clear and his manner calm. When ho

clerk, the.Bible which he had held in his
hand, and retiring behind the pillars
which form the back-ground to the jus­
tice seats, appeared at the doorway in
the middle of the bench. Tho justices
and the members of the bar had re­
mained standing throughout the cere­
mony and vuitil the appearance of the
chief justice in his official place. -As he
entered the doorway, Justice Miller
turned to the left and"grasping his hand
•said: "1 -welcome you as a member of
this court and as it's chief justice."
