A TRUST CONSPIRACY.
HAVEMEYER STFBKES A BLCW AT DOMESTIC SUGAR. Trust Magnate's Iteeent Cat In Prices sin Evidence of 11 In Detcrmhimtloa to Destroy, if Possible an Asrricultura Industry of Great Magnitude. For the avowed purpose of injuring and if possible destroying the beet su gar industry in the United States Mr. H. O. Havemeyer, president of the Su gar trust, has ordered a big reduction in the selling price of refined cane sugar. The reduction thus arbitrarily put in force for an avowed sinister ob ject is from 5.03 cents to 34 cents per pound for granulated sugar. As stated by the New York Journal of Com inerce: "The reduction is a blow aimed di rectly at the beet sugar interests of the country. . It applies only to such sec tions of the country in which beet su gar competes and is so important that it means that most of the beet facto ries will be compelled to market their product at a loss if they live up to the contracts they have recently made. The cut in price affects only such sugar as ia shipped to Missouri river points, the eastern price remaining un changed. The blow is aimed at the beet sugar refiners of Utah. Colorado, Cali fornia and Nebraska, whare nineteen twentieths of the entire beet sucar product of the United States is manu factured. It is the practice of these producers to contract for the sale of their entire output at a discount of 10 points from the Sugar trust's figures, and at this discount the beet sugar makers have been able to easily mar ket all their sugar. If compelled to go 10 points below the trust's cut price of 3V4 cents the beet sugar refineries would be subjected to a heavy loss and would probably be forced to close their refineries and cease production. Inci dentally, of course, the market for su gar beets would be destroyed, involv ing tremendous losses to the farmers," who have undertaken beet culture on a large scale. The complete destruction of an in dustry which with a fair chance is cer tain to supply the entire amount of sugar required for consumption in the United States, in value something over $100,000,000 a year, is aimed at by Havemeyer. The Sugar King is alarm ed at the prospective competition of mUlions of acres devoted to the grow ing of beets of high saccharine content and of hundreds of beet sugar refin eries scattered all over the country. So he decrees a 30 per cent reduction in the price of cane sugar, hoping thereby to crush cut this young industry before it has the chance to grow to formid able proportions. For the same pur pose Havemeyer and his lobby Mre working tooth and nail to induce con gress to place raw sugar on the free list. He will not succeed in either scheme. The American people will not permit the destruction of the beet su gar industry. The case of domestic beet sugar is ably and convincingly presented in a recent issue of the Oil, Paint and Drug Reporter, in an interesting contribu tion from the pen of Prof. Ernest Mas, one of the foremost chemists and chemical engineers of the world, as follows: "Real American sugar is not cane sugar, and a great deal less glucose, that clandestine concoction of sulphur ic acid and starch which might pos sibly, and with academic assistance, be a sugar in theory like, for Instance, certain derivatives of toluene, a con stituent of coal tar, but is not and never was sugar to the palate, in spite of its being called 'grape sugar.' Real American sugar is not potato sugar; not even the fine saccharine product found in sweet potatoes deserves that denomination. The real American su gar, the coming sugar, which is fast dethroning them all, is beet sugar. The manufacturing process is so sim ple, the sugar beet bo rich in saccha rine matter nearly 15 per cent and the finished product so free from the objectionable features of so-called "grape sugar,' that it is only a question of a few years when nearly every west ern state from Michigan to California will have its quota of refineries. The changed conditions due to our war with Spain will ultimately and most fortunately cause us to grow our own sugar, save us $100,000,000 a year which we now spend abroad, give us wholesome syrups and develop a home industry equal to the requirements of home consumption. This, of course, providing that no congressional inter ferejice should prevent a development so desirable. Let the sugar tariff stand as it is for several years, and while 'this may not - exactly meet the views of Mr. H. O. Havemeyer, it will surely have for rational sequence, permanent, cheap and wholesome sugar, home grown and home-made sugar, beyond the control of dictation of the sugar trust or its affiliations. Mr. Havemeyer may embarrass the domestic beet sugar industry by his resort to arbitrary, cuts in price and to other unscrupulous methods but he cannot destroy it. Home-made beet sugar' is here to stay, and its triumph will involve the downfall of one of the most obnoxious of all trusts a trust which, curiously in contradiction of Mr. Havemeyer himself, is In no sense the offlspring of a protective tariff, but iwhich. on the contrary, clamors for the removal of the tariff in order that It 'may the more effectively injure and i destroy domestic competition. Its days are numbered. t A CRUSHING INDICTMENT. 