When Roadmaster Johnson was  transferred from the Nakusp and Slocan  railway to the Boundary, road a few-  days ago, he was told that,the new  road was different/rom the one he had  just left, in that there was no danger  of slides. He has been-finding out  different this week.,'.. Scarcely had; he  begun to warm his office chair when he  was .called out last; Sunday, to. Coryell,  (formerly Gladstone}, where he found  all kinds of troubles. In some of the  deep sand and gravel cuts. near, there  the slides were almost constantly coining down, and it kept all the section  men foi many miles around busy night  and day to clear the rails.  A Pioneer man happened to be on  Monday's west bound passenger which  reached Greenwood just 12 hours late,  or at 3 a.-in.. Tuesday. On the same  train were a number of C.P.R. officials,  including Deputy Minister of Railways  Schreiber, ol" Ottawa, and all had the  pleasure of a mile transfer at Coryell,  there being no chance of the trains  passing. Nearly every day this week  the trains have been behind time, as a  consequence of the" snow, rock and  mud slides, and this state of things is  likely to continue till the snow is entirely gone. TheC.P.R:, however, is  doing everything possible' to keep the  track clear. ��� Between Cascade and  Greenwood there has been no trouble  thus far.  ,nd in Sandon  ���al persons last  cial - health  een   in   the  Dr. C.

An extraordinary special meeting of  the shareholders in the King Mining  company will be held on Thursday,  April- 5, for the purpose authorizing a  loan of $15,000 and-another meeting  will be held on April 23 to confirm  the resolutions adopted at the first  meeting. The proposed loan is for  the pur]��se of buying a compressor of  five or seven drills for the Oro Denoro  mine. Development has now progressed so far that the mine is a proved  success and machinery is needed to  carry forward the work speedily and  economically.

Will Also Build Freight Sheds, Section  House and Water Tank.  ��� Although the railway track is yet a  couple of miles from Phoenix, it looks  as though the steel would be laid down  to this camp at an early date, as the  C.P.R. carpenters in this section have  received orders to fit up boarding cars  at once for the steel gang.  This week the carpenters are putting  on the finishing touches to the neat  depot at Cascade. Then there is a  few days work at Grand Forks and  Greenwood, after which the Midway  station will be completed, being now  nearly done.

For years the people of the Boundary have been endeavoring to get the  government to'either have the gold  commissioner'"; headquarters removed  nearer the population center of the district, or empower the mining recorder  at Midway to, act as gold commissioner.  It remained for the council of the  Phoenix board of trade to have its request in this "regard acceded to. The  following from the minister of mines |  explains itself:; 1       , ,  , Victoria, B.C., March 8, rooo.  W, B. Wilixqx, Esq., .  Secretary Board of Trade, ,  Phoenix, B. C.  Sir:���I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the  1st instant conveying a resolution passed by ycur Board of Trade regarding  gold commissioner for Kettle river  mining division. I am very glad that  your board has brought this matter to  my notice and as I personally know  that Mr. McMynh is well qualified to  perform the duties of gold commissioner and that his appointment will be a  great convenience to the public. I am  today notifying him to act as gold commissioner within the limits ot the Kettle river mining division.  He will be able to act as soon as the  necessary books and forms are sent  which I have ordered to be done immediately.  I have the honour to be, Sir,  ��� Your obedient servant, .

