C-0 WAITE TRIAL PROCEEDS Tie trial of George C. Waite is proceeding iu federal courti today, all the jurors having' been secured yesterday evening. The committee appoitnti' to talc subscriptions lor the new building and loan association has been at work two days now and reports fine success. This committee is of. the Promotion Association and the work of the members of which A. M. Ardery, and not Mr. Colin as slated yesterday, is chairman, is in lino with the line work of the Promotion Association since it started. Carson City has never before had a more up-to-date and alive organiz ation than is this. The city is being improved with cement sidewalks, the work of the Promotion Association, backed by the city trustees. General improvement of homes and of vacant, blocks has taken place and there is an air of prosperity in Carson City that belies the derisive epithets thrown at it by other cities of the state who lack the beauties of the. capital city and try to make up for them by a dis play of hustie that makes line busi ness for everyone. The Promotion Association propos es to keep up the good work and to see that Carson City takes first rank in Nevada as a home city and a city of homes. New buildings have been projected and other improvements are to be made that, will soon make this one of the finest cities on the coast. From one end of Carson street to the other cement work is going on. This is a distance of nearly a mile and while' much of it is already pav ed there is much to be done yet and is being done. The Association tried to get a bill through the last, legislature to make improvements about .Te capitol building, but the bill died in com mittee of the whole and nothing came of it. The capitol therefore will stand without much improvement until the next session. The effect of al I these improve ments has been fine on business generally. 'Business men report good trade and the weather having ! settled, there is every prospect of a j good and prosperous summer season. Carson City is all right and the citi zens are not complaining of hard times, with all the work going on here and to come. There is yet about half a million of state money to he expended in this county during the next two years and the county will spend $ 40,000 on road building and internal improvements of a perman ent nature. There is nothing the matter with Carson City, nothing whatever. o-o MRS. BOURBON ON THE JOB l Spain is rejoicing at the birth of a daughter to Victoria, the queen, i Mrs. Bourbou now has three chihl ' ren. The first two are boys, one born .May 10, 1907, one June 2a, l'JOb and now comes the daughter born June 22, 1909. The advent of the little princess was attended by ail the ancient court ceremonial of Spain, the highest dig nitaries of the Kingdom present at the accouchement that they may be able to swear that the child is Ihe genuine daughter of the duly authen ticated queen, who hart previously taken an oath that the king is father and a lot of oilier tommy rot that would be offensive and insulting to a decent American woman. Spain has had so many little jolts handed it by the Bourbon family that she takes no chances anymore, seem ing to prefer an imbecile with a line of crazy ancestors on the throne to a child of good sense and half-known parentage in the seat of this ruler. The eoiiimwi people get just as hungry trying to pay the taxes to support one as the other. o-o SHORT ONES LADIES AID O MEET The Ladies Aid Society will meet at. half past two Thursday afternoon in li e lecture hall of the Presbyte rian Church.

Harriman is in the hands of a cou ple of Austriau doctors whose names are complicated enough to guarantee him good health for a hundred years.
