Heretofore, when Englishmen have
undertaken to explain why we Ameri
cans compete against them In the mar
kets of the world, they have attributed
our success to the skill of our work
men and the superiority of our ma
chine tools. In a recent Interview Sir
Charles Ilercsford has ludulgcd In a
different explanation, he attributing
our success to our business methods.
He said: "America excels In adminis
tration. We do not know how to ad
minister here. Our workmen are as
good as theirs, but our administrations
aro feeble. Our companies want lords
and commoners as directors, who know
nothing about business. Yours demand
straight business men, who not only
know, but put their money Into the
concerns of which they are directors.
You put your brightest men Into busi
ness. We put them Into politics, the
navy and the army. That has got to
be changed, not for the sake of .money
It makes for the Individual, but for the
general good of the c-iuntry. When I
return I hope to have a lot more Infor
mation In my pocket which will further

where." What Lord Beresford says
about lack of administration In Eng
land may be so, but what he says about
English workmen being as skillful as
American workmen cannot be so, else
there would not be a delegation of fifty
or more at present in this country, to
learn how American workmen handle
machine tools so well and productively.
But this Is not to the point What
Lord Beresford says about American
business administration Is true. The

LABOR'S RIGHT TO COMBINE.
By Stnitor Hoar, cf Aaitarsnserrs.
I cannot tee why If capital may com
bine In corporations, labor may not com
bine lu labor unions. Every corporation
nud every partnership Is an aggregate
of Individuals. So when a single work
man desires employment he has to make
his bargain not with one employer, but
with many employers acting aa one.
He Is also nt another disadvantage. The
thing he has to sell Is his day's work. If
be goes down In the morning to make
bis engagement, the thing he Is to sell
self ATon noAn. is perishing with every hour of dclny In
making bis contract These associations of capital fro
jucutly extend through the whole country and control under
one bend nnd with one will every establishment In tbe coun
try lu which a skilled workman might hope to find em
ployment. So I can see no reason why tbe workman should
not combine to make his bargain as to tbe rate of wages.
as to the hours of labor aud ns to tbe comfort and safety
or nis occupation.
Hut, on the other hand, he has no right to Interfere by
violence with the freedom of nny workman who does not
choose to belong to his union. Of course where men net
In masses and are under excitement there will bo ocea
lonal and sporadic Instances even of unlawful and violent
action. These will always occur whle human nature re
mains unchanged and are not to be considered too seriously
or too harshly. Hut a republic cannot live If any body of
men undertake to Impose their own will upon the lawful
freedom of others.
Subject to this condition I believe the sympathy of all
true Americans Is on tbo side of labor and Its attempt to
better Its condition. Unless the American workman shall
have good wages and leisure and comfort, shall have books
In bis borne, shall send his children to school, call provide
longer worth living In. Capital nnd wealth will In tho end
take care of themselves, but to tbe elevation of labor,
which Is but another name for tbe elevation of citizenship,

PRAISE AND HUME UOIM Or VALUE.
Br James r, O'nrlsn,
Tho two greatest factors In securing tbo best
woik from employes nro praise and blaini. I am
sure Hint neither nlono will answer tho purpose.
The man who must bo scolded and found fault
with cotitlnunlly Is of little value lu nny position.
Ho Is In disfavor With his superiors In olltcti bo
cause thry cannot trust lilm to perform his duties
faithfully. As for the mnn himself, his many
delinquencies cause lilm to lose confidence In his
own ability; he becomes careless and forgetful, nnd finally
loses his place altogether. A too frequeut use of praise In
the miiuagemeut of employes Is productive of undesirable
results of a different character. The man who Is coullnu
ally praised after n white becomes Imbued with the Idea
that ho Is "IT." He has nu exaggerated Idea of his own
Importance nnd Is liable to assume n patronising nlr toward
his associates nnd customers that Is not at all desirable
In fact Is decidedly harmful. Much n man Is almost certain
lu tbe end to become so Intolerable that ho Is nt last uotl
fled thnt his service are uo longer required.
Too much praise or too much blnme Is therefore equally
harmful, though In n different way. A Judicious use of
both Is highly desirable. When a salesman makes a good
snlc, It pleases him to receive a word of commendation
from the manager and It spurs lilm to do better. On tho
other band. If ho Is Impollto to n customer or does some
thing he ought not to do. ho should bo reproved gently but
firmly. This will make lilm more careful lu the future.
aud In the end ho will bo more vnluabto to himself and the
Much depends uHn the manager himself. If he pos
sesses good common senso, has a fair kuowlcdgo of human
nature, and has personal magnetism, ho will have uo
trouble with his employes. If, on the other hand, he Is
unjust, hard, nnd unsympathetic, he will be unable to keep
good salesmen or saleswomen In his employ for any length
of time. No one of spirit will submit to being cursed and
reproved before his shopmates by the man-from whom ho
receives hi orders. Dissatisfaction Is certain to show It
self among the other employes, nnd tho entire force soon
