CHAMPION COURSING MEETING.
Owing to the scarcity of hares yesterday’s programme was drawn out till past five o’clock, two long delays taking place while the bares that had got away in the earlier rounds were driven round to be put through the ordeal a second and a third time. This was rather rough on puss, and in order to give them a show extra long slips were given them. The following courses were run after we went to press : MAIDEN STAKES. SECOND ROUND. Kaprolani beat Manton Forest Queen beat Britannia HarpendsD beat Kozelle Bonnie Girl beat Actress Ivanhoe beat Nimrod Mystery beat Flimby Hark Rustic heat Jeannle Deans Rotomahana boat Filing Spur Plymouth Rook teat Starlight The Bmtam boat Home Rule Presto beat Queen of tho West lona beat Hector.

Fugue (3 to 2 on) was quicker than Emin Bey from the slips, but tho latter drew up to her in the run-up, and it was difficult to tell from the stand which dog gained tho turn. A rare give-and-take course ensued, both dogs working splendidly; but when the hare escaped the flag went up in favor of Emin Bey. Kiwi (2 to 1 on) led Dribbler all the way, and, working grandly, beat him pointless, Sultan (6 to 4 on) led Flora from slips; but the bitch gave him the go-by in the run up, and won all the way in a short course.
