Life In England.
For 27ie Bee.
Landing in a foreign country for the
first time is an interesting event in
one's life. Everything is now and
atrange , and you look and listen until
the eye is wearied with seeing , and the
oar burdened with hearing. Coming
to Liverpool in a ship , the Hrst thing
you will observe are the docks and
landing stage. The docks are gigantic
Blono walls huilt out in the river to the
deep water line , and enclosing areas of
ileop water , where the ships Ho to dis
charge their burdens , and to receive
their cargoes. Tlieso docks are sup
plied with iiumuiiho gates , through
which the ships enter or depart at high
water. On the inner and partition
wallb , stand great warehouses , which re-
uoivc the incoming and outgoing mer
chandise of many lands. Liverpool and
Its sister city , Uirkunhoad , have about
niuo or ten miles of solid btouo docks.
The lauding stage is
ever built by man. It is a great plat
form nearly half a milo long , and from
fifty to ono hundred fcot broad , resting
upon largo iron pontoons , and
DOnnooting with the shore by
nbout u iloion wagon-ways and
covered foot-ways. Upon the landing-
litugo are a number of frnim buildings ,
Including a custom-houso and railroad
ofllco. This marvelous construction is
about ouo hundred feet from the shore ,
reaching out Into deep water , and all
the mlgnty mass rises and falls with
the tide n. distance of twenty-five foot.
It is composed of many sections , and in
rough weather its undulations are not
unllko the movements of a mighty nor-
pont. I know of few things' more in
teresting than the docks und landing-
Ktago in Llveritool. You may well
pause and observe thorn , for you will
not see their like again.
The things that most Impress a
Btrungor upou landing iu England uro
and the permanency of all kinds of
constructions. The nouses , fences mid
briduuu nro nil built of brick , stone or
iron , and with ordinary euro will last
for centuries. As men move but seldom

This permalloy of things has its advan
tages and disadvantages. Money is

with UH In Amudea. While progress in
"England IB Blow , and in muiiy rospoota
the people are behind the times , this
may bo praforiiblo to moving at a fever
ish and headlong paco. . England is
a finished country in a material point
of view , and the people who have ade
quate possessions there are happier
than any people could bo in the mad
pursuit of wealth. It may bo bettor to
bo slow in some respects than to repre
sent an unhealthy growth. The time
will como in our own country when
men will return from the far West
to the Middle and Southern and even
the Eastern States , and marvel at the
rich and uncultivated country that
they passed over in their rapid rush
for the setting sun.
Upon every hand there are monuments
ments in England reminding us of the
days that are gone. When I was
at the Old Independence Hall in Phila
delphia and saw the room in which the
immortal Declaration was signed , and
looked upon the old boll that rang out
the glad news of the birth of Liberty ;
and when I was in Fancuil hall in Bos
ton , and then crossed over to Charles-
town and climbed to the top
of Buukorkill monument , I thought
I was in an atmosphere of antiquity.
But when compared with what England
contaitib , those things are but the crea
tures of yesterday. Recently Mr.
Gladstone spoke of the parliament that
was iu power in 1770 as a ' 'late govern
ment. " . And such it really was. Think
of the history of the world , and even
that of England , and how young is .our
country. And if the ohild has assumed
such proportions already , what will the
full grown man boV
I stood upon the old wall of Chester ,
that was begun by Julius Casar , prob
ably during the life-time of the Apostle
John ; and there are many old houses
and castles and abbeys there that wore
built during the dark ages. Most of
these cabtlcs and abbeys are in magnifi
cent ruins , but some of them are quite
well preserved. They wore built not
only In the superstitious days of old ,
but in the times when might made
rightj and the abbeys are monuments
of the reign of priest-craft , and the cast
les are souvenirs of the days of blood in
the good old times.
Some out : has said that Americans
have no reverence because they have
no ruins. Wall , I am glad that we have
no monuments of the superstition and
barbarity indicated by many of the ruins
of. the old world ; and if wo hud
such it would not bo like us to rever
ence them.
But I must toll about the people
whom wo find inEngland. Of course
there are muny exceptions , but English
men themselves will boar mo out in say
ing that we do not generally meet the
bo&t.looking English people in America.
