Tho our appreciation to all who expressed was followed by a big WHAT WANT. The Keith and Lincoln Counties' Beet Growers Association, composed of 105 beet growers of the two counties, respectfully submit the following to the public: We ask that the Great Western Beet Sug ar Co. and the American Beet Sugar Co., for which companies we grow beets, give us a minimum flat price of $12 per ton for our beets, based on a wholesale price of $9.00 per 100 pounds of sugar, and an additional $1.50 per ton for beets for each $1.00 per 100 pounds of sugar in excess of $9.00, this excess to be based upon the average price of sugar during the months of November to March inclusive. In making this demand of tho sugar companies we are acting in co operation with the National Federation of Beet Growers which was recently organized in Denver and at which seven beet pro ducing states were represented. Wo be lieve that the sliding scale is just to tho growers, for certainly the sugar factories can afford to pay the growers more for beets when sugar is selling at $15.00 per 100 pounds than when it sells for $10 per 100 pounds, as in both instances the cost of manufacture is tho same. In making these demands, we are not placing ourselves in the position of profit eers, for we are willing to grow beets for $12 per ton if the factories will maintain sugar at a maximuin price of $9.00 per 100 pounds wholesale. Do you think our position is unfair? KEITH AND LINCOLN COUNTIES. BEET GROWERS ASSOCIATION. By FRANK TURPIE, Secretary. their sympathy with floral tributes. JAMES E.
