SAYS SHE BELIEVES THAT
GEORGE PERRY MURDER
ED HER HUSBAND.
His Motive for the Crime Was to
Hash Forever tbe Lips Thut
' Could Tell of Perrv'e Guilt
in Robbing the Forest
Portlnnd, Oct." 14 Portland
JoiiiiimI: There was only one mo
tive for tne murder of Carey M.
Soydtr, tne myetery of whosedeath
may yet be solved, and there is only
one pi r-on who could have done
the deed, sccordiog to Mrs. Madge
Snyder, widow of the young man
wbofe remains were found in aloDe
ly thicket near Glencoe two weeks
Thai pereon was George Ptrry,
Mrs. Snyder believes, and the mo
tive for tbe crime was to lorever
hush the story of his guilt in con
nection with the Forest Grove bank
robbery. Sj she told District At
Un ey Harrison Allen, his deputy,
T. H. Tongue, . and Detective
Vaughn during the secret inquisi
tion at the Portland hotel yesterday
Mrs. Snyder's assertions are cor
roborated by A. E. Cooper of Kan
sas City, personal attorney for R.
M. Snyder, father of the murdered
man. In an interview with the
Journal yesterday Mr. Cooper, who
has consulted with both Mrs. Sny
der and the dead man's father with
reference to the case, said:
"There was only one , motive for
the crime, and there is only one
person who could have killed Ca
rey Snyder. I . will not Bay who
the persm was, or what tbe motive
wa?, but Mrs. Snyder knows and
she will tell."
When shown the attorney's stata-
mpnt last nigM, she expressed her
othtf m Peiry's. guilt, and said
that, so far as she knew, there could
have been no other motive tnan a
desire on the part of tbe robbers of
tbe bank to close tbe lips of one
who knew of their guilt,
At yesterday's icquitition Mrs
Snyder, whose sphynx-like silence
durinp tbe past week has caused no
end of worry to Washington county
officials' relented sufficiently to ex
press her belief in Perry 's guilt and
at tbe same time gave her reasons
for her belief. . Her testimony may
be Sufficient to convict her husband's
slayers. -. -, - .
'As a result of their efforts to ex
tort tbe woman'a Etory from her,
officials last night declared that
they had by no means ended their
investigations. Though no official
elatemant was given out with ref
erence to what transpired during
the secret session, it is stated that
a warrant is to be Issued for Perry's
arrest. It is also said that instruc
tions were wired to ; Kansas City
last night to prevent bis escape
from that city, if he has not already
The widow of the murdered man
also expressed her belief that Perry
had lett Kansas Uity on reading tbe
newspaper accounts of the crime
and his alleged connection with it.
She declared the statement that
Perry was Snyder's cousin was er
roneous, saying that there was no
relationship between the two men.
He visited at their home near Glen
coe before the bank robbery, she
Baid, and had hot been seen since
the! disappearance of her husband.
In their efforts to clear away the
mystery surrounding tbe double
crime, officers have been unable gto
establish the identity of the other
man who is said to have taken part
in tbe bank robbery and the mur
der of Snyder. For a time it was
believed that Leonard Bell, a noted
nitroglycerine artiet, who has fig
ured in numerous crimes, may have
been here at tbe tirrje. Information
from Kansas Citv, however, is to
tbe effect that he was confined in
tbe state penitentiary at tbe time
ot the Forest Grove bank robbery
and the murder of Snyder. -
Officials who are conducting the
investigation express themselves as
fairly satisfied with the result of
yesterday's interview with Mrs.
Snyder. However tkey refuse to
state just what action will be taken
as tbe result cf tbe light the woman
threw upon the crimes.
A. L. Cooper, attorney for R. M.
Snyder, denies that his client has
f-ealed the lips of the widow. He
declares that tbe elder Snyder is
desirous of bringing the murderers
to trial. The Journal received the
following from Kansas City last
Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 13. R.
M. Snyder is out of the city. A. L.
Cooper, personal attorney for Sny
der, also Carey Soyder's attorney
in the robbery trials here, says he
is assured no conditiens or restric
tions were imposed on the widow
of her telling the facts as she un
ders'ands tbem before she left Kan
sas City for Oregon.
Cooptr and Snyder talked to the
wlc!ow in Cooper's .office before she
left. Snyder is desirous of -haviEg
bis eon s slayer brought to justice
Cooper-says that thera was only
one motive and only one pereon
who could have killed Carey. He
wouldn't eay who the pereon was
or what the motlvp, but eays the
widow can tell, ihe lawyer eays
Mr. Snyder beard of conversations
between Carey atd a companion in
which Caiey iefufed to enter into
the bank robberw, although be was
urged to do so. Cooper is sure Sny
der didn't seal the widow s hps be
fore she left Kansas City. He says
that if sue restrictions have been
placed on her ttev must be with

atreet for the new tunnel station

what clearly is an old slave prison.
The pen is composed of narrow cells
in three tiers, with three-foot corri
dors between tbe heavy walls.
Heavy iron bars covered the wind
ows, and in each cell were manacle
supports. Directly above the cells
is tbe houee of Stephen Guard, the
eccentric millionaire, who gave Gi
rard college to Philadelphia, and
whose estate is now valued at hun
dreds of millions. It was in tear

tion Co.had bought from tbe Uirard
trust, that tbe workmen cameacroes
It has long been banded down in
local history that Girard drove a
brisk elava tiade and that some of
his fortune came from dealing , in
negroee. As soon, as the discovery
was made the board of trustees pi

dungeons. They were not allowed
to examine them, but will be per
mitted to do so tomorrow. The
cells run six to a tier, each is large
enough to hold six men packed in

punishment will be abolished in

or jury verdict if John J. Fitzpat

He is president of the Chicago Fed
eration of Labor, which is on record
against the death penalty for any
crime, and announced his determ
ination to refuse to carry out any
death sentence if he became sheriff.

Washington, D. C, Oct. 12.
