past five or six weeks
. American hide prices have declined from
2c to 2,4c, but that tanners consider the
market as still too high is evidenced by
the fact that only small scattering sales
Of late thero has been some trouble re-
gardJiig; deliveries of leather military equip
ment to Great Britain on contracts made
late !ftt year and numerous shipments from
Western factories of these goods have been
rejected by the English government agents
in New York, despite the fact that they had
been passed by factory inspectors appointed
by the British govemraei U
Buying for European account is probably
not at an end but it is doubtful If the high
prices of last Tln ter are restored. Dun's
Review believes that if the war in Europe
is to continue for any length of time there
can bo no doubt but that American leather
will bo needed for army shoes and other
military equipment, but that there will be
any such scramble or any such prices paid
as was the case during tho early stages of
the conflict is extremely doubtful. Most of
the European belligerents are In a more
favorable position now to produce a good
part of their supplies than was the case
formerly and the different countries have
also made better arrangements for buying
abroad. Go-betweens and fat commissions
have been largely eliminated and in most
cases responsible parties have been ap
pointed as agents who are In a position to
see not only that the buyers receive the
right quality and kind of goods they desire,
but that prices will not be on an extrava
gant basis. v

"A number of problems that have hitherto

ARGENTINE WOOL PRICES ARE RECORD
This Tear's Clip ef Republic Mill Produce
According to La Prensa of Buenos Aires
the 1015 wool clip of Argentina will yield
85,000 bales, which, if current prices are
obtained, will produce $19,000,000 United
States currency. Never In the business his
tory of these countries has wool realized
such high prices as are now being paid,
due entirely to the urgent need for this raw
material in certain of the countries engaged
in tlve war in Europe. Although this year
the wool dtp Is less In quantity than last
year, its greater value compensates tor this
shrinkage, so that the proceeds should
amount to about the same as last year's.
The highest price paid for wool in the
Sydney market this season was established
yesterday, says the Sydney Herald of Feb
ruary IS, when 15 shillings 3J cents)
per pound was realized for six bales of
crossbred. Merino wool usually takes pride
of place In quality, quantity and price, but
