On Saturday $415 worth of business was done, and yesterday the store took in $337. Why? Because of the pulling power of Journal-Miner adver tising, Bruchman said yesterday. "The results for these two days in my store," Bruchman said, "show what newspaper advertising in the Journal-Miner will do." Results. That's what the ad vertisre wants. And that's ex actly what he gets when he buys advertising space in the Journal-Miner. Circulation plus service brings results when it's Journal-Miner circulation.

Below the dam is a small colony very comfortably established in tent houses. Everything is com plete, even to a pen with six pigs and an old-fashioned cistern where the butter is kept cool by evapora tion. A job of scraper work has put the roads into the damsite from both the Williamson valley and Ash Fork roads in good shape. In fact these roads are. better than the main travel- ed highways, for the rains did things to the Ash Fork road that the county has not 'had time yet to repair.

ACTION (Associated Press Night Wiroi WASHINGTON. D. C, Sept. 19. The tax revision bill will be sent to the president by late in -October, Chairman Penrose predicted today in announcing that the senate finance committee had formally approved the house measure as amended. Neither the Smoot manufacturers' sales tax nor the Calder proposal to impose a tax of $6.40 a gallon on all alcoholic liquors withdrawn from bend for other than manufacturing purposes will be included in the measure as it will be presented to the senate Wednesday. The authors have given notice, however, that they expect to present these amendments in the senate. Senator Penrose said that it was planned to take the bill up immed iately and ask for final action. H'c added that some features, particular ly the excess profits tax repeal and the proposed reduction of the maxi mum income surtax . to 32 per cent, would be opposed "from certain quarters" but there seemed to be a desire to expedite passage. What It Will Bring While treasury experts have yet to complete their final estimates as to the total revenue that probably will be realized this year under the meas ure, it was stated that the amount would not be less than $3,200,000,000.' the minimum which Secretary Mellon informed the committee would be; necessary, ror the next fiscal yearj it is estimated, roughly the return would be around $2,700,000,000. Two More Changes Before finally approving the bill, the committee voted two additional changes. Under one, amusement admission charges not . exceeding 10 cents 'would be exempt from the one cent tax proposed by the present law. Under the other, hotels would pay a tax of 10 per cent on the amounts charged to transients for rooms if the sum exceeds $5 for one person and $8 for two persons. EARLY COPPER PRODUCTION !S BUT TALK, SAYS W. F. Staunton, Official of Ver de Central, Believes Talk of Early Resumption Premature Under Present Conditions. Any talk of the early resumption of copper production is rather pre mature at this time, according to W. F. Staunton, Los Angeles min ing engineer and financier, who is interested iit the Verde Central mine adjoining Jerome. Reports received here Saturday . to the effect that a large purchase of American copper by Germany had about depleted the American reserve stocks of the yel low metal are without proper foun dation, Staunton believes. While he was not prepared to give any definite estimate of the size of the American copper surplus, for the simple reason that no one knows what it is, he be lieved it" to be in the neighborhood of eight or nine hundred million pounds. Under the present conditions, any attempt to produce copper at a mar ket price of 12 cents would result in ANJ) 22 ARIZONA WEATHER (Furnished by the United States Weather Bureau and the Associated Press.) - Tuesday and Wednesday General ly fair.

A reward of $250 for the capture of Burnett was authorized yesterday by the board of supervisors, and notices offering the reward and con taining a description of Burnett will ibe scattered over the country be- 'jWeen here and Mexico. Efforts of the sheriff's men have thus far proved fruitless. It is believed that Burnett is in hiding in the hills, awaiting his chance to dash across the border. DEFENDANT AT WAGE SUIT APPEALS CASE Whether N. A. Hall, defendant in a suit to collect auegea unpaid wages, owes H. B. Moisa the sum of $154.52, will be determined in the su perior court here, following appeal from two decisions in the justice court at Clarkdale, favoring the plain tiff. Hall yesterday, through his at torney. H. M. Gibbes, filed the ap peal in the superior court. Justice D. L. Robinson twice heard the case at Clarkdale. giving judgment in full amount in favor of the complainant on August 16. Moisa in his complaint alleges that Hall employed him to work on his. Hall's ranch, about January 1 last, at a monthly wage of $yo. and that the defendant refused to pay accrued wages due him. and still so refuses. He asks for judgment in the full amount in addition to attorney's fees. Moisa is represented by J. H. Rutherford of Jerome. a lowering ot prices, tor consumers would simply withdraw from the market and allow another surplus to accumulate. A parallel to the copper situation was lound by Staunton in the changed conditions of the cotton market. Estimated underproduction in the south has caused cotton quo tations to rise approximately seven cents during the past week, with the result that the market is stimulated, and such cotton as is grown can be sold at a reasonably profitable figure. When a similar condition obtains in the copper market, he said, it will be time enough to talk of the resump tion of production.
