BRADFORD WOOL, THURSDAY.—The wool market displays a better tone to-day. both interior and ex- terior conditions being rather more favourable in their outlook. The movement of the Loudon wool sales is believed to have been nothing more than a temporary check, the fall of the Bank rate is good for the market, and the better news from South Africa is stimulating. Business is very scarce, for, whilst holders have rather more confidence, users are content to wait, being pretty well covered for the time being but prices are fully maintained to- day.
