MISS DAUGHERTY'S RECITAL Interesting Event in Musical Circles at Augustana Chapel Monday. Monday evening Miss Ethel Daugh erty, the new teacher of piano and musical theory at Augustana college, will give a piano recital in the college chapel. This is Miss Daugherty's first appearance in public since her return from Chicago, where she has spent sev eral years studying with some of the best teachers in that city, notably Ar thur Friedheim, the famous Russian pianist, who has since returned to Europe. It is not perhaps generally known that there are but a few copies of the original edition of Chopin extant, even the best of the modern editions being more or less incorrect. One of these copies Friedheim received from Liszt, and it is thus Miss Daugherty has been enabled to present the true rendering of the two great Chopin etudes she is to play, the C minor and the etude ia thirds, besides possessing the great advantage of having made a special study of the interpretation with a pu pil of Liszt, whose playing of Chopin the composer pronounced superior to his own. The program to be rendered follows : Prelude in B flat Bach Toccata Paradies Etudes, Op. 10, No. 12; Op. 25, No. C Chopin Valse in A flat Mosowski Rococo Schutt Berceuse Iljinski Polonaise in E Liszt Birthday Is Observed. Iast evening, at her home in the Burns building on Second avenue. Mrs. H. L.

CONTROL OF ALTON Itock. llnt Dr finitely Stated to Have Majority of the C. A- A. Shares. WILL RULE COMING MEETING Statement Given Out Says There Will Be No Fight Stock Goes up. New York, Oct. 1. Rock Island rail road interests, with wiiom John W. Gates and Edwin Hawley are sup posed to be acting, have captured con trol of the Chicago & Alton railroad and will be represented at the com pany's annual meeting next Tuesday by proxies for something more than 225,000 shares of the stock out of a total of 400,000 shares authorized. Un der the law a majority of the stock at the meeting can elect two out of the three directors who are to be be chosen. There hsve been conferences be tween t0 representatives of the Rock Island and Harrinian parties interest ed to establish the legal basis upon which both parties stand, and not to reach a basis for an agreement be tween these interests which would leave the Alton in llarriman hands, as some Wall street rumors have had it. This semi-official statement as to the situation was made yesterday. Will Be .No Battle. "There is no probability of a pitched battle for the Alton. Of the ultimate result there has b-jen no doubt since it was discovered that a majority of the stock was owned by outside inter ests. To attempt to hold the road and operate it would be mere folly, and is so recognized by all parties. Unless an agreement is arrived at involving terms quite satisfactory to the new owners of the Chicago & Alton tlie control of the road will certainly lodge in the hands of those owners." It was announced that the Chicago fc Alton preferred stock deposited with Kuhn. Ixeb & Co., under the agree ment of last December had been sold at a net price of $Si a share, a price better than the average that has ruled in the market since Jan. 1. When the Alton preferred pool was formed it was supposed that the stock was to figure in some deal with the Union Pacific. New Henri for M.. K. A T. Chicago, Oct. 1. H. V. Rouse, presi dent of the Missouri, Kansas & Texas road, has resigned and is succeeded by F. N. Finney of Milwaukee.

Sullivan, assistant second vice president of the Illinois Central rail road, has been appointed general man ager of the Missouri Pacific, with head quarters in St. Louis. Mr. Sullivan will assume the duties of his new po sition today.

ORPHEON THEATRE HAS A DISASTROUS BLAZE Davenport Playhouse Put Out of Bus iness by Fire Supposed to be Due to Poor Wiring. Fire at 1:30 this morning gutted the part back of the curtain at the Or pheon theatre. Third and Perry streets, Davenport. The portion of the house immediately in front of the curtain was also badly scorched. The fire had made great headway before it was discovered and then a general alarm had to be turned in calling out all available firemen before it was gotten under control. The theatre was provided with an asbestos curtain, which was down, and it served to hold the flames back from the main body of the house till the supports were burn ed away. Then it fell and the blaze spread. The loss will be about $2,00 including $WO in the effects of the company that has had an engagement at the house this week. The origin of the fire is unknown but faulty electric wiring is believed to have been re sponsible. LET EXPRESS MESSENGER GO Man in Charge of Car Robbed by Bandits is Discharged.
