London Daily News (28/Mar/1907) - Dora Thewlis

The following is a transcription of a historic newspaper article and may contain occasional errors.


Whatever view is held of the Suffrage question there will we think be no difference of opinion as to the letter which the parents of Dora Thewlis, the child implicated in the last foolish demonstration at Westminster, have sent to the magistrate. Mr. Horace Smith took the common-sense course when he denounced the employment of children in this campaign and wrote to the child's parents. He may be forgiven for having supposed that they were not a party to the adventure of their child. He was mistaken. Mr. and Mrs. Thewlis apparently regard their child's performance with an admiration which perhaps explains the exploit. The public will not share that admiration. Nor will they understand how the cause of the girl-weaver in the Lancashire weaving sheds is to be improved by increasing the voting power of property.
