PUBLICANS AND THE RATES. The Tied Houses Once More. On Saturday two important appeals were dealt with by the Assessment Committee. The first was that of Mr. Watkin Evans, Shepherd's Arms, Cwmaman. who said the gross value of his house was JE200 ratable, £ 190. He applied for a reduction. In reply to questions, he said the house was a tied one, and that it had been sold recently for £ 4,600. The assessment was confirmed. Mrs. Williams, Royal Hotel, Treharris, for whom Mr. P. T. Rhys, solicitor, Aberdare, appeared, appealed against the assessment of the above hotel. The house, Mr. Rhys stated, was assessed at £300 gross, and JS255 ratable. The rent was £100. It was a tied house, being the property of Mr. Thomas Jones, Aberdare, father of the appellant. Mr. Rhys argued that the position of the house was not advantageous for business. It was situated on the wrong side of Treharris, and the amount of trade done there was sinall.. Five barrels of beer were drawn a week, the price paid being30s. a barrel. The gross value, he thought, should be reduced to JE200. —Mrs. Williams said that trade had been de- pressed at Treharris lately, and that she suffered in consequence. There were only about 00 houses in that part of the town.—It was pointed out that the house had been built by Mr. Thomas Jones, the owner, who had chosen his own spot for the purpose also that the present assessment compared favourably with those of the Navigation and the Perrott Hotels. After consultation, the application was refused.
