i WILMINGTON, N- C Thursday Morning, AfcBiL 28. CRUAVS NOMINATION. WAS NOT CONFIRMED. Seostors Spooner and Daniel, on Opposite Side, Hade the Principal Speeches in Czecdtive Session of Senate. Bj Telegraph 10 me aornlng Star. Washington, April 27. The nom-. laation of William D. Crum to be collector of the port of Charleston, 8. C, was considered to-day In executive aesiion of the Senate, lasting from 4:35 P. M. to 9:15. The failure to confirm the appointment resulted. At the conclusion of arguments by Senators Gallinger, Spooner, Hale and Aldrich for confirmation, and Senators Daniel, Latimer, Gorman and Olay against confirmation. Senator Oockrell suggested that the Senate proceed to legislative business, and the suggestion was adopted. Senators Spooner and Daniel on opposite sides of the question, made the principal speeches. The former defended the Republican policy relative to free and equal citizenship, without regard to racial prejudices, . and the latter declared that the policy of elevating negroes to high positions was contrary to the established law of centuries, that'the Anglo-Saxon race is the chosen people to govern the world. After the doors were closed Senator Gallinger. who had charge of the nomination,' called attention to the several times the nomination had been sent to the Senate and the lone period it had been prevented from coming to a vote. Senators Latimer and Gorman discussed the question of senatorial courtesy, saying that Senator Tillman, who is opposed to the nomination, is now ill at his home in South Carolina and unable to be present. Senator Spooner then contended that the Republican party should not be asked to surrender its convictions as to the rights of man ; that the negro is held to be a citizen and as such is entitled to participate in the government He aaid the negro had been a good citizen, had not been lacking in soldiery or in any form of defence of the country, and that it is asking too much -of the Republican party to put it in the position of abandoning the policy of civil liberty which he said was the chief significance and the foundation of the party. In reply Senator Daniel declared that the appointment of negroes to hlcrh political offices, such as that to which Crum baa been named, seta the race dreaming of its rights, Inconsistent with the position of negroes in society, and inflicts more harm than good on both faces. He said such appointments tend to make the negro arrogant and offensive in bearing and inflame the race prejudices in the South and all places where negroes reside in great numbers. At this point Senator Oockrell said that it was apparent the question is a difficult one, but he doubted not that the good Providence eventually would point the way to a solution consistent with the desires of the whites and the Interest of the blacks. That timer he aald, had not arrived, however, and he proposed and the Senate decided to resume the legislative session and to take up the pension calendar. - Senator Cullom called up the treaty for the arbitration of pecuniary claims between the United States and South American republics, but after a brief discussion action was postponed until to-morrow. ' The Crum nomination dies with adjournment of the present session, but the action of the Democrats in taking a position which Republicans term a nuouster,tney argue, will warrant tne jf resident in again making a recess appointment PAYOR JUDQE PARKER.

Aside from the unexpected Introduction of personalities in debate by one or two delegates, the Democratic convention held here ttf-day to choose four delegates at large to the National convention, passed without interruption. The exchange of personalities began when Delegate Samuel B. Page, of Haverhill, questioned the purity of politics of Delegate John T. Amey, of Lancav. ter. Mr. Amey replied in kind and was promptly told that his statement was a He. Mr. Amey was quick with the declaration you are another; but the affair did not proceed beyond an exchange of words. The platform adopted, which demanded "tariff revision, control of the trusts, and a halt in the march towards imperialism" left the question of presidential nominees to the "wisdom of the delegates" of the national convention. It is understood that the delegates elected favor Judge Parker of New York. ON TUB DIAMOSD. Record of flames Played Yesterday by League Teams. By Telegraph to the Horning star. SOUTHERN LEAGUE.

