DUNEDIN GRAIN MARKET.
Mr Donald Stronaoh reports as followi for the week ending Maroh 27:—
Wheat— Buyers are less inclined to operate freely merely purchasing to satisfy preeeat requirements. The quantity ooming to hand Is still limited, and should! the wet weather prevailing for the last few daya continue, deliveries with will be considerably hindered. The excitement existing m some of the Australian market* having somewhat toned down, our local boy -rflare holding off m the anticipation of lower prices ruling at no distant date* We quote prime velvet and Tuscan 4i 44 to 4j 6i, medium to good 3s 9i to 4s 3d, inferior to medium 3a to 3i 6d, ex store.
Oats — Owing to the old atooks being all bat cleared out, and the small supply of the new crop ooming forward, millers, especially In the early part of the week, have had to extend their limits In order to eecure aoffiolent to keep their machinery going. Shippers hare also had to give more, so as to be able to falfii tbelc engagements, and even at the moment all arrivals are readily placed bat buyers are not anxious to offer for future delivery. We quote prime milling 2j 6d to 2a 7sd| best short bright feed 2s 6d to 2s 6d, medium 2s 44 to 2s 3d, ex store* Gtood long Tar tartans fit for seed are Inqalred for by shippers. Barley — There (s no material alteration m the tone of th<a market. Malstere don't seem to be very much Inclined to do bust* JI6BB yet, and so far only a very few transactions have taken plaoe. We qaote nominally 3s 9d to 4s for prime malting, and 3s to 3 1 6d for medium, ex store. *"
