Selling Beer Without a License. David Jones, Pwllyrafel Llandysiliogogo, carpenter, was summoned for this offence on the 24th Oct P.C. Phillips (10) said that he saw a man drinking beer in defendant's house. He himself went and called for a pint, which was served him, but for which pay was not accepted. Defendant admitted having taken money from the other person. He pleaded poverty. Superintendent R. Lloyd said the sale of beer without licences was very prevalent in that part of the country. The Bench said they were determined to stop the practice, and fined the defendant £10, and costs.
