Hon. Charles Hv Harding of Fhiiaaei
phla, president of the National Associa
tion of Woolen Manufacturers, delivered
the opening address of the afternoon
session. He chose as his subject "Points
of Mutual Interest Between the Wool
grower and the Manufacturer." Pre
liminary to his formal address ha mad
a; number of witty remarks which were
well received. A number of the salient
pelnts covered In - Mr. Harding's ad
dress, which was quite lengthy, are as
follows; , . , , .
v' .' President Hardlng'B Address.
v We believe in taxing foreign pro
ductions for the raising of revenue for
the general government, to a point that
will cover the difference in cost between
the article produced ' abroad and its
equivalent produced here, so a to main
tain our American standards of wages
and living, and to encourage the com
plete dpmestlo supply of all the neces
saries bf life; and we believe this prin
ciple should be applied equally to articles
grown and made, without any t discrimi
nation for either against the 'other. -
Preparing Wool for Market. ,
"When first I began to handle wool
for combing purposes, the rule was care
fully observed, that whatever came off
a sheen Jn handling htm under the shears
must be wrapped in the fleece and go to
market with it. - It is not to the rigid
enforcement of this principle, but rather
to accident that I attribute the thou
sands of'Hnds"Jthat have come to no
tice in opening fleeces unwashed pieces
: from washed fleeces, and frequently of
entirely different quality, old shoes, over-
: alls, brickbats, pieces of old " harness,
cobblestones, shears and cowbells. The
principle stlU seems to obtain that
fleeces must be so put up that they
shall carry the sheep's whole wardrobe,
and perhaps some of his surroundings.
In-fact, we are on the level of the grow
ers of Morocco, Thibet, Turkey and,
r ChlnaVith one exception. The value
, of wool, from a manufacturer's stand
point, Is the worth, for his purpose, of
a-sooured pound 'of the article he uses;
what he must pay for' the pound in
the grease is a secondary matter. And
this raises a most Important question
as to what can be done, at the placa of
shearing, in the way of classifying wool
for market, if. Indeed, you can do any
thing in this country. It has been sug
gested that we examine the method in
use in Australia, which has also been
adopted in South America, without being
there carried into such minute detail.
The governing principle is, that che
average price - realised for a properly
classified cliD is always more than the
price it would bring in bulk, plus the
cost of classing at the shearing floor."
During the progress of his address,
Mr. Harding exhibited numerous sam
ples of woolen material . and twine in
illustration of his, remarks. As - he
started to test a sample for cotton adul
teration, he used a match. A voice from
the audience inquired:
. "lKn we git eoutr ' '
"To which Mr. Handing replied that
he did not intend to endanger the lives
of those clothed in cotton.
ferry Simpson to the staff.
President' Warren,? spying the famous
Jerry Simpson, formerly of Kansas but
now of New Mexico, invited him to the
stage. Mr. Simpson acquiesced, and was
greeted with a vigorous hand-clapping,
. John B. McPherson, secretary of the
National Association of Wool Manufac
turers, was then introduced, and spoke
on "Facts About Shoddy." A few of
the points covered by him were these:
- "My opinion is no nation can be great
which has to depend upon a foreign na
tion for Its raw material. I know that
shoddy Is an unpopular subject Popular
impression la that it is a cheap and
- worthless stuff that it is the antithesis
.of pure wool,-and that it comes from
the pestilence-laden districts of Europe.
I will try to discuss the process through
which the rage are put. t
How Shoddy Is Made. ;'.
"The rag are washed in vitriol; then
they are placed in a room at 210 de
grees of heat. They are dried and ren
dered absolutely clean. They then pas
through certain macMnes. ; By this time,
if thre were any disease erms in the
rags crlglnaliy, they become pure wool.
The samples I have came from carpeta
or women's dress goods."
; Here he exhibited the various kinds
of shoddy, with the grades and - prices
of each. These were distributed through
the audience. v . v
' Suppose you' asked a '.retailer for a
suic of clothes, 75 per cent pure wool and
25 per cent shoddy," he continued. "You
would suppose this better than one con
taining more shoddy, but this does not
necessarily follow, because in the lat
ter case the shoddy may. be of a higher
grade. Wool Is indestructible, and tests
applicable to detect oleo. in butter would
not apply to test shoddy. 1 No chemical
test or microscopic test can distinguish
old, or shoddy, wool, from the new wool.
Wool ; ls, always, wool, i V '
' "Americans :. have been accused ; of
wastefulness of throwing away too
much. Shoddy was first used in Eng
land In 1816.: In 1862. 65.000,000 pounds
were used in that country. No coun
try's output of shoddy approaches it.
In 1901 England's Importation of for
eign wools amounted to 102,O00,pQ0
pounds.' ' ,
Dingley Tariff An Injury. -
'The' Dingley . tariff act has discour
aged importations. ' No ' product have
Buffered so much in this' country - as
wool and its products. ' . C : : . . ' '
"We welcome , this . opportunity of
harmonizing by co-operating the Inter
ests of the woolgrower and the manu
facturer. We are here to smoke the
calumet of peace. .We are united In .the
bonds of mutual Interest." r, V .'
' . ' ' The Mutton Sheep. .
"Mutton ' Sheep as Viewed From the
Leading Markets," was next discussed.
A. C.' Halll welHof Chicago was the first
speaker. He spoke of the average price
of sheep and lambs in Chicago during
the past yeari . "A fly in the ointment
for the sheepman,", he said, "is the de
lay caused in shipments by the rail
roads. Central Illinois is becoming in
terested in raising range sheep, its stock
finding a market as far east as the Hud
son river,' Corn and hay are to be de
pended upon "to; feed sheep in the' fu
ture." , :
E.-D. Downs, president off the traders'
exchange at Kansas City, fbllowed. He
declared it is unlikely that so prosper
ous a year will 'soon occur as that of
1903. He gave some convincing figures.
The prices .were paid while the cattle
market was declining.
The demand for mutton is on the in
crease, he said, but the prices In 1904
will not likely reach those of last year.
The business of the Kansas City stock
yards have shown a tremendous Increase
In sheep receipts for every decade since
1871, when they were established.
M. B. Irwln .of St Joseph waa the
third speaker. Referring to the much
coveted St. Joseph- bad ges a - tiny
sombrero with a rabbit foot attachment
he said they were peculiarly fortunate
for the ladles to possess during 1904
a leap year. He declared that the de
mand for sheep is increasing, and con
sidered that sheepmen had had a better
chance than the raisers of hogs and
cattle. ' . ,
E. S. Gosney of Arizona' spoke on the
shoddy bill, as he was a member of the
committee that prepared it. He - ex
pressed himself as pleased at the frank
ness ?nd candor with which Mr. Harding
and Mr. McPherson had torn apart the
bill. He said he should not have re
plied if Mr. Harding had not said the
object of the bill 1 to attack the manu
facturer. He agreed with Mr. Harding
in the production of honest goods. He
believed, the bill would benefit all the
grower, the manufacturer and the con
sumer. , , -. ',.;.".'
" ' y: Jerry Simpson Talks.
Then. came the event for which all
were waiting Jerry Simpson's initial
speech in Oregon. . He said: "At first

