"Wickersham's Case Considered.
The Senate in executive session yesterday
resumed its discussion of the nomination of
James Wickersham to be judge of the cir-
cuit court for the district of Alaska. Op-
position to confirmation was again led by
Senators McCumber and Nelson. After two
hours' consideration the Senate was ad-
journed without action."
Barnes nomination as Postmaster
of Washington is also held up by
Dillman - and it may yet present
the spectacle of both of us held over
indefinitely by filibustering!
Sunday- spent the afternoon
in the Congressional Library looking
up the 3 Japs. who were cast away
on Cape Ozette in 1832 - the book
"The Voyage of the Himmaleh & the
Morrison" & Perrys Japan Ex.
contain most of it & I think
it will make a most attractive
book or magazine article.
Judge Neville from Miss. told
me that sympathy was general &
growing in my favor on account
of my hold up by Senators
McCumber & Nelson.
