tho (onimlttoo today that tho roclproc-1
Ity treaty with Ciiln. liy whleh IIh
pinducts enjoy a 20 por cent dlrferon

from Cuban sugar and tobacco giowcrn
asking tho commltteo In defer action
nn these articles. Atkins urged that
tho tariff on sugir bo reduced und that
Cuba be given tho existing differential
mi this lower rate.

Representative Champ Clark of Mis
souri asked ATkIiis:
"If j on get tho reduction In tariff on
sugar that ou seek, would tliero bo
nny reduction tn tho consumer?"
"Tliero would ho a reduction In tho
retail price of about half a cent, I
should bay," was tho reply.
"How do ou know that tho Biignr
trust won't grub up that half cont?"
"If they could I would Join them."
An advocate for the free entry of
sugar was C. A. SpriclfelsMpreBldc'nt of
the Kcdernl Sugar Refining company,
nn "Independent" concern of New
York. "1 would bo perfectly satisfied If joti

Sprockets was Interrogated by Chair

Information about tho cheapness of
manufacturing beet sugar. Ho said
that 23 per cent of the sugar beets
produced 'In this countrj Is raised by
Asiatic labor. That tho American Su
gar Refining Company, or his own
company, needs no tariff protection,
was asserted by Sprockets. He ad
mitted that he had bought sugar lands
in Cuba as a speculation, hoping that
tho Island would some tlmo become
annexed to tho United States and that
us a result tho value of thoso lands
would be doubled.
