PAGE SIXTEEN THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 1, 1920 IW M GREI GO UP ANOTHER NOTCH PRICE Advance Is Made in Effort To Save the Dairy Indus try, Members of Local Milk Dealers Association State NEW MILK AND CREAM PRICES Milk, per pint 10c Milk, per quart ....17'2C Cream, half pint.- 25c Milk to stores quarts, per gallon .60c Raising: the price of milk and cream was the most important step taken yesterday by the Phoenix Milk Deal ers' association in their first meeting: at the new headquarters at 425 South Central avenue. In announcing: this increase in milk nd cream, H. G. Malone of the ar ociation declared the raise in price was Inrperative. He pointed to the rontinued reduction of dairy herds in the valley as becoming alarming: and that a raise in price was necessary to save the remaining herds to the valley. Dairy cattle, he declared, had dwindled in this valley from more than 10,000 in 1917 to less than 6,000 at the present time and with buyers from outside states continually buying and shipping out the prime producers. The continued growth of the Phoenix Milk Dealers association has for some time placed It in need of permanent quarters. Recently the members voted to establish an office and bottle ex change and to employ an assistant Fecretary to Georg Eliot Miller, the present secretary and treasurer. As toon as arrangements can be made the members will purchase all their dairy supplies through the association. Joe "Windsor made a plea to the as sociation yesterday to take steps to save the dairy industry here from ruin and collapse, declaring his loppes had increased to the point of breaking. Hay To $50? Many of the dairymen who buy their hay and other foodstuffs predicted that hay. will go to $o0 per ton before the comln; winter is ended and that cot ton seod meal will reach the $100 mark. It was declared bv members of the association that a survey of milk mar kets In other cities shows that the Phoenix: market to be among the low est in pFice. Two members of the association yes terday held out against the increase in price of milk and cream. While they agreed there should be a raise, they thought it Fhould be made in the fall, believing that a curtailment of consumption by the public, caused by a raise in price, m!??ht possibly leave some of the dairymen with a surplus of milk on hand, r.ut when it was pointed out that the local demand was not at present being cared for, they were overwhelmed with the vote of the majority. It was stated by President Geare that all customers holding books at the old price would be served until their books have been used up. o PUT big no Oil PETEISOililEie One thousand dollars reward has been offered by the state for informa tion leading to the capture of the murderer of G. J. Peterson, a prospec tor of Cochise county, who was slain in his mountain cabin, presumably for money, early in April. The announce ment that a reward would be offered was made at the governor's office yesterday, when it was stated that on his return from Springerville Gover nor Campbell would issue a formal proclamation to that effect. J. D. Milton, a life long friend of the murdered man, has offered a $500 reward, while the sheriff of Cochise county has added $250 to the sum which will go to the man who solves the murder mystery. Mr. Peterson mined in the state for many years. Early in the spring he was found dead in his cabin and al though officers have worked for months on the case they have found no trace of the murderer and only guess that robbery was the motive for the crime.

Well Known Citizen Strick en in Wyoming on W ay to Yellowstone Park Came Here in Sixties Jake Miller, one of the best known citizens of Arizona and one of the earliest pioneers, died suddenly yester day morning at Cody, Wyo., where he had arrived the night before. lie was on his way to Yellowstone park on his vacation and expected to go into the park yesterday, lie arose early yes terday morning and immediately com plained of feeling ill. In a minute he was dead. The cause of death was heart failure. s Mr. Miller and his youngest son left Phoenix about two weeks ago, overland for the Yellowstone by the way of Al buquerque and Denver. Edward Eisele, his life-long friend, received a letter from him yesterday, dated at Cheyenne on Juno 25. He was then in good health and looking forward to an en joyable trip. Mr. Miller was years of age. He came west from Philadelphia and first went to Montana, where for a short time he was engaged in the cattle busi ness. He came to Arizona in the late 60s and continued in that business and also took up ranching near Phoenix. His cattle ranges were in the Brad shaws and the White mountains. Some years ago Mr. Miller had amassed a competence and retired from active life, though he retained lis po sition as director of the National Bank of Arizona, which he had long occupied. He also retained his interest in the cattle growing industry though he de voted less personal attention to it. A year ago he made a trip to Alaska. Mrs. Miller died two years ago. His family consists of two sons and two daughters, all residents of Phoenix. News of the death of Jake Miller will be received throughout the state with great regret, for if there was ever a good citizen, Jake Miller was one. HEIRS lMP ESTATE PAY 9.000 ENTIRE TJX The largest amount in inheritance tax collected from a single estate in Arizona was in the amount of $9,295.60 which was collected yesterday by H. S. Ross, state treasurer, from the Austin Byron Dunlap estate. The check was paid by the Phoenix Saving's Bank and Trust company for the heirs to the estate. In accordance with the terms of Mr. Dunlap's will, one of his daughters was left outright $300,000, while a trust fund of $200,000 was left to Miss Dunlap pro viding that she marry.

Such a slash ing of Prices was never heard of before in the histoiy of Phoenix. Hundreds took advantage last Thursday and purchased unheard of bargains We are offering still greater ones this week. L owets a on THE WORLIJ' Mill Climb JN PRACTICE during the past week a stock Essex touring car made seven runs over the famous "Rim o' the World" Hill Climb up Waterman Canyon Switchbacks in less time than its record over the same course last year when it won first place over all other cars In its class. On three out of seven of these trial runs it made better time than ANY car which has ever climbed to the summit of that course. By thus lowering the best previous record in three instances during the practice of the last week the Essex now claims the San Bernardino Hill Climb record. We have applied to the American Automobile Association for sanction to make an Official Run over the course. As soon as this sanction is obtained we will ask San Bernar dino to patrol the course and conduct an official test to establish the Essex record over this course. Every Calif ornian knows what it means, in relia bility and power, to win and hold the San Bernardino Hill Climb Record. r a i 401 West Adams St. Phoenix On rack No. one you will find Gaberdine wash skirts and printed VIle dresses, values up to $10.00 on sale Thursday afternoon between the hours of 2 and 5 at 95 On rack No. two you will find Taffeta, Georgette and Organdie dresses, values up to, $30.00 on sal Thursday afternoon between the hours of 2 and 6 at $10.00 One lot of Blouses and nainsook Teddy Bears, values up to $3.00 on sale Thursday afternoon between the hours of 2 and 5 at 95c 20 dozen of Voile and Georgette Blouses Voile values up to $3.50 and Georgette values up to $6.00.
