Caused by Electric Storm AT THE BATHIHG BEACH RICHAHD b. smith receives a FATAIi SHOCK. Twelve Others Injured ? Fluid Passes From Flag Pole to Interior of Boat House. Death and destruction followed In the wake of yesterday's storm, shortly after noon. At times It appeared that even the houses were shaken, and the thousands of pel sons who were on the streets, returning from the morning services in the churches, were forced to seek shelter in any con venient place. Some went under awnings and were drenched, while many of those who sought shelter in street cars were no better off. Lightning struck a number ot places and did considerable damage. The most serious damage done was at the bathing beach, where one life was sacri ficed and a dozen persons were injured. The man who was killed was Richard R Smith, a one-legged man, who was employed as a machinist in the navy yard. His home was at 613 South Carolina avenue. The list ot Injured includes Policeman Ranagan, who <iUty at t,ie bat'i'ng beach; Jacob old FYanir A?T"Ln,an. twenty-one years , "J. "f.

Crowd of Bathers. Because of the intense heat yesterday morning a big crowd of men and boys made an early start for the bathing beach and scores of them were in the water. Many of them started toward the shore at the first sign of the approach of the storm, while others remained until the rench?dRUthe hMo.re.tha" a s?'re of bathers reached the boat house and sought shel ter in the building rather than risk going to nnJ r-T 8 I""?' ThOSe fared Worst who l?ok,T ln the boat house, where Moses A. Hekimlan, an Armenian, conducts a refreshment stan.i. Smith, who was an ex pert swimmer despite the loss of his lee was assisted from the shallow water to the boat house on the back of a friend. His attention was attracted to one of the bovs who was hastening to get out of the path of the lightning and his remark was that rr.r.nr Jlse l.ryinK to do,j*e "s^ning. He told tiie boy it would do no good to run, as one place was no safer than an other. About this time there were several ? boats being rowed in the direction of the j shore, and two boats, in which there were ? no occupants, were overturned. I Those who had reached the boat house ! standing near the open door watching , what was going on outside. While thev I ?y?re thus employed the crash came. The tall flagpole on the boat house was struck by lightning, and several of those who had sought shelter In Tie building sud ?vni!fn i t0 MT ,loor' Sml,h was instant ly killed, and for a short time it was be lieved that others were dead. It was sev T, . 'nl"u,es before those who were but slightly stunned recovered their senses and were able to move. Charles Slaughter was unconscious, and William Lines was also in an apparently serious condition. Slaugh ters clothing had caught Are, but the names were extinguished before he was burned Duncan Thompson, who soon re covered from the fright .and the effects of the shock, ran and told'Police Ranagan of what had occurred. Hospital Physicians Notified. One glance In the boat house assured the policeman that physicians were needed, and he started off on a run to the Emer gency Hospital. On the way to the hos pital the policeman fell from exhaustion, but he recovered his strength enough to enable him to resume his journey. He fell a second time, and it is his idea that a shock from lightning had something to do with his fall. When he finally reached the hospital he was ln a state of collapse, and It was not until a stimulant had been ad ministered that he was able to give the doctors the information that they were needed at the bathing beach. Drs. Dunn, l ei kins and Hussey, resident physicians at the hospital, entered the ambulance and the animal attached to the vehicle made a Quick run through the rain. Upon reaching the boat house the physi cians faced a condition of affairs that re quired quick and heroic action, having made preparations to treat the victims while being conveyed from the river front in the ambulance. They found that Smith was dead and that those who were still un conscious were Slaughter and Lines. The former had been burned In addition to suf fering from the effects of the shock Lines had been Injured by falling and had lost some blood. When the physicians had given them what treatment they could at the boat house the two victims were placed in the ambulance and driven to the hos pital. Under the hospital treatment they soon got better, and this morning the be lief was expressed that they will recover. Eshelman. Washington and Sheckles were conveyed to the hospital In one of Knox's express wagons that happened to be on the river front at the time the building was struck. They had received minor burns and injuries and were sent to their homes