the school board overthrew It own plan

when the construction of tha Jefferson
of North Alblna High school u p-
' , '.They overthrew the . precedsnt - of
: 1S0S In the face of petition from
members Of the Architects' club, and In
, eplte of our Information that sui h a
.' proceeding was eontrarjr to the code of
the InHtltote of Architect! by-which we
, are all governed," aald David L. Wll
llama, who headed the petition. .
: "The assignment of -plane - for the
new achool ws made absolutely
to Whltehouse : A ' Foullhou wlth-

Lar&rus, ' senior . member, ... of . .the

Inasmuch as the plana for the new
High achool, which la to epst 1850.000,
will net the architect preparing them
' In the neighborhood of $17,000, the com
mlaalon waa considered very desirable.
. Mr. Williams, who circulated the petl
, lion referred to. said this morning, that
' he had not done so because he wished
to enter the competition, but because
aa a member of the Architects' club he
wanted all to get a square deal, which
It seemed by the plans adopted by tha
High school was not to be tha case. Mr.
Whltehouae was the principal architect
In the - construction of' the Jefferson
High sqhool, and for both big contracts
to go In their sequence to one man waa
. considered as excluding other architects
.who -were anxious to enter Into compe
tition for the work. ,
School Board In Error. .
. The ' school ": board . disregarded Its
printed program of competition when It
awarded the Jefferson High school to
Mr. Whltehmise." said Mr. Williams.
"This . was competitive, but. It was
eta tad that a Jury of outalde architects
was to pass upon the plans. This waa
not done. I do not know why, for it
has never been explained to me.
"When the taxpayers held their meet
ing some time ago we architects had
gone there prepared to submit resolu
tions Indorsing the continuance of the
competitive system, which we recog
nized as best for the building and best
' for -us, and absolutely eliminating any
possibility t "playing favorites,'. The
meeting was adjourned before we could
' submit the resolution.- I was told .aft
- erward by Influential members that - It
waa known to them that the resolutions
were coming up. I do not know where
they got the information. , ,
"Then we . put the thought of the
resolutions Into a. petition, which was
sighed by nearly all the architects In
the city. The school board paid abso
lutely no heed to this petition. A
letter which I had written after the
publication of the' competitive program
asKing the school board some ques
tions which I admit might have been
uncomfortable, was never heeded."
' Notice : of dissolution of partnership
was , formulated for .publication today
by Lazarus, Whltehouae ft Fouilhoux.
"We are dissolving partnership because
1 am getting out of the work-harness
for an Indefinite t period," said Mr.
X.ararus. ;'i plan to go abroad for an
Indefinite period. I am not severing
my connection with the firm because'
of any 111 feeling whatsoever. pur
agreement to dlsolve partnership 'was
reached on December. 31, 1908.

Mrs. Theresa Wood, Ms wife, made
the statement She . appeared before
Presiding Judge Morrdw In an endeavor
to get a 'divorce from the husband she
alleged to be dissolute, and to whom she
was married April 1. lSSs. Judge Mor
row probably will allow the decree. He
has the case under advlaement.
"When my - husband was dismissed
from the fire department three years
ago," testified the wife, "ha began
drinking heavily. Whenever he came
home be was too drunk to talk Intelli
gently. He talked full. Also he lived
with another woman for six months be

Mrs. Emma Stevens, a sister of Wood
was called as a witness. She testified
that her brother had been drinking
heavily. "He seemed always drunk,'
she said. "In three yeara I have not
seen him sober. He drank ao hard be
would wake, up drunk In the morning.
- The estate of Colonel T. Ai Wood was
Ued-up -In -the courts for the last two
years. About three weeks ago It was
settled." and -. after . that date Wood
deeded- one third of his Interest to his
wife, r ' ' - ' -:
"Was he too drunk to act Intelligent
ly When he algned the deeds?" Judge
Morrow asked John Logan, attorney for
the woman. '.
"I do not know whether i or not -he
waa," anawered the attorney.
"Well." said the court, "I'll allow Mrs.
Wood one third Interest In the prop
erty which, goes to her husband, and If
he ever cares to attack her rlgbt to the
land he will not only have to Set aside
the decree but break the deeds."
Property which goes to Mrs. Wood Is
situated in South Portland and Is valued
at about $10,000.
The Woods have three children
Charles, II years old: Walter, 19 yeara
old, and Margaret. 12 years old. Mrs.
Wood probably will be given the cus

pointed trustee of their share In the

' Protest on Site.
The Architectural club also protests
against the site chosen by the school
board lor the new structure. In a state
ment given to the public and the Clvle
Improvement league today. President
Joseph Jacobberger of the club says:
"At a recent meeting of the Portland
Architectural club, the erection of the
proposed new high school on the site ac
quired: py tne scnooi ooard last year
was discussed. A resolution, was adopt
ed asking your body to take steps to
prevent the erection of the building on
thia site. From the fact that this site
does not,, nor Is likely to fit in with
any scheme of clvle beauty; also for the
practical reason that It Is considerably
away from the center of the present
school population,' or the prospective
population, a more central site might be
selected. : . -.
If permissible to suggest the position
of this building It should be fitted In
with the scheme" of a future public li
brary and museum on the park block,
and which so far as being centrally lo
cated would certainly be an improve
ment on the present proposed site.
"It Is not often that .the oportunlty

that your body will take steps to effect

N. W.' Chapin, the pop corn Vender,
who waa this morning declared exempt
from the payment of the heavy license
fee required of tha usual street venders,
Is happy. His stand on Morrison street
between Fourth' and Fifth, Is becoming
familiar to pedestrians.
Three years ago, when the old shacks
on Fifth and Washington streets were
being torn down to make way for the
new Swetland building, Chapin fell
from one of the tipper floors of , the old
frame bulldlnj and his left leg waa ao
badly Injured that amputation was
necessary. When he came from the
hospital he was without an occupation,
for he could not follow his trade as
carpenter. The result waa that 'pros
pects were dark for a while.

Owing' to the absence of Councilman

versely, Secretary Meyer sent a letter
to the committee stating that the pro

Meyer suggested that Instead of first
promoting Peary to rear admiral and
then retiring him he be retired. as
