Sugar
Produce it in America
with
American Labor and Capital
The War is Over
The American
Sugar Shortage
will continue
unless the Allies use German Sugar
or a large American cane-sugar industry is established.
The German-Austrian surplus sugar-crop was 2,415,395 tons.
The Allies' Sugar Shortage is 2,500,000 tons.
Java sugar available for export to Atlantic ports is only 25%
of sugar-shortage, and is 8,000 miles away.
Java one-crop cane cannot compete
with rattoon-crops of the United States and West Indies.
The Sugar Trust
Is opposed to a great American cane-sugar industry. Therefore,
the richest cane-lands in the world
are idle.
A cane-field in Florida 45.52 miles square will produce
all the sugar consumed in America,
at a cost of 2c A LB.
A great American cane-sugar and sirup [sic] industry must be
established. It will
conserve sugar and save shipping.

A sinking-fund of one cent a pound on sugar, for 5 years, will
pay the entire cost of cane-lands and factories, and
give America and its allies
low-priced sugar
