They Are Furious Over
Withdrawal of Fran?

England on Brink of Suffragette
Outbreak Which Will Make
Former Ones Sink Into In?
of Policemen on Guard
to Prevent Outrages.
London, January 87. ? England Is on
' toe brink ot another campaign by thr
[ suffragettes In comparison with whlrh
former outbreaks of the militant women
will appear Insignificant.
To-ulght 2.O0O policemen were en

windows and excited women were
making lncerfdlary speeches in several
The women believe tn? politicians
! have played a carefully studied trick
) upon them and the decision of the gov?
ernment to drop the franchise bill is
I likely to lend to serious consequences
I In the House of Commons to-day
the Speaker, the Rt. Hon. James Wft
? liam liowther. in response to an inquiry
I by the Prime Minister, announced that
j if any of the amendments to the fran
chise bill giving women the vote should
j be adopted he would be obliged to rule
I that they made it substantially a new
: bill, which would compel its withdrawal
Isrless to Proceed.
Mr. Asquith thereupon announced
I that the Cabinet had decided that
under such circumstances it would be
useless to proceed. Thl* was an?
nounced to a crowded house which dis?
played more interest in the subject,
than had been shown in the last stages
of the home rule hill.
In the meantime, police, in great
' numbers, mounted a ad afoot, were
having difficulties outside the buildings
keeping the vast, crowds in check, whil?
rcserve forces stationed in courtyards
in the vicinity of Parliament were belo
j in readiness to quell disorders of a more
: serious nature.
t The suffragettes held heated meet
i ings to-night. Mrs. Emmeline Pank
,'hur*t and other leaders denounced
! both the enemies and the supporter"1
{of suffrage in the Cabinet for their
I Treachery. They declared an end of
i the truce which the women had ob
I served while awaiting Parliament';
action on the bill.
"Deeds, not words." was the motto
displayed above the platform where
Mrs Pankhurst spoke. She asserted
that the women would consider human
life sacred, but would do at much dam?
age to property as possible.
I Some of her lieu * cnant ? faiied to agree
J with her policy. Mit-s Annie Kenny, one
' of the most prominent of the militants
! advocated the smashing of both pro
; pcrty and heads.
The exexutive committee of the
National I'nion of Women's t-iurf.agc
Societies adopted a resolution rcject
! lng Mr. Asquith's offer of facilities for a
j private member bill next session. A
' number of speakers said the women bad
I prepared a plan of action which for the
? present was secret, but which would
; surprise the world.
Women Are Arrested.
Several women were arrested to
? night, some of whom declined to give
' their names One, believod to be Miss
Sylvia Pankhurst. was captured in St.
Stephens Hall, leading to the House of
? Commons, where she was making a
determined attack upon a large paint
j ing.
The police dispersed the crowd in
: Trafalgar Square, where a man and
j woman were trying to make speech**
J The noted militant Mrs. Despard was
taken to the poln.e station with six
! others.
The big crowds which poured toward
W'es mtnsler this afternoon and to-night
were composed mostly of men who hop?
ed to see an outbreak of the militant
suffragettes. Policemen kept them mov?
ing and drove them down s-do streets
? everybody was good-natured, and
there was much smg'.ig and cheering.
i Practically the whole poiice force
I will be on duty all night. Strong
1 guards are stationed at all the public
j buildings, and a special watch is being
; kept on post-offices and letter boxes.
Mrs. Pankhurst s denunciation of the
: government was fiery and bitter.
"The farce of the reform hill is
played out." she said "Either these
' who framed the bill were ignorant of
parliamentary pro.edure and they were
unfit 10 occupy positions of nspaarai
htiitv or "hey wore s..,i,ndrr|s of the
