Swann advocated that city detectives

This member was arrested four times

Beautiful New Home of Lloyd
George Is Wrecked.
Broken Hatpin Furnish Clue
Mr. Pankhurat Accept Full
Responsibility for Act.
London A bomb which was explod
ed in the country residence of Chaneel-
lor of the Exchequer David Lloyd-
George at Walton Heath Thursday
i morning, virtually destroyed the hand
some house but injured none. Police
inquiry brought the suffragists under
suspicion and a message from Cardiff,
Wales, quoted Mrs. Emmaline Pank-
y hurst as accepting the full responsibil
; ity for the act.
; "We have blown up the chancellor
of the exchequer's house," Mrs. Pank-
hurst said to an enthusiastic meeting
of sufTargettes at Cardiff. "The au-
thorities need not look for the woman
who actually did it. I personally ao
cept full responsibility for it."
Mrs. Pank hurst declared that if she
; were sent to penal servitude she would
; go on a hunger strike.
"The government will then have to
set me free, " she added, "or let me
, die. If I drop out a hundred women
are ready to take my place."
I The beautiful Lloyd-Georee country
residence is new and has not yet been
occupied. Mr. Lloyd-George himself
is on a motor trip through France.
Most of the rooms in the building
were wrecked. The bomb, which con
sisted of two seven-pound cans of pow
der, had been placed in oil-saturated
heaps of shavings in separate rooms.
Burning candles carried the flame to
the wood and caused the explosion.
The force of the blast split the brick
walls in all directions.
Finding of two hatpins in the
wreckage at once led the police to sus
pect women. Then came a report
from neighbors that an automobile
containing several women had passed
through the village early in the morn
ing. An official of the Woman's So
cial and Political Union, however, told
the police that the society had no
knowledge of the perpetrators.
"General" Flora Drummond, how
ever, declared that the explosion was
"undoubtedly the work of women."
She exclaimed enthusiastically: "I
think it is grand. It was a fine act,
successfully carried out, and shows
the determination of the women. I
say 'all power to all kinds of militancy
in tbe direction of harassing cabinet
ministers, short of taking human
This is the second time within a
year that violent methods have been
used against the residences of cabinet
ministers, the first being an attempt
to burn the house of Lewis Harcourt,
secretary for the colonies, at Nuneham.
