CHRISTCHURCH WOOL SALES,
Before the sales commenced at Christchurch yesterday tho chairman of the Christchurch Wool Brokers’ Association read tho following notification, which is the same as that adopted by tho Australian wool brokers :—“Auctioneers will only accept the bids of a buyer on the express condition that such buyer is not acting on behalf of a principal in Germany or Austria. The auctioneers reserve "to themselves the right of cancelling any purchase made in violation of this condition.” Although the sale could not ho said to he a brisk one, there was no question as to tho keen demand for wool, as was evidenced by tho high prices that were realised for all classes but merino wool. There was very solid bidding by several Bradford buyers, who took the bulk of the wool, and, besides these and two local buyers, it was seldom that other names were called. Only a, small amount of wool was secured by tho local woollen mills, although bol.i Dunedin ami Wellington mills were re presented. All classes of cross-bred woo!, from tine to coarse, came m for a share i>f the demand, half-bred and three-qmmer-brod selling particularly well; and even sconrings. such as locks and erntchim,?. were not neglected. Ihe range of values was higher than at tho best sales of last season. LONDON WOOL SALKS. Messis Dnlgefy and Co.. Ltd., report having received the following cable from their head office, dated London.
