The Sugar Outlook. -
The decision that the Sugar Equalization Board is to demobilize
at the end of December means that the distribution of sugar will be
based upon the highest bidder.
It is generally asserted that there is a world shortage of sugar
which is likely to contiftue for some time to come. This is true,
taking the world at large,"^but there are several factors that will affect
the situation. The first is that the maximum production of sugar'
takes =place in the month of March and for a period of four or five
months subsequent to that date there will be a surplus of sugar on!
the market. This should, in the ordinary course, modify the price.
The public has already learned that the sngar shortage comes in the |
months of October, November and December, but it probably does
not appr?ciate that there is a-surplus in the months of March, April,
May and Jutie.
Another factor is the fact that the shortage of sugar in the
Western Hemisphere is due to the destruction of sugar production
"in Europe and in the Eastern Tropics, and the consequent demand of
Europe upon the production of the Western Hemisphere. It is by no
means certain tha? Europe will have unlimited credit with which to buy
sugar during the next year and the European nations may continue to ra
tion their publics in order to reduce national expenditure. The period of
acute shortage is likely, therefore, to continue during the months
of December, January and February, and the price level which, sugar
will take without control will probably show considerable increase.
The unfortunate part in sugar distribution by the highest bid isi
that the manufacturer of candy and sweet drinks is able to contract [
for long periods in advance, is nearer to the source of sugar, isj
the more reliable customer and has the larger capital upon which to |
operate. Furthermore, the cost of the sugar that he uses is passed
on to the public in his profit. Therefore, the economical housewife
must buy against such competitors to her tremendous disadvantage.
The American public consumes annually 8,000,000,000 pounds of
sugar, therefore a rise of one cent a pound in the price of sugar means
$80,000,000 out of the pocket of the American consumer. The Sugar
Equalization Board, by virtue of its total purchases of the Cuban
crop last year, managed until the last few weeks to hold the price to
about It cents to the consumer, and a rise of at least 10 cents a pound!
that will probably ensue will be mulcting the pocket of the American!
consumer to the tune of $800,000,000 per annum, from which the
Cuban planter will receive 50 per cent of the total additional profit,
the other 50 per cent going to producers of continental and insular
Uni{?d States. ? '
, Whether the sugar producers will continue to get away with this
ratio of increased income for long will depend upon the factors |
mentioned above. However, it is by no means certain that those whoj
are engaged in speculating upon this possibility may not get their i
fingers well burned. * .

Gen. Squier's organization has harnessed the trees to wireless |

now know why the pines sigh and the willows weep.

Abolish the Rider Plan.
? ? ? I
Legislation by riders is one of the most pernicious methods of
procedure devised by parliamentary experts and leaders of both politi
cal parties can prove that their expressed opposition to the custom is
genuine by voting to abolish it.
The only justification for its being is to facilitate imperative
legislation and that excuse is more frequently abused than used.
For the unitiated, it may be stated, that the rider method as it
is all too often used, is to tack on to pending legislation, some amend
ment or new bill with subject matter entirely foreign to the matter
undfcr consideration.
Generally,*'the legislation included in riders is of a controversial
character, worthy of a discussion upon its merits and frequently it is
of a kind that could not be passed by the accepted procedure of regu
lar channels.
The District's fiscal affairs have all too often been brought before
the House in this manner, through rider proposals to abolish the
50-50 plan of taxation.
The real purpose of rider legislation is to limit debate and choke
off honest discussion. It has been roundly condemned by parlia
mentary experts, both Republican and Democratic. It is among the
legislative reforms that can be effected without any substantial oppo
sition and it ought to be instituted at once.
It was a rainy day but not a wet one.
The German mark, selling at 2 cents, suggests it may be jealous
of the Iron Cross.
District residents are finding it comparatively easy to save sugar
but mighty hard to get it.
It is a demobilized soldier who inquires how many of those seek
ing war with Mexico are of the draft age.
Troubles never come singly. The fowner Kaiser's landlord has
raised the rent, but would prefer to have him move.
It may be that many of the nest eggs saved up for a wet decision
will be used for other Christmas presents.
Plenty of difficulties confront the platform builders of the big
political parties, but paying carpenters at the overtime scale is not
among them. 1.
