LOCAL SUGAR MEN
I WELCOME PROBE OF
RAW SUGAR STORAGE
Say Secretary Redfield Will
Not Find Any of Com
modity Illegally Held in
Warehouses Here.
Sugar refiners wero surprised to learn
today that Snretury Iteilfleld. of tho IJe
putinent of Commerce, contemplated In
vestigating the various warehouses to
discover if there is any Illegal storing ot
large quantities of raw Migar in the
warehouses for the purpose of later ruis
lng tho prices of the refined product.
They declared they would welcome any
Investigation, and that Secretary Itedfleld
would be disappointed If ho beltoed that
lie could find such unwarranted storage.
Confronted b unprecedented conditions
owing to the war. sugar refiners huve
betn in a quandary ns to how to act. The
sugar planters of the entire world were
practically cut ofT from their markets .it
the outbreak of hostilities. Tho I'nlted
Ptates was virtually tho only largo buyer
with pons open to receive the mw
product.
The war rame just as the Cuban plant
ers hart torn mosi rn ineir euriy crop. ,
Some remnants were still left In the
warehouses. 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. Germany, it Is said, is now ar-
ranging to market Us beet sugar crop I
nnd that of Austria through Scandlnuvinn I
ports. England purchased the entire out
put of Java, but the activities of the '
German cruiser ninden in the Arabian
ea make its d'Uverv doubtful The
Hawaiian crop was shipped here early.
The situation as It now stands Is that
the sugar reflncrles Imw mm.- raw prod
uct on hand than hex would like to
have, as It Is Impossible to raise the
prloj of the refined product which would
further curtail the already smalt output .
