26 THE WEb 1 M JNSTER BUDGET SEPTEMBER 16, 1393 e SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10. Until next week, -when the tournament under ihe auspices of th Southern Counties Chess Union will have begun at Salisbury, we shall have to rely still.upon games u made in Germany." There is, however, the consolation that these chess products are more acceptable than other commodities derived from the same source. No chess Czar having intimated his desire of joining the Salvation Army yet, certain chess editors whose imagination is confined to the sixty- four squares had to rely during the u silly" season to copying with unscrupulous impartiality matter supplied by the Westminster Gazette, the Field, and the standard, these papers alone having been represented at Vienna 1 ^ 1 • and Cologne. Nobody would grudge chess editors at their wits'end (if any) the use of the paste-pot if they had only the common courtesy to acknowledge the papers to which they are indebted for the supply of the games and news of important chess events. Our notice in our last issue of a proposed international tournament in London has received immediate and liberal response from Captain Beaumont, as shown in the iollowing letter ; DEAR SIR,— I have just seen the Westminster ^Gazette of yesterday, and quite agree with you that Tournament came off in London. it is now time that another As I was instrumental in starting the last big Chess one, held in 1883, I shall be very glad to help the coming one of. 1899 by subscribing * * t As a Vice-President of the British Chess Club As President of the Surrey Counties Chess Association As President of the South Nohvood Chess Club ... In all £50. » * * £25 £20 £5 1 I feel sure that with Sir George Newnes as president and Mr. Hoffer as one of the working committee the money required will be quickly forthcoming, and that the chess tournament itself cannot fail to be a success. Very sincerely yours, , ALEX. S. BEAUMONT. South Norwood Park, September 4, 1898. The City of London Chess Club are early in the field with the following programme for the winter season : ... 1 The championship competition and handicap tournaments for members of the first to the tenth class will commence in October.
