It is believed at diee lieadoiinr-
lers Hint Archibald was killed in n
desperate struggle with burglars who
hud apparently rifled the offices of
Hiellnsliugs Shingle.- Manufacturing
company about midnight last night.
Around the spot where tho body of
the policeman was discovered this
morning, there were signs of n fight,
and everything indicated that some
time during the night, between 12:40
o'clock, when Archibald went to
answer n call to Powell street mid the
nest hour or two, ho met n thug' or
thugs iu n battle with whom he re
ceived two bullets in the heart, iu
what was probably a running gun fight
on the Powell street lot.
That some jhtsoii or fierson went
through tho offices of the Hastings
Shingle Manufacturing company was
evident this morning. It is not kuown
ns yet if anything was taken from
the uremises. The police nt head
quarters believe Archibald came
across tho robbers somewhere on
Powell street and tried to arrest
them. , ..
