III ML MARKET
Mills Make Purchases
In Leisurely Manner,
l Leaving No Chance
rtOSTON. Mags.. May 28. (Spoclal)
Another wook of rather Indifferent
hnainoKK in thfl seaboard wool mark
eta has corao and gone Tho mills are
buying wool now ana again in mo
moat leisurely manner, and, In aplto
of tho fact that somo of them aro
known to havo fairly largo require
menu still to cover, thoy contlnuo to
buy In tho most hand-to-mouth order,
making tho most of tho Indisputable
fact that stocks of wool aro heavy
and thnt thcro Is no need for haato In
covering. , ,
Moreover, thoy do not Intend that
thoro shall bo any opportunity for
tho clothing people to catch them un
aware again with largo cancellations
such as thoso which happened a year
ago and nearly put somo of tho largo
mills Into bankruptcy.
Kiwn Ttulnf Oil lot
Rninnnr and topmnkcrs say busl
ncss has been quiet with them dur
ing tho last week, as wen as wun
tho weavers of cloth, no now business
of moment having been put on tho
books. For tho time being, most of
tho mills havo a constdorablo volume
of orders still to run off tho books,
enough, In fact, to keep tho majority
of them fairly well occupied until tho
first of July, at least, oy wnicn timo
It Is hoped that further business will
bo In sight.
For tho moment, however, trado Is
in tho doldrumB. This Is reflected
more or less In the fact that ship
ment of wool by rail and sea from
Boston, which rose recently to about
6,000,000 pounds of wool por week,
havo lately dropped to slightly over
2,000,000 pounds per week.
In spite of the lessened activity,
values havo remained fairly steady;
a fact which la attributed largely to
the pressure of tho emergency tariff
If the permanent tariff could bo
enacted sufficiently soon, this might
bo desirable In view of the admitted
Imperfections In the emergency meas
ure Operations General
Operations throughout tho West
aro becoming more general, although
buying Is proceeding In a moderate
war. considerable wool being con
signed against advance of 1 to 12
cents a pound for tho better fine and
fine medium clips as a rule; some of
the poorer wools reallilng even small
Tho Parowan. Utah, growers, ac
cording to dlrpatches received hero,
sold their pool of over 50,000 fleeces,
estimated at closo to a half million
pounds, all told, to a Philadelphia
house at 17 cents In the grease, com
pared with 63 cents received for the
same wools last year. Theso aro un
derstood to bo wools of the flno and
fine medium order of fair staplo and
shrinking about 65 per cent.
Buy In Texn
Boston dealers have been operat
ing moro or less In Texas during the
week, and have paid anywhero from
16 to 20 cents, depending upon the
wool, the higher price, of course, be
ing for the llghtor shrinking twelve
months wool. Last year tor wooi ui
the latter type 71 and 82 cents wens
offered for n good cup, anu me om
summarily rejected by tho growers,
who later consigned their wools to
tho snm dealer on on advance of 25
cents. This advance provea to do in
nirnmt or tho valuo of tho wool, when
sold at the growers' direction, and It
Is up to them, to make good a deficit
of several thousand dollars out of
this year's wool.
While tho American markets havo
been hardly holding their own, tho
fnrelrn nrlmarv markets havo been
exhibiting more or less of a rally
from tho low point of tho market. At
tho Australian sales price were main-
talned fairly well right up to tho
close, and clearances of 80 per cent
or better of tho offerings have been
reported Sales were resumed In New
Zealand May 26. after a two-months
suspension. In South America buying
Is reported better for account of Eng
land nnd tho Continent, and values
havo stiffened slightly. Japan has
been taking tho best flno wools In
Australia, while England and tho con
tinent havo been partial to the top
making and inferior wools.
Cut No Surprise
It was hardly surprising that tho
government announced recently that
the salo of army wools to bo held
horo this week had been cut In halves
and that only 3,000,000 pounds
would be offered. These wools, of
courso, aro all of averago quarter
blood era do or bolow, and almost
wholly of South American types,
which competo little with domestic
wools. Tho reason given for tho do
crcaso in quantities offered was that
tho mnrkot Is not in condition to war
rant the offering of tho largor quan
tity. Bales during the week havo shown
llttlo change from thoso of a week
ago, either In quantity, descriptions
or prices. Flno and flno medium ter
ritory wools of fair staplo In tho ori
ginal bags havo been In request
again nt about 15 to 70 cents, while
Australian 64-70s fair combing wools
havo beon sold at 85 to 90 cents, de
pending upon the condition of tho
Medium territories havo been in
request again also, at about tho rango
' of values noted last week, or 60 to
66 cents, clean baf Is for thrco-elghths
combing wools and 40 to 45 cents,
clean for quarter blood combing
