Jan-27-16  zanzibar: <
As was confidently asserted, yesterday's
chess play at the Osborne
House, was by far the best of the
tourney.- The Rev. S. R. Calthrop,
of Syracuse, an old chess player of
Cambridge University, England,
and one of the contestants in the
Morphy-Paulsen Chess Congress in
1857, arrived on the 1:08 P. M. train
and played four games with Capt.
McKenzie with no odds, and, although
the champion won all the
games, the playing in three of them
was exceedingly fine. These four
games constitute the afternoon's

The evening's play commenced
with the Rev. Mr. Calthrop playing
a blindfold game against Col. J . E.
Storke, which resulted in a victory
for the Syracusian, his antagonist
resigning at the 32 move. >
