TRIAL FAIR ATLANTA, Ga., June 11 Solicitor Dor sey, arguing today before Governor, 8la- tonJkglnsCXeO Mi. Frnk' filBU'Tf""" 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 the trial. "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 returned. The courts also held,: he said, that alle gations of mob violence were not sus tained. '. 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. Negro Lynched by Mob at Toccoa Ga.
