He sought for a higher degree of brilliancy and complexity than had characterized the Slum- ma problem, lie loved to sacrifice almost all Ills pieces and mate with n scant re- mainder. He delighted In curious driving play. In forcing the Black K along a front ot his own Pawns or driving him in a sort of circuit, as lu the (Problem below). He sought, moreover, for singular mating po- sitions. Stamina made nothing of the male itself; Menilhe I in wished the mate to be as surprising as the. process by which It was readied.

(Jasklll and Frank "ieuiy Tlie Rice Tho exciting battle over tho supremacy of Attack or Defence In this gambit goe. merrily tin. From all we are able to gather from public reudlng aud private correspond- ence., we should say the preponderance of opinion leans to the Defence. The Immense popularity of the proposition to Investigate this during gambit .practically Is shown by the greut Isxly of entrants In tho Plllsbury t'orres. CI). Abho'ji Tourney to promte this Imjiilry; but when it comra to solid, convinc- ing weight ot opinion great deference must lie paid to the outcome of the substantial test being It In the Manhattan ft ('., iieeause ut the carerui work expended on the ipiestluu by a body ot masters of .such etpinl aud lilgh skill, tip to our lust Informa- tion i lie score was a tie at six each, with no drawn games.' "Aud this, despite the fact." says Tin- Fault, "that tho Defence udoiited femirnlly as the most etllclent move, 10., ' to 11 II, on eivcli occeaslon." This fiirnlslies a rather remarkable com- mentary on oiiu of ISco. Ouuslierg's recent titiernucim. "The advance of these l'uwus by I he Defence seldom effects much good In . thin (It's), or any other gambit."
