WHEAT AND FLOUR
Wo have not learned whether any wheat has been uncovered as tho result of the Government circular of the 11th inst., but a report has reached us that a considerable proportion, of tho ground wheat now being consumed in Dunedin has come from Timarn. The .innouiicement that tho Government arc endeavoring to borrow 100,000 bushels of wheat from* Australia is satisfactory in view of the feet that the Canadian shipment ifi likely to be delayed: Should the parcel bo secured, it is thought that the bulk of it should conic to Dunedin, as the Northern and Invercaxgill millers have sufficient for thou- immediate requirements. In the meantime, the local millers, have closed until over '.ho holidays. . The. Foodstuffs Commissioners paid a visit to Dunedin early in the week, but, so far a* we can ascertain, none of the millers wore interviewed nor was any information a*l;ed of them. The Commif.Mon returned to Wellington last Tuesday. Wo understand thut ih« have bought 60 tuns of Auckland Hour, and this is now on its way down to Dunedin 1*0"- distribution amoturst the local bakers. There is a little of the last parcel etill undistributed.
