I THE GROUNDS OF OBJECTIONS I were: Redundancy, not required by the public wants, not structurally adapted, in- sufficient provision of sanitary conveniences, etc.. On the ground of previous convic- tions, notices were also served on the Coast- ing Pilot and Colliers' Arms, Craigcefnparc. The superintendent did not consider the Ship and Castle (Loughor), the Coasting Pilot (Penelawdd), and Glanmor Inn (Pen- clawdd), required to meet the needs of the neighbourhood. There were three clubs in the district— all very well conducted—the Gowerton Con- servative Club, the Bristol Channel Yacht Club, and the Pontardulais and District Con- servative and Unionist Club. The Mumbles Liberal Working Men's Club had been struck off the register during the year. Applications for new licenses were received from H. P. Haggar, music and dancing 11- cence, Pontardulais and F. H. M. Thomas. Gowerton, for a similar license at Gower- tdn and for billiard licenses from James Thomas. Llysgwyn, Pontardulais; TUPert Talbot, Laurie Villa, Loughor; and Thos. Roberts. Temperance Hotel, Gorseinon. CORPORATION HOTEL, LOUGHOR*. I -1 This was the first case consiaerea. Supt. Lot-heren sa.id it was a very clean, commodious and well-conducted house, re- quired by t -he needs of the district- e Ship and Castie, Bush Hotel and Station Hotels were then dealt with, and in reler- enoe to THE RED LIO, _u_1 the superintendent said the baclc prennge5 ware in a very dirty condition, and that, and the fact that he considered ait least one house should go in Louffhor, were specified as the grounds of objection. The. superintendent was questioned mfSh a view to showing that fchesre was a good deal of ruew building goinig on in the district, besides the expanding Oaiedake and Baii-ly- glas collieries; that the- house possessed a convenient forecourt, that a club met there, end that the telephone was installed. Mr. J. B. John (rate collector) was called as to developments in the district; and Mr. Trevor Williams. Rural Council's surveyor, 5aid since 1911 127 plans for new houses had been passed. An estate, was d,e- veloped near the Red Lion witih about 200 "Vmn t.r) it.. I -1 THE CROSS KEYS. I The Superintendent eaid the drainage was in a very bad condition the house was dark nnd dirty, and in his opinion absolutely unfit for a licensed house—"the darkest licensed house I've ever entered." It was stated the Buffaloes met there. also the local Min- us' Federation Lodge, for the last 17 years, Rid that the takings were £ 17 a week. The house was also stated to be over 100 years old. Messrs. G. W. Baker (Buffaloes) a.nd W. Jenki.is (miners' lodge secretary) were called. The case of this house was ad- journed a fortnight. GLOBE INN. Good house, and appears to do a good pusiness, said Supt. Letheren. The Bench at this stage announced the decisio-n in the case of the Loughor licenses dealt with above, as follows:- Alllicenss granted, exoept in the cases of the Red Lion and Cross Keys. which were adjourned a fortnight. The Bench suggest- ed that licensed victuallers generally should inmrove th-3 ventilation of their premises. THE PENCLAWDD LICENSES. were then dealt with. Supt. Letheren re- ported very favourably on the Railway Inn, and in respect to the Coasting Pilot said the house was unlit and there had been a oonvic- tion against' the last licensee (who had since died), but that was not pressed, the chief objection being that the house was not re- quired. Mr. R. Jones (manager of the jTelinfoel Brewery Company) said the house had been, and was now being, renovated and they would carry out any suggestions made. The Royal Oak, Ship and Castle, and Glanmor Inn ("old house, rooms all small, and not required") were next re- viewed. For the license it was stated that it did a big trade for a beer-house. The court then adjourned for lunch. The houses taken after lunch were the Crofty Inn, Blue Anchor Inn (which the sit- perintendent considered to be required), and Colliers' Arms. All of the licenses were granted, except the Glanmor and Coasting Pilot, which were referred. The magistrates °oinmented strongly upon the dirty oondi- tion of the backyards in so many of the taom- that, came before them. v- BILLIARD LICENSES. A billiard license was granted to James Thomas; and the applications of Rupert Talbot and Thomas Roberts were adjourned. The music license applications were also ad- journed for a fortnight.
