County Licensing Committee. The only business before the County Confirming Licensing Committee, who sat at the Sessions House, Usk, on Monday, under the presidency of Sir Henry Iather Jackson, Bart., was an applica- tion by Mr William Charles Follett, secretary of the Tredegar Iron and Coal Company, Limited, for the confirmation of a provisional grant of a license for the sale of intoxicating liquors on premises about to b constructed at Abertyaswg, in the Rhymney Valley, to be known as the McLaren Hotel. The license had been granted by the Tredegar justices, and the application was of a formal character. Mr Corner, instructed by Mr J. Alex. Shepard, Tredegar, appeared for the company, and Mr Horace Lyne wa'ched the proceedings on behalf of the Chief Constable. Mr Corner explained that the application was made in the interests of the employes of the company, who had obtained from Lord Tredegar the lease of a coiiai(lerable quantity of land at Abertyssw--a place which was practically isolated, the nearest public-house being about a mile and a quarter distant. Abertysswg was a growing district, and wirhiii the last three years 132 houses had been erected, 65 were in course of erection, and 50 or 60 had been given out to contractors. The company's McLaren Collieries were about 20 ) yards distant, and at present about 1,000 men were engaged there, which number, however, would soon be increased to 1,600 Refreshments of a non-intoxicating kind would be served at the new hitel, which would be supervised by the company's own manager. The lowest estimate for the building was 23,500. The company were prepared to make a provision that no intoxicants should be sold before woikiug houra in the morning, but only tea and coffee. After hearing several witnesses, the Committee confirmed the provisional grant for a license on the understanding that the company would keep the premises in their own hands, and that they would, further, give an undertaking that a board should be fixed in a conspicuous position, notifying that no intoxicating liquors would be sold, either on or off the premises, before eight o'clock in the morning, except in the case of illness or serious accident. The necessary undertaking was given.
