PRISONER DRAGGED OUT OF CELL BY HEELS AND HANGED; CROWDS VIEW SWAYING BODY MARIETTA, (ia., Vug. 17.—At noon today the body of I.eo Frank, after dangling all morning from the tree where he was hanged last night by a mob, which bound the guards and dragged him from the prison farm at Milledgeville, was on it way to Atlanta. Sheriff Hicks, of Cobb county, could not be found during the morning and the coroner had no authority to remove the body. The horror of the lynching was intensified as the limp body, soaked with blood, which poured from the half-heated wound in Frank's neck, swung in the breeze. The news that Frank's body was still hanging spread like wrldfire about the country. Automobile parties from Atlanta, Rosswell, Marietta and other points were soon en route. All roads lead ing to the death tree became clogged with machines and impassable. At noon 5,000 persons were around the tree, gazing upon the corpse. Frank's body was not cut down until after a number of speeches had been made under the tree from which he was hanged. One man urged that the body be mutilated. Judge Morris, who was on the scene, opposed such an act and urged that order be observed at all costs. m The crowd voted against mutilation of the body. It was lowered from the tree and placed in a basket on a wagon, to be taken to Marietta, where the in quest was to be held. As the wagon started, threats of mutilation were again heard. Judge Morris lifted the corpse into his automobile and sped toward Atlanta. An undertaker met him in the city. Tho it was known this afternoon that Frank's body was in town, its hiding place was kept secret. > Despite the pleadings of Judge Morris, several men stamped Frank's face with their heels as the body lay on the ground under the death tree. The body of Hrank was found hanging to a tree about two miles east of Marietta this morning. The famous prisoner was lynched by an automobile party of kidnapers, who appeared at the state prison at Mill edgeville last night, overpowered Warden Smith, Superintendent Burke and the guards, and then dragged Frank from the dormitory bv the heels. Frank's wrists were handcuffed when his body was found. His hair was disheveled, his prison clothing torn, and he was barefooted. A sheriff's posse in motor cars raced over every highway about the prison in search (Continued on Page 5) By BUD FISHER Last EDITION Fair.
