The sovero electrical storm which visited
this, city yesterday brought sorrow to tho
hearts and devolution lo tho homo of Jlr,
nnd Mrs. Henry Butterwlck, farmers liv
ing In Wyandotte county, live miles west
of KiinsaK City, Kaa.
One Ktroke of lightning did tho work. It
rendered lifeless Joseph Thomas lliittcr
wck, aged ID yeurs, und Oeorgo Kilvrunl
Iluttcrwlck, nged 15 years, two lirlght
young farmer hoys. The hody of tho older
hoy wus badly hurued and his clothing
was torn to threads.
While ut work In the harvest field, gath
ering sheaves of wheat ut I o'clock yes
terday afternoon, a sudden bolt of light
ning descended und killed tho boys In
jitantly. It struck Joseph, the older, but
the tremenduous shock whs too much
for fieorge und he, too, foil lo tho earth,
dead, Tho boys were within live feet of
each other when etrlekcn. There wcia
other men In the Held at tho time and
they felt the shock of tho lightning. It
was not until fifteen minutes after the
stroke that tho relatives of llie boys dis
covered their dead bodies.
Mr, Henry llutterwick had u large field
of line wheat within u short distance of
the house and during the past three duys
lie has been cutting it. He expected to
finish the work last evening. .Uter din
ner bis son Peter mounted tho self-binder.
His other sons began to follow tho reaper
und shock tho wheat sheaves. Tho old
gentleman wus kept busy raking up tho
stray wheat uround stumps and In the
corners. About the middle of tha after
noon the weather became very threaten
ing and the harvesters worn working hnrd.
'I hey wanted to finish reaping before the
storm. They were getting along nicely
when a sudden Hash of lightning came
und seemed to cover the whole Held. Mr.
llutterwick nnd his son Peter were at one
end of the field with the reaper. They
were badly stunned and the lion.es at
tached to the machine were knocked to
their knees. The animals soon recovered
and starteil to run away. It was nil the
men could do to control them. As soon
as the horses were quieted the old gen
tleman went to the house to sec if his
two younger sons had come In after the
stroke, lie did not find them there and
started to tho field, lie walked to the
other end of tho field fiom where ho and
his older son were nnd there he dis
covered their dead bodies lying on the
ground within a short distance of a wheat
shock, lly their side were several sheaves
of grain which they were In tho act of
carrying when killed. The body of Joseph
Thomas llutterwick was entirely naked.
Ills bl straw hat was torn In a thousand
pieces; his blue cheeked shirt was miss
ing and his pantaloons were torn com
pletely from tho body and were found In

threads u thort distance uway, Ho wore
heavy calfskin shoes and even these wero
torn from his feet. The only thing that
could b found of them were the heavy
soles nnd they wero twenty feet from the
body. The threads of tho pants were
badly burned. I'pon Investigation it was
discovered that his hair wus all burned
olf on the crown of the head und there
was an abrasion Just ubovu the base of
tho skull In the center of the heud. His
left ankle was also broken. Tho body of
Ueorgu IMwarii, which lay live feet away,
did not have a single scratch on It. It
laid face up und looked Just us though hu
had laid down und gone to sleep, His
clothing wus Intact. The bodies wero
picked up by tender hands und removed
to the country residence, a quarter of a
mile uway. Or, Todd, of the West side,
was summoned and mado an examination
of the bodies. He came to the conclusion
that the bolt passed through the older
boy's body and that tho younger boy wus
killed by the heavy shock. Undertaker
Kaymoud. of Kansas City, Kas., was
called und prepared tho bodies for burial.
The funeral will take pluco to-morrow

In that vicinity. A hnrso nttnehed to n

was knocked down by thr force of the
lightning. As soon as It recovered from

and run down the street. The buggy was
completely demolished, J. It. Williams,

wire clothesline stretched from the. tree
which was struck to an adjoining tree.nnd
when the lightning reached the wire It ran
ofT on the clothesline to the second tree,
where It ran Into tho ground, A cow be

Yesterday afternoon tho committee ap

lions held a meeting with the result that
a report was presented to the council stat
ing that a. majority of the property owners
ou South Main street and Alton avenue
had signed the petition asking for the
grunting ot a franchise,
When the council was called to order last
night Mayor Orlnter delivered a short
verbal message. He said that a double
track on the street would not pay any
company, and us far as the city was con
cerned would be very much In. the way.
It would bo years before a double track
would be needed. He urged that, In case u.
franchise was grunted to D. U, Holmes
and others, tho company should be required
to pave between its rails with some sub
stantial and enduring material.
The petition of the property owners und
the report ot the committee was then filed.
T. C. Caldwell, a property owner on North
Liberty street, then tiled a petition for a
franchise on North Liberty and College
streets. It was signed by forty property
owners and purported to be u majority of
the resident property owners on the street.
At this juncture in the proceedings Dr.

against counting names signed to the
