To Grab Profits
On Sugar Rise
Sgar nfiaers are aot going to
allow either the wholesaler, tbe re
tail sr nor the edasamer-to speealaie
and make big profits on sagar, al
tkoagh they did allow any and all
of these Interests to take aa awfal
licking taie aeaeosw Reports from
reflaiag center are to the effect
that even the bigger Jobbers are
allowed to parrbate .only one ear
load of sagar at a time. This It
scarcely eaoagh for i- the rastanera
of one salesman of the big hensea.
In the minds of .wholesalers, this
means that the refineries are Agar
lng apon aa advance price and are
going to keep the esgar themselves
and grab the profits. ,

Indian Wheat to ;
Show Decrease;' j
Acreage Is Out
Washington. March 23. (L N. 8.) The
first whest forecast of ; the Indian government
for the 1920-21 Crop of India, based upon re
ports of the area Sown up to January 1, esti
mate tbe total planting to wheat at that time
as 22.673.000 acres, compared with tbe esti
mate of 27,423.000 acres st the corresponding
time of last year, or a decrease of 16 per Cent,
the department of commerce waa advised.
The final estimate of the wheat yield ia ex
pected to be somewhat lees than that. The pre
Wsr wheat requirements of India Itself have been
estimated t about 9,000,009 tons, which indi
cate that the exportable surplus from th cur
rent crop is likely to be comparatively negligible.

Man Accused of
By Dummy Envelope
Charged with attempting to extort
money from Mrs. Rthel Davis, 3501a Mor
rlson street, by pretending to be a slck,,
relative, Harry Jackson, 22, colored, waa
arrested Thursday night for Investiga
tion by Lieutenant Fred West
Jackson's method of operation. West
says, is to pick a name at random from
the telephone directory and cail up for a
social conversation. He Is usually mis
taken for someone else, and during the
conversation he finds out a few personal
things about his victim. He takes sev
eral days, to get thoroughly acquainted
over the telephone, Weat says, and then
he requests his victim, a supposed rela
tive, to send him money by a messen
ger, because he is ill.
From Mrs. Davis he tried to get 1150.
Mrs. Davis grew suspicious and re
ported the affair to West. A dummy en
velope was delivered to the messenger,
who was shadowed by detectives. When
the envelope waa delivered to Jackson,
West was there and arrested the alleged
extortionlat. Jackson Is said to have
confessed to obtaining money from a
half dosen victims in this way.
Tbe police believe Jackson ta the man .
who represented himself to be Cannon
ball' Baker, a well-known cross coun
try automobile racer. Several months
ago a relative of Baker's waa swindled
out of money In this same way.
