There are two Republican executive committees in Couth Carolina, and Mr. John G Capers, the national committee man for the State, has issued a letter from this city urging South Carolina Re publicans to pay no attention to the call Issued "by what is claimed to be an ex ecutive committee, of which J. W Tol bert Is recorded ns chairman, and which seems to be moved n Its actions by the three officeholders. Postmaster Harris, United States Marshal Adams and Dis trict Attorney Cochran, who operate, no doubt, by orders directly from the Post ofne Department in Washington, not from the White House." Mr. Capers says of the Tolbert or ganization that "'of the twenty-fit e mem bers of their State committee, twenty two of them are colored men and three of tbem white nun Of the seven Con gressional districts In the State, six of the Congressional chairmen are colored men and one a white man, R. R. Tolbert Of the forty-three counties In the State forty-two county chairmen are colored men and one county chairman a white man. R. R. Tolbert." The letter conclude as follows: "Are the colored men In the State, who really represent devoted interest to the Republican party In the nation at large, going to allow themselves to be led In solid black phalanx In this way for the sole purpose of carrying on their should ers a few white officeholders headed for the pie counter? I think not. I hope you will urge every man In your county and district to Ignore the Tolbert call, wait for the call for a meeting of the executive committee of the Blalock or ganization, which has been recognized by the national organization, and which will meet In March and call a convention for April, and also suspend any action looking to a county or district convention for the present for the same reasons."

The fact that the former President will be here fori three hours on Wednesday, when he Is to de liver his platform of principles before the Ohio constitutional convention, has been widely advertised through the State and an enormous crowd Is expected.

Mead Massle. both Re publicans of some prominence, the latter Insisting that the Republicans are de manding "Inspiring leadership."
