I'lthl tuulnsl X.rdlel. In their motion for a new trial Frank' attorneys Rive 115 leasons wh.v the vr rilct aRalnst him should not be allowed to stand Most of these reasons seem to bo merely technical, but several of them. If true, seem to be substantial uiourIi to warrant a in w tnal Amonp other thincs, It ! nlli-ced tlmt the feellDK HR.ilnst Frank m tlant.i was sn bitter that it was not possible for him tn have a fair trial, that the "mnb spirit Invaded the court room durlnc the trial and intimidated the Jmy into returnlnii a veidlct of KUllt. and that time were men on the Jury who had atd h.foie behiR summoned foi duly that Flank was entity and that tho.v wanted to Kit on the Jury to "break his neck." To sustain tluse thaws Franks attot neys h.ne lull oiiuo-d allldavits from a number of persons to show that one Juror said that he Intended to net on the Juiy n'nl that In would "linns it until bell froze over" unless a verdict of culltv weio Ie turned This Juior is II II llenslee, and lie was the tlrst mm of the twelve chosen to try Frank, neither the State nor the.de fence niaktr.R objection.

Ilrriint-oit Impression. This Impus-don is enjirelv eriotnou There wcie powctfiil circuinstances whuh pointed to Ft. ink as the despoller anil murdeier of htlle Mui Chilean and these circumstances would have made his ac quittal difficult evi'ii If theie had not been a shred of direct evidence to connect him with the crime. Hut the State had the evidence of an eye wtne. tn suppoit the circumstances which first caused the arrest of Frank, This witness was Ihe iurio .lames Con. ley. who swore that he came upon Frank bendlnc over the body of .lai FhiiRan, that Frank coiif(seil he had made im proper advances to the Kill, that she ie. listed and that he struck her and she fell unconscious. The ncsro also swore that Frank saw he had Rone eo far that ho killed the Rlrl to protect himself. Frank then, ac cording tn the neRio's story to the Jurv, bribed the latter to take the Kirl's body to the basement and conceal It until op porlunlty offered to burn It In the fur nace. It was this story, told hv Conle.v to the Jury, which clinched the circumstances rtRalnst Kia.nk and resulted in the verdict of cullty. And It Is this story which Flank's attorneys will havo to break down to fiee their client In the event that he Rets a new trial and faces another Jury. Wiil'dcrcit In n I'nclory. Mary Cliacm was munleied on S.itur dav, Apiil :'i! Confederate Memoil.il Tiny -In the National I'encil factory, of which Leo M.

The police nrrcsted he, the nepro nlitht walcnmaii. and also Arthur Mulllnar, a .voutiK white man, who knew Mary rh.iKan, Later J. M. Clantt, fdrmer hook keeper aJ the factory, was arrested as a lesult of a statement by Fiank that (Jantt had seemed to be fond of Mary l'llllRIIII. The Coroner' Jury was In session severnl dnjs and heaid many witnesses, (lautt and Mulllnar proved alibis and weie released. Finally the Coroner's Jury oidered that Frank and the iieRt-o, Lee. be held for the llrand Jury. While Frank wns In Jail nwnltltiR the action of the irand Jury the poller nr icsttri .latins Conle.v, the lieRio sweeper at the factory, on suspicion of knowing somethltiR about the crime. Conle.v was prilled by the detectives and finally told the story, which he after- wind 1 elated on the stand, to the effect that Frank killed the lrl after maklnp lii.pi opir advances to her and hired him (Conley) to help dispose of the body. t on ley told several versions of the tiaRcd.v, but never varied fiom the main i hai Re that he found Frank bendliiR over the body of the Rill and wiir hired by Fiank to take the body to the basement. liiilli'liiienl nf l-'mnk tin this evidence Fiank was Indicted and on July -S he was put on tilal for Ids life. The State tllst established the I'.rcumsliincis which Incriminated Frank. the (lil.f one beiiiR Ills own ndmlssli i that Maty I'haR.iu came to his olllce about noon on April -t'. The State proved that the Rill was tievei seen alive after she entered Flank's ottlce and witnesses were llitioduced to swear that blood spots weie found on the tliior of a room Just In the rear of Frank's olllce. The State also piovrd that Frank was alone In the factory nearby alt of Satin. lay inornliiR and all of the after noon. It was also proved that when Lee, the nlRht watchman, came on duty at 4 o'clock Saturday afternoon Frank sent him awuy and told him not to come back until ' o'clock. I The State nlso llitioduced an affidavit ' made by the ncRress who cooked for the J Frank family to the- effect that Frank wns icreatly disturbed on Saturday nlRht and that she heard Mrs. Frank tell her mother that Frank tried to kilt hlmelf luring the nlRht. All of this was preliminary to the direct evidence nfialnst Frank of the iirio Conley. Conley repeated