Hitlsbrrj, Or., Oct. 27. Before
District Attorney Harmon Allen,
hie deputy, E. B. Tongue, and oth
er officials, Mr. Madge Snyder, re
lated a marvelous confession of
crime thit morning, involving her
dead buebend and others in a series
of jobs tb&t vie in sensational dar
ing with the wildest etories of yel
low back fijtion.
Among toej ibs that were to have
been undertaken by her reckless
husband mi desecrate companions
was tbe holding up of tbe box office
of the He ilig theatre . in Portland
Another pln involved tbe robbery
or fan Marx s jewelry store on
Third street. .Plane of other crimes
were equa ly as eensational were
told by the widow. Many of tbe
plots were overheard by her, ehe
eaid, as sbe lay hidden behind
haymow in tbe barn where hr bus
band and bi9 companions met to do
' Openly and unhesitatingly sbe
-told today of .the plan to rob tbe
Foiest Grove bank. Ihe deed was
planned hy her late husband and
a man named Rogers, ehe declared
Her husband and Rogers quarreled
ebe said and it was because of tbe
quatrel that Carey M. Snyder did
not participate in the actual rob
bery. Sbe aho told where the ni
troglyctrine, dvnamite caps and
fuse, poit ons of which were used
in blowing the vault of the Forest
Groee bank, were buried near their
home near Glencoe.
Sbe further told how ehe had
been cruelly beaten and bruised by
her hu-band and his pirate crew
c-e ciuse sne reiusea, to c-ecome an
accessary , to their conspiracy to
murder mi rob. Once, she said
her husband fired two shots at her
in the hope of inttmidating her and
forcing ter to take part in the
crimes be planned. . The shots were
fired in their home and the bullets
buried themselves in the wall of
their living room..
The widow appeared here today
in response to a subpoena eerved
upon ber by tbe district attorney
diiectine her appearance belore
Judge McBride. For weeks Bhe has
bafflei every effort on the part of
the tffiaials to induce her to divulge
her secret, and threatened to return
to ber home in Kansas Cily.
Stie arrived here from Portland
this morning. She professes resent
ment toward tbe officials and offi
cers who have teen working on tbe
tase and alio claims that her life is
in danger as a result of her confes
sion implicating George: Perry in
the murder of ber husband. Offi
cers ani others, however, who know
tbe woman plaoe little cred-nce in
her alleged fears. Sbe doesn't
know tbe meaning of tbe word, they
"Perry came to visit my husband
and me in the early part of June,
1905," continued Mrs. Snyder. "I
soon saw be wielded a bad influence
over my husband and I tried to get
Carey to ask him to leave. My hus
band grew brutal to me under Per
ry s domination, and many times
struck and kicked me. Once he
knocked me down with a chair and
kicked me becauee I detected him
cheating at a game of cards with
Perry acd myself. Perry hated me
and never offered to interfere.
"On Saturday, Nov. 25, my hus
band and I went to Portland, and
from there duck hunting. We got
back to Portland Sunday evening.
The plan of Perry and my husband
was to rob the pawnshop next
morning. Oar room was on Fourth
street, not far from Oak. lit, . was
the corner of Oak street, on Fourth
which meant I had consented to
pick up valises containing plunder
when they had been left at Fourth
and Yamhill streets sod carry them
aboard the train, after leaving tbe
pawnshop, lor fear somebody might
detect them on description.
"Carey got up at 5 A. M. and
left tbe house; I did cot pasB tbe
corner as expee'ed and they were
afraid to do the job. On the way
to Hillsboro that morning my hus
band was so angry that - he would
not speak to me. . At Hillsboro we
met rogers, just arrived from Kan
sas City. He bad made tbe mis
take of going to Cornelius, rerry
said Snyder had shown a fac simi
le of bis handwriting to the cl?rk
in the Cornelius poetoffice and had
obtained two letters be sent rerry.
which would bave landed both in
the penitentiary if received by offi
ciale. This man had a lot cf ni
troglycerine with him aswediscov
ered afterward. My husbandandRog-
ers, said to be one of tbe best, fate
cracksmen in tbe country, returned
to Portland Monday afternoon and
I went to the farm Tuesday morn
ing. ''That night I met my huBband
with a carriage; be gave me an aw
ful beating for refusing to cairy the
grips aboard the train and tbus pre
venting the pawnshop robbery.
Carey afterward told me be and
Peiry and Rogers left Portland
Monday night for Forest Grave,
arriving there at midnight, and in
spected the bank premises. Then
they went to Hillsboro and under
cover of night broke into a grocery
store to get something to eat acd
spent the remainder of the night
sleeping iu a box car. Tuesday Ca
rey talked over tbe telephone with
Perry in Portland. Perry used the
name of Leaby, clerk in the North
west gunstore, and Eaid be was
ready for that dock bunt. This
meant ready for the robbery of the
theatre. My husband told Perry
he would not come and tbey used
words showing an?er.
'Friday night, December 1, tte
bank was robbed: Carey did not
bear of it until two days later.
Then be was furious and 6aid: "Per
ry and Rogers have doue that j.b
without me. Tby will bave to di
vide." ; .
"He was especially angry when
he learned tbey got only $6,000,
and said there was moed than $50,
000 in the bank and that most, of it
had been transferred to Portland
00 Thursday. He declared the
failure to get a bigger amoutt was
due to their not meeting him Wed
"The plunder was to be buried
a mile from our house. Cirep be
ing led to believe that he was to re
ceive a part of the plunder, and
that on reaching the spot he was

