"Fellow -Citizens Ladles and Gentlemen: I participate In' this meeting this Sunday evening with mingled feel lugs of melancholy nnd pleasure melancholy because be whom we are here to honor has passed out of our sight In the march of that great pro-cession that makes no countermarch he has gone from among us but It Is a pleasurde anil u great pleasure to me to stand under the majestic columns of this great temple and attempt in som feeble way to do him Just merit "William Crawford Smith was a native of old Virginia born In the town of Petersburg He came to Nashville and Tennewe hefnre the smtes and when the civil war came and the Mother (of States and of statesmen drew Slowly and reluctantly her blade and summoned her son around her William C Smith true Virginian hurried back to his

more statelier than the stateliest character as lofty as the flight of eagles peerless and above compare heaven never Inherited from earth such another pair (Applause) WAS TWICK WOUNDED "William C Smith was wounded twice In the battles of Virginia he greatly distinguished himself at the terrible crest of the Crater for he led his regiment with the colors In his hand Into that hell of carnage and had them shot to splinters In his hand "When the clouds of war had drifted away nnd the long obscured sun of peace !egaii faintly to shine again he came back to Tennessee he married a noble Tennessee woman that I knew and she and he raised their rMldreB and he lived amongst us workit it his profession Intelligently laboriously hearing with him that splendid manner that seetrifv to come best from old Virginia of gentleness and courtesy Nashville has had no better citizen than William 0 Smith she has had no mora self-sacrificing public man than he He was a leader In the movement to celebrate the Centennial of your city more than twenty years ago and was the architect of her buildings he was the first man to mention In a meeting of the Southern Engineering Society the celebration of Tennessee's entrance Into the Union then near one hundred years ago and wher the exposition took upon Itself life enough to proceed our Director General a man born for his position thrilled the committee with a resolution that we should erect upon the soli of Tennessee and In sight of that great Greek temple our Capitol the Greek Parthenon a name to stir the artistic fibres of every man and every woman's heart (Applause) "The resolution was carried before the commit t e without a dissenting vote ARCHITECT OP PARTHENON "William C Smith was honored at being designated as the architect of the reDunatng of the Parthenon More than 2000 years had elapsed since that splendid building was dedicated to Athena the goddess of the Athenians It had been rebuilt nowhere else and In all the ages since architects and poets historians and travelers have testified universally that it was the most beautiful the most exquisite and the most finished edifice that had ever been upon the earth Col Smith had a gigantic task presented to him It may not be within the knowledge of some ill this audience and I will give them merely a superficial view a mere glance tbe story of its building which filled' W C Smith's heart and brain filled his blood with ardor filled his brain with genius that he might copy the greatest architect Ictinus this greatest of all classic buildings No man could have done It who had not tilled his soul with that great story "I will not detain you my fellow-cltlzens In the heat of this evening by any elaborate description of this building it would take me hours p do It and then I am Incompetent for the task To speak of it property a man would have to have genius and his lips would have to be touched with fire Four hundred and forty years before the birth of Christ this great building was commenced The great Athenian Pericles the greatest of the (reeks was ruling at Athens Athens was a city of about 40000 citizens She had many slaves but only 40000 citizens she became Immensely rich by the commerce of the seas and by seizing and plundering the treasures of others so thnt In the Perlclean age the golden age of Athens Pericles and Phidias the greatest sculptor the world ever saw agreed that now was the time to beautify and make forever memorable the city of Athens The architect of this wonderful building was a little hunchbacked Greek called Ictinus The sculptor who decorated it was the great Phidias the superintendent of the building was Calacrates SIXTEEN YEARS IN BUILDING "They were sixteen years my fellow-c'tlzeng In building this sublime temple they i ut the marble from Mt Pen-telicus and It may surprise some who have not had a chance to read up on the great story that there is 'not a straight line in this entire building The platform that the areeks called etylebeate on which I stand is curved These massive pillars are curved they rn lean to the Inward It is estimated that In rescuing five thousand feet In the air they would meet The pillars themselves are apart at Irregular distances Those jplendtd1 has reliefs you see above the cornice that are called metopes they ate Irregularly placed the coroHl of the pediment Is curved there is no pan of this great building that is not built in curves and built so delicate that the human eye cannot nicke the traeefjr without having it especially directed Now William C Smith knew and told me for many was the time In the deep hours of the hlght when he was working and studying on this great problem I went to his office and cheered 'Mm