BRADFORD WOOL, THURSDAY.—The bright, pro- mising market with which the old year closed has been followed by one which has been in nearly every respect satisfactory. In all fine wools the better prices of Monday have been maintained, and even if business to-day has not been large, it has been because spinners have covered themselves for the time being, and with advanced rates will not come into the market if they can help it. It is, however, a very good feature that some activity has at last been shown on the users' side of the house." While topmakers have for some months shown a firmness of attitude, as to which spinners and manufacturers manifested considerable in- credulity, it now appears as if consumers of the raw material were admitting increased activity on their own part, and the result is a sounder feeling throughout the trade, from which, fortunately, any spirit of speculation is entirely absent. There has been, however, sufficient demand for topmakers now to ask 211d and 21d for super 64's merino, and 20kd for the best of super 60's ordinary merino and 60's B.A. have also come up in quotation to 19Jd. In fine crossbreds, both 58's and 56's are a farthing dearer than last-mentioned rates, but 50's medium are rather sluggish at something under 12d. In the lower grades 40's are nicely recovering to 7jd, and 36's and 32's are stiffening Ft 7d and 6|d. In English wools the effect has not yet been felt, and it is only the very best classes of lustre sorts that are maintaining their value. Indeed, during the last ten days some English wools have lost in value. Lincoln hoggs are to-day difficult to sell at even 74d and while some Lincoln wethers were sold last week at 5d, buyers will not do business to-day at 4gd. Best North hoggs are 8id and Yorkshire hoggs 9jd. Deep hoggs from the Midland counties are nominally 5|d, with wethers at 4fd. White super hoggs are sold with difficulty at 6d, and wethers are barely worth 4|d. Half-bred hoggs are down to 7d and wethers to 5|d. Selected Irish hoggs can perhaps make 7d, but wethers are not worth more than 5td. Kent wethers are also down 2 to the same figure. It is doubtful if pick" Shropshire hoggs will make more than 71d, and wethers are cheaper proportionately.
