New Yokk, XoV. 10 Services to the
memory of Charles Stewart P.irnell were
held Inst nisht in the Academy of Music,
and Hon. Cbanncey XI. Depew was the eu
Ingist. There was hardly a prominent
Irishman in the city who was not pres
ent, and many Americans were scattered
about the vast assemblage. Delegations
from the Polish societies or New York
wre also in attendance, while Irishmen
from Philadelphia, Boston, Xew Haven,
Bridgeport nnd other near-by cities paid
tribute by their presence. Perhaps the
most prominent auditor of Mr. Depew's
eilogy was Governor-Klect McKinley, of
Ohio. He was accompanied by his wife,
and occupied a box. In the auditorium
cauld be seen Diaoy more persons whose
names are uotable in law, politics, litera
ture and the pulpit.
Decorations of the Hall.
All the Irish and G:ielic societies were
well represented iu the audience. The
theatre was draped with the stars and
stripes, over which in heavy folds fell
loops of purple. To the right of the stae
was a l:irge portrait of the dead leader,
resting against a Inre Gaelic cross
wreathed with ivy. At the base of the
portrait were two wreaths, one of sham
rock, moss, and ivy, the other of laurel.
The first of these was presented to the
Parnell memorial committee by Mrs.
. Margaret Horgan, wife of the mayor of
Cork. The ivy of which it was partly
composed was gathered at a spot in
Glasnevin cemetery near O'Cunnell's
monument. The moss was taken from
the crave of Parnell and the shamrock
plucked from the hilU of Cork. Tne sec
ond wreath was a present from the Polish
societies. It was bound with the Polish
colors and bad this inscription: "Poland
mourns with Ireland."
Silver-Tongaed Chauncey Speak.
By 8 o'clock the bouse was packed. The
- services opened with preliminary musical
exercises. Then amid cheers the orator
of the evening arrived. He w-n intro
duced by the chairman. Judge Henry A,
Giidersleeve, and spoke iu part as fol
"We are here to pay tribute to the mem
ory of a man who made an indelible im
press upon the times and performed in
calculable services for his conntry. But
we have not met to disenss or settle the
party differences of the hour. It is our
purpose to recognize and gracefully re
member the wisdom, the oatnotic cour
age and the Rtiperb generalship with
which Charles Stewart Parnell organized
and led his countrymen to within sight of
the promised land of self-government.
The historian of this period cannot write
the chronicles of Germany without Bis
marck, of France without Gamstta, of
Italy without Cavour and Garibaldi, of
Ireland without Parnell.
The Subject of Enlocry.
Mr. Depew sketched the work Parnell
did for Ireland, his characteristics, and
bis methods, the effective one being the
obstruction of business in parliament an
der its own rules until be got
what he wanted, forced the people
who put him in Kilmainham jail
to dome to him and ask him on
what terms he would consent to be
released, and drove out of office "Shot
gun" Forster. Mr. Depew particularly
emphasized t he fact that in his campaign
for justice to Ireland Parnell went en
tirely by constitutional roads, seeing that
force and plots were of no avail, and when
he died the victory was practically won.
Slid tbe speaker: Tue lesson of Par
cell's life is the superiority of constitu
, tion.il over revolutionary methods. He
demonstrated that nothing is impossible
for Ireland in tbe imperial parliament.
Comparison with Other Great Men.
"Gambetta moulded a republic out of
chaos, but his foes were scattered, humil
iated, aud the vast majority of his coun
trymen were supporting him. Cavour
brought together the warring principali
ties of Italy, and created Italian national
ity, but he was leading a people of one
race and creed to the fulfillment of tbe
dream of centuries, Bismarck touched
the springs of Teutonic patriotism, and
confederated the German empire, but
his mighty band gathered tbe
cords of nnity which had been
long waiting the grasp of a master. It
, was Parnell's task and fame that he
' .brought together 4.000,000 of his country
j 'men who had been for generations torn
by bitter feuds among themselves, and
then converted the 80,000,000 of alien race
and faith la the confederate states of tbe
empire to see the justice of his course, and
join in demauding of the imperial parlia
ment! bat Ireland should be granted for
her domestic affairs self government and
The Speech Loudly Applauded.
' Kinging cheers and applause followed
the masterly eulogy of Mr. Depew. The
musical exercises were then resumed, the
(tern of which was perhaps the singing of
v "It Is .Not Tear at This Moment Shed,"
with harp accompaniment, by Miss Inez
Uarusi. Letters of regret were read from
cx-President Cleveland and Henry Wnt
terson, which concluded the services.
Davitt Beads Warning Note. .

w,rUen a letter fur publication in which
be strongly objects to the abusive refer
ences made by tbe Ilealys and other anti
ParneUltes to Mrs. Parnell , Ha
that these attacks upon Mr. Parnell's
widow will in no way serve the caue of
Ireland, ami he nuiimW them that in the
United states there is a keen feeling of
indiDHtioi and regret at the billingsgate

