42 THE WESTMINSTER BUDGET JUNE 18, 1897" v The English allies starling with the Vienna Opening, lapsed into the Fo„ Knights Game, and the driest pf the dryforms of it. The late hour-1 PROBLEM No. 59. By Captain. A. S. Beaumont. BLACK. - WHITE. White to play and. urate -in two moves. SOLUTION OF PROBIJEM No*- 58. 1. Q to K6, any moV'e;^. R.(JK3) or Kt mates. A handsome and valuable work of art has been offered to the Daily Telegraph Shilling Branch of the Prince of WalesV HospitalsJvund by Messrs. S. Weingottand Son, 83, Fleet-street. The trophy is a replica of the statue of her Majesty which stands on the Thames Embankment, at Blackfriars Bridge. The statuette is carved from a flawless block of meerschaum, meerschaum, the Queen leaning oh a pedestal, upon which a bowl has been fixed, and two flexible tubes attached to the ebony pedestal of the statuette transform it into a narghile for the use of two persons. Sir Edward Lawson suggested that the trophy, value £60, should be offered for competition amongst the Metropolitan Chess Clubs, at a nominal eptrance fee, the proceeds to be devoted to the Prince of^Wales's Hospital Fund. The proposal proposal will be discussed by one of the leading clubs, or a committee of representatives of ^Metropolitan clubs. The donors willing to add a second prize, and probably a third, if the scheme can be carried out. The final match in the Beaumont Cup Competition (Surrey Minor Trophy), between Richmond and Croydo^ was played at the rooms of the City of London Chess Club, Richmond wimrmg the match after a keen struggle by four games to two. T.he cup will therefore be held during the ensuing season by the Richmond Chess Club. ' Tchigorin won his match with Schiffers, at St. Petersburg, by seven games to one, and six draws. ' The following is the Consultation Game played by cable between the House of Commons and the House of Representatives, Washington, on the occasion of the recent cable match.

All complications and the establishment of White's centre are avoided, and as in this instance Black can force exchange ofvpieces and so bring it to an easy erid' game. If White could'have advanced 10. P to Q5 hie would have had the advantage, but this manoeuvre is not feasible because of 10... Bto Kt5ch ; 11. Kto K2(if 11. K to Bsq, then 11... Castles QR and wins), Q to Q5; 12. QxQ, Kt x Q ch ; 13. K to Q3, B to B4 with the better game. Another line of play would have been later on 12. B to Q2 instead ot 12. B to B4, as the latter move compelled another exchange. Atterwards the game drilted into a drawn ending with many interesting phases, Mr. Jacobs ingeniously getting the two centre pawns advanced, hemming in White's king completely. Mr. Trenchard made a finalbid fora draw by doubling rooks on the eighth row, followed by 42. Kt to K5 ch. The knight could not be taken, because of perpetual check ; but Black brought the king into safe quarters, and won. If instead of 42. Kt to K5 ch, White had played 42. R (B8) to B8 ch, then 42....K to Q3 • 43. R to Kt6 ch, K to Q2 ; 44. Kt to B6 ch, K to B3, which wins also, as in one_ variation Black sacrifices the rook to escape perpetual check. The ending is an interesting study. + PREPARING FOR THE NAVAL REVIEW. The Admiralty having decided that the battleships should leave Chatham in advance of the cruisers and smaller vessels for the naval review at Spithead, the Empress of India, Captain Charles Campbell,, with a complement oi 712 officers and men, and the Repulse, Captain Ernest N. Rolfe, similarly manned, steamed out of..North and South Locks respectively early the other morning, and passed down the Medway to Sheerness to complete their preparations. preparations. + "+" POOR LORD MAYOR! c , T .^ e horsemanship and endurance of the Lord Mayor and bhentts will undergo a severe ordeal during the Procession. They not only ride from Temple Bar across London Bridge, but as-soon as the Surrey side is reached the. Lord Mayor and Sheriffs and the Deputation will form alongside the Royal route, and wait for the Procession to pass, the Lord Mayor previously taking leave of her Majesty. He will have to wait until the whole Procession has gone by, and it will take an hour and" a-half for it to pass any given point. For an hour and a half, therefore, the Lord Mayor, seated on his horse, wearing his official robes, holding the Sword of State, and attended by the Sheriffs and Deputation, will have to sit like a Life Guardsman at the Horse Guards until the Procession has defiled before him, and then he will have to return to the Mansion House, which will be no doubt less difficult than,might be supposed, as of course every arrangement will be made to facilitate his passage.
