CHESHIRE CHESS ASSOCIATION. ♦ The annual meeting of the Cheshire Chess Association was held on Saturday, in the rooms I of the Birkenhead Chess Club, Mr. R. Marriott, president, in the chair. There was a good attendance of delegates from the affiliated clubs. The annual report stated that the past season, though lacking in the principal feature of its immediate predecessor-the match with York- shire—had on the whole been very satisfactory. A match of 20 a side, resulting in a draw, had been played with the Manchester Chess Club, and there bad been a match between East and West Cheshire which had ended in favour of the Western Division by nine games to seven and four draws. The winning of the Cheshire Cup by the Sale and District Club had been one of the most noteworthy incidents of the season, inasmuch as the trophy had only been won once previously by an eastern club since the establishment of the competition in 1889. The report and a very satisfactory treasurer's account were passed by the meeting. Some of the rules, including one or two relating to the cup competition, were amended. Officers were elected as follows:- President, A. Solby, Congleton; vice-presidents, J. P. Eglen (Birkenhead) and J. M. Kay (Sale); treasurer, J. Burtinshaw, Stockport; secretary, E. A. Grieg, Egremont; committee, J. Hepburn (Birkenhead), N. Clissold (New Brighton), the Rev. Morgan (Chester), C. M. Rogers (Offerton), E. Berry (Hyde), R. Marriott (Ashton-on- Mersey); auditor, J. M'Millan; captains, R. Marriott (Eastern Division) and J. Macdonald, Birkenhead (Western Division). The latest dates for completing the rounds of the Cup, competition were fixed as follow: 1st, Nov. 20; 2nd, Jan. 8; 3rd Feb. 12; final, March 26, in Manchester. A match, 20 a side, with the North Staffordshire Association, was fixed for November 13 at Macclesfield; and the East v. West match for January 15. It was resolved to challenge the Shropshire Chess League to a 20 a side match to be played in February or March at Chester. Thanks were accorded to the retiring officers with a special vote to Mr. Allbutt, the secretary, who resigned through change of residence. The next annual meeting is to be held at Macclesfield.