I feared I'd be ruled out I'm a cattle
man, and there was a time when the cat
tlemen and sheepmen didn't agree,, but
happily that time is past . forever, I
hope. . ... - - . . .
, "As I bounded over the western plains
toward Portland and finally got into the
mountains, I noticed that the railroads
have a habit of running "through van
yons. I don't like that, because I want
to see things.- The farther west I came
the more Impressed I became, that we've
got , the biggest country on earth. In
the gray dawn this morning we rolled
into Oregon. 4 As I looked out of the car
window I saw what I took to be grass
growing on everything even the rocks.
It seemed such a beautiful . green and
when I .asked about it someone . said,
you big fool, that's moss.' ' .
: "Do " you know," he continued, "as I
get older' I'm" getting mighty careful
how I speak out the truth. I'm 61 years
old, but you wouldn't believe it, would
you? And I'm married and still have
my ,halr. I was born in' New- Bruns

Jerry, "over there somewhere .back of
Maine, where they have to pry the sun
up with a crowbar in ; the morning.
Wheir I was 8 years old my folks

tend' to go clear through to the ocean,
for I've always wanted to see the ma
lestio Pacific. . It never would do for
me to go home without doing this, for I
want to see where the West ends. .
- Mr. SlmDSon expressed a retrospective
view of the wonderful progress of the
United State since his birth, and hardly
dared to prophesy what it would ds in
another 81 years. ' - i

United States. Slow in growth, yet ha
said the mohair clip was making it

said, is the greatest wearing fabric
known. It will outwear any other ana
its popularity is steadily increasing. .
The i committee on resolution - re-
norted a number of resolutions. One
favored the congressional mil proviaing
for the exchange of private for public
lands. Another urged the maintenance
of the bureau of plant investigation,
nrevtously endorsed by the convention.
A third related to the discrimination of
stockyards against sheep in yardage
rates, and asked for a reduction of the
same, xnese were aaopiea. ,
A resolution favoring the equal dis
tribution by the government of mutton
and . beef to the army and the Indians
passed. A resolution was presented
asking that the secretary decide upon
a - uniform county on coyotes ana . xa
pave the way for it adoption in certain
of the Western states.
The appointment of committees or
three from the Woolgrowers', Livestock
and Manufacturers' association was
embraced in a resolution passed. Tnese
committees will confer upon a suitable
substitute for the shoddy bill. Appoint
ments for this purpose were maae, as
follows: F. J. Hagenbarth, Idaho, for
the woolgrowers: Jesse M. Smith, Utah,
and E. S. Gosney, Arlxona, representing
the other associations, respectively.
Thank to Vortland,
Resolutions of thanks to the people of
Portland and the state for the hospitable
reception to their visitor and to the
press for printed reports of the doing
of the convention were adopted.
President Warren Beeleoted.
Senator Warren wa the only candi
date for the presidency, and was Unan
imously reelected to that office. Two
candidates for the vice-presidency were
nominated. These were Jesse M. Smith
of Utah and George Truesdell of Mary
land. Since the desire of the convention
was in favor of both, the constitution
was amended so as to provide for two
vice-president, and both were declared
elected. , ' ' - ' '

tion. This terminated tne session ana
President Warren then declared the
convention adjourned sine; die. .
TICKET WINDOW'S '
That Portland has been growing Is
evident to all. Decisive evidence of th
fact is the total receipt at the Union
depot passenger window. In December,
1902, the recepit were $77,000. In De
cember, 1002, the figure reached 189,000

18 per cent in one year.'

is not alone to do his duty as delegate,
but to use his utmost jendeavors to ad

. Speaking of the Angora goat industry,
Mr. Fulton said: - '
"It is not to be wondered at that so

The mohair of the Northwestern
states Is equal to the mohair of Turkey.
Three pelts, one from Oregon, tne others
from Montana and Washington, that

from the Turkish pelts when exhibited
side by side.'
"Inasmuch as o little has been Known
