The mention of this fact in The Press prompted several to ask "Why don't ft': somebody try and do something for Thompsonville?" The question was a C- ; reasonable one, and prompted O. S. Freeman managing editor of The Press, x ' :; to take initial steps, in the matter, and unde,r date of September IS he wrote Congressman Lonergan as follows: ^ "Thompsonville, Conn., Sept. 18, 1919. " Hon. Augustine Lonergan, Washington, D. C. My dear Mr. Lonergan:—1 have noted your SUCCESS in helping to relieve ' : the sugar situation in Bristol, and am writing to ask if it is possible to do anything for Thompsonville (Enfield)? ' ' iLast week there was a" little. sugar at one of the principal stores, but ? Mrs. Freeman was able to get only a paltry 1 pound of it. This week we t> have been able to get only 2 pounds of black sugar. There surely must be something radically wrong along this line in •.this great country pf ours. Faithfully yours, O. S. Freeman." a Congressman Lonergan replied promptly in the following telegram: < "Washington, D. C., 5.45 p. m: Sept. 20119. "O. S. Freeman, Thomipsonville, Conn.:—Letter received. Sugar Equalization Board, New York, wirtirt me if you will forward names of refiners with whom Thompsonville merchants have placed orders it will-endeavor to expedite sugar shipments; glad to ship. >Sgd. Augustinei Lonergan." The above telegram was followed by this letter: "Washington, D. C., Septe,tniber 20, 1919. .•"Mr. O. S. Freeman, Editor The Press, Thompsonville, Conn. iMy dear Mr. Freeman:—Your letter received. As you doubtless know, the Sugar Equalization Board was created to allocate the supply of sugar that could be spared for the public from the, War Department. I am advised all such sugar has been distributed. However, the Board has been able, as in the Bristol case, to assist If it has the, name of refiners with wliofti orders have been placed. Kindly send me such names, and I shall immediately get in touch with the Board again, and assist in all ways possible. "Very truly yours, Augustine Lonergan." ^ On receipt of the; foregoing Mr. Freeman called on several of the local grocers, among them Tax Collector Hamilton. All approved heartily of any effort to relieve the sugar shortage here. Mr. Hamilton called up a •• •• wholesale house in Springfield, who agreed to be responsible for a carload • . shipped to Thompsonville; and Mr. Freeman immediately wired the New York Sugar Equalization Board as follows: " "Thompsonville.

"Very truly yours, Augustine Lonergan." The evening of September 22, the Equalization Board wired Mr. Freeman and asked for the names of the refineries holding orders from the Springfield wholesale house which was acknowledged by him tlitt morning of the 23rd as follows: J ' "Thompsonville, Conn., Sept. 23, 1919. •"Sufear Equalization Board, New York.

I trust you ow have the information you desire. A message from Congressman Lon- ;<ergan this morning asks to keep him advised. O. S. Freeman." Mr. Freeman also wrote Sturtevant Merrick & Co as follows: "Thompsonville, Conn., September 23, 1919.

This morning Mr. Clark Hamilton called you • up in reference thereto and you replied that you had received a telegram from the board last, night and had replied to the same. For the present we presume the matter will rest there. "I am sure Thompsonville will be grateful if you can secure a carload •or more for her people. Very truly yours, O. S. Freeman." •Under date of September 23 Congressman Lonergan wrote Mr. Freeman as follows: "Dear Mr. Freeman:—The inclosed from the Equalization Board, 111 Wall Street, New York City, is self-explanatory: "Today 1 received a letter form the Siturtevant Merrick Co. stating that they have placed no actual orders with refiners for the Thompsonville shortage and suggesting that any shipment to 'Thompsonville must, be extra. I have sent this letter to the Sugar Board and am awaiting their reply in the premises. With best wishes, I am, Very truly yours, "Augustine Lonergan.'' The "inclosed telegram" read: "New York, Sept. 22-23. Augustine Lonergan, Washington, D. C. ; Telegram received. We have wired O. S.

The sugar 'situation in Thompsonville continues acute, aljthoilgh, strangely, one or i two dealers have been able to get some sugar FOR THEIR CUSTOMERS. ~ "Very truly yours, O. S. Freeman." t j10 plan is, if the sugar can be obtained, to distribute it to the local '• dealers, who will pay for their allotment at the car. The logical and , fair method of distribution, whfch has been followed in other places, is for i" the secretary of the Board of Trade, or Mayor, to give out Sugar Cards e,n- • - ip titling the holder to a certain riuimber of pounds; when the number of pounds calle,d for has been punched in the card, that ends the transaction, v : £ "and unequal distribution, or favoritism, is not permissible.
