CARNARVON LICENSING SESSIONS. I- THREE! LICENCES REFUSED1. At the adjourned annual sessions for the county division of Carnarvon on Satur- day, before Mr D. P. Williams and other magistrates, Mr Nee applied for a. renewal in respect of the Llanfair Arms, Groeslon, to which the police objected on the ground that a former licensee had been convicted. There was no complaint, against the present tenant. Mr Nee, on behalf of the owners, pointed out that not long ago about £600 was spent upon the house, which was now well conducted. Mr Jenkins (Messrs R. G. Davies and Jenkins) appeared for the police. The licence was renewed. The police objected to a renewal for the King's Head, Olwtybont, the licensee hav- ing been convicted for permitting drunk- enness. Mr Allanson appeared in sup- port of the application, which was e- fused. The magistrates also, had served notices of objection in five cases. The first was the Fort Tavern, Llanllyfni, on the ground of redundancy, there being no complaint lodged by the police. The house, is one of three in the village of Llanllyfni. Evidence relating to the facilities afforded by the house having been given, the Chairman inquired if there, was anybody in court desirous of I giving further evidence, Mr Allanson sub- mitted that as none but the magistrates had served a notice, of objection it would not be competent for anybody else to tender evidence. The Clerk; pointed, out that the Bench, if they chose, could call witnesses. Thereupon the Rev. Ceidiog Roberts, C.M. minister at Llanllyfni, was called. He believed that the house in question was quite unnecessary in the vil- lage. The licence was refused and referred for compensation. The remaining two houses in the same I village, the Quarrymen's Arms and the. King's Head, were objected to for the same reason. Mr Nee appeared for the owners and the tenant of the first, house, which had been conducted by the present licensee and his father for a, period of 47 years without any complaint on the part of the police. The second house, whose, tenant was represented by Mr Hamlet Roberts, was described as the only free house in that district "between Snowdon and the sea." A. churchwarden was also called to speak to the convenience, which the house, proved itself to cattle dealers and others. Both these licences were, renewed. Objection was taken to the Halfway Inn, a house situated on the high road between the villages of Penygroes and Talysarn. Mr T. W. Williams, of the former place, said that the house was wholly unnecessary. Mr H. Mienander Jones, a former quarry manager, gave similar evidence. Mr Nee (for1 the owners) Have you been here before opposing this house?- No. Have you ever done anything to raise a club or some other institution for the people who, as you say, are, tempted1?— No, no particular club1, but I do ail I can to advise them. But, you have not, spent any money to raise a, club for them %—No,. The licence was renewed. Mr Hamlet Roberts was for the licensee. The last case was that of Snowdon Val- ley Hotel, Llanberis, for whose licensee Mr Nee appeared. The Rev. J. Evans Owen and two other ministers presented evidence with a. view tc showing that the trade of the house as a house for visitors had fallen off considerably, and that at present the requirements of the place did not call for the house. On the other hand, witnesses came forwafrd to show that the ho,use was frequently made use of by travellers. The licence was refused, and referred for compensation.
