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.

TIETGEN'S DEATH
Denmark Lotei One of Her Moit Val
uable Men. •
By the death of C. F. 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.

The WUcountn Tournament.
The Wisconsin Checker Association's annual
tournament will be held in Eau Claire, begin
ning Nov. 27, to decide the state champion
ship for the following year. The Wisconsin
Checker Association is a unique organization
in regard to by-laws governing its proceed- j
ings and deciding its honors, among which
may 'be mentioned the distribution of the
purse, which is apportioned according to
standing at the close of the tournament; all
contestants sharing in the division of the
money, the highest on the list winning the
championship for the following year. Tho
rules published in Lees' guide govern Ufa
play. Two successful yearly meetings have
been already held, and the third promises to
be more popular than any previously held,
Judging from the number who have signified
their intentions of being present, among
whom may be mentioned I. P. and Preston
Ketchum of Madison, G. A. Pierce of Spoon
er and O. T. Southworth of Eau Claire.
Should Percy Bradt and E. A. Bingham be
present (as all .chocker lovers of the state
fondly hope), the meeting will be notable as
having present a complete list of the checker
talent of the state.

Could any of our readers play the black

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."

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.

Pawn and Move Odds.
The local handicap tourney has given great
interest to the subject of pawn and move
odds. 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.

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.

NOTES BY LITERARY DIGEST,
(a) Usually the move here is B to KKto,
or B to Q3; but the text-move is necessary in
this attack.
(b) This Is the "Gledhill Attack." Walter
Gledhill, in the B. C. M. for July, gives his
reasons for this move: "First —P to B4 Is
not good, the white QB being at home. Sec
ond —The weak state of Black's X wing In
vites the entry of the white Q, which cannot
be dislodged without causing a serious breach
in Black's defenses. 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.
(d) This attempt to develop the KB proves
his downfall. P to KR3 should have been
played, preventing 10—Kt to Kt6.
(c) There doesn't seem, to be any satisfac
tory answer to this move. If 10—• • •
QKt to K4; 11—P to 84, Xt to B3; 12—P to 80,
KKt to K4; 18—B to KB4, Bto Q3; 14—KtxB
eh, QxKt; 15—B to QKt 5, etc.
(f) White can play at once KtxQP, but
he has something better.
(g) It will not do to play 12—BxP and
give up only one piece, for: 12—BxP, Ktxß;
18—KUKt, PxKt, and, in the event of blaok
14—• * * Kto K3. White cannot play Q to
ICB
(h) If 14—* • • Kto K3: 15—Q to K3 eh,
eto. KR to Ksq eh will not do.
(1) An attempt to develop th* Bs and get
the Rs into play.
(]) If 18—* ♦ • Bto K2; 19—Kt to Q6 oh,
X to B «q; 20—QxB. etc.
(k) The R must go to Q eg, or QxR eh.
Hence, 19—• • • Rto Q sq; 80—Kt to B7

B5 eh, X to B3; 28— Q to BS eh, X to Kt4;
24—Kt to K4 eh, X to R8; and White mates
In three moves?
If Black plays 8—• • • PxP. which Is
probably his best move, this continuation fol
lows: 7—KtxP, KtxKP; B—Q to Kt3, Xt to
B3; o—B to KtS. B to Q2;10-BxKt. Ktxß;

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

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.

Eastern Whlit.
The following lines afe taken from, the New
York Mail and Express of Oct. 23. 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.
