The important qui-ftioi'i as to the lia
bility of a debtor vvh'J contracts for one
tiih'jr and receives something else lias
lu fii tl'-oxicj in a Liuvluii court. A Mr.
Lunprnjii, it seeme bewjuglit an artist in
repute ami high standing to paint a por
trait of Vsr. I.annO'i'9 wife :mi1
dainrliter. The artist went to work and
in due season presented a canvass show
ing his idea of how the wife and
daughter looked. Therewith he turned
in also a hi 1' for -5.U(.1. Mi. Lampoon
upon a ertt'ea! review of the picture
condemned it as un-Mtisf.u-i ory and e:n-
plint'ca-iv i-eiuseo; to iiiiiiMate. ll was!
not a jiotnl portrait he claimed. The ar
tist, maintained that it was a wort-- f art,
and Mr. Lampsou intimated that what
he wanted was not n work of art. hut a
portrait of a family gr .up. The case
was taken into couit, where one critic
said that the portrait was an accurate
likeness and vwo other critics said it was
not. Mr. Larupsoii, moreover, who is
presumably someth'nsr of a judge as to
his family's personal appearance, de
clared his views. The court, however,
lias returned a verdict compelling him to
pay the .,000. Mr Lampson does not
know whether to take this as a proof
that the portrait is rea'ly a likeness or
as a punishment for employing an artist
from the Royal academy. The case,
however, opens up an interesting specu
lation as to who is the best -judge of like
ness. The defendant in this case want
ed not the artists idea of how his wife
anil daughter lool.ed, but his own idea
of it. To one of them the originals of
the portrait looked thus; to the other
they looked so. Both observers may
have been 8'nce; e, and, in a way, both
right. In tiie circumstances the very
best thing Mr. Lampson can do is to buy
h kodak and make the pictures himself.

We incidentally learned that retuon

practicability of a portage railway from
Oelilo to this city. It is easy to see who
has the hidden hand. We understand
that one Norton has the scheme in
charge and will, when the- proper time
comes, present them to the legislature
through the medium of some trusty, for
the purpose of defeating legislation for a
state portage around the Celilo and
dalles obstructions. There has been
enough of thrt kind of -fool'shness, and
our people oi Eastern Oregon know it.
The portage road at the cascades has
saved for the producers of this and
Klickitat county, in Washington, not a
cent less than $175,000 since it was built.
Enough in reality to have paid for the
road three times over. If the state will
bnild the Celilo portage it wi'i pay for
itself in two years, we believe, by re
ducing freigh s and increasing the
wealth of the producer and stockmen.
As we said the oth-r day, the general
government will not buMd a ship rail
way, that is a foregone conclusion, and
tlie state must relieve the farmers oi
extortion on freights by giving them an
The Oregon state food commissioner,
has been having a great deal of trouble
with the milkmen at Portland recently
on account of watering miik. He has
now discovered a new method of making
butter. Rennet is used, and the butter
maker is enabled to get S7,Va' per cent of
butter, while by the ordinary method
but 1-3 per cent, can lie obtained. The
remiett being a very strong substance.
The butter made with it is of a good
quality, but under the state law cannot
be retailed unless it is labeled in the
same manner as .oleomargarine. State
chemist Shaw, in a letter to Mr. Baker,
Bays that there is a man at Eugene sell
ing the rights for emulsii'ying cream on
the Australian method, Mr. Shaw says
that the plan is to mix 50 pounds of
batter with 50 pounds of milk, and then
add the rennett, and 100 pounds of good
butter is the result.

The recent long-distance riders from
Berlin to Vienna merit the castigation
of some Annie Laurie. The event, after
the manner of other unworthy events
has parsed into history. The gallant
horses which participated are dead or
cripp'ed. The winning horse, it is re
lated, was sustained on copious draughts
of brandy. Alter an abstemious and
upright life he was inspired by the
demon rum to galioii to his own rnic.
