Whereas the Rev. M.A. Matthews of this city has been quoted in one of the daily papers as making certain statements reflecting upon the integrity of this Council; and,
Whereas it is to be assumed that a man of the position and calling of said Rev. Matthews would not make any charges without a good reason and sufficient foundation therefor:
Now therefore be it resolved that the Chair appoint a committee of three who shall invite said Rev. M.A. Matthews to appear before them and specify wherein the Council or the members thereof have manifested "symptoms of graftitis."

Resolution establishing subcommittee to investigate Rev. Mark Matthews' claims about "graftitis" in the City Council, January 2, 1905
