WOMEN AND MR JOHN BURNS. A mass meeting in Battersea Town Hall on Tuesday in support of the Licensing Bill was addressed by Mr John Burns. A large number of suffragists had obtained admission, to- gether with some Socialists, and both com- bined to interrupt Mr Burns, who delivered a vigorous speech in favour of tl| £ Bill, which he predicted would pass. Suffragists were ejected in rapid succession by a sturdy band of stewards, who occa- sionally were also called upon to eject men. Crowds assembled outside the hall and loudly cheered the persons ejected,.lively scenes being enacted. The meeting decided to petition in favour of the Bill. Mr Burns, alluding to the disorder at the end of his speech, said the effect of the un- womanly and disgraceful interruptions had been to make him almost for the first time ashamed of the fact that he was a supporter of women's suffrage. Exhibitions of that sort only put back the clock and damaged the women's cause. They would, however, have no effect on the Governmens, who would not swerve from what they intended to do. After the meeting was over the streets near the hall were thronged with thousands of people, and the utmost excitement prevailed until a late hour, and a large force of police preserved order.
