Lddkoeping, Oct. 2. 1817 and died at the castle of Leckoe Aug. 23, 1901. Story of Wennerberff. ' In a memorial of the popular Swede, Dr. Victor Nilsson writes as follows: Gunnar Wennerberg, statesman, poet and composer, has endeared himself to the hearts of all Swedish speaking people of his own generation, and of ages to come, through the wealth of lyrlo songs, musical dialogues, national hymns and sacred musio by which he has enriched the literature and musical art of his country. Inspired singer and poet, he wedded his poetry to melody in such a fashion as to make of them one enchanting unit of tuneful song, iTow stately and pathetic or jubilant, now sprightly humorous, sometimes with a tinge of sadness, striking to the very depths of the national Swedish temperament. Gun nar Wennerberg was the very incarnation of the Swedish student and Swedish student song, and he personally did a great deal, and his compositions still more, towards the con quest of an international fame for Swedish quartet or chorus singing. Educator and statesman, he was as a musician a self-made man who could give only his spare time to music. This is the reason why he could not attain to the rank of an International composer of the flrst order. Gunnar Wennerberg servd ac a university tutor at Upsala, 1846-1849; as a college pro fessor at Skara, 1849-1860; as a chief of the government's educational bureau at Stock holm, 1860-1870; as governor of a province at Vexioe, 1875-888, and as a member of the cabinet, with the portfolio of church and education, 1870-1875 and 1888-1891. The inti mate friend of two successive kings, he lived and died the Idol of his country's college youth and beloved by the nation. The Memorial Program.

Tietgen, who suc cumbed at Copenhagen a fortnight ago, Denmark loses her most.valuable citizen. In f the world of finance and industry he was a genius, the strongest man in the country. He ruled Denmark's banking, organized the Great Northern Telegraph company, the United Steamship company, constructed the famous free port in Copenhagen, built the eplendid marble l church and promoted numerous enter prises. His aim was not for wealth, and with all' his power and ability he nevar be came rich, although he could have amassed the greatest fortune. Power he loved, however. His mind was acute, and the man was resourceful as well as a prodigious worker. As a Bpeaker Tietgen ranked „ high, for his mind was brilliant. bis speech eloquent and his fund of In formation great. In argument he was . Irresistibly convincing. Wherever he ap peared it waa as a man of distinction. All Tletgen's labors were for his country, and Denmark Tor his work may well be called great, notwithstanding her dimin utive size. THE CONSULAR .QUESTION Imiiurtaut Sleetlnar of the Xorweniun Ministry on Oct. SO. An important meeting of the Nor wegian ministry was held in Christiania Oct. 20, the members of the council of state in Stockholm being summoned to attend. Just what transpired is not fully known, but it was given out that the cabinet meeting was for the purpose of conference on the financial debate now under way in Norwegian storthing. It is believed that considerable attention was given at the conference to the re quest of the storthing for a report on the status of the demand for a separate consular service for Norway. It is a mat ter that the government can not very well Ignore. The opinion seems to be that the Swedish and Norwegian governments have reached a confidential understanding. While the proposed law may be modified somewhat there is reason to believe that it will eventuallr be sanctioned. i : . , THE DUTY TOBACCO . .? \urnesiun Dewier* Surprised by Its ._.; Increase. .;.' ,' Dealers ;in tobacco la Norway ' were taken wholly unawares by the increase in the duty on tobacco, ag the action of the government was unexpected. The import ers lost no time in taking their wares out of bond at the old rates. There were 1,800,000 kroner worth of tobacco in the warehouses, and j one firm cleared about $27,000.- . . . The steamer Arkansas arrived just one day too late, and the cargo of tobacco had to pay 240,000 kroner to the custom houses instead of 177,000 kroner. The dealers, both ' wholesale. and .- retail, will profit by the action of the government, as they are stocked for at least six months and will sell their old stocks with the In creased duty added. "■•• ' ' ' I It is believed that the high tobacco itariff will stimulate the cultivation of tobacco In Norway. Tobacco has been raised for fifteen years in Sogn. It is poor tobacco and, is used . only in the v very cheapest cigars and in smoking tobacco, but it is believed that with proper culture and especially proper care a much better grade may be produced.

