"It is immaterial, in my judgment,
wliether the xheep grower receives any ben
efit from the tariff or not.
Whether he does or does not, I ant for
free wool." Extract from speech of Wil
liam J. Bryan in the house of representa
tives when the Wilson bill was under con
sideration. A BROKER'S VIEWS.
The semi-annual report of Jacob
Wollucr, wool broker and commis
sion merchant of San Francisco, after
detailing the demoralized condition
of the market, so far departed from
the usual trade comments, as to add
the following significant statements:
For four or five days after Mc
Kinley's nomination, it seemed as if
-confidence had been restored and
there was more looking around for
mooI, but the Chicago Democratic
Convention and the platform the3
adopted with the nominations they
made, was like a wet blanket thrown
over all trade aud manufactures, es
pecially for wool, and the endorse
ment of their nominee by the Popu
lists, Anarchists, Socialists and free
silveritcs paralized the whole trade
-. of the country.
We have no hope for better times
until the presidential election is over,
and we can only hope that sound
money and protection will prevail.
The boast of the Democratic ora
tors and politicians four years ago,
that with free wool manufacturers
would enlarge their trade and the
. sheepmen would realize more for
their wool under tree wool, has not
materialized. On August 1, 1892,
just four years ago, the "American
"Wool and Cotton Reporter," the
leading exponent of textile manu
facturing, sheep husbandry, and the
the American cloth and clothing
. trade, said : "There has never been
a time in the history of this country
that so much woolen machinery has
been so well employed as it is at
present." July 30th of this year,
the same paper says : ."The past
tour weeks have been characterized
by extreme dullness in the wool
trader The transactions have been
the smallest ever reported, and not
30 per ceni of the woolen mills in
tlie whole United States are actively
The"" reason the importation of
wool in 1894 was so small was owing
to 'the delay in the passage of the
Wilson-Gorman tariff bill. " Besides,
since the passage of the fiee wool
"bill, the larger importation of ..wool,
.shoddies, waste, rags, etc., has
78 Second Street.
amounted to $20,000,000 yearly.
This is owing to the fact that Euro
pean manufacturers have flooded the
country with cheap goods, in the
manufacture of which, although wool
is so low, a good deal of shoddies,
waste and rags have been used, and
our manufacturers in self preserva
tion had to follow the. example, and
therefore the inferior articles took
the place of at least 60,000,000
The importation of manufactured
goods, which in 1892 amounted to
$35,000,000 is reported for the fiscal
year ending June 30, 1896, at $57,
559,923, and then it has to be taken
into consideration that imported
goods in 1892 were nearly 50 per
cent higher in valuation than in
1896, as then only high priced goods
were imported, while now all kinds
of trash is admitted to the country
in consequence of the low tariff, an. 1
so instead of. manufacturers being
benefitted by free wool, they not
only could not export manufactured
goods, but lost over $30,000,000 in
The outlook for prices, and trade
for stock still on hand, and also for
fall wool, is very gloomy. Over
200,000 pounds of wool in the east
ern markets, and nearly the whole
clip of Montana and Oregon which
will amount to 30,000,000 pounds,)
are in first hands j-et. Woolen mills,
although stopped at present, have a
good stock of wools, mostly foreign,
on hand. With the money market
in such an unsettled condition, fall
wools, even if salable, will not com
mand very high prices.
1 would advise all my friends who
can keep their sheep in good condi
tion without shearing this fall, not to
shear, as I doubt if it will pay them
to do so. The only hope we have is
that the American people will come
to their senses, and will vote for
sound money and protection ia No
vember next. Kvery sheepman or
partj- interested in sheep or wool
should try his utmost to get all his
friends to vote the right way. We
have had enough exierienee in two
years of"free wool, which reduced the
production of wool in the United
States not less than 150,000,000
pounds, making paupers of sheepmen.

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to care in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is
tbe only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a consti
tutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Care is taken internally, acting directly
npon the blood and mucous surtaces of
the system, thereby destroying the foun
dation of tbe disease, and giving the
patient strength by bnilding np the con
stitution and assisting nature in doing
its work. Tbe proprietors bave so much
faith in its curative powers, that they
offer One Hundred Dollars for any case
that it fails to cure. Send for list of
