Each member of the said commission shall have equal authority, power and voting strength in considering and acting upon any matters which may be brought to the attention of the commission and on which the commission may act and the said commission shall have power and authority to investigate the methods and conditions of mining in the State of Illinois with special reference to the safety of human lives and property and the conservation of coal deposits. § 2. In making an investigation as contemplated in this Act, said commissioners shall have the power to issue subpoenas for the attendance of witnesses, which shall be under the seal of the commission and signed by the chairman or secretary of said commission. In case any person shall wilfully fail or refuse to obey such subpoena, it shall be the duty of the Circuit Court of any county, upon application of the said commissioners, to issue an attachment for such witness, and compel such witness to attend before the commissioners, and give his testimony upon such matters as shall be lawfully required by such commissioners; and the said court shall have the power to punish for contempt, as in other cases of refusal to obey the process and order of such court. The fees of witnesses shall be the same as in the courts of record and shall be paid out of the appropriation hereinafter made. And upon order duly entered of record by the said commission any one or more members of the said commission shall be empowered to take testimony touching the matters within the jurisdiction of the said commission and report the same to the said commission. Said commission shall have power and are authorized to adopt a seal and to make such rules not inconsistent with or contrary to law for the government of proceedings before it, as it may deem proper and shall have the same power to enforce such rules and to preserve order and decorum in its presence as is vested by the common law or statute of this State in any court of general jurisdiction. § 3. Said commission shall meet at the State Capitol building in Springfield on the second Tuesday after notice of their appointment and shall immediately elect a chairman and secretary from among their number, one of whom shall be a coal mine owner and the other a coal miner. Said commission shall cause a record to be kept of all its proceedings. Five members of the said commission shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business, but a less number than a quorum may adjourn the meeting of the commission from time to time. Meetings of the said commission other than called meetings, as provided for herein, may be held at such times and places within the State of Illinois, as may be fixed by the said commission. A meeting of the said commission shall be held upon the written request of any three members of the said commission signed by them and delivered to the secretary, who shall, upon receipt of such request, notify each member of said commission by mail of such meeting so to be held, and the time and place thereof. And no such meeting shall be teld less than five days after the mailing of notice of the said meeting to the members of said commission by the secretary. Such called meeting shall be held either in Springfield or Chicago. § 4. Said commission shall report to the Governor and to the General Assembly at its next regular session, submitting, so far as they have unanimously agreed, a proposed revision of mining laws of the State, together with such other recommendations as to the commission shall seem fit and proper relating to mining in the State of Illinois. And where there is not unanimous agreement upon any recommendation there shall be submitted in like manner separate reports embodying the recommendations of any one or more members of the said commission, which said reports shall each set forth in detail the recommendation of the commissioner or commissioners signing said report and shall embody his or their respective reasons for such recommendations and his or their objection to the report of other members of the commission. The duties and functions of said eommission shall cease and the terms of office of the respective commissioners shall terminate upon the adjournment of the Fifty-second General Assembly. § 5.
