He and his vaude ville company opened yesterday at that house, and hundreds of people were turned away because there was not room enough for them. This was equally true of both performances, and last night had the the ater been again as large as it is it could net have accommodated all the people who wanted to get in. The performance quite justifies the patronage, for it is up to Tony Pastor's well-known .vaudeville standard. As the seasons go by that handsome mus tache Tony wears becomes more plenti fully sprinkled with gray, but he remains the same favorite with his audiences, and invariably has new songs for them. As a manager ne grows more aamiraoie eacn season, for his present company is one of strength compared to the average vaude ville attraction. The performance opens with George Aus tin in his slack wire act. in which comedy is mingled with athletics in an able man ner. Maud Raymond in her topical songs and imitations is good looking and enter taining, and Ed Lawrence and Mna Har rington give a Bowery boy and girl act which brought down the house yesterday. Tony Pastor follows with a collection of songs, many ot them relating to political subjects. As one hit after another was scored the . audience applauded wildly. James B. and Fanny Donovan give an Iritdi sketch, and the Rogers brothers in a Ger man sketch are very funny. Billy Clifford and Maud Huth do an unusual turn, and one which appears to catch the audience every time. Lew Dockstader, the oId-timj minstrel, turns; his attention largely to pol itics, and being absolutely nonpartisan in his hits, is applauded by people of all po litical faiths. The performance closes with an acrobatic act by the three Bouffons, which is both unique and clever. The com pany will be. here all this week, with a matinee each day. To get Tony Pastor and Lew Dockstader with a dozen high clacs vaudeville people on one bi.l at a popular-price house is an unusual thing. Next week the Park has "Coon Hollow," one of the big comedy-drama successes of recent years. ' Empire Roof Garden Company, i Willis & Hastlng's "Roof Garden" Vaude ville Company opened the Empire for the eeason yesterday, giving a show that was lively and bright throughout and absolutely free from "anything to shock the most fastidious." The electric-fire dance of Mile. Rlalta was the feature of the performance. The dance is a further evolution of the "butterfly" drapery-waving exhibition. The mademoiselle has added to the usual lime-: light effects the use of a glass plate in the stage through which lights are thrown on her billowing draperies from below and al so carries a row of incandescent lights along each lower ; limb, where the outside seam of a pair of er bloomers is said to be. When the lamps are turned on there is a blend of waving silk web, pink tights, lights and girl that makes a really beautiful compo sitiona sort of Incarnated pousse cafe, with serpentine accompaniments. Phil and Nettie Peters were recalled again and again in their nonsensical dialogues and songs. Oscar Sisson and Ethel Florence gave a clever and laughable comedy act. Others of the company were Estella Wilis, contralto: John Wills and Harry Hast ings, in a bit of descriptive work that was quite up to the average of that sort of thing; Kitty Kursall and Violet St. Clair, in buck and wing dancing; Christo. billed as the 122-pound wonder," who does some remarkable balancing of heavy weights on his chin, and Carnes and' Webster, a mu sical team, one of v, home the blacked one had the temerity to spring a brand-nsw joke. It took well, despite the time honored theory among minstrel and vaude ville workers that the people won't stand that sort of thing. The afterpiece, "A High Time on the Roof Garden, was livelier than the usual afterpiece, which seems generally to have been constructed to pre vent a crush ot the ending of the perform ance. Several specialties and choruses were interlarded. - The box office In the theater as newly arranged is something of a novelty and quite a convenience, being octagonal in shape and situated in, the lobby, where it is approachable from all sides. A double door has been opened, communicating di rectly with the new Delaware-street en trance. A new entrance has been built on Wabash street also, though the gallery pa trons are still compelled to buy tickets at the same place as last year. Fair Week IW11. Roland Reed, assisted by charming Isa dore Rush and a capable company, will be the attraction at the Grand Opera House during fair week. Mr. Reed will open next Monday evening in either "The Politician" cr his latest success, "The Wrong Mr. Wright." which has just finished a season in Boston. The popular comedian has an excellent role, and lends all the bct meth ods of his art to its portrature. The piece is said to be cleverly constructed, and its situations and complications are provoca tive of much laughter. The characters arc new am novel. Part of the week "The Politician." a satire upon a timely topic, will constitute the bill. The advance sale wlH open Thursday. Opera 1 louse durintf 'fair week, is one of the iiltieat aud best of modern extravaganzas, TcM!, and has achieved greater success than any other burlesque ever presented by Mana ger Henderson. This season everything is new. The costumes are strikingly hand some, scenic environment is elaborate and unique, the ballets are all freshly imported and the specialties are strictly up to date.

