ENGLISH WOMEN START
A RIOT IN COURT ROOM
Scratch Policemen's Faces and Cause So Much Trouble
They Are Re-arrested and Sentenced to Prison After
Refusing to Give Bonds.
LONDON, Oct. 24.—Ten women
suffragists, who crowded Into the
house of commons yesterday, were
arraigned in court today and
bound over to keep the peace for
six months. The women were dis
pleased, as they had hoped to pose
in jail as martyrs.
The women finally attacked a po
liceman left In charge of them, af
ter refusing to leave the building.
They took his key from him and
locked him in the court room.
Other officers had a hard fight to
regain the key.
COUNCIL LEAVES POLICE
Not withstanding all tho furore of
last week over the need of better
police protection, the city council
last night failed to take further ac
tion on the ordinance providing for
an increase of the force.
This ordinance was given its first
reading in a special meeting called
by Mayor Daggett, following the |
murder of Reno Hutchinson, it
was supposed to be taken up and
passed last night so that reinforce-,
menta could be available at once. ]
Why this was not done is ex
plained around the city hall in the
expression "the frnnieup was not
right." Councllmen Stlmmell, liorr,
Baldwin and Brown were absent.
What other condition the "frame
up" refers to Is one of the myster
ies of city government. It might
be translated to Indicate that the
matter of apportioning new jobs
had proved more troublesome than
expected, and it probably Indicates
that councllmen present are op
posed to any Increase. i
Chief of Police Waller protests
that compared with other cities
Spokane is Inadequately provided
with police protection. The fact
that the city is inadequately pro
tected, whatever the trouble is, has
been demonstrated beyond dispute.
As the chief figures it, a force
of 51 men looks alter some 86,000

Chief Waller this morning said
he supposed that the reason the
matter of additional men was not
! brought before the council last
night was because four of the
councllmen were absent.
! In proof of the statement that
Spokane has less police protection
than almost any other city, Chief
Waller had E. J. Cannon, division
| counsel for the Northern Pacific
railroad, prepare a statement in
which he says that Spokane is suf
fering by iin Insufficient police
force. The result of Mr. Cannon's
figures shows that the average
force to the population in St.
1-ouis Is 2.117 to 1,000; Cleveland,
1 lilt; Milwaukee. 1.15; Minnea
polis. 1.18; Kansas City. 1.72; Ro
chester, 1,67; Denver, 1.4t1.
Concluding, Mr. Cannon says:
"When you consider the fact that
Spokane is yet a new city, sur
rounded by mining districts and
timber territory, construction of
new railroads carried on In all di
rections, and other inducements
held out to floating populations,
Spokane has not nearly the protec
tion, bearing In mind its location,
that the older and larger cities
have whose population is more set
tled and more accessible to police
protection with les.s travel."
With nearly every Candidate on
both republican and democratic
tickets pledged to these political
reforms, and a strong public senti
ment in their favor, the Dutchman
decided It was time to drop that
end of the fight in the present
campaign. He is, however, continu
