Event table notes

Event data
Name: Junior Chess Club Tournament
Place: Philadelphia
Start date: Dec. 1897
End date: Jan. 1898
 
Notes:
Scores given by Reichhelm are consistent with a 9-player single-round all-play-all, although only 8 scores are given. There are other possibilities, but this seems the most likely, so I have assumed it to be the case. Hilbert gives the names of 8 participants, the same as given by Reichhelm except that Schultz is mentioned but not Perry-Smith. Could it be that Reichhelm put Schultz' result in Perry-Smith's row in the table by mistake?
