*6 THE WESTMINSTER BUDGET OCTOBER 8, 18 7 We give below, in full,, the fnal score THE BERLIN CHESS TOURNAMENT, BY OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT. BERLIN (Hotel Wilhelmshof), October 4. An exciting finish was anticipated yesterday in chess circles. Everywhere the prospects of the favourites were discussed, and a bewildering combination of .results calculated. If Walbrodt lost with Albin, and Charousek lost with Tchigorin ; if Walbrodt beat Albin, and Charousek drew' with Tchigorin ; if Blackburne beat Janowski, . beat Tchigorin, beat Charousek, and Albin drew with Walbrodt, there would be three to tie for the first and second and third prizes. But similar combinations were indulged in about the other prizes. Under these conditions the final round commenced, but all speculations were upset as usual by the fact that Albin made Walbrodt a present of the game without a fight. Albin's conduct is beyond criticism, and the remarks that were made in the rooms were anything but flattering to the absentee. Poor Charousek got more excited through, this contretemps, and it influenced also Blackburne and Janowski very much, as may be imagined. Charousek, however, steadied himself at the earnest entreaty of some Iriends, and made a splendid fight with Tchigorin, for he was determined to bring his score up to W T albrodt's, so as to have at least a chance in a lie match to take his revenge. It must be admitted that Walbrodt was very lucky to retain his high position as first favourite. One illustration will suffice. Marco, for instance, has W .yi points, and divides the seventh prize ; whilst Walbrodt stands second with 14 points, of which 2 points were given him by Englisch and Albin. He is therefore only one actually played game ahead of Marco, and receives £75, and Marco only £3 ! Charousek defeated Tchigorin after six hours' play, and his victory is as popular as it is well deserved. He was complimented first by Tchigorin, and the attempt at an applause having been suppressed, he was heartily congratulated by a multitude of spectators, including even Walbrodt's well- wishers. Blackburne started with fair prospects, • but very nearly threw the game a-way. Janowski seized an opportunity of giving up his queen for two rooks and the attack, and Blackburne's prospects looked anything but bright at the adjournment. He recovered, however, afterwards, and now at eight o'clock Janowski offered a draw, which Blackburne declined, and the game stands adjourned. Alapin played his Own form of the French against Burn. It is a fine game, in which Alapin secured a draw by perpetual check; he could, however, continue with good prospects of a win with P to K6, but as he was placed with a draw, a loss deprived him of that honour. The game, is appended. Cohn also made a gallant fight with Schlechter, and this game is adjourned, and will be played out at nine o'clock, together with Blackburne's. If Schlechter wins he ties with Burn, and he has the best of i\ Winawer played a hard game with Zinkl, and won at 7.30 ; Caro tried for the Brilliancy Prize with Suchting, but, although he won, the combination may not stand analysis, and Suchting might have accepted with safety a sacrifice of rook, which looked, however, too dangerous. Schiffers lost with Teichmann in the niorning, this being the only game then finished. Pairing of the Final Round : Albin v. Walbrodt. Walbrodt won (forfeit). Charousek v. Tchigorin.

Gn Tuesday the Archduke Joseph, cousin of the Emperor d Austria, who resides in Hungary, assembled all his schoolfellows at the Royal Burgh at Buda. It was fifty years on Tuesday since the Archduke, whose father, the Palatine of Hungary, made him attend the public grammar-school, bade good-bye to his schoolfellows at its gates. Not very many who were in the same clas^ with him are still alive, but all those who are came at his bidding They went to Mass-first' of all, of course, and then partook of ? luncheon in the Archduke's Palace. They represent ( says-a-Zto/'A .News correspondent) almost all ranks in life, from a major- general to a saddler.
