THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Of tie Astoria anJ Ml Coast Rall
roalHaYS a Meeting.
THE JIOAI) ACCEPTED AS Jl UILT.
Yesterday morning the directors of
tho Astoria and South Coast railroad
had an official meeting, H. B. Thiel
sen, chief engineer and superintend
ent, reported, that he had accepted the
Seaside division of tho road from the
contractors, as it was nil completed
and in good running order.
To contractor Smith is due $31,500,
for that portion of the road from Car
nahan's to Bird's. There is also due
him $12,500 from the Pacific Construc
tion Company, for building tho line
from Bird's to Seaside. Besides this
there are allowances or incidentals
amounting to S700, making a total of
$47,000. This also includes the
bridges and turnouts.
This pajTnent is due contractor
Smith five days after the acceptance
of the road by the company, but Mr.
Case, as trustee, has thirty days after
that, allowed him to raiso money on
the securities, so that it virtually gives
flnrfv.fivn ilnve nffr fha fiPfonfnnxn I
and before that timo the financial!
arrangements will have been made
and the claim fully met
In regard to the telegraph line tho
directors awhile ago signed an accept
ance of a contract with the Pacific
Postal Telegraph company, but the
company did not accept it, and sent
down another contract for signature.
This latter required the railroad com
pany to keep an operator at each ter
minal station. The directors con
cluded that before the line could be
put up and in working order tho sea
son would be virtually over, and tho
lino of no particular uso to tho road,
and therefore postponed action on tho
proposition of tho telegraph company.
A proposition was received from G.
Wingate to donate to the company at
Glenwood sufficient land for depot
grounds, and to construct a neat
depot Trailding and donate to the com
pany, if the latter would designate it
as a regular station. Tho proposition
was accepted by the board, and supor
intendentThielsen empowered to make
all the necessary arrangements.
No further action was taken, and
nothing was presented from President
Keid, and the board then adjourned.
Respect For the Unknown.
To many their only fear of death is
that they may be forgotten. To per
petuate their memory, that they may
dwell after death in the minds of tho
living, is a hope and an ambition for
which many would be willing to give
all they possess in this world, even life
itself. To gain this end, millions have
been squandered in rearing costly piles
of stone and brick. Some have stooped
to crimes of blackest dye for the brief
memory gained by the horror of their
deeds. Millions have been lavished
on institutions of learning, that the
thousands of future generations who
delve for knowledge within their
doors may hold and revere the
memory of their benefactor. But the
memory of the dead is often as brief
as morning dew. This was brought lo
mind yesterday at tho funeral of a
Bussian buried from Coroner Su
prenant's undertaking rooms. His
friends were there to perform tho last
rites and convey him to his last rest
ing place, but no ono knew his name.
They simply knew that ho was a Bus
sian, that was all.

It Is Claimed That Coirovc rorp&scly
Fell From the Parachute Sunday.
It is now learned from a reliable
source that Arthur Cosgrove, who
came to his death by falling from a
parachute Sunday afternoon, commit
ted suicide, and that his seeming care
lessness in not providing himself with
a belt and other safeguards against
accident was nothing more or less than
a carefully planned arrangement for
taking his own life. It also transpires
that Cosgrovo was intoxicated when
ho went up. He had to be in order to

said that Cosgrove threatened to take
his life a number of times, and ho '

It is said that Professor lleduioud
estranged tho affections of Cosgrove's
wife, who, herself, is a balloonist, and
goes by the name of Bertha Anzola
She made several ascensions with Bed
mond from tho east approach to the
Jefferson-street ferry. Cosgrovo saw
that his wife's affections were centered'
in Bedmond, and at one time he had
reason to suspect them of sustaining
improper relations. The thought
preyed on his mind, and he concluded
to kill himself methodically as lted-
lUOnd had died by aCCidOllt.
0u tuo day of the ascension he took I
a number of drinks to nerve himself ,
for the occasion, and a short timo be-,
foro the balloon went up he took form-:
