From The Silent and the Damned (by Seltz)
Beaten unconscious, raped, and when she came to and started resisting again, strangled to death by her vile boss, Leo Frank, who then urinated on her body.
The Big New York Jews rallied behind him and immediately founded the ADL, but a Georgia “mob” (actually composed of leading and distinguished citizens, including the County Sheriff, the Speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives and a former GOVERNOR!) dragged the pedophile Jew out of prison and strung him up – an amazing story of White persistence and courage!
The Leo Frank case shows why the infamous ADL ever was set up – in shocked reaction to the failure of their clumsy bribes and lies to prevent a guilty verdict by a jury against Leo Frank.
The ADL’s head since 1987, the closet homosexual Abraham Foxman, whom foolish Poles had hidden from the National Socialist Germans, lying to the Reich that he was just a Polish Catholic boy.
The Jewish Big Money in New York realized their heavy-handed tactics of bribery and overt lies had botched and thus failed to prevent the rescue of Leo Frank, the head of B’nai B’rith in Atlanta, Georgia. The top New York Jews grasped that they needed henceforth a much more sophisticated legal and PR operation so that AT LEAST FUTURE GUILTY JEWS COULD ESCAPE JUSTICE. And this was the ADL, founded in October 1913, A DIRECT RESULT OF THE MARY PHAGAN-LEO FRANK CASE!
A month after the guilty verdict and death sentence on Leo Frank, the “ADL” was formed by the Jewish Freemasonic lodge B’nai B’rith (“Sons of the Covenant”).
Paragraphs two and three states that “prejudice and discrimination” against Jews had “manifest[ed] itself recently in an attempt to influence courts of law.” This was a clear reference to the Leo Frank guilty verdict a few weeks earlier. Subsequent paragraphs insolently advocate that Jews use the ADL themselves to influence the theater, newspapers and magazines when they criticize “(“defame”) Jews.
Here is an accurate depiction of the mission of the ADL on the WN-orientd Metapedia: http://en.metapedia.org/wiki/ADL_of_B’nai_B’rith
Wikipedia’s article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Defamation_League) states baldly:
[The founder, German Jew immigrant Sigmund] Livingston established the ADL in direct response to the 1913 trial of Leo Frank, a Jewish factory manager and B’nai B’rith chapter president in Georgia, who was convicted of murdering Mary Phagan, a 13 year old female employee.
According to Foxman, the ADL’s budget is between $50 million and $60 million, depending on how grants are computed. Half of the funds raised come from non-Jewish corporate sponsors. The organization boasts a staff of 350 people in 30 regional offices around the country. It also staffs offices in Jerusalem and Moscow and has representatives in Vienna and Rome.
The Jewish-born Brother Nathanael did a good video on the ADL and its agenda against White America:
The books is simply full of inaccuracies, outright lies and omissions of essential facts. This review on Amazon says it all: http://www.amazon.com/review/RRVQOXEWEOBVU/
Given how many decades Leonard Dinnerstein spent studying this case (nearly half a century), it seems almost incomprehensible the sheer number of conspicuous errors, misquotes, mistakes, fabrications, misrepresentations, frauds, deception, falsificications & shameless omissions made in every edition of his book on the Leo Frank Case from 1968 all the way through to 2008. Going even further back, & closely examining Dinnerstein’s 1966 PhD dissertation, reveals early-on his central thesis is based upon paranoid pathological obsessions with accusing *non-existent* widespread anti-Semitism, as the primary reason Leo Frank was indicted & convicted. Dinnerstein believes the Leo Frank conviction was an anti-Semitic outburst & episode, that erupted from “anti-Semitic Southern culture”, despite the consensus among Jewish & Gentile historians that anti-Semitism was virtually non-existent in the South. Moreover, given the fact Jews were considered an integral part of European-American culture in the South, meant that Leo Frank being a German-Jew more likely helped him than hurt him (see: The Jew Accused: Three Anti-Semitic Affairs 1894-1915, Lindemann, 1992).
JdN: The evidence against Leo Frank, including most of all his own infuriating and suspicious behavior before and during the trial, was so overwhelming that a Deep South jury — in a city which had had a huge race riot just seven years earlier — see below — over the issue of Blacks raping White women — nevertheless took the word of the Black janitor Jim Conley over that of the “White” Jew Leo Frank.
Jim Conley was a disreputable person and incompetent employee who could not even run the freight elevator correctly in the pencil factory and was thus switched to janitorial work. The all-White jury nevertheless believed him, despite knowing via the newspapers and Leo Frank’s lawyers about of his many arrests and his four weeks on a chain gang for various crimes such as fighting and drunkenness. There was certainly NO sympathy on the part of the Atlanta jury for the ne’er-do-well Black criminal Conley.
Conly went on after the Leo Frank trial to be arrested, convicted and then serve 15 years for burglarizing a liquor store, surviving, btw, a shotgun blast from the store owner.
The Leo Frank case was the first instance EVER in the then 300-year history of the American South of a “White” man being convicted of murder on the word of a Black man. That is how strong the evidence against Leo Frank was. It was a case of the EVIDENCE, which was furnished by 1) Jim Conley, 2) the Atlanta police, 3) 19 female employees at the National Pencil Factory, and 4) Leo Frank himself, that earned him his guilty verdict and death sentence.And every level of the judicial system up to and including the United States Supreme Court (see below) rejected Leo Frank’s appeals.
Five witnesses testify that Frank constantly sexually harassed Mary Phagan (from page 239, American State Trials, volume X (1918) by John Lawson)
Dinnerstein goes to unbelievable lengths in his book to obfuscate the 1,800 pages of legal files that survived into the 21st century from the Georgia Supreme Court, records that showed to what criminal extent Leo Frank’s friends & legal defense team (including, incredibly, Governor John Marshall Slaton)
Governor Slaton and his wife; Slaton scandalously was a law partner of Leo Frank’s defense lawyer and later commuted his death sentence to life.
were willing to go, tricking witnesses into: perjuring themselves, signing false affidavits, & retracting their trial testimony. After omitting all the incriminating evidence against Leo Frank from his book, Dinnerstein then claims Leo Frank was innocent, despite the fact that every level of the United States legal system from 1913 to 1986, did not disturb the guilty verdict of the trial jury. Moreover, if the presiding judge Leonard Strickland Roan had any doubts about Leo Frank’s guilt,
Judge Leonard Strickland Roan
he could have given him a new trial when the defense petitioned him on more than 100 grounds. In fact, nothing in the Defense team’s petitions for a new trial or appeals, ever mentions even a single incident of anti-Semitism, making most of Dinnerstein’s manufactured claims about anti-Semitic conspiracies, nothing more than maudlin & tawdry hatecrime hoaxes.
The question that arises concerning the May 24, 1913 indictment rendered against Leo Frank: What compelled 21 grand jurors (with several Jewish members amongst them) to vote unanimously against Leo Frank (when only 12 votes were needed to indict), was it the compelling facts, testimony & evidence presented to them, or some kind of anti-Semitic blood-libel conspiracies?
We can’t answer this question from Dinnerstein’s overly simplistic book, because he intentionally obfuscates & omits nearly the entire Leo Frank Trial Brief of Evidence (1913) & Coroner’s Inquest Testimony.
Dinnerstein also doesn’t tell his readers who testified during the Grand Jury hearings, so people have no choice but to do their own research, to find out for themselves & then look back in the records, to see what these particular witnesses testified about at the Coroner’s Inquest before the Grand Jury & then later after the Grand Jury, what these same witnesses testified during the Leo Frank Trial.
