Admits Husband Was Impli
cated in Forest Grove
Bank Robbery.
Actual Work Done by George Perry
and Professional Crack Bnrglar
Named Rogers Says They Later
Murdered Her Husband.
Admitting the connection of her mur
dered husband, Carey M. Snyder, with the
plot to rob the Forest Grove bank and
with other crimes, projected, but never
carried out, Mrs. Madge Snyder last night
told what 6he asserts to be all the cir
cumstances so far as she knows them,
surrounding the sensational 'Washington
County murder, which the officers of the
law have been probing for months past.
She declared that George Perry and a
man named Rogers robbed the bank and
that her husband had planned to take a
hand in the crime, although the others
did the Job without him. and afterwards
killed him because of his knowledge of
the affair.
For weeks Mrs. Snyder has positively
refused to say anything which would link
her husband's name with the bank rob
bery, or any other crime, but she now
freely admits his connection with it. Her
changed attitude she "attributes to the
action of R. M Snyder, her father-in-law,
who was accidentally killed In Kan
sas City yesterday.
"I refused to connect my husband with
the robbery." she said last night at the
Hotel Portland, "because R. M. Snyder
asked me to say nothing which would put
a stigma on the Snyder name. While
writing me letters to show the officials.
In which he told me to tell everything, he
also sent me private letters, asking me
to keep Carey's name out of It. I did so.
thinking he was acting in good faith to
ward me. but I found later that he had
written to the officials telling them to in
vestigate my relations with George Perry.
This was prompted by newspaper clip
pings, implying that my relations with
Perry were not what they should be. I
sent him the clippings myself, but he
thought they came from the officers.
Snyder Imported a Bnrglar..
"My husband was to have robbed the
bank In company with a man named
Rogers, who came out here from Kansas
City at his request. He told me that
Rogers was an expert safe-breaker, but
that he had never been detected in any
crime. Perry was also in the plan to rob
the bank, but my husband had a disa
greement with them, and the other two
"My husband's falling out with
Pei ry and Rogers was due to his re
fusal to participate in holding up the
box office of the Heilig Theater, then
called tho Belasco. This job was to
have been done on the Tuesday pre
ceding the bank robbery, but when my
husband was called up on the tele
phone from Portland he refused to go
down and participate in the robbery
of the theater. I do not know why
he refused, but I do know that the
other men were angry because of it.
"Previously the three men had
planned to rob Dan Marx' jewelry
store in Portland, and they tried to
Induce me to take a part by carrying
away the plunder, saying that I would
not be suspected. bu,t that a man car
rying satchels of plunder would be
apprehended. They had intended to
murder the clerk in order to rob this
"The bank was to have been robbed
"Wednesday night. Carey rode away
from home on horseback that night
and did not return until nearly morn
ing. He was furious because the other
men had failed to meet him. The bank
was robbed the following Friday.
"When my husband learned, three
days later, of the robbery, he said that
the other men had done it without
him and swore that they must divide.
'I am going to Portland to find Perry."
he said. "When I get him he will have
to give me a share of the money, and
if he refuses to do so either he will
go down and out or I shall.' He then
left and that was the last T ever saw
of him. It is evident that he was the
one to do down and out.
Was Lured to His Death.
"I am of the opinion that after my
husband came to Portland he drove
out with Perry and Rogers to a spot
where the money was supposed to be
concealed. He was told, I have no
doubt, that he was to be given a share
of the plunder. When they arrived
at the spot he was murdered in cold
blood s.nd his body carried to the place
where it was recently found."
The story told by Mrs. Snyder last
right is practically the same as that
she related to Deputy District Attor
ney Tongue and a court stenographer
earlier in the day. It is asserted that
this statement supplies the necessary
link in the evidence which the officials
already have, and will form a basis
for issuing a warrant for the arrest
of Perry. This would probably have
r-een done last evening had District
Attorney Allen not been absent from
Hillshoro. As it is a warrant will prob
ably be issued within a few days, and
in the meantime officials in the Bast
will keep track of Perry.
If is said that the officials have no
knowledge of the identity of Rogers
other than what they have gained
from Mrs. Snyder. However, they
have known of his alleged connection
with the affair for some time, and
have found that he received his mall
at the Cornelius postofflce during the
reriod preceding the Forest Grove rob-r-ery.
In her confession to the officials
Mrs Snyder told of the hiding of a
quantity of dynamite near her home.
the explosive having been intended for
use in tne bank robbery.
"I think it was dynamite." she said
last night. it was tom. kind of ex
plosive with fuses. The officials have
sked me to go with them to the place
where it is buried. I will remain here
jit m'ihf nine, out x co not believe
that I can remember exactlv where I
buried it."
Mrs Snyder expressed sorrow when she
aas told of the death of R. M Snyder.
Deeply Affected by Xews.
"My God. it seems that troubles will
r.ever cease." she exclaimed "I do not
know that I would have told all that I
have today if I had known of this. It is
awful to have al! this about Carey and
The account of his father's death printed
on the same day.
"But then I cannot help but feel this
way about it," she concluded "R. M.
Snyder would probably never have been
killed if he had come to Oregon and
helped investigate the murder of Carey."
In her story Mrs. Snyder told of muoh
harsh treatment at her husband's hands.
Phe said that he beat her repeatedly be
cause she refused to Join with him in the
crimes he planned, and that he kicked her
and struck her in the face.
Her unwillingness to mention his name
in connection with the crimes, she assert
ed, was entirely in deference to the re
quest of his father, and not because she
wished to shield Carey.
Deputy District Attorney Tongue last
night gave out the following statement:
Tongue May Drop Case.
'Aside from what has been told by Mrs.
Snyder and published weeks ago, there
was no evidence given out today that
would have any weight before a Jury as to
who were the murderers of Carey M.
Snyder. We have been greatly hampered
by fictitious stones in the newspapers.
As a matter of fact. Mrs.- Snyder long
since stated that she believed that Perry
and another man were responsible for her
husband's death. It appears that she has
given no evidence that will lead to convic
tion. "It requires evidence to conviot any one
of murder, and evidence is what we lack.
Unless we get more than we now have
there is not the remotest probability of a
warrant being issued and the case must
be dropped."

Bombs Thrown In Heart of Capital
Wreck Cashier's Carriage and
$200,000 Is Taken While
Battle Goes On,'
ST. PETERSBURG-, Oct. 27. The most
daring robbery plot in the annals of the
St. Petersburg police was executed today
when at about noon a band of 15 revo
lutionists armed with bombs and revolv
ers attacked the cashier of the custom
house, who was proceeding in a carriage
from a sub-treasury with a sum variously
given as $120,000 to $300,000. They wrecked
the vehicle with a bomb, but were driven
off by two gendarmes forming the cash
ier's escort, who made defense of the

his assiBtant and two guards Jumped out
of the carriage and fled in a panalc,
abandoning the money, but the gen
darmes, though wounded by the explo
sion, opened fire on the revolutionists.
They were soon joined by some passing
soldiers and several policemen and the
robbers, who were mere youths, fled be
fore the growing numbers of the defend
ers of the treasure.
Lose Battle, but Get Cash.
A running fight ensued, lasting 15 min
utes and extending for several blocks
from the scene of the outrage. The revo
lutionists, who threw two or three more
bombs in their flight, lost two killed and
had five of their number captured, 'ine
firing of the rifles and revolvers and the
explosions of the bombs were audible
throughout the business aisinct k tma
caused great excitement.
After the explosion $120,000 in paper cur
rency was recovered from the wreck
of the cashier's carriage. The police of
ficials who conducted the preliminary in
vestigation said this was the entire sum
involved, but according to the accounts
of eye witnesses of the affair, when the
gendarmes abandoned the carriage to pur
sue the robbers, a woman ran out or.
the house from which the revolutionists
issued, seized a large package of money
and escaped in the confusion which fol
lowed. The panic-stricken cashier, they
said, bewailed . the loss of $180,000.
Later in the day, however, the total
amount in the cashier's possession was
officially stated to have been $330,000, of
which the package containing $196,000 was
stolen, but it is said that the amount or
booty may be raised to $200,000, as the
count of the smaller packages hae not
yet been finished.
Careful Plan of Attack.
The scene of the attack was carefully
chosen in a narrow street .bordering on
the Ekaterinsk canal and overhung by a
house, from one of whose windows the
first bomb was thrown. Immediately
after the explosion a group of revolution
ists on the sidewalk drew revolvers and
attempted to surround the carriage, with
the result already detailed. Ihe lorce oi
the explosion shook three blocks of
houses, and many of these now show the
marks of bullets fired during the fight be
tween the revolutionists and officers.
In spite of wholesale arrests and the
cordoning at noon of the scene of the
robbery, a majority of the revolutionists
have made good their escape with booty
amounting to $200,000. Up to midnight
the police had no definite clews and re
leased all those persons arrested except
the five who were captured during the
battle. None of these has been identi
fied. All of them persistently refuse to
answer questions, but it is supposed the
crime was organized and executed by a
band of Moscow and Warsaw revolution
ists, of whose coming to St. Petersburg
the police were warned ten days ago.
Confederate in Customs-House.
It is said that, because of intimate
knowledge of the method of transfer
ring money, the men had a confederate
in the customs-house service.
The police report of the affair con
firms the above story in all its essential
details. Two robbers were killed and
five captured, one of the latter being clad
in the garments of a student He was
slightly wounded by splinters from a
bomb which he threw against his pur
suers. Three gendarmes, the cashier, a
house porter and a civilian were slightly
injured. One woman was dangerouslyl

clergymen may take up the case of Mrs.
Alice Phelps of Kansas City, who has
attempted to persuade her daughters,
