.Senator Reed, who was chairman of the Senate Committee's inquiry into
the sugar famine, a short time ago, a'most broke op the meeting when Ire
interrupted the testimony given by Earl D. Babst " head of the American
Sugar Refiining Company, and Mr. Hoover's chairman' of the International
Committee on sugar. ....
Babst had denied that he and the other members of the committee had
fixed the price of the Cuban sugar crop.
"Your committee controls the purchase of all Cuban sugar anj a!i
ether sugars, from Anitnea, Fra-nce, Ita'y and Great Dritian, docs it not,"
;TiCd Senator Keed.
"Yes." rcp'rod tht sugar trust man.
"Then, why dcosn't it fix the prices."
"We have no power to fix pi-ce.s. We can on'y arrange a price above
which we will not approve purchases," was Mr. lkibt's answer.
"The gentleman takes the position of a man in the murder trial it was
net the bullet, but the whole in the man's heart that caused death," inter
rupted the Missouri Senator. j
Mr. Babst thereupon charged the Senate Committee with an attempt to j
show that his company had profited when other .sugar wcnl up to the pr'v:
asked for Cuban .vjgar. We do not knew that tho Senate att mpted to j
show that Mr. Bab.-i hid benefitted by the appointment he received from :
Mr. Hoover, but it is rspparent to all that Babst shou'd not have been pV.cc!
"n this imnortant notation.
j It is not necessary to pat a trust man in charge of a commodity which i
i h'f- company :"pparer.fy controls. That has been the trouble with so many
Ml Mr. Hoover's appointments. . i
Newspapers are r&iirrally charging that Senator Reed was unfair in !
this inquiry, but we cun see no danger from an investigation of this kir.d. ,
I'rosdcnt Wilson enthusiastica-l'y endorsed them. j
Ii is si y to say that Senator Reed hoped to ombarass Pres'dent W.'l-Tjn '
i oy masting nii sugar .investigation thorough, l 'resident Wi'so' cordd v I j
,1k- expected to look after everything at cne time or to be 'everywhere r.t '
cr.ee. He expected Congress to assist, him in protecting the Government
jrnd the ncop'o.
j There is no horse so gentle thct it can be driven without a br die under
j rJi circumstances, and there is no governmental machine that wil' opeiate
j peipetua'ly and we'd without supervis ion. This was all Stnator "ce,i at- :
tempted to do. He has been cal'cd "the watchtlog at Washington,'" and lh 1 '
! pubFc has been convinced that anyone who attempts to trespass v. h- ro ho '
keep vigil is in dai.gcr of being treed.
