Never before baa there been such a
drain on thia market for export flour.
Never before have tnillara had the altua
tlou ao muoh In their control aa at thia
tlme, They can eell every-barrel of
flour they hope to manufacture"for the
next six months at prices, that would
ordinarily aeem impossible.
So Insistent la the export demand for
flour at this time that the Chinese and
, Japanese ara selng which can outbid
the other In getting supplies. A. short
time ago millers were freely offering
their export brands of Oour at 88.881
a barrel but now the buyers of the
Orient are themselves offering ls.10,
ana somstimss more, for thia same
grade of stock. So enormous has been
the demand, however, that practically
all the regular export quality bat been
sold, and recently some of the smaller
exporters have been selling their better
grade of local flour for Oriental use. As
a general thing, the Orient takes the
poorest grade of flour it can get. Just
so the price is right. In the eaat the
mlllera grind out what la called "Red
Dog" flour, .or third grade. On the Pa
cific coaat, however, there la nothing
ground under second grade, and that la
tha reason why eaatern millers can
sometimes undersell thoaa of the Pa
clfio coast, even after absorbing the
rail freight charges across the conti
nent --- -.--,- - i. . . .
While export vslues of flour have
shown enormous advances of late, there
has been a tendency , among millers to
hold down the price of local Brand
Just at this time millers are doing very
little encouraging to sell flour to either
the local or export trade, the question
at this time being not to sell the flour,
but to get the wheat to grind. It Is a
proposition of first catch tha hare. ,
