President Approves Ex
tension Of Control
Over Output.
Authority Granted May Not
Be Exercised, Secretary
Tumulty Announces.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 1. Presl
dent Wilson has slgnod thn McNary
bill continuing tlio United States su
gar equalization buard through 1920.
It was announced today at tho white
houso that, Ills signature had been
attached before midnight last night.
Secretary Tumulty In making the
announcement issued this statement:
"Tho president has signed tho su
gar control hill. The bill confers
discretion on lh president in tin'
matter of purchasing sugar from
Cuba. It is doubtful whether It will
be practicable or wise for the presi
dent lo exercise the power conferred
so far as tho purchase and distribu
tion of sugar are poncernnd."
Koine of the Ciili.ui sugar has al
ready been purchased and there Is
no central control over sugar in
Cuba as there was last year and I'
might therefore be Impossible for
the government now to slop In nnd
purchttso the sugar without Increas
ing the in li o to the consumer The
bill, however, continues the licens
ing power also and this power may
be used to assist In controlling the
profiteering among distributors
Much Cuban sugar Is coming In now
and IndluHtloris are that prices have
reached their peak and that there
will be a tendency for prices to fall

properly, It Is not more serious than
the condition facing tho country,"
Mr. Elliott said today.
"Transportation faculties must be

"Slnco the government took con
trol only 100,000 new freight cars
have been bought, so that at the
end of 1919 there probably are not
more than 3,400,000 freight curs In
the country slightly more than In
1915. It Is tint too much to say
that probably (3,000.000,000 should
be spent for cars, euglncu and shop
furilliles by American railroads
within tho next fow years. If tho
