WASHINGTON. Nov. 16 Th allega

the consumer, the Secretary of War put
ting himself on record as a champion of
frvo entrv for Philippine sugar, and the
svneral "Btand-pat" attitude of the beet
sunar growers, who appeared before the
ways and means committee of the House,
wre fhe features of today's hearing on
the revision of the tariff as it would af
fect susar. Secretary of "War "Wright and
General t'larence Kdwards. chief of the
Intular Bureau, were present.
Chairman Payne aked Mr. Wright If
he cared to make any remarks. The ex
tlovernor of the islands said:
No Ianger to Beet Sugar.
We are now having an Investigation made
in ihe Phlttppinrs recarxiinv the cft of
production In the .stands and other matters
rfhttlns to the Question.
From what 1 have Just heard, the prin
cipal ,bJrtion by the beet-sugar growers
10 the atlmtMi m tree of duty of "Philippine
sugar lira tn the danger that markets will
be inumt tl by the t'hittpplne article.
It is not posiM that the Philippine Isl
and could supply the actual Increase tn
lnnd for surht year by year In the I'nlted
St ie. In that cae thtr" is no reason
why the island should affect the market
until the beet cane sugar pr-niuecd
nirhin the tariff wall Increases l.SOO.OoO
tons Before the beet-suirar industrj' is n
the slightest danger, it must ir.creae from
4H.wh tons annuaily to 1'. 1... oo tons, and
f.-om annual reports it would take M years
lo do thi.
Probable Action of Committee.
Mr. Payne Indicated that the possible
n rlon of the committee with regard to
Die sugar schetlule would be to recom
mend that a certain amount of sugar be
admitted free of duty each year and that
the present tariff be imposed on any
above that amount. He toid Mr. Wright
that the menace. If any. was from the
t'uban sugar, which enjoyed a reduction
in the tariff of per cent. He admitted
that the Philippine tariff was so impor
tant a question that it might not be con--nd
as being strictly a part of the
work of revising the Dlngley tariff, but
would be taken up separately.
Mr. Wright said that the production of
sugar in the Philippine Islands would not
increase to any extent.
Representative Fordney. of Michigan,
who has a large number of sugar-beet
farmers among his constituents, told the
Secretary that the same argument was
put forth .with regard to Cuban sugar
eeveral months ago, and yet the produc
tion In Cuba had Increased very largely
and the American beet-stutar industry
had not increased very much.
Mr. Wright replied:
The beet-sugar people say that the Amer
ican Sugar Refining Company has no Inter
est in their factories, yet three years ago
they said a trustee, understood to repre
sent the American Sugar Refining Company,
owned 51 per cent of the stock of ail the
beet-sugar 1 actori s. That may be the rea
son why the beet-sugar industry In this
country has not grow n. rather than the
Importation of Cuban sugar. There has been
Tkt reduction In the prices of sugar in a
number of years.
The hearing will be continued tomor
row, when the Independent refineries are
expected to argue for a reduction in the
tariff on raw su?ar.
RACE THROUGH 1
Hold Back Whalers Next Year.
SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 16. Repre
sentatives of four firms which control
the whaling fleet of this port have decid
ed that none of their vessels will set sail
for the Arctic next season .unle?s the
market price of whalebone Is materially
advanced, which at present seems unlike
ly. While the season just ended has been
characterized by a catch unusually small,
the market is said to be glutted with
bone through the efforts of the Dundee
whaling interests, and at the prevailing
price of W and $5 per pound, with little
demand, the owners have concluded that
tt will be useless to tit out the fleet at
an expense of $15,000 for each steam
whaler. Of the seven whalers that re
turned during the past fortnight only
one exceded a catch of three whales.
The exception was the Thrasher, which
remained two years in the North.

LOS ANGBUBS. Cal Nov. 16. The sec

unental aerial race, the United States, got
away at isiw o clock today. At a height
of about a mile it encountered a strong
current of air which carried it southwest
toward the ocean and almost In the same
uirectlon as that taken by the American
yesterday. It continued to fall toward
tne sea, 20 miles distant.

LANDS NEAR STARTING PLACE
Balloon American Narrowly Escapee
Descending in Ocean.
LOS ANGELKS, Call. Nov. 16. The
big racing balloon American, which
started from Los Angeles at 3:18 yes
terday afternoon. In an attempt to
make a long eastward flight, landed at
3:30 this morning, one mile from the
ocean, at Hermosa Beach, after being
In the air It hours and having been
driven to sea four different times. The
occupants of the car. Captain A. E.
Mueller and J. K. Hutchinson, landed
safely. The balloon came to the ground
about 15 miles from the point of start
ing, having traveled in circles and zig
zagged back and forth for many hours.
The bag was carried five miles to
sea on one occasion, and two miles on
another. Two other times it skirted
the beach for miles. Captain Mueller
was forced to throw over ballast fre
quently during the time he was carried
to sea, and had but a sack and a half
of sand left when they came 'back to
land after 3 o'clock this morning.
hile the night of the "American"
was a failure from the standpoint of a
race, it formed a thrilling chapter in the
records of local ballooning. For hours
the big balloon swept over the surface
of the sea, along the coat-t adjacent to
Los Angeles, at times so near the water
that the guide rope which trailed from
the basket dragged through the waves.
A heavy fog prevailed during almost the
entire flight, and the pilot had no means
of knowing whether he was over land or
water or In what direction he was mov
ing. Several times- the balloonists ap
proached the earth, only to lind the sea
awaiting them, and were forced vig
orously to throw over ballast to avoid
being dropped Into the ocean. Once dur
ing the night they returned to the edge
of the city of Los Angeles and were able
to hold conversation with people on the
ground. They were then carried away
again and swept once more to the beach
and out to sea. Mueller and Hutchinson
returned to the 'city today, none tha
worse for their experience.
Pretty Girl Defeats Inspectors.
CHICAGO, Nov. 16. So pretty and con

exception in her case. Miss Frances Agnes
Sinclair arrived in Chicago last night and
was met at the station by her Intended
husband, Oscar Opperman. The marriage
took plaoe . today because Miss Sin

thorities that it would not be deferred.
Otherwise they would not have permitted
her to enter this country. Tjnder the law,
their duty was' to order her to go straight
back to Kurope, as Opperman was not at
the ship to meet her. . He Is a young man

that his tiancee might be detained at
