ALLEN IS A WINDER 1 lie Gets the Cigar Makers to Com bine, And Millions Will Be Pool. Fut in the MR. ALLEN. IS WELL KNOWN HERE The Small Fellows Are to Be Crowded to the Wall by Tills Gigan tic Deal. The Advertiser of New York contains this interesting information to people in this section : Twenty of the leading cigar manufac turers of this city held a meeting 3-ester-day afternoon in the office of T. II. Al len, No. IS Broadway. The object of it j was carefully concealed, and all informa tion regarding it was withheld from re porters. It was learned, however, that the meet ing was held to perfect plans for the for mation of a gigantic cigar trust to in clude all the prominent cigar manufac turers in the United States. It is pro" posed to organize the tmst on the same lines as the consolidation of the five lead ing cigarette factories which took place less than two years ago. The meeting was held in accordance with a call pub lished in The Tobacco Journal. Mr. Allen admitted to a reporter of the Morning Advertiser that the cigar man ufacturers present had agreed to form a combination which would include 25,000 manufacturers of domestic cigars, and that they would have an aggregate capi tal of $25,000,000. A committee had been appointed, and the arrangements were well under way "It is a big undertaking," he said, "and will require some time to be put on a working basis. It cannot be called a 'trust,' however; it is a combination to decrease the cost of production and to rid the trade of a number of middlemen, who go between the manufacturer and the retail dealer, and absorb all the profits there are in the business." Another manufacturer said: "The ob ject of the 'combine' is to 'down' the leaf merchants by consolidating the big man ufactories. We will send out our own buyers to purchase leaf from the planters. If it is found that the dealers demand too high a ! price for Connecticut leaf, the buyers may go to Amsterdam and else where for Sumatra wrapper. This action will bring the native planter to terms." The manufacturers of clear Havana cigars will not be included in the trust. Only domestic goods are concerned. Straiton & Storm have so far fought shy of the trust, but they believe it will be a good thing for the trade. If the combi nation succeeds it will be a severe blow to the jobbers who are now making money by handling the goods for the re tail trade. It is, as stated by Mr.-Allen, the object of the manufacturers to drive them out of the market and they will probably make no terms with them. It is likely that domestic cigars will be cheaper during the fight between the jobbers and the manufacturers, but if the former are driven to the wall the manu facturers will be in a position to dictate prices. The idea of the trust was suggested soon after the passage of the McKinley bill. Meetings were held on a small scale from time to time, at which it was agreed to raise the prices, but the new price list was rejected by the jobbers, and a good deal of "cutting" was the re sult. A lot of small manufacturers sprung up and offered the jobbers Sumatra-wrapped goods at low prices. The big manufacturers then agreed to con solidate, and the first meeting was held several months ago. It is understood that the stock of each concern will be appraised, and corporation bonds for its value will be issued to its owner. The factories will still be conducted by the ; present owners, and each will turn his profits into a pool, to be divided pro rata. Expenses will be much reduced. The primary object of the trust," how ever, it is said, will be to facilitate the purchase of tobacco. This will be bought in such large quantities that the manu facturers will be able to control its prices absolutely. This i3 an important item, as the output of the factories included in the proposed combination is over half the entire production of the United States. LOOK AT THIS.

THE JOHN ROBINSON SHOW Presenting a New Factor Amusements. in - Tented Solomon, the sagest and grandest of the Hebrew patriarchs, when he uttered that phrase, since become an axiom, that "there is nothing new under the sun," could he "revisit the glimpses of the moon," would find that while his axiom still finds verification, yet that old things have become new in the reproduction and rehabilitation of the scenes, episodes and incidents characterizing his long and memorable reign. In placing be fore the people, by the John Robinson show, the grand biblical spectacle of "Solomon, his Temple, and the Queen of Sheba," a realistic, living illustration of the most sacred and most impressive scenes and events, of biblical history is presented in vivid and entrancing form, and offers the most enjoyable and mind nourishing afternoon and evening's en tertainment ever projected or conceived. It certainly is a master-piece of policy in the management of the John Robin son show to thus so materially and ac ceptably augment their already stupend ous exhibitional enterprise, which, as almost everybody is aware, is character ized as exhibiting the biggest and best circus, the most interesting menagerie and the largest hipprodrorne on the con tinent. The combined -exhibitions, of which may be said that they are given without additional entrance fee, arc to display here Thursday, Oct. 15. A HARD JOB.
