NEW YORK , Dec. 30. Bradsti cot's review of "The Year in Bublncns" to morrow will say : Rarely have sanguine commercial and financial hopes or predictions lound such adequate realization an they did during 18'JO. Certainly thu widespread and general upward move ment of values , alike of staples and of. securities such an occurred this year could not have been foreseen. Linked with an immense business and record breaking production in nearly fill lines of business and Industry ex cept , perhaps , In some products of the agricultural interest .there was with , it an advance of staple values , either of which alone would have made the year notable , and combined they have served to establish the year as a re cord breaker and set up now stand ards. The volume of domestic and of for eign trade alike was the largest ever recorded and the bank clearings , re flecting immense business expansion , active speculation in stocks and im mense now industrial fioatlngs far sur passed all previous records. Prices , lui a result primarily of the stimula tlon proceeding from supply and de mand conditions , scored probably the greatest advance In any single year and brought the general level of staple values to the highest point reached for more than eight years past. Fail ure statistics point to the smallest number reported for seventeen years past. past.Those Those results have come to pass In the face of a considerable lessened production of wheat and an Immense falling off in the yield of cotton. With the exception of marked speculative activity In the latter during the car Her part of the season , speculation on the leading exchanges has been more largely confined to stocks and securi ties. ties.In In industrial affairs the year has eon one of enormous expansion. Cor- alnly nothing like the general ad- ancc in wages of industrial employes HIS been witnessed for many years ml this has been accomplished with i minimum of friction entitling the ear to special mention on this , If on 10 other account. The close of the -car finds order books filled to from hreo to six months ahead In nearly ill lines. Distributive trade was nat- irally of Immense volume throughout ho year , though mild weather at the close tended to modify the satisfaction with which retail trade in winter nbrlcs was regarded. This was , how ever , partly compensated for by ji lollday business surpassing all m-evl ous records. Notwithstanding smaller exports of agricultural products during the calon- lar year breadstuff shipments being Ifi1 per cent smaller , cattle and hog ox- [ lorts 12 per cent less and cotton ship inonts , on account of the short crop , at least 15 per cent less , there was such an expansion In our manufactured exerts - > orts that the entire export trade of .ho your will considerably exceed that ) f the last calendar year , which was the heaviest recorded , nnd make the year no less notable In the line of for eign than In domestic trade , with a : otal of exports little loss than $1,280 , ' 000,000 , nn aggregate , which If reach ed , will mark a gain of : i per cent over the record total of 1898. Imports have naturally shown a marked revival and if the gain for the eleven mouths is maintained for the month of December a total little below $800,000,000 would bo expected , which would guarantee a foreign trade well In excess of $2,000,000,000 , an amount , It might bo remarked , never before equalled.

In order to remove any doubt of the status of Protestant marriages per formed during the last year by army chaplains , where one of the concen trating parties was a Catholic , Gen eral Otis' order was made retroactive. Native women who have married sol- dlerH without Catholic rites have been ostracised by their relatives. Justice Arellano requested the omis sion of a divorce clause from the de cree because o fthc belief of Filipinos that a marriage tie cannot be broken.

Matt Styen , acting as spokesman of the party , Is reported to have told the president that ho was only authorized to intervene in the interest of peace and that the burghers did not feel that they wore bound by his "unwar rantable conduct , " especially as they ran the risk of confiscation of tneir property , and they simply desired to be permitted to farm in peace and pro posed to immediately return to tnch farms. Sir Charles Howard Vincent , me > . ber of Parliament for the central di vision of Sheffield and colonel of the Queen's Westminister volunteers , has been appointed to command the infan try division of the City of London Im perial regiment.

I would not bo likely to hear of it before fore the general public. It would not be surprising if a treaty had been made or is going to be made. ' The Portuguese charge d'affalrs in the United States , Ignaclo do Costa Duarte , Is at present in thin city. He declared In nn interview that , In his opinion , it would bo well for Portugal to dispose of Delagoa bay and the East Africa possessions. Tney had always been a source of-trouble and wore like ly to remain so. But it is not credi ble , " said Senor Duarte , "that any treaty has boon made by which Portu gal has parted with all its colonial possessions. Any ministry that agreed to such a treaty would not remain in power a minute. If u treaty such as described in the German newspapers had been consummated , there would have been some hints of it published in Portugal to prepare the public mind.

It is his belief , however , that not very many men have been sent from hare to Philadelphia. The British consul secured the names of the Boers' recruiting agents here by having someone writs to the Boer agents In Washington asklug fur authority to recruit a force Ir. this city , with the result that the appli cant was put in communication \ith the Boer agents here.

Mall advices from Honolula to the Assocl ated Press regarding the bubonic plague situation say : President Dole , while realizing the seriousness of the situation , does not believe there is much cause for alarm. The president thinks there is no danger to those whoso houses , persons and food are cleanly. Ho has unbounded confidence In the. ability of the board of health to quickly stamp out the disease. Some physicians say that the disease IP not black plague. Public opinion is divided also. Many believe that If the plague were present in Honolulu the Inhabitants of Chinatown would bo carried off by the hundreds on ac count of the filthy condition of the dis trict. Another interesting phase of the case Is the fact that no Japanese have been attacked. They live in largo numbers in the quarantined dls trict. The council of state mot In extra' ordinary session on December 12 and appropriated $25,000 for immediate use of the board of health In combating the plague. All of the district outside of Honolulu lulu are in a clean condition and there Is little danger that the plague will gain a foothold in tlio other islands. Rolnnd RiMid Xot Kxpeutod to T.lvp. NEW YORK , Dec. 30. Roland Reed , the actor , who was operated on Tues day last at St. Luke's hospital , was reported to be resting quietly last night with little change in his condi tion for better or woivso. There is some doubt as to whether or not ho was operated upon for can cer , as reported. His trouble was orig inally announced as appendicitis and later as cancer of the stomach and It was said that half of his stomach was removed. His daughter has arrived and is con stantly at his bedside with her mother. Many flowers and messages of sym pathy arrive dally , but all but a few of the flowers are kept away from the sick room.
