The chronicles of 1899, although com paratively free from st:utliu£ records, nevertheless show the year to have been one which -will be remembered in history. Our country's problems have been unusual. Cuba, under military rule, remained quiet, and considerable progress has been made in bringing social and commercial order out of chaos. Samoan troubles reached a crisis, and England has displayed an inclination to withdraw, leaving the field to the United States and Ger many.

COUNTY OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER In the campaign of 189G Candidate Ilryan—who was not then a colonel assured the people that the republicans were but the tools of "Lombard street;" that England sought to foist the gold staDJard upon the world because she was a creditor nation and wanted her interest and indebtedness paid in the dearest money possible, says the Taco ma Ledger. Now the conditions are en tirely changed, and even democrats ad mit that the United States is the credit or nation. If the argument of Mr. Bryan applied with force, and gold was good for Kugland an the creditor nation, it iH equally good for the United States.which now is and ever shall be, creditor in stead of debtor as iv the past.

6 SURFACE OF ROADS. Only «Ii«- Handout Stoiic Should Be I aril lor Top I ;i % !-i-. The advantages to bo derived from good stcne roads are co manifold that all other materials should be discarded where tough road etono is available for their construction and maintenance. Hut it is greater economy to use earth or gravel than to go to the expense of macadamizing roads with too soft, too Irittle or rotten material. Many use this because it is easily prepared. A road should never be surfaced with imything short of trap rock cr serpen tine. Inferior material may often be used with impunity for the first layer, or foundation, but even this should be ■elected with great care. The evils resulting from improper .(instruction of stone roads are even greater than those from the nae of im proper material. Macadam never in tended that a heterogeneous conglomera tion of stone and mud should be called •i macadam road. Neither did he in tend that the name should be applied to roads constructed of l...

Chicago, Jan. 14.—John Barrett, ex- United States minister to Siam, for the tiret time publicly named Senator Hoar, last night, at Lake Forest university as the senator whose anti expansion speech was cabled to Hong Kong and subse quently put in the hands of the Filipino soldiers, causing, an .Mr. Barrett believed, the open insurrection. Frequently this speech and its presumed effect have been mentioned, and the reading public has connected the name of Senator Hoar with it, and it is probable that Mr. Bar rett would not have used the lawmaker's name on this occasion had he not been facing an audience known to be largely hostile to the administration's policy in the Orient. It appears further from the ex.minister's speech that he believes the government has discovered privately the stages by which the anti-expansion ad dress reached Luzon.
