Event table notes

Event data
Name: 11th Canadian Championship
Place: Montreal
Start date: 28 Dec. 1882
End date: 6 Jan. 1883
 
Notes:
Di Felice gives a full crosstable. Yanofsky lists only 5 players, presumably in place order, and agrees with Di Felice that Ascher and Howe were 1st equal. But Yanofsky gives 'J.H. Shaw' in 3rd, whereas Di Felice gives 'Shaw, Joseph William', and Yanofsky gives 'J. Barry' in 4th and 'J. Henderson' in 5th, whereas Di Felice gives Hicks in 4th, Short in 5th and Bemrose in 6th. Who is right?
