Goldman Sneers at Sorrow

     Chicago, Sept. 19.—Memorial services were held in the woman’s ward of the jail. Emma Goldman was there, though not of her own volition and while many prisoners manifested great grief she was unmoved and indifferent. When “Nearer, My God, to Thee” was sung Goldman turned her back upon the singers and busied herself with a book she carried.
     The anarchists who are being held on the charge of complicity in the president’s assassination were offered an opportunity to participate in the memorial exercises in the jail, but all refused.
