7 DIARY OF EVENTS IN 1900. The ohronlck'B of 1809, although com paratively free from Btartllug records, nevertbeleae uhow the year to have been one which will bo remembered In history. Our qountry'a 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. Samoau troubles reached a crisis, and England has displayed an Inclination to withdraw, leaving the field to the United States and Ger many. In the Philippines the policy of the United States to assert the rights ced ed by Spain was resisted by a large element In the Island of Luzon espe cially, and a state of active warfare between American troops and the Fili pinos, under Agulnaldo, extended from February until the early fall. No de cisive battles were fought, but the Fili pinos were routed at many Important points. The United States forces In the Island at the close of the year number 65,000 and the battle losses aggregate about 2,300 killed and wounded. The treaty with Spain, ratified In 1899, marks a new era In the history of the United States republic. That and the outbreak of the South African war are the chief occurrences of the year In International affairs. A universal peace congress held ses sions at The Hague in May, June and July, but the deliberations bore no im mediate fruit either In bringing about disarmament or establishing the prin ciple of arbitration. The close of the year finds England at war hi the Su dan and South Africa and on the de fensive against continental aggression. The Dreyfus trial was the sensation of the year. Santo Domingo's presi dent. General Ileureaux, was assassi nated. Colombia and Venezuela have been disturbed by armed revolutions. The United States' standing army was Increased to 100,000 men. Noted minor occurrences of the year were the failure of the old publishing firm of Harper & Bros., the burning of the Windsor hotel In New York, with a heavy loss of life, and the deaths of many Illustrious people.
