Matinee Idol Of

WARREN KERRIGAN.
Warren Kerrigan is appearing
today in Tacoma moving picture
Imii-i's. He is as great a favorite
with patrons of the "movies" as
are the actors who iip|x»nr in tlie
"legitimate" show houses, and
much more widely and intimately
known.
Kerrigan is a matinee idol of
the moving picture world.
"And it's him that knows it."
How can he help it when every
mail brings new protestations or
the undying admiration of the
young and the old.
He plays the hero roles In the '
western studio of the American
Film Co. at Santa Barbara, Cali
fornia. •
Although Mb dreamy eyes deny
it—Kerrigan is NOT a girl en
thusiast.
Far be it from such—but still
he cannot gainsay that it's mighty
hard for his Southern sense of
gallantry not to answer every
flattering missive he receives,
with a bouquet of American beau-
ties or a pound box of sweets.
Kerrigan used to be known as
the "Gibson man." Before ne
joined the "movies" he played the
leads for two seasons in "Brown
of Harvard." Of course, you re
member him in "The Best Man
Wins," "The New Cowpuncher"
and "The Promise."

Now the city is being bumped

The city charter expressly re
serves to the city the exclusive
right to sell electric light in the
city, yet Commissioner Irfiwson
has been allowing the Stone-
Webster company to go ahead
supplying the Northern Pacific
and some other private users
without a -word, but Commission
er Mills says the thing ought to
stop.
Mills got to reading the old T.
R. & P. power franchise. He dis
covered a little clause there which
said the city might give the com
pany permit to sell light to cer
tain users, the permit to be re
voked any time the city desired.
Me wondered whether there were
any such permits out, and he ask
ed this morning.
Then it came out that the
whole Northern Pacific light bill
was going to the Stone-Webster
people instead of the city. It
also wbs intimated tjiat. . others
were getting light from private
parties instead of the city.
Mills made a motion that Law
son at once bring in a re
port showing all light being
furnished by any plant other than
the city plant, and that all per
mits be then revoked.
So the council ordered Lawson
to get busy and bring in the re

The City's Plans.
In planning to protect city em

pommissloners have drafted an
ordinance which provides that any
person on the municipal pay-roll
who shall borrow money on an
assignment of wages shall be dis
missed from the city's employ.
While this ordinance seems to
aim a blow at the employe rather
than at the loan shark, the re-

One of the local banks offered
