FOR OCEAN GROVE
The West Side of Nccanicum a
Seaside to be Incorporated.
SEPARATE FROM SEASIDE
Tht New Town Will 6. Called Ocean
Grove, and the' Bill Will Provide
For a Separate Government
and Election of Mayor.
It is reported that Senator Malarky
of Portland has prepared a charter to
Incorporate the west side of the Jfe-
canlcum river at Seaside as a town to
be known as the town of Ocean Grove.
Efforts have been made on several oc
casions to Include the west side In the
corporate limits of Seaside, but it met
with considerable opposition from the
people of both sides of the river. The
greatest objection was that it might
result In the establishment ot saloons,
and the people of both sides of the river
are opposed to this. Ocean Grove will
be the popular summer resort and as
thousands of women and children spend
the summer months there, a saloon
would result In driving people away.
By Incorporating the new town It wlU
be ot material advantage to Seaside,
as Seaside will be made the base of
supplies. It will also assist In the gov
ernment of the water system, as the
mains of the Seaside system run all
through the grove from the lower to
the upper bridge. The charter of the
town of Seaside gives the town control
over the water system within and with
out the town, but It is very probable
that satisfactory arrangements can be
made to dispose of the portion of the
system to the new town, if satisfactory
arrangements can be made.
The new charter will provide for the
election of a mayor and common coun
cil composed of five members, a town
clerk and a marshal to serve during
the summer season. It is very probable
than Can J. Moore will be appointed
mayor. It is not known who will con
stitute the common council. Both:
towns of Seaside and Ocean Grove can
co-operate for needed Improvements.
As the west side is not Included with
in the corporate limits of the town of
Seaside, no police protection can be
afforded campers in the grove, and it
often occurs that a policeman is neces
sary, particularly ,for the protection of
property for vandals. There will be no
objection on the part of the people of
Seaside to the proposed new town.
Rivals Now, as enjoyable as ever
before on account of the keen satirical
wit, of which the author was a roaster
unsurpassed, or even equalled by the
more modern of his numerous imi
tators. As portrayed by the Jefferson,
who will be at Hedrkk's theater Wed
nesday, January 23. the caustic lines
have lost none of their original pene
tvatlon and the many laughable situa
tions are cleverly put on by the excel
lent company which these artists have
in their support. Joseph Jefferson, Jr,
is the Sir Luclous O'Trigsrer, and Wll
Ham AY. Jefferson is Bob Acres, or
Fighting" Bob, while Kiolllet Tage Is
the Mrs. Malaprop and Vomer Charges
plays the irascrible Sir Anthony Ab
Solute, others In the cast are all
picked members of the support of Jo
seph Jefferson, Sr, and therefore a
high class performance may be reas
There are a great many people In
Astoria who have the impression that
the stage in Hedrlck's theater Is too
small for such productions, and ad
mining that the proscenium Is slight
ly smaller than the average legitimate
house. The depth of the stage is with-
In IS inches of that ot the Baker In
Portland and as deep as the Empire
In Portland. The management has
worked with considerable persistency
in securing this well known company
and this performance will be the Index
to many first class performances In the
future, if there is a good showing that

Steamer Elder's Bad Plight Olympia
Meets With Mishap.
At the outset of her career as a
blockade runner of contraband Rus
sian goods, the steamer Olympia is
meeting hard luck. She went to Com
ax for a supply of coal for the trans
pacific trip, and then left out for the
orient, but on her way through the
straits she blew out a cylinder head
and had to be taken back to Seattle for
repairs. When the boilerhead blew out
Chief Engineer S. S. Snyder was bad
ly scalded by live steam.
The steamer Geo. W. Elder, which
went on the rocks near Hunters point
above Goble Saturday was reported to
be in a rather precarious condition last
night. When she struck the rocks
she poked a large hole amldship and the
Elder hung there., Xow she has swung
partly across the river and the storm
may tilt her off the rock. In this event
she will sink like a stone, as the water
is nearly 100 feet deep ' beside the
rocks, and, so far, it has been impos
sible to get a tarpaulin over the hole
in order to pump .the steamer clear of
the water in her hold. She carries 1J00
tons of freight, but yesterday the crew
worked on her, only succeeded in get
ting out 50 tons of cargo dry. It is
hoped that there will be no storm until
the Elder's cargo is out and she can
be raised and supported between
wreckers. The disaster was occasioned
by the sudden breaking of the steer
ing gear at a critical moment.
The steamer F. A. Kilburn left out
Sunday on her regular trip to San
Francisco with freight and passengers.
The passengers on the Elder when she
went on teh rocks were returned to
Portland and sent south by rail.
The French steamer Vllle de Mul
house arrived down the river ' today
bound for Australia in ballast.
The barkentine El Dorado, the
steamer Northland and one ship are In
the lower harbor waiting for better
weather co they can put to sea. The
bar was very rough yesterday. The
