THE BEET SUGAR INDUSTRY.
The rally wonderful development of
the beet sugar Industry during the last
6 years In most excellently shown by
om statistic that The treasury de
partment has issued of the world's pro
duction of sugar. The growth of sugar
consumption is also strikingly shown:
In 1840 the total sugar -frop of the
world was only 1.150,000 ton. In 1900
it vaa 8,800,000 tons. The world's pop
ulation did not double during these 60
years, yet Its consumption of sugar
increased fully right times. The rapid
increase In the production of beet sugar
furnishes an even more striking ex
hibit This discovery of' sugar in the beet
waa made by a German chemist, Mar
gr&ff, as early as in 1747. No practical
results followed his discovery, however,
aa the cost of obtaining sugar from the
beet !sy labratory methods was too
high as compared with that of cane su
gar. Little progress was accomplished
until about 50 years later when another
German chemist, Achard, succeeded
in extracting sugar from the beet root
on a comparatively large scale. In 1S12
a manufactory was in operation at Si
lesia, In which, under Achard's direc
tion, about 20 quintals of beets were
worked up daily, and about five uounds
of sugar extracted from very quintal.
The high price jf suar prevailing at
that time all over the European con
tinent by reason of th blockade and
the great Interest and favorable atti
tude taken by the different continental
governments toward the new experi
ment caused it to be a success for a
short time. With the downfall of Na-'
poleon and the opening of European
ports to the entry of colonial products
the price of sugar declined and most
of the beet sugar establishments were
Experiments continued to be made.
however, and at the end of the third
decade of the nineteenth century the
beet sugar -industry began to show
signs of permanent success. The tech
nical points were proved and the cost
reduced. The development of the in
dustry in the United States has arisen
largely from the successful experiments
In ISca the total beet sugar crop of
the world was only 182,000 tons. In
190.' It was 5,510,000 tons. In 1840 beets
supplied less than five percent of the
world's sugar consumption whereas in
1900 beets supplied 67.71 percent. "Thun
the sugar producing area of the world,"
says thU treasury bulletin, "has in less
than half a century been shifted fiorn
the tropics northward, and the farmer
of the temperate zone has shown his
abolity notably to compete with the
low priced labor of the tropics, but in
doing so has reduced by one-half the
cost of the article produced."
OUR NEW CHANCE IN CHINA.
The determination of the representa
tives of the European powers to force
China to pay its obligations to them in
gold instead of sliver, which Is the cur
rency of the empire, stands a chance to
precipitate another -crisis. Since the
time, when, about two years ago, China
agreed to pay the indemnities to cer
tain European powers, as well as to the
Vnlted States and Japan, growing out
of the Boxer outrages of 1S99-1900, sil
ver, has declined 20 percent in commer
clai vallie an It'is almost certain: to
drop further, owing to the change to
the gold standard which Is about to be
made in the Philippines and in other
parts of the orient. This, of course,
will add seriously1 to China's' burdens.
It. is apparently the intention of the
Washington government to try to have
the, Chinese case submitted to The
Hngue tribunal. All the governments
which signed the protocol two years
ago exjipt that of the United States
seem disposed to push this matter of
th payment of the Indemnity In gold.
The United States Is trying to get the
rest of the powers to grant concessions
to China, owing to the drop in silver,
which was not foreseen at the time the
adjustment was reached. Thus far
none of the other countries appear dis
posed to ahour any lenience, . Un
doubtedly Hi feeling that China Willi
not be able to pay the Indemnity, and
that thus an excuse will be furnished
(or seising tome' of Its territory, has
much to do with the attitude of the
The United States should use all it
Influence to get some concessions for
China, and to get the matter submitted
to some Impartial tribunal. It is clear
th it China will not be able to meet the
terms ofthe allies if the gld stipulation
should be mtorvea. l ne determination
of the Euroivan nations to extract
their pound of flesh will lead to grave
complications In China, which will once
more bring the question of dismember
ment In burning shape. If the United
States succeeds in having the matter
referred to arbitration, she will gain
another brilliant triumph for peace and
progress whicJ will add to her prest
ige throughout the world.
From the New York Sun we learn
that the Plnkerton detective agency in
that city has a record of bank rob-
beries committed In various parts of
the country from September 15, 1902, to
January 8 that Is within a time of loss
than four months. Evidently the bur
glar business is booming, and there is
great activity among the more enter
prising members of the profession. The
crimes have been committed in small
towns only, but the number is the
largest on record in so short a time.
The chief seat of the activity of the
burglars is the Mississippi valley, but
several robberies have occurred in New
York, in Pennsylvania and In New
England. The one farthest west occur
red in Utah, not a single one being re
ported for the entire Pacific coast. In
the south there were a few, scattered
from South Carolina t Texas, but the i
great majority were grouped around
Chicago for a storm center. It appears
that of recent years the banks of large j
cities have become virtually secure
from attacks of this kind. The bank'
robber of today has learned that the!
safety appliances and the careful !
watching that guard the banks of aj
city are more than he can overcome. I
Consequently he turns to the country'
towns and works for such booty as he !
can find there. Concerning that phase I
of the subject the Sun tells a curious j
story of an attempt at burglary In a !
prominent western bank, which was
carried out in such a manner that "the
detectives who investigated it were
more than suspcious that It'was under.
laxen in tne interest of a company
which makes an unusually hard kind of
steel for the manufacture of safes." If
there be any justification for such sus
picions he have a new danger to fear,
for If the manufacturers of safes begin
to make a show of attempts at burg
lary Just to get an advertisement for
their goods there Is no telling what we
may come to. Furthermore, it is up
to Chicago to explain why these things
are thickest where her influence is
