Opening Ball of the Miners' Union Attended  by Hundreds.  Youth  and   beauty   were  much in  evidence     Thursday   evening  at   the,  grand opening ball of Phoenix Miners' 1  Union No. 8, in the  new   arid   com-j  modious two-story building just   com-!  pleted by the men behind the drills in  Phoenix camp.    The dance had been  well advertised by the hustling officers  of the Union, who  spared no effort or  expense lo   make the affair an unqualified success.     And   their  endeavors  were all that might have been   anticipated.    Guests came from Greenwood,  Grand Forks and   Columbia.     It was  said in Greenwood   that every  available   rig' in    town   was   engaged   in  advance.  The spacious hall with an excellent  floor,   30x60 feet  in   size,   had been  decorated lor the occasion with  bunting  and   the  flags of all  nations.    A  neve piano   had   been  purchased  and  good music was furnished. The grand  inarch with 30 couples was led by Mr.  and Mrs. Blair, and was lhe beginning  of a most pleasant evening, the dancing  lasting until   the small   hours of j  the    morning.      Supper   was   served  on   the   lower  story of' the   building]  by Messrs.   Hawthorne <S: Brown,   01!  the   Butte    dining    rooms  and    was  done full justice to.

Nothing was left u.v  There is nothing particularly slow-  about Phoenix, and the latest proof-of  this is the tact that, although hardly  six months old, it already enjoys electric lights. /.  Last Saturday the'iGreenwood Electric Co. made a test of the electric  lighting system recently installed by  that company in Greenwood. Thursday, of this week, a test of the line running to Phoenix was .nade when the  Miners' Union hail was brilliantly  illuminated for the opening ball. In  both cases the trial was satisfactory,  and from now cm connections _.witli,,  consumers will be made as rapidly as  possible, and the current turned on.  'I'he city of Greenwood has already'  ordered six arc lights for street lighting  and it is not improbable that something  of the kind will be done in I'hoenix,at'  no distant date.

New Alalf Closiug Hours.  The hour of closing the outgoing  mails to all points has been changed  in the Phoenix post-office to 12:30  noon, which will be a greater convenience to business men generally than  heretofore. The mail will, accordingly, be sent out on the afternoon, instead  of the morning stage, catching the outgoing C. P..K. train. The Phoenix  post-office now has direct exchange of  mail sacks daily with Nelson, Rcss-  land, (.rand Porks, Columbia and  Greenwood, giving a quick and first-  class service.  Making Beer in Phoenix.  Mueller Brothers, proprietors ofthe  Phoenix Brewery, state that they  be ready to  their choice  days. They have been delayed some  what in getting their brewery started,  but'now nearly everything is completed, and they already have one or.more j  large fermenting tubs of beer made.  Messrs.

Deadwood, the latest town to seek public favor, is situated in the heart of  Deadwood Camp, about three miles from Greenwood, and an equal distance  from the B. C. Copper conipan}-'s smelter. It is reached bj' a spur of the Columbia and Western railway. It is surrounded by such famous mines as the  Mother Lode, Sunset, Buckhoru, and Morrison, which of themselves assure a  Large Payroll, but exclusive of these there are a hundred partially developed  properties surrounding the town, many of which will become paying mines, so  that it does not require very much foresight to decide that the Town of Dead-  wood will have in the near future a sufficiently large payroll to support a city  of some importance.

Fred ' Hume, minister of  Mines foi the province, has lately promulgated > a nonsensical ruling, with  res{>ect to securing certificates of improvements of mineial claims, that will,  if adhered to., work a decided hard-  ship on a large number of free miners.  More than' that, the ruling is utterly  at variance with some ofthe best legal  ,, opinions in the province.  In'brief the new orders to gold com-  y-        "    I ' ��  missioners' are__ tha,t, a .certificate > of  .improvements is not to be issued till  the" mining"recorder's books in the1  division in which the claim is situated  show that certificates ol work amounting to $500 have been duly issued and  ,,,recorded. ^In other words,' if a claim*  is staked and $500 worth of work done  is included in the new riding of South  Yale.  There seems little doubt at this  writing but that an appeal will very  shortly be made to the people, and the  Boundary will at last have a chance to  choose a member from among its nearly 1200 voters. From now on it is  more than likely that there u ill be  some fine engineering .done by a few-  Mho would like to have their names  adorned with M.P.l*. As Greenwood  is the most central point of the new  riding there is every probability that  the nominating convention will meet  there.  '  EDITORIAL COMMENTS.

For severa' 3 eai s the Boundary has  been more or less patiently waiting for  simple justice in the nay of adequate  representation in the provincial assembly. This tardy recognition is at last  at hand. Last Monday, a general redistribution was introduced at Victoiia,  which it is believed will pass with but  few changes. No additional ridings  are created, but the representation will  be more according to the population.  Vancouver Island will lose two scats,  and ot course the mainland will gain  that many.

