GERMANY'S SUGAR TAX. I. aw In That Country Ilnve Fostered Ihe Indoatry nl Enormona WchIiIi II UN Aecrtied loltlie Manu fncturcrs. Washington, D. C. Auui-t 14. A very interoting report on the sugir trade has jut !een issued from the State D-j-lartiiiet't. It consists ol extiticts liom statements sent by two .American consuls inG.im.ny. The fact that the United Slates u-ics more su.ar per cipila and in re sugar actuslly than any other coun try iu the world gives the report special significance. Erery person iu this couutry, counting meD, women and children uses seventy- seven pounds of sutfar, making the enor mous total of 2,ot0. 000 tons per anuum. The ier capita in Germany, which is the largest sugar-producing country in the world, is only twenty nine pounds a year. The reason for this is explained by the report that suar costs Germany 7 1-2 cents pei pound while in this country the price ranges froin 4 to 5 cents. The rea son for this is found in the Geman laws intended to protect and loster the sugar business. It is recent legislation of this kind which has called out this report. The new laws, it is said, will still further lower tl'.e price of sugar here. Julius Muth, the couusul at Madge burg, says: "If we consider the enor mous wealth that lias accrued to Germa ny and all other countries which have inttoduced and fostered this industry, it is to be desired that the United States should be Dut on a footing to be able to produce its own sugar, He intimates, hnvorar tllit I h l 'O VIVO 111 ' T) t Will liO , , ' L . " ., , ,. obl'.ged to meet in some way the bounties naid bv Eumnean governments, if the sugar industry in America is to be made to produce even all the sugar needed for home consumption. Mr. Frank H. Mason, consul general at Frankfort, gives a brief review of the legislation by which Germany's samar in dustry was developed. He shows that from a time shortly after tbe civil war here to the present, a tax has been laid by the German government upon all sugar u?ed, in order to pay a bounty on all sugar produced in Germany. Under the stimu !us of this export bounty the sugar makers have so improved the quality of the heets that they used and have so im proved their processes of "trying out'' or reducing the best juice that the amount of sugar produced from a given amount of beets has nearly doubled. While the quantity of beets that was formerly neces sary to produce a ton of sugar was twen ty toDs, the amount now used is only twelve tons. A movement was begun in Germany a number of years ago t revise the law and cut down the heavy profits the sugar makers were realizing, but the sugar people united and defeated tbe movement for a number of years. Suger beet grow ing continued t be the most profitable for. n of culture for German farmers, the area in cultivation and the number of factories increased, w hile loud complaints at laws which favored one at the expense of the other were heard. In 1891 the lounty was reduced, and it was agreed that It should cease altogether on July 31, 1897, provided that other countries of Europe that produce sugar hrgely should take off the bounties. This sort of international agreement was never reached, and the law just passed restore the export duty and raises the tax on sugar used in Germany to a'.out 2.2 per pound. This will stiil further re tail the consu nption of sugar in that country. The law is ihe result of overproduction produc'.iO'i.

The effect f this law t 'on the Unite. 1 Slates i- not ea-v to loivs.-c. but it is g, o eial'y believed that it will mike ihe ' price of raw sugar cou-id. r.ibly lower, and this will me3t a reduction in the price of refined sugar calculated at from a tourth of a cent per pound. Of course the reduction in the United States will depend upon the action of the American Sugar Refining Company, which controls the market; but there is reason to believe that if the cost of taw sugar is d'.ministed, as propos(d, the price of refined sugar will soon follow-. The eff-ct of the law is just about beginning to be felt. CHICAGO EXPRESS WRECKED Coaches and Pullmans Overturned. titx. Reported Killed, Twenty or Thirty Injured.

Estraila Palma, the minister plenipotentiary of the Cuban Republic to the United States, and Gon zales Quesada, tbe secretary of legation, with other prominent supporters of the revolutionary cause, will go to Cuba to consult with President Cisneros as to future conduct of the battle of freedom. Gens. Gomez and Iaceo are both said to have expressed the opinion that noth ing can be accomplished under the pres ent system of fighting. They do not want to go on struggling, as during the ten year's war, with no hope of gaining the freedom of the island, utiles tbey secure recognition as bclligore: ts from the United States. To do this, it is claimed by both the commanders, that they must inaugurate a campaign of the most rlestructive charac ter. Heretofore, when parts of their armies have invaded a town, they have simply driven the Spanish forces out and then have themselves retreated. The plan now is to make forced marches upon all the interior cities, and after af fecting their capture, destroy them. They cannot do this, however, without the sanction of the Cuban juDta in the United Statas aud it is for the purpose of settling the issue thus raised that Palma, Quesada and others have been summoned to the island. How these leadeis will get to Cuba is, of course, a mystery to all save them selves. It is stated on good authority that three large expeditions are to be sent out from different places in this country and that they will unite aud land at a designated point. The vessels will be armed and prepared to fight if they should bo overtaken by Spanish cruisers. At the same time that the three large expeditions go out there will be other ships sent to the coast as decoys. The leaders in the movement have no apprehension of their ability to effect an ending. It is expected that tbe conference be tween Cisneros, Palma, Quesada, and others will result in a decision to start both of the armies ot Gomez and Macco on ihe ngressive about the first of October, and that when a town is captured it will be destroyed. Mace it is said, would like to inaugu rated line of action something akin to Sherman's march to the sea, and it is be lli; ved he will have his way. A FOOL VOYAGE.

