Senator Uernard Downing, ranking Uammnny member of the commlttea. declared that the committee had. Hhoued no concorted wrongdoing by public olllclals, but had proved to tho people that New York never had an administration so free from graft.

"The ilinrg.- of partisanship in the Inqnirv, besides bring groundless, Is irrelevant If the proofs establish abuses.
