VICTORIAN WHEAT SUPPLY.
The statistical authorities have not quite made up their minds whether the wheat surplus available for export has already left the colony or not. Millers declioe to pay the price asked by sellers, and consequently many of the mills are working short time. The " Age " considers that the balance remaining of' the new crop is nominally 1700 tons, but a considerable quantity of old wheat having been brought forward, there is little danger of absolute scarcity. On the other hand the "Argus" estimates that 26,000 tons are available for shipment.
