Willcox,  SecretaryCouacll el Eight Already at  Work,  , The Phoenix Board of Trade 'was  organized at a meeting of business men  and citizens held last Monday evening  at the Imperial hotel. The call for  tlie gathering api>eared in last Saturday's Pioneer, and resulted in a large  attendance of representative Phocnif  men. The meeting was called to order  .by I.. C. Crawford, who has done a  good deal in the way of-working up  an interest in the idea. George \V.  Rumberger was selected as teuiiwrary  chairman and \V. B. AVillcox as secretary. Remarks were then made by  Messrs., Crawford, Kerr, Cochrane,  Wynkoop, Sears and others, and it was  the universal opinion that a board of  trade could be made of great benefit to  I'hoenix and the tributary camps. It  "was accordingly decided to proceed at  once to organize, after a canvas of the  38 gentlemen present who agreed,  without exception, to join.'  The!, following officers were then  elected for the first, term: President,  George \V. Rumberger; vice-president,  George R. Wynkoop;' secretary, \V. li.  Willcox. A councir oi eight was then  selected^-consistin^-of' the following  .gentlemen: \V. R.~Williarns, Noble  Binns, F. H. CanniiT, G".*S. Gordon,  L. C. 'Crawford, R.'B. Kerr, J. A.  Morrin and M. L. Foley., This council willact as an advisory -board or  executive committee, the officers being  ex-officio members of it.  It was decided to make a nominal  initiation fee of $1, with dues ot $1  per month. The regular meeting  nights for the board were set fcr the  second Monday in the month.,, . * ..  Throughout ihe meeting was har-  monious,^and,it was evident that those  present believed that no' little benefit  would accrue by getting together'as a"  board of trade.  Those who were present and joined  and who have since had ' their., names  added to the list, were: W.R'. Williams,  E.lVeeks, H. F. Hemenvyay, ,Ef C.

'Messrs.  Kerr and Crawford were appointed a  committee to attend to the matter.  After canvassing the subject pretty  thoroughly, a committee was 'appoint-,  ed, consisting of. Rumberger, Morrin  and Gordon to look into the 'matter  and secure data and all available information in regard to the distance,  route, cost, etc., of building wagon  roads to Summit, and Central camps.  Messrs. Binns, Kerr, arid Crawford  were appointed as a committee on bylaws and order of business.  It was moved by Dr. Gordon, seconded by Mr. Morrin, and carried that  J as.' iM.: Martin, M. P. P., be asked to  present to the provincial government  the unanimous request of the Phoenix  Board of Trade to place in the estimates for 1900 the sum of $1000 lor  construction and .equipment of the  Phoenix General Hospital, and the  further .gum of $500 jier annum, with  50 cents per day jwr; patient towaids  current expenses of said -hospital; and  that the secretary be instructed to send  a copy of this resolution to Mr. Martin  to be acted on by him.  Motion by Kerr and Crawford that,  whereas, the duties of the gold com-  miAJ��ioner for the Boundary district are  at present discharged by an officer at  Fftirview, a point about 100 miles distant, and utterly without transportation  facilities; and,  Whereas, this arrangement'��causes  the greatest inconvenience to all people  of the Boundary district, the Phoenix  Board of Trade petition the 'government to give the mining,, recorder at  Midwayyhe powers of a gold commissioner; and that cogiesrbe sctitito the  Minister of Mines and the member  for this district. c  "A committee of three, consisting of  Williams, Kerr and Crawford was?appointed to interview the post-office inspector and request improvements rto  the postal service to Phoenix. ^   *   >  Council adjourned, subject <o the  call of the president and secretary.

