Messrs Dalgety and Co., Ltd., report as follows:-We held our weekly auburn sale of grain and produce at our stores to-day, when values ruled as under ; Oats. —There has been a strong inquiry for all lines coming under offer of late. The quantity, however, is siugll. Shippers have been operating more freely, with the result that; values are firm. We quote :—Prime milling, 2s 9d to 2s lOd: good to best feed. 2s 7d to 2s 8d ; medium to good, 2s 5d to 2s 6d per bushel (sacks extra). Wheat.—Business in this line is practii'ally at a standstill owing to tho want of supplies. Any little lots coming forward are meeting witli an excellent demand, and readily cleared on arrival. In the absence of 'supplies values quoted are nominal :—Milling wheat, 5s 6d to 5s 9d; fowl wheat, 5s to 5s 6d per bushel (sacks extra). Potatoes.—Supplies of prime frcshlypicked are not coming forward freely, and any lots answering this description are meeting with a good daman a at quotations. Medium and out-of-condi-tioncHl lines are more plentiful and difficult to place. \\e quote:—Prime freshly-picked tables, £4 to £4 10s; medium to good, £2 10s to £5 10s per ton (sacks in). Chaff.—Tile market has been barely supplied of late, and any consignments of prime oaten sheaf are meeting with a ready sale on arrival. ..ight and inferior chaff is not in quite as good a demand.
