NEATH LICENSING DAY, FIFTEEN LICENSES OBJECTED TO. SOME PLAIN HINTS FROM THE JUSTICES. Neath licensing justices sat on Monday, the magistrates being Messrs. E. S. Phillips t-uayor), W. E. Rees (ex-Mayor), C. Gard- ner, D. T. Sims, John Rees, W. B. Trick, Hopkin Morgan, Hopkin Jones, B. W. Da- vies and Thomas Teague. Mayor read a statement which he hoped would be considered carefully by the public and by those directly concerned. The jus- tices were prepared to grant renewals ex- cepting the following, which they considered to be unnecessary for requirements:—Lamb and FTag, Water-street; Farmers' Arms, Tynycae; Royal Exchange, Old Market- street Queen's Arms, Old Market-street White Lion, Clarence Inn, Walnut Tree. Cornish Arms, King William IV., and Royal Oak, Melyn. The justices also ob- jected to the following because of struc- tural unfitness, and plans must be submitted by February 25th:—Greyhound Inn, An- cient Briton, Victoria Hotel, Hope and An- nnr (rebuilding required), and Exeter Inn (enlargement desired). In the fo-Howinr fouT other cases rear boundary walls should be either erected or raised Apple Tree Inn, London Inn, Butchers' Arms and Windsor Castle. The license of the House of Lords Inn would be kept back, so that the occupier might consider the advisability of taking out a six-days' license. The Sessions were then adjourned to March 11th. There are 85 lioenses in the borough of Neath. NEATH REFRESHMENT ROOMS. William Smith, Swansea, applied on be- half of the Great Western Railwary Co. for a reduction in the amount of compensation payable to the compensation fund in res- pect of the Neath Refreshment Rooms. Mr. Smith said this year he would show a greater preponderance of nonalcoholic sales than alcoholic. Figures last year were: Alcoho- lic JB374 2s., and non-alcoholic JB531 5s. The Bench could reduce the amount payable 1 to not less than one-third. He was en- titled to some reduction, because the pre- mises came under the headings: 1., Rail- way Refreshment Rooms; 2, Bonafide Res- taurants and 3, rooms which are kept open for any other purpose to which the license is merely auxiliary. Mr. Ernest Milton, district manager, gave evidence. Bench decided that the rooms were re- freshment rooms within the meaning of the Act, and reduced the amount payable as compensation to one-half. DRUG DEALER'S APPLICATION. Mr. David applied on behalf of Mr. Ernest Hemming, Melyn Drug Stores, for an off wine license, to sell medicated wines in sealed vessels, as received, for which there was a demand. Bench granted the application.
