THE SUGAR TRUST.
Clans BprerkeU .the Ban Francisco Hngar
Klnftlefore the Congressional Commit-
tee. WAsntsaTOjt March 25. Tho Houso
Committee on Manufactures continued Its
Investigations Into the sugar trust yester-
day morning and Mr. Claus Sprockets ot
Ban Francisco was examined. Thero wero
two refineries In operation on tho Paclflo
coast witness said tbe American refinery
With a capacity of 600000 or 000000 pounds
dally and witness' refinery with a dally
capacity of 1200000 pounds. Of tbo raw
sugar used this year In tho witness' refin-
ery about 40001 tons or one-third of tho
annual crop camo from Hawaii 4003 or
50000 tons from the Philippine Islands nnd
about 10000 tons from Central America.
Tbe prlco ot raw sugar from Hawaii was
formerly flxed by tbe prlco la Manilla but
for tho last threo years It had been regu-
lated by the New York market.
Tbe trust combination has undoubtedly
tendod to lower tho prlco ot raw sugar and
to ralso the prlco of refined sugar. Sugar
was cheaper in San Francisco than In
Nerr York but of course when sugar
went up iu New York It went up lu baa

Q. Then tbe trust Is good for yout
A. Well I don't know so much about
Itat. Tholrustmaysayi "Sprcckels won't
join tbo trust but wo will crush him out.
We will put tbe price of sug-ir In San Fran-
cisco down to flro cents and make our
profit here." I have ccma east to start a
factory so as to get my share here.
Q. This Investigation Is to ascertain
whether tbo tendency of the combinations
la injurious to tbo interests of tho consum-
ers. Now as a matter of fact has not their
effect been to produco competition and
lessen tba price of sugar instead of pro-
ducing au opposite effect!
A. I don't sgreo with you tbero. I don't
bellevo so. They nre not going to form a
trust to work for tho people. Tbey nre go-
ing to work for tbelr pockets.
Q. Tbo trusts say that your building ot
an Eastern refinery Is a mere pretext.
A. I know there has bcon somo talk
about it being a bluff. You will see what
I will do. I do not bluff but when tbey
bluff I make them show their bands.
Speaking of tha prabablo growt' of tba
boct sugar Industry In Ibis country tho
witness said that It tho United Stales
could be sure of n certain amount of pro-
tection thoro was no question but what In
eight or ten years tho boot production
would supply this country with sugar.
John E. Soarles bad requested witness to
go into thn trust. He was sick when Mr.
Beorle called en him and did not remem-
ber what Inducements or advantages that
gentleman offered him. Tho conversation
lasted but a few minutes and occurred
four or flvo days ago. Ho remembered ask
ing bow to get out ot the trust utter once
being In It and was told that once tn you
would never gel out. Free sugar bo said
would break up tho trust but It would also
destroy tba sugar industry In this country.
He stated: "I am not tbo man you perhaps
haro heard that I was. Claus Spreckels is
not tha man to swallow brick housos and
cobble stones and digest them. If you take
tba duly off you lake a mliuon and a hall
from me and my associates. But If it Is
for tha benefit of tho American people why
should I alone bo favored nnd not the other
icoplel I can not taka any thing along
with me. I hare worked for Claus Sprcck
Is all my Ufa and now I am going to work

THE BURLINGTON'S TROUBLES.

CniCAtiu March 21. At exactly twalvo
O'clock last night n striko wns Inaugurated
imong tha switchmen employed by lbs
Chicago Burlington ft Qulncy railway.
Whispers of such n movo hod been heard
ever slnco t!io beginning ot tbe strike of
the Burlington onglnoers and firemen but
not until the past fow days did tba rumors
assume tangible shape. Verification of the)
reports was lacking and yesterday the Im-
portance o.t first attached to the matter hod
dwindled almost to nothing. The Inactiv-
ity at tho headquarters of tho engineers
and firemen all day nnd evening wns so no-
ticeable as to causa tha remark that it was
studied but no outsider it Is safa to say
suspected tha surprise that was In store.
Owing to tbo unexpectedness of tha
event tho ox act details of tho situation
were difficult to obtain. Tho general Ira.
prcssion Is that tho striko was genora) ever
tbe entire Burlington system nnd would
include tho brakemen. A basis for this
supposition lay In tbo fact that emissaries
from Chicago and clsowVero are known lo
havo been nt work among tbe switchmen
and brakemon along tbo entire line of road
for somo tlmo past nnd considerable actlvo
sympathy bad been shown by theso two
classes of employes with tho engineers
and firemen and In addition n plea of sell-
protection bad frequently been entered.
Tbo plea was that tho switchmen and
brakemen wero In constant daugor ot Ufa
and limb from tha alleged incompetency ot
tbo engineers and firemen who bad taken
