The Daily News Almanac and Political Register for 1900 (Classic Reprint)
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.
