Is The Tobacco Situation In The
Green River District-Growers
And Buyers Can't Agree.
The tobacco situation in the Green
R'ver district just at present is at a
complete standstill, and neither the
buyers nor the growers are in a. posi
ilou tp state jst what the outcome
will be.
The samples at the olllce of the
Green Kiver'Tobacco Growers' asso
ciation have been examined oy many
of the representatives of the largest
tobacco industries In the country, mid
all are of the op'nion that the price
as fixed by the association of $6 to $10
for lugs and leaf and $3 for trash is too
high for the grade of tobacco offered.
They have gone so far as to be frank
with the officials of the associations
that $3 is about all that they consider
the tobacco is worth, according to the
samples presented to them.
It is almost a certainty that the as
sociation will not come down one pen
ny and will Insist that, they be paid the.
same price as they received last year.
It Is contended that while some of the
tobacco possibly is not up to the grade
ot last year, the cost of production has
not lessened in the least, and there is.
no reason why the farmer should be
asked to take any less than the price
fixed by the association.
The board of control of the Green
River association, which has been ia
session most of the past week, adjourn
ed Friday night to meet again on Tues
day, whon it is hoped that Mr. Hodge
of the Imperial Company will be In
Owensboro, and will also make an ex
amination of the samples. Mr. Hodge
is now on his way from England and
he is expected to be in this city by
In the meantime the tobacco grow
ers are telling the association to "stand
pat" and insist on the price as fixed
by it. The fact that no sale has been
made does not disturb the growers to
any great extent, as there has been no
stripping season, and even If the tobac
co had been sold, it could not be
brought to the markot until there is a
season. The indications are not very
favorable for a season teal soon.
At the Green River Equity office,
the officials have nothing to give out.
claiming that while things looked
ploomy just at this time, because the
buyers wore muci unconcerued about
purchasing the crop at the prices tlxed,
the farmers were not discouraged, and
wore perfoctly willing to wait for re
sults. Owensboro Inquirer.
