VETERAN EDITOR DEAD Charles Emory Smith Expires From Heart Disease AT HOME IN PHILADELPHIA Self-Made Man. and a Successful Journalist. * t EDITED PRESS MANY YEARS Had Been Postmaster General and Minister to Russia?"Was Twice Married?A Public Speaker. ? PHILADELPHIA. January 'JO.?Charles Emory Smith, oilltor of the Philadelphia Press, formerly Postmaster General and former minister to Russia, died suddenly and alone yesterday morning in his home. 20U8 Spruce street. Death was due directly to myocarditis, which is an inflammation of the muscular part of the heart. The left side of the heart was found to be greatly dilated. .. Mrs. Smith had gone to church and re turned shortly after 0 o'clock. She wynt to her husband's room anrj found hi-* body, still warm, lying across the bed. He had been dressing when the fatal seizure came. Medical aid was summoned immediately, but death had come befor Mrs. Smith entered the room. Mr. Smith had not been well since th?> evening of November 30> when he at tended a dinner given by the Brotherhood of St. Andrew. Saturday night Dr. J. Nicholas Michaels was summoned to treat him for what was then believed to be nothing more than acute indigestion. Career of Mr. Smith. Charles Emory Smith wa? born in Mansfield. Conn., February IS. 1842. th ? son of Emory B. Smith, of old New Eng land stock. He got his early education In the village school at Mansfield, and later at Albany, N. Y., where his father moved when Mr. Smith was s?ven years old. He graduated from the high school Charles Emory Smith. at Albany, taught in that school for a short time and then entered Union Col lege with the class of '61. Immediately upon his graduation Mr. Smith followed his ambition to enter the newspaper field and got a small placo on the Albany Express, then the chief sup porting organ in Albany of Gov. Fenton Passing through the apprentice stage of newspaper work very rapidly, the young man severed his connection with the Ex press in 1805, after he had become one of its editors, and assumed the position of editor-in-chief of the Journal, with an in terest in the paper. It was in his capacity of director of the policy of this paper that Mr. Smith be gan to take a large part in state politics. The Journal was at that time known :i? the "state paper;'* it carried that title on its front sheet, and a large part of its business prosperity was due to the exclu sive contracts it held for the state print ing. As editor of the paper Mr. Smith began to be a power in state conventions, and it was he who wrote state platforms for republican conventions for several suc cessive years until 18S0, when he refused to write the New York state platform ad vocating a third term for President Grant. Friend of Blaine and Conkling. It was at this time that Mr- Smith Iip cainp a close friend both of James G. Blaine and Roscoe Conkling. At the time pf their quarrel lie took no sides, and suc ceeded in retaining the friendship of both. He once said that Conkling had many times, offered him his choice of political preferment in the shape of a scat in Con gress or a high place in the utate ad ministration. but that his interests were all wrapped up in the conduct of his news paper and he desired no office. TVhfn in 1876 Blaine tried to get the support of Mr. Smith and the Journal for his candidacy for t'. e presidency lie had to decline on the score of his party af filiations. which were at that time all with Conkling and the organic branch of the regular republican purty in the state. Be cause the strife between Blaine and Conkling made the position of the Jour nal somewhat precarious and because of. the inducement of superior opportunities. Mr. Smith decided in 1880 to accept the place of editor of the Philadelphia Press. The activity he had displayed in New York state polities and in national affairs ?he was a delegate to the national con vention in 1S7(T? gave Mr. Smith a promi nent political standing in Philadelphia. He became a delegate to the national republican convention in 1SS8. and had a large hand in the writing of the platform there adopted. He did not lose interest ind influence in New York politics dur ing tlie first ten years of his incumbency of the editorial chair on the Press. Goes to Czar's Couvt. In 1S90 Blaine brought his influence to bear upon President Harrisorf to select Mr. Smith to fill the pest of minister to Russia after the editor of the Press had hhnself gone to Washington to urge the ippointment of Presid'-nt Harris in of the University of Pennsylvania to the same nost. President Benjamft Harrison gave Mr. Smith the St. Petersburg mission, a ?position which he held for two years. Then he returned to take up his editorial work. In 1?>8 when Postmaster Genera! Gary resigned from President McKinley's cabi net the P-esident offered the portfolio to Mr. Smith and he accepted the offer. He resigned from the cabinet December 17. 1001. and within a few months he became involved in the post office scandil that centered about the names of George AY. Beavers i^nd A. W. Machen and the mdll pouch and patent letter box contracts. Postmaster Gene-al Payne who succeeded Mr. Smith, received a report from Sey mour W. Tullocli. who had been dismissa l ! from the position of cashier of the Wash- \ ington. D. C.. post office, charging Mr. i Smith with having suppressed an investi- ! eation into the affairs of First Assistant Postmaster General Perry Heath's office. This- drew an angry rep!v to Tulloch f-om the former he id of the Post office Department. It was not until the investi gation ordered by President Roosevelt Into the 'whole subject of alleged post of fice irregularities had been completed th ?t th? bitterness of charge and recrimina tion between the editor of the Press and some of the prominent people at Wash ington died down. After his retirement from the cabinet Mr. Smith led an active editorial life up to the time of his death. lie made /re quent appearances as a public speaker, and he was more than once a confiden tial visitor to the White House. Mr. Smith was twice married. His first wife, who waS'Ella Huntley of Albany, he married June UO. 186T5. She died at Block Island, R. I., August 10, 1900.
