H. M. STANLEY'S HOME. FAMOUS INN TO BE CLOSED. If the decision of the St. Asaph magis- trates arrived at on Monday is confirmed a famour tourist inn in Wales will be closed. The house is known by the sign of The Cross Foxes, Giascoed, Bodel- wyddan, but- it is more familiar to tourists as "Stanley's Old Home," from the fact that the mother of the famous explorer, Hir H. M. Stanley, lived there, and was visited by her son. In consequence of the great interest which tourists take in the inn throughout the summer there is great traffic to the house, and some objection has been raised to the state of things on Sunday. The magistrates accordingly suggested to the police at the last annual licensing1 meet- ing that objection should be made to a seven days' licence, and the matter came before the adjourned sessions on Monday at St. Asaph, when Mr Amphlett, on be- half of the tenant and the trustees of the Bodelwyddan estate, caused a surprise by stating that rather than consent, to a six days licence the trustees would raise no objection to the house being: referred for compensation, and left it to the Bench to consider whether or not the interests of the neighbourhood would be prejudiced by the closing! of the inn, seeing' the thousands of tourists who visited it. Mr Joseph Lloyd, on behalf of the police, said there was no complaint against the licensee, the only objection beiiiir to the doings of the tourists in the roadway and neighbourhood. It was felt that tourists could retain their thirst until they reached St. Asaph, three miles distant. By a majority the Bench decided to re- fer the house for compenstion.
