ROOT BEER DEALER BREAKS SUGAR RULE For refusing to declare the stock of sugar ho had on hand on July 1, and for making a later report which cow ered only half ot his supply, Charloi Gordon, of 1123 Seventeenth street, Denver, has been ordered lo close hi* root beer establishment for thirty | days by J. N. Bunfllck, chairman ol the Sugar Division, and Thomas B. Stearns, bead of tho United States Food Administration. Gordon was given a hearing before food officials who not 08$r ordered him to suspend business for thirty days, but otto confiscated 800 poiredi of sugar he had hidden awaj' in an un used cask. The confiscated sugar wtfl be sold by the food administration and the money obtained from sale will be turned over to tho Denver chaptei of Amorican Red Cross. The pro ceeds. In this case, will amount ta about $70.00. The soft drink brewer admitted bit guilt, and the only exense ho offered was that he was saving the sugar •‘for a rainy day.” NEW BEEF RULES MEET APPROVAL "Thn new meat roguEr.Honn are rtol only tho most succor* ful ones we have had up to the prcrjcnt time, but hotel and restaurant mtAi of tho stats soc-m to find thorn vr fry satisfactory,** declared E. E. Lucas, head of the hotel and restauran L division of tht U. S. Food Admlnls trmtlon. Tholigh tho new regulations have boon in effect less than two wooka, it Is estimated that practically all of the public . ating placet; in Colorado have designated to the J jotcl division their choice of mid-day or evening meal. The prohibition of sorvice of beef does not extend f o beef by-product s, such as sweetbreads, brains, tongixs, liver, heart, and so forth. Neither la It a violation to f.ervo mutton, veal or pork at any mcaf I any day. Tho definite U mount of meat .-wved under tho new regime will not b<» tfe term I nod until after August 1, «turn the July com/un iption for 191 S will be compared w/lth that of July, 1917. NEW SUGAR RESTRICTIONS IN ENGLAND Ra dical restrictions in the usa of sufr/r during tho year beginning Juno I. ID IK, have been announced by the British Ministry of >\)od, with respect re manufacturers other than the mak ers of jam. comlen.iod milk and beer. The total quantity of sugar which may be used, during tho whole year ending May 31, 1919. is 25 per cent of .the quantity used by these manufac turers in 1915. Tlio order applies to manuf.tctnrers of xmgar confectionery and chocolate, retries, biscuits, can died peel and preserved and crystal lizufl fruits, drugs and medicinal prep arations, mineral waters, other bever ages (expopt beer and stout), or any other product requiring sugar. ITALIAN FOOD SITUATION GRAVE. Tho food situation in Italy continues to b*- very grave. The shortage most conspicuous at present is that of meat. In order to cope with this shortage there have been in effect since May 15 throe meatless days a week, and ou Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of each week meat can neither be served In public eating places nor bought for home consump tion. The price of moat rose tre mendously the past spring, and beef is now ranging from 72 to 89 cent* per pound, with venl from GG to 79 cenfe a pound.

FAIR PRICE COMMITTEE FORMED TO REGULATE PRICES ON STAPLES Protection for both consumer and retAiler will be the ttkttle cry of the "Fair Price” compaittees recently formed by the United States Food Ad ministration in every state in the uhion and in every county in three •fates. “The dealer in food commodities honest or get out of declared T, B. WUUand IfeaTVMre Denver fair Price committee. The purpose of th* reßtoiittee is to establish just and r**«9 blc s « l,lD * prises to consumers o» many of tfcb leading articles. Strenuous efforts, with etrinkent penalty powors at tached, win do made to eliminate short, weights, mlsreproseutations and prof iteering. The members of the committee, at their first meeting in tho Denver | headquarters a few days ago, rocom- j mended that housewives familiarise, themselves with the price lists and the | quality of the goods they buy, so that they will be ablo to get the kind of ar ticle they pay for and are not sold low grade goods at high grade prices. The “Fair Price” committee.is com posed of two women representing the various labor organizations, two wom en representing other woman organiz ations, four retailers, two wholesale fruit and produce dealers and two wholesalo grocers. HOOVER GIVES REASON LOW SUGAR SUPPLIES “A number of causes have cumulat ed to make our sugar position more difficult than wo could have anticipat ed at the beginning of the year." says United States Food Administrator Herbert Hoovor in a communication received by Federal Food Administra tor Thomas B. Stearns. ‘ The in creased shipping needed by our grow ing army in France has necessitated the curtailment of sugar transporta tion, particularly from the age, and has thus reduced supplies both to the allies .and ourselves from remote markets. Some of tho accessi ble sugar producing ureas have proved a less yiold than whs anticipated sued as certain of the West Indian Islands. Tile domestic beet und Louisiana crops have falleu below anticipation. There has been some destruction of beet su- I gar factories in the battle area oT France and Italy. We have lost sugar tty submarines. “As close an estimate as we can make indicates a reasonable expecta tion from all sources of about 1,600.000 tons of sugar for the United States consumption during the last half of pbe present year. This is based upon the maintenance of the present maa gr* allied ration. An improvement In shipping conditions would of course roliove this situation as quantities of suga.v are in unavailable markets. We must, however, base the distribution of sugar during the next six months, up on the above footing. After that period tho new West Indian crop will be available. •‘This supply of 3,600,000 tons neces sitates a considerable reduction in our J consumption. To provide three Bound* of sugar per person per month for household use, to take care of our gray and navy and to provide for the accessary preservation of fruit, milk, etc . will require about 1.500,000 tons of for the six months.—Herbert Hoover.
