WASHINGTON, D. C, Sept
19. Announcement of the names
of 35 men and three women who
have accepted President Hard
ing's invitation, to participate in
a national unemployment confer
ence here beginning next Mon
day was made tonight by Secre
tary Hoover. Other names will
be announced later, he said, when
all replies are received.
The list includes Secretaries
Hoover and Davis, Julius Barnes
of Duluth, Samuel Gompers,
..Charles M. Schwab, and John L.
Lewis of the Mine workers'
union.
The women are Ida M. Tarbell .
of New York, Mary Van Cleeck
of New York, connected with the
Russell Sage Foundation, and
Elizabeth Christman of Chicago,
an officer of the National Wo
man's Trade Union League.
Mr. Hoover has been appointed
chairman of the conference which
it was said, would at once dis
solve itself into special commit
tees for the formulation of plans.
These committees, he asserted,
would no doubt seek co-operation
from other representatives of
labor, employers and civic bodies.

NEW YORK, Sept. 19. The cot
ton market today recovered from the
decline of last week. Offerings were
much smaller and reports that hold
ings of spot cotton in the south had
shown a tendency to withdraw their
offerings on the decline, seemed to
revive confidence in values on the
basis of small crop figures. The
price of January contracts advanced
to 19.80 or $7 per bale above the
closing quotation of Saturday.
Is Business Dull? Not
for Journal-Miner
Advertisers
Oscar W. Bruchman, local
clothier, did $752 worth of busi
ness yesterday and Saturday, of
which amount $500 was taken
in on .new fall suits for men
and young men. 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

BOOZE TARIFF OF GALDER ILL
BE SNAGS: ROPE SPEED? 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

Melvin W (Bugs) Burnett, who
for - the past week has been the ob

country near Congress Junction by
men from the sheriff's office here, for
the shooting and killing of Jim
Brown at Congress Junction, will be
caught if the efforts of the county
are successful.
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.
