BpteUd Corrutxmdcnce of the Intallacnecr
London, Exolakd, Jan. 2. ? More
than nine-tenths of all the tremendous
quantity of ale, beer, wine and liquor
annunlljr consumed by the men, women
and children of Great Britain, is served
by women.
There are nearly 200,(00 women tbua
engaged every day in the year. These
are, as a class, the prettiest and tidiest
woihen in the tbree kingdoms. Whatever
their relations to society at large,
they have characters good or bad, man
mrsand morals, interesting or otherwise,
and sou's saved or unsaved,
though the clergy, church societies and
miminnariesneverBeem to have troubled
themselves about the latter.
During the first half of the past ten
years I had opportunity for frrquent
stuoy oi tnese sriusn usrmaias. uunug
the ]nut five yeare, I lmve been able to
closely observe tbein nearly every day
and evening of my life. At first thought,
many may regard them aa hardly meriting
serious consideration. It seems to
ui? tbey are really worth talking about,
Eniclfnh literature is lull of the barmaid.
Prose and poetry are redolent of
ber. Those rare old fellows wbo lived,
or rather slept, "in cbambets" and dined
and wined in public houses while male
ing most of the books which last, all
along down through the seventeenth
and eighteenth centurleB, and even as
near to us aa the first third of the preseat
century, seem to have drawn their
inspiration largely from the bar-room
fount. Indeed, if we will be wholly
honest about it, English literature, the
sweetest and grandest on earth, and the
uniiiot havo ever known close fellowship.
And even a little stress should be
laid upon the matter, we owe to the
vt-ry presence of the barmaids of those
days preservation of thesweetest fancies,
the most sparkling humor, the most
charming situations, and a no mean
mini her of the most chaste and pathetic
incidents known to ballad poetry and
fiction. This is not defensive of the
oarumid. it is merely historic of her
i fleet on and presence In literature. And
I havo often thonght because it was no;
because ttfe public housa of old and the
barmaid of old became British institutions,
unconsciously though uuiversally
grounded in the human heart, they
>,? *<? h,??f<ifrDrl flloiKoallnn anil ilunav
On this line, there ore two things
About the British people which we in
America utterly fail to comprehend.
One in the Briton's passionate loyalty to
anything sanctioned by prestige and ,
aanctitied t#precedent into the status ,
of on institution?a .British Institution.
In general, all the more honor to hint ,
for that; for in steadfastness and loyalt>
o a nation's own, are preserved all good ,
things, if a few bad ones happen to re- ,
main. Another is, the average Briton, ,
high or low, is a being who will retain ,
and sustain all "rights/' good or bad, ,
which literature, society, precedent ana (
Kovemment have marked out for him, j
with a pertinacity and bravery which ,
puts to beggarly shamo the indifference
of most American people to all manner j
of governmental, monopolistic and other ,
encroachment. ,
This may seem going a long way for ,
trivial sequence. But it ia undeniably |
true that because the barmaid was long ,
ago elevated into a British Institution ,
through English literature; because the
older any sentiment or thing, barring the ,
barmaid herself, is in Britain the more |
endearingly it is prized; and because ,
your British noblemen or workmen will ,
have his wine or "bitter" from the hand
of a tap-room divinity, whether all the ]
world like it or not, the prototype of the ,
American "bartender" is here nnkuown, {
and 200,000 women serve 20,000,000 Biit- ,
tab people with their brews and spirits
to-day. There are other effects, such aP
the rapid national increaao in the con* 1
Humption of liquors, the increasing 1
power in politics and legislation of the
liquor interests; and, worse than all, the 1
startling increase of liquor-drinking by J
dll clashes of British women; upon each
of which vast and sad volumes miyht be !
written. But the great host of British
oarwaids is what the British people
liko and will have; and, being accounted 1
for, it only remains to speak of this particular
class as it individually and col- (
lectively exists.
KuraJ England is a thing of the past;
and there never was a rural Scotland or j
a rural Ireland where the sweet old inn 1
and the sweet vonng barmaid were
havens and aud objects of material and
ethical delight. With the end of the 1
coaching days was an end of the inns,
aud with them, long; after the old Lon- '
don type had gone, faded away the
cherry-cheeked Bubo of the rural hos 1
telry. To be sure, if you are a genuine !
tramp, who will seek odd nooks of 1
provincial England and Scotland for 1
very love of adventure, you will now 1
and then still find a gentle being in cap !
and apron, whose very preaence behind
the cupboard-like bar fills your mind ,
with all manner of chivalrous fancies,
until the whole locality takes on a mag- ;
ical seeming no of sunshine and flowers. <
But if you remain long enough^ you find
that even this rural rarity is already 1
tainted by modem unrest. A farmer's ]
daughter, the child of some castle gamekeeper,
of a widow lodge-keeper or ol
some underline of the manor demesne, 1
aha has already her ambition fiexd on
Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool or Lon
don, or even the bright, busy railway
refreshment rooms; and a year therea'ter,
you will find ner, saucy and pert,
straight and lofty, sage and calm, one of
the great army of public house barmaids,
at "fourteen bob a week and found."
Probably one-half of the wbolo are recruited
from this source. The other
half aro from the eternal overplus of
city-born girls, who, without positive
immoral tendencicB, have overborne restraint,
and with much vigor, without
sea; in sentiment and that roving consciousness
springing from the true virtue
of the glory of her aex, have forced their
<futr tntn thia monnnr/if lifafifid omnlAv.

