Some of the anti- Suffragists pulled wires and intrigued in poli- tics not for great national ends, but for per- sonal, sectional, and party eudt3. Referring to the n^ilitant tactics, Miss Pank- hurst said they were blamed for being unlady- like, but she and all the other Suffragists Were Englishwomen before they were ladies.

They were more ready to-day to pursue militant methods than in the past.
