Germany's Beet Sugar Men
Say We Are Ruining Them
Concerns Unite In Memorial to the Imperial
Government Denouncing the Recent
"PERIL THE GREATEST
Overwhelming Advantages in Favor of the Cane Sugar Indus
try of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the
Philippines Arc Reviewed.
Washington, May 25. Observance
of the convention signed at Drusscls
by the nations of Europe, with tho ex
ception of Ilnssla, abolishing export
ptumlum on sugnr, will cause the ruin
of the beet sugar Industry lu Hernia
ny, Kranco and Austria.
This Is the conclusion of the boot
sugar concerns of Germany, which
hate united In a memorial to the Im
perial government which closes with
"The Ilrussels cenventlon Is also
lately unacceptable. Iho govern
ment cannot nnd daro not leave us In
extremities. Above all else, It Is nec
essary that the Herman sugar produc
ers shall sink all minor differences
and disagreements, nnd unite to com
bat, resolutely nnd unitedly, the great
est peril that lias ever threatened
Effects of New Conditions.
The effect of the new cbndltlons up
on tho beet sugar Industry arc thus de
"(a) Reduction of thu homo Internal
price of sugar to thu present price In
thu geneial foreign markot. I
(b) Wholesale and general shrink
age of beet sugar production In Ger
many. Frame and Austria to one-halt
of its present dimensions In brief,
the ruin of that Industry.
"(c) Increase of sugar production
In all beet growing countries which
nro not bound by tho Ilrussels con
vention ami In all cano sugnr growing
countries, Including iho United States.
"(d) A probablo slight reduction of
tho consumer's tnx aud consequently
a 8innll Increase of sugar consumption
In Germany, Austria and Kranco,
which will not In any Important meas
ure servo to balanco tho loss to thosn
countries of their sugnr exports."
Advantages to Cane Sugar.
Tho overwhelming advantages
which tho cane sugar Industry will
gain nnd dorlvo from tho enforcement
i' tho Ilrussels convention are preflg-
1 as follows:
'1. Tho annual production of 2 1-2 ta
ons of ennu sugar per morgen
bout one actu) against a maximum
J ton per morgen of beet sugar,
itb a net cost of 0 marks per cent'
nor ($20.40 per metric ton) for beet
sugar that Is, an ndvnntngo of 2.50
marks per centner ?f0 per metric ton)
In favor of cano sugar.
"2. A 2 mark per centner higher
price for cano sugar by reason of Its
"3. Direct nnd indirect premiums,
including freight rebates, Import boun
ties nnd other government favors
granted to nntlvo sugars at least by
England and tho United 8ta(es say,
as nn average 1 mark (24,8 cents) pel
centner. There will Co thcroforo a
total advantugo of 2.50-I-2-I-1 marks,
equaling 5.50 marks ($1,30) ndvantaga
In favor of cano sugar over beet su
gar from tho countries bound by the
Demands Made of Germany.
Tho memorial then enters Into n
discussion of what tho German Gov
ernment ought to do for Its beet sugar
Interest to replace nnd compensate
for, In Dome degrdo, tho advantage1)
which It will Inovntlbly loso under thu
terms of tho convention, Thcso de
mands nrn foimulnted as follows:
"I. Hoduetlon of tho tax (Ueberzoll)

Confessions Highly Important.
Ilecnuse of ItH bearing. upon the leg
islation pending lu the Senate making
tho United Slates a market for Cuban
sugar, tho confessions of tho Ger
man sugar Interests arc of great Im
Consul General Mason, nt Ilerlln,
who transmitted tho memorial to tho
State Department, says It states that
a centner (110 pounds avoirdupois)
of raw sugar costs to produce) In Ger
many b.50 marks ($2.02). This In
cludes cost of 7 1-2 centners (825
pounds) of beets at 70 pfennigs (lflO
cents) per centner, cobI of manufac
ture, packing, freight to seaport, In
terest, office expenses, etc.
The Ilrussels couention will bring
this minimum cost of $2 02 Into con
Illst with the cost of cane sugar In
Cuba, I'orto Itlco, Hnwall. tho Philip
pines and other troplrnl countries,
which Is stated at li.2 marks ($1.47)
per centner, with tho result of Inovl
tablo ruin to tho former.
Ho then proceeds to show by nn
elaborate statistical table that tho

Germany, Austria and France, estima
ted nt 1,815,000 tons during tho pres
ent cnmpaign of 1001-2, will decline)

tho same period from ,530.000 tons In
1002 to 8,323,350 tons In 191011.
Favorablo Legislation Asked.
Consul General Mason snjs (lie Ger
man sugar Interests will employ their
elTorts to snvo, through favoring legis
lation by their homo government, some
thing In compensation for the Inng-en-Joycd
advantages which they must
yield under tho provisions of tho con
vention from nnd after September 1,
1003. How far the government will go
towurd complying with these demand?
tho future only inn reveal.
The propositions which the Helrtistag
has now under discission Include tho
repealing of certain chapteis of the
sugar taxation law, llxlng tho revenue
tax on sugar at 1G maiks ($3,80) per 100
kilograms, providing that sugar, which
before tho dnto of enforcement of this
law has been admitted to n bonded
warehouse and after tho said dato
shall bo released for tratllc or transfer
led to a factoi), shall be subject to re
pavment of tho export bonification al
lowed thereon, nnd contemplating that
tho amended law shall take effect si
multaneously with the convention in-
tcrel Into nt llrusi'l MaMi .", 1102.
According to Mr Mason the nn
miuiiic incut that the lliusuls Conven
tion had, after so mnnv pi cv Ions fall
uies icallv agreed upon n plan to
nbollsh expott bounties mini' to thu
ft emlcs of that measure with the shock
or .in unexpected surprise. The whole
proceeding was recognized ns a de
cisive victory for cano as against beet
sugar n conquest for the Indies. Ha
waii, the Philippines and Louisiana
over Continental Europe.
Irreparable Blow to Germany.
The Zuck I -Industrie, the leading or
gan of the German sugar producing
Interens. haitened to say that If tho
convention were carried into effect tho
result would be a blow to the sugar
Industry of Germany from which It
would never recover. It said:
"lu the world's markets our products
will be overwhelmed by colonial su
gars, which enjoy Important and deci
sive advantages. Germany will bej
I Hooded vvltli foielgn sugars because our
Import dutv Is so small; the cartel will
bo tendered forever Impossible; tho
price of beets must he reduced by at
I least 30 pfennigs (7.14 cents) per 100
pounds; beet cultivation, and with It
nsrleultur.il prosperity, must liiuvl
' tably decline."
1 Six dajs after the signing of the con-
rcntlon at Ilrussels a mass meeting of
I representatives of the beet growing
I nnd sugar making Industries was held
I In llcrlln, at which much impassioned
oratory was heard, but the general Im-
, presslon left by tho conference was that
of a merely general hut vaguely de-
fined opposition to any change In thu
I present system, which In effect taxen
1 sugar consumers In Germany to pay
I the cost of supplying Great Ilrltaln and
the Fnlted State with German sugar
I nt about half the price which, under
the ministrations or tho cartel, It costs
I In the resolution which summarized
tho action of that meeting It was Btated
I that It was too early to estimate close-
I ly and accurately tho full effect of tho
I convention, but that as it had jet to re-
) eelve tho appioval of tho Ueichstng
and Ilundesratli. ns well as the Imper-
j lu! signature, there still .emalncd op

This legislation will presumably bo