Let me explain in detail why this book is quackery at its finest:
Dinnerstein uses his agitprop hate-propaganda book to invoke the age-old racist blood-libel canards against Whites, this time against European-American Southerners, indicting them all as part of a vast anti-Semitic conspiracy to indict & convict Leo Frank “without evidence”, but with rumors and hearsay. Moreover, Dinnerstein accuses the “unscrupulous” & “ambitious” prosecutor, the solicitor general Hugh Dorsey (1871 – 1948),
of knowingly playing along with the public in clamoring to “frame” & thus ostensibly committing anti-Semitic murder of an “innocent” Jew, for the long term purpose of advancing his own political career in Atlanta. Dinnerstein is suggesting that one of Georgia’s most progressive statesmen, a man who openly advocated against vigilante lynching (when it was dangerous & politically unpopular to do so), knowingly murdered an innocent Jew, as a stepping stone to become Governor.
What Dinnerstein failed to mention is Hugh Dorsey became close friends & roommates with the famous Jewish-American lawyer Henry Alexander during law school while they were students, and that after graduation Dorsey had numerous Jewish law partners & associates he worked with throughout the course of his life.
The charge of anti-Semitism & anti-Semite has become the racial epithet of spineless cowards, who use it as a smear to stifle open discuss about political, legal, or social issues concerning Jews.
Dinnerstein has spent his entire academic career writing about the evils of anti-Jewish racism, but has spewed his own disgusting blood-libel racism against European-Americans for over 40 years in his edition after edition of the Leo Frank Case (1968 to 2008). There seems to an infinite supply of people who denounce anti-Jewish racism, but usually when you scratch the surface of these people, underneath you find out that deep down, these denouncers themselves are prejudiced, racist & bigoted against others. Dinnerstein is no exception & hides his own racism behind the tribal obsession with blame.
Here is the end of the B’nai B’rith proclamation of October 1913, with a long list of Jewish bigwigs. Before the names begin the author states piously:
“No effort will be made by this organization to shield any malefactor.” But that was exactly the purpose — to shield Leo Frank!
The behavior of Leo Frank and then of his Jewish supporters illustrates perfectly the real teachings of the vile Talmud, which overtly condones 1) raping goy kids, and 2) lying under oath, as per the Kol Nidre ceremony!
“A Jew is permitted to rape, cheat and perjure himself [give false testimony under oath in court]; but he must take care that he is not found out, so that Israel [the Jewish people] may not suffer.” – Schulchan Aruch, Jore Dia.
Two of the many female employees who testified against Leo Frank said they saw Frank enter the women’s dressing room at the factory to consort with a female co-worker who then testified for Frank.
“To communicate anything to a goy about our religious relations would be equal to the killing of all Jews, for if they knew what we teach about them they would kill us openly.” - Libbre David 37.
“The Jews are human beings , but the nations of the world are not human beings but beasts.”-Baba Mecia 114, 6 [i.e.: 114b].
“Yahweh created the non-Jew in human form so that the Jew would not have to be served by beasts. The non-Jew is consequently an animal in human form, and commanded to serve the Jew day and night.” - Midrasch Talpioth, p225-L.
“A Gentile girl who is three years old can be violated.”- Aboda Sarah 37a.
“A Jew may do to a non-Jewess whatever he can. He may treat her as he treats a piece of meat.” - Hadarine, 20, B; Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 348.
During the Leo Frank murder trial, 19 female employees at the 170-employee plant stepped forward and testified under oath that Leo Frank had made lascivious and harassing remarks to them, and even sauntered repeatedly into the women’s dressing room.
“When a Jew murders a Gentile (“Cuthean”), there will be no death penalty.” – Sanhedrin 57a .
Non-Jewish Children are subhumans. – Yebamoth 98a.
Gentile girls are in a state of niddah (filth) from birth. – Abodah Zarah 36b
A 1999 pro-Frank musical, “Parade,” blames “Southern bigotry” for the death of Saint Leo the Innocent ;-). The play’s name, “Parade,” comes from the fact that Leo Frank raped and killed Mary Phagan on Confederate Memorial Day, when for decades a major parade in honor of the Confederate dead was held throughout the South.
Leo Frank’s own wife, Lucille Selig-Cohen, hardly an antisemite, refused to visit him for two weeks after his arrest, and in her will refused to be buried to next her husband, the supposedly “innocent victim of antisemitism.” His gravestone is in Queens, NYC, and says “Beloved Husband” — but there is no “Beloved Wife” headstone for her! She is buried between her parents in Marietta, Georgia.
–April 17, 1884: Leo Max Frank is born in Cuero, Texas.
–June 1, 1899: Mary Ann Phagan is born in Florence, Alabama (not Marietta, Georgia: http://benfranklinfollies.com/newt-reminded-me-of-mary-phagan/).
–April 26, 1913 (a Saturday): Frank, manager of the National Pencil Factory in Atlanta, and an infamous sexual harasser of his female pencil-factory employees, knocks his 13-year-old, 4-foot-11 factory worker Mary Ann Phagan unconscious with a punch to the right temple and a head-slam into a lathe, and then rapes her (vaginally and possibly anally). When Mary Phagan comes to during the rape, Frank strangles her to death with a 7-foot cord. The girl had come in to pick up her meager pay before heading for the Confederate Memorial Day parade.
From the book The Silent and the Damned (Seltz)
–April 29, 1913 (a Tuesday) morning: Mary Phagan is buried; her mother was overcome with grief several times during the ceremonies. Because of Black crime in the city, public suspicion fell mainly on the Black watchman, Newt Lee, who turned out to be completely innocent.
Atlanta Constitution’s April 30, 1913 funeral report
–April 29, 1913 (that same afternoon) After factory superintendent Leo Frank had been questioned by Atlanta police already on Sunday, the day after the murder, at noontime, just after the Phagan funeral had ended, he was pickled up at his office in the factory brought in once again and underwent more detailed questioning.
His answers and behavior aroused further suspicion, and Leo Frank was arrested and incarcerated. The day of Mary’s funeral was the last day of his freedom.

–April 30, 1913 (a Wednesday) George Epps, a 15-year-old friend of Mary Phagan, testified that Phagan was afraid of Frank because he had winked at her, flirted with her and had made inappropriate sexual advances toward her. Watchman Newt Lee told police that Frank was nervous the day of the murder (Saturday) and had telephoned to see if everything was OK at the factory – not his usual practice.
–May 24, 1913: Frank is indicted unanimously by a grand jury and all three Jewish members also sign the indictment, which was not necessary, but they do it to emphasize their desire that he be tried for murder. Wikipedia:
“On May 24, 1913, a murder indictment was returned against Frank by a grand jury. The grand jury included five Jews [but two were excused] and historian Albert Lindemann [renowned Jewish professor at the University of Californa at Santa Barbara] suggests “They were persuaded by the concrete evidence that [prosecutor] Dorsey presented.”
–August 1913: the New York Times publishes twenty-five articles claiming Frank is 1) an innocent victim of Southern bigotry and antisemitism and 2) that a black employee did it.
–August 26, 1913: Frank is found guilty of murder by the jury and is sentenced to hang.
Screenshot from a pro-Frank movie
–October 1913: the ADL (“Anti-Defamation Leauge”) is formed to defame honest prosecutors like Dorsey and pressure the courts and media more effectively in the future into letting future Jewish criminals off ( called euphemistically “fighting antisemitic discrimination.”)
–June 21, 1915: Governor John Slaton (1911-1915), who had formed a law firm, “Rosser, Brandon, Slaton and Phillips” in July, 1913, just weeks before the Leo Frank Trial began on July 28, 1913, making him a law partner of Luther Rosser, Leo Frank’s defense attorney [!], commutes Frank’s death sentence to life in prison with just five days left in his governorship, after Georgia district courts, the Georgia Supreme Court and the US Supreme Court had all rejected Leo Frank’s expensive legal appeals using all-star lawyers.
Atlanta City Hall in 1913
–August 16, 1915: After two months of meticulous planning, some of the most distinguished citizens of Georgia (incl. a former governor, sheriffs, judges and the Speaker of the Georgia House of Representatives) cut the phone wires and drain the gas from vehicles at the Milledgeville State Prison, and five men go in with guns drawn at 10 p.m., seize Frank by both legs, arms and the hair, and drive him to Marietta, Ga., where Mary had once lived, and in the early morning hours of August 17, 1915, he is hanged, facing Mary’s house.
