Licensing Business at RhyL THE TENANCY AGREEMENTS QUUTIOtt AGAIN A HOUSE FOR Y.4 A YEAR. At the Rhyl Petty Sessions on Tuesday, Dr W T Girdlestone presiding, two licensing cases, which had been adjourned from previous courts in order that the tenancy agreements might be produced, occupied the attention of the Bench for some time, the proceedings being of an animated character. The Birmingham Arms. The application for the final transfer of the Birmingham Arms, Wellington Rond, from W H Hughes to William Evans was dealt with first, Mr Joseph Lloyd appearing for both parties. The agreement was of a lengthy nature, and the question arose as to the need for it being read through. 0 Mr W J P Storey thought it would be waste of time to go through the agreement, and added that nothing of the kind had ever been insisted upon before, The Magistrates' Jlerk (Mr Oliver George) said that each case must be dealt with on its own footing. The Licensing Act of 1902 re- quired that the agreement between landlord and tenant should be produced. Mr W Elwy Williams, who accepted the responsibility for the adjournment of the case, said there was an idea abroad that the owners of tied houses did not deal generously with their tenants, and he thought the Bench should avail themselves of the power they hid of as- certaining whether the tenants got fair treat- ment under these agreements. The first question I was whether the incoming tenant was a bona fide tenant or merely a mirager-wa,3 he liable to be put out of the house in a very short time ? In the second place, was tho agreement pro- duced the only agreement between the parties ? It was possible that there might be a private] agreement respecting the sale of beor and so forth. If the agreement produced was the only one existing between the parties he thought it ought to be endorsed by the court, as was contemplated by the Act. Mr Storey Docs Mr George adviso that wo ought to endorse this agreement ? The Clerk Yes, but what is the good of doing so unless it if read ? Mr Storey said it seemed to him a piece of absurdity. Mr Elwy Williams But the Act provides for it. M Storey The Act has been in operation two years, and this is the first time this question has been raised so far as I am aware. Mr Elwy Williams Then you have not been doing your duty. Mr Lloyd My friend has a similar applica- tion to make, and he has an agreement which will take three-quarters of an hour to read (laughter). Mr Storey Well, if these agreements are to be read I shall retire, as I have not the time to sit here listening to them. What I can't under- utand is why these agreements have not been read before if they should be rend. The Clerk The justices deal with each case on its merits. Mr Storey Then let us tako a vote of the Bench on the matter. After further discussion the tenant, William Evans, was; called and informed the Bench that the agreement produced was the only one. Mr Elwy Williams Are you a bona fide tenant or only a manager ? Mr Evans I am a tenant. Mr Elwy Williams Under what notice ? The Clerk read the clause relating to the determination of the tenancy, which provided that it could be terminated by the tenant giving three months' notice or by the landlords (Messrs Ind Coope & Co.) giving a month's notice. Mr Elwy Williams Three months on one side, and the man can be put out in a month at any time. The Clerk That is so. Mr Storey thought it a very necossary pro- vision. The man might commit an offence which would render it desirable that the landlords should got rid of him as soon as possible. Mr M A Ralli: Are you satisfied with the agreement ? Mr Evans Yes. Mr Elwy Williams Is the rent stated ? The Clerk JE48 per annum, payable quar- terly. After the observation of the Clerk that that was only one out of the 34 provisions in the agreement, the Bench decided to grant; the application and to endorse the agreement with- out reading it through. Mr Lloyd said ho raised no objection to the endorsing of the agreement, but he submitted 1 that the Act did not provide for the Bonch to touch it. A House of a Yaar!y Renta! of £4. Application was next made for the final transfer of the licence of the Crown Inn, Trelogan, from Win. Parry to W II Blythin. Mr J LI Williams, agent to Mr Lloyd Price, produced the agreement, but on being exami- ned by the Clerk it was found not to bear Mr Price's signature. This discovery gave rise to the question whether the landlord's signiture appeared on the other agreement, and it was stated that it did not, which led to another animated d'sHus- sion on the Bench. It was decided, however, to hear what the parties in the present case had to say. In reply to various questions Mr Blythin said he was tho tenant of the hon.e and was subject to six months' notice, or 14 days notice for any infringement of the Licensing Act. The rent was £4 per annum. Mr Elwy Williams thought that the Assess- ment Committee in whoso district the house was situated ought to have their attention called to the rental of the hoase. Mr J LI Williams: The house is not assessed at that rental. Eventually this application was also granted, and the agreement endorsed as in the previous case. Mr Elwy Williams insisted upon the record- ing of his protest that all agreement:; in cases of this sort ought to be read by the court.

