We believe that one of these WILSON BROUOHBK PAS3S3 Yfn 1LSON BROUOIIER was one of the few millionaires whose fcjjfcfrl money did not poiI him. An one of the upbuilders of the state he was equal to any and in his passing Carson City has lost one of her biggest .assets. Wilson Hroughcr's acta of chatty were as unlimited as they were unknown. He was a man clear through and hut death leaves the world poorer, indeed. IS SACRAMENTO FALLING DOWN UK disinclination of Sacramento through her chamber of com L .merce to open the eastern tide of .the Sierra road from this city will have the effect of decreasing the number of people who would visit the "Days of '40" celebration in the California city dur ing the latter part of this month. The Sacramentans promised that .they would be at work on their end of the Carson-Sacra mento road several weeks ago.. So far thev have given little more than promises.. . With -tourist already reaching eastern Nevada cities and Ne vadans planning their vacations, Sacramento is losing her attractive ness because the highway is not open. There are other conventions and celebrations planned for the West this year, the California capital city should realize, and the "Days of '49" will be put an opener. The following are a few of the conventions whose delegates will pass through Sacramento and Carson: Pacific Coast Ad Clubs, San Diego, June; National Association Real Estate Boards, San Francisco, June; Disabled "American War Veterans, San Francisco, June 26-fM); International Association Chiefs of Police, San Francisco, June 19-24; Delta Sigma Delta Fraternity Los Angeles, July; American Osteopathic Association, Los Angeles, July 3-10; National Dental Association, Los Angeles, July J7-24 American Bar Association, San Francisco, August ; Knights of Py thias, Supreme Lodge, San Francisco, August 8; Private Soldiers and Sailors' Legion of U- S. A-, Oakland, September; National En eampment, Spanish War Veterans, Los Angeles, September. This city has done her share in opening the road from Carson to Bijou and the promise of Sacramento to do a share is not forgotten OPPORTUNITIES IN NEVADA H. M. PAYNE, Chairman Publicity Committee (time comes. One thing we have found and the entire evening was given over to entertainment. Col. C. H. Moore, vast commander of the post, gave a talk on his recent trip through California. djuiant M alone gave a very interest- tig talk to the guests of the evening. .very good time was enjoyed by all. W.naemucca Members of Vernon Robins Post are preparing for the observance of Me morial Day and a committee - has al ready been named to arrange all de rails. Services will be held at the Nix entertainments is to be in the form of a grand carnival to be held at Armory hall on June 2. Same is to be one oi the biggest events of the year. , ihe convention entertainment com mittee, consisting of Blake, Allen "and Payne have also had a number of meet ings. Its task is not so hard right now as it is much easier to plan to spend the money than to raise it. Suf fice it to say that this committee has spent (on paper) at least some of the money that the finance committee has to raise. Rut look at the advertisement JTi opera house and the exercises will J Carson City and its people are getting! Best kind of commun'ty advertising when delegates, both men and women, from over the entire state, spend a few uas in attendance at the convention, are royally entertained, by the people of Carson lots of entertainment and everything free and they return to their homes with a warm feeling for the beautiful green spot at the base of the Sierras, the ."gateway to Lake Ta hoe." with its eenial copulation of en ! tertaining; hosp'table, pleasure-loving people. The committee is planning to show the delegates a "time" that will even e concluded at tne cemeteries, ine school children are to lend their as sistance in the observance of this day. Ely " Ely Post has made up !ts mind to have a memorial building and from the way things look the building is going to materialize much quicker than could at first be anticipated. They put on a minstrel show, and from all reports. it was more than successful. Word comes from Fallon that Miss Inez Laveaga has d'ed. The young lady has been in ill health for some r-.irr.ass the entertain. i.c;t afforded at t:me. .Her brother, J. B. Laveaga, for- J Lake Tahoe last year (and that is goin tner Legion adjutant, has been a very active worker and the Legionnaires of this city wish to express to him and his family their sympathy in his loss. t t ( A. G. Meyers CARSON CITY, NEVADA GROCERIES HARDWARE CROCKERY Prices Are Right Quality Highest fT EVADA w one of the few states left, that offers immense op IJTl portunities to the man with limited capital, and it only re mains for this fact to be broadcasted in order to bring thousands o new families here to make theirjhome- It is thoroughly feasible through the proper methods and agencies to double Nevada's popu lation before .the next census is, taken. . It is up to the various or-; ganization throughout the state to make this an actuality. It is com pletely practicable and now is the time to begin the great work. There is no better agency than -the .commercial clubs or chambers of commerce in the different counties, the Ely "Times says. They are sufficient in number to form a strong .nucleus on which to build a more comprehensive organization. Tbeir work could be coordinated in such a way that the results would be great and the effect of the work noticeable almost from the beginning. Data should be compiled, giving. accurately and clearly informa tion .that would be of value to , prospective settlers disclosing the wonderful agricultural possibilities. , Nevada has thousands of acres of fertile land that are waiting for enterprising settlers to reclaim. In many of the valleys there is abundance of water from 25 to 30 feet beneath the surface that can be pumped on the ground at a com paratively low cost. Cheap power is the one essential factor to re claim a vast acreage in Nevada. This is the day and age of electricity, which is synonymous with cheap power. With the great Colorado river project once under way a , new gateway will be thrown open to the development of the natural resources of southern and eastern Nevada, and these sections of the state will take on an air of pros perity that will confirm the predictions of those who have had the eapaoity to visualize it will be the .realization of the hopes and as pirations of some of the prominent engineers of Nevada, one of whom is State Engineer J. O. Scmgham. ? Col. Scrugharaa's activities in rep resenting Nevada in the several conferences that have been held with other interested states with a view, to making an equitable distribu tion of the waters of the Colorado river are worthy, of the highest praise. He lias manifested a knowledge of engineering that has placed him high in the ranks with the best engineers of the country. It is evident that the views of Herbert, Hoover and those of J. O. Scrugham coincide on the vital and fundamental issues effecting the Colorado project. Nevada is depending on Mr. Scrugham and the people have every confidence in his ability to bring the matter to a successful conclusion. Nevada is indeed fortunate in having a man of Scrugham 'a calibre on the Colorado River Commission. DEPARTMENT NEWS In all probab lity the date of the 1922 convention will le known some time this week. At the meeting of the state ocecutive committee on April 30, the natter of a date was referred to a vote of each member by letter, .this action 'etng due .to the fact that two members f the committee were absent when the matter came lip for discussron. L'p to j the present time Adjutant BcU'nger has j tot received all of the votes, but a re-' iort is expected early this week. CAPITOL POST Fellows! Don't forget the special meeting, Thursday . night.
