The executive committee of the Cham

Fulton and V. L, Parker together with
Manager YVTiyte met , William Reid by
appointment yesterday afternoon in the
olllccs of the Chamber to discuss the
matter of turning over a right of way
to flie Portland -Oregon & Seacoast Rail
way Company of which Mr. Reid Is sec
retary and Mr. H. Hawgood, of Los An
geles, is president.
Mr. Reid now has a 60-foot right of
way for this railroad Company, so he
informed the executive committee, to the
extent of 12 mile. He desires a little
less than six miles more right of way.
1 he original plan of the executive com
mittee was to secure this right of way
and put it in escrow, at the same time
putting ia escrow the amount of money
that had been tendered so far as the
suits now filed in courtr are concerned.
While this plan has not been perfected,
although it was offered to Mr Reid dur
ing the last days of August through his
attorney, yet Mr. Reid said that he
would deposit in escrow a sufficient
amount of money to cover the right of
way over the six miles which he still
The executive committee have now
further asked Mr, Reid to put up a bond
of 2OO,OO0 that the laborers who wilt be
employed to build the road aball bo
paid. In that case Mr. Reid was as
sured that the executive committee
would secure for him the entire right of
way within the shortest possible time.
Mr. Reid will take up this proposition
with President Hawgood and make an
early report upon same back to the
executive committee. fi 1
Another Rotten Show V
The Denver Express rolled into town
Sunday night and stopped at the Astoria
Theatre and there is hardly a fit word in
the dictionary to describe its utter rot
tenness. Astoria can get more shows
dumped onto It of this class than any
city in the country. It makes a theatre-
goer just a little tired to pick up the
papers and see all the nigh-class attrac
tions being played in neighboring cities
the size of Astoria, while here any old
thing seem to be good enough for us.
We hope the next "Midnight Express" or
"Denver Express" that heads this way
will meet with a head-end collision up
at Blind Slough. What's next:
A SHAKE UP IS IN
THE NEXT MEETING OF THE POLICE
COMMISSIONERS WILL BE IN
TERESTING - CHARGES AGAINST
A shake-up in police circles is immi
nent. At a meeting of the poHi-e com
missioners on Saturday, charges were
preferred against Officer Thomas Llnville
by Officer Roy Twombly, the latter
charging the former with, slander. The
board decided to hear the matter at a
meeting that will be held next Monday,
October 23rd. At the same meeting, the
resignation of George Coffman, witose
beat is on Commercial stiect, was re
ceived and it was decided to accept same,
When his present leave of absence ex
pires, which will be at the time the next
meeting will be held. On the minutes
of the meeting of the commissioners,
this is all that appears, but there is a
story behind it all that means more.
At a council meeting, held in August,
it was proposed to notify the police
commissioners that it was the wish of
the city council that the police force be
cut down. It was suggested that three
men could be dispensed with, but on ac
count of the approaching regatta it was
concluded to await the September meet
ing, which waa held after the regatta.
At no meeting of the council held since
has anything been said about cutting
down the number of men on the force,
and it appears that several of them have
been on the anxious seat. Of late there
has been no concealment of. the fact
that dissension and jealousies have exist
ed and, instead of the police force being
a unit it has been divided in itself.
Stories have been told, and carried, one
to the other, and to outsiders, not for
publication, of course, but nevertheless
they have been told. When any of the
officers are asked by a newspaper man,
for information, they know nothing, not
even the common news of the day, news
that should be given him, in his capacity
a newsgatherer. That there will be a
shaking up at the next meeting of the
commissioners, there is no questionTand
the thing that worries some, is who is
to go! Chief Gammel has been appoint
ed truant officer, the school board asking
for the appointment of auch an officer.
This means that he can delegate any of
his subordinates to do the duties of this
position, and doe not force on the com
mission the appointing of an extra
The next meeting of the commissioners
will be an interesting one, and will be
watched with interest, as no doubt