Rhyl Petty Sessions. RE APPEARANCE Or JACK Y SA!.A AND OTHER I WELL-KNOWN CHARACTERS. TuKsnAW—Before Dr W T Girdlestone (in the chair), and Messrs W J P Storoy, John Foulkes, J H Ellis, M A Ralli, R C Enyon, W Elwy Williams, and A L Clews. The New Licensing Act. A circular letter was read from Mr R Brom- ley, Clerk of the Peaco for Flintshire, asking the Bench to appoint one of their number to act on the committee appointed by the Court of Quarter Sessions to inquire into the pro- visions of the Licensing Act; of 1904 and to frame rules under the same. On the proposition of the Chairman, seconded by Mr Ralli, Mr Perks was appointed to re- present the Bench on the committee. The Big Rate." ( Several rate defau'ters appeared before the Bench, and in each instance the usual order was made. Mr J F Bayliss, deputy clerk, ap- pearcd for the Rhyl Urban District Council in all the cases. Jack y Bala again. John Jones, better known as Jack y Bala, appeared to answer a charge of having threatened Mary Batchford, a married woman living at 60 Victoria Road. Complainant stated that on the 19th ult, whilst passing along Bodfor Street, she met defendant, who said to her I'll finish you for sending me away in the way you did." She was afraid that defendant would do her harm. Defendant began cross-examining complain- ant by asking hor to prove to the Bench that her name was Batchford and not Allen. Complainant retorted that she could produce I her marriage lines if necessary. Her first husband, whose name was Allen, was dead. Defendant was informed that such a question as he had put was irrelevant to the case, but he maintained that the Bench should make it their business to find out what this woman's character really was. Edith Williams, a young woman, was called to corroborate complainant's story, and added that defendant threatened her in the same way. Defendant requested this witness to inform the Bench how she got her living, but she made no answer. After further allegations by defendant against both women, the Bench adjourned the case for a fortnight, their opinion being that defendant was not fit to plead that day. At the same time they warned him of the conseejuencas of any misbehaviour in the interval. Wife versus Husband. In the case of Jane Jones, of Illier View, Doganwy, who summoned her husband Edward Jones, labourer, 4 Emlyn Grove, Ilhyl, for desertion, Mr Joseph Lloyd, who appeared for Mrs Jones, asked the Bench to adjourn the case for a month. Both parties were willing for that course to be taken, and possibly it might not come before them again.—Granted. Drunkenness. Cornelius Jones, plasterer, 3 Abbey Street, was summoned for drunkenness in Abbey St. on the 12th ult.P.C. J E Hughes proved the case, nnd Inspector Peirson le >ortad four pre- vious convictions against- defendant, who was now fined 53 and costs. School Attendance. Moses Parry, collier, Rhewl Fawr, Ffynnon- groew, was fineel 5s and Gs costs for having neglected to send his child regulaily to school, the case being proved by John Roberts, school attendance officer for the district. More about the Cooos Brothars. Isaac Jones, labourer, Cefndy Road, was charged with having used threats towards John Evans, groundman in the employ of the Rhyl Golf Club, on the golf links on tho 16th ult and Thomas Jones, labourer, Penycofndy, was charged with having assaulted the same com- plainant at the same time. Mr H P Williams, who appeared for Evans, stated that on thel afterllColl of the date in; question complainant and his son were at work at the west end cf the golf links when they saw defendants some distance eastwards helping themselves to some fencing stakes belonging to the Club. The men were warned by complain- ant's son not to take any of the timber away, but they took no notice of him. An alterca- tion between complainant and the men followed, and picking up one of the stakes which he had dropped Isaac Jones said to complainant, I have a good mind to open you, you devil." Complainant next followed up Thomas Jones, who was walking off with eight posts over his shoulder. After a few words between the two Thomas Jones dropped the timber and struck complainant in the mouth with his fist, causing it to bleed. Complainant having borne out this statement, both defendants gave evidence en their own behalf. They