This Company has been formed for the purpose of making investments in well-known bonit fide Home and Foreign Securities, and Government Stocks of a negociable and transferable charac- ter, in such a manner that the shareholders may participate in all those advantages which are peculiar to large capitalists. The special feature of the Company will be the distribution of its capital over a number of sound and paying marketable secu- rities, thus admitting its shareholders into many desirable enter- prises to which individually they perhaps could not subscribe. The great success which has attended the Foreign and Colonial Government Trusts, the Submarine Cables Trust, and other com- panies of a similar character, upon the method of distributing capital over a number of different securities, shows that the prin- ciples which this Company proposes to adopt lead to a very safe and substantial medium of investment. A contract has been entered into between Edward Downs, of the one part, and the Subscribers named in the Memorandum of Association for and on-behalf of the Company, of the other part, dated 20th February, 1872. Prospectuses and Forms of Applications for Shares may be ob- tained at the Bankers', Brokers', and Solicitors', and at the Tem- porary Offices of the Corporation, Moorgate-street Chambers, 49, Moorgate-street, E.C. 413 THE STANDARD TRUST INVESTMENT CORPORATION, LIMITED.

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We desire to impress upon our representatives and friends the absolute necessity of sending in their reports immediately, so that they may appear upon the morning of the day following that on which the events transpire.
SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 1872. THE short time movement has been successful, and employers, in most cases, have conceded with good grace what their men demanded in a spirit of temperate firmness. In due course we may expect that a better understanding will exist between the two parties concerned in the arrange- ment, and that the relationship of Capital and Labour will henceforth be established on a more satisfactory footing. It must not, however, be forgotten by the men that they have duties to fulfil as well as rights to demand. The obligation is not all on the side of employers, and we may fairly look for an equitable adjustment of many matters, which still cause anxiety, and are the occasion of wrong. Among the foremost claiming attention is the apprenticeship question, which, having its origin in days of monopoly, has been perpetuated, with more or less of modification, until the present hour. Broadly viewed the sys- tem is one which cannot be said to work well either in the interests of masters or men. Like the guilds and ancient companies, peculiar to London and other old 'cities, apprenticeship is a relic of the past, and although attempts have been made to adapt it to the exigencies of this age, they have not been of a very satisfactory character. "Bound," as the phrase goes, at the age of fourteen, the lad is not out of his time" until he reaches his majority, and has no status as a journeyman, unless lie can show that, at what- ever period he may have been apprenticed, he has served seven years to his trade. Of course there are certain exceptional regulations which tend to modify this arrangement, but a servitude of seven years forms the basis of the system. Having complied with the terms of his indentures, the lad is free to work at his craft, and be- comes an eligible candidate for admission to the Trade Society, widch makes the rules, and frames the laws, intended to govern the proceedings of journeymen and protect their interests against encroaching or unjust employers. Upon the face of it this regulation seems to be equitable enough, but an enquiry into the way in which it operates, will, we think, shake the confidence of many who have been wont to up- hold the system by accepting its conditions with- out reflection, and by taking for granted, in a perfunctory manner, that what everybody appeared to acquiesce in, must be right. The inequality of the method, however, becomes apparent when the di: versity of gifts and the wide difference of aptitude in individuals comes to be taken into consideration. It is something very little short of the marvellous to witness the evident faith with which large bodies of intelligent men accept the dicta of their leaders, and decline to challenge the validity of opinions because bearing the stamp of antiquity. Under the system, to which we take exception, the quick, versatile, sensitive lad, is compelled to drag out a weary existence in conjunction with the dull, slug- gish, inapt youth, and when the hour of emancipa- tion comes they are placed on an equal footing and admitted to the exercise of equal rights. Now, as it is not too much to say that the capacity of some persons is so limited as to prevent their learning a business efficiently in twice seven years, it is evident that wrong must arise to an apprentice sufficiently well endowed with natural abilities as to make the acquirement of a knowledge of his craft a matter of easy accomplishment in three or four years. Upon what ground is the race denied to the swift and the battle to the strong, in such a case ? It cannot be for the benefit of the men, since they are not interested in ignoring or restraining ability with a view to advantage mediocrity and it assuredly is not conducive to the welfare of employers that efficiency should be clogged with restrictive laws tending to retard its development into higher usefulness. What we would suggest is the formation of Boards of Examiners, composed of masters and men, proficient in a knowledge of their several handicrafts, before which lads might be examined and their qualifications tested. Some such plan would tend to help many a youth, unfitted for the trade he was endeavouring to learn, to find his true level and right vocation. If, during a probationary term, is was found that the novice was likely to make a bad carpenter, it might be discovered that he possessed the qualifi- cations necessary for success as a mason. The ap- titude as well as the attainments of lads would be ascertained, and while mediocrity in no case should be allowed to pass and obtain a certificate of effi- ciency, there would be a better chance afforded youths of following that calling for which, by their natural or acquired abilities, they were spe- cially suited. Besides which if diplomas or certificates were to be substituted for indentures they might be of different degrees of merit, entitling the bearers of the highest class to maximum, and of the lowest to minimum, wages. At present the able and in- competent workmen are placed upon the same level. Nay more, as the wind is tempered to the shorn lamb, so adventitious aid is brought to bear ifr favour of incapable workmen, to the detriment of apt and thoroughly efficient hands, who scorn to avail themselves of extrinsic means of obtaining employment, content to stand upon merit alone.
