The tobacco market opened here at the Planter’s House yesterday morning with about 500,000 pounds on the floor.  After a few sales were made the sale was closed on account of objection to the price wee was bringing.  A protest was made by the several hundred farmers on hand. Speeches were made and a mass meeting was called at the courthouse at one o’clock.  Average price was $14, last year $16.  When it became known that the warehouse was not to blame and was willing to stop the sale, a better feeling was noticed.
