Richer by Reason of Re
NEW YORK, April 24. Allan A.
Ryan, son of Thomas F. Ryan, is es
timated to have added $1,650,000 to his
wealth today when 58 other brokers
agreed to pay him $550 n share for
stock of the Stutz Motor Car company,
which they had sold short at prices
ranging from $100 at $391.
He and a protective committee rep
resenting the short interests signed an
agreement ending a controversy which
has furnished the greatest sensation
in years on the New York Stock Ex
change. The controversy began March 31,
when the Exchange suspended trading!
in Stutz after the price had been
jumping rapidly under shorts' efforts
to cover. There followed charges and
counter charges in which Ryan ac
cused members of tho board of gov
ernors of being short in the stock and
in which other members of the Ex
change accused him of having aj. ille
gal corner, which would prevent him
from enforcing the usual obligation of
a broker to deliver stock he has sold.
Ryan denied having 'orner and
said that as chairman of the Stutz di
rectorate, he had acted to protect
stockholders against raiders. He took
Stutz off the Exchange to curb, where!
it sold a3 high as $730, and ho re
signed from tho Exchange.

"Certain statements have recently

whatever for this charge. Of course,
the department of justice has used

has been bought up by speculators. 91
attention was called to tho serious
ncss of the situation by grocers and 91
sugar company officials. ffl
Reasons why beet sugar is high
priced and scarce were sot forth by a
local grocer today. He said that per
sons from the east were in the mar
1 ket for local sugar with apparently jH
inexhaustible capital behind them.
! The sugar, which is distributed to re-
tailers as a portion of Utah's allot-
mcnt is purchased by men of this

E. Sebbclov, superintendent of tho I I
Ogden district of tho Amalgamated I

cases Tn which' It' hud occurred. " ' H
A Greek restaurant .man Is alleged j H
to havo purchased $10,000 worth of I JH
sugar recently, which wa3 shipped, to 1H
eastern markets. The town of Bing- H

said that it was to curtail this pra- III

The local grocer who charged spec-
ulators with taking a portion of the
Utah sugar allotment, stated that he
had received orders for sugar from
places as far east as Connecticut.
, Tliero is a seriuus shortage of sugar
: in the east, he stated, and sugar can '
bo sold at a mighty attractive profit.
It is the fact that tho margin of prof

i "Utah, as a sugar producing center,
is attracting sugar speculators both
of the, tin-horn and the big-linm
type," he said. "If local dealers con- v
tlnuo to sell indiscriminately to an"yl I
one who flashes a large enough roll? 1
of money, Utahns face prospects ot m
going sugarless," he stated. M
Tho unanimous opinion of those
who know most about tho sugar in- ,
dustry is that tho Cuban crop Is the i m
dominating factor in the situation of '
this country. This year tho crop of 79
Cuba was estimated to yield 3,700,000 , Iff
