House Committee Starts Its Investiga
tion of Sugar Refineries
Washington,—Second only to the
steel trust investigation in important
is the inquiry into the American Sugui
Refining company, and other sugar re
fineries which begins formally by a spe
cial committee of the House Thursday
According to Representative Hard
wick, who is chairman of the special
investigating committee, the real in
tent of the house probe will be to de
termlne whether or not charges are
true that the American Sugar Refining
company has secured absolute control
of the American sugar market, cruBli
lng competition wherever it appears.
The committee will investigate not
only the present day operation of the
trust, but it will delve into the past to
determine whether or not the American
Sugar Refining company has fully
atoned for the immense frauds at tho
port of New York.
The house committee also will make
some pertinent inquiries as to the pun-
ishment meted out to those who were
guilty of the sugar frauds. The charge
haB been made that the men highei
up" have gone unpunished, while
few subordinate officials of the sugar
trust have paid the penalty.
