L SUDDEN DEATH IN A CHESTER HOTEL. 0 An inquest was held on Tuesday evening at the Bull and Stirrup Hotel by Mr. F. Turner, deputy coroner, on the body of Robert Calcutt, who died suddenly at the Washington Hotel, City-road, Chester, on the previous Sunday morning.—Wm. Mollan, a relative of deceased, deposed to having come from Belfast on account of deceased's death. Deceased was 40 years of age, and had been acting as confidential clerk to a firm of wholesale drapers in Belfast. Wit- ness last saw him alive about three weeks ago. Deceased had never complained to him of ill- ness, and always seemed in perfect health.— Mary Elizabeth Newall, proprietress of the Washington Hotel, stated that deceased arrived at the hotel about half-past eleven on Saturday night, and asked for a bed. He was shewn to his room, and he requested to be called the next morning at eight o'clock. On Sunday morning the boots told witness that deceased had made no answer to his calling. The room was then entered, and the gentleman was lying in bed. They noticed he was dead.—Thos. Pringle, boots at the hotel, said that deceased, when going to bed on Saturday night, told him he had had a long journey from Harrogate, and felt very tired, and required a good night's rest.—Dr. Harrison deposed to making a post-mortem examination of the body, and finding that death was due to heart disease. It was a very bad case of heart disease, of long standing, and witness could not understand deceased not com- plaining strongly.—Police Constable Dougherty deposed to being called to the hotel on Sunday morning. Having made a search of deceased's property, he found nothing of special note.— A verdict was given in accordance with the medical evidence.