maintained that it was firewood from the shore, and not any of the Golf Club's property, that they were carrying off. Isaac Jones denied being on the links at all, and said that complainant was the provoking party. He also denied threatening complainant. Thomas Jones denied deliberately striking complainant, or that he made his mouth bleed, though he admitted there was a scuflle. Moses Williams, joiner, Cefndy Road, corro- borated defendants' versions of the case. Mr H P Williams called Mr Wild, secretary of the Golf Club, to prove that complainant's mouth was bleeding freely. Defendants were allowed considerable latitude by the Bench, their behaviour at times being very disorderly. They failed, however, to con- vince their worships that they were the inno- cen ts they represented themselves to be. Isaac Jones was bound over to keep the peace for six months, himself in the sum of £10 and a surety for EZi, and in default of the Costs, 163. 61, he was sent to prison for 14 days. Thomas Jones, against whom a long list of convictions on a variety of charges was read 'I out, was fined 10s and £ 1 2s. Gd. costs, with the alternative of a month's imprisonment. Punching- and Kicking. George Wardle, rag gatherer, 186 Vale Road, I failed to appear in answer to a charge of having assaulted David Jones, labcurer, 190 Vale Road. Complainant stated that whilst proceeding along Vale Road on the 19th ult he was set upon by defendant, who without any provoca- tion whatever struck him with his list and kicked him in tho back. He knew of no reason at all for the assault. The Bench imposed a fine of R2 and 98 costs, with the alternative of a month's imprisonment. His 20th Appearance. Moses Williams, joiner, Cefndy Road, was charged with drunkenness and disorderly behaviour in High Street last Friday evening. P.C. Wm Davies stated that he caught defendant, who was the worse for drink, fighting with another man, who was locked up and dealt with the next clay. He afterwards saw defendant being assisted home by a woman. P.S. Roberts also gave evidence as to the drunkenness, which was denied not only by defendant, but by a woman named Annie Roberts. Inspector Pearson having remarked that there were 19 previous convictions against defendant, a fine of 5s and Gs costs was im- posed, 14 days' imprisonment being the alternative.

I THE Royal Alexandra Hospital and convalescent tiotve, Rhyl APPEAL FOR 92,000. TO THE EDITOR OF THE RHYT, JOURNAL. y;r Will you kindly allow us to appeal through your columns on behalf of this Hospital, which ia in urtront need of assistance at the pre- sent, tims ? la providing and equipping the admirable new buildings, which have been erected by public r.ufcseriution at a cost of over £ 40,000, a debt of f.3,000 has been incurred, and the interest upon this is ft heavy charge. The Duke of Westminster, as president of the hospital, has generously off,red to head a sub- scription list for the purpose of wiping off thie j debt with a donation of £ 1,000, and the Com- mittee teel that a strenor.3 effort must now be mittee teel that a strenous effort must now be made to obtain the remaining 12,00(1 nquired. Local resources have already been taxed to I their utmost, and we may point out tha.t this If not a local institution, nor is it merely a convales- l cent home. It is, in fact, one of the very few seaside hospitals in the country. Its plant and appliances ate exceptionally complete; including among other thing the Finsen lamp for the treat- ment cf lupus and there is an excellent staff of doctors and nurses. Consequently, as treatment by the sea is almost indispensable tor certain forms of complaint, this hospital may be said to meet a special need, and to bs doing a work of widespread public usefulness. For more than thirty years patients have been received here from all parts of the couutry, and more than three-fourths of them have come from English towns. Last year, for example, 550 patients came from England, and only 171 from Wales. We therefore feel that we may confid- ently appeal to the liberality of our English friends for the comparatively small sum that is still required. H. R. H. the Trince of Wales, in opening the new buildings in 1902, strongly advocated the claims of this hospital for more general support. —Yours, &c., AnTHCR MESHAM, chairman.

