Smith Has Won Success. BELIEVES IN RAGE UPLIFT. Many Sided Life of a Kentuckian Who Worked Hi* Way From Humble Sur rounding* to Positions of Honor and Responsibility—Public School Teach er, Tax Collector and Politician. New Orleans. La.—Entering life just at the close of the war and using us his guide industry, honesty, thrift and re liability, A. O. Smith has pushed his way to the front and now ranks as one of the foremost and best known men of the race in this section of the coun try. lie is directly connected with many enterprises for the development and uplift of the race. Mr. Smith was born in the hills of Kentucky fifty years ago, his mother being left a widow with seven children to develop into .manhood and woman hood, be being the youngest. As soon ns he was old enough he was placed in school, where he made rapid progress in his studies. Just how much time was spent in school is not known. Teaching school was to-him a high position, yet he decided that he wanted to be of more service to his people; hence he found Ids way into lowa and soon became well known. He took part in politics, believing that it was the avenue through which to help his people. Step by step be advanced nud was recognized for his worth. During the deadlock in the legislature of 1888 be was chief doorkeeper, and so well did he discharge his duty that at the close he was rewarded by the body and holds today many testimonials from the men who made up the legis lature. In Des Moines, la., he was recog nized for service rendered and made assistant tax collector, which was up HON. ▲. O. SMITH. to that time the highest position ever held by n member of the race in Hint section of the country. It was a posi tion of honor and trust, which he filled well, making many friends both in the city and out. Ilis best recommenda tion was his word, for when he told a man a thing was going to be done it could be relied upon, and this went long toward tuuking him n place in the world. In 1804 he conceived the Idea that he could be of more service to his people in another section of the country where he could perhaps better serve tlielr needs, hence he plunged right into the south, going to make good. He did not come to Idle away his time and. not finding what he desired at the time, he went Into the railroad service as a por ter. which position he held for three years, then later Into the hotel busi ness. making a success of it and at the same time taking hold of everything that meant the uplift of his race. He Is proprietor of the Chicago hotel in this city. Mr. Smith has some very original and practical ideas on how to conduct large business enterprises which will afford an opportunity to the public to secure more profitable employment. He is working on plans now for several lines of business which he hopes may prove of value to the race in several of the larger cities of the country when put Into effect. He is widely known In the smith and west and has many friends among the foremost white men In public and private life. In speaking of his plans Mr. Smith said: “I consider that If the colored people of the United States and the countries sduth of us are to be anything they must do something. They must not ex pect to sit down and have others do foi them what they should do for them selves. "We are turning out from our schools and colleges every year thousands of boys and glrlß, and if they are to have something to do it is up to us to make places for them. With 10,000,000 peo ple all spending money, they can de mnnd more recognition by uniting, making places, and this will cause oth ers to. seek them, and the stores that now close their doors to negroes will seek them for the money they spend.** • » MRS.
