Leo Frank Trial - Week Two
The Leo Frank trial ended its second week 100 years ago today. As the Atlanta trial enters its second week, evidence emerges that National Pencil Company executive Leo Frank killed 13-year-old child laborer Mary Phagan. That afternoon and evening, Newt Lee gave a compelling account of Frank's strange behavior. Jim Conley, a plant janitor, testified that he helped Frank, who stood by, while Frank chatted alone with Mary in the office before Mary died unexpectedly. Then help Frank move her body to the basement. James B. Nevin acknowledged that the case against Frank has been impressive thus far and that Jim Conley's testimony and ability to withstand the defense's innuendoes and statements were critical to the outcome of the case.
The State has suggested that Leo Frank may have murdered Mary Phagan and had the opportunity to do so. Jim Conley made one confession after another during his brutal pre-trial police interrogation. Despite his lowness, reticence and reluctance to confess, as well as the apparent contradictions between his initial testimony, investigators and even some skeptical of Conley's claims were ultimately convinced that they had gotten the truth from him. Accompanied by police and factory officials, when Conley was brought back to the scene of the crime, he recounted and re-enacted the events of April 26, 1913, the day of the murder, step by step, following his experience step by step. The details of the account are so detailed, so consistent with the known facts, so precisely aligned with the evidence that Conley could not have known unless he was actually there, and presented so frankly and honestly, that even skeptics would believe it. On Friday, April 25, James Conley had a conversation with Mr. Frank, where he asked her to come to the pencil factory at 8:30 Saturday morning to work on the second floor. He has been with the pencil company for a little over two years, so it is too early for Mr. Frank to want him to do anything for him.
On Saturday morning, Mr. Frank and the narrator arrived at the door at the same time, and Mr. Frank asked the narrator to watch him. The narrator is always on the first floor watching Mr. Frank while he and a young lady are talking on the second floor. At Thanksgiving, a tall lady arrives, and the narrator becomes Mr. Frank downstairs, watching in the doorway. Last year, April 26, 1912, when a lady came, the narrator was told to lock the door and push with his foot so they would know it was her. When the lady came, he stomped his foot and the narrator went to lock the door. On Thanksgiving Day 1912, the narrator is told to blow the whistle and open the door.
The narrator heard Mr. Frank whistle and unlock the door. He was standing at the top of the stairs with a long rope in his hand and was shaking from everything. He asked the narrator if he had just seen the little girl passing by, and the narrator said he had. The narrator then hits the little girl, who falls and hits her head on something. The narrator is not as resistant as the other men, because they had seen Frank two or three times before Thanksgiving in the office, the lady sitting in a chair covered up to the body, and him kneeling on the ground with his hands in the master.

The most important detail in this passage is that before the narrator left the factory at 530 on Friday, the factory stopped and beat them as they walked out.

Prior to Mr. Darley's departure, Mr. Holloway and the peg-legged Negro went upstairs and returned. The officers were then told that Mr. Quinn had entered, but this was untrue. The narrator erred because a woman wearing green did ascend before Mr. Darley descended. Mr. Holloway was followed by Mr. Quinn in ascending. The speaker's errors are the most significant details in this text. They erred when they told the police that Miss Monteen Stover arrived after Mr. Quinn.
Additionally, they erred when they informed Mr. Black, Mr. Scott, and Miss Maddie Smith that they were the only ones to go up at all.

Additionally, the narrator has visited Mr. Dorsey's office three times, and he has spoken with the narrator seven times in order to clarify his testimony.
The narrator also heard the stamping and scream before the door was locked. They heard the stamping and scream as they descended to unlock it. Mr. Frank on both that day and Thanksgiving Day, demonstrated how to lock the door. Each door was unlocked when they descended to leave. When a young woman would eventually be up there to chat, Mr. Frank instructed them not to let Mr. Darley see them around the door so they could keep an eye out for her.
During the hours of ten and ten thirty, Mr. Frank visited Montagues and stayed for about an hour. Why the narrator was to meet him at Nelson and Forsyth Street was not disclosed to the police. The narrator received the signal from Mr. Frank to stamp and whistle on Thanksgiving Day, and he reiterated it that day. About five minutes had passed since they arrived home from Montague's when the woman in the green dress stood up.
The peg-legged black man left the upper level and descended with Mr. Holloway. Five to ten minutes after Mr. Holloway, Darley also descended. Before Montana Stower and Mary Phagan entered, Mr. Quinn and the woman in the green dress descended from the ceiling, followed by Mr. Holloway. The narrator is certain that only Mary Phagan entered after Mr. Quinn. They entered and exited almost simultaneously. Mrs. Barrett, Corinthia Hall, Hattie Hall, Alonzo Mann, Emma Clark, or Mrs. White didn't enter there at any point that day, according to the narrator. The narrator spent the entire time sitting on the box and only got up twice to make water. The narrator heard the scream before they fell asleep, and Miss Montane Stower came down. The narrator then explained to Mr. Starnes and Mr. Campbell about a person who ran back on tiptoes and woke them up stamping. The narrator then informed Mr. Dorsey, Mr. Starnes, and Campbell of Mr. Frank's anxious and trembling position at the top of the stairs. Mr. Frank was holding that cord when the narrator reached the top of the stairs.
