In other words, for ovory throo pounds Hint consumors would use It they could fully satisfy their desires only two pounds nro available. This menus that tlioao who aro most anxious to obtain n full supply will bid up prices to a point whore those who are less eager or loss uble to got sugar at this higher cost will use loss and, by thus diminishing tho demand, enable the losseued supply to satisfy It. This Is tho working of tho tlme-houorod law of supply and domnnd. Undoubtedly thoro has been speculation In sugar on u considerable scale, butu In order to control prices, It would have to at tain the proportions of a corner and nobody yet has cornered sugar. The speculator may bo a parasite on tho trade, as ho Is accused of being, but does not fix prlcos. Sugar runs In such amounts, physically and financ ially, that It must move, continuously to market or crush whootor tries to slop It. I WI1V .NOT THIS TOWN?
