Ixjndon Jan .7 The furj of the suf
fragettes to night over the death of the
franchise bill, knows no bounds. Within
a lew minutes of Premier Asqutth's an
nouncement, made to an excited House
of Commons that the measure would be
withdrawn owing to the amendment pro
posing woman sunrage, cunstltutllng
new bill, Mrs l'ankhurst rounded up her
most prominent supporters, including
auss i&eue Emerson, of Uetrolt. Mich ,
and declared that there would be an im
mediate resumption of hostilities.
"We are guenillsts." she said, "and we
are fighting as Garibaldi fought in the
Italian war for freedom "
To-night tho west end of London pre
sents a unique spectacle Policemen are
everywhere, and every piece of glass
worth Lraklng Is boarded up. As soon
as the word went round that the bill had
been killed, carpenters were hurriedly
sent for, and the noise of thousands of
hammers eloquently told the story of the
panic that has seized London.
ThrnnvT Monr nt 1'alntltis;.
The suffragists convened meetings
evcrj where, and, the word 'betrayal'
was In every woman's mduth In Tra
falgar Square fully 5 000 women assem
bled, headed bj Mrs. Dcspard and Sjlvla
Pankhurst During a struggle, Mrs.
Despard was arrested, and was only got

of excited women Sjlvla got away In
the excitement, but later inside of St.
Stephens Hall. Westminster, she threw
a stone at one of the valuable pictures
there and was capturd after an excitnlg
sturggle
Another woman, who gavo her name as
Lady Crewe, was arrested In the West
End for disorderlj conduct, but she is
not believed to be the wife of Lord
Crewe, as It Is understood that the suf
fragette planned that woman who should
be arrested to-night should give the
names of Cabinet Ministers wives.
As a rclut of the meeting to-night tha
suffragettes promise a new outrage which
will "make life Impossible for every
one."

the farmer in Ireland, President Taft
took occasion to give expression ot his
view of what constitutes a "real pro
gressive" President Taft said.
One sometimes gets tired of the uso
of tho word progressive bj persons who
make no progress," said he. ' but it's a
plcasurn to welcome to our country
man like Sir Horace Plunkctt a real
progressive, a man who has done so
much for the progress of his people in
the agricultural pursuits." Tho President
wild the necessltj of a better credit for
farmers has greatly Interested him. and
he Isjmpressed with the possibilities of
it from the results that have been at
tained In other countries.
President Taft was Introduced by Sen
ator uuncan u. lelcher. president of the
Southern Commerlcal Congress, who pre
sided, and who in his opening speech
reviewed the hlstorj of the American
farmer, and the movement to organize
co-operative methods among- the farm
ing Interests similar to those In Germany,
France. Italj, Ireland, and other Euro
pean countries.
Slr'Horaco said in part.
"What is It which has brought tho
condition of jour agriculture Into a
foremot position among the qeustlons
of the day? I think the answer is
plain The farm lands of the United
Slates are not producing 'anything;
like the amount of .food which, the rap
Idly Increasing population of the coun
try demands. The best experts are
unanimous that the jield per acre
might be enormously increased with
out any serious dlfficultj.
I nsplte of all advantages, the actual
amountt of food produced has not In
creased nearlj as rapidly as the popula
tion of the country, and it Is abundantly
evident that for some cause or other the
farmer Is not rising to hU opportunities.
It looks as It, had prices remained sta
tionary during 'the last ten learsv the
farmers would have been bankrupt, and
It is qulte'certaln that unless some great
change comes over 'the condition! of the
Industry the nation win be hard 'set to

he concluded a speech in which he urged

an independent government. Delegate
Quezon, who Is a dapper little man. and
a typical Filipino in appearance, was
given an ovation as he rose to speak.
From the beginning the Democrats
showed tueir sj-mpathies were with, th-i
Filipino deVgate- a -i
Mr. Quezon referred it the outset to
recent'reports concerning uprisings in the
Philippines and that Agulnaldo and other
Filipinos are getting readjr to revolt.
Mr. Quezon charged that these reports
wero Inspired by persons opposed to
Philippine Independence.
'Thej are printed dallj throughout the
United States." said Mr. Quezon, "ap
parentlj' with the purpose of Impressing
the American people with the fact that
because the Democratic party Is pledged
to give the Filipinos independence there
will be a revolution in the islands"
Fitted for "elf-government.
Mr. Quezon admitted that the Moros
were troublesome at times, but he in
sisted that quiet prevailed generally
throughout the archipelago, and that his
countrvmen were fitted for self-government
Addressing the Democrats. Dele
gate Quezon said:
' In spite of the fact, I say, that we
are being told that j-our party platforms
mean nothing, we have a different con
ception of the great political parties of
the United States We believe that
those parties stand by what they sav
to their people and to out people. We
cannot believe that your national plat
form is meaningless. vSe believe that
thej are the omclal and responsible
statements to the American people and
to the world of what the party that is
coming into power Is going to do
Mr Quezon said that tne lrnipmos
were not looking for more trouble. They
tlred long ago of fighting American
troops. "We have learned from sad ex
perience what It means to fight the
American troops. W have lost thou
sands and thousands ot lives and there
r-ave been destrojed millions and mil
lions of dollars worth of our property."
Representative Sherwood of Ohio In
terrupted to ask: how many lives had
been lost In the Filipino insurrection.
"Well." replied Mr. Quezon, "according
to a newspaper report attributed to Gen.
Bell, the present commanding general ot
the Philippines, in the Island of Luzon
alone tmoco men. women and cnlldren
were killed during the war or died as a
result thereof."
"You understand, of course, that In
killing your people we did It for their
good?" suggested Representative "Dies ot

Mr Quezon said he did not care to
discuss the revolution

"1 want to say right here and now to
tho American peoplo that the Filipinos
are not preparing for revolt," continued
Mr. Quezon "They have faith, in the
sense of Justice ot the American people,
and they expect to get from tho gerf
erosity of the American people their
freedom and Independence. Tbey will
never fight the United States. ! hope
that If the Filipinos ever go to war.
they will go to war In support of the
