SHOT DEAD BY SNIPERS. A thrilling episode took place at Moran's Hotel on Sunday afternoon, when a British air mechanic named Rogers was killed and two privates, Sutherland and Baker, of the Cameronian Regiment, were wounded. Rogers was shot dead on a lorry by a party of irregulars ensconced in Moran's Hotel, who opened fire  on the military machine as it was moving along the street. Rogers turned to his companion, Air Mechanic Berry, and saying, " Take the wheel, old man," dropped dead. The British troops returned the rebel fire and made an attempt to get away, but the engine of Rogers' machine had been put out of action. The Cameronians hurriedly dismounted and opened fire on the irregulars. Three men who were leaning out of Moran's Hotel with rifles at their shoulders were shot dead, and toppled out of the window on to the street.' They are described in the list of casualties issued by the irregulars as having been " killed in action." Two of the Cameronians were wounded
