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 J. 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.
