ciation of Kentucky Tennessee and
Virginia adding another state

200QQOThrd They have increased the
maximum Indebtedness which tho
corporation may Incur from 1 < XMI
as In the old to 5000 In the
now So while they have reduced the
capital stock SO per cent they have
Increased the amount of liability
they may Incur 1 0ft per cent which
permits them to assume a liability of
250 fur each 1 of stock
Fourth They are empowered by
this charter to buy and sell tobacco
In any way they may see fit In addi
I tion to handling It on commission
Fifth They havo taken away from
the farmer the power and
right which they had under the old
charter to elect their directors and
general officers and expressly con
erred It on the stockholders and the
stockho > ldersVboari of directors and
In doing so they have stabbed to tho
heart the farmers organization and
delivered tho farmers bound hands
and feet Into the merciless grip of
the lawyers combine

quietly swoop down upon a large
body of farmers take surreptitious
charge of the farmers business con
duct It according < ef their own sweet
wills and force the farmers to pay
them large sums of money for being
thus enslaved
enslavedThat
What then Is the status of the
farmer In this socalled farmers as
sociation as defined by the charter
under which It is now conducted Ifc
Is simply a voter for district chair
Ran and Indirectly for county chair
man nothing more It works like
this The Individual members meet
In their majesterlal districts and elect
the district chairmen these In turn
elect the county chairman who be
comes exHOIQclo a member of the
general executive committee but
the executive committee as such has
no voice whatever In tho election of
the general officers of tho associa
tion
This new charter provides for
fortytwo directors but < ut no election
Is to bo held until the fourth Monday
of September 190C they put this I
clause In the charter And until
the fourth Saturday In September
19CC the general manager shall have
full power and contro of the busi
ness of said corporation and the right
to employ such employee and serv
ants as he may deem necessary to
properly conduct the business of sale
association to fix their compensa
tion and to discharge the same at his
will So that from the time this
charter became operative until the
fourth Monday in September 19OG
the general manager Is the whole
thins1 more absolute than the czar

IlusslnWe
We have shown that this socalled
association Is not a farmers organ
ization nt all but A huge commission
company ownedand controlled by
those who were so fortunate as ta
obtain stock in It Now let us see
what the probable value of this stock
will be at the end of this seasons
business
It Is claimed that It has handled
30000 hogsheads this year with no
Increase In salaries or other expenses
so far as known Assuming that the
tobacco received with Average C4c
value per 100 pounds and that the
perquisites In the form of types
scraps and rejected samples are In
the proportion as last year the gross
Income of the business should not be
less than 5380000 Deducting
from this JSOOOOOO for expenses
which Is certainly liberal we have
left 3380000 to be applied as div
idends on the 200 shares of stock
whl < h would be a return of 10900
for each 1 share of stock or 1C 900
per cent on tho Investment Such a
percentage of annual profit on an In
vestment If shown to the managers
of Standard Oil would make them
turn green with envy they might
even quit business In disgust at being
so surpassed In the earning power of
their investments There is no legit
imate venture In the world of which
there Is public knowledge that can
approach It
