POPULAR AMUSEMENTS. DISCUSSION IN THE MOUNTAIN ASH COUNCIL. At the above Council on Monday, the Clerk said I they had deferred the consideration of granting Mr. Samuel Noakes, a licence to perform stage plays iu a building to be erected by him on the Navigfttion Ground, in order that they might have his (the Clerk's) opinion as to whether they had the power to refuse or not. It was in their power to refuse or grant the licence, but he believed that if a pioper case was made out, the law intended that they should grant it.—Mr. Little I always thought that if the building met with the requirements of the surveyor, wo were bound to grant a licence.—Mr. Rees Price thought the application should he granted. It would be a blessiug to the young men in that district. They had nowhere to go in the evening except the public houses.—Mr. Adam Clarke said he understood that Mr. Noakes had now gone to Ystrad, and he did not intend to apply again. He told him so. -The Clerk Never mind what he told you. We have got to deal with what he told us. and here it is here.—Mr. J. Williams proposed that the licence should not be granted.—Mr. Evan Morgan seconded.—The original proposition not being seconded, the ameudment was put and carried,—Mr. Price I should like to know why.—The Chairman: We have finished with the matter know.—The Clerk then read an application from Mr. E. Ebley for a similar licence for three months. He had had licences granted him several times.—Mr. Adam Clarke proposed that they should grant the licence.—Mr. Price seconded.—Dr. Morgan proposed a direct negative, and the proposition found a seconder.—Mr. J. Powell supported the motion, lieeause he believed that some place of amuse- ment was necessary for the vouug people of the neigh- bourhood. If they did not provide them with this amusement, they might be sure the young men would find places of amusement which would be more injurious.—Mr. Thomas Jones supported the amend- ment. He did not think they should go against '.he hall, which was a source of revenue to the ratepayers. j —Dr. Morgan said ho did not think the toue of tbe theatre was very elevating, and in having that theatre there, they would prevent plays from coming to the I halL—Mr. Morgan Morgan supported the amend- ment.—Mr. Adam Clarke: We will be stopping the poor working-classes from amusement, They can afford to pay 3d., but not 6d. aud Is. to go into the hall.—On a division, the amendment was carried by j two votes.
