-+- THE DRINK QUESTION IN INDIA. At the annual meeting of the Salford Temper- ance Union held on Saturday, Mr Bipin Chan- qta. Pal, an undergraduate of Oxford, briefly addressed the meeting on the subject of tem- perance work in India. He said that drunk- enness was disappearing from among the high- er classes of natives, but it had taken firm hold on the lower classes. He complaSned that liquor shops were often thrust upon villages against their desire, and that the Indian Gov- ernment were anxious to increase their Excise revenue, ragerdless of the oonsquences to the people. Englishmen were responsible for the introduction of drinking into India. With the Bible came the bottle, and Milton and Madeira kept congenial company. We ought, he said, to -,pare no effort to undo the evil we had done in India, and all the more because the natives had no voice in the administration of the coun- try.
