REMARKABLE SHOOTING CASE.

AN ADELAIDE HOTEL SENSA TION.

In the Sturt Arcade Hotel, Grenfell street, Adelaide, three rapidly-fired revol ver shots were heard, and a bullet passed through the ceiling of the bar. In one of the bedrooms a young man named

Harold Bowman, aged about 23 years, was found lying with blood flowing from a wound in his right side. A revolver lay alongside with three chambers discharged. The wounded man, who is a son of Mr A. P. Bowman, the well-known pastoralist, of Meningie, was staying with his mother at the South Australian Hotel. He called at the Sturt Arcade Hotel and asked to be hown into a bedroom in which to wash himself, and also to be supplied with writing materials. This was done and the shots followed in a few minutes. Only one bullet entered the body, penetrating the side; the other struck the floor. Two letters, hurriedly written, addressed to relatives and marked ' Immediate,' were found in the room. Bowman was conveyed to a private hos pital. The bullet is still in his body, but his medical attendant states that there is no immediate danger.
