Sir ManU'ine Lloyd, Bromvydd, and Mi' Charles Lloyd reported having on several ccca.sffons visited Carmarthen Prison and found everything in perfect cider and received no complaints. Both visitors were re-appointed. LICENCE LEVY. The Licensing Commilitee reported that in the past year two licences had been referred for compensation-—Refresh- ment Rooms, Borth, and the Black Lton, Llanfihangel Geneu rgijyn. The Commit- tee renewed the licence of the Refresh- ment Rooms, Borth, and fixed compensa- tion for the Black Lion at L230. In August the Committee received from the Commissioners of Inland Revenue their decision in the eases of the Half Moon and Shipwrights Arms, both of Car- digan, who awarded the persons interested in the Half Mooil £ 175 and in the Ship- wrights Arms JB72 10s. as compared with £ 137 and £ 70 awarded by 'the Committee. The amounts had since. been divided Jw- tween ':he parties interested, but had not yet been paid owing to want of funds. Since the previous meeting the Committee had been able to pay JE74 in respect of he Cross Roads Inn, Llandyfriog. Com- pensation in respect of the following houses ref(,, *-r(-d in 1914 has still to be paid: — Half Moon, Cardigan. L175. Ship- wrights, Arms, Cardigan, JB72 10s. Plas- terers Arms, Cardigan, L213 and Rose I Hill, Llanarth, f-250, Black Lion, Llanfi- hangel (referred in £ 1915), £ 230, total, £ 846 10s. During the past year the Committee received from the Treasury £ 238 13s. 4d., being £ *138 13s. 4d. in re- spect of 1914-15 and £ 1C0 on account of 19.15-16, making a 'total of £ 6,879 since tho Act came into operations and of 'that total the Committee had paid L6,112 13s. in compensation. After payment of salaried and expenses the Committee had in hand t242 9s. Since the Act oame into opera- tion forty-eight licences had been taken away and of that number twenty had been refused without ccmpensaliiou. The Court would have to fix the rate of duty to be levied for the ensuing year. The previous rate was twenty-live per cent. of the maximum rate. The Chairman remarked thai:, after crediting the lialanef- in hand of £ 242, the sum of £ 700 still remained to be paid lor ccmpen-sation. The amount levied last year was the quarter of the full rate which brought in t238 15s. 4d. It was ne- cessary to do something as it was unfair to keep people out of their money. There was enough money lie pay for the Half Meon and Shipwright Arms, but L-ioo was required to compensate the three other houses and the question arose how to raise that sum. If no more houses were referred and the maximum was levied the amount procured would go a considerable way Itoward paying off the debt, or the Court eould obtain a loan with the sanction of the Secretary of State. He durst make no proposal him- self because other members of /the Court knew the county better than he did; but he thought some attempt should be made to pay off the debt. He had received two letters—one from the Rev T. E. Roberts, Shiloh, Aberystwyth, asking that a, depu- tation should be heard, and one from the South Cardiganshire. Monthlv Meeting asking that the full levy should be made. As far as he knew he did noii think the Court had ever received any deputation and personally he was not in favour of it. Air William George, Criecieth, said the deputation would leave it to him to say a few words in support of the petition of the letter. He appeared on behalf of the iScrth Cardigan-hire Temperance Union. I ^u'011. District Temperance Union, Glanau Ceri Temnerance Union, and the South and North Cardiganshire C.M. Monthly Meetings, each representing fifty churches. The Court would j therefore see ;hat he represented a. very considerable body cf public opinion, deeply interested in the administration of licensing law. The point he wished to emphasise was H.hat it was impossible for the Court and for the licensing sessions to administer those laws effectually unless the full levy was imposed. Ever since the famous decision is Sharp v Wakefield tho punciple was recognised that puhlie houses existed only as far as they are needed by the people and to supply the legitimate wants of a neighbourhood and not for prviate profit and that prmciple had been sanctioned bv the legislature in the Act of 1892 when a scheme was established enabling justices to do away with licences on compensation. It was therefore part of 'the scheme that justices should have a compensation fund to fall back upon, because if thev had no fund the whole scheme would fail. Look- ing for a moment at particular aspect of Cardiganshire, there was no fixed pro- portion of houses to population. A standard was once suggested in Pirlia- ment of one house to each 1,000 popula- tion. In Cardiganshire the ratio was left to the licensing justices. The Chairman thought the Court had nothing to do with that. The Court had only to do with licences: sent to them. Mr AViii. George said he was going to lead up to that and would point out that in Cardiganshire the proportion of houses to po-nulation was very much above the average. For Cardiganshire it was one house to every 250: for England and Wnles one to every 327, for Wales alone, one to every 340, and South Wales one to every 