Owen, Edward Hughes, Dr Edwards, and Mr Edward Rees, sat to hear applications from the local publicans for an extension of their hours on the three days of the Royal Visit by two hours —from ten until twelve o'clock, and Mr Edward Jones of the Lion Hotel, applied for an occasional license from the Court to sell intoxicating drinks in the Town Hall.—Letters opposing the applications were read from Rev Josiah Jones, Rev D. H Hughes, Machynlleth Women's Temperance Union, Maen- gwyn Calvinistic Church, Maglona Lodge of Good Templars, Wesleyan Church.— The letters and petitions reminded the Court that at Aberystwyth similar applications were refused.—Mr Edward Jones of the Lion Hotel, pointed out that at Aber- ystwyth the hotels and other places were open until eleven o'clock. He strongly repudiated the insinuations contained in the letters that the repu- tation of the Machyni'eih licensed victuallers would be sullied if these applications were granted. Ever since he had been in the town he had never known a single case against a licensed victualler, and with all due deference to the rev gentlemen he considered that it was too bad to the licensed victuallers of the town.—Mr Edmund Davies asked if the rest of the publicans were willing that the occasional license should be granted.—Mr Edward Jones pointed out that none but he had applied in answer to the Executive Committee's invitation. Personally he would have more than he could manage, but he was going to supply refreshments for the sake of the strangers who would be in the town.—The Bench retired to consider their verdict and upon returning into Court said that the applications would be refused.—Mr Edward Jones repeated that it was not for their own benefit that they asked for it; he was pleased to say that none of them had come to a state of poverty that they had to work until 12 o'clock at night in order to make a living (hear, hear, from the licensed victuallers).