WEFEHS SPRINTS 300 YARDS IX THIKTY-ONE SECONDS. Fast Time by Cyeler Tom Bntler with a. Qnintet racing-Mile by Mi chael Welsh in 1:52 4-5. NEW YORK, Sept. 7. B. J. Wefers, the world's champion runner, established a new world's record at three hundred yards at the New Jersey Athletic Club carnival, at Bergen Point, N. J., this, afternoon. It was a wonderful performance, as he had to round two turns to go the distance. There were three timers and two of them made the time 31 seconds fiat, while C. H. Mende, of Philadelphia, stopped his watch at 30 4-5. In the final of the one-hundred-yards dash there were five men running and Wefers, having the pole, was crowded by Jarvis, of Pittsburg, and he halted a little about twenty yards from the tape in order to avoid a foul. The win ner, Sulzer, beat Jarvis by about a foot and the Pittsburg man was at least half that distance before Wefers at the finish. However, the judges placed Wefers second after he had made a claim of being crowded, but he did not blame Jarvis. W. A. Demerulle and Edward Dupre, of New Orleans, also took part in the one hundred yards trials, but neither of them was placed. Sid Jones, of Birmingham, who had a handicap allowance of two and one-half inches in the running high jump, failed to get into the first three.

Rational Meet of the Press Cycle Clob at Boston. BOSTON, Sept. 7. The national meet held by the Press Cycle Club at the Charles River Park to-day was a great success and 15,000 were in attendance. Nearly all the heats were hotly contested and the compe tition was terrific. The fast mile of Tom Butler with a quintet pacing proved one of the most, interesting events of the day. The Western men showed up well, espe cially in or.e-thlrd open, Kiser and Shreen, of Ohio, winning their heats and getting second and third in the finals. The pace in the race was terrific. The chief attraction, however, was the tandem races, and the different heats proved intensely exciting. Summaries: One mile open, amateur: Ellery M. Blake, Keene, N. 11.. won. Time. 2:09 3-5.

Neither Indianapolis Nor St.- Paul Did Creditable Work. Special to the Tndianapolis Journal. ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 7. The St. Paul and Indianapolis teams broke even to-day, each winning one game. Both games were very poor exhibitions of baseball, the morning game being about the worst ever seen on the home ground. There were less than a hundred people present, and that may have had something to do with the very "yellow" ball which was exhibited. The afternoon game does not look so bad on paper, but it was lifeless and unexcit ing, the principal feature of the game be ing the loafing of every man in the two teams. In the morning game no one seemed to care whether he played ball or not, and the work of both teams was roundly hissed by the few spectators pres ent. The locals have been putting up a very bad game lately, but they never played so poorly as they did to-day. The visitors were just as bad. Umpire March was as bad as the players, and the only time any of the players put any life into the game was when they were kicking on his decisions. Mullane and Damon were the opposing pitchers in the first game and both of them pitched fair ball. If the support in the field had been good it would have been a pretty contest. The visitors secured their first run in the first Inning. Shainon sin gled and scored on a double by Motz. In the secopd two more runs were scored. Hollingsworth "mummified" Stewart's grounder and Mullane threw Woods's wild to first. Both men scored on Hollings worth's muff of McCarthy's pop-up. In the. fourth the visitors got four runs. George and O'Rourke made errors and Krauss gave bases to Stewart, Wood and Hogan. Damon hit for three bases and forced Stew art in. McCarthy singled and Wood and Hogan were in. Damon scored on a wild pitch. Two more were scored in the sev enth. Shiebeck took first on fielders' choice and Stewart scored him with a long home run drive over the fence. The Saints scored two in the fourth inning on a double, two singles and a steal;' three in the fifth on two errors by Shiebeck, one by Damon, one by Stewart and a half dozen stolen bases, and one base hit; two in the sixth on an error by Stewart and a home run by Spies, and one in the seventh on errors by Shiebeck and Shannon and a sacrifice hit.

The second game was much better than the first, and was won by the Saints. Den zer did the twirling for the locals, and kept the visitors' hits well scattered. He had good control of the ball, and his speed was something terrific. Kellum opened the game for the Hoosiers, but he was touched up for four hits and gave a base on balls the first inning, and then retired in favor of Wiley Davis. The latter did some good work on the rubber. He was steady and had speed. The game was absolutely fea- tureless. Shannon made the error charged to the visitors, and it came late in the last inning. The game was slow and lacked in terest. The locals scored two in the first inning on a base on balls, two singles and a double; two in the fifth, on two singles and a triple, and two in the ninth on a three-bagger, a double, Shannon's error and a stolen base. The visitors got one in the third on a home-run drive by McCarthy. The other was scored in the sixth, on an error by O'Rourke, a stolen base and two short singles. Two games will be played to-morrow and one on Wednesday. Score of afternoon game: St. Paul. A.B. R. H. O. A. E.

