Subject of Address Before Phi
Beta Kappa by Dr. James
(Special to The Times-Dispatch]
Wllllamsburg. Va.. December I.?Dr.
James Power Smith was the chlet
speaker at th* meeting of Phi Beta
Kappa at the College of William ano
Mar.- T.: j-ecay night. The subject
of the address was "Disputed Points
In the Life of ?Stonewall' Jackson-''
As an aide to the great strategist. Dr.
Smith knew, as no other living man
does, the closest and most personal
facts of Jackson's life and spoke out
of a rich and beautiful love. The Im?
putations of over-ambltlon. of lack of
humor, of awkwardness, were all
answered by Dr. Smith with point ana
evidence. He showed the great-heart -
ed, deeply religious, sympathetic, hu?
man nature of the man. and HUstrateU
It with mirth-provoking and delight
full* droll stories and with Incidents
of such heart-Interest as to bring tears
to the eyes. He showed the lack of
historic basis for the famous Barbara
Frletchle story, but paid a beautiful
tribute to Whittle:, who Immortalized
the story which was told nim by Mrs.
Southworth. the novelist, through a
poem which Dr. Smith declared to be
true to Jackson's humane spirit, if un?
true aa to real fact. He showed the
humanity of Jackson by stating that
as his aide, the speaker nimsclt han?
dled $30,000 raised under the general's
direction for the relief of the suffering
people of Frederick. Md. The story or
Ja. ksor.'s little friend. Jennie Corbln.
was told, and how she would come to
his quarters to play and the general
would ser.<i the little maid home with
his gold braid wound about her hair.
Then, at last, when the message came
that the little glri was dead, her
grown-up playmate sat far into the
night hours grieving over the little
friend that he was so soon to join.
In illustration of the great mar.'s
sense of humor. Dr Smith told man)';
churmlngly funny stories. Never, he;
said, had he seen him more hilariously
moved than when he received a let
lag addressed to "Mr. Stone W. Jack?
son." which began. "May it please
Your Lordship." It was from a. wo- ,
man recently from Ireland, who sought
the release of her husband from the
The president of the society. Hon
Robart M. Hughes, of Norfolk, presid?
ed over the meeting and introduced the
speaker?. The poet of the occasion
was Dr. Benjamin F. Sledd. of \N ake
Forest, who Introduced his poems by
a tribute to Virginia, his native State,
in which, while paying a compliment
to the progresslveneas of North Ciro- -
Una. which surpassed, he said, the
shrewdness of the Connecticutt Yan?
kee, he yet deplored the fact that so
many of this State s Institutions are
not In the hands of native Virginians.
Dr. Sledd read a poem to Virginia en
titled "To the Old Mother." He also1
read a negro-verse to an old gentle-j
man of the back-stbek. Isaac, and AI
sonnet to the Greek poetess. "Sappho." ,
At the Initiation which followed
twelve members were added to the so?
ciety's roU. including Dr. Wy cliff e
