Letter fross Steel Trast Head. '
"The enthusiasm wttb which the Roose

unguarded moment to say that a letter

and would be sprung as an offset' to the
undented charge of Mr. Houser that men
high In the council of tha United States
steel corporation and th International
Harvester company were openly support

"The remarkable fact about this al
leged letter Is the fact that the only
ropy In existence, if It exists' at all, seems
to be in the sole psaseasion ot Mr. Roose

ity, by reason of their Intimate connec

know what the United Mate Steel cor

to escape the chances made openly by Mr.
Houser. representing Senator La Fotlette,
there can be no dispute. 80 far as Mr.

that Mr. Noye I absolutely and com

that the election of Senator Stephenson
was brought about by the reckless, es
travagant aad wrongful us of money.
You msy glows It over, smile about It,

fenator Kenyan, In a scathing denun

been used by th veteran Wisconsin sen
ator In his campaign for his seat, niade
th foregoing part f a vigorous speech
In tli aenat today, Th low senator,
with .rVnalore Clapp, Jones, Keftii pd
Lea, dissented from the majority report
of th committee which Investigated th
election and held that cheriss of bribery
and corruption had not been proved. Sen
ator Kenyan denounced th election a
"an organised riot ot corruption. Inde
fensible and tainted at II fountain,"
Rl.t at rarrnpllaa."
'The methods employed would not hav
dignified a csndldaoy for county slier Iff."
he said. "Th election waa th result
of an organised riot of corruption, a de
baurhery ot th electorate by treating,
employment, purchases of nwsppr In
fluence and other despicable method,
creating by money, political enthusiasm
and securing political support. Such prao

aroused, but when once aroused the
American people' will drive th money
changers from tho temple and smite the
arrogant demon of corruption wherever
Its vile head may appear."
Seats in the United States senate, de
clared Mr. Kenyon, did not belong to
tne highest bidder. If seat were to be
bought snd sold as merchandise, .then
he foretold .the decadence ot tho repub
People, Mot Money, ta Rale. .
"If men can be sent here by money.
h continued, "other can be defeated
by money, and there are men In this
chamber who know what It- mean to
have the puree of great Interests opened
to defeat them. We are marching on; no

We, are advancing.

"We at least hav had an investigation,
a thorough one and as the Hd haa been
