Coffee Men in the Fight to Stay.
P1TTSUURG. Dec. 27. Since the an
nouncement was made that the Sugar
Trust has gone Into the coffee busi
ness as a retaliatory measure against
Arbuckle llros. & Co. for going into
tiinJsugnr business, the Pittsburg firm
wilfiimke the game worth the powder.
William A. .Tamleson, the New York
head of the coffee producing concern,
has arrived in Pittsburg nnd said the
battle will lie to a finish. He added:
"We do not believe the trust should
have complete monopoly of the sugar
trade, nnd we started in the business
the same as would go into any kind of
trade. We have a new machine for
packing coffee or sugar nnd could find
use for it only in the colTee business
We offered to sell it to the trust to
pack sugar, but the offer was not ae
copied. Then we decided to utilize it
"We have purchased a piece of land
on Rust, river, Hrooklyn. The build
ings on the property are now being
rn.ed, nnd we will begin the erection
of our refinery there January 1st. Our
intention was to build n plant that
would produce from 2,000 to 2,500 bar
rels a day. The action of the trust,
which bought n controlling interest in
the Woolson Spice Company of To
ledo and then began fighting us by re
ducing the price of colTee, and enlarg
ing their plant, changed our plans.
Instead of producing 2000 to 2300 bar
rels per day we decided to change u
big colTee mill into fi sugar refinery,
and we will turn out nbout 7000 bar
rels per day. We expect to put our

Importers of New York held a meeting
last night to consider the matter of
duties on rnw sugar, in order to report
their opinion on the same to the Ways
and Means Committee on December
30th. It wns decided, after a long dis
cussion, that the refineries should look
out independently for their own in
terests. The committee appointed to
wait upon the Congressional commit
tee is as follows: Solon Humphries,
.1. Smith, John Pair, William H.
LeiTerts and C. P. Armstrong.
The discussion was a long one.
mong those who took part in it was
W. P. Willet, of Willet & Gray, who
said that the consumption of sugar in
the United States had increased from
003,532 tons in 1881 to 2,000,000 tons in
1890. The average of the annual in
crease wns 0 per cent. There was good
reason to believe that in the next fif
teen years the consumption, would be
increased to 4,000,000 tons. After tho
establishment of Cuban independence,
lie said, the Cuban sugar crop would
lie 2,000,000, nnd its natural market
would be the United States.
Mr. Willet said lie had in formation
from Washington that the Ways nnd
-Means Committee would be satisfied
with a rate beginning with throe-
fourths of a cent per pound for 75-
degrec sugar and increasing .02 of a
cent a pound u degree. This would
make 00-test centrifugal pay 1.17
cents, ngalnst .87 of u cent, or an avor-
ige Increase of 23 per cent In the
duties from the present tariff, which
wns probably all that would be re
A proposition to recommend n dit
