At any rate, all growers of tobacco

producer hns steadily declined ainl
unless Some relief Is afforded, these
men will bo forced to giv* up ral?!:..
a crop, which for generations has bei n
the moneyed crop of thole commuhl'.lia.
On the other hand, tiie governments
that buy, manufacture, and Seil this
tobacco derive enormous revenues
from It. which revenues are Increas?

and Japan and Spain v. ry l^jj-? reve?
