RE PENS AC OLA, FLORIDA, WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 8, 1912. WILSON AND CLARK BAG DELEGATES, BUT DEMOCRATIC SITUATION VERY UNCERTAIN Washington, D. May 7. As the time for the Democratic national con vention draws nearer, speculation as to the Democracy's probable candidate for the presidency becomes more rife. All Is uncertainty. Thus far Woodrow Wilson and Champ Clark have bagged most of the instructed delegates. Governor Marshall, of Indiana, has tha votes of his own state; Oscar Under wood has the delegates from Alabama, and Florida. A big fight is promised, and it may be necessary for the con vention to settle upon compromise candidate. The five active candidates for the presidential plum point proudly to their records. Governor Wilson's rec ord in politics has been short, but dur ing his brief sojourn in rhe New Jer sey st&tehouse he has achieved much. His folldwers point to the workmen's compensation act, presidential prefer ence primaries, the laws providing for the regulation and control of corpora tions and other good measures which Wilson forced through the New Jersey legislature, and say that this record entitles him to hlrer responsibilities. Champ Clark'a boosters are proud of the Missourian's record In the house of representatives. They, too, are cer tain that he is cut out to be the best president the country ever had. Governor Marshall, of Indiana, points to his record as chief executive of that progressive state, and broadly hints that his fellow Democrats could not do a better thing than nominate him for president. The Ohio legislature has let slip through some excellent legislation the past two years and Gov. Judson Har mon claims the credit. He says that this record entitles him to th distin guished consldraiion of all good Dem ocrats. Harmon ia a first-rate lawyer FLORIDA LAND VESTIGATIQ!