The narrator isn't sure when they first came clean about Mr. Frank hitting the young girl. When they revealed to Black and Scott that they were being truthful, they omitted to mention that Mr. Frank had struck the young girl. Returning to the stairs, the narrator discovered the cord around the victim's neck. It was four minutes to one when they turned to face the time. Then, after going back to get some striped bedtick, the narrator spread it out, rolled the young girl in it, and tied it.
They bound the cloth around her before placing her inside it. The narrator gave it their all. The narrator wrote four notes before leaving the factory as opposed to just two, which is one of the text's most crucial details. On white and green pieces of paper, the narrator also wrote three notes, which Mr. Leo Frank folded up as if he wasn't going to use them. Additionally, because Scott and Black had been removed from the case, the narrator didn't inform them of the body's burning. Additionally, because Scott and Black had been removed from the case, the narrator didn't inform them of the body's burning. Additionally, because someone had taken Scott and Black off the case, the narrator didn't inform them of the body's burning. The next most crucial information in this piece is that the narrator does not recall telling the officers that Mr. Frank had told him he was going to send those notes to his family up north if they had made it down there, and that he was going to write to his mother and tell her that he was an honorable black man. On Monday, the narrator avoided reading any newspapers about the crime and instead washed his shirt in the metal room around 01:30 or 02:00 in response to Mr. Frank's explanation of where he wanted to meet him.
The two white men who approached Mr. Frank in his office that day and a man by the name of Mincy at the intersection of Carter and Electric Avenue were not observed by the narrator. The narrator failed to inform Harley Branch that Mary Phagan had been murdered in the second-floor bathroom or that the body was stiff when they returned. Miss Carson, Miss Mary Pierk, Mr. Herbert Schiff, Miss Small, or Miss Fuss were not informed of Mr. Frank's innocence by the narrator. They also don't recall telling Miss Small, Miss Small, or Miss Fuss that they believed Mr. Frank was as pure as an angel in heaven.

The narrator was taken by police to the jail and to Mr. Frank's door, but he never got a chance to see him there. The narrator last encountered Mr. Frank in the station house before their conversation. He took the narrator's pencil and instructed them to rub out the word "Negro.".
After Mr. Frank returned from the basement, they observed Mary Phagan's pocketbook or mesh bag in his office. The narrator and Mr. Scott spoke for about three and a half hours. Mr. Frank warned the narrator on a Thursday that if they caught him, he would be expelled from this place. Before meeting Mincy at the station house in Mr. Lanford's office, the narrator had never seen him before. Mr. Frank used to write the word "luxury" for the narrator after he was released from prison because he had known for a full year that he could write.
The most significant information in this passage is that Leo Frank referred to Conley's testimony as "the most vile and amazing pack of lies ever conceived in the perverted brain of a wicked human being.". Conley provided a wealth of new information about Leo Frank's conversations with young women, admitted that he had been occasionally confused, and admitted to lying in his first two statements to protect both himself and Frank.
Conley's new haircut and fresh outfit were described at one point by Luther Rosser, the attorney for Frank, as having been "put on him so the jury could see him like a dressed up nigger possibly inflaming racial feelings among the all white jury." The most crucial information in this text is that Conley was an uneducated, illiterate man who refused to back down from his most damning accusations against Leo Frank, even after being cross-examined for more than 13 hours by the best lawyers money could buy.
In his testimony, he claimed that Frank told him he wanted to be with a young girl, hit her too hard, causing her to fall and hit her head against something, and that she as a result was injured. Frank had a thin, light physique and the implication that he might strike a girl and never imagine the blow could seriously harm her, but later medical testimony would show no physical abnormalities in him. Helen Ferguson testified that Frank refused to give Mary's pay to Mary's friend who had offered to take it to her the day before the murder, indicating that Frank wanted to make sure Mary would come to him personally in his office the following day. On Friday, April 25, at around 7:00 p.m., the narrator approached Mr. Frank and requested Mary Phagan's money.
Mr. The narrator turned around and walked out after Frank said he couldn't let him have it. Some members of the office staff were present when the narrator requested Mary's money, but they can't recall their names. Doctor Henry F. went after Conley. With additional autopsy evidence showing that the murder had occurred around noon on April 26, Harris was called back to the witness stand. The only murderers who could have been Frank o,r were as Dr. Harris' words made abundantly clear, were they and not Newt Lee. Conley and the bloody shirt discovered in Newt Lee's garbage can.
C. B. Dalton's testimony corroborated Conley's claim that he had been watching for Frank during his trysts with young girls. Dalton had been to the office of Leo M. Frank two or three times and the National Pencil Company three, four, or five times. Conley and the night watchman were there when he arrived, but Conley was not there. Though he didn't recognize them, he observed some parties in the office.
