Senator Carter on Wool.
A Washington dispatch credits
Senator Carter, of Mou tana, with
the following remarks:
The effort to get the wool
schedule iu desirable shape has
been long continued. Much of the
difficulty has risen through tbt
inability of the wool growers to
agree amongst themselves on the
exact terms and figures they
desired. Then again certain of
our friends havn created «r-uble by
insisting upon ru*va and terms
they eould not uphold or jus'ify
with logic:» 1 arguments. My own
view has oeen to rid of the ait
valorem duty e ..irely and to secure
specific duties on all grades of
wool, the duties tu be su reasonab'e
just and defensible as to nee»
essarilv be permanent We want,
j adeqrate proie«.tiou or a per
man eut. basio an 1 dutii > imposed
in such a manner as to avoid fraud
through undervaluations. This
end has been pratically agreed
upon."

fix the rate at. 9 and 10 cents
respectively. The arrangement
for these rates will be agreed upon
before 'be schedules are reaeheo
in the senate, :;ousquently needless
speech making and resulting 'oss
of time will be avoided The
general understanding amongst
(he friends of the bill is that
speech making wili be left to those
who oppose the bill or desire to
delay its passage We want
action rather than words at this
time. Ever hour we delay the
passage of the bill permits th
landing of an additional ship loao
of wool to depress the hom
market which we are striving f>
secure with the least possible
delay for our home woolgrowers

The Wool Market.
Boston, June 5.—The Boston
Commercial Bulletin says to day
the wool market- The market
stronger in tone. The largest
manufacturers are buying big
b'ocks, especially of foieign wools
One dealer sold 1,500,000 pounds
of Bunenos Ayres crossbred at 17
or 18 cents: Another sold 800,
009 pounds of«Pu:ita Ay-ei wools at
16 cents; another 1,000 baits of
Adelaide wools on a scoured basis
of 38 cents. Foreign markets are
strong and higher. Tops have
advanced in Europe. The drouth
is sla\ ing sheep by the mil ion in
Australia and stocks of wool in
Europe are much depleted. High
activity and an advance of five per
cent are reported from Montevideo.
Meanwhile domestic wool is utterly
neglected and dealers caunot make
themselves whole on their early
purchaso3 in the west.

The Montana commissioner for
the Omaha exposition, W. H.
Sutber in, is now urging the wool
growers of this state to prepare
xhibits of wool for the Omaha ex
position of next year, so that
Montana --an take the rank she
entitled to as the great wool
producing state of the union.
With this end in view he is out the
ollowing circular to woolmen:
In order to carry out the plan
for an exhibition of Montana's
varied products and resources at
the Trans-Mississippi and Inter
national exposition at Omaha in
1898, it is desirable that sample
f eeees of wool of the clip of 1897
be furnished by sheep owners. 1
will receipt for the wool if
furnished and promise to return
the same or sell to the best po-sible
»dvaLtage and account for it to
the owners.
The natce of the owner, age and
breeding of the sheep from which
he fleece is taken must be furnish
ed in order that it may be prop; rly
entered, and it is very desirable
that the fleece be clean :ind care
fully shorn Tie up neatly, wrap,
and sew in sacking, end keep in a
secure place until further notice.
Everyone concedes that the
sheep industry should be suitably
represented at the exposition, but
it remains with the sheep owners
whether they are represented or
not-, as the appropriation is so
'united that it can only be ueed
fur fansportatlon and installing
exhibits

There is a strong probability
that cattle shippers' passes will be
taken out of the list of deadhead
tickets soon. Ths Chicago freight
committee discussed tha matter
yesterday and will take it up
again. It seems that certain firms
in the stock yards have been in the
habit of making a little pin money
out of the cattle pass privilege.
Railroads allow one fare trans
portation for a carload of cattle.
This pass is supposed to be used by
the man who is supposed to go
along with the car of cattle to care
for them. It is charged that somo
of the live stock brokers divide up
a large shipment of many cars,
making their clerks the shippers,
and thus get as many passes as
there are shipped. The passes,
according to the reports, then are
turned over to the ticket brokers,
who sell them far under the rate,
and the stock yards people get a
share of the proceeds.
The railroad officials say ther«
no longer exists any reason for
cattle shippers to send men along
to feed and water livestock, as the
railroads bave men and facilities
for di log it. It lis proposed to
stop the practice of issuiug passes,
and Instead to charge a low rate
for boua fide cattle tenders, and
make a corresponding reduction iq
freight charges,