lit leiiRth . the charge he made In his afllriavlt about I Fiank killing the girl and In addition told ' of acts of sexual perversion by Frank Conley had been at the factory for two! yrars and said that he had been employed as a lookout bv Frank whenever the latter had girls In his office, which was almost weekly, accoidlliR to Conley. elrd n n l.nnkiint, The negto's story was one of the most remarkable anil revolting ever told ml a couit loom, and much of It was mi-, printable. He swoie that he was acting, as lookout for Frank the day Mary I'h.iRan went to Flank's ottlce and that ' half an hour after the girl eptcied he was summoned by Flunk, who told him that the girl had n slsted his advances, that he had struck he too hard, and hud killed hi i to keep-her from telling of Ills assault on her In pantomime Conley reenarttd before the Jury how lie and Frank took tin- gill's body to the basement, when- It was lain to be cremated in the furnace. Conley said Fiank agrenl to Rive him $2ii'l to keep silent, and he said he had rini.iltnd silent until Fiank deserted him and seemed to be tiylliR to fasten the, ci line on him. The liegto was ci os-eamined foi two daVH bv Liitln i Hosser. one of Frank's attornevs and one of the leaders of the (Jeorpla' bar. but the witness never vailed fiom his stoty. Trap after tiap was set bv Kosser. but the negio lefused to walk In. 'nry' Mor Xnliporlril. The State put on witnesses who cor-! roboiatdl Conle.v 's story as to his pies-, enc at the factoiy on the Saturday of i the crime. These witnesses swore they i saw ronley at the street entrance of the f'UFi'"- Fiank the defeme tlrst Hied to! establish an alibi. It was sourIi! to ac count for eveiy minute of his time cm the dav of the murder and to show that lw was at home at l'rhrV'",','l!1"l.!',, swoie that the body of Maty I liaR was beini; disposed of bv himself and KlThe' th.o.V of the defence was that I .-onlev murdered the slrl and that to save . i. i... t.A.x itin tnr ln"l- ins Finnk. Hy manv vv Itnesses 1- ran. time was accounted for on Satunla.v , but t over aRalnst till" was FiankN own ad- i mission that he was praitlcally alone in the factoiy neailv all of Satin day and ! that Marv PhaK.ni came to his omce. It was iiioved that she was lwvtr seen alive after eiiterlliK the factory. I The defence then pill rrai s niaiin tei in evidence. Many witnesses, most of them .lews, testified that his character was Rood. Itabbl Maix was one of th n witnesses. He told how Frank was pieslilent of the local IVnal H'lith and what an Inteiest he took In the sna RORiie. Man KlrK employed at the pencil fac tory, wue cnlled who testitlid that Ftanh had always been icspectful In Ills con duct toward them. Ill rebuttal, tho State also called other pencil factory Klrls. who swoie that Flank's chatneter was bad In ri-R.iid to women and who lelated speclilc In stances uf his conduct. Frank' Mntrmrnt. Then Flank made a statunciil In his own behalf.- It was a remaiknhle state, ment. covciIiir every minute of the day of tho crime. Fiank, apparently, was able to lemeinbrr ever thltiR that he did no matter how trivial. In fact, Ida mem ory for detail seemed uncanny. The siimmlnR up took several das. Luther .. Ilosser and Reuben Arnold, bolh leadera of the OeorRla bar, spoke for two dajs In hehalf of Frank, They chaiRCd lhat the neRin Conley killed Maty I'h.iRan and that his story Involv ing Frank was told to save IiIh own life. They also ehaiRed that the detectives, foi reasons of their own, were bent on conviclliiR Frank and that they had dllllcd Conley hi his smiy. It was durliiR Itosser's speech that tho Hi bt reference was made lo Fiank'a race. Kosser charRed that Flank was being prosecuted because he" was a .lew and asserted that the detectives weio In a conspiracy to convict him. Ilrsentrd UnrUI .rKllillenl, Hollcltor-Cieiieral Horsey, siiniminR up for the State, attacked Ilosser for allud Iiir to Frank's race. Horsey showed how .Mulllnax, i limit and Lea had all been ar rested before Frnnk and said that ac tion had bet n taken aRalnst the latter only because of the overwhelming evi dence aKalnst him. Horsey alluded to the fact that one of his own law partner was a Jew to show that he had no racial prejudice, .IiicIro Koan's charse was brief ami said to be absolutely Impartial. Tho Jury retlied and in forty mlnutea re. tinned a veidlct of guilty without recom- inendatlon to mercy, which meant that Frank must ho haiiKed. I Two ballots wcru taken one. us to , Frank's riiIII and the other an to whether I lie should be recommended to mercy, , which would have, niuanl llf Imprison, .ment. On the first ballot the Jury was I unanimous that k'ninW the iue.itlon of recommending to mercy eleven Juiors were for the death penalty and one lor mercy, and he Joined the ma. joi uy.
