New England Metropolis Greatest
Wool Market in United States.
Boston, Dec. 10.—The creation of a
great wool warehouse by western
growers and Chicago business men in
that city has not threatened the
primacy of Boston as the wool mar
ket of America, and the second largest
in the world, according to a state
ment issued by the Association of
Wool Manufacturers.
The Chicago warehouse, recently
completed, is the outgrowth, it is said,
of dissatisfaction among some western
interests with what is alleged to be
the arbitrary methods of eastern
wool buyers, and its purpose is to
eliminate the middleman.
The National association, in its es
timate, places the number of sheep
fit for shearing in the United States at
42,483,205, an increase of 1,981,657 over
the preceding year. The wool season
of 1909 witnessed a full recovery in
prices and volume of business from
the financial panic of 1907-08.
The total wool production of the
United States this year is estimated
at 328,110,749 pounds, an increase of
6,863,137 pounds over last year.
The total value of the wool clip Of
1909, as estimated on tlhe price in
Boston is $88,829,746, as compared
with $61,123,785, for 1908. Total im
ports of foreign wool for 1909 were
266,409,304 pounds as compared with
123,980,524 pounds for the year pre
The estimated wool production of
the world in 1895 was 2,682,986,773
pounds. The production of the world
this year, according to tlhe latest of
ficial estimate, is 2,803,326,546 pounds,
an increase in 14 years of only 111,
149,773 pounds. The wool product is
not keeping pace with the wool using
population for the per capita product
in 1895 was 4.88 pounds, while now
it is 4.27 pounds.
