TRCST POSS!RLE
Th-* Joint Legislative Committee which ls In?
vestigating tho workings of trusts resumed its
labors IB the Council Chamber of the City Hall
yesterday morning. As tho oommtttes must
PtsWattt Its rtport to the Legislature on March
1. the final session will he held to-morrow. It ls
not probable that any other trust will be taken
up after Senator Lexow gets through with the
American Tobacco Company, whose president
was on the stand yesterday. It ls anticipated
that if the committee dives deepl) enougb int"
tho history and methods <>f the American To
-..?100.-- Company more interesting discoveries a in
l>.- hr.>ucht to i:ghr than even In the cases nf the
Rubber and Sugar trusts. As a trust it has been
particularly hold, ami its operations have b*jen
SECh as to bring it to the attention nf the Grand
Jury. On account of the meeting of the Boan]
of Aldermen yesterday afternoon, the committee
wa? enabled to hold only one session. G. Wald..
Smith, the president of the Wholesale Grocers'
Association, was the first witness called, and h.*
made an energetic defence of the action of the
Sugar Trust in Axing the price of sugar by means
of factors' agreements. He corroborated the as?
sertion of Mr. Searles that these agreements
were resolved upon only at the solicitation of the
Wholesale Grocers' Association: but ho was
forced to admit that the trust by the agree?
ments practically stifled competition.
James B, Duke, the president of the American
Tobacco Company, was In tho chair fur less
than an hour; but In that time he admitted that
his corporation had obtained control of DO per
c. nt of the cigarette trmle. and was, to all In?
tents, a monopoly, Inasmuch as only about lo
per cent of the trade was left for about a
hundred other concerns that wore engaged in
the manufacture of cigarettes. It was ascer?
tained also fi om Mr. Duke that tho trust had
dosed down three of the factories lt had ac?
quired, resulting in the discharge of several
hundred men and women.
It is possll.lo that the committee may occupy
Itself further with the affairs of the Rubber
Trust. Senator Lexow was Informed yester
dav morning that Joseph Ranlgan, of No. Wi
chambers-st., a former president of the Knited
States Rubber Company, was anxious to testify
before the committee. Mr. Banlgan was the
owner of the Woonsocket Rubber'Company De?
ft re It was acquired hy the trust. His relations
with some members of tho trust's directorate
have not been of the pleasantest nature for
some months, and it ls reported that he profioses
to start another rubber factory at Olneyvllle,
}\. I., for the purpose of fighting the trust, con
uently if he ls called to the stand to-day or
to-morrow, Mr. Barigan may have much of
Inp rest to tell the committee.

