Cornerstone Will Be Laid Monday .Afternoon Construction work on the new court house has reached the point where the cornerstone may be laid. Though no ceremonies will be held, Contractor Scllman will drop the stone into place next Monday afternoon. Those who de sire to deposit mementoes should see Foreman McKenzie. It has been sug gested that one each of every piece of coin and currency ever issued by Uncle Sam be placed in the copper box, and any citizen looking for fame has an op portunity to distinguish himself. Work has been progressing slowly owing to the lack of larger pieces of stone for window openings, but with the installation of the stone-cutting saw at the prison the needed material will be available. If no further delays occur both th'j court house and memorial building will be enclosed before winter. The cornerstone will cost Contractor Sellrnan about $150 more than the spec ifications calls for, and, though the time is short, sufficient interesting docu ments can be gathered to make the cop per box an historical depository. t Carson City Needs Wa Republican senatorial oligarchy aims to turn the senate and presidency into a single unit of government.

Sugges tions regarding the most pressing and immediate needs of the com munity were asked for by the chairman, W. P. Harrington, presi dent of the Greater Carson club, who, at the request of the club's board of directors, had called the meeting. The suggestions made and the opinions voiced by representa tives of the town's chief interests were significant. The Appeal will print one of them daily, and will be glad, in connection there with, to print also further suggestions and opinions from any of its readers. There are things to be done in Carson which can be done only when an enlightened public opinion brings them into prominence, and an energetic spirit of co-operation gives them the backing with out which nothing can be accomplished.

Tia Juana May Soon Be Wiped Out as an 'Oasis' "The Reckoning Day" Carson City at the Theater Tonight f " wl REV. H. H. M'CREERY: I think the kenynote is struck if one says that Carson City has been suffer ing from the sleeping-sickness of sel fishness, and is just beginning to wake up. If we eliminate selfishness half the battle is won. And toward this end I will mention first what may seem a very small thing, but one which, if remedied, may mark the beginning of greater things : From the beginning of the school year to its end there is an untidy trail of waste papers leading, with the schoolhouse as a center, for ten blocks in every direction. I should suggest that our citizens join the teachers in in spiring the children who scatter papers with a gathering-up spirit instead. And ' I should suggest that this be done not jby punishing, but by directing them. I taught school once for ten years my self, and it is my experience that child ren who are leaders in destructiveness can be leaders in anything they are born leaders, that's all, and they need only the w ise direction of their elders to become prime movers in usefulness as they were leaders in mischief before. To make Carson the City Beautiful that Mr. Collins suggested we must be gin with the young ones, who will be the citizens of the city of the future For the City Beautiful, too, there must be a welcome extended to strang ers. And this reminds me of a num ber of towns through which I recently passed on a trip in California. There seems to be invariably a big sign at the entrance saying, "Welcome to Our City" ; and the sign is always an introduction to a series of bumps and holes in the road which lasts till one is out of town again. j I hope the new Carson will extend more of a welcome to strangers than can be written on a sign and part of the welcome should be the sort of streets that won t destroy any automo bile that tries to run on them. Charleston's Clean-up Week was conspicuous for the work that was done by the children. Circulars distributed among them contained forms on which their parents could pledge themselves to clean up their premises, and the children themselves were interested by means of talks in the schools, educa tional moving pictures, and mention of the work in Sunday schools and from the pulpit.

Passage of this famous gambling and racing center, long the mecca of American sportsmen and tourists, loom ed today as the outcome of peace nego tiations between the Mexican federal government and Governor Kstahan Cantu, Lower California chief execu tive through several Mexican revolu tions. Along with Mexicali, across the bol der from Calexico, Tia Juana, only sev enteen miles from San Diego, has grown in importance as the center of racing, drinking and gambling, until it has become internationally famous. Now the prosperous American con cessionaires are facing the problem of disposing of property worth millions of dollars in the way ot liquor stocks, gambling halls and other sideshows of the sporting world. Under the rulership of Governor Can- j Mi, both the state government and con- I sessionaries have enjoyed tremendous j profits, particularly after January 16. j 1920. Now Governor Cantu is faced with political extinction, while owners of large liquor stocks fear their prop erty will be confiscated by the Mexican federal government. Americans here point out that the virtually independent rule of the prov ince by Governor Cantu, under which drinking and vice resorts flourished. de facto government, following the flight of President Carranza, placed rigid restrictions on resorts along the Texas and Arizona border. Cantu, however, refused to follow central gov ernment orders to close Tia Juana and Mexicali. Thousands of tourists have annually visited here, some of them avowedly on "slumming parties," others to escape the great American drougth. During the "hundred days" of racing here last winter, sportsmen from all parts of the country, including all classes of fol lowers of the turf sport, made this their headquarters. Mexicali has enjoyed similar "wide open" conditions. The "Owl," famous gambling resort of that city, is known to gamblers as one of the most unre stricted houses in the world. Now, however, that the rule of the federal government appears to be about to extend over this territory, old timers are sadly shaking their heads and mur muring, "it is bound to come." "Passing of another oasis" seems a fitting characterization of the latest change in Lower California. Under Regulations fT I'nitrd Trfl MEXICALI, Lower California, Aug. 21.
