Tho tourneys of the former club still go slowly ahead, but counter-attrac-tions have materially affected the attendances of late.

Considering that it was the club's first tourney, and tho strength- of the players 'was in many cases an unknown quantity, his task was anything but an enviable one. In recognition of the work clone on behalf of the club. Secretary N. Mac Loan was tho recipient of a handsome pipe, and It. Cox of a pocket book. Both have worked well for the club\ and the recognition by numbers was much appreciated by tho recipients, both of whom spont n great deal of time and labor in furthering, in various ways, the club's intorosts. That the local committee of tho N.Z.D.A. are alivo to their work is evidenced by a communication rec*i»ed from the secretary. Subscription lists have been widely circulated. Ho says: "All tho members of our club, which is a small one, are going to do what they can as opportunity offers. . . . Players who aro travelling ps agents for different firms have been wll posted up with tickets, as tkay will be able to get assistance from pla.vors wo never see or hear of." That success may attend their efforts is desired. It will bo some tinio before | many returns come to hand, but with such willing helpers the prospects arc indeed bright for the forthcoming championships. Soma of the conditions of the BanksJordan match are outlined in tho latest exchanges, says the ' Australasian.' Forty gainos aro to be played for 1,000 dollars and "the championship of the world." Play begins at Kansas City on Monday, November 16. Tho Kansas City Club pays the travelling and hotel expenses of tho players, and offers 100 dollars for the copyright of the games, which is the property of the winner. Jordan receives a fee for annotating half the games. Rules: 'Anderson's Second.' The fact that Alfred Jordan is known by a number of our players will give an added interest to the match, and the result will be eagerly looked forward to.
