Corn Exchange Report.

Corn Exchange report for the week ending Friday, June sth, 1890.: —In the absence of special enquiries for any line, our report may seem but a reiteration of previous remarks, namely, grain still coming forward in greater bulk than can be coped with by the storage department in Lyttelton. We trust that, the recommendation of the Chamber of Commerce will ha«redue weight with the Railway Commissioners; so that as little delay as possible may be experienced by farmers and merchants in getting produce to its destination whether for storage or shipment. The iwheat. market has not been int fluenced to any great extent by London 1 cables, values remaining as they were, or | nearly so, last week. Oats are still without i animation, buyers and sellers not being keen i! to do business. Barley <,Kas little jormp enquiry. Malsters are fairly, well supplied and only purchase where there seems a prospect , of holding for another season, while no orders

intercolonially can be noted of anyconßequence. Beans and peas—Only a few sales in the, former and a slight enquiry for blues have come under our notice-at quotations.
