This statement, which is likely to he Inter? esting gossip In the camp of tho op? position crowd, Is as follows: "In a recent Issue of your paper. In which you refer to tho fact that tho Slate Republican Executive Conimltteo of South Carolina had warmly Indorsed President Taft and pledged eighteen delegates from the State for his re nomlnaliou. you say: "'This action or Ihe South Carolina Reptibllciai leaders, who are largely Federal officeholders, adds eighteen delegates to tho Taft column.'

State chair? man, vice-chairman and secretary, two metnbers at large and three members from each of the congressional dis? tricts In tiie Stale, has not a Single Federal officeholder upon Its commit? tee, of which the writer Is a member, i In addition to being the member of the national committee for the State. "There Is In the State a small coterio of Federal otlleenoldcrs. augmented by a number of more or less Irresponsible persons, who claim to be the organiza? tion. So far they hove Indorsed no one, anil it really makes very little differ? ence whom they Indorse, as they will have no Influence In party affairs, and do not ropresent the Itcpnbllcans In the South, who ore at heart trylngto build up a high-class militant, Re? publican party."
