Slipped and Fell

Mexican Shoots Man

Raleigh.—Michael Bowles, aged 30, was shot, probably fatally, by Benjamin Guyer. The two men were members of a party that had taken an auto ride to Flasher, but on their return here an altercation arose, during which the shooting occurred. Guyer is a Mexican, who came here about two months ago from the Arizona border. Deputy Sheriff Wicks of Flasher came here to arrest the assailant.

Cowboy Held For Shooting

Flasher.—Ben Guyer, the Mexican cowboy who shot Michael Bowles, has been bound over to the district court for assault with a deadly weapon. The amount of bail was fixed at $1,000, which he furnished, and he returned to Flasher. Bowles was wanted by officials of Morton County on a blind-pigging charge, and despite his wound, he skipped out in the direction of Shields. He was located Friday by Deputy Sheriff John Wicks, who took him to Mandan for a preliminary hearing.
