THE WOOLJMARKET
BUYERS AND GROWERS
SPARRING FOR POINTS.
Three Quarters of a Million Pounds
Now Stored In Pendleton Montana
Losses Give Sheepmen Hopes for
Higher Prices.
The wool niarUut at the present
tlmo resembles the great American
Game ot poker, at least from the
growers' side. Every man who has
ool thinks his wool Is worth as
much or more than the other fellow's,
rno sales at Arlington yesterday woro
a farce so far as any movement of
wool was concerned, according to re
ports from there. The buyers are
scaling from 10 to 13 cents and this
figure the growers refuse to accept.
Several small sales of special grade
were made In the Arlington country
prior to the sales, for 15 cents, and
the growers took the cue and hold
for higher prices when the ware
houses opened with the pools. The
buyers refuse to pay the price asked
and the wool is still In pool.
There will bo about 750,000 of wool
in storage for the sales at this place
on Thursday and Friday next The
buyers are Independent In their at
titude and claim that the growers
will not hold out longer than the sec
ond sales or if they do will yield at
last in private sale, to the terms of
fered them. Whether or not this will
bo true remains to bo seen.
The sheepmen know the ravages
ot tho recent storm In Montana and
can guess something of the conse
quences on tho price of wool. They'
realize that the loss of a million or
more sheep from the Western mar
ket means much to tho neerecnto nut.
put of wool and will hold for the 1
market to raise.
The wool quotations have been
strong and with conditions prevailing
since the storm they hope for a still
stronger upward tendency, so the
growers say.
On the other hand, the buyers con
tend that there Is plenty of wool in
the market and that they can pay so
much and no more. Then again," the
growers lose by eacli added day of in
surance and storage. Hence they are
Independent and refuse to stretch the
limit. Each side holds good cards.
and Is playing to fill Its hands.
The Washington output is practi
cally sold, and the Idaho market is
cleaned out. The Oregon market is
yet to be opened, in fact the Pendle
ton sales on this week will draw the
cork. Twenty-seven carloads of wool
came In yesterday for the scouring
mills, and 17 today, while all the
warehouses are receiving thir sea
son's cllti about as rapidly as It can
be handled.
After the sales here the situation
may be a more open book, and the
movement of the market can be per
haps more readily discerned, but until
then It is a game between the buyers
and the sellers, a feinting and spar
ring for an opening, with the odds
about even.
If the buyers can bluff the growers
into the belief that the market will
not Tlbe, they will get the wool, If,
bowever, tho growers hold a while.
they hope to (ill to the cards they
have and call the bluff.
