  MissScarlett: Sidney P. Johnston in the <Chicago Tribune>, August 11th 1902, p.7:

<C. S. Howell, the youngest and one of the most original and aggressive chess editors in the country, has resigned his position with the Brooklyn Standard Union. Mr. Howell was an unusally able writer on chess and always had a chip on his shoulder. He had a wholesome contempt, which he freely expressed, for that element which is continually flaunting its opinions, but refusing to support them by either play or analysis.>
