FROM THE SAN CARtOS.
A Soldier and Horse Killed by
lightning on the San Carlos
Three Other Soldiers Severely
San Carlos, A. T., July 18, 1872
You have, I beliovo, already men-,
tioned tho fact that Troop M, Eifth
Cavalry, (Captain E. H. Leib and
First Lieutenant Jacob Almy), had
been ordered from Camp Arivipai (30
miles southeast 'from Grant) to the
site selected for a proposed new per
manent post on tho east bank of the
San Carlos river, about three miles
above tho Gila. Tho weather at this
new camp where said company has
been tho past two weeks, has been
most terribly hot and oppressive,
Wind and thunder storms havo como
up almost regularly in the afternoon
On Sa'turday July 13, between 3 and
3 o'clock p. M. (the mercury showing
110 degrees in the shade), there was a
severe thunder storm at tho San Car
los camp. It was characterized by
awfully loud and crashing peals o
thunder, accompanied by very sharp,
brilliant and vivid flashes of light
ning. Such slogans of heaven's ar
tillery were probably never heard be
fore in Arizona. It was truly a great
Jjeyden battery discharged.
Corporal Charles E. Elward, of M
Troop, with privates Frank Butcher,
John Gillis and Samuel Latimer were
at tho time the storm arose-out on duty,
looking after the herd of horses, on a
fiat somo 400 yards from the main
camp. Suddenly an alarm was sig
naled as if an accident had happened,
and Lieutenant Almy and A. A. Sur
geon Mullan hastened to the spot,
where these four men woro, as rapidly
as they could ; but, alas ! too late to
effect any good, for that was impossi
ble, for Corporal Elward, who had
been sitting on his horse, was knocked
therefrom to tho earth by the light
ning and killed outright. His horse
was" also dead. Tho man's hair of
head and whiskers wero singed and
scorched as it by fire. There was no
fracture of bones, but tho course of
tho terrible current of electricity, so
long confined within tho arid atmos
phere, was distinctly traceablo along
tho body, from tho head downward.
Thero woro several contusions also
about tho body ? Ed. and on tho
extremities. Elward had a nistol on
his waist at the timo. Neither barrel
was discharged by the concussion.
Privates llutcher, Gillis and Lati
mer wero within from six to ten feet
of the corporal. They wero all moro
or less stunned by the lightning lame
in tho legs, could scarcely walk.
They must for tho time being havo
been rendered insensible by the blow.
Butcher states that, a few minutes be
foro tho sad occurrence, Corporal El
ward had remarked to them as they
wero seated upon the ground convers
ing, as follows: " Get up, you men,
and put the bridles upon your horses
and keep them together, as this storm
may causa them to stampede." "These
were tho last words they heard him
Lieutenant. Almy, tho next morn
ing had tho body properly interrod
with military honors, tho officers and
his late companions in arms Tjavinrr
tho last solemn rites of burial. The
grave, to bear tho remains, had been
dug just whero tho poor man and his
horse fell, and tho echo of the carbines
discharged by his sorrowing comrades
over his tomb broke tho almost appal
ling stillness of tho San Carlos,
which no sound of whito man's mus
ketry at least had, perhaps, thereto
fore disturbed. Aruonjr that little
band of sturdy soldiery an unmoist-
ened eye was not to bo found all
dropped the tear of affection over his
grave for Corporal Elward was very
greatly respected and beloved by all
Tho deceased has, it is said, friends
residing somewhere in Wisconsin. In
citizen life ho had been a clerk.
His term of enlistment, five years,
would have soon expired September
