ATTEMPT TO BURN A CHURCH. LEAFLETS TIED TO TOMBSTONES. An attempt was made, apparently late on Saturday night, to burn down the old parish church of Clevedon, and indications point to its being the work of suffragists. Early visi- tors to church on Sunday morning found the building full of smoke. Investigation showed that the fire had been started in the vestry, where a large number of cassocks and sur- pluses were destroyed, the wainscotting was burnt through in several places, and the ceil- ing and walls scorched and blackened with smoke, the damage being estimated at JE50. A broken window and a quantity of resin and sulphur on the floor showed that the outbreak was not accidental, and outside the church- yard were found various suffragist leaflets, some of them tied to tombstones. But for the absence of wind, and the fact that the floor of the vestry is flagged, the flames would pro- bably have reached the vestment boxes and thence the main building. MISS S. PANKHURST AT THE ABBEY. Miss Sylvia Pankliurst, whose licence under the Cat and Mouse Act expired at mid- night on Saturday, was carried to Westmin- ster Abbey on an invalid carriage on Sunday evening, accompanied by a large contingent of members of the East London Federation of Suffragettes. At the door of the Abbey the party was refused admission, the building being full. They therefore turned into St. Margaret's-street. and outside the north door of the Abbey held a service, the Rev. C. A. Wills officiating. Inside the Abbey the preacher, the Rev. R. T. Talbot, D.D., Canon of Bristol, was twice interrupted by women suffragists, three of whom were ejected.