363. Husrhes said he did not know how tho se Mf-atistiVv bore on the question before the Court. There was a certain number of houses referred and compensation awarded find he submitted that, it was the dvttv of the Court to decide in the circum- stances the fair levy which should be made. The Chairman said that was so, but Mr George was probably leading up to some point. Mr Wm. George said he was fully aware that s-inco the publication of the report in lSC5 of the number of houses to population a veiy fair amount of progress had been made in Cardiganshire in the reduction at redundant houses. The Chairma n—Forty-eight. Mr Wm. George (continuing) said the proportion was still above the normal. He submitted that the licensing justices In coming should take the number of houses in the various districts into con- sideration with the view to further reduc- tion and for the Court to provide a fund to enable the justices to perform their dulies satisfactorily because it would be fujiile for the justices to reduce the num- ber of houses and find that there was no fund available for compensation. The Chairman referred to borrowing, but the Chairman would probably agree with him that borrowing was more or less abnormal and that the natural thing- was to make each year provide for its own compensa- tion The Chairman wid that was the usual course. Mr Wm. George added that that was the course which should be followed, unless there were strong reasons to the con- trary. In Anglesey the Home Secretary I refused sanction to a loan and for many years the authority of that county had to wait because it was unable to deal with licensed houses through having exceeded its fund. That was ntit a satisfactory position for a ccunty to find itself in. The Chairman said his view of borrow- ing was this--that the levy ought to ruffieo for the compensation of the year, Jf, however, the Court had to compensate a house at £2,000 or £2,EOO which would exceed the year's levy then the Court might fairly borrow a part of it. Mr Wm. George said he entirely agreed. In going through the list of Cardiganshire he found there was a large number of small public houses up and down the county and, according to his instructions, a large proportion of those houses might be done away with. Apparently it had been the policy of the county to do away wLh them from time to time; but as things were at the present the justices had been handicapped in dealing with a larger number because of the smallness ot the compensation fund. The houses re- ferred for compensation were quite small houses and apparently none of the larger houses had been dealt with at all. That was a. satisfactory state of things and he suggested that, unless there were strong reasons to the contrary, that it was the duty of the Court tto levy the full amount of duty in order to enable it to deal nidi the necessities of the case. What reasons to the contrary could be suggested? The present of all times was the best 'time for the Court to put its powers into operation and levy the full dutY. He did not know the reasons for milking a small levy in the paS. Possibly it was thought there would be a consider- able depression of trade in the county and thait publicans and others would be badly hit. Looking, however, at the conditions of the past year, it was obvious that that had not been the case. Aberystwyth, the largest district, had a time of unparalled prosperity for five or six months through the billeting of soldiers in the town. Cardiganshire was an agricultural countv and he did net. think it would be denied that agriculture had done well during the past year and agriculturists were passing through a period of prosperity. It was not known what the future had in store. Possibly there would be depression as the result of the terrible war. If so. his friend Mr Hughes could go to the Court and ask it to meet that depression by making a small levy. There was no money now to compensate houses and if the full levy was nd made that state of things might go on indefinitely. There was an injunction that economy should be exercised in every way. Tho Chairman—Even publicans. Mr Hughes—And brewers. Mr George concluded by saying that breathing- space had been given to the Trade and that the time had now come for the full levy. Mr A. J. Hughes, replying, said there was at present no more unfortunate class of people than that of the publican and brewer. They were passing through a terrible time. Theirs were a lawful trade and the country benefited from it every year to tlie tune of millions. He wanted no favour, but he asked that 'the question should be considered with an open mind. Mr Wm. George—Hear, hear. Mr Hughes added that the owners of houses, chiefly brewers, he admitted, were eidjitled to consideration and should not be unduly penalised. He admitted that there were a number of small houses in the county not perhaps doinfr good but eer Sainly doing no harm and SOllle of them had been referred and should be paid. If he was addressing the Court in normal times he should have little to say against the maximum levy. Economy was one of Ithe main points he urged. Was economy on the part of brewers not to be considered ? In the. past