MONDAY, OCT. 26, 1885.
For domestic purposes, quality
rather than quantity should bo 60iight
for in sugar. The intrinsic value
of u, pound of hiigar is in propoition
tn its Mvcetucss, but tho grail major
ity of consumers in the United
States, especially those in the Jfoith
and West, select their sugars by
color rather than taste, nnd pay the
higliest market price for an inferior
article. The Creoles of Louisiana
me well educated on sugar questions,
and gcneaally Ufec plantation lefiued
or brown sugars, but. not a low of
onrhomepcoplc have been captivated
by the appearance ol tue regular
squares of so-called cut loaf (cube3)
sugar for sale in the groceries, and
use this sham sugar to sweeten tea.
This stuff is dextrose (starch
sugar), made by crystallizing glucose
and molding it in little squares to
counterfeit the cut-loaf sugar of
commerce. This fraudulent sugar
is put upon the market as genuine,
when its value us sweetening, com
pared witli cane sugar, is less than
one-third. Leaving out the question
of the doubtful wholesomcncss of
glucose, it would therefore seem that
persons of ordinary intelligence
would discard it as a measure of
common-sense household economy.
One pound of Louisiana sugar will
sweeten more cups of tea and coffee
than three nounds of cubes. If the
pound of imitation cut-loaf Mignr is
worth 10 cents, then the pound of
Louisinna sugar is worth more than
The manufacture of glucose sirup
and sugar effects in the same way
the sugar planters of Louisiana and
the sorghum planters of the North
as the manufacture of oleomargarine
butter affects the dairymen.
There has been prohibitory legis
lation against the manufacture of
oleomargarine in most of the North
ern States, but no attempt to curtail
the manufacture of glucose.
As a matter of fact glucose is no
more sugar than oleomargarine is
butter, and the manufacture of one
is as baneful to the sorghum interest
as the other is to the dairy interest.
In the North and AVest genuine
sugars and sirups arc almost un
known. The sugar and sirup of
commerce is largely adulterated and
generally so deftly mixed with glu
cose that it is difllcult to tell it from
the genuine article.
The cane and sorghum interest
should demand legislation on this
subject. The evil might be reached
by a law prohibiting food adultera
tion. It is not desired to prohibit
the manufacture of glucose, but it
should not be sold as sugar.
It behooves sugar planters to
advertise Louisiana sugar to the
people of the United States. Instead
of shipping their sugar in hogsheads,
from which it is romoved by the
wholesale grocer, mixed and sold in
other packages, the sugar planter
should send his sugar and sirup to
market in neat baircls and half
barrels, plainly branded with his
plantation mark. It is but reason
able to suppose that the better
article, brought to the attention of
consumers, would find ready sale at
It is whispered that large quanti
ties of bogus sirup are brought down
the river to New Orleans and mixed
there with plantation molasses and
put upon the market as genuine.
The interests oi producer, con
sumer and public health alike de
mand that this fraudulent traffic
Louisiana sugar competes with be
tose (beet sugar), which constitutes
the greater part of sugar imported
to the United States. The sweeten
ing value of one pound of Louisiana
su"ar is equivalent to one and a half
of "beet sugar. When a pound of
beet sugar is worth 10 cents, a
pound of cane sugar is worth 15
cents. These are important facts
and should be made known to con
sumers. In the present uncertain
condition of the sugar interest of the
United States, the planters should
not only endeavor to produce the
greatest amount per acre, with the
best machinery, but they should
insist that the distinctive character
of their sugar should be preserved
in original packages small enough to
reach the consumer intact.
When their sugars come in com
petition with inferior and fraudulent
sugars thny should demand better
prices, jrcw Orleans U'imc-Dcmo-

THE undersigned, a Committee of Di
'rcctors of the Equitable Life As
surance Society of tho United States,
appointed to formulate the views of the
Board on the advantages offered by tho
Society to the public, report:
1st Tho Society issues all the approv.
cd forms of assurance, including Ordi
nary Life, Endowment and Tontine po
licies. It is immaterial to tho Directors
which form of policy is taken by in
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash divi
dends and a surrender value; arc Indis
putable after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
3d The premiums on a Tontine po
licy nro tho same as on the Ordinary
Life, but, while tho latter is only pay.
nblo in tho event of death, the holder of
the Tontine policy has the right to draw
the wholo of the reserve and the accu
mulated profits in cash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years aro past,
he can, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, secure these
4th Experience shows that the return
paid in cash on maturing Tontino po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho average cost of the
assuranco will be only about the interest
on tlio premiums.
Cth Tontino policies, like others, nre
paid in full in tho event of death at any
lime during the term of tho policy, and
aro incontestable after three years, and
payablo immediately after due proof of
Cth Experience bIiows that tho mor
tallty is lower among Tontino policy,
holders, as the better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is a consider
able source of profit.
7th Tontino policies will ho made
non-forfcitable under tho laws of the
State, if so desired at the time Iho as
surance is effected.
