DEAL FOR TOBACCO
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
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
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
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.
Lexington, Ky., Dec. lf. W. L.
Potty, who was soloctcd at the mooting
of tho Independent Tobacco
Manufacturers at Cincinnati, to inspect
the pooled tobacco of tho
Tobacco Society bought by the
Independents, returned to this city
last night, and will begin his duties
of inspection tomorrow. Mr. Potty
The tobacco situation never looked
as bright as it does now, Tho pooled
crops havo been disposed of and tho
farmors havo or will havo money to
pay thoir indebtedness and buy
necessities and, in many cases luxuries.
Iris practically starting lifo
over again, and vou can bet thoy aro
going to make tho most of it. Indi
cation 8 arc for an cxtromoly
largo orop for l'J0!, and I think the
prico will bo good also.
"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."
