(Copyrtpht, 1912, by the United Preti
TiNnoN, April 27. Just what treat
ment the suffragettes who were con
victed of rioting nt the time of the
great demonstration of the militant
element In London In February and
March have received at the hands of
the llrltish prison officers In charge nf
the Hollow-ay Jail was .told to-day by
Miss Alice M. Wright, ono of their
number. Miss Wright Is the daughter
of a merchant of Albany, N. Y., and la
a graduate of Smith College- For
a time -hc studied art In Paris.
Miss Wright went flom Paris to Lon
don to take rart In the demonstration
which resulted In wholesale window
breaking. Then followed the arrest of
moro than one hundred suffragettes, In
cluding Mrs. Kmmeltne Pankhurst,
Frederick Pethlck Lawrence and Mrs.
Lawrence. Joint editors uf Voir for
Women, who arc now being prosecuted
on a conspiracy charge. Miss Wright
was convicted c' disturbing the peace
and served nearly all of a two months'
sentence. She was released on Thurs
day. The following Is her account of
her experiences:
"During the entire time that I was In
Holloway Prison I was refused all per
mission to communicate with any one
outside of the Jail. It was not until
April 19 that I was finally allowed to
write to my mother, and even then t
was compelled to keep that letter for
mailing until I was released from
prison on Thursday.
"While 1 wes working at my profes
sion In Paris on March 2 I read that
the militant suffragettes In London
were breaking windows In order to em
phasize their displeasure over the
shameful way In which the Premier and
his Ministers had violated their duties
and had refused even to permit Parlia
ment to consider the question of equal
suffrage. Desiring to take part In the
movement. I hurried to London and vol
unteered my servlcei.. My motives arc
easily explained. 1 simply desired to
share In the protest against the dishon
orable treatment of the women's de
mands. Our cause Is not merely na
tional; It Is universal.
"We commenced our rotest In
merlca against 'taxation without
representation' with tea, and therefore
it seemed reasonable for us to commence
with glass In Kngland. On March 4,
accompanied by two suffragette com
panions, who were armed with hammers
and stones, I went to the Kensington
post office. They broke the windows
"Although 1 had a stone, I did not use
it, merely carrying It as an evidence of
my protest against existing conditions.
1 did not wish personally to destroy
British property, as I am not a British
"After being arraigned In court and
sentenced, I, with eighteen others, wan
conveyed to Holloway in the 'black
marla,' the prison van. Kn route we
sang the 'Voles for Women' song set to
the 'Marseillaise.'
"After the entrance preliminaries we
were hurried Into cells. We communi
cated with our fellow suffragettes by
means of brown paper megaphones
through the window- gratings. In ac
cordance with a prearranged plan for
tho first week I did only the briefest
dally exercise and refused either to nt
tend chapel ot to work, and no real
effort was made lo have us do any
thing. "Later I, with others, did some light
work, such ns hewing and knlllliiL-.
and thereby 1 earned the romlsisUm in
one-sixth of my sentence.
"1 made an American flag from a
handkerchief, getting the red sniping
by using dye from a book cover und the
blue field from portions of my clothing,
I placed only six stars in the corner,
Instead of the usual forty-eight, or one
each for the siiftrage Slates of t'lali,
Colorado. Wyoming, Idaho, Washing
ton and California. Cnfortunately, one
of the wardresses saw It and confiscated
"The prison discipline was reason
able, the officers for the most part act
ing In n considerate manner as far as
they could In consideration of their
duties, Naturally, there ore prison
rules Imposed by a tyrannical (Invent
mcnt lhat cannot be set aside by the
"Hut in many cases they winked at
the hard labor clauses In certain sen
tences and also made no protest against
suffragettes who were able to purchase
food from the outside sharing that
food with their fellows who had been
condemned to rigid ptlson discipline of
hard labor and the prison fare. I think,
however, that the real reason for this
was the ih-slre to avert a demonstra
tion, as It wiih known that many of the
women were secretly fasting.
"The general hunger strike, which
was participated In by every suffrn
gelle In the prison, was declared for
the purpose of protesting against the
llrltish Ooverntnent's refusal to make
concessions which would give us recog
nition is political prisoners. On the
second afternoon the forcible feedings
"My cell was marked by the prison
doctor ns one where forcible feeding
was to be put Into effect, but fortu
nately the Government made conces
sions and the strike was called off and
I was spared such an experience. On
April 19 I was allowed to receive all of
the letters which had accumulated for
six weeks, including tho United Press
request for a statement,
"Last Hunday nt chapel the service
was so long that many of the women
fainted. They were those who had Wen
subject to the forcible feeding and wero
In n greatly weakened condition by that
dreadful experience.
"Meanwhile, my mother, alarmed nt
the press reports, had hastened to Kng
land from our home in Albany nnd had
applied lo the t'nlted States Kmb.isss
to secure my release. She also asked
lo be permitted In see me and wns
told that she would be allowed to visit
me only on condition that 1 promise

my such agreement.
Next day my mother applied In per

bnssy made any attempt to .secure my
unconditional release I was not aware
of It. While I do not wish to impute
absolute Incompetency to tho embassy.
I must suppose Its function consists In
defending persons iu the Interest of
American voters only.
The Home Office offeied to release
me on condition that I agree not to

London. April 1!" The wcr.cl's cables
were set humming a few days ago on
account of the report, emanating from
Madrid, that the Pope was dead Tho
explanation was that nil official of th"
Papal Nunciature thre had received
a wire iu Italian from Home to the eflect
that his father had died. "1'apa morlo."
The Italians put a grave accent over
llio second a in "papa"; otherwise the
word stands for "Pope " A the tele
graph does not transmit accents, the
message might be. read' "'Ihe Pope is
dead," and this interpretation caused
tlm alarm which lias culminated in a
llerce uttack by the Spanish newspapers
on the Diiector of Telegraphs, who had
communicated the contents of the tele
gram in its wrong interpretation to