to a high pitch, Franth J. Heney,
tbe prosecutor of tbe grafters, leaned
acroes tbe table ia Judge Graham's
court this afternoon and, shaking
bis finger ia Abe Ruef'siace, stout:
"These are the men, these are tbe
graiters we are after."
Jsjlt was the concluding scene in
the court drama in which Ruef and
William H. Langdoa had sought
for recognition as district attorcey,
Langdon, who was removed from
office last night at the dictate of
Ruef, refused to vacate the office.
Judge Graham reserved his decision
until next Monday.
Heney appeared in tbe capacity
of assistant to Langdon. The re

Acting Mayor Gallagher when it

people gathered about the court

him. As it was, Dr. C. Beasley,

KILLED BY MOTOR GAR
MILLIONAIRE SNYDER IS2
KILLED IN AN AUTOMO
Life Like His D.ath Was Tragic
Under Indictment for Bribery
Paid Councilman $00,000
Kansas City, Oot. 27. Robert
M. Suyder, millionaire banker and
promoter, met death in his automo
bile here at 6:30 o'clock tonight.
His chauffeur, Frank M. Schroeder,
attempted to steer clear of a mes
senger boy on a bicycle the machine
collided with the boy and the curb
stone at the . same moment. The
shock threw snyder from his seat
and bis head struck on an iron trol
ley pole. Soyder was at once car
ried to the Agnew hospital. He
died there upon bis arrival. His
skull had been fiactured. Arthur
Odell, the messenger boy,, received
injuries that willl probably cause
hi? death. The driver was not hurt. ,
Tbe death oi Robert M. Snyder
was as his life tragic. He was un
der indictment at tbe time of his
death in connection with the brib
ery of members of tbe St. Louis
city council. Joseph W. Folk, now
governor of Missouri, waB at that
time ciicuit attorney in St. Louis,
and was the prosecutor. This is tha
story be proved: .
Snyder went to St. Louis in 1898
as. a street railway prone o'er. He
rented an expensive suit of rooms
in one of the large down town hotels,
which he stocked with fine cigars
and liquors. Then he invited to
these moms men of influence with
the members of the city assembly.
Tbe Central Traction bill was
through both houses of the council,
but was vetoed by the mayor. It !
bad to be passed again over tha
veto. Then U hoff, who was in
tbe council, demanded $5o,ooo for
his vot. Snyder gave it to him,
and borrowed it back again 'he
next night. Then he went to New
Uthoff Joilowed. In another cafe
scene, where champagne flowed
freely, Snyder presented a letter,
exonerating himself. He told Ut- '
hoff be would get $51, 000 if be
signed it, otherwise nothing. Ut
hoff signed the statement.
"You are as far above giving a
bribe as I am above receiving."
Snyder was sentenced to five
years in the penitentiary, but tbe
supreme court reversed aod re
manded the judgment to tbe lower
court. Recently a new indictment
wai returned against him by the St.
L -nis grand jury.
C rey M. Snyder, a son of Robert
M. Snyder, was convicted of hold
ing up and robbing a Kansas City
pawnbroker of $6,000 in diamonds
