went with the pastor wrote back and
it was learned that he organized a
new church in the state of Indiana,
where he had settled, and lie served
this church as pastor until his death.
History tells us of this man, that 'he
- was a wolden' to the qpeoplo. The rec
ords say that hundreds owned him as
their spiritual father. This accounts
- as to why they followed him to the
far away state of Indiana. In describ
Ing him the records say that .he was
somewhat singular in his manner and
- a stranger to pride. -ills opportunities
for acquiring human learning had 'been
limited, not what you would call an
educated man; he was eloquent, sti
t -ple, yet powerful. lie spoke as one
who felt that he was surrounded 'by
the bulwark of truth. Thie fac t that lie
was a man of strong perso.,ality ac

pastor but as a, leader of the people to

DELAVAN SMITH IS
DEAD IN ILLINOIS
Famous Publisher and Central Figure
In Pannam Olna Issue Expires.
Lake Forest, Ills., Aug. 25.-Dela'van
ISmith, publisher of the Indianapolis
News, who has been critically ill at his
summer home here, died tonight at
8:30 o'clock. After apparently gain
ing during the day, he suffered a sid
den relasse tonight and died a few
:Mi. Smith nuffered from anaemia.
Several 'blood transfusions were iade
in an effort to save his life.
Mr. Smith was the son of William
Henry Smith, a veteran newspaper
man of Cincinnati and Chicago. le
-was a cousin of the late Vice President
Charles .Warren Fairbanks. -lie was
born December 28, 1861, in Cincinnati
where his father was a newspapeir re
porter in Civil War days. The elder
-Smith was at. one time general mana
ger of the Western Associated Press.
-Mr. Smith at one time was assist
ant general manager of the Associated
Press. Besides his newspaper inter
est he had holdings in several enter
prises including the Oliver Typewriter
company, of which lie was vice pres&.
dent and director.
In the controversy over the Panama
Canal route during the Roosevelt ad
ministration, Mr. Smith for a time be
came a center of national interest,
owing to the news crllteism of methods
by which the Panama Canal territory
was acquired and the resulting indict
ments against oMr. Smith In tile federal
court of the District of Columbia.
While air. Smith and Mr. Roosevelt
were personal friends, the News dis
cussed the canal question freely al
though Mr. Smith himself did not ,per
sonally wiite the comment. Mr. Smitlh
contended that he had the right of
trial in the state in which the paper
was published, and was successful in
resisting removal to the district of
Columbia. The case never came to
trial, although President Roosevelt en
rolled 'i.Nr. Smith in his fictitious Ana
M1r. Smith was a bachelor.