Sheriff George Swanson of Cobb County (north of Atlanta) supervised the entire seizure and lynching of Frank before “new evidence” by bribed “witnesses” could overturn the guilty verdict and lead to Frank’s released. NYC detective William Burns was passing envelopes with money around Atlanta to get “witnesses” to say a black employee did it.
In 1986, the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles, under continuing pressure from the ADL and other Jewish groups, granted Leo Frank a posthumous pardon, but not on the grounds that they thought him innocent. The technical reason given was that his lynching had deprived him of his right to further appeal. This reasoning was specious as Frank had lost every appeal at the county, state and federal level all the way up to the United States Supreme Court.
The US Supreme Court sat in this chamber in the US Capitol from 1860-1935, and on April 19, 1915 confirmed the guilt and death sentence of Leo Frank, which the Georgia Supreme Court had already confirmed on June 6, 1914.
A pardon for Leo Frank on any grounds is illegal. As Mary Phagan’s grand-niece wrote in her book, The Murder of Little Mary Phagan, which after exhaustive, neutral and massive research confirmed the guilt of Leo Frank (http://www.jrbooksonline.com/HTML-docs/mary_phagan.htm), a pardon for any deceased person violates Georgia law, and she concludes (on page 290):
“Could someone at this late date apply for a divorce on behalf of Leo Frank? The blood of a little girl cries out from the ground for justice. I pray the sun will never rise to shine upon that day in Georgia when we shall have so blinded ourselves to the records, to the evidence, to the judgments of the court, and the judgment of the people, as to rub out, change, and reverse the judgment of the courts that has stood for seventy years! God forbid!”
The reason WHY Frank finally HAD to be lynched was that the Jews were spreading money around Atlanta to get “new witnesses” to step forward, blame/frame someone else and get Leo Frank a new trial with a different judge and then have him found not guilty. This is the real reason why those man had to act when and as they did. Their goal was to ensure justice, not thwart it.
Mary Ann Phagan was born in Colbert County, Alabama, an 80% White county in northern Alabama (where 19 years before the famous Helen Keller also had been born, the daughter, btw, of a Confederate captain). Mary grew up in a family of tenant farmers that had farmed in Alabama and Georgia for generations. Her father, William Joshua Phagan, had died two years before she was killed.
Alabama white tenant farm family in 1900
After her father died, Phagan’s mother moved her family to East Point, Georgia, where she opened a boarding house. The children took jobs in the local mills. Phagan left school at the age of ten to work part-time in a textile mill.
In 1911, a paper manufacturing plant owned by Sigmund Montag, Jewish treasurer of the National Pencil Company, hired her. In 1912 her mother Frances Phagan married John William Coleman, and she and the children moved into the city. Phagan took a job with the National Pencil Company in the spring of 1912, where she ran a knurling machine that inserted rubber erasers into pencils’ metal bands.
Alphin writes that wages were low for everyone—ten to fifteen cents an hour, one-third of the average wage in the North [thank you, Jew-caused Civil War], and most of the production-line workers were teenagers, an issue that fueled resentment against the factory owners. Mary Phagan earned $4.05 per week or 7 and 4/11 cents an hour, for 55 hours. Leo Frank, her boss who raped and strangled her 100 years ago, earned $150.00 per month, plus a portion of the profits. At the time, industrialists were regularly attacked in print by The Atlanta Georgian newspaper.
By the age of thirteen, Mary Phagan was already a four-year veteran of the workforce, having had two other factory jobs before starting work at the pencil factory. She was a beautiful girl, and the search for her murderer was later to reveal more than one boy who had been smitten by her azure eyes and precocious figure.
She was only 4 feet 11 inches (150 cm) tall, but still might have been able to pass for being as old as eighteen. Her family were country people who had moved to the city, known as “crackers” in local parlance.
Her family lived in Cobb County near where the Big Chicken restaurant is today. They moved to Atlanta, to the Bellwood neighborhood, which was off Bankhead Highway, just west of downtown. She was only a 10-minute trolley ride from her job at the pencil factory. (This building has been torn down. The National Pencil Company became hated as a result of the murder by the plant’s manager and the years of scandalous attempts to get him off, and pencil sales declined. The Sam Nunn Federal Building is now located here.)
The murder of Mary Phagan shocked a city already reeling from crime, violence, and desperate working conditions. Within the decade prior to the murder, Atlanta had already experienced a serious White-Black race riot just even years before, and the capital of Georgia recorded the highest arrest rate of any major city in the country.
Child labor laws were widely ignored and children worked for as little as 22 cents a week. The Mary Phagan murder unleashed a pent-up frustration with the pathological conditions of the city. Ten thousand mourners lined up to view Phagan’s body and an angry citizenry demanded that the young girl’s murder be avenged.
White children working on a textile machine. At the Museum of Work in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, we learn that the textile factory temperature was kept at ONE HUNDRED THIRTY DEGREES AND HUMID to make thread that would not fray. Occasionally, children’s arms would be torn off by a spinning machine, and then the child would be fired. In the minutes of a meeting of the Samuel Slater Club (a Rhode Island association of factory owners), the Catholic Church was praised for keeping workers “docile” and telling them that joining a union would make them communists.
The rabbi at the synagogue Frank attended, David Marx, took a train to New York City about a week after the conviction to meet with editors of The New York Times and with Louis Marshall, president of the American Jewish Committee. By early 1914, Marshall and Adolph Ochs, the publisher of the Times, decided to put their full forces to work for Frank. The Times’ behavior in the Frank case was stunning. They lost all objectivity. They published dozens of stories, most of them quoting sources only from the defense camp, and they ran six or seven major editorials a month attacking the prosecution.
Adolf Ochs and his own daughter, Iphigenia, in 1902- He would show no concern for the “shiksa” Mary Ann Phagan.
The president of the American Jewish Committee, New York attorney Louis Marshall (oil portrait below left), was hesitant at first about having that organization champion openly the cause of an already convicted Jewish felon. But Marshall agreed to represent Frank before the U.S. Supreme Court, where, despite Marshall being called in the press a “renowned constitutional scholar,” Frank’s guilty verdict was confirmed.
Hatred for Leo Frank came easily for many in Georgia. Frank was a northerner, a “Yankee,” AND a Jew, whereas Mary Phagan was (as one local man said) “our folks.” The New York Jew became, in the words of historian John Higham, “a symbol of the northern capitalist exploiting southern womanhood.” The fact that the rape and murder occurred in the very factory where the young Mary slaved for long hours to receive pitiful wages made the crime seem even more reprehensible.
(Her machine was also located directly next to the unisex bathroom. Everyone at the factory thus knew her by virtue of using that bathroom, including Leo Frank, a coffee guzzler.)
Fannie Coleman, the remarried mother of Mary, testified as the prosecution’s first witness at the Leo Frank trial in August 1913. She told jurors that her daughter rose about 11:00 on Saturday, had a breakfast of cabbage and bread, and left home for the pencil factory “about a quarter to 12:00.” The witness hid her tears behind a large palm-leaf fan as she identified the blood-stained clothes worn by Mary on the day she last saw her.
The jury could not ignore that a Yankee (northern) Jew had murdered a White, Christian, Southern girl on Confederate Memorial Day, a major Southern holiday (which actually predates and inspired the US federal Memorial Day).
In 1913, the War Between the States had ended 48 years before, and there were still many aged veterans.
A photograph of her lavender dress, heavily spattered with her blood and dirt from her body having been dragged along the floor to the basement near an elevator.
