i It is a medicinal preparation, and, at
the same time, an elegant and cleanly toilet
article. Its action upon the scalp is health
ful. It nourishes the glands which support
the hair, and causes thin, dry hair to be
come thick, soft, and vigorous. It restores
tho color of youth to locks which have
become faded with age or disease; and
relieves and cures Itching, caused by
humors of the scalp. Dr. George Gray,
Nashua, N. n., writes: "It gives me
pleasure to testify to the wonderful effects
produced by Hall's Vegetable Sicilian Ilair
Iteucwer, as observed by me in very many
cases. It will certainty kestohe

the hair soft, glossy, and beautiful." F. T.
Sandheiu, 1010 Spruce st., Philadelphia,

"4 n number of preparations to prevent my
- hair from failing out, and, realizing that I

Out of Five Hundred Houses Onl
a Half Dozen Remain A Large
Loss of LireTen Bodies Recov
ered. Westminster, B. C, June 15. The
city of Vancouver, situated at the Pa
ciflc end of the Canadian Pacific rail
way, ia ia asbes, nut half a dozen
houses remain out of five hundred,
and the worst of all there is a large
loss of life. Ten bodies have thus far
been recovered, and a number of per
sons are missing, and are supposed to
have perished. One short hour did ttt
whole work. The property saved is
insignificant. A clean sweet describes
the situation. A thousand men
are at work cleaning up the
debris for the railroad company.
Twenty contracts for rebuilding have
been already let. Many men lost their
all, but are determined to start in
again. The property lost falls directly
on the Pioneer tleraent of the city.
Hundreds of people are camped out.
There are meagre facilities for relief of
sufferers, but people of this city are es
pecially open-handed in their efforts to
relieve the destitute. Prompt aid
from the Canadian IV.citic railroad is
expected. Families were compelled to
abandon their homes fat a moment's
warning and flee for their lives. Busi
ness men in search of valuables were
forced to rush through tkmes and
smoke or perish. A number of per
sons sought refuge in the waler.and one
man was found in a well where he had
lowered himself to escape the Humes,
Few of the people have more than
the clothes they stand in. Of tie ten
bodies recovered, three have been
identified. Most of the burned frame
bui.dings will be replacrd with brick
structures. Contracts for a large
hotel and other extensive buildings
representing a half million dollars were
let just before the fire.
Poktland, 0., June 15. The Ore
gonian's Victoria, 1). C, Bpecial says:
'All day Sunday there bad been a
steady wind from the Northwest and
the brush cleaihg fires on the Cana
dian Pacific railroad lots were fanned
to such an extent as to fill the Terri
torial town of Vancouver with smoke.
Nobody, however, had any idea of dan
ger. Shortly after one p.m. several
persons began to consider the situation
threatening, but the smoke was so
dense they found it impossible to di
rect their steps to the exact locition of
its souic;. Soon a stable near the !
Colonial hotel was seen to be on fire.
An alarm was given, but so skepticil
were the people that they p-.ml no at
tention for some time. The wind by this
time had increased until it had
fanned the stable into a mass
of raging fire. Of the fust
buildings to go wasMcCarthey's drug
store, followed by the office of the
Vancouver News. The fUmes shot
across Abbott street with astonishing
rapidity, and almost before the people
could realize it, the w hole of the west
ern portion of the city was in a blaze.
The excitement was now intense.
Water street was filled with dense
smoke and flying cinders, and people
were hurrying, with what effects they
coaild gather in thtir haste, tD a place
of safety, the general direction of the
flight being east, though many run
to"the elevated ground owned by the
Canadian Pacific railroad company.
Others again made for False creek.
Those who endeavored to save their
goods were so wrapped in their object
as to appear heeuless of the danger
tiey ran, and it was found especially
necessary to compel women to relin
quish their efforts to save their lives.
In some cases there was only just time
to place them, on unprovised ralti,
which were pushed out Irom the shore
beyond the reaca of the flames, which
literally seemed to fill the air.
In 1-ss time than it takes to de;cribe
it the fire bid reached Carroll street
Some merchants in this vicinity
and in Ferguson block en
gaged in conveying their goods
to a place of safety, but so rapid
was the conflagration that before their
horses were ready the teamsters tbem
selvts were obliged to fly for their
lives. All hope of saving any con
siderable amount of property was now
abandoned and each contented himself
with hastily putting together what he
could carry in his bads, without seri
ously impeding bis speed, and hurried
from the spot, but even after leaving
the houses the danger was not over,
for every road had become an avenue
offcfire, the falling timbeis and stumps
on each side of the road glowing with
with fire and proving as serious a
menace to the fugitives as the burn
ing houses of the doomed city.
During the confusion which pre
va led, when rowdies and roughs saw
fiat every one was leaving, they enter
ed the saloons, which had been left en
tirely unprotected, and commenced
drinking. Many a one was seen stag
gering along the streets with a keg of
beer on his shoulder, or carrying as
many bottles of liquor as he could ap
propriate. Men wtre seen sitting com
pletely hemmed ia by the fire and ap
parently oblivious of their surround
ings, drinking liquor. They were, of
course, then already partially intoxi
cated. A large number of the fugi
tives collected at the Hastings mill,
company's wharf, but a lirge majority
collected at False creek bridge.
Nothing was to be seen from (ither of
these plscds but a lurid rolling bank
of smoke hanging over the ashes of the
city, from which stragglers coullbe
seen occasionally fleeing.
The steamer Dunsmur was at the
wharf to receive people, and with
several other steamers conveyed a
large number to Moodville. The drop
ping of the flames was as sudden as
ihiir rise, and by 6 p.m. some ad
venturous spirits bad already made
their way nlong the roads of the
destroyed city, and before dark the
work of searching for the bodies of
those overtaken by the fiery element
had begun. In a short liooe the in
cinerated remains of several persons
had been discovered. Upto 10 o'dock
Monday morning nine bodies, some tf
which were burned beyond recogni
tion, had been found. There is some
uncertainty about the exact number
already found, as in some cises a hand
ful of charred bones were the only in
dication of a human life being lost.
One of the searchers thought the
number could be truthfully estimated
at twelve. The general sentiment of
the people seems to be one of hopeful
ness and determination to at once begin
the reconstruction of the city; some
have already got building material on
the grounds.

