DataGridPageChangedEventHandler not firing

The code below is used to create a datagrid at runtime.
I am adding event handlers to control Paging and editcommand however neither of the event handlers are firing
any ideas?

  protected void loadGrids()
        foreach(DataListItem Item in this.DataList1.Items){

            //Create a new DataGrid object named QueuesDataGrid
            DataGrid QueuesDataGrid = new DataGrid();

            //Format the DataGrid to look cool.
            QueuesDataGrid.BorderWidth = (Unit)1;
            QueuesDataGrid.CellPadding = 4;
            QueuesDataGrid.CellSpacing = 0;
            QueuesDataGrid.GridLines = GridLines.Horizontal;
            QueuesDataGrid.BorderColor = Color.Black;
            QueuesDataGrid.AllowPaging = true;
            QueuesDataGrid.PageSize = 6;
            QueuesDataGrid.AllowSorting = false;

            QueuesDataGrid.ItemStyle.Font.Name = "Verdana";
            QueuesDataGrid.ItemStyle.Font.Size = FontUnit.XSmall;

            //QueuesDataGrid.AlternatingItemStyle.BackColor = Color.FromName("LightGray");

            QueuesDataGrid.ShowHeader = true;
            QueuesDataGrid.HeaderStyle.BackColor = Color.Black;
            QueuesDataGrid.HeaderStyle.ForeColor = Color.White;
            QueuesDataGrid.HeaderStyle.Font.Bold = true;
            QueuesDataGrid.HeaderStyle.Font.Size = FontUnit.XSmall;

            //Do not autogenerate columns.
            QueuesDataGrid.AutoGenerateColumns = false;

            //****Add a series of BoundColumns****//
            //***Payment Filename***//
            BoundColumn bc = new BoundColumn();
            ButtonColumn btnCol = new ButtonColumn();
            //Set the BoundColumn Values
            bc.HeaderText = "Filename";
            bc.DataField = "fileName";
            bc.ItemStyle.Wrap = false;
            //Add the BoundColumn to the QueuesDataGrid.

            bc = new BoundColumn();
            bc.HeaderText = "Priority";
            bc.DataField = "priority";
            bc.ItemStyle.Wrap = false;

            //***Edit Button***///
            btnCol = new ButtonColumn();
            btnCol.CommandName = "Edit";
            btnCol.Text = "Change Priority";
            btnCol.CommandName = "Edit";
            //****End BoundColumns****//

            //****Add Handlers****//
            QueuesDataGrid.PageIndexChanged += new DataGridPageChangedEventHandler(this.dg_PageIndexChanged);
            QueuesDataGrid.EditCommand += new DataGridCommandEventHandler(dg_EditCommand);

            //Get the queue DataView filtered for the Type of payment
            DataView _files = ((DataSet)this.Session["FILE_LIST"]).Tables["LIST"].DefaultView;
            _files.RowFilter = "type='" + ((Label)Item.FindControl("lblType")).Text + "'";

            //Bind the DataGrid.
            QueuesDataGrid.DataSource = _files;


            //Add the DataGrid to the Atlas collapsible panel.
            Control x = Item.FindControl("Panel1");


    public void dg_PageIndexChanged(Object sender, DataGridPageChangedEventArgs e)
        ((DataGrid)sender).CurrentPageIndex = e.NewPageIndex;

Where are you calling loadGrids() from?
In order to register events you sometimes have to wire them up higher in the page hierarchy.
In other words, are you calling the method in the Page_Load?
Try calling the method in the OnInit method.
