BUILDING IX VANCOUVER.
Several New Business Stracrares
All Have Been Rente Already.
VANCOUVER, Wash.. May 2-i There
Is considerable activity In building opera
tions In this city at present. Four new
stores are being erected on Main street
and another has been moved from a re
mote part of the business district to the
vacant space on Mrs. McHale's lot on
Main street, adjoining the Masonic build
ing. All of the new buildings have been
rented, and will be occupied as soon a
completed. One very noticeable feature
Is that the new building operations are
confined to the upper portion of Main
street, between Sixth and E-ghth etreeui,
and several of those tvho will become tear
ants of the new buildings, which are all
frame or Iron-clad frame structures, are
now occupying stores in brick buildings
further down town. The exodus of busi
ness towards up-town stores, while It will
not be extensive. Is still sufficient to
cause some alarm to owners of brick build
ings in the lower part of town. The City
Council is being severely criticised by per
sons owning brick buildings for their ac
tion in permitting these frame structures
to be erected within the bounds of the
established flre limits. They contend that
it Is not fair to those who In former days,
when the ordinance establishing fire lim
its was being strictly enforced, were com
pelled to build brick buildings or allow
their property to remain idle. The erec
tion of these frame buildings has caused a
considerable Increase In insurance rates
In that part of the business district.
The "Vancouver Milling Company, which
some time ago leased a part of the new
building on the corner of Fourth and
West B streets for a flouring mill, has

Monday afternoon In the Interests of the
Regular Peoples party. The speakers will
be Hon. J. B. Osburn, of Alabama, and
Hon. M. H. Howard, of Georgia. The
meeting will be held in Marlon Square.
It Is a matter of frequent comment that
the Populists are not very enthusiastic in
the present campaign In Marlon County.
They are not at all satisfied with the way
some of the Democratic candidates fo."
county offices" were forced upon them, and
they have not forgiven their own legisla
tive candidate, John A. Jeffrey, for de
serting them and taking the nomination
for District Attorney- Today is the last
Saturday but one before election. Two
years ago this time the streets were
crowded every Saturday with Populists
talking in faor of the fusion ticket Not
a word of Popullstlc sentiment Is heard
on the streets today. Four years ago the
streets were filled with curbstone orators,
who voiced the calamity howl for hours
at a time. There has not been a slnglo
street campaign speech In Salem this year.
These changes Indicate a change in the
policy, if not In the principles of Populists.
They have been absorbed by the Demo
cratic party, but they have not become so
closely united with that party as to be
enthusiastic for its success.

army of freight team? drawn up on each
side of the building, awaiting their turn
to load freight for their respective towns.
From a dozen to IS teams, with a capacity
of about 20,000 pounds each, is no unusual
sight to see at the warehouse. The man
ager says that for the past two weeks
there was not an hour in the day when a
team was not lined up in front of the

freight were lined up to be unloaded. To
accommodate the contents of these cars
a temporary second story is being erected,
where the overplus freight will be stored.
There is .not a house in Eastern Oregon,
according to the statement of the mana

amount of business in the same length of
time that has been done by this ware

freight today was a carload of condensed
cream, consigned for distribution among
the various mining camps.
The wool season, is now at hand, and
consignments of this article are daily ar

a place to store It. However, the owners
say that they will build an extension to
the warehouse as soon as possible.

A RELIABLEJP1LE CURE.
The Pyramid Pile Cure Is the safest and
surest pile cure on the market, because It
contains no mineral poisons nor opium
nor cocaine, but can be used with absolute
eafety and certainty of cure.
Many physicians are now using the Py
ramid Pile Cure In place of surgical op
erations, being painless, convenient to
use, and the patient can attend to his
daily occupation while the cure la being
made, as it is used at night, and no ad
ditional treatment Is necessary.
Dr. "Wharton says the Pyramid Pile Cure
will prove a blessing to mankind, when
It Is remembered that heretofore a sur
gical operation was considered the only
cure with all Its danger to life, intense
pain and an expense of from $10 to $103,
to say nothing of the possible return of
the trotfble. The Pyramid Pile Cure costs
but SO cents at any drug store, and doe
the work quickly and safely.