Labor Agents.
Vickshurg like all other cities has a
class of what are known as enterpris
ing citizens, and the most enterprising
of these enterprising citizens seems to
have been the "intelligence" agents, or
labor agents as they are now
designated. These individual have
became such prominent factors in our
city that the city authorities have
decided to tax them in order to increase
the revenues of the city, and it li a
matter of history that since the passage
of thi3 ordinance there has been
considerable chicanery introduced
to give the operatives relief from
the tax. To enumerate their various
schemes would require a full chapter,
but it is sufficient to state that a num
ber of them have passed into the hands
of the law and they will in the future
be required to come up to the "cap
tain's desk" and settle before securing
lumber, or pay a heavy penalty. Ben
Holland, John Tipton and Beveily
Johnson, three colored agents, were
arraigned before Mayor Powell yester
day for doing business without li
cence. Two of them had intended to get
out license before doing business and
the other had forgotten it, but all
were allowed an opportunity to im
prove the matter by taking out a li
cense of $25 each, or pay a fine of

Piles are frequently proceeded by a
sense of weight in tho back, loins and
lower part of the abdomen, causing
the patient to suppose he has some af
fection of the kidneys or neighboring
organs. At times, symptoms of
indgestion are present, as flatulency,
uneasiness of the stomach, etc. A
moisture, like perspiration, producing
a very disagreeable itching, after get
ting warm, is a very common atten
dant. Blind, Bleeding and Itching

Walker to Oppose Mr. Gladstone.
London, June 16. The Conserva

Irish party is due to Mr. Gladstone's
concessions. If we must have home
rule let it be applied to the whole
kingdom on the Chamberlain princi
