Attempt On Life of Police Chief

LONDON — An attempt to murder Sir Edward Henry, Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, was made outside his residence, in Campden House Court, last night [Nov. 27].

Sir Edward was fired at three times by a man named Alfred George Bowes, who was arrested. Only one of the three shots fired hit Sir Edward. He was struck in the left groin, but the bullet did not penetrate deeply. The bullet passed straight through the flesh, and was afterwards found in the underclothing. There is no danger except from possible septic poisoning.

Sir Edward had alighted from his automobile and was entering the house, when the man, who had been waiting on the other side of the road, rushed up and said: “I want to speak to you.” The Commissioner waved him on one side, and at that moment Bowes produced his revolver and fired three shots.
