"During a tour of continental Europe
flvo years ago 1 nas Impressed by tlio l r.o
ncrcaRo of lands planted In sugar beets.
On the line of the Ilclginn , French , German
anil Austrian inlluays , sugar licet fields
covered nlniMt every fool of the ground
nllhln sight on both sldrs of the tracks ,
just nn the fields of Indian corn greet the
cjo o [ tlio traveler on tlio lines ot tlio rail
road * through the great American corn bolt
Almost o\cry town traversed by railroads
In Hnuthrastcni France , southern am many
Mom la and Iloheinla has IU beet migar
factory , clearly discernible from the trains ,
and the principal proUnelal towns boast
Inrun rcflneilcs , to which the law sugar
produced In the smaller factories Is shipped
and ron\crtod Into clnrlllttl granulated or
loaf sugar. The topogiophy of tlio country
where sugar beet culture wai carried on
Abroad on the scats tccallcd tlio
rolling prairies of Iowa and Nebraska , and
tlio soil , aa far as I could discover , was
very much the same asvc find It In till *
"The extent to which the beet sugar In
dustry has been fostered and developed In
European countries confirmed the belief
which for mare tlnn a quarter of a century
has been entertained and publicly expiesand
hy mp that Ncbranka Is destined to become
the foremost beet sugar state , In all Amer
"Tito area planted In sugar beets In
European countilcs Is computed at .1,000,000
ncres. The area under cultivation In sugar
beets In Germany during the year 1S95 was
1,190,800 acres. Tlio production of beet
sugar In Germany for that year U computed
nt 1,870,000 tons. In 1854 It only amounted
to 1,180,000 tons. The consumption of iugar
beets has Increased In Germany from 9,800-
000 tons to 10.030,000 tons.
"According to careful estimates pi'cparcd
- from tlio most icllablc sources , the total
' number of beet sugar factories actively In
operation In Europe In 1893 was 1,431 , of
which Germany has 101 , Franco 373 , Austria
211 , Russia 227 , Icllum ! ( ; 111 , Holland 30
nnd nil other countries 45.
"The growth of the sugar beet Industry
y * la strikingly exemplified by the Increase In
the number of factories In Austro-IIungary
In 18C7 Austro-IIungary had 151 factories
In 1S70 It has 181 factories , and by 1875 , the
numhci had reached 22C. licet sugar cul
ture In Austro-IIungary Is , bow ever , chiefly
confined to Dohemla and Moravia. In 1889
Dohcmli had 153 and .Moravia fifty-four
factories , while the remaining states of
Auatro-Hungary had but thlrt-tv\o.
"In 1SS1 the total production ot beet
sugar In the world was computed at 1,630-
000 tons. rive jearn later , In 1SSG , the
beet sugar product of the world was com-
ruled at 2,223,000 tons. 11 y 1891 It had
reached 3,740,000 tons. The product of 1S9I
waa computed at 3,895,000 tons. Subdivided
among the leading beet sugar producing
countries , wo nnd that Germany , In 1894 ,
produced 1.38I.C03 tons ; Austria , 841,809 tons ,
( Trance , C79.111 tons ; Russia , CCO.OOO tons ,
Belgium. 235,000 tons ; Holland , 75,015 tons ,
and other countries of Europe , 111,000 tons ,
making In all , 3,883,538 tons , an Increase for
the years 1S93-94 of about 470,000 tons. Hut
the year 1895 witnessed an enormous Increase
In beet sugar production , the aggregate
product being computed at 4,975,000 tons ,
which Is nearly 1,100,000 tons more than was
produced during the preceding year.
"Tho total yield of raw sugar In Germany
In 189" was 1,844,508 tons , as against 1,381-
C03 tons In 1891 , This enormous Increase
In sugar production has brought about &
inarKcil fall In the prleo of sugar , and has
proved ru Icons to the cane sugar raisers of
Ilrarll and the West Indies.
"During recent vcars the sugar con-
sumption of the civilized world has con
tinue ! at an annual Increase of 250,000 tons
It will be seen , therefore , that the excess
In production for the year 1S95 Is equal to
( our jenra of Increase In consumption. This
marked overproduction , chiefly , hone\cr , of
beet sygnr , has had the effect of depressing
prices so that sugar In the English marKcts
lias fallen from $3 04 per 100 pounds to $2.09
per 10) pounds.
"Thn overproduction of beet sugar Is
ascribed to the bounties paid by European
Kiigar beet countries to stimulate domestic
production. An International conference Is
about to bo called w Ith a view to the re
peal or lowering of the sugar bounties. Gei-
inany Is now paying from $1 to $1.CO per
100 pounds as export bounty. It Is doubt
ful , however , whether Franco will join In
this movement , because the yield of sac
charine matter In the beets raised In Ger
many Is much heavier than that of beets
raised In France , nnd Franco therefore can
not successfully compete with Germany In
the worll'b mnikots.
