CITY POLICE COURT. ♦ MONDAY.—Before the Mayor (Mr. B. C. Roberts), Messrs. H. T. Brown, G. A. Dickson, and J. J. Cunnah. I AN INHUMAN WOMAN.—Theresa Catherall, a tramp, was charged in custody with being drunk and disorderly, and exposing her child in a manner likely to cause unnecessary suffering, on Saturday night in City-road.—P.C. Dutton stated that prisoner was drunk and reeled about the street, dragging a child along, about two years old, who was drenched to the skin with the rain, which was falling heavily at the time. The woman frequently dropped the child on the road, and she used filthy language.—P.C. Tarran corroborated.—Prisoner said she was on the way to Holywell from Stockport, her native ^er husband was in court with her children. The Bench, who considered the case extremely sad, sent her to prison for a month for her cruelty to the child, and withdrew the other charge. CHARGE OF BURGLARY.—William Lewis, giving his address as Cross-street, Carlisle, was charged in custody with breaking and entering premises with intent to commit a felony early that morning.—The Chief Constable said the premises opened were Lightfoot's, pawnbroker, Brook-street. A policeman in the vicinity heard a noise from the place about half-past four that morning, and taking the precaution to summon other constables to surround the build- ing, prisoner was ultimately discovered in the yard, having broken open the door with a jemmy. He had on his person the complete outfit of a burglar. A remand was required.—P.C. Wakelyn confirmed this statement.—Prisoner was remanded for eight days. A PUBLICAN AND HIS GUESTS CURIOUS CASE.—William Povey, landlord of the Hare and Hounds public-house, Handbridge, was summoned for keeping his house open after 11 o'clock at night for the sale of intoxicating drink, on the 21st September. Defendant pleaded not guilty, and was represented by Mr. W. H. Churton. Inspector Culliford said he passed defendant's house about 20 minutes to one in the morning. The place was lit up, the door was open, and three men were inside, one of whom was drink- ing from a pewter pot. The landlord, when asked for an explanation, said a fireman bad asked to be supplied with drink. The fireman was standing outside, working a plug. There was a fire that night in the neighbourhood.— Cross-examined: The landlord did not say he had simply treated the fireman to some beer. —Mr. Churton, for the defence, said his client closed his house at 11 o'clock, and went to see the fire, which had broken out a few hundred yards away. Returning about half-past twelve, he saw his wife, whom he had left in bed, stand- ing at the door talking to a fireman, who was working a plug. She had also turned on the light in the room. The landlord, noticing the fireman fatigued, invited him to have some beer free of charge, and the man had the beer. He (Mr. Churton) contended that a landlord had a right at any time of the night to entertain bond, fide guests. His client's action was most reason- able and charitable.—Defendant went into the box, and in his evidence said he had occupied the house for more than two years without any complaint having been made.—Mr. H. T. Brown, who alone tried the case, said the police were quite justified in bringing the case, but he was satisfied that defendant was not at fault in treating a fireman or anybody to drink. The summons would therefore be dismissed.
