  MissScarlett: The <Winnipeg Tribune> of Saturday, June 8th 1907, confirms this game took place on Friday, the 7th; Lasker scored +12 -2, losing to Smith and <R.W. Worsley>. The game score isn't given (it appeared later in <Lasker's Chess Magazine>), but Smith's second effort, on the Saturday, as reported in the <Tribune> on the 10th, was won by Lasker.

Lasker's full results in Winnipeg are given on the 10th:

Fri, 7th: +12 -2 =0
Sat afternoon, 8th: +7 -1 =0
Sat evening, 8th: +13 -2 =2

Overall: +32 -5 =2

Lasker is quoted on the 8th:

<"What do I think of the chess players of Winnipeg?" Well I think that Winnipeg has some very excellent members and is undoubtedly the strongest chess centre in Canada. Of course I could hardly form any opinion of the real strength of Magnus Smith, your champion, but he is a player who I should meet alone rather than in simultaneous play.>
