Winnipeg, Aug. 15-There are three or four buyers for every carload of cash wheat offered, and prices are stiffening in consequence of this situation. This morning quotations for No. 4 and No. 6 advanced lc above yesterday's close. Buyers found it impossible to fill their requirements. With a rising market it is natural that holders of lower grades were disinclined to sell so long as there la prospect of their advantage being improved. Ontario millers are in the market for milling grades, but the government agent is getting the bulk of the offerings which are very small. Early in the session there was a fair de- j mand for oats at prices above yester-1 day's quotations for the better grades, I but later, on freer offerings there was i a set back. I Oats showed only fractional flue- i tuntlons, transactions being around i yesterday's figures throughout the I session. The -May options were neglected. Good crop weather Is having a bearish effect on the market. The prohibition of. trading for future delivery of wheat on the Ameri-j can exchanges will not" have any i effect on the trade here, as there has I been little done at Chicago for Winnipeg account recent trading 'being largely confined to the coarse grains. It is thought that trade in these cereals will not be interfered with. Reports from Chicago today indicated that interest in the wheat trade there centred almost wholly on guesses as to what price the government agents would set for transactions under the new control rules. Winnipeg cash wheat closed at $2.40 for No. 1 and No. 2 Nor., and lc higher for all grades below No. 3 Nor., except feed.
