PREP TEAMS DO GOOD WORK.
Making of Excellent Football Men
Found in Young Elevens.
Now that the football season is over it is
interesting to note the work of what are
commonly termed the "prep" schools In
Portland. Under this heading come the
Portland High School, the Portland Acad
emy and the Hill Military School.
This season has been remarkable for the
fact that It has developed so many "com
ers" among the "prep" men. The teams
of these three schools have all played
great ball, and in a few cases have put
up games which compared favorably with
those of the bigger men.
The Academy won the championship-,
but it was won solely through their bet
ter team work. Individually the High
school had much the better team on the
field, but they did not appear to get all
out of their team that was possible. The
Hill Military did not show up so favor
ably, but this might be owing to the fact
that they did not have the material at
their command. Nevertheless, they showed
up pluckily and always fought their
In picking an all-prep team out of these
schools the choice comes between the men
of the Academy and the High School.
For consistent work, both on the offen
sive and defensive. It would seem that the
following line-up would fully represent the
best of the prep, schools:
White L. E Academy
Cason L. T High School
PInkham L. G High School
Carlson C High School
Hurlburt R. G Academy
Von Etllngor..:...R. T Hill
Whittlesey R. E Academy
Reed. H Q Academy
Goodell L. H High School
Clark R. H Academy
Flavell F Academy
These men have been undoubtedly the
stars In their positions over all opponents,
with the exception of Carlson, center, who
finds a close second In Cook of the Acad
emy. Carlson's only claim to superiority
is that pf weight and being slightly more
While Goodell played fullback in the
High School team, in a picked team he
would show to better advantage as a half,
owing to his perfect offensive work; ho
has but few equals In carrying the ball.

The two savages, Antonio and Chomeg
ma. somewhat resemble Japanese. They
have also much in common with Mine
types of the American Indian. Antonio's
long, black hair Is beautifully wavy, and
he Is rather a handsome young fellow.
Both men wear queer little basket caps
stuck on the backs of their heads, much
as a British soldier wears his absurd little
"dice-box." Huge earrings of Philippine
gold and tattoo marks about their persons
add to their savage aspect.
Dr. Hunt returned to Seattle last night
with the Igorrotes. He was- accompanied
also by Frank X. Merrick, manager of the

CONTEST FOR STATE PRINTING
Rici Plum Is Much Sought After In
OLYMPIA, Wash., Dec 10. There are
Indications of a bitter fight between
the printers of Olympia and also of other
cities in the state, over the lcgislatlvo
printing contracts. In the absence of all
laws providing for the state printing the
Legislature now promises to be beset
by printers -anxious to do the work which
in the past has been highly profitable to
the legally constituted state printing of
fices. One Seattle firm has advanced the novel
proposition of leasing a portion of the
basement of the Capitol and Installing a
plant therein. If successful, this plan
would not only give the company an ad
vantage over all other printers by being
so close to the legislative halls, but It
would also beMn a position to sell out to
the state If the proposed law Is adopted
providing for the purchase of a plant and
the installing of It In the Capitol.
The Capitol Commission yesterday re
fused to act owing to the near accept
ance of the building, after which all mat
ters of that kind will be determined by
the Secretary of State. Pressure will now
be directed to the Secretary of State by
Tho proposed plan is meeting with de
termined opposition from other printers.
One Olypmla firm Is already threatening
injunction proceedings if any attempt Is
made to carry It out A Tacoma con
cern is demanding that other companies
be given an opportunity to Install plants
In the building If tho Seattle concern Is
given that liberty.
In addition to this controversy there Is
likely to be litigation over the old state
printing plant, owned by ex-State Prin
ter Gwin Hicks. Yesterday a lease of this
plant, which is the largest and best In
the city, "was recorded . In which Mr.
Hicks rents the plant to Al B. Howe, of
the Pioneer Company, of Tacoma, and
G. C. Corbaley, of the Inland Printing
Company, of Spokane. The consideration
is $1000 per month, with the option of
purchase at the end of three months for
$6000. George W. Hopp and A. L. Miller,
of this city, now have the plant under
lease and claim that their lease extends
until October, 1S03, and that they are pay
ing regularly In advance. They assert
that they will not surrender the plant
without a legal struggle
When It Is taken Into consideration that
under the old state printing law, whero
there was a State Printer who provided
a plant and performed all the work, that
four-year terms each made two State
Printers Independently wealthy, the ear
nestness of the present contest for the
printing is readily realized.
ANNEX TO BE ACCEPTED.
Capitol Commission Comes to. Agree
ment With Goss Company.
OLYMPIA, Wash., Dec 10. (Special.)
The new State Capitol annex will be
finally and formally accepted by the Capi
tol Commlmlon at a meeting to be held
on January 3. If present plans do not mis
carry. The Commission closed Its regular
monthly session today, after accepting the
electric lighting plant and the heating and
ventilating system, and deciding upon the
above action. The acceptance of the ven
tilating and heating plant Is contingent
upon a satisfactory test It was complet
ed only yeoterday, and the heat was
turned into the legislative halls today,
but a thorough test had not been made
prior to adjournment of the Commission.
The Commission gave the John R. Rog
ers memorial committee permission to
erect the monument to the late Governor
at ny point In Capitol Park that the
committee might select The monument,
which ie paid for by contributions from
the school children of the state. Is almost
completed. Workmen will begin next
week laying the foundation and erecting
the base. The position selected Is near
the center of the park.
The Commission paid the last of the
labor claims out of money due Contractor
Goss, leaving a balance of about $5000 to,
be paid him when the building Is accept
ed. Judgment has finally been entered In
the long-drawn-out eult brought by the
Goss Construction Company against the
State Capitol Commission, for extras in
the construction of the Capitol annex.
This Judgment which was signed today
by Judge Linn, of the Superior Court
gives the Goss Company $4933 and costs,
amounting in all to about $6000 that the
state will be required to pay. The suit
was originally for about $25,000, and in
volved a large list of alleged extras,
among which were the steel roof trusses,
extra steel In the hoofing, extra steel In
the expanded metal flooring, extra pilas
ters and caps, and alterations In the foun
The contractors, during the trial, which
occupied nearly 200 days, exclusive of con
tinuances, finally receded from some of
their contentions., making the total Judg
ment asked about $12,000. The court found
that the contractors were entitled to ex
tra compensation for certain steel In the
roofing, and the Judgment In dollars and
cents was agreed to between the contest
ing parties. Both sides have filed waivers
of Appeal, and warrants will be sold at
once by the Capitol Commission to pay
