STRIKE ONIRONSIDES  Fine Ore Body Reached in the  300-Foot Level.  NEW RAILWAY TIME CARD.  WHOLE FACE OF CROSSCUT IN ORE  Was Found at 175 Feet In the East Drift, at a  Depth of 300 Feet, aad Is Considered a  Most Important Discovery.  A couple of weeks ago it was whispered around that an important strike  had been made in the Old Ironsides  mine. Inquiry at the office failed to  elicit any satisfactory iniormation, lor  the reason that a big stream ot" water  rushed out,' and no opportunity, was  then had to get at the,ore body. This  week, however, since work was resumed, alter the holiday., lay-off,' it was  lound, to the great .satisiaction ot  Manager Williams and lhe officials of  the company, that the strike was all  that was anticipated.  For some time past crosscutting has  been in progress eastward from the  300 foot level of the Old Ironsides, to  reach the ore body, When the workmen had proccedecl^about 150 feet, it  was noted that they were gradually  coming into ore, which was improving  with every shot lor 25 feet. Two  weeks ago, after a round, an immense  stream of water���considered a sure  indication of ore���rushed out. At  first the find'could not be investigated  on account of the water, and then" the  Christinas shuc-down came. However, a -powerful 5-inch pump was set  at work, and this week, since the  miners resumed work, something could  be seen of the extent of the.strike.  The whole face of the crosscut is  now in a fine quality of chalcopyrite  ore, and of course the extent of the ore  body has not yet been ascertained.  Assayer Q. B. Smith is now testing  sampled, which are sure to give good  values. Those in charge are highly  pleased at this new discovery,   y.  STILL TRACKLAYING ON PHOENIX SPUR.  Qai'io the  does Into Effect Next Monday, January 8fb-  Greenwood Station .About Completed.  A new time card has been arranged  on the Columbia &. Western branch of  the C. P. R., by which the outgoing  train will leave Greenwood 65 minutes  later than heretofore. It will leave  Rossland about an hour later also.  The first passenger trains to run on  the new schedule'' will leave Greenwood next Monday at 1.20 p. m.,  arriving at West jRobson at 7.50 p. ni.  and Rossland at ro.40 p. m. Returning the train will -leave .-Rossland at  S a. m., reaching Greenwood at 4.10  p.in.  :The new station at Greenwood is;  about completed, and a new station  I has also been constructed at West  Robson. At the latter place a dining  room will shortly be opened lor the  convenience of travellers. .  On account of there being another  town in Manitoba ot the same name,  Gladstone, on McRae Creek, has been  changed to Coryell. That of Niagara,  on the North Fork of Kettle river, has-  been changed to Fisherman.  In speaking of the condition of  freight traffic, Supt. F. IV Gutelius  said to a Rossland Record man:  "We have almost cleared up-the  freight blockade on the new line, having cut down to 42 the number of car  loads for the Boundary country which  arc waiting at West Robson. We are  now handling 32- cars of freight' daily  and, when we have caught up with  the business, can get freight through  from Rossland to Greenwood in 48  hours. After the tunnel is opened to  traffic in February the lime will be cut  down to 36 hours. The qpenjng of  the tunnel will also cut down the passenger- time about an hour, making the  trip.from Rossland'to Greenwood  occupy about-7^ hours.  MINESHAVE RESUMED  Development Begun After, the  Holiday Shut Down  MACHINtRY IN THE BOUNDARY.  Rossland Miner's Estimate of What   Was Installed I ;i 1899.  The Rossland Miner has published  I a table of the machinery installed in  j the Boundary country during: the year  EXPLOITATION STEADILY GOING ON  It is as follows:  Ironsides.���A 50-horse  power  Brooklyn Is Ready to  the Ralls  Ship Ore as  Soon as  Reach Phoenix,  Having   1500  Tons Now on Dump.  ���'.-'....   New Year's Nifht Dance.  New Year's night the Miners'Unioi  gave a ball in trig basement of the  MoRae building;on Dominion avenue.  Excellent music was provided, there  being lour pieces^ and dancing was  kept up till-carlyi,..in the morning.  Rails Now.

