Results of Corrupt
Detroit, Mich., Oct. 9.-(By A. P.)
-Sentator Robert M. LaFollette, In-
dependent presidential candidate de-
chred here tonight in his first cam-
paign speech in the middle west that
"the use of money in doubtful states
is only one of the methods by which
the Republican national committee
and its financial supporters are striv-
ing to save their candidates from ut-
"Far more insidious, far more cor-
rupt in its ultimate social conse-
quences," he added, " is the use of the
financial and economic power of bus-
iness interests to intimidate and co-
erce citizens who are giving their
support to the Progressive ticket.
This pressure is being brought to
bear upon business men, home own-
ers, borrowers and employers-upon
every class of citizen whose economic
positions enables the powerful inter-
ests to apply the thumbscrew."
Declaring that the Senate commit-
tee on campaign expenditures which
he has requested to make an investi-
gation of the "slush fund" charge is
"not a white washing committe," the
Wisconsin senator said he was con-
fident that "when the Borah commit-
tee turns the searchlight upon the
transactions of the Republican na-
tional committee, Mr. Butler will be
far less placid about the use of slush
funds for campaigning purposes than
he is today."
"At my leisure today," continued
the Senator, "I have been re-examin-
ing the wonder letter through which
the $600,000 fund for the state of
Pennsylvania is being solicited. I
have noticed an interesting fact. I
find that according to the letter
head the territory assigned to Mr.
Grundy's committee is specifically
defined as 'outside Pittsburgh dis-
"What does this mean? Why has
Pittsburgh, the stronghold of the
steel trust and the Mellon interests,
been set aside as a special hunting
ground for campaign collections? Ij
want to know what the quota for this
Pittsburgh district is. I want to
know how much is to come from the
Mellon bank and its affiliated inter-
