Tp. be in advance of all our contemporaries, whether daily or weekly, we devote a large portion of our regular space iii this issue together with a Supplement Sheet, to reports of proceedings connected with the subject of the tobacco ta.X. We look upon our labors for the week as evidence of j ournalistic enterprise, and doubt not our readers will entertain a similar view of the matter. THE TOBACCO-TAX IN WASHINGTON. MANUFA.CTUREJRS, DEALERS A.ND WARE HOUJJEMEN IN CONVENTION A.ND BEFORE THE COMMITTEE OF W A. YS A.ND M.EA.NS AND THE cOMMISSIONER OF IN-IMP OR. TER.&, to pay a generous and well-merited compliment to Dr. T R. Spence, of Cincinnati, a circumstance we are glad of an opportunity to chronicle THE CONVENTION. The tobacco manufacturers favoring a reduction of the tobacco tax metin convention at the Natioual Ho tel, Washington, on the evening of Monday, January 14th. The delegates named below were present on the as were, also, the following Senators and Representatives of the United States: Senators McCreary, of Kentucky; Johnson and Withers, of Vir ginia; and Herreford, of West Virginia. Representatives : Cabell, Tucker and Douglass, of Virginia; Rob bins, of North Carolina; Burchard, of Illinois ; Willis, of Kentucky; House, of Tennessee; Crittenden, of' Mis souri; and Judge Elam, of Louisiana. The, membera of the convention resolved themselves into a perma nent organization, to be known as the National Tobac co Association, with George C Ayres, of Danville, Vir ginia; as President, and C. H Conrad, of the same place, as Secretary. The discussion at this meeting took a wide range, embracing all the topics involved in the various questions relating to tobacco now before Congress. }4:r. Burwell opened in an elabomte address of nearly an hour's duration. He was followed succes sively by othe!delegates and the Senators and Repre sentatives, the latter evincing great interest in the pro ceedings, and appearing to be much impressild by the remarks of the speakers for the tobac co trade. The question of allowing farmers to sell tobacco to others than licensed or privileged buyers, was considered in -all its bearings. Probably never before was this bmnch of the tobacco question so thoroughly venti lated. A.t the close of the deliberations the delegates adjourned to meet on the following morning, Tuesday. Below will be found a full report of the proceedings on Tuesday. Possibly in one or two instances the re marks of speakers will appear in connection with the wrong name, as the names of delegates were not an nounced, when they rose to speak, and it was impos sible with the rapidity of the movements to obtain the names in!aJ.l!cases afterwards. PROCEEDINGS ON TUESDAY. The National Tobacco Association re-assembled in ro<1m 10 of the National Hotel, at 10 A 'M., on Tuesday the 15th. The meeting was called 01der by Mr. Geo. C. Ayres, the president of the association, who stated the object of the meeting, and added, that the privilege of the floor of the House of Representatives had been extended to the members of the association .Eie then called for the report of the' committee on resolutions, which had been appointed at tlie preliminary meeting, held the night before In resp<:mse, Col. W. P Burwell, of Richmond stepped forward anll presented the report, which the committee had agreed to ap.d instructed him to present to the association .recommending its adoption. The preamble' and reso lutions are substantially the same as those adopted by the Tobacco Board of Trade of Louisville, Ky:-. There were present at the meeting the following named gentlemen: Col. W. P. Burwell representing Cincinnati and Richmond L H. Frayser, J. Leigh Jones, P H. Mayo ; all of Richmond; C. B Raine, of C .A. Jackson & Co., Petersburg; G. W. Smith, of Lynchburg, his associates, J. M. Booker, R. T Lacy and W. H. Lloyd having previously returned home; C. G. Holland, J. J. Talbott, Goo. C. Ayres, Conrad, who also represented W T Blackwell & Co., of Durham, N.C., 'of W. S: of Va. : B. F. Parlett. Loms W arrmgto'!: J. B. Staff oro, Edward Norville, of Baltimore;' M .1!<. McDowell of Philadelphia; T A.llen, New York; and Harry .Weis singer, of L<>uisville. Mr D. Hirsch, of New York was among the visitors. The preamble and resolutions by the committee of the National Association, .were as follows: WmcREAS, It has been evident. from the 3d of March, 1875, the date of the passage of the bill increasing the tax on tobacco to twenty-four cents per pound, and that now, after nearly three years of sad experience it amounts to a positive knowledge that the present excessive tax of twenty-four cents on tobacco pre cludes a remunerative profit to the and dealer; and WHJtREAs, the average price of leaf tobacco is about five cents per pound, and the average price of manufactured tobacco forty-six cents per pound, which makes a greater percentage of difference than ever existed before between the raw and manufactured ar.ticle ; and WHEREAS, A.n artificial value placed directly on a article has much to do with the check in}iof its consumption j and _HEREA.S,A decrease ef the tax would not only lo er manufactureP. article, and thereby cau!le an increased consumption. but, we believe, enhance the of_ the raw material, and thereby restore a just eqmhbrmm between the raw and manufactured arti cle ; and WHEREAS, The high tax checks the natural increased consumption of manufactured tobacco, diverts it to the raw material, and encourages the growing of it in truck patches, and consumption thereof much to the detriment of the culture of tobacco as a commer cial product, and to the interests of-the manufacturer; and WHEREAS, tJ:Ie enhanced. value of currency and the depreCiated pnce of labor mto consideration the present tax is much greater than it was during highest times of general taxation; and WHEREAS, During the pending of the tax questionin Congress an almost complete cessation of the manufacturing of tobacco will take place; and WmcREAS, .we know that a prompt reduction of the tax would result in the profitable revival of all bmnches of this industry; therefore, Resolved That it is .the belief of the National Tobac co Association, that the tax on inanufactured tobacco should be reduced to at ltllll:lt twelve cents per pound at the earliest possible time. Mr. Talbott, of Virginia. offered as a substitute to the resolution the foHowing:Resolved> Therefore, that we approve the bill intro duced by the Hon. George C. Cabell i.ri 'the following features only, viz:-To'reduce this 'tax to 1-? cents per pound, and to allow a drawback oLthe difl'eren ce between the new and the oJd rates of all tli&stocks stamped in the manufacturers' hands, their agents and others at the time the new l a w takes e ffect. Mr. Cabell's bill was introduce'd. in the House of Representatives November 5, 1877, read twice referred to the Oo=ittee of Ways and Means an. d to be printed. It is now pending in that Co=ittee having been referred by the Chairman, Mr. Wood, tO a Sub-Committee on the Internal Revenllle, consisting

