In the first place, Ameriesa wool has not
"dropped from year to year" under this
"so-called neeseary protectlam." sad the
indastry hbs not lessened importance
ouder the regime of the tariff. Secondly.
neither this no: any other tariff is i the
slibrhtet degree responsible for say fall in
the pries of wool.-Helenas Journal
Teot us see about that.
In 1t,67 a duty of 11 cents per pound
was placed on unwashed wool through
an agreement between the associations of
wool manufacturers and wool growers.
There were then more than '7.(I,00,0
sheep east of the Mississippi and Mis
ouririvers. In 10t1 there were only 13.
476.(u sheep in this region. In 19:. there
were in Ohio 6.7:30,0f shlee'.; in 1870 it
.al only 4...18.-O;o n 18f) 4,4J.(Nii0;. in
ISt;. 5,!04,0:0; and in 18.) It had but
.94I:,0100, though in 1891 it had 4,161i000.
A falling off of more than one-third in
the state of Ohio during the twenty-one
rears of protective tariff on wool, and in
that time the populat.on had increased i
more than 1,000.(j0. In the meantime
the prices of Ohio wools of the various
grades have dropped from three to five
cents a pound during the last eight
rears The figures in the wool market
to-day present a startling comparison
when we remember that from 1857 to
1iOXi when we had free wool, the price
reached as high as 53 cents a pound. It'
also appears from the -Woo Book" of
1.1, that the grade of Ohio fleece wools
which sold for 13 cents in 19)0 were.
worth but 32 cents under the tariff from
1,4:' to 1K:0.
So much for Ohio. Now let us look
at Montana. In 1886 Montan wools sold
at from `3 to `5 cents per pound, rang
ing at 24 cents for the best clips. In
1887 the highest price paid was 210'
cents, and in 188, the average price was
1) cents. In 188J the bulk of the clip of'
the state was consigned on an average
return of not more than 13 cents. In
1890 the average price was not more
than 17 cents, and this year it thus far
averages that or a fraction more.
These are figures and facts which the,
esteemed Journal cannot refute despite
its broad denial of everything. It is
conclusively shown that prices have
dropped heavily under a protective tariff
and it is absurdly useless for our con
temporary to explain that this as the
result cf a continual glut in the market
for many years.

"Ids is the Lincoln of our day," says
