Mitchcl, the erstwhile champion f dU-around weight tosser, broko tho only record i at tho annuul Labor Day gimes of tho New j Jersey Athletlo Club at Ilergeu I'olnt yesterday '?' afternoon. Ills feat was accomplished In the ,'l contest for throwing tbe flfty-slx-pound weight for height. Mitchcl tossed tho huge weight to rffi height of 15 feet G3 inches, which is l"s M- laches higbor than It li.ul over been sent before. s In tho hammer-tin owlnf contest tho big fellow f' lost some of his laurels nnd was rolcgatcd to third placo Instoad of Urst, because his hammer i chanced to lack eight ounces of requisite weight, W Xn hie chagrin over this unpleasant discovery 2 Slltchel was unable to again whirl the regula 8 tlon hammer to tho dlstnnco which would have r retrieved first honors for hi in. jS Bornard J. Wofors, another stellar attraction r of tbe carnival, won the hearts of tho spoctators $ by bis clever performances, although he failed to i break the record for 1100 yards lu the special ( run scheduled for thnt purpose. Wcfcrs was , acarcely to blame for his failure, however, ns jj tbe track was not In tbe best condition for fast $ sprinting, desplto the fact that the crack nth- 3 letes negotiated the several distances in clovor , gtjle. The champion mltsed a chutico to fur V ther distinguish himself when ho relinquished j but right to compoto In the tln.il boat of the 100 ; ard dash. Ills easy win in his triui heat if algulfloJ that bo stood an cxcollcnt chance of , capturing the final. Ills Idea in withdrawing J from the event was to save himself for the !j record-breaking effort, which resulted unsuo i cessfuliy. fi Charley Sulzer'i victory over tho Chicago t' cracks In tbe final heat of tho short sprint was S' Very popular wllu tho crowd, bo was his clover j' performance lu winning tho quartcr-mllu run. Ills schoolfellow and clubmate, Herbert K. tllanvel, ulso carried tlio sympathies of the spec tators for his creditable work In tbo special half. e mile and the handicap quurter-milo runs. That Js other plucky Jersoylte, Hurry Uusford, was like- n wleoa favorlto with tho slghl-aeclng folk when P he showed his motllolu the blcjcle races.

Calms and flcklo brecics nronot conducive to yachting, and for this mid other reasons the ntinuul Labor Day regatta of tho Lanhmont Ynrbt Dub, which waa sailed yesterday, proved one of the most unlntoristing of the Bcason. Tho wind nt the start was light from the southwest and then dropped out and elilf tod to tho west at tho end of the first round. After ward there was a calm and the wind enmo In from the wcsl-southw est, which had just force enough In It to enable the le-sding yachts to finish before sunset. So far ns the racing went tho Colonia walked over in the schooner class, tho Emerald not put ting In an appearance. Among tho larger sloopi tlie Syco again dofeated the Veiicedor, whllo Harold Sanderson's new HcrrcahoIT Anoatok, which was built to bent tho Hansdcl and failed, won easily In tbe SO-foot class, defeating tho AcuHhla, vorantll., atidSurprlte. The Acushln, whlih was theonl) bo it besides the winner to finish, wus becalmed, or she would have done much better. In tho mixed class the Korota beat tho yawl Pawnee, while the Hero boat tbe Mustnuintho SO-foot class. Among the 'Jo-footers the Vaquero I. beat tho Hourl, gklmmuug. and Prlscllln, while the rjhnrk won lu the 'JO-foot class. The Kit beat the Onaway and Dosorls II. among the 30-foot cabin cats, while the Win or Lose waa successful in the smaller class. Among tho open boat the Lora beat the Dorothy, Starling, lone, Minnotonoa, and Amos. There was just wind enough from the south west nt 11:30 to make a good start for nil classes. Commodore Rostley, an tbn Colonia, bad things all his own way, as the Emerald is said to be out of commission. Tho Amorita did not come In, so Hklpper Chrl!e Iiarr clapped all the cant as on the Colonia that she could orry, and she led the fleet of thirty-four yachts across the line at 11:30 with the wind oi or her star board beam and her balloon Jlbtopsall set to port. The Syce and Vencedor crossed at the next signal. 11:40, the former having the bestof the etnrt bv a couple of lengths. The NTorota and Pawnee were the next pair, then the Acushln and Vurant II., Anoatok and Surprise. Hera aud .Musm . Uoblln and Kile. In their reflec tive classes and In thnt ordor.

