Cockill's Started Cannonade
Chicks Just Couldn't Fill 'Em
■ 0*
Spedal to The Telegraph
Wilmington, Del., July 14.—Smoth
ering the Chicks here yesterday, Har
jrisburg won its twelfth straight game.
The slaughter was 11-3. Five out of
the eleven runs that Harriaburg
ecored were from contributory causes.
The ground was wet and slippery and
'when the Senators cannonaded the
'pill into the infield there were some
•exhibitions of inside baseball not told
■about in the dopebooks. A new
comer from Lebanon, one Stubeman,
was on the mound for the locals, but
he had to quit. The first inning re
sulted in a blank, but the visitors
started to make things interesting in
the second. Cockill and "Miller walked.
Whalen sacrificed, and, on McCarthy's
single, Cockill and Miller scored. Mc-
Carthy stole third, and on Meyers'
ifumble, scored. Singles by Cockill
«nd' Miller, Brown's wild pitch,
iSmith's bad peg and Meyers' double
got two more runs in'' the fifth. After
that, they came easy.
In the fourth inning, Adams walked
McKenna, Jackson and Sharpe in suc
cession, and then ifeCarthy dropped
Whalen's throw of Sharpe's bounder,
McKenna scoring. A pass to Morgan
and Shollenberger's and McKenna's
singles scored Morgan for the Cham
pions in the fifth. The Chicks scored
their last one in the ninth on Pearce's
single, Shollenberger's life and two
errors by Whalen. Score:

Gunboat Smith and George Car
pentier Meet in London Thurs
day Night; Important Fight
On this week's fight card is sched
| uled a twenty-round bout between
j Gunboat Smith and George Carpen-
I tier, two clever heavyweights. This
J bout is of importance because Lon
i don fight enthusiasts look upon these
j fighters as the only real heavyweights
in the world. A cable from London to
! the New York American says:
j available billboard in and
I for twenty-five miles around London
| is proclaiming to-day that Thursday's
! fight between Gunboat Smith and
I George Carpentier at the Olympia is
j "for the heavyweight championship
l of the world." Considering this fact,
' the advance sale of seats already ex
] ceeds $50,000. The men will fight
I for a $45,00 purse.
"This ignoring of Jack Johnson is
! perhaps excusable. Certainly no real
j contest for the heavyweight cham
pionship ever aroused greater antici-
I patory interest than does this one—
j wherein neither contestant is an Eng
i lishman. While C. B. Cochran, pro
| moter of the contest, lost money on
| the Welsh-Ritchie battle (with total
1 gate of only $21,000) he will clean
I up a goodly sum on this coming ses
j sion. It is very evident that London
} has no use for little fellows, but will
i turn out in droves to see "heavies" in
j action.
"Nobody pretends for a moment
| that either Smith or Carpentier has a
i chance against Johnson; only the un
informed rank either man as com
| parable with dozens of great fighters
iof the past. But the fact remains
j that the match will attract the great
j est crowd and the biggest gate in the
I history of the English prize ring.
I "Sentiment among the majority of
(Americans and all Englishmen favors
I the Frenchman, who will undoubtedly
i be an odds-on favorite at the ring-
I side. The London dailies carry long
| accounts from both training camps,
I most of them having special corre
| spondents living with Carpentier at
i Manitot, France, as well as with
' Smith here."
Hooper to Shake
Up Red Roses Soon
| Lancaster, Pa., July 14.—Follow
, ing the inexcusable dropping of three
1 straight games to Allentown, Man
'■ nger Hooper, of the Bed Roses, is
going to clean house next week. Sev
! eral important changes in the line-up
I will be announced on Monday, before
! the game with Reading. The work
j of Lidgate, behind the bat, has not
been up to standard and the pitching
department is also weak.
Milliman is overworked and Owens
• has proved a failure. Lane is a good
j pitcher but is not reliable. He takes
I balloon ascensions when least expeet
| ed. Wertz is not fast enough for
i Tri-State ball and he will probably
j be among those left go.
Special to The Telegraph
| Carlisle, Pa., July 14.—The Gentle
| men's Driving Association, of Cumber
l land county plan to hold midsummer
I matinee races on the local half-mile
'track on Saturday, July 18.
Dr. C. E. Wogan was made presi
| dent of the association, Joseph E.
I Einstein, secretary, and U. Grant Ep
; pley, treasurer. The directors have
j decided to establish the event as an
annual feature for the horsemen not
I alone of Cumberland county, but for
I Harrisburg and the Cumberland Val-
I ley.
The events will be: 2:22 class, mile
j heats; 2:40 class trot, half mile heats,
' two in three, and county road race,
i (Horserf having a mark or any pre
vious training not eligible). Pony race,
i quarter mile dash; mule race, half
j mile dash, best two in three.
Special to The Telegraph
Detroit, Mich., July 14. —"Baseball-
football," . a combination of the dia
mond and gridiron sports originating
in the mind of Herman Brosoweska,
director of the board of education's
model playground center, was con
ceived to satisfy 200 schoolboys.
A very large, but light, ball is used.
The pitcher tosses the ball to the
batter at a level of one foot above
the ground. Football tactics are em
ployed by the batter, who kicks the
ball. The usual rules for fielding and
base running are used. A runner is
called out only when he has been hit
fairly with the ball.
Sunbury, Pa., July 14.—Alone and
without food or drink, Solomon Weas
ner was found at his ome in Straw
berry Ridge, near Danville. He laid
for twenty-four hours, after he had
been stricken with paralysis, a neigh
bor finding him there. He was rushed
to the Bloomsburg Hospital, where it
, is feared he cannot recover.
He's Doubtless a Regular Ouimet

