Enter Annul Big Eight
Louis Savadge of the senior class of
the high school was elected last night
at the preliminary contest to represent
Rock Island at the Big Eight oratori
cal meet to be held at Kewanee May
10. Five others were entered in the
prellminarj'. and all did such good
work that choosing the winner was no
easy task. Louis's oration was "La
bor and Law." Harold Peterson, who
was awarded second place, used as his
subject "Our Duty in China." Cecil
Koch's oration was "A Woman's
Search for the Holy Grail," Leland
Townsan's was "Our Policy in Alas
ka," John Hawes spoke on "The Mas
terpiece of Literature," and Donal
Vance closed the program with an ora
tion on "Conservation of the Laborer.
GRADING IS CLOSE.
The six orations were closely grad
ed as to their merit. They were first
criticized by three of the members of
the faculty, who looked over written
copies of them and marked them on
their general composition. This test
counted for two thirds In the final
marking. Three judges then listened
to the orations and graded the orators
according to the effectiveness of their
speeches. The combined markings gave
the contest to Ixuis Savadge.
SMALL, CROWD Ol'T.
The orations were delivered in the
assembly room at the high school.
The inclement weather prevented the
i gathering of more than a vey few audi
tors and the speakers had difficulty in
speaking to an empty house. Never

STATE'S DEEP WATERWAY
PLAN FOUGHT IN SENATE.
Washington, April 18. Members of
the senate committee on commerce ap
peared to be skeptical at the hearing
oil the lakes-to-the-gulf-deep-waterway j
proposition, not only as to whether
the state of Illinois will expend I
$l'0,(mmooii for the improvement of the j
waterways of the state in connection
wiih the deep waterway project, but
also as to the good faith of the sani-1
tary district in the matter. I
Senator Knute Nelson, chairman of j
the committee, suggested that the gov-1
! eminent should proceed carefully in j
I this matter or it might some day be
overwhelmed with claims from persons
whose lands lie along the river
itween I'tiea and the mouth of the can-
! al. which might be inundated consa
quent upon the increased flow of water
. caused by the removal of the trovern-

He expressed a fear that if the plans
which were advocated by Isham Ran
dolph were carried out it might be
necessary to build levees all the way
from I'tiea to the mouth of the river
to keep the water from overflowing
in flood times.
"It sems to me," he said, "that it
is more a question of helping out the
Chicago sanitary district than one of
The this suggestion Mr. Randolph re-
piled that he did not wish to create I
a false impression on the committee !
and that the sanitary district would
be benefited by the removal of the
dams, but that it was al3o true that
they are an obstruction to navigation.
"It is a trivial matter, asking the
government to appropriate $20,Ooo,0iO
to remove the dams and do the dredg
ing which we are asking for," said Mr.
Randolph. "The whole deep waterway
project from the lakes to the gulf will
only cost $159,000,000, and of this sum

Webster defines credit as ' belief, faith and trust." Gately defines credit the same
way belief in the honesty of their customers, faith in their integrity and consequently
they sell their merchandise on the trust plan.
And after all, why should not the individual, the consumer, enjoy the same commer
cial privilege that the merchant and store-keeper enjoys? Modern business methods de
mand that goods be sold to the merchant on credit, on time, ou
faith Gately's are willing to sell goods the same way.
We have sold Men's and Women's Clothing, Furniture, Etc.
on this plan ever since we entered business. We are the pio
neers in the field, the largest in our line. Other merchants sell
on credit to the most of their customers, they realize that the
modern trend of business is to extend credit. But few of them
have the facilities that Gately's have, few indeed are larger
buyers and stilr fewer sell exclusively on credit.
That is where we LEAD. We buy our goods in immense
quantities, on long time and with the plan of selling on payments
that are convenient to the customers of the store. We will sell
you any Suit, Dress, Coat or any piece of Furniture on payment::
of One Dollar Per Week. Just why should you pay cash
for the goods you buy? The man you buy from does not pay cash
for the goods when he buys them.
Then too, Gately's goods are all quality goods. The same
goods would cost you more, than we ask for them, at any cash
Our stock of Men's and Women's Clothing, Dress?s, Coats,
Suit, Etc is complete in every way. Having a resident buyer in
New York, shipments are received regularly direct from the best manufacturers of the country.
here all that is style, while the colors embrace the stylish greys, browns, serges, stripes, etc.
We want to call especial attention to our assortment of Men's Suits that range in price form $15 to $18.
Yrt m find here a suit that will fit you perfectly, no matter what your stature may be. You'll not have to
wait several weeks for the suit like you would for a tailored suit And you will not be obliged to pay cash.
These are the reasons why the suits are so popular and are selling so readily.
Decide what you want Suit, Dress, Coat, Furniture or' what come to Gately's, make your selection and
arrange to take the goods with you. Then pay us One Dollar Per Week until paid fcr.
