WOOL MARKET BOSTON, (ff) -- U. S. department o£ " o aroun - scoure ass or averse to short French combing length. Holders of belter than average French Lamson Brothers Market Letter MARKET REVIEW Wheat--There was some uneasiness in .iverpool cables attributed to profit tak- ng and our market opened lower in con- cqucnce. with a fair amount of selling omine into the July future. This selling ended to widen the May-July difference omewhat and the spread figures were round 14% compared with 14 Wednes- lay. There was also a good dip in \Vin- itpeg early but hardened later and to- vard the close prices climbed, closing bout ic a bushel belter than Wednesday light's final quotations. The United kingdom again took Australian wheat, licrc was not much rain in our south- vest over night and some unscttlcment s indicated for Kansas and Nebraska for he next 24 hours. The spring wheat bell eccfved good moisture. Minnesota, North Dakota and the mountain areas oE Mon- ana received quite heavy snows. The ·ase with which wheat came back Thursday Indicates a belief lhat good ;xport sales of wheat to Europe wil" lick up again, and the constant!} itrengthcning position of the Winnipeg market tends to prevent much of a decline in our wheat prices. Corn--Corn prices moved within narrow range Thursday, early there were some spreading operations between the different futures and May corn was akcn locally by cash Interests. Later commission houses sold on the advance Trade as a whole was rather quiet 3roomha]l says that old crop supplies of corn in the Argentine are being rap rily reduced and that the weather is favorable at the present time for harvesting nnd conditioning of the new crop. Th carry over of the old corn In the nev season starting April 1 will be small The fact that considerable corn is being oaded from both, public and private elevators indicates that the daily receipts are small and hardly sufficient to supply the local demand. Commission house, sold oats on the opening influenced bj lower wheat prices and the action o this grain appears to be influenced more or less readily by advances or decline! In wheat.
