After the Chief Justice had moved P to K 4 on board No. 1 Mr. T. Harlin moved a vote of thanks to him, in acknowledging which he said he was far more than repaid by the pleasure be had received in being present.

Play was then proceeded with, the interest principally centreing in board No. 1, where Mr. Higgs, a beardless youth, was pitted against Mr. Stanley, the Warrnambool crack.

He opened with a Ruy Lopez, and for some time played vigorously and correctly, but in an unfortunate change of pieces he lost the attack, and never recovering himself, resigned on the 37th move, having taken 41 minutes as against his opponent's 66 minutes.>
