SUFFRAGETTES.     Bomb and the Bank of England.                          

LONDON. April 14.         Last night suffragettes destroyed the bowling greens at Belladonston (Ireland).       What might have been the most serious outrage yet perpetrated by suffragettes was frustrated this evening.       Policemen discovered inside the railings   of the Bank of England a bomb timed for to explode at midnight. It contained 3 oz. of powerful explosive, some metal, and a   number of hairpins - the last named constituent, no doubt, to make known the     source of the intended sensation.       The bomb was similar to that used in   the attempt to blow up Oxted Railway Station. It contained a watch with     attachment for exploding, but was clumsily fitted. If it had exploded when the streets were crowded a number of people would probably have been injured.
