Liverpool, Oct. 10. Wheat opened lower; influenced by the weaker Win 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 advices from . Argentine continue fa vorable with liberal Canadian offers. These potent factors, however, only served to cause momentary depres sion and following the opening there was covering by shorts with good sup port in October, improved demand for Manitobas and cagoes are more stead fly held. Corn firmness in American cables yesterday were offset here by the con tinued liberal Argentine shipments. 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 OCTOBER REPORT i 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 was short 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 hay. 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: 1913. bu.
