Fairfield Tavern. This license was adjourned on the application Ðf Deputy- chief constable Bradsbaw, who stated that in consequence of evidence which was adduced at an inquest held on Saturday, he had good reason for making the application. RENEWAL OF LICENSES. This being licensing day the licenses of the various beersellers and victuallers within the borough were renewed with the above exceptions. THE WYNNSTAY ARMS HOTEL. Mr John Bernard Murless applied for a renewal of his license for the Wynnstay Arms Hetel. Mr John Jones, solicitor, appearing on behalf of the Rev D. Howell, Vicar of Wreiham and Messrs J. M. Jones. Hugh Davies, B. Owens (Penybryn), R. C. Rawlins, W. Thomas, E. Jerman, and R. Cotton, opposed the application. On the applicant's name being called, Mr Jones asked if the license were intended to apply to the whole of the premises of the Wynnstay Arms. including the recently-built portion in Charles- street. Mr Murless: Yes. In reply to the bench, Mr Murless said that if he had known of the opposition to the renewal of his license he should have been professionally j represented. Mr Jones I am to ask if the house" that has been added to the Wynnstay Arms is not the j property of Mr Murless ? Mr Murless No it is Sir Watkm's. A controversy then arose as to the necessity for Mr Jones having given notice to Mr Murless of his intention to oppose the application, and ultimately it was agreed to adjourn the whok matter for three weeks. Mr Murless stated that he conveyed the new building to Sir Watkin. who subsequently leased the whole of the Wynnstay Arms' premi&es to the applicant. APPLICATION RRFUSED. David Jones, bricklayer, residing at Greenfield, applied for a license to sell teble beer. Mr-Jones opposed. In this case it was admitted by the applicant that the house had formerly been licenced, but that the same was forfeited, owing to the tniscon- duct of Jones, who was fined -£5 for selling 'beer to be consumed Hon" the premises, whilst the license only permitted him to sell off;" consequently the application was now refused. THE OLD THFEE TUNS." Mr John Bury appeared in support of, and Mr John Jones to oppose, an application for a pro- visional order to transfer the license of the Old Three Tuns Inn to some new and commodious premises to 'be erected near the present house. Plans were put in showing the contemplated im- I provements. Mr Bury said it was contemplated constructing a large inn at the rear of the present premises, which were in a very dilapidated condi- tion. and to give to the town 150 yards of roadway, which would be an improvement to that part of the town, as the house would front the contemplated new road from Penybryn to the railway station. It was simply a matter of allowing improvements to be made to property in this instance, for if the licensing committee refused the application the old dirty and dilapidated premises would be allowed to remain. Mr Jones aaid the public-house was one which, in the opinion of his clients, ought not to exist. It was a low, disreputable place, frequented by the inhabitants of those wretched places by which it was surrounded. Mr Bury objected to Mr Jones' remarks, inas- much as no notice of opposition had been given. The comntittee consulted together, and granted the application, expressing a hope that not only would it improve the premises but the locality and its inhabitants also. This concluded the business.
