- ■ ; —»' ■.-• " A RAILWAY MANAGER. **' SHOCK TO BRITISH PRIDE. ' (Per Press Association—Copyright). , LONDON, February 17. The 'action of the Great. ■Eastern! Railway Company in obtaining a gene-1 ral manager from America is widely condemned by the Press. Some papers blame the system, declaring that there, are too many ornamental and useless directors, and insufficient encouragement is given to the staff. x i The ''Observer" declares that not 1 for many years has Britain received such a shock to her pride. Something, it says, must be wrong with the system of promotion. ',:. The editor of th# " Railway Review" says that if Lord Claud Hamilton's statement—that it is impossible to find capable Englishmen for the positionis true, it is the _greatest reflection 1 upon English railway management made for years. He asserts that there is plenty of ability among British railwaymen, but it has not been given a chance.

The "Westminster 'Gazette" refuses to believe that Englishmen, who are pioneers of railway construction 1 the world over, are incapable of managing the Great Eastern system.
