Excerpt from Report Upon Wool and Manufactures of Wool

To commence with the raw material, the first impression made upon an American manufacturer by an observation of the woollen manufactures of Europe, as displayed at the Exposition, is the immeasurable advantage which the woollen manufacturer of Europe has in the command of an unlimited supply of wool, and other raw material of every variety, free of duty. The policy of the modern governments of Europe, unrestrained by any regard for the opinions or prejudices of agriculturists so controlling here, is first and foremost to develop the manufactures of their several countries. Freedom from duties on raw material and breadstuffs is but one mode of protection. The necessity for duties on wool as a measure of encouragement to the wool-grower has passed away. Sheep husbandry in Europe could not be extended by protective duties, as all the land that could be profitably devoted to this purpose is already occupied. England has one sheep to one and three-quarters of an acre of land, while Ohio and Vermont have one to four and a half acres, New York one to six and a half acres, Iowa one to twenty-four acres, and the whole United States one to fifty-seven acres. The perfection to which the leading varieties of European wools has attained removes them from all competion, and renders protective duties unnecessary. No lustrous combing wools can compete with the Lincoln, Leicester, and Cotswold wools of England; no clothing wools with the Saxon and Silesian wools of Germany; no soft combing wools with those of the Rambouillet stock of France. The culture of the latter wools was developed by protection until their excellence relieved them from competition, and even the agriculturists of France assented to the abolition of the duty on wool. The great centre of distribution for the great part of the wool of the world, not consumed at home, is England, the distribution being favored by her warehousing system. All the wool manufacturers of Europe are gathered at the annual sales at London. The European supply of raw material constitutes but an inconsiderable portion of the consumption of Europe. The importations have increased with marvellous rapidity.
