CRIMINAL ACTION IG

(By United Press leased Wire.)
NEW YORK, March 27. —De-
claring that 150 loft buildings lv
Manhattan alone, are In such con
dition that they might at any time
furnish a repetition of Saturday's
fire horror here, District Attor
ney Whitman today started an in
vestigation, the result of which,
It to hoped, will find a remedy for
the conditions existing.
'While some officials say that
the laxity of the law, rather than
anyone's criminal negligenoe, is
responsible for the toll of death
•xacted by the fire in the Asch
building. Whitman will ask the
(rand jury to probe the fire fully
fend if persons have been negligent
he will demand a prison term for
them. Assistant Attorney Rubin
and Bostwlck have been detailed to
probe the hoiror to the bottom.
Whitman and his assistants are
examining 50 witnesses of the hol
ocaust, including Joßeph Asch,
owner of the burned building. As
• possible explanation of th« fire's
start, it has been learned that the
employes of the Triangle company
habitually smoked cigarets and

TACOMA, WASHINGTON, MONDAY, MARCH 27,1911.
GOOD ADVICE TO
The following 1b a digest of an
article entitled "What It Costs to
Homestead," written for the Tech
nical World by Charlton Lawrence
Ed holm. H« tries to eet folk
straight as to th« pros and cons
of homesteadlng; to make it clear
to them that homest«adlng entails
some expense and a lot of hard
work, but that It Is worth while
when the homesteader has a good
start and plenty of pluck.—Editor.
lly Oharlton Lawrence Edholm.
"What does It actually cost to
homestead out here In the west?"
That was the question I propound
ed to an e-nglueer engaged in re
claiming some of the vast areaa of
desert land in the southwest.
"That is a question I always
sidestep," he said, "and i>t has been
put up to me about a thousand
times. The fact is that it all de
pends upon the man."
That Is thoroughly western, the
habit of sizing up the man raither
than "h'le pile" and estimating his
chances of success by what he Is
rather than by what he has. It Is
logical that it ahould be so, for
out her«, far from the financial
centers, it is the man who does
the work rather than his dollar.
Unfortunately, however, echoing
the virile call of the west is the se.
duotlve call of the western land
boomer, dulcet, siren strains of
easy life and effortless rewards.
Sometimes they are fairly plaus

Jail Sentences Never Saved
- Drunkards, Says Police Judge
SAN DIEGO, March 27.—Po
lice Judge Geo. W. Puterbaugh
has saved hundreds of men by
"just giving them a chance to
show what Is In them." And no
body in San Diego denies that
he has been successful.
"The Master said we must for
give our brother not only eeven
times, but seventy times seven,"
la this judge's answer to all those
who tax him with misplacing his
confidence many times.
It igrieve.B him, says Judge Pu
terbauigh, to fine an old man or a
boy. His office, he declares, is
one of sadness. Once a man who
was up for sentence, said ne
wanted to reform. Judge Puter
baugh took him to his home, fed
him, clothed him and the man
turned out bad. But the judge
said he didn't care.
"If I have only one out of every
hundred I feel I will have done
well," was his answer.
Another time Judge Puter
baugh had a man before him
charged with abusing his horse,
an ancient and faithful animal
that could ;barely hobble along.
The court sentenced. the 'horse to
pasture and then turned to the
owner. The man began to ex
plain, but the judge Interrupted
"The more you say the more
you increase your fine. I was
going to fine you $10, now It's
"Many times the attempted
kindness of reasonable leniency
has been misplaced, but this is
not necessarily discouraging,"
said Judge Puterbaugh recently.
