THE GARUEN ISLAND, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1, l16
THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
OK THE SUGAR QUESTION
Washington, D. C, Jan. 5, 1916,
Congressman Whit. P. Martin
todav gave out the following cor
respondence that has passed be
tween Congressman Fordney of
Michigan and himself upon the
subject of the Sugar Tariff.
As Mr. Fordney is the rankinR
Republican member of the Ways
and Means Committee, having
succeeded to the position formerly
occupied by the late Congressman
Sercno K. Payne, of New York,
the Michigan member speaks with
authority for the Republican mem
hers of the House in matters affect
ing the tariff.
This correspondence 'fcrew out
of the recent discussion o f the
sugar duties in the New Orleans
papers, which has been followed
with keen interest in Congressional
Congressman Martin in making
public the correspondence today
said that he was especially glad to
receive this statement from Mr.
Fordney at this time. "The Loui
siana sugar farmers", said Mr.
Martin, "are just preparing to
plant the next crop and this state
ment regarding the attitude of the
Republicans coming from such an
authoritative source, will go far
to dispel the doubts and uncer
tainties which have hung over the
sugar section for the past three
The Democrats are already on
record as favoring the continua
tion of the one cent duty. This
statement from Mr. Fordney ex
plaining the friendly altitude of
the Republican party should re
move the last vestige of doubt re
garding the course Congress will
pursue when the question of re
pealing the Free Sugar Clause
comes before it at an early date
MR. MARTIN'S LETTER.
January 4, 1916.
Hon. Joseph W. Fordney,
Washington, D. C.
My Dear Mr, Fordney:
I beg to herewith enclose an
editorial from the Daily States of
New Otleans, Louisiana, entitled
"Republicans and Sugar."
May I ask that you kindly read
the same and let me know whether
this editorial correctly indicates
the position that will be taken by
the Republican party at this ses
sion of Congress, on the question
of the retention of the tariff on
Thanking vou for any trouble
you may take in this matter,
I am, Yours very truly,
W. P. Martin
MR. FORDNEY'S REPLY.
Washington. D. C, Jan. 5, 1916
Hon. W. P. Martin.
House of Representatives,
Washington. D. C.
Mv Dear Judge:
I am just in receipt of your fav
or of the 4th instant, enclosing a
very remarkable editorial taken
from the "Daily States" of New
Orleans, Louisiana, entitled "Re
publicans and Sugar."
Appreciating as I do the deep
interest that vou, at the Represen
tative ot the largest of the sugar
growing Districts i n Louisiana,
take in this all-important question,
it affords me great pleasure to at
once set your mind at rest, by
stating that this editorial does not
correctly state the attitude that
the Republican party will take on
the proposed legislation looking
to the retention of the duty on
It is evident that this editorial
was inspired, not with th view of
stating facts, but with the view of
throwing consternation into the
ranks of the sugar farmers of your
State, thereby hoping, by such
unfair means, t o influence the
voters of your State,
The Republican party favors pro
tection to all American industries
that are in need of protection and J
has always favored giving thesug-i
ar industry adequate protection.
We do believe that there are
many other industries in t h i d
country besides sugar that shouls
be protected, and we would wel
come an opportunity to save these
industries from the ruinous effects
of the free trade policy of this ad
ministration, but God forbid that
the Republican party should be
willing to see the sugar industry
crushed out of existence, simply
because other industries are not
to be accorded the protection of
which they are justlv entitled.
It must be remembered that the
Republican party, in all its past
history, has given adequate pro
tection to the sugar industry of
Louisiana, and under that foster
ing policy, a great domestic indus
try in me jnoiui ana west une
beet sugar industry) has been de
veloped, in which the investment,
at the present time, is far in ex
cess of $100,000,000. and the do
mestic sugar industry in the North
and West, as well as in the South,
cannot survive without adequate
If the tariff question is opened
at this session of Congress, the
Republican party, as in duty bounds
will endeavor to save all industries
whose existence is now threatened
by reason of the effects of the Un
derwood Act, but i f legislation
should be confined to sugar alone,
then the Republicans will be only
too glad to extend a helping hand
to an industry that would be doom
ed without such legislation.
As I understand it, the Demo
cratic party proposes to retain the
present one cent duty upon sugar.
and as long as the war lasts, this
will enable that industry to live,
but without the conditions brought
about bv the European war, a one
cent duty would not be sufficient
to give adequate to this great in
I notice you have introduced a
bill ptoviding for the restoration
of the duty on sugar which was
carried in the Payne-Aldrich Act.
I do not know what the attitude
of the Democrats will be on this
measure, but if it is left to the
Republican party, I feel sure that
your bill will pass.
In conclusion permit me to ex
press mv approval of your district
sending you (a protectionist) to
With best wishes, I am,
Yours very truly,
(Signed) J. W. Fordney.

There is no smoke nor odor. Fried foods are free from
the taste of grease. They now are tasty and crisp. They
are made more digestible, for Crisco is all vegetable.
The same Crisco can be used to fry fish, onions, dough
nuts, etc., merely by straining out the food particles
after each frying.
Crisco gives pastry a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness and consistency.
It's uniform quality makes for uniform results.
Crisco gives richnessat smaller cost, It brings cake