McGunnigle, of the Colonels, declares himself in favor of the double umpire system, but Is op posed to the abolition of coaching. "Scrappy" Joyce is credited with saying that if he could release Freedman he would have a E-JOd team. Jojceis pretty near right at that. Nash says: "Every player in the League should respect -Tom Lynch. He is the fairest umpire in the business und is master of the field at all times." It is said that whenever any one starts whist ling "She May Have Seen Better Days" within earshot of any of the Cincinnati players the police have to interfere to prevent a homicide. Another Roanoke player has received promo tion. He is Williams, the backstop, who was recently signed by Watkins lor Indianapoiis, George Wrigley says Williams may be heard from In major league company some day. Wash ington Post. "It is not by any means a certainty that base ball can be played Without coaching," says An son. "If the League is bent on abolishing the coaching rule it should make one provision, and that is to put the rule into effect again if it is found that coaching is an absolute necessity." Walter Wilraot, who has the Western League pennant about secured, writes that he Is very, very happy, has made considerable money and likes being a minor league- manager. If he had It st, instead of winning, he would have made such a howl that he could have been heard In the next county. Pittsburg Chronicle Telegraph. They call William Henry Watkins "colonel" up in Milwaukee, but how he obtained that title is hard to imagine. Some men acquire that dis tinction by consuming a certain amount of Ken tucky's famous "moonshine," but as th Hoosier manager was never accused of that sort of con duct tha rank must have been conferred upon him for. valiant service on the field by turning what seemed a defeat into glorious victory. In view of the many sramps that have been won through Watkins's tiesdwork he should be ad dressed as general. Columbus Journal. Johnny Ward says: "Considered purely from the standpoint of relative inate strength, I think the Cleveland team to-day is the strongest in the League. Cleveland has undeniably the great est corps of pitchers in the League, while as hitters and fielders they are little, if any, in ferior to Baltimore. It is also true th.tt the latter team has depended much on its kicking ability and bulldozing tactics against other clubs, but in the Clevelands they more than meet their match in these respects, and, ts a consequence, seem to actually lose their nerve. But why, then, does Baltimore win the pennant? Because Baltimore plays every day and all the time to the utmost of her skill and ability, and Cleve land does not." A Matter of Ratio. Kansas City Journal. A well-known business man located in the Columbia building in Kansas City. Kan.. ha3 coined a new explanation of the mean ing of 16 to 1. The corner in front of that building is the favorite soot for would-be saviors of the country to congregate and argue the financial question, much to the disgust of the tenants in the building. A few days ago this gentleman, while pushing his way through the crowd of agitators, was stopped by one and asked if he knew what ! to 1 meant. "Yes," renlied he: "it means sixteen darn fools standing on the corner talking poli tics to one man trying to earn an honest living." The crowd caurrht on. and in an instant It moved to another corner. Three predictions. New York World. 1.

Sta'nsbury, of Australia, who re cently defeated "Wag" Harding for the championship of the world. The course was the usual championship course, four miles straight away, from Putney to Mort lake. Gaudaur has held the professional cham pionship of America since 1803 and twice before, 1SSC and 1887, he held the same honors. Gaudaur and Stansbury have met before. The contest took place at the re gatta at Austin, Tex., in '1X93. when Stans bury was not in good form. Since that time Gaudaur has defeated Edward Han Ian. George Bubear, Rogers, Hfickett and other professionals at the Halifax regatta. He also stroked the "four" which beat Bubear'a English combination. The new champion has made two previous visits to England. In 1SS3 he was over here with George Hosmcr, Ed Hanlan and Wallace Ross, but he had to succumb to Hanlan. and Ross despite his clever style, which was very much admired by the English, experts. In 18S6 Gaudaur rowed Beach, the Australian, for the championship from Putney to Mortlake. Stansbury won the Australian championship in 1SI1. when he defeated John McLean, on the Parametta river. Gaudaur weighed 15 pounds. He I six feet high, while Stansbury is about seven pounds heavier and one inch taller. Afier twelve false starts to-day the men. took the water together.

Stansbury thereupon stopped and appealed to the referee. The latter, nowever. would not allow- th foul. ana uauciaur linlshed twenty lengths ahead in The race to-day was for the world' championship, $2,500 and the Sportsman' cup. The weather was as dlsml as could be. " Canadian Cricketer Won. PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 7.-Tho Canadian cricketers won an international match from the Philadelphians this afternoon.
