SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES.
MONDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1914.
THE CHIEF JUSTICE said:
"It gives me pain to say that since the court adjourned at the end of the last term it has come to pass that the nation may no longer enjoy the fruitful and beneficent results to arise from the continued enlightened and devoted discharge by MR. JUSTICE LURTON of his public duties. He died at Atlantic City on the 12th day of July. In addition to the sorrow which they share with their countrymen at so great a loss, the members of the Court have suffered the pang caused by the severance of the close personal ties which bound them to MR. JUSTICE LURTON; ties the strength of which cannot be fully appreciated without understanding how completely his attainments and his lovable traits of personal character commanded the respect and drew to him the warm affection of those who had the privilege of being associated with him in the performance of his judicial duties."
THE CHIEF JUSTICE also said:
"In the month of August the HON. JAMES CLARK MCREYNOLDS was appointed an Associate Justice of this court, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of MR. JUSTICE LURTON, and on the 3d day of September the oath of office required by section 1756 of the Revised Statutes was administered to Mr. McReynolds by THE CHIEF JUSTICE. The new Justice is present to-day, and before he takes his seat the Clerk will read the commission and will administer to him the oath pointed out by section 257 of the Judicial Code; that is, the judicial oath."
The Clerk then read the commission, and Mr. McReynolds took the oath of office, and was escorted by the Marshal to his seat on the Bench.
