The Heathcote Tragedy.
HEATHCOTE, Friday.— Yesterday afternoon Mr. Russell, coroner for the Wollongong district, visited the scene of the shooting fatality. As no doctor had attended, he issued his summons for one, and deferred the inquest till to-day. Mr. Perram, father of the youth who was shot, is a road contractor, and lives in a cottage on the east side of the Heathcote Railway Station. The Dunn family live close by. In Perram's cottage the deceased lay on a bed just as he was found, and the coroner directed that he should remain so until the doctor arrived. There is a big hole in the chest as if the cartridge had entered it bodily, showing that the deceased could not have been far away from the muzzle of the gun, and that the lads were facing one another. There are many wild rumors about, but of course the only one who really knows how it happened is the unfortunate lad Dunn, whose nerves are not yet sufficiently settled to give a rational explanation. The coroner arrived this forenoon to open an inquest.

SUTHERLAND, Wednesday.
A fatal shooting accident occurred at Heathcote this afternoon, a young man named Charles Perram being the victim. From particulars to hand it appears that Perram and another young man named Dunn went out for an afternoon's wallaby hunting, leaving home about 3 o'clock. They had not proceeded far when it was agreed that Perram should act wallaby, and Dunn pointing his gun the weapon immediately discharged, shooting Perram in the left breast. Very shortly afterwards he expired.
