In ninny sections ot tlie press iie United States the price to which lugar has advanced forms the theme 5? comment, and tlie nature ot these t very edifying. It is re-ported llut the Sugar Equal- ization IlKlrd could have bought the 2uban crop at six imd a half cents. The Spokesman Hevlew draws atlcti- :ira to the fact that the Cuban Jlin- ister at Washington stated on Monday tist that it should not be forgotten .hat the Cuban government aud the Tuban planters are on "record as hav- twice voluntarily offered to sell :be present crop "to tb'e United States Sugar Equalization Board at cents per pound." The U.S. Government's failure to leize that opportunity, the Spokane' paper points out, is recorded in an Associated' Press dispatch from iVashington. date of January 3 last. 'President it reported, "has decided uot to exercise the powers conferred in the McNary sugar con- trol bill authorizing the purchase and iistrihution of the sugar crop, ae- :ordlng to a statement issued tonight at the White House." Tbe Wbite House statement en- tered into a long argument thai there would be an abundant supply ol sugar without the Cuban crop. But the matter has a worse aspect it is publicly charged in Congress ihat the President's advisers were in- flueHCod by a purpose to keep out the Cuban' crop to let the IxmtsEdna sugar producers get high prices. for :heir product. Representative Tink- bam of Massachusetts declared in a speech February 14 that a govern Bent agreement with the Louisiana producers last fall for 17 and IS cent sugar sent prices skyrocketing, "be- cause sugar was llicn selling at nr 12 cents a pound at retail, am prices on the Cuban crop were raisei from 6-12 cents to 12-li by this ac lion." The reflex of the fiction of tlie Gov srnment o[ the United States, with the resultant rise in the price of Cuban sngaf, is felt indirectly in Can- Ida in (he present price ot the article. This is aggravated by conditions pre- vailing in the sugar Industry in Cuba, allusion to which has been already made. The effects of a policy of re- stricting imports have a very wido range. 3.