Cadet Clara Bledler Shoot Captain Hat-

Ballet Into Her Own Brain The Crime
Committed on the etreets at Omaha
The Cause Somewhat of a Mystery, but
Believed To lie Jealousy.
Omaha, Nov. 16. About 6 o'clock last
evening Cadet Clara Bledler, of tbe local
corps of the Salvation Army, met Cap
tain Hat tie Smith, of Clinton, la., at tbe
barracks and tried to open a conversation
with her. Tbe Smith woman is engaged
to Lieutenant Berry, of Boone, la., and
imagiued that the Bie Her woman was
trying to steal him from her. She re
fused to talk, when the Biedler woman
drew a revolver and shot Miss Soiith
through the right lung, firing three shots
at her. The Smith woman ran a block
before she fell mortally wounded.
The Meeting Went ltight Along.
Seeing that she bad probably killed her
rival. Cadet Biedler turned the revolver on
herself, blomug out her own brains. Mis
Sprague, of Omaha, another Salvationist,
was so overcome by tbe sight that she be
came paralyzed, and her death is expected.
The body of Nettie Biedler, the murderess
and suicide, rests on a marble slab at the
undertaker rooms, and her victim. Cap
tain Jlattie Smith, of the Salvatiou Army
band at Oskaloosa, is awaiting death at
her temporary boarding place, 1512 Daven
Moth Partic Away from Home.
The half-crazed woniau at whose door
rests the responsibility for the taking of
the two human lives was an ironer at the
City Steam laundry at Council Bluffs, and
her victim was formerly stationed there
in command of tbe Biclf-i barracks of the
crusading soldiers. It, was there that tbe
event occurred that culminated in last
night's tragedy. Both of the parties were
here, away from home, and practically
among strangers, so information as to
their previous relations was very meagte.
Went to Meet the Marechale.
Captain Smith, who was ordered to
leave the Bluffs some thirty days ao to
take command of the branch of the Army
stationed at Oskaloosa, came to Omaha last
Thursday from the latter city witbilrht
of her soldiers to participate in tha recep
tion and demonstration iu houor of the
visit of La Marechale Booth Clibborn aud
Marshal Ballingtou Booth. She was
present- Saturday afternoon at the Army
barracks on Davenport street, between
Seventeenth and K ghtenth, at a meet
ing held at 3:30 o'clock, and the Beidler
woman seems to have also been there, but
whet her she was there during the entire
meeting is no:, known, as no une noticed
her until tbe close of t he service.
The Mj-jttertous Interview.
At that time she was iu tbe rear por
tion of the ct.urcu and sent up word to
Captain Smit h that she wanted to talk to
her. '1 he latter replied to tbe messenger
that she was busy then and could not
grant the n quest, but after eating lunch
she went back and talked to tbe Biedler
woman for some time. What was said by
either of them is unknown, as the only
person who noticed what was going on
was Lieutenant Mary Bannister,of What
Cheer, who bad carried Miss BiedJer's
message to Captain Smith. When inter
rogated after the shooting Lieutenant
Bannister stated that she saw the captain
go back and engage in conversation with
the woman, but was so far sway that she
cou'.d tell not hing about what was said.
THE DESPERATE WOMAN'S DEED.
Follon-a Her Victim and Shoot Her In
the Back at Close Kane
Whatever was said. Captain Smith
pushed past her murderess and went on
down the street with a friend. The Bied
ler woman passed out shortly afterward.
and, hurrying forward, overtook the
other two a short distance east on the op
posite side of the street, just across from
tbe falace stables at Seventeenth and
Davenport. She drew a revolver from the
folds of her dress and, leveling it full at
Captain Smith's bock, pulled tbe
trigger. The range was so close
that tbe bullet could not iris, and the
piercing screams of tbe wounded wounan
were borne out upon the niht wind al
most simultaneously with the crack of the
revolver. Thecapiain and her companion
started to run, shrieking as tbey went.
and the determined mmderess, apparently
fearing that her bullet had not found a
fatal mark, pursued them a few steps, and
then halting, sent another shot hurtling
alter ner intended victim.
Idem- Her Own Brain Out.
The murderess paused only au instant.
Placing the weapon at her temple she
pressed the trigger a third time, and as
the bullet crashed through her brain
plunged forward into tbe gutter.

magic, and before it was fully known
what had taken place tbe Beidler woman
was carried into the office of the Palace
stables, where she died in a few moments.

The Wounded Woman Talk.
Captain Smi'h was removed from the
drug store, whither she Was first taken,
to her boardiug place at 1513 Davenport
street. The wounded woman suffered in
tensely, but was perfectly conscious and
talked rationally. In reply to the re
porter's questions she stated that she
had not seen "Nettie" for several
weeks until that afternoon, but that
she knew her very well. Wheo asked
why the woman shot her. she answered:
"It was a case of jealonsy."
"Why was she jealous? Was there a
