Tha delinquent company last year had

There haa been a marked falling off In

only on those applications which were ac

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Aug. 22. (Special.)
Labor conditions in the Iron and steel In
dustries of the United States, In contrast
with those In the I'nlted Kingdom and Eu
ropean countries generally, are discussed
at great length by the commission appointed
by the Brttlah Iron Trade association,
which recently visited the United States ana
thoroughly studied Its great iron and steel
This commission consisted of J. 8. Jeans,
whose name Is already well known to the
people of the United Stales as an authority
upon these subjects; Axel Sahlln, an expert
In blast furnace work; Ebenezer Parkea,
whose special study wss sheet and tar-m'li
practice, and Enoc James, who gave special
attention to the steel Industry, while Mr.
Jeans' special work wss to report upon th
general economic and Industrial conditions.
The report of this commission, according
to some extracts which have reached the
treasury bureau of statistics, points out
that In the United States the Iron and steel
Industries are face to face with conditions
that make both the dearest and cheapest
labor at present to be found In the world
the dearest In point of nominal remunera
tion and the cheapest in Industrial and eco
"The workmen at American mills," saya
Mr. James in his share of the report, "are
generally supposed to be working much
harder than they do In this country (Eng
land), but this Is not my own view. After
much conversation with many men In vari
ous branches who had been employed in
lmllar works in England, and some of
them subject to my own control, the con
tusion I have arrived at Is that the
American workmen do not work so hard
as the men In England. They have to be
ttentlve In guiding operations and quick
In manipulating levers and similarly easy
work. They are also much more desirous
of getting out larger quantities than in
England. They are better paid and more
regular In their attendance at the works,
loss of time through drinking bablta or
otherwise not being tolerated."
Ame -lean Workman Ambitious.
Mr. Sahlln In his aectlon of the report
aays that tha American workman generally
spires to the higher grades of labor, leav
ing the purely manual labor to workmen
from other countries. "Thus It Is," he says.
that around American blast furnaces the
American Is found In a vory decided minor
ity. Ha may be a foreman, master me
chanic, blast engineer, locomotive driver or
tova tender, but he will not work eighty-
four bours per week shoveling ore or wheel-
g scrip. For these duties ara employed Is
tba south the negroes and at tho northern
furnaces Immigrants, mostly Irish, Slavs or
Itallaca." , '
On this question of higher grade work and
higher grade wages of American workmen
attention la called to the fact that in cer
tain works Polish and Hungarian laborers
were receiving $1 to $1.60 per day, while
American rollers working alongside of them
were receiving on tha average $12 per day
of eight hours.
The report quotea Mr. Carnegie aa stat-
ng recently that the aversio -wages of men
in his employment at Homestead was $3 per
day, or an average of 187 'per annum,
against an average of 68 per annum as
the. earnings of Iron and steel workers In
Lancashire and 79 per annum received by
the steel rollers In South Walea. On tha
question of cost of living .Mr. Joans de
clares, aa tha result of his Inquiries, that
'the average American workman, in most
of the essentials of life, can live, mutatis
mutandis, as cheaply aa he can In tha old
Human Factor Paramount.
"The Importance of tha human factor,"
says the London Statist In summarising
this report, "Is fully realized by all the
membera of the commission. It Is all very
well to admire American plants, the In
genuity of machine tools, the devices for
saving labor and ao forth. But, as Mr.
Sahlln remarka In his special report, 'It Is
not the guns which win the battle, but tha
men who atand behind them.' What the
American admires and honors Is the ability
to do; that capacity in a man, through bis
own sagacity, nerve, enterprise and skill to
create and employ a fortune. Nobody la
above hla work. Everybody works, and for
the sake of work, and thus has been pro
duced In America within a generation an
industrial potentiality more wonderful and
mora to be feared than all the factories and
machinery and "plants' that theaa worker
'It cornea to thla, then, that American
labor la not more efficient, though it la
better paid, than ours, and that American
manufacturing development Is due to tha
persistent, unresting industry which onca
characterised the Briton, but for which
trade unionism and athletics have given an
apparently growing distaste.
"All the reporters, however, seem struck
with the strenuoueness of American life.
Tha comparative absence of a leisured class
la toted as one of the prominent char
acterlstlcs of the principal cities and in
dustrial centers of the United States. In

regular business, or who Is not concerned

a nsn out of water. Nowhere, we are
assured, la the struggling youth more kindly
