" SECOND PftRT.
The year 1892 his contributed its full
share to future history; yet it has in the
main betn a period of peace. The ever
present European war cloud seems to have
dwindled away to the size of a man's hand,
while the only haze that threatened to em
broil the United States with a foreign
power was dissipated almost at the thresh
old of the year.
The political campaign recently closed
was remarkable, both for its lack of ex
citement and lor its remarkable result.
Huge combines of capital, of which the
Beading is the most conspicuous, are put
ting a new face upon the commercial sys
tem. Social and religious movements have
marked the year, while outbursts of law
lessness, both, at home and abroad, have set
people to thinking. Science has won many
a victory, especially in the fields of astron
omy and geography. Even in the matter
of sports the year has been most note
worthy, more than one champion having
yielded his laurels, while almost every old"
record has given way to a new one.
More history has been made in Pittsburg
and its environs this year than in any other
American city. There has been no other
calamity so dramatic as the wave of flame
nd flood which overwhelmed Oil City and
Htusville. The social crusade has been a
heme for press and pulpit all over the land.
But the one great, far-reaching event of the
year is, unquestionably, the Battle of
Homestead. Its long train of consequences,
direct and indirect, is seemingly endless.
That struggle figured in the bloodshed of
Coeur d' Alene, the car burning at Buffalo
and the civil war in Tennessee. It gave
labor a tattle cry, and it also 'furnished
anarchy its opportunity. It marked the
beginning of the most bitter struggle of the
year between labor and capital; gave birth
to a long series of trials for murder and riot;
involved charges of treason in arms and
massacre by poison, More important still,
the Battle of Homestead will have its effect
on the legislation of the future.
Yes, 1892 has been a memorable year. Its
detailed history will appear in the chronol
ogy which follows:

struggles occupy the first place in impor
tance, while the cleansing of a neighbor
