TABEET IS THE BIO " PROBLEM riockmailtri Coatrna that Ther Are Not Protected and Bar that tke Maaafarlarrn Are Gettlns; All Benefit. CHETENNE, Wyo.. Dee. 18.-(Speclal.)-At the headquarters In thin city arrange ments are bring completed for the. forty Keventli annual convention of the National Wool Growers' association, which will b held In Portland, Ore., on January, 4, B, 4 and 7. 111. The program Is practically completed and Includes the presidents of the Carded Woolen Manufacturers' as sociation of Boston and the National As sociation of Wool Manufacturers of the sums city, these organizations represent ing the carded woolen and worsted manu factuiln Interests of the) t'nlted States, respectively. It Is charged that the causes leading up to the present demands for a revision of schedule K, the wool and woolen schedule of the Payne-Aldrlch tariff law, resulted from the long and bit ter fight between these two great organ isations, the carded woolen Interests repre senting that the tariff discriminates against the wool arrow era and the manu facturers of carded woAlen products and In fa or of the worsted Interests. The worsted Interests claim that the carded woolen manufacturers seek free wool thruugh selfish motives and that the present wool and woolen tariff is the best tint coukt be enacted. . .'.'. Attltndn of Wool Orontn. The wool growers ef the country have known since the enactment of the Poyne AMrlch law, and of the LMngley law be fore It. that they are not recolvlng the 11 and IS cents per pound tariff protection provided for In- those laws, and Instead, on account of- the light- shrinkage of the foreign wools Imported to this country, snl which compete with American wools that shrink nearly 40 rier cent more, re ceive less than 7 cents per pound protec tion, ant! In the cane of wool of the third elans, less than 4 cents per pound protec tion on the average. The wool growers are brtlnnttg to believe they are on the 'sucker'' end of the wool and woolen schedule, and an attempt Is being made to get the two rival manufacturing Inter i est together on the same platform - at Portland and have the controversy threshed out, the wool growers and sheep farmers constituting themselves a Jury to pass upon the merits of the claims and charges of both. The wool growers are submitting facts and figures to the tariff board showing the necessity of protecting the sheep and wool Industry, both from the standpoint of cheaper clothing as wall as cheaper food, believing that with a withdrawal of even the present limited rotectlu of less than 7 cents en the average the flocks of the I'nited States will be wiped out, causing mutton as a food product to become an al most unobtainable luxury, and the Importa tion of poor wools and shoddy to this coun try from foreign lands. , . . Mr rroiuluent Speakers. Men prominent In sheep and wool and mohair husbandry throughout the United StuUs will discuss the tariff problem from tlu producer standpoint, while prominent manufacturer, wool tariff experts and others from fie east' will eltlur deliver J.ii .'s'-i; In person or submit papers. U Is tf.vpfMHed the National Association of Wool Growers at this Portland con- rut lull will place Itself on record In the tariff contrive rav and prepare to protect the lntu4s of the wool grower, sheep frirrrir, breeder, mohair raiser and ail others Identified with this great Ameri can Industry. The railroads have Joined In granting a rate of one fare and one-third from Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming and Montana and states west, and It Is expected the convention will be the larg est gathering of live stock men ever held In the United States.
