A DOCTOR'S HOLIDAYS. + AN UNPAID HOTEL BILL. On Wednesday, at the Middlewich Police Court, Wm. Brown, alias Dr. Hulme, a distinguished- looking person, attired in a blue serge coat and vest, corduroy breeches, and brown leggings and boots, and wearing a brown check cap, was charged on remand with obtaining food and lodgings at the London and North- Western Hotel, Winsford, by false pretences. Miss Parkin said she was in charge of the hotel on Tuesday week, when the prisoner, who was fashionably dressed, es'xed to be supplied with tea. After the meal, he volunteered the in- formation that he was a doctor on his holidays, and that he had a house at Llandudno. He spent three nights at the hotel, and when his bill was tendered by the landlady he gave her 5s. 6d. as a deposit, and said he was expecting a cheque in the morning. She allowed him to stay another night, and on the Friday he went out, and she did not see him again until Police- Sergeat Thomas arrested him on Sunday after- noon at North wicb.-Prisoner, who had been in custody since Sunday, was now represented by Mr. Frank Lloyd, solicitor, Chester, who urged that as his client had paid a deposit a charge of false pretences could not be preferred. If Hulme refused to pay the balance, the proprietor of the hotel must seek a remedy in the County Court. —The Bench decided that, as a matter of law, there bad been no false pretences, and dis- charged the prisoner.
