Two men are being urged to say
they will accept nomination at
the hands of their party and are
saying, "I wont." Hundreds of
their admirers say "you must,"
still they shake their heads and say
The first of these is President
Roosevelt, whorecieves all suggest-
ions that he owes a duty to his
country and party which has twice
honored him and must meet that
duty with a brave acceptance of a
re-nomination for the position that
he now holds, with a shake of the
head and an occasional recall of the
declaration he made when his elec-
tion was assured that he would not
"seek or accept the nomination for
The other is Colonel H. D. Mc-
Knight, register of the United
States Land office at Lawton, who
is being urged to say that he will
accept the honor of being the re-
publican party's standard bearer
in the fifth district race for mem-
ber of congress.
To all that insist that he must
accept the nominaiton he says "I
don't want it," and yet from Law-
ton and various other parte of the
district comes the cry "draft him
and make him run."
In both of the above cases the
Signal-Star stands the same. It
admires both men and would gladly
support them for the places their
names are connected with, but ow-
ing to the bull dog tenacity with
which Roosevelt hangs to a position
once taken, an opportunity to
again support his candidacy, and
yet it does seem to the writer that
Roosevelt can afford to be great
enough to recede from the position ;
he took when the conditions were
not the same as they are now,
and to signify a willingness to
spend another four years in carry-
ing to completion the various re-
forms that he has started into life.
No man is so great that he can af-
ford to ignore his country's need
of his services in unsettled times,
whether these conditions arise
from civil or war causes, and there
is no doubt of the fact that the
whole country would feel easier
as to the future if Roosevelt would
come bravely to the front and say
"though I have no desire to be re-
nominated or elected to another
term, if my country men believe
that it is my duty to do so and
tender me the position without ef-
fort upon my part to secure it,
I will accept."
He is great enough to afford
to take the position but will he?
But in the other cases where a
man has grown grey in the service
of his party, and doing good and
acceptable work in a public posit-
ion in no ways connected with the
position for which he is urged to
accept the nomination the Signal-
Star is not so pronounced in its
views as to his duty. It may be
Colonel McKnight's duty to give
a $3000 position that he may be the
party's standard bearer in a hope-
less battle, and yet the writer does
not believe it is. There is no doubt
that he is the strongest man the
republicans could select as the fifth
district cogressional candidate. In
this district which was formed with
the express view of makings strong
democratic district. No republi-
can is better known or more popu-
lar than is Colonel McKnight and
the Signal-Star would be pleased to
have the honor of supporting him.
There is no question but that he
would carry a bigger vote than any
other republican who now resides
in the district and knowing this
the writer hopes that may be some
wny of getting around the necess-
ity of his giving up the position
which he is so acceptably filling
so that he may accept the duty
which the party seems in earnest
about forcing on him. He cant
afford to give up a $3000 position
for the empty honor of making the
congressioal race and yet seems to
the writer that he could afford to
give up this position for a few
weeks to satisfy the demands of
his party . A sixty days leave of
absence ought to be easily secured
one who has been so faithful
and efficient an officer as has been
Col. McKnight. During this leave
of absence the colonel could make
the race and it would be nobody's
business but his own. Under these
circumstances the Signal-Star feels
very much like joining in the pop-
ular cry, "draft him and make

Not whitewash; paint. Do you
happen to know—it don't belong to
your business to know about paint,
you know—do you happen to know
that most of the makers of paint
stuff it out with lime and clay
and water and air?
They do stuff it out in the can;
but not on the house. They make
more gallons to sell or to buy; more
money to pay for for paint; more
money to pay for putting it on; a
good deal more money to pay far
putting it on; but no more beauty;
more rust; decay, disappointment;

all paint, no sham and full meas-
