Reasons wnplete Summary of Presidential Situation in Florida Shows Southerner's Record Makes Him Laical Man in Minds of Voting Public. While Record1 Prof Wilson of New Jersey, Puts him out of Penning. Candidates For Delegates Discussed. IN- mil Correspondence to The F.nler irise Recorder) IVnsarola, Fla.. April 22. 11)12. Tuesday is election day. On the LOth of litis month primaries v. ill t. held in Florida, afte r probably de longest and most sensational tainpnign in the state's histury. Fur l!ie first time Florida voters will ex cess at the polls their choice fur teinocrntic presidential ntnninee. In Pensacola (and reports reach hi: lu re from out in the state in urate that it exists there also) Lit re is as much, if not mure, in irrest in the presidential preferen ce primary than in any of the lo (.,! tir stale contests. This- is a good TWO CANDIliATLS. In Florida there are but two can didates on the ticket: Oscar Under wood of Alabama and Wwidrow Wilson ol New Jersey, the other i wo t:jiididates, Champ Clark and Jud nm Harmon, having seen that the rate would finally narrow down to Underwood und Wilson, ami having 10 time nor money to throw away, hiked that their names not appear in the Florida ballets, thereby (Voiding both the bitterness and party expense of a second primary. In fact. Prof. Woodrow Wilson is (he only candidate for president who has money enough to make a campaign in every state in the Un ion. Seeing that the advocates of the Alabama man, the Southerner, the house leader, the man who has t'iven his life to the Democratic party and served the whole people d the entire country as earnestly as his district, all without a murmur seeing that this man was about to sweep Florida, the managers of trie Wilsrrn campaign in this suite, who are also managers of Candi date John T. G. Crawford for Na tional Committeeman, cried out in I mil voices that there has been a "frame-up" against Wilson. But the pmple of Florida could not be fool- thy cheap political methods. No p-ople in the world are better in lonnetl than Floridians ami espec ially tlo West Floridians keep post ed, and they saw that Harmon, Clark and Underwood were running ifjainst each other in many states, so they knew there could be no "frame-up," spelled with capital let ters, like "Big Business," und "The Interests." WHY IJUDERWOOD? But, on the other hand, the peo I le of Pensacola and other parts of this state said to themselves that Underwood seemed.to be the logi cal man for the nominatioa They knew that Underwood was the lead er of the United Democracy and the man who united it, that he had been chosen by the Democrats of the whole country to lead them, that he had never left hi9 post of duty for a day to campaign, that practi cally the only remaining issue be tween Democracy and Republican ism is the tariff and that the author df every tariff-reducing measure 'hat has passed the house ought to be the strongest man with whom to fight out that issue with the Repub licans. The people read every day where papers throughout New Eng tend, Ohio, New York State and four of the strongest publications in New York City, the World, the Post, the Times and the Herald, had en dorsed the candidacy of the Ala- uanuan. And the people decided that the North actually wants to demonstrate to the South that the instruct for Underwood; why Atabamian Will Easily Win Out. war is over, by .jM-tiug one of us to the presidency of ti,- nation, which is, and certainly 01,1 In in be, unit etl, now that the ( i4!

As Alfreo Henry Lewis says: "It is not so remarkable that he is losing jrojnd as it is that he ever had ar:y ground to lose. The votir.g public in Pen sacola and this county are be- ginning to believe that he is the I only man with whom the Demo- crats can NOT win and that the Republicans can r.at him with out leaving tbt.'r offices." It would take pagt to tell why this conclusion has ii: arrived at, but the follov ir.r. facts which have been cone1. lively proved anil not denied iv the tiwher, must, suffice I'm' t.',i.- summary of the situation: K - '.'-.gratitude to Geo.

Sr.'.::n, ol' New Jersey, whose .'::;.gazme and money barrel, )-.-; -t-ctixely, had made him what hj was; his com plete change of mind on every issue of the day upon becoming a candidate for oifice: his com plete revolution of attitude from the ;jolitics and expressed beliefs that had made him the ideal of Wall Street to the kird of iwliti cian that caused him to be en dorsed by the Populists; his still unforgiven abuses of Organized Labor, which he first believed stood for the least and poorest service for the money; to his po sition now as a candidate that every man is a kin? having the risrht to initiate and pass upon all laws and to recall all judges who do not please him by their sentences and decisions; his most uncomplimentary remarks about the South and Southern heroes after he had become a Northern man by choice: his failure to even mention a long list of the greatest and most noble men this section has produced, among whom are Robert Toombs.

FRANK .MAYF.S A WILSON DKI.K-CATE- Rejtorts from the Third Dis trict, in which Frank L. Mayes is a candidate for delegate on the Wilson platform, do not give much idea of how that race will terminate, but the consensus of opinion in Pensacola is that Mr. Mayes, on acount of his plat form and general political poli cies of the past and now, espec ially in local affairs, will not car ry his home county, but that Dr F. G. Renshaw who beat Mayes for the office eight years ago, will have a long lead over the editor of the Pensacola Journal, which paper has asserted that Oscar Underwood of Alabama is the candidate of "Wall Street" and "Big Business", that he is a substitute candidate, and that there has been a frame-up to beat the man from New Jersey, Locals and Personals.

In many ol the schools nf the north they have added a ms catioi.al bureau and an industri id feature which 1 am told bus resulted in much good. After a chiltl has acquired I he rudiments of an education it is' taken to this bureau or lewd and it is ascertained for Mitt vocation in life it is best ruled, then it is given those studies that are going to lie of the est practical use. Some writer has said that the man who was best educated was he who was most useful, and that the true test of education lay in the possessor's ability tt. serve. With the industrial feature, our boys nnd girls who choose to tlo so, are enabled to le.arn, both in a practical and scientific rue ner, one of the useful trades tr.d not. have to leave the home influ ence which is so necessary tti t.hf young, arid go oil' to serve ;tr apprenticeship where the kr v,' edge gained would not be sr. thorough.
