SALEM, Or. June 29. (Special.)
Initiative petitions began to pile into
the office of Secretary of State today
with numerous promises of other meas
ures to be filed early in the week.
The bill providing for a mlllage tax
for the University of Oregon and the
Oregon Agricultural College was filed
by W. K. Newell, of Gaston, with 13.010
signatures, or 2193 more signatures
than are required by the constitution.
The bill probably will have the 13th
place on the ballot, unless the two
referendum petitions of the University
of Oregon are eliminated, when it will
nave the 11th place.
The amendment providing for wo
man s suffrage will have the first loca
tion, and this will be followed by the
measures referred by the Legislature,
after which will come the referendum
measures referred by the people. Then
will come the bill to create Cascade
County and tben the mlllage tax bill.
The mlllage tax petitions were signed

Stranger, Representing Self as Gray
Reached Oakland Four Days Af
ter Ray Wallace Murder Com
mitted ': In Portland. -
ROSEBURG, Or.. June 29. (Special.)
After a fruitless search of the last
three days for the stranger who on
Wednesday abducted Ethel Metcalf
from her home at Oakland, Roseburg
officers are working on the theory
that he may be William Tanner, al
leged murderer of Ray Wallace in Port
land on June 19.
This theofy, the officers say, is partly
substantiated In the fact that the
stranger representing himself as
George Gray first arrived in Oakland
at midnight Sunday or four days after
the body of Wallace was found in a
Portland rooming-house.
The description of Gray and Tanner
are also said to tally with the ex
ception that the Portland officers as
sert to have no knowieage mat linnw
is minus two fingers of the right hand.
This link in the description has been
furnished the Sheriff, however, by
Southern Pacific Detective Kelly, of
San Francisco, who was here last night.
Kelly says he knows Tanner and that
two of his fingers are missing. Gray
has a tatoo on his left arm and other
wise resembles Tanner.
The officers here also assert mat
Tanner Is exactly the sort of a man
who would be engaged In the white
slave business. In fact, it has already
been established that Tanner first met
Hazel Erwin, his accomplice, on the
Barbary Coast at San i'rancisco ana
that he is well acquainted with the
questionable resorts of that city.

preclation. spoke briefly of the history
and objects of the lodge, ana its suc

W. E. Cummlngs. a member of Orient
Lodge, delivered an address on the
practical work of the order, laying
especial emphasis on the care given the
aged members and orphans In the many
Oddfellows' homes. Of these, there

states have several, Pennsylvania being
provided with five.

a petition signed by members of the
United States district grand Jury, with
Max O. Buren. of Ealem, as foreman.
Governor West is appealed to to take
some action . In enforcing the law
against selling liquor to Indians. Spe

"From the Investigations made by
the United States- grand jury since
June 17, 1312, in cases where Indiana
