This Is open to a clearer statement. The pub

Kew-York Stato gives a bounty of one cent per
pound, provided the grower is paid So per ton
for bi* beets. The general average price would
pear to be about $4 00. In their report Messrs.
Oxoani and Cutting state that their average
cost of the conversion of beets into sugar is
1250 P er ton. a figure which they expect to re
duce to $2 per ton. The beets yield from 12 to
15 per cent of their weight as sugar. The pres
ent average is probably not above 12 per cent.
The calculation may then be given, say:

etates that in I**"* there were 135.000 acres
planted in sugar beets, and that the yield aver
aged less than fix tens to the acre. In the
State of Oregon the cost of cultivation is given
as from $20 to $27 per acre, with a yield of
eight tons. Greeley. Col., gave a cost of $14.

and his family, and at what rate, does not
Our consumption of sugar for 1902 will ap
proximate 2,400.000 tons. With a 12 per cent
sugar yield this would call for some 20,000.000
tons of beets, requiring for their production, at,
say. eight tons per acre, 2,500,000 acres of
ground. The output for this year is estirrmtea
at 150.000 tons. Assuming that this output in
creased at an average rate of 200,000 tons a
year, it would require at least fifteen years for
the beet sugar crop to furnish our annual con-
F,.rr.ption of sugar. What will it cost to nurse
that particular industry, assuming the possi
bility of its attainment of such dimensions? For
one item, the ruin of the island of Cuba. For
another, the cum of something like a round
billion of dollars from the pockets of the
American people in the shape of an enhanced
pries of their sugar.
By their own statement and their own figures
the beet sugar people do not need this protec
tion. Their own estimates plainly chow an
ability to meet the competition of Cuba's raw
Fugar, which Bay be roughly computed thus,
using minimum figures:
Cost of raw sugar In New-York _.... 2 cent»
Caet of retain* _ • 1 cent
lYtal 8 cents
This Is but a general approximation, but it is
sot far wide of the mark, and stands at 3
cents, as against the 2" A cents allowed by the
beet sugar people. The special object to be at
tained is cheap sugar, with all that it means
to the American consumer, and all that it may
easily mean in the extension of American in
dustries which would be opened as a result of
cheap sugar. The question of revenue may be
tllminated. If domestic beets are to supply our
SStar, we will get no revenue any more than we
would If the tariff were removed under a reci
procity treaty with Cuba. For a number of

NOPLE—DISSENSIONS AMONG BANDITS.
Constantinople, Jan. The news that the
brigands holding Miss Stone captive are being
hard pressed by the Inhabitants of the Turkish
territory where they are said to be hiding has
created some sensation here. A deadly feud
Is said to exist between the leaders of the hos

deserted and to have attempted to re-enter
Bulgaria, and much anxiet.v is felt here with
regard to the outcome of these developments.
The American Legation here has not yet re
ceived news from M. Garglulo, the dragoman
of the legation, who left Salonlca for the in
terior In the latter part of last month with the
purpose of meeting Miss Stone's captors, and
says that the rumors of Miss Stone's release are
unfounded. No direct news has been received
from the American captive since November 13,

BELL'S ACTIVE CAMPAIGN.
FILIPINO LOS3ES IN LUZON— CONDITIONS
IN OTHER ISLANDS.
Manila, Jan. f>.— General J. Franklin Bell Is
conducting a vigorous campaign in Batangas
Province. Every available soldier Is in the field.
The columns under the command of Colonels
Wlnt and Dougherty are doing excellent work
and driving the Filipinos In all directions. A
number of the latter are fleeing to Tayabas
Province, where the men of the native con
stabulary are rendering valuable assistance In
capturing men and rifles.
The advocates of peace at Manila deprecate
the stern measures employed by General Bell.
In reply General Bell says that these peace ad
vocates have had numerous opportunities to use
their influence, as they have received passes
through the American lines almost for the ask
ing, and that It has been afterward proved that
they often only went through the lines for the
purpose of assisting the Insurrection. General
Bell says that the best peace method now Is a

CondtttSSM In the Island of Samar are still un
satisfactory, owing to the difficulty of finding
th>« insurgents. Captain Schoeffel, of the 9th
Infantry, who was wounded In a severe hand

Island, between eighteen men of Company E. of
his r-glment. and a large force of bolomen. has
practically recovered from the effects of his
wound. Jn an official report of the encounter In
which Captain Schoeffel was hurt it la said that
;?>:\ killed three men before he received his
wound, and that the remnants of the detach
ment "f eighteen men with him were saved by
bis personal courage and daring.
The civil authorities say that the island of
Leyte la now perfectly peaceful. On the other
hand, the military authorities consider Leyte to
be dangerous on account of Its proximity to
Samar, if for no other reason.
Last Friday Major Albert L, Myer, of the 11th
Infantry, captured an extensive arsenal and

THE PASSING THRONG.
"There has been a deal of discussion cm both
sides of th« water. I take It. over the statement
that English actors are coarsened
AX TJX- In style by American audiences."
COARSENED said E. S. Willard at the Holland
ENGLISH House last night. "Do you know
ACTOR. why? Simply because an absurd
remark always causes more dis
cussion than a sensible one. I have played to many
American audiences v.ith pleasure and the cer
tainty of a sympathetic understanding, and I have
never felt any coarsening effects. I have never
felt that my style was Injured by American audi
ences. The statement Is absurd. More than that,
too. it is not very flattering to English actors, for
the man or woman who changes his style to
please his audiences shows weakness of character,
and the actor who unconsciously allows his style
to be changed by his audience has no very deep
grounded style to begin with."

be more office seekers than the new Democratic ad
ministration can possibly satisfy. It Is coins: to be
a bad thing for Mayor Collins that he was elected
by 19,000 majority— lt was flattering, but perilous.
He can't live up to the expectations of the thous
ands who helped elect him. The unprecedented ma
jority given to General Patrick A. Collins, which
has surprised so many people, even in Boston, was
due quite as much to municipal pride as to dissatis
faction with Mayor Hart's administration. Mayor
Hart raised the tax rate; on the other hand, he
lowered the city debt $9,000,000. But Boston people
like a famous man for Mayor. 'Pat' Collins is prob
ably the best known Irishman in America. Mayor
Hart isn't known outside of Boston. I always
thought Josiah Qulncy owed his election in part to
the name he bore; it sounded well to Boston ears
with 'Mayor of Boston' after it."
The second Sunday evening concert at the Met
ropolitan Opera House last evening attracted a
larse and enthusiastic audience. The feature of
the programme was Jan Kubelik, the violinist,
who first gave the Introductione c Rondo Capri

of the audience that he was repeatedly called out.
and at last consented to stye as an encore Schu
mann's Evening Song, with piano accompaniment.
For his second number he first gave an aria by
Ooldmark, followed by Paganini's Nel cor plu
non ml Sento, both with piano accompaniment.
