Resolved, That the Secretary of State be required to at once notify the trustees of all State charitable institutions, hospitals for the insane, State reformatories and State normal universities, and State Board of Agriculture, to furnish him, within the next thirty days, an itemized statement of all the expenditures of public funds, for the years of 1897 and 1898, properly verified, showing when and to whom payments were made, and specifically stating on what account; and the Secretary of State is requested to furnish each member of the Forty-first General Assembly of Illinois a true copy of each report so made to him, without delay, upon the receipt of the same from the respective boards of trustees of the institutions aforesaid.
