It could just be that he's confused - he is learning that it is okay to go potty in the house and doesn't fully understand that you only want him to go on the papers - and his accidents at nighttime are just a coincidence. He's also very young and prone to accidents. Expecting him to go ONLY on the papers is a lot to ask of a 9-week-old puppy that you've only had for a few days. Just keep praising him for going where you want him to go, not letting him out of your sight while you're home (prevent him from having accidents, basically), and scooping him up and taking him to the appropriate place when you catch him in the middle of an accident. I'd give the crate thing another try. Of course a puppy is going to cry when separated from you, especially since he is just now starting to settle into your home. Just let him cry it out. :)

Do a lot of other dogs go through your yard? Is that why you don't want to take him outside?
