Opening of the Sixth Seawn.-Gras(J Concert By the Chora* Aisiited by Mrs. BucknerandMri. Davli. The sixth season of the Dominant Ninth Ohorns concerts was opened at Temple Theatre last evening with a grand concert. The ladles of the chorus were assisted by Mrs. Paul Davis, soprano, of St. Louis, and Mrs. Ewell Bnokner of St. Louis. The audience was one of the very finest that has assembled In Temple Theatre, and the theatre was packed on the lower floor. The Dominant Ninth concerts seem to increase in popularity with each succeeding seasons, for the demand for seats was never so large. Under the capable leadership of Mrs. Kohland, the ladies are accomplishing much as was shown by their concert, but they hope to do even more at the subsequent musical events of the season. The first part of the concert was a song recital by Mrs. Bnoknei and Mrs. Davis. The program was as follows: 1. a. Amoroso, (E. Ohaminade) 6. Kypris. (Augusta Holmcl)—Mrs. Ewell Buckner. 2. o. Lea Filles de Oadlx, tLeo Dellbes); 6. To Soring, (0. Gounod); o. A Dream, (H. Bartlett)—Mrs. Paul "Davis. 3. a. Sweetheart, (0. B. Hawley); 6. Nocturne, (E. Nevin) j c. Loih Lomond,(Old Scotch)—Mrs. EwellBncic- ner. Mrs. Bnokner is an old favorite in Alton and her hold on ine music lovers seems not to suffer in the lapse of a few years. She has a most charming personage but her voice is the charm that pleases most the critical ones. Her r.'oh contralto voice was never heard to better advantage and in her first two numbers she fairly excelled all her past efforte before a critical Alton audience. The favor with which she was received was fairly shown by the enthusiastic encore that called her out and finally compelled her to sing another selection Jefore the audience could be quieted. The enooro was equally wen done as the first number and Mrs. Buckner re- :lred amid enthusiastic applause. Mrs. Paul Davis is a new vocalist to an Alton audience but her sweet soprano voice soon introduced her and found for her a way into the hearts of all who heard .her. Her number consisted of three parts but the audience Insisted on an encore and she favored It with a fourth. Mrs. Davis has a voice that pleased the musical critics present of which class there was a large number. Her high notes were very good and .her voice has in it a purity and richness that makes it a delight to listen to it. Mrs. Kohland accompanied the singers on the piano in her always faultless style. To her indeed is due much of the success of the entertainment as with a less skillful accompanist the whole effect would have been ruined. The second part of the program was a rendition of Wilfrid Bendall's and Adelaide A. Proctor's "Legend of Bregenz." The story of the song is of a Tyrol maid who saved the village of Bregenz from its enemies by a daring midnight ride on horseback. The piece was sung by the chorus with solo and duo parts by Mrs. Buokuer and Mrs. Davis. The concert was finished by 9:16 o'clock, but although it was short it was delightful and was a most auspicious beginning lor the series.

Men Who Stole drassesand Merchandise from Bluff Line Can Captured IB St Louis. || St. Louis police made a great cap- tare yesterday in the thieves who have been stealing journal brasses from the journal boxes of freight cars here, and flonr.and sugar from the Bluff Line cars. For months past the Bluff Line has been annoyed by the theft of the Journal brasses from the oars. The thieves would raise the oar from its trucks by means of jack screws and jith a hook would take ont the brass bearings. The thieves seemed to have the BlaQ Line at their mercy as no clue to their identity conld be found, nntil the last few days. They bees me so bold that they would steal a number of the brasses in a single night, and almost every morning some freight cars would be found relieved of their bearings. Seventy-two journal brasses were stolen at Klsah, and nineteen in the Alton yards. The Alton police could do nothing, but it was suspected by them that the thieves came from down the river and m|de their visits at night time, carrying their plunder away in a skiff. Then two barrels of sugar were stolen from a Bluff Line car at the new water works switch and later four barrels^of flour were taken. Roundhouse Foreman Thompson has been working on the case with the St. Louis police and as a re- salt the whole booty, with the gang of thieves, is now in the possession of the authorities. The wife of one of the thieves Informed the police, being fearful that her husband and brother would be arrested, and to save them sue told all she knew. The dec of the thieves was on O'Fallon street. It was learned from the woman that the thieves would come to Alton or Elsah In a skiff and at night time, after stealing all they could carry, would go back to St. Louis. The place where the flour was sold was a store in Granite Oity and the place where the braasefllwere sold was in St. Louis. A colored man in Granite Oity was arrested for having in his possession a quantity of lead also stolen from the Bluff Line. The value of the brasses that have beon stolen in the past month is 875, and the other plunder was worth folly $50. The gang is now broken np as two members of it quar- relled a few days ago and the husband of the woman who informed the police was shot by the woman's brother. Change of Firm.
