Cheboygan, Michigan, March 27 - Saturday night Sheriff Hayes went to the low dive of Charles Smith to quell a disturbance and remonstrated with Smith, who became enraged and, drawing a revolver, commenced firing. He seriously wounded Marshal Bochard who had entered the house soon after Hayes, and his second shot passed through the hat of Constable Ewing. A fierce fight then took place between Hayes and Smith, Hayes shooting Smith in the throat and side. The last wound inflicted injuries from which Smith died.
