The Day Book today asked
McGrath if he had taken any
steps toward locating Sims with
a view to arresting him. -
"Why, no," said McGrath. "I
haven't the least idea where Sjms
is now."
"Have you made any effort to
find Sims at all?" McGrath, was
asked.
"Oh, don't bother me," he an
swered. "If you are so disturbed
about this man Sims why don't
you find him and arrest him your
self?" "Do you mean that The Day
Book should find Sims and arrest
him?"
"Sure," said McGrath. "So far
as I can make out you are the
only people that are bothering
about Sims."
"Have you ever heard of Mrs.
F. A. Cass, the mother of the girl
Sims trapped into a bigamous
marriage?"
J'Yes, I've heard of her," said
McGrath.
"Have you eevr heard that
Mrs. Cass is worried about her
daughter?"
"I heard something about it,"
said the man Andy Lawrence
chose for tlerk of the Superior
Court.
''Then in that case it is not true
that The Day Book is the only
one bothering about Sims?
At this point McGrath relapsed
into intense silence- and refused to
answer any more questions.
Clifford Fail, the Daily News
t deputy sheriff who "was with Ed
ward Meyers when Meyers tried
to hold up Rutherford Cook and
was shot and killed by Cook, and
who now is under indictment for
highway robbery, says that Sims
is a good friend of his.
"I saw Sims one week ago Fri
day," said Fail today. "He told
me that he was going to take Hil
da Cass and beat it out of the city.
He told me to tell Meyers that he
would write him.
"Sims didn't seem to be wor
rying about the indictment
against him. He was perfectly
sure he would be allowed to leave
the city ."
