\o Cat In Wage*.
Without assuming to speak with au
thority as to what the U. S. Steel
Corporation intends to do. it can be
said with confidence that Judge Gary
and his associates have adopted a
plan about us follows:
There will be no cut in wages until
the situation demonstrates the need
and then the facts will be laid be
fore the employes for them to Judge
as to the justice of and need for the
worker accepting lower compensation.
The corporation, in view of the
impossibility to keep steel prices*
up to war levels, has begun to
bring them down to what is the
The first rut came in December
and amounted to about ten per cent
in various articles from billets to
There will be another cut in the
next thirty or forty-live days.
This will be followed, it is ex
pected in April or about the 1st
of May. by another cut. That will
end the price-cutting.
There arc unfilled orders booked,
together with the business that
must come to the corporation mean
time. to keep the entire plant en
gaged up to May.
Considerable of the production be
tween now and May will not be at
much of a profit. Dividends will be
reduced or the surplus of the corp
oration will have to be drawn upon
to meet them.

About the time the third cut iti
prices is made by the corporation
the facts will be presented to the
It will be shown that the corpora-1
tion has paid workers liberally
while conditions justified it: that
wages were increased again and
again. Xovv. it will b.> shown, con

tion will say that it cannot pay top
wages and keep its whole army of
workers .-ngag^d. It will ask the
men to deride whether to close
down various plants and reduce pro
duction radically or accpt what
ever cut in wages is necessary to
keep the corporation going at ca
pacity and employing its full force.

The corporation will show what

them if they will take a little of
If the workers decide a reduction
in wages is warranted \va?;es will
be cut t?? what both sides consider
a fair scale. If the workers balk
the company will close down such
plants as are not necessary to meet
ing the orders they have booked
or they are able to book at prices
that return a profit.
What will the answer of labor
More than tfft.nOO employes of the
steel corporation are stockholders.
They have been drawing dividends,
big dividends, for years. For a
couple of years back they have been
getting 17 per cent per annum on
their stock. They have had seven
increases in pay within a com
paratively short period. *
Will they decide to close down
a considerable part of the great
business. limit production. limit
profit, limit dividends, limit pros
perity. or will they say u wage re
duction following so many wage
advances is just.
What a remarkable record this
steel corporation presents. As de
signed by J. 1*. Morgan it was a
holy horror. In real value is rep
resented little more than what
there was of its bonds and part of
its preferred stock. Its common
stock of hundreds of millions was
water, nothing but water.
And yet good management has
made it the most successful cor
poration of the world.
Whoever conceived yie plan
whereby it was made possible for
the employe of the Steel Corpora
tion from the highest to the lowest
to become a partner in the business
on easier terms than the general
public did a great work.
The partnership between capital
and labor has saved untold millions
to the corporation. The concern
never has had a .strike, never 'any
thing approaching one except a
slight affair now or then in some
It has been an insurance against
labor trouble that is of incalculable
In addition, it has stabilized l*bor.
Where th* worker has his money in
vested he has to remain and look after
In m-u.y industrial lines the labor
turn-over is 100 per cent or more a
year, owing to the way labor drifts
' from one employment to another. The
| Steel Corporation has reduced this
I migratory influence greatly and there
by has profited largely. ^
There is no better example in Amer
ica of the virtue there is in a part
nership between capital and labor
'than is furnished by this great cor
| If there had been antagonism It to
possible, if not probable, the com
pany would have been wrecked. In
stead it has flourished amazingly and ]
labor has prospered with it.
The Steel Corporation has paid out
more than $$50,000,000 in dividends.
JGrery year labor's proportion of the
"dividend increases and seems destined
The corporation ?r^s a wretched
financial make-shift as fabricated. Jt
has been made a marvel of strength,
nationally, industrially and financial
ly by capital and labor working to- '
grether for their mutual welfare anaj
Watch the labor situation as han-1

point the way for the whole country. I

I was called upon a few da> a ago at a
j relief association room by a woman
whose appearance made it unnecessary
, for her to say that she was suffer

j needed, her reply was. "I need s me

i scanty food as I possess so that my
children may not starve, and there is
? none left for me."
Heard Mmllnr Cum.
The relief representative to whom
I this statement was made had heard
1 of a number of cases of this kind,
j She realized immediately that ihe
I woman who pleaded for bread was
, the wife of a soldier. This woman
j was asked to tell her story and she
said th?at when her husband was

in th^ iirmj for they could g*t

sured would be promptly put into

no funds were received from The
govVrnment on account of the allot

once more until they were all gone.
Thereafter little articles of the
household were exchanged at the
pawnbrokers, but even these were
'exhausted. Th<* case was investi
gated and it was speedily found that
the woman had not exaggerated.
Not one cent h*id been paid to her
by the government upon account of
the allotment made by her husband
when he became a soldier.

