Corn Exchange Report.

The following is the Corn Exchange report for the week ending Friday^ May 2nd, 1890. On the week there is a somewhat better tone noticeable, in wheat, owing probably more to the depletion of stock than to any marked increase in value. Much difficulty is experienced in getting tf ucks at country stations and this where shipment by, a particular vessel is required means perhaps the loss of a market through the department endeavour to give precedence, to • shipping orders. Storage is difficult to obtain in Ly ttelton, as even with the large output the grain coming forward is apparentlytestingthe Port's storage capacity to the utmost. With respect to oats and barley last week's remarks apply. -In peas and beans the market is listless, an exception must be made however, in the demand for Prussian Blue peas for culinary purposes. Grass seed, no demand can be looked for until Spring when" as stocks will be short prices will be maintained. Potatoes—Derwents, business has been done at 40s per ton at country ' stations, but buyers seem disinclined to operate except at a concession on this price. Dairy produce unaltered.
