Then the World respectfully f sug suggests
gests suggests that the democrats of the House
of Representatives proceed to select a
speaker who can work in harmony
with the administration.
We say this without prejudice to toward
ward toward Mr. Clark, for whom the World
has only sentiments of friendship. But
Mr. Clark's individual grievances are
much less important than a successful
government of the United States.
Mr. Clark Is warranted in holding
Mr. Bryan responsible for his defeat in
the Baltimore convention. But If Mr.
Clark has been nominated he would
have been beaten at the polls, and the
country would have had Theodore
Roosevelt for president. Mr. Clark's
candidacy could never have withstood
such a campaign against boss rule as
Mr. Roosevelt made last fall. A dem democratic
ocratic democratic candidate for president nom nominated
inated nominated by the influence of Murphy and
Jim Smith and Tom Taggart and Jim
Guffey and- Roger Sullivan and
Thomas F. Ryan and AugBelmont
would have contested with Mr. .Taft
for the dubious hoor of finishing

the nomination, then Mr. Bryan saved
the democratic party from disaster
and the country from a Roosevelt
As it was, Mr. Wilson polled fewer
votes than did Mr. Bryan in 1896 or in
1900 or 1S08. The democratic party
was savel only because It had a can candidate

was beyond question, whose quarrel
with boss government was a matter

would have been another Alton B.
All this may not assuage Mr. Clark's
disappointment, but facts are facts. It
is practically the unanimous opinion
of democrats that Mr. Clark should re receive
ceive receive the consolation of another term
as speaker. In the circumstances it Is
Mr. Clark's duty to meet his party
half-way and suppress all evidence of
an animosity that can reflect no credit
upon himself and is pregnant with
possibilities of democratic discord.
Mr. Bryan is making no war upon
Mr. Clark, and if Mr. Clark is deter determined

should not be permitted to do it as

a trip to the Keys for the purpose of
surveying and reporting on the pro

draught vessels. The citizens are
cognizant of the coming possibilities
of the Florida ports when the Panama

of gaining the prestige, as a port, that
they formerly possessed, by securing
a municipal dock, and by getting the
government to deepen one of the two
channels leading up to the city. Be

The poor victim, whose name has
never been mentioned in the papers,
was the first witness called. She was
brought in from the judge's private
office, supported on either side by the
sheriff and her husband. She was
sworn and told the story in a low
voice, trembling and halting, but with
no shadow of doubt or uncertainty.

Each of the witnesses, both for the
state and defense, gave their evidence,
and all told substantially the same
story. Johnson himself took the stand
but did not help his case. The evidence
can only result in a conviction. A
more clear, a plainer case of guilt has
never been made.
State Attorney Davis stated that he
would not argue the case. Judge

FLORIDA HAS BEEN
' GOOD TO FLAGLER
The Times-Union a few days ago
said that Mr. Flagler bu'lt the East
Coast Railway with the help of other
private citizens. This is false. The
land grants given by the state of
Florida added much to the building of
this road. It has received so much
land for even mile of railway built.
The Times-Union forgets that J. Fier Fier-pont

road railroad and is making a profit out of it
that's what he built it for. He knew
of Florida's climate and he establish established

world, in order to make more money.
Mr. Flagler is not in Florida for his

He owes more to Florida than Florida

all of this rot. Some Jacksonville peo people

Why, Herman Finn has done more for
Jacksonville than Mr. Flagler. .... Finn

Great Point to Be Remembered When
Broiling of the Meat Is
In an article on "The Appetizing
Beefsteak," in the Woman's Home
Companion, Fannie Merritt Farmer,
the well-known cooking authority, pre
sents a number of recipes and gives
the following; general advice about
"The underlying principle which
governs good broiling is this: One
side of the meat must be quickly sear
ed, the meat must be turned, and the
other side quickly seared. This pre prevents
vents prevents the escape of any of the juices.
Turn almost constantly for the first
minute of the cooking, then the meat
must be cooked on one side,, turned
and cooked oa the other, to suit in individual
dividual individual taste.
"The best cuts of meat for broiling
are porter house, sirloin, crosscut of
rumpsteak and second and third cuts
from top of round. Porterhouse and
sirloin cuts, although commanding
about the same price per pound as
the cross cut of the rump, prove more
expensive on account of the greater
loss in bone and fat. Round steak is
very juicy, but, having coarser fiber,
is never as tender. Neither 13 the
flank end of a porterhouse very ten

to cut It off before cooking the steak
and use it for meat cakes (Hamburg
steak) or a small stew, or perhaps a
small beefsteak pie. Cut out the
tenderloin and reserve It to be cook
ed for one meal; cut off the flank and
save it to be prepared for another;
then broil the sirloin for dinner. The
bone may be used to give added rich
ness to the stock, if the flank end is
utilized for a stew."

purposes whenever possible.
