PORTO RICO for obvious reasons produces tobacco of vary
ing degrees of excellence. The bad impression caused
originally by careless cultivation and manufacture of the
tobacco, due to inexperience, has now been dispelled, and those
smokers who desire a cigar with more aroma than the flat-tasting
domestic cigar unmixed wi-h Havana, and still lacking the
overpowering heaviness of the latter, at a reasonable price, find
their choice in the Porto Rican cigars. For this reason it is
smoked in offices during business hours with every sense of
satisfaction by many in whose estimation Cuban cigars hold
first place for quality, and that portion of the general public
which is frugal on this item of expenditure finds it a good substi
tute for high-priced Havanas. Albert A. Void in New York Sun

It appears, however, there are
certain errors that are absolutely
unavoidable, in transmission of
moves, etc., that are liable to hap
pen in a game by correspondence.
For some of these the side making
them are responsible, for others
are not. In the early part of the
game Hilo was allowed on different
occasions to correct moves for two
or three moves back, but Honolulu
never raised any question as to
whether Hilo was responsible or
not, it being a purely friendly
game,, with nothing at stake, they
allowed it to pass without question.
A week or two ago a mistake was
made detrimental to Honolulu, a
mistake altogether incidental to
correspondence chess, and impos
sible to happen over the board, but
this was one of the mistakes (a
wrong setting of the position when
replying to a move) that the party
making it is responsible for by the
rules. The mistake was explained
to Honolulu, and in view of the
was either the fault of the Hono
lulu Club or a mistake in transmis
sion. The second is sufficiently ex
plained by the following copies of
telegrams on file in the Hilo office
of tlie Wireless Company:

Honolulu, in replying to our move
of August 25th, should have re
peated the last syllable "noli," and
not "tofi," as they made it. "Tofi"
would have been n disastrous move
for us, and was the move they de
sired us to make. Honolulu hav
ing made the change of words we
were compelled to stop the game
until the mistake had been cor
rected. These are "the difTerent oc
casions" on which, it is asserted,
Hilo was allowed to "correct moves
for several moves back, etc." As
a matter of fact Hilo never changed
one of its moves; never asked to be
allowed to do so; and would not
have done so even if it had been
permitted by the "courtesy" of the
Honolulu Club, for it is distinctly
contrary to the first principle of the
3rd. As to the last of this series
of mistakes by the Honolulu Club,
which cost them the "A" game, it
was an error, not of transmission or
interpretation (which we would
have promptly allowed them to
rectify), but of setting up the pieces
on the board a mistake which it is
difficult to imagine could have been
committed by a number of players
contending for the honor of their
As to the statement that "Hilo
did not offer to extend this courtesy
(of taking back moves), whereupon
Honolulu resigned both of the
games," the inference is that we
had received a number of similar
"courtesies" from the Honolulu 1
Club, and refused to reciprocate.
