UNITED HUNTS TRACK JUMPS. New York, November 1. The results of two days racing over the new Hunts course at Queens, L. L, have kiioe-la-el the; props from under the- hunting sharps who have argued ail along that the fences were too big and that there could be uo successful racing over the course until they had been reconstructed. In the. two days racing, so far, which included six steeplechases, not one borse fell. This Is a capital showing, regardless of the fact that the fields were small, for the horses bave been of the poorer class and many of them would have found It difficult to negotiate the other courses about New York. The cross-country folk, lioth owners and riders, are loud in their praises of the course now, and despite the fact that the present meeting has been anything but a success, from the standpoint of patronage, racing here is certain to become immensely popular in the next few years.
