Took Them All to New York 'We went out to camp the next morning with an auto load of letters, telegrams and packages and delivered them to the boys, and found they had just gone through the de-lousing sta tion, the sixth one. they said. The hoys went one way. getting thoroughly foured and .ejamined en route, while their clothes went another, being sub jected to superheated dry steam and then laundered and pressed, after which the clothes and the man got to gether again. "1 had a lot of difficulty in getting the boys out for a good time, but they were finally allowed to go on mv per sona! guarantee that they would all show tip on time and in good shape, and the boys stood by me in it. The whole crowd of 680 Arizona men from the 340lli field artillery went to New York on a special train. At the station they met us with an enorm ous fleet of sightseeing busses and took us for a four-hour trip over New York city. We had the right of way everywhere. Motor officers rode in front, holding up traffic at all inter sections, and we saw the town. They all knew when the boys were from without any banners, for their coyote yells fairly shook up some of those artificial canyons they call streets. Have Big Night "When the ride was over they all went to the Kocky Mountain club, registered and washed up. and were then taken to the Fifth avenue hotel for dinner, a good one, with some vaudeville entertainment on the bill of fare. "Then the Kooky Jlountain club took them to the (Hobe theater to see one of Cohan's plays "The Royal Vaga bond," which the boys hugely enjoyed. Being called on for a talk I told the crowd from a box just who these men were and what they had done. We then adjourned to the Rocky Mountain club for a light lunch with some good cider, and at 1' a. m they started back to camp. "With the railroads somewhat short of equipment am, not particularly fond of sending hig trains out on long trips, we had some difficulty about getting away, but the boys finally left for Kl Paso Sunday morning. Arizona Men Scattered "Meantime, I had heard that the boys from the 314th ammunition train, which has 175 Arizona men. and the 2:ird engineers, with 90, had arrived at Camp Decerns, near Boston, and went down to see them, but they were not there and did not arrive until the ninth. They may not get home for two weeks yet. "While iu Xew York I went to visit all the base hospitals, Camps liix, Mills and Merrill, to look up the Arizbna men in them and help them out if pos sible, or at least to bring back word to their people. A lot of Arizona men are almost lost by being used for replace ments and being scattered around, and will be slow getting home. ' T then went on to Washington to loop up some matters of interest to Arizona, and left in time to arrive in Kl I'aso Saturday night, one day be hind the hoys, who had made the trip a day quicker than the ISSth did. The War Camp Community Service at El I'aso had given the boys a nice dinner and entertainment on Friday night. "The force at Fort Bliss is small and they are discharging only about 135 men a day, so it will probably be Thursday morning before all the men from the otiJt'n get home. More Ari '.onian.s from other outfits are on their way to Kl Paso now, and still more will be headed this way soon, so that it should not be long now until we have shout all our boys back again all who have not paid the great price." o VISIT 10 BROTHER HERE ENDS FATALLY A visit to his brother, Grant Millage, ended fatally for O- C. Millage of Den ver, who died from the result of an ac cident which occurred at the Millage ranch in Buckeye Saturday. Millage came here a short time ago to visit at his brother's home. While inspecting the premises he fell from a three-foot mound, sustaining injuries which resulted in his death. The body was placed in charge of Moore and McLellan and will be shipped to the decedant's home for burial.

P. M.

He further intimated that the association would not consider settlement terms with the union or representatives of that or ganization. Will Meet Employes President AVilkinson wrote that the association would gladly meet a som mittee of present employes if thev had anything to present to the association. His letter to Federal Mediator Davies follows: "Supplementing our letter of vester day, I would state that the association is always ready to treat with its em ployes. If they have something def inite to present, we will meet a com mittee composed of employes who were employed by us for at least tit) days prior to June 1 and who are still on our payroll. This committee should represent linemen and electrical op erators, of the latter, preferablv one from each of the four power plants making a total of five. "The time for the conference cannot be arranged definitely until the return of General Superintendent Elliott from Roosevelt, which will be in a dav or two." , All Quiet Elsewhere It was stated at the Water Users' building yesterday, afternoon that plans were nearing completion for the reopening of the Roosevelt plant, the only one affected by the strike, of ficials promised to have this plant again in operation within a day or so, although they would fix . no certain date for the resumptidn of activities. -no new developments were forth coming yesterday in the alleged threatened strike of electrical workers employed by the Southwest Cotton company and the Pacific fias & Elec tric company. It is stated that possib ly the demands made by the union on these two companies were merely to strengthen the cause of striking em ployes of the Water Users' association. The situation at the two Southwest Cotton company ranches in the Chand ler district was unchanged yesterday, all pumping plants working alternately because at the shortage of power.

