Clipped From The Westminster Budget
2G THE WESTMINSTER BUDGE! OCTOBER 14, 189a SATURDAY, October 8. The preliminary meeting of delegates from the leading chess centres has been fixed for the 21st inst., when the outlines of the programme of the London International Tournament, 1899, will be discussed. It is, therefore, somewhat premature on the part of a section of the chess Press to indulge in criticism before the event, and to assume that the gentlemen who may be selected by the meeting of delegates to act as the organising committee of the Tournament will necessarily not take the best measures to secure its success. ; . It would be more in the interest of English chess and of the chess editors themselves if they would realise this and wait until there is something' tangible to criticise. The danger of premature criticism was well shown in connexion with the result of the prophecies of a section of the chess Press concerning the Vienna Tournament. The conduct of affairs will be in the hands of competent men, worthy of the confidence and support of the public—and we venture to predict that the support will be forthcoming. We have given the impetus to the movement, and the progress of it will be duly chronicled; in our columns. Irresponsible statements in certain quarters may be taken for what they are worth. r The new premises of the City of London Chess Club, the inauguration of which we noticed last week, are situated at 7, Grocers' Hall, Poultry, E.C. The Metropolitan Chess Club have removed to Kohler's Restaurant, Wool Exchange, 29-35, Coleman-street, E.C. The Lord Chief Justice, president, will honour the club with a visit on the 17th inst. Mr. Janowsky sails for New York by La Tonrahie on the 22nd inst. He will play a match with Mr, Show.alter. ior 750dols. a side, and afterwards visit the chess centres of the United States and Canada.

Instead of 11...Kt to Q2 we suggest 11...P to Kt5. If 12. P to B4, then 12...P to B3 ; if 12. B x P, then 12...Kt to Kt5 ; 13. B x Kt, B x B, with prospects of an attack for the Pawn minus. Even a move later, P to Kt5 would be preferable, because it leads to a number of interesting variations, Black getting elbow-room for his forces in any case. After the skirmish in the centre we are unable to suggest any valid remedy for Black. A game from the Association Meeting : E. Kemeny. White. 1. B to K4 2. Kt to KB3 ' 3. P to Q4 4. Kt to B3 5.

Black is not slow to avail himself of the opportunity for a King's side attack, White having blocked his game with' the Bishop's move; but the end need not haye been so sudden and violent by any means had he played still 9. B to K2.' After P to KR3 he could not save the game even if he had not captured the Knight. 10. Q to B3 would have been followed also by 10...BtoQ3. Here Danegger finishes the game prettily.
