Broke Up in a Row.

GREENVILLE, Miss., Oct. 4. The Republicans of this county yesterday held a convention in this city. It has leaked out that it broke up in a row. The Hill faction, the more reputable faction of the party in the State, was led by a young colored lawyer of Greenville, Welford H. Smith, and the anti-Hill element were under the leadership of G. W. Gayles, of Bolivar county. The Hill men, not receiving fair treatment at the hands of their opponents, decided to select their own set of delegates to the District Convention to meet here to-morrow. So there will be two delegations to wrangle over the county’s representatives in the District Convention.
