24 THE WESTMINSTER BUDGET JUNE 16, 1899 a .• SATURDAY, JUNE 10. "1. ii l The leaders are still keeping close together,.._atid- Lasker, in spite of his unsatisfactory beginning-, is only half a point behind Janowsky, Pillsbury, and Maroczy. Taking a survey of their play so far, it is only fair to mention that Janowsky is fully entitled to his place. His victories are all gained by superiority of skill and originality; He has been less favoured by chance than Pillsbury, who in at least three instances achieved unexpected results, viz., with Teichmann, Schlechter, and Mason. Pillsbury, of course, bent upon winning, runs frequently more risks than any other of the competitors. The following is the result of the eighth round : 1 £ Lee v. Tinsley 0 1 Bird v. Tchigorin Cohn v. Mason l o 1 Schlechterv. Blackburne 0 0 Showalter v. Lasker r 1 Pillsbury v. Steinitz 1 0 1 Maroczy v. Teichmann 0 Janowsky (a bye). w J Cohn had a very hard fight with Mason, and riot less so Showalter with Lasker. 9 a i. The interesting games in this round were Bird v. Tchigorin, a lively Eyans Gambit, Tchigorin playing in his best lorm, and Pillsbury by disorganising Steinitz's game in the smartest possible style. These two games are appended : EVANS GAMBIT. H. E.

Ktto Q5 THE FASCINATIONS OF CHESS. • The Lord Chief Justice, in a speech last week at the annual dinner of the Metropolitan Chess Restaurant, Coleman-street, proposing Club, held at Kohler's "Success to the Metropolitan Chess Club," said that his own connexion with chess went back to ancient history, and there were not many present who could recall the time when he took a chief part, as one of the backers of Anderssen, in bringing abput bis celebrated match with Steinitz, the match that first brought Steinitz into great prominence, lie had been a member of the old Westminster Chess Club, and a ftequent visitor to that focus of chess, Simpson's Divan. The Metropolitan Chess Club had only recently come into existence. The club had not yet produced a champion of the world, but he hoped that it would do so. It had by its energetic policy introduced life into the dry bones of many clubs, and might claim to have given fresh impulse to the cultivation of chess. He thought that it was not creditable to the British Empire that it had not produced a champion of the world. In the sixties he had been intimately connected with a brilliant group of players, such as could scarcely be equalled in England now, namely, De Vere, who died before he had reached the full stature of his ability; Boden, Barnes, and Bird, who was then in his prime. He recollected Buckle, the author of " The History of the World," and had often played with him at the Divan, receiving fearful odds and fearfui defeats ; but the most brilliant player by far whom he had ever seen was Morph'y. Chess was an interesting game for players and onlookers, but it was not a good thing for men who had serious purposes in life to give up much of their time to chess. He remembered many men whose brilliant gifts. might have been exercised in wider fields but for their devotion to chess. It was, however, a game that kept the 1 hinges of the mind well oiled, that led to many friendshipsj and was also consistent with the noble and honourable aspirations of life. (Cheers.)
