Richardson of Great Falls is in the city in the interest of Sena tor Hoffman's beet sugar bill. Mr. Richardson stated to the Herald to day that if the bill became a law he could promise the investment of something less than a haif million dollars in a beet sugar plant to be lo cated in Gallatin county. "Utah capitalists who have success tally operated several plants in that state and put hundreds of thousands oi dollars into the pockets of the tanners, said Mr. Richardson, "are interested in starting a similar pro ject here. Front the investigation ami experiments that have been made it is certain tjiat tne best sugar beets in the world can be grown in Galla tin county, and lor that matter in many other parts of Montana. "All tlmi is asked of the legisla ture is the assurance that the bounty will he paid i'or a period of ten years, and the necessary capital will be ad vanced to put up tlie plant, and have it running by the time the next legis ture meets. Tlie bill introduced by senator Hoffman does not vary from tlie existing law. except that it makes provision for the appointment of a state inspector to keep a check on the product of the plant, his salary to ne paid by the corporation owning tne factory. The bill also provides • nat the bounty shall continue for ten years. To us that is the import ant feature as it is necessary that we have assurance that the legisla ture will not immediately repeal the iaw after the plant lias been erected at a large cost. "Tlie Utah beet sugar factories in a large measure supply the home de mand, in fact a good deal of Utah sugr is sold in this state. The par ties interested in the project, if the law is not passed in this state, will increase their facilities in Utah and Montana will be consumers for Utah sugar. However, if this plant is started the sugar, will be marketed in j.iontana and it can be delivered not only cheaper to the consumer, but it will be made from the products of •he farm, and the first cost goes right into the pockets of the home pro ducers. "Around these factories, spring up little farms, poor men's farms, and the increased taxes that are paid by reason of the new market for a com paratively new product more than Pays the bounty which the state is asked to give, to encourage this in dustry. The by-products are not to lie overlooked either, as molasses which by reason of the freight, comes quite high in this country, can be placed in the market much cheaper than the product of an eastern fac tory. The cost of the sugar to the consumer is also reduced, as the fac tory has no freight to pay. On the other hand beet sugar is made more cheaply,than granulate«. In quality it is just as good as the cane sugar. Another advantage that these fac tories have is that they promote the dairy industry. The pulp after the constituents are extracted is excellent feed for dairy cows, and usually a large dairy and creamery is started in connection with the plant. In Utah the plan has assumed such large proportions that it has been neces sary to establish crushing stations at various distances from the plant, and • he juice is run into large vats through pipes from these branches and tlie remaining pulp fed to dairy cows. "In a number of states bounties have been paid on sugar beets—in one case as high as two cents per pound. Farmers can raise from 14 to 20 tons to the acre and receive in the neighborhood of $.4.50 per ton for the product. Every place where sugar beets have been raised the pro duct has proved a most satisfactory and profitable one. At present there are 32 beet sugar factories In opera tion in the United States and a dozen more in course of construction. The importations of sugar have been de creasing constantly during the last decade and a large part of the pro duct of the country is now made from beets." COMPOSER DEAD. Brussels.
