CHICAGO. Nov. lt).-Beet sugar inanu
. facturers, who have been meeting In
, Chicago for the last few days, closed
I their session today after formulating
plans to combat the propaganda la the
I Interest of "free sugar," alleged to be.
carried on by the cane sugar refiners
! and the New York importing Interests.
The beet sugar men declared that they
produce annually 600.000 tons of sugar and
draw raw - .terlal from sixteen states,'
extending from Ohio to California, and
j lay the Amertoan farmer 130,000,000 an
nually therefor. They contend that by
putting raw sugar on the free list the
; domestic Industry would! be destroyed and
j all competition thereby eliminated and
' that thereafter the Importers and re
I liners would have a complete monopoly.
After the meeting the chairman, C. C.
1 Hamlin of Colorado, issued a statement,
l la which he characterised the publicity
' attributed to the refiner us "a cam
j puign of misrepresentation Inaugurated
for the purpose of prejudicing the minds
of the American people."
"The animus of these attacks Is appar
ent," Mr. Hamlin says. "Beet sugar is
the only competitor the refiners have,
as from it they can extract no toll and
every pound of beet sugar produced in
i the United States means one lens for
them to refine. The Industry destroyed,
1 Uielc only competition would be elim
inated and a few men in New York
1 would fix the price to be paid to the
i producers of raw sugar on the one hand
' and that to be charged the consumer of
refined, on the other.
Beet Industry Grows.
"Tho production of beet sugar in this
country has increased from 45,248 tons In
1S97 to 600,000 this year, and our capacity
for further expansion will be understood
' when it la known that the Department
of Agriculture eays that we have 247,090,-
! OCO acres of land suitable for beet culture.
j If the industry is allowed to expand , we
would within a reasonable time be pre-
duclng our entire requirements.
