nipeg cables yesterday and the fore
cast of larger Russian shipments this
week and larger world's shipments
other than America. The American
government was slightly bearish and

These potent factors, however, only
served to cause momentary depres

Corn firmness in American cables
yesterday were offset here by the con

Later there, was a further decline on
the weakness in spot heavy arrivals
for three days as officially reported
and the weakness of Danubian offers.
There was some covering at this
level in December.

VERIFY LOSSES IN
Department Finds That Only
Winter Wheat, Maturing Be
fore Drought, Has Gained.
October figures of the department
of agriculture make but little change
from the findings of a month ago
when it was known that all crops had
suffered from the devastating heat
and drought of the last summer. Only
one . crop, winter wheat which ma-tfJ-V
before the drought had as
sumed its greatest terrors, Is found
to be larger than that of last year.
Spring wheat was harvested later and
Losses of 1,048.000,000 bushels in
corn and oats offset the gain of
23.000,000 bushels in winter and spring
wheat and left a shortage of more
than a billion bushels besides. The
food and feed shortage la further em
phasized by the shortage of 102,000,000
bushels in potatoes, 60,000,000 bush
els of barley and 10,000,000 tons of
The surplus of winter wheat can
go but a small distance in making
up the shortage in other . food and
feedstuffs, particularly if the latter
continue to rule high in price.
Production of the leading crops as
indicated in the October report as com
pared with the final official figures of
last year is shown below:
Spring wheat 242.714,000
Winter wheat 510,51,000
Total wheat 753,233,000
Corn '. .'.2,373.000,000
Hay, tons 63,460,000
Spring wheat 330,348,000
Winter wheat 399,919,000
Total wheat 730,267,Q00
Hay, tons 72,691,000
As compared with the September
estimates of the department, the wheat
crop is practically unchanged, corn
has gained 22,000,000 bushels and oats
have gained 56,000,000 bushels.
