berger's guaranty bill will not hurt us.'
This If the reason this banker gave for
supporting the governor-elect.
The information was brought to Lincoln
by a close personal and political friend of
Governor Sheldon and he gave out the
information to several parties. It was hla
idea that the bankers of the state op
posed Governor Sheldon and were for Shal-
lenberger notwithstanding they opposed a
guaranty law and Shallenberger favored.lt.
This man believed from his talk with the
hanker that the democratic candidate nnd
the representatives of the bankers thor
oughly understand each other and they
were natisfled witli what Shallenberger
would recommend to the legislature,
llartliran for Adjutant General.

ernor Sliallcnbcrger bad formally offered
the position of adjutant general to Colonel
J. (J. Hartlgan of Fnlrbury and the latter
had accepted. Some few days ago a re

WASHINGTON. Nov. 19.-The allegation
that the so-called "Sugar trust" controls
the prlco paid the grower and the price

war putting himself on record aa a cham
pion of free entry for Philippine sugar and
the general "stand-put" attitude of the beet
sugar growers who appeared before tho

Secretary of war, Luke K. Wright, and
General Clarence Kdwards, chief of the in
sular bureau, were present. It was shortly
after the afternoon session waa begun thai
Chairman Payne asked Secretary Wright
If he cared to make any remarks. Tho
former governor of the Islands, said:
'Wo are now having an investigation
made In the Philippines regarding the cost
of production In the islands and other mat
ters relating to the question. From what
I have Just heard, tho principal objection
by the beet sugar growers to the admission
freo of duly of Philippine sugar liea In the
danger that their markets will be Inundated
by tho Philippine article. It la not posslblu
that tho Philippine Islands could supply tho
actual Increase In demand for sugar, year
iy year. In the Vnlted States. In that case
there Is no reason why tho Islands should
affect the market until tho beet and cane
sugar produced within the tariff wall In
creases 1,800.000 tons. Before the beet sugar
Industry Is In the slightest danger, It must
Increase from 440.000 tons annually to 2,100.-
000 tons, and from annual reports It wool I
take fifty years to do this,
Special Bill for Philippines.
Chairman Payne Indicated that the possi
ble action of the committee with regard
to the sugar schedule would be to recom
mend that a certain amount of Philippine
stiKar be admitted free of duty each yesr
and that the present tariff bo Imposed on
any above that amount. He told Becrelary
Wright that the menace, if any, was from
the Cuban sugar, which enjoys a reduction
In the tariff of 20 per cent. He nlao Inti
mated that the . Philippine tariff was sc
Important a question that It might not be
considered as being strictly a part of tha
work of revising the Dingley tBflfT, mlt
would be taken up separately.
Secretary Wright said that the produo
tier of sugar In tho Philippines would no!
Increase to any extent. Representative
Foidney of Michigan, who has . a large
number of sugar beet farmers among hie
constituents, told the secretary that thi
same argument was put forth with regan
to the Cuban sugar several years ago snc
yet the production In Cuba had Increased
very largely, and the American beet suctar
Industry had not Increased very much.
"The beet sugar people say that (hi
American Sugar Refining company has no
Interest In their factories," said the secre
tary, referring to the so-called trust, "yet
three years ago they said a trustee, under
stood to represent the American Sugar
Refining company, owned 1 per cent of tint
stock of all tint beet sugar factories. That
may be the reuson v hy the bout sugnr

rather than the importation' of Cuban
fcugar. Thcie hns b( en no reduction In tlca

Much Information concerning the Cost of
producing sugar, the profits derived, capi
tal Inverted, methodB of growing and re
fining, were offered at toduy's licarint,.
Colonel D. D. Colcock, on Iw half of tho
Louisiana cane sugar growers, said tha'
the methods by which the "trust" namea
the price which It would pay the grower
were unfair und "damnable."
Henry T. Oxnard, F. R. Hal ha way, C N.
Smith. F. T. Scholes. G. V. McCormlck
and W. II. Riird. repu-sentlng the beet
sugar manufacturers of the west, asked
that the present tariff be maintained, or.
If changed, that It be Increased, claiming
that the margin of profit on beet sugar
was too small to permit of any compe
tition with the foreign reflnors.

Atkins, who will appear tomorrow, repre

In Cuba which would r sult In tho "an

If the request for reduction Is not granted."
The hearing will bo continued tomorriw,
when the "Independent" refiners are ex

tariff for raw suirar.
