PONTYPRIDD MAGISTRATES AND THE DRINK TRAFFIC. TO THE EDITOR. T, SIR,- Your correspoudent, ,Sober "-wlio still prefers to write in ambush under the above heading-m replying in your issue of Saturday to my letter of the 22nd instant, states that he did not complain of the puhlicaus, but only of the magistrates. Now, sir, I contend he could not complain of the bench in this case without including the publicans. The extension was not forced upon us by the magistrates, but upon an appeal to them by us, was, after due considera- tion, granted upon payment of the usual fees which go TOJSWELI that portion of the revenue which it seems your correspondent escapes contribu- ting to. The object of the extension was for the safety and protection of our licenses, fearing we we should not on such a festive season be able to clear our bouses in time to avoid the liability of prosecution. He very sarcastically remarks that we are a body of men whose aim of life is to reduce drunkenness; let him invest his .capital in an expensive house, and make himself thoroughly acquainted with the Licellsin Acts, and he will learn that it will not be in the interest of eaiety to his capital so invested to encourage drunkeu- ness, as it will have a tendency to imperil his licence and diminish the value of his capital while, on the other hand, if even his greatest bosom friend happens to get drunk, he will find his other customers will! < annoyed to be in his company and will leave the premises, so that it does not pay a publican to encourage drunken- ness, Your correspondent remarks that the publicans are turning heaven and earth to have tbo Sunday Closing Act repealed. I cannot answer for the mnjority of publican", but an for myself I will tell him openly, uumasked, and not in ambush, that nothing will be left undone, as far as I am concerned, to secure tberepeal of that most coercive measure. He further says very sarcastically, Those responsible "—meaning for drunkenness—" are the teetotallers, and other fanatics of the kind." Now, air, as far as Sunday drunkenness is concerned, he has, I think (although undoubtedly quite unintentionally) spoken in that remark a great deal of troth for instance, who but the teetotallers brought about the Welsh Sunday Closing Act? What but that act has brought about the increased convictions, as well as the new crime of impersonating travellers,for which 198 persons were convicted in the Pontypridd petty sessional division alone during last year, one of whom was accused of perjury and sentenced to one month's imprisonment; at the assizes for it? the leaving of home of young men on Sundays and engaging lodgings for the night, and some- times not returning until Tuesday? What caused the formation of so many clubs and shebeens in Cardiff and elsewhere the extraordinary increase of passengers, too, from Swansea to the Mumbles ?—I am, &c., A. PARFITT. Pontypridd, April 29th, 1889.
