In his petition, filed Friday after- noon, the prosecuting attorney de- clares that the auditor is required by section 2515 of the- general code, to publish the report immediately after neceipt thereof, and that he has re- fused to do so.

John B. Bragg and Edgar Montgomery, to in- vestigate and examine said report of said commissioners; and that the then prosecuting attorney of said county and said persons so appoint- ed as aforesaid, investigated and ex- amined said commissioners' report; and that upon application to the court of common pleas, the time for such investigation and examination of said report was extended by said court; and that thereafter, the im estigation and examination of the commission- ers' report, so made by the prosecut- ing attorney and said persons, appoint- ed by the court, was reduced to writ- ing: and that on the eighth day of April, 1911. said persons and fije pros- ecuting attornev filed the financial statement of the commissioners and the report of said examination of the same with the defendant."
