PLAN MONSTER FUNERAL FOR
MISS EMILY WILDING DAVISON
Miss Emily Wilding Davison.
London, June 9. The first woman
to give her life to the cause of suf
frage was Miss Emily Wilding Dav
ison, who died late yesterday at Ep
som Cottage Hospital as a result of
the injuries she received when she at
tempted to grasp the bridle of the
king's horse in last week's derby.
At the headquarters of the Wo
men's Social and Political Union in
King's Way, the flag is at half mast
In honor of the dead woman. The
suffragets are planning for the biggest-funeral
that London ever saw,
not even excepting that of the late
King Edwaid VIL
It is their intention to make the
death of Miss Davison the most im
pressive object lesson Great Britain
has had for a generation, bringing
home to every man and woman in
the United Kingdom the realization
that the women's battle for ike ballot
Is a real revolution and not opera
bouffe and story book Warfare
The coffin of Miss Davison, lying
in the hospital, was covered with the
suffraget colors, white and yellow,
and a guard of militants surrounded
the building, all of them wearing
mourning bands about their sleeves.
It is possible that Home Secretary
McKenna may forbid a public fu
neral, and Scotland Yard is-waiting
instructions.
NINE OFFICIALS OF UNITED
MINEWORKERS INDICTED
Charleston, W.Va., June 9. Presi
dent John V. White and eight other
officials of the United Mineworkers
of America were indicted, charged
with conspiring with coal operators
to raise the wages in the West Vir
ginia fields so as to prevent the state
from competing with other coal fields
in the Western markets.
President John P. White, discus
sing the indictment, said: "It looks
to me like an attempt on the part of
the operators to divert public atten
tion from anything that may be
turned up by the Kern probe committee'."
FIRE WIPES OUT WHOLE BLOCK
AT SPRINGFIELD, MO.
Springfield, Mo., June 9. Fire

of the Heer Dry Goods Company's
store swept the entire northeast cor
ner of the square, entailing a loss es
timated at between $700,000 and $1,
000,000. This square obtained notoriety in
March, 1906, when a mob hanged
and burned three negroes at the
Goddess of Liberty tower on an
Easter Sunday morning.
o o
Actress Trixie Frigartza, who used,
to be Delia O'Callahan' of Cincinnati,
says she believes in reincarnation
and hopes that in her next existence
she'll be a cow, she's so fond of
salads.
