LEO M. FRANK GIVES OUT
STATEMENT FROM HIS
CIRCUMST ANCES I
Says He Was Prosecuted For a|
Crime of Which He Had No
(My Associated Press.)
ATLANTA, Nov. 27.?Leo M. Frank,
under sentence of death for the mur
der here in April 1913, of Mary Pha
gan, today gave out a statement to !
the public declaring his innocence of
the crime and reviewing the circum
stances surrounding bis trial and the
legal steps taken to obtain for him
a rehearing or the setting aside of the
Frank's statement was given out
from his cell in the Fulton County
Jail, where he has been Confined since
his arrest several days following the j
discovery of Mary Phagan's body In
tho basement of the pencil factory of
which Frank was superintendent. He
declared he has been "prosecuted
wrongfully and grotesquely for a |
crime of which I have, no knowledge,"
and mentioned that in all the steps I
taken for a new trial the question or
his guilt or innocenco has never been
reviewed by the higher courts, but !
only the legality of the proceedings
have been considered.
Commenting upon the conditions
and circumstances surrounding his !
trial in Atlanta in July and August, !
1913, the prisoner in his statement
says: "The jurors heard th? demon
strations both within and without the
court room, the applausce when the
prosecution acored a point; the dis
approval when the defense won a I
point; they saw the chief of Atlanta
pplice and the colonel of the miltla |
In conference with his honor the
judge." Continuing the statement
"If those conditions which ' obtained
constitute a legal judicial frial; if the !
issue of life and death conld be reas
onably presumed to bo faithfully con
sidered in such an atmosphere? then
God help us all. * * C-nsldor the
12 jurors; they were cn trial too;
their'very lives.hung In the balance.'*
The statement relates briefly the !
acth'u-, of Frank on the day the raur
dor was committed and the prisoner I
then turns to a vigorous denunciation |
of James Conley, ? negro, who was
employed es a sweeper at. the pencil j
factory, and who waa the prosecu-l
tton'B principal witness. Conley now
Is serving a year's sentence. as an ac- j
ceasory after the fact to the. Pbagan I
girl's murder. "It was not shown,"
the statement declares, "that. Jim|
Cohiey, who had a iohg police record
bad neither the motive to conceivo
the crime nor the opportunity to com
mit it * * Before you can take hla
negro's word, he must show that ho j
himself Is innocent,"
Frank closes his statement with re- j
iteration of his declaration of his own !
innocence and with* further charges
against the veracity of Cohiey.
