PREFACE,



THE DAILY NEWS ALMANAC AND POLITICAL REGISTER for 1896 is com
piled with special reference to the political campaign of the year. The very
general and widespread interest that has been excited by the discussion of
the silver question and the action of political organizations regarding it
makes it reasonably certain that it will play an important part in the pending
presidential campaign. A very generous amount of space has been given in
the present issue to a perfectly impartial statement of the various phases of
the silver question and to invaluable statistics bearing upon the subject.
Most that is of permanent value on the subject that has been brought out by
the year's discussion is condensed into a popular form in these pages.

The tariff is quite likely to be an important issue in the coming
political struggle and large additions have been made to what has usually
been published in the ALMANAC on that subject. The table giving our
exports to and imports from every foreign country shows the trend of
our trade and commerce. The history of the government's dealings with
the bond syndicate outlines one of the most peculiar monetary operations in
the history of national finances in this or any other country.

The elections in fourteen states of the union full returns of which
ate given show the tendency of political thought and will serve as a basis
for future calculations.

Unusual efforts have been put forth, by large additions of new and
fresh material, to make THE DAILY NEWS ALMANAC AND POLITICAL REGISTER
for 1896 not only popular with but a necessity to all thinking American
citizens who desire to acquaint themselves with political issues and measures
with the view to casting an intelligent ballot in the next presidential election.
