from Hie Union Hcout.
Ah a wool grower of Union county I
have given tho ipicstiou of tarllf on wool
coiiHldurublo thought and investigation
since the Introduction of the Mills bill iu
Congress, which puts wool on tho free
list. In reaching my conclusions I have
luvektigated curtain projioaltiomt, which,
if no intrusion. I should like U place be
fore my brother wool growers of Union
county. If they will give these proitosi
lions their candid consideration, and fol
low up the conclusions, they certainly
will gain valuable Information.
Tho discussion of tho question on to
w bother or not thu turlli on wool en
hances the price ol thu home product,
bus brought out a great many facts and
figures tending to prove that It does not.
There are phaseH of the caso which, it
seems, have not been tainted out us pro
minently as they deserve, that would in
dicate that the home producer not only
docs not receive any protection from the
luritr by way of enhanced prices, but is
IKwillvcly injured by such laritr. We
will present certain projiositionH which
we think argue for this conclusion.
First: The manufacturer by reason of
the turiu on iuiorted wools, is com
iielled to nav from to 30 ir rent.

Undoubtedly the manufacturer and wool
merchant. The wool agents visit the
wool grower ud Itcll him the market is
no and so, and can give him a certain
price for hi wool. If the wool grower
object to the price he can then consign
his wool to thu wool merchant, who is in
collusion with tho muuufucturur, und

Second : The consumption of woolen
goods in tho United States requires about
lW0,000,000, Kunds of wool yearly. Wo
produce ubout :i00,000,000 xmiidrt and
import now about 114,000,000 iwunds.
If tho other 1:15,000.000 younds of wool
wero lniH)rled free of duty in tho United
States, would there not In) a dollcit in tho
foreign supply as a roiiHcipiouco, und nn

character to homo grown should bo ad

Would tho. price declinu so loncuslho

Third: Statistics show u rapidly in
creasing opulation iu tlio United States
an Increasing factor of consumption.
Uoes thu t ui 1 11 stlmuiatusheep hushanilry
to meet thu demand for wool which such
a factor of consumption tilings ubout?
Let u seo. Accoidlug to the roxrt on

whole iiiuchaulsm of tho ltuimbllean

tho only salvation for thu wool grower
hero Is to direct his prayers to Almighty
God (instead of thu ltepublican party,)
for thu creation of uuw woilds to which
to transfer his bleatiui: "little lambs."
The barren hills of thu West are u sad
memento of the fact that sheepmen ut

arising inim pasturing mo samu, nut

growers drovo nearly o,000,000 sheep out

Fourth : Iu thu clussillcatlon of forelim

PuriMsu of levying an imixirt duty, com.
blttiiiir wools of u staplo of four and miti
half indies weru selected as ouu grade

United Slates, ami tho manufacturer hud
to have it iu thu manufacture of u cer
tain kind of cloth, and cousooucutlv u
tarlil' on such wools would necessarily

At the present tlmu wools of one und
oiiu-half inches staplo aro combined and
used very lurguty in tlio miinuiuciuro ol
the samu kind of uoods that in 1807 ru-
uulred the long staple wools, Itccausu of
tho inflection reached in continuing

Thu tariir laws of 1807 weru enacted
solely for tho purjKse of revenue, No