The St. Patrick's eve masquerade  ball given by the Phoenix Miners' Union, just as the Pioneer was going to  press last evening, was a success. The  music was good, the floor in excellent  condition, and the merry maskers  thoroughly enjoyed themselves till an  early hour this morning. The exchequer of the union was considerably  helped from the net proceeds.  Where is E. W. Asklns?  Wanted to know the whereabouts of  Board of Trade Considers  Matters.  The regular monthly meeting of the  Phoenix Board of Trade was held last  Monday evening at the Imperial hotel,  President , Rumberger; in the chair.  In the absence ot" Secretary Wilicox,  Mr. Reeve acted in that capacity.  Messrs; Gordon and Morrin, of the  Roads committee, reported' on the trip  made,to Eholt; -and, that: considerable  assistahce,could begotten from Eholt  and Summit business men towards the  project Messrs. 'Dorsey, Munson,  Breakenridge and Mclhnes were added to the committee, the number being increased to seven members.  Mr. Crawford, for the committee on  Mail matters, stated that as Inspector  Dorman has not yet, arrived, no report  could be given.  Mr. Kerr read the report of the  committee on by-laws,.which was finally  adopted, alter a few .changes. Nine  members shall compose a quorum, and  any member has the privilege ot attending meetings of council.  i The question of looking after the  sanitation of the town came' up and  was ..thoroughly, discussed, the sentiment being that the board should do  everything possible to assist the. provincial constable in carrying out the  health act of the province.  On motion the chair appointed  Messrs. Crawford, CannirTand Williams  as this committee.  Constable Darraugh has this week  given notice to several hotels to clean  up their back yards, etc., and wishes  the Pioneer to state that alter the  25th inst. he will proceed to prosecute  all offenders, under the health act. His  giving notice is not compulsory, but a  matter of courtesy on his part. The  act calls for a fine of not exceeding  $100, or six months imprisonment, or  both, on conviction. While the committee of the board of trade can act  only in an advisory capacity, the members will co-operate with Mr. Darraugh to the fullest extent in vigorously enforcing the law as it stands,  without fear or favor. No needless  chance will be taken of our having an  epidemic, due to non-observance of the  health act.  A motion prevailed that the dominion government be asked to increase  the compensation allowed lor killing  diseased animals, the present rate being inadequate to the wants uf British  Columbia.  The meeting of the board was a  large one, the room being crowded,  and several new members made application lor admission.  New Pastor for Phocuix.  The Presbyterian church'in Phoenix,  which has been a mission station up to  the present, is expected shortly to be  self-sustaining. This will mean that  the members will have the privilege 01  of selecting their own pastor. Dr.  E. W. Askins,   last   seen   in  Phoenix   Robertson, the   Presbyterian   superin  Joe Martin has been most success-  full in at least one, re&pect. He ha*  set every politician in the province  ago, and every conceivable kind of  combination is,bang canvassed, with  the probabilities more than even that  the fight will bethreeor lour cornered,  at least. From the coast, where the  pace is usually set, the leaders stilt  seem to lie at sea, although both conservatives and liberals are already  grooming for the fray. Mr.. Martin  was endorsed at one liberal meeting,  and turned down at'another.  Even the most experienced and  astute politicians will not predict with  any certainty as to the outcome. His  opponents strongly condemn Mr.  Martin for putting off the elections till  June, or until the voters lists are revised in May. At the same time, they  and others agree that the longer ther  appeal to the people is delayed the'  better will be the chance of success for  the Martin forces. In the meantime  the premier and Smith Curtis, the  minister of mines, it is announced,  will make a tour of the province, and  of course speak in the interests of the  present government.  Phoenix Liberals OrjaniK.  Saturday evening the liberals of  Phoenix met at the school house and  pertccted an organization. '1 he following office-bearers were chosen:  Honorary president, Hewitt Bos-  tock, M. P.; president, William l)ela-<  hay; vice-president, Dougald McMillan; secretary-treasurer, R. B. Kerr;  committee���J. B. Boyle, Athol Eraser,'  A. P. McKenzie andW. H. McQuar-  rie.  The following resolution was. unanimously carried:  "That, in the opinion of the Phoenix Liberal Association, it is essential  to the interests of British Columbia  that the coming provincial election  should be conducted on 'Dominion,  paity lines."  An invitation from the Rossland  liberal association to send delegates to>  a liberal contention of the riding was  favorably considered.  Conservatives Also at Work.  Tuesday a meeting of the conservatives ol the Boundary was held at  Greenwood, delegates from Greenwood, Eholt and Phoenix being present. Chve Pringle was chairman,  and after the object of the meeting  was stated, namely, to choose delegates  to the conservative gathering to be  held at Nelson- yesterday, speeches  were made by James Kerr, H. C.  Shaw, F. M. McLeod, Robert Wood, .  A. Stevyart Potts, Duncan Mcintosh  and E. Jacobs.  1 A resolution was adopted declaring  "That it is the sense of this meeting  that in the interest of good government in the province, it is advisable  that the present political contest be  run on party lines."  The following were appointed as  delegates to the Nelson meeting,  which was /or conservatives from the  six constituences in the Kootenays:  G. A. Reiidell and M. Tebo, Eholt;  Thomas McAulay and Hugh Murray,  Midway; A. Stewart Potts, Robert  Wood, Ralph Smailes, James Russell,  James Kerr, Clive Pringle and J.  Myers Gray, Greenwood; \V. B. Cochrane and G.

