Senator Fletcher's Secretary's Ans Answer
wer Answer to State Committeeman's
Argument for Stockton
The other day, John T. C. Craw-;
fcrd, national democratic commit-'
teeman for Florida, published an ar-;
t'cle in the Jacksonville Metropolis,
in which he announced himself for
Stockton and criticised Senator Flet-; standards. West Virginia, Kentucky,

The first reason given by Mr. ; could in no sense be properly elaim elaim-'t

At that time, not only were the
mill men of Florida and the South Southern

the free list, but Senator Fletcher,
with most of his democratic col colleagues

the bill that was being made was not

publican republican protective measure, they
would not feel that it was unjust or
unwise to favor putting the products
of the South on the free list while
the products of the North were to
be given protection.
They did not vote for a protective ;

against putting this important pro product

jthe tariff bill and equalize the dut-;
it and place them on a competitive
basis and enlarge the free list in ac-
jcordance with the platform of the
part, Senator Fletcher voted for free;
lumber and other reductions, as did
, his colleagues.
The Second Reason
The second reason given: "He has
faored special interests." The only
evidence in support of this statement
is that he voted for duty on iron ore
n 1909 In the first pIace the plat.
form did not call for placing iron
! ore on the free list. I deny that it is
a trust-controlled product. Then
again, duties were fixed by republi-
i cans and according to republican
voted certain lower duties in
oraer to make as great a reduction
a? possible, even though they were
r:ot as great as they would have j
maae nai they the power to place
them where they desired.
The other anege,i evidence is that ;

After Capt. Tom Phinney rejoined
the two girls, he was not long In com comprehending

had become reversed, in some unac unaccountable

of their separation. Where he had

apparently were care-free and happy.
The change was most noticeable in
Jessie Willard, for beneath Delia's gay
humor there still ran an undercurrent
However, even Jessie remained more

were not unpleasant her glowing coun countenance

As the car drew up at the piazza
where Tom was waiting, Jessie clapped
her hands and cried enthusiastically:

to ourselves. There is nothing so tire tiresome

The others agreed; but in spite of

girls, Tom was constantly relapsing
into a state of gloomy, preoccupied sl sl-lence.

regarding him with a curious look.
"Did you see your friend?" she in inquired,

"He is out of town," Tom answered
"1 didn't know but that you had
heard eome bad news," the girl mur murmured;
mured; murmured; "it seems strange that we can't
all be gay at the same time."
"If you'll tell me where you went
to shed your troubles, I'd like to go
myself," said Tom, and wondered why
Jessie Willard blushed so furiously.
He was not to be rallied, however,
and the meal was a long drawn out
aSair for him.
His brain was the battle ground of
conflicting doubts and misgivings that
led to a most irritating condition of ir irresolution

governed by any policy thus far, it
had been one of passive non-interference.
As master of the Kohinur, his

drawing near if it had not already

His meeting with Flint had been
fertile with references that had
brought his relegated misgivings and
perplexities to a position where they
demanded that some disposition be
made of them, and the' crowning diffi difficulty

to do so?

on board were hie daughter and per perhaps

no, his wife was dead at any

captain was lending himself to the

But where did "Delia come into the
maze? And who -was she, anyway?
The time had come for him to know,
and he meant to get some sort of ex explanation

as soon as an apportunity presented
The party returned to the yacht, and
there by and by Tom began to fear
that the opportunity to talk to Delia
would not occur. In truth, had he been
a bit more discerning, in the persist persistency

However, about mid-afternoon the
two girls excused themselves and re retired,
tired, retired, and Tom was enabled once more
to contemplate the Kohinur more as a
vessel of which he was master, and
less as an isolated corner of Arcady.
One of the first things he observed
was the presence of a stranger. For
some minutes, underneath his troubled
meditations, had stirred a vague un uneasy
easy uneasy senee that he was being watched;
and happening to look in a certain di direction,
rection, direction, his glance encountered a man
whom he had not before seen. He
promptly walked up to the stranger
and demanded to know what he was
doing on board. Winnard. the second
mate, was a witness to the episode,
and he took it upon himself to explain.
"He's all right, sir. Mr. Willard
brought him aboard last night."
With the moral certainty that the
newcomer had been watching him all
afternoon, Tom went to his cabin.
Alone, he took up again the burden
of hie doubts and uncertainties.
Should he not warn Willard that
Flint was close upon his trail? WTiat
would Wriliard think of the Man of
Iron's interference? His position
strongly urged him to go to the. char charterer
terer charterer and lay the matter before him.
Then his vacillating will would take
a pendulum swing to the other ex extreme;

Claremont and phone Flint where Wil Willard

were really engaged in no dishonor dishonorable

was to be believed, Tom would thus
be lending himself to the defeat of Jus Justice

she could help him. But he did not

Tom retired to his cabin, but could
not sleep. He was oppressed by a
sense of anticipation, a conviction that
something was about to happen. When