The dance was given   ior  Now that the holidays are over, and  the  people  have generally settled  to |  business   once  more,   the   mines  are'  nearly.', all working again with full forces. I  The Old Ironsides, Victoria and Knob'  Hill were among those closed down to I  give the men a little rest and to make!  needed   repairs    to    the   machinery.  This   was   done,   and   last   Monday  the  three  properties resumed w;ork in  full force.    Among the mines that are  working as usual close to   Phoenix are  the Brooklyn',   Old   Ironsides,   Knob  Hill, Rawhide,   War Eagle,   Victoria;  Gold Drop, Snowshoe, Golden Crown,  Winnipeg, and a number of properties  where smaller forces are employed.  It i.s pleasant to chronicle the fact  that, all through this section, and in  fact throughout-the Boundary, the  relations 01 the men and their employers are of a most amicable character.  No trouble of any kind has yet occurred, and the mines are all working on  the eight hour basis.  Hartford Junction, two miles from  Phoeniv, were suddenly taken off, and  ordered to Greenwood, to complete  the -main line to Midway. No explanation was forthcoming, and some  hasty individuals published it that the  track would not be laid into Phoenix  this winter. '.       ���  Yesterday, however, everyone was  set to guessing again, when a big gang,  probably 100 men,' arrived at Hartford Junction, to recommence the putting down of the sieel, which will be  done by hand. It is understood that  the balance ofthe rails will first belaid  to the Winnipeg mine, after which, it  is asserted by those who claim to know,  that the small gap left to reach Phoenix will be completed. -.  President Shau'ghnessy, when on  his recent trip to the Boundary, is reported to hayer stated that, though  eight feet of snow had to" shovelled,  the rails would be laid into Phoenix  this winter. In spite of rumors to the  contrary, the probabilities -". are * that  this will be done.  the benefit ofthe building \inid lor the  Mineis' Union Hall, now being erected, and netted a cpmiortable sum /or  that purpose. ���   -   *   '-'���' '     '     '���  Killed at Greenwood Depot.  Gabrief Brunno, an Italian "was  killed 'on New Year's day near the  C. P. R. depot in Greenwood. With  two others ,he was walking on the  track when he was struck by a box  ear, his spine fractured and death ensued instantly. On Wednesday the  coroner, Dr. Jakes, held an inquest,  and the train officials were exonerated  from blame for the fatality. Deceased  was a young unmarried man, and it i.s  said his only relative, an uncle, lives  in Grand. Forks. Brunno had been  employed for some little time on one  of the railway gangs.  Aa Exchange of Palpits.  Rev. Jos. McCoy, of Cascade, will  occupy the Presbyterian pulpit tomorrow evening, and Mr. Stewart will  preach in Cascade. Mr McCoy enjoys the distinction of having built up  one of the best little parishes in the  presbytery, including a new and commodious church building, and is  universally esteemed by the residents  of his town.  Old Ironsides Waterworks.  This-week a carload of waterpipe  arrived at Hartford Junction, for the  Old Ironsides water system, which is  now being installed. The pumping  station has been built in the. gulch and  a boiler put in place. On the hill on  a level with the No. 2 shafthouse, the  lumber'is all on the gronnd for a tank  that will have a capacity of 50,000 gallons. It is believed that this will afford  ample water supply for that part of the  city. Mains will be laid through the  principal streets as fast as required,  and already a large amount of digging  has been done lor this purpose.  LX.

The shift is down '60 leet, and a contract has been'let to'coritinue it to the  100-foot level, when crosscutting will  begin.  ��� Assessment work was started on.the  Myrtle fraction this week, adjoining  the Old Ironsides.

'Some fine high grade ore is in  sight, and the owners think they have  a big proposition.  Last night the Stemwinder. closed  down. Supt. Robbins states that the  work was too slow by hand, but that  work will be resumed again on the  property as soon as the 30-drill compressor, how- being manufactured in  the east, is installed.  H.

The suggestion, made by the Pioneer, to get up a "Pay, Pay, Pay" entertainment in Phoenix, in aid cf the  Mansion.House Fund, is being favorably considered. This fund is for the  benefit of the wives and children of  soldiers fighting for the empire in  South Africa, and is being taken hold  of all. over Canada, as well as elsewhere, most successfully. Greenwood  is preparing one and Phoenix should  get in line, and have a rouser in the  Miners' Union hall, as soon as opened.  A. G. Simpson will be. pleased to consult those interested at anytime at  the Old Ironsides townsite office.    .  Five New Foresters.

