AIMED AT THE TRUST.
Senator Hoffman's Bounty Bill May
Result In Home Produced Sugar.
1). A. 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
"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
"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
Brussels. Mar. 5,—Peter Benoit,
a distinguished composer, 1 b dead.
