SUNDAY DRINKING AT PONTY- PRIDD. The Stipendiary on the Publicans. At the Ystrad police-court, on Monday, Mr Ignatius Williams, stipendiary magistrate, observed, in the hearing of a case in which a miner was charged with stealing money belonging to a person who slept in the same bedroom in. a hotel at Pontypridd on Satur- day last, that it appeared that colliers and others from different pasts of the district or the valleys frequented public-houses at Pontypridd on Satur- day evenings, and remained there as travellers JÙI night, drinking until some timo in the morning. Then the visitors were legally qualified to obtain drink on the following day. — Mr Matthews, superintendent of police, remarked that was exactly what was generally done in some of the public houses. — Tho learned Stipendiary rejoined that he could not possibly perceive any legal mode whatever of putting a stop to the nuisance, unless the bench refused renewing the licenses. The magistrates had power to do that or to confiscate the licenses of the landlords. But in the present case there was no evidence clearly showing that the parties had lodged in the public-house for the purpose of getting drink onSunday.—Mr Supt. Matthews said he did not think that most of the travellers who remained all night in certain hotels in the town were bona-fide travellers—ho conscientiously believed they were tipplers.—His Worship, inter- posing, remarked that during their stay in public- houses it seemed they were accommodated some- what like the members of the household. Confiscation of the licenses was the only real remedy.
