ashore Tuesday to stretch his legs by

Inquest Continued The coroner's
jury met yesterday to hear more tes
timony in the case of Blanche Day,
who is alleged to have committed sui
cide at the Waldorf dance hall. The
testimony showed that in company
with Roy Fox, for whom the police are
now searching, the deceased came to
Astoria, and after spending one night
at a hotel, registered as her consort's
wife, she entered the Waldorf. The
mother of the girl signed and for
warded from Seattle certain affidavits
declaring that the deceased was only
17 years of age, and that her sister,
Lucille, who is still at the Waldorf,
Is but 19, and these were presented to
the Jury. Luelle Day made an effort
to leave the city, but Sheriff Pome
roy heard of her intentions and Inter
cepted her. The jury adjourned to
meet at the call of the foreman.