There  are several men who are considered  eligible, and a selection will probably  be made by the time Mr. Stewart goes,  or shortly thereafter.  NOTICE.  We, The Wm.

Supplies and living generally were high, the locality was not  accessible, and as a result progress was  slow. All this is now changed in the  most desired way.  The past year has been one of great  progress and development, not only as  regards the population  of the  Boundary, but in the actual work done on  the mineral properties  on   which  our  people have so wisely  pinned  theii  faith.    The year now upon us bids  fair to be equally   memorable.    While  the highest expectations of all may not  be realized in full; yet, unless all signs  fail, the worth of our  best  properties  will have been proved, and the stability  of the section settled to the satisfaction  of the most pronounced pessimist.  Every reason exists for the belief  that 1900 will pass on into history as  the most prosperous yet experienced  by the Boundary. While the war has  undoubtedly had some effect here as  clsew here, we have thus far experienced  almost no labor troubles, and from  every standpoint the horizon presents  a most encouraging view.  The Pay Roll Makes the City.  DEADWOOP  ��������������������  PHOENIX IS UNIQUE.  In    one   respect   Phoenix   camp  stands out unique .and in bold relief,  as compared with most of the mining  camps of Southern British   Columbia.  This is in regard to the financial ability of concerns   operating   here,  to  carry through whatever they may undertake.    Not that all camps do not  have strong companies engaged in developing their mineral wealthy but that  Phoenix has a larger proportion  than  usual of corjioratiorts of this class; and  in addition   has a total lack of concerns that are weak   financially   or  otherwise unfit to take up operations  of this class. , ��� ���  For instance, there are the following owning properties in or near here,  which are now  being developed,  or  shortly will, be:,    The Old Ironsides  'fyKning Co, the Knob Hill Gold;Min-  ing Co., the War Eagle Copper-Gold  Mining Co., the Gold  Drop Mining  Co^,, the Granby Consolidated Mining  & Smelting Co., the Grey Eagle Gold  Mining Co., the Rossland and Slocan  <R C.) Syndicate" (Snew.shoe),   the  Dbminion"Copper Co, the Red Rock  And Bald Eagle Mining Co, the, Lulu  Mining Co., and a number of others.  In this list there is' not a single concern but what has a large amount at  disjiosal for operation.  In short, those  -developing properties in this^camp are  not mining with their mouths.     They  , -are land , lteaded business men and  liave ample funds' for all purposes���  ���doing business on business principles.  One wili have to search a long time to  find a camp in-the broad  northwest  that can make a like showing.  Deadwood, the latest town to seek public favor, is situated iu the heart of  Deadwood Camp, about three miles from Greenwood, aud an equal distance  from the B. C. Copper company's smelter. It is reached by a spur of the Columbia and Western railwav. It is surrounded by such famous mines as the  Mother Lode, Sunset, Buckhorn, 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.