MeCormlck's Island camp doesn't
yet boast of a golf course, as most
everyone knows; MeCormlck's Island
camp does boast of a golfer, however
• —and that everyone doesn't know.
Slangily, figuratively and literally
speaking, the camp golfer is up a
tree. Not that it is entirely because
no links are handy; it is because he is
so stuck 'up, as it were, that he just
can't come down from his perch.
Playground Supervisor J. K. Staples
discovered the visitor early one morn
ing. Mr. Staples dreamily gazed up
toward the tree tops; something thirty
feet above ground attracted his at
tention; he rubbed his eyes and sat
up and took much notice again. And
this is what he saw:
Clearly defined and outlined against
the sky line, by the curious formation
of bark and branches, was the figure
of a man about four feet high. He
was clad in golf cap, knickerbockers,
jacket and shoes complete, and hold
ing In businesslike attitude a very
formidable golf club..
In course of time the "golfer" was
included in the camp's roster and now
I he is shown to visitors as one of the
points of interest of camp. "Oh, yes,"
| any pretty little be-ribboned and be
middy-bloused camper will gladly ex
plain, "we may go in for golfing here
some day, too, for while we haven't
any links we do have a golfer to teach
us—a —ah—a professional, I think,
too. Only," concludes the small hos
tess naively, "he just simply CAN'T
get down to it."
Lemoyne is booked for four games
this week, three away, one with the
Methodist club at home. Dillsburg,
Middletown and Duncannon Is the it
The Infield has given the Reading
leader a lot of trouble and many of
the games were dropped because the
inner garden men were unable to
hit in a crisis.
Some fight critics now clalns Fred
Welsh's victory to be due to the
fact that he is a vegetarian.
Chabek, of Harrisburg, is the pitch
ing star with a great record of fifteen
victories and but one defeat. On Sat
urday Chabek won his fifteenth
j straight game by defeating Hoffman's
I Pretzels.

act In which all sorts of Instruments
imaginable are used. Carlta does a
nimble wire-walking act and Walter

dancing turn that is excelent. Begin
ning Thursday and continuing during
the balance of the week there will be
a new hill, including another of the