HOW SUGA3 PRIONS ARE FIXED.
MK SMITH DEPENDS THS FACTOR AGREE?
MENTS?FORMATION OF THE CIGAR?
ETTE TRCST.
The first witness csllM before thc committee
yest rday morning was G. Waldo Sn-lth, president
of the Wholesale Grac-rs' Association. Replying
to Mr. Lexow. he sa'.l tnat the association was
not incorporated. Th** -ha: rm .in also questioned
the witness as to ths formation ?f the association,
Its scope, the territory lt covered, and facts relat?
ing to Its membership. In the course of hts ox
it lon Mr. Smith said that tho association
lurisdlctlon In the South, nnd explained
that thc grocers and Jobbers of the South were
organized under tho title of the Southern Grocers'
Asso i it lon.
It may be remembered that Mr. Searles, In giving
evidence as to the Sugar Trust, said that the fac?
tors' agreements, under whVh the product of the
trust WSB distributed, w-.-re Insisted upon by the
Wholesale Grocers" Association, because tho latter
as.-erted that unless the price of refined BUgar
w maintained at a fixed level lt was Impossible
to obtain a profit from its sale. The onus In fact
of these agreements and of the fixing of prlce-i
was cast upon the Wholesale Grocers' Association.
Y'esterday. however. In reply lo one of Senator
DexjWs inquiries, Mr. Smllh stated that the asso?
ciation neither fixed nor controlled the price of
sugar In any way. All the association did was to
send out notices of the change, of prices in sugar.
It was true, however, he said, that the same
courso was not rak<n In regard to other goods,
and explained this distinction by saying that sugar
waa the most important product sold by the asso?
ciation. The sugar refiners adopted certain terms
of sale, nnd, in order to benefit by thos^ terms,
the secreti.ry was instructed to send out notices
cf any I bange In price. These terms, Mr. Smith
s ;hl, were made between the officers of the Whole
aale' Grocers' Association. Mr. Searles, Mr. Have*
meyer and other sugar refiners, but he could not
remember the names ot tho latter.
?Where ooen your association get the price of
sugar''"
??From the sugar refineries."
"Dont you know that your secretary gets the
price from th<* American Sugar Refining Com?
pany?"
? I have cn Impression tho price ls hung up In
th.-ir office, end tne secretary goes there and gets
"Don't you know that ne ls ordered to go there
and get lt?"
"1 don't know anything about lt.
Tho witness said that lb* rules of tho Wholesale
Grocers' Association had been drawn up nina
years ago. and never changed since then
' Now did not the American Sugar Refining Com- j
puny draw up thc rules that govern your assocla- j
lion?"
?Not to my knowledge.??
"Now, be careful. Will you swear that company
not pay for ihe printing of tho rubs?"
I do not know; I don't think so."
? Do you mean to say you are losing money by
g sugar?"
Yes, slr; that la so. I am speaking of my own
firm."
? Notwithstanding you get 3-16th of a cent per
pound as ;i rr hate?"
Yes, slr."
"Do you want to be understood that the American
Buger Refining Company ls responsible for tho code
of rules putting the price of sugar m an equality
everywhere, and not the Wholesale Grocers' Asso?
ciation."
NOTHING TO DO WITH THB RULE
"The Whol.-ale Grocers' Association had nothing
to do with that rub to my knowledge "
"Did your association solicit the American Sugar
Relining Company to fix the pricesP'
?'Our a-svoiatlon had nothing to do with the fixing
of prices since five cr six yean ago."
Mr. Smith said his firm bought goods from the
American Bugsi Refining Company and from the
Mollenhsuer < tompany.
"And you g.t th.- same documents from both rom
pani- rs?"
"Yes, sir."
?Then tb- product of the MoUenhauer company
is Axed by the quoted p-p-es ?r ti,,- American sugsi
Ri nlng Company?"
1 have no knowledge of any such thing."
Mut don't you fix the price asked?"
' V's. dally, as telegraphed hy our brokers "
".Ww," said Senator Lexow. rising in his seat
and blinding Mr. Smith a copy of the factors'
agr**sasnt, "J am sorry we should know mora
alon your business than you do."
Mr, Smith examined rhe document carefully and
th<n reniark-d: "All mai ls in thal agreement ls
ti..C we muk,- nu i.tthl.ivlt to inuiniulri rh.- price
of sug ir "
"is that nil?" ask.d Senator Lexow, quietly.
li at's all, to my knowledge. I never ?|gne<]
ll." uflldiivlt."
"Who signs the affidavit for you?"
"Mi. Sill.-"
"Now. h : tr..- -how you the affidavits you make
Do these all,davits not state the conditions under
liich you n-ci-i.,- th.* sugar?"
"No, slr; we found wc wire handling auger at
il coat, which meant ruin. W* went t-> the augar
eflners with certain proposals. They aald: 'Now
ve will gu., you a list of our customers, nnd If
.'on can get 99 per cent of them to Join'in your
request are will grant H.' "
"Then lt wis the American Sugar Refining f'om
>nny which proposed the organization of the
Wholesale Orocers' AsaocMtton?"
'No association was formed at that time, lt was
rimply an agreemeni. We asked for a rebate
nhteh would prevsnl the cutting of prices."
"Then you were grimed what yon naked?"
' Yes. sir. We asked ihe American Sugar He
tlnlns Company to lix a price, and to maintain
lh.it price, in otb. r worOa, we nske.l for pro
leetlon. and they gave tt to us"
Senator LexOW then asked the wltnes* If he he.
li.v.d ihnt factors' agreement*, r\\.) not ,ieStroy
r-ompetltlon.
COMPETITIONS and COMBINATION!
"Without competition the who'e ir.nle of the
Knited States would be destroyed.' bs said, r.n.1
In almost the same breath he contended thal com?
binations were n benefit lo the consumer, as they
were to trade
"But how do you rtoeount for the fad thal trade
went on for IJM yean of the Christian .ia prior to
ll ? Organisation of these syndical. aT
"Simply because twenty-Sve years ago not r. per
cern f ail tbe goods sold In tbe retail stores wera
of uniform quality and price, Now 71 per cen! are
Of uniform quality, erst and price."
"Now. ls n not a fact that the Wholesale Gro- |
ors- Association is | tail lo the kite Of 'h" Anuri- ;
can Buger R< nneryf
"No. sir."
Mr. Sml!h rontlni ed to defend ihe miking of I
factor agreement! by the trusts, without the ,x- .
Istence of the sgrajements he said lt would be poasl
ble for one man In a hundred to eu; the price of !
SUgsr and consequently to work to Ihe detriment
Of the other ninety-nine. He maintained, as did
Mr. Sear eS. thal no factor agreemeni wai .vcr