Htaory has been made at Victoria  very fast since the last number of the  Pioneer went to press. Asannounned  then, the Semlin government was defeated on the redistribution bill on  Friday week, and the houke adjourned  till Tuesday. Then the old government exercised its greatest ingenuity  to continue its lease of |>ower, and  finally made a deal with five members  of the opposition, which, if carried out  and sanctioned by.the lieutenant-governor, would have given it a clcai  working majority.  However, (iovernor Mclnnes was  advised of what was going on, and  summarily dismissed Mr. Semlin and  his cabinet. Spallation was then rife  as to who would be called on to form  a new government. The dispatches  slate that Postmaster Brown of New-  Westminister, was called on, but finding that he would lose his federal position, declined the thanl.ioss job with  more or less regret.  The political world was astounded  when the lieutenant-governor called on  Joseph Martin, who had been dismissed from the Semlin ministry, to form  the new government. Nothing could  have been further from the thought of  the people and the politicians. However, Mr. Martin has already taken  hold with the indomitable energy he  is so well known to possess, and may  succeed in getting a cabinet together.  The name of James Dunsmuir, the  coal king, was at first associated with  that of Mr. Martin in the formation of  the new government, and was adversely commented upon almost universally.  Since that, however, it is given out  that Mr. Dunsmuir is not .interested  in-the new-deal,- and to that 'extent the'  new premier has strentheiied his position.  Mr. Martin has already made two  selectionsToi his cabinet, consisting ol  Smith Curtis, of Rossland, as minister  of finance, and mines and J.S. Yates as  provincial secretary. Mr. Curtis is  well known in' Kootenay and Yale as  being extensively interested in mines,  and will doubtless make a good official.  He was formerly Mr. Martin's law-  partner in Manitoba, and is a man of  a good deal ot force. Many think, he  would undoubtedly be returned at the  polls, as he stands well. Mr. J. Stewart Yates of Victoria is the man already  chosen for provincial secretary and  minister of lands and works. Others  will doubtless be announced before  this reaches the e\ es of the Pioneer's  readers. Mr. Martin will himself oc  ��cupy the position of attorney-general.  New Premier's Policy.-  P The policy upon which the new government will go at once to the people  contains as its chief plank the ' public  ownership and operation of railways.  The first move will be to build a railway from the coast to some point in  the Boundary,. presumably Midway.  The .road is to be owned by the government, and operated by a commission to keep it out of politics,. The  idea is to give to the farmers of the  Fraser river valley a quick market and  the mines of Yale and Kootenay the  best .of communication with the coast  merchants.. The ��� plans of the new  government also provide for cancellation of the Alien Exclusiou law and  retention of the principle of the Eight-  Hour law.  Joe Martin will, of course, have to  go to the people at "once-for endorsement, and it is thought a new election  will be brought on within six weeks.  As no supply was granted by the  Semlin government, and no estimates  passed, another session will be necessitated, probably in May.  It will thus be noted that the policies in the province are tending to shilt  down to dominion party lines, as Martin is a liberal himself and is attempting to surround himself with advisors  of a similar political faith.  Resolution Was Unique.  In the meantime, according to the  latest dispatches, Mr. Martin not yet  having taken the reins of, power, the  old government has been Hrying to do  a little business at the old stand. The  following resolution, criticising the  lieutenant-governor, was introduced,  and is said to be unique in the political history of British Columbia:  "Whereas the lieutenant-governor  has dismissed a ministry possessing  the support of a majority of-the members of this house; and whereas his  reasons for  doing so are   insufficient;   ���   __        .  __.__.,,-,--,���r-r-j  ; incl whereas," his honor  has  tailed to  OFFICE'     KNOB   HILL   AYBJS!UE.Js;,n:,ndV;in1scl1l,v(-onsliu,tio!,l!   ad-  I.A-ihR���Dispatches received last  night from Victoria are .to the effect  that confusion worse confounded reigns  at Victoria. Thursday the lisutenant-  govcrnor could not get into the house  till a want of confidence in Joe, Martin had been unanimously passed.  Then his lionor was admitted, and  when he started to piorogue that bo|ly,  every member but Joe Martin left the  legislative hall, and his honor spoke  to empty scats.  Duration of Ministries.

