Montreal. Oct. 10.— No radical chance in
tho policy of the Liberal govcninient of
Canada in regard to reciprocity with the
t"nf..-.l States or the tariff question was in
otcaJed in the address delivcrcti here to

Premirr. Sir Wilfrid has Just completed ■
« amj>aUcn covering several weeks, during
which time ho spoke at all the important

ro»i««. In th« West many r^rtitions were
laid bet ore him urging tlt<»" adoption of a
recipi»>c*ty Hgre«nent with the United
t?tat»M, and it was expected he would speak
at l»-n£J.li en the subjoct to-night.
Tin- Premier, who did not begin his
.-pwh until after 10 o'clock, spoke In
Frcncr-i for over two hours, and during that
timo, «!id not mention reciprocity, e*cept
when he charged the Conservative party
with jrracliiiiK that doctrine In the Cana
dian AVcft and against it in Ontario and
Quebec. The speaker attacked Henri LJou
lassa, « formtij- supporter and now leader
of the Nationalist movement in the Prov
ince, of Quflxx: and a spirited defence of
the go t*"ram-nfs naval policy, which has
been at tacked by the Nationalists.
•The Britislj jingoes have accus"<l me

of discussing reciprocity with the United

the court adjourned until to-morrow out of
respect to the memory of the Chief Justice.
The session lasted eight minutes-

the court without a permanent head, while
the passing away of Justice. Brewer and
the illness of Justice Moody, whose resig
nation will become effective on November
30. reduced the active membership tr» six.
One noticeable result was th<> change of
the seating arrangements of the justice?.
Arrangements wore made for Justice Har
lan, the senior member of the court, to
move from the place of honor he had oc
cupied for years at the right of Chief Jus
tice Fuller to the chair of the Chief Jus
tice himself, in recognition of his being
temporarily the presiding justice of the
court. The scats for the other members
wcro changed ?o that Justice White was
assigned to th* seat to the right of the
presiding justice and Justice McK^nna to
the left.
Still further to rhr right had been re
moved th* ehaar occupied by Justice
Holmes, while on the other side ere the
chairs for Justices Day and Lurton. Next
to Justice Holmes was the vacant chair of
Justice Moody, and on -the extreme right
was the Feat aligned to Justice Hughes.
This arrangement will be. effective until a
new chief Justice is appointed.
Attorney General Wickersbam and Sec
retary Xagel represented the Cabins! at to
day's ceremonies.
Mr. Hughes followed Justice? Harlan,
White. McKenna. Holmes, Day and Lur
ton as they entered the courtroom in pro
cession. Behind the New York Governor
Fame Justice Brown, now retired, but for
merly a member of the Supreme Court.
Presiding Justice Harlan announced, as
food as the court had taken its place, that
the ciaHnnl had appointed Mr. Hughes
to the bench, that the Senate had confirmed
the nomination and that Mr. Hugh?? was
present. He directed Clerk McKenney. by
whom Mr. Hughes was Beaton^ to read the
latter's commission.
"The court extends « cordial welcome."
saM Justice Harlan, as the clerk finished
He then directed the new member to take
the oath of office, the oath of allegiancft
having already been administered in the
robing room a few minutes before. Mr.
Hughes read the oath in impressive, man
ner, and at Its conclusion repeated after
the clerk the words "So help me God," and
Marshal "Wright escorted the new member
to his seat.
These formalities over. Justice Harlar*

Into a Suit That Belongs There
Into a suit that belongs on Fifth avenue, or wherever correctly
attired business and professional men are to be seen.
These clothes possess those distinctive traits of style which
habit a man in quiet, impressive appearance which represents about
ninety per cent, of the success-total in modern business computation.
They are cheap clothes in no sense of the word, though the top
price for young men is $35 and for older men $48. They could not
be cheap clothes and be fashioned so correctly and carefully, of
fabrics approved for tone and guaranteed against a thread of cotton.
The clothing sold in the Wanamaker Men's Store comes to
you as the result of well-nigh half I century of clothes-making and
selling Fifty years of reputation that could be dissipated in fifty
days were the standards to be relaxed. Is our unceasing vigilance
to be wondered at?
We invite the well-dressed men of New York to call and inspect
these hand-tailored suits. The more captious, the more welcome.
Glad to show the overcoats, too. Black, Oxfords, fancy wor
steds, cassimeres, cheviots, etc., $16.50 to $35. English top-coats,
more and more popular. $30 and $35.
