Boston Wool Market, Boston, Mass. Feb. 27. A perplex ing situation exists in the American wool trade, although the new .wool season approaching will show a short age ot 25,000,000 pounds In the Amerl can clip and will disclose the necessi ty of importing from 100,000,000 to 200, 000,000 pounds of the staple this year. Pr'ces of domestic wools range from 15 to 30 per cent below the import ing point in the large eastern mark ets. The spread in wool prices here and abroad was first noted about the be ginning of 1910. Since that time in the face of a strong foreign market, prices In domestic markets have sag ged off and the gap has' been steadily widening. Not only is the stock of domestic wool in America likewise re duced to a minimum, but authorities estimate that today supplies of wool in this country are at least 50 per cent below the volume carried at the beginning of 1910. Unless the fo reign situation weakens the near ap proach of the necessity for import ing will gradually level up prices fof the domestic staple to a point near er foreign prices.