Theie were  two full cars ot the machinery, which  v\ill be installed at the earliest possible  date. The new hoist has been on  hand for some time, and will be'set up  with the other machinery, which has  arrived. With the 40-horse power  boiler now in use, this will give a total  power equal'to 200 hoi Res. '  . The new and really elegant administrative buildings of the 11. C. Char- >  tered Co. have been completed, and  are now being occupied by Manager  Parrish, and his assistants. Shipments from the ore dumps of the 11.  C. are continuing steadily at the rate  of s cars every other day, ana will  keep up at this rate. Thus far 1500''  tons ot ore have been sent out to the  Trail, smelter, making the 11. C. the  banner shipper up to this date.  This week the air compressor at the  War Eagle was started up and hand  drilling has been relegated to innocuous desuetude. ' The new plant, with  its half ola 10-drill Ingersoll-Sergeant  duplex machine, is working in good  shape, and Supt. IJuck says it is" giving grtat s'atis action. The hoist and  pum[ s have been working tor some  time, also with good results.  George Runiberger visited the War  Eagle a few days ago, and saw the,ore  now being taken cut of the mfne.  He was mlich pleased at its appearance. The shait is now down about  60 feet, the sinking being vertically on  the ledge. No ciosscuttmg is expected  to-be-done till tlie ico-loot level is  reached.  The temporary four-drill compressor,  ordered for the Gold Drop, to be used  till the new half of a 15-drill p'ant is  manufactured, was hauled to the mine  last week. This week it has been set  '.up in place of the steam plant, and  is now steadily at work.  Jay P.

At   last   the   long   looked-for2 has  come,,and the Semlin-Cotton government for the province of British  Columbia has met its Waterloo.    It chose  to try conclusions on  the re-distribu- < efforts  tion bjtfl, which was brought up a  few-  days jfince, and had the  bill passed,  the government would  have gone to  > thjfpeople 'once' more' with   a   fair  chance of increasing their late extremely narrow majority. < But Joe Martin's  jfchance for revenge came and he voted  u   /figainst the bill,: thereby' giving' the  ' , majority to the opposition and defeat-  '    ing the government/ '   ��� >'  -    Since the defeat referred to,  speculation has beeq more rife than ever, as  , to the probable course of Lieut.-Gov.  " Mclnnes at this' juncture.   Coalition  talk has been frequent/ with - the idea  \ of some members of the present, cxec-  ,^'utive    council    continuing    therein.  'Plans enough to run forty governments  have been proposed  and rejected  by  vlhe many political entities now" serving  tbe province at Victoria.   At this writing a prediction is difficult to make,  ,   but it is almost or quite' certain  that  there will be a new election soon.  ' It Ls extremely unfortunate that the  J re-distribution   bill   could   not   have  been passed before defeat camel s It  admit of argument.

List Sunday a  Chinaman arrived  in town,  ��ith the  idea of locating  here.    Going into a  hotel, he invited all present  "to have  something,", using the best of English.  Meantime a self-appointed committee  waited on the celestial, and informed  him that Phoenix was not by any means  a desirable place1 for him to locate; in  fact, he would act wise if he kept right on  traveling to some lower altitude.    Of  course, he was a man  of discretion,  and so did not argue the matter to any  extent, but took the advice offered and  moved on.  It is the expressed intention to conduct the affairs of the, new organization - in an economical but business  like way. " If, a room is secured,  for headquarters and for the purpose  of having an ore exibit, it will be on  simple lines." It is not proposed to  have salaried employees or officials.  Every business man in Phoenix should  $ once join the board, and show his  hearty symjiothy with the movement.  The cost is small���a mere bagatefle���  the advantages to the community will -    -  be manifold.

No one man has  the interests of the entire community  more at heart, and no one will work  harder for its success than he.

Phoenix, the brand new town ofthe  Boundary, is pining^for an opportunity  of throwing off its swaddling dothes  and coming out in the full garb of  cityhood.- ,Wm. Hunter, of' Silverton  and Phoenix has taken down a petition  from the Phoenician's to the legislature,  praying for incorporation.
