We discuss the vacuum energy density and the cosmological constant of dS$_5$ brane world with a dilaton field. It is shown that a stable AdS$_4$ brane can be constructed and gravity localization can be realized. An explicit relation between the dS bulk cosmological constant and the brane cosmological constant is obtained. The discrete mass spectrum of the massive scalar field in the AdS$_4$ brane is used to acquire the relationship between the brane cosmological constant and the vacuum energy