and he told me of his immense difficulties saying if I make a mistake in one i(in-gle delicate curve in that superb tem ple I will have marred Its beauty He bad 00 little task gcntlem n I I Ml MBum you More than a year he spent u that labor with his pencil These-splendid marbl block's were cut to fit those curves I will only take a second of your time to read the expression of a great professor of architecture Howard Crosby Butler In his book he has written on the story of Athens Speaking of the Parthenon he says : AN ARCHITECT S VIEW POINT " "There are no words In any language to describe the indefinable charm of Its faultless completeness There is a hnillty about Its perfect proportions which can not be explained but which leaves no doubt In the mind that this is of all buildings of man's hands the most nawless Not only are the proportions of height to breadth and length part to part the subject of devoted study but tne subtle theory of optics the difficult art of making things look as they should by making them what they should not look was applied In a hundred different ways to Impart suppleness and vigor to a style which would have been dead and flat without it There Is not a straight line In the whole structure' "Gentlemen after these sixteen years had passed away it takes but little stretch of the human Imagination to see that splendid procession of Greeks passing up to the Acropolis to devoutly worship the art of that great temple and the great goddess that stood there within It thousands and thousands yea hundreds of thousands assembled there from all parts of the Greek world the women in their classic dress and snooded hair the holy priests of Athens heading the procession with their sacred fire and their utensils of worship up they pass and up and still up until they passed through the gates of the Propylaea The propylaea only second in beauty and glory to the Parthenon Itself a gate and vestibule built of marble column after column portico after portico frieze after frieze until the mind swims with the Idea of that classic beauty all of it touched with the painter's brush that too was a genius glittering in marble and In gold and exaulslte coloring this great procession passed that Immortal gate no other gate like it will be ever seen unless It Is the gate through which the redeemed pass to eternal rest (Applause) I COST MILLIONS "That gateway alo"ne cost more than $2000000 This splendid temple cost over 1X0000000 In our money built by the little city of Athens You enter the Acropolis the Acropolis gentlemen was a rock ledge 1000 by 460 feet In superficial area It was first appropriated as a fortified place around It was built a splendid retaining wall but as the Athenians progressed In art and skill and the love of art they filled that great space with temples innumerable only second to this one On every piece of that ground marhlfj and bronze statuary of the very highest art stood and the procession marched into this splen-ded array of artistic beauty More art gentlemen and more beauty on that little rocky ledge than stands to-day on the whole surface of the earth (Applause) Such were the Athenians In their golden age and who was there that day? Pericles the prince of polltlclars orators and soldiers Aspnsla not his wedded wife because under the laws of Athens he could not wed a foreigner but his real wife the wife of his heart the wife of his brain who prompted his genius and stirred his ambitions with a brain as great ns his own the greatest and most peerless woman that ever trod the earth she was there Socrates the greatest of the Greek philosophers was there Sophocles the great dramatist was there Euripides was there the golden-souled the dreaming Plato he too was thtre the man who long before the birth of Christ out of his reason and his Imagination discovered the immortality of the soul Hundreds nnd hundreds of others great and living yet to-day In the memories of men were there there with their hearts full of the artistic scenes coupled with a otvotlon to the Goddess of Athens And gentlemen what did they see? Standing under the eve of this majestic temple crowded with others almost as great looking over into the blue Aegean Sea where her soft waves lapped the Attic shore they saw the Culf of Salamls great In the history of freedom and the Greeks where the Persian fleets were overcome OVERLOOKED MARATHON "Out a little to the left they saw the sacred field of Marathon over further to the right was the Corinthian (iulf Itself a dramatic theater of Athens glory All that could Inspire all that could charm all that could elevate of greatness or of glory was there The fields of Attica blossoming In the olive trees were there The classic mountains at her back covered with that violet tone that gue Athens her nomenclature were there The Athenian fleet at the Piraeus with her oars banked and her sails all decked was In full view Mortal man never stood on such a mount and gazed on such a sight before or since (Applause) "Gentlemen I give you some small Idea of how those Athenians hullded when I tell you that In the little city of 40000 citizens there was more money spent on art on pure art on that little space upon the Acropolis tlian all the taxable values of the city of Nashville put together "They spent forty millions building up the glory of Athens on the Acropolis and that was not half of it As far as the eye could reach through the Athenian Agorn among the plane trees and among the groves of the Academy