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. Mad
den has disposed of his 2-year-old
White Hackle for $20,000 cash and 25
per cent, of the Futurity purse, in case
the colt is fortunate enough to cap
ture that classic. Mr. Madden re
fused to reveal the name of the pur
chaser.
The price paid is a record-breaker,
considering the status of the racing|
game. White Hackle won his last two!
starts with such ridiculous ease that I
he was immediately proclaimed the
star of this season's youngsters. White
Hackle is.a son of the great Star Shoot
out of Mary Talbott, and is a big. up
standing. flashy chestnut and runs
close to the ground, which stamps him
as a real racer.

Waits Big Cash Offer

For a long time Frank Gotch had
everything his own way. Then came
some hard propositions and the big
feliow while not losing his title, was
in fear he would meet his Waterloo.
He retired to his farm, and now
makes the announcement that he will
leave his plough to tackle any wrestler
in the world —providing he gets what
he wants in a cash offer. His price
is something like $35,000. He wants
to buy another farm.

| Lee Axworthy Wins Race;
Sets New Detroit Record
Special to The Telegraph
Detroit, Mich., July 31. Lee Ax
worthy, owned by the Pastime Stables,
of Cleveland, and driven by William'
Andrews, yesterday afternoon won the
twenty-sixth renewal of the mer-1
chants' and manufacturers' SIO,OOOI
stake from the greatest field of trotters
which ever faced the starter in this |
classic.
Raised from the 2:24 to the 2:OS j
i class, the stake brought out a dozen of
| the best ones in training, but Lee Ax-1
.worthy outfooted the lot and took thel
| race in straight heats. Incidentally, j
j he had a new record of 2:04% for the
| stake to beat Peter Scott who was the
j chief contender all the way.
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.

Davis announces a headliner of an
other type for next week that he ex
pects to he fully as great a hit as the
Desvol act. The act will be a farce
comedy sketch entitled "The Battle of

comedy offering of more than ordinary
merit. Four other standard acts will

the preceding ones, has been arranged

IDLE DAYS HELP
■I IN RICE
Indians Start Crucial Series at To
ronto Today; Play Buffalo
Next Week
Idle days have been beneficial to the
Montreal team. The Royals are again
dangerously near the Indians. Har
risburg starts a crucial series at Tor-1
onto to-day. One game will be played
this afternoon and two on Monday.
Toronto has a big celebration on Mon
day, and games will be played morn
ing and afternoon.
Manager Eddie Zimmerman is anx
ious to win two out of the three g&mes
from the Maple Leaves. Next week
the Indians play Buffalo. These games
are of importance in view of the fact
that the Bisons are not far in the
lead of Harrisburg. Winning a ma
jority of the battles at Buffalo wauld
put "Zimmy's" bunch in good posi
tion for a gerat finish.
