WOOL.—Though another week has passed, NO improvement can be reported in this market, and the same unsatisfactory condition of things con- tinues. Growers and buyers are still very much apart in their estimate of values, the former asking rates much above those ruling in the market. Buyers, of course, are guided by the prices offered by customers, and spinners have to refuse business owing to the low prices offered for yarn. Many growers talk of keeping their clip rather than accept these poor rates, but as certain classes of Colonial wool are exceedingly, low, their action will not have much influence on the market. One thing is certainly evident. that very great care will have to be exercised by buyers in order to avoid loss in taking up this season's clip.
