TELLS HER STORY
NOT ENOUGH TO CONVICT
Perry and Roger .. Snyder, Sr.,
Killed In Aetemsbila Accident
Last Satyr sy.
Mrs. Carey M. Snyder was in
Ililbiboro all day Saturday, sum
moned here on a subpoena, and
in consultation with Deputy Dis
trict Attorney Tongue until the af
ternoon train, wbeu she went to
Portland. In tQ evening she
granted an interview with an Ore
gonian reporter, which follows, and
it probably the truth about the
mystery surrounding the death of
her husband, so far as she knows.
The news of the death of her hus
band's father in an automobile acci
dent at Kansas City, reached her
while talking with the reporter. It
seems that she has about as much
trouble as one woman can bear, but
she is holding up bravely through
them all. Her first husband was
killed by her own brother, her sec
ond husband was murdered near
TJlencoe, and now comes the news
of the death in an automobile acci
dent of R. M. Snyder, Carey Sny
der's father. TheOregonianofSuu-
day morniug contained the follow
ing: Admitting the connection of her
murdered husband, Carey M. Sny
der, with the plot to rob the Forest
Grove bank and witli other crimes,
projected, but wver carried out,
Mrs. Madge Snyder baturday night
told what she asserts to be all the
circumstances so tar as sue knows
them, surrounding the sensational
Washington county murder, which
the officers of the law have been
probing for months past. She de
clared that George Perry and a man
named Rodeers robbed the bank
aud that her husband had planned
to take a handji (be crime, al
though the others tvl vhe job with
out him, and afterwault killed him
because of his knowledge of the af
For weeks Mrs Snydet has poi-
tively refused to say anything which
would link her husband's name with
the bank robbery, or any other
crime, but sue now ireely admits
his connection with it. Her changed
attitude she attributes to the action
of R. M. Snyder, her lather in law,
who was accidentally killed in Kan
sas City yesterday.
"I refuse to connect my husband
with the robbery, she said last
night at the Hotel Portland, "be
cause K. M. anyaer askea me to
say nothing which would put a
stigma on the Snyder name. While
writing me letters to show the offi
cials, in which he told me to tell
verything, 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 toward
me, but I lound later that he had
written to the officials telling them
to investigate my relations with
George Perry. This was prompted
by newspaper clippings, implying
that my relations were not what
they should be. I sent him the
clippings myself, but he thought
they came from the officers.
"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 ex
pert 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
disagreement with them, and the
other two. My husband's falling
out with Perry and Rogers was due
to his refusal to participate in hold
ing up the box office of the Heilig
Theatre, then called the Belasco.
This job was to have been done on
the Tuesday preceding the bank
robbery, but when ray husband
was called up on the telephone from
Portland he refused to go down and
participate in the robbery of the
theater. I do not know why he re
fused, 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 carry
ing away the plunder, saying that I
would not be suspected, but that a
man carrying satchels of plunder
would be apprehended. They had
intended to murder the clerk in or
der to rob this store.
"The bank was to have been rob
bed Wednesday night. Carey rode
away from home on horseback that
nieht and did not return until near
lv momin?. He was furious be-
ratiu the other men had failed to
meet him. The bank was robbed
the following Friday.
"When my husband learned,
three davs 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 Port
land to find Perry,' be said. 'When
I get him he will have to give me a
snare of the money, and if he re
fuses to do so either he will co down
and out or I shall.' He then left
aud that was the last I ever saw of
him. It is evident that he was the
one to go down and out.
"Iam of the opinion that after
my husband came to Portland he
drove out with Perry aud Rogers to
a spot where the money was sup
posed to be concealed. I le was told,
I have uo doubt, that he was to be
given a share of the plunder.
When they arrived at the spot he
was murdered in cold blood and his
body carried to the place where it
was recently found."
The story told by Mrs. Snyder
last night is practically the same as
that she related to Deputy District
Attorney Tongue and a court sten
ographer 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 tor the arrest of Perry.
This would probably have been
done last evening had District At
torney Allen not been absent from
Hillsboro. As it is a warrant will
probably be issued within a few
days, and in the meantime officials
in the Rast will keep track of Perry.
It is said that the officials have
no knowledge of the identity of
Rogers other than what they have
gained from Mrs. Snyder. Howev
er, they have known of his alleged
connection with the affair for some
time, and have found that he re
ceived his mail at the Cornelius
postoffice during the period preced
ing the frorest, Grove robbery.
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 the bank robbery.
"I think it was dynamite," she
said last night. "It was some kind
of explosive with (uses. The offi
cials have asked me to go with them
to the place where it is buried I
will remain here for some time, but
I do not belie , e that I can remem
ber where I buried it."
Mrs. bnytler expressed sorrow
when she was told of the death of
R. M Snvder.
"My God, it seems that troubles
will never 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
all this aloiit Carey and the account
of his father's death printed on the
"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 investi
gate the murder of Carey."
In her story Mrs. Snyder told of
much harsh treatment at her hus
band's hands. She said that he
beat her repeatedly because she re
fused 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 asserted, was entirely in defer-

FIRST ON THE PACIFIC COAST
A Plant for the Manufacture of De
natured Alcohol la to Go In
The first denatured alcohol plant
on the Coast is to be erecied just
outside of Portland shortly after the
first of next year, when the law
passed by the last session of cougress
removing the duty on alcohol, goes
The plant is to be located ou the
400 acre ranch owned by Dr. C. W.
Cornelius, on the Peninsula, be
tween Columbia river and Columbia
slough. Dr. Cornelius has just dis
posed of the whole ranch to the
company, which is to be known as
the Pacific Alco Fuel Company, a
stock concern, which has been in
corporated under the laws of Oregon
with a capitalization of 1150,000.
It is backed by Eastern capital.
The incorporators, however, are all
local people, as follows: J. B. Lab
er, secretary of the Board of Trade;
Attorney Alex Sweek aud J. M.
Lay. The plant will cost in the
neighborhood of $50,000, the re
mainder of the purchase price of the
land and the working capital.
According to the prorpectus of
the company, which has just been
prepared, the purpose of the com
pany is to manufacture and sell "de
natured and denaturalized alcohol,
for use as fuel, light and power."
The important considerations
which led to the selection of the
Cornelius farm for the site are that
the plant will be near the required
quantities of raw material, and where
they are best and cheapest, where
there is a market fr all the alcohol
that can be madt., w here gasoline
and kerosene sell lor highest prices.
The plant will le on tin water front,
where the raw material can le gath
ered and the finished product mar
keted daily by the company's line
of boat. The company also plans
to go into the hog-raising industry,
and will fatten the poikers on the
vegetable rcluse from the plant.
Of the 40a acres in the ranch, it
is expected that 350 acres will be
planted in potatoes, which are used
in the manufacture of the deuatur-,
ed product. As a side issue, a con
siderable portion of the tract will be
devoted to sugar-beet culture, a pro
duct which will grow admirably, it
is said, in the slough lands along
the Columbia river bottoms. It is
estimated that the potatoes will
yield from 500 to 600 bushels to the
acre and the sugar beets from 30 to