Could any of our readers play the black any better? Mr. Fry of Winnipeg was in the city last ■week. He played only one drawn game with Mr. Titus and left 1 in a run for the train. Mr. Fry has the reputation of being one of the strong players in Winnipeg. A gentleman from Bathgate, Scotland, con tested four games and lost all on very close endings with Mr. Titus last week. Mr. Doran of Washington is in town; has drawn several games with Faulkner, Davis, Titue and Kehoe, but up to date has not won from any of the best local players. Whether the so-called Chicago Fife is to get a place as an official opening cannot be deter mined by an argument. It is formed this way: 11-16, 23-19, 9-14, 22-17, 5-9, 17-13, then 15-18 instead of 14-18, 1-5 or 8-11. An analy sis of this 15-18 move has Just been completed in the Newark Call, which has given the play on 15-18 in a hundred and fifty variations and more. The editor of the checker column in that paper dodges responsibility by asking for the opinion of the critios. The compilers of the play, Gilday, Welen and Wendemuth shoulder the responsibility as follows: "This completes the analysis on the Chicago Fife. We intend to give more play on several vari ations, but we believe we have already sub mitted enough to demonstrate that the 15-18 line instead of being a loss is perfectly sound and gives black a good game." Chess Edited by P. N. Stacy. The Hurry-Pillnbnry Match. It remains for a second Boston player, John P. Barry, to question the title of Amer ican chess champion, which for six years has been held by the famous Bostonian, Harry N. Pillsbury. Barry has challenged Pillsbury to a match aud the latter has ac cepted. The match will be played under the auspices of the Boston Athletic Association, in about sixty days, after Mr. Pillsbury con cludes his western exhibition tour and be fore he sails for his European, tour, Jan. 2G. The terms of the match are: The man who first wlnß seven games shall be de clared victor and entitled to the stakes of $2,000 and the title of chess champion of America; the time limit being fifteen moves per hour and four games a week. John P. Barry, the challenger, is well known to the chess world) for his well-earned I success in winning five and drawing the ! sixth of the six games which he has played I in the annual cable chess match between the : United States and England. He also has ! the distinction of having won games from | Lacker, world's champion; with Atkins, am ateur champion of England; with Lawrence, champion of the London Chess Club, and with Taubenhaus, the French master. He first came Into prominence as a boy of 16, when he held the famous Burille for several hours in a hotly contested game, and again at 18, when he held Steinitz, then world's champion, for a game which lasted eight hours. In the cable match of 1896, Barry won distinction from the fact that, atter all the games were completed except those of Burifle, Pillsbury and Barry, and the/ score was even between America and England, Burille finally beating Bird, but Pillsbury losing to Blackiburne, Barry, by a beautiful twenty-move combination, succeeded in wringing victory from Tinsley, ohess editor of the London Times, thereby deciding the match in favor of the United States. Barry la one of the greatest students of the game in the world, and one of the leading analysts and critics of the day. What Pillsbury has achieved over the boardi, Barry has accom plished in tha study. He has not played a great number of games, as compared with the average expert, but Is probably as fa miliar with the literature of the game as Ptllsbury, and may have done more work than Pillsbury In,original research. He belongs to the young school of "synthetio" players, who claim to be pupils of Morphy, and it is in part because of his prolonged newspaper controversy with Pillsbury, who belongs to the "analytic" school, over the Ruy Lopez attack, that he has issued the challenge for the championship. The match, therefore, may be; sard to decide not only personal titles, but the comparative efficiency of the two theories of chess development—provided there is any such line of chess cleavage. Plllsbury's fame is too familiar to require space. After winning the American champ ionship a number of years ago, he went to Europe and won the world championship at the Hastings tourney in 1896, winning over such masters as Lasker, Steinitz, Tschigorln, aunsberg, Blackburne and Tarrasch. He has played in every international tourney since that time, except the Monte Carlo in which Pillsbury end Lasker did not participate, and has come out second only to Lasker In some eight or tea world contests. His rec- ord of games -with Leaker is very creditable and Includes a large percentage of wins. Against Steinltz, Janowski, Burn, Ma son, Blackburne, Tschigorin, Showalter. Sohlechter, Maroczy, and the other masters, Pillsbury haa scored a large majority of wins. His exhibition play, in which he has contended as high as twenty games at ono time blindfold and won practically all, is the greatest in chess history. If Barry can hold out against the genius and experience of Pillsbury, he will demonstrate himself a giant in the royal game. That Pillsbury does not anticipate defeat, is shown by the fact, that his match with Barry immediately pre cedes his trip to Europe where he expects a match with Lasker for the world champion ship. If Barry wins the match with Pills bury. the latter would lose the chance to contend with Lasker for world championship honors, for Lasker would name Barry as the first entitled to a match.

The five players in the first class in this tourney give pawn and move to the six I players in the second class. The following game between C. C. Peterson, second clasa, and E. P. Elliott, first class, is a good illus tration of one of the best games won by the second class, and embodies an exceptionally strong development for the attacking play er. The game, while ably defended by Mr. Elliott, does not do his play full justice. lie has the largest percentage of wins o£ any player in the tourney up to date —72 per cent—and has won thirty-six against sixteen losses in his games with Mr. Peterson. It 5s a»i excellent example, however of Peter son's best, and is well worth Btudy as an example of strong chess cf the pawn and move variety. C. C. Peterson, white, vs. E. P. Elliott, black.

