Strange Revolver Accident. Benalla, Tuesday.--A young man named Peter William Griffiths, who resided with his father, Mr. Edward Griffiths, just outside the town, met his death this morning through an accident with a revolver. John, Arthur, and Peter Griffiths, with another man named Mason, went out this morning carting hay in a paddock near the house. After going a short distance Peter left them for the purpose of shooting a dog which he was leading. He went off to a waterhole, and that was the last seen of him alive, as the others went on to their work. On returning, Arthur Grifiiths noticed the dog alive, and on looking round saw his brother lying on his back dead alongside the fence, with a bullet wound in the centre of the forehead. The revolver was lying on his left side, between him and the fence, with the muzzle pointed towards his head. The revolver was only loaded in one chamber, and it is possible that, having got through the fence, he was regulating it in order to shoot the dog, and it went off. The matter has been reported to the coroner, and an inquiry will be held.