Littlefield of Maine Replied to Bourke Cockran's Recent Speech A Lively eolloqny With DeArmond of Missouri Vr. Williams. By Telegraph to the Homing Star. Washington, April 27. -The attention of the Senate was devoted to day to consideration of reports of conference committees, set speeches on passage of bills to which there was little or no objection, and an executive session. The session began at 10 o'clock in the morning and continued until 8 in the evening. Final conference re- Eorts on the Sundry Civil, General eficiency, Postoffice and the Military Academy appropriation bills were agreed to practically without opposition. Speeches were made by . Mr. Cullom on the conduct of foreign affairs by Presidents McKinley and Roosevelt, by Mr. Teller on the public land question, and by Mr. McLaurin on the old age pension order and trusts. Mr. McLaurin contended that the pension order Els nothing less than legislation by the executive branch of the government and therefore unjustified and unwarranted. Mr. McLaurin said that of the 318 trusts, the administration had proceeded against only one. He criticised Mr. Roosevelt as an unsafe man for the presidency. When the conference report on the Postoffice appropriation bill was presented Mr. Clay and Mr. Gorman ex-pressedjregret thatthe'Senate confeeres bad found It necessary to eliminate the Senate provision permitting rural free delivery carriers to take subscriptions for newspapers, and Mr. Bimmons objected to the striking out of the Senate amendment providing that the condition of roads in any proposed district should not be allowed to prevent the establishment of rural free delivery routes. Mr. Frye called up and asked consideration of the bill creating a merchant marine commission. Mr. Bailey Indicated a disposition to object, saying it was his opinion that the commission would devote itself to the collection of data in the Interest of a ship subsidy bill, but Mr. Frye replied that in all probability the result would be a recommendation of discriminating duties. Mr. Bailey then withdrew his objection and the bill was passed. Mr. Lodge stated that he would like to bring up the Philippine bill, providing there was time. He asked Mr. Allison what was the prospect of adjournment. Mr. Allison said that insofar as appro-tlon bills were concerned there could be an adjournment to-morrow. "I understand, that one important conference must be disposed of before we adjourn. The bill relating to the canal zone. I learn it Is absolutely essential that it shall be passed in some form at the present session." "I understand," remarked. Mr. Lodge, "that there ought to be some Panama legislation before we adjourn." "So I understand," answered Mr. Allison. A resolution authorizing the continuation during the recess of the inquiry Into the right of Mr. Smoot to his seat in the Senate was favorably considered daring the day. House of Representatives. The House to-day adopted the con ference report in the General Deficiency, Sundry Civil, Military Academy and Postoffice appropriations bill and late In the day was the scene of an animated debate on the Tariff question, in which Messrs. Littlefield of Maine, Williams of Mississippi, Clark of Missouri, and others took part. Mr. Littlefield replied to Mr. Cockran's recent speeches, declaring that the New Yorker in his advocacy of free trade had added nothing to the sum of human knowledge. He asked the Democrats if they stood on the speech of Mr. Cockran, "the new risen leader of the Democracy." He further inquired of the Democrats if they approved or disapproved of Mr. Cockran's propositions. The Renubli cans, and the country, he said, were entitled to know. He directed a specific question to Mr. Williams if he approved of Mr. Cockran's policy. Mr. Williams remained silent Mr. Littlefield then sought a reply from Mr. Clark, of Missouri. Mr. Clark set the Democrats frantic by saying that when the House should give him an hour he would make a reply "that will knock some of you gentlemen silly." No one, he said, could reply "yes" or "no" to one hour of cheap demagogy. Screams of approval came from the Democrats at this utterance. "The gentleman from Missouri wants one hour to indulge in vindication and vituperation," retorted Mr. Littlefield. Mr. Littlefield pressed his demand for a categorical answer from any other man on the Democratic aide. Mr. Baker, of New York, aro.e. A great uproar went up from both sides of the House. "Will the gentleman yield," "No," said Mr. Littlefield, "fools rush in where angels dare not enter." Mr. Littlefield was drawn into a lively colloquy with Mr. DeArmond, of Missouri, much to the gratification of the Democrats and the apparent amusement of the occupants of the galleries. Mr. DeArmond said he would venture to gratify Mr. Little field to some extent He was interrupted with cries of "yes" or "no" irom ine isepu oilcans. - Continuing, Mr. DeArmond said that if Mr. Littlefield wanted infor mation as to the Democratic position, he would say that the position of the Democrats was to take off or to lower the duties wherever those duties sheltered trusts. "Bab, Bah. Bab." came from the Republican side. Mr. Littlefield called upon Mr. DeArmond to say whether he did or did not agree with Mr. Cockran's views. Democratic annlause arrested Mr. DeArmond when he said the Democratic party would declare for a revision of the tariff "so as to drive from shelter the trusts who are now robbing the people." He then wrought the Democrats up to a high Ditch of enthusiasm when he asked Mr. Little- new to answer -yes" or "no" as to whether the Republicans would drive out tne trusts. Mr. Littlefield. amid Democratic jeers and laughter, said he would an swer wnen be got ready." . t, air. wuuams, replying to Mr. Littlefield, inquired If protection was not a subsidy indirect.

Mr LiuMS tha dlct question of rtnhSSw e ended the ad-sornJl0nY'. President McKinley. t "e d ' answered Mr. Lit "Every word of it," Jlr. Williama further Inquired. "Yer," was there-ply. Mr. Williams then, reminded Mr. Littlefield that they stood together against the spirit of colonialism, and said if be (Williams) : had said yes or no simply to the inquiry as to whether he approved the Cockran speech be would not have been telling the truth. He (Mr. Williams) endorsed the Cockran speech, but in some particulars he differed with it . "Mr. Littlefield," he added, "knew that there was not only nobody trying to make a campaign on free trade, but he knew as a matter of fact that there could not possibly be any free trade in the United States." Mr. Williams inquired of the Republicans if they were going out on the issue "borrowed from the gam biers' table of standing pat," and why the President was hurrying up Congress and trying to get rid of it. The Democrats, he said, had been charged with having no principles or issue, "The only trouble is," he said, "that your policies of inaction and malaction nave been growing up around us until they are so numerous as to constitute a wilderness that we can hardly find our way out of." Vociferous cheering from the Democrats greeted the minority leader as he sat down. A resolution offered by Mr. Gros-venor for general leave for all members to print' was voted down, 106 to 134. the Democrats voting with the majority. B.X 6:25 tne House took a recess ua til 9 o'clock to-night. Tha TTnniA oh t naisfld tha bill for the transportation of army supplies in American vessels, 123 to 98.

