Xy 3Iin. Kate Linvillo Wants to be
The story of an unhappy married
life is told in a complaint filed in the
circuit court yesterday by Katie Lin
ville, who sues for a divorce from M.
O. Liuville. In her complaint Mrs.
Linvillo sets forth that she and de
fendant intermarried in this city in
January, 18S7. From that time up to
September of the following vear all
was sunshine and happiness in the
Liuville home, but then there came a
change over the husband, and in place
of kind words and loving caresses he
had formerly bestowed upon plaintiff,
he used harsh words, called her vile
names and frequently beat and abused
Mrs. Liuville evidently kept a diary
of her domestic life, for she sets forth
with great particularity the vile names
that her hubby is accused of calling
her, and the dates upon which he
struck her. The lady must also bo of
a forbearing disposition and suffered
this kind of treatment in silence until
the first day of August, a year ago,
on which occasion Mr. Linvillo's con
duct was such that she decided to
live wilh him no longer, and she
packed up and left him. The couple
were at Seaside, and a quarrel was
followed by the husband picking up a
glass goblet filled with milk and
throwing the contents over her.
Other specific acts of cruelty aro set
forth, and in conclusion Mrs. Linvillo
:i?ks the court to restore to her her t

REJD FINDS A BOND BUYER
Louflou Parties Said to he Heady to
Pat tip Money.
3u:i:Tixa or tiii: nutKCioits
There was a ripple of excitement in
business circles yesterday morning,
when it was reported that a bona fide
purchaser of the bonds of the South
Coast railroad had been found by
William Reid and that the directory
of the company had called a meeting
to ratify whatever arrangements Mr.
Reid had made. The directors held a
meeting all right enough, but the
board did not have sufficient
knowledge of what sort of an arrange
ment Mr. Reid had made to warrant
the official stamp of their approval. A
telegram was read from Mr. Reid, in
which he slated positively that he had
contracted for the sale of the bonds
with a London syndicate, and that an
agent of the syndicate would leave at
once for this city. The terms of the
sale provided that thirty miles
of the road must bo built
by November 15th next, and in
order to carry out the plaus for
tlie delivery or the bonds, it would be
necessary for the railroad company to
get an extension of sixty or ninety
days from J. H. Smith, the contractor,
in which to pay for building the Sea
side division, and to secure the pay
ment of which $391,000 worth of the
bonds are on deposit wilh L W. Case.
It was this latter proposition that
the directors dealt with, and after dis
cussing it thoroughly a" telegram was
sent to Mr. Reid instructing him to
arrange with Mr. Smith for an exten
sion of time. This, it is understood,
will be accorded, and a detail of Mr.
Beid's contract with the London syn
dicate is looked for in a few days.
The directors of the railroad com
pany do not care to talk much in re
gard lo tho matter at present They
all believe, however, that Mr. Reid
has at last succeeded in getting a pur
chaser for the bonds, but they are in
the dark regarding details. It is not
known whether the purchasers will
exact payment of percentage, or
whether the thirty miles of line to bo
built is exclusive of tho Seaside
branch. The names of those compris
ing the syndicate are not stated, one
of- tho directors saying that while ho
knew who the parties are, he is not at
liberty lo give their names.
In regard to the consummation of
the sale this gentleman said that
several little difficulties will have lo be
overcome. In the first place the credi
tors of the Pacific Construction com
pany will have to be called off as they
have filed a lien on a portion of the
bonds that have been issued. All
these matters can be fixed, but it will
take a little time. As regards con
struction of thirty miles of road by
November 15th, this also can be ac
complishedproviding the Seaside
division is allowed to be counted in
without any difficulty.
THE CORRECT CONDITION.
The above account was tlin mnf.
complete which could be obtained it
the lime of writing, gathered from
various sources. At a later hour, by
diligent investigation and inquiry.
The Astorian became possessed of
all the facts in the case and the exact I
condition of affairs wbinli is mvfln
herewith, and may bo relied upon as
A cablegram was rennivWJ Woilnnci.
day from London bv William Reid.
which stated that tho bondholder's
syndicate had decided tliat they would
lake the bonds on the terms previous
ly proposed, if tho directors desired.
These terms are not stated by tho
board, but they will be of interest to
the public aud here they are. They
will take tho bonds at 80 cents on tho
dollar, paying $2,400,000 for tho S3,
000,000 bonds, which consist of 3,000
bonds of tho denomination of $1,000
each. They also require tho comple
tion of thirty miles of railroad be
fore the 15th of. November next.
This infonnnfinn twih w?rW1 in Mm
directors hero on Wednesday after
noon and yesterday the directors had
two meetings. They are perfectly
willing to have tho bonds taken by the
English syndicate as soon as they feel
assured, but have had their hopes
raised so many times that theyare re
luctant to believe overy report of the
sale of the bonds.
The fact that a suit has been
brought against the Pacific Construc
tion companyby W. H. Bain, asking
that the court declare that com
pany insolvent aud appoiut a receiver
for the bonds nnd securities in tho
hands of the I. W. Case Banking com
pany, prevents any transfer of those
securities and bonds.
To obviate this difficulty is a com
paratively easy matter, as it requires
only $3,488 and costs of suit to settle
that claim and leave the securities
But another and a more serious dif
ficulty arises. Tho Seaside division
of the Astoria and South Coast rail
road was accepted August 13th, and in
thirty-five days from that time, if the
money due J. H. Smith, contractor,
was not paid, amounting to about
$47,000, 1. W. Case was authorized to
dispose of the securities in his hands
to pay the sum, and if not paid, then
all the securities and bonds in his
possession would become the property
of the Pacifio Construction oompany.
This obstacle was disposed of yes
terday by the board of directors. At
the special request and consent of J.
H. Smith, a resolution was passed ex
tending the time for the payment to
Smith of the money due him, a period
of ninety days. The fact that Smith
consented to this extension, and re
quested it, is conclusive proof that he
knew very well that the prospect for
placing the bonds was almost certain,
and that then there would be no
trouble in getting his pay, and he
could carry out tho contracts for con
structing the remainder of the pro
jected road, which had been previously
In addition to the $3,000,000 of
bonds, which includes those now in
the possession of tho I. W. Case Bank
ing comnanv. all tho othpr RnnnriKa
in their possession revert to the syn-
uivuui. ji mo inirty miiea of road
they require completed by November
15th, tho sixteen miles of the Seaside
division are included, leaving only
fourteen to build. Of this distance,
branching at the Y, about eleven
miles from the Young's bay terminus,
some ten miles on the main line to
wards Hillsboro is already graded, so
that it could be constructed as fast as
ties could be placed and rails laid.
L w- C6 and Judge H. 0. Page are
the members of the finance commit
tee of the board of directors of the
company, and it requires their signa
tures as well as that of William Reid
to transfer the bonds to tho syndi
cate, but they will be ready to make
the transfer as soon as the prelimi
naries are arranged and tho deal is
prepared for consummation.
Thus it will be seen that never lum
the completion of the road appeared
moro hopeful than at present, and if
no unforeseen event occurs, it is
almost certain that but a few daj's
will elapse ere the bonds will bo
assigned to the Lordou capitalists and
the money secured for the construc
tion of the road. In that case those
who have sneered at Roid will change
their tune, and tho hardy, energetic,
persevering, undaunted son of Scot
land will be awarded his full meed of