twelve months the beer (tax had been trebled. Malt had gone up thirty per cent. and all expenses had increased. From an economical point of view, then, was it the time to levy the full duty? In asking the Court not to levy the full amount he was only asking what 'the majority of courts in England and Wales had done. In some cases owing to the change of circumstances, to the need of economy, and to the war, no levy had been made and in other cases the levy varied from one-fifth to one-half. The Chairman did not think that really affected the question, because each county had to settle it for itself according to cir- cumstances. Tlie Act: said the compensa- tion authority shall—not may—in each J year make a levy unless it is unnecessary. In Cardiganshire it is not now unnecessary, Therefore it was for 'the Court to sav. what levy it would make. When £700 was owed he did not think the Court could say that a levy was not necessary. Mr Hughes said he. had fully recognised the necessity and was going to point out how it could be met. Mr Wm. George did not think Mr Hughes's statistics applied to Wales as he knew from his own knowledge of Meri- oneth and Carnarvon. The Chairman said Surrey refused to levy because it had £6,000 in hand. If Cardiganshire had £6,000 or JE600 the Court need not levy. Mr Hughes said no doubt the JB700 would have to be paid in a reasonable time, but he asked (the Court to make the payment as easy as possible. Cardigan- shire was a poor county and the maximum levy brought in a comparatively small j sum; but notwithstanding the smallness of the amount the police and the justices had been very active and he did not think there was an exceptional or gross case 111 the county which had avoided objection to its licence. There were small houses in the countv which would die of their own accord if left alone. In some wises there were publicans who would die of starva- then if they depended solely on their houses. Was the present the time to pay compensation and cause expenditure which could be avoided ? Why the Minister of Munitions preached economy and his brother went down to Lampeter Mr Wm. George—And preached the same thing. Mr Hugh- Yes. but economy on one side only. There were now no objections to licences. If ,there was need of more drastic application of the Act surely tho licensing justices would have taken "some steps. They had 'taken noi steps. All the Court had were two letters and his friend's observations and nothing less than the maximum would satisfy them. He asked the (Îüurt to continue the levy of last year of twenty-five, per cent., the produce of which with the balance in hand would tro a. long way towards clearing the sheet. Then there was 'the power to borrow. Mr D. C. Roberts said that twentv-fivo per cent. would produce £175, which with £240 in hand, would make about £400. The had, however, JB900 to nrovide. Mr Hughe renlied that twenty-five per cent, with the balance in hand spread over twf*. yea's would clear the sheet. Mr Wm. Geoi •ge—Without any further reduction of houses. Mr D. e. Roberts said as far as he oould see fifty per with the balance in hand would leave a deficit of £346 at the end of two years without any additional comnensatioTi. Mr Hughes said he would then with- draw his statement of two years and sav three years. A y^r in urcsent circum- was a negligible period. Th" Chairman said the compensation of the first two houses mentioned in the re- port came to £247 which could be wiped ,Ar with the balance in hand. Then there Ivere thr(;3 other houses at £699 compensa- tion and to clear that off in two years— 1..S the full levy brings in about £ 700—it .vould almost have to be the full levy. Mr Hughes suggested that the difficulty might lie met by a loan in order to give oasonable time. In reply to the Chairman, the Chief Constable, aid there were now military re- strictions in the county except in respect of wounded soldiers. After deliberation in private, the Chair- announced that the Court decided that the levy for this year should be the full amount. (tt. is understood that the decision was almost unanimous). Licensing Committee. The members of the Licensing Com- mittee were re-appointed. Lighting Order. The Chairman said ithere was a com- munication from the, Secretary of State relating to the new order of lights. The Court it&elf could do nothing in the matter except call attention to the drastic order which would come in force next month. Every vehicle in any street, highway, or road must carry lamps—one at the front and one at the rear. The order applied to bicycles, tricyclos and handcarts. The lamps must lie kef properly alight and the light must be visible at a reasonable distance. He believed that retailers liad not a sufficient sltock of lamps immediately available and consequently the Court hoped the police would use Sue discretion. Motor cars must not have head lights of anv description and not more than two lights showing at the front could be used on any vehicle. Visitors. On the nrc/pos-ition of Mr D. J. Wil- liams, Dr J. T. I.lovd, Trecraron. was ap- pointed medical visitor of licensed houses in the countv under the Lunacy Acts in the place of Dr Evan Lloyd, deceased.