Englishmen are such ardent lovers of
their own country , und usually oo over
estimate its relative advantages , that
few of them will over ioavo it perma
nently unless forced to doeo by poverty
or crimo. Consequently the majority of
"raw" Englishmen that wo meet in
America cotnu from the very poor
classes who huvo for centuries boon
pinched with poverty und inured to
drudgery and distress. They are there
fore neither so rollnod nor hnndsoma as
the families that have never boon in
want , and who have no occasion to seek
for a livelihood abroad. In America the
features of the rich and puor are much
alike , but it is notbo in England. Cen
turion of luxury on the ono hand , and
extreme want on the other , huvo loft
The bettor classes are generally very
handsome , but the poor uro usu
ally found in the opposite extreme -
tremo , To Hoopla who can care
well for their bodies , the climate is ftw-
orablo to the most beautiful complex
ion. Dull will toll you how the people
are arranged as to clones ; and this de
scription is not ( mug inory but real.
The first class is , pf course , the royal
family , which consists of the queen and
her descendants , and these whom they
marry who arc of royal blood in other
nations. To the royal family no onp can
ever belong except by the accident of
The second class is composed of the
nobility , such as dukes , earls , marquises ,
knights , etc. Most of these titles are
hereditary , and these who do attain to
them by great wealth or talents are not
equal in social standing to these who in
herit them , but who may be lacking in
many mental and moral qualities. It is
marvelous how the people reverence
these high ditrnitarios. Even Mr.
Gladstone used language > like this :
"As far as I am able to enter into the
feelings of a duke , " etc.
The third class consists of untltlcd
statesmen , eminent physicians , lawyers ,
scholars , authors , clergymen of the es
tablished church , noted noncomformist
preachers , and people who are rich
enough to _ live without any kind of busi
ness. This th'.rd class composes the gen
try. No man below It is considered a eren-
tlemanin England .Hainan iscompollcd
to follow a business , or to work with his
hands or brains in order to make money
ho is not a gentleman , but only n per
son , and the gentleman does not care to
associate with him , and especially to
oat with him. Between people who
own carriages and these who do not ,
there is u 'great gulf fixed.
As lonir as Mr. Gladstone fells trees
simply for exorcise or pleasure , the in
dustry of the "grand old man" is a sub
ject for general comment and lid mi ra
tion v and the chips from his axe adorn
and dignify many an English parlor ;
but let the eloquent old statesman bo
compelled to chop down trees for a live
lihood und the glory of his chips will
depart , and they would not oven burn
bettor than the. kindling of the poor'
woodman whose knowledge extends lit
tle beyond the horizon that hides the
great world from his vision.
The fourth class is composed of ordi
nary professional mon , prominent mer
chants , skilled workman of the highest
class , etc. This is a very ueofel ohms ,
corresponding to the same people in
America. These men and women do
not perform manual labor , but with
their business und brains do the
most important work of the country.
Few of this class tould or would work
with their hands , and retain their
caste. One of those men will smoke his
pipe on the street or in company , and
think nothing about it , but to carry a
market basket or a baby , lie would con
sider next thing to disgraceful.
The fifth class is-mado up of all small
store-keepers , ordinary workiiigmon ,
and farmers ( i.e. , farm laborers ) . Many
of this class uro quite well educated , and
many arc very ignorant. Education is
not general among the poor ns it is
The sixth'class are very poor , many
ofjvhomaro beggars. I can hardly
give you au idea of these for wo have
nobody in this country like them. Here
the very poor are often na clean and in
telligent as anybody ; but in England ,
extreme poverty is frequently another
name fovj noranco , worthleasneas and
tilth , SluTo the establishment of the
Feudal system % the poor nro the born
vassals of the rich , know of nothing
bettor , expect to bo nothing else , and
Boom ( juito satisfied if they can obtain
coarse food , clothing , shelter und plenty
to drink. Those who are not employed
tis servants pick up u precarious "liv
ing" by doing od'd jobs , and by bog
ging. But the bettor * class
of servants como from the fifth tyul not
the sixth class. Those last are gen
erally too low to obtain respectable em
ployment , It makes the wfaole heart
sick to go into the slums of an
city and sou. the thousand : ) of half.-
starved and nearly "naked people swarm
oat of the narrow streets and buck
oourts on a line day. Hero are multi
tudes of children whoso eyes firstopened
on these bare brick'walls , dreary courts ,
dark alloys , and dirty streets. Hero
these poor creatures who were intended
to bo in the imago of God , are living in
entire ignorance of wholesome food ,
warm clothingsunny skies , kind words ,
and happy homes. What has reduced
the people to this condition11 ! or , What
makes the slums of these cities ? Even
their condition of servitude would not
reduce these popolo to such straits.
