Writes Another Letter to the Tobacco
To theTobacco growers of Crittenden
The readers of tho Press will remember
the articlo written by mo not
long sinco. Pointing out to the to.
bacco 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 Hondcrson has closed the con.
tract with our friend Dr.R.L. Moore,
of Marion, for the use of his factory
for the purpose of storing and pro-preparing
all of the tobacco for market
which is pooled and will bo pooled
in our county.
It is plain to Die 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 sk you to pool your
erops 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 arc you for tho Trust? I am
informed by our manager that most of
jur last year crop which was pooled
Las been disposed of at good prices,
far better than those who did not
pool. 1 said in uiy last articlo 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 have already
had Trust agents to come to sec you
and tell you that tobacco is high.
We admit that it is high and will
be higher, but the next question is,
who made it higher. It certajuly
was not the tobacco tiusts that
brought the price up. For it was
was thoroughly demonstrated in the
halls of Congress; that tlu American
Tobacco Trust brought the price of
tobacec down. That being truo it
certainly is a mistaken idea that tho
same combine would make tho price
high. Therefore it is a plain proposition
that the Tobacco Associations
have made such progress that they
are controlling the marketing of their
tobacco. Again wo aio told that tho
shortage of the crop that makes tho
price high to such inquiries we
would sny please examine tho statistical
part and you'll find tl.aMhis is
not the case.
Therefore wo are bound to admit
tobbacco association has brought
pleasure and happiness to many a

some farmers that we ought not to be
so hard against the trust buyers.

In conclusion I will say that we
