What would they do with it?
There is but one answer. They
must sell it for what it would bring
low enough to undersell the
cheapest wool in the world. The
existence of such and enormous
surplus, over half of the whole
domestic product, would send .the
market so low that farmers would
airain slaughter their flocks for

WHAT MR. SPRINGER WOULD DO
FOR THE FARMER.
Some one pointed out to Mr.
Springer that we collected JHl,,('.,,KI
revenue last year from wool,
which his bill proposes to admit
free, and that his scaling down of
duties on other things involved a
further reduction of revenue, on
last year's importation as a basis,
of $19,500,000 more. He was re
minded that the government needed
every cent collected under existing
laws for legitimate expenditure and
asked how the loss of revenue fore
shadowed in his free wool bill was
to be made up. "O, there will be no
loss of revenue," he in effect replied.
"The lower duties on woolens and
worsteds will invite larger importa
tions, so that just as much revenue
will result from the lower rates as
was last year obtained from the
Do the American people realize
the signification of that brief state
Last year we imported 43,000,01X1
dollar's worth of wool mantifac
tures. At the decreased rates fixed
in the springer bill-they average
about :i per cent on last years s
imports as a basis we should have
to import ll.'i.UOO.iXX) dollars worth,
in increase of 72,0X),(XX) dollars
over lS'.U, in order to make up the
$20,(XX),tXX) deficiency iu revenue.
This, remember in what Mr.
Springer himself says would take
What effect would this increase
in imported goods have on domes
First, as to the farmer: The $72,-
000,000, increase in manufactured
wool would contain 216,000,000,
pounds of raw wool, which would
come in to take tbe place of 62,000,
000 dollar's worth of goods now
made in this country of domestic
wool, and to reduce the demand for
the product of our own sheep
growers by 210,000,000 pounds.
But this is not all. Since Mr.
Springer admits that a mere de
crease in duties will increase im
ports so enormously, certainly he
cannot deny that his remov ing the
whole duty from raw wool will
tend to increase imports of it also.
At the very least we should import
no less ot foreign raw wool than
was imported' last year, when the
amount was 1K,(XX),0(X poundo.
Of this 85,000,000 pounds were car
pet wool which we should have to
import any way, since it is not
and, as free traders contend, can
not be successfully produced here.
We consume, at a liberal esti
mate, rXJ,000,(XX) pounds of raw
wool in the United States. We can
safely assume that the amount
would not go above that figure the
first year of Mr. Stirinerer's policy if
it should be inaugurated by the
congress. Now, let in see where
but our main dependence must be
noon foreiirn wools. This is the
inevitable logic of Mr. Springer
admission, and it would be well for
American farmers to understand
what it means to them -Economist.