Sea Erosion. A WARNING TO RHYL. The sea encroachment question is becoming one of fuch vital importance to Rbyl people that they cannot afford to ba heedless of the warning which comes to them from ot ier phces which have suffered from erosion of the coast. J ut now, when tlii subjidencj of the beach on the t)wn side of the entrance to Yoryd Harbour is giving the Council some anxiety, the fallowing account of what has happened on the South Coist is sure to interest them, a"d possibly may avaken the district fully to its responsibilities in this matter The village <f Hallsands, in South Devon, is gradually being washed away by the eDcioiching 8ei. Three years ago, come contractors were allowed to dredge the pebble beach f )r shingle to he used at new harbiur wor^s. The dredging operations caused the beach to sink several feet, but the true extent rf the mischief done did not become apparent till really bid weather stt in. Then, from sweeping the beach bire to encroach- ing upon the quays was but a start, step, and soon the waves weto tearing'at the f>utd..tions of the houses themselves. At this juncture a new sea-wall wis built, but it was not sufficient to save the viiluge. Old Ifallsands is doomed, and a pnbh subscription has boen started, and well responded b, for the parpos- of building a new vill )ge on the top of the cliff, aft r hnr- tlreds of pou:,ds have been thrown away in deferce wOIks that were thought of t)o late. In seeking to combine with other authorities in doing something t) arrest the inroads of the sea, the Rhyl Council are only doing what autho:i ies in other pirts of the country hive found it necessary to do. Recently, the Lscal Government B,)ard wrote to the Isle of Wight- Ilural District Council, stiting that they had had under cmsideration the leport mida by thsir Iuspector (Colonel Hipper) with regard t) tha conditiou of the beach at Freshwater B tv. The Inspector repotted that there w.-s immedi te danger of the sea breaking through the existing hank, and flowing down the Valley of the Yar. so as to cut off Freshwater acd TdLmd from the rest (f the i.-land. The situation is cleaily one of some gravity," added the writer, and I am to suggest that the Distik't Council should at once give the matter their serious atten'.iu! From an insp c tion the other d-iy the Coun-il found that the sea-wall is bing rapidly undermined, and oil the Stag Rock, or eatt side cf the bay, there is a complete breach of several f ?et. The esplanade itse!f is in a state of chaos, huge blocks of concre'e having been torn asund. r. Kvidsnce was given by lojal fishermen showing that the sea a few years ago swept over the esplanade, and flood -d the road in the rear to the depth of three feet, so that boats and carriages were freely used by those who were compelled to get ab 1Ut, It was also stated that on the occasion referred to two canoes g, t right through from tin bay to Yarmouth. Tfcecbaiimau of the Road Committee suggested that it was only by combination that pivt-ctive walks could be carried out. The War Department, the County Council, the Rural District Council, Freshwater its-it, and the local landlords mm-t combine in an effort t) avert the further encroachment of the sea. It was under- stood that a ccheme on these lines will shortly be introduced.

