A CENTURY OK COMMERCIAL PRO- uitiflsa. This year marks the lapse of a century since the news reached our side of the Atlantic that Chief Justice Johm Jay ot New York had effected a commercial treaty Cetween the United Stites and Groat Britain. It was a highly important evi'nt, though next to the Declaration ot Independence, July 4, 1776, the treaty of 1783, by which England acknowledged the independence of the thirteen colnl2 In separate mationv was the most Important event of the eighteenth century for this country. For several years after the close of the revolutionary war England had done all It could to Injure our com. merce and Industry, enforcing rigidly its navigation acts excluding our merchant ships from the West India trade and lm pressing from them sailors for tha Brit ish army. An embryo was laid by our government on British vessels and this country was on the verge of another war with Great Britain when Washington sent John Jay there with instructions to nego. tlate a treaty. The terms as arranged by him were formally ratified by the United mates in June. The assurance that England had ac knowledged our commercial freedom gave a great stimulus to our foreign com merce, which almost doubled lm a single year. It Jumped from less than 68 mil lions in 1774 to rf.arly 118 millions In 1706, marking the first great era of business prosperity In the United States. The population then was about i.COO.OOO, so that both our population' and foreign commerce now are about fifteen times greater than a hundred years ago. In that year, 17S5, the Now York Prices Current was established, intended to be the voice of the new commercial life. The paper flow is called the Shipping and Commercial List and (Now York Price Current. As the oideat commercial paper in America Its managers propose to cele brate Its own o.intennlal and that of the commercial liberty of the nation by pub lishing a memorial of American develop ment in1 the three great fields of our country's prosperity, agriculture, com merce and1 manufactures. The work Is to be edited by Chauneey M. Depcw and one hundred well qualified Americans will esch write a chapter showing the enor mous progress made during the century in the field treated of by him. Among the topics chosen are national finance, for eign and domestic commerce, postal s r vlce In commerce, the press, the tele graph, the merchant marine, American banking, American labor, commercial wealth, one hundred years of New York commerce, American car building, street railways, theaters, figuring mills, potter ies, iron, and all other promliieit indus tries. A sufficient number of gentlemen, each of whom is prominently identified with the subject nam.d for him, have adopted the Invitation to show that the work will be one of unusual Interest and Indicate the possibility that it w.ll toe come a standard for ref-jrence in future years. The conception of the work 13 ' Uhiy creditable to the publishers of the p .pir, which on Dec. 19 next will have Co i pi ted Its one hundredth y?ar. Thei story to be told is a wonderful one "ni without a .parallel, though the United titutes is far from be.ng ths only country which has enormously expanded and pro Hied by the aid of what is a "c.ntury of Inventions" in a far different sense to that In which the term first was used by the Marquis of Worcester.

These areas ar occu pied by ssver.ty millions of peuplo who have developed their mliv.ral and agri cultural resources loan extent not merely to supply their own wanls.but to feed and clothe an untold number of millions ot persons in the old world. They have cov vered much of the land with a network of railroads and electric wires and Its Interior waters with steam'.rs and sill vessels, all of which are utilized in a commerce the aggregrte of which hardly would have been drained of a cen'ury agj as possible for the whole world. They have exceeded the people of thj "mother country In population and wealth and set them a brilliant example of S; If gov ernment. They have offered a better op portunity to make a llvlnir than is afford ed In Europe, which has b.ien availed of by many millions of Industrious Immi grants who have come t'o our shore to help In developing the resource of the new continental republic. And the growth of the press has been not the '.ess remark able than in othitr fields of lndustrl:;t and intellectual expansion. The news papers of the United States have led those of Europe In the diss mlntitlon ot news, In the aiding of readers to think for themselves, and acting In the light o the best and latest practical information nWectlng th.ir material Interests.
