Dec-16-16  offramp: Marshall had come third at Paris (1900) where he beat Lasker ( Marshall vs Lasker, 1900 ). So this was a bad result for him. Pillsbury won by a large margin, despite the strong field.
Dec-16-16  TheFocus: Marshall was not Marshall in this tournament.

  KEG: The game Napier-Delmar (Round 4) is said here to be "unavailable." But a score of the game is given in the Tournament Book, said to be from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle. I was going to annotate the game, but I question the accuracy of the score. The game--as given--is so bad that it is hard to believe it was contested between the players who ultimately tied for 2nd-3rd.

Fearing that I do that providing notes on this score would be nonsense, I have decided to let it rest.