meat.
Koine curious facta have developed on
certain interesting lines in my iivn jeers'
study of these peoplo in England, Ireland
and Scotland. As a rule, in my
wanderings, I bavs sought tbe humbler
i class of inns for honsing; not only from
motives of comfort, but as best furnishing
various and vagarious forms for
cbmacter study; inns on a par, ai nearly
hs can be compared, with our American
holds of the "second class." Coming
again and aiain to many of these, I have
secured such friendships and confidences
as gained for mo, in many instances, the
agreeable position of "one of the family"
with the inn's host or hostess. .Not
being fitted by inclination or habit for
honora in front oi these ban, which I
have always found gains respect trom
even those who exist by them, I reached
many a snug corner within them.
There, in the landlord's or landiady'a

riading jpy mail, or scanning the

Universally called; and, during their
motuenU of real between customers' demands,
1 have reaeivefl from British barmaids
themselves innumerable kindly,
honest and altogether womanly revelation!
aa to tbeir previous condition, wltb
the mode and motive of tbeir Uvea.
One of tbe first aeries o! careful Inquiries
made waa in reference to tbe
sources of supply of females tor this vocation.
Who were these bright, handsome,
graceful women 7 What manner
of social condition was that out of which
they came 7 How could 200,000 women,
apparently fit to grace respectable and
refined liotnea, assume inch queation*bio
employment M thin of Uii'ir own volition
7 Of what (toll, iu tlie guise of
woman, with <11 of woman's wit, selfpoise
and winsoineutes iu phjtical
graces, could so vuit and anomalous a
a class be created? These and many
similar speculations along with ceaseless
personal inquiries resulted in the
folio wing facta and figures being scattered
through my note {(bolts. I do not
know whether theee aversgns on about
1,700 will hold true with 200,000. They
at least serve as a basis for reputable
conjecture; and bring the subject, in its
entirety, home to all who give thought
to sociological questions with unusual
impreasiveness.