Mary was on her way to a parade for Confederate Memorial Day, and was dressed nicely.) One sees also her blue hat with red flowers, shoes, a torn stocking with a hole in it, a garter belt and two hair ribbons (top right), plus, ominously, the seven-foot cord (top left) used to strangle her and a loop made for the strangulation. The autopsy suggests she was raped /penetrated — without ejaculation — by some object as she still lay dying, since her tissues there were swollen. (Swelling from an injury cannot happen after death, when blood flow ends.) Frank may have penetrated her with some object as he slowly strangled her….. The general public, some of which sat in the courtroom, began to seethe. Then the detail came out that the undershirt she was wearing had been cut open over the left breast, and both her dress and undershirt were soaked not just her blood but also urine, suggesting Frank, in a final act of hatred, had urinated on his dead victim.
The jewish psychopath wanted “vengeance” on his female goy for refusing to render unto her master-race boss the sexual services due to him “on demand” as one of the Chosen. From this we can see that the Jews clearly do believe in the “values” in the Talmud, because they act on them daily in ways large and small. A thirst for vengeance after demands are refused is a hallmark of the psychopath: http://www.democratic-republicans.us/solutreanism/important-info/psychopaths-in-power
Fifteen-year-old George Epps followed Mary’s bereaved mother, Fanny Coleman, to the stand. Epps testified that on the day of the murder he rode the streetcar with Mary to a stop near the pencil factory, where she disembarked at 12:07, heading in for her pay but unknowingly also to her death.
A reconstruction of the terrible events :
At 11:45 am that Saturday Mary Phagan stepped onto the English Avenue trolley (street car) in Atlanta in her Bellwood section of Atlanta. At 11:59 am to noon, she stepped off the trolley.
She walked to the National Pencil Company, a two-minute walk. (The cheap Jews had not even changed the factory building’s former name, the Venable Hotel.)
At 12:03 pm she arrived in Leo Frank’s second-floor office to pick up her pay. She has about five minutes to live.
She asked Frank for her pay envelope and if “the metal” had arrived yet. (This meant the metal bands that attach the erasers to the pencil. She had been forced to work only part-time due to the metal not having been properly delivered, and her meager pay was now even smaller. Frank made 45 times as much money as Mary.)
Leo Frank may have then said: “I don’t know. Let’s go look in the metal room.”
Frank and his 13-year-old employee walk to the metal room at the rear of the factory, and Frank makes small talk.
Once in the metal room, Leo Frank likely then told Mary in some abrupt, rapid, unpersuasive or pushy way that he wanted or he expected sex with her (perhaps adding the classic warning that she would lose otherwise her job).

Mary Ann Phagan obviously rejected his advances and tried to leave. But Frank, a man and at 5-foot-7 eight inches taller, blocked the girl. A verbal altercation quickly led to a physical altercation.
He must have slugged her right temple with huge force, based on the terrible bruise seen on the autopsy photo.
She reeled. Then he slammed the back of her head against the solid iron handle of the bench lathe. A tress of her auburn hair was founded tangled around the handle with dried blood.
Mary fell to the floor unconscious and he dragged her to the metal room’s bathroom, and noticed blood pouring from the gash behind her head, a crime-scene clue that terrified him.
Frank ripped a strip from her dress from the hem to the crotch and put it under her head to soak up the blood,
Frank then ripped open her underwear, and savagely raped the unconscious girl.
While in the process of raping her, she came to.
She helding her hand over her black and blue eye and aching right cheek, and begged Frank to stop.
Before he could ejaculate, her loud protests led him to stand up, spot a seven-foot cord hanging from a nail on the wall, put it around her neck, and strangle her, which probably took over a minute.
Frank had to now decide how to frame one of his black employees for the crime, the janitor or the watchman.
The Trauma of Rape
To my utter consternation, half the women I have been involved with (in two marriages, in two long-term relationships and in other involvements, have told me they had been raped or otherwise sexually intimidated…. One of my close family members as a teenage girl suffered a black man exposing himself to her at midnight on a Bue Line subway car while heading home from work at the famous Cheers bar in Boston.
I think women often just do not want to talk about it to men. (A person dear to me was raped :-( by a black with a knife in DC, and later hit by a black with a bat or other heavy object on the head in a robbery just before Christmas in 1996, and later was robbed with a gun by a third black.) She shakes it all off to me as if it were nothing. But other women stay visible traumatized by it when they recount what happened.
Had Mary Phagan survived she would have lived the rest of her life as a Jew-humiliated rape victim, but by God that redhead fought back! She is really a role model for us all, that girl.
As for Mary Ann, she was a little Keltic honey with that auburn hair and dark-blue eyes (suggested by the colorized black & white photo below), with no dad (she had a stepdad), and before the pencil factory she had been a tenant farmer girl, which is like being a white slave, really. (It is like Michael Hoffman’s book They Were White and They Were Slaves.)
The life of tenant farmers was a life of poverty and debt, working under singeing, humid heat, up to 90 degrees Fahrenheit — 35 degrees Celsius — for six months out of the year. No Keltic girl from northern European stock should have to undergo that kind of humid heat.
(This is why the black slaves were imported, to work under such steamy conditions. But I know a comrade from Mississippi, Phil Logan — handsome fellow of Scotch-Irish heritage — and he picked cotton as a kid alongside the blacks in the same heat.)
Mary Ann Phagan was no country-club Republican, no spoiled white girl snapping gum while texting and gossiping on her cell phone all day. She was a WORKER!
Aunt, mother and sister

Ben Phagan was a sailor aboard the USS Franklin (1864-1915), one of the last of the US Navy’s sailing ships.
And the key fact is that the Jew Leo Frank’s own Jewish wife shunned him after the crime, not visiting him for two weeks in jail — and then refusing to be buried next to him. There were dozens of stories from former employees accusing Frank of what today would be called sexual harassment.
At Frank’s trial, as his wife listened, young women who had worked at the factory said Frank had forced himself on women, made insinuating comments and barged into dressing rooms while the girls were undressed. It was a nightmare for the defense and of course the Southern jury was especially outraged. The honor of women was a high priority in this culture.
Some “innocent martyr”! A wife knows!
Marriage Certificate of 11/30/1910 of Leo Frank and Lucille Selig
In movies and theater productions depicting Frank as a martyr, attractive actors and actresses are always used to portray the couple.
Under massive pressure from the big New York Jews, who had taken over the case, Lucille Frank reversed her public position, and proclaimed that Leo was innocent.
“The Tribe,” as Jews privately call Jewry amongst themselves, commands the loyalty, obedience, and fear of many Jews, and of course Jews have money to also bribe individuals.
A whopping nineteen female employees of the National Pencil Factory testified about the bad moral character of Leo Frank.
Two of them:
Closeup of the top story:
Myrtice Cato and Marie Karst denounced the sex fiend.
The William J. Burns Detective Agency of New York is hired by the Leo M. Frank legal team to come down to Atlanta and subvert justice. Detective William Burns was later dismissed for being too obvious in his bribing, threatening and criminal activity.
He received a telegram in NYC after his firing from Marietta, Georgia after the lynching of Leo M. Frank. The telegram sarcastically urged him to “come down quickly and investigate the lynching,” signed H.H. Looney Chief of Police. ;-) William Burns had been driven out of Georgia with threats of lynching himself when it was discovered he was hired by big Jewish money to try to bribe any witnesses he could and turn the Mary Phagan murder investigation into a carnival side show with grandiose announcements in the local newspapers. He want on to other scandals after this, including tampering with federal jurors in the infamous Teapot Dome scandal: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_J._Burns
*** Hillary Clinton “stands by her man”
In the same way, Hillary Clinton “stood up for” her adulterous husband Bill in January 1992 on TV when he was running for president in the critical New Hampshire primary (see the video below), and Hillary defended him once again against “right-wing conspirators” when the Monica Lewinski scandal broke in 1997. But the private actions of both women toward their husbands speak another language. Here were the Clintons on TV in 1992. prevaricating to “Sixty Minutes” and to the country., and at 9:57 Hillary, a Chicago half-Jewesss via her father Hugh Rodham (who at death was buried in a secret ceremony), even puts on a Southern accent that has long since disappeared!:
On January 27, 1998, Hillary, who had zero reason by that point to believe in her husband’s fidelity, lied again to Matt Lauer of the NBC program, the “Today Show”, accusing others and saying that the Monica Lewinsky allegations reflected a ” vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president.”
