THE TRUST AND THE TARIFF.
Competition Kept Up by the Workings of the
AMENDING THE LIMITED PBICE PLAIT
"The threatened scarcity of sugar, caused
by the quarantine regulations, has passed
- yy now and orders are being shipped as
last as they could be sent into the
refiners," said H. 0. Beggs yesterday.
'The sensational articles which have re
cently appeared," Mr. Beggs continued,
"regarding the movement among wholesale
grocers to obtain an adequate profit on re
fined sugar, contain many misstatements
and contradictory conclusions. In the first
place, there is no Sugar Trust The Amer
ican Sugar Eefining Company is not oper
ated by trustees, but is a legally incorpo
rated company, and cannot do business ex
cept in a legal manner. Refined sugars
have not been advanced c during the past
ten days, as has been stated. The advance
amounts to only 3-10 of a cent per pound,
and this is more than warranted by the
sharp advance in raw sugars, consequent on
the detention of large quantities of beet
root sugar in quarantine.
"The refining company cannot advance
refined sugar 5 or 10 cents per pound at its
own sweet will, as has been stated. An ad
vance of another cent would let in for
eign refined sugars and effectually prohibit
any further upward movement. The con
trol of the sugar market by the refiners is a
mistaken idea. The McKinley bill offers
protection to the manufacturer so far, but
if an effort were made to raise the price of
sugar beyond a certain point, foreign re
, fined sugars could come in and take the
Competition Aided by the Tariff;
"Would the removal of the duty on re
fined sugars cause a reduction in the price
of the commodity?" was askeJ.
"The removal of the small duty on re
fined sugar," said Mr. Beggs, "hich is
so hotly advocated, might bring a fractional
reduction in price, but it is not certain that
it would be a blow at the so-called trust.
It is shrewdly suspected that the American
Company sow owning all the refineries
'would not be averse to the removal of the
duty, as such action would seriously dis
courage the building of competing refin
eries. If competition in refining is de
sired, let the duty remain and it will come
in due time. If, therefore, any of these
persons have been filled with discontent
and indignation by these misleading state
ments and have, as is usual, blamed it all
on the McKinley bill and the party in
power, let them hesitate before wildly vot
ing for a change. They are not being swin
dled on sugar and are in no danger of such
"What caused this arrangement between
the jobbers and refiners to be made?"
J "lhe movement is the outgrowth ofade-
l sire to do their business in a fair, honest
and reasonable manner; to free it from the
I scheming and deception consequent on sell-
' ing some articles at a loss that others might
pay a profit; to make every article pay at
least enough profit to cover the cost of
handling it, it no more. A just regard for
fcouud business rules requires as much as
Working on a Small Margin.
"The margin established by the co
operation of the refiners and jobbers Is not
unreasonable or extortionate, as has been
stated, but is only yi to 3-16 of a cent per
pound, which w less than 4 per
cent on the value of the sugar
and this, as every jobber knows, is
hardly sufficient to cover lhe exjenses of
doing business, leaving no net profit what
ever. Refined sugar "has been used as a
leader for so many years by both jobbers
and retailers that margins have gradually
grown smaller and smaller and finally dis
appeared, and this article has become the
despair of every dealer. If the American
Company would announce to-morrow that
hereafter it would sell its product exclu
sively to retailers, the jobbers of the United
States would shout for joy. If it would go
still further and announce again that it
would sell only directly to consumers, the
retailers would dance with delight For
several years retailers everywhere have
been organizing for mutual good, one of
their objects being to dispense with this
senseless competition on sugar, and their
organs have unceasingly advocated a fair
profit on sugar for retailers, but very unrea
sonably object to the jobbers' movement to
ward the same end."
"How many jobbers are interested in this
Amending tho Limited Price Flan.
"It is estimated that over 90 per cent of
the jobbers of the United States are inter
ested in this movement," continued Mr.
Beggs, "and the American Sugar Refining
Company consents to co-operate because it
desires to please such a large majority of its
customers and further a movement which
is reasonable and just The plan is nothing
new, and the warehouses of the few jobbers
who protest against this movement and
claim they do not, and will not do business
in this way, are full of other goods
which they sell only in the limited
price plan, and could not handle
otherwise. But the jobbers have amended
the limited price plan withreBpect to sugar,
and thus eliminated the one valid objection
to it, which is that it practically puts a
geographical boundary around each jobbing
point Within a short time a delivered
price will be established for refined sugar
to every railway station in the United
States, and the retailer will pay exactly the
same price for sugar no matter where he
buvs it This price will be the refiners'
price in Xcw York or Philadelphia, plus
the freight to his station. By this arrange
ment Pittsburg jobbers will not be fenced
in, as has been alleged, but may cover as
much territory as thev please. This is
.known as tne equality plan.
"In sections where this plan has been
tried it is said that it works admirably and
none are moie pleased with it than the re
tailers. The nsual haggling over sugar
prices between jobber and retailer'is dis
pensed with, and the fair minded retailer is
satisfied witii the knowledge that he is
buying as cheaply as his competitors.
There is no quantity price, and the small
retailer is therefore subject to no discrimi
nation." The True Laxative Principle
