PRESENTATIONS TO I SOLDIERS. AMMANFORD MAGISTRATES AND LICENSED HOUSES. The annual licensing session at Am- manford was held on Mondav, before Mr A. E. du Buisson and other mao-is- trates. The Deputy-Chief-constable (Mr John Evans) presented his annual report, which stated that there were 53 liceii- sed premises in the division. There was one public-house (including the two off-licences for wille and spirits) to every 470 of the populaton. Two licensed persons were proceeded against for infringing the licensing laws, resulting* in one conviction and one dismissal. During the year ended December 31, 1915, 126 proceedings were taken for drunkenness, resulting in 117 convictions, against 215 pro- ceedings, resulting in 203 convictions, during the preceding year, showing a decrease of 89 in the number of pro- ceedings and 86 in thellumoor of con- victions. The Deputy-Chief-constable. added that the majority of public-houses during the year had given entire satis- faction to the police, but there was one thing he would like to call atten- tion to in reference to which he had received complaints. This was the frequency with which licensed premises were used for concerts, etc., to make presentations to soldiers returning from the front on leave through sick- ness or otherwise. He had made in- quiries, and found there was ample accommodation in the various locali- ties where these concerts, which were very commendable, could be held and it would be an advantage if they were held outside public-houses. The Chairman said the magistrates were thoroughly in acoord with the deputy-chief-constable, and thought the practice should be very much dis- couraged; these entertainments should not be held in public-houses at all. There were several organisations about to be, or had been, started where these social enteretinments and concerts could be held, in the Y.M.C.A. or other premiges not licensed.
