Event table notes

Event data
Name: 13th Franklin Chess Club Championship
Place: Philadelphia
Start date: 6 Jan. 1898
End date: 24 Mar. 1898
 
Notes:
Di Felice has Mordecai Morgan and F. Smyth at this event but Reichhelm and Hilbert have J.P. Morgan and C. Smyth. Hilbert (p.62) cites Kemeny's Phila. Pub. Ledger column of 28 Mar. 1898 as saying that the championship 'was finished on Thursday', which would be 24 Mar. 1898. Hilbert and Lahde give year as 1897, but other sources say 1898.
