SUFFRAGETTE POLICY. MILITANT TRUCE WILL SOON BE OVER. The Lyceum Theatre at Newport was I crowded on Thursday afternoon, when Mrs. Pankhurst spoke on the subject of votes for women. A good many men were turned away at the beginning of the proceedings, as the meeting was intended to be for women only. Several women who were expected to be in favour of a "row" were also not admitted. Thus a quiet and attentive hear- ing was assured for the speakers. The chair was taken by Miss Barrett. Mrs. Pankhurst spoke with great feeling when dealing with the moral aspect of women's political and social work. It was intended, she said, to carry on a mission in all the large towns of the country during the next few weeks ;:> A large number of questions were asked. Mrs. Pankhurst explained that the suffra- gettes opposed the Liberals at the election because they were the party in power-the party who could give the vote if they wished. What the suffragettes hoped was that neither party would have a large majority in Parlia- ment. Thanks to some extent to the suffra- gettes, the Liberals now had only a majority that they could depend upon of two. The Government could not depend upon the Irish or the Labour party. ("Oh.") o; they could not depend upon either of those parties unless they gave them somethingâand if the Welsh party was sensible they would endea- vour to get something also. Unless the Government did something for the suffra- gettes, the militant truce would soon be over. A vote of thanks to Mrs. Pankhurst was carried, on the motion of Mrs. D. A. Thomas, I seconded by Mrs. Pilliner, of Llantarnam.
