Adolph ecWsKocV, Safflo,N.Y.
Just at this time thetobcco grow
ers everywhere are very much In
terested in the price at which the
crop now in the barn will sell, and
the best way to market it In order
to obtain the highest possible price
for this, the money crop of our sec
tion. Shall the farmers organize and
sell through their own agents at
prices agreed upon by them and the
buying interests or shall each farm
er sell at hia barn door in competi
tion with every other farmer, at the
price fixed by the buying interests?
Clearly a majority of the farmers in
what is known commonly as the
"Black Patch" believe from experi
ence that they can better maintain a
fair range of prices by an organized
effort, as considerably over half of
them belong to one organization or
For the past few months all the
growers in the twenty-one counties j

grow the strict type of dark fired
export tobacco, have been very
much interested in the fate of the
Planters Protective Association,
which has for the past eight years
handled from twenty-five to sixty
per cent of the crop in these coun
ties. The three year pledges taken
in 1909 having expired, a strenuous
campaign of reorganization has been
going on all over the section for new
pledges, and at times it looked a3 if
the pledges would not be sufficient
to enable the Association to continue
business, as the management was
determined not to jeopardize the in
terests of those who had pledged, by
attempting to do business without
sufficient tobacco to maintain prices
and sell promptly; At a meeting of
the directors and officers at Clarks
ville. Saturday, Nov. 2, the acreage
pledged was compiled, and taking
the government crop report as a
basid, it was found that half or more
of the dark export tobacco grown in
these twenty-one counties had been
pledged, and the board voted unani
mously to continue business and aho
continue the campaign for additional
pledges. While the Association
management is confident they have
tobacco enough to enable them to
sell promptly and at better prices
than thoBe outside the Association
will obtain, yet it is a well known
fact the more tobacco we have the
more successful we will be in main
taining prices, for every crop out of
the organization means another
cjmpetitor in selling Certainly
with a mixed crop such as we now
have in the barn, it will sell at a bel
ter average price when properly as
sorted and prized, and each hogs
head sold to that trade for which it
is suited, will sell better than it will
loose at the barn door, and unques
tionably the fine crops of tobacco
will bring more money when prized
and sold through the Association, be
cause the demands for the highest
grade are not represented directed
in the loose buying.
The Association already controls
60 to 75 per cent, of the higher
gr ides of tobacco grown in the dis
trict, and some of the highest priced
trades do not buy any tobacco in
this district except through the As-
Bociacion, and all of them Bhow a
decided preference for the Associa
tion tobacco, so I do not he3itate to
eay to any farmers, with a good to
fine crop of tobacco, that he can get
more money for it through the Asso
ciation than any other way. The
counties in the district that grow
the best tobacco and have been in
the Association all the time, 'like
Robertson, Cheatham, Logan and
Calloway now have 75 to 95 per cent,
of their crops pledged Christian
and Todd are the only counties east
of the Tennessee river that have not
vet pledged a large per cent of
their tobacco, and many farmers in
these counties have said repeatedly
that they would join whenever they
were assured the Association had
enough tobacco, and yet they are
practically the only counties, that are
standing out. Should they come in
as the other counties have, it wou'd
unquestionably enable the Associa
tion to control the situation and oh.
ain the highest possible prices fjr
0 e objection that many offer to
coming into the organization ia the
fer that they cannut sell early.
Now this tobacco will begin to sell
as soon as priz-d and ready for mar
I. fit. and in fact much of it will Drob-

any grower that so desires
his tobacco sampled and sold just as
he did for years through the ware

True, some years, when there was
a decline in the market, tobacco has
sold as high or higher loose than
prized, but these years are the ex
ceptior:. I feel confident the Asso
ciation will be able to sell most
grades out of this crop as high as
Another point that might well be
considered by those that con tern
plated selling loose is, what would
be the probable result if the entire
crop should be dumped on the mar

last year this system prevailed over
the entire section, Christian county's
average was under four cents. The
ten year average prior to 1905 was
about five cents. For the past three
years, with the crops partly organiz
ed, the average has been practically
8& cents, notwithstanding two of tte
three were the largest ever grown.