refused to nnv dealer, unless lhere was doubl Bl
to his financial ability to meet his obligations.
Senator McCarren then examined the wltneai al 1
some length, and compared the ay it em by which
rogar was sold with thal by which other staple
groceries were handled by the r. tailers Mr. Smith
explained that each class <>f goods w.-is aold on a
different basis, but in at least sixty cases the gooda
were sold on what pla. th illy amounted to B factor
agreement, although no written agreement existed.
Rebates were granted on condition thal there
should be no cut lu prices.
Before ending his evidence. Mr. Smith, as many
of the trust promoters w-ho have given testimony,
found an opportunity to denounce tho interference
by Legislative bodi.-s with commercial corpora?
tions,
JAMES B. DUKE ON" THE STAND.
When Mr. Smith left the stand Senator LexOW
ai i ounced that the committee would next take up
the American Tobacco Company. Jamel H. Duke,
the president of the company, which ls popularly
known as the Tobacco Trust, was the tlrst witness
called to testify to tbe operations of this company.
H.* informed the committee that the American To
luifco ("omi).my was formed in USO, and was In?
corporated nnd..r tho laws of New-Jersey, Mr.
Duke a! the outset was unable to BUpplj the Com?
mittee with any satisfactory r.ason why the com?
pany should have been organized in New-Jersey,
but eventually Senator Lexow forced him to admit
thal the rea-'.n was to !,.- found in ihe fact that
the laws of New-Jersey were mure considerate .md
favorable to trusts than the laws of any other
State in the country. That fact has been before
demonstrated in tho case of tbe Sugar and Rubber
trusts.
When the tobacco company was first organized,
lt was brought out. the'.following companies were
amalgamated: Allen Sr ("inter, of Virginia: W.
Duke. Sons & Co. of North Carolina; W. S Kim?
ball & Co., of Rochester; Goodwin & c0., New
York, and the Kinney Tobacco Company, of New
Tork. Subsequently the trust acquired these addi?
tional concerns: The National Tobacco Works, of
Louisiana; E. Whitlock & Co., Richmond. Yu.; G.
w. Qail at Ax and Marburg Brothera. of Rich?
mond; Hernsheim Brothers* Co., of New-Or leena;
Thomas IL Hall. Consolidated cigarette com;,any.
H. Ellis * Co., of Baltimore, und .'.. H. Martin <*4
Co., of Non li Carolina.
Having o'.,tamed Ihe names of these subsidiary
o ii:; anies now controlled by the American To?
bacco Com].any, Mr. LexOW reverted to the motive
that urged th.* New-Jersey Incorporation.
"1 will repeat,'' he saul, "the i|U*?stion thal I
asked you before, and that ls. What was the
nature of the situation that justified the organiza?
tion of a company in the state of New Jersey, no
department of which was slnmied in that Stu!*,
and wb< re it has consequently no interest ai dis?
tinguished from the four States In which it owned
fa-'i.ries""
"Well." replied Mr. Duke, wi'h considerable hesi?
tation, "for one thing ihe taxei acre lower, and
then, again, counsel advised ui lo organize in New
Jersey."
"Do you mean," continued Mr. Lexow, "that
the preliminary laxes were made lowerT"
"Yes, and the yearly taxes also," answered Mr.
Duke.
"ls lt not a fact that the primary reason for the
organizing of the American Tobacco Company In
New-Jersey was that the laws of that State per?
mit one company to sequin the stocks nnd se?
curities of other companies transacting substan?
tially the same business'.'"
"That did not move us. because we did not me.m
to own any stocks in other companies."
"Were ym principally concerned in the maklng
up of the corporation of which you are now presi?
dent?"
"I was."
"Then, so far as you aro pcrsorally concerned,
the primary object for organizing In New-Jersey
was the- question of taxation?"
"Yes. slr."
A MONOPOLY OK 90 PER CENT.
Then Mr. Lexow branched off In the direction of
Inquiring as to the amount of business controlled
hy the American Tobacco Company. Mr. Duke, in
reply to questions, admitted that his company had
a monopoly of actually about 90 per cent of the
cigarette trade of the country. In what are known
as the "all-tobacco" brands of cigarettes, he testi?
fied that the trust made- about 60 or 70 per cent nf
th" entire output.
"The committee would like to know," suggested
Mr. Lexow, "whether all the factories that you
have named as being bought up are now running?"
"No, sir; vv.. closed down ihe factories of Goodwin
& Co., the Han factory and the Consolidated cigar?
ette factory. We closed down th.se f sc torlea; but
I would liku to explain that the brands that were
manufactured there were removed to other fac?
tories which wo owned, and are now being made
In these places. You s. a the American Tobacco
o.in;, my. In these instances, did not buy the build?
ing! Ol factoriea, bul simply bought up the brands.
Those brands, as I have s,tjii, we are now making
in sf.me oi' .ur other factories."
?'How many mm were discharged by tho dosi lg
of the Goodwin factory?"
"It was only a small concern. I cannot exactly
say how many people were employed there; but
lt'was pribablv not more than ISO. When we
moved die brand to our Rochester factory :'or
manufacture, wc employed more people there."
"How many employes were tbs, barged from
Halls factory?"
"I cannot say."
"Have you no figures which will show- even ap?
proximately how manv lian.ls were discharged?
"Well, as a guess, 1 should say from about ISO to
"Now, was the number not som- thing like. CO.
"I don't think it was as many bi that."
However, when pressed more closely on this
point. Mr. Duke felt hims, if oonstrllned to ne
knowledge lhal In the busj season Hali's factory
miirht have employed as many as 4.,u m> 11 and
giri- He thoimlit. also, aft.r considerable qu *s
1 lonlng. that the Consolidated cigar, ti.- factory
mlght have employed 100 hands. He admitted,
als., ilia! th.- Ellis factory. In Baltimore, was
shu! flown, but he sai.i thal its ti.,.I. had ba n
removed to another factory which the ti isl owned
In Baltimore. He explained, als,., that the manu
ti re of the Consolidated company's brand bad
Len removed to Baltimore, and that marv ..: thil
company's employ.-- had received offers of placet
In Baltimore. He was unable to suv, however,
how manv of Hu -rn w-.n- abb- to avail themaelvea
of the off.-r. Mr. Duke added that since the en?
largement of the Tw. nty-s< ...rid-si. factory, owned
by the company, tin- number of hands had been

