' 4 THE TOBACCO LEAF. ,()8Jl, in my offiCial capacity as one of the secretaries of the National Tobacco AssociatiOn, a meeting of the man-ufacturers of fine-cut and plug tobacco at thiS time and plaCe. This call was not made without some hesitancy 88 to the result, but the responses have shown me that I have not mistaken your wishes in this matter. :Many of these responses to my invitation contained requests that the plug-tobacoo manufacturers of the United States be invited to attend the meeting at this trme .As I was not advised of the oHhese gentlemen nor the interests of every branch of the trade, I pre ferred to confer with them upon the subject, and wrote a circular letter to fifteen of the larger manufacturers of the country, announcing to them that thiS call had "been made, responded to. and a. meetmg held, and that 1 had been asked to invite the plug-tobacco men to attend at the same time, and I would be governed by their wishes as indicated in their replies to my letters, and gave them a list of the names of the firms wtth -whom I had corresponded on this subject I received but five responses, I think, to these letters, and the eharacter of them Willi not such as to justify me m making a call for a. meeting of the plug tobacco manu .facturers, however anxious we may be for their co-oper -ation, and however unfortunate may be the number of them who rather reduce the quality of tobacco than -advance p;ices. The responsibility, gentlemen, IS theirs and not ours. I congratulate you on the large attendance, fully nmety per cent. of the manu:fa.cturer!! of the country being repre11611ted here, and I bespeak your candid and pat1ent-your intelligent consideration of the views that will be presented, and I confidently hope that the combined wisdom and cexperienee o ( the gentlemen present will so far im prove the existmg cond1tions that the interests of the producer, manufacturer, jobber and the consumer of tobaccO will be promoted by our action at this Con-vention. I now mpve the formal orga.mzation of the ConventiOn by the electiOn of General G W. Helme, of New York and New Jersey, President of the Na! -tional Tobacco Association, for President of this Con-vention. General Helme bemg promptly elected, on assmmng 'the chair said GENTLEMEN OF TEIE -I thank you for "the honor you have conferred upon me in ca.lling upon me to preside at your deliberations, but let me say my position to-day is somewhat of an anomaly. I am not in the fine-cut mterest, which you are called to consider, and it does not seem to me proper that I ahould be-or should expect to be-ca.lled upon to preaide at your deliberations. Having participated with :many of you in your struggle for the reduction of the tax on tobacco for fine-cut, plug and snuff, I felt an interest in common with you, and have come to :your Convention expecting to listen and profit by your deliber&Uons, but with no expectation of acting as your chairman." And, gentlemen, my .position seems to me the more emba.rrMslpg, IU3 it Willi expected, and is now expected, that Mr. Siedler, from the Ea.st, who -represents a. large mterest m fine-cut, will be present. As he is absent, 1t IS thought best to go on With our de liberations with whatever conclusiOns we may arrive .at. There Is however, this to be considered-if no 1:1ther good shall come out of this Convention, this good will result from 1t that by associ&tion together and by a comparison of 1deM we shall be bAnefited, It will elevate the trade. It 1s one great fault that we have experienced m the tobacco trade--the want of conferences; we do not mix together M other trades do to consider their several interests and to profit by an interchange of views; and 1f we do nothmg more than that, an interchange of views and a closer acquaintance w1th each other, I think we sha.ll have ac -complished some good. There is great reason, gentlemen, why this Convention should take place. Those of us who have been upon the brakes to-day nave seen the great advance that hM been made m leaf tobacco-an advance of nearly one-half of the reductiOn' of the tax on tobacco. Now, for various reasons-for the reason, perhaps, that there has not been that mterchange of feeling and acquaintance one with a.notiler-there ha.s sprung up m the trade a Jealousy and competition, whwh under the h1gh rate of tax has borne very he&vily upon this particular branch of trade-the finecut interest-and the result has been that with the high pnce of leaf and wtth the low grades of fine-cut tobacco, and the high tax, there has been very little profit to the manufacturers. That Willi the first great stimulus that mduced this ConventiOn; and now, havmg convened, Its necessity becomes apparent, from the fact that as a result of th1s reductiOn the very argument that was presented to the members of Congress as a reason why this should be done 1s bemg exemplified, that is, that w1th a