PREFACE.

Few years in times of profound peace have been so crowded with stirring political and social events as 1894. The year opened with serious and disastrous labor troubles, which continued, with almost unabated intensity, until the middle of July. Political disturbances over the tariff controversy in congress created as much interest as any legislative action in our national history, while the November elections were a surprise to all parties. The democrats claim the republican majorities were the result of democrats failing to vote. The voluminous election tables in the almanac show whether this claim is well founded. Add to these disturbances the financial panic, which caused so much distress during the whole year up to the first of October, and the year 1894 becomes the most interesting of any in our history since the close of the war.

THE DAILY NEWS ALMANAC for 1895 contains an impartial discussion of most of these great events. Besides these there are articles upon many subjects that have engrossed a considerable share of public attention, among which are proportional representation, referendum, Coxeyism, the Bluefields incident, the Hawaiian republic, party strength in congress, history of the agitation over honorary titles, state laws upon arbitration in labor troubles, the Guttenberg liquor system and many others.

The present issue is singularly rich in statistics bearing upon the tariff, gold and silver, our commerce and trade, pensions, national finances, agricultural statistics, mortgage indebtedness and many other subjects of prime importance to every citizen.

The election tables are comprehensive and full, showing the vote of every congressional district in each state and giving the new congress complete. It is believed that the work is as fair, exact and accurate as it is possible to make so comprehensive a volume in the time that can be devoted to its compilation.
