franchises to corporations in such city favored by the mayor and in which the mayor or his friends have been financially interested, a recent and flagrant example of which was the granting of franchises over twentysix miles of streets at a single sitting of council, under suspension of the rules, without notice to the people, and within one day after the passage of the so-called Schmidt bill, by the present general assembly; which bill, it was charged on the floor of the general assembly, was passed by the votes of members of this general assembly, some of whom are financially interested in the street railroad corporation so favored.

Third, That perpetual franchises of great value, among them one to a gas company owned by the Standard Oil Company, and one to a belt line railroad in which a coterie of local politicians are interested, have been granted without any compensation whatever to the city and without any adequate safeguard of the interests of the citizens.

Fourth, That large sums of public moneys have been unlawfully expended and that gross irregularities and misapplication of public funds exist in various offices in said city and county.

Fifth, That all political power in the city of Cleveland and county of Cuyaloga, has been and is now exercised, and all public affairs therein have been and now are dominated by one man, who now and for several years has controlled nominations to public offices, not excepting the nomination of judges; exacted from persons in public service a percentage of their salaries as political assessments; crowded the pay rolls with useless employes and it is rumored that in some instances he has even required and held the resignation of public officials as a condition of their appointment and as a means of controlling their official conduct; and

WHEREAS, It is charged that the bonded indebtedness of said city, during the administration of said man has been increased from about fourteen million dollars ($14,000,000) to about twenty-eight million dollars ($28,000,000), and

WHEREAS, It is of the first importance that the general assembly should be fully informed as to the extent of these and other abuses, that, with the fullest possible information in its possession, it may be able to so repeal and amend existing laws, and enact such new laws, that the people of Cleveland and Cuyahoga county, and other cities and counties, may be protected from like abuses and impositions in the future; therefore Be it resolved by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio:

That a select committee of three republicans on the part of the house of representatives and three democrats on the part of the senate, no member of which shall be a resident of the county of Cuyahoga or a member of any other investigating committee be appointed, with full power to investigate all and singular of the said matters and charges, and all matters and charges in any way pertaining thereto and with full power to prosecute its inquiry in every other direction in its judgment necessary and proper to enable it to obtain and report the facts in reference to said charges; and

Be it further resolved, That said committee, or a majority thereof, be and it is hereby authorized to employ one or more stenographers and one or more counsel and such other assistants as it may deem necessary for the proper conduct of the investigation herein directed; and shall have power to compel the production before it of any books and records, letters or documentary evidence of any character, which, in the judgment of the committee, or the majority thereof, pertains to any matters or thing under investigation and wherever found; and also to compel the

attendance of any witnesses. Said committee may hold its meetings at any place designated by it in the state of Ohio. Any member or members of the committee and its counsel and other assistants shall have access at all times during the life of the committee to all books, records, papers and other documents on file in the offices of the various departments of said city and county, and of any other city and county in the state, and said committee may compel the production before it of the books and records of any corporation, firm, partnership or individual that has now or has had in the past any contract with the city of Cleveland or county of Cuyahoga, or any department of either, as well as the books, papers, stock list and other records of any and every corporation exercising a public franchise, banking institution, or other business enterprise, in which it is known or may be ascertained that members of this general assembly or public officers of the city of Cleveland or county of Cuyahoga, are interested, either as counsel, officers, stockholders or otherwise. Said committee shall exercise and enjoy ail the power, privileges and authority of a legislative committee, with full power to enforce its directions and mandates, as provided for by the laws of Ohio governing such matters; and

Be it further resolved, That said committee make report of its proceedings to the present general assembly, or to any adjourned session, or, if this general assembly shall finally adjourn, then to the governor, to be by him transmitted to the succeeding general assembly, with such recommendation for further legislation and amendments to existing legislation as the disclosures of said committee may warrant, and said committee is hereby expressly authorized to continue its sessions after the adjournment of the present session of the general assembly and until the term of the members thereof has expired; and

Be it further resolved, That the expenses incurred by said committee be paid upon proper vouchers signed by the chairman of said committee.