But Interest in Matches Is Keen—
Winners in Some Events
Hard to Pick
Present indications are that the
city tfennis championship, to be started
Thursday at Reservoir Park, will
make up in dash and brilliance of the
individual players what it lacks in the
number of competitors. Up to pres
ent it is estimated by members of the
committee that there are only about
half a hundred entrants. Many of
these, however, are topnotchers and
some hard playing is expected.
William McCreath, present city
champion, is expected to defend his
title easily against all comers. Con
siderable interest centers around the
women's singles, for Mrs. Chris H.
Sauers has been playing a splendid
g ne this season and is expected to
make a strong attack upon the pres
ent title holder of the city champion
ship, Miss Elizabeth Groff. Interest
ing play also Is looked for in the
men's doubles. If McCreath and
Gannet play together they will likely
win, but Swartz and Handshaw have
been playing a consistent game all
summer and some surprises might de
velop. Lightner and Miller also might
develop into dangerous opponents.
Swartz and Handshaw played Satur
day at Middletown when the Reser
voir park team defeated the Middle
town team in the following scores:
Black and Lightener vs. Smith and
McNair, 6-1; 6-2.
Yohn and Lightener vs. Beachler
and Hoffman, 6-1; 6-2.
Swartz and Handshaw vs. Kramer
and Detweller, 6-3; 6-4.
Miss Teeter and D. C. Lightener vs.
Miss Lingle and Abe Hoffman, 8-6;
5-7; 6-2.
Mrs. Sauers and Dasher vs. Miss
Matheson and Detweller, 6-1; 10-8.
Handshaw vs. Smith, 6-1; 6-4.
Mrs. Sauers vs. Miss Matheson,
6-0; 6-2.
Black vs. McNair, 6-2; 6-0.

Many Bankers Reply to
Secretary McAdoo's Note
Washington, July 14.—Thousands
of national banks have already replied
to Secretary McAdoo's letter asking
the opinion of bankers throughout the
country as to the advisability of lend
ing government funds to banks to
move crops. Many bankers urged the
lending of government funds, just as
was done last year when about $37,-
000,000 was loaned to banks by the
Treasury Department. Mr. McAdoo
also asked a number of other ques
tions in his general letter. He sought
advice as to the best centers for dis
tribution of the money and the locals
.ties where it would be most needed.
Clerks are busy tabulating the re
plies and after waiting a reasonable
time for replies from bankers in re
mote sections Secretary McAdoo will
carefully consider the results of his
extensive inquiry.
Whether the Civic 'Council of
Churches will direct that legal meth
ods be proceeded with to compel the
closing of all places of business on
Sundays will probably be decided upon
at the meeting this evening in Zion
Lutheran Church.
The committee, which has toured
the town and found places that remain
open Sundays, is expected to report
at the meeting. According to the
original plan of the league, as an
nounced through its secretary, the
"moral suasion period" has terminated
and compulsory action is expected.
Doylestown, Pa., July 14. James

murder Linzi attempted suicide by
shooting. Linzi's hanging was the first

Lieutenant Porte Can
Complete Long Flight
New York, July 14.—The record
made on Saturday last by Reinhold
Boehm at Johnannisthal when he re
mained In the air for 24 hours and 12
minutes and flew a distance of 1,350
miles, has caused members of the
Aero Club to feel more confident than
ever that Lieut. Porte will accomplish
his proposed Atlantic flight in the air
boat America. Boehm used an ordi
nary biplane In his flight and the fact
that it was not equipped for an en
durance test is an indication accord
ing to Henry Woodhouse of the Aero
Club that the America with her spe
cial equipment will be able to carry
Lieut. Porte to the Azores without
mishap. The route to be followed by
Lieut. Porte to the Azores is 1,140
miles or some 210 miles less than the
distance covered by Boehm.

Harrisburger Tells How Bell Maps
District For Future
One of the leading articles In July
System is by a former Harrisburger,
T. T. CooK, son of Mervine A. Cook,
of Walnut street, and now editor o?
The Transmitter, the Bell Telephone
Company's publication issued twice a
month at Batimore. Mr. Cook's ar
ticle is "Making the Big Plan Work."
Among other things, in telling how
the telephone company plans for fu
ture growth in the population of the
communities served, Mr. Cook says:
"Does the company turn to a hand
book or two, a newspaper annual or
so, and figure out the average growth
for the last four or live generations;
and thus decide how big the place
will be in a few years hence? By no
means. It sends a corps of engineers
into the community. They study it,
district by district, house by house,
and business by business. Weeks and
some times months are consumed in
the job. When the work is done thrs<k
'commercial engineers' can tell you-3
from their maps and tabulations and
charts—anything you want to know
about the population of the commun
ity Ave, ten, evening twenty or thirty
years ahead. And their forecast must
be accurate, for on their calculations
the company depends in spending mil
lions of dollars in real estate and
"One of the newspapers of Rich
mond, Va., was deeply impressed re
