HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 1.

as

Be it resolved by the House, the Senate concurring, That the Legislature of the State of Washington meet in joint session in the House Chamber, at 12:50 o'clock, March 22nd, 1920, to receive the Governor's message.

On motion of Mr. Reed, the resolution was adopted.

On motion of Mr. Reed, the rules were suspended and the Chief Clerk was directed to immediately transmit the resolution to the Senate.

On motion of Mr. Thompson (H. W.), the following resolutions were ordered spread upon the journal of the House:

WHEREAS, In such regretable mob action was witnessed at Centralia last Armistice Day, November 11, when four of the state's former service men were fatal victims of murderous attacks by armed forces, the entire commonwealth is interested in seeing that justice be done, and

WHEREAS, It naturally follows that when organizations such as the I. W. W. figure in such outrages, prosecutions of such trials entail such heavy expenditures as to prove a burdensome item to any particular county to bear, and

WHEREAS, Most of the counties of this State of Washington find themselves confronting a serious problem should they be so unfortunate as to be faced by such crimes within their particular boundaries, and

WHEREAS, In the interests of justice to the various counties, and to insure prosecutions being unrelentlessly had in such cases where the state is fighting an element of “Reds" which has for its object the destruction of our fundamental principles, therefore be it

Resolved, That in all prosecutions where the alleged guilty parties are members of organizations which have been declared radical in their principles, these prosecutions will be conducted under the direction of the Attorney General of the State of Washington, which official will be empowered to engage such additional counsel as he may deem necessary, and the entire expense of such prosecution to be borne by the state, thus relieving individual counties of heavy financial burdens and placing such expense to be borne by the state commonwealth.

WHEREAS, Two of the alleged participants in the Armistice Day murders at Centralia, Wash., on November 11 last are still at large, and

WHEREAS, It is quite possible that a substantial reward being offered might spur activities and lead to the apprehension of these two men, guilty of shooting down former service men who had proven themselves worthy of our honest admiration through the valiant response to our country's call, therefore be it

Resolved, That we, members of the Washington State Legislature in special session assembled, do call upon our Governor to immediately offer a reward of $2,500.00 for the arrest of either of the alleged guilty parties, known as John Doe and John Doe, or for the arrest of both John Doe and John Doe that this reward be increased to $5,000.00, and that a special appropriation of $5,000.00 be set aside for this purpose.

Mr. Hull announced that the committee appointed to inform the Governor that the House was in session and ready to transact business had performed that duty and that the Governor was ready to deliver his message to the Legislature. MESSAGE FROM THE SENATE.
