LONDON, Mny 'S2. Kin Oeorge
nnd Queen Mary were compelled to
listen today to the harangue nf it
militant suffragette while they were
attending it matinee nt Hih Mnjcnty'
theater. A woman rose in the Hlnlln
nnd begnn lo addresn the kinjr: "You
Kutslan enr," Mie shrieked.
The nttcndnnt.s quickly ru-dicd in
nnd tried to get her out, but found
she wk chained to the heat. They
had to file n link before tdic could
be removed. '
Shouting nt Mujcfily
WTiitc thirf wns in progress half n
dozen women in different imrtx of
the theater started shouting at Iih
majesty. One of them junied on the
ritflgo and commenced a speech.
Wlirn she had been thrown out, oth
Eventually nil the disturbers were
ejected. The police had n difficult
struggle to save the disturber from
rough handling hy the crowd.
The "wild women" of the Woaea's
Social und Political Union, the .mili
tant suffragettes' organization, con
tinued todny their terrorizing tactics
by 'making- two separate attacks on
national art treasures.
Ataxic Art TrcMure
Tho turmoil of the battle in the
vicinity of Uuckiiigham I'ulace, where
n column of determined women yes
terday attempted to reach the king
with it petition, had bnrly biibsided
when early this morning a woman
armed with it loaded cane ruined
five mnsterpkees in the national gal
lery. Almost himultaueotisly another
woman wrecked a picture hanging in
the Hoyul Academy of Art. ltutlt
women were arrested.
A little later the magistrate before
whom were, brought the fifty-seven
women arrested in connection with
yesterduy's disturbances was com
pelled to suspend the proceedings be
cause the accused created such a din
that nothing could be heard,
Tiie pictures damaged at the na
tional gallery were a "Madonna mid
Child with Infnfit Saints," n "Por
trait of (Jiruloum Mulutiui," "Saints
John nnd Christopher and Hie Doge,"
a landscape with thu death of Saint
Peter, nnd 'Christ's Agony in the
Garden of Eden." The painting
gashed nt the lloynl Academy wan
"Prima veru," by George Clousen.
Tho academy was filled with a fiibli
iounble throng when it woman drew n
butcher's cleaver and dashed at the
picture. Attendants nt oneu seized
her nnd it was only the presence of
the police which prevented her from
being roughly handled by the wi
tutors'. IJoth women refused to give their
names. Tlio national gallery vaudal
left a trail of blued behind her from
tuts from broken glass. Thu uu
liinnl gallery was immediately dol
ed and all the students turned out.
