CHRISTCHURCH GRAIN MARKET.

(Per Press Association.)

CHRISTCHTJRCH, February 6.

Has given farmers a little more spare time and, consequently, more grain has been on offer during the, week. ' Wheat.—Few sales of wheat have been made, but the market has not yet settled down. A line of good milling has been sold at 8s 4d at country station, and, several offers of 3s 3d have been made, but not accepted. Oats.—Very little business is doing in oats, as merchants' say they cannot find any outlet for purchases they have already made, ..Barley.—Sales of prime malting barley have been made at 3s 6d to 3s 7d at country -stations. Buyers will not look at anything but'- prime: samples, and medium and inferior descriptions are practically unsaleable at present. Potatoes.—There is a rather more settled feeling in regard to the potato market. Holders are not quite so firm in their ideas as to values for forward delivery. The' market has, however, not really opened yet.
