|NTELJjIGEN CARMARTHEN STEEPLECHASES. YESTERDAY. The opening day of the Carmarthenshire Steeple- chases and Hunt Race Meeting was favoured by very fine weather. The drying wind and frost over night had the pleasant effect of rendering the course far more suitable for running than was ex- pected a few days ago owing to the continuance of heavy rains. The course, situate about four miles out of the town, was attended by a large concourse of visitors from the district, and a goodly muster of the sporting fraternity. Racing was watched with the greatest interest by the spectators from the grand stand, the iield, and the side of the hill. Amongst the company were —Lord Emlyn, M.P., Sir Mart-eine Llovd. Bart., Mr. W. R. H. Powell, M.P., and the Hon. F. C. Morgan, M.P. The ollieials were:—Stewards: Viscount Emlyn, M.P., Sir Marteine Lloyd, Bart., Sir John Jones Jenkins, M.P., and Mr. J. N. Moore.