C  MEMBER FROM PHOENIX.  Nearly every journal of consequence  in the province acknowledges that the  Boundary district  should have a  representative in the provincial assembly.  The  member   from  Rossland  riding  promised'to .advocate this at the last  session, but seems to have been too busy  to attend to it.    The members themselves, as a rule, do not deny that the  tacking on of Boundary  to Rossland  riding by the-Turner government was  an   unfair   makeshift.    Granting   all  these  things to be so, there is  reason  to believe that a redistribution bill will  be brought in early in the present session, by which Boundary will be given  a separate member.    This should take  nlace before adjournment and before  another  appeal to the people,  which  seems to be very freely predicted.    Ii  the legislature adjourns without doing  justice in this ^way to the  Boundary,  this section will be solid  against  the  government.  But when we are-granted a member,  where is he likely to come from ? That  is the query that is already agitating  several would-be politicians. Greenwood and Grand "Forks will' both  doubtless be strictly in the race, and  it seems equally probable that Phoenix, being the next largest town in the  proposed new district, will have the  balance of voting powei. It is not  believed that Gi and.Forks or Greenwood will agree with each other on a  candidate, as both would"' prefer the  plum. Yet one of them might be satisfied if a good man .could be found  whose residence is outside of both 01  those cities. Such a man can be found  right here in Phoenix, who would ad-  mnably fill the bilj.  The Pioneer is not shouting for any  one man, nor. is it promoting any particular person's political aspiration,  but we have as good legislative timbei  here as can be found in the Boundary.  Voters should think this matter over.  The Phoenix Pioneer*  ISSUED ON SATURDAY BY THE  PIONEER PUBLISHING CO.  AT PHOENIX B.C.  W. B. WILLCOX, Man.  SUISSCHII'TION HATES.

OUTLOOK FOR THE L0MINQ YEAR.  A man who Jooks on the bright;  side of things isa desirable citizen,  ands conversely, one who is continually  pessimistic and i.s a systematic cala'm-  ity hosier, is undesirable. Every city,  town and community usually has its  :full quota of both kinds of individuals,  ,and the Boundary i�� no exception.  The outlook for the lioundary country  generally Ion! the coming year is especially full of promise. _ While the growth  ,of the last year, has been lapid, that  of this year and of the years to come  will be of a more solid and substantia!  character. Now that the railway is  built, commercial enterprises-of-all  kinds can be carried on to the best  possible, advantage, and as a consequence they have been flourishing to  no small degree.  In mineral development, there has  been an enormous increase in the last  year. Now that .such .large quantities  ; of mining machinery are being placed  in position, there is reason to believe  that the year 1900 will outstrip 18991  several times over. This means a  largely increased payroll in all the  camps and a greater degree of prosperity generally in a business way.  Some persons anticipate quick growth  and expansion with the opening of  spring, but a moderate, steady increase  in mining and business lines will be  more healthy and more lasting. Look-  ring at it conservatively, and ���' not making the wish father of the thought,  there is; every reason to believe that  1900 will show substantial and'lasting  progress in the Boundary, in which, of  .(.uu.se, Phoenix will share.  ' 'I he good roads movement throughout the province and the world is extending. An exchange says, for instance, that the* relief of Kimberley  would be a good-Rhodes movement.  -The combatants in the Transvaal  observed the holidays to some slight  extent by throwing shells filled with  plum pnddings at each other. But  they are now .at it again, hammer and  tongs.  Calgary is the farthest western point  where recruiting has been going on for  the second Canadian contingent, and  northwest mounted policemen have had  the prelerence. As usual, there were  more,applications than places. This  contingent will give a* good account of  itself.  Up here in the Boundary we think  we have just cause for criticising the  mail service. But the Victoria Colonist has a little story in its issue of December 29th that discounts anything  yet noted. The previous day the  Colonist received'a-copy oftheNelspn  Economist of June 28th.    Next!  What is the matter with getting up  a Mansion House Fund in Phoenix?  No better object than to raise  monev  '   :    ' .   V' ���    ���.   . .;���'���'���  for the wives and "farrjilies . of British  soldiers, in South Africa could be  found just now. In Nelson some $800  was raised in one night by a public  smoker for this purpose, lossl.'ind is  getting up another, and, everywhere  the idea is popular. Who will volunteer to take hold ofthe matter? The  columns of the Pioneer a/e open for  suggestions.  Vauqhan ,'& McInnes,  The Pioneer  ...Butchers,  OF THE CAMP.

PiTO G  Many persons have an idea that this  is. a leap year. This topic and that as  to when the twentieth century begins  have been much in evidence of late.',  This is not a leap year, and (che .twentieth century will not begin till January 1, 1901. The best authorities  agree on both points.  Hon., Mr. Tarte has been severely  critici/-.ed, to put it mildly, for objecting  to the sending of Canadians to- the  war. The proposition to give Mr.  Tarte a commission to Paris scens to  meet with universal approval. Of  course the conservatives are making the  most in a political way of Mr. Tarte's  unfortunate animadversions. It was a  b.ad break on his part.  E. C.

