The Ivy Bush.�Mr. Prosser, Carmarthen made an application for the renewal of the license of Ivy Bush.The Chief Constable opposed on the grounds that it was not required, and that the house was structurally unfit.-Colonel Davies-Evans did not sit during the hearing of the latter cases, and the remainder of the Sessions was presided over by Mr. Inglis Jones. Sergt. Thorn said the next public-house adjoined it. The were nine within 100 yards. It did a pretty good trade and stabled horses. The passage was similar to that of the Crown. The windows were small and the rooms were not well lighted. They were making repairs ,and when carried out would give better light. People had to wait on the street whilst the horses went through the passage. Cross- examined, witness said there was stabling for 20 or 30 horses. It could not be an ideal house until the passage had been altered. Mr. Prosser contended that there was not a tittle of evidence to justify the bench in refusing a renewal, and mentioned that the licence had been in the hands of the same family for 65 years. Renewed.
