C0STSS30 EACH
Sugar Gougers Trim America
for $600,000,000 This Year.
Every One In the Business Is
Making Huge Profits.
Washington, May 13. Sugar should
sell for 114 cents a pound and pres
ent prices ranging from 20 to 25 cents
are due to profiteering, W, Jett Lauck,
consulting economist of the railroad
brotherhoods, told the railroad labor
board to'day.
Sugar "gougers" will exact a total
of 1800,000,000 from the American
people this year, or 330 from each
person in the country, Lauck, who is
urging the board to grant railroad
men increases, said.
Income taxes for 1917 show that
sugar producers have earned 52.28 per
cent on the capital stock; 59.2 on
capital invested and 45.53 on their
capital actually invested. after all taxes
were deducted, he said.
Cane producers earned 27.28 per
cent on capital stock; 238.34 per cent
on capital actually invested, and 191.04
on capital after deducting taxes, ac
cording to Lauck, who said sugar was
then selling for 7.7 cents a pound.
"If the producers showed such
amazing earnings then," "Said Lauck,
"what must be their earnings today
with sugar hovering about 25 cents a
pound."

BUY OWN HOMES
"ew Yorkers Spend $"5,000,000
to Beat High Bents.
Co-operative Ownership Plan
Spreads Even to Millionaires.
New York. May 13. Tenants have
purchased more than $75,000,000
worth of realty in New York in the
last year under the co-operaiive own
ership plan, as ft protest against high

Of this amount at least 325,000.000
of the properties have been purchased
for private occupancy by the buyers,
while co-operative owners have
bought apartments and business struc
tures for the remaining 350,000,000,
millionaires as well as ordinary ten
ants have Joined the movement which
has gained considerable momentum in
the past few months.
No uniform plan has been followed
in either buying: or holding. In many
cases, purchasers have obtained singleJ
apartments in fashionable apartment
house districts either by outright buy
ing or by taking stock in holding
companies. Proponents of the
movement claim that substantial sav
ings have been or will be made on
their rent outlay from the profits and
economies resulting from their own
landlordship.
The first office buildings to be
erected here on the co-operative
scheme under plans announced today
will involve an outlay of 340,000,000
the largest single real estate trans
action in the history of the city. The
buildings will be thirty-one and twenty-five
stories in height and will have
a floor area of 1,500,000 square feet.
The skyscrapers will be erected on
property northwest of the Grand Cen
tral terminal, between Park and Madi
son avenues, from Forty-fifth to
Forty-seventh streets. Half a million
square feet of floor space In the
buildings already has been reserved
for & group of corporations which
will move from the downtown busi
ness section.

BLOCK R. R. YARDS
It's Unloading, Jfot Hauling,
That Causes Tie-Up.
Railways Are Moving More
Freight Than Can Be Handled.
New York, May 13. Freight con
gestion in the eastern section of the
country with its resultant decrease in
the already inadequate supply of
freight cars, is more a result of the
inability of consignees to unload cars
quickly than inability of the roads to
move cars, railroad officials here said
today.
The roads were almost unanimous
in asserting that efforts of the recent
strike of switchmen and yardmen had
been contracted by the return of a
majority of the strikers to work and
the employment of other men to re
place strikers still out.
Some of the present congestion,
however, was admitted to be the re
sult of piling up of freight during the
strike, but this, officials declared, was
being speedily cleared up. . ;
A strike of union longshoremen and
the refusal of union truck men to
handle freight moved by nonunion
longshoremen was said to have r
marked effect on the slowness of un
loading cars and making them avail
able for outbound freight.
Plans to break the trucking angle of
the tie-up were under consideration
today at a meeting of the trucking
committee named by six of the city's
large commercial organizations. Col.
Frederick A. Molitoe, who commanded
the Twenty-second engineers 'n
France, has been appointed - -by the
committee to organize an independent
trucking force, and overtures have
been made to the war department for
the use of 400 army trucks stationed
in and near New York.
INJUNGTIONSTILL STANDS?
Wclty Says Government Can Prosecute
News Print Manufacturers.
Washington, May 13, The depart
ment of justies can prosecute paper
manufacturers for the high prices now
being charged for news print in the
open markets by exercising rights of
the government under an injunction
obtained by the attorney general in
1917, Representative Welty, Ohio, de
clared. The injunction, which was effective
April 1, 1918, and to continue until
three months after the proclamation of
peace, prohibited prices in excess of 3
cents a pound for carload lots and 3
cents in less than carload lots, until
the federal trade commission fixed
prices after an investigation, Welty
said.
DANIELS SAYS
tContlnued troia fage Use.)
vicinity of the convoy. Sims's various
attempts to discredit the submarine
attacks reported by Admiral Gleaves
and the other officers, said Mr. Dan
iels, are of a piece with his attempts
to throw doubt on the entire conduct
of the first expedition,
"We had no reason then andLiiave
no reason now to doubt Admiral
Sims's own positive statements, made
at the time, that the convoy was at
tacked; the reports of Admiral Gleaves
and the official report of the French
general staff to the same effect. This
is not the first or only instance in
which Admiral Sims has stated before
this committee that statements made
in his official dispatches to the de
partment during the war were not to
be relied upon."
Mr. Daniels also testified that Ad
miral Sims had objected to the use of
the former German liner Leviathan as
a troop ship on the ground that her
great length made her a better target
for torpedoes than smaller vessels. He
also said the admiral had contended
.the ship should be operated to Liver
pool rather than to Brest because of
better facilities for handling her cargo.
His Advice Was Poor.
The navy department, the secretary
said, followed the admiral's advice in
the matter with the result that the
Leviathan, because of her great draft.
had to await an entire lunar month at
Liverpool before Bhe could get out of
tho harbor. Admiral Sims's views were
then disregarded, the witness said, and
the Leviathan operated out of Brest
where her turn around "was meas
ured in hours instead of weeks and she
broke all records in the number of
trips transported."
Mr. Daniels presented various offi
cials documents to support his con
tention that the cinvoy system was
originally sponsored by the American
navy and that it was not adopted fully
until several months after the United
States entered the war and had sent
many destroyers ana other craft over
seas thus providing the ships to make
the operation of the convoy system
possible.
