The present drop in the price of sugar is not hurting the rascals who were re- ! sponsible for the outrageous prices. The ' refiners and brokers who represent there ! sold to the wholesalers and jobbers in advance at prices ranging from 25 to 1 30 cents per pound in car load lots. These : sales were made in the spring for de-livery prior to September 1st. A month j ago the refiners began to cut the rrlce of sugar and to dump the enormous stocks they, had on hand. This caused an immense loss to the jobbers who had been loaded up with high priced sugar and whose profits tha government had limited to one cent a pound. One Jobber in an adjoining city is reported to have fourteen cars bought and stands to lose ?5,000 per car or better. Another in Indianapolis has twenty cars and it is the same way all over the country. In the meantime the refiners and brokers who put up the sugar price ar enot losing a dollar. The people are the gainers by the deal tit the ones who lose are the jobbers whose profit has been limited to a one cent limit by the government. It looks like there ought to be some way to handle a lot of highwaymen of this kind, even if the government has to resume control of the sugar corporation. THE CLEVELAND CAMP The tide of the meeting is rising. ( If it continues to keep up at this rate, it will be hard for the preachers that are coming to take charge of the Camp Meeting proper, next Friday evening, to hook on. Yesterday was a good day. The morning service was opened by John T. Hatfield, who gave a short talk on the text, "How Shall We Escape if We Neglect So Great Salvation?" He dwelt largely upon the word neglect. He showed that neglect was the cause of so much spiritual dearth among the professing christians of today. He reasoned that a person could not neglect anything unless they once possessed it. He said that a farmer could not neglect a farm unless he had one, a housewife could not neglect a house uness she had one, and a person could not neglect salvation unless they had it. The sermon was followed by a testimony meeting and then closed. The afternoon service was in charge of Rev. William Abrams, pastor of the Friends church at Western Grove. His subject was, "The Christ in the Holy of Holies symbolizing the iife that was had with Christ in God." He made a fine hing out of it, and was ly blessed the people. He was fol-followed by an exhortation from Mr. Hatfield, who was at home and had a fine time, for this is one of his favorite themes. At night, Rev. Carl Tucker was the precher of the hour. His theme was the practical life of the "New Birth." Taking his text from Rom. 8-1., he had great liberty in preaching, for God was with him, there was much conviction, and quite a number were at the altar and was a scene of groans and tears. A few prayed throught in the good old fashioned way. The revival is on! There is a great outlook for great victory. Mrs. Maggie Hamilton, of Shelby-ville, came yesterday for an indefinite stay at Sam Mannon's to care for her sister, Mrs. Sam Mannon, who has been very sick, but is improving. At present time Greenfield has a well equipped Western Union Telegraph office, which is centrally located. It has been reported that the office will be taken out of Western Union service and placed in the offices of the Pennsylvania lines. This change will make the service necessarily slower and in a locality which will be very inconvenient to the public. This change was suggested once before, but the argument that the poes and wires were of no use to the city, but the office was needed down town,, prevented the change from being made. gugai&c.