Pugh, in his introductory remarks, said they were met to do what they could to contrihuto towards the funds of a Red Cross hospital at Aberystwyth. If the project fell through the proceeds were to be devoted to general funds of the Red Cross Society. He felt sure that with co-opera-' tion Cardiganshire would not fall behind in the general movement which was being made to assuage the sufferings of the men who had gone forth to sacrifice their com- forts and their lives for those at home. That made it obligatory on those at home to do all in their power to give the stricken and suffering ones every possible comfort and attendance. He hoped that they had not attended to seek bargains, but to con- tribute towards a deserving cause. He in vited the buyers to commandeer his ser- vices in re-offering the goods as often as they liked, a privilege that was taken advantage of in a large number of cases, including Mr. R. E. Jones, Mr. F. R. Roberts, Miss S. Lewis, and several others. Mr. Pugh's good-natured remarks and humorous sallies greatly contributed to keep the assembly in good humour and materinlly j contributed to the success attained.

Weish Agricultural Council
Weish Agricultural Council. k menJng of the Welsh Agricultural Council, Mr C. Bryner Jones, agricultural Commissioner for Wales, presiding, was held at Shrewsbury on Saturday. Mr W. Edwards, Anglesey, raised the question of the expenses of members being moru adequately met by Idle Board of Agricul- ture. Tlie Chairman said the sum allowed for the expences of the Council was £ 500, and on the proposition of Mr E. R. Davies, Pwllheli, it was agreed to ask for the ordinary Treasury allowances for members. Hie Board of Agriculture wrote re- ferring \IcJ' the scheme for the establish- ment of war agricultural committees, saying that Lord Solborne was in a. posi- tion to make grariis to any county that submitted an approved estimate, and asking the Council to undertake the allo- cation of the grants in Wales on behalf of the Board, the maximum not to exceed £ 50. Aft-et- discussion it was agreed to authorise payments m*; exceeding R50 to any county. Mr E. R. Davie-s proposed a resolution conveying to Lord Solborne the Council's appreciation of the arrangement whereby the Council may actively interest itself in the development of Welsh agricultuie, but recording its conviction that the claims of agriculture in Wales could not be properly considered and safeguarded until Wales was directly and adequately represented on all conferences, com- missions, and committees which might be constituted to deal with agriculture and its allied industries ill England and Wales. Jurtther. that the. Council re- gretted to hnd that little attention was given to -the claims and needs of Wales in the rec ent investigations into the question of farm training for women conducted by the Agricultural Educational Conference, and was of opinion that Wales should have additional renresentation on the conference. He remarked on the ab- of any representation from Wales on the Fertilisers Committee, and said that out of the fourteen members on the Timber Trade Committee there was not one who might bo. regarded as a. Welsh representative. Tiny knew that the Gov- ernment through that Committee pro- nosed purchasing extensive timber pro- perties in "W ales, and he did not see whv the claims of ales should be ignored to representation on the Committee. It seemed to him to be part of the settled policy of the Ccii-i-riiiiierit, for some time in regard tc the constitution of all com- mittees to ignore claims of Wales. Since the war started over seventy com- mittees had been sWt up de-iling with ono phase or another of public work, and on fewer than ten per cent, of those- commit- tees was a Welsh renresentative. He thought, the Council should urge as far as agriculture was concerned that Wfiles should get direct representation. About the farm 'training for women conference there was not. a single woman witness from ales called:, and in that matter again the claims of Wales were entirely ignored. Mr W. Edwards seconded the preposi- tion and said that not only were Welsh national feelings and aspi-auons ignored, but ik was equally true in regard to the army. In siite of all representations, there had been absolutely no attempt to put boys from Wales into Welsh regi- ments. If Wales were to take her part in the development of the British Empiiro they must be allowed to do so in their own way. After further discussion the proposition was carried. Mr Trevor Lloyd Jones. Denbigh, asked wlieher the promise that the President of the Board gave at the previous meeting of the Council in Shrewsbury, to intervene on behalf of tenailrs of fiirms whose rents had Iveen raised, had been fulfilled, and if so whether the Chairman was in a. position to say what had been done? The Chairman said he did not know whether Lord Selbornci had done anything. It was to be a private