ANNOUNCEMENT.
With this issue the management of
Thh Advance is changed,  The wri-
t< r on assuming charge knows   full
well that the task of running a newspaper, even a weekly, is nnt tin easy
one, especially in a   law-abiding district, like the Boundary Crock, neither
have we any Pittsburg explosions  or
Kansas cyclones to chronicle, true we
have Provincial   politics to tnkn their
place, which nt the  present time nre
even more unsettle:! than either of the
former, but as tbe political field is already pi'iiticully filled Tnu Advanck
will devote must of its energies to obtaining local and mining news of the
" dislrict,   It will tell you nil about one
of   the   best  located  towiiB   in   the
Province—n town which is destined to
become one of the largest cities in thc
interior.   Th- success of u newspaper
depends much upon tbe management,
but more upon the support itrecpives
from the people.   It is, therefore, the
Intention of Tun Advanciu to pursue
such a course ns will merit tile respect
and confidence of the public, believing
that the public is not slow to patronize a Hvh newspaper,    We liavenvtry
confidence in Midway becoming n large
city nnd we intend endeavoring to the
hest of our ability to help its citizens ti
place it  in   the position its natural
advantages have destined it to llll, and
consequently believe it will not lack
Iheir support,

In Ihe face of so ninny assertions in
Ihe press uud from Ihe platform to the
contrary, it is a great, relief lo have
received the most positive public assurance from Hon. Smith Curtis that
his former law partner, Bon,'Joseph
Miirtin, Premier pro torn nf British
Ciiliiniliiii, is "absolutely Incorruptible" and that "nn man can buy him."
There had bpen a little suspicion tothe
contrary, bin this should now entirely
disappear upon such disinterested tes-
limony,
Tbe Hon. I lie Premier of British
Ooiumbia, was neither politic nor tactful wlicli Insl Saturday morning he
drove tlirough .Midway without showing the residents the ordinarycouitesy
nf stopping—if only fur a few minute;
—and to exchange a word or two of
greeting wilb some of lliem. But
courtesy and Inct are nol usually re
garded as traits in the character of the
Hon. Joseph Martin, so it is not surprising that he led. ah Indifferent im
pression where he might possibly havi
done otherwise without much effort.
ion or the West Fork with Hie main
Keltic River,and the appointment of
a Deputy Mining Recorder to receive
records at lhat poinl for transmission
to the oflice of the Recorder for the
Kettle River Mining Division, will
doubtless prove a great convenience to
prospectors and olhers in the districl
north of Rock Creek, If similar provision lie made to meet Ihe requirements nf the Camp McKinney district,
by the opening of a sub-recording of.
flee at Oamp McKinney. much incon
venience and lots af time will be
obviated.
A prominent member of Ihe Greenwood Liheral Association has informed
us that we lasl. week did an injustice to
the members of thnt association in our
comments in conned ion with the striking off the roll of lhe iiames4)f.Messr ,
fl. R. Naden, D. Ross and A. M.
Whiteside, He states that Ihese gentlemen tendered their resignations as
members so tbat. there was no acceptable alternative lo removing the mimes
from the roll, which was done leluc
lant.ly. We regret I Iml lhe misleading
Information which reached us should
have induced ns tn make reflections
that it transpires were undeserved, bul
we did so in nil gond fnitb, believing
the sources of uur information thoroughly reliable.
Possibly the Hon. the Premier is
satisfied with the outlook tor bis candidate in the Boundary portion of
the Rossland Riding of West Kootenay, or be may, on the other hnnd,
realize that nil will not he plain sailing
for Hon. Smith Curtis. It was very
evident that the hig meeting held at
Oreenwood last Friday evening con
tained a strong element that was not
in sympathy with either Mr. Martin
or Mr. Curtis, Tlie reception Mr.
Duncan Ross met wilh in bis efforts to
discredit the Premier showed plainly
what way tlie land lay, and though
the Premier, being an old hand at
platform trickery, succeeded in
bluffing and in a mensmne I liming the laugh against Mr. Ross,
here were numbers present who
were more convinced by the evident
sincerity of the bitter than by the tnc-
ticts Mr, Martin employed to cast ridicule upon his adversary. Thn uieeting
was distinctly encouraging to the anti-
Martin electors, who will not relax
their efforts to aid in turning down
Mr, Martin aud his candidate.
The Hon. Smith Curtis was very
plausible in his address to thu electois
nt Midway last Saturday morning, but
bait of the kind hu used will not catel:
votes hereabouts. His contention that
the policy of the Martin Government
offers more advantages to Midway
than to nny other place iu the Province
outside the three const cities sounds
well but there is nothing in it but
sound. Docs Mr, Curtis suppose thnt
his assertions that much of the $1,000,-
000 the Martin Government intends
borrowing for the construction' of
roads, bridges and trails and of the.
$4,0(10,0011 of wages to be evpeuded on
the proposed Vancouver-Midway rail-
Way, will be spent about Midway mis