"Tho world's ptoductlon of cane sugar Is
estimated at 2,200,000 tons per annum , or
less than one-half of the quantity of sugar
produced from beets. While beet sugar
production has shown aery marked In
crease within the last ten jcars , the pro
duction of cane sugar has shown but a
ellght Increase , and since the great fall In
the prlco of the product the culture of cane
for sugar has been curtailed and the pro
duct Is no greater now than It was ten
3 cars ago.
"The annual export bounties paid by
foreign go > cinmcnts are estimated at $20-
875.000 , besides which there are paid draw
backs equal to $4,250,000 moro per annum ,
80 that the total amount of bounties and
drawbacks which Europe now pays to stlra-
ul.Vo beet sugar production aggregates $25-
000,000 a year. As a remedy against o\cr-
productlon It Is non urged that the duties
Imposed upon sugar In European
countries that do not produce sugar
bo either lowered or abolished , so
ea to Increase the consumption of sugar.
Thcbo duties In some European coun
tries are so high as to inaKo the use of sugar
practically prohibitory. It Is strikingly
singular , also , that In the gugar-produclng
countries of Europe In Germany , Austria
and France the a\crago consumption per
capita Is only two-fifths of the consumption
per capita lu Great Ilrltaln and the United
States. The cause of this Is , doubtless the
high prlco at which sugar Is retailed to the
common pcoplo of these countrlra. licet
cuRar which 1s landed now. In the United
Stolen at from 3 to 4 cents per pound by
German exporters , sells In Germany for
7'i cents a pound at retail. This marked

'At tit-
dlffetdico In the homo and expert price tit
sugar in Germany , and also lu France and
Austria , Is duo to thn fact that a. heavy
domestic consumption tax If levied upon the
manufacturer * ! of sugar which compels
them to exact high prlcen from their pa
trons lu their onn countries , while the
bounty paid them for sugar exported to
foreign countries nnd the drawback , nr the
remission of the homo tax on this exported
product , enables tlirnt to cut the price In the
foreign market. .
"Consul Mason , representing the
United Stat < - at Pr.inl < foit , In discussing the
sugar ptoblem with which Europe and par
ticularly Germany , Is bound to grapple ,
says :
" 'There Is , perhaps , no economic ques
tion concerning which public opinion In
this country Is mor sharply divided than
that whleh concerns the pioper tt eminent
of the sugar Induatr ) by the national gov
ernment. On the one blind , the beet
growcis ami ingnr munufncturers Insist
Hint blncesucir b'-ots uro About the only
clop Unit cr.n now * bo iiovvn ; with | tollt
In Ciermnnf , Itt \ tlio duly of the state to
continue the bounty on exported sugnrH
and piotoct thin culture agnliitt nil com
petition nnd contingencies. On the other
Imtiil , It Is npsertod Hint the bounties have
stimulated augur piodtletlon to n point fnr
beyond HH normal limits nnd that the
proper course would bu to nbollnh the boun
ties , reduce or repent the tnon sutwr
conHtimcd nt home , and , by thus stimulat
ing local consumption , render the beet pro
ducers less dependent upon exports , In
which they must mo"t and cope vvlt'i eom-
petltlon for which Germany Is by nut uro
untilrpared. As It Is , the Germans export
about two tons of uugnr for ovcry ton
which Is used at home , and , while the pro
duction ban risen from 9UO.UOO tons to 1,825-
000 tona or moio than doubled In the past
seven ycuis , the homo consumption of
mignr has risen only 200,0'X ' ) tons during the
wuno period , and amounted to only 611,000
tons , or twonly-Light pounds tier capita , ns
against scvonty-thicu and two thirds pounds
per capita In Gteaf Britain , and seventy-
seven pounds Jn the United States. In
other European countries the case Is still
worse , the sugar consumption In Austro-
IIungary being twenty-eight pounds , and
twenty-eight and one-half pounds In
France , while IlelKlum only consumes
twenty-two pounds per capita nnd Russia
In Europe on ! } consumes fourteen and one-
half pounds tier capita. If the consumption
wcro on the same basis as that of Great
Britain , Germany alone would use 1,700,000
tons of sugar , and Fiance and Auatrla each
123,000 tons more , a consumption which
would quickly exhaust the phenomenal
product of 1S93 and lift prices beyond the
need of bounties or any other nrtlcllclal
form of protection.
