Event table notes

Event data
Name: 10th Franklin Chess Club Championship
Place: Philadelphia
Start date: 1894
End date: 1895
 
Notes:
Reichhelm's table is inconsistent, showing 2 losses each ('00') to Kemeny by Perry-Smith and J.P. Morgan, but only 1 win by Kemeny over those two players, the 2nd in each case not being played ('1-'). Reichhelm's total scores are consistent with these 2 games not being counted. Gaige reproduces Reichhelm's table and puts question marks after the '00' scores for Perry-Smith and J.P. Morgan in the Kemeny column. Di Felice gives the 2 wins by Kemeny in both cases ('11') without comment. It seems most likely that these 2nd games were, in fact, not played, which is what I have assumed.
