With the highest prices of the sea
son prevailing and with a large and in
terested crowd Present, the loose leaf
tobacco market was opened in this
city Tuesday morning at the ware
house of the Bourbon Tobacco and
Warehouse Co., in Barns Addition.
Prices obtained were highly satisfac
tory to both the officials of the ware
house and the sellers and buyers were
well pleased with the offerings.
Fully two hundred thousand pounds,
some ot it the choicest product of the
county were offered in various quanti
ties and every hand was disposed of by
the tinip the sales closed in the after
noon. The prices ranced from $4 to
S4U per hundred, the laCter price be
ing obtained foi a smal quantity ot
the choicest cigarette leaf.
'ihe sales were opened formally at
ten o'clocK Tuesday morning, when
Hon. G. M. Clay, president of the
Bourbon Qobacco and Warehouse Co.,
on behalf of the officials of the con
cern delivered a short address to the
buyers and visitors. His remarks
were happily received. In the course
ut ms brief address Col. Clay thanked
the growers for the confidence they
displayed in the local concern by con
signing to it their product and gave
the assurance that the prices obtained
would be the equal of any secured at
any sales warehouse In the state.
He said that at a great expense local
caoital had erected the gigantic sales
warehouse in this city, and that its
success depended in a great measure
upon the growers, and the only way
tor them to contribute to it was by
furnishing tobacco for the local floors.
He predicted a good market and satis
factory prices for ihe product provided
the growers would supply the demand.
Mr. Kenney .Nichols, of Paris, man
ager of the concern, took charge of
affairs at the conclusion of Col.
Clay's remarks, and had direct charge
of the sales until the last pound of to
bacco was disposed of. Auctioneer
George Gibbons, of Lexington, and
Col. George D. Speakes, of Paris,
conducted the sales and succeeded in
disposing of the unusually large
amount of tobacco at prices that have
not been exceeded by any market in
Renresentatives of the American
Tobacco Co., P. Lorillard Co., L. Pet
ty Co.. J. P. Taylor Co., Ligcitt &
Myera, R. J. Revnolds Co., and others
were present. Bidding during the day
The highest price obtained during
the dav was realized upon a consign
ment ot J, W. Thomias, ofJdpurbon
county. The basket contained Je3S
than a hundred pounds, but being of
the very finest bright leaf, soared to
the highest point after spirited bidding
and was knocked off lo D. W. feed, of
Paris, at the rate of $40 per hundred.
About the highest average of the
day was made on the crop ot Hutch
craft and Linville. The consignment
was offered in twenty baskets of va
rious weights and was sold at prices
ranging from 13 1-2 lo 20 1-2 cents per
pound or an average of 18 77 per hun
dred for the entire cro. Another crop
belonging to Hutchcraft & Kern, con
taining 14 basketB, was sold for an av
erage of 16 cents per pound.
The second highest price received
on a single basket of the weed was
21 for a portion of the consignment
of Talbott and Biddle, of Bouibon.
The offering was of fancy bright leaf
and went to the buyer for Liggitt &
Henry Cay wood, of North Middle-
town, who had consigned an excellent
crop, disposed of his holdings at pri
vate sale and when it went under the
hammer it brought an average of 18
Carl Williams, oE near Paris, receiv
ed an average of 16 cents for his crop.
Pat Burke had a crop which brought
an average of 15 cents per pound.
Among the other " crops which
brought good prices were those of
John T. Hedges, James McClure, W.
H. Whaley, Jr.. Brent and Burke, Ja
cob? and Stewart and Buckner and
The first sale of the day was a bas
ket from the crop of Israel Jackson
and was knocked off at 12 1-2 cents to
Buyer Patton, of the R. J. Reynolds
Tobacco Co., and the second offering
from the same crop was bought by
Buyer Cdleman for Liggett & Myers,
at the same price.
Of the total of 2 00,000 pounds offer
ed at the sales Tuesday not a single
basket was rejected.
It is stated upon reliable auhority
that the prices obtained for the tobac
co Tuesday was at least 2 per hun
dred pounds higher all around than
the prices obtained for tobacco on the
Lexington market this season, or at
the sales of any other warehouse in
this section. This sentiment was
voiced by a large number of growers
and buyers and as an evidence of the
confidence of local producers in the
Pans warehouse, one grower who has
a large amount of tobacco in Lexing
ton stated he proposed to haul his to
bacco to Paris and put it on the local
Allison uraves, ot Louisville, in
charge of the American Tobacco
Company in Central Kentucky, and
at the head of the buying force was
a visitor on the market Tuesday.
Most of the tobacco offered was
purchased bv the leading concerns of
the country and was shipped imme
diately to the factories.
So rapjily was the iobacco receiv
ed at the local warehouse prior to
the sale that much of it had to be
turned away owing to a lack of floor
room, but after the grand clearing
Tuesday they began to receive tobac
co for the second sale which will be
held tomorrow and a full floor.
Beginning with next week it is
planned to have three sales each
week at the local warehouse.
Numerous tobacco sales have been
made in this county in the past few
