PREFACE.



The year preceding a presidential election is important and
interesting from a purely political point of view. The state con-
ventions and the elections of the year indicate the popularity of
new issues and frequently set the pace for the following cam-
paign. In this regard the elections and the utterances of state
conventions in 1899 are significant and valuable.

The war in the Philippines and the conditions in Hawaii,
Cuba and Puerto Rico will, in all probability, exert a powerful
influence on the campaign of 1900. In all of these departments
THE DAILY NEWS ALMANAC for 1900 is singularly replete. In
the article upon the war in Luzon valuable official documents
are given, including the report of the Schurman Philippine com-
mission. As to other important and historic features of the year,
like the Peace Conference at The Hague, the temporary adjust-
ment of the Alaskan boundary and the Spanish treaty, very
interesting official papers, which have rarely been published, are
given in full.

The Nicaragua canal, which is likely to be the subject of
congressional legislation, is treated with a good deal of detail,
and other subjects, like the Colonial Systems of the World,
Submarine Cable Lines, American Trusts, Railroads, Samoan
affairs and partition, and many other topics, are given the
prominence they deserve.

Besides these discussions there is the same amount of
material relating to finance, the army and navy, trade and com-
merce, money, schools and education, pensions, agriculture, the
churches, congress, national debt and other themes that have
contributed so largely to the popularity of THE DAILY NEWS
ALMANAC in the past.

Nothing of a political character has been omitted from the
present volume that has any direct bearing upon the issues in
the presidential campaign of 1900, while very much new material
has been added to meet the demands of educators, clergymen,
agriculturists and others interested in nonpolitical affairs.

January I, 1900.
