THE LIQUOR TRAFFIC. THE Temperance Party will learn with unmin- gled satisfaction that the motion adopted by the Standing Joint Committee, directing the attention of the police to the permission of drunkenness on ltaensed premises, is already beginning to have ,Sifect. This time of year is always one of peculiar interest to temperance advocates, and it is grat- ifying to know that no fre h license has been granted. At the Newtown Petty Sessions on Friday, two publicans were summoned and con- victed f serving liquor to drunken men, and their licenses were ordered to be endorsed. This strict- ness in carrying out the licensing laws may be -cousiderecl harsh, but the Newtown bench are to be complituent-ect on their determination to deal aeverely with all cases which are brought before them. No one would deny that innumerable men get dl-unk daily, and it is certain that in ninety- nine eases out of a hundred they do not get intoxicated in their own homes. The remaining conclusion is that they are served with drink over the bar at a public-house, and any measures which will prevent this pernicious practice should be adopted. If it is known that magistrates are determined to jnuke examples of all innkeepers who 11.1"" found guilty of this offence, it will act as a deterrent, and, with the knowledge that the police have been specially ordered to keep a sharp tlor offenders, much good will be done. His Honour Judge DAVID LEWIS ha. appointed 1 Mr. R. T. GRIFFITHS as registrar of Hay County Court. Mr. GRIFFITHS is an active Liberal, and the appointment is therefore considered an unde- niable proof of the impartiality of the new County Court Judge. WE are pleased to find that Miss BESSIE EVANS, of Builth (who is well-known to Newtown audiences), has won the prize for the contralto solo at the Chicago World's Fair. This is ex- tremely gratifying, especially when the number of competitors and the practically unlimited area from which they were drawn, are considered. Major GODFREY, the former Chief Constable of Montgomeryshire, has found that Welsh anti- tithepayers are, after all, not the most troublf- som" people to deal with. During the past week, the Derbyshire police, of which the Major is head, have had serious conflict with the colliers who are out on strike, and the aid of the military had to be obtained before the disturbers of the peace could be brought to a reasonable frame of mind. Unfortunately, the example of the *Derbyshire colliers has been copied in Yorkshire and South Wales, and property has been damaged to a large extent by the unreason ng mobs.
