In reply to the Bench, Dtputy Chief Constable Harris said that the superintendent of police at Llandudno, where the applicant had been employed, had ten that the police knew very little about him. Mr Row- land That I should say, is all the better for my client.—The license of the Mona Inn, Bethesda, was temporarily trans- ferred to Griffith Williams; and that of the Penybryn Inn, Llanfairfechan, to Wm. Hughes, late of the Britannia Inn, Den- bigh. CHARGE AGAia'ST A PUBLICAN.— Ellis Booth, licensee of the Black Lion Hotel, Geraizim, Llanfairfechan, was summoned for selling drink to a drunken person, there being a second summons for permitting drunkenness.—Mr S. R. Dew prosecuted on behalf of the police; Mr Huw Rowland appearing for the defence.— From the evidence it appeared that Police Constable No. 5 (Griffith) visited the house on the night of April 21st, and there found a man named Evans in a very ad- vanced state of drunkenness, and making use of bad language. When interrogated, the defendant said that Evans had only been a short time in the house, and had been supplied with but two glasses of beer. The officer followed him out, and the manner in which he conducted him- self in the roadway left no doubt as to his inebriety. Another druinken man was subsequently found on the premises; but he had not been served.—Mr Rowland submitted that the constable had greatly over-colouired the case, Evans not being drunk, but in a state of excitement and noisy.—The licensee, Evans, and other witnesses were called in support of this contention.—The Bench said there was no doubt that Evans was under the influence of drink. A fine of 10s and costs was im- posed, the license not to be endorsed.