yesterday afternoon. Death Certificate Given, The body of Smith was removed to the morgue, and Coroner Nevitt gave the nec essary death certificate. Undertaker Re petti conveyed the body from the morgue to his undertaking establishment this morn ing and prepared it for burial. There were two distinct marks on the body, showing the lines traversed by the lightning. They seemed to have started from the collar buttons and gone down the entire length of the body. Smith s father. R. R. Smith, sr.. Is a ma chinist on the U. S. S. Maine, now under going repairs at Cramps' shipyards Phil adelphia, and his wife was on a visit to relatives at her former home In Raltimore yesterday. The father and wife were no tified of his death. Arrangements for the funeral had not been completed this morn ing. It Is believed that the two victims in the hospital will not be able to leave there for many days. Given a Scare. The shock that caused so much damage at the bathing beach was felt at the house of detention, where the prisoners and at tendants were given a scare. Four colored women were held as prisoners in one of the large cells on the upper floor, and they were so badly frightened that they crawled under the bed. and all that was to be seen of them when the frightened matron re turned to the room were their eight feet protruding from beneath the bed. Those who were on the first floor on the struc ture saw what appeared to be a ball of fire pass through the building. Some of them felt the shock. The building sus tained no damage nor was anybody hurt. During the storm at noon Johnson's Hotel and H. J. Staley's lunch room were visited by lightning. The buildings were not damaged, but a number of persons were frightened. The streets were flooded and water caused some damage In cel lars. When the second electric storm ap peared ln the afternoon people were bet ter prepared for It. and there were not so many persons on the street. During this storm Mary Shipley, the fifteen-year old daughter of Wyatt Shipley, a grocer, was rendered unconscious by a bolt of lightning. She was seated at the front window at har father's home on Good Hope Hill at the time. A physician waa summoned from Anacostla. The child re covered In a short time. Part of a chimney of the Corcoran build ing. at Pennsylvania avenue and 13th street, waa blown down during this storm. A mall box on the corner was demolished and a pedestrian had a narrow escape. The chimney at the house of Dr. E. K. CIs sel. 2117 Pennsylvania avenue, was struck by lightning. About $25 damage wan caused. An alarm of lire was sounded last night from box T29. This was caused by the crossing ol wires near the M street bridge, and waa due to the storm. Damage In Country Districts. Reports from the surroindlng country Indicate that considerable damage was done to the crops, and overhead wires In some sections were put out of service. A number of telephone wires connecting the small towns wore not working this morn ing. but reports from the big telegraph companies indicate that the damage done their wires was comparatively slight. In some sections of the county trees were blown down and the roads were badly washed. The mounted police going over the roads this morning mnde reports of places where immediate repairs were nec essary. Excursionists who went from the city on railroad trains were caught in the storm, hut those who took the trips some distance down the river were more for tunate. At Colonial Beach only a slight shower was experienced. Four Horses Killed. Four horses were kiled by lightning dur ing tiie thunder storm Saturday afternoon. The animals belonged to John Orrison, who lives on the Lambert farm, on Brightwood avenue near the District line. The horses sought shelter under a iilg tree when the storm approached about 5 o'clock in the afternoon. When the lightning struck the tree the animals were so badly shocked that they died. Mr. Orrison estimates his loss at ?l.V>. The police were notified, and they had the bodies of the horses removed. Mr. Wilton J. l-'imiHTt owns the farm. Sailing Canoe Swamped. During the second thunder squall yes terday afternoon word was brought to Commodore Sutton, the harbormaster, that a boat had overturned in the river above Alexandria, and that several i>ersons were in danger of drowning. Captain Dean, with the police boat Vigilant. w;is sent with all speed to the scene of the accident, and off Shepherd's Landing f?>und that a sailing canoe, in which was James Gibson had overturned, but had been rigiited and balled out by the master of the bugeye Kathleen before the arrival of the Vigilant. The canoe and Its occupant were brought to this city by the Vigilant. THE WORLD OF SOCIETY. Italian Ambassador Touring Pacific Coast?Notes.
