Special to Tit k Astokiax.
Washington, D. C.,April4. Opposi
tion to the proposed cut in the sugar
schedule comes in from various sources
to-dav. H. A. Brown of AEass, a noted
sugar tariff expert, addressed a strong
letter to AlcKmley and the members
of the ways and means committee, and
to senator Allison, of the senate hnance
committee, and to congress at large,
in which he criticises the vagaries of
the ad valorem sugar tariff schedule,
prepared by the Republican majority
of the committee.
.Brown claims that the classifications
in the present sugar tariff are reason
ably correct, and that the raising of
the color hue From Id to 10 is playing
into the hands of foreign producers of
American refiners, as well as to the
sugar trust people. He also claims
that under the present ad valorem
schedule low grades of sugar will not
be sent to this market, but will be
worked inlo higher grades, and there
fore the poorer classes will be deprived
of cheap, pure, refined sugar,
and be compelled to buy expensive
refined sugar or put up -with yellow re
fined sugar, doctored with glucose.
He further claims that the ad
calorem bill will increase the false in
voicing and under-valuatiou frauds,
and that a European war, a short for
eign sugar crop, or some other untold
event, may at any time double or
treble the foreign cost of sugar and
double or treble the duty
on sugar. Ife says it costs
the most when protection
is greatest and cAr certa.
least when it is least protected,
but refiners and sugar trust people
can operate with free sugar as readily
sis with dutiable sugar, and regulate
their outturn, and buv to suit them
selves in either case.
Brown, in his letter, officially com
pares the corn crop or the west, which
averaged SS03 per acre in 1SS7, to the
sugar beet root crops, which averaged
$6,750 per acre the same year, and
shows by otlicial figures that the
consumption of imported and domes
tic sugar in this country for the fiscal
year ended .Time U0,18S1), was 57.1G per
cent, per capita, of which there was pro
duced in the United Stales 11.1G per
cent ad calorem.
The sugar schedule, he characterises
as a bill to increae under valuation
frauds to encourage sugar monopolists
at home and abroad, to destroy our
sugar industries, to oppressconsumers
and to perpetuate a direct iutcrnal
