MAKBODROWN SUGAR
Best Beet Land in the World U
In the Falouse Country.
Worlds Avera K e Is 14 Per Cent
Sugar Value Palouse Average
Ih Over 1H Per Cent.
At the town of Wuverly; just over the
Whitman county line in Spokanecouuty,
at the end of a Rpurof the (). R. & S'
Company line, is located the beet sugar
factory of the Washington State Sugar
Company, and which Is said to be one of
the largest aud bent equipped plants for
the manufacture of beet sugar iv
America
The Washington State Sugar Com
pany plant is owned principally by I). C.
Dorbio of Spokane, builder of the Spo
kane Falls <Jc Northern Railroad, and
several timen a milliouaire. The build
ings were erected and plant installed in
the summer of 189 D, and that fall the
factory had a "campaign," as the sugar
making season in called, of about tweotj
days. Sixty toiiH of ragar WaH manii
factored, but through difßcolty iv
obtaining skilled labor, the product ol
the factory wan unmarketable.
Mr. Corbin did not despair, however.
While laHt year but 8300 ton* of beets
were obtainable, this year the quantity
of beets has been in excess of 5000 ton*,
and the total output of the factory for
a campaign of less than thirty days will
be between 1,000,000 and * 1,200,000
pouuds of granulated sugar, that in tine
n»>NN, sparkle and purity will compare
favorably with the product of the bent
refineries.
An inspection of the factory was made
a few days ago by a Gazette representa
tive under the guidance of Assistant
Superintendent Woodall, who explained
the different processes by which ten tons
of beets were taken from the fields and
within a few hour* a ton of fine granu
lated sugar was sewn in sacks, ready to
ship to market.
l'roeess of Manufacture.
Reduced to plain English, the making
of beet sugar seems simple enough. The
juice of the beet in extracted, the albumi
noids removed, the juice filtered, its
seidnity corrected and made alkaline,
the juice boiled in vacuum until the con
deiiHed syrup cundies. when it in dumped
in ii machine very much resembling a
milk separator, which revolves at the
rate of 1200 revolutions a minute,
thrown oft' the moiassee, leaving a sugar
that in washed, dried and sacked, and is
then ready for use. The actual opera
tions by which this result is obtained
are not so wimple as the telling would
seem. To accomplish them requires the
constant employment of ninety meu in
the factory, divided into two twelve
hour shifts, with an initial investment of
9500,000.
Come in By Carloads.
The beets are brought to the factory
in carload lots, and also by farmers in
wagons, and are lirst stored in a long
roofed shed, of which there are three,
each holding 500 tons of beets In the
center of each of these sheds, is a trough
through which Hows a stream of water.
R.v this stream the beets are conveyed to
the factory, and automatically are
washed, weighed and fed into the slicing
machine, which cuts the beets into
Colettes, or shreds, each about the size
and length of a small lead pencil. These
shreds are packed into the cells of the
diffusion battery. There are fourteen
ceil* in the battery, each of which will
hold 8800 pounds of beet shreds. Hut
twelve cells are connected up at once, of
the other two one being in the process of
emptying, while the other is being tilled.
Water is turned into the cells at a tem
perature of about sixty degrees, and the
process of driving out the sacharrine
properties of the beet begins, the sweet
beet juice being nupplauted in the coss
et ts by the water. The fluid from each
cell passes through the next ceil, extraet
inu the sacharrine properties of each
cell's charge as it goes. In twelve min
utes on hu average the sacharrine value
of a diffusion cell full of beet cossettes
has been extracted, the cell is opened,the
beet pulp is dumped and the cell charged
again. About every fifth or sixth cell in
the battery the beet juice is drawu, and
is pumped to the measuring tanks, and
then to the mixing tanks where about
ten per cent of milk of lime is added, and
after a thorough stirring the sacharate
of lime is pumped into a carbonation
tank, where carbonic acid gas is added,
which precipitates the lime, carrying
with it the albuminoids that were in the
beet juice. An elaborate system of
filtering follows, the liquid being forced
through closely woven jute cloths, the
lime and other impuritiesforming a lime
cake in the filters. The beet juice is now
a tbiu liquid, slightiy green in color, and
with a sugar value of from 17 to 20 per
per cent. The juice is now evaporated
in what is termed the quadruple effect,
four immense vats, in which steam pipes
are contained in cells, and is then
pumped into the sulphitation tanks,
where the natural acidity of the beet
juice is changed into an alkaline. The
beet juice has become a syrup and the
making of sugar actually begins. The
beet syrup, now become a dark greenish
brown in eolor.isfed into a vacuum tank,
and boiled at a temperature of 05 to 70
degrees until a candy is formed. Then
the candied mass drops into a mixer,
where a set of revolving knives, stirs it
around and about, until it becomes a
plastic mass of syrup and sugar mixed.
A charge of this, about 400 pounds, is
dropped into a centrifugal machine,
which, whirling about at the rate of
1200 revolutions a minute, quickly
throws off the thick syrup still un
candied, leaving the sides of the receiver
with a thickness of sugar of a light
brown color. A hose with a sprinkler
nozzle, through which is pumped a
stream of water slightly impregnated ;
with ultramarine blue, throws a spray j
on the rapidly revolving sugar inass,and
the light brown color fades into a white,
and within ten minutes of the time the
plastic mass is dumped into the centri
fugals, there is dumped from that ma
chine 300 pounds of white sugar, which
after drying is the granulated sugar of
commerce.
