"tfice - Consul Murphy
Sends in Comprehensive
Report.
CONVENTION HELD AT NMGBURG.
EVERY PHASE OF THE SUBJECT
WAS VERY FUIXY
DISCUSSED.
German Growers are Carefully
gating the Conditions of
Sugar Production Throughout
the World.
SiaC Com jwwJeoce ot Tb
Washington. D. C, Jul? 2S. 1900.
The state department gave out today
two reports from George H. Murphy,
United States vice consul at Magde
burg, on the subjects of "German beet
sucar industry and Germany's sugar
exportation." He says that the fiftieth
annual convention of manufacturers
and others interested in the German
suear industry was held at Magdeburg
en May 29 to June 1, 1500. In connection
with this cSnvention there was an
Interesting exposition of sugar machinery,
showing all recent improvements
and inventions. Five hundred and (en
members of the sugar union were present,
representing one hundred and seventy-three
factories. He reports that
some of the most interesting mattera
dlscusixid were the following:
JMThe Imperial law regulating trade
In artificial sweet stuffs, which was in-Intended
to restrict the sale of saccharine,
has had an entirely contrary
effect; for, according to the statements
of saccharine mauufacturers, the
product last year was equivalent
In sweetuess to over 1,000,000
(50,000 metric tons) of sugar. Consequently
the consumption of over
centners of sugar was prevented,
causing a loss to the Imperial treasury
of 10.000.000 marks ($2,3S0,000).
"The Imposing of a tax on saccharine
und the requirement by law that it be
told as a drug are accordingly demanded
with Justice by the sugar Industry.
Unfortunately this question cannot be
brought up for settlement prior to the
next meeting of the relchstng.
"The discovery of saccharine and other
sweet stuffs has caused some sugar
producers much anxiety, and it Is fear-
vd that still other similar substances
will in the future bu discovered by
chemists. Fuithermorc, some
are afraid that a method will
eventually be found by which beet sugar
can be produced synthetically.
Neither of these dangers need, however,
be feared at present. It is entirely
unlikely that it will ever be
possible to produce from pit coal iar
genuine sugar in large enough quantities
and sutllelently cheap to seriously
Injure the sugar Industry. Farmers may
also find comfort in knowing that,
while it Is not Impossible (In view of
the rapid advances now being made In
chemical knowledge) that a process
may be found for producing genuine
beet sugar artificially, it is nevertheless
certain that when the synthesis of
bugar is discovered, carbon hydrates
will be needed as matetrlal, especially
in the form of starch llower. Accordingly,
even If a sufficiently cheap process
be found, the only result will be
that other plants containing starch,
the potato, for iustance, will compete
with beets as raw material In sugar
fnbi Ications.
"Another matter which Is considered
very important Is that Polish laborers
who enter Germany every spring
should not be compelled to leave lite
couutry before a. fixed date, which
should be the same In all parts of tha
empire Farm hands are so scarce that
difficulty is experienced in raising
enough sugar beets to supply the demand
of the factories. The government
has accordingly been asked to establish
a general rule permitting such
useful aliens to remain in the country
each year until the eud of Deceiriber.
"Condition and Development of the
Cuban Industry." An interesting report
on this subject was ad.htf3Governor
Tal. privy counsellonProT. Dr.
member of ifie relchstag, who
has recently studied conditions In Cuba.,
Dr. Paasche took the ground that
the Gorman sugar industry is a world
industry In the strictest sense of the
term, and that Its welfare Is therefoie
dependent upon the maintenance of the
position which it now holds in the
world's markets. AH measures adopt--ed
for the purpose of influencing the
home market, no matter how import
ant they may be. will not, therefore.
alone suffice to keep the industry in a
healthy condition. German sugar producers
must continue to keep their
eyes fixed ou all competing- hinds. Dr.
1'aasche's visit to the United Staks
and Cuba was solely for the purpose of
ascertaining If dangers threatened the
German sugar industry there. He
thinks that If Cuba were annexed to
the United States and the Cuban sugar
industry enjoyed the advantages of the
American customs tatrlff. thereby securing
increased prices. American cap-
ital tuJKhtractei by the increased
"Thednlr5 thing for the German sugar
industry to do." he says, "Is to face
these dangers with united forces, continuing
Its present policy. Thus, in
spite of whatever may happen. Germany
will be able to maintain the topmost
place which It has now gained."
