Ellensburg, Wash., Nov. 22.—Tom Carney, known throughout this part ;of the country as the "king of the ! section" was found dead yesterday [ta the Palace saloon. Coroner Steele j pronounced a case of acute alco- I holism. Carney is said to have work ed on nearly every section crew in the Yakima valley, and had a repu tation in everytown as a heavy drinker. , The moving pictures last night at the Wenatchee theater were high j class in every respect and deserved ia larger patronage. Undoubtedly the 'inclement weather was res\i nsilA* ' for the light attendance. The ma chinery moved smoothly under the di rection of Louis Micheal, and the i songs from the phonograph enlivened ! the waits between changing films. Although the poetical "Louis" hails from Baltimore he never sings "Oh, I'm going back, back to Baltimore," for his moving picture shows are making a hit, and as soon as the crowds get the habit as they have in Seattle the performances will be wit nessed by bunches every time they are presented. Tonight the moving pictures will depict "The Runaway Automobile," -whfch is a cure for panics and the blues any old time, and other meri torious scenes will be "The Stag Hunt," and the "Frolics of the Ding Ding Imps." Illustrated songs, "Keep a Cosy Corner in Your Heart for Me" and '"After They Gather the Hay," will be presented, and also William Lynn, a singing prodigy, discovered by Mi chel. What has become of the lady bal ladist who sang at the opening per formances? She was a good "Looy," and ought to be retained with the big show. Tonight at the Wenatchee theater.
