Dewsland Brewster Sessions.


Dewsland Brewster Sessions. Light Business. The annual Brewster Sessions for the Dews- land Division were held in the Court House Mathry, on Friday afternoon, when the Chair- man (Mr Charles Mathias) presided and the other magistrates adjudicating were Dr Williams (St David's) and Messrs T B Rees, J Watts Williams, and G D Harries. Owing to the severance of Goodwick and other localities from the division, there was a great reduction in the amount of business to be transacted and, to all intents and pur- poses, the proceedings partook of purely formal character. Supt Rees Brinn reported that no licenses had been proceeded against during the twelve months, whilst the number of persons prosecuted for drunkenness had been 44, all of whom had been convicted. In reply to the Clerk he said he did not offer opposition to the renewal of any of the licenses. No opposition was, either, forthcoming on the part of the general public. The Chief Constable (Colonel Somers) re- minded the Bench that at the last adjourned Brewster Sessions, the renewal of the license of the Farmers' Arms, and the Carpenters Arms, St David's, had bean granted upon condition that the building was walled in from the entrance to the garden, aud said that whilst at St David's recently, he had visited the two premises, and had found that the Carpenters' had complied with the order, but that although the Farmers' had erected the wall a door had been placed in it, there- by leaving place just as open for people doing an illicit traffic as before. He had told the landlord that he should bring the matter to the notice of the Bench, but he now under- stood that since Tuesday the doorway had been bricked up. He asked the Bench to grant the renewal of the license conditional upon the doorway not being re-opened. In reply to the Clerk, he said that perman- ent masonry had been put into the doorway. Answering the Chairman, he said broken "glass had been placed on the top of both walls, and, in the case of the Carpenters Arms, the work had been done very well. Constable Morris- said the landlord had told him that they had carried out the orders of the brewers, who had told him that they were to have an entrance there. The Bench acted upon the advice of the Chief Constable. A temporary transfer of the license of the Prospect Hotel, St David's, wasjgranted to Mrs Elizabeth Jones, widow of the late licen- see, whose demise was recorded in our last issue. The annual licensing meeting was then ad- journed to that day four weeks thence.
