Killed by Lightning

During the electric storm of Saturday, Earle Daly, aged nineteen years, a teamster in the employ of W. H. Surles, was instantly killed by coming into contact with a live electric wire. It is not certainly known whether the wire, which was a telephone wire, had become supercharged by being crossed by a trolley street care wire or whether at the moment of contact with the body of Daly the lightning had struck the telephone wire somewhere in the city and conducted the electric fluid to the person of the victim.