I Old Rhyl Schoolmyster's Death On the night of the 144-.h ult, the death took ph-ce at Carnarvon, with alarming suddenness, of Mr J W Jones, the North Weiss superintendent of the Prudential Afsurance Company. He was at home, having just dealt with some correspondence, when he compUined of shortnfss of breath, one of the symptoms of a serious illness which he had undergone eoveral months back. Doctors were r ctlled, and Mrs Jonep, who was attending a con- cert at the time, was hurriedly summoned, and she arrived orily to find herhusbind passing away. The ciuee of desth was ftiluro of the heart. Mr iones, who was 61 years cf age, was a native of Hulybe*d. la early life he was one of the pion- eers of the Tonic Sol-fa movement in the priaci- pality. In 1S62 he entered the Bxngor Norml C liege for traiiirg a schoolmaster, and seoureel an appo ntment liS headmaster of the Rhyd Lewia British S.;hool, In South Cardiganshire. In 1S55 I e removed to Rhjl, where he was appointed head- master of ttii British Sch(ol. In 1870, however, he relinquished the teaching profession for a business career, accpling the post of assistant superintendent of tho l'rudantial Assurance Company, and in 1874 he succeeded to the control of the North Wales district, being located first at Newtown, Montgomery, then at Wrexham, and finally, lu 1876, at Carnarvon. Immediataly after adopting his new profession he married Miss Amos, only daughter of the late Mr Thomas Amos, of Rhyl, and she now with six children mourns his loss. One of the daughters married Mr Gr-itton, The Pharmacy, olfieen Street, Rhyl. He wss a prominent member of the Wesleyan Methodist body. A few months ago Mr Jones was the recipient, of a handsome presentation from the cffioials of the Prudential, with congratulations on his recovery. Mr Jones's death will be an exceed- ingly severe loss to the Conservative party in the district. He was a politican of a highly intelligent typn, and was one of the most eloquent and argu- mentative platform speakers in the vernacular which the party possessed. The funeral took place on Monday, the body being conveyed to Holyhead, the deceased's nativs home, for inter- meut. A large concourse of the hading inhabitants of the town and district gathered in Castle Squars, Carnarvon, to take part in the funeral procession to the railway station. The service at the house was conducted by the Rev Ov(,n Williams, the oldest Wesleyan minister in the district the Rev Ishmael Evans, President of the Welsh Wesleyan Synod and the Rv W G Jones, pastor of the Welsh Wesleyan Church at Carnarvon, the whole of the service being in Weigli. The cortege ar- rived at Holyhead at one o'clock, and was met by hundreds of people. business was suspended ir he town, and sympathetic demonstrations were eceral.
-r- CREW SENT TO DIE. SENSATIONAL REVELATIONS BY A FRENCH AUTHOR. The "Express" Paris correspondent says:—A bo-di has been issued under the title of Throe Years in the Buo Royale: Ministerial Morals," which is likely to create some sensation. One chapter is devoted to the loss of the Viennc in December, 1803. M. Ronliomme (the author) de- clares the crew was s-iit to death, and states that after the ship arrived at Roehefort in an uneea- v ci thy condition tbo captain reported the fact to th0 Maritime Prefect, who sent an urgent de- mand to Paris for authorisation of repairs. In spite of an urgent telegram from the Maritime Prefect, the Ministerial answer was s nt that the Vienne must leave immediately for Toulon.
