SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, represented in the General Assembly: An Act entitled, “An Act in relation to the probate of wills,” approved June 3, 1897, in force July 1, 1897, as amended, is amended, by amending section 1 thereof, and by adding a section, to be known as section la, to read as follows:

$ 1. That before any will shall be admitted to probate the person desiring to have the same probated shall file a petition in the Probate Court of the proper county asking that said will be admitted to probate, which petition shall state the time and place of the death of the testator and the place of his residence at the time of his death, also the names of all the heirs-at-law, legatees and devisees with the place of residence of each, when known, and when unknown the petition shall so state, and the said petition shall be verified by the affidavit of the petitioner. And thereupon the clerk of said County Court shall send by mail to each of said parties a copy of said petition, within five days after the filing thereof, and not less than twenty days prior to the hearing on said petition. And in case the post office address of any of said parties is not shown by the said petition, then publication shall be made for at least three successive weeks before the day set for the hearing in a newspaper of general circulation published in the county where said will is to be offered for probate, which publication notice shall contain the name of the testator, the heirs-at-law, legatees and devisees, when known, the time and place where said will is to be offered for probate: Provided, that in case such a petition is not filed and a will has been deposited in said County Court for the space 10 days, then it shall be the duty of the County Court to proceed to probate said will without petition being filed, but only after having caused publication and notice of the intention to probate said will to be given to the parties in interest as to the court may seem proper: And, provided, further, that if, on the presentation of such petition

, all of the heirs and legatees of such testator shall personally appear in court or, in case they are of legal age and under no disability, shall file in writing their appearance and waiver of notice, then, such will may be admitted to probate without notice. If any heir, legatee or devisee shall be a minor the petition shall set forth the fact of such minority and a guardian ad litem shall be appointed by the court for such minor. In event there are unknown heirs, devisees and legatees and it shall appear after the probate of a will that any of said unknown heirs, devisees and legatees was a minor at the time such will was ad

of

mitted to probate, then the fact that no guardian ad litem for such minor was appointed shall not invalidate the probate of such will.

$ la. All probate of wills declared before the taking effect of this Act, in which service was had upon any of the parties by one publication at least three weeks before the day set for the hearing in a newspaper of general circulation, published in the county where the will was offered for probate, are legalized and declared valid to the same extent and purpose as if the publication had been for three successive weeks.

BUILDING MATERIAL-INVESTIGATION OF Cost,

(Senate Joint Resolution No. 17.) WHEREAS, The opinion prevails that the prices of building materials are unnecessarily high, thus retarding both public and private works, especially as to the following items: Paints, oils, plumbing, materials, lime, cement, gypsum, brick, crushed rock, sand, gravel, ground pitch and asphalt, steel, iron, and all material used in building construction, and the construction of public roads, public works and public buildings; and

WHEREAS, It is charged that uniform prices are charged by dealers in many such materials, and that illegal conspiraces, combinations and trusts in restraint of trade exist, having for their purpose extortion both of public and private enterprises, and

WHEREAS, Such combinations, if existant at this period of reconstruction and readjustment, are inimical to the public welfare, retard public and private projects and threaten the well being, stability, and good order of society, by conscienceless disregard of the rights of the people: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, by the Senate of Illinois, the House of Representatives concurring therein, That a joint committee of ten (10) shall be appointed, five (5) members thereof to be appointed by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and five (5) members thereof to be appointed by the President of ihe Senate, upon recommendation of the Executive Committee, to make a careful examination of the conditions appertaining to the prices of the commodities heretofore referred to; to ascertain whether a combination or combinations exist in any of said lines of business for the illegal purpose of determining and establishing the prices of such commodities, to ascertain the cost of production of said articles and the elements entering into the same, the profits derived by such dealers, whether such dealers are engaged in “profiteering;” to investigate such cost of production and market price of such commodities at this time, during the period of the war with the Central Powers of Europe, and for two years prior thereto; to investigate the compensation to labor in the production of such material during said periods, not with the view of diminishing wages, but merely for the purpose of ascertaining whether prices of such materials are disproportionate to the profits derived therefrom, to ascertain the dividends paid by corporations in said periods, and the profits derived by persons, firms, copartnerships, or any character of business associations, engaged in said business during said years; also to ascertain the charges for freight during such periods; also to inquire into the practicability, feasibility and desirability of the State of Illinois engaging in the business of preparing and manufacturing materials for State and public road building purposes.
