24 QGMT The following are4wo of the games SATURDAY,- MARCH 25. The event of the "week was the annual match between Oxford and Cambridge yesterday at the'British Chess Club. r It was expected, judging from the trial matches against the Metropolitan Clubs, that Cambridge would maintain their supremacy ; but it was a disappointment that there was not a closer fight. It is, however, gratifying to place on record that the utmost good feeling reigns between the victors and the vanquished. The players are thorough sportsmen, and behave as such. Mr. George, when resigning his game, cordially shook hands with his opponent, and Mr. Tattersall took his victory with becoming modesty. The same demeanour was noticeable on the other boards. The following is the score : - OXFORD. 1. A. H. W. George 0 2. A. P. Lacy Hulbert 0 5. G. EH. Ellis 0 4. F. Soddy. 0 5. F. A. Babcock.. 6. H Hilton 1 7. L. Gibbs 0 CAMBRIDGE. C. E. C.

Total. 1£ Total.,... 1 1 1 1 * 0 1 51 At 7.30 the teams dined with the members of the. British Chess Club. Sir George Newhes (President) being absent, owing to indisposition, Mr. Atherley-Jones, Q.C, M.P., was in the chair. After the loyal toasts Mr. Sidney Smith proposed "The Houses of Parliament," coupled with the names of Mr. H. Seton-Karr, M.P., and the Hon. H. V. Duncombe, M.P., and these gentlemen responded. "Literature and the Drama" was proposed in a humorous speech by Mr. J. A. Symmons, and responded to in similar strain by Mr. Cecil Raleigh. The Chairman, after expressing his regret at the absence of Sir George Newness proposed in felicitous terms the toast of the evening, " The Universities." This toast was coupled with the names of the ! two captains, Messrs. Fotheringham and George, both gentlemen replying. A letter from Sir George Newnes was then read by the chairman, Sir George requesting the announcement to be made that he intended to propose a national testimonial to Mr. J. H. Blackburne, who so worthily represented English chess for over thirty years in so many tournaments abroad and in this country. -The announcement was received with hearty cheers, and Mr. Blackburne acknowledged the honour done him. Mr. H. S. Newbolt proposed " The Chairman." This and Mr, Symmon's were the speeches of the evening. Considering the talent of the previous speakers, including Mr. Atherley-Jones, this is a high but thoroughly deserved compliment. If the after-dinner speeches were of a high order, they were almost, if not altogether, overshadowed by the display of talent of the gentlemen who contributed to the entertainment at the smoking concert. Special mention for their untiring efforts deserve Mr. J, L. Shine, Mr. Ponsonby, and above all Mr. J. M. Coward with his recitals on the m.ustel organ. This is a marvellous instrument--quite an orchestra in itself. Mr. Coward is a thorough artist, plays from memory, and seemed to enjoy the arduous task as much as the audience. The entertainment was the most successful in every respect of all those given on similar occasions : ; ' The following is a complete table of the matches played by Oxford and Cambridge up to date : OXFORD'S RECORD.
