_____WOMEN AT BAR OF HOUSE___

_____________oOo_____________  

.....PETITION FROM SUFFRAGETTES....

...................................LONDON, April 22.

Petitions representing 100,000 women     will be presented to the House of Com-   mons tomorrow, requesting permission   for women to appear at the Bar to plead   for womanhood suffrage.

. . . . . . . . . Duchess as Tax Resister. . . . . . .

Destraint has been levied upon the Duchess of Bedlford, who, as a protest     against the non-enfranchisement of     women refuses to pay property tax for   the Prince's Skating Rink, which is owned     by her. The tax is eight months overdue.

(When she first announced that she would     resist payment of the tax the Duchess of Bedford said:-"I am very strongly opposed     to the militant tactics adopted by a portion     of those who are in favour of women's         franchise, and I have therefore taken this,       the only course open to me, which appears justifiable, of protesting against the way   in which the question of woman suffrage   has been treated by the Government.)
