American Consul at Bradford, Eng
land, Reports That There is De
mand for United States Wool.
Washington, April S The Amer
ican Consul at Bradford. England, re
ports to the department of atate that
an endless amount of gostip has been
caused thro during toe list six weeks
by the offering for sale of lirg.' quanti
ties of American wool. Several iota of
Ohio wool, aggregating 50.000 pounds,
"ere reported among the purchases
On Bradford firm whic'.i bongltt o.OJO
pound, paying for the various grades
ircoi 224 to 2il cuts per pound, said the
wool ga7- perfect satisfaction, so much
so, In fact, that they were boi ling it
for higher prices.
The purchaser explained to the con
sul that the Amcfioan ikin wools were
espk.ially adapted for boiiery yarns
and were tqu.il to the thirst English
crosthead", tne only thing that hax
kept their price down being in hi
i piuion the fact tiiat American man
fictnrere have not as fully master-d
the manipulation of tht skin or pulled
wcois which are taken from the sheep
after death. Ai a general thing thf
prices of American wools of all grades
are now practically the same as of the
similar Enghh gradj.
The manufacturers in Bradford as:
sort that the momsnt the tariff bill b -comes
a law the pricea of Am.rican
wool will revive and several o( them
are so stronir in this belief that they
nave made laru'e Investments In wooi
now held in Philadelphia and Boston.
They iusiit that tne new impetus
given to manufactures bv free raw
material will cause larger qiuntitieaof
the United States grown article to be
mix-Ml witii Sue foreign wools and that
the demand for American wools for
Hosiery purposes will immediately set
m on the Engliah market.
It is already propose I by wo.il deal
ers in England t eXC .anira the grades
of wool more s litable for dress go la
