PREFACE.

The year 1892 marks an epoch in the political history of the United States, the elections of the year showing a wider and more radical change in the political sentiment of this country than any preceding one. The election tables of the Almanac for 1893, covering more than 100 pages, give the vote in every county (state and territorial), showing exactly where the change of political opinion has been most pronounced. The table of exports and imports by articles for two years enables one to see at a glance the effect of the new tariff legislation on our trade and commerce. A brief history is given of all the presidential nominating conventions and caucuses since Washington. Details of the settlement of our difficulties with Chile and Italy, the progress of the Bering sea dispute and our retaliation on Canada are full of interest. Short sketches of men who became prominent last year and the letters of acceptance from the four presidential candidates are new features in this issue. The World's-Fair matter has been compiled with careful discrimination and will be found of general interest and value. A large assortment of census and other statistics bearing on Indian schools, silver, gold, pensions, education, churches, government receipts and expenditures, the liquor traffic, banks, the currency and a great variety of other subjects of value to every intelligent citizen, are to be found in the present volume.

THE DAILY NEWS ALMANAC FOR 1893 is replete with new and fresh material. Its aim is to be fair, accurate and strictly non-partisan- and no pains or expense have been spared to maintain the high reputation it has already made for completeness and trustworthiness.
