When the Invitation to assist in tne
assassination was tendered to McCar
ver it was represented that Sheriff Me
Carver knew all about it, and that
Judge Cooper of the criminal court
was not in the dark. Of course these
representations were untrue, and were
made by Smith for the purpose, if pos
sible, of mixing Sheriff McCarver up In
the affair through his son, so his hands
would be tied if an investigation should
be instituted bv the authorities. The
scheme was a bold one, but it failed.
McCarver's examination resulted in
the arrest of Jailor Cox for perjury and
the fixing of a 810,000 bond on Mc
Carver's head to insure his remaining
in the city. McCarver did not give
this bond yesterday and as a conse
quence he spent the day behind the
big gate of the Shelby county bastile,
nominally a deputy, but really a pris
oner. Sheriff McCarver had been told of the
plot by his son several days before the
grand' jury had got hold of the boy's
story, and because he did not tell what
he knew to the inquisitors he is receiv
ing some censure at the hands of the
members. He and Judge Cooper had a
long conversation Saturday night and
it is said that the judge read the riot
act to the high sheriff.
