it Miss E. Sylvia Pankhurst, second
daughter of Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst
of England, has just arrived In this
country, to oversee the publication of
her new book, The Suffragette, and
to lecture on suffrage. She gave her
finrt address yesterday in New York
for the Women's Political Union. The
Massachusetts W. S. A. has engaged
Miss Pankhurst to speak on Tuesday
evening, Jan. 10, at Ford Hall, Boston.
Admission free. Reserved seats, 60c.

  Mrs. Pankhurst's-sister Mrs. Clarke,
  was 'amongthe women    imprisoned
after the recent demonstrations in
London.   It Is reported that Mrs.
Clarke received harsh treatment In
prison, and died Just after her release.
It is not yet known whether her death
was due to ill usage in jail or to the
extreme brutality with which -the wom-
on were handled by the police before
their arrest.


  Mrs. Elizabeth Case Goddard oft
Colorado Springs has a letter In the j
last Issue of Mr. Bok's magazine, as-
serting that equal suffrage is a failure.u
Her account ts much less lurid than c
Ri]chard Brry's. She does not allege
any'-definite bad results, but denies any *
good ones.b              e    a
Mr. Bok is unlucky In his witnesses. nt
A few months ago Mrs. Goddard visit-
ed Providence, R. I., and in an Inter-
view, in the Providence Journal made
severe onslaught on Judge Lindsey
Di the Denver Juvenile Court, declar- th
Ig that he had broken every law on w]
the statute books. This at once aligns in
Wr. Goddard with the forces of cor-
ruption In Colorado that Judge Lind-es
