that there are but a few copies of the

copies Friedheim received from Liszt,

enabled to present the true rendering
of the two great Chopin etudes she is
to play, the C minor and the etude ia

advantage of having made a special
study of the interpretation with a pu

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

ment of last December had been sold

better than the average that has ruled

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
