Society In Communication, Executive Committee of Burley Tobacco Shows How Such a Provision Would Work Destruction of the Movement-Opinion of Lawyers Given in Letter. In a communication to members the Executive Committee of the Hit ey Tobacco Society explnlns wh) no per ont clause was Inserted In the contract for the 1910 ool, nml wh such a clause could not 'tie embodied. Ucompiu)lng thin comniunlontlon ! n letter from Oil. John II. Allen, i ra ted March 5, In which la Muted the op inion of attorney for tho Society. 1 he letter follow Dear Sir Some persona who desire the ril.ll and destruction o( the Hurley Tobacco Society and who would In arcompllnh Ins tbslr puri)e, deliver the tobac co growers bound hand and foot Into the power of the Tobacco Trust, Bie through nl-wspapors and on the stump deinandliiK that a "(rper cent, clause lie Inserted In the pledge Since there may be honest men who honestly believe thai such a clause Hhould bo In the pledge, we take this means of telling )ou why those wl.o have your Interests at heart and whom ou have chosen to prote t jour property did not and coul not ItiHi-rt in thf llto pledge a 75 per cent clause The first pledge contained a tier cent clause, and we learned by expar Icnce '.bat there Ik danger In such a claim When we took legal Mpps again: men who broke their pledges aoiu Uwyer who could make the worse tause appearthe better would takt the ground that we did not have the re quired per cunt. In a community where oMceri of the law and public sentiment were In (avor of pooling, the verdict would bo for the soclet. In communities where the ottlcers cf tho law- nml public sentiment wrio tgalcst pooling, tho verdict woub' he for the man who broke his pledge. In this wa the lots of tho pooled tobac co worked hardship to thu honest members. Seeing the dlruultv that It mad?, our Li'iifi nd vised u not to put a per cent clause In uubs-tiuent contracts. We lajlude in this circular a lett-j-from Col. John It. Allen giving his opinion on this subject. The General Assembly has passed all the laws necessarr to protect our Society If we use common sense and the light of experience. Put to put a er cent clause in the 1910 pledge would open a gap through which con tract breakers could escape. A per cent clause In the contract aojld oulv make a mark for lliu Trust to shoot at. If wu inserted a 7i"j (.er cent clause the Trust would have only to buy up 26 per cent and thus make any pool mposslble. I! liv ing bought the smallest fraction over nne-foatth of the crop at good prices the Trust would be able to control the remainder of (he crop for anything It was pleased to pay. The way to Ret 73 per cent pUdged is to xo alter It and not to waste tlru-j and energy In a wrangle about a tech nicality that would seriously weaken the pool. The my reason that vi have not 7f per cent or 85 per cent lo tho 1909 pool Is that solllsh or short sighted men claiming to be tho grow ers' frlemls mado war on us during the last pooling season and confus- n and misled tho people. Don't be mis led this time. Extending tho time of declaring tho pool to November 1st give two boards the opportunity to pass on It. Tbu old board has the right to declare th9 iool off prior to October 1st, if In their Judgment they deem It boat. Tim new board, elected about October Jt and representing tho will of those who have Just elected them, will have the right to declaro the pool on or off beforo November 1st. Heceuty wo mailed you a four-page sheet containing a full discussion or the matters of difference between tho Society and those who seek our ruin Wo earnstly hope that you will take tlnio to read all that Is In those four pages and also the contents of a sic ond sheet which we shall send you In u few days. It Is the farmers' fault to work too much and to road "id think too little. It Is Just as neces sary to maintain an organization to Itls to grow It Sincerely )ours, EXECUTIVE COMMITTED II, II LBV TOIIACCO SOOILTV. Letter from Col. John R. Allen. Lexington, Ky, .March f, I'JIO Executive Hoard of Hurley Tobacco Society, Clt. (lentlemen- Mr. Pendleton and myself in gone over the dralt of the plcuge foi the year 1910, and return tho bi,h with certain amendments and chang es which we suggested and which are noted thereon. We have heretofore ndvlx'd the Hoard vrv stronglv not to emboo.v In the plelge foi luio any gtiiratity of the percentage of tobacco to be pooled or an) number of acres to i pooled oefore the pool becomes effect the, and we are glad to know after talking with the Hoard that the major ity of the Hoard agree with m In this opinion. Our experience with litigation prow Ing out of suits against dumpers Is thit a guaranty 'of a certain percent age of the acreage or a giurantr of a percentage of the amount of tnhaiu to bo pooled before the pool becon.es effective was a great detriment to us under the l'.tOC pledge and put us at a great disadvantage, because In ev ery Instance the parties plead that we did not have the percentage pooled js we claimed, and It would necessitate It the same clause were contained In the Ulu pledge, a great deal of troub le and expense and Investigation In order to prove that we hnd the neces sary percentage pooled Yours very truly.