==- .=:=- FIGHT ON THE SCAFFOLD. Two men were hanged in Demerara Gaol, British Guiana, on October 25th, after one of them had created a terrible eeene, fighting de.- perately for his life. His companion, who had hacked his wife to death in a fit of jealousy, submitted himself calmly and stoically to the executioner, but when it came to the turn of the second prisoner, an aboriginal Indian named Karuroo. who had shot, a man and then set fire to the hut: in which he lived, a fierce struggle ensued. When the hangman approached him he threw* him off, and although three other men were called in the murderer displayed almost superhuman strength, fighting for his life like a trapped wild animal and snapping with his teeth at all who came near him. Finally, he was strapped and his head muffled. In this position was laid on the trap-door, and so went to his doom. <
"s. Rhyl as a Winter Health Resort. Rhyl is rapidly acquiring a high reputa- tion for its climate in winter, Hitherto its advantages as a winter resi- dence have not been appreciated as they deserve, which I attribute to the fact that they have not been sufficiently made known, and I am convinced that the more they are considered, the more popular will it become as a health rosort. It stands almost unequilled for the salu- brity and dryness of its atmosphere, its exemp. tion from all kinds of epidemics, and its entire freedom from fogs. The small precipitation of rain, and absence of mist and fog io winter at Rhyl, is due, in the first place, to the Snowdonian mountains having condensed and caused the precipita- tion of the moisture of the rain winds, and secondly to the drying influence of the wide expanse of sandhills and the sand left between the tide marks, nnd the conse- quent absence of standing water. The dry and porous nature of the soil, of course, exercises a great influence on th warmth of its climate, as through the soil the rain percolates almost as soon as it falls, and but little, therefore, is left to cool and moisten the air by evaporation. The rainfall of Rhyl is remarkably small, and there is a very high record of sunshine, the average temperature being cooler in summer and warmer in winter than either at Torquay or Bournemouth. The long and lofty range of mountains traversing the whole of North Wales exercises a very important influence on its climate. The fall of rain in the mountainous regions far exceeds the fall in the immediate locality of Rhyl, and to this fact the town is to a considerable extent indebted for the abnorm- ally high temperature it enjoys through the winter months. 0 Many eminent doctors in the Luge English towns speak in the highest terms of the climate along the North Wales Ccast, and send their patients thither, to winter or recuperate during convalescence, and the late Dr Evans, of Birmingham, who during his lifetime was a frequent visitor to Rhyl, used to say that it was unrivalled in the United Kingdom as a residence for consumptive patients. I -ars ago, invalids were ordered to Tor- quay and Ventnor, until those health resorts being found too relaxing the more braciDg air of Bournemouth was discovered to be beneficial. And there is no doubt whatever that before many years have passed, the still purer and more bracing air of Rhyl will in many cases be preferred to that of either of the winter resorts I have mentioned. Another important advantage possessed by Rhyl is its accessibility, it being about three hou-s' ride from Birmingham, and the London and North Western Railway Company, who own the line by which our destination is reached, offer every facility in the way of cheip fares, for long or short periods, during the winter months. Rhyl is now an important town with a resident population of about 9,000. The principal streets and promenade are lighted with electricity the Town Band plays during the winter frequent concerts and entertainments take place; and there are golf, hockey, football acd social clubs, so that tbuse who believe the place is dull in winter will be most agreeably surprised, as they will be, also, at the low prices charged during the winter months at the hotels and boarding houses. I have visited Rhyl in almost every month of the year for periods of three months to ihree days at a time, and I fully believe that as a winter resort it cannet be surpassed, and the fact that it has been selected for a place of permanent residence by numbers of men of business and independent means proves it is a desirable place to live at all the year round, and as the grandness and beauty of its climate in winter become better under- stood, there will be few places more sought after as a winter resort.

orne uoiquity ot the Scot was the burden of Mi address to teachers and ethers interested in education, by Dr. Macnamara, M.P., at Stafford, on Saturday. Alluding to the question of scholarships he pointed out that in England there was one chance for everv 7C6 elementarv school children, as compared with one chance to every 163 at. Aberdeen. In an the groat cities of this country Scots were to be found at the head of great commercial establishments, banks or municipal works. At a meeting of the Lancaster Agricultural Society, on Saturday, it was unanimouslv de- cided to invite the Royal Lancashire Agricul- tural Show to Lancaster in 1906. The next show- is to be at Liverpool. It was ioointed out that a guarantee fund of £ 1,000 would be required Oe- sides the free use of fields with gas and water laid on. Towards the Li,ooo required about E500 was promised, including 200 from Lord Ashton, BJOO from the High Sheriff, and handsome eub- ecriptions from Colonel Foster, Jr. E. Barton, Mr. Coulston and others. Addressing a conference of educationists at Stafford, en Saturday, Mr. Macnamara said that there were rumours that the Government would seek to relieve the Welsh deadlock by new legis- lation iloiig the lines of the Bishop of St. Asaph's Bill, which passed its second reading without dissent in the House of Lords last session. The Bill might well form the basis of negotiation. The theologialllllust be firmly put aside.
