Rock Springs Miner no. 43 October 27, 1904
A.P. BUGAS

Republican Candidate for State Senator

Was born in Austria in 1866 and came to the United States in 1880, settling first in the anthracite coal regions of Schuylkill County, Pa. In 1885 he came to Rock Springs, where for three and one half years, he worked in No. 1 mine. Desiring to see more of our country he started west in 1888 and spent some time along the Pacific coast, from Washington to lower California, going from there to Arizona and New Mexico where he remained three years. He then went to Pittsburg, Kansas, where he worked in the mines and attended night school, under Prof. Hiett, studying whenever possible and taking great interest in the science of mining. When the correspondence school of mines was established at Scranton in 1891, he enrolled as a student and completed their course in mining. He returned to Rock Springs in 1896 where he has since resided and been in business.
