Mrs. Pankhurst has been admitted to the United States. She was released from Ellis Island shortly after one o’clock, and was met at the pier by Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont’s motor-car, in which she drove to Mrs. Belmont’s residence.

After a conference of the leaders of the movement on this side, it was announced that Mrs. Pankhurst desired to rest, and the meeting which she was adverted to address to-night has been postponed until Wednesday evening.

The order of the Immigration Commissioners was reversed after President Wilson had conferred with Mr Wilson, Secretary for Labour, at the White House. The latter afterwards announced that Mrs. Pankhurst was to be released on her own recognisance, with the understanding that she would depart at the end of her lecture engagements.

This announcement was made after a hearing before the Immigration Commission in Washington, in the course of which Mrs. Pankhurst’s lawyer gave his client’s pledge to be of good behaviour and her promise not to preach militancy during her stay in this country.
-Reuter.
