Great Removal Sale
DEC. 15thTOFEB.1st, 1916
every it was our intention
to ou stock of hardware to the
Dr. Johnson block on Third street, when that
building was vacated, but we find that we
cannot do so until the first part of February,
igi6, when the weather gets real cold and
miserable for that kind of work. Now for the
sake of avoiding too much moving of goods
from one place to another, we will take this
means of disposing of all we can at cost.
Anything and everything in our store will be
sold at actual cost nothing reserved, so what
ever you ask for you will get it at cost, because
we know it is easier to move our bank book
than it is to move heavy hardware, and when
we get settled in our new location we can get
all the goods we are able to pay for. Now
remember, this is no fake sale, but that you
will get anything in our line at wholesale prices

LOCAL TEAMS WIN
Five of the Six Judges Decide
For Willmar In Debates
Following the brilliant victories of
the local high school debaters over
Montevideo, Tuesday evening, there
is a possibility that the championship
banner of the Seventh District will
rest at the high school in this city,
next year. For the past two years' the
Montevideo team has held the cham
pionship of the district, so the vic
tories are all the more welcome. The
victory of the girls, defending the
negative at Montevideo was not entire
ly unexpected, as the negative teams
have been winning with great reg
ularity thruout the state. However,
the great showing made by the affirm
ative in the contest here, was even
more than most ardent supporters
hoped for. The decision here was un
animous, and at Monte two to one, giv
ing Willmar the decisions of five of
the six judges.
The work of the debaters here Tues
day evening was worthy of a much
larger crowd than was in attendance,
and it is to be hoped more will attend
these contests in the future.
Joe Chase, Frances Hedin and
George Scotten made up the local
team Montevideo was represented by
Joseph Stennes, Gladys Biegert and
Esther Storaker. The question for
discussion was, "Resolved, That the
United States Government Should Ma
terially Increase Their Army and
Navy Armament" Joe Chase opened
for the affirmative, outlining the plan
to be followed by his team, and stat
ing the points to be proved—(a) Strife
and Jealousy have always existed be
tween nations, and would continue to
do so (b) the United State® is un
prepared for a sudden invasion by a
foreign country (c) the cost of un
preparedness is greater than that of
preparedness and (d) we must adopt
a foreign policy which will prove to
foreign countries we are able to de
He continued, proving the first
points of the argument, and then the
affirmative was taken up by Frances
Hedin, who advanced sufficient argu
ments to make the third point, that
of the great cost, appear reasonable.
George Scotton concluded the con
structive argument for the affirma
tive by proving the last point, and
with a general summary.
The main argument of the affirma
tive was not for war, but that this
country should be prepared in ease
they are attacked that when all other
means of bringing about peace fail,
force some times must be used. Some
of the points brought out were the
claim that a greater spread of Chris
tianity can prevent war, is not feas
ible, as if 20 centuries were not
enough, surely the next quarter cen
tury would not bring it about the ar
gument is for a defense for peace, not
for war if we are strong, and known
to be able to hold our own, foreign
countries will not attack United
States our army is little more than
twice the size of police force of New
York City if it were not for the trou
ble in Europe congress would go ahead
and increase the armaments, according
to the growth of the nation, as was
done years ago our great enemy will
be the winner of the present European
war those favoring preparedness
don't desire a huge appropriation,
merely enough to provide adequate de
fenses we need a firm and definite
policy we have a lack of organization
lack of efficiency need support for
national guard banish obsolete navy
and army posts and a different attitude
of congress and the people toward for
Points brought out favoring the
negative were—Our navy is sufficient
and the efficiency should be increased
would' be impossible anyway to keep
enemies from landing, so great is
coast line of country preparation
costs more than the carrying on of
war industrial development needed
more than anything else preparation
depends on economic conditions: U.
S. better off in regard to economic
conditions than any other country
Germany is not a self supporting na
tion, lack metal for firearms if peace
would follow preparedness, then En
rope would be the most peaceful of
continents Canada and 17. S. have
been very friendly for a hundred
years, would such be the case if we
began preparing for war? How can
U. S. ask other countries to stop fight
ing, while we are preparing for war
In the constructive arguments and
delivery, there was little to choose be
tween either team, or individuals.
However it was the good work of the
Willmar team in rebuttal, which brot
the decision to them.
The judges were Rev. Crawford
Grays of Litchfield, Atty. C. Kane
of Benson and1 Miss Meeghan of Gran
ite Falls high school.
Atty. R. W. Stanford presided.
The members of the victorious neg
ative team were Norine Hawkland,
Evelyn Anderson and Geraldine Haley.
Too much credit for the fine show
ing of the local teams cannot be giv
en to Miss Lange, who has worked
early and late, coaching the debaters.

Chita Offers Best Oittet for
America Trade and
Willmar has had a visit from two
gentlemen from the Orient during the
past week. Hon. James A. Ostrand, a
judge of the Court of First Instance,
of the City of Manila, and Mr. P. M.
Ostrand, of Ichang, China, a civil en
gineer in the employ of the Chinese
Government Railway, have been here
visiting with their mother in this city,
Mrs. Carl O. Peterson.
The Tribune acknowledges a pleas
ant call from Judge Ostrand. The
court over which he presides at Man
ila corresponds about to the District
Court in this country. There are four
judges in the Courts of First Instance
in the City of Manila. Judge Ostrand
thinks more people from this country
should make the tour to the Orient.
The steamship companies make rea
sonable rates for the round trip. De
cember and January are absolutely
ideal in climatic conditions. China is
at present in its most interesting stage
of development. There is no difficulty
in finding Chinese who can speak Eng
lish, and they are very friendly to
Americans. In Judge Ostrand's opin
ion China opens the most promising
field for American trade, much more
so than South America. Unlike the
South Americans the Chinese prefer
and are anxious to trade with the peo
ple of the United States. P. M. Os
trand) has lately been working in the
far interior of China near the boun
dary of Thibet The possibilities for
railroad development in the Chinese
Empire are boundless.
Jrdge Ostrand spoke of meeting
C. A. Rice before leaving Man
ila. There are many Minnesotans in
the Philippines. Mr. Elmer Eckman,
a nephew of Lewis Eckman of New
London, is the governor of the moun
tain province of Luzon. The gover
nor of a province i« the principal ex
ecutive officer, but his duties differ
from that of any official in this coun
try. Gov. Eckman's territory includes
the aboriginal Igorotes, a head-hunt
ing tribe. The savage customs are
supposed to be discontinued now, but
occasionally a head may be taken
even yet This condition, of coarse,
is true only of the savage tribes of
Judge Ostrand left Tuesday for Min
neapolis to join-his wife-ana children
who have been in this country since
the last visit of the Judge two yean
ago. They will return to their Man
ila home with Judge Ostrand.
We are now located in our new quarters, the Stansberry building,
