The one-day meeting of the United Hunts Racing Association at Belmont Park Election Day promises to furnish a quality of amateur sport that will eclipse any at the Terminal, where the meetings of the organizations hava been held for years. The chief race, the Between the Flags Steeplechase, has ,000 added, and is for registered hunters, at three and a half miles, over timber. Fifteen nominations were booked when the entries closed. The crack amateur riders of the country will be seen in the saddle and the contest ought to be one of the most attractive features of its class of the autumn. The following are the nominating hunts and their masters: Albemarle Hunt, A. S. Craven, master; Charlottesville, Va. Bloomficld Open Hunt,, Elliott S. Nichols, master; Birmingham. Mich. Mr. Bchrs Hounds, B. L. Behr, master; Lake Forest, 111. The Cavalry School Hunt. Major D. W. McEuery, master; Fort Riley, Kans. Chagrin Valley Hunt, Windsor T. White, master; Gates Mills, Ohio.

Richard Whitney, New York; one. Ralph Beaver Strassburger, Normandy Farm, Gwy-need Valley, Pa.; one. The above is a thoroughly representative list of the hunting element, and the Between the Flags Steeplechase should do a lot to help the thoroughbred in communities where a few years ago there was little call for him. It is the first time in a long while that the United States Army has had a candidate in an open race of this character.
