The petition of the attorneys fer the
Delmarvla Telephone Company, asking
for a franchise to pat up telephone poles
was read. The communication stated
that the old board of directors was about
to be deposed
Director W. A. Pratt stated emphatlo
ally that he did not propose to graut any
franchise to people from other oltles for
speculative purposes, and before taking
any action, he wanted to hear from the
old Ijoard of directors.
Some time ego a party of reputable oitl
zsns asked for the franchise, end the
board was about to grant It when circum
stances arose which caused a bait to be
taken. He now propo3ed to defer action
until he was sore that the petitioners
meant business. President Chambers

directed to reply to the attorneys that
nothing would bs done until direct appli

Haivey J. Frlsble Tells of the
Wealth to Which He is Heir.
A Story of Untold Millions In Whloh
Pirates, Murderer's Blood, Diamonds,
Gold Miner, Forests nnd Cities Flgnra.
Enemies Won't Let Him Hnve HI*
If there Is anything In the extravagant
claims of Harvey J Frlsblo of 516 Ns w
Castle avsnne. South Wilmington hi Is
a very rleh mau, so rich la fact that the
Rothschilds aud Astors and Van derbllts
are only fairly well off by comparison,
and men with a few millions like Dela
ware's Mr. Addlcks are oomoaratl ve pau
A synopsis of Mr. Friable's claim to
wealth was published in yesterday's
Evening Journal, Bat the half was
not told.
Frlsble is a carpanter, In the employ of
the Labdell Car Wheel Company, at tbe
munificent salary of $8 per week He
Is apparently about 55 years old aud has
suffered from two strokes of paralysis
Ha talks of millions as ordinary people
talk of pennies, and he offered an Even
ing Journal reporter $1,000,000 for a
cipy of tbe Philadelphia Reoord of a
oertaln date with as much nonchalance
as a dude shows In paying a nickel for a
package of cigarettes.
The story told by FrLbls of hla
wealth that Is to be, tezds like thet
of the hero of some five oent novel. It
abounds In murders, poisoning, pirate«,
gold pelf, hidden treasure, burled money
eheste, stolen papers, villainy and gore
He makes charges of murder as freely
as though he were talking of a pleasant
summer outing and as be tells his audi
tor of the great wealth In store for him.
his eyes light np and an eagar longing
expression suffuses Ms face as though
he already saw the fu'fillment of his
According to hie story,he Is the heir of
three separate estates any one of whloh
Is large enough to make the whole
population of Wilmington rich.
The fortune to which he considers he
has tbe best right is that o! his fat hsr,
Minor I. Frlsble who died many years
Tbe story in his own words la as
follows: "My uncle, Myruu J Friable,
ran away from home wheu he wa* 11 or
12 years old He went to California to
the gold diggings and Immediately atrnek
It lieh, beooming wealthy beyond the
wildest dreams of avaries
"I was born in Branford, Conn., about
fifteen years after my nnole left home
He returned from the West while I wae
living with my father and bought prop
erty tu hie own name and In thB name of
my father. He had property In nearly
every etate in tbe union so as to give
film no trouble to get money when trav
ellng. He had cash In many banks and
besides had many financial agents all
over the world who always had a large
amount of his money on hand to be
Invested sdrantsgeoosly at any oppor
"He knew my father had so money and
he offered him $5,000 In gold for our
farm. My father refused to take tho
money, thinking It was all my uncle b»d,
but nnole Myrnn told him be could give
him as many millions wlthont feeling it
"My uncle told me once, slitting on a
log on our farm In Branford that he was
wortn $400,000,000 whsn he wsa 15
years old, and that tbe amount had
been steadily growing until It was Incal
culable. He had mines and real estate
everywhere He had gold and allver
mines tn California and Colorado, dia
mond mines In Brazil, lead mines in Col
orado and Nsvada coal mines tn Pennsyl
vania and West Virginia, pine forest* In
Michigan and real estate In New York
and Connecticut. *
"He bad brought home with him a box
of ebony about 3 feet long and weighing
