THE TIORXING OREGONIAX SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1906. 3 WANT HOME RULE FOR PROVINCES Filipino Governors Propose a Radical Step to the Commission. " - PUT NATIVES IN MAJORITY Assembly of Governors Asks Com mission to Favor Local Autonomy. Opposition to Revival of Spanish Bead Law. MANILA. Oct . A radical change in the eystem of provincial government Is Imminent, if the Philippine Commission approves the recommendation of the as sembly of Provincial Governors now in session at Manila. The recommendation provides that another member of the provincial board shall be elected Instead of appointed. At present the Treasurer and School Superintendent are appointed. As they must be Americans, they con stitute a majority of the provincial boards. The Provincial Governors want a mem ber elected to replace the School Super intendent, thus giving the Filipinos a ma , Jorlty on all the boards. If Governor General Smith and the Commissioners approve the recommendation It -will prac tically give the provinces complete au tonomy. The matter will probably be re ferred to Washington. The Governors aleo unanimously con demn the road law, which requires " that work be done on the public' roads in lieu of taxes. All fear thar the law will be made oppressive, the same as the old Spanish law, and that it will be-, badly administered, being in the hnds of the municipal Presidentes. " The Provincial Governors advise 1 the appointment of A W. Ferguson as a member of the Phillippine Commission and refuse to suggest a Filipino lor the place.

Hindley Thinks Certain ' Spokane Man Is Unjustly Accused. Two Men Arrested on Sus picion Are Released. - ' ,4 SPOKANE, Wash.. Oct. 19. (Special.) fiev. W. J.. Hindley. who returned today from Portland, brought informa tion which ' would indicate that Reno Hutchinson ' had feared he would be murdered for six weeks before his tragic death.' This knowledge has led Mx. Hindley to abandon the theory that the Y. M. C. A. secretary was mur dered by hold-up men. who were wait ing: for a victim at Seventh avenue and Howard street. Mr. Hindley was in formed today that two different men bad been seen running in opposite di rections from the scene of the" mur der, just after its commission; also of the peculiar behavior of watch dogs in the vicinity of the crime, but said these circumstances would not cause him to deviate from hie belief that an enemy had assassinated Mr. Hutchin son. . . "Friends of Mr. Hutchinson are aware that his. nerves were shattered by some secret worry during the last six weeks," said Mr. Hindley. "I have learned In those week he lost more than 20 pounds in weight. When the coffin, was" opened in Portland his friends .would not believe that the body they saw was that of Mr. Hutch inson. An undertaker down there asked-': 'Why did they not fill out the cheeks with cotton when the corpse was. prepared for burial in Spokane?' I answered: The corpse you see looks as Mr. Hutchinson looked before his death.' The young man's friends were amazed. "These friends and I talked over the matter and they became convinced that he had been assassinated by an enemy. I 'am satisfied that the man suspected In Spokane is not guilty, and it has also been nroven to my satisfaction that a rejected Suitor for the hand of Mrs. Hutchinson did not commit the deed. "Mr. Hutchinson told me' but a short time ago that the Spokane man had been courteous to him and had wished him every success In his new work. As to the former suitor of Mrs. Hutchinson, who was -said to have made- threats against Mr. Hutchinson at one time, it is known that he was in a Western Oregon city on the day of the murder and spent that night in the city where he has "been living. "Although Mrs Hutchinson knew that some secret worry was annoying her hus band, he never confided to her the cause of his trouble. He may have received anonymous letters or secret threats, but kebt silence. His secret died with him. "But there is no doubt in my mind that Mr. Hutchinson was assassinated. While an enemy, if he had one, may not have committed the crime, there are men who could have been hired to commit it. From my experience, I believe there are men in this city who would commit such a deed for $1000. This may explain why a strange man searched so diligently for Mr. Hutch inson on the day he was murdered." Frank Dalton and Robert Harner, ar rested on suspicion of connection with the Hutchinson murder, were, released today. The automatic revolver theory was shat tered today. The bullet which killed Hutchinson was an ordinary revolver ball. H. W. Stone, of the Portland Y. M. C.A., arrived today.. Burial of Reno Hutchinson. Relatives and friends of the late Reno Hutchinson, secretary of the Spokane Y. M. C. A., who was murdered at that place Monday night, paid their last respects to the eafl yesterday forenoon. ' The body lay in state at the Flnley undertaking chapel from 9 until 9:30 o'clock, during which time scores of friends filed past the open casket. Interment took place at the Riverview cemetery, where brief ser vices were conducted-"by Dr. E. L. House. A long cortege followed the body to its resting place.
