CITY POLICE COURT. ♦ WEDNESDAY.—Before the Mayor, and Messrs. W. Brown, Roger Jackson and Dr. Stolterfoth. LICENSING.—On the application of Mr. E. S. Giles, temporary authority to sell at the Prince Alfred Inn, Egerton-street, was granted to Henry Brown, butcher, Ludlow. ALLEGED ATTEMPTED BURGLARY. Albert Walton, a youth of no fixed residence, but whose parents reside in Weaver-street, Chester, was charged with breaking into the offices of Mr. Hibbert, timber merchant, Victoria Place. According to the evidence of the prosecutor, it appeared that the offices were locked up on Tuesday evening, but on going to business the following morning he found the window broken and wide open, while several drawers had been forced, and the safe tampered with. The articles missing were a small key and a pocket knife (produced). Prisoner had been in his employment about two years ago.—Detective- Inspector Gallagher deposed to arresting prisoner that morning and on searching him, finding the missing articles.—The Chief Con- stable asked for a remand for a week, when there would be several charges made against Walton.—The remand was granted. THURSDAY. Before the Mayor, and Messrs. W. Brown and R. Jackson. A PUBLICAN'S TROUBLES. — Thomas Boden, grinder, hailing from a common lodging-house in the city, was charged in custody with drunkenness, and damaging a window and door to the extent of 8s. in the Wellington Inn, Handbrdge.—John Jones, landlord, a young man who has only occupied the house a few days, said prisoner called at his house the previous day and asked for drink. The man was not sober, and prosecutor refused him. Prisoner then created a disturb- ance, molesting other customers, and prose- cutor, with difficulty, ejected bim from the house, and barred the door. The man put his foot through the window, completely smashing it, and tried to burst the door open. A police- man was sent for. Prisoner had since made good the damage.—P.C. Douglas said he was summoned to the house, and saw prisoner lying on the ground outside, with four men holding him. He had assaulted a lad, and knocked the door of another house down.—Prisoner, who has been a frequent offender, was fined 10s. and costs, or 14 days' hard labour on the charge of drunkenness, and the other case was dismissed, as he had repaired the damage. SAT UP.DAY.- Before Dr. Stolterfothland Messrs. H. R. Bowers and R. Jackson. RAILWAY TRAVELLING WITHOUT A TICKET.— Joseph Newton,ayouth, was charged with travel- ling from Crewe to Chester on the London and North-Western Railway without having a ticket. A ticket collector, in giving evidence, said that he collected the tickets of the half- past six train from London on Friday evening. Prisoner had no ticket, and gave witness an address in Crewe.—Railway-Detective Weaver said his attention was called to prisoner, who, on being questioned, gave no fewer than five different names and addresses in Crewe, stating he was a joiner and again that he was a brick- layer. Prisoner also stated he had lived in Francis-street, and could get his fare there. They walked up and down Francis-street once or twice, however, and at last Newton admitted he had never lived there.—Prisoner, who pleaded guilty, was fined 10s. and costs, or 14 days. WHAT'S IN A WELSH NAME ?-Mr. W. H. Churton applied on behalf of Ernest Kinsey, for permission to sell intoxicating liquor at the Farmers' Arms, George- street, until the licensing sessions. In the course of the application, a new licensing diffi- culty arose. The applicant hailed from a Welsh village with a distinctly Welsh name, which Mr. Churton said he could not even attempt to pronounce.—The Chief Constable: Oh, but the name is essential. (Laughter.)— Mr. Churton proceeded amid much laughter to spell the name, but he broke down. Finally it was explained that the place was somewhere near Rhuddlan. The applicant pronounced it, no doubt quite correctly, but as our reporter is not equal to the intricacies of llawfer, we cannot give it.—The licence was granted. MONDAY.—Before Dr. Stolterfoth, Messrs. T. Smith, and J. G. Frost. DRUNK AND DISORDERLY.—Timothy Donovan, Parkgate-road, was fined 5s. and costs, or seven days, for being drunk and disorderly in Cheyuey-road on Sunday. A CRUEL HUSBAND.—Mary McLeary, sum- moned her husband, James McLeary, a labourer, for persistent cruelty.—Mr. W. H. Churton, for complainant, said the parties lived in Fosbrook- street, and had only been married a few months. Defendant commenced abusing his wife three months ago, and had continued it regularly to the present.—Witnesses gave evidence in sup- port of the case, and defendant, who denied the cruelty, was ordered to pay 6s. a week towards the maintenance of his wife, who was granted a separation order.—Defendant was also sum- moned for assaulting a man named Michael Gibbons, and pleaded guilty to the offence under provocation. He was fined 10s. and costs or seven days' hard labour.
