THE CLUB NUISANCE AT SWANSEA. Meeting of the Watch Committee. The monthly meeting of the watch committee of the Swansea Corporation was held at the Guildhall on Tuesday. The Mayor (Mr W. Williams) presided.—On the recommendation of the head constable, a vote of thanks was given to several persons for valuable services rendered the police in extinguishing the fires which had re- cently raged in the town. Mr CHAPMAN desired to call the attention of the committee to the number of clubs which had of recent years been opened in Swansea. At pre- sent, he said, any person can sell excisable articles by just goin,- through the form of getting up a club and writing to the Inland Revenue authori- ties, who had no power to refuse a licence to a club. He believed it was the duty of the watch committee to take cognizance of this state of things, and he suggested that it was the duty uf the council to take some steps with a view of soliciting further legislative action on the matter.—The Mayor agreed with Mr Chapman that the present mode of conducting clubs made them a nuisance. Many of them were quite unnecessary, and a great injustice to respectable licensed victuallers.—Mr Chapman would like the question to go before the council, and he offered to put a notice on the agenda of the next meeting. —The Mayor suggested that a communication be sent to the Home Secretary on the question.-A.ir Lewis asked Mr Chapman if he wished to stop all clubs.—Mr Chapman replied that he did not. He only wanted to abolish all the bogus c.ubs. All clubs should, in his opinion, bo licensed in the same way as public- bouses, and then they would be under the super- vision of the police. Ultimately it was resolved, on the motion of Mr CHAPMAN, seconded by the MAYOR, That in the opinion of the committee, further legislation was desirable as to the licensing of so-called clubs, and that the attention of the Home Secre- tary be called to the matter with a view of all clubs selling excisable articles being placed under legislative control."