NOTES BY THE EDITOR. (a)— This has now become the most common opening move for black, and is preferred lo cally >to P to K8 or P to Q3. (b)—These are"lhe two best opening moves for white of course. (c) —P to K4 here is safe and leads to a freer game. (d) —This move weakens black's king side and becomes the mark of white's attack. (c)—P to QB3 and B to Q3 con stitute the main characteristic of Mr. Peter son's attack in all his games against the pawn and move odds game, and are strong moves both for atack and defense. (f)—Knight at K2 is weak in this, as In most openings. (g)—Lost move which leads to nothing and causes loss of subsequent B and R moves whioh follow, thereby taking a much needed B out of the game. (h) —Supporting the B in dislodging black's KB by the regulation way. CD —It is a question here if P to KB4 should not have preceded. (j)—Tempting move to make, but rather helps than hinders white's development. (k) —This B loses three moves in all for black and is idle in the critical stage of the game. (1) —White's maneuvering of this knight is an Important factor. It now has a strong post. (m)— Hastens the demolition. (n) —Wihite's past five moves in which a tendered sacrifice is made form a clever com bination. (o)— The attack is renewed with rigor. (p)—Fearing KtxRP, if pawn to R4. (q)—Only to be attacked on a still more dangerous diagonal. (r) —White's task is now easy, and he soon reaps the logical result of a strongly con-, ducted campaign. The Gletlhill Attack.

Third —Q to Kt4 per mits such a rapid development of White's forces that the loss of a pawn may well be risked." (c) Really the key-move of the subsequent combination.

SATURDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 9, 190 L Whist Edited by J. H. Hemphlll. The A. W. 1/. Well, the challenge trophy has moved to Chicago. The team representing the Hyde Park club of Chicago finally defeated the St. Paul four after a long-drawn battle of fifty six deals, which lasted far into the night. St. Paul was one trick ahead on the first half. On the first eight deals after dinner Chicago gained six tricks to one for St. Paul, but on the next eight St. Paul reversed the previous score and was again one in the lead; the last eight deals of the regular match were then played, and the result made the entire match a tie. The umpire ordered the tie to be played oft at once, eight additional deals being played. Chi cago gained five trick 3 to one for St. Paul, and consequently won the match by four trick?. The players were: Hyde Park, George P. Welles, captain; O. E. Browning, E. T. Tobin and F. L. Montgomery. St. Paul played S. iM. Metcalf, captain; Norman Fet ter, M. L. Countryman and T. J. Buford.