In the same way, Jews claimed then and now that an “antisemitic conspiracy” framed Leo Frank.
In 1954 Lucille Frank signed her last will and testament, requesting cremation, and she asked her family to spread her ashes in a park within Atlanta’s city limits, but a local ordinance allegedly forbade it for health policy reasons, and she was buried between the head stones of her parents.
She does not lie next to the supposedly innocent victim of antisemitism — who in truth was a pervert rapist-murderer whom the righteous, leading citizens of Georgia took out of state prison in 1915 at gunpoint and lynched just as the Jews and their puppet governor prepared to set the fiend free by legal manoeuverings after every court in the land — district, state and federal — had confirmed he was GUILTY AS CHARGED!
He was executed at what is now 1200 Roswell Road, Marietta, Georgia, but then was woods and a cotton gin called Frey’s Gin, belonging to the then former sheriff, William Frey. A dental building is now located there. It bears from one side the more appropriate address of 42 East Frey’s Gin Court. Two plaques erected by Jews defending their criminal friend also mark the location.
Jews put up not one but two plaques on the building defending their rapist coreligionist. The ADL mantra all over the Internet is that the poor Jew was “Wrongly Accused, Falsely Convicted, and Wantonly Murdered.”
Plaques mark the approximate location of where Leo Frank was hanged on August 17, 1915. Leo Frank was executed for garroting Mary Phagan to death on April 26, 1913. No markers exist at the location of the former National Pencil Company where Mary Ann Phagan was strangled to death and raped.
Mrs. Frank was a Cohen, descended from the priestly class (Kohen” meaning “priest” in Hebrew). She was a Selig-Cohen, of German-Jew stock, of the American Jew elite. Leo Frank, her husband, was a German Jew as well. This was the German-Jewish aristocracy described in the book Our Crowd, the Stephen Birmingham bestseller (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Crowd), the German-Jew elite of the USA.
Leo Frank had a life of affluence at the famous Pratt School in NYC, then the Ivy League university Cornell, then European trips.
Frank at Cornell in 1906
He ran B’nai B’rith of Georgia. When arrested, he got the top lawyers in Georgia and Jew York City. The governor of Georgia got involved. This was and this IS a big deal, not some obscure local crime in some pencil factory. (The Sam Nunn Federal Bldg. is there now where the National Pencil Factory once stood; how typical of the jewfeds to erase all trace of a Jew crime.)
I hope people are bringing flowers to her grave. Mary Phagan should be turned into a real martyr, a saint, for that she was.
And there should indeed be pilgrimages, and we must ever remember that the Nuremberg Laws under Adolf Hitler forbade male Jews from employing female Gentiles under age 40 with very good reason!
Let us also honor this day Tom Watson, fearless newspaper and magazine publisher, who kept the heat on the Jew Frank and his goy collaborators until the Georgia public finally had enough of legal shenanigans and took Frank out and strangled that Jew with a rope as he had strangled Mary Ann!
Thomas Watson, publisher and later the governor of Georgia. Southerners had never been antisemitic until this shocking incident — 1) the rape-murder itself, and then 2) Frank’s fellow Jews not condemning and repudiating, but rallying to and defending the guilty man just because he was a Jew – opened their eyes to the depths of Jewish evil and the clanlike, gangland Jewish mentality. In any other ethnic group, such a vile creature would have been excommunicated by his brethren, but Frank, accused of first-degree (premeditated) murder, was even re-elected in prison as the head of B’nai B’rith of Atlanta! Watson awakened Georgia to what was happening! He awakened anew the honor of the white men of the South! The New York Times bashing of Georgia caused a backlash, exacerbating raw wounds in the South and made Georgians feel this big Northern newspaper was dictating to their courts and people. This is where the great populist politician Tom Watson came into full cry. He seized on what he saw as highly offensive coverage and reprinted it in his newspaper, The Jeffersonian. There he was every week showing Georgians what the rest of the world was writing about them, alongside his comments. Within months, the entire state was whipped up to a fever pitch.
The rape-murder was committed on Confederate Memorial Day, as Mary Ann was in to get her meager pay and then attend the parade.
In July 1898, when Mary was just one, 30,000 Confederate veterans had assembled in Atlanta to hear Confederate General John B. Gordon, who afterward served as a US senator and governor, speak in honor of their sacrifices.
General Gordon during the War between the States
Mary Phagan, 13, supported with her 55 hours a week of pencil-factory work, laboring on a machine located grimly next to the bathroom, to help support her five siblings and her mom. Mary’s biological father had died four months before she was born. She was not a supermodel or starlet, she was a nice, pretty girl of keltic blood who fought off her goy-hating Jew rapist boss until he slammed her head against a lathe and then violated the dying girl with some object, the twisted, gentile-hating fiend!
This thing needs to take off! Jews always whine about being victims!
Well, here is a REAL VICTIM!
Her head was slammed so hard against a lathe a hank of her red hair was ripped off and stuck with its blood to the machine.
Her foul killer, but hey, he was only obediently following his sacred book, the Talmud, which preaches that gentile girls are filth that can be used after the third day.
Testimony under oath of black janitor Jim Conley: Conley testified that Frank told him that a girl would be coming by for “a chat” and that he should listen for the superintendent’s foot stomp, which would be his signal to lock the front door. When he heard Frank whistle, he was to unlock the door. Conley told jurors that sometime after Mary arrived and went upstairs, he heard instead a scream coming from the direction of the metal room.
“He asked [me], ‘Did you see that little girl who passed here a while ago?’ I told him I saw one come along there and she has not come down, and he says, ‘well, that one you say didn’t come back down. She came into my office a little while ago and I wanted to be with the little girl and she refused me and I struck her and I guess I struck her too hard and she fell and hit her head against something and I didn’t know how bad she got hurt.’
After he said about how she got hurt, he said, “You know, I ain’t built like other men.” The reason he said that was that I had seen him in a position I haven’t seen any other man that has got children. I have seen him in the office two or three times before Thanksgiving and a lady was in the office and she was sitting down in a chair and she had her clothes up to here (indicating his waist) and he was down on his knees and she had her hands on Mr. Frank.
Q. You say you saw this two or three times?
A. I have seen him another time there in the packing room with a young lady lying on the table. She was on the edge of the table when I saw her.
(Jim Conley was tried and convicted for his role as an aider and abettor in the Phagan murder, having carried the murdered girl’s body to the basement at Frank’s order, where possibly Frank wanted her body burned in the basement furnace. Conley received a one-year sentence. Unfortunately for the defense, when it appealed the guilty verdict, a pastor who had claimed he had overheard Conley confess himself to the crime admitted that his statement blaming Conley was false and that he offered the statement because defense attorneys and investigators “were just handing money out.“ )
Prosecutor Hugh Dorsey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hugh_M._Dorsey) told the jury
…that Frank killed not in anger or for money, but to satisfy insatiable lust. He painted Frank as a sexually abnormal man at a time when sexual “acts against nature” were considered among the most heinous crimes imaginable, and implied strongly he was into anal sex and was bisexual, having sex with men as well as women.
Dorsey also rejected any other issues, such as resentment between Gentiles and Jews and between Blacks and Whites. The Leo Frank legal eagles had overtly played the “race card” and the accusation that if Mary was raped and murdered, it must have been by “a negro.” The white jury felt insulted by this blatant attempt at manipulation.
