Subject

Suffragist Lucy Burns and another picketer are arrested outside the White House.

Description

This article describes the arrest of two picketers, one of whom is Lucy Burns, outside the White House. The article relate that Burns was called on by a female officer to go peacefully and relinquish the banner she was carrying with her associate. Burns refused, calling the banner her property and challenging the officers to take it from her. Particularly poignant in the article is the letter written by a Russian émigré praising the women for their staunch adherence to democratic values. This letter is then denounced by the official Russian government representatives in Washington as it would jeopardize their relationship with President Wilson.
