The Town of Hanover's safe has slipped a gear or something and town officials have been unable to gain access to important documents. After two days of work by the Portland Safe Company the door remains tightly closed. MacNeale and Urban along with E.C. Morris manufactured the safe. E.C. Morris was the selling agent. A news item from the New York Times dated Jan. 18, 1896 reported that E.C. Morris had been missing from Boston for about two weeks. It appeared as if he was deeply in debt due to speculation. It was determined that he owned a large amount of money, much of it to personal friends. The Hanover safe is a very old safe, but it still does not open.
