Writes Another Letter to the Tobacco
To the Tobacco growers of Crittenden
The rocders of tho Press will remember
the articlo written by me not
long since Pointing out to tho tobacco
growers of Crittondon County
tho great opportunity to have their
present crop of tobacco handled and
sold by the Stemming District Tobacco
Association. I desire to say
that our manager Mr. Elliott, of the
city of Henderson has closed tho contract
with our friend Dr.R.L. Moore,
of Marion, for the uso of his factory
for the purpose of storing and pre-preparing
all of the tobacco for market
which is pooled and will bo pooled
in our county. '
It is plain to uo that the executive
committee and all officers of the
aforesaid Association have certainly
given Crittenden County tobacco
growers a great opportunity. Now
then we kindly xsk you to pool your
crops at an early date and show your
brother farmers that your stand with
them aud against the Tobacco Trust.
There is but two sides to this question
and that is aro you for tho farmers
or are you for the Trust? I am
informed by our manager that most of
our last year crop which was pooled
has been disposed of at good pricos,
far better than those who did not
pool. 1 said in my last article that
I would not say that it was best to
pool or not, now I am prepared to
say that I know it is best to pool
and when you sign tho contract stand
to tt. Doubtless you havo already
had Trust agents to como to sec you
and tell you that tobacco is high.
Wo admit that it is high and will
be higher, but the next question is,
who mado it higher. It certainly
was not the tobacco tiusts that
brought tho price up. For it was
was thoroughly demonstrated in the
halls of Congress; that the American
Tobacco Trust brought tho price of
tobacce down. That being truo it
certain! is a mistaken idea that tho
same combine would make tho price
high. Therefore it is a plain proposition
that tho Tobacco Associations
have made ueh progress that they
arc controlling the marketing of their
tobacco. Again we aie told that the
shortage of the crop that maket. the
price high to Much inquiries we
would sny please examine the statis.
tical part and you'll find thaMhis is
not the case.
Thercfoie wo are bound to admit
this tobbacco as&ooiatiou bai brought j
pleasure and happiness to miny a ,
poor family. Again we are told by
some farmers that we ought not to be
so hard against the trust buyers.
Why did you not make this sarao
complaint when the Americon
Company put cur merchants
qut of business in 1903.
than art a jewel.
In conclusion I will say that we
have fully 85 per cent, of tho to-
in the stemming district pooled
now and wo are informed that other
districts are doing equally as well.
Wc have also noticed that whero
neighborhoods have all pooled peace-and
Wc havo now the respect of tho
markets of tho world. More next
