NUMBER 29 ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING OF THE STEMMING DISTRICT Association -Offer on 15,000,000 Pounds of Tobacco Discussed STRONGLY OPPOSE SELLING PART OF 1908 CROP LEFT TO COMMITTEE. Judge Aaron Towery, Presided oyer Thursday, Dec. 10, at 1 o'clock p. I in., the fanners of Crittenden county to tho number of five hundred at Marion to conmder ttio tobacco situation and t lie offer made for Ifi.OOO.OOO pounds of certain typos. Judge Aaron Towcrv, for this county, pro Kided over the meeting. The following resolutions were offered : Resolved, firt Wo wish to most heartily ondorc tho action of our County Chairman. W. B.

DEAL FOR TOBACCO STILL PENDING' Bradley Wilson, of Madisonvillc, chiirman of tho county organization and of the special committee appointed to ariango tho details concerning the consummation of thn deal between the Planters' Protective Association and tho Imperial Tobacco Company returned from Guthrie Wcdncday, where ho had been attonding a moot inn of th" committee. Tho committee ami General Manager Ewing wore in conforonoo with tho representative of the tohacco company Tuesday, considering tho offer made by the latter for tho purchaso of tho 008 crop pledged to thn Association. The committee Hiihmittcd thoir schedulo of prices to tho representatives of tho tobacco company and informed them that thoy could only sell by grade and not in tho loose leaf. Tho bono of contention betwoon tho Planters' Protcctivo Association and tho Imperial Tobaoco Company is whether tho tobacco will bo sold in tho loose leaf or by grade. Tho Association are firm in thoir stnnd for tho latter, and if thn Imperial purchases any of tho 1008 orop from this somoty thdy will probably havo to aooopt it in tho stato tbat tho Association oontonds for, the grades ExCommittecman the Meeting. ing reolutions be so amended that tho executive, committee may know the Crittenden county members of tho Stemming District Association aro strongly opposed to selling a part of the IfJUS crop and leaving a part unsold rather than that we say prize fho whole crop. Which amendment was carried unanimously. After which the itinns as amended wore unanimously passed. It wa obvious and appnrcnl to all that had the executive committee advised standing to the price of eight cents, or, in cajc of uo sale, prizing tho crop, the member ol Crittenden county had promptly and loyally followed thondvioo. Which affirmation suggosts to this writer to record right horo that tho members of this Association aro in possession of spirit and courago of ample Mifficiency to cut a crop out in WOO or for any year thereafter. Who?" shuts hi eyes to that fact is not wise. Crittendon county is conspicuously fortunate in tho possesion of many good speakers who aro zealous advocates of farmers' co-operation being packed in light weight hog-heads. The committee will probably bo called together again in a few days and thoy, in conjunction with Manager Ewing, will in all probability consummate the deal. Tho farmers will have plenty of money for thoir Christmas purchases and it will be a big triumph for this Association. Madisonvillo Hustler. NO CLOUDS IN TOBACCO SKY OF BURLEY DISTRICT.

"Tho present high prices for tobacco nro abnormal and out of place in a way. Of course, the crop has been good und tho manufactured needed tho tobacco, making competition keen and the prices good. I havo been talking to sovcral growers about the prico of tobacco and they soomod to think that from 10 to 12 cents per pound would bo abou right and would giro thorn a good profit on thoir investment. "I don't know what to nay about a pool for next year. . In j a pool will not be necessary for the 1909 crop. The large oo companies have oone to an under standing with the growers taresgk the Knity people and a better understanding exists Detween the. For that reason, I do not think a pool is necessary, but cf course, that is np to those tha t grow the tobacco."
