When District Attorney Capers asked
McCarthy if he knew John King
and Edward Horgan, alias Murphy, he
replied: "Oh, yes, I know them. I co
operated with them in the robbery of the
post offle at Latta on February 25, 1004."
On further examination MoCarthy
gave a full account of the movements .of
tho gang which infested this State some
two years ago.
In part MoCarthy said: "I met the
the two Habens, Rudolph and Chris, in
Charleston in 1003, and saw King and

When asked to give an account of the
robbery at Latta MoCarthy, in part,
said: "Well, after a conference with
several members of the gang it was de
cided to have a try at the post offloe or
bank at Latta. Two of us went up there
to look over tho ground, and then the
rest of us followed-Morgan, King, my
self and one other. We went to Dillon
and got breakfast in a house in the fac
tory district. Morgan and Shorty, who
had boen over to Latta, came up to us
and reported that lt looked good. We
oooked dinner and supper in the woods,
hear the track, between Dillon and
Latta, and after dark set out for Latta,
halting on the edge of the town until
midnight, when we entered. We broke
open a carpenter's chest in an unfinished
house, endeavoring to find the neoessary
tools; we Anally went to a blacksmith's
shop and got a sledge hammer, orowbar,
chisel, brace and other instruments. We
went into the bank, and King and myself
kept watch, while the two others did
the work. The bank, which was in the
same building with the post office, was
blown all right, but the force of tho ex
plosion jammed the door and there was
nothing doing in tho swag lino; so we
triod tho post office safe. Morgan and
Shorty wore inside, and pretty soon I

Going back a bit, McCarthy said, "I
first mot tho two Habens in tho fall of
1008 at tho Star Thoatro. Shorty was
with thom and I mot Gus Do Ford cit bet
at tho thoatro or at Habons's house. De
Ford brought dynamite to tho city and
tho glycerine was extracted, so that tho
puro glycerine might bo obtained. The
operation was carried on in Habons's
house. Shortly afterwards Shorty, Mor

sont out and it report cd that Donmark
was all right. Wo workod it safely and
oamo back to Charleston, taking the
money to Habons's house. Wo had about
$S0O between tho four of us. Wo all
counted out our part, and Habens went
out and had it changed into papor. I
spent most of mino nt tho Star Thoatro.
"Wo thought wo'd try Mould. Olivo,

Habons's house and started out. Didn't

$600 in cash, bosidos stamps. I came
back to charleston with tho stamps and
saw Habens the next morning and de
livered to him the stamps, which ho put

"I dug up the tools in Rudolph Ra

from Rabeos, went to Greenwood, where
I was met by Horgan and Shorty. We
went over to Seneca and robbed the
Courtenay bank, securing some $0,000 or
$8,000; we got about $500 worth of dia
monds in the haul. We hid about $2,000
in silver in the ground and put the paper
money in a satchell. I oame on to
Charleston and was met at the dept by
Rabona and another man. We went to
Chris Rabens's store, and I gave him all
the money burnt and torn by the explo

bery, and he and I went baok after the
buried silver, but it oould not be found.
Rabens and myself then went up to Bal

"Ono night after we came back with

a conference at Rahons's houso, and de
cided to soo how things stood at St.

that wont up to look over tho situation
reported favorably, and wo started to St.

out to tho Sovou-milo Run by Rabona.

While tho District Attornoy still had a
few quest ions to put to tho wit ness, and
so stated to tho Court, tho witness was
turned ovor to tho cross-examination.
Ho said ho had hoon sentenced to sixteen
years in North Carolina for burglary,
but ho had escaped after sixtoon months
in jail. He i's now sorving a sontonoo in
Vormont for robbing a post oflico, and
was brought from the State prison to
this State, and yostorday faced his al

testimony. Of course bo was often in
terrupted, and many objootions woro
mado to questions by tho defendant's at

substantially tho most interesting parts
of his narrative.
McCarthy told Ids story in a quiet,

of a gang of bank and post office rob

turned Skates evidenoe and told the
story of a series of robberies in South

his testimony was corroborated by