The Minneapolis Game. The New York Mail and Express is greatly elated over the Irregular plays and open ings made by several of the local players in the last trophy match against St. Paul, and is now claiming that the Minneapolis experts are using many of the freak ideas of the short-suit fanatics of the east. Nearly all of the plays which they publish and comment upon have been published by Th c Jo ur u al, and iv the editor's comments, which have always accompanied them, it has been frequently stated that the plays were entirely unwarranted and were not based upon the recognized system of play used by the Min neapolis Whist Club's team. Here are some of the plays. upon which they comment: Deals 8 and 43—Minneapolis opened nine from suits headed by ten, nine and two others. This is an accepted play of the team; It is a top-of-nothing lead and conveys that information to partner. The ten is never led (unless to partner's declared suit, or very late in the hand, when partner must know inevitably that it could not be a regular lead) except from king. Jack, ten and others. Deal No. 12 (a Cavendish hand)—-Minneapo lis led low from a three-card suit headed by ace in preference to four small trumps. The play is not authorized and is entirely contrary to system. Deal No. 19 —Minneapolis led low from ace, king and two small cards in plain suit. An other play that is certainly contrary to the system. Deal No. 39 —Seems to afford them consid erable amusement, but, perhaps, if the en tire hand and the correct play was published they could not make the play look quite as ridiculous. The hand, as given by the Mail and Ex press, contained cards two of which were singletons—a queen and a ten; a flve-card suit, headed by the ace, jack and ten, and four trumps to the ace. From this combina tion, is is stated that a Minneapolis player opened originally the singleton ten. Thla, of course, is a play that would not be coun tenanced by even the most rabid short suiter, and most certainly would not even be thought of by a well-trained and successful long suiter. It would certainly be quite mislead ing to partner and contrary to system. The correct holding and plary of deal No. 39 was: Trump, heart, ace, nine, seven, two; spades, queen; cluba, queen, nine, six, four, and diamonds, jack, nine, five, three. From this combination the Minneapolis player (West) opened the fourth-best club, which was held by North with the king, and who promptly led a trump which West won with his ace. ' West now led the singleton queen, abandoning bis suit, as It was evident that •his only hope of winning a trick In the suit was that North would be finally obliged to lead it up to him. This Is very different from an original opening, and the play can not be questioned. Deal No. 45 wes not mentioned by the Mail and Express, but In that deal the Minneapolis player did lead a singleton ten. The hand was quite weak in trumps, however, containing but three, with the nine spot the largest. The play was certainly not warranted by the system; nor would It be considered a good play by any one of- the team, not even the one by whom the play was made. It was led- by a team several tricks behind, with but four more deals to play. The lead was undoubtedly made as a shot, or with a desire to do some thing different from what It was known would be done at the other table, knowing that it would probably lose, but still hoping ! that It might possibly win and pull them out. ■ It Is to be hoped that the next team of the Minneapolis Whist Club will be able to fol low their system and play "old-style," win ning whist. The Northwestern Trophy. St. Paul still holds the northwestern trophy, but the team of colts representing Minneapo | Its in the match last Saturday put up a good [ fight and need not feel at all ashamed of their defeat. St. Paul gained twenty-three tricks during the match to eighteen gained by the Minneapolis players. The match was quite exciting, first one team being ahead I and then the other, St. Paul finally winning by five tricks, four of which were gained on one deal through the overcarefulness of one of the Minneapolis players. St. Paul played the same four that won the previous matches, Messrs. Hay, Bigelow, Sperry and Armstrong, with Patterson eubstituting for Armstrong in the evening. The Minneapolis team was made up of T. Bagley, captain; S. H. Chase, A. P. Loomis and F. V. Hobart. St. Anthony plays St Paul next Baturday. Ladies' Mglit. But eight tables were in use for the ladies' night game at the Minneapolis Whist Club, Tuesday night. Mr. and Mrs. Parsons, play ing the north and south hands, gained seven tricks during the evening's play. This was the largest gain and they were awarded the high-score honors. The play in the east and west sections was extremely close, the en tire variation from low to top store being but five tricks, and the largest gain wua only two points. Following are the scores as recorded: NORTH AND SOUTH. Mr. and Mrs. Mix 160 Shannon and Mrs. Meal 163 Johnson and Mrs. Conkey 160 Mr. and Mrs. Parsons 168 Mr. and Mrs. Wellington 160 Mr. and Mrs. Sackett 168 Mr. P'atinestock. and Mrs. Williams.l6l Mr. Harris and Miss Candee 159 Average 161 EAST AND WEST.

They rep resent the feelings of a prominent western whlster, who happened to spend a few weeks In the east lately and while in N«w York was a partner of various members of the Knickerbocker Whist Club. The verses which we publish were written by him on his return to the west and faith fully represent the different theories developed by the numerous short suiters of the east. If you the latest game of whist would know, From this great principle its precepts flow: Play your own hand in seven different ways. (Your partner, too, will vary thus his plays.) Your first lead makes all present understand LJttle or nothing that concerns your hand; And hence there is necessity most strong That you lead first a suit that's short (or long). In this, with ace and king, lead king, or ace: With king and queen, either may have first place; With ace, queen, knave, lead knave, or ace, or quean; Lead first the aoe, when you have ace and 'steea; With queen, knave, tan, lead quean—but tea will do; In other suits your choice la wider, too. Ere you return the trump, your own suit play; But plain suits are returned without delay. Whene'er you hold the master card, you're bound. It seems to bold it till th* thirteenth round. When second hand, interior cards you pliy; On top or bottom, or some other way. Mind well the rules for trumps, you'll often need them; When you have five, 'tis rarely right to lead them. Bp sure to see your partner's trump request; Then force him, If you think that that Is best. When, second hand^ a doubtful trick you Me, Let no rule hamper perfect liberty; Trump it or not, with two, or four or three. When weak In trumps you often force your friend. . For sequences, stern custom is forgot; For now you false card just as oft as not. When you discard the rules are now so many, it seems wiser not to follow any. The Local Tournament.' The usual number of players were in at tendance at the Thursday night game of the Minneapolis Whist club this week, Gray and Jennlsou made high score and are wearing the Kerma high score badges. Toddiand Wadsworth won second place with a gain of twelve tricks, but one less than the high score—Pugh and Chase, Fraser and Briggs and Wheeler and HemphiU -were tied for third place, each gaining ten tricks. The eighth match was won by Captain iiobart's team and the ninth by Captain Bagley. Tno Hobart team, however, gained about, twelve tricks on the evening's play, as they won the nrat match by twenty-three tricks and lost but eleven on the second.