low rate of tax the price ef leaf would advance. It has been, unhappily for us now, to such an extent that it becomes imperative at this moment to convene IU3 we have, and to consider the questiOn of the prwe of fine-cut tobacco, and 1113 a. consequence of smoking and plug tobacco .and of snuff, of which last I am particularly repre sentative. Without detammg you longer, gentlemen, .I now gtve place to the meetmg for a free mterchange -of sentiment upon the subjects alluded to. Doctor Spence then remarked -When a very large majority o f the ent1re trade North, South, East and West were m Washmgton, at their meetmg General Helme was unanimously elected President of thfl National Tobacco AssociatiOn of the Umted States, and his election was confirmed With the understanding that he should remam such until h1s successor was ap pomted, and although not partiCularly mterested in plug-tobacco, he has gone to the expense and trouble of .eoming to this city, and as Prestdent of the Conven tion here will certamly be m his proper place at that table. :Mr. A. C. Marshall being at this moment elected ,Secretary of the Convention, S!l.ld -lowed by Dr Spence, who .said -That motion was offered, and very properly offered, for the purpose of solicitmg the views of the gentlemen present. I thmk that a very full and free disc u ssio n should be made upon It I take It for granted that Willi the obJect of my fnend Mr. Weissinger, and it IS impqss1ble to lead ourselves to b elieve that this IS not a pretty difficult matter. We know where the d1fficultuls are, and we hope that some of them may be solved, and the only way they can b e solved is by knowing what the repre sentatives of the trade 10 parts of the country think about It Now, 10 speakmg of tnts resolution, I would Just say this as a central pomt-as a fulcrum upon which we mght rest in discussing, and commg to whatever conclusiOllS we may have on this question. On account of the co npet1t10n 10 the tobacco trade, the plug tobacco manufacturers have been mvited to partiCipate There IS very httle dtfference really 1n the merits of the case m the different branches of manufacture-smokmg, fine cut or plug. There IS no doubt that m the ent1re tobacco trade competition dur mg the few years past has been as active m our manu facture as that of any other, that IS, that we have fur nished goods jus t as choop as we poss1bly could fulmsh them Without absolute loss ; and perhaps we have in some instances even gone beyond that pomt of safety to where there has been actual los s I suppose that thiS has happened to every gentleman m the trade for the last three years-the last' two particularly that our product has been put at the lowest p0881ble po10t consistent with the cost of 'the mater1al. _Until a few years ago we all know that leaf tobacco was on a descending scale sliding dow1 1 from a tolerably high figure 1t reached an extremely low one, and this de crease was gradual but constant durmg the perwd, you may say, of three yoors, and the pnce of manu factured goods fellm consequence-m direct harmony with the descendmg value of leaf I believe 1t fell more, and that when leaf reached the lowest pomt, which It did last yoor, we were m akmg sma.ller profits from 10vestments than we ever d1d when loof was at a h1gher prtee Now, that being the cMe, if we were manufacturmg IU3 close as it was possible under those circumstances, smce the leaf has taken a turn and gone up steadily now for the last few months without any prospect of thiS movement bemgchecked m the rmme diate future, It seems that unless we are willmg to act, a. losing business and bankruptcy would follow Some change-is necessary. L eaf has ad va.nced fifty per cent., and is still advanc10g Now, what I want you to diS tmctly understand IS this. the nectlSSity of some change in our prices When the price of leaf was down to a mtmmum, we were vending at the lowest possible notch, and now leaf has advanced fifty per cent., and we still manufacture at the lowest prices That IS the position we are 1 n What the remedy is I do not know. All thie ccurred at a. very peculi&r a favo able trme-';when the tax lS going to be 'reduced, and it is difficult to change our prices at all, It is easter probably to change them when a reductiOn IS made m the tax-rate than otherwise. I cannot but believe that good results will fiO'!V from it, but I hope these gentlemen here present Will express themselves freely on this resolutiOn :Mr W. R. Boyd here asked -Would It not be in order to inqmre at thts time what number of manufac turers are present at this meetmg1 I thmk we are actmg prematurely, unless there IS a sufficient ma jority of the trade to carry forward and put in effect the resolutwn that has been offered by our friend :Mr We1ssmger. Mr. Chas. R Messinger sa1d -As I understand the object of this meetmg, It IS for the purpose of umtmg to estabhsh mtmmum prices