Cffort Btlng Wade to Find Hidden Pioperty of Nerjro'o Estate. authrle. Ok.. Jan. 19. Efforts ,are now being made by the peoplo of Rulil to locate the whereabouts of $10,000 In cash, which was left at the ueatli recently of Basil I.et, an aged negro, who hnd mado that city tils homo for many years. Tho money was hidden, tho owner not bollovlng in banks, and tho secret of tho hiding place died with him. There is an Interesting story in con nection with the llfo of Lee. He wns 78 years old, nnd hnd bcon a slave for thirty years in Louisiana before cman clpation, a chattel of the Cannon fanv lly, where ho was treated with great favor. I.lko Undo Tom, however, ho wan sold Just prior to tho closo of tho war to a hard taskmaster, who looked with determination upon tho tall straight, muscular form of the young darky. He put Leo to work turning a !an;o feed mill, presumably a two horse power. To this ho was harness' cd, and day aftor day tolled In this manner. Finally his powerful strength being entirely broken down by tho heavy work, he was carried from the mill to Ills hut, presumably to die lly tho tlmo tho war closed, howover, ho was able to walk, and started inr mediately for tho north, whoro he ro mnlncd until coming to Enid at the opening of the Chorokee Strip In 1893 Tho long, hard work produced a hump on hi? back, a mark of servitude which romalned with him until his death.' Upon securing hlB freedom, Leo ho- enmo a mlaor, secreting ovorythlng that came Into his possession. Al though working at the humbje colling of city scavenger of Enid, he loft tho sum of $10,000 when ho died, tho whoreabouts of which is now a my- tory. Ho steadfastly refused to ill vulgo tho hldlng-placo, bollovlng he would again got well. Just before he died ho attempted to speak, ovldontly to tell whero the monoy wai hidden but fell back upon his pillow and expired.