1 The development of the beet sugar j Industry has been so nnid that we are near to the time when the whole of the hundred million dollars we used to spend abroad for sugar will go into the pockets of our own. people. This i nation consumes at least one-fourth j of the world's total product, and of fit- TT 111 1U O IJXUUUCl I WU ,!U1U0 ttl W made from beets and cnly one-third from cane. If th counsel and the protests of American Free-Traders had been heeded we should now not grow a pound of sugar outside the cane fields of Louisiana. Because the Protectionist principle was" received and approved by the people we - art ) about to become independent of out side sources for a necessity of exist ence and to keep huge profits at home. We made the machinery for the sugar mills from iron from our own -furnaces; we have diverted from excess ive cereal production land and human being to a more profitable occupation, and we have moved this nation ' one huge step further toward industrial independence. It would be difficult to frame an indictment against the American Free-Trade propagandists more crushing than to quote their own declarations and arguments against the tin plate duties and the beet sugar bounties.

AN "UNHOLY ALLIANCE." In view of the Intention of Con gressman Babcock to force his Tariff repeal bill through the Committee on Ways and Means by the aid of the Democratic minority of that commit tee and to work for its passage the Kansas City Journal says: "It may be that under existing ar rangements this is possible, for there are ten Republicans and seven Demo crats on the committee. A change of two votes, which is one in addition to his own, would enable the Democrats on the committee to report the bill. Speaker Henderson will be re-elected speaker, " and there will be very few changes either in committee or em ployes, but the speaker should reduce the number of Democrats on the Com mUtee on Ways and Means. The Dem ocrats cannot object to this -because they increased the Democratic mem bership of the committees the last time they had control of the House. If this committee had twelve Repub licans and five democrats it would be more difficult to form an unholy, alli ance." There is a much simpler and more direct way to prevent an "unholy alli ance" between the Democratic Free Traders and ' wavering Republicans of the Ways and Means Committee. That is for the speaker of the Fifty-seventh house to reconstruct that committee on safe Republican lines by dropping off the waverers and - filling their places with positive men. The ma jority side of the Ways and Means Committee is no place for waverers. Out with them! ., THE BELT KEEPS THE MILL GOING. JOLLYING THE FARMERS. - The Louisville Courier-Journal says that the Protective Tariff has been used to "jolly the farmer. " That is exactly where the Courier-Journal is rigiit. If the farmers of this country have ever had occasion to feel jolly, it is now, when, under Dingley law Pro tection, money has come rolling In to pay off mortgages, to buy new equip ment. Including the latest and most improved brands of agricultural ma chinery, and to roll up the account at the savings bank. Yea the farmers of the country, as a general thing, feel pretty jolly just now, and it Is the Protective Tariff which is responsible for it- There is no doubt about that. And the best of it is that the farmers are not the only people who are feel ing jolly, but the jolly effects of Pro tection prosperity have been felt by people in all walks of life everywhere throughout the country. As a pro ducer of Jollity the Protective Tarifl has few, if any, equals, and we an glad to see that the Louisvillle Courier-Journal is at last begining to rec ognize the fact, "Sound." The Boston Herald speaks approv ingly of the Portland Oregonian as "t Republican newspaper that has al ways had sound ideas upon the tariff. and then goes on to quote the Ore gonian as saying that "enough haj been done- for the manufacturers an wholesome reform would consider thi interests of the consumers, especially those of the farming class." It wil now be in order for the Herald t refer to Tom Paine as "a distinguished exponent of orthodox Christianity! Helping- the When factories are prosperous, farm ers are equally so. This is what ti now so materially aiding the tillers cm the soil in the west, and especially It Iowa, where a surplus - is produced The policies of the Republican part are helping the masses.