! Many instances of this kind could be
I reported so that managers of relief

! essary as it is for the I'nited States
to feed those who are starving across
' the sea. nevertheless it is the pre-emi
I nent duty of the government which
j has funds in plenty, which pfedged it
self to turn over to families of soldiers
the fixed allotment of their pay, to re
i lieve the sufferings which- these fami
lies are now experiencing, even before
we undertake to relieve those who are
suffering in other lands.
j Many of the soldiers do not com
plain that they are still without their
I pay. many of the families who have
! leceived no money from the govern
I ment maintain silence, struggling in
I one way or another to get along. It Is
j especially significant of mismanage
I ment. understanding, confusion or inef
J ficiency in some one or more of the
j government departments, that soldiers
j and their families are held up whereas
no trouble of this kind has been found
J to exist in the navy. The sailors have
I leceived their pay promptly.
And so it is said that if it were pos
I sible to pay the sailors and to furnish
i funds to the families of the sailors, it
j should be possible promptly to pay the
j soldiers and to see to it that the fami
? lies of the soldiers to whom the gov
ernment is a debtor should receive
I funds sufficient in amount to prevent
j them from making such pathetic ap
| peals for food as some of these fami
lies have been compelled to do.
Change that Is Needed.
j Some who are familiar with busi
ness and industrial executive man
agement as this has been in the pa?t.
' assert that it Is vital, if the United
| States is to maintain industrial
I strength, that some of the methods
and conditions which have hitherto
I prevailed in various industrial activi
II ties be radically changed. One of the
j changes which must be established If
j there is to be industrial peace and
'prosperity will involve the elimination
'of underhand competition character

Probably the better way to illus
i trate some of the practices and
[methods which in the past have pre
vailed will be by narrating some con
i crete examples.
Some time ? ago an apparatus wa$
! offered to the managers of one of the
' largest American railroad companies.
(It purported favorably to effect the
mechanism of the cars. It related to
the journals and the bearings upon
which the journals rest. A test was
made of the apparatus and It was
found to be woefully lacking in all
the qualities that w?re claimed for It.
The president of the railroad com
pany, a man of national reputation
and of high character, was not satis
fied with the result of the test. He
therefore caused a careful, almost
microscopic, examination to be made
and then it was discovered that some
one had Injected sand Into the bear
ings and Journals thereby creating
excess! vt amount of friction. m^t
Ordfm ]*e?? Test.
The president of the railroad sum
moned his chief mechanic and com
manded him to make a new test
with n?"w bearings and Journals, be
ing scrupulous to watch the ap
paratus from the time It was in
stalled until the completion of the
test. This was done and the second
test made it evident that the ap
paratus was capable of accompli#^
in* all that had been claimed for^ft.
Somebody presumsbly associated
with a rival manufacturing corpora
tion had undoubtedly cauaed this
malicious, even criminal Tnethod to
be made use of by which it would
appear that the apparatus Wus
In Hoston several years ago -an
arrangement was completed whers?*
by a syndicate agreed to purchase
certain gold min?-s in the Far Went
Specimens of the ore were exhibited
and these were put in strong bag*
so as to be placed before com
petent assayists. The assays showed
that the ore was wonderfully rich
in gold, so rich that suspicion was
And then careful scrutiny was
made which resulted In the disco**
ery that someone had thrust an in
jecting needle through the bags and
in that way had actually squirted
fluid gold, so to speak upon the ore.
This was a new method of "salting
gold mines." In the Far West It
was not uncommon for those who
nought to make a great market for
gold properties to cause fine par
ticles of gold to be 11 red from shot
guns into the ore.
Then again. It is the firm belief that
corporations should see to it that
more competent expert examination of
inventions or apparatus should be
made than has often been the ease in
j the past. To illustrate
I At the time the electric furnace was
first offered to American manufac
turers of uteel and iron, the patent*
Jin the United States for this furnace
were submitted to the manager* of
one of the great steel and iron indu*
| tries. The experts were railed in. The
managers were told that they could
have the patents for fifty thousand
Hut the experts reported that the
process was of no account. Since
that time the managers of this ????
poration havejjaid lom^w I at in ?-*- j

upon the report of experts ano trnHi
