FURTHER DECLINE IN VALUES. Good Clearances Effected.

A marked decline, estimated ,at from 10 to 15 per cent:, from the levels of the first Perth wool sale of the current selling sea son, held on September 9, occurred yester

day at the second sale of the season. Bro kers offered approximately 23,000 bales, and, on the whole, good clearances were effected. * Since the first sale, Bradford 04's.tops have fallen from 28d. to 24d. per lb.-;' so th'at wool of that quality yield ing 60 per cent', is now 2d. per 1b. cheaper. Best spinning wool of 70's quality was most in demand, and the values for this. class of wqdl'did 'not recede to the same extent ?a those for some -of the lower counts. Short lamb's', wool, inferior and stained pieces, .and locks were neglected, and could be sold' only at extremely low prices. Good buying strength was in evidence through out, for 'suitable .descriptions, and compe tition was well spread. Values in Lon don^ and-'at- various Australian selling centres , having declined,: the arrival during the Veek^end of ,. a larger number' of buy ing- orders than was' anticipated was par ticularly^ pleasing. .Values. were equal to current- Eastern State quotations. For. Continental . types, competition was forthcoming front France,. Germany, Bel gium .'aid.^italr. --^Yprkshire's representa tives ,h.eld..heaVy .orders for top-making tvpes.s'-Theiselection .was generally more Buited toj'them. than that of the' previous ?ale, ' wh'en^fherb'u]k of the offerings con sisted-of'Kbrth-Wcst' wool, more or less of Continental types. Australian mills and XJnit-d States buyers who required stylish spinning- -descriptions, also provided com petition.'- *? Disbussing the sale, a promi nent broker said that the results were most depressing; Prices had ^fallen to the lowest level for 30 Years. The top ?price' of the day was 13jd., ob tained by Elder, Smith and Co. for bales of AA wethers' 'wool of superfine quality from the Springs Pastoral Co's. Curbur Station, on the Murchison. The next sale will be held on October 27. In the fol lowing brokers' reports the minimum price quoted/ for all districts is Sd. — West ral Ian Farmers, Ltd. AVESTKALLAJT FARMERS. LTD., report: — We offered approximately. 2,450 bales. The selection was principally dratoh from the agricultural dis tricts, and included some attractive and'woll frrown lines, though many were not eo sound us m expected.' and. carried thin, dusty backs. One or two clips were from the eastern Koldtields and the Murchison.' 'Our tup price was Hid., ?ccured lor Tullooli and Co., Leonora, for 38 bales. Since the opening eale in September, bnt particularly during last week, disquieting re ports have been coming to hand from tha London and Eastern States markets, indicating that values were falling heavily, and these were borno Out by the Kile. ' The decline since Sep tember has ? been fully 10 to 15 per 'cent. for ' fleece and pieces, but short, inferior and wasty lines are very irregular and difficult to sell. Owing to the fact that the Eastern States have had some droughty- years, there lias been an accumulation of nhort-flbred material in nmnufaoturiug centres. The ? result is that lodes, crutchings, and short lambs in particular are. at - an almost unsaleable level. Dags, heavy locks, crutchings,- aud pen sweep ings* are best held back on the farm until next year ii nece&uiry, us the prices realised will not pay freight and expenses. The sale- was up to expectations. Competition was good, and we se cured the average of our valuations, except for iuferior lines and' the short-fibred wools pre yiously. mentioned.

There was a full room of buyers and competition was generally keen, with the exception of low-grade, unat tractive sorts which were difficult of sale. Com pared with our first tale, values were from 10 per cent, to 15 per cent, lower, with strong de mand at this level, and parallel with those prices rulinir at other selling centres durinir last week.

Yorkshire an-.l French buyers were (ho chief opcTiitors. uhil-' a fair amount was bought for Ttaly.N but Ger wan competition was restricted to a few lots of very fine Merinos. There was also a demand from America for stylish spinners' types of Merino. We sold 80 per cent of our catalogue at auction, and hope to clear up th« withdrawn wools quickly, ai there is at the moment no indication what

ever that a recovery of values will take place. It is most unfortunate that the market should fall right at the commencement of the season, when manufacturers' stocks should be relatively ?low. This does not augur well for a' rise in the immediate future, when the large weight of Australian wool comes on to _ the market.

'GOLDSBROUGH, MORT and CO. report. — We offered an average selection of 1,084 bales, drawn chiefly from the agricultural and Great Southern districts with a sprinkling of clips from the Murchison and Eastern Goldfields. Since the Sep tember sale reports from overseas and the East ern .States have indicated a decided fall in the market, and this was fully reflected in the values obtained. Competition was good, and came prin cipally from Bradford to whom the bulk of our catalogue was suited, the Continent also being in evidence on lines particularly suitable to its requirements. Compared with1 our last sale aver age to good Merinos showed a decline of from 10 per cent, to 15 per cent., shabby and low yielding sorts showing a good deal of irregularity and were being difficult of sale. Lambs' wool o'f short length and inferior quality, locks and crutchings met with little demand and were al most unsaleable. These descriptions constituted the greatest portion of the withdrawals.
