Notes:
Gaige indicates the score of the game Clark-M.M. Smith as '1?' for both players. The American Chess Bulletin of Sep. 1905 (p.287) has 1 for both players. Di Felice scores it as 1-0 for Clark. Di Felice has 'Clark, John Levi' at this event, but he often does not distinguish that player from 'James W. Clark' or 'J.H. Clark' active around the same places and times. The American Chess Bulletin and the Minneapolis Journal have 'J.W. Clark'. Di Felice has 'Abbott, Joseph William' here, but he was English. The American Chess Bulletin and the Minneapolis Journal have James Abbott of Chicago. Di Felice has 'Spencer, R.J.' here, but the American Chess Magazine and the Minneapolis Journal have 'George B. Spencer'. Di Felice has 'Rosen, Leon' here, and Gaige has 'Rosen', but the American Chess Magazine has 'C.G. Roosen' and 'Rosen' in different places, while the Minneapolis Journal has 'C.G. Rosen'. This must be Charles G. Rosen.
