AO A1KST ROEEBT FBASER, OF DUSDEE.
To the draughts editor of tho Glasgow Her
ald we are indebted for tho following:
Tuesday being the autumn holiday in
Dundee, Messrs. W. Taylor, II. Shearer, W.
White, A. Shearer and the Dundee cham
pion, Mr. R. Fraser, journeyed to Edinburgh
when the match with Mr. R. Jordan, the
Edinburgh champion, was definitely settled
ttr.d articles signed. The latter vary but
little from thosewhich governed the Mo-Kolvie-Scaright
match, and the well-known
expert. Mr. C Adamson. of Leven. was mu
tually selected roferee and stakeholder. As
we mentioned a few weeks ago. the contest
will be decided by tho uest of 20 games, and
the stake at issue is tho sum of 20. Play
commences at Dundee on Monday, tho lltli
ot November, and will be continued dally
till biought to a conclnsion.
ENGLISH CHAMPIONSHIP DISPUTE.
THE LONDON CHAMPION T.EFLIES TO GABDXEB,
OF LEEDS, AND JOHNSON, OF AMERICA.
Mr. Tescheliet, the champion of London,
in a letter to Mr. F. Dunne, draughts editor
tho Leeds Merctvy, gives his views or the
dispute as follows:
An to Mr. Christie' claim to the title, I wns
hopeful time Mr. Hill's lottor, which ap
peared in the various columns a short time
since, had laid the matter at rost. The facts
of the case have been fully stated, and your
remarks, Mr. Editor, in your last issue quite
supplemented thorn; and to that I nave
nothing to add. Moreover what are the ad
vantages of a challenge nlTalit Supposing
the holder held it auumbcr of years to wit,
the London championship would it create
as much interest as an anrual eventT Has
every player a stake of 25 or less to chal
lenge with? the title is worth that.
Jlr. Gardner tlares tho players of the '92
Tourney to rise up and deloud themselves.
Well, I as one do to.and champion the right,
too what I hold as right.
Fred Johnson, of the Cftronfcfe Telegrarh,
queries: "Why should Mr. Christie, who won
the title in the '91 tourney, be foiced to come
to London yearly at his own expense! Well,
why the other players for that matter! If
the tourne'y had been hold at Sunderland,
and "I found it inconvenient to enter. I
should havo to temain out. Suppose the
title was a challenge affair, and the holder a
resident in London, would Mr. Christie un
dertake the journey on the chance of win
ning or losing a heavy staket If so. why not
tor a tourncv, wnere tne entrance ico wonm
be the only loss the expense being the same
in both cases?
Mr. Johnson further admonishes. He
says: "Instead of holding veaily cham
pions, they should hold tournaments and
let tho winner play tho champion." Is it to
be contended for a moment that any player
would enter a tourney, play through tho
requisite number of rounds, and afterward
meet another who has every advantage in
Delngliesh, nnd whom he has to defeat be
lore he can gain the title? Never. It could
not be; the idea is absuid. Them's my sen
timents exactly. Francis Tescheliet.
A CHAMriON DRUMMER.
A QUIET STRANGER TLATS THE CHAMriON IN A
HOTEL, AND WINS EVERT GAME.
Alongside of the now Federal building on
Third avenue is located the Hotel Morris;
a drummer when in Pittsburg has been
doing the proprietor and patrons up badly.
A quiet stranger stopped to look at the game
between the landlord and one of his guest-,
and alter tho game was over was asked to
play. His quick method of playing, and the
easy way he won every game, convinced
them that they had founirat last the man to
defeat the drummei. On Saturday evening
the stranger was invited to come mound,
and the drummer was theie. After he had
won two straight from a pation of the hntol
the stranger and drummer were introduced
and s.it down to p av. The same quick
method of the strangor was followou, nnd in
a few minutes the stiangcr had won the that
game.an Alma; in the second came tho cham
pion opened tho Second double corner, but
the stianger went 9 14, and in a very few
moves the stranger wns lu hU king
low and the champion's game all
tbroke up, so that he never got a Uing. Tho
champion couiu not unuerstnnu now me
stranger could break up his game with such
apparent case. Alma wns again tried lor the
third game w lth tho same lesultas the fiist
two. Second double coi ner was again tried,
but to no batter purpose. Every timo the
men were set tho champion wns going to do
better. The . stranger never spoke but
looked at the boatd. But after the fifth
game, when tho champion could not under
stand why he could not win a game, the
stranger looked up with exasperating cooi-ne-sundsaid:
"If I was you I would look
lor a draw first." The onlookers, who had
been looking on with bated breath, now
gave way, and the champion lelt small. The
stranzer added there weio plnjers in Pitts
burg who could defeat him easily. This tho
drummer cannot credit, for the reason if the
stranger can be dofentod easily, where does
he as a player come in, lor he had played ten
games and was not able to secure even a
CHECKER NEWS IN BRIEF.
