ADVASCKMK.it OF AN . OlIKUON
letter was received here Wednesday stating
that Mr Frank Wortmnu, a young man who
was born and raised at Oregon City, had
been appointed anatomist to the army medi
cal museum at Washington, a very responsi
ble position, which few men of his ago are
competent to fill. He received the appoint
ment upon the recommendation of some of
the most eminent scientists in America. Mr
vVortinan, after studying under the tutelage
of Professor Condon, went east about ten
years ago and studied under Professor Cope,
a celebrated naturalist of Philadelphia, and
accompanied- him for several years upon
scientific expeditions in various parts of the
world. For the last few years he has been
connected with the Philadelphia academy of
natural sciences, in the capacity of assistant
curator of the institution. He is the first
Oregon boy who has adopted tl)e profession
of naturalist. He is a son of Mr Jacob
Wortmuu of Junction, and brother of Mr
John Wortinaii. cashier of the bank of Mo
Minnville. The young man is well known
to old residents of Oregon City, and all will
be rejoiced to hear of his advancement, par
ticularly as it was brought nut aolely by his
brains and energy. Oregonian.
Akfibmki). In the case before the Supreme
Court wherein Louis Solomon was appellant
and J A Bushnell appellant, the decision of

the case we herewith publish the syllabus;
"A receipt given by a warehouse man, for
property placed in his possession for storage,
is uot, io a technical sense, like a bill of ex
change, a negotiable instrument, but merely
stands in the place of the property it repre

same effect in transferring the title to the
property as tho delivery of such property."
As will bo seen, the case has been decided
adversely to Mr Salomon,
At Corvaj.lis. Mr. Geo S Washbnrne
