In the 1895 LA City Directory, T. A. Jones is listed as the proprietor of the Exchange Saloon. By 1896 the proprietor
is that Jerrue guy HossC mentioned.
If your Hugh McCrum is the one born in August of 1835, he appears back in San Francisco in the 1900 census. Listed with him is his wife Helen and an Adelaide Jensen, noted to be a guest at the time the census was taken on June 7, 1900. He is listed in that census as a liquor dealer.

An earlier census, taken in 1870 shows him as a liquor dealer in Virginia City, Nevada. This was a mining town and was on the downward slide by 1870, having peaked in the mid 1860's. That census notes him as a liquor dealer there as well.

The voter registrations in 1880 show him in San Francisco as a liquor dealer. That registration shows him at 301 Turk, San Francisco.
