that a thousand tioketa wore sold in

went forth for a soasoas work in the
beot tields, and advocates tho building
of a beet sugar factory in Lincoln in or
dor that thoso laborers may bo employ
en at uome ana spena their money
thoro Attontion is called to tho fact
that soven now factories aro projected
in Michigan, four in Wisconsin and
throo In Illinois, but it is not mentioned
that tho completion ot these factories
aro contingent to a gicat extent on the
augar legislation now before congress,
Tho cost ot the erection of the average
beet sugar plant is about 1500,000, or an
amount ot nearly four rallltoa dollars
for tho factorios contemplated. It is
not to be wondored at that tho repre
seatativos of this vast amount of capi
tal should hesitate to invest it in the

but it is to be wondered at that promi-
