hours spent nt Oyster Hny III the

Certainly he will not if tlisro is uny
question about the jMihtie and the
politicians wanting him.
Too little eniphnMis 1ms uppatt'iitly
been laid on the paragraph in the
cotonel's statement eableil from Trin
idad, in which he said that tho public
must have in its mood something; of
the heroic if it wanU him.
"If the people of this oomitry
want peace and profit at tho pticu
of honor, they don't tvntit me."
.Must Need a Horn
Thin ie how the colonel shot it nt
a republican congressman who Iiml
come to tell him that "poHiaps tvo
may nominate you." For fifteen iniu
utes.the colonel laid down tho law to
his congressional visitor lu true Mo
saic fashion. "If thoro aro any
iIoiiIiIh in your mind," the colonel
went on, "plenne resolve thoui in fa
vor of not uomiimting me. If I um by
any chance to he the noiniuoo of tint
republicans or progressive, or both,
it enn only ho with the uuderatuiidiiiK
thnt the country is in tho mood to
make any saarifieea to maintain iU
honor ns a nation. I said in Trinidad
flint rf it wanted me tUo imhlio must
have something of the hernia lu ita
mood. What I meant wna, that the
country ioiihI he willing lo consider
duties iik well its right and to face
the poHwihilitv of sacrifice and self
denial in undertaking; audi task ns
duty might imose. An president, or
candidate for president, I should ree
oiftiixe but one kind of citisensbip ami
one allegiance. If the country isn't
reudv lr this kind of a cnudidate,
then I am not the man to run."
And there wns much mora to Hie
same effect with qnita plain talk on
tho subject of the eouoHel's oolite
unconcern whether or not he alien
ated a large number of foreign-hum

went awuv somewhat tlaned.
