T.I.MA rnIGHMG CRUM.
Wants Deftnite Information-Interesting
Cross-Firing Between Senators
Timan and Spooner.
News and Courier.
WastLington, January 29.-Sena
tor Tillman proposes to keep up the
fight on Crum in open session, and
today be introduced another resolu
tion, calling upon Secretary Shaw
to inform the Senate the exact date
of the commission under which
Crum is now holding office.
During the discussion it was
brought out in the cross-firing be
tween Senators Tillman and Spoon
- er that Crum is actually presiding
over the Charleston Custom House
without legal authority.
The President refuses to with
draw the nomination, and the con
test is to be fought ont in the Sen
ate when the case is reported from
the committee, as it probably will
be, before long.
Senator Tillman stated to-day
that he was not decided whether it
will be of any advantage to invite a
committee from Charleston to at
tend the hearing of the case before
the commerce committee on next
It seems to be the determination
of the friends of Crum to get a fa
vorable report on the nomination
from the committee, and then it re
mains for Senator Tillman to pre
vent confirmation if he can
The Senator has, by forcing the
discussion of the subject in open
Senate, proved conclusively to such
%men as Senators Spooner and Hale
*that Crum's present occupation of
the Charleston Custom House is
not justified by the law, nor by the
awkward reply of Secretary Shaw
to a resolution of inquiry adopted
by the Senate, at the instance of
Secretary of the Treasury Shaw,
in response to againquiry contained
in a previous resolution said:
-William D. Crum was appointed
collector at the port of Charleston,
S. C., March 20, 1903, and a tern
porary commission issued. Mr.
Crum qualified by executing bond
for $5o,ooo, and took oath of office
March 30, 1903- Mr. Crum was
again appointed December 7, 1903,
and has given bond in the sum of
$50,ooo, and took 'oath of office on
January 9. i9o4. There has been
no third appointment and no fourth
appointment. The same mnforma
tion is contained in a letter to the
*Hon. B R. Tillman, under date of
January 8, 1904. and~wbich appears
in the Congressional Record of Jan
uary 25, :904
"The resolution also asks. 'Is
Mr. Crum now in office and, if so,
under what authority of law?''
William D. Crum is- de facto collec
tor at the port of Charleston. S. C.
Whether he holds his position uin
der authority of law is determinable.
not by the executive department of
the Government, bot by the judi
ciary, and by that only. He is not
receiving pay because of the pro
wisions of Section 1,761."
Dnder Instructions From Roosevelt, Every
District In South Carolina to be Con
tested- -A Split in Prospect.
It is expected that at the republi
can State convention here on Feb
ruary 26, candidates will be placed
in the field for congress from every
district in the State. It is rumored
that the candidates will be white
mien, those who have held federal
offices since the advent of Mr. John
Capers in politics, although in one
or two of the districts some negro
may be put up. This movement
which has only been decided upon
in the last few days is the result of
orders received direct from Presi
dent Roosevelt. Roosevelt "wants
evryreubian congressional comn
mittee in the south to put out a
candidate and arouse enthuiasm so
that a large vote may be polled,"
according to a letter received from
him, although how he expects to
poll a large vote in this State for a
reoublican candidate as the party
now stands is not stated.
Anyhow there may be a split in
the g. o. p. in this State by order
of the fractious Deas, who is State
chairman and will protest. Deas
wants his race represented when
there is a prospect of candidates
being put up, especially as congress
very generously appropriates $3,ooo
for expenses when there is a con
test. The ambition therefore of
the leading republicans to put up
white men is likely to be thwarted.
There is also likely to be a split on
the matter of choosing delegates at
large. District Attorney Capers
wants to go and everyone knows
that Mr. Capers is not one of Deas'
friends. But Deas is not in office
and therefore cannot command the
convention but he has some follow
ing from which trouble is expected.
Anyhow there is a great probability
that the people at Washington,
those who are working for the re
nomination of the strenuous Roose
velt, will lose patience with the
South Carolina party and order a
reconstruction on harmony lines.
A Citizen of Texas Desires to Be Informed
of Certain People He Knew Here
Mr. J. B. Dugger, of Alvin,
Texas, writes Sheriff Buford an
interesting letter. He says he ex
pects to visit here next summer,
and wishes to learn of some people
he knew long ago. He tells Capt.
Buford that in the late war he lost
a comrade near the house of Mr.
Irvin Tiller, on Lynche's creek,
which he thinks "was near by a
creek called Big creek." He sup
poses the old people are dead, but
he wants the sons, it any are living,
to show him the graves of his com
pa.ions when he comes. Mr. Dug
ger, who informs the sheriff that
he desires to learn of n'any things
and places he has not been able to
hear of since 1865, goes on to say
that Mrs. Eliza Tiller, with some
others, hauled one of his compan
ions to Irvin Tiller's house.
If there arxe any Tillers on Lynch's
Creek or Big Creek, or any who
have moved from those places to
other points, they will confer a
favor by letting the same be known
to Sheriff Buford, who is anxious
to comply with Mr. Dugger's re