" 'The reason for the limited sugar con
sumption In European countries hi mainly
Ha high price consequent upon the enormous
taxes which arc levied upon Its manufac
ture when not ext > ortcd and which , nccord-
Inif to a writer In the Prnnltfort Zeltunc- .
amounted to $119 per ton In France , 15150
In Germany , the same In Austro-IIungary ,
and $170 per ton In Belgium , ngnlnst freu
sugar In Orent Britain nnd a very Blight
Import duty In the United States '
"Next to Germany , Franco has done more
to foster the beet sugar Industry than nnj
other nation abroad. In 1894 more than
1,700,000 acres of land vvero planted In beets ,
giving a total production of 18,400,000 tons
of the root , or an average of nearly eleven
tons per acre , worth about $1 per ton for
forage and manufacture ot beet sugar. 'From '
10 per cent to 50 per cent of the beet root
raised In Franco Is manufactured Into sugar.
According to Consul Chancellor at Havre ,
the experience of French growers shows that
the oxpcnso of cultivating an aero of bccta
Is ns follows :
I'rcpirlng land $ 3 00
Plvo pounds of seed V )
Hand wee-ding nnd thinning 1.21
Working and transplanting 1.23
Second working and transplanting. . . . 1.00
Gathering and piling beets and tops. . 3.00
Total per acre $10.00
"In the nbovo no estimate Is made for the
cost of fcstllircrs , because It Is not always
necessary to employ fertilizers. The average
annual yield lu Franco Is from ten to twelve
tons of beet root per ncro of land. In
Franco there Is absolutely no waste of the
product. Every part of the \egutablo la
utlllrcd and rendered valuable In ono way
or another , whether Is It used for sugar or
forage , or the two combined. Not only the
roots but the leaves and stalks ure utilized
as food for cattle. The dried leaves and
stalks afford better nourishment for
cattle and sheep during the wln'er
than any other forage that could
bo cultivated. It Is moreover stated that a
largo prollt la dcilvcd flora selling the
loaves to tobacco manufacturers , who pre
pare and mix them with tobacco , which Is
made Jute cigars and cigarettes or smoking
tobacco. Jt has been asserted that certain
Fiench beet growers leallro cnougn from
loaves sold for tobacco to pay all expense ? ,
for cultivating the crop. At the present
time experiments ore being made for the
conversion of the juice of sugar beets Into
alcohol at a higher profit than Is now de-
rlvod from their conversion Into sugar. In
Franco a larger acreage of sugar beets Is
cultivated for forage than for nugar. The
average value of beets used for forage Id
estimated at $3 CO per ton , while the average
value of the beet for sugar Is computed at
$1.30 1'cr ton.
"Tho consumption of French sugar In
foreign countries has been curtailed by ruin
ous competition , notably by Germany , which
has forced Its foreign export trade by high
bounties. A bill la now before the French
parliament providing for an export bounty
on Trench sugar In order to enable the
French manufacturers to compete more suc
cessfully In foreign markets , and especially
the English marUct , which up to this time
has purchased about one-half of all the
sugar exported from France. It Is rather
singular that France has practically aban
doned the United States to Germany and
Austria as a field for exporting sugar , the
chief purchasers of French sugar , after
England , being Switzerland , Turkey , Mo
rocco , Argentine , Algeria , Tunis , Uruguay
and Chill.
"Austria Is not very far behind Germany
In stimulating beet sugar production and
oxport. Under the old law the Austrian
government appropriated annually a fraction
over J2.000.000 for sugar export bounties.
Under the now law , which went Into effect
August 1 , 1896 , the amount voted for boun
ties will exceed $3,000,000 a year. Uoth
Franco and Austria levy heavy import duties
on sugar to prevent German sugar from
entering nnd competing with their own
product , by reason of the much heavier
bounties which Germany U paying than
Franco or Austria.
"Tho deductions to bo drawn from thcsu
facta and figure * are suggestive. As the
greatest sugar consuming nation In the
world , the United States Is now paying
tribute of over $120,000,000 a > ear to for
eign countries , when It can and should pro
duce all the BUgar Its people consume.
Whllo four European countries Germany ,
Prance , Russia and Austrla-IIuncary boast
' of 1,2 5 beet UR r factorlm , the United
Stains only has nlno sugar beet factories ,
four ot which Arc located In California ,
two In Nebraska and ono each In Utah ,
Now Mexico ar.d Virginia. Whllo Germany -
' many and Austria alone pay over J20-
i 000,000 a year In bounties for beet sugar ,
1 exported for the most part to the United
| States , the United States cannot hope to
build tip Its beet sugar Industry unless
It shall offset the foreign export bounty by
an equal or greater Import duty or a bounty
to Its own beet sugar producers.
"With the national bounty or duty re
stored to offset foreign export bounties and
cheaper labor It may confidently be predicted
that this country will ten jours hence produce
all the sugar Its population may consume ,
and Nebraska could with proper encourage-
input safely guarantee to furnish at least
ore-half of the sugar product of America
by that time. "
