English Court to Try Two Americans J. H. and C. H. Phipps Do Reckless Shooting in Highlands of Scotland

London, Jul 26. The shooting case involving J. H. and C. H. PHIPPS, sons of Henry PHIPPS of Pittsburg, Pa., was mentioned in the House of Commons this afternoon.

J. Galloway WEIR, representing Ross and Cromarty counties of Scotland, wanted the Lord Advocate for Scotland to take steps to prevent the defendants from fleeing from justice. The Lord Advocate, however, said he had every reason to believe that the PHIPPS would be ready to meet any charges brought against them. One of the young men, he understood, is now in Paris.

The two sons of Mr. PHIPPS were recently charged at Inverness with reckless discharge of firearms on Beaufort and Tate in the Highlands of Scotland, leaved by Mr. PHIPPS from Lord LOVAT, by which the young men wounded three persons.

On July 22, they were committed for trial and released on $2,500 bail each. Mr. Galloway WEIR called the attention of the House of Commons to the case on July 23, when he asked the Lord Advocate whether the defendants were still in the United Kingdom.
