Professor HENRY CLAY : Labour in the New
THIS is the last of Professor Henry Clay 's six talks in Part III of the Monday series. Beginning next week, he, Professor Plant, and Mr. D. H. Robertson will conduct a symposium on the question, How has the State met the Change ? ' This evening Professor Clay outlines the position of labour in the new organization of industry. He will show how the last thirty years have seen an immense extension of the nineteenth century method of settling wages and conditions, that is, by negotiation, between representatives of employees and employers. The increased scale and publicity of business and the growing political influence of wage-earners both conduce to this. Experiments are being made in organizing a more intimate system of consultation through Industrial and Works Councils ; while in America the spread of the habit of investment among wage-earners may modify industrial relations.

ISABEL GRAY (pianoforte) It has often been pointed out how Cesar Franck left the pianoforte severely alone for a good many years of his busy life, although it was his first instrument. In the last part of his career he turned to it again with enthusiasm, and this piece was the first outcome of that renewed interest. It. is a symphonic poem in one movement, in which the pianoforte is used rather as a member of the orchestra than as a solo instrument with accompaniment--a new departure at that date. The subject is one of the poems in Victor Hugo's book ' Les Orientales,' with the same title as Franck's piece. The Djinns were malevolent spirits in the Arab mythology, and in his music Franck sets before us some of the terror which they inspired. The listener is to imagine the approach of dragons and all manner of monsters, fleeing before the North Wind ; we hear their awful cries and shrieks as they come nearer and pass by on their flight, bending and breaking the trees, and shaking houses. And at the end they pass away again into the distance. Composed in 1884, it was first performed in the following year.
