To the Mayor and City Council of
Laurens, S. C.j
We the undersigned fire insurance;
igenta of the City of Laurens, desire j
to bring to your attention the subject
Of preventable fire waste. Speaking
In a general way, all fire Insurance,
whether by mutual or stock compan
ies, Is based upon the principal of col
lectlng enough premiums from those
who do not burn to pay for those who
do, consequently every preventable
loss that occurs Is a tax upon every
other Insurer In a given locality. The
avoidable fire loss In America exceeds
that of any other country. There Is
a Widespread movement at present to
reduce such loss by all available
mentis. The experience of the Insur
ance department of our State, in com
mon with that of surrounding States,
leads them to the conclusion that a
large part of this loss results from
over Insurance?not necessarily in
tentional dishonesty or criminality on
the part of the Insurer but from tho
fact that two much insurance leads to
carelessness. Indifference and want of
care on the part of the insured. 1'p
to the present time the Insurance writ
ten on a given piece of property has
been entirely a matter with tho Indi
vidual agent who acts more or less in
Ignorance of what other agents have
done or may do. For the purpose of
getting the business on a better basis,
with more system, and In justico to
all concerned we would suggest and
! petition your honorable body, for the
! general welfare and public good, to
' appoint a committee of three disin
terested appraisers to fix the insurnhlo
lvalue of all property within the in
i corporate limits. We would SUggOSt
a commission of three members one
of whom would be a competent con
tractor and builder-- another a dealer
In building supplies or material, and
the third to be the Chief of the Fire
j Department of the city or some other
j good business man who Is familiar
j with the values. We believe that the
jsum of $200 will pay for having this
; work done and we would respectfully
I request that this amount be approprl
ated by you for the purpose. The
town receives from our companies, by j
way of licenses taxes, etc. approxi
mately ?I000. per year?$700 directly I
from licenses and taxes and tho City's
proportionate part of ?1 100 com Infi
to tho county. Wo hellovo thai your
favorable consideration of this pro-1
posal would show to the Insurance
world and the companies that we, the
agents, and you, the representatives of
the business Interests of our town are
desirous of co-operating with all other
agencies at work for the prevention
of the needless fire wastes of our city

Occurred After Midnight.
The tragedy occurred shortly after
midnight. Madcro and Snare?., who
had been prisoners in the National
palace since their arrest on Tuesday
last, were placed in an automobile,
which was accompanied by another
car and escorted by 100 rurals un
der the orders of Commandant Fran
cisco Cardenas and Col. Rafael Pi
rn I nonto.
With Instruction not to outdis
tance the escort, the cars moved slow
ly. No Incident occurred until they
had reached a point near the peni
tentiary where in an open place the
guards' attention' was attracted, ac
cording to the official version, to a
group of persons following. Shots
were fired at the escort out of the
darkness. The rurals closed In and
ordered the prisoners out of the car.
Attacked the Guards.
Thirty of the guards surrounded
j the prisoners, while tho remainder
disposed themselves to resist at at
[ tack. About fifty men, some afoot
and some mounted, it Is alleged,
threw themselves upon tho detach
ment guarding the cars and the ex
change of shots lasted twenty min
utes, when the attacking party fled.
The dead bodies of Madero and
Suarez were then found.
The body of Madero shows only one
wound. A bullet entered the hack of
the head and emerged at the fore
Tho body of Pino Suarez shows
many wouncis. entering from In front.
Of the male members of th*. Ma
dero family only two now are In the
capital. One Is Francisco Madero, the
father, who bitterly opposed his son's
conducting a revolution in 1910, and
rode across northern Mexico In
an effort to overtake and dissuade
hint; the other Is P.rncsto Madero
j the former minister of finance, an
uncle, though only one year older
than the late president.
Gustavo Madero, a brother, was
