FRED PUGHS OWN BOAST IS ALONE ENOUGH TO DEFEAT HOT
Citizens generally have been pretty well convinced dur
ing the present campaign that Prosecuting Attorney Fred
Pugh should not be re-elected. But if anything was need
ed to strengthen that belief, the prosecutor himself fur
nished material for it this week, when he boastingly as
serted that his office had secured somewhere between 200
and 300 convictions, and it was desperately, hungrily, on
the trail of more of 'em. And so hurrah for Fred Pugh
and his convictions of men shipped to Walla Walla and
heaven only knows what other pitiful pits of human
misery and degradation! Also wow! whoopee! and a few
other exclamations of county ring exhilaration.

grand jury room today.
Coroner Calvin Hartwetl was a
witness.
Deputy District Attorney Mac-
Comas will examine witnesses for
the district attorney's office. When
he was asked today whether Karl
Rogers will appear before the jury
as a prosecutor he exploded:
"No, he will not. He will be one
of the witnesses."
ing the total population figures on
the established basis of two and
one-half persons to each name in
the directory, the population of San
Francisco Is estimated at 460,000,
The directory people say, however,
that In San Francisco two and
three eighths would probably be
the proper multiple. This would
indicate thut San Francisco's popu

crease of close to 100.000 since the
federal census of l!»00 was taken.
By this boast of the number of convictions, Fred Pugh
brands himself as ignorant of the true meaning of Amer
ican law and justice, and admits himself unworthy of
holding the responsible office of public prosecutor.
The American people do not want persecutors in prose
cutors' offices. They do not want men whose greatest
ambition seems to be to prove the defendant, trembling
before the law, guilty, to brand and disgrace him forever,
and send him to those colleges of crime, the prisons,..
The American people want prosecutors who will prop

MILLION-DOLLAR FIRE
AT VICTORIA LAST NIGHT
(By United Press Leased Wire)
VICTORIA, B. C, Oct. 2.—Victor
ians slept late this morning. A mil
lion dollar fire is something new
for this city. One entire block,
located in the very heart of the city,
with the exxception of the Times
building and three or four small
shacks on one end of the block, is a
mass of ruins. To describe it more
accurately, the block resembles a
large stadium in course of erection
with only the outer wails com
pleted.
The escape of the Times building
is remarkable, when it is consid
ered that it is entirely surrounded
by Spencer's department store and
the buildings adjoining it on each
side and behind were completely
wiped out.
The Drlard hotel, once the pride
of Victoria, opposite the Times
building on Broad street, was badly
scorched and for two hours it was
a question whether It would go or
not.