on low grades of fine-cut smoking and chewmg tobacco In order to brmg the question before the meeting, I will offer this resolution Resolved, That we as manufacturers of fine cut chewing and smoking tobacco agree to sell no grade of smokmg less than 23 cents, and no grade of fine-cut chewmg less than 40 cents to the JObbmg trade, no drawback of any kind to be made to purchMers except the usual discount of two per cent. for cash or suty days' time. ThlS I offer as a substitute The Secretary now read the list of firms represented and of absentees. The President:-The consideration of Mr Weissmger's resolution is now before you. Mr. ButlAr -I would like to see the gentleman's motion voted down. I believe If the vote of this Convention represents Its sentiments, we are here for the purpose of devismg some means for mak10g money. That 1s what I am here for, and I hope the member will Withdraw it. Mr. Whalen -I would propose to pass no resolution of that k10d or any other kind until we have a perma nent orga.mzation-an organization that would exist after we get through here, and one that we could refer all difficulties to m trymg to enforce whatever we have decided on here If we dec1de on a schedule of pnces here before we leave, how are we gomg to keep these prwes i I Will move a.s soon as this motion 1s dis posed of that we form a permanent orgamzation, with pres1dent, secretary and board of directors, and that this board of directors meet regularly for the con SideratiOn of any compla10ts or differences that may be met w1th 10 carrymg out the views of this con ventiOn. Mr WeiSsmger-If I am not understood It IS not my fault, I do not declare that we are not assembled here for the purpose of making money. I simply say that we do not want to make money out of the reduc tion of the tax, we Simply want an advance on manu factured tobacco in orde r to cover the advance on leaf I d1d not say we are not here for the purpose of makmg money. Mr. Noonan moved that a committee (of seven on resolutwns be appomted GENTLEIIEN :-As this is a meeting for the considera tion of the question of prices, it would not be proper that there should be any general repon; through the press made of the proceedmgs and of the meeting other than that part1cularly confined to the tobacco -paper!!. It strikes me, gentlemen, that it is highly proper that m the deliberatiOns of this Convention there should be no press mention other than that of the tobacco journals, and that Wlth such reservations 88 you may here determine to impose before we adjourn. :Mr Weissinger then said -Mr Ch!!-Irman l beg to withdraw the resolution. There seems to be some nus understandmg about It, and after the resolUtiOn IS withdrawn, I beg to ask you, Mr Chairman, what are we assembled here for? We cannot act unless a.11 know what we are going to act for. On a. motion to exclude the reporters, the meeting divided and declared in the negative. Mr. ;s, G. Butler then l!llld -Imove tl:a.t this meeting lie cODiidered oBeof geaeral discussion by plug-tobacco manufacturers as wellM by fine-cut. We are as anx ious to hear from them as from the fine-cut men for the purposes of discussiOn; therefore, l move that they be mVIted to partake m the discussions liberally. On mot10n of Dr. T. R. Spence, Mr. J. G Butler Willi Assistant-Secretary, and on Mr. Noonan's en qwry for mformat10n 1t was moved that the act10n of the New York Tobacco AssOCiation be reported to the Conventio Mr. Edward Burke then read from THE ToBACCO J,EAF the report of the meetmg of tobacco manufacturers at the Astor House on Thursday, :March 6. Mr. Weissmger now sa1d -If it is proper for a plug tobacco manufacturer to offer a resolutiOn, I desrre to -offer this one Mr. B. Letdersdorf 89Jd .-When I walked down the brakes this morning I met a manufacturer, and talked with h1m about the tax on tobacco, and Its effect on the tralle when the law went mto operatiOn, May 1, and in conversatiOn he s&Id to me -''Mr. Leidersdorf, you will see that these men that assemble th1s after noon are afraid of each other. They wont say what they will do, they will Sit and listen, and," as the gentleman did just now, ''want a committee appomted to represent their views" Now, I think we are a committee, and each man can speak for himself. I want to make some money out of It, and I do not see how I can make excuses to my customers about it. I do not see why we should not get right at what we want, and 1f we can agree, let us Sign and be true to v{hat we sign, if we cannot agree let us go home Mr. Whalen' s mot10n bemg put to vote, was lost. Mr. Weissmger read his resolution, and said -My resolutiOn 1s for the purpose of brmgmg this matter before you for m order to get at the matter without any delay Mr Wilson, of New York -The question is whether under that resolutiOn persons have a r1ght to put up fine cut tobacco m p&Ils at 40 cents a pound.

