NANTWICH MAGISTRATES' & TENANTS' AGREEMENTS. + At Nantwich Adjourned Licensino Sessions. w-i aday» Burder, representing Messrs. Wilson and Co., brewers, Newton Heath, Man- chester, appeared with respect to an objection taken by the magistrates at the annual licensing meeting to a clause in the agreement xr i ,tenant °f the Bowling Green Inn Nantwich, one of Messrs. Wilson's houses' giving the owners power to get rid of the tenant where the latter permitted any act to be done whereby the licence was liable to be forfeited, the magistrates holding that the tenancy should only be terminated upon the conviction of the licensee.—Mr. Roundell said the clause gave the brewers an unfair power which they ought not to have, while it worked great hardship in the case of the tenant.—Mr. Burder submitted that the clause was onlv a moral power in the bands of the owners, and said a tenant could not be got rid of without three months' notice, the owners only having the power of re-entry upon conviction of the tenant. This agreement was one of 300, in which the same clause had been introduced during the last 15 years.—Mr. Roundell: That is not thf case now. The clause has been objected to elsewhere, and it has been struck out in accordance with the views of the magistrates. Mr. Burder said the clause was accepted at Manchester and other places.- Mr. Roundell: I have considered the subject, and pretty well know.—Mr. Martin, solicitor, who was concerned in a similar objection, which the owners had met, pointed out that the clause was introduced in order to secure the proper conduct of the house.—Mr. Roundell said the magistrates held the view that the brewers had no right to subject a tenant to an injustice which rendered him liable to be turned out at any moment. The magistrates required brewers to put in respectable tenants to begin with. Some brewers would put in a man of straw, and take their chance of putting him out in this way.—Mr. Burder pointed out that where the owners of a house suspected a tenant of permitting betting, they ought not to be ex- pected to with until the tenant was convicted before gettting rid of him. As their worships put it, where a man conducted his house badly without being convicted, he was to remain as the tenant, but where a conviction ensued the licence at the next annual sessions might be refused, as had happened at Manchester.-The magistrates, after privately deliberating, adhered to their former ruling, amending the clause so that it can only take effect nnnn conviction of the tenant. -r--
