R. V. McCltiro of Hooding. U.i., secre

snclaUon. reached Omaha Friday, this
time to stay until the national convention
Mr. McOI-.ire rays the tariff la to he
the absorbing topic of discussion at the
incctltiK ainl has written the following on.
the BubJrt for The I'.ce:
"Ia-i us sco wh.it the tariff upon wool
Is cohtlnt? the American people, and
whether or not tho American wool grower
la In any way respoiidlblo for tho hi(;h
price of clothing at retail.
"flotli for men'a clothing welphs any
where from ton to sixteen ouncea to tho
yard. The average. welKht .of a yard of
cloth for medium weight Roods la fourteen
ouncea to tho yard. To tnako the average
man's suit of clothes consisting; of three
piece, three and one-half yards of cloth
ero required, "f that the wclKht cf the
cloth In this suit cf Clothes Is three pounds
and oner ounce. As the wool cornea from
the sheep It must be washed and scoured
1 before using. After this Is dono con
siderable wafte occurs in converting the
wool Into cloth, so that to make tills suit
weighing three pounds and one ounce ap
proximately ten and one-half pound of
greasy wool would be required.
"The averaKo price of wool in the west
this .year did , not . exceed 14 .cents tier I.
pound but in order to be fair let Vs RS"
Rtime '.that the wool grower' receives lfi
rents pr pound for his wool. If this bb
tcue, the,n for all the wool required to.
mak the average all wool suit of clothes,
the-: American wool grower received the
enormous sum of $1.6. Now, remember
that'thjg is an all wool suit, large enough
for vine average-sized man. It Is made
pure .American wool, and contain
neither cotton nor shoddy. This is a suit
that your tailor will charge you from
$-T to t for, and the storekeeper will
charge from $2U to $40. With hla show
ing Is It fair for the American people to
endeavor to destroy our sheep Industry
lythe removal of the little tariff that
we now get? '
."The tariff on wool baa probably In
creased the cost of the woo ,in this suit
of clothes about 30 "cents," and can yo
believe that If it were removed that a
$40 suit would then sll at W9.T.0? I think

Asks Creamery to
, yioko Good on Some
Butter' Thrown Out
Whether the West Io!nt Creamery com
pany should reimburse the Jerpe Com
mission company for money psld the gov
ernment In fines because a lot of West
Tolnt butter was not up to first standard
is a question of law submitted to Judge
William A. Iledlck by attorneys In the
suit of the Vest lol;n company against
tho commission concern.
Tho suit 1 the outgrowth of a transac
tion had three years ago. The Jeipe
company bought butter from the Vet
Point concern and sold It to a local ex
chango that sofd It to local retailers.
Pure food inspectors nelzed It as "adul
terated" butter because it contained
moisture in excess of 18 per cent. One
firm was fitted $.'. and another lie
cuuse they were Innocent purchasers and
it wished to protect them and retain their
commercial good will the Jerpe company
paid the fines and the costs, a total of
$419. M. The Jerpe company then refused
to pay the West Point company $:09.'.H,
the price of the entire lot of butter, but
offered to pay $4S9.0. The Went Point
company sued for the total amount, the
Jerpe company defending with the con
tention fhat at law the creamery com
pany should make tho fines and costs
the wool grower received SI. (IS for fur
nishing- the wool required for .making.
The manufacturer sold me the three and
one-hair-yards of doth-Jor $-i.&T. But the
tailor, .with!, me furnishing the feloth.
wanted'aa much as $16 to make ft into, a
"Wit of clothes. Let me say without fear
of contradiction that at the. present prices
there is. not a suit of . clothes in the citi
es Omaha that the American wool grower
received; as much as for furnlslfina
all the woo! required to make It, and It
matters juit what the suit was sold for.
The AmVrl.can rPlo may. remove all tho
duty from " w ool if they desire, but It
311 not-cheapen their 'clothing a single
nny, and it will destroy one of the na
tion's greatest Industries." ' T