Mr. James Ogg, secretary of the Aberdeen
Draughts Club, was presented on October 10
with 14 volumes of prose and poetry, and his
wife with a fine china tea set ot 49 pieces, us
a mark oi the club's appicciatlon of his six
years' services as secretary of the club.
Willie Gardener, the Leeds expert, seems
to be tiring of his now love (Cassia), and le
turning to his old love (Dametli). He gave
an exhibition of his powers as a blindfold
player at Mot ley.whete he contested azuinst
six of the club's stiongest players simulta
neously, winning five, and one game was
drawn. Tho performance gave crcat satls

Seyeral Drilling Wells Shut Down in tne
Western Part of the Field-Some Pro

Reports From Elk Fork.
The talk in oil circles on the local "Wall
street yesterday was nearly all in regard to
the No. 5 Noble of Greenlee & Forst, in
the McDonald field, and about the reported
well at Elk Fork.eight miles east of Sisters
ville, in Tyler county, ."W. Va.
The No. C Noble of Greenlee & Forst is
a duster. It is located on the western belt
and only a short distance southwest of their
big well" on this farm, which came in several
months ago and led to the driUlng of a large
number of wells In that locality. The Noble
farm adjoins the Walker, on which some
good wells were drilled. Greenlee & Forst
got a duster Wednesday on the Noble farm
at their No. 3, which is only a few hundred
feet south of their No. 1.
Just south or No. 3 Noble, two wells are
being drilled by Batemen A Watson on a
portion of the WIttengalo farm. Tney are
their Nos. 2 and 3, nnd are down about 200
and 500 leet respectively.
On another part of the Wittlngale farm,
which is also south of the Itoble, the
Devorinan Oil Company had four wells
drilling, but since Gioenlee & Forst'sNo.TS
Noble came in dry, the Devorinan OlltCora
pany has shut down its No. 5 Wittengale,
which was down 500 feet and offset the No.
The Devonian Oil Company's No. 2 Witten
gale is down 2,000 feet: o. 3 is drilling at
1,400 fee , nnd No. 5 is down auont 1,600 teet.
Southwest or the Wittengale farm the Oak
dale Oil and Gas Company is putting the
small casing in the No. 2 on the Hopper
Drilling WcUs Shut Down.
The Devonian Oil Company has shutdown
its No. 10 on tho Elliott farm on account of
the dry holes on tbo Noble.
In the same pool the No. 7 Walker, of Fitz
gibbons & Co., is down 1,700 feet. It is north
east of the other wells.
The Moore Oil C mpanv's gas well, on tho
Oak Ridge property east or Oakdalc, has
been tested and showed a piessuie of 480
pounds to the minnto.
Brown, Robison & Co. expect to get tho
Gordon sand to-morrow at their No. 4, on
the McMurray property, which is located
lust east of Noblestown. They are looking
for oil in the fifth sand.
The Woodland Oil Company's No. 2 on the
Scott farm, which is located almost two
miles south of McDonald, is down 2,250 feet.
The oil in this region is found in the fifth,
sand and they do not expect to reach that
formation at less than 2.550 feet.
S. D. Robison's well on the Miller farm
nour" Witmoie station, on the Plttsbnrg
and Western Railroad, in the Undercllff
field, is through the 30-iootand dry in that
rock. It is due in the third sand to-day,
where oil is expected.