The new town of Deadaood is having a little boom all by'itselt*. .    ��  Times are expected to be brisk in  Camp McKLinney this winter.  The Foresters gave an annual ball  at Grand Forks Monday night.  Foundations for the big power house  at Cascade arc about completed.  The septic tank sewerage system has  been recommended lor adoption in  Greenwood.  The first shipment of Republic ore  lias been made over the C. P. R. from  Grand Forks.  Grand Forks now has a typographical union and a newsboys' union, with  other unions about to lorrn.  ' Tracklaying is now going on to Midway, and in two or three weeks more  the residents oi that town will be happy.  The.sta^e line between Cascade and  Grand Forks is once more -being operated, now that- the reads are passable  again.  7.  Some 34 votes in favor of granting  ���' the Mother Lode smelter a'cash bonus  ot $3600, were recently cast in Greenwood and but one against it.  Greenwood, Grand-Forks,: and���* Columbia will soon have municipal election!., and would-be: candidates ' are  governing themselves accordingly.  ���j.. The C.P., R. has at ;last got the  "consent of Columbia to the grading 01  a street to connect the railway depot  by a more direct route with the town  of Grand Forks.  Chris. Peterson, who was recently  killed at the Iconoclast mine, on the  West Fork by a cave in,, was well-  known in the Boundary district, especially in Greenwood.   ..  Rev. Henry Steele, of St. Luke's  Church, Tacoma, has been appointed  to the charge of Trinity Church ol  England Mission, Grand Forks, and  will take charge on January 7th.  The wagon road irom Greenwood  to Central camp has been completed.  The total cost. was $4,000, of which  $3500 was contributed by the government, and the balance by citizens ol  Greenwood.  Greenwood has a by-law prohibiting the sale of goods on Sunday. Recently, a prominent merchant, Mr.  Miller, of the Wallace-Miller Co., was  arrested and given a sharp' reprimand  lor its infraction.-  W. A. Harkins, who for several  months sent out voluminous letters  from Grand Forks to journals all over  Canada, and thereby gave that town  considerable prominence, has resigned  ..and gone back east.  Sherriff Waisman and Deputy Gris-  wold at Republic, have been arrested  for kidnaping Martin S. Everett and  delivering him to Constable Dinsmore  at Carson, last summer. Everett is  now in jail'at Kamloops awaiting trial,  and the United States government is  looking into the kidnaping case.  NOT TWENTIETH CENTURY YET  Cannot  Possibly    Begin   Until   January I,  .1901.  In Phoenix, as elsewhere of late  there have been many animated arguments as to when the twentieth century actually begins. One century  cannot begin until the previous one is  is finished, and that cannot possibly be  complete with only 99 years to its  credit. Here i.s what the Spokesman-  Review says about it:   ..  "Of course," says a writer in the  Ladies' Home Journal, "everybody  knows that the 20th century will begin  on Tuesday January r, 1901." No,  everybody does not know that though  everybody should. There remain persons who keep insisting that the 20th  century will begin Monday, January 1,  1900, notwithstanding it is entirely  plain that a wheelman doing a double  century turn would not start on his  second century with the first rod of  his 100th mile. He must ride out  that hundredth mile, but having done  that, he will be free to start another  "century," or, drop off and fan himself.  A Spokesman-Review reader fakes  exception to this paper's recent statement that, "the first century of the  Christian era began with the.year one."  If not then, when did .it'begin? With  the year two, or three, or five? It began with the beginning of the year 1,  and every succeeding century has  started with a 1.  Men and brethren, before coming  into print in defense of the contention  that 99 make a century, or engaging  in animated debates with friends and  relatives, go into a quiet nook and  think. If you arc a man, ask yourself  if you would consider a hundred-dollar note satified with the payment of  $99. If a woman, ask yourself whether you want the change when you get  a 99 cents' "bargain" and hand over a  dollar. No, indeed, 99 years do not  make a century.  If doubt and perplexity still haunt  your mind, hum over the familiar  tune, and remember that while ','there  were ninety-and-nine that safely lay in  the shelter of the fold," one was away  on the bleak mountainside. A few  clays more, and the 99 years of the 19th  th century will have been gathered into  Time's mighty fold. Hut one is away  on the dim peak of Futurity���the hun-  dreth���and no man can foresee his  fate, or know any of the things it hath  in store for him.  FOR.
