One of the opposing candidates for
governor has demanded that now that
B. S. Sterling is a candidate for
governor, he should resign his posi-
tion on the highway commission.
What the candidate would really like
for Mr. Sterlin • to do would be to
resign his position as a candidate for
Al Smith should demand that
Hoover resign. Bob Henry should de-
mand that Morris She nard resign.
Charle Murphy should demand that
Daniel E. Garret resign. The process
may be continued indefinitely.
As a matter of fact, such has not
been the custom in this country. Such
statesmen as Henry Clay, James G.
Blaine and William Howard Taft have
continued un members of the cabinet
during their candidacies for the
nomination for president of the United
James Stephen Hopp continued as
attorney general while a candidate for
governor. So did Charles A. Culber-
son. So did Dan Moody. O. B. Col-
quitt continued as railroad commis-
sioner while a candidate for gover-
nor. Earle B. Mayfield continued as
a member of the railroad commission
while a candidate fot; United States
Senator. All of their candidacies
were approved by the people of Texas.
Cominxr right down to the cold
logic of the thing, if the chairman of
the highway commission should not
remain as chairman while permitting
his name to go on the ticket a* a
candidate for governor, then, by
reasoning far more forceful, no
governor of Texas should remain
governor of Texas while offering him-
self as a candidate to be elected ajfain.
Far more patronage and prestige are
at the command of the governor. The
roasonintf is precisely the same, but
in the case of the governor, if it
applies at all it applies with far
By the same token, surely no presi-
dent of the United States—the great-
eat office in all the world, the most
powerful, and the one carrying by
great odds the mdfet patronage-
should continue in the presidency
while a candidate for office.

Aside from the sense of public
duty, R. S. Sterling would personally
be relieved if he ceased to be chair-
man of the highway commission of
Texas. But the people of Texas are
not so foolish as to want any i:uch
thing. They are neither so unmind-
ful of their own interests nor so ab-
surd otherwise as to wish themselves
deprived of the service.* of a tried,
experienced man, suddenly and tem-
porarily to be replaced because the
people in great numbers are demand-
ing that) he become governor of the
state. The people of Texas are not

If R. S. Sterling is a worthy and
useful member of the highway com-
mission, no sensible man should be
willing to say, either that the state
should be deprived of his services on
such commission .because of his pro-
posed elevation to the governorship
or that the occupanc of that useful
position should disqualify R. S. Ster-
ling to be governor of Texas.
No. it is not the resignation from
the highwav commission that the
opponents of R. S. Sterling really de-
sire. The real desire of their hearts
is that he resign as a candidate for
