19th day of the same mouth, who, during
his retirement had maintained his compan
ionship with the members or the bench
he had adorned.
"It has been the immemorial usage Jor"
the court on the rirst day or the term, on the
first day on which a quorum appeared,
to proceed In the transaction of no business,
but to adjourn to await upon the President
of the Uidted States.
"The President Is absent, and we shall

to dls-mse ot such matters as may be prop
erly brought before us. All motions not
