CONSUMERS HERE PAY 9c.
Sugar Cost 35 Cents a Pound During
ClviJ War—Refiners' Profit*
Now Curtailed.
flugwr is Belling today throughout
America at from 8 Vi to 9 cent» u
pound to lire consumer, even though
there is a woUd shortage which has
reduced this nation s sugar allotment
to 70 per cent ot Donnai
Through the effort* ot the United
States food administration the sqg tr
market haa been regulated as Ar as
the producer, refiner and wholesaler
la concerned. The food administration
haa no power to regulate retail prices
except by public opinion. Even though
more than 85,000 tons of sugar have
been shipped to France In the lust
four month* the retail grocer s sugar
price Is around 8 to 834 cent9. He
should sell this sugar at 834 To 0
eents, the food administration believes,
and asks the American housewife to
pay no more than this amount
Last August when the food admin
istratlon was organized the price of
sugar rose suddenly te It cents a
pound. During the Civil War sugar
cost the consumer 35 cents a pound,
By regulation of the sugar market and
reducing the price to 834 and 9 cents
and keeping It from advancing to 20
cents the food administration has sav
ed the American public at least $180,
000,000 In four months, according to
a statement mado by Herbert Hoover
the other day.
"It Is our stern duty to feed the al
lies, to maintain their health and
strength at any cost to ourselves,"
Mr. Hoover declared. "There has not
been, nor will be as we see it, enough
sugar for even their present meagre
and depressing ration unless they send
ships to remote markets for It. If we
in our greed and gluttony force them
either to further reduce their ration
or to send these ships we will have
done damage to our abilities to win
this war.
"If we send the ehlps to Jav*
for 250,000 tons of sugar next year
we will have necessitated the em
ployment of eleven extra ships for
one year. These ehlps—If used in
transporting troops—would take
150,000 to 200,000 men to France."
Reason for World Shortage.
As 31r. Hoover pointed out, the
United States, Canada and England
were sugar Importing countries before
the war ' whIle France and Italy were
very nearly self supporting. The main
gouroes ot the worlds sugar supply
was Germany and neighboring powers,
the West Indies and the East Indies.
German sugar is no longer available,
os It is used entirely In Germany,
which also absorbs sugar of surround
ing countries.
England can no longer buy 1,400,000
long tons of sugar each year from
Germany. The French sugar produc
tion has dropped from 750,iKX) to 210,
000 tons. The Italian production ha*
fallen from 210,000 tons to 75,000 ton*.
Thu* three countries were thrown
upon East and West Itidinn sources
for 1,925.000 ton* annually to maintain
their normal consumption.
Because of the world's shipping
shortage the allied Dations started
drawing on the West Indies for sugar;
East Indian sugar took three times
the number of ships, since the dis
tance was three times as great. Sud
denly the west was called on to fur
nish and did furnish 1,420.000 tons of
sugar to Europe when 800,000 tons a
year was the pre-war demand. The
ailles had drawn from Java 400,000
ton* before the shipping situation be
came acute.
"Tn spite of these shipments," Mr.
Hoover stated the other day, "the
English government in August reduced
the household sugar ration to a basis
of 24 pounds per annum per capita.
j pound of sugar a month. Even thl*
Today the sugar situation may
b* *ummarizod by stating that If
America will reduce it* sugar con
eumptlon 10 to 15 per cent, this
nation will be able to send 200,COO
more «oldiers to France.
And In September the French govern- 1
ment reduced their household ration I
to 13 2-10 pounds a yenr, or a bii over !
its j
meagre ration could not be filled by
the French government ft was found
early ln th* fall. America was then
asked for 100.000 tons of sugar and
succeeded in sending 83,000 tons by
December 1. The French request wa*
granted because the American house
hold consumption was then at least 55
pounds per person, and it was consid
ered the duty of nmin'aining e
French morale made our course clear."

Control of Cane Sefinero' Profit*.
"Immediately upon the establish
ment of the fond administration." M»
noover said, "an examination was
j made of the costs and profits of refln
! ing and it was tinully determined that
i the spread between the cost of raw
1 and the sale of refined cane sugar
should be limited to $1.30 per hundred
! pound*. The pre-war differential had
' averaged atout 83 cents and increased
J costs were found to have been Impos

fining, losses, cost of bags, labor, lnsur
I ance, iniarest and other things, rather
j more than cover the dllterenca After
j prolonged negotiations
the refiners
were placed under agreement estab
lishing these limit* on October I, and
anything over this amount to be agreed
extortionate under the law.
"In the course of these Investiga
tions It was found hy canvass of the
Cuban producers that their sugar had,
during the flist nine months of the
past year, sold for an average of about
$4.24 per hundred f. o. b. Cuba, to
which duty and freight added to the
refiners' cost amount to about $5 66
per hundred. The average sale price
of granulated by various refineries, ac
cording to our Investigation, was about
$7.30 per hundred, or a differential of
$ 1 . 84 .
"In reducing the differential to $1 80
there was a saving to the public of 54
cents per hundred. Had such a dif
ferential been In use from the 1st of
.Tauuary, 1917. the public would bava
saved in the first nine months of the
year about $24 800.000."
Next Year.
With a view to more efficient organ
ization of the trudo In Imported sugars
next year two committees have been
formed by the food administration :
L A committee comprising repre
sentative* of all of the elements of
American cane refining groups. The
principal duty of thi* committee Is to
divide the sugar Imports pro rata to
their various capacities and see that
absolute Justice 1* done to every ra
finer.
2. A committee comprising three rep
resentatives of the English, French
and Italian governments; two repre
sentatives of the Americun refiners,
with a member of the food administra
tion. Only two of the committee have
arrived from Europe, but they repre
sent the allied governments. The du
ties of this committee are to determine
the most economical sources from a
transport point of view of all the al
lies to arrange transport at uniform
rates, to distribute the foreign sugar
between the United States and allies,
subject to the approval of the Ameri
can, English, French and Italian gov
ernments.
This committee, while holding strong
views as to the price to be paid for
Cuban sugar, has not had the final
voice. This voice has rested In the
governments concerned, together with
the Cuban government, and l wish to
state emphatically that all of the gen
tlemen concerned as good commercial
men *.ave endeavored with the utmost
patience and skill to secure a lower
r n b a , or egual to about $0 duty paid
New York.
"Thi* price should eventuate,"
Mr. Hoover said, "to about $ 7 .30
per hundred for refined sugar from
the refiners at seaboard points or
should place sugar in the hands of
the consumer at from 8^4 to 9
cents per pound, depending upon
locality and conditions of frade, or
at from i to 2 cents below the
prices of August last and from one
half to a cent per pound cheaper
than today.
