Uncertainty Still Declared to
Market at Boston.
BOSTON. Mass., July SO. The Commer
cial Bulletin tomorrow will say:
"Uncertainty still reigns in the wool
market and values are hardly more than
nominal. Everyone is watching the goods
market, which Is revealing little at the
moment. Sales of wool have been few and
small. The foreign primary markets are
unrhanged and little or nothing new is
reported from the west, practically all
business being on consignments. Mohair
is dull and nominal."
