Dramatic Act of Militants In

HISTORIC CHAIR DAMAGED
Tall Woman Dressed in Black Is

Contemplates Making Test
Case In Civil Courts.
LONDON, June 11. Suf frag-ettes
staged one of the most dramatic acts of
their campaign today when they ex
ploded a bomb In Westminster Abbey
at .the moment that Right Honorable
Reginald McKenna, secretary of state
for home affairs, was delivering an
optimistic speech In the House of Com
mons nearby, regarding the govern
ment's method of dealing" with, the
The bomb was placed beside the fa
mous coronation chair in Edward the
Confessor's chapel. Although It did
little damage, its report penetrated to
the chamber of the House, Interrupting
Mr. McKenna's oration and bringing
some of the members into the street
to learn what had happened.
Scotland Yard Report Conservative.
The detonation was heard for blocks
and a crowd quickly filled the square
in front of the Abbey. A statement is
sued by Scotland Yard gives the facts
in conservative form.
"At 6 o'clock," says the statement,
'a small bomb was exploded In im
mediate proximity of the coronation
chair. Fortunately the damage done
was slight. A portion of the carved
back of the chair was blown off and
some of the stone carving of the screen
of the great altar was damaged, ap
parently by some iron nuts contained
in the bomb.
"The bomb, thin metal, nickel plated,
was exploded by a fuse. A woman's
feather boa, a guide book and a small
blaclc silk bag" were found on a chair
near by. The police are making" In
quiries In conjunction with His
Majesty's Inspector of explosives."
Dut Cloud Fills CnapeL
A hundred or more visitors, divided
into small parties, were being" con
ducted about the abbey, when a sudden
flash penetrated every recess. A sharp
detonation set the women screaming
and running" for the doors. A great
cloud of dust filled the chapel.
The Dean of Westminster, with the
vergers and police, found that an orna
mental spike on the back of the chair
had been blown away and a splinter of
wood six by three Inches ripped off.
Two young women who were nearest
the chair were taken to the Plx sta
tion, but proved to be foreigners and
were released. The police are trying
to find a tall woman dressed in black
who was seen standing" close to the
chair before the explosion.
The dean has decided not to placard
the abbey with the ' familiar sign,
"Closed until further notice, which
decorated the doors of many London
art galleries, but it is possible that all
persons entering hereafter may be ex
amined for explosives.
Government to Hike Teat Case.
The discussion of the militant cam
paign In the House of Commons today
showed that the government contem
plates no new measure to compel the
militant women except to inaugurate
an attempt to make the subscribers
to the funds of the Women's Social
and Political Union responsible for the
damage the militants inflict. It Is be
lieved that a test case will be made
of the mutilation of the Rockeby
Venus, which was slashed last March
by May Richardson. If the govern
ment is successful, it is believed in
surance companies will bring suits for
the buildings burned and other per
sons and corporations which have suf
fered losses will do likewise.
The home secretary, the Right Hon
THE MORNINC OREGONIAN, FRIDAT, JTJXE
orable Reginald McKenna, who made a
lengthy speech in the House, dismissed
the suggestion of the deportation of
the militants as impracticable and de
clared that to let them commit suicide
in Jail by starvation would likely
arouse sympathy. He appealed to the
newspapers to kill th agitation by
ceasing to give them the advertisement
they feed upon.
Salisbury Reference Unfortunate.
Lord Robert Cecil, a son of the late
Marquis of Salisbury, who raised the
question in the House, made an un

law, which is a serious matter," he
The Liberal side gave expression to
sarcastic cheers, because Lord. Robert
Cecil had warmly supported tte Ulster

sponded, "to have reference to recent
events In Ireland. I desire to say how
totally different the two events are.
