South Carolina school has alone deterred
me from calling your attention more

catastrophe because of unsafe conditions

These conditions must be remedied and
the law has placed the responsibility
upon the insurance commissioner.
"We have constructed many fireproof

MILLIONS WILL BE WON
AND LOST ON THE DERBY
Estimated That in One Race $23,000.-
000 Will Be Turned Over.
(By the Associated Press.)
London. June 6.—On the occasion of
the "Derby,” England's most popular
horse race, which will be run over the
famous Epsom Downs June 6, more
money will change hands than on aiiy
other sporting event in the world. It
is 'estimated that on this one race $25,-
000.000 will be turned over.
The actual wagering on the race sur
passes anything 'which takes place on
several of the other big races here. It
is an occasion when nearly every one
makes a bet. the amounts varying from
the office boy's twopence to the wealthy
plan's thousand pounds.
But by far the greater amount of
money involved is in the sweepstakes
which are organised in, connection with
the event. Every office throughout the
land lias its list, and here again' the
amounts invested vary according to the
means of the participants.
There an- also several sweepstakes
open to the public, the most popular
of these being the Calcutta Sweep, which
offers about S4SO,(MM) for the person
wl(o draws the winning horse. Then
there is the London Stoek Exehange
sweep with its first prize of
rind the Dublin Hospital sweep which,
pays-$50,000 to the lucky dinner. The
tickets for these lotteries vary from
$2.50 to $5.00,, and were snapped up
immediately they went on sale. They
are now at a premium, and are only
obtainable by paying enormous sums to
those who happened to be lucky enough
to secure them when first issued.
The gambling spirit is confined not
only to pepple living in Eugland. for
Americans in different parts of the
world have shown that they too love a
little flutter, hence their friends in Lon
don add elsewhere have been iunndutpd
with requests to purchase as many
tickets as possible on their behalf.
One American woman is sakl W* have
secured tickets for all the bigger sweep
stakes. and should fortune smile upon
her she may win nearly $1,000,0(10.

ing to a statement issued tonight by
W. H. Rhodes, of the North Carolina and

"The condition of the crop is 77 per
cent, of a normal at present as shown
by the cotton report released by the

the cotton acreage jn North Carolina was
fertilized, which is above the usual av

aged 445 [Mmlids this year as compared
with 406 pounds last year. This was a

"The shortage of seed in tlie main cot

that the acreage to be picked, or that re

Russian is Charged With
Killing 33 Persons and He
Has Confessed to Several
of the Murders.
MURDER IS VERY
EASY, HE SAYS
Says Only One Person Ever
Resisted.—Usually Hit the
Victims With Hammer or
Moscow, June (1 (By the Associated
Press!.—The tidal of Vasili Komaroff
for the murder of thirty-three persons
opens today. Such extraordinary in- p
terest has been manifested in the case
that the proceedings are to be held in
the large Polytechnic Museum instead
of the ordinary court chamber.
Komaroff, in his cell, told correspond
deut he hoped the court would make a
speedy job of it and shoot him quickly.
“I am fifty-two, have had a good time,
and don’t want to live any longer,” said
the mild-eyed peasant. He then re
marked calmly that murder is “an aw
fully easy job,” adding ;
-I killed a can who tried to beat me
in a horse trade. He was the only one
who ever resisted. It was very easy—
I just knocked them on their heads
with a hammer or strangled them.”
The prisoner said he could not even
remember some of his victims.
