No more enthusiastic farmers’ meeting has ever been held in this countv than that of the Tobacco Growers’ Association, held at Mor ganza on Saturday last. The growers are show ing that they are wide awake to the necessity of a more uniform system of grading tobacco and of improving the marketing conditions generally. It had been hoped that a represen tative of the Leaf Tobacco Association, of Baltimore City, would be present and in calling the meeting to order John B. Key, secretary of the State Tobacco Growers’ Association, ex plained that the weather condition had prevent ed the attendance of the expected speaker and invited a general discussion by the growers pres ent. This was participated in by Harry O. Reeder, Samuel Hayden, Stephen M. Jones, F. W. Hutchins, Samuel B. Hayden, William S. Thrall, B. B. Love, G. F. Wathen, Jr., and James C. Greenwell. The latter, representing tuyers who plan to bid for the Southern Mary land crop, clearly set forth the object of the present campaign for more . careful packing and pointed out the advantages to be derived there- Briefly, Mr. Greenwell’s proposals include the building of a local warehouse, where tobac co can be delivered by the producer to the buy er, and there graded and packed by him, insur ing a uniform method of packing and grading that cannot be obtained where this important work is done on the different farms with no cer tain standard or system prevailing No mattei how much difference of opinion there may be about the actual marketing of to bacco, and it is regrettable that the Leaf Tobac co Association failed to have their representa tive at the meeting to present their side of the question, it is agreed by all concerned that the price, and consequently the standard of Mary land tobacco, has been 1 iwereci by careless and inexperienced packing, resulting in placing it in an inferior grade, to the monetary loss to the producer and to the prejudice of one of our staple products. Mr. Greenwell very forcibly presented his arguments in favor of his plan to remedy condi tions, the existance of which is generally admit ted and deplored. In a word he proposes the bringing of the market to the county, and there properly grading and picking the tobacco, so that it will reach the ultimate buyers in shape to command the highest price. That the farmers piesent were most favor ably impressed with the honesty and sincerity of his purpose and of the advantages that would _ jLpcrue from the system he advocated, was evi denced by the remarks made by the speakers who followed him in the discussion. A reso lution, offered by F. W. Hutchins, urging every grower to strip and grade his tobacco in a uni form manner that would permit the buyer to properly examine and class it, was unanimously adopted. The interest manifested in keeping up the good work of the association was very gratifying and shows that the farmers are waking up to the fact, that has been demonstrated in ever) other industry, that through organization and co operation, agncultural conditions can be very materially improved . The growers of tobacco are the ones most vitally interested in raising the standard of the Maryland crop, and they are to be congratulat ed upon their recognition that the value of their product is dependent upon a uniform packing and grading system.