I creased Government Revenues ! peeled. in Washington, D recent arrangement: C The success of in maintaining the ; gold ic.M-ive of tlie TuaMirv, mid the knowledge that the banks of the country j j will advance more gold if it is needid. i is caudng a f'eeiing ol confidence at the Department. The gold leserve is getting down again close to $100,0 0,010 but thei losses have then comparatively small of J late, and it is believed that they will be still smaller, now that gold imports have set in. The action of tlie hanks and the for eign exchange houses in protecting tbe gold reserve is regarded by some of tbe officials as much more efficient than the mere placement of a popular loan. Tli is view i- based uoon th? fact that the losses ol gold to the Treasury haye reached a n;t amount ol $n5,o94,460, since the advertisement for bids for the last loan. The gold reserve at that time stood at $61, 331, G26, and the proceeds of the bond sale were $111,166,232, making a total of si 72,697,858. The contribution of $27,000,000 by the banks raised the gold holdings, and receipts of the Treas ury since the advertisement for the last bond bid to $199,000,000. The piesent reserve being about 103, 000,000, the losses during the last eight months have reached about $96,000,000. The Treasury has substantially no gold receipts of any u-e for strengthening the reserve during this entire period, except the proceeds of the bond sale and the con tributions of the banks. Gold is received for public dues on the Pacific coast, but has to be paid out again so that there is no substantial net gain to the Treasury. The loss of $96,000,000 in gold, therefore, indicates that only about $13,G00,0C0 of the big proceeds of the popular loan still remain in the Treasury in gold. Gold was tteadily drawn during the term allowed for payment for the bonds, so that die reserve never rose much above $123,000,000. The importation of gold at New York may prove only an isolated event, but the state of the foreign trade ot the country during the past year justifies the hope that gold will come to this ceuntry in considerable amounts uuless there is a strong disposition lo withdraw foreign capital. The excess of exports of American merchandise for the seven months ending with July was 90, 743, 609; he excesss of gold exports for the same period was $20,866,642, and the excess ot silver exports was $18,625,192. This balance in favor of the United States, amounting to $130,000 000 in seven months, is more tlinn enough to settle our usual interest payments abroad and leave a margin in our favor. The his tory of the past three years has been very similar, and it i3 believed that in the absences of political disasters the serious process of liquidation which the country has been going through will soon be at an end. The readiness of the tanks to furnish gold, if needed to maintain the Treasury reserve, is counted upon to pre vent r.ny m-w break of confidence anel to keep the foreign exchanges in a normal condition. Even the opponents of the legal tender 3ystem are hopeful that renewed activity in business will make a place for the mass of paper money now in circulation and remove the greenbacks as a disturbing factor from the market, Tbe problem of Government revenue depends to some extent upon the state of business and it is still hopeel that revenue will materially increase when business confidence returns. The receipts of the G ivernment during July werebitter than for many months, and those tor August have been better than the receipts during the spring, but will yet equtl tbe receipts for August 1S93. There will be a considerable deficit for August, but it will be due to special cans es rather than the excess of ordinary ex penditures. The increase in the receipts for July and August over the spring months has been mainly in internal revenue. The cus t nrs receipts have shown a tendency to fall oh, owing t. diminished importations The internal revenue receipts are not likely again to fall backward, while there is no prospect of change in the law, and the customs receipts are expected to feel the tcuch ol improving business as soon as the exisiting political uncertainty is at an end. It is still expected that Congress will be summoned in etra session, either to pro vide revenue or to consieler a general revision of the tariff. Tne necessity for revenue may be felt, without regard to the party whie Ii triumphs at the polls in November. The prospect of g( tier il tariff revision, even with an extra session, is less bright than it appeared in ihg spring, when the Re1' blie-aus believeel that they iaii every thi ., their own way. They are likely to find it d.rh ul: to pass a general revenue bill, even il they elect the Presi dent and a majority ol the House of Re presentatives, in view of the States in which the Legislatives aie lut-ly to slip fronl their hands into those of the Silver ,- t . ius.oh.m.. The severa source8 of rcvcnne which iiave been suggested, without raising the s n pr ject of the general tarirl revision, are sugar, tea, conee, wool anel beer, the proposition in regard to sugar would probably be tu change the present ad valorem duty to a specific one, based upon two ccDts per pound for reficed sugar, wl kh would afford an increase of about $30,000,000.
