FORMER MILFORD MAN MAY HAVE BEEN SLAIN
Earl Lyons "Taken For A Ride" Is Opinion Of Relatives On Return

Milford people who attended the funeral of Earl Lyons in Chicago yesterday brought back word that it is believed that the young man had been "taken for a ride" - murdered. Two men are under arrest as suspects. Mr. Lyons formerly lived here and had a number of Milford relatives. The mother of Mr. Lyons stated her son who owns and drives a taxicab had received a telephone call at 11:30 the night of his death asking him to take a party to Milwaukee. He answered the call. About an hour and a half later the phone rang again and the same voice, which ordered the taxi, said, "Your son had been hurt. You had better go to the hospital." Mr. Lyons had been fatally injured. there was a large hole in his head and a deep cut on one leg. There were marks on the wrists as though he had been in a struggle. One tire on the car was slashed. It is said that Lyons had been warned not to get into the taxicab business by some of his competitors and one way the Chicago racketeers have of eliminating competition is to take their competitors "for a ride." Mr. Lyons often visited in Milford and was here last week, returning to Chicago the day before Decoration day. Those attending the funeral from Milford were: Mr. and Mrs. Grant Holt, Mr. And Mrs. Sherman Holt, Mrs. Orth Hoover, Mrs. Nannie Groves. He was a taxi driver. He murdered.

ELECTRIC CURRENT KILLS LINEMAN HUNG ON WIRES
Samuel Thorpe Has Tragic Death While at Work in Kankakee
LOSES FOOTING AND FALLS ON A LIVE WIRE
Man Who Lived in Iroquois County Until a Year Ago Meets Death While Clearing Storm Damage to Wires of Kankakee Light and Power Co.
Funeral Held at Iroquois Wednesday

Samuel Thorpe was electrocuted Monday while working on an electric light pole at Kankakee. His brothers and other relatives living at Watseka and Donovan were notified of the accident soon afterward. The body was taken to Iroquois for burial, Wednesday. Until about a year ago Thorpe had lived here and in Iroquois county. He was a brother of George Thorpe of this place. His mother and one of his brothers live at Donovan. His father, Jack Thorpe, died here about a year ago. He was a lineman employed by the Kankakee Gas and Electric company and was working at a transformer box on one of the poles of that company. Practically all of a current of 2,200 volts passed through his body and death came almost instantly. He struggled a moment on the pole and was still. According to an account of the accident given in the Kankakee Democrat, Thorpe and Roy Litner, an assistant forman for the company, were sent to the transformer to fuse it. The electrical storm had burned out the fuses leaving the district in darkness. Thorpe went up the pole and Litner directed the work from the ground. The lineman had inserted one fuse and was in the act of putting in another one when the spur on his left foot slipped from the pole causing his body to lurch downward. To catch himself Thorpe seized the 2,200 volts and at the same time his body came in connection with two independent telephone company wires located on a cross arm lower down. The current passed through his body grounding in the telephone wire. The shock caused him to cry out and Litner hearing his cry started up the pole to rescue him. Litner had no spurs and as he touched the dangling spur of Thorpe the current from the body threw him from the pole to the ground, a distance of perhaps 15 feet. Litner escaped injury and ran to a house where he telephoned to the company's office and called for a doctor and an ambulance. Later he procured a ladder and with the assistance of Officer Joe Kohl on another ladder was able to release the body, which was hanging from the safety belt, the telephone wires having burned away in the meantime and released the body from the deadly current. Thorpe gave one or two gasps for breath and expired as he was being taken from the pole. The body was taken to the Hickey morgue where Coronor L. E. Fenouille held the inquest Tuesday morning. Thorpe was 30 years of age and married, having one child. He went to work for the Electric company on March 9th, of this year, having previously been employed by the Independent telephone company and the C. I. & S. He was an experienced lineman. The evidence showed that the pole was wet from the recent rains, making a footing with spurs not sure. Working between the high tensions wire and the two telephone wires his job was a perilous one even for an experienced man. Members of the Electrical Workers Union of Kankakee, of which the deceased was a member, will act as pallbearers, and accompany the remains to Iroquois. Samuel M. Thorpe was born at Sheldon, IL, June 7, 1881, and was at the time of his untimely death 29 years, 11 months and 15 days old. He was untitled in marriage in 1904 to Sadi Lyons, of Milford, IL. To this union three children were born, two passing away in infancy. Besides his widow and little son, Donald, he leaves to mourn him a mother, Mrs. Margaret Thorpe, of Donovan, IL, four brothers, Frank and James of Donovan, IL, George of Watseka and Gruver of Pueblo, CO, three sisters, Mrs. Nicholas Eyrich and Mrs. W. R. Bartrum, Fort Wayne, IN, and Mrs. T. E. Clarke of Danville, IL. It is said Thorpe allowed his insurance policies to lapse but months ago. He was a telephone lineman.
