The Case of General fllles.
IX VIEW of the probable early
ami Involuntary retirement of
Nelson A. .Miles from the com
mand, of the army, much discus
sion dlVliIs wur record lias broken out.
This seems to us unnecessary. Gen
eral Jliles' valor as a soldier and the
lirillianoy and usefulness of many of
Ills achievements are not in question
and no good can come from involving
them in the and smoke of impas
sioned controversy. If he shall be
placed on the letlrod list. It will be
for the .simple and suflielent reason
that he and his superior officers, the
recretary of war and president of the
' Tutted .States, cannot get alonjv lo-Ki-lher.
The fault for such a deplorable state
of affairs may be his or their's, or
partly both; no amount of newspaper
wlnd-jammlUK can thresh that to a
finish. It is sulliclent in the eye of
military discipline that, in the judg
ment of those above. General Miles has
ceased to work in harmony. Their's
is the responsibility. Their's should
be freedom of choice In the selection
of Instruments. To this view, the best
liianaftod armies have come; along
similar lines the most efficiently con
ducted civic enterprises are now con
ducted. General Miles should be sol
dier enough to accept the Inevitable
with dignity and silence, and his
fiiends cannot mend matters by clam
oring for him.
There weie captains before Aeuniein
non and there will be good generals
In the United Ktates army long after

The President.
T1IKUI? Is a political signifi
cance In the warmth of the
Mouth's welcome of the
president which close ob
servers will bo ipilck to note. As to
the genuineness of that welcome, ull
reports agree, ' It was not mnmifuc; It was spontaneous. Moreover,
It went Inr beyond the ordinary cor
dlullty which crowds of Americans
everywhere exhibit for the occupant of
the chief magistracy. 1t was a per
sonal testimonial to Theodore Roose
velt, to "Teddy." That ho was presi
dent Intensified II, of course; but It did
not account for all of it. Amongst the
mass of .Southern people, regardless of.
their politics, prejudices and queer
localisms, the feeling ran that here,
coming among them, was u whole
souled, thorough-going American, a
hind of man they could respect and
honor, no matter how much they might
disagree with his politics or his re
ligion. There was, of course, especial reason
why the people of South Carolina, the
i lean, leputuble people, should wish by
tho magnitude and warmth of their
f-'roellnjf to impress the president; for
their lieutenant governor, a relative of
the unspeakable Tillman, had with
hereditary boorlshness put upon the
president In the outraged name of tho
Palmetto state, an exasperating In
f tilt, to their great shame and humilia
tion. Tint the Tillman incident would
not account for the uniform spontan
iety of tho president's reception
throughout the states included in his
journey to Charleston. The assertion
must rest on faith until opportunity
arises for pi oof, but we venture to
hazard it that the president could havo
1 rolonged his tour until every state
and territory in the union hud been
visited, and that everywhere he wmild
have found the same warmth in the
greetings of the common people.
This, we repeat, is a circumstance of
large significance considered In rela
tion lo the politics of the next few
ji-ais. At Washington, tho belief has
mown that Mr. Roosevelt was weaken
ing Ills political chances by methods
that AVashlngton describes as erratic.
Hut AVasliington's view of politics is
larely that of the country at large.
The people irXvay from the center have
a larger perspective. They see details
in better proportion. They have ex
amined the cliuige that the president
is eriatli', and they have come to the
conclusion that the right tiling is the
i ight thing, even though done unex
pectedly and unconventionally. In
others words, the plain people still have
l.ntli in Theodore Itoosevelt; not less
row than formerly but more. They
are satisfied with him and loyal to him,
and the politician who imagines othor
N.'ie will arise some morning a wiser
and a sadder man.

Capital and Labor.
(Twin Amliiw Caiiirici.''" Xew Hook, "Tho llin-
lill llf HllMlll'vl."
IT IS VEHY unfortunate that the
irresistible tendency of our ago
which draws manufacturing into"
immense establishments, lequlr
Ing the work of thousands of men, ren
ders tt impossible for employers who
reside near to obtain that intimate ac
quaintance with employes which, under
the old system of manufacturing In
very small establishments, made the
relation o; master and man more
pleasing to both.
AVheii articles were manufactured in
small shops by employers who re
quired only the assistance of a few
men and apprentices, tho employer had
opportunities to know every one, to
become well acquainted with each, and
to know his merits both us a man and
as a woikman: and, on tho other hand,
the workman, being brought Into closer
contact with his employer, Inevitably
Knew nioii. of his business, of his
cares and troubles, ot his efforts to
succeed, and, more Important than all,
he came to know something of the
characteristics of the man himself. All
this Is changed.
Thus the employes become more like
human machines, as It were, to the em
ployer, and the employer becomes al
most a myth lo his men, Vvnm every
point of view, this Is a most regrettable
result, yet It Is ono for which I see no
remedy. Tim free play of economic
laws Is forcing Hie manufacture 'of all
articles of general consumption more
and more Into the bauds of a few
enormous cpuceniH, that their cost to
the consumer may be less,
Tlu-ro Is no longer any loom for con
ducting" the munufaeturii of such mil
clis upon a siiuill scale; espeiiHlye
waibs and machinery costing millions
are requiu'd, as the amount per tun
or p"i" yard of what we call "llxed
chaises" Is so great a factor In tho
total cost that whether a cancel u can
run succetfsfullv or not In many cases
depends upon whether It divides ihesu
llxed charges which may be salt) to
be pnu tlcally tho same ju a huge es
tablishment as In a snmller-'by a
tlousur.d tuns per day or by live hun
dred tons, per day of product. Hence
tho reason for the continual Increase
year by car In the pioduct ot your
mills, nut thut the manufacturer wUhes
.hi 1 .1
primarily lo Increase his product, but
that tlm strain of. competition forces
him liito extensions that ho tuny there
by reduce more and inoru por ton or
pei' yard theso fixed charges, Upon
which the safely of his capital depends,
tt being, therefore, impossible for
tho employers of thousands to become
acquainted with their men, It We ato
hot to lose all reeling of mutuality be
tween tis, thu employer must seek their
acquaintance through other forms, lo
express his care for the welt-being of
those upon vhou labor he depends for
success, by devoting, part oC'hls earn
ings 'for Institutions, and for the- ac
commodation of organizations, such as
co-operative stoies, and I hope In re
turn that the employes are to show by
the Use which they make of such bene
factions that they In turn respond lo
this sentiment upon the part of the
employers wherever it may bo found,
ity such means as these we may hope
to maintain to some extent the old
feeling of" kindliness, mutual 'coull
dencp, respect and esteem which for
merly distinguished the relations be
tween llio employer and hts men.
