NURSE BECOMES ACED HAN'S O
JOHN T. FRICL. SR-. AND PRES
ENT WIFE PLAN SUIT FOR
SLANDER CHILDREN AC
CUSED OF PLOTTING
TO EXHUME BODY.
Alleging that their mother waa
poisoned while being attended
by a trained nurse, who Is
now their stepmother, the children
of John T. Frlel, owner of a large
ranch at Cherryvllle, and one of the
beat known men In Clackamas coun
ty, are preparing to have the body
exhumed for examination early next
week. Determined to thwart them
In their purpose, the aged "man Is
keeping vigil nightly over the grave,
with hla beautiful young wife anx
iously awaiting bis return each morn
ing at their home not far away. The
news of the sensational charges and
the alleged secret plans to have the
body exhumed, with the determined
husband and father standing guard,
haa stirred the residents of this city
and county as seldom before, and the
wildest conjectures as to the facta
In the case are being made.
That the courts will be called up
on for a solution became evident -when
Mr. and Mra. Frlel came
to Oregon City, and engaged George
C. Brownell and William M. Stone to
file suit for alleged slander againat
the children of the former. It la
also probable that tbey will make
application for a reatraining order
against the children having the body
exhumed unless it Is done by county
fftcUla, Mr. and Mra. -Frlel. the
aged man almost exhausted from
worry and the strain of hla long
watchea. said that they had no ob
jection to the body being examined,
but they wanted it taken from the
grave and protected by the coroner to
prevent the injection of poison by
alleged plotters against them. Mr.
Brownell said Friday that the papers
tn the proposed suit for slander were
Beautiful Nurse Employed.
When the former-Mrs. Frlel waa
stricken early In February this year
an advertisement for a trained nurse
was inserted in a Portland paper,
which waa' answered by Miss Luella
Wilson, a handsome woman of about "
thirty years of age. When aha went
to the Frlel home ahe said that ahe
originally lived In Buffalo, N. Y., ac
cording to the children of Mr. Frlel.
She did not aay that ahe had been
connected with any Portland hospi
tal. Neighbora aay that she was an
excellent nurse and did everything
possible for Mrs. Frlel. Mr. Frlel de
clares that when his . wife realized
she could not recover ahe called
him to her bedside and begged him
to marry Miss Wilson.
Mrs. Frlel died on February 13, and
about two and a half months later
Mr. Frlel and his former wife's nurse
were married. He says that there
had been no objection by hla chil
dren to the wedding, and It waa some
time before the charges that Mrs.
Frlel had been poisoned were made.
When he heard of the plana to have
the body exhumed he made serious
objection unless It was to be done by
the coroner, but his children Insist
ed that it must be done at once. Cor
oner Wilson was consulted by Mr.
Frlel, but the official said the exam-.,
tnatioo could not be made at the
county's expense. County Judge Bea
tle also gave him the same Informa
tion. Mr. Frlel asserts that his children
continued their threats to have the
body secretly removed from the
grave, and finally he and his bride
determined to Invoke the courts for
assistance. They aay the trouble
haa resulted from hia children imag
ining that he intends to make a will
leaving virtually all his property to
his present wife.
Sheriff Asked For Aid.
The news that the aged man was
guarding the grave of his former wife
was revealed by him In a letter to
Sheriff Mass received Friday.
The sheriff declined to give the let
ter out for publication, but In part.
It is as follows:
"I have been Informed that seme
parties are going to take up the body
of Mr. Frlel, who died February 13,
1911. and waa burled in Cherryvllle
"They are going to get some party
outside of the county, and tt Is to be
done aomeilme this week, and at
night And not let me know any
thing about 1L They claim there has .
been foul play. I am guarding the
grave every night, which I can't
atand much longer.
"Now we are willing to have the
body exhumed, but we want tt done
In a. lawful manner, and done in the
day time, by the proper persona. We
fear the way athey are going at It:
that they are up to foul play." . .
In the letter Mr. Frlel cautioned
the sheriff to address mall to blm
care of the 8andy Poatofflce. He
said If aent to him at Cherryvllle be
feared the mall would not reach him.
His eon, John T. Friel, Jr., It poet
master at Cherryvllle. He waa re
cently fined $.16 on an alleged charge
of attacking a neighbor.