ssue of the Herald of the 3d a letter s gned P Lorillard & Co appeared concernmg the now much ag tated quest on of the tobacco tax and as some of the oonclus10ns arr ved at by the author of the same are erroneous you would confe a favor on us by g vmg our opm on on the same questwn space n your valu able JOUrnal We have been connected w th the man ufactur ng of tobaccos all through the dtfferent stages of taxes when they were ra sed ag well as when reduced and we have mvanably found that the change of the same never vaned the result of the year s busmess as m the case when the tax was ra sed we were very busy for a month or so prev ous to the advance and had little to do for a month or so thereafter and n case of reduction JUSt th& reverse were the results and tf as P L & Co assert, the ag:ttatwn of the quest on at the ttme has nad already such a dlSSStrous result then t would be mfimtely better for Congress to step m and finiSh up the busmess no "' by reduc ng the tax to a JUStifiable hnut and keep tt at that until we can diSpense w th t altogether for accordmg to the r own theory to drop the quest on now tate 1t agam at some future sess on of Congress wh ch ts sure to be the case would subJect the manufacturer to anotl er heavy lOBS But we hold on an average the factones are not domg any less now on account of the ag tat on of the tax quest on Our own exper ence IS that we have not sold one pound of tobacco less but on the contrary our orders bave mcreased for the past few months and we have t from good authonty that D H McAlpm & Co the next largest manufacturers to P L & Co m this sect on of the country have turned out more tobacco w th n the past two months than they have n a similar pertod for several years past ThiS proves nothmg however one way or the other the fact IS if some factor es employ only half the usual number of thetr help now and tf others have closed up the case must be looked for m the low pt ces whtch have been ruhng for manufactured tobaccos There was a tnne when th s busmess was a good one and speculat ve people had an dea the only thmg necessary to make a fortune n this busmess was to put up a factory and run t Manufactones sprung up the same as ron furnaces paper mtlls and other like enterpr ses the rroducts of wh ch far exceeded the demand hence the great compet ton which has brought rum u:pon many of the prdpnetors As to the tax Itself nothmg more need be sa d except that It IS h ghly unJust unw se and detnmental to the mdustry m questiOn as no mdustry can develop tself properly when on an average three fifths of the proceeas of tts products goes to the Government The tax on to bacco ts prop01 tionately larger n thiS country than m any other coUntry m Europe where the govern ments depend also to a large extent on t for revenue In Engla td for lllStance all dut es on nn ports and manufacturmg taxes are almost as perma nent as the planets and when a deficiency does occur m the revenue t s

