OCCASIONAL LICENSES. OPPOSED BY THE MAYOR OF LAMPETER. At the Town-hall, Lampeter, on Friday (before Alderman Evan Davies, mayor Mr A R Jones, and Mr B J Evans) Mrs Davies, landlady of the Royal Oak, applied for an occasional licence till six a.m. the following day on the occasion of the yeomanry ball at the Victoria Memorial-hall. The Mayor strenuously opposed the application, on the ground that the time was unnecessarily long. He had had experience of balls, but he had never known an occasional licence granted for such a length of time. He was afraid that if the application were acceded to it would injure the prospects of the hall in regard to subscriptions, and the granting of a licence for the hall to be turned into a public house would not meet with the approval of the subscribers. The licence was granted by the consent of the other two magistrates.