All the jury was aware of racial tensions in the city of Atlanta. There had been a four-day race riot in 1906, just seven years earlier, with over 10,000 Whites rampaging against what they perceived as a plague of Black rapists coming out of cheap bars, which they called “dives,” to molest White women. These dives for Black patrons supposedly featured pictures of attractive White women. Wikipedia claims that between 25 and 40 Blacks were killed and at least two Whites, and Blacks resettled for their safety in the western part of the city.
Despite the political correctness of the Wikipedia article here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlanta_Race_Riot Atlanta was in fact a hotbed of violent crime and of brothels. No political race or newspaper articles by themselves could cause that many White city people to riot. Wikipedia claims that 15,000 White Atlantans joined a new KKK chapter called the Nathan Bedford Forrest Klan No. 1. So there was indeed a keen awareness of Black crime and rape, but as the trial showed, there was on the other hand no blind willingness to blame any and all Blacks.
A French magazine ran a cover story on the September 1906 race riot.
But despite this reality of Black rape, other crimes and general racial tension, the White jury totally rejected all attempts by the Frank white-shoe lawyers to frame the black janitor or watchman.
In Frank’s four-hour statement, which he insisted on delivering NOT under oath (which perturbed and puzzled the jury), Frank told jurors in stilted language that he was “completely unstrung” by the discovery of the body. He said the sight of “that little girl on the dawn of womanhood so cruelly murdered” was “a scene that would have melted stone.”
Avenge her! For the sake of all white girls and women!
The ultimate in hypocrisy is that at the same time as Jewish money was setting up the NAACP to “help the blacks fight racial injustice,” Conley was the object of a frame-up attempted by the Frank legal defense team. It called the janitor as “a plain, beastly, drunken, filthy, lying [n----r] …fired with lust….” Even The New York Times would eventually describe him as a “drunken, lowlived, utterly worthless…black human animal.”
Frank’s lawyer, the top-pay Luther Rosser, told jurors in vain: “Conley is a plain, beastly, drunken, filthy, lying nigger with a spreading nose through which probably tons of cocaine have probably been sniffed.” And yet the all-white, Southern jury, in the heyday of the KKK, an organization vigilant about deterring the rape of white women by blacks, refused to believe that Conley did it, even though Conley had done jail time, as had many blacks, for various offenses.
Hugh Dorsey, prosecutor (“Solicitor”) for Fulton County (the location of Atlanta, the capital of the State of Georgia), had the last word. He accused the defense attorneys of appealing to racial prejudice to salvage their losing case. He denied that Frank was prosecuted because he was a Jew, observing: “This great people rise to heights sublime, but they sink to the depths of degradation, too, and they are amenable to the same laws as you or I and the black race.” Later in his argument, Dorsey faced Frank and stated the prosecution’s theory of the murder: “You assaulted her, and she resisted. She wouldn’t yield. You struck her and you ravished her and she was unconscious.”
“You killed Mary Phagan,” Dorsey told Frank, “to save your reputation, because dead people tell no tales.” Concluding, Dorsey said “there can be but one verdict” and that, he told the jury twelve times between the rings of the bells of a nearby church as it signaled noon, is “guilty!”
The jury, balloting twice, deliberated less than two hours. Asked by Judge Roan whether the jury had reached a verdict, jury foreman Fred Wilburn replied: “We have, your honor. We have found the defendant guilty.”
People leaving the courtroom were greeted by an astonishing spectacle. For blocks around, cheering people filled the streets of Atlanta. Dorsey was hoisted up by three powerful white men on their shoulders and carried through the crowd. (Seen statewide as a hero, he later became a two-term governor of Georgia –fighting to improve public education and avoid the lynchings of blacks — and later was a superior court judge.)
The next day, Judge Roan pronounced sentence. He ordered that on October 10, 1913, Leo Frank “be hanged by the neck until he shall be dead.”
The Leo Frank case is also a way to show:
1) that white men can take action, even with a revolver and a rope, when justice is repeatedly denied them;

This is a summary of the 1989 book by Mary Phagan Kean, the grand-niece of the victim, entitled Leo Frank and the Murder of Little Mary Phagan, dealing with the murder of her great-aunt by Leo Frank, his trial and the evidence.
(One can see the almost uncanny family resemblance, especially if little Mary Ann had grown up to middle age.)
Notes: This book is the best attempt of all the books on the subject at creating an even-handed review of all the remaining documents on the trial and conviction of Leo Max Frank.
'The Murder of Little Mary Phagan' was written by Mary Phagan Kean, born June 5, 1953. Publisher: New Horizon Press (September 15, 1989).

The Murder of Little Mary Phagan by Mary Phagan-Kean is an exceptional biography, detailing the most infamous criminal case in the annals of early 20th century Southern legal history. What makes this book so unique is it provides an intimate view of the Frank-Phagan case from the grandniece herself of blue-eyed little Mary Anne Phagan, the victim.
Mary Ann Phagan was born on Thursday, June 1, 1899, and was raped with some unknown object, slammed against a lathe and strangled to death on Saturday, April 26, 1913 by her Jewish boss, Leo Max Frank. Frank was a pencil factory manager in Atlanta, a Cornell engineering graduate, the husband of one of the major débutantes in Jewish Atlanta, and a high official of the major Jewish organization, B'nai B'rith (in Hebrew, "Sons of the Covenant"), and the president of its Georgia branch. To this day, Jewish organizations lie that Frank was innocent and a victim of antisemitism. The most they could get to reverse the guilty verdict of history and many courtooms was to get a pardon in 1986, not an overturning of the guilty verdict. A pardon means just what it says, "guilty but forgiven." And forgiven only because he was lynched.... which was considered "unfair" because it prevented him from further (and futile) appeals of his life sentence.
This is the most even-handed book ever written about this Jewish-Gentile conflict and its contentious aftermath over the last hundred years.

After Ol' Newt Lee, the "negro" National Pencil Company night watchman, punched the time clock in Leo Frank's second floor business office at 3:01 o'clock a.m., he went down to the basement for the purpose of using the racially segregated Negro toilet.

National Pencil Company, 37-41 South Forsyth Street, Atlanta, Georgia in 1913 (http://www.leofrank.org/national-pencil-company/)
The Sam Nunn Federal Building is located here today. The pencil factory closed in 1915 due to the scandal. The Jew's team of pricey lawyers tried to frame two innocent blacks for Frank's murder, presuming that all Southerners were easily manipulable bigots, thus insulting the jury.
When Lee completed his business and went to check the back door of the cellar service ramp, something out of the ordinary appeared faintly in the darkness. As he held his smoky lantern closer, it appeared to be a dead child, who had been horribly mauled.
From the autopsy: (http://www.leofrank.org/mary-phagan-autopsy/) by F. H., Harris, MD., performed Monday, May 5, 1913, and testified under oath at the Leo Frank murder trial on Friday, August 1, 1913.
I made an examination of the privates of Mary Phagan. I found no spermatozoa. On the walls of the vagina there was evidences of violence of some kind. The epithelium was pulled loose, completely detached in places, blood vessels were dilated immediately beneath the surface and a great deal of hemorrhage in the surrounding tissues. The dilation of the blood vessels indicated to me that the injury had been made in the vagina some little time before death. Perhaps ten to fifteen minutes. It had occurred before death by reason of the fact that these blood vessels were dilated. Inflammation had set in and it takes an appreciable length of time for the process of inflammatory change to begin. There was evidence of violence in the neighborhood of the hymen.
[WARNING: GRIM DETAIL ............................ It appears, and this is extremely unpleasant, that the fiend penetrated her dry vagina with his finger (or some other smooth object such as a broomstick, which left no splinters) to cause trauma and pain. The fact that there was "a great deal of hemorrhage" strongly indicates she was alive when this happened and had been knocked unconscious or was dazed. At death, the heart of course ceases to pump and blood pressure drops drastically, resulting in little blood flow. This supports the belief that Mary Ann fought off her attacker vigorously until her head was smashed against the lathe. Then she was further violated while alive..... ]
A black and white plate of Mary Ann Phagan, colorized with her actual hair and eye color. Mary worked for hours at the eraser tip machine, which was near the lavatory. Leo Frank, who did all payroll, lied in court that he did not even know who she was. He also drank a pot of coffee every day, and as nature called frequently passed by her work station on his way to the lavatory. He could not have failed to notice an attractive girl he passed by several times every day for a year — and who was showing some curves even at 14.
