Letter Written to Vermont Bank
3i anted as Executor in Will
Discovered In Cache.
No further light was thrown yester
day on the mystery surrounding a
cache discovered in the underbrush
of Macleay park containing the will
and private papers of Fred N. Braley.
former banker of Barre, Vt., who has
been missing since January, 1919.
Whether the banker met with foul
play and the murderer hid his effects
in this secluded nook, or Mr. Braley
made use of the hiding place to se
crete personal papers and disappeared
without disclosing it to anyone, are
questions which the discovery does
Though a list of the articles found"
has been filed with County Clerk Bev
eridge by Attorney George W. Gear
hart, to whom the finders, Ben Bech
tel and Charles L. Miner turned them
over, and lists have been posted in
the courthouse and on the bridges
across the Willamette, no claim was
made to them yesterday. Mr. Gear
hart is writing a Vermont bank,
named as executor in the will found,
concerning the discovery.
The attorney believes it very likely
that a trustee for the estate may al
ready have been appointed In Ver
mont, due to the long ' unexplained
absence of Mr. Braley, to take care
of his property in that state. The dis
covery leads the lawyer to the con
clusion that Mr. Braley either is dead
or demented. The missing man left
J5000 to a housekeeper and the rest
of his estate chiefly to charitable in
stitutions in trust, and it is not be
lieved he had any close relatives.
Several cousins are said to be living
in Vermont but they have not yet
been heard from.
The will . may be filed without
charge and kept in the records of the
county clerk's office until a relative
or debtor seeks appointment as ex
ecutor. FACULTY IS INCREASE!
