K to K6 3. Kt to B5 mate (FROM OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.) COLOGNE, Hotel du Nord, August 18. The heat has been unbearable several days in succession. How the players could stand it, cooped up in the rooms without ventilation, is a puzzle. I have no doubt it affected their play to a great extent. Fortunately, they had two additional days'grace last week—on the Thursday, when Fritz played eight games blindfolded, and on Saturday, when the banquet took place. The ordeal of being photographed in a group was spared them until now, but the banquet had to come off. It was held at the "Flora" Gardens, a sort of miniature Kew Gardens, at the large Assembly Hill, which, with the profusion of flowers, shrubs, and palm-trees, is probably used as a winter garden. Fortunately it was a winter garden ; had it been a summc garden, we should have been roasted alive. Dr. Max Lange was in the chair, supported by the president of the Cologne Chess Club and the local notabilities, as well as a fair sprinkling of ladies—the latter, no doubt, attrae'ed by the splendid pyrotechnic display in the grounds for the evening. The tickets for the "dry" dinner were 4s. —the "dry " speeches being given in gratis. The " Haupt : ' Tournament and the minor tournaments concluded the day before yesterday, whilst the..Masters' Tournament will be.closed to-morrow with the .fifteenth and last round, provided there be no unfinished games. The Haupt Tournament was won by Pavelka, of Prague, after a tie match wiih a young Hungarian named B.itsmegyey. Herr Pavelka, the latest master now, is only twenty years of age. To-day the scores stand : Burn and Cohn and Tchigorin, 9^ each ; Charousek and Schlechter, S}4 each ; Showalter, 8; -Berger and Steinitz, 7}4 each; and Janowsky, 7. At the adjournment (one o'clock) only one game was finished, a draw between Schlechter and Popiel, consequently Schlechter is 9 points. Burn has the best .chance for the first prize ; he had the superior game with Fritz this morning, and has only Schallopp to play in the final round to-morrow. Tchigorin is engaged with Showalter to-day, and to-morrow with Steinitz, whilst Cohn, even if he should beat Albin to-day, has still a tough opponent to-morrow in Showalter. A tie, however, between two or three of the favourites is not out of the reckoning. Charousek has thrown away the first prize by losing with Berger yesterday. He had the better game, but left a piece e/i j>rise> whilst Janowsky, being late aiv hour and a quarter, made a violent but unsound attack and lost with Burn, thus b ' the latter's score up to Cohn's, who was leading all through.

In the course of a conversation which a Daily News correspondent had not so long ago with the departing American Ambassador, Mr. Hay told an interesting anecdote of the origin of "The Heathen Chinee." He and Bret Harte especially deiighted in the following lines from a chorus in " Atalanta in Calydon " : Who shall seek, who shall bring, And restore thee the day When the dove dipped her wing And the oars won their, way Where the narrowing Symplogades whiten the Straits of Propontia with spray? "The melody of that poem," said Mr. Hay, rang in Bret. Hartc's! ears and mind till he wrote 'The Heathen Ch'nee'in thatmea- j sure TELEGRAPHING WITHOUT WIRES. 1 ? 1Jri {lf. tll1e P a5 Jt few weeks some experiments have been made by the Wireless Telegraph Company with the Marconi system between the Royal yacht Osborne and Osborne House. Perfect signals are stated to have passed both ways during the whole ten days 01 the trial, no hitch occurring. Numerous messages passed between the Queen and. the Prince of Wales and between the 1 mice and a number of other members of the Royal Family and one or two Cabinet Ministers. Mr. Marconi had charge of the trials. Lvery morning a bulletin was sent to the Oueen by wireless telegraphy of the.condition of the Prince. Messages- also passed between the Duke and Duchess of York/and the Duke, who displayed great interest in the system while on board the yacht, paid several visits to the instrument room. The Prince of Wales lias presented Mr Marconi with a souvenir in the shape of a handsome scart pin, and wished him every success.
