Magistrates and Drunkenness.


Magistrates and Drunkenness. THE IMMUNITY OF PUBLICANS. Speaking at the Temperance Conference at Abergele on Thursday, the Rev. Glyn Davies, Organds:ing Secretary for the North Wales Tem- perance Association, pointed out that Merion- ethshire was the cleanest county in North Wales as regards public-houses and drunkenness. Flintshire was the worst, and Denbighshire came next. He complained that the police did not seem to prosecute publicans in, the same pro- portion as they prosecuted drunkards, and stated that in Merioneth for II9 drunkards con- victed there were but two licensees proceeded against; Montgomeryshire, 146 to 2; Anglesey, 158 to i Flintshire, 264 to 5 CarnarvonsMare, 54q to 8 and Denbighshire, 612 to 6. Out of 1,848 persons convicted of drunkenness, 201 were women. (Shame.) He felt that the police should be more alert. The meeting passed a resolution to send a copy of the statistics to all the Benches of magi- strates, with a request that they would take ac- tion in the matter.
