tion is beyond the the power
of the courts. The plaintiffs
have no power to call the Leg
islature together, and they- may be
unable to satisfy the Governor that
their wrongs, great as they are, are
sufficient to tax the public with the
expei sive precedent of re-summoning
the Legislature whenever the
fraud of a lobbyist is discovered.
There is an easy, a cheap and speedy
remedy by setting aside the signa
tures, as fraudulent, upon the testi
mony of the speakers to that effect
and the verdict of a jury. Upon the
vi rdict of a jury every man is dei
pendent for the protection of his
property, his reputation, his liberty
and his life. Surely it is a compe
tent tribunal to decide whether the
signatures to a piece cf paper were
knowingly and intentionally affixed
by the Speakers with the assent of
their respectWe houses, or whether
the bill had been defeated on its at
tempted passage and notwithstand
ing such defeat the signatures and
certificate of the Speakers had been
thereafter procured by a bold and
shameless fraud. Keduced to its last
analysis, the question is simply
whether Legislatures shall legislate,
and wtether the time honored in
stitution of the "twelve good men
and true" shall be trusted to declare
npon the testimony of the presiding
officers of the two housed, that a gross
fraud was perpetrated on them in
procuring their signatures to a bill
which had not been enacted by
two houses, but had been tabled.
It is not an occasion when public
policy or individual rights can toler
ate the suppression of an investiga
tion. The investigation should be
full, free and searching. "The
lights should be turned on," not off.
Nothing that is honest and pure and
of good repute need fear an in

to be protected from it.
