9 February 1907

Of 13 cases listed at Highgate Police Court, six are of cruelty to horses. The magistrate says that lately these cases have been very much on the increase and in future the Bench will have to deal more severely with them.

A public meeting is held at the Hampstead Conservatoire in Eton Avenue in support of the enfranchisement of women. The large hall was completely filled, mostly by ladies. The chairman says he has worked on several public bodies with ladies and been very much impressed by the fact that their intelligence is quite equal to that of the men, their conscientiousness is greater and, in his experience, they do not talk so much as men.

The Mayor and Mayoress entertain 250 aged residents at Hampstead Town Hall, the only qualification being that invited persons should be poor but respectable and over 60.
