HIGH PRICES. Tbe foufch and final wool sale of the 1914 15 series was held on Monday in tbe Alexandra Hall, when a fairly , largo catalogue was submitted, the joint; offering of tbe seven firms taking part in the aggregating 6702 bales, compared with 2128 bales at the corresponding sale last year and 5490 in 1913. Generally speaking the clips offered were in fairly satisfactory condition, although naturally the average quality was below that of the earlier sales, when some of tne cboisest clips of the province were brought under tbe hammer, Much of the wool was fairly heavy in the grease, some suffered through discoloration, while the presence of extraneous matter proved detrimental to selling value of quite a number of lines. However, taking ail those points into consideration the general average of the wool compared favourably with the offerings at any closing Bale during recent years. The total offerings at the Christchurch series of wool sales, which closed- yesterday were 55,349 bales against 54,814 bales at the correspond* ing sale last year an increase of 535 bales, the offerings easily constituting on record. There was a full attendance of buy-1 ers, including representatives of tbe various woollen mills of the Dominion in addition to which there were the usual contingent of Bardford buyers, while on this occasion Continental firms were not unrepresented. Al though the sale was a quiet one, the competition was very firm, more especi ally for cross and three quarter bred, which was in strong request, and which realised prices altogether in ex Cfls.-* of previous values in Christchurch during tbe season... The NZ Farmers' Co-op Associa tion report the following Peninsula sales :—Craw and Cborlton, Chorlton, 30 bales crossbred at 13d ; C. P. Kay, Little Akaroa, 1 bale three-quarter-bred ewe at 12 d. Messrs H Mateon & Co. report the following Peninsula pales :—Mrs J. Ooop, Aiaahua, at 12Jd ; B. E. Lelievre, Akaroa, at 12d.