There are two principal causes.
There are too many people in many
of these old countries , especially in the
cities ; the supply of workmen is double
the demand , wages are very low , and in
this state of things the survival of the
littest becomes the rule. The more com
petent and industrious find employment ,
und the incompetent and indolent go
down , and with them many worthy pco-
who have become the victims of unlor-
tunate circumstances.
Drink. This is the most copious
feeder of the slums. Thousands of
people who could live above want upon
their wages are impoverished by drink.
And what is worse than all , the women
are , in many cases , oven harder drink
ers than the men. Little children are
sent out upon the cold streets , often iu
rain and snow , to soil kindling wood or
to bog , and are frequently beaten by
their drunken and brutal parents if
they do not return with n given sum of
money. I have been children from five
to ten yours old on the streets late ut
night , barefooted oven in winter , and
crying for money that they might re
turn to some supremely miserable place
that they cull "homo. " Every day
mon , womoii and children go "siiijring 1
through the streets for bread and
money ; und iu some parts of the city
you will walk few paces or turn few cor
ners without confronting some of those
poor mendicants. Many of thorn are in
the greatest need , and many inoro are
simply trying to obtain the means to
buy drink.
What is being done to remedy this
unhappy state of things ? There uro
tnauy agencies at .work ; I can not men
tion thorn all ) but a few will indicate to
you that England' is trying to care for
Iicr ooor : " '
1. The city governments do nil in
their power , Ilratvby furnishing work
in making roadscleaning ( streets , ate. ,
for all who are willing to do such work.
This extra work coinos very heavy u ] > on
the taxpayers , bufc'thoy ' discharge these
obligations without much complaint. If
some of our American poonlo who grum
ble at high tnxosicould but live awhile
in the old world } they would return to
their homes poorer , but wiser und bet
ter contented. Secondly , by providing
for as many us possible in the alms-
houses. Those urfS Hllod mostly by people
ple unable to work ,
2. The churchcs'do much for the re
lief of the poor , aid ) in this the Estab
lished church cxoelc all others ; and
what wonder ? for she has plenty of
money to upend in that way. And this
very thing gives her u strong hold upon
the poor , us well as to rouiu her power
und influence upon the rich. But till
the churches do well in this direction ,
and only the lust judgment will reveal
the sorrows soothed and the sufferings
assuaged by religious' people in Eng
8. The various benevolent socie
ties are doing much to miti
gate the sulToringfl of the
poor , "Strangers' Hosts. " "Sheltering
Humes , " etc. , are numerous , and nro
doing n grand work for the needy.
.Sheltering homos nro places when )
'riciid'oss orphan * ) are taken and fed
and glothod and trained in .good bo
huvior and in books for a few months ,
and then taken away to Canada , where
homes are found for them in respect
able families. Hundreds are taken out
there every year , aud their change
from the most abject wuntand , keenest
suffering to the fair fields' and happy
homos of the new world is literally sal
vation to the lost.
4. Many rich men are doing much for
the poor in an individual capacity.
Rich men in England are often princely
givers. I am acquainted with a mem
ber of parliament who gives 110,000
meals to the poor every year. I yisited
a largo hall in Liverpool whore this
gentleman gives a tea and some money
once every week to about three hun
dred aged widows. I never saw so
many widows together before , and
could but reflect upon the borrow that
was represented in the past and present
lives of these ! 500 women 1 A commend
able thing this in a member of parlia
ment to devote so liberal a share of his
means in brightening the liresof the
worths' poorl
But the people needing help increase
rather than decrease in numbers , for
several reasons :
1. There are more of thorn than can
bo helped short of a go no nil division of
property , which , of course , will never
" . No people increase so rapidly as
the very poor in England. Children ,
come in troops , and arc tin nod out to
augment the social dillicullios of the
8. Muny of thcso people uro so indo
lent and shiftless that their wants are
continually returning.
4. The already overcrowded popula
tion is becoming uioro densely populated
all the time , and as the population in
creases the condition of the poor grows
worse. Sojno relief is gained by emi
gration , but few of these people can
move without assistance , and they are
the very people whom a now country
does not need.
5. Above all , the curse of strong
drink is the great cause of the people's
poverty. Mon and women pour into the
snloons and drink until the last penny
is gone. Under ull those circumstances ,
provision for the ) wor in England is a
question most dillicult of solution.
