Conway and Llandudno Petty Sessions. CONWAY, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24TH.Befóre Henry Kneeshaw, Esq (Chairman); Dr K. H. Bold Williams; Dr T. Dalton The Mayor of Conway (Councillor Dr R. Arthur-Prichard, J.P., C.C.); County-Councillor C. H. Darbishire County-Alderman Elias Jones Morris Jones, Esq and J. Allanson Picton, Esq. Mr Picton took no part in the brewster cases. THE JURY-LISTS. The Bench passed the lists of jurors and special jurors. THE JUNCTION RAILWAY-MEN'S SUPPER. Mr Moses Godber, licensee of the Ferry Farm Hotel. Llandudno Junction, was granted an extension of hours on Friday evening, September 28th, from eleven till one, for the purpose of a railwaymen's supper. THE FIVE ADJOURNED LICENSES. Mr Humphreys, solicitor, Llanrwst, said that he appeared on behalf of Police-Superintendent H. D. Williams, who, he was sorry to say, was unable to attend owing to illness. He was instructed to say that the police did not intend to press any of the objections, which they had given merely with the object of warning those license- holders who had been convicted during the year. —Mr W. Thornton Jones formally applied for the renewal of the license of the Tygwyn Inn, Roe Wen; and Mr Chamberlain for those of the King's Head, Llandudno, to John Midgeley the Albion Inn, Conway, to Humphrey Griffith and the Snowdon Vaults, Llandudno, to James Davies. Mr James Marks applied for the renewal of the license of the King's Arms, Llandudno, the holder of which had been convicted of selling adulterated spirits, Mr Marks contending that as the license had not been endorsed no offence had been com- mitted against the licensing laws.—The Magi- strates' Clerk (Mr James Porter): It is a good ground of objection.—The bench renewed the five licenses, with a caution to the holders of the Tygwyn and the Albion, who had been convicted for permitting drunkenness. FOUR APPLICATIONS FOR NEW LICENSES. The Bench then proceeded to hear four applica- tions for new licenses, the opposing solicitor in each case being Mr David Owen, Bangor, who appeared on behalf of the Arvon Temperance Association. Mr Chamberlain applied on behalf of Mr Isaac Wilson Griffith, grocer, Gloddaeth-street, Llan- dudno, for a retail "off" beer license.- Mr Griffith, after giving evidence as to his annual shop-rental (^140) etc., admitted in reply to Mr Owen, that the only inconvenience the public suffered from his being without a license was that unless they wanted three dozen bottles of beer at a time they could not be served by him. They could, however, go elsewhere, but if they did they would probably get their groceries at the grocers's shop where beer in small quantities could be obtained. Mr Chamberlain then applied, on behalf of Mrs Ann Price, for a spirit-license for the Cross Keys Inn beerhouse, Penrhynside.—Mrs Price said that she had been the tenant for 27 years, and 3 years ago the house had been re-built. The bigger part of her customers were visitors. She was often asked for Scotch whiskey, and often people would go away thirsty rather than take anything else. Cross-examined, the witness said that spirits could be got at another licensed house not fifty yards distant. This was the third time of asking for a spirit-license. Mr Richard Bellis renewed an oft-repeated application for a full license for the Clarence Hotel, Llandudno. On behalf of his client, Mr John Smith, Mr Bellis said that there was a strong demand for it. The hotel contained 55 bedrooms, and a very large dining-room, etc. Mr Smith
