"Probably the most perfect spotter

"While It also acts ns a defense
against thefts by employees, this sys

so to speak, a diary of the disposition,

coustitute the vast human machinery
of the corporation. The feeling which
culminates in a general strike Is not
the result of one act alone, but a slow
growth made up of many grievances.
real or fancied.
"To keep track of the shifting mental
attitude of his employees is the aim of
this railroad president. If a certain
division superintendent has made him
self unpopular with his subordinates,
information to that effect comes 'by
underground wire to the central ofSce,
and the matter is taken under advise

road attempts to stir -up discontent by
indammatory talk, his views soon,
reach the official ear. Every leading
spirit in the employees organization is
known to the president, who also
knows whether, in case of trouble, tho
man is to be reckoned upon as a con
servative or a radical.
"Sometimes this works out the man's
career in a manner quite incomprehen
Kible to him. For instance, Night
Watchman Brown is shifted without
cause that he can fathom from one di

know that rumors of trouble in that di

and that he himself, being down in the

"Several years ago at a time of gen

got no less than five reports from its
confidential men informing them that
an employee who was several degrees
higher in the secret service of the road

"This was true. Matters had so

That spotters should know each other
