THIS THE BANNER MONTH
More Hauled Hero ln the Short Month
of February Than at Any Tlme
During the Seasbn ? Mr.
It Is a remarkable fact that during tho
Bbort month of February Juat olosod thero
has boen moro tobacco sold on tho RIoh?
mond breaks than ln any month slnco
tbe season opened?not even excopting
Novembcr, when the roceipts wero so
Whon tho breaks were added up yes?
terday many woro utterly surprlsed.
Sales have gono on sbeadlly and nobody
took -particular notlce of the fact that
the tobacco waa' pourlng ln. For ono
thlng, it waa moro eve'nly diatrlbuted
through the month and hence at no ono
tlmo did it bank up and giut tho market
and thus attract attentlon. And now
at the clpne of tho twenty-elght days it
is found that by nearly a quarter of a
mllllon pounda the salos exceed thoso of
Novernber or any other month slnco tho
season began. The faot la startllng, but
During tho month a total of 2,123.651
pounds was handled. In Novernber, tho
next largest month, the sales footed up
1,883,100 pounds. The difference amounts
to 2-10.091 pounds. The condltion of the
market is falrly good. Accordlng to
tho roport of the supervlsor, lssued yes?
terday, bright sun-cured lugs and wrap?
pers were vory strong throughout tho
week, while low grades kept up at usual
prices.' Several crops averaged from $8
to $11.80 around and somo sold as hlgh
as $18.50. Dark stemmlng and bright to?
bacco are selllng at about tho same flg
The total amount of tobacco sold dur?
ing tho week was 127.895 pounds, The to?
tal of looso tobacco handled during tho
season, up to date, amounts lo 7,229,038
pounds?an increaso of 2,187,751 pounds
over last year.
MR. VAUGHAN'S REPORT.
. Messrs. L. B. Vaughan & Co., proprie
tora of Crenshaw Warehouse, make a
most interesting comment upon the con?
dltion of tho market. They say:
"Our market cjosed with the month ac
tlv-e and strong, on all grades, under
strong demand. In spite of the crowded
or glutted months of Novernber and De
cember, and February belng the shortest
c.-ilendar month, yet she takos the lau
rels of being the largost aale month of
this season, havlng sold for the month
2.123,554 pounds, or say 240,0*4 pounds
more thnn the-rjext largest sale month.
Total salo for'thls season, 7.229,038 pounds,
as ngalnst 5.071.2S4 pounds same date lost
yoar, or an increaso of 2,157,704 pounds.
Our former predlctlons of selllng more
thjs than past season for 25 years
we thlnk now beyond questlon. It is pos
sible our Incrcased sales may bo attrlb
uted In part to lnrger crop, stlll much ls
duo to popular auctlon sales, when buy
ers and sellers come In closo fellowshlp,
divlding for mutual interest estlmato of
values. Indeed, wo know of no aafo
mcans of gcttlng at values except what
tho same artlclo may be worth to somo
ono else. We see ao reason why our cap?
ltal clty may not out-rlval Danville and
sell forty to flfty mllllon pounds. Wo
thlnk lt |s safe also to say that auctlon
sales for leaf tobacco aro tho "slne qul
non" to the success of leaf tobacco raar
kets. No market belng on record to the
contrary, Richmond stlll holds Its well
deserved reputation for tho best tobacco
market in Vlrglnla."_ ?
