SWANSEA LICENSEES' ORDEAL. FORTH DAY OF THE LOCAL HEAR- INGS. Swansea Licensing Sessions resumed on Thursday, Mr. W. Howel Watkins presid- ing. "NO OBJECTION." "I think this house stands out so con- spicuously among the others," said the chairman, with reference to the Manselton Hotel, Mir. W. Grev Walters, the licensee, and Sir C. C- Mansel, owner. No opposi- tion to the renewal of the license was of- fered. HALF-A-CENTURY TO RUN. Mansel Arms, Cwim-road, PenHre. Ed. John Davies, owner and tenant, was sa.id to be a good house, in good condition End standing well apart from any otbec house on the town side, and again Mr. Laurence Richards, on bebaJf of the police, offered no serious objection to the renewal. Mr. R. T. Leyson, for applicant, said there was 49 years to run on the lease. Mr. Rd. Watkins said the cellar ran un- derneath the next bouse and access might easily be made there.—The trade was said to be over JB20 per week.—Decision re- served. ANOTHER PENTRE HOUSE. The only objection offered to the renewal of the Three Compasses, Pentre. Enoch Richards tenant, and Swansea Old Brew- ery owners, was the fact that it was one of others close by. Supt. Gill admitted a large trade was done. Mr. Horatio Watkins supported the ap- plication, but undertook to have one of the backdoors closed- Tenant said that three years ago he took, over the lease for 14 years, paying £500 for it. The takings amounted to from £35 to £40 per week. In reply to Mr. Rd. Watkins, witness said that .£5 to £10 per week represented credit. Chairman: Thatfs large. Decision reserved. TWENTY-ONE YEARS TENANT. The same main objection appliad to the Old Compass, Pentre. Moses Gwilym, ten- ant, and Swansea. United Brewery Com- pany, owners, and Mr. Davies, representing the owners, said the tenant had been in occupation for 21 years without complaint. -Decision reserved. "HAVE YOU BEEN TO AMERICA V Mr. Richard Davies, tenant and owner, applied through Mr. Leyson for the re- newal of the license of the Upper Compass, beerhouse. Sergt. Davies had nothing to say against the house, but there were too many licensed houses in the vicinity. Mr. Leyson suggested that the trade done was not considered, but that witness, hav- ing "studied euclid lately." gave the court the benefit of it by saying that the housds should be placed with mathematical pre- cision. Witness: Yes. (Laughter.) Sergts. West and Lloyd deposed that the house did a small trade. The tenant, who took a 50 yeans' lease of the house three years ago, said the tak- ings were from £15 to £17 per week. Mr. Rd. Watkins asked applicant if he had been to America? Mr, Leyson vigorously interposed that it had nothing to do with the question. Chairman said the question used to be "Have you seed the Shah?" (Much laugh- ter.) Mr. Leyson: Or has your rural grand- mother been lately engaged in sacking eggs; that would be just as relevant. (More laughter.) Mr. Watkins put it that applicant was partial to America, and said he would go back if he could dispose of his lease. Chairman: I don't think it is an objec- tion to the lease because it is in the market. Decision reserved. OBJECTION TO A BACK ENTTRANCE. "Good trade and a good structore," was the police testimony in regard to the Plough and Harrow. Pentre; Elizabeth Davies ten- ant, and Swansea Old Brewery owners. Uf. Richard Watkins objected to a back' ewfcruisoe, which, hn stud, shouM move been closed seven years ago acoordang to a pro- raise made. By Mr. Horatio Watlcins (for the owners) No cosnplaaot had been made as to user. The takings were stated to be £25 per week. Decision reserved. A USEFUL HOUSE. _OM Plough and Ha.rrow, Pentre, Richard Nadbolls tenant, and David Isaac owner, was also given a good character by the police. but Supt. GiU ruggeeted the closing up of a back door for trade purposes as it made the homse difficult for police supervision. Otherwise it was a useful house. The tak- ings were proved to be £25 per week.
