The rep o rt shows th a t th e existing duties on m a n y classes of wool anid wool m a n u factures are prohibitory and greatly in excess of the differ­ ence in th e cost of production here and abroad. The duties are so arrang-, ed as to keep out of th e United States entirely wools of finer quali­ ties w h ich if im p o rted m ight be used t*\ displace th e cheap substitutes now em ployed.
