Grass counties have issued the following call for a meeting of tobacI thatLexington Ky Dec 2 1910 To the Burley Tobacco Growers of the Burley District of Kentucky Ohio and Indiana GentlemenIn view of the exist conditions with reference to thej present Burley tobacco market and the gloomy prospects for the future believe it is the duty of all Burley tobacco growers to give immediate and careful consideration to our terests along these lines We suggest that while there may ve heretofore existed honest differ of opinions as to the best or proper methods to be pursued by the growers of tobacco in the interest of cropvalttethese states we are satisfied it is no t apparent that some consideredand cooperative action should be taker all parties interested and for the purpose of having a full and fair dis cussion of the best method and plan be adopted for our protection of this great business we now callupon Burley tobacco growers to meet at court house in Lexington Ky on Dec 19 1910 at 130 oclock p m Information is given out by those interested in the movement outlined in the above call that each and every ner of this call is an Independent grower That is they have not here tofore been members of the Burley Tobacco society although they have not been directly antagonistic to the pooling plan It was learned that the list of signers to the call for this meeting to beheld in Lexington on Monday Dec includes many of the most prorai nent and substantial farmers and to bacco growers in the counties of Fay ette Madison Woodford Jessamine Mercer Bath and Owen and that o account of what was stated to be th discouraging and ruinous prices now prevailing as well as the equally gloomy prospect in store for them i the future they have been prompte- to take this step and hold a meeting all the tobacco growers for the purpose of getting together on some common ground and working out a plan fo rtheir mutual selfprotection Judging from the general dissatis 1Cfaction apparently prevailing among all th etobacco growers on account of the treatment received by them at f- lthands of the American Tobacco company in withdrawing their buyers from the field and immediately crushing prices as soon as the pool of tl Burley society was dissolved this meeting promises to be largely attended and probably means a unitir of all the tobacco growing interest the
