LAWLESS MILITANTS.

RIOT AT A MEETING.

BOMBS AND REVOLVERS.

RESISTANCE TO POLICE.

MRS. PANKHURST'S ARREST.

By Telegraph—Proas Association—Copyright.

(Received March 11, 12.5 a.m.)

London, March 10. Another suffragette riot is reported, this time from Glasgow. Mrs. Pankhurst, who had travelled down from London, to address a gathering in the St. Andrew's Hall, had uttered only a few sentences when a number of constables appeared, on the scene.

Several women with truncheons closed round Mrs. Pankhurst, prepared to defend her. The police at once drew their batons and charged the platform.

Amidst a wild struggle, revolvers were fired from the platform and miniature bombs were exploded, a number of women and police being injured.

Mrs. Pankhurst was arrested. She was bundled into a motor-car, hundreds of women attempting to rescue her. The mounted police rushed with Mrs. Pankhurst to the police station. In the meantime the fight continued in the hall. A dozen women on the platform wielded stout truncheons, and stood behind a barbed-wire fence concealed by flowers. From this vantage they hurled flower-pots and chairs, and poured pails of water over the police attempting to scale the four-foot platform. The police used their batons freely and many women fainted.

Later, the crowd attempted to storm the police station, but several hundred constables repulsed them.

Several of the suffragettes arrested for participating in the riot that followed on the capture of Miss Sylvia Pankhurst, have been fined.

Yesterday Sir E. H. Carson received the suffragette deputation, which was greatly dissatisfied with his reply. The members have not divulged the terms of Sir Edward's statement.
