Two years ago a law was passed providing for the gradual emanci­ pation of the slaves, of whom the empire still contains a large number. One of the provisions of this law was that every slaveholder should register the number and individual value of his slaves, and the period allowed for this registration ex­ pired at the end of March last. On the registers being overhauled it appeared that only a relatively small proportion of the slaves, in the country had been "declared." The bulk of them had been omitted in order that their owners might escape the small registration fee to be paid cn each slave. As many of the planters own large numbers of slaves the saving to them was considerable. Every slave not registered, however, becomes ex post facto free, and now there is gnashing of teeth in...

Price* to Be Forced Up to 810 Per Ton Before the First of January—Indigna­ tion Meetings to Be Held, and Riots Not at All Unlikely. CHCAGO, Oct. 29.—The bread riots of London area matter of history, and if there are coal riots in Chicago this winter it will not be surprising. Winter weather has already set in, and much to the as­ tonishment of the proverbial oldest in­ habitant, almost zero weather has come in the third week of October instead of the first week in December. Meanwhile the coal barons have their hands on the throats and pockets of the people, and there is considerable suffering in the dis­ tricts peopled by the poor. In August small egg coal sold for §0.75. In Sep­ tember it was advanced to §7. On Oct. 1 to $7.25 and on Oct. 14 to $7.75.

A Peculiar Hallucination. Sheriff B. H.Webster of Pembina, Dak. accompanied by his sister, arrived in Jamestown yesterday, to convey home the remains of his father, who died at the asylum Friday night. The deceased was 75 years old, and had only been afflicted a few months. The peculiar hallucina­ tion that some one was trying to goison him, and that he would poison anyone that came near him, was the ruling fea­ ture of his malady. Sheriff Webster speaks in the most complimentary terms of the kindness and skill of Dr. and Mrs. Archibald in the attention shown the pa­ tient, and in fact of the entire institution which he considers the best conducted and most successful hospital in the north­ west. Sheriff Webster also brought another patient from Pembina county for treat­ ment. To Delay the Execution.

THE ROAD TO WEALTH. INTERESTING LETTER FROM THE GREAT AMERICAN SHOWMAN. Kconomy Lends to Klches, but "True economy Is Misapprehended"—Good Health Essential to Success—A Safe Plan—Ambition, Politeness, Integrity. The road to wealth is, as Dr. Franklin truly says, "as plain as the road to mill." It consists simply in expending less than we earn. Many may say, ''Wo under­ stand this this is economy, and we know economy is wealth we know we can't eat cur cake and keep it also." Yet, perhaps, more failures arise from mistakes on this point than almost any other. True economy is misapprehended, and people go through life without properly compre­ hending what that principle is. There •are many who think that economy con­ sists in saving cheese parings and candle ends, in cutting off twopence from the laundress' hill, and doing all sorts of little mean things. Economy is not meanness. This false economy may frequently bo seen in men cf business, and in those instances it often runs to writi...