" The new play at tha Lyceum Theatre last night, entitled Change Alley," gnve vivid 11 lustrations ot the speculative mania in England known ai tbe South Soa bubble. Fire sets ot moving pictures were shown. The first was at Portsmouth aboard an old ship that had been turned Into a drinking and gambling resort for carousing mariners and dlssoluto women. Here Edward II. Sothern, In the character of a reck less rover from tho oca, was Informed that he bad fallen heir to o rich estate. Tho second was at his rural home of luzury.where he gavo a supper to his county frlonds, nnd was in loro with a neighbor girl impersonated by Vlrglntn llnrnod. Tho company was engrossed In the South Sea speculations nnd had invested money lioatlly In them. A third was nt Sadler's Wells Gardens, with a brllllnntly riotous entertainment In progress, und hero tho nows enmo that tbo bub ble had burst, and Mr. Sothorn'e entlro fortune which ho had Intrusted to an attorney, was wallowed up In the goncral ruin. Iho fourth was a representation of Change alley, copied from a painting which prints have rendered familiar. Here the commotion of a mobof spcculatlvo losers was shown, and in It Mr. Sothern figured as being saved from pov erty by tho faithful efforts ot Miss Harncd and two other loyal friends. A fifth picture ex hibited Mr. Sothern'a conclusive peace and hap piness In a rural environment. Each of tho Ave acts was complete In ltsolf, Inasmuch res it illustrated an episode char acteristic of tho period. Tho stago was filled in each instance with strongly drawn figures, who moved in and out of sightly rooms, gardens and streets. Tho scenory, by E. 0. Unltt, bad been admirably palntod, and, until an accident In tho third act, It was exhibited to Uno advantage. Then tbe clcctrlo lights went out suddenly, tho curtain was lowered, and during tho rest ot the performance gas only was burned, thus dam aging the tisual effects. But enough of tbe scenic outQt bad already been properly Illumi nated to provo what tbe remainder should liato looked like and to command sincere pralso for the lavish and artful mannor in which the piece had been embellished. " Change Alley " must dopend almost alto gether for success upon Its pictorial merits, and these may be reckonod as Including the charac ters that carry the action. Tbe authors, Louis In". Barker and Murray Carson, have put a faint and unlmprosslvc story Into their play. There nro two pairs) of mutual lovers in it. and at-drl whose paaaion is unrequited, but thire nro scant vicissitudes In these affairs, llttlo to provide desirable material for Mr. Bothern'a own purposes, and nothing to mako any of tho principals engrossingly con spicuous. Thedramatlo element is extremely weak, sound motives are lacking, and much kill In characterization goea, therefore, to waste. Mr. Bothern'a acting waa praise worthy, and so was that of most of his str.go companions, excepting that thev were sometimes too boisterous and violent. Perhaps that was due to a concerted attempt to force an interest with matter that was not of lUclf in teresting. The young ladles of the Gaiety are with us again. Tbo Gaiety girl whatever they may exactly be-ls possibly a type not so well known in New York as In London, but tho words have already come to have, through successive importations, aomo certain significance here. Experience has shown that the girls from the Gaiety Theatre that havo travelled so far as New York aro llkoly to be comely, limber kneed and tunoful. Their average of good looks Is high, and tboy havo tho faculty of nrpenriag dltlr.gu!shed as well as mildly wicked. But whllo they are Indeed tho former, tbo latter is a mere assumption w hich they take on with their rouge. But whatever the Gaiety girl is. New York has gotten to like her. Some of those that were seen in "In Town" last night at tho Knickerbocker Theatre made their conquests before. One of these waa Juliette Nesvllle, who remains the same Inter esting specimen of an Anglicized Frenchwoman; Maudo HobsoD, who Is as handsome as ever and as totally indifferent to any other effort at acting than her own agreeable manners im part. Marie Studholme. whose good looks are certain if thoy are wholly British, and Florenco Lloyd, who still has all of her live feet ten to display in their original dignity. Among the comedians. Louis Brodfleld Is th0 best remem bered. The merits of London musical farce havo never been so thoroughly appreciated hero as tbo talents of Its interpreters. Some of them hat o been entertaining to Now York audiences only at intervals that were separated by dreary stretchees of ilulnes". " In Town" is some llvo years old now. Its jpcecheannd lvrlcs. touched up for New York by Mrs. M. L. tiylct arc the work of Tanner and Boss. Its music '",, hK Qsmund Carr. Its arrangement, like nil of the pieces that succeeded It, makes no pretence to anything but extravagance. Since it was written the form of these pieces has lmproted, aud "In Town" is not equal to Its successors. It is drawn out lo a wearisome length, and tbo vivacious moments were far npurt. But It had some lively scenes and its actors wero ablo to add a brightness that the text and action lacked. From a spectacular point of view there was nothing omitted that would have added bril liancy to the porformanco. Foremost, of course, were the women, who. in the first act, presented such a row of beauti fully gowned, smart-looking girls as the now kork stage has never seen before. In this re spect George Edwardes's companies are never equalled here. Juliette Nesvllle. who has taken on about, twenty pounds since she was seen last with "A Gaiety Ulrl, was hoarse, and her songe ex cepting one wero omitted. Mlnnio Hunt was a newcomer who sang with taste and kept up to the beauty average. SInrie Homaine did a clevor character sketch ns a call boy. To Louis Bradtteld fell most of the mens ..work, and lie carried It capably. Hut his acting has lost In spontaneity. I here was a giaieful dancer in llosio Boole, and un unidentified trio danced vtith the customary enthusiasm. Tho women should hate been lift in skirts, for in the eecond act they were not to far sttporlor to our lo cal exhibits in the 6umo lino. But the opening chorus of Gulcty girls Is enough in Itself to make "In Town popular." That was a rurely brilliant display of femininity. The ploce. moreover, had the refinement and linlsh which la one or tho most agreeable features of these Loudon Importations. "A Bachelor's Honeymoon" was a highly en tertaining farco last night at Hoyt's, whose season II startod In laughter within a minute after tho curtain bad been lifted. Then, before tho first of its three acts wus two-thirds over. Its characters woro involved in a web or complications, and their predicaments wore so laughable that It seemed ns If tbo remaining acts must bring a foil In interest. Tho tangle of cross purposes was thon ns great as Is ordinarily produced In such farces Just before tbe solution Is begun, yet tbe com icality kept up unceasingly to the end, and tbe "West 14St OP "RELIABLE" p CARPETS Now wo can satisfy every carpet need at tho "low tariff" rate.

