very interoting report on the sugir trade
has jut !een issued from the State D-j-lartiiiet't.
It consists ol extiticts liom

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

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

the market; but there is reason to believe
that if the cost of taw sugar is d'.ministed,

Philadelphia, It is said that with

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

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
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.
The Row Boat Fox Crosses tbe Atlan

Dr. Chancellor, tbe American cousul at

elaborate report upon the successful voy
age of the rowboat Fox across the Atlan

seamen, Harbo and Samuelson, as they
arrived and several days later the charac

The consul says they accomplished the

8.000 miles, in fifty five days, "thus es
tablishing a record in daring seamanship
aud human endurance hitherto unknown

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
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
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 .
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.
