When peace was restored Col.
Smith, like many ot the boys who
had fought bravely and gallantly for
the lost cause, under the stars and
bara of the Southern Confederacy,
returned home, not mid the cheers
and plaudits an admiring populace
would give the returning of the con
quering hero, but came back as a
ragged and worn soldier." He camo
back poor and defeated but not un
daunted nor discouraged. His home
was gone, he had been stripped of
all his worldly possessions; yet with
that Indomitable spirit that had
prompted him to lake up arms for
his native south he entered upon
the duties of private life with
a determination born of success. He
completed his law studies, graduat
ing from the Cumberland university,
and began the practice of his pro
fession in Nashville, where he soon
attained rank at the bar.
During his legal career he was as
sociated as a partner with tha late
Col. Ed Baxter, Judge A. J. Allison
and Percy D. Maddln as general
practitioner and district counsel for
the Louisville & Nashville railroad.
Ae a lawyer, Col. Smith became as
eminent as he had been a brave sol
dier and commander, and for years
he enjoyed a most lucrative practice,
accumulating not only fame but
Later he met with financial re
verses, and finally in the evening of
his life, when the shadows began to
lengthen, he was appointed secre
tary of the Chattanooga and Chlck
amauga National Park commis
sion by his life-long friend and
brother lawyer, Judge J. M. Dick
inson, then secretary of war un
der President Taft, a position he
held up to the hour ot his death.
Though infirm and with broken
health Col- Smith continued to dis
charge the duties of this office with
faithfulness and efficiency, only lay
ing down these when forced to take
to his bed because of the weight of
advancing years and feeble health.
Col. Smith was a member of the
state senate from Davidson county
In 1881, and here again the man's
brilliant attainments and his capac
ity as a leader placed him In the
frint ranks of that body.
Col. Smith came of a distinguished
neestry. and he inherited the In
domitable spirit of his race and the
charm of. his southern paren'-ge,
hich gave him that charm of per-
onallty which drew ariund him a
arge circle of friends who will unite
shedding tears over the bier of
this good man and useful citizen.

In starting off with the support
generally of Justlcea of the peace, the
movement for a constitutional con
vtntlon has an assurance of success
which previous movements 'have not
had. Dissatisfaction which has here
tofore been expressed with the coun
ty court Jed . many magistrates to
fear that abolition of the entire sys
tem was contemplated, hence their
opposition. It Is probable, however,
that most advocates of a new con
stitutlon favored the retention of
some such body as the county court
though perhaps with its Jurisdiction
more clearly defined and with .re
vised regulations to govern the se
lection of its members.
It is the opinion of Col. J. H. Ack-
len and others that the county court
in principle might find Its great
est usefulness under a new constl
tutlon in providing; a forum for the
consideration of - local legislation,
which has become' more or less a
scandal in our general assemply.
Relieving the legislature In this
manner would be highly beneficial In
two ways: It would enable the leg.
Islature to concentrate Its energies
upon and give more careful consld
eration to general legislation. It
would also bring the determination
of local legislative problems within
the atmosphere of the communities
affected. It ought thus to pfove a
great simplifying process all around.
The, reform herein indicated is a
very real reform. All admit Its
need. But It Is only one. There are
numerous others of equal or greater
Importance which have to wait upon
constitutional revision for their con
summation. These are economic as
well as institutional. Under a new
constitution it would be possible to
simplify and make more efficient
many of our governmental processes.
Before the time arrives for voting
on the proposition nextf September
it Is believed that the people gen
erally will realize, along with the
magistrates, that their best Interest
lies in the direction of the adoption
of a modern constitution.
vocably made when we entered the
war. Once involved in that struggle
tnere was never again to be any iso
lation possible for the United States.
As the president had said in his
speeches, even before we entered the
struggle, neutrality in any future
conflict wag Impossible. Vhether or
not we now enter the league of na
tions, we must go forward conscious
that we have obligations to the world.
The Springfield-Republican thinks
the allied powers would not be ill
pleased if the vessels at Scapa Flow
should be found to be lost beyond re
covery. If the battleships should be
too ponderous to raise It cannot be
said that the world would suffer. The
existing fleets amply suffice, and the
destruction "of the navy which has
cost Germany so dear would , be
merely a drastlo measure for the re
duction of armaments.
The British explain the failure to
guard the vessels by saying that
they were Interned and not surren
dered. This is a new point of view.
However, It will be remembered that
under the armistice agreement, there
was provision that the ships should
be Interned either In neutral harbors
or If those were not available, in al
lied harbors.
Tha sinking of the fleet Is a long
step toward naval disarmament. It
has probably saved the allies some
sharp discussions over the division of
the vessels. To take them out to sea
and sink them1 would have been dlf
flcult to agree on.