Conley had been there a few times on Saturday nights and once this year. When he descended the ladder with Miss Daisy Hopkins, he noticed Conley sitting there at the front door. In the cellar, he observed an old cot and a stretcher. Ten years ago, the narrator moved to Atlanta, and she hasn't left the city for more than a week at a time. Between September and December, they observed a Negro night watchman there and saw Mr. Frank around 2:00 in the afternoon. They have walked home from the factory with Miss Smith and Miss Laura Atkins after 20 years of residing in Walton County. They gave Jim Conley a few quarters and observed Mr. Frank drinking beer, Coca-Cola, lemonade, and lime in his office during the day. The first cousin of John Dalton and the narrator is Andrew Dalton. The narrator is the Dalton who admitted to stealing in Walton County in 1894 and went to the chain gang. Others made payments. How long they were in service is unknown to the narrator.
The most crucial information in this passage is that Dalton was charged with corn theft and put on trial in Gwinnett County for aiding in the theft of a cotton bale. When he got into a fight with a hammer and plow stock in 1899, he and the two Dalton boys were both intoxicated. In Gwinnett County, he was charged with aiding in the theft of a bale of cotton and was also accused of stealing corn, but he was exonerated.
Pinkerton agent Harry Scott was one of many witnesses called or asked to testify again in order to further explain statements made earlier in the trial. According to Harry Scott's account, Conley was keeping an eye out for Frank, who, in accordance with the prosecution's theory, was waiting to attack Mary Phagan, at the bottom of the stairs close to the front door. He provided the police with that information but never asked Frank or any other employee of the pencil factory if Conley could write. He was present when Conley gave his testimony on May 18. The most crucial information in this passage is that Conley, a tall, long-haired black man, wrote a written statement on May 18.
Conley began writing the words slowly on May 18 after receiving a dictation from the author. He was smoking a cigarette while chewing his lips when he was brought before Mrs. White. He vehemently denied both being at the factory and being involved in Mary Phagan's murder. On May 24, he made a second, written statement. On that day, he was carried into Mr. Dorsey's office where they discussed the statement. To everything in the statement, he gave his word. We went there together after he sent for Mr. Black.
We spent about three hours asking him very probing questions. We saw him again on May 27 in Chief Lanford's office, and on May 25 he repeated the narrative he had provided in his May 24 statement. Chief Lanford and the author made an effort to convince Frank that he would not have written those notes on Friday on May 28. Frank said he had spoken the truth and would not add anything. On May 28, Chief Lanford and the author interrogated him for five or six hours in an effort to clarify a few of the outlandish claims he had made. Then, on May 28, Defendants Exhibit 38, Frank made a lengthy statement in which it was stated that his prior statement could not be accepted because it showed deliberation. Montane Stover, Mary Phagan, or Lemme Quinn Conley were never mentioned in any of his conversations with them. Around 11:30 on Tuesday, Frank was taken into custody. Defendants Exhibit 39 is Conley's final statement, which was made on May 29. He asserted that he had never observed the small mesh bag, the parasol, or Frank's stumbling as he exited the elevator on the street level and struck him. The author has not spoken with or seen Conley since that time. He denied knowing anything about the feces that were down in the elevator shaft in the basement, and he never claimed to have gone there himself between the time he first arrived at the factory and went to Montagues.
The most crucial information in this text is that the man never claimed that he believed the young girl's name was Mary Perkins, that he saw the young girl's dead body, that he heard a woman scream, that he did not hear any stamping, that he held a cord in his hand at the top of the stairs, that he appeared odd around his eyes or that his face was red, that he returned there and discovered the young girl with a rope around her neck and a
and a piece of underclothing, or that he went back to Mr Frank and told him the girl was dead, or that he wrapped her in a piece of cloth.
The most crucial information in this passage relates to the conversation Mr. Frank had with Conley on Tuesday following the murder, during which Mr. Frank claimed that there wouldn't have been any issues if Conley had returned on Saturday and followed his instructions. Conley received a paper and a pencil from the narrator on May 18 on a Sunday at Chief Lanford's office. Conley claimed he couldn't write, but the narrator persuaded him otherwise, and he went on to write Redirect Examination. The narrator learned that Conley could write from sources entirely unrelated to the pencil company, with whom they had first spoken about Mrs. White's claim that she had seen a black person there.
The narrator also learned who the pencil company first spoke with about Mrs. White's claim that she saw a black person there from outside sources wholly unrelated to the pencil company. The conversations the author had with Black, Chief Lanford, and Bass Rosser soon after April 28 are the most crucial details in this text. Conley finished speaking, and Chief Beavers, Lanford, and Bass Rosser went to the jail with him to see the sheriff. On Saturday, May 3, the author last saw Frank. Conley had altered his story several times to protect himself and Frank, who had offered to help him flee town if he kept quiet, according to Scott's Grilling, which the defense used to their advantage. Leo Frank took the stand, and as he did so, he made a startling confession that neither the defense nor anyone else in Atlanta was prepared for.
