" WOOL MARKET BOSTON, Jurie 19 (#»)— The Commercial Bulletin will say tomorrow: "While the market for wool keeps firm, there is a lessening of activity,' especially in thp west; where the pace has been rather swift. Prices paid in the west have been maintained on a firm basis, although without material change from last week. "The manufacturing position is not greatly changed as compared with a week ago. New business is naturally slower and spinners and coiribers find if impossible to secure replacement values fo; 1 their yarns and tops. "Foreign markets are quiet and a bit easier. "Mohair is quieter but very firm at last week's level."

Dealings were comparatively dull, as speculative interests stayed out of the market. Most of the business centered in the remaining old crop option and it made a slow, steady advance from its previous close to 11.92 to 12.07. Reports from New York that the cotton pool had completed liquidation of its July holdings gave the shorts plenty to think about. With actual cotton scarce and no chance of filling their contracts by purchasing for the pool,' they began evening up commitments by buying in July's. The remainder of the market lagged behind the old crop position, holding at small net gains as midday approached.