The factory bae a capacity of 350
tone of beets a day, of 14 per cent sugar
value, can be safely depended on to
manufacture 35 tons of sugar a day.
This year the daily output has not been
to exceed 20 tons, the factory working
up not to exceed 175 tons a day of beets
with a sugar value of 18 per cent or
more Those in charge complain that
the lime in uee slacks with much diffi
ciiity, and for that reason the oper
0* carbonation and filtration are much
slower than they should be.
Finest Beets on Earth
In a eon venation with Buperintendeoi
of Agriculture Riiu it was learned that
during this fear the beet* worked up
j came from 1300 acres of land, and that
, the yield of an average of 4 tons au
i acre, was in his opinion not more than a
: third of a crop. Mr. Rum s«id:
I "The l'alouse country, aud particu
larly that portion of Union flat Iving
south and west of Pullman, is the best
sugar beet laud in the world In sugar
beet countries it is expected that beets
i will average from 12 to 18.6 per cent
| richness and 80 per cent purity The
j 5200 or 5300 tons of rogar beets that
the factor? has worked up this year
have averaged over 18 per cent sugar
richness, and have closely approached
'.>0 per cent parity. In making contracts
with the farmers, the scale was fixed
this year at H a ton for beets of 12 per
cent sugar value, with an addition of 25
cents for each added per cent of sugar
value. The farmers have been given an
average price of .+5 50 per ton, and
runny of those who raised beets for tin
factory made a very good thing of it —
one farmer reporting that he had made
a profit of #27 an acre on a 30 acre
! patch, while several state that beet
growing had proven profitable. In my
opinion beet culture will pay as well as
any branch of farming that can be pur
sued iv this country. This land will
produce from teu to fifteen tons ol beets
an acre, uuder proper cultivation. The
cultivation of an acre of beets, I know
from long experience, does not cost
more than $80, and this includes every
thing that can possibly be charged
against the land, including the harvest
ing ot the beets, and its loading on the
cars. That is the cost for a teu ton
crop. If the crop is fifteen tons, perhaps
the cost may reach $35 Even if the
beets are not richer in sugar than 12
percent, the return would be from $40
to #<>() an acre, while if the beets were as
rich in sug!ir, as the crop of this year,
the return would be from $55 to $82.50
an acre. I can see no reason why the
beets of the future seasons should not be
as rich as those of this year. Many of
the batches of beets sold to the factory
during the present season, were of even
higher sugar value than 18 per cent, one
lot reaching over 211 per cent, while
there were many that were greater than
20 per cent. I have made contracts with
farmers who will raise beets on 2500
acres of land during the coming season,
and 1 have hopes of getting at least 20,
--000 tons of beets to be ground up into
Rugar.
"The sugar output of the factory is
being handled by the wholesale grocers
of Spokane, who are loud in their praise
of our product. The company figures
that even when the mill jh pushed to its
full capacity, the people of the inland
empire will consume the full product of
the plant. Perhaps it may be of interest
to show what this plaut will pay out to
the farmers during luture sears. A full
campaign jh accounted from 110 to 120
days. Assuming that the latter figure
is the right one, and that we pay as we
did this year, an average price of $5 50
a ton for the beets, we will then pay out
to the farmers for 42,000 tons of beets
$281,000. Then the factory will have
to pay the railroad company at least *1
a ton, or $42,000. It will take at least
150 men to run the factory during the
campaign, whose pay will average $2 50
a day, or $45,000 in all. Then for re
pairs, general supervision, superintend
ence. ( -tc, add $50,000, or a yeuriv total
of ¥308,000 •
One Way to Prosperity.
Henry Schlehuber, after trying to
truike exclusive wheat farming pay for a
number of years, came to the conclusion
that handling a few head of stock iv
connection with his farm was the surest
way to make money with a small
amount of work, says the Parmington
Times. L;ist spring while still putting
in a large acreage iv wheat, .Mr. Schle
buber reserved a portion of his land for
pasture, and commenced to buy calves
whenever he could find one or more fur
sale. To buy calves or yearlings in the
ppring for the purpose ot making money
on the deal, would naturally on iir-u
thought seem foolhardy. However, he
concluded to try the experiment, and
has realized a handsome prolif on his
investment. In conversation with Mr.
Schlehuber a few days ago, h^ informed
us that altogether he had purchased 25
hei'd of dives and yearlings for about
and bad a short time ago disposed
of the entire band for $552, thus yield
ing him in about six mouthn a profit of
$277 as interest on the money invested.
Frozen Sugar Beets
About five carloads of *ugir beets on
the I'urrell ranch have been frozen, says
the (Jarfleld Enterprise. This ions repre
sents more than the protit on this year's
crop. These beets were pulled and ready
to be delivered. There were 160 acres in
beets. Of these twenty rive cars had
been shipped to the factory. On ac
count of the luck of June rains the crop
was not a good onp. The high grade of
the beets,2o percent aacbarrine matter.in
part compensated for the low tonnage.
Not only this year but last was dis
couraging, still it is stated that another
trial will be made next year.
