choicest cells in. the jail, and when re

the worthless carcass of the pet brute.
The fellow's non-observance of a City
ordinance prohibiting owners from allow
ing dogs to roam at large resulted yester
day in serious and most in fill injuries
being inflicted upon little Miss Valentine
Goody, the eight-year-old daughter of J.
E. Goody of too cloak department in J. J.
O'Brien's dry-goods house.
But for the prompt action of Officer'
Coleman the child would have been torn
to pieces, perhaps killed, in the very pres
ence of filty of her little classmates.
She was within a few feet of the Hum
boldt Primary School, on Golden Guie
avenue, near Hyde street, shortly before
9 o'clock in the morning. The children
were laughing and playing on their way
to school, and the first they knew of the
affair when the dog fastened his teeth
in little Valentine Goody's left thigh and
she shrieked in, agony as the beast shook
her as he might have , shaken a rat. All
the other children drew back in terror and
ran. . ;-':.,..,"_ .•-.;.- • ."'••'. '
Officer Coleman realized the child's dan

choking him meanwhile with a strong
two handed grip around tne neck. ."•"•.i
j<: Tbe dog growled, fought and rolled over, 1
but go the hold it had on the child's
leg. He proved a powerful beast, how
ever.'and fought ! savagely for : freedom,
throwing the officer to the sidewalk and
escaping long enough to jump at another
child,, whose apron he tore in to" shreds. ' :',
•Officer Coleman again seized the brute
by the throat and this time choked nun
until bis eyes bulged out and his frothy:
tongue hung between his ugly teeth. '

that had gathered. '"The dog's mad t

latter wound tightly around the
dog's neck as a collar and packed the ani
mal that way to the City Prison.
* -.. Sergeant Houghtaling sent for the pound |
wagon and yesterday afternoon the brute
was lowered into the well whence ca
canines never return a'ive.
Little Valentine's injuries received im
mediate dressing at the hands of the
schoolteachers, and her father, who was
sent for, removed her to her home at 1002
Golden Gate avenue, where the family
physician took charge.
This is the second time the child has
been attacked by a dog. Last year in Los
Angeles she was severely lacerated about
tne face and ear by a savage pup, and yes
terday's experience has almost frightened
her out of her life.
Policeman Coleman, who saved little
Valentine, was bruised and scratched by
the dog, but not to any serious extent. '

The Russian barkentine Behring is not

port than she can help. ,Her captain nav
igated her from Vladivostock to Yoko
hama at very small expense and managed
to make this port without even engaging a
pilot or a tug. On arriving last Sunday
night he came to an anchor off Meiggs
wharf, and when orders came to discbarge
his small load' of coal and "trade" he
tripped bis anchor, set sail and made his
wharf. The sight of a barkentine making
sail and proceeding up th« bay gave rise
to much comment around Meiggs wharf.

Among those .'who think . the ship
Samaria is lost is Captain Peterson of tbe
schooner Sailor Boy. On March 2. he
was in company with the vessel, and on
tbat occasion there was not a stitch of
canvas t" be seen except some furled sails
on the main. | They had been in company
for sev n days, and ..e last he saw of the
Samaria was in latitude 46 deg. north,
longitude 127 deg. west. At 3 p.m. the
ship was forging ahead under her main
topgallant sails, and about, s p. M. her fore
upper and lower topsails were set. The
next day the gale came up again, and the
waves rolled up in all directions.. The
Sailor Boy could not carry any canvas.
The seas broke aboard from the east
southeast, from the south and the west.
Once in awhile the waves would break
aboard from all three directions at once,
and then there was trouble. The Sailor
Boy weathered the storm, but Captain
Peterson is afraid that she has gone. A
request, made by tbe owners of the Sama
ria, has been sent to Collector Wise, and
the chances are that the revenue cutter
Rush will be sent out to hunt. for the
Governor Budd and Dr. Chalmers and
Morse made an excursion around the bay
yesterday. Tne general opinion was that
tbe party was out for a pleasure trip, but
the Stale officials asserted they were out
on a visit of inspection. After looking the
Governor Perkins over the party went for
a merry trip around the bay.
The ship St. Nicholas had a narrow
escape yesterday from running into
Howard-street wharf. Tbe '■' tugs - Sea
Witch and Redmond had her in tow and
in a critical moment the Tatter's line
parted. The Sea Witch went full speed
astern and checked the speed of the St.

into the pier, howeyer. The damage will
not amount to $500.

ALL THE TROUBLE
SETTLED AT LAST
The Miller & Lux Properly
Massed in a Great
It Is Capitalized on the Basis
of Twelve Million
Henry Miller to Control Four-Sevenths
of the Stock and Be tin
■ '-. - ■ a'
All the litigation over the great estate
of Miller & Lux, which has attracted:
such attention, has been settled, at last by
the formation of a corporation, in which
the heirs hold stock in proportion to their
interests, or on a basis at least on which
they have agreed.
The value of the estate has been esti
mated roughly in times past all the way
from $2 000,000 to $20,0.0,000. The heirs,
however, agreed that all the property
should be sold to the corporation on the
basis of $1,750,090. The company itself,
however, is capitalized for $12,000,000.
Henry Wilier will according to the ar
rangement control four of the seven direc
tors, thus riving him a majority of one.
Putting it another way to simplify the
matter as regards the various heirs, he
.will control eight-fourteenths of the
stock, the German heirs three-fourteenths
and the other heirs three-fourteenths.
The voluminous legal document setting
forth the various points o the basis for
the settlement says in part :
The parties to the agreement are Henry
Miller of the first part, of the second part,
Henry -Lux, Philip Lux, Barbara Lux
nry Roebing Sr., Henry Roebing Jr.,
Dorothy Pott, Henry. Lux as tbe adminis
trator of the estate of Dorothy Roebing;
Salome Lux Wolf, Caroline Lux, Michel
Emit Lux," George Lux, Henry Lux, as
guardian of the estates of Emit and
George Lux (minors); Henry Lux as ad
ministrator of the estate of George Lux,
deceased, and Jesse 8. Potter as trustee
under the will of Charles Lux, deceased,
for the benefit of Henry Lux and- bis chil
dren, C. H. Lux, Lenox Lux Mcßride and
Lizzie M. Pott. '.r;.V^
The parties of the third part are Thomas
li. Bishop and Agro N. Lewis, executors
and trustees of the will of Miranda W.
Lux. Th" party of the fourth part is
Jesse S. Poller, executor of the will of
Charles Lux, and the party of the fifth
part is Jesse S. Potter, as the sole heir at
law of Miranda W. Lux.
The agreement is dated April 8, but was
not signed by all the parties till yester
day. The facts were given at Delmas &
Bhorlridge's office last night. :
There are numberless paraeraphs set
ting forth tbe death of Lux; that he left
a wife surviving him and lett a will; that
tbe wife died in September, 1894, leaving
a will, with a contest now pending, and
that it is now proposed to settle that con

of the firm; that the property is very ex

that in September, 18CG, there was
"due from the partnership to Henry Miller
$125,027 75, and that all parties now want

There are to be seven directors; the
