In conclusion tho memorialists say:
"As all tho wool grown In tho world is
now wanted, tho American growor could
hardly bo injured by tho readjustment
of values. If, at tho worst, his product
should fall slightly in price, ho would
bo componsatod soon by tho larger and
moro cortaln domand from tho stimu
lated and Increased manufacture. Tho
domand for mutton Is rapidly Increasing
and mutton Is afforded in hotter quality
by sheep which produco long wool than
by tho breeds producing short, flno
wool. Tho half-bred mutton sheops'
wool, in tho warp, works admirably
with tho rejectod worsted flbros and tho
Montevideo floecostn the filling. Thus
tho mutton flocks would bo stimulated
through tho importation of freo raw
matorlals. The American consumer of
woolens and worsteds would got hotter
fabrics at prices conorally lower."