about sixty-five pounds I noticed thet
he alwiys kept his eye on that box and I
got the Idea that there was something
valuable in '. it. Later developments
proved the com eines« of my supposition.
"My uncle left the box at the residence
of my aunt, Abigail Cook, who, woman
like, determined to find ont what was Iu
it. 8be fouod a key to fit It and opened
It one day In the abaenoe of my nnole.
"What sbe found almoBt ersztd her
with avarioe. The box wss filled almost
to tbe top with United States Govern
raent, railroad and olty and state bonds
Iu one corner was a little chamois bag.
She opened this and found that it
contained rubles, diamonds, emeralds and
petrls, enongb for a king's rausom.
* K.om that day my uncle was doomed
He bad already told me that be bad made
a will making me his heir. My aunt
schemed to get possession of the wealth
She told my nnole that I intended to kill
him so that I might Inherit his wealth I
heard of her charge and told my unole
that It was false He believed me and
stated that he bad a presentiment that
he was to be killed shortly, and to pro
teet me he gave me a paper stating that
he had left a box of bonds and deeds,
together with hie will, with a trust com
pxny In New York The paper oontatuel
an order on the trust company for tbe
delivery of the box to me. That paper
wes afterwards stolen from me by my
first cousin, Lawrence Frlsble.
"My ancle's will wes written by a
straw lawyer named Richard I Anderson
In my ancle's offices'. 93 Weil street.
New York and named Anderson and
Henry Hayes of New York as executors
The bulk of his fortune wes left to me,
tbongh sons wes glveu to other relative.*
"I searched for this will for years but
could not fled It until July 21. 1891,
wheu I accidentally came serose it wbll<
searoblng the records In tbe register or
wills office In New York city. I wae
just recovering from a stroke of paralysis
at the time end conld hardly see I
read abont a pige and a half of tbe doca
ment and tbe Signatare
"I employed a lawyer, Harry E. Eddie
to Investigate the will for me He found
that it placed in trust with Minor R.
Friable for the heirs, property aggre
gating $93.000.000 to $94 000.000
"My nnole was poisoned with areenl«
In the house of my aunt on tbe very
night she discovered those jewels tn his
box. Three of her ohildren told me after
her death that they saw her poison him
and that when he was dying, my father
came to the bouse
"My uncie told him he had been
poisoned end he wrote a will while
dying leaving ail his property to me,
Harvey J. Frlsble, ingmy fathers car*.''
He died the same night and my
father and my annt took his body to the
woods and bnrled It. I was away on a
vessel carrying cotton from Savannah
Georgia. to New Yoik when this
"Later Paschall T Southern, a promt
nent New York lawyer, offered his
services to me He found considerable
property that belonged to me bht when
he found that part of lha prcpirtyto
which I should havs title was sue on
which be and his brother held s big
mortgage, h^droppid me Tiryqnlokly
He found that t he

"Ou May 11 1808. the will wss (flared
for probate but 1 locked In vain for the
will until, as I told yon, July 21. 1801
''I employed then another New York
lawyer, Cliff >rd Bozte bn' be was either
fooled or b>nght off Wien the will
was presented ln 1S68 It d .posed only of
persoual property. Iu 1871 when It wss
copied on the record It had grawu until
It Inoludcd the house at No. 24 Fifteenth
street, New Yoik, and 181 acres of land
iu Michigan.
"Myrnu Friable's aistsr who was cog
Lisant of the manner of bis death had
written me several times tbst she hid
papers be'ouglug to me whloh would
prove my right to the property, hut she
refused to give them to me She went
to Shanghai, China and married there
a mau named Jobu Binon A ohild born
to them died there aud this unsettled
the woman's mind
"She cam« home to Branford partially

"Ou January 1, 1891 I put an adver
ilsement In the New York Herald forbid
ding anyone from wlthnoldlug these
pipers from me
"You have read, possibly, of several
unclaimed estates being left by parties In
New York and Philadelphia I hava
