Kentucky Growers Paid $14,000,000
by American Company.
Louisville. Ky. Nov 20 The biir
deal between the American Tobacco
company and the Hurley Tobacco So
ciety for the 1908 crop and part of
the 1907 crop of tobacco, which has
been hanging fire for several weeks,
was closed yesterday The price
agreed upon in the transaction, which
is said to be the largest of its kind
ever put through, is an average of 30
cents a pound for the 19o crop and 17
cents for the 1907 product The deal
involved nearly R0.000.000 pounds of
tobacco held in the pool by the Ilur
ley Tobacco society, and an outlay of
about on the part of the
American Tobacco company, virtually
all of this money being placed in cir
culation at once in central Kentucky
1 lie tobacco sold includes the
larger part of the holdings of the Hur
ley Tobacco Growers' association,
which was formed several years aco
and pooled the crops in 190(1 and 1907
.no crop was raised by the members
of the association in 1903, although a
number of independents raised large
crops ir. central Kentucky, under
guard. According to many who are
in position to know, the sate of the
pooled crop will mark the end of the
night riders in central and eastern
Kentucky, at least for the present, as
it is thought that with these crops out
of the way virtually all of the growers
win raise tobacco next year.
