SHOP TEAM VICTIMS
OF MEXICAN TEAMWORK
DOUGLAS, Oct 30.?Being outclass
from the start In their game with the
Mexican-Bullion basketball team at
the Xatatorium last night, the Machine
Shops team were defeated by a score
of 41 to 19. Only once during the
game did the machinists show signs
of life and that was near the end of
the first half, when the miners were
: over ten points ahead. The shops
team at that time made four baskets
within three minutes but they evi
dently overexerted themselves as their
phenomenal spurt was not repeated.
; With the exception of that once the
Mexican team had the game In their
hands at all times.
The next game will be played on
] Tuesday and a large crowd Is expect
ed to be present. The piping for the
shower baths will probably be In by
the next game and the management
stated last last night that two stoves
wilt be placed In the hall immediately
for the comfort of the spectators. The
crowd last night was large considering
that a number of other entertainments
were also taking place in Douglas.
The score at the end of the first half
was 19 to 10 In favor of the Mexican,
and In the second half the Mexican
made 23 to the 9 made by the Shops,
i The lineups were:
Mexican. Position Shops.

PRAI8E FOR JUDGE
The appointment of Howard John
son Atwel.1, which will be made by
Judge Bunnell on October fifteenth, Is
a good one. Mr. Atwel! is a man well
suited for the position.-.which he will
assume, and we believe that his ac
ceptance of the position of commis
sioner in the Tolovanp, precinct will
be generally popular in the new difr
trlct as it is In Fairbanks.
A man of Mr. Atwell's calibre was
essential for the position, and Judge
Bunnell's selection is a good ono and
a popular one.? (Fairbanks News