In 1913 the NPC had more than 170 employees, more girls than boys according to Leo Frank (State’s Exhibit B, April 28, 1913). Most of the laborers at the NPCo were pre-teen and teenaged children who worked 10 hour shifts 5 days week and a half day on Saturday, toiling for mere pennies an hour.
Lee rapidly climbed two flights to call his superintendent Leo Frank, but after eight minutes of trying, no one answered, so Newt called the Atlanta police.
The grisly discovery launched an investigation that began precisely at 3:24 AM on Sunday, April 27, 1913, when the graveyard shift call-officer, W.F. Anderson, was notified by a telephone from a frantic black man about the discovery. A squad car filled with officers was immediately dispatched. What happened next was revealed at the Leo Frank trial three months later, as first responders described in details the nitty-gritty of what occurred between 3:24 a.m. and sunrise.
At dawn, after the police had failed to reach Leo Frank by phone all night long, they finally got through to him at 7:00 am and rushed over to his residence to take him directly to the morgue to have him identify the dead body. After Leo Frank claimed to be unsure about the identity of the dead girl, police officers took him to his second-floor office at the National Pencil Company in an effort to pinpoint the exact time of Phagan’s arrival.
Saturday, April 26, 1913 at 12:03 o’clock p.m.
Inside Leo Frank’s business office, he opened up his payroll ledger and told the Atlanta police that Mary Phagan had arrived at about 12:03 p.m. on Saturday, April 26, 1913, had asked for her pay and then left.
Monday, April 28, 1913 at 9:00 a.m.
The next day, Monday morning, April 28, 1913, Leo Frank would change the time of Phagan’s arrival in his office to between, “12:05 to 12:10 p.m., maybe 12:07 p.m.” (State’s Exhibit B, Leo Frank Trial Brief of Evidence, 1913.
Leo Frank was arrested on suspicion, Tuesday, April 29th at 11:35 o’clock a.m. This was his last day of freedom. Two days after Frank’s arrest, on Thursday, May 1st, 1913 Jim Conley, the black janitor at the pencil factory, was arrested .
Milestone in the Mary Phagan Murder Investigation
Something very interesting happened a few days later, on Saturday, May 3, one week after the murder. and it became a major breakthrough. Detectives stumbled upon one of the child employees who had once worked at the National Pencil Company (NPC). Inside the business office that Leo Frank had used, they discovered a young girl named Monteen Stover, who was there to collect her pay envelope for a second time. This time she was accompanied by her incensed stepmother, having failed a week earlier (on the day of the murder, which also happened to be Confederate Memorial Day) to find anyone to hand it to her get it when she arrived alone at the factory at five minutes past noon.
When Atlanta police thoroughly questioned Monteen Stover, she revealed something rather curious. Stover told them that when she arrived at the NPC exactly one week earlier and made her first attempt to get her wages, Leo Frank was not in his office — as he normally was in the past — at the normal payday time of noon. More chronologically specific, Stover said Leo Frank’s office was empty when she waited, inside it, from 12:05 p.m. to 12:10 pm.
This was earth-shattering for Frank, because on Monday, April 28, two days after the crime, Leo Frank had made an unsworn deposition in the presence of his elite attorneys to a room full of Atlanta police detectives (taken down by a stenographer) in which Frank precisely stated, differing from Monteen Stover, that he was in his office, and that he was alone with Mary Phagan, between 12:05 p.m. and 12:10 p.m. (State’s Exhibit B). Even more significant is that Leo Frank told the police on Sunday, April 27, 1913, not only that Mary Phagan had come to his office at 12:03 p.m., but that he had not left his office until 12:45 p.m.
So why had Monteen testified she found the office empty?
Sunday, May 4, 1913, The Moment of Truth
Without Leo Frank knowing the police had discovered and questioned 14-year old Monteen Stover, Atlanta PD detective John R. Black and Pinkerton Detective Harry Scott approached Leo Frank in his jail cell on Sunday, May 4, and asked him again if he had been in his office every minute on Saturday, April 26, from noon to 12:45 p.m. and Leo Frank responded with “yes.” The officers then took a different angle and asked Leo Frank if he had been in his office every minute on Saturday, April 26, from noon to half past noon (that is, 12:30 p.m., a shorter period), and Leo Frank again responded with “yes.” It was thus on the eighth day after the murder of Mary Phagan that the police discovered a major discrepancy in Leo Frank’s murder alibi. (“Alibi” is Latin for “somewhere else.”) Though Leo Frank, would maintain stubbornly up until his trial that he had not budged from his office between noon and 12:45 p.m., when he went upstairs to the fourth floor to inform two employees he was leaving the building for dinner (as a more formal age called a hot, formal lunch).
For the police, 14-year old Monteen Stover had just unintentionally shattered the murder alibi of Leo Frank, but they would have to wait three and a half months to see how Leo Frank would account for this contradiction at his trial. That is how long Leo Frank maintained that he had never left his office, but then something electrifying happened.
Leo Frank Murder Trial, August 18, 1913
At his murder trial, Leo Frank had to address why Monteen said his office was empty at the exact time he claimed that he and Phagan were in there together with no Monteen. Frank suddenly changed his original murder alibi, after maintaining it for over 100 days, for the time between 12:05 p.m and 12:10 p.m., and in doing so he revealed who killed Mary Phagan.
Unique Trial Analysis
Mary Phagan Kean offers a uniquely neutral analysis of the month-long capital murder trial of Leo Frank, which began on July 28, and led to his August 25, 1913, murder conviction after only two hours of jury deliberation. The decision, rendered by 12 white jurors, also included a recommendation to the presiding judge that Leo Frank suffer death as his punishment. Both the conviction and sentencing recommendation of the jury were confirmed the next day by the presiding Judge, the Honorable Leonard Strickland Roan, on Tuesday morning, August 26, 1913. Judge Leonard S. Roan sentenced Leo Frank to death by hanging as prescribed by the law. The execution date was first scheduled for October 10, 1913, but appeals by Frank and his legal team set the execution date back repeatedly for two more long years.
Slaton, all distinguished and icy-looking. What’s wrong with saving a pedophile who killed a kid if his buddies makes you rich?
Leo Frank’s appeals ran from August 1913 to April 1915, all rejected by higher courts. The commutation by Georgia governor John M. Slaton of his death sentence on June 21, 1915 into life in prison caused instant outrage, for the case had never left public attention, and many suspected the commutation would be just the first stage before an eventual pardon “after things died down.” A mob of 1,200 angry citizens marched on the governor’s mansion, finally quelled and dispersed only by by the local militia.
Leonard Dinnerstein predictably wrote a (widely-derided) book (http://www.amazon.com/Leo-Frank-Case-Leonard-Dinnerstein/dp/0820331791) to exculpate Frank, revealing his own neanderthalic genes and clannish, tribal mentality (http://www.democratic-republicans.us/solutreanism/jews/neanderthals-and-semites)
Leo Frank, side profile with classic neanderthal features such as the protruding, almost bulging mouth and sloping forehead
I wrote a review of this book for Amazon, stating (as found here: http://www.amazon.com/The-Frank-Case-Leonard-Dinnerstein/product-reviews/0820331791/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_btm?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending) :
This book is erudite double-talk that avoids the massive evidence of Frank’s guilt, which convinced 1) a 21-member grand jury with four Jewish members, which unanimously indicted him, 2) a district court jury, 3) the Georgia Superior Court, 4) the Georgia Supreme Court, the 5) Federal District Court and 6) the United States Supreme Court.
