An exclusive dispatch to the Los Angeles Times today states that Queen Ena of Spain, who is expecting a child shortly, "slept soundly last night and this morning walked in the gardens" at La Granja. Her condition remains unchanged, and her physicians expect her to give birth in the morning.
The Queen Mother, the Infantas and government officials are waiting Madrid for the word to come to La Granja. Spain's citizens are "waiting for the hoisting of the red or white lantern at the Ministry of the Interior, which will indicate the sex of the new-born baby."