nier reason for this withdrawal, he frankly Ba?
ir.ci waa l.auae some of the consignees "cut

lb. three moat Important sections in the oon

is follows:
. - ''' ' If -,i,u .io not discriminate against our

PENALTY OP VIOLATION.
Mr Duke arserted that h" considered a vi.cation
.f any of the foregoing subdivisions us a BUf*
Iclenl reason for withdrawing rh.* agreement from
rn: factors, hy refusing to nay th.-m any rakaia
ind thus practically preventing th.-ir selling the
piroducts of the American Tobacco company. He
iilmltted that the object of the trust wus to get
ill the to',nico dealers to handle Us goods exclu?
sively, nnd thai tit* obied of the consignment
igreeraent was ro maintain 'he pries Sx*d by th*
trust.
"ls lr not n fact, also." askul Senator LCXOW,
"that no man engaged In Cue tobacco business can
luccessfully compete with others unless lu- handlea
lour products, so great have been the demand*
for th'-m?"
"He cnn compete In the business, bul he cannot
nuke ra much money, People have tried to throw
our goods out of th.* market, but they have not
succeeded "
"lt amounts to this, thal vour brands ar.- BO well
known tha! i tobacco dealer cannot extol except by
ih liing vmir brands""
"1 don't kinw about that. All 1 know ls that
they 'ki sdi our brenda"
"In vour opinion Mr Hake, does not attch a stnte
of thltir.-s Inevitably had to a monopoly'?"
"No. We almply sell certain brenda that belong
to us. Other people. If they wish, can make braids
ard take them into the msrket, and if people want
their goods, they can ge! plenty "f jobbers to dis?
tribute them "
"Hut have you not air-,olv agreed thst so great
ls thc demand for vour product thal thfl small mer?
chant must lake your brands in ordei.lo busi?

the market""
"No sit because von can take f.ne Johbi r In tn*
cltv of New-York and he will bc able to supply the
whole business with any particular brand that the
public wants For our own part, we would sooner
have fewer jobbers than we now have"
At this point tha committee adjourned until io

1'oX TK.RBIERS POPULAB FAVORITES,
The fox lerrlers are proving popular With the CSI ?
crowd who don't know much ai.our dogs in particular
hut who lovo them In general, and their section at
the Kourth-ave. end of the Garden ls seldom with?
out a throng of visitors. August Belmont lias a
numb.-r of fine animals In this exhibit, and several
of them hay., taken valuable and significant prises,
It might have been though; that Ibo di ks would
tire themselves out after i day ,.r two of incessant
howling, but Illus far there h.ts not been a quiet
moment In !ho Garden. Not that they all lu.wi all
the time; they have got lt systematized. They do
lt In shifts. Some of them sleep while the rest
keep the dog watch, so to speak, nnd any of the
whole Lo1"} In perfectly willing to stop howling and
talk with any well-disposed passer-by wiri can ap?
preciate lits conversation. Th.* dog* have a curious
way of howling by sections. There is always some?
thing to start lt. as a rub*. Sometime?) lt begins
when a big dog la led between rows of small dogs,
nnd sometimes the clamor arises between
two adjacent dogs who take a dislike to each
other nnd try' vainly Jo bite through the wiro
si reens, while all that row of dogs applauds tho
would-be tighter*. Occasionally one of the Utile
fellows ties himself up In his chain and informs
the community of his calamity, but, from whatever
cause, there ls never any quiet. The only dogs that
don't howl aro the two Esquimau dogs, which
sleep calmly through all the din.
