<<<<<Mr. H. W. Apperly.>

CHAMPION CHESSPLAYER OF QUEENSLAND.>

(From a photo. by Hammer and Company, Adelaide.)>

Mr. Apperly won second place in the South Australian championship tourney, 1895.

He was a member of the Sydney School of Arts Chess Club during his residence in Sydney, and on his occasional visits to this metropolis he is made a welcome visitor to that chess resort and to the Sydney Chess Club.

During a long and honorable connection with the A.M.P. Society, Mr. Apperly made a host of business and social friends in Sydney and throughout this colony, and the same good fortune of pleasant companionship followed him on his promotion to take charge in South Australia.

Mr. E. N. Wallace, during his sojourn in Adelaide, was Mr. Apperly's guest.

Mr. Apperly is now stationed at Brisbane, in charge of the Queensland business.

In August, 1896, Mr. A. C. Palmer, then champion of Queensland, was challenged by Mr. W. C. Smales, of Townsville. The challenge was accepted, but Mr. Smales subsequently withdrew. Mr. Apperly came forward a few weeks later, and issued a challenge, which was accepted. Mr. Palmer made a good start by winning three games straight to nil. The first lasted 80 moves. The fourth and fifth were won by Mr. Apperly. Gradually he forged ahead, and by steady tactics wrested the championship from Mr. Palmer.

Mr. Apperly has in turn been challenged by Mr. Addison, and much interest centres in the contest now in progress.>
