considering the advisability of grant
ing an application mado by the city
of Seattle for a loan ot $500,000 from

law for such loans being 3; per
There is some objection to the
loan because of its size, and the
transaction depends largely upon the
showing that will be made by the Se
attle parties. There is $700,000 in
permanent school funds on hand in
the state, owing to its accumulation
under the former minimum rate of
interest, which was 4 per cent.

WOOL SALES TODAY.
About One Quarter Million Pounds
Changes Hands This Afternoon.
Tho second series of tho annual
wool sales are belnr held In the city
this atternoon and tho wool In tho
I ig warehouses of tho place are be
ing emptied of their load of Hecres.
i There Is a large number of buyers
I hero aim they all aeem to wnnt to
buy and an a result the crop is mov
ing at a good rate. On tho other
hand the growers seem to bo as anx
ious to sell as tho buyers to buy and
welcome any bid that Is In the na
ture of reason.
During tho day hut two bids have
been rejected and one of them has
hcen reconsidered and tho original
offer has been accepted. Tho prices
offered have been about the Bamo as
they wero on the last day here, with
one or two exceptions. On the last
day tho highest price offered was 13
as against 14 on today, but this fig
ure was only offered for tho clip of
one man. It Is thought that the even
ing will sco most of the wool stored
here sold, only a few of tho growers
being willing to take the risk of
holding thplr clips for prlvato sale,
and to pay the Insurance required by
the warehouses. The sales made up
