(i) Referring to my message of 9. 25 p.m. 12/9/14 Major Beardsmore reports that he has now investigated the death of the native constable Tooloo who was shot by Private Stein at 7.30 p.m. last evening 12/9/14.  Tooloo was armed and on being challenged ran away and was fired on.  This statement is confirmed by another native constable name Agooroo and the remainder of the guard.  Major Beardsmore states that he has assured natives of friendly intentions and that no harm will be done them provided they stop when challenged.

Captain Maguire A.A. M.C. has certified that the man was killed
