TARIFF This question is now re
ceiving consideration at the hands of
the Ways and Means Committee of
the house. We subjoin a few extracts
bearing on the Sugar question which
may be of interest.
PREPARING A TARIFF BILL,
In beginning the work of putting into
shape a tariff bill the Committee on
Ways and Means is confronted with a
serious financial situation. It is ad
mitted that at least $60,000,000 00 of
additional annual revenue must be pro
vided to meet the ordinary current ex
penses of the Government, and unless
the sinking fund law is suspended or
repealed the deficit will amount to
over $100,000,000 00. How this is
to be done is the question, the Com
mittee must answer by its work.
It is stated authoritatively that the
bill to be reported will embrace a gen
eral scheme of reducing duties. Chair
man Wilson has been quoted as saying:
"The bill will fulfill in every respect
the declaration of the National Demo
cratic platf firm on the subject."
A member of the committee was
asked if the committee would adopt the
suggestion of David A. Wells to in
crease the internal revenue taxes.
"We must have more money from
some source," he answered, "and I do
not know any better way to raise it than
by that scheme."
A prominent member of the House,
not on the Ways and Means Commit
tee, but whose position gives his ex
pressions much weight, discussing the
probable action of the committee, said:
"Why couldn't a small duty be laid on
sugar? It would provide fifteen or
twenty millions of additional revenue
without seriously affecting the great
body of consumers and would enable
the sugar planters of l.ousiana, for
whom I have much sympathy, to con
tinue in business. Two or three items
of that kind in the bill would go far
toward solving the question of covering
the deficiency in the revenues. I have
no authority to speak for any one in
the matter, but I believe this will be
Representative Wilson declines to set
a date for the introduction of the bill,
but estimates that it will not be ready
by November tst. A month later is
believed to be near the time when it
may be expected.
An impression prevails that the 1st
of January, 1895, will be agreed upon
by the committee as the date for putting
the law into effect.
TARIFF TINKERING liK.Mut KA 1 S PRO
POSE TO REPEAL THE SUGAR BOUNTY.
Washington, October 6 The
Democratic members of the Ways and
Means Committee acknowledge that
some difficulties have now been reached.
The framework of the bill now before
the majority is understood to be
draft submitted by Secretary Carlisle.
It is also understood that it has been
definitely determined that the sugar
bounty shall be repealed. A proposi
tion has been made to place a duty of
half a cent a pound on raw sugars, or
to take off the same on refined sugars
It is generally believed by Democratic
members, not only of the t.ommittee
but of the House, that an increase of
internal revenue taxes is part of the
administration plan. Another feature
is a suggestion that the necessary
money for pensions should be a separ
ate fund issued in some special manner
An income tax and a direct tax have
both been suggested. Members of th
Committee on Invalid Pensions have
rtceived an intimation that they may
have to act on suggestions of this kind
Sugar Trust This gigantic mo
nopoly is receiving a general overhaul
ing at the hands of the newspapers
We give herewith an extract from the
Journal 0 Lommerce of New ork
which shows up the protits made by
THE EASTERN SUGAR TRADE
Our total imports of raw sugar for the
fiscal year ending June 30, 1893
amounted to 1,638,612 short tons, of
which 130,000 tons were imported at
San Francisco, leaving importations
elsewhere of 1,508,61210ns. To this
must be added the Southern crops of
200,000 tons, making the total annual
supply of 1,800,000 tons manipulated
Iron the Sugar Trust's offices in New
York. We have already shown how
the small Western business of 130,000
tons can net, at the rate of $6,500,000
profits to the Trust on the basis ot
prices quoted there this month ; let us
now lot k at the profits elsewhere.
To do this it is necessary to com
pare the prices of raw and refined
sugar, which we take, haphazard, on
different dates, as follows

I'his exhibit shows us that only once
this year was the difference between
raw sugar of 96 test and granulated
sugar as low as I I 16 cents, and that
during the last three months the differ
ence between the two has been steadily
maintained at 1? 1 cent--, while the
average difference for the whole nine
nonths has been 1 . ( 2 S cents. I lits ts
the correct, and in fact the only, basis
upon which to estimate the profits of
the Sugar Trust. It has always been
given out, and is generally taken for
granted, for no other reason than that
the Trust has said so, that the cost of
refining and marketing raw sugar was
I h of a cent per pound. Hut this we
believe to be excessive, because recent
keen competition between refiners led
to a closer scrutiny of the expense ac-
ount, with the result of curtailing dis
bursements. Moreover, there have
been improved and labor-saving de
vices and machinery added from tune
to time which tend to greater economy.
nd the fact that the entire output is
in one hand, so to speak, checks every
item of needless and useless waste,
both in the buying, selling and hand
ling of sugar.
Under the circumstances as they
now exist, we decline to accept cent
as the minimum cost of manufacture,
and believe, with what we have set
nth as good reasons for our belief,
Dial in Kastern refineries it does not
xceed )'i cent per pound, faking,
therefore, the difference of 1.428 cents
per pound between the market price of
raw and the maiket price of refined
sugar in the East, and allowing for the
various discounts given to the trade,
which would bring the difference down
t 1. 1 48 cents per pound, we have the
actual average net profit of .648 cent
upon every pound of sugar refined and
sold. Applying this to the 1,700,000
tons of sugar manipulated annually
from the Eastern office of the Trust we
got a proht ot "640 cent on 3,400,000-
000 pounds, or a total gross profits
amounting to $22,032,000 00 annually.
Add to this the $6,500,000 00 of
Western profits and we have an ag
gregate of $28,532,000 00 that is clean
profit to the Most arbitrary monopoly
that the country ever saw or nut up
I'he actuat value of all the sugar re
finery properties is reported to be about
$20,000,000, so that if this estimate be
orrect the people are taxed for the
benefit of this one trust every year
about as much as the entire properties
are worth. Apparently this tax upon
the people is too per cent, on the cash
value of the property; and the trust
makes the people pay for its property
every year. The entire stock of the
sugar trust, with all its water added, is
:apitalized at $fcs, 000,000, so that Un
people are taxed nearly 30 per cent,
every year upon the entire watered
sti ck of the concern, or 100 per cent
on its actual value.
Another paint that should be noted
in the variation in the prolus 01 the
nugar 1 rust, which have rangeil this
year between 1 1-16 and 1 5 8 cents per
pound. II il paid the Migar I rust to
refine and sell sugar in June at a differ
ence ot only 1 1 16 cents between tht
cost of raw and the selling price of re
lined sugar, what occasion has then
been during the last three months t
maintain a difference of it; cents?
And these are by no means all the
profits of the Sugar Trust. It is known
as a money lender on Wall street.

estimated that a saving of $600 per
