An elegant finish to a well-played game. Mr. Lasker, who arrived in London early last week played at the Ladies' Chess Club several simultaneous games on Saturday last. It is his intention to make a lengthy tour in the provinces for exhibition play, and doubtless he will be much in demand. He is always a great favourite wherever he goes. LONDON INTERNATIONAL TOURNAMENT OF 1899.-The general committee met on Saturday at the British Chess Club for the purpose of electing a working committee. In many quarters there is much dissatisfaction expressed at the arrangements for this great match, the general impression being that more should be done on such an occasion to encourage brilliant amateur home tallent, which under present arrangements will of necessity be excluded, and we ourselves .are disposed to fall in with this opinion. SWANSEA AND LLANELLY MATCH. This match, which was fully expected to take place on Saturday last at the Tenby Hotel, was unfortunately deferred at the last moment. It -was found that from various causes, illness included, most of the strong Swansea players were unable to be present, it was therefore thought advisable to postpone the match for a week or two. When all the plans are matured the announcement will appear in this column. CHESS LESSONS.—Next week we hope to make a beginning with these, and the Editor would again ask ail those wishful to learn to have their pieces ready.