Another question considered by the
conference was: "Is it advisable from
time to time to send an expert to the
various sugar producing countries to
prepare reports In regard to crop prospects
and existing conditions?"
This question was practically decided
In th affirmative, though
thought beat to do this only occasion;
ally, and when there is some special
reason for such action.
"Tho influence which chemistry has
exerted upon the production of sugar
has been very great and has rendered
possible the victory of the beet over
eugar case, the production of beet sugar
In the world being now twice as
large as that of cane sugar. No existing
Industry is subjected to such thorough
and scientific control am Is the
Owrmaa bei sugar Industry. In
8ug IwtsriM tier ara bow
ployed aboct oce thousand chemists
who give -their undivided Attention to
farthering the Interests of the Industry.
This trained personnel Is of the
greatest importance.
The production of sugar from molasses
has bees of great Importance to
the Industry, and It first led to the employment
of chemists. The utilization
of waste materials in the manufacture
of by-products has also had a beaeSdal
effect. By cooking molasses dregs, after
the removal of thelsugar, potash
is won "which is preferred to all othars
tn the soap Industry. From the parts
3f the same material which contain nitrogen,
cyanide of potassum Is also
produced. This substance is much
used In modern gold mining In the
Transvaal, and also to a growing extent
In the United States. It is believed
that a method will be found sooner
or later for using electricity in the
clarification of beet juice."
Discussing sugar exportation, the
vice consul says further:
"Germany's exportation of raw sugar
has always exceeded that of any
ather European country. In the exportation
of refined sugar, however, it
was third down in
""In .the eleven years which have
elapsed since 1SS9 Germany's exportation
of raw sugar has Increased from
JiS.210 metric tons (2204.6 pounds) tn
153,531 metric tons, the amount being
largest in 1SS7 (GSL516 metric ton3),
when the United States took 367,301
metric tons before July 24, the date on
hlch the new customs tatrlff went
nto force. This amount exceeded Germany's
entire exportation of raw sugar
in 1SS9, arfd was twice as much as was
mipped to the United States daring
.he entire year of 1S99. The principal
auyer of German raw sugar prior to
1897 was Great Britain, which in no
year took less than 200,000 metric tons.
The sale of German raw sugar in
British North America Is of great importance,
having increased considerably
juring the past three years. The exportation
of loaf sugar has recently
ncreased considerably, owing especially
to the magnitude of the English
demand.
"Although the exportation of German
raw sugar to the United States is
great, there Is small demand there
for loaf Eugar, the amount sent In 1S35
md again In 1895 being only 10,000
metric tons, while in 1S99 it was only
JS4 metric tons. This was caused by
ligh customs duties in the United
states. The market conditions in Jap-in,
Norway and Switzerland are now
especially encouraging, each of these
ountries taking more than 10,000 metric
tous of German loaf sugar
There has been a marked falling
jff in shipments to Holland, Chill and
British India. This falling off is particularly
noticed In shipments to British
India, as large quantities were exported
to the country annually between
IS92 and 1S9S. The amount sent to Italy
.s inconsiderable. Of other sorts of
only comparatively small quantities
are being exported, the principal
purchasers being Great Britain, Norway,
Portugal and Uruguay."
THE LATE UNPLEASANTNESS."
The Confederate "veterans in the,ir
inuual convention In Louisville decided
that the war of should bo
known as the "war between the
States." This is the name that Alexander
H. Stephens favored, and it Is tha
ano generally used by the people of
the South in speaking of that war. the
N'orthern people calling it the
Strange is It that neither name
a a correct definition of the event. All
know that there was no rebellion.
States that had sovereignty could not
je guilty of rebellion. Neither was It
i war between the States, but actually
i war between two governments mado
jp of the States. Some writers call It
l civil war, yet It was not a war between
citizens In their civil capacity,
but. as before said, a war between
organized governments. There
is, in fact, no concise way of naming
he conflict; hence these misnomers.
Possibly the best title would be the
simple one of calling It by the years
af its beginning and close, namely, the
war of Mobile Register.
