He said he bad been connected with the

Impecunious condition of the musses of la
borers In this country ho attributed to their
own Improvidence. Tho only way to Im
prove them was to teach them to save. Too
much of tbe earnings of the laborer
were speut in liajuor and tobacco.
It baa been caculated that the
amount annually spent by the laboring
population In drink win H00, 000,000, and
at least $300,000,000 more Is spent in cigars,
tobacco and useless ammemunts. The
high licenses and high rents would do much
towards lessening tbe evil. Tbe witness said
he had very little faith In political pro

In speaking of the railroad question, Mr.

Lang-try Makes Large Investments
In New York Real Estate.
New Yors, Sept. 26. Mr. John M
Bowers, attorney for Hrs. Lautry in brr
recent bond and mortgage Investment, said
to a coricipondent aeetrday:
"It is a f set that ebo Invested Sl.ooo In it
perfectly secure manner, but I cannot giro
you the entire datatawaaaae there are things
between couasaaaMsaot that must he se
cret. I am at ttUrtptlvmy how the trans
action came about. Shortly before sbe left
for Europe I received e nete from her (ami
he drew from a pile of letters a dainty en
velope with a neat crest on the flap) re
questing me to search tbe title of three
pieces of properly on wbfeb sbe w as de
sirous of advancing loans on mortgage.
She had slrady been advised of the nature
of the real estate, ami my part of Hid work
was to look tbetecords up and aoe that ev
erything was all right. On receiving my
report she sent me a check for Wl.OOf. I
don't now remember whether It was
certltlcil, but It was duly paid on presenta
tion at ftw bank. It was expendud in tbn
following way j Forty-five thousand dol
lars on a s'one house In Fifty-third street,
between Elfth and Sixth avenues; J20.00H
on a stniio building on Eighth avenue, near
Thirtieth street; and llU.noo on another on
the same avenue a little "below Seventy
fourth street. The papers were recordud
in the name of Emillm Charlotte Laugtrv,
Island of Jersey. "
"Was Mr, l.angtry In any way connected
In the matter?"
"No the Investment wan made by her in
her own name, without rcferenco to her
husband or anyone else, and, its her affairs
are now arranged, sho has absolute man
agement, and can do just what she pleases
with It. In this country a married woman
has no more control over Iter property than
a man. Legally the courts would uphold
her Interest In case of dlrllculty tho same as
If she was a native, but In case, slut was
obliged to foreitlpe that would be another
question. It Is still undecided whether
ai'ens have the. right; to own real
esiule, hut that could bo overcome by
soiun one buying tho property for her
and oeeorulng the title in auoilicr name.
When Mrs. l.angtry notified me of her In
tentions, I called on her and w talked the
matter over. She talked In a very business
llko nunncr, and no doubt fully apprecia
ted what she was about to She loft the
matter In my hands without any Instruc

anxious to hear my decision, which was la
