TEXAS IS AKOUSED The Russian Government Taking to Them Oat of tbe Country. ST. PETERSBURG, December government will probably promulgate new anti-Jewish law at tbe beginning of the com- ing year. One of tbe most important clauses of tho new measure forbids the selling, leading, or mortgaging to Jews of any real estate of the empire. Hitherto such a regulation has applied only to Poland. Another clause pro- vides that Jews shall be dispossessed of any real estate they may hold. In tho past the Jewish merchants, after paying the commercial tax of the first gmld for ten years, have been allowed to pur- chase real estate outside of the limits assigned to the Jewish populace. The new law cancels this privilege and compels them to sell all the real estate tnat they may have acquired. The Jewish artisans are also to be deprived of cer- tain rights, and are to be feept strictly within the limits assigned to the Jewish population. Repressive measures will be taken against Jews infringing the new law, as well as against Christians who may be found abetting them UBS TALKS.
