ATLANTA, Ga., June 11 Solicitor Dor

for commutation of bis death sentence,
declared that even It the testimony "of
James Conley, the negro factory sweeper,
w ere eliminated, Frank" had been proved
guilty of Mary Phagan's murder by the
testimony of other witnesses at the trial.
Mr. Dorsey sought to show by the rec
ord that Frank had a fair trial; that
the evidence proved that Frank, and not
Conley, committed the murder, and that
the trial judge was sufficiently convinced
of Frank's guilt to refuse him a new
trial. In reviewing the record the so
licitor cited alleged contradictions In
Frank's testimony before the coroner and
his statement at the trial. He said that
the record showed Frank never accused
Conley of connection with the murder
until after the negro had been arrested,
and also that he never told officials that
Ctnley could write, although he knew It
when detectives were seeking to prove
that Conley wrote the "murder notes"
found beside the girl's body. -
Chang of Vfor Not Asked.
Regarding the" first point,' Mr.' Dorsey
said counsel never asked a change of
venue and that there was no antago
nistic sentiment toward Frank prior to
"There were developments in the trial,"
he said, ' "which might have been' calcu
lated to incense the people because of
the harrowing details of the .crime. The
state supreme court, however, ruled upon
this point that there, had been no show
ing by' the defense that there had been
any demonstration in the .court , room
which could have been held to -have de
prived the prisoner of a fair trial."
Judge Roan himself ' declared the' so
licitor said he had a fair trial.
"The record shows," "he continued, "the
demonstration by the crowd outside thi
court room was not heard by the jurors,
and that there was nothing to Justify the
allegation that the crowd In the court
room shouted to the Jury:
" 'Hang Frank or wo'll hang you.' "
The state and federal courts, said . Mr!
Dorsey, held that Frank had not been de
prived of any right in that he was ab
sent from the court room, -at the request
of the trial Judge, when the verdict 'was

Minister I rin t'Jeinener,
Mr. Dorsey waa Interrupted to allow
Rev. C. B. Wllmvr, a local' Episcopalian
minister, to present a petition from At
lanta, ministers urging commutation. Dr.
Wtlmer urged the governor to decide the
case "on Its merits and on Justice, with
out regard to any form of prejudice."
He said commutation was Justified by
the atmosphere of Atlanta before and
during the trial by the manner in which
the evidence against Frank was obtained
and by the reasonable doubt of Frank's
guilt, which, he fcaid, still existed.
Resuming. Dorsey replied briefly to Dr.
Wilmer, declaring he felt the state had
a clear case against Frank without using
the testimony of the negro, James Con
ley. He offered In evidence affidavits
from th sheriff and several aeputles. In
which they denied thrat there was evi
dence of mob violence in the court room.

leans to remember their patriotism
on other darg than national holidays
and to carry the flag of the country
ever in their hearts.
The president made no direct ref
erence to the European war or to
International questions, but he was
applauded wheneyer he . made any
reference to the patriotism of - the
people of the United States. The ex
ercises were held on the south steps
of the Treasury building.. When the
president arrived a large audience
stood and cheered until . he waved
his hands for silence.

Adoo said the meeting was to pay homage
to the Pag "of our country at a time
when If has a deeper significance than
ever bo-fore In the world's history, when
it is the hope of rtvlllzfttlon."
The exercises were attended by Sec
retary Lansing. Secretary Danjels, Sen
ator Simmons an-i many other govern
ment officials. A chorus of Treasury do
parlment employes sang patriotic songs.
Fin si Embodiment of History.-
'for me," said Jhe president, "thi flag
does not express a mere body of senti
ment, it is the embodiment, not of a
sentiment, but of a history, and no man
can rightly serve under that flag who
has not caught some' of the meaning of
that history. '
You do not create the meaning , of a
national life, by any literary exposition
of it. but by the actual dally 'life en
deavors of a great people to do the tasks
of the day and live !up to the ideals of
nopesiy ana righteousness and Just con

tribute Is to those men who have created
this experience. Of these men we feel
that they have shown us the way.. They
have not been afraid to go before. They
