Boston, April 25. - Thero has boen a fair business in wool d uring the past week, though buyers purchase oautiously, and only as wanted. There is no demand for goods and stocks aro aocumulating and heavy pay rolls to meet. Many feel that they would be better to stop the milis at once, but hesitate doing so. The prospects for a favorable chango are not encouraging. In line fleeces thtere is no change. Desirable lots of extra and doublé extra Pé"hnsylvavia aud Ohio still command 55aö7c, but tbe stock of these wools is light and in few hands, while fine fleeces are steady. Fine foreign is more or less neglected. Michigan fleeces are selling principally at 50a52c. About 150,000 lbs. havo been taken in this range. In pulled wools business has been smaller than for somo weeks, and the feeling is not so firm, though a ïnarked change in prices has taken place. For low grades of pulled there is scarcely any inquiry. Combing fleeces continue to be taken at steady prices, and stocks of this description are sold up close, but the new Kentucky clip is near at hand. Prices for Ohio and Pennsylvnaia No. 2. treble extra and above are 49aö8e : Maine at 54c; oombing and delaine at 5663 ; unwashed at 2437 1 2 ; low tub washed at 42c ; scoured at 60a95c ; noils at25a 15c ; super and extra pulled at 4O'(34c.
