BRADFORD WOOL, THURSDAY.—As might be ex- pected, the check to prices administered at the wool sales in London has not been with effect here. It would be hardly possible to-day to obtain such prices as on Monday for any wool which is of short or inferior quality, and the tone generally is cer- tainly less confident. Nevertheless it is claimed by sellers that all good qualities of new wool are as dear as ever. Under existing circumstances users are naturally wholly disinclined to come into the market except for what they are forced to buy, but sellers, on the other hand, are not greatly disposed to press matters and still express some belief in a reoovery. English wools are quieter and less firm also because of the check, but mohair is firm, with a good demand, especially in the lower qualities.
