We have known of this move for
some time, but through courtesy to
these gentlemen aud at their request
have said nothing of their venture
for fear that their plaus might be
frustrated, through the publicity of
their scheme. Mr. Keith published
the Chewaucau I'ost for several

on his scheme to start 'a paper at
Coos ISay. They are both thorough

The history of the wool market
shows that prices have declined la
the past few years, when the facts of
the wool situation Indicated that
strong prices should prevail the pres
ent strength of the market, It Is
claimed Is in part a reaction from
such a depression. It will require
a very sagacious mind to determine
from present reports whether prices
are likely to gain strength or suffer
decline. The problem for the wool
grower now to determine Is. shall I
take chances of prices being main-'
tabled or advancing, or sell at offers
now made. The growers situation
may be an element of determination
in this matter, the facts are, there is v
a shortage of woo! la the world and
buyers are anxious to make pur
chases. Conferences between the President
and his trusted advisors develop the
fact that all the leadinu' members of
both Senate and House are opposed
to an extra session of Congress to
revise the tariff nt a dateearlier than
Oct. 1!)05. livery meinherof Congress
from the Pacific coast Is sticking for
as late a date as possible, and most
of them oppose the extra session and
tariff revision, this seems to give
strong promise to Lake county's
wool growers that their wool will
certainly bo iu the hands of manu
factures before there can bo any ex
tra session of Congress or Injury to

Manufactures of woolens have bought
nearly all tho J?0t crap Of V.uul tmai llm "
dealers and are very hopeful, even con-
fident of the tuture. This has been done
in anticipation of their wants, evidently
showing they don't expect any decluie
in wool prices. There are however those
who, while admitting a shortage in wool
supply, believe that the present preval

If it is agreed by all authorities, that
consumption is now closer upon stock
than for several years past, aud that the
danger to prices is from possible labor
disturbances which are uot threatened
