LATEST DOINGS IN SPORTDOM—HARRISBURG STARTS SERIES AT TORONTO TODAY
IE EDS PUCE FOB EIRE* PRACTICE Manager Carrington Finds Trouble in Locating Suitable Site For Eli Squad Special to The Telegraph New Haven, Conn., July 31.—Plans for the actual practice of the Yale football elerven—practice, that is, prior to the opening of college—have been perfected by Frank Hinkey, the head coach, and by the manager of the eveven. Carrington appears to be in a bad way as to selection of a piace for early season quarters. Usually the team baa gone to Mad ison, but this Fall some other site will be secured. Manager Carrington and his staff, as reported, have been spend ing considerable tims going over sug gested resorts. The trouble has been that no one piace contains every de sired factor. There must be first of all a suitable playing field and after that satisfactory quarters for the men and carefully prepared food. Laurel Beach was the place which came nearest to meeting the demands of the football authorities. There were suitable hotel accommodations and a fine playing field. Plans to go there, however, went awry when it was found that the owner of the ath letic field declined to have the turf torn up by the cleats of the football players. Nor was he open to argu ment. Laurel Beach thus eliminated, Branford Point has suggested itself. Here it was that the Columbia eleven used to come before they played Yale, the squad putting up at a hotel whose accommodations and cuisine used to be and probably are to-day, all that athletes could desire. Just now no serious objection to the point has been raised. Sell White Hackle Colt For Record Cash Price Special to The Telegraph New York, July 31.—John E.

San Francisco Hears Bell Was Dynamited By Associated Press San Francisco, July 31.—The first hoax that has involved the Liberty I Bell since it started on its Western j trip from Independence Hall, at Phil adelphia, came to-day when some per son started the wild rumor that a stick of dynamite had been thrown at the Bell. Of course, it was a false report, but it spread with immense rapidity, and exposition officials and newspaper of fices were besieged with injuries about the matter. The hoax developed one fact and that is that Captain Carpenter, who is in direct charge of all the exposition guards, is a native of Pennsylvania, and formerly resided at Philadelphia. He looks upon the Liberty Bell not only as a great emblem of liberty, but i also as something from "back home," [and for that reason he is doubly sure to see it has all the protection that can possibly be given. The Liberty Bell continues to at tract the admiration of the exposition visitors, many thousand visiting the Pennsylvania building each day. Among the visitors to-day was "Bll : ly" Sunday, the evangelist, who is i here to aid in driving satan from the Western shore.
