The report conclude . with the fol
lowing comment upon the situation as
regards seed.-anppiiea for the coming
season and lor that tV pilot!'
''It ia apparent, therefore, that there
ia aufllcjent eeeil on hand to .plant a
normal beet acreage thia year, includ
ing the nectry replaritings, aad that
after1 the planting season is over there
should be a surpis of from twenty to
twenty-eve percent of the augar beet
seed .requirements for 1919. Very lit
tle .tugsjr beet seed has been imported
eUrce January 31, 1818 and it.il not.
probable that any considerable quan
tity will be imported before the close
of the 1918 planting season.
"In view of the small aurplua that
will remain after the 1918 planting baa
been finished, it j evi.Ut that a oa-'
siderable increase in domestic seed pre-,
duction, together with a large nrpor-,
tutipn -of seed, will be necessary . fat,
order to make posi-ible a normal sugar
beet acreage in 1919."
Reports indicate that the beat ugr,
companies are awake to the situation
and are preparing to increase their need
production this year.

Tet Another matter of uncertainty
ha arisen.- A week ago everything
pointed to practically all of 4 he eu gar
qf the Island goin to Western re.
flneriee. On thcbeehi of thin cam tie
aaaeuneement that .28,000 ten woeWl
to Vanconver, the, firet, shipment
leave by the Tanet -ihU-i-wee.
Tbi seemed to fairy confirm -Wfe'rri
preaalon that existed but the' first1 of
the week there came a surprise to Ho
ihape of cablegram which told of the
llverting ef the- big cargo of the George
shington, 10,600 toas, and of the
nyadea, In all about 14,000 tone,v to
Eastern refineries. At the earn time
the Junes a was diverted to .Crockett.
. Confirmation ha been secured that
the shippers here believed matter had
bee practically arranged for -the re
fining of the Island product principally
In the Western United States aad in
t Cano'la. Now shipper admit that they
llo .not know what plana will be carried
out. .
' ther. o-eana an opportunHy for? it
movement by rail of which advantage
wa take. Tber i nothing to jnfU
ate that this may not occur again nor
Is there any Indication tbat the laa to

I kpowa that there ha arrived ' on
siderable amount of correamoadeace,
maU and telegraphic; between th aaln
land committee, the representatives
there of the planter and Eastern Sugar
men on the subject and especially in
reference to sales to Canada. ',
A it is the shipment to the Eat
through thia diversion of those two car
goes mean a much - larger cos to the
shipper s running up into the hundred
of thouennds of dollar. . ''"
The piling up oi sugar ia also aaaut -log
eerioue proportion and it it becom
ing luorq. and more evident that th
torehou capacity of the Island t
likely to be-taxed -to the Umlt If net
saceeded. 'Besides tbla the holding back
of shipments means also the holding book
of returns and. thl wilC be apt to mean
a deferring o 'dividend' until uh 're
turns do finally come I. They ar
certain In the end, almost,' te but
to anticipote them In, all instance,
would not be the best business policy.
