the local eleven has ever gone through,

was lucky to have scored and all are
quite as positive that the Portlanders
can not win the next game. There Is
a prevalent Idea here that the Com
mercial is Just as good as any other
team on the coast And that it is in
direct line for the championship.
The next game on the schedule will
be played with Hoqulam, on the 23rd
Inst Just wnere the game will take
place Is yet to be decided. Negotla
Uons are in progress, and In a day or
two the matter will be settled. In the
event of the game being played here,
a return match will doubtless be play
ed at Hoqulam.
On the 29th Inst the Commercial
eleven will meet the team of the Puget

coma eleven Is a strong one and foot
ball enthusiasts will recall that It de
feated the Nevada university last sea

but Tacoma vanquished the Nevadans.
The Tacoma eleven will play a return
match In this city November 12.

the Commercials for their fine showing.
By December both teams will have

In view of the hard games ahead,

A. B. Hammond is now back of the

the mill will shortly resume operations.
Agents of Mr. Hammond' are now malt

and plans are being made to get out
logs to supply the mill. Yesterdu
George F. Shirley, on, of Mr. Hum
mond's logging representatives, visited
Seaside, with Attorney Curtis, for the
purpose of examining the route of the
proposed logging road. The road will
run close to the route of the Seaside
water system, and the two gentlemen
visited the scene to determine whether
or not the logging road would In any
way interfere with the water road, or
vice versa. Mr. Shirley will report
upon the matter to the Seaside coun
cil. While he has not yet given out
any Intimation of the probable nature
of his report, it Is likely be will Inform
the council that the logging road will
not necesttate any change in the route
of the water system.
The reorganisation of the mill com
pany is a surce of much gratification to
the people of Seaside. Mr. Hammond's
connection with the enterprise assures
its stability and makes it certain that
the lumbering interests , of the town
will be developed. A sash and door
factory and planing mill will be op

will give employment to 150 men, In

monthly pay roll of fully 310.000. This
will eb an Item of vast Importance to
Seaside and will have the effect of in