"You bavo a great many women in r
America at the present time known hh i
'ugitatoro' and 'reformers,' have you not ? e
And has not each one u mission or p
aclieme, ora divine call, togailop, plunge \
and cavort about, shrieking out ail man b
ner of notes of warning regarding the a
enslavetnentof her sex?
"dull do no* these females sound timbrels,
beat tom-toms, and override every
uuuK eaiauusneu, lenuer ana Bacreo, in ^
ttn effort to attract attention to them- B,
Helves, until the grind true wives and c,
mothers of your country are whipped tj
into partial endorsement, the clergy f{
bullied into silence and your editors, 0
through a forgivable chivalry, influenc- b
ed into leading then a quasi support?
"Well, air, precisely the suae female,
or lather unfemale, qualities, which, ci
through these mental harridans, are oc V
uumplishing the gradual unsozing of fi
American women, and tho revolution- w
izing and destruction oi the American it
tiome, are at' the the root of our cursed ?
barmaid system. It is simply a differant
torm ol expression of the samo erig- V
inttl evil?a female nossion for some 0
manner of notoriety. Your over-shrewd E
ind under-principled American female D
who cannot endorso home-making, B
through the pretense of some heaven in- ri
Jorsed mission, at once enters upon a
jareer of home-breaking. She poises
ind poses, higgles and wriggles along a
tamut of'isms' and 'ista' from female pi
iuiTrage past a score of reforms to Ohris- J,,
Jan Science, theosophy and spiritualism a1
into the capacious bosom of the Over- p
Soul itself, meantime pausing anywhere
jubt so long as Bhe may continue a dieurbing
element; ever thrilled and ecstatic
over any manner of notoriety conducing
to what she hysterically imagines
has become a 'career.' Our barmaids
ire just that sort of male females; proud
af tap-room publicity; eager for tawrdy
notoriety; consumed with ambition fjr
\ public career. But we are the most
[oriuoate nation. With us, rigid and
nealthful social limitations force these
characters into a proper place at once.
Your female birds of prey dtfile and
[atten upon your tenderest and most Haired
social and domestic institutions. H^are,
impinge only upon our lowest n<
national weaknesses." p
Many will consider this British corn- to
parison and estimate of our suffering ?
iisterhood as a very severe one. Some 81
will be ungallnnt enough to regard it as ce
in unjust classification of British barmaidH
themselves. As a rule, i have
[ound them hard-working women. Few b;
iver know a holiday. They are on their d>
feet from twelve to Bixteen hours per ei
lay. Whatever their natural tendencies,
ihcyare perforce honest. Tho British
?nr system is entirely different from Al
)ure, and still retains much of the flavor **
)f the old custom of the publican and P1
ms wife sitting in their own private c0
room and serving customers with
liquors through a little shelf-bottomed tb
window; while tho publican, his wife, 10
r some member of his family, is never ?{
ibsent from the bar during business B.
nours. This is much protection to thv tii
[jeraonality of tho barmaid. Though ff
you may regsrd her as lost to all moral 0r
jense, and tlio significance of words,
ihrough the endless repetition of in- Jjj
famous language in her presence b* c.i
irunken brutes, brainless cads and w
tlcver roues, in tho main slio remains
tneaaureably free from rough treatment,
rtie modern British bar is practically a
wailed extension of the ancient British if
bar window. There is no access to it te
from the public room. It is as high as
j-our chin. The barmaid herself, be- m
uind her silver beer and ale pumps, w
stands two feet above you, a charming
study in black, white and carnation?a
hlnnb nprfirt. illtino trnvn a <1ninlv i.
white apron, the (jtory ai tbe roso in, or <j>
on, her cheeks and lips. 'I(
She It, in (act, just as most men love "?
to see woman; suggestive ol domesticity
in her raiment, charming in figure and
lace. But after a day and evening of
banter and wiles, through which acorn T
of pockets bare been emptied, brains
beclouded and her master farther enriched,
the highest and lowest are re- n
tuorselessly shot from sight of her smil- a
ing face. It is a sad, wear itd, tired face a
now. She is prauffcally a prisoner iu
there. Sbe lives with tbe publican's si
family. She goes to a room not fit for a
dog's keeping, snatches a few hours' ,t
sleep and is again st berpoat behind tbe ri
bar to cheer and wheedle tbe trembling })
drunkards of tbe early morning hours. ,j
tier meals are snatched between fero- fc
cious rushes of customers at tbe bar. J?
She must know everybody ibecognizant ?
of something about everything; have a n
soothing word for tbe rnm-bedeviled
tempers; placidly listen to discussions '
of herself like those upon an animal; el
accept direct and Infamous ineult with J
invitation in her eyta and honeyed *
words npon her lips; sympathetically p
receive confidencesof the most sacred or ?
damnable character; in brief, to tbe end
ol her days, remain a marble Venus lor
tbe worship and slavery of Bacchus' o
crazed and maddened victims.
For all this she receives from six to Jj
twenty shiliiugper week and "keep." J
Rome masters provide gowns and aprons, a
Tbe inconceivable degradation of her i
calling can only be hinted at in the c
statement of fact that there is but one c
place in Great Britain?at the refresh- c
ment bars of leading railway stations?
where refusal to Berve one who insnlts '
ber would not lead to her immediate dls- j
ijharge without "a character." Tbe low- t
est grade in ber vocation Is among the t
sailors' "Pubs," in the slums of Maryle- \
bone, Liverpool, and East End, London; i
the highest, in the gorgeous London [
West Kud cafes. What become of them 7 i
Many die at an early age of long die- j
eases, the result of their foul environ- ;
ment. Few drift Into the unnameable ,
classes. Ever seeing tbe worst side of j
men, they are armed, though roughly, *
against temptation. Some become man- :
aeeressea of inns, "Pubs," of railway
refreshment rooms and cafes with >
a bevy oi younger barmaids under them,
ol cheap museums, and all manner of enterprises
at seaside resorts. Many marry t
reputable men, but drift back into their >

Baltimore wed one of the most beautiful
and good of their kind in the three kingdom*?as
Irish barmaid at Cork. No
honest man can apeak of them unkindly
aa a class. The power behind them is responsible
for the evil they accomplish.
That la incalculable. Because of their
presence, countless Britisb women Unit
it easy to become drunkards. Because of
their sgreeability, sympathetic kindlines
and outright blandishments, all
grades and conditions of men are more
and more enriching the British dram
shop with all tbat ebotold preserve and
