the present tenant went in he made a I promise that there should be no complaint under his care and so did not live on the premises. Mr. Thompson said the business was li- censed so far back as 1839 and was «ot therefore as up-to-date as modern houses Witness: Sometimes the architecture is battel. (Laughter.) Supt. Gill said the house was very diffi- cult for police supervision. Sunday trading was rampant in the neighbourhood. Witness admitted that no complaint had been made of the present tenant and did lot object to the renewal because the tenant did not live on the premises. Inspector Nicholas and P.C. Pember were called. The latter compared the house to others in the neighbourhood. Mr. Leyson Do you state that any one of these houses meets with the approval of a critical gentleman like yourself? Witness: Yes. How many —Less of them. Mr. Leyson: That's a puzzling answer. You will excuse my inability to grasp it. (Laughter.) Mr. Portsmouth (architect) gave evidence. Decision was reserved I' THE ANGEL INN. "House in very good condition, but too many in this immediate neighbourhood." This was the police evidence in the case oi the Angel Inn, Llangyfelach-street, Michael Keating, tenant, and Messrs. Evans Bevan, Neath, owners. Mr. W. A. Thomas ap- peared for the tenant, and Mr. W. P. Smith for the owners. Plans had been prepared for an improved access to a club-room. Supt. Gill expressed surprise at hearing that the landlord hol- lowed another occupation during the day- time. All the public-houses in that neigh- bourhood should have a landlord the whole day. A very large trade was done at t-he Angel, particularly with women. Ml-. R. Watkins said the house needed re- building to meet the trade done. The tenant said he was a sub-contractor for the Ocean Dry Docks Co., but the work did not take up all his time and he could very well manage the public-house as well. Bench reserved their decision. BRYNMELIN INN: A GOOD HOUSE. Brynmelin Inn. Llangyfelach-street, Abra- ham Thomas, tenant, Mr. J. F. Morris, Carmarthen, owner, passed muster, except that the bar, according to Sergt. Davies, needed more ventilation. Supt. Gill said it was a good house, but for the size of the yard, and respectably conducted. Decision reserved. PENTRE INN. The police had nothing against the Pen- tre Inn beerhouse, Elizabeth Nehemiah ten- ant, and owned by the Swansea United Brewery, but considered that four licensed houses in the immediate neighbourhood were too many. The tenant had been there for 18 years without complaint—-MT. San- key supported the renewal. Decision reserved. A LONG TENANCY. Mr. Sankey, on behalf of the Swansea United Brewery supported the renewal of the seven days' license of the Hearts of Oak Inn, Llangyfelach-street, Ann Williams tenant. Mp. Viner Leeder appeared for the freeholder.—Back portion of premises small and snug dark, and entrance belo,* the street level, were points of objection but the main one was that four public-houses were not required there. The tenancy had been in the same family for thirty years, with only one oomplaint, and that many years ago. M'r. Richard Watkins said he would not care to say whether the Pentre Inn or the Hearts of Oak should be retained. Decision reserved. ( TWO HOUSES NOT WANTED. "Fair condition structurally for am old house, with no pavement in front of the house," was the police character of the Rail- way Inn, Carmarthen-road, Maurice Murphy tenant, and Messrs. Hancock and Co. owners, but the Angel Inn was close by, and only ten houses in the neighbourhood, and so it was argued that both houses were not wanted. Ten transfers had been made in as many years, but against the suggestion that this meant poor trade, Messrs. Hancock's mana- ger (Mr. Rogers) produced figures shewing that last year they had sold £ 584 worth of goods to the house, which meant that the tenant's takings were from JB11 to JB12 per week. Decision reserved. THE HOUSE PRACTICALLY OP- POSITE. Angel Inn, Oarmartheii-road, tenant Mr. W H. Miles, ine owners Swansea Unified Brewery, was said to be a small house in good condition, but unneressa-- if tje Had way is retained. Rev. Isaac Lloyd, called, did not think either of them required. (Laughter). Evidence was further called, shewing that the takings amounted to from JB10 to J612 a week. Decision was reserved. LANDORE INN.. It was intimated that the notice of ob- jection to the renewal of the Landore Inn would be withdrawn, the landlord having undertaken to pay certain arrears of rate: due from the late tenant.
