FIREWORKS FAKE TO

It s very probable that Mr. Fish

who was brought down from Port
land Saturday to superintend the
firework'', will receive no pay for his
services. All the members of the
Fourth of July committee are very
angry at the Portland expert, and
somo of them declared this morning
that ho ran 30 yards every time he
set off a skv rocket. The Canltal
Journal believes there should bo an j

(United Press Lease Wire.)
San Francisco, July 0. Should
Roy Batemnn, second class fireman
of tho battleship Virginia, be Identi
fied today as Guy Pre&cott, suspected
of tho murder of pretty Joslo Gray
at Evansvllle, Ind., March 10, 1907
an attempt will be made to lynch
him upon his arrival nt homo town,
If R. E. Leaf, of Santa Cruz, who
Is here to Identify the man, known
the temper of the people of that city,
Mr. Leaf wns aboard tho battleship
Connecticut, where Bnteman or Pros
cott is confined, today but refused ta
boo the suspected murderer until tho
arrival of his friend George Boehmtv
of Evansvllle, who will como hen
tonight from southern Callfornjn.
Upon his return from, tho flngshlu
today Loaf Bald he had no doubt ho
would bo able to fix the sailor's iden
tity If ho renlly was Prescott but ho
hesitated to do so before the arrival
of Bochme, who was a schoolmate of
tno HiBpeot..
' "If Batoman Is Preicott ho may as
well say his prayers,". declared Leaf.
"Tho people of EvanBvlllo nro mad'
with rage over tho murder of Miss
Gray nnd It Is doubtful whether ha
could escape lynching If he were
tnken to tho place.
"MIs Grny was one of tho most
popular young women In Evansvllle.
She wns one of tho brightest pupils I withdrawn by tho defendant's attor
hnd In my school. Tho fnct thnt bIiq "ey, Judge, this morning and a do
wns murdered to gain a paltry $300m,',rer entered. TIiIh demurrer
has aroused tho town ngnlnst Pres-
cott no nothing else could. His young
wlfo, whoso baby died about n month
after the murdor, Is pitied by every
one." Prescott was employed as porter
at the" R. & G. department store,
where MIbs Gray was bookkeeper,
when tho murdor was committed.
The store closed at 10 o'clock on Sat
urday evonlng but Miss Gray re
mained to complote her work on the
books. Her failure to reach holno at
11 o'clock nroused' tho fear that
some harm had befallen her nnd her
aged parents, who depended upon
her os their sole support, gave tho t
alarm.
The proprietor of the storo wns
notified nnd summoning the police
went to tho Btore where he discover
ed unmistnblo evidence of a crime.
The floor wns blood stained, coin
was lying loo&o upon the floor nnd
there wn overy sign of n terrible en
counter. Hearing faint groan from the
vault tho door was opened and the
girl, Jn n dying condition, wns found.
She was Just ablo to gasp "Guy, how
could you do It?" before she died,
Investigation of the cash accounts
showed thnt tho murderer had se
cured about $300 after striking
down tho girl with some heavy
Instrument.
Suspicion was at onco fastened up
on Prescott who was. found nt his
home sound asleep. He wa6 placed
under arrest but later released on
what appeared to be a satisfactory
alibi. Immediately upon his release
he disappeared and no further trace
of him was found. Lieutenant