The -Phoenix- Board   of   Trade,  though not a month old,, has already  accomplished     something     definite,-  which, if other reasons were lacking,  has established the fact that it can be  made of practical, utility. ��� A resolution was ordered sent to the minister  of mines, requesting  that, on account  of the gold commissioner for the Boundary residing at Fairview, a point 100  miles distant and- without means of  communication,  the powers of a-gold  commissioner be conferred on the min-  ,   Ing recorder at Midway. ' As" will  be  noticed in another column,, the' minister of mines saw the justice of the  t request>and acted on it without delay.  t   For years residents of the Boundary  liave been forced, when  having business with Mr. 1/imbly,  the gold commissioner, to'make the long and expensive trip to Fairview���a place off the  usual lines of travel and without wire  connection.   This has been the cause  of endless inconvenience and delay to  tlie large number of persons who must  transact business with the official re-  lerred to.    Not only this, but it was a  most unreasonable application of red-  tapism that was in  reality  not  necessary.'   This is proved by the fact that  it is no longer needful to go to Fair-  view.    Every mining man in this section  will  feel the benefit of the new  order of things, which has been brought  about finally by the resolution of the  Phoenix Board of Trade.  While the first effort of the board of  trade has lieen crowned with succeeds,  there is ample scope lor further united  action. Conditions in several ways  can be changed hereabouts, if the attempt is made in the right way and  representations made to the right officials, that" will also prove to.be * beneficial to the community at large. Some  of these were taken up at last Monday's meeting of the board and others  will doubtless arise. Let the good  work continue. Phoenix is worthy ol  the best  One of the first official acts of Hon  Smith Curtis, the new minister of  mines of the province, was to issue an  order, sanctioned by the lieutenant-  governor, doing away with the ruling of  the ex-minister of mines, which threw  difficulties in the way of mineral claim  owners,securing certificates of improvements for the purpose of getting crown  grants to their properties.  Briefly, the situation was this: Hon.  J. Fred Hume, minister of mines under  the Senilin' administration, issued an  order requiring the recording of five  separate assessments .of $100 each  ��� instead of $500 worth of work, whether done in one year or five), or the application would not be considered.  This nonsensical and wholly- uncalled-  for regulation is what Mr. Curtis has  wisely done away with at the first opportunity, and he will undoubtedly  gain the friendship of the mining community ,in' general, to a large extent,'  for" remedying the evil so early in his  official career.  It has been sort of an unwritten law  that as little impediment as possible  should be given to the development of  the chief industry of this province���  that of mining. The late government  seemed to have lost sight of this entirely, as is too well known. The  new, government is making a good  start, at least.  Undoubtedly there are those who  will state at once that this order of  Mr. Curtis' was done solely for political effect. But even if this were so,  it does not detract one iota from - the  fact that it was right and proper, and  should have been done by Mr. Curtis'  predecessor. The Pioneer believes in  giving credit wherever" it is due; and  in this case it is due to the new minister of mines, who being actively interested in mines himself, appreciated the  disadvantage mine owners would labor  under if the old ruling was continued  and enforced.  It seems to be generally accepted  that Mr. Curtis will stand as the gov-  in the house of commons at Victoria.  But the trouble always occurs when  such a bill is referred to the railway  committee. That committee can either  kill or recommend it, and every business man in the Boundary will be interested in the outcome. Many of  them believe that even the low rates  recently made by the C. P. R. are  altogether higher than is reasonable.  Both the Greenwood Times and the  Grand Forks Gazette are' preaching  timely little sermons to their readeis  on the lack of sanitation in those  places. It is not a pleasant subject,  but the facts are presented without any  frills. Residents of Phoenix also  should take heed, and take no unnecessary chances to secure the visitation of an epidemic. That is the one  thing of all, that Phoenix does not  want and must not have. It is to be  hoped that the provincial authorities  will strictly enforce the health act.

A brick block must  fall on some peisons before they  tumble.'  ��� Last Saturday James Marshall started for his old home in Scotland, to enjoy a'well earned vacation of about  three months. Only last week Mr.  Marshall and Tom Roderick, our late  postmaster, received the last payment  on the purchase price of the Banner  claim, adjoining the Old Ironsides in  this camp, and no one will begrudge  these old timers their good fortune.  -4*  Mr. Marshall, who is president of  Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8, is one  of the most popular men of the camp.  He has the confidence and esteem of  mine owners and mine workers alike,  and has been one of the hardest workers for the union. He still has large  interests in the camp. He will sail by  the Cunard line from New York in  about a week, and before he returns  Mr. Marshall expects to take in the  world's exhibition at Paris.

The chief war interest is now being  transferred from South Africa to Victoria The Martin forces aie trying  to become impregnably entrenched behind their kopjes, and if the premier's  past record is any criterion, will not  surrender without putting up the stiff-  est political fight yet heard of in the  history of the piovinre.  The new Kettle river railway bill,  fostered by the leading citizens of  Grand Fork-,, has liad its first .reading  It is surprising the number of men  who are absolute failures in their own  line of business, says an exchange, but  imagine they know just how a newspaper should be run. Then again  there is the man who pays $2 a year  for a newspaper, and labors under the  delusion that he carries the burden of  the entire institution upon his shoulders. The good Lord, in His wise discrimination, has created all kinds of  men in making up the human family,  but no man has ever been able to  figure out just what use such individuals were to the world or themselves.  ��r>.  The "friend of the w idows and the  orphans" has been very much in evidence in Phoenix of late. That he  has been getting in his deadly work is  quite apparent. It may, by the way;  be taken as a pretty good index of the  prosperity of a community when life  insurance agents, in one continual succession, can visit a town and keep on  getting business. .This class of philanthropists do not stay in a place unless  there is something in it.  ���    of Timothy Hay Just to hand.
