Sin, — :The quarrel between the squatters and the wool buyers, as to an allowance for ?draft, has assumed a more important phase ? than it was conjectured it would present. At the sales which took place in Geelong last, week there were only a few bales sold, whilst the balance was passed in unsold, the brokers not being -at liberty to grant any draft, and the buyers refusing' to bid. It is time that some clear and definite custom were estab lished in this draft business, for it has been unsettling the minds of airconnectcd with the trade for some timo back; It would not be a matter -of much moment, I should tlimk, ?whether draft were allowed or not, if the 'principle were once acknowledged either , /way, for buyers would purchase with this in mind ; but so long as we have one or two , following one course, and a large number adopting another, there...
