Aug. 15.—With the recent purchase of 70.000 acres of land from the new Asahau Tobacco Company, the United Statea Rubber Company, through Its sub sidiary. the General Rubber Company, has acquired 88,000 acres of laud »n Su matra. and not 120,000 acres, a* reported In Boston dispatches. Prior to thin last purchase the rubber company spired two parcel*) of land of 10,000 and 3,000 acres respectively. On the latter a large num ber of rubber trees have already been planted. The purchase from the New Asahau Tobacco Company is regarded by the management of the rubber com pany as particularly valuable. It Is au thoritatively stated that when these 3,000 acres are producing the United States Rubber Company will be fn an independ ent position with respect to the crude product. In buying these lands in the Far East no effort has been made to control the crude rubber supply. The only idea has been to strengthen the position of the United Slates company, particularly during periods of extreme fluctuation!) such as have prevailed In the trade for some time.
