High Class Grocers Phone 525 Winnipeg, Aug. l.-'-Followlng the cleaning up of July business there was a noticeable bearish tendency in the market today, improved crop weather and southern market conditions showing an influence in the local situation in view of the present trading restrictions, however, fairly good business is being done for future delivery, October wheat was down again, but October and December oats remained fairly steady around yesterday's close quotations, though fluctuations during the trading were inclined to be easier. October flax, which opened 5c below yesterday and declined further during the session rallied toward the close and gained 3c on yesterday's close. A prominent eastern export firm was a prominent buyer in the cash market along with the government agent. Other buying interests were also represented. There was a good demand for low grade oats but the higher grades were not much sought for. Prices were a little off. There was no demand for the better qualities of barley, but buyers were out for the lower classes. Wheat buyers were chiefly in evidence and prices remained steady, flax was steady. Winnipeg cash wheat closed unchanged, October closed 2%c lower. Oct. oats closed %c lower, Dec. %c lower, Oct. flax closed 3c higher and December 3c up.
