A trade duel, which Is still taking place, began between the planter nnd the refiner for the possession of the remnants. The refiners were anxious to obtain the supply in order to clear the way for the new crop, which will be ready In Pecember. nnd the Loul.sinna , crop, which is now being ground, and the revived beet sugar crop from the j West.
