Tbe Hackney Mercury announces its ninth
problem tourney for three-mover direct
mates under the usual conditions. The
pieces are limited to four (value aud color
optional) in addition to the two king. Throe
prizes are oflcred. Composors mav enter

order of merit. Entries to be sent to Chess

In the first installment of an essay on
duals by Mr. F. M.Xeed in a recent number
of the American Chess Monthly, he writes:
"A good chess problem is, so to speak, an
intermedium employed by tho composer to
exhibit to the solver in a striking anfrplear
ing manner tho powers of the pieces acting
lit combination. In order to seenre attentive
consideration a problem is usually placed
before the sorver unaccompanied by its
so'.ition, and if the defense can be so
played that mate can be lorced only by
using every attack designed by the com
poser the problem is sound; that is, it serves
Its purpose as a vehicle for the communica
tion of ideas, for In ordei: to comply with
the stipulation the solver must teoognlce
all the composer's designs or Ideas.
But if there be any attack lead
ing to mate as required, which
can be substituted tot a Use proposed

by the composer, that particular variation
becomes nnsound, for a solver may adopt
the optional attack and so fall to realize the
fnll merit aud beauty or the design, unless
it be present in another variation. It fol
lows then that a 'dual' cannot prossibly dis
count a problem by more than the value of
the Intended continuation, which lc may cut
out, and not even that, should tho idea be
equally well showu in a sound vailation.
To sum np the importanpe Of an optional
attack is determined by the value of what
it causes the solver to lose absolutely.
Hence, shonld a choice of attack be found
against a defense, which, in any event,
brings ont nothing or value, the 'dual' is of

CHICAGO CLUB VERSUS n. I. JACKSOST.
To the Checker Editor of The Dispatch:
In your department I find yon state H. I.
Jackson domanded his tee and dnes back
and left our club because he declined' to re
tract and npologize for his unbecoming lan
guage towaid a member. Allow me tore
late'tho true state ot things:
First H. I. Jackson npDlied the word liar
to Mr. J. T. Denvlr, which is strictly against
Second He accused J. Suwalskle (our
noted bov or 17 vears. nho beat this H.I.
, Jackson) of playing dishonestly, and le
( fleeted on the lad's good standing: that no
boy could beat him at cnecKeis; ana ne dia
not come to Chicago to be beaten by a boy.
Both case3 were reported to me. I diew
up the complaints and read publicly in our
cl ub.in the presence of H. I. Jackson. He ad
mitted the truth of tho same, but declined
to rotract or apologize. I gave him 15
minutes to consider his position, but ho still
declined. I toldhim the penalty would be ex
pulsion, ne said: "Very well, but
give me iny fees back," which 1 did, to save
necessity of calling a meeting to vote him
out, this being tho first case of the kind
since tho club's origination.

The following interesting game we take
from tbe Glasgow Herald. It cannot fall to
be Interesting, considering that one of the
contestants was blind.
Most of tbe experienced checkerists in
Glasgow have seen, or at least heard of, Mr.
William Bennett, the blind draught-player,
and many have found him no mean loeman
across the checkered board. He has for
some three years back, however, been exer
cising his abilities as a draught-player in a
new role namely, conducting games by
correspondence with an opponent in Can
ada. But we will leave Mr. Bennett to tell
his story in his own graphio way:
'Some three years ago (writes Mr. Ben
nett) I received a letter irotn Mr. D. Stewart,
a Glasgow gentleman, who took a farm in
Manltooa, stating that Mr. H. Norman, or
Winnipeg, wished toplay a match of four
games at draughts with mv. As I bad often
plaved with Mr. Stewart in Glasgow, to keep
up correspondence with him I agreed to
play a match with Mr. Norman. After
nearly three years play the match has just
been finished, the four games ending in
draws. As I believe there bave been few
matches played at so great adlstance.I send
you one or the gamos the Bristol as thero
is not much book play in it."