The following is the text of the  Bsolution recently adopted hy the  tossland board of tiade:  'That respecting mineral claims located and recorded prior to the passing of the amendments to the mineral  fict in 1898:  1. Whereas tbe Hon. the minister of  lines has recently instructed the gold  |<-oinmissioiiers throughout the province  '-not to issue a certificate of improve-  ���nients for any mineral claim until the  hooks of the mining recorder of the  division in which such claim is situate  show certificates of work amounting to  $500 have been duly issued and recorded.  j. Whereas,   prior to  the  date  of  said ruling it was  customary  for  the  gold  commissioners  to   issue certifi-  : cates of improvements regardless of the  ^.number of certificates  ot work record-  fed.  ���  ��*aa*****��***************a  Eor the last week or two the Pljncer  has been advertising in these columns  for white cotton rags, and this simple  fact seems to have excited the curiosity  of a large number of people in town.  In explanation, we would say that cotton rags are extremely needful in all  up-to-date printing establishments for  the purpose of cleaning presses and  wiping machinery. They are more  desirable  even   than cotton   waste for  this purjwse.  -<_  When this explanation reaches an  expectant public the Pioneer management hopes that there will be a rush  for the rag bags and thence to this  office. The first lot received will be  paid for at the rate of 5 cents per  pound. Don't be bashful or backward about coming forward. You've  got 'cm and we want 'em.  r>.  Almost every week now there is  news of the organization of some  strong concern to operate claims in or  around Phoenix. A short time ago  the Hartford claim was so taken up.  A couple of weeks since the Grey  Eagle Co. was organized. In this  issue of the Pioneer is chronicled the  fact that the Red Rock and Bald  Eagle Cold & Copper Mining Co. has  taken up the bond on its property, and  that arrangements are now going forward for the consolidation ofthe Brandon and Golden Crown and Winnipeg companies.  It is no wonder, therefore, that the  unprejudiced observer is more and  more impressed with the fact that the  backing of Phoenix cainp is simply  marvelous, and will make this town of  as great fame as Rossiand in time.  One shrewd gentleman recently made  the .remark that if there was nothing in Phoenix there is nothing in  Greenwood, Grand Porks or the entire Boundary. Which, of course, is  precisely the fact.

Whereas the Hon. the minister of  mines has made a ruling in a letter  -iddrcssed to J.S. Clute, Jr., Rossiand,  B.C., dated 12th February, 1900, as  ioIIows: "I ain of opinion that work  done on a claim in excess of the annual  ���issessment work required, previous to  *he jwssing of section 5, Mineral Act,  1898, cannot be allowed to count at  *his late date," adding "However, it is  my intention to have this section made  i> j.lain during this session oi the legislature."  5. It is plain lhat under the rulings  ited:  (a) Work done on a mineral claim  excess of the amount required as an  tnnual assessment prior to the amend-  lent to the Mineral Act in 1898, can-  lot be used in obtaining  a  certificate  if nork.  (b) The said excess of work, al-  hough done in good faith as conform-  ij? to,the requirements of the Mineral  Act, as interpeted at the time by government officials, cannot be applied as  work  done  in   the  development of a  'liiine for the  purpose of obtaining  a  SK"     ^certificate of improvements.  P (c)   That said excess of work  will  E Hive-to be supplemented by new work  t" m of equivalent value, thus adding great-  '"������} '>' t0 tne cost of obtaining a ccitilicate  p "��� �� -of improvements.

But a little  while ago, the townsite boomers of Columbia made such a claim, and to  back it up published a well gotten up  map of this section. Grand Forks, of  course, would not let any 'opportunity  to claim everything in sight���and a  few others���as dependent on that  town. Greenwood also is not a whit  behind, and probably heretofore has  had the best of reasons for the claims  along these lines that her enterprising  [icople have put forward.  But this is all of the past. These  places have all grown and progressed  on the strength of the great propeities  of Phoeniv. This is now changed  I'hoenix and its mines are dependent  on no other Houndary towns. Its progressive merchants have mammoth and  well assorted stocks and are thoroughly up to date in every respect, as will  be noted from their advertisements in  the Pioneer. Supplies are secured ot  manufacturers and jobbers, and our  business men are on a par with any  others in the country. These various  places must drop the Phoenix mines  proper from the list of those directly  tributary to them..  Stick a pin in here. The Pioneer  today is the largest paper printed in  the entire Boundary creek district.  Nothing is too good for Phoenix.  Another interesting thing is the fact  that the circulation of this paper is  steadily growing, both at home and  abroad.  EASTERN  Townships Bank,  r r.vn'.i.siiKD 1859.
