Jun-01-14  ljfyffe: Mr. Narraway has been equally successful in tourneys by correspondence. In thr Hamilton tourney, he obtained the third prize; at the Co mercial tourney of Cincinnati, in1882, he bore off a special prize. In the first tourney of the ST. JOHN GLOBE, he tied with C.J. Coster and A. Porter for first prize, and had the honor(sic) to be chosen to conduct the second tourney opened by that journal, which is the most extensive of its own kind, having twenty-nine contestants from all parts of North America. In thr "International Correspondence Match", of 1889, Mr. Narraway was chosen for the game No.1, and found himself matched with the celebrated player, Mr. S. Loyd, of New York; and he won the game for Canada.
Jun-01-14  ljfyffe: Continued from the St. John Globe: Mr. Narraway has also composed several chess problems, which are to be found in "Canadian Chess Problems", published by C.F. Stubbs. He also plays blindfold, and has engaged in simultaneous games at the "Ottawa Chess and Checker Club", of which he has been the vice-president since the formation of the club. He has been several times elected vice-president of the "Canadian Chess Association"; and in the telegraphic tourney between the clubs of Montreal and St. John was chosen as judge for the unfinished games.
Jun-01-14  ljfyffe: Narraway judged the game between Porter and Frank Marshall to be a draw.
Jun-02-14  ljfyffe: Editing errors in Globe article: cross out "own";
"Commercial" missing a letter; "the" typo.
