Editor Aröus:- I wish to ask your readers if they have noticed what a stunuer Capt. Allen gave a gentleman in his audience at Britton, while discussing the tarifï question on wool. I noticed in the course.of his argument a voice from the audience asks, "whatis the matter with raw material." Capt. Alien- " Do you cali wool raw material ? " A voice-" Of course it is raw material." Capt. Alien- "Well,my friend you are not a farmer and do not know anything about it or about the labor it costs. i have already proved it is not raw material. Wliy the people of Michigan have paid millions of dollars to improve their wool, and what has been the result?" Well, what has been the result V Why, the Capt. has our Hoeks all clothed with manutactured ileeces. Henee he must have abided with the flocks until he has seen what he really believes to be raw material. Now it is no more than fair that he tells us farmers how it looks. These arguments all go to prove that we ought to seud him to congress- that's so-he's so knowing. JtSut, gentlemen, he must come to our views of raw material before I can support him for a corüotation üddler.
