[By S.D.C.J What with bowling, electioneering, and other causes, things in the draughts world are practically at a* standstill just now. The Otago Club s tourney drags out its weary length. There are still a few games to be played, and a week or so should see the finish. Players generally will regret to learn of the loss sustained by Mr H. Halliday through the demise of his son. Their sympathy is extended to the bereaved family m their irreparable loss. The match for the World's Championship between Banks and A. Jordau takes place at Kansas City, United States of America. A start will be made on Monday next. Mr R. Holmes, the well-known Scottish international player, recently paid a visit to Melbourne. Being unknown in the Victorian capital, you can judge of the surprise of the players when the identity of the international became known. In his games with F. T. Best, his score was won two, lost one, and drawn three. Wyllie. the "Herd Laddie," had a saying that when a man married he was lost to the game. We hope this will not be the case with Mr Hugh Egan. We understand that the Australasian champion is to become a benedict next month, but there is no reason to* fear that the happy event will bring about his withdrawal froir match play on the cheauarad sauaxaa.