led any of his hearers:- If ¥0 he l«
ml taken for they possess nn ordinary
share of common sense, and he will
discover thnt on polling dny,
It seems to be generally known
through the Boundary country that
Midway is to bold a celebration on the
Queen's l.irthday, and now that the
other towns, recognizing the fact that
it was the usual custom nf Midway to
select lhe 24th of May for their sports,
have kindly decided not to hold a eel'
ablution on that day, each and every
loyal citizen should do all in their
power to make it a success so that
visitors from other towns will go away
feeling satisfied with the day's enjoyment, The tine; is short and no efforts should he spared or opportunities lost to secure funds for this pur
pose. The Greenwood band has been
secured, and already a number of
horsemen from a distance havo intimated their intentions of being pres
out witli their horses. It is expected
that excursion trains will be running
by that time and if so we mny expect
a large crowd representing the differ
ent towns nlotig the line. Probably
no town in the district affords as
many advantages for the holding of
sports as Midway, and il the day he
fi.,-. Ibe 21th of May will he n red-
letter duy in our town's history,
At Midway.
Hon. Smith Curtis addressed a puhlic meeting at Midway on Saturday
morning.   Taking into   account the
insufficient notice and the inconvenient
hour at wbich the meeting wus held,
there was a fair attendance.   Mr. J.
R. Ferguson was voted to the chair.
Mr. Curtis spoke for about an hour in
support of the policy of the Martin
Government.   Referring to the recent
removal of the Government office from
Midway to Greenwood, he expressed
the opinion that it was in the best
interests of the public.    He thought
that   the   electors of   Midway and
vicinity   should   not   be influenced
against the Martin Government because their own narrow interests had
suffered ; they should rather consider
whether the general policy of the Government was not the  best for the
Province as a whole,   He contended
that it offered  more advantages to
Midway than to any other place in the
Province outside of the coast cities of
Victoria, Vancouver and New Westminster,   The Government intend, if
sustained, to borrow $1,000,000 to expend in constructing toads trails and
bridges.    They will therefore   huve
plenty of money available for these
works.   No doubt three-fourths of this
money will be spent south of the C, P.
R. Company's main line, and much of
it in wages in the vicinity of Midway.
Then they intended to build a railway
from Vancouver viaNewWestminster,
Chilliwack and thn Hope Mountains to
Midway.   This will involve the expenditure of $-1,000,(100 in wages alone, It
large proportion of which would also
be  spent at  Midway,  This railway
will undoubtedly  bo  a success and
whether local electors vote    for or
against himself, the representation of
tbo Martin Oovernnient, tlie terminal
station  will be placed right in  the
town, not two or three miles out of it.
Tlie Province certainly has the power
to build n railway right to the hound*
ary line and it will encourage an Amerl
can rond to connect with it nt the line.
The C. P. R. had got a cinch on this
country but the Government propose
to break that cinch.   If sustained as
Minister of Mines he intended to make
Ids department nf more prat tical value
by more frequently sending out infor
iiintioii of the mineral resources of the
Province to mining engineers and com
panies in  the  United States, Great
Britain, France and Germany, so as to
encourage the investment of capital.
Tbe Government   would also freely
advertise the agricultural and timber
resources of the Province,    Reference
was also mode to the coal lands trans
actions   of the Semlin Government
and to the increasing influx ot  Japanese nnd Chinese into the Province.
The speaker closed with an appeal, on
the merits of the Government platform, for thc support of the electors.
After nn interchiinge of opinions lietween Mr. Hugh Murray and Mr.Curtis
regarding the removal of the Government olllce and  the prospects of a.
Government railway proving asitecess,
the meeting closed.

Sandon Swept By Fire.
Kaslo, B. O, May 5,—Sandon was
completely destroyed hy fire last night.
A great many people are homeless.
So runs lhe message just received
from Mayor Pills, dated at White-
waler. The wires have beeu burned
down in Sandon itself and the meagre
particulars go to show that the whole
gulch town is in ruins, It is believed
a forest fire started the conflagration.
During Ihe past week or so there have
i>een several large Ares iu the vicinity,
.md Sandon being situated in a gully
between two high wooded mountains
was in imminent danger. Last night
he flames must have swept over the
town and wiped it off tbe fare of tbe

lhe upper part of the town have been
saved. The loss is over $100,00,) and
the insurance is small,

of three hours, helped by the wind, the
lown wns in ruins, llolels, churches,

swept away. Thc fire spread so rapidly
thai it was impossible to save auy

The population of Sandon is about
2,000, including the miners in the
Slocan Stat and Payne, and wilb few
exceptions these people are allogethei
homeless. A waterworks wilh a ca*
