SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES.

MONDAY, JANUARY 4, 1915.

THE CHIEF JUSTICE said:

"Gentlemen of the bar: It is my painful duty to
announce that since we last met the Marshal of the court,
Major John Montgomery Wright, has died. This day
twenty-seven years ago he entered upon the performance
of his duties as Marshal of this court, and from that time
until a few hours ago, when he was called to his last
account, with that modesty, simplicity, and honorable
devotion to duty exhibited in so many instances by the
children of that great school out of which he came—the
Military Academy of West Point-he discharged the
responsibilities resting upon him as the Marshal of this
court. In war and in peace he exemplified in his life a
patient, simple, brave, single-minded, and devoted per-
formance of public duty. Therefore, as a token of the
affection we bore him and of the respect we had for him,
we shall do nothing to-day but hear motions to admit and
other motions and adjourn until to-morrow morning."

SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES.
