MOLD LICENSED VICTUALLERS' ASSOCIATION. ♦ The quarterly general meeting of the Mold and District Licensed Victuallers' Association was held at the Swan Inn, Flint, on Thursday, and was followed by a meeting, to which the members of the trade generally had been invited. A large attendance included Messrs. R. Morris (Mold), chairman of the association J. Simons (Mold), vice-president; J. S. Swift (Mold), treasurer J. B. Marston, J. M. Lowsby (Mold), J. R. Rae (of the National Trade Defence Fund), J. Hill, T. Price, H. Prince, D. O. Davies, T. James (Mold), J. Forester (Northop), O. Ellwood (Queen's Ferry), R. Harrison, J. Brady, Rogers, Captain Williams, H. O'Neil, David Williams, — Hughes, S. Wilkinson (Flint), and — Patton. The Chairman, in introducing Mr. J. R. Rae, congratulated the association on the attendance, and dwelt on the necessity of licensees combining in face of the opposition of the present day. He pointed out that police authorities, as a rule, appreciated these associa- tions, as they tended to influence licensees to conduct their business satisfactorily, and he urged members to endeavour to increase the membership of the association. Mr. J. R. Rae said he was pleased to see the association increasing, and endorsed the chair- man's remarks as to the necessity of combina- tion. He referred to the strong opposition from teetotal fanatics, deprecated the methods of vigilance societies, &c., and remarked that as a rule where there was cohesion among licensed victuallers, such tacticians met with failure. He warned licensees that, in the face of certain recent events, they must be prepared for emer- gencies next year, and stated in reference to the Dover case all costs would be borne by the parent association in London. He referred to the defeat of Sir W. Harcourt's Local Veto Bill, and remarked that the same or a similar measure did not appear in the Liberal address in connection with the coming election in Denbighshire, emphasising the utility of combination among licensed victuallers, as the downfall of that measure was due to the united action of the trade. He commented at length upon the evidence given by opponents of the trade before the Royal Commission, and by the trade itself, all of which conclusively proved that the licensed victuallers generally conducted their business in a highly satisfactory manner, this being endorsed by magistrates, magis- trates' clerks, and others all over the country and he anticipated that when the verdict of the Royal Commission was given, it would be found to be entirely in favour of the publican. He alluded shortly to bogus clubs, and to the unequal law which prevented magistrates holding shares in railway companies from adjudicating on licensing matters, whereas the magistrate who publicly avowed his intention to harass the trade was allowed to sit with a prejudged and biassed mind. He advised the association te repudiate the action of those publicans who gave presents of toys and sweets to children in order to secure trade, and to meet the wishes of the magistrates as regarded the serving of children as far as possible, and to do their utmost to discourage the practice. He concluded by suggesting that every member should do his utmost to introduce a new member at the annual general meeting to be held in December, and wished the association continued progress. Mr. J. B. Marston (solicitor to the associa- tion) remarked it was true the defendants in prosecutions for breaches of the law were invariably non-members of the association, thus shewing the moral effect of such associations. Mr. Marston went on to report he had attended six Brewster Sessions on behalf of this asso- ciation, and the police testimony redounded greatly to the credit of licensees on all sides. He warned members and others that according to the rules deliberate infringement of the law would not be countenanced by the association, and that in such cases the association would refuse to assist. He referred to the contradictory position of the memorialists at Holywell, who, while accepting the report of the police as satisfactory, persisted in present- ing their petition to the magistrates requesting a diminution of the licences. A cordial vote of thanks was passed to Mr. J. R. Rae, to which he suitably replied, and a similar compliment was paid to the chairman.
