< We NOTE that Frank J. Marshall, the American champion, and David Janowski, of Paris, have agreed to play a match of eight games up. Play to start July 5. A new feature has been introduced in this match, in that drawn games will only count a quarter of a point for each player and the winner must have a clean lead of not less than two games. Time limit forty moves in the first two hours and twenty moves thereafter. Part of the games will be played in New York and the balance most probably at Atlantic City. >
