Oregon Theater . - '
A perfect example at modern
photoplay, comedy Is now showing
at the Oregon theater, where Par
amount's Tell It To Sweeney" is
be-'ng sereend. This jftlctura, a
comedy of railroad fife ! as it
shouldn't be, presents a new team
of farceurs, Chester "Conklin and
George Bancroft; who seem' to be
congenially cast as partners in the
business of manufacturing chuck
les. Cut-and-drled ideas are con
spicuously absent from "Tell It To
Sweeney.' The picture 'brings one
roar after another because of this
pair of comedians who are so long
experienced in the comedy field.
The story, the work of Percy
Heath. Monte Brlce and Klerxy
Clarke, - centers about a haughty
old engineer and his old. fash
ioned steed of the thundering
Us, both relics of a bygone era
and another engineer of the mod
ern day. Of, eourse, there is ro
mance, plenty of it. and this ro
mance serves to bring about a se
ries of spectacular thrills in whk-h
a runaway train plays th princi
pal part. Conklin has the role of
Luke Beamish,; the ou-of-date
throttle-pusher while Bancroft 1 ia

of the railroad's owner, meets

In love with her. Then the troubl
starts. Luke Beamish opposes the

of disdain at the ancient locomo

Cannonball tries to tully Luke,
who vanquishes him in an amus