inquiry, and not to be done through that. Council. He would endeavour to get the information. Reports were read from all the war committees in the Principality. In most of thorn consider;! ble shortage of labour was reported, particularly in Carmarthen- shire, where the deficiency ranged from ten to thirty-five per cent. Fli'nt re- ported groat difficulty in securing labour on the land owing to the high wages paid in munition works. Agricultural labourers who formerly had 30s. a week OIl tho land were now paid £ 3 in munition works, and farmers complained bitterly of high wages paid by the Government. Arising on the recommendations made in the reports, it was agretld, on the pro- positi on of Mr E. R. Davies, seconded by Professor White, Bangor, to ask the Boa:rd of A<.f"ieultur<- (to dontinue the grants for the training of women in farm work. Principal Roberts, Aberystwyth, depre- cated the -suggestion made in some of tho reports, more particularly from Carmar- thenshire and Glamorganshire, to change the ago exemption from fourteen to twelve to enable children to work on the land. He recognised the growing acute- ness of the shortage of labour, but it seemed to him of great importance that any change made in lowering the leaving age of children should be narrowly ex- amined in the interests of the children. Owing to the shortage of teachers there would he difficulties in giving continuation instruction in the evening schools, aN had been suggested. Mr E. R. Davies remarked that it would be well for authorities throughout Wales to understand that the Board of Educa- tion had refused so far to make any change in the law. Mr Trevor Lloyd Jones thought that every possible source of labour should ba drawn on before the education of boys Has interfered with. Mr W. Edwards strongly opposed the idea, and said that to him the idea of getting men on the farm was simple— they must pay them adequately. Mr David Pryce, Montgomery, said it would be unfortunate if that. Council countenanced anything which would inter- fere with the education of the boys of the countryside. Mr Joue.s Davies proposed that tho Council and the county education commit- tees should be asked to reduce the ex- emption nge of children during the period of the war, providing such children were employed in agriculture. The proposition was defeated, only two voting for it, The following wore constituted a sub- ceiinm tte<> to deal with the various resolu- tions on the labour question and supply of fertilisers that had come nn from the various counties- ossrs E. R. Davies, W. Edwards, and Trevor Jones, for North Wales; Jones Davies (Carmarthen), Ed- ward Akers (Glamorgan'). Thomas Thomas (Carmarthen), and E. B. Bowen (Pem- broke) for South Wales.

Cardiganshire Main Roads
Cardiganshire Main Roads. SOUTHERN DIVISION. The quarterly meeting of the Main j Roads Committee for the southern division of Cardiganshire County Council was hell j last week at Llandyssul, Mr. Thomas Evans. Llwyndyrus, presided. It was agreed to postpone the proposed road im- provements near the National School, Llandyssul, and near tStradnuore. The Committee agreed to adopt similar steps as the Northern Committee with regard to the supply and haulage of road mater- ials, namely, to submit samples of stones from local quarries to Dr. O. T. Jones, professor of geology at Aberystwyth Col- lege, with the view of obtaining his ad- vice as to their quality and as to the location of suitable stone for road material at points near the main roads; to instruct the Surveyor to prepare a proper classi- fication of the roads with a view to a new- arrangement being arrived at with farmers for hauling; and to ascertain what water supplies were near quarries with the view of considering the Question of crushing stones at the quarries rather than on the roadside. Mr W. J. Wil- liams, solicitor, Cardigan, wrote claiming, compensation on behalf of Mr.- Evans, Red Lion Inn, for damage caused to his motor car by scrap iron metal on the road at Owmtirllwyd. The claim was re- ferred to a committee. A committee was also appointed to report on the damage done to the groyne at Aberporth. The Surveyor was instructed to put metal on the road from Cardigan to Brynhoffnant. In his report, the Surveyor stated that tne nine roadmen spared to the Road Board had returned.
BARON RHONDDA Of LLANWERN
BARON RHONDDA Of LLANWERN. Mr. D. A. Thomas purposes on his eleva- tion to the peerage to take the title of Baron Rhondda of Llanwern. in the county of Monmouthshire. The greater portions of his colliery interests are situated in the district from which lie has taken his title, as it is the centre of three of the great collieries which constitute the Cambrian Combine. The Rhondda is also an aggressive and a progressive district, and it is suggested by some that in this characteristic of the Hhondda itself there is reflected some of the most conspicuous qualities of Mr. D. A. Thomas himself.
