RISE IN MEAT PRICKS
ONLY OFSHOItT DURATION
Dealers Say They Will Not Increase
Although prices and opinions of butchers
throughout the city differ widely ns to
the present gelicinl high price of meat,
the majority nay that tho consumer has
no cause to worry, for the reason that
the high price of wholesale meat, which
causes the high retail rate, is only a
temporary fluctuation, and will bo down
to normal in a short time.
Housewives in West Philadelphia were
alarmed nt the lise of lamb nnd polk.
Lamb lose from 2G to 27 and 2S cents n
pound, while pork climbed from 17 and
IS cents to 22 nnd 23 cents a pound within
tuo weeks. In the northern section of
thr city the same prices were found, with
South Philadelphia prices n little cheaper.
At the Reading Terminal Market re
tail butchers leported a rise In whole
sale meats ftom two to' four cents it
pound on lamb nnd pork, but said that
It would only lie temporary, and that they
would not raise their retnll prices, with

HARRY TUCKER, SHOT
BY GUNMAN, FOLLOWS
COMRADE TO GRAVE
Detective, Fatally Wounded

pires After Heroic Fight
for Life Dying, He
Lives Over Tragedy.
Detective Harrv Tucker died today at
tho Episcopal Hospital. He had been
hovering between life and death since
March 25, when Jacob, alias "Doggie"
Miller, a 21-year-old desperado, fatally
wounded him and murdered Detective
James Manccly. The young gunman and
former sailor now will be tried on a
charge of double murder.
With the exception of a nurse. Tucker,
whose death makes seven children
fatherless, was alone when he breathed
his last Hl3 wife saw him alive for tho
last time nt 0 o'clock last night. At that
time tho wounded detectlvo was delirious
and Mrs. Tucker was urged to return to
her homo at 5741 Woodland avenue. Sho
left her husband's bedside reluctantly.
Shortly before daylight this morning
Tucker had a sinking spell. Powerful
restoratives failed to arouse him. For a
short time he lived over again In memory
tho Incidents leadtng up to the shooting.
Onco or twice ho mentioned the name of
the brother officer who gave his life In a
futile attempt to save him. At 6 o'clock
hl3 family was notified that It would bo
useless to try to reach his cot In time to
see him again. He breathed his last at
five minutes after 6 o'clock.
FUNERAL PLANS MAY FAIL.
Although the police are making arrange
ments to give the dead detectlvo a
funeral with the same high honora ac
corded Detective Maneely, this may be
prevented owing to the fact that Tuckers
death Is believed to have, been due to
bacteriological diphtheria which rosultel
from tho bullet In his spine. Dr. L. II.
Mutchler. who had the detectlvo under
his personal care while he was making
his brave fight to live, will have a con
sultation today with Coroner's Physician
Wnrlsworth and Chief Medical Inspector
Cairns. This will be held, to dccldo
whether It will be possible for Tucker to
have a public funeral.
