nearly 70.000,000 young Balmon have

W««k Wool Market.
E. Y. Judd, of the Pendleton Wool
Scouring & Packing Company, writes
from tire East that the recent organisa

moralized the wool market and is
largely tesponsible for the decline in
the price of wool, as buyers are at sea
as to the future action of the trust and
are unable to determine what their
own action is to be. Mr. Judd says
that this trust alone will consume
100.000,000 pounds of wool annually,
which is one-third of the total annual
product of the country.
