The drink question is baring a special airing in London just now. Mr. Goscfaen, the Chancellor of the Ex chequer, has in his budget bill introduced a clause to create a fund out of which tbe County Councils will be able to buy up the license of any public house they may think unnecessary, and so reduce the number of saloons. This is called the "compensation of publicans" cause, and has set all the tee totalers and temperance societies in Eng land by the ears. The drink question here, as in the 'States, is the most difficult of all questions for any Government to handle. It seems impossi ble to please the temperance people, short of abolishing public houses altogether, and as neither the people or the treasury would erer stand this, we may safely presume that our children and our children's children to the twentieth generation, if the world lasts as long, will be fighting orer tbe question of booze or no booze, high license or no license stall. IIEAVT DBIUKEES. The English, as a race, are heavy drink ers, far more so than tbe Americans taking the people as a whole, but in this country you never somehow see the evil effects of drink "to so great a degree as you do in America. I have known more men go to ruin from whisky in America in one year than I have known in 20 years on this side. This fact is, I think, owing to manycauses, the principal one being in my opinion the qnality of tbe liquor drunk. Good whisKy, even if taken in excess, very seldom does a man any very great amount of harm, but bad whisky whether drank in moderation or in "lashins o' it" very soon brings on a lit of the ''Jim jams" and causes the drinker to people the earth in his mind's eye with more snakes than Mr. Stanley ever saw in Africa. I must say that, except in certain places, the greater part of the whisky drunk by the people in America is bad whisky. It is too new, and in addition to this a goodly pro portion of the stuff sold over the counter has by judicious manipulation oi the saloon keeper been "mixed." The barkeeper who can make a gallon go a mile is nlwnys in demand, and saloon keepers care little for the coats of their customers' stomachs so long as they can keep good coats on their own backs. Another undoubted evil in American drinking is the love of the aver age drinker for the insidious ''cocktail," "whisky sour," "mint julep" and "mixed" drinks generally. THE AVERAGE IMBIBER. I am quite aware that your regular old soaker who is so impregnated with whisky that all the worms in tho neighborhood of his grave will go on a protracted spree when he dies, eschews mixed drinks altogether and sticks to "straight," but I am not talk ing now so muck of the regular toper as the average drinker, and to him the cocktail is ssmother'b milk. The whisky in the cock tail may be of the best, but all its good qual ities are neutralized by the concoctions used in the mixing. Another thing that is against the Ameri can drinker is the climate. Tbe "glorious climate of Californy," or other States, may be indeed magnificent, and the soil may grow more wheat to the acre than any soil on earth, or pumpkins larger than a house, but it is very far from being an ideal climate from a drinker's point of view. You feel the effect or liquor on you far sooner in the States than here, and you feel it more in England than you do in Scotland. In some parts of the Highlands of Scot land, notably the "Western Isles, a man may drink the "barley brce" all day on the hills, and wind up the evening with countless tumblers of whisky toddy, and yet wake in the morning with a mouth like an infant's, and without a trace ol headache. Could you do tbe same in Americi with any whisky unless it be some special brand from the "Blue Grass." I trow not. A WOULD-WIDE EVIL. The evils of drink may be said to be world wide among a certain class of the popula tion. In tbe East End of London men and women make beasts of themselves on "blue ruin" and vile gin, in Prance on absinthe and bad cognac, in Russia on "saki," in India on "arrack" and in Africa on palm toddy. All the world over human beings "booze," and will continne to "booze" until the lamb takes it into its head to go to sleep beside tbe lion. In England the power of the public house is just as great in politics as that ot tbe saloon is with you, and the more they lover the franchise tbe greater it will become. "When the time comes here for manhood suffrage the power of the pub lic house will be trebled. A drink will go a long way with the average manhood suffrage voter. At present there is a certain amount of respectability attached to a man who has a vote He pays rent and taxes and contrib utes so far as he is able to the common fund. But when the day comes as come it will, all kicking notwithstanding when Jack will be as good as his master, and every barroom loa'er and East End touch who never did an honest day's work in their i ' iBuuiuuicu a cent io me puoiio purse except in the way of picking oakum, will have his vote, then indeed will the publican rule the roost. SOME POINTS OP DIFFERENCE. There is a good deal of difference between tbe saloon and the public house. The for mer, in the large towns at any rate, is far better fitted up than the latter. The glass, the bar fittings, and last, but certainly not least, the barkeeper, are on a more gorgeous scale. The saloon is essentially a drinking place rfliere men go and take their drink and generally walk out again. The public bouse, on the other hand, makes a pretense, at any rate, of comfort. In most public bouses you have a "snuggery" behind the bar to which the landlord's or the barmaid's favorite customers have the open setame, and where generally may be fonnd one or two of the "regulars" sipping their "rum 'ot" and settling the affairs of Europe to their own entire satisfaction. There is no state problem that is too difficult for the average public house "recular" to tackle. Another appendage of the saloon is want ing in the public house, viz, the barkeeper. The place of the man of the white jackets and blazing diamond is tufcpn hv the bar maid. The English barmaid is sui generis. Generally employed for iier good looks and ability to "chafl," she can bold her own with a Duke or a pickpocket, and although she has not the deftness of her male counter part in making that beautilul circular sweep of the glasses when mixing a cock tail, she can with infinite grace and charm work the handle of the beer pump so as to Rive the proper 'ead to the pint of bitter or the pot of 'arf-and-'arf served out to her customers. They work long hours, and as often as not marry some "gentleman's gentleman" who has been among their cus tomers, and settle down in a public house ot their own. b A TLACE FOB EVERYBODY. Inaddition to the "snuggery" the public finnse has its nrivate bar lor "rfassM nnt. " " "'I that is to say only drink to be drunk on the premises is served here, and also its "pub lie" bar and "bottle and iug" entrance. At the latter the workmen fill their pails of beer, or the dinner jugs are brougbt to do filled. There is no law in England against selling liquor to minors, at least if there is it is one that is more honored in the bresch than the observance, and at all times at the "bottle and jug" entrance may be seen little toddlers with beer cans almost as big as themselves, who have been sent out to "fetch the beer." Of course, there are large bars in London that are very similar to an American saloon. Spiers and Pond have several scattered over London, and these have none of the usual attributes of the publio house. There is one long bar gorgeous in glass and mirrors, and oenina it a. row or blacfc-troccea, wnue-cui-lared and white-capped barmaids. The molt famous of these bars are the Criterion, in Piccadilly; the Gaiety, in the Strand; the Fifth Avenne, and the Holborn Viaduct. They also run nearly all the bars at the various London stations, and these bars are conducted on the same principle. Other well-known bars are the St James Hall, in Piccadilly; the "Grand," in the Strand, and Romano's, also in the Strand. None ot the large hotels in London have bars, and if you want a drink in a hotel you must have it served in the smoking room. A QUESTION OF LOCALITY. Now as to what they drink that varies with the locality. In the "West End, in fact in all the territory west of Temple Bar, in the large bars the drink is whisky and beer, and occasionally brandy and soda. The latter used to be the almost universal drink of the "swell division," but in late years it has given place to Scotch or Irish whisky. The whisky is never drunk neat as with you, but is invariably mixed with either cold water, soda water, or apollinaris or 'Polly.' This may possibly be another reason why drinking does not do so much harm. With you the whisky has such a good start of the water that it never gets a chance ofmixing. Sherry, and rarely port wine, is also drunk, but the most popular drink is beer and whisky. There is no pushing of the bottle over the counter here with a polite reqnest to help yourself, and an inquiry to follow if you wouldn't like a towel also. You must name the quantity you desire, and this is apportioned to you according to the price you are willing to pay for it. Two pence, 3 pence, 4 pence or 6 pence being shortly "5," "3," "4" or "C" o'whisky. In the public house bars, whether east or west of Temple Bar,"beer," " 'arf and 'arf." stout, gin, whisky or rum, 'ot or cold, are the favorite tipples, and the regular toper generally selects the liquid he desires" to get foil on according to the state of his finances. He may possibly begin on whisky or gin, and finish up on beer or 'arf and 'arf, of which latter he can, of course, get more for his money, although the effect is not so great. rnocEESs op tehi-ehance. Many people will tell you that temper ance is making great strides in England. I believe it is among certain classes of the population. There is not nearly so much drinking among the middle and upper classes as there used to be, but I fail to see much difference among that class of the population for whom temperance legislators strive most to legislate for. The great mass of the workers who support the publio bouses, and whose earnings go to swell the budgets of successive Chancellors of the Exchequer by the largest returns from beer and spirits, are all boozers from tbe word go, and you might ns well try and rob the tigress of her cub as make any serious at tempt to "rob the poor man of his beer." True there are cocoa rooms and tearooms and all the various aids to temperance scattered over the metropolis, nnd they all pay good dividends. But they are.mere islands in the great ocean of booze Which surrounds them on every side. MACLEOD. A USEFUL LIFE ENDED.

He received a call from Allegheny in 1839, and after a fivejdays' journey by stage over the mountains, he arrived in Alle gheny to take charge of the German Evan gelical Protestant Church, on Ohio street. In the great Pittsburg fire of '45 he gave a helping hand, and durintr ihe terrihlo cholera rage his kindness was felt by the people.

