tus claimed It was only worth S2 50. In the
quarrel Loftus stabbed Belden to the heart
killing him instantly. Loftus then took a
horse and disappeared in the mountains.

CRUSHED TO DEATH.
A Child Ban Over by a Heavily Loaded
Mary J. Murphy, a little three-year-old
girl living at 313 Valley street, was run
over by a wagon-load of plaster yesterday
morning and died at 11 o'clock from the
effects of her injuries.
The child was playing on Twenty-ninth
street, between Church and Sanchez, at the
time of the accident. She had started
across the street to join some children, when
she was run over by tbo wagon. William
Drucker, the driver, did not see the child
until she was under the horse's hoofs.
The front wheel of the heavily loaded
wagon passed over the little one's body,
crushing her in a terrible manner. Drucker
Immediately went to the Central Station and
gave himself up, but was released on bis
own recognizance. An inquest will be beld

No Picnic and No Hand.
Company II of the Second Artillery Regi

rail on Sunday morning to Ocean View for
a day's outing, including a drill as skirmish
ers and a sham battle between platoons. It
will be accompanied only by its field music
—four drummers. It has no intention of go
ing off on a picnic nor to take a band,
union or non-union. Colonel Macdonald,
moreover, is not permitting his crimnanies
to go on Sunday picnics. Captain Waters
is at a loss therefore to understand why. un
der these circumstances, the Musicians'
Union need demand a boycott on a "picnic"
of the company because of the supposed
engagement of a non-union band.

AMY GREEN AT COURT

She Wears His Flumes in Defiance of the
Conventionalities— The Coming Belle
of the Gay Capital.
M One of-athe most Important social func
tions of the week," says a London (England)
correspondent ot the New York Press, un
der date of 20lh ult, "was the Queeu's
drawing-room, which was as brilliant and
crowded and uncomfortable as the heart of
woman could desire."
Continuing in this strain the writer gives
a pretty description of the "800 loyal and
devoted subjects" making their lowest
obeisances before the Queen, surrounded by
the scarlet-clad beef-eaters and the youthful
court pages, all exercising to the fullest the
little brief authority vested in them for the
occasion. After painting the glories and in
conveniencies of the court fete his trenchant
pen was directed to the debutantes, concern
ing two of whom, in whose career San Fran
cisco has an Interest, he wrote as follows:
"The drawing-room was rich in presenta
tions, but among all no one attracted more
attention, or has been the cause of more
whimpering, talking and slinking of aristo-

cratic heads than a certain Miss Amy Green,
who 'hails' from the Far West, and who is
written down in the book of fate by those
who are 'in the know' as the coming
American beauty— with a big'B' — of the
season. Miss Green, it Is true, was a debu
tante at Buckingham Palace yesterday, but
she is no novice in the Loudon great world.
She made her entrance into that exclusive
circle a year ago, but failed to impress her
personality upon the exalted members
" Miss Green, therefore, being wise in her
generation, disappeared from view for a
twelvemonth, returning, however, to the
charge with the swallows of April, and
thus far has succeeded sufficiently to ob
tain several "honorable mentions' at the
early smart parties. Her chaperon is Mrs.
Sidney Peddar, also an American, who also
made her first appearance at Buckingham
Palace this week, under the auspices id the
energetic Mrs. Blair Kennedy, an English
society lady well known here, who, 'for a
consideration,' presents unspotisored young
women to the Queen. A year ago Mrs.
Kennedy escorted a pretty, ri h feminine
nobody throughout the season for the modest
nriiiiii of ten guineas a week.
"Miss Amy Green, who was, by the way,
presented by Mrs. Lincoln, is a very good
looking girl, tall and well set up, with a
beautiful figure and exquisite neck and
arm-, perhaps a trifle too well developed for
an ingenue. M. Worth says of her that she
possesses the most absolutely perfect figure
he has ever fitted. Her dress at the day*.
ceremony was well calculated to show off to
advantage her charms. It was a close fitt
ing 'Noah's Ark' gown, straight up and
down, and clinging, of white satin, brocaded
in tiny stiff, little trees, the train being of
white silk, heavily trimmed with ell ver
"The independence of Miss Green's
nationality was glaringly displayed in the
arrangement of her feathers, without which
no court dress is complete. Instead of
wearing these conventional plumes in the
ordinary fashion Mist Amy Green elected
to sport her-, in an exact imitation of the
Princess of Wales' own particular brand,
standing erect on her head, and repeated
again at the front of her gown. When
remonstrated with by Lady Campbell
of B!ythe.->wond on the impropriety of
such.au innovation she coolly remarked :
'I do so on purpose. I mean that his
Royal Highness shall notice rue! lie
knows me well enough by sight, and I've
seen him often enough, too; but he always
will look over my head, and not into my
face; so I'm just wearing bis own feathers
to force him to give in!'
"Miss Green comes from San Francisco,
CaL, as she is always careful to state, add
ing, ' that's where the gold conies from,
but people here say I can't hail from there
Mr*. Sydney Peddar.
because I am so mean with my dollars.'
Miss Green gave a drawing-room tea, which
was largely attended by American Lon
The two ladles mentioned here, Miss.
Gret-n and Mrs. Sidney Peddar, are the
daughters of the late William Green of this
city, who was the owner of the Arcade
property ou Market street and other valu
able real estate, which placed hiui in the
ranks of 'the substantial men of San Fran
cisco. Some time in the '70's he and his
wife were divorced, Mrs. Green being given
the custody of tho children. Subsequently
mother and daughters went on a European
trip, and after a tour of the European cities
settled down in England. Some six .years
ago the father, who had married again, died
and a contest for the estate was waged by
the daughters against the second Mrs.
Green. The case was fought in the courts
for several years and was settled very
favorably for the children.
Mother and daughters have since perma
nently established themselves in the En
glish capital. Mrs. Green No. 2 resides
here, as does also A. R Green, the brother
of the deceased, who now manages the
business of the estate.
Speaklug of the "drawing-room" upon
the occasion referred to, the Queen, iv its
Court Chronicle, says: "The last drawing
room of the season held by her Royal High
ness [the Princess of Wale*], according to
the Queen's commands, on Wednesday last,
was a very brilliant one and remarkable for
the number of women of distinguished rauk
who were present.
• "It was an ideal day for a drawing-room
warm and bright like summer; and the sun
added greatly to the beauty of tbe palace,
and lighted up the somewhat somber grand
eur ol tbe throne-room. The sun made
the gems sparkle on the neck of the Prin
cess of Wales as she bent forward to return
the homage of those who passed before her,
and gave additional brightness to the lovely
color of the satin and brocade she wore —
mer en doye— the most becoming of all tints
to her. Princess Christian appeared iv a
rich mauve broche, and a velvet train to
match. The young Princess, who apper
tains to the next generation, stood near her,
wearing a light yellow opera cloak with a
high collar. The Prince of Wales was not
present- but the Duke of Cambridge had a
place in the royal circle, and very few ref
erences were required from those who
passed the royal presence."
Of the dresses it says: "There were many
black dresses to be seen among those in at
tendance on the Princes and Princesses."
Then, after particularizing them, it enters
