In succession, "and while the con?
ventiop -cheered each- newrpoint-of

guns of his best oratory - on" the re
publican administration for all ; 3 its
policies ranging from foreign " to do

tins developments f tit congrefcsion
al investigations at 'Washington.
Referring to senate inquiries in his
address,- Senator -Harrison was un
sparing in this- criticism of former
Secretaries Denby and Fall,-' former
R. Forbea, former head of .the vet

was these investigations that put ? a

and lashed Newberry rfrom tha sen
ate. It was these investigations that
led a republican aenate to convict its
ewn republican national - committee
for ''framing' a democratie aenator
because he dared to do the risrhs.
Senator Harrison declared nothing
in "burlesque or opera ftouffe"? was
comparable -to the "scene, - recently
enacted at Cleveland?-in. the efforts
of the ailent sphinx of the ' Potomac
