Westminster, B. C., June 15.—Par
lies arriving from Vancouver state
that at 2:30 yesterday afternoon the
wind rose to a gale and caused fires
which were burning on the Canadian
Pacific railway reserve to spread
toward the city. The house on the
extreme Avest end caught fire, and the
Hames spread' rapidly to the adjacent
buildings. At 4 o’clock the last house
in the town was in ashes. Harring’s
saw mill and the Royal City Planing
Mill, being situated on points of land
outside the town, were saved. Five
persons are reported dead, and sever
al others to have been seriously,
if not fatally injured. The firm of J. M.
Outer & Co. loses $5,000, on which
there is an insurance of $2,000. The
total loss is estimated at $1,000,000,
and the insurance at SIO,OOO. One
thousand persons are homeless. It is
impossible to obtain further parti
culars at present, on account of the
wires being down.
ONLY THE WORK OF AN HOUR.
One short hour did the whole work.
The property saved is insignificant. A
“clean sweep” defines the situation.
A thousand men are at work clearing
up the debris for the railroad com
pany. Twenty contracts for rebuild
ing have already been l't. Many men
lost their all, but are determined to
start in again. The property loss
falls directly on the pioneer element
of the new city. Hundreds of people
are camped out. There are meagre
facilities for the relief of the sufferers,
but the people of this city are es
pecially open-handed in their efforts
to relieve the distress. Prompt aid
from the Canadian Pacific Railroad is
SCENES AT THE BURNING .
Families were compelled to aban
don their homes at a moment’s warn
ing and flee for their lives. Business
men, in search of valuables, were
forced to rush through the flames and
smoke or perish. The whole populace
were panic stricken. A number of
persons sought refuge in water. One
man was found in a well, where he
had lowered himself to escape the
flames. Few of the people have
more than the clothes they stand in.
Os ten bodies recovered only three
have been identified. Most of the
burned building will be replaced
with brick structures. Contracts for
a large hotel and other extensive
buildings, representing half a million
dollars, were let just before the
HOW THE FIRE ORIGINATED,
All day Sunday there had been a
steady wind from the northwest and
brush-clearing fires on the Canadian
Pacific Railroad lots were fanned to
such an extent as to fill the terminal
town of Vancouver with smoke. No
body had any idea of danger. Shortly
after one p. in. several persons began
to consider the situation threatening,
but the smoke wns so dense that they
found it impossible to direct their
steps to the exact location of its
source. Soon a stable near the
Colonial Hotel was seen to be on fire.
An alarm was given, but so skeptical
were ths people that they paid no
attention for some time. The wind
by this time had increased to a gale
and fanned the flames to a mass of

Augusta Chronicle: It will be n
great day for Democracy when the
party of the people and the defenders
of the constitution go before the
country on oleomargarine. The re
forms of the tariff of public expense,
of civil service, of an honest adminis
tration must go down. These are
but idle matters, for the high toned
and toploftical class; but the people,
that great middle mass, the gristle
and gizzard of this broad land, are
down on oleomargarine and the rights
of the great American cow must be
What is oleomargarine to us that
we must respect it ? What do we
know about oleomargarine, anyhow ?
Isn’t it enough to hear that.it is made
out of cats and snails and puppy dog
tails? Suppose we don’t even know
how to pronounce it! Don’t every
body know that oleomargarine in
summer time can’t preserve the hard
“g”? Down with it “g,” hard or
soft. The people’s Congress has
spoken and the sovereign will must
But do not let the reform stop
here. There is another article that
must go. We refer of course to Jersey
butter. It is a monopoly for the
rich—an insult to the poor man and
his cow. Everybody knows the
Jersey cow is a British innovation.
It is a menace to an established
American institution. Jersey butter
ought to be taxed out of existence.
It ought to be colored green, bul
letined and boycotted. It is the
idien product of the sleek, over-fed
autocrats of the foreign meadow.
What is to become of the old familiar
matted tail, crumpled horn of the
American prairie and back street?
Down with the Jersey and its British
butter. Let the old grazer of the
American commons be preserved and
protected by national law!

Sparta, Ga., Sept, 22,1885.- To the
Constitution, Atlanta, —Were I to
pratice deception in a case like this, 1
would think that my heart had be
come seared beyond recognition.
To be guilty of bearing false testi
mony, thereby imperilling the lives of
my fellow-men, would place me
beneath the dignity of a gentleman.
The facts which I disclose are en
dorsed and vouchtd for by the com
munity in which I live, and I trust
they mai avert the influence intend
For twenty long years I have
suffered untold tortures from a terri
ble pain ami weakness in the small of
my back, which resisted all modesand
manner of treatment.
For a long time the horrifying
pangs of an eating cancer of my
lower lip has added to my misery and
suffering. This encroaching, burning
and painful sore on my lip was pro
nounced Epithelial Cancer by the
prominent physicians in this section,
which stubbornly resisted the best
medical talent. About eighteen
months ago a cutting, piercing pain
located in my breast, which could not
be allayed by the ust of ordinary
inodes of treatment.
These sufferings of misery and
prostrations became so great that, on
the 18th of last J uly, a leading physi
cian said that I could not live longer
than four days, and 1 had about given
up in despair. The burning and ex
cruciating ravages of the cancer, the
painful condition of my back and
breast, and the rapid prostration of
my whole system combined to make
me a mere wreck of former manhood.
While thus seemingly suspended
on a thread between lite and death, I
commenced the use of B. B. 8., the
grandest blood medicine, to me and
my household, ev r used.
The effec.t was wonderful—it was
magical. The excruciating pains
which had tormented me by day and
by night for twenty years were soon
held in abeyance, and peace and
comfort were restore I to a suffering
man, the cancer commenced healing,
strength was imparted to my feeble
frame, and when eight bottles had
been used I was one of the happiest of
men, and felt about as well as I ever
All pain had vanished, the cancer
on my lip healed, and I was pronounc

effective, speedy and cheap blood
