As predicted by the Times before the

to tne cnoice oi tbe convention, it is
true that there were a number oi
friendly contests, as tne above report

all defeated candidates have submitted
gracefully to the will of the convention
and will stand by the ticket and assist
in its election.
The warmest bout was between
Vawter Crawford and James Hart for
the clerkship nomination, and even in
this there were no unfair methods re
sorted to on either side and Mr. Hart
like a tree republican, will fall in line
and work for the success of the entire
ticket at the polls next June.

T. C. Powers of Montana, who
has Just Returned from
Boston, Gives Information
that Vitally Interests the
The Hon. T. C. Powers, of Montana,
one of the best known wool factors in
this country, who was in Boston laet
week calling upon the wooj trade, says :
"All jobbing honses," be said, "are
buying in a band-to-mouth way, but
the dealers throughout the country
have sold out more of their woolen
goods this year than in many other
winters in a long time, which leaves
the manufactured product pretty well
"In fact, tbe output is mora closely
sold up than it has been at any other
season in four or Sve Tears at least.
As to prices, the jobbers of woolen
goods seem to dictate. They claim
that they cannot get any more for
the manufactured product.
"I do not look for lower prices, be
cause the wool is not in the country.
and from a statistical standpoint the
world's product never looked better.
Being campaign year, all jobbers and
dealers are working from hand to mouth.
Farmers in the Middle West and in
all the West, are doing well and get
ting good prices tor their grain, with
fine prospects for the future. On this
account there is bound to be a good
market for wool. Thi'a applies' Irom
Ohio west to the coast. Meat products
are also looking np some. They have
beea depressed. The ranchman has
suffered from the depreciation.
"The coming wool clip in the West
will be from lo to 15 per cent less in the
number of pounds than it was last year.
This is a conservative estimate and
wool men here in Boston whom 1 have
talked with who choose to express them-
selves, believe this to be true so far aa
Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and Utah
are concerned, and these are some of
the largest wool producing states.
"The falling off in clip is caused by
in years gone by.
There seems to be a general disposition
everywhere to work along more con
"The money market now seems to be
steady, and those who are doing m
careful and conservative business, can
get tbe money. Confidence in the
money supply is far better than it was
six months ago.
"I am glad to ie that there is no
speculation in wool such as has been
the future, and their manly ooaduct in . ... iD.claUon
