<Herr Emanuel Lasker played sixteen of the best players of the Chess, Checker and Whist Club last night.
The game began at 8 o'clock, Mr. Lasker opening with the queen pawn on the boards of all the players, and lasted until 20 minutes past 11. The players in the order they succumbed were: Messrs. D. C. Mellen, D. A. Blanchard, C. F. Buck, R. L. Tullis, Edward May, R. B. Trader, L. L. Dugazon, L. L. Labatt (draw), James McWhan, F. C. Kaczaroski, O. M. Tennison, E. H. Farrar, Girault Farrar, S. Waters, Richard Peete and Prof. Brant V. Dixon.
Judge L. L. Labatt, who drew a game with the chess master, played a very handsome game.
