a view of continuing with K B to K 1 or Q 1
was more to the point.

No. 254. For a problem without a Q this is
good. Tho key-move is easy, but the aftei
play quite difficult.
No. 255. This was probably composed by a
bezinner. I think a white P at K 2 would
have made tho Kt at K 1 unnecessary and
saved the dual after Kt moves. The pawns
at R 2 and R 7 are unnecessary. WooDAnn.

CORRESPONDENCE OF THE DISPATCH.l
Glasgow, Nov. 1. Undor the auspices of
the Glasgow West Lothian and Fifeshiie
Draughts Associations, an Important meet
ing of draught players was held in the rooms
of the Southside Club, Paisley road, on Sat
urday afternoon to consider tho question of
promoting a grand national draughts tour
nament, open to Scotland. Theio was a fair
attendance on Sntuiday, delegates being
present from the St. George's. Cathcait, ic
toria, Southsido and Govan clubs.
Mr. Robert McCull was calledupon to pre
side, and in briefly introducing the business,
lerened to the fact that tho English players
had held two most successful tournaments
withinacouploofycais. There was noth
ing, he thought, to prevent tho Scottish
draught playeis holding quito as successful
a mooting; and as somo body or other had
to take the initiative In such an affair, it
could not perhaps be in better hands than
that of the Glasgow Association. Mr. D. G.
McKelvio formall vmoved thata toui nauient
bo held early in 193, and that tho cntiy
money lor competitors bo 10s. This was
unanimously agreed to, and tho following
committee, with power to add to their num
ber, was theieupon appointed: Tiesident,
Mr. R. McCnll; Vice Piesldents, Messrs. J.
K. Nasmyth and L. Gllbeitson; Honorary
Secretni y and Treasuier, Mr. D. McCallum;
with two members f i om each of the clubs
already mentioned. It was submitted to the
Chairman and Secretary to drawupiules
for the tourney. On the sugjestion of tho
Chairman, it was agreed that play in tho
tourney should begin on Monday, 2d Janu
ary, and be continued daily; that tho hours
of play should be fiom 11 A. is. to 3 r. M., and
5 till 9 in the evening; but that to buit coun
try competitors thoie should be no eveninir
sitting Saturday should tho tourney extend
over the week. It was also agieed that tho
first piize should not be less than 20, with
second, third and fourth of proportionate
value. Befoio the meeting sepaiatcd sub
scriptions to the tourney lund to the
amount of over X15 were intimated The
draught rules, it was decided, should be final
ly considered and passod at a meeting to be
held on Wednesday, IGth inst. A vote of
thanks to tho Cbaiiman tei initiated the pro
ceedings. Judging from tho number of entries
spoken of on Saturdny tho delegate of tho
St, George's said there would likely be half
a dozen .from his club alone the tourna

The following is a copy of the rules as pro

A meeting is to bo held on Wednesday, IGth
inst., to consider any amendments; these

LATE CHECKER NEWS IN BRIEF.
The Chelsea ttandnrd on November 11
started a checker department under tho
management of B. B. Turnbull. Judging
from Its initial number, it is a welcome ad
dition.and Mr. Turnbull has our best wishes
for success in the checker field.
Wonder what grounds J. B. Ferguson (and
others, too, for that matter) has for affixing
"Ex-Champion of America" to J. P. Reed's
name? He fttll retains the title. H. F. Mc
Atcer, in CArom'cZe Tclejrnph.
Not later than last week we saw a very
favorable answer to the above in the hands
of one of the leading players of Pittsburg
commenting on Mr. Reed's statement that
Pittsburg was in fourth place as a checker
pluylng city In America. This authority
ad it was true in regard to Reed himselt,
lie was only in fourth place in the following
order: Freeman, Ilcffnor, Baiker and Reed.
The records or these players place them
ahead of Reed, and aie our gi ounds for nam
ing Mr. Reed ex-champion of America. He
never was champion of any place else and
anything to the contrary is "exclusively"
believed by Mr. Reed and Mr. II. F. McAteer.
Mr. James Hill has issued a supplement to
his synopsis which contains Anderson's
standard laws or the game, theory of the
move with illustrations, and some new
games. Mr. Hill will lorward the supple
ment to all who nave leceived the book, on
leceipt or stamps to defray postage.
Mr. Binhart, of Shaner's station,and Mr. J.
L. Rae, or Buona Vista, will be on hand on
Auanusgivmg, ana may enter the tourna
ment. The editor of this department has re
signed the office of Secretary of the Penn
sylvania State Checker Association, and also
withdrawiifiom membership. Theieasons
are private, and would interest no one.