At times she could barely keep up to come out into the fresh air to refresh licrtclf. After she moved to New York, t!ic shortnes', of breath affected her when wotking in aclosc loom or after climbintr stairs. At one time, while so tuUcring, she was recommended to try some Kipans Tabulcs. The improvement in her breathing was such that she felt greatly relict ed nnd she now keeps the Tabulcs alttais at hand, and since she has done this she sats ihat the faintness lias not been noticed and she can now readily climb stairs or work in a close room without an) cf the s)mptoms of distres which fotmerlv oppressed her. When this experience was related to a physician who is familiar with Ripans Tabulcs, he laid: "The Tabulei are not advertised to cure faintness nr shortness of breath, and my imptession is that the sjniptomi referred to were caused by the stomach being distended with gas, as is sometimes to be noted with persons who use vegetable food mainly. Potatoes or cab bage," he said, "were quite likely to produce such a condition."

Tho story had a man, whose father had be ducathod him a fortune on condition that a maiden sister approved his second marrli gc. Just married to an actress. Her ho brought borne, planning to have her win her way to the sister's affections. But that scheme failed, nnd learning that he had thrco daughters was so displeasing news for the bride as to make more trouble for the groom. Hide is sues of woe to him grew out of his daughters' suitors, and from an action for damages by his wife's former manager ot or bcr broken contract. Some of theso were not strikingly unlike tbe incidents of other cross-purposo farces, but in the hands of II. A. Kennedy. W. J. Ferguson, JIivx Kcgnlan, Berenice Wheeler and Albert Bruning they wero continuously amusing. Then thero were- new devices of ouiicality that alono weru enough to Insure tbo farco pros perity. W.J.Ferguson hid one of these to himself. Ho had been hlttc-ii by a dog, and as hu was in the way was persuaded Into fear of rabies. Whiskey, to which bo was entirely unaccus tomed, was recommended us an antidote. Tlpi ness camo promptly, and with It h be-lief that he mis attnckcl by tho dreaded malady. Bo he staggered and barked, wildly assuring all who would list n that be knew bet w,i go ing mad. Tho other new bid for latightc-r was based nn two approaching duels be tween timid principals. One-, who was to tight the other two, was scut into his dining room to pracllco shooting at a target, and a sort nut was bribe-il to ring a bell forcterv Bhot fired. The tiring w.is done out of eight, and in view were the two other ilucllihts, at tlrat c-ongrutuisting inctuseite-s ihat tiie-ir oppo nent was poor marksman, and approach ing helpless dismiy with uach bullscyo that tho bell recorded. At tho thlrtl shot the ecrv Hit almost forgot Ills cue, niut the bell's tones wero delayed long enough for the listeners' spirits lo rise, hut reports and rings enme almo-it together uftcr that, and their hopes faded. Johu btnpleton was the author of the play, and was bade to come forward nnd be looked at. which ho did, and whicli was much for n hot nights audience, tired with laughing, to huve demanded. Great vlolonce was Jcommlttcd at tho Third Avcnuo Theatre yesterday with "A Hot Old Time," a new farce. The characters banged each other anil tumbled themselves, and re torted to all torts of force to compel tho audi ence to laugh. Tbo audienco did laugh, too, ns only an east side audienco can when It is thoroughly tickled. If the actors bad waited each Unio tbo laughter tnado a dm until it ceased beforo they went on, tho performance would have lasted six hours instead of three. But such delay had been guarded against by tho simple expedient of hiring actors with voices so strong thnt they could bo heard abovo any hubbub that a thousand persons with or dinury vocal orgnns could misc.

It is true, and deserved to be chosen for ihat reason as a funny thing to put into a force, but it can not be duubifsi that his power of luiiirs und toughness of larynx bad been taken Into ao count. hen tho merriment of too nudicnro rose at him he did not for an instant Mop siieuk Ing. but instead lifted his voico higher e'lll. and not a word bo uttered was lost.
