The gist of Miss Pankhttrst's reply was: "My champion must be made of moto violent HitifT than this." So the deal fell through and the National Labor party Is now out of the running. There are plenty of printers In ("real Hrit.iln willing to undertake the publi cation of the sulTraBette organ on the same conditions as the National Uibor party, namely, a guarantee that nothing criminal shall appear and a promise to Indemnify the publishers for the cotts of any legal proceedlnBs.