That the Cockran Resolution for Investigation of the Dalzell Chares is Not a Privileged Matter. By Telegraph to the Horning Star. -Washington, April 27. Speaker Cannon to-day ruled that the Cockran resolution for an investigation of the Dalzell charge that Cockran had campaigned for McKinley for "hire" in 1896, was not a privileged matter. ,In an elaborate opinion tha 8peaker said he was warranted in taking judicial knowledge of the fact that the offence set forth as charged against Mr. Cockran, "If committed at all, was committed while the gentleman from New York was neither a member nor a member-elect of this House.'' "The chair," he said, "eels justified in taking cognizance of the fact that what is alleged to be charged constitutes no crime." "At most,"he said'thevonly question was one as to the propriety of the conduct of a private citizen." The House, he declared, could not rightfully pun ish him if it desired to do so. He then ruled "that the chair holds that the resolution may not be entertained as a question of privilege." Mr. Williams, the minority leader, at once appealed from the ruling. Immediately following which Mr; Payne, the majority leader, moved i to lay the motion on the table, which motion was carried, 169 to 185, a strict party vote. SITUATION IN COBGRESS. Talk of an Extra Session of the Seaate. The Flail Adjournment By Telegraph to the Horning Btar. Washington, April 27.

Russians Report That One of Their Columns Sustained Se-vere Loss in Crossing. ' NO FURTHER ADVANCE MADE. Japanese Continue to Cross la Small f quadsA Charxe Repulsed Ros-V slans Confident That the Japs Can Make No Headway. By Cable to the Horning Star. St. Petersburg, April 27, 6:29 P. M. The general staff believe that one of the Japanese columns while attempting to cross the Yalu river at Turenchen sustained severe loss, owing to unexpected shelling by a Russian battery from the opposite bank which destroyed the Japanese pontoons. ' The Japanese, the general staff says, tried to cross the river at six or seven different points and succeeded only at qne point. The staff has no further news. The crossing of the Yalu river by the Japanese forces did not Impress the Russians In view of the reports of the ensuing Japanese reverse. These reports became more persistent at noon and caused an all round rise in prices on the Bourse, but, so far there has been no confirmation of them officially. . , - -yj.. A charge Repulsed. uov Yang, April.27. The J apanese troops which crossed the Yalu north of. Elutjtou (Tchangd Jiou) charged, during the night of April 26th 27tb, the Russian position near LIzavena, a village on the Manchurian bank of the Yalu. They were repulsed but their loss is not known. Two gunboats steamed up the river to the aupportofthe Japanese, when a Russian field battery at Amazsn opened upon them, resulting in a duel which lasted for twenty minutes. The Russian fire was too hot and the gunboats were forced to turn and steam out of range. The Japanese were facilitated In crossing by the occupation of ihe island of Samalindo. Paris, April 27. A dispatch to the Temps" from St. Petersburg says: "The Japanese continue to cross the Yalu river In small squads. The Russian tactics seem to be not to seriously oapose these preliminary movements. - "The staff of the ministry of marine gives credence to but does not positively confirm the report that (he Vladivostok squadron sank two Japanese transports bound for the island of Sakhalin." , Russian Line of Defence. Chicago, April 27. A special to the "Dally News" from New Chwang says: "If official Russian advices from Mukden can be relied on, General Kuropatkln's deployment-Js so far advanced that it covers the very lines the Japanese propose to occupy. Should the Japanese succeed In driving the Russians north the Muscovite line of defence will extend from New Ohwang to Llao Yang and from Liao Yang to the Yalu river. The Russian generals profess confidence that the Japanese can make no headway by frontal attacks while the Russians can cope with the widest flanking operations the Mikado's men are likely to undertake. "When these operations begin, say the Muscovites, Kuropatkln's countar-strokes will bring down the Japanese scheme of offence like a house of cards. The continued delay on the part of the enemy Is a great surprise to the Russians." Snok a Transport. Paris, April 28. The St. Petersburg correspondent of the "Journal" reports that a Russian submarine boat has sunk a Japanese transport which was conveying 600 men to Corea and that all the troops were lost. London, April 28.