seal ng ncome tax begmmng wtth $1 000 to $5 000 or over reduce or ncrease the rate at each ses s on of Congress as the necessity of the treasury may requ re then the tradesman as well as the manufac turerneed not fear these constant agttat ons and con sequent al f!uctuat ons of wh c h Mess s P L & Co complam There would also b e more JUStiCe m com pellmg those who can well afford It to help carry on the Government of makmg one class pay near ly one fifth of the whole there would be more JUSttc& to compel P L & Co and others who ares tuated like them to pay somethmg out of the r tmmense ncomes toward defraymg the expenses of the Government than to make farmers mechanics and laborers pay cents for every ounce of tobacco they may se Last ly if tobacco 1s so heavily taxed on account of Its bemg a luxury we would suggest that other luxur ous art cles such as candy coffee tea gold watches pleasure carrtages and horses yachts and many other art cles whtch the wealthy can only enJOY be taxed and the proceeds of the same be deducted on the to bacco tax Whether thiS be done by a d scount or otherw se IS tmmaterial If a plan of taxation like the above suggested one was adopted by

wtth Mr John Stra ton of Stratton & Storm New York large c gar manufacturers whose bus ness here was to prevent if poss1ble the strik ng c gar makers from illic tly recetvtng small suppl es of leaf

owmg to the strike but some nftuential persons have trted to make It appear that the decrease was chtefiy due to an ncreased use of c garettes Mr Stratton satd the strike of course had a great deal to do w1th the recent falling off but that wtth the extens on of trade last year the decrease shown nstead of mcrease m the manufacture of ctgars pay ng tax as there should have been was not caused by the mcreased use of cigarettes but by fraud upon the revenue wh ch the Comm BB oner had the power to 11top and should stop as a matter both of duty and patnot sm The Commtsstoner sa d he was j;lad of the suggest on and des red reformat on upon th s po nt Mr Stra ton sa d that t stood to reason that an n creased use of c garettes would not lower the tax be cause four c garettes would pay about the same tax as one c gar and that a c garette smoker .. ould smoke more than four c garettes for every c gar smoked by a ctgar smokflr so that mstead of the use of Cigarettes reducmg the revenue t ought to mcrease It by the snnplest rule of ar thmetiC Mr Stratton adm tted that the use of c garettes has greatly mcreased but sa d that the trade n them was a spasmod c one and never bothered the c gar

There are eighteen bills offered now, and if we favor any particular bill the authors of the others may take offense, and this would result in injury to our cause. MR. PARLETTI make the root10n that we leave out the leaf. clause. It seems to me that to say that weendorse Mr Cabell's bill is to go too far. If we leave our resolution worded in that way, 1t strikes me that we approve every feature in it; which we do not.

INTERVIEW WITH THE CHAIRHAN OF THE COMMITTEE OF WAYS AND MEANS. On appearing before the Chairman of the Committee, Mr. Burwell said:-Mr. Chairman: I appear as the organ of a body of tobacco men from different parts of the country who paid into the Treasury of the United States more than of the i41 ) 000,000 collected durmg the last fiscal year, and in ten years past more than $326,000,000, frOD;?-ihis staple In view therefore of ita re a"t10n to the puohc revenue, and' as a great ir{dustry, to receive the fosteriDg' rather than the hostile hand of the National Government, we ask your Committee to listen to our arguments in behalf of a reduction of this now ruinous tobacco tax of 24 cents to 12 cents per pound. We beg you to observe that in asking for a reductiOn to 12c per lb, we do not ask for a reduction of the revenue one-half; for if there is one more clearly established by the reports of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue than another, 1t is that a reduction of rate doee not in volve any reduction of the a.mount Of 'revenue.
