BELIEF IS SUBSTANTIATED 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.