the marble statues gleamed and the bronze statues glistened everywhere you turned your eye There never lived there never will live there never can live on this earth a people like that again "Now gentlemen that is a feeble outline of Athens and her glory and her chief glory Mark you there weie 1100 statues of marble around this building and on this building Everyone of them from the hand of genius 500 feet of marble frieze went around the Inter wall the Greeks called the cella called the Panathenanlc frieze representing the great procession that I have alluded to before On the eastern end of this building Pericles and Phidias bad groups of the gods representing the birth of Athena the goddess of the Athenians she sprang full armed on Mt Olympus from the brain of Jove in the presence of the assembled gods and they were marble (in this end was what you see Athena and Poseidon or Neptune In the Latin contesting for the possession of Attica Poseidon offered them a horse and Athena struck the Acropolis rock and out from it came the olive tree They awarded the possession of Attici to the daughter of Jove the great Athena She typified the Athenian mind she was the Goddess of Wisdom she was the Goddess of Art she was also the Goddess t War She sym-Imliaed and typified intellect of its highest order and learning and In that : he was properly and naturally woi-shiped by the Athenian people COL SMITH'S UNDERTAKING "Now gentlemen Col Smith had more than I have told you In his mind when he started an architect himself to copy a building built more than -ace y ais ago bv tie gn-a St Of all artists Verse by verse line by line word by word aye letter by letter be copied that great marble poem Into what you see (Applause) Nashville if she has not done It before will come to it some time and in our heart of hearts when our culture becomes great When our love of the beautiful grows In the times to come like It did in Athens she will thank William I Smith more devoutly than any other man that has lived in our midst (Ap plause) If she gets to love the beautiful If she gets to love the noble she will get her Inspiration from this splendid building Our I'ark Cmmwsloneis wisely greatly have determined that this building shall not perish that It shall be restored and I tell you that the day will come when the people of Nashville will make It out of marble and will say It shall have eternal life (Applause) "OUr splendid hills around here that the Athenians would have covered with glorious temples are naked yet Some day they will be clothed with splendid buildings of art This Is the education of Nashville and I tell you when William C Smith built this temple he made this the Athens of the South (Applause) "I remember one night If you gentlemen will bear with me It Ib very warm but the subject I am a little fond of when this building was about completed I was out here one evening with Col Smith as I very often was and we walked all around It he had rend Its great story arid I had done so too and when the shades of night began to appear and the few people that were here had gone away I said to him "Colonel let us stay until the full moon rises let us see the moon of Attica rise once more above the cornice of the Parthenon" He agreed to It we stood over on the western side and the moon came from over here The sky became lighter and lighter as the great luminary ap-rroached Its zenith and presently over the top of it the full moon came and looked down on this splendid temple produced for the second time I took him by the hand and I said 'Col Smith you have rebullded the Parthenon the only man in more than two thousand years you have made yourself Immortal you have built yourself an everlasting monument arid I salute thee" and I called him William Calcrates Smith (Applause) No man was prouder when he was done of the perfect excellence of this work modest withal HONORING HIS MEMORY "I had the honor to Introduce a resolution before the Executive Committee to place his name upon the western end of the Parthenon and It was there until some degenerate vandal broke It off And here we are to-day representing the people of this community in honor to him to place perpetually that tab-lature upon this Immortal building which he bullded Why gentlemen It stood on thst crowded Acropolis amid all that splendid beauty you cannot compare it to anything else except the beauty that crowds a woman's perfect face on a small area Splendid brow dark luminous eyes thin fine sensitive nose rich classic and yet voluptuous mouth with swelling throat and chin and each one feature a beauty and all upon a space of a few Inches So upon thi splendid height this made one of hundreds of beautiful buildings s splendid story that was the story that he read that was the story that fired his blood and Inspired his Imagination and made him a workman so capable that he copied correctly the work of the great Ictinus "Gentlemen I depart I confess It with reluctance from the discussion of this building This is Col W C Smith's monument (Applause) I spoke more prcphetlcally than I thought The next year In 1898 this gallant old soldier headed the First Tennessee Regiment for a foreign land I know of no man who led so varied sc romantic a career as William C Smith A gtillant soldier of the Army of Northern irglnla architect of the Parthenon leader of the First Tennessee the only Tennessee and the only-Southern Regiment In that foreign land of the Philippines and when the day (Continued on