J'.en nitt & Co., realty firm has been obliged to take temporary quarters on lEast Adams street to permit improve jments in the old location in the old j Goodrich building. The firm will ia'er ;take permanent quarters at J!l West i Adams street, in the store room mnv i occupied by the French shop. i Mr. Iienniu is the veteran real estate dealer of this district. lie has seen I Phoenix grow from a hamlet of :i.0'in to ja city of Sr,0u'; he has seen the till able acreage of the valley increase ifrom 5.000 or S.000 acres to more than 200.000 acres. He sold lands, in the J valley for almost a song; he sold what is now valuable bnsiness property in r-noenix ior a mere pittance. "It's not been so much what I've sold as what I've done to help in the upbuilding of the community." said Mr. jBennitt yesterday afternoon rcminis- cently. "One is a matter of possibly a few minutes the other a matter of months or years." Probably a total acreage greater than (hat of the cultivated area of the Salt River valley has been sold through the Bennitt realty office during its lung life. Business properties have been sold and resold, always at increasing values. Mr. Bennitt came to Phoenix with Col. William Christie in 18S2, and with Col. Christie established the First Na tional Bank of Phoenix in October, 1S8:!. In those days the. banking busi ness was not very extensive and in consequence the two founders were able to transact all the business. Mr. Bennitt was the insurance writer for the bank, practically all such business being handled by banks in those days. Later, as the bank expanded and more employes were needed, Mr. Ben nitt, severed active relations, although he wils always a member of the insti tution. It was in 1894 that he estab lished his realty office on North Cen- jtral avenue, then and now the central jpart of the city. I At that time, the plat of ground i where the court house is now situated "the brush" and was utilised bv UJEiniDCOJ QUARTER OF CENTURY! 10 IDS IN SIR SERVICE SET III FLIGHTS Taken Aloft in Plane Yes-! terday To Fly to Globe! Daring- Pilots Arrive at 'oast After Leaving Here ! Soaring and dipping over the city in their maiden flights, two fledgling members of the United States air ser vice were taken aloft for the first time yesterday in an airplane by Lieut. Wilbur Wright of Rockwell Field. San Diego. They were Jesse O. TiMietts and John A. porterie, two of the Phoe nix men who have volunteered fo;- the army aviation service during the aerial recruiting campaign here bv Caotain L- V.. Appleby. Lieutenant Wright, who arrived late Monday in his red Curtiss-Hispano plane from the field to assist in the drive for men in Arizona, made the first flight with a new member of the service at 7 o'clock last night, gave him an atrail view of the city and much of the valley. The flight was made without a hitch, and almost as soon as the plane had landed it went aloft again, this time with the other aviator-soon-to-be as a passenger. Both enjoyed their new sen-ice hugely. Lieutenant Wright's two flights were the only activities of Captain Appleby's aerial forces yesterday, though his land force, consisting of a nine-passenger camouflaged motor car that has seen general staff duty over the shell torn roads of France, made a trip, to Tempe and Mesa in the search for good men for the air service. v To Globe Today Today Lieutenant Wright will make a flight to Globe, which he visited dur ing the Liberty loan campaign while on a tour of much of the state in a big Dellaviland plane. An intensive air service recruiting campaign will be launched with his arrival, and tomor row the big staff automobile will jour ney to Globe to join the drive. The other airplane at present with Captain Appleby will be kept inactive at the state fair grounds another day or two. pending some minor repairs and re adjustments. The first news of the safe arrival Sunday of Lieut. Ira. C. Kaker' and Lieut. O. H. Quinn, two of the daring young pilots whom Captain Appleby brought to Arizona in bis aerial cam paign, at Rockwell Field after a start from here early Sunday morning was received by Captain Appleby yester day, it came in the form of a brief telegram from Lieutenant Eaker. set ting the flying time lor the trip to San Diego at a trifle over ." hours. Fliers Arrive on Coast From Here Lieutenant Faker spent all o last week iu Phoenix, making daily flights while here, including one trip to Tuc son and another to Prescott. He was called back ,to the coast to take a week's seaplane training before start ing for the Philippines, where he will be one of. the fliers of six airplane squadron who wi'l establish, the air service in our oriental possessions, sailing July ; from San Francisco. Lieutenant ljuinn returned to the field under orders from Captain Dar row. medical officer of Captain Ap pleby's squadron, to take a week's rest at Warner Hot Springs. He will re turn here later to join the recruiting campaign and to take part in the Luke air memorial tournament. Roth Lieutenant Eaker and Lieuten ant Quinn are rated among the best army fliers in the southwest, and both were kept in this country- during "the war to train less able and less experi enced aviators for overseas service. Indians as a camping grounds while visiting or trading in this communitv vhat is now the Goodrich corner was sold about that time for J:i,500. includ ing the adobe structures located there on. The. Goldman corner where the Busy Drug store is now- located was sold a. short time later for $:!3.000. Cultivated areas in the vallev were limited to the lands adjacent 'to the Maricopa, Salt, Tempe and Mesa canals and did not exceed 10,000 acres. Water rights to lands at that time were worth more than the lands them selves and exchanges or transfers were frequent at from J40 to $50 the acre. Only recently, lands in the vallev have sold as high as $:J,.")0 to $400 per acre, and in some few instances owners are asking $500 an acre for small tracts. At the death of Col. Christie, Mr. Bennitt again became actively asso ciated with the bank of which he was founder. He continued in various ca pacities at the hank until 1!14. when he again gave his undivided attention to the real estate business. All durin his years in the bajik. however, realty business continued. Durinu bis ."i veers' of hiiwinouo his Mr. Bennitt and his associates have trans formed more than 50 quarter sections of land from desert waste into tillable acreage.