The Lad Will Probably Die as the JBesnlt of His injuries. A LTHCMNG YBEI KARK0WL1 AYERTED Wilkesbaeee, June 15. This com munity was thrown into a state of great ex citement, which culminated in the arrest of Jacob Ackerman, a farmerof Sugar Loaf township, near this city, who had been guilty of a most inhuman and diabolical outrage upon his 11-year-old son, Jake, which will probably result in the boy's death. Mr. Ackerman has a violent and uncov ernable temper, and when he becomes en raged he is an object of terror to all around him. Yesterday he became angered at some trifling act of disobedience on the part of the little fellow, and as his passion found vent in violent language be became almost beside himself in a frenzy of wrath. He was not satisfied to castigato the child. He de termined upon torture. WOBK OP A FIEND. He therefore went out to his barn and ob tained two pieces of scantling and fastened them firmly together in the form of a saw buck cross. Then when he had thoroughly tested it, to see that it would withstand heavy pressure, he ordered his son down into the cel lar of the house, and then followed the lit tle fellow with the implement of torture. He then caueht hold ot Jake, and laying the cross down on the floor took the boy in his arms and placed him upon it. He strapped the child's arms to the top parts of the uprights and pinioned his legs to tbe bottom parts, and then with refinement of cruelty affixed the boy's neck immovably to the structure. Then he lifted child and cross upright, and regarded the work of crucifixion with diabolical complacency. The poor little fellow, in his agony, cried for relief, and the mother and ihe rest of the family pleaded with the inhuman man to release the child, but their entreaties only seemed to intensify his frenzied rage. He went at them furiously, threatening their lives and making menacing movements toward them. Finally he procured a hatchet and drove them all out of the house. They fled away in terror, with the cries of the lit tle sufferer ringing in their ears. HATCHET IN HAND. Then, with the hatchet still in his hand, he returned to the cellar and stood guard over the suffering boy, threatening to kill anybody who should come near. Finally, when the little fellow ceased his struggles through sheer weakness, finding no one was about to disturb him or release the child, he sauntered away, leaving the crucified child to its fate. Toward evening a little daughter came home from the silk mill, where she had been at work during the day. She heard groans emanating from, the cellar. She went down and found her poor brother iu his awful agony and position. For seven hours his body had been suspended on the framework. He was rescued more dead than alive. It is not expected he can live. These facts were brought out before a Justice of- tbe Peace, who issued a warrant for Ackerman's arrest, and to-day he was lodged in jail. The neighbors were on the point of.organizing a posse to lynch the in human father when the officers of the law interfered and locked him in the county jau. DEOWtfED WHILE BATHING. Tbomns Morris, of AlcCord Street, Disap pears la Mght of His Companions A Skid Upturns, bat 111 Occupant Rescued Other Sunday Accidents. Thomas Morris, aged 11 years, was bath ing in the Monongahela river, near the Eliza Furnace, with a number of companions yesterday afternoon about 3 o'clock. He could swim very little, and got out into the current where the water is very deep. He called for help, but before any oi his com panions could reach him he had disappeared for the last time. The river below was dragged, and his body was recovered about 6 o'clock a short distance from where he had gone down. The body was placed in patrol wagon No. 13 and taken to his home on Mc Cord street, near South Twenty-seventh street, and the Coroner notified. The in-J quest will be held this morning. A skiff containing three young men capsized in the Monongahela river near the Point bridge, on tbe Pittsburg side, but luckily several parties in another skiff were close enough to rescue them betore they were drowned. None of tbe young men could swim. Willie Boyce, a boy aged 8 years, fell from the top of a board pile at the Man chester sawmill, a distance of 15 feet, break ing his right arm. Shortly after midnight Saturday Henry Boge fell into a sewer drop on Spring Garden avenue, Allegheny, and was unable to extricate himself. A pedestrian discov ered him and sent word to patrol stable No. 1, when tbe officers responded and pulled him out He was quite severely injured about the legs and had to be hauled to his home, 99 High street, in the patrol wagon. John Bogan and wife, of 28 Carson street, while crossing Liberty street, near Seventh street, about 10 o'clock, were knocked down by a horse and buggy driven by Henry Frommer, of Magee street. Captain TJnter baum witnessed the accident and placed Frommer under arrest. Mr. and Mrs. Eogan called at Central station a little later nnd requested Frommer's release, say ing they had not been injured and believed that Frommer was not to blame. Their ap peal did not have the desired effect, how ever, and Frommer will have a hearing this morning for reckless driving. The Coroner will hold an inquest this morning on the death of James Swan, a Pennsylvania Bailroad brakeman, who was struck by a train at Torrens at 12:30 yester day morning. The deceased lived at Irwin station and was 23 years of age. He died ten minutes after being taken to the hos pital. Thomas Hanley, a laborer employed at Moorhead and McCleane's mill repairing one of tbe furnaces, had his left foot badly crushed by one of the large grate bars fall ing on it.
