Allege That They Have Surround
ed George Peny, Cousin of
Murdered Man, With Net
of Direct and Convinc- '
( Portland, Oct. 9. Portland Jour
Inal: With the aid of Kansas City
officers and Mrs. Madge Snyder,
widow of Carey M. Snyder, whose
body was found near Hillsboro hst
Monday, officials of Washingten
county believe they are about to
solve the mystery connected with
the Forest Grove bank robbery and
the subsequent murder of Snyder.
In ferreting out the details of the
crimes they claim to have surround
ed George Perry, Soyder's couein,
with a net of evidence eo diiect and
convicting that a warrant for his
arrest may be issued at any time.
Perry was living at Snyder's home
at the time of the, bank robbery and
disappearance of Snyder and shared
his confidence as well as his hospi
tality. KV .
From Kansas City it was learned
today that on his eeturn there Perry
had $3,000 in cash in his possession.
He also had some mineral samples
which he claimed to have purchased
in Colorado. The sum of $6,000
was eeccred bv those who looted
the Forest Grove bank and detec
lives declare mat tne crime was
committed by two men, who divid
ed the booty.
It was because of bia attempt to
"declare himself in" on the plunder
that Sayoer met his death, officers
declare. They are convinced that
Snyder ted bis wife had taken part
in the original plans of the robbery
and " hav reason" to " believe that
Snyder as "double crossed" by
the two uuen wh i successfully exe
cuted the daricg plan
Perry is well known to the police
of Kantas City. He was once ar
rested with Snvder on the charge
of highway robbery, but wae acquit
ted. He spent several weeks at the
Snyder home during the fall of lg05
and with him was a brother of Mrc.
Snyder's brother-in-law was known
by the name of Rogers and alio by
the name of Brashear.
He had other namss in various
localities where he lived. On his
return to Kansas City Perry told a
number of his friends that Leonard
B 11 bad visited the Snyder ranch
with him. Officers are now Uying
to ascertain whether or not the man
Rogers or Brashear may not have
Leonard Bell has a criminal re
cord iu Kansas City and other parts
of the country that is rarely equaled
in daring and success. Though he
has succeeded in escaping punish
ment tor a number of. the crimes
with which he has been charged,
be has also been convicted. He
was arrested in Clay county, Mis
souri, for attempting to rob a bank
and as a result served Beven years
in the penitentiary at Jefferson
City. He is said to be an expert
in the use of nitroglycerin., He
was formerly a cellmate with Perry
and it was in a prison ceil that the
t'oman who afterward became Mrs
ouAder met the man she married.
In connection with Bella's record as
a nitroglycerin artist officers remem
ber that, the vault of the Forest
(jrove ban was opened by means
of that exploeiv .
In view of her relationship with
the two men who visited her hus
band just before the bank robbery,
officers are positive that Mrs Sny
der is able to aid them materially
in solving the mystery. - When she
visited Hillsboro on Sunday she
convinced those with whom she
talked that she knew far more of
the crime than she has. ever told
Unable to resist the desire to visit
her old home, she went to Hillsboro
Sunday. Officers - were expecting
her. They questioned her so close
ly, however, that she quickly real
ized the value they placed on her
testimony, and quietly left the town
Sunday evening. Washington conn
ty officials succeeded in locating
her in this, city by. ; long distance
telephone that evening and to Act
ing Coroner Badgely she promised
to return on Monday. She failed
to do so, however, and a subpoena
