I see tow ways to do it:

1. Change the settings for your default printer in the CUPS
   configuration web page. Make "aps" the default printer
   and add the desired options. Now "lpr" will default to
   that specific set of options.

2. Consult Evolution's documentation in regards of a config
   file that allows overriding the content of the printing
   dialog setting (such as xpdf can do). Good luck. :-)
