how they have been remembered:

GREENvILLE, March 29.-It appears nl
that open war upon the alleged Inde- in
pendent party in .this State is to be b
waged by the straightout Republicans in
on the line of Canary Miller's recent A]
trumpet call to arms. M. H. Bryce, the d
somewhat conspicuous Oconee County a
Republican, reached here to-day on his
way from Washington, and issued a sei
call for a mass meeting of straightout a
Republicans, to be heid at Walhalla, on ca
, Monday; for the purpose of denouncing T
s the so-called Independents and appeal- T
ing to President Harrison not to recog- an
nize thera in the distribution of Federal
4 pap in the State. en
Bryce gives out a statement that g
President Harrison intimated but a day s
or two ago to a party of South Carolina ,
Republicans whom he was hearing on
z the subject of State appointments that vI'
he proposed to take care of the Inde- sh
pendents in the distribution of places in In
South Carolina. It seems that the Bryce, a,,
? Brayton and Tolbert crowd have taken ti<
e fright at this and are seeking to bring E
condemnation upon the Independents. lF
