Iu.pb1lran party at Chicago.

Penrose followed up this astounding
charge with the declaration that certain
parties stood rondy to produoo the proofg
of this transactioti before a committee of
the Senate. He described the fund .
... . . .
t largest ever raised in the United
states for the nomination of a candidate
The Senator from Pennsylvania also
made the berious statement that he had
been informed that Col, Roosevelt's
admonitory letter to George B. Cortelyou,
chairman of the Republican National
Committee, was sent to "make a record (or
