IlOrrON, Mass., Feb. 15. Special
foatturcii. of Uio wool market havo
ifioa Rtrgecialos, an easier tono to
prlcos MiflflnVtlicr shTpmcnts, of .for
eign wool to England for rwmlo
thoro. Some of this wool, llko that,
noted last wceV, wns wool belong
ing to Now England mills, which
had boon In bond for nearly tho
thrco-yoar tlmo limit allowed by tho
govornmont. Thin week tho inovo
ment has broadoned out further,
and shtpmonts Include not only lots
belonging to tho mill, which had
to bo wlUidrawn nt tho expiration
of tho tlmo limit, olthor by exporta
tion or by tho payment of tho du
t'tr, but also lots sold by dealers
hero to buyers In England, lines
sent ovor on speculation and other
lots, originally shipped hero on
consignment, but which havo now
boon nrdorod back by tho ownors.
The wools thus moved wero grades
wilc. havo been very dull n this
market for many months. OuUldo
of UiIh movomont, which has nntur
ully attracted consldornblo ntton
tlon, tho market has beon moving
within very nnrrow linos, Fleoco
wool j, which constltuto a largo port
of the unsold wool left In this mar
ket, nro neglected. FIno washed do
lalnits ate still being held nt 27 W
to 2b cents, but a small lot Is re
ported sold as low as twonty-soven.
Tho bulk of tho week's sales
havo boon in territory wools, both
greasy and scoured wools having
moved qulto freely for tho season.
Manufacturers aro short of wool,
and aro frcquout buyers of irniall
lots needed to tldo thorn over the
oraorgency. Manufacturers aro now
showing a groat deal of nervous
nous, especially ovor tho garment
workers' strlko, which has played
havoc with tho heavyweight season.
Nov that tho bottor linos of goods
nro being shown, manufacturers find
a strong disinclination to buy unions
a guaranteo Is glvon that prlcos will
bo no higher than thoy woro a year
ago. Cheaper linos sold very frooly
'nt tho advance established at tho
oponlng of the heavyweight season.
Therefore It sooma nil the harder to
accept t)io quotations current last
yoar for tho bettor goods now being
Altogother tho situation Is bo
coming Inoreiisliigly difficult for
both manufacturers nnd wool deal
ers, nnd no Improvement nppoars to
bo In sight. Somo members of tho
wool trado would llko to sua prlcos
break a little, In ordor to help them
buy tho now clip wools In the West
oa what la considered a roosonablo
basis. Tho larger house who still I
havo wool In their lofts aro not bo I
eagor for lowor prlcos HoporU
from tho Wost Indicate that growers
nro very firm in their Idww. Owing i
to tho firm stand taken by tho
growors, no contracting has yot boon
dono In tho West for Iloston no
count, and only a little wool has
boon bought or consigned from tho
oarly shorn Arizona wools.
Officers Criticised and Conditions Here Com-
i mented Upon By Newspapers At
Vernal and Myton. fl
Tho authorities of the city of
Price, Carbon county, Utah, havo ro
f il sod to make a Kottleimntt with
Martin Alirod of Vernal for tho
death of his two boys in tho Jail of
that city several weeks ngo, says
Vornnl's Express of last Friday.
Through his attorneys. King & King
of Salt Lake City, Alirod submitted
n proposition to tho council nnd nl
lowod It four wcoks for an answer.
Tho tlmo has expired nnd no action
wns taken. Now Allred proposes
to bring suit for damages, but Just
how much will bo naked has not
beon mndo public. In IU Issuo of
February Cth tho Hosorvatlon News,
published nt Myton, has this to say
in regard to soiling liquor to
"A fow wcoks ngo two country
boys, ono 17 tho othor 19 years, ar
rived In tho lltUo city of Prlco,
Utah. They had beon soverol days
on tho road from Uiolr homo near
Vernal. Tho woathor was btttorly
cold nnd thoy woro chilled nnd fa
tigued ' from thotr long Journoy
They sought wnnnth nnd client
nnd someone In l'rlco sold thorn li
quor, It Is n orlmlnnt offenso to
sell whlnky to minors, and thoso
boys worn minors. So tho so in co no
who sold tho boys liquor committed
a crlmo. A llttlo Iator In Uio ovon
Ing tho town marshnl arrested tho
boys for drunkenness and lodged
thorn In a cold, filthy Jail for tho
night. Tho marshal dldnt' hunt for
tho somoono who had committed tho
first crlmo of soiling liquor to min
ors. No, ho wont homo and snugly
to bod. At daylight a flro alarm
was soundtd. Tho marshal wns
called to tho Jail whoro tho two
country bois5wVevfoU4dabur9sdo
death. ' ' r y ' "
"Now, suit has boon brought by
Martin Alirod, fathor of tho boys,
against tho city of Prlco for tho
doath of his sons. It will bo Inter
osttng to learn what dofonso Prlco
will mako, What dofonso Is thoro
for u city that permits liquor to bo
sold to minora In violation of law
nnd make no effort to punish tho
criminal who does It, but Instead
arrests tho Innocent victims of tho
orlmo, lodges thorn In a flrotrnp Jail
nnd permits thorn to burn to death?
Isn't that about as deep In crimin
ality as any city could well sink it-

"The domago suit which now hangs
ovor tho heads of tho taxpayers may.
cause tho people of Prlco to awaken
from their Indltforenco, for It is
difficult to soo how any court that
protends to administer Justlco could
docldo against tho father of thoso
two boys who sloop In tho llttlo
comotory at Vernal."
W. C. Earhart, a citizen of Prlco,
wrltos tho Rosorvatlon News at My
ton concerning tho d oat lis of tho
two Alirod boys In tho city Jail
horo. Ho says: "A numbor of
wltnossns wore examined nt the In

Thoso boys wero put In Jail about