The whole trade has been demoraliZed by this shrmkmg of finecut tobacco. If we could mduce people to use foil o:qly, there would be some way m whwh manufac turers could mcrease their standard; but by sellmg It out m pails at retail, gtvmg the opporturuty of sell ing fifty different brands of tobacco from the same pail, degrades fine -cut to such an extent that 1ts con sumptiOn IS almost bemg obliterated, and there 1s but one thing for fine-cut manufacturers to do, and that IS to'abandon common trasl;l and attempt to elevate goods to such a standard that people will use' them, and I do not thmk this is posstble if we have a 36-cent Mr. MesBinger -When I -made that resolutiOn for a nunimum figure of 40 on chewmg tobacco, the thought occurred to me that had the tax been reduced to 20 mstead of 16 cents, there IS not a. manUfacturer m the country that would have taken oft' a cent I th10k of the gentlemen are losing s1ght of the fact of this great advance m leaf, and I think the idea m placing the figure at 40 cents lS to make a better and more satisfactory grade, If we have to make any at all, and put better goods on the market than we have been havmg. Some tobacco has been sold at 32, 35 and 36 cents, but this has been at a loss, and I behave 1t would be very poor policy to-day to establish any such pr1ce as 36 cents, and I could not consent to anythmg of that kind I thmk that 40 cents IS low enough, but I give that figure for the pur pose of br ngmg 1t before this assocUI,tion for d IScussu)n .nore than anything else. After a few words from :Mr Whalen urgmg his motwn, :Mr. Ax s&Id:-It makes very: little dtft'erence to us whether 86 or 40 cents be decided u:Pon, but, as I s&Id before, by fixmg the pr1ce at 40 cents we may uot accomplish anything but the dr1vmg of chewing tobacco out of the market. It w11l be made and sold as here tofore, manufacturers will make a low grade, and others w1ll be compelled to w1thdraw from the agree ment. For that reason I would prefer to see 36 cents it.dopted as a. mmimum basts, still, I yield to 40 cents 1f all the rest do, but I thiuk it would be advisable not to fix 40 cents If we fix 40 cents they will go below 40, but 1f we fix 36 they will not The mot10n to make the rate 36 was put and nega tived. Mr. Butler .-I now move 37 cents be the mte and hope 1t will be voted down. Negatived. Mr Messmger's resolutiOn for 40 cents was then carried by a large major1ty. The quest1on of the mmimum rate for smokmg then commg up, It was moved that manufacturers agree to sell no smokmg tobacco for less than 23 cents. Whereupon Mr. Leidersdorf sa1d -You are a.ll aware that many manufacturers make a great many stems up that are sold mstea.d of burnmg them. Could not that resolu tiOn be made to cover the whole ground. Mr. Frishmuth inqmred whether the mtrumum meant 40 cents in barrels or pails. Mr Leidersdorf made a mot10n embodymg his sug gestiOn. Mr. Butler success1vely moved the msertwn of 19 and 20 cents m the resolution on smoking mstead of 23, and hoped they would both be voted down Mr. Watterson suggested 24 cents Mr. Hills, of St Louis -The large amount of stems produced m the country by plug and fine-cut manu facturers should be utilized to some extent for the benefit of poor people-the people who are obliged to smoke a lower grade of tobacco, and to put the pr1ce .at 24 cents 1s to entirely exclude the product from the market, and It would have to go to the fields for manure or have to be burned. That is a great waste of money-an ent1re waste by reason of this 24 cents Now, stem goods are sold to day at 28 ceuts, which IS 4 cents over the tax. It Is a tobacco used to a great extent by laborers and others, and there IS a tremen dous product of the stem from every factory whwh must be ut1lized by somebody, and It w1ll not brmg 24 cents after the 16-cent tax IS applied and conse quently It hM got to be burned or used for manure It cannot be uti11zed for tobacco at a.ll. While we have not made much of this elMs of goods, and do not care to, there are a groot many manufacturers who are not represented here who will not consiier them selves at a.1I bound by the action of tb1s meetmg, and they will JUSt flood the country With these goods, and will actually damage every one here to day in that line of bus10ess. But there is a. hnut to all thmgs, gentlemen, and a limit there is to fixing mmimum prices; and when we make a hm1t to fine-cut goods, it IS reasonable to suppose that fine cut goods are a h1gh pnced lnxury. Now, I am sn:nply m favor of this fine cut guagmg, and I would guage it as high 1113 fifty cents If any one else wanted to, but when It comes to sn1oking tobacco, I can say that 1t lS gomg to mn.ke a great deal of trouble. There IS a IDmimum 1f 24 cents IS too high and too low. I move, then, that we make it 21 cents. Make 1t stem, leaf or anythmg else--the best expert in world cannot tell what It is made of.
