Corn Exchange Report.

- . Isf' The following is the Corn Exchange report for week ending Friday, May 16tlv: Complaints from farmers reach us almost daily as to the difficulty ■of obtaining trucks for the transit of grain to LyttelI' ton. ■ A farmer "whose letter appears in Thursday's "Press," shows the troubles a producer in his district has to put up with. It does seem rather hard lines to have to wait at a station from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. on the off chance of getting trucks. Seriously this method,-or rather want', of 'method in!'working the lines should be enquired into. The wheat market is firm ■at quotations, the latest English cables ..having ..given strength .to the enquiry.; millers have advanced the price of flour. Oats—Except really prime heavy milling (say 481bs to the bushel) are neglected. Barley still continues a drug, only an extensive prime parcel tempting buyers. Beans—The London market being the only outlet, values are ruled, by home prices, and they do not allow a margin over our quotations for shipment. PeaspBlue Prussians of extra quality are most in demand, whilst feed sorts see but little business: •*' Potatoes (derwents). —Owing to : the-extensive shipments to Sydney f ron) all parts of the .colonies prices there have given way, and this has had a bad effect on the market here, where values ihjav.e, receded. Dairy Produce—The same dulness prevails. both in cheese and butter that has been noticeable during the past few weeks. , The following are our quotations for the week :— Wheat—Tuscan, 3a','to 3s Id; Pearl, 2s lOd to 2s lid ; Hunters, 2s 9d ; chick wheat, whole, 2s 4d ; broken, 2s to 2a 2d.
