Chicago, August 24.- The fight
against thojBUgar trust by tbo in-
aopenaeni rennones or mo country
has boon transferred to Chicago,
which will bo the base of oper
ations from now on. James H.
Post, representing tbe Mollenhau
cr Sugar Refining Company and
tho National Sugar Refining Com
pany, boih of New York city,
arrived in Cbioigo this evening
He stated that tbo trust is plan
ning au important move, and it is
this that independent refincriuR
are anxious to meet tbo minute it
is njnde. Mr. Post's companies
are two of tbe most powerful out
side of tbo trust, having a capacity
of ti iOO barrels a day out of k total
of 16,000 barrels, which is tbe
average daily capacity of all the
independent refineries combined.
Tbo coup planned by tbe truBt
ifl outlined as follows: The trust
oxpc-c'o to make au agreomout with
tho National Wholesale Grocers'
Association through the executive
committee, of that organization on
September 1st, by which it will
give to various members of tbo as
sociation, who are to agree to buy
exclusively from it, au extra re.
auction or rebate of one eighth of
n cent per pound, tbia rebate to be
paid through various Btate associ
ations The agreement will also
provi le, as at present designed,
that BaleH shall be made at pricts
named by the trust, from which
the dealeis will deduct three
sixteenths of a cont per pound. If
a bill is paid within ten days an
allowance of 1 per cent for cash
will bo mado.
If this plnu proves satisfactory
tbe trust will give its customers
within sixty days ouo eight of a
cent robate. This would make
sugar sell at a net price of $5 08
in Chicago, which would be the
conter for all transactions with
Middle Western buyers. Tbe
trust wauts to get control of tho
tnark-t through its rebate and
after it gets the market to mani
pulate it to its own advantage.
