announced. The object sought is to equal
ize the price at which tugar is sold to retail
ers, with the effect of making the price to
eou-umers uniform in ech locality. .Sugar
is sold by the wholesale dealer to a retailer
on time at ju-t the refinery price. A die
count below the refln ry price is made for
cash The cost of handling to the whole
saler is about 1 SO a barrel in New York to

Tbe subj-sft ws considered lor mouths by
the Wholesale Grocers' National association,
and finally ref-i red to a committee of tbe
strongest men in tbe trade, with powers to
devise and exe. ute a plan for meeting the
difficulty. This committee has perfected a
plan which tbey believe will accomplish
their object without working injustice or
hardship to the refiner, tbe retailer or tho
consumer. It is as lollows: The lowest daily
quotation from the refineries, shall be the
minimum price at which suar shall be sold
by wholesalers (in the combination
to retail dealers This minimum price
shall be telegraphed daily from New
York to each of the 490 cities
In the country knowu as distributing points,
where the rate will vary according to the
ruling rat. s. end the rate telegraphed to
each city will b figured ou the basia of cur

minimum rats tot that day iu the place
named. Tbe refiners will at the end of each
month make a rebate of of a cut a pound
on all su ;ar sold llSSius tue month to dealers
who have not undersold the olHcial price.
Mr. Imbuoch F.xplaina Matter.
F W. ImUisch. of Milwaukee, who has
eeen toe. lOat active man in carrying out
the plans ot the committee, said yesterday
Each refinery will telegraph to the head
quarters of gee association in this city daily
the price at wh.ch it will sell sugar that day.
The lowest quotation thus receive.! will be
made the latsis of computing the minimum
price for each of the distributing points, and
that quotation will be the ruling price for
twenty-tout hours. Such a system w ill do
away with a big item of expense which each
ronu ry now assumes in distributing its own
quotations, then-finer receiving a benefit
in that way which will more than offset any
annoyance in the way of additional book
