CHESTER PUBLICAN'S CRUELTY. 4 AN UNHAPPY MARRIAGE. At the City Police Court yesterday (Tuesday), before Mr. Charles Brown and Dr. Stolterfoth, Anna Mere sought an order of separation against her husband, Edward William Mere, who occupies the Prince Albert Inn, Chester, on account of his persistent cruelty to her.- Mr. W. H. Churton, who appeared for plaintiff, said the case was a sad one. Defendant had been a quartermaster-sergeant in the Army Service Corps, and by the marriage there were four children. At first the com- plainant lived with her husband at Malta, but after some years she was obliged to leave him on account of his cruelty to her. She came to England, and lived with her father at Silverstone. The same year defendant returned to England, and after living at many places aloiae, was pensioned off, and entered the railway service at Chester for a wage of 24s. a week. He was discharged from the railway service in April last, and then took the Prince Albert Inn, and joined his wife again. The illtreatment continued, however, and rarely a week passed without the wife experiencing same violence at defendant's hands. He had turned her out of the house several times. Complainant, in bearing out this statement, said her husband was now drawing a pension from the army of 12s. a week. The business of the public-house was his. She left him a few days ago on account of his continued violence towards her.—Defendant said he admitted striking his wife on one or two occasions, but denied persistent cruelty. He received great provocation for what he did, and had been treated by her more as a menial than a husband. —The Bench granted a separation, and made an order of maintenance against defendant of 15s. a week, allowing the wife the custody of the children.
