Since Great Britain had won two matches in a row, a victory this year would give them permanent possession of the Newnes Cup. But the Americans put an emphatic stop to that with their usual good performance on the top boards and a solid job on the lower. Notable among the newcomers was a young Frank James Marshall, who showed some promise.

The 3rd Anglo-American Cable Match (1898) and 5th Anglo-American Cable Match (1900) were the previous and next editions of this team match-up for the Newnes Cup.
