per 1,000, as against 1,635 deaths, with

Reginald McKenna, nfter deliberating

Mrs. Pankhurst was courteously es
corted to the automobile and the super
intendents obligingly offered to convey
her companion. Miss Annie Kenney, an
other prominent militant, to the Pa
vilion Music Hall, where she .was
scheduled to deliver an address nt" a
suffrage meeting and denounce the ar
rest of the leader of the women.
Miss Kenney was dropped off at her
destination and then the automobile
with Mrs. Pankhurst went to Hcotlnnd
Yard, On arrival there tea was served
at the expense of the' taxpayers and
tlie prisoner was greeted by a lievy of
friends, Including her lawyer.
After this there wns a pleasant drive
to Leatherhead. where the officials taxed
all the means nt their disposal to make
special room for her and to make her
surroundings as comfortable as possible.
Mrs. Pankhurst -will be arraigned for
a hearing to-morrow In the Epsom
pcourt, whose Jurisdiction covers Walton
Heath, and charged with having "felon
iously, unlawfully and maliciously
counselled and procured certain per
sons" to place explosives In a building
with intent to cnutm danger.
It Is not known whether the Govern
ment has any evidence as to Mrs. Pank
hurst's complicity In tho bomb explosion
beyond her own declaration of culpabil
ity. If It has not the prosecution
may fall. It Is expected, howevr,
that the first day's proceedings will be
merely n formal demand for a remand,
'and that this will be granted.
No matter what may happen In this
or other courts there Is no doubt but
flint the farce will follow the usual
course, airs, ranknurst win start a
hunger strike, will become ill nnd -will
be allowed to go free.
While Mrs. Pankhurst was automo
blllng to Leatherhead under tho escort
of two ofllclals of Scotland Ynrd Miss
Kenney was trying to tell the audience
at the Pavilion Music Hull all about
what hnd happened, but as admission
to the hall was unrestricted she en
countered great dlftlculty, owing to the
presenco of enemies of the "cause" nnd
her remarks could not be heard. There
wns a great 'hubbub. There was one
persistent antl-suffraglst whose concen
trated efforts at Interruption attracted
the stewardesses, and their efforts to
throw him out entertained the onlook
ers. Eventually a horde of women fell
upon this man, who was only saved
from tho fate of Orpheus when other
men came to his rescue.

were confined to pouring acids and paint
In maf! boxes. However, John Burns,
the president of the Local Government
Board, who began a series of meetings
lu his constituency In connection with
the elections to the London County
Council, was continually Interrupted by
suffragettes. Mr. Burns ordered the
women removed and said he meant to
do all he could to break down what he
called "this organized blackguardism"

MKX1C0 CITY IS QCIET
People Seem Disposed to
to Iron liule of the
Mi:.xico City, Feb. 24. The Govern
ment Issued to-day a further explana
tion of the circumstances of the kilting
of Francisco 1. Mndero nnd Jose Pino
Suarez. The new statement was un
doubtedly prompted by the discovery
that the ex-President and ex-Vlce-Presl-dent
were shot to death In the rear of
the penitentiary, not In the Calle Le
cumberrl, at some distance from the
Gen. Huerta nnd his advisers sny
now thnt two nttneks were made by
Maderlstas and that after Major Juan
Cardenas of the Seventh Kurales and
his men hnd rushed Mndero and Suarez
past the tlrst band of attackers they
were ngaln fired on by a band tlmt had
taken a position behind the peniten
tiary. It was In the second encounter,
the Government explains, that Madero
and Suarez uttetnpted to break away
from the rurales and lo escape to their
ollcs KseaaiiKrd In .Mrrrl.
When the two automobiles conveying
tlie prisoners and the guard had
reached the Intersection of the Calle
Lec.umberrl and the Avenldo de la
Bolsa Ave armed men sprang In front
of the motor cars nnd demanded the
surrender of Madero and Suarez. Major
Cardenns ordered the rurales to fire.
Volleys were exchanged and some of the
attacking party were wounded, al
though the prisoners werenot hit. The
automobiles were speeded through the
attackers and were driven to the rear
of the penitentiary.
There another force of rescuers
opened lire on the automobiles and
Madero and Suarez sprang to the
ground and attempted to escape. At
least thirty men were shooting toward
the guards and prisoners and It Is Im
possible, the Government says, to de
termine whether Madero and Suarez
were slain by their friends or by the
return tire of Cnrdenas's men.
The supplemental statement was Is
sued by the Government after an all
night conference between President
Huerta and his Cabinet. Tho people,
while suspecting thnt It was never in
tended to let Mndero nnd Suarez reach
the penitentiary, are disposed to accept
Bin Government's statements.

At the same time, In fulfilment of his