Why did Leonard Dinnerstein only spend one page of his 280-pager on Leo Frank’s four-hour peroration to the jury that occurred on August 18, 1913, which proved the turning point in the case, changing suspicion of Frank into certainty of his guilt?
The “lynchers” of said Frank were not tobacco-spitting rednecks but an outraged former governor, the Speaker of the House of Representatives of Georgia, sheriffs, deputy sheriffs, police, judges and leading businessmen, bankers, lawyers and clergy. In stark contrast, the governor, John Slaton, who commuted Frank’s death sentence in 1915, was a partner in the law firm that had represented Frank, a staggering conflict of interest!
Outrageously, the Frank defense team played the race card to the transparent hilt, blaming two perfectly innocent blacks to the all-white jury for the rape-murder, calling the black janitor Conley “a plain, beastly, drunken, filthy, lying n—-r…fired with lust.” The NY Times under publisher and synagogue member Adolf Ochs also joined in, trying to frame Conley, labeling him, quote, “a drunken, lowlived, utterly worthless…black human animal.”
Leo Frank reversed himself on the stand and admitted that he was in the bathroom when and where Mary Ann Phagan was murdered. And numerous employees testified to his severe sexual harassment of female employees prior to the crime.
Lucille Frank told her own cook that Leo Frank had confessed the murder to her and had asked for a pistol to shoot himself. She refused to visit him for two weeks after his arrest, and ensured by will that she was not buried next to her supposedly innocent husband up in Queens, NY, the martyred victim of antisemitism, but instead was cremated and interred in Georgia.
But hey, what does a wife know about her husband? Or maybe Lucille Frank, née Lucille Selig-Cohen, was antisemitic?
The law firm of “Rosser, Brandon, Slaton and Phillips”
Rarely ever mentioned by the Jews who defend Frank is the outrageous and demonstrable fact that the governor who spared Frank the rope, John M. Slaton, was a partner in the very law firm that represented Leo Frank during his trial and appeals. The law firm was called Rosser, Brandon, Slaton & Phillips (the ‘Slaton’ was, it bears repeating, Governor John M. Slaton himself), having officially formed in July of 1913, just before the trial began.
Slaton was hung in effigy; Jews claim that the crowd yelled:
“Georgia’s traitor governor has sold out to sheeny gold.”
Governor Slaton had thus commuted the death sentence of his own client. Can one imagine the outcry today if a governor committed the same conflict of interest in a rape-murder case involving a child?
As for Leo Frank, he was shipped off by train the next day, on June 22, 1915, to the Milledgeville State Penitentiary, located some 170 miles from Atlanta.
The Shanking of Leo Frank
About one month later, Leo Frank was attacked in prison while sleeping and had the left side of his throat slashed at 11:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 17, 1915. The shanking was committed by a fellow inmate named William Creen. Leo Frank barely survived the attack.
The Lynching of Leo Max Frank
On August 16, 1915, Leo Frank was abducted from prison in a military commando style raid, by some of the most prominent citizens in the State of Georgia, driven for 8 hours northwest to the edge of Marietta and lynched at sunrise on August 17, 1913. The site of Leo Frank’s lynching was former Sheriff Frey’s cotton gin (now at 1200 Roswell Road, Marietta, Georgia).
The Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith
Nearly 70 years after the lynching of Leo Frank, the organized Jewish community applied political pressure and backroom dealing involving the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B’nai B’rith, individual Jews and Jewish groups, resulting in a highly political posthumous pardon without criminal exoneration for Leo Frank on Tuesday, March 11, 1986.

The Leo Frank case continues to capture the imagination of the public, now more than ever as 100 years has passed since the celebrated conviction of Leo Frank.
Brief Biography of Leo Frank (1884 to 1915)
Leo Max Frank was born in Cuero, in southern Texas (known as the “turkey capital of the world”/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuero,_Texas), on Thursday, April 17, 1884 to a local postmaster, Rudolph Frank, a Jew who had immigrated from Germany in 1869, and to Rachel Frank, a native New Yorker from Brooklyn. The Frank family moved three months after Leo’s birth back north to Brooklyn, where Leo was raised and educated in the NYC public school system. After completing college prep work at the Pratt Institute High School of Brooklyn (1898 – 1902),

Leo Frank matriculated into the Ivy League university of Cornell in Ithaca, NY. At Cornell, a strong science and engineering school, in the fall of 1902, Leo Frank majored in mechanical engineering and became very active in several college groups.
Sage chapel at Cornell where Ezra Cornell, who founded the school in 1865, is buried.
During the summer break of 1905, between his Junior and Senior year at college, Leo Frank went with his wealthy uncle Moses Frank on a sojourn to Europe, spending the summer traveling extensively and visiting with extended family.
In the fall of 1905, Leo Frank began his senior year of college. And after successfully graduating in June, 1906 with his degree in mechanical engineering, Leo Frank bounced around from one job to another, including Hyde Park Massachusetts, until he visited Atlanta, Georgia, in October of 1907, and met again with his rich uncle Moses Frank and a delegation of Jewish Southerners, such as Sigmund Montag. There they discussed a potentially lucrative business venture in the manufacture of pencils.
After visiting Atlanta for two weeks, Leo Frank made the very serious life-changing decision, and decided he wanted to participate in his wealthy uncle’s manufacturing venture. To fulfill this promise, Leo Frank would again go on another sojourn overseas to Europe, this time to study with the world-renowned Eberhard-Faber in Germany. (The American branch began making pencils in NYC in 1861, where the UN building stands today.) Mary Ann Phagan ran the machine that put a metal sleeve around the wooden pencil so an eraser could be inserted.
Leo Frank left NYC on November 7, 1907, ocean-bound for Europe. Once Leo Frank arrived in Bavaria he began diligently studying the pencil manufacturing process. After his nine-month engineering apprenticeship was completed, Leo Frank returned to NYC on August 1, 1908 aboard the USS Amerika, and then briefly stopped at his home in Brooklyn to visit his family (Rudolph, Rachel and sister Marian) for a few days.

On August 4, 1908, Leo Frank embarked on a southbound train from Penn Station in Manhattan with his over-sized weathered leather luggage and relocated to the capital of Georgia.

Frank arrived at Terminal Station in Atlanta on August 6, 1908, starting a new life in “the Heart of the South.”
On Monday morning, August 10th, 1908, Leo Frank started work as Superintendent of the National Pencil Company, located at 37 to 41 South Forsyth Street in downtown Atlanta.
1910, Leo Frank Marries Lucille Selig
Two years later on November 30, 1910, Leo Frank married into an upper middle class German-Jewish family (Cohen-Selig), an established Southern family whose ancestors had founded the first synagogue in Atlanta two generations prior. Leo Frank was a rising star, becoming very actively involved with Jewish philanthropy and Atlanta’s upper-crust society life in the South.
Even though Frank was born in Texas, he was considered a red-blooded “Yankee” by Southern standards. Yet he assimilated quickly and was elected B’nai B’rith President of the Gate City Lodge, founded in 1870 in Atlanta, in September of 1912 by the 500-member Jewish fraternal order.
And oddly enough, the convicted child-rapist-murderer was unanimously re-elected again in 1913, less than a month after his murder conviction. B’nai B’rith was so strongly united behind Leo Frank, that they founded the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith on his behalf in October of 1913.
By 1913, with nearly 5 years of hands-on experience in pencil manufacturing, Leo Frank had reached the pinnacle of his career, running the factory as not only general superintendent, but also part owner through the acquisition of company shares. His high rank and partial ownership enabled him to receive $100 a month as a courtesy while he was imprisoned.

The National Pencil Co. headquarters was located on 37 to 41 South Forsyth Street, near the corner of Hunter Street, it was there that thirteen-year-old Mary Phagan, an