LONDON WOOL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser — 3 July 1875

. LONDON WOOL ltEPORT. Messrs. Helmuth Schwartz ami Co. say : The position of the market remains un changed. Opening rates aro fully sustained, and there is, if anything, an increase in the animation. While for the bulk of the wools the best March rates continue an accurate standard, some descriptions sliow an itn provemont. This is the case with oxtra fine Port Philip fleece, of which somo flocks lfavo been sold with good results ; also with the better class of Sydney fleece, and in fact generally with wools possessing breed and quality. The condition of the fine merino trade in France is still very depressed, find manufacturers arc not without stocks of fine wool- But there is more disposition among them to operate than there was in March, partly probably because the rates have been found moderate, and partly also because this scries.offers the last supply of this class of wool for the present season. The bulk of greasy, scourod and fleece descriptions solls^ withoutrchange, but v...
