Lewiston wheat prices.
Club Selling at 53c, Bluestem at 58
Lewiston, July 25. The quotations
for the opening of the grain market
wee made yesterday." Wheat Is quot
ed at 53 cents for club and 5S cents
fo." bluestem; barley has been materi
ally advanced and Is quoted at f7V
cents for feed barley and 75 cents for
brewing; oats changed at 90 cents,
and flax has been advanced from 90
to 92 cents.
It Is probable that no further
clfanges will be made until the de
livery of the new grain commences
and the exporters enter the market.
At the present time the coast export
ers are entirely inactive but a very ac
tive season is expected as soon as the
ninrket opens. Conditions are consid
ered very favorable for good prices
and a very prosperous year Is pre
dicted for tho farming sections of the
