Interest In the Wouinu's Interna
tional Chess Tournament.
Mr. Hnrry N. Pillsbury, of New York,
the great chess champion, is in Wash
ington. Ho came here at the request of Bcpre
Beutative Pearson, of North Carolina, who
had telegraphed him an invitation to ace
as coach to the House of Repre.sentati es
team, which will play in the cable chess
match with the British House of Commons.
Mr. Pillsbury, besides being one or the
greatest exponents of the game living, lias
met personal! and played witli many of
the best players of the House of Commons,
and for this reason any assistance that
be mayglve to the American team, will
be of the greatest value during the match.
He is daily imparting to them such of
his knowledge of the science of the game
as has been instrumental in placing him
in the foremost rank of the greatest Cjiess
masters of his time.
lie has met Lasker, Tschegorin, Steinitz,
and llerr Tarrasch, the greatest of con
temporary chess players, and has played in
most of the large tournaments of the last
decade, at St. Petersburg, Hastings, and
Vienna. He was a participant in the last
international tournament, at St. Peters
burp, Russia, Jauuary 27, 1.S96, and played
against Lasker, Steinitz, and Tschegorin.
He is not yet thirty years of age, and the
marvelous skill with which he handles
his chessmen has excited worldwide won
der and admiration.
Champion Pillsbury was seen at the Con
gressional Hotel yesterday by a Times
reporter, mid was asked about his future
plan. He said he expected to participate
inthcnextlnternatioual tournament, which
will he held in Berlin, this year He said,
though, that there was some talk in
Berlin that it would not be held until next
year. At any rate,- he said he would take
part in it. The Emperor of Gcnniny. who
Is a lover of the game, will give a valuable
trophy to the winner in this tournament.
Mr Pillsbury Is at present most deeply
interested in ttic woman's internatJon l
chess tournament that will be held at the
Hotel Cecil, London, about the 22d of
next June, and while he is here, he soil,
It is likely that hu will give a simultanj.Ms
blindfold exhibition , playing chess against
eight players at once without seeing the
board, the proceeds to be used in securing
a prize fund for the coining woman's tour
nament. Mr Pillsbury has undertaken to donate
a prize fund of 30 to be given as the sec
"If arrangements can be made to have
a simultaneous game here," he said, "I
am very anxious to play It here, but if
the arrangements cannot be made, it Is
likely that the game will be given in some
Be will sail from New Vork for Eng'and
on June 10, and be present at the first
international woman's tournament.
"The tournament," he said, "promises to
be the next great event in the world of
chess, and has been gotten up by the
London Ladies' Chess Club. It has a
membership of 1,120 ladles, many of them
great players, and has only been organized
about two years. They have their own
parlors, and meet tri-weekly, ns is the
custom of most London clubs. Lady George
Newones, wife of Sir George Newonss,
v.'bo has donated several international chess
trophies, is president; Mrs. Roda A. Bov-les,
wife of U. L. Bowles, of the Metropolitan
Chess Club of London, Is secretary; and
the coming tournament is largely due to
licr energic efforts ami enthusiasm She
is also the team captain."
"Several American ladies will paitici
patp, notablj Mrs. Harriett Worrell, but
who the others will be is not definitely
known Lady Thomas, who is the wife
of Sir John Thomas, and who won the
first prize at tlio Hastings tournament,
will probably play, and 1 shouldn't le
surprised if several of the foremost lady
players of Australia are present
"The Germans will very likely be rep
resented by one of the Duchesses of
Mecklenburg-, and by Frau Tarrasch, wife
of the great German chess player. Among

Mr. riilsbury sald,-in referring to the
coming cable chess match with the House
or Commons, that it liatt already aroused
a greattf eal ofintereBtlrithegame through
out the country. "Lsam quite sure," he
added, "that chess Is becoming dnllymore
and more popular. n this respect the
proposed game lias awakened an Interest
somewhat similar to that maintained in
Franco by the famousCafe dela Regencc.lu
Taris. It was here that Louis Bonaparte,
when a lieutenant of artllley, played, and
every chess player that visits Paris
naturally seeks to piny on the original
board that was used by him, and which is
there exhibited. The cafe is visited by
large crowds, and any afternoon after
3:30 o'clock, aged Theodore Tilton, the
famous journalist, Is regularly seen deeply
interested in the game."

has the matter in charge, has been on a "Visit

Henderson, and McbM-s.Foute.Shauuuii, and
Bennett, of New Yoik.
It Is stated on good authority that the
team will be Messrs. Sharroth, Handy,
Pearson, and Bodlne.
It is also said that many or the chess
players or the Houf-e or Representatives
are unwilling to manifest an interest in
the game, as it may be greatly to their
disadvantage in the Judgment of thefr
constituencies at future elections. The
game, if postponed, will be played on a
