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
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. , . .
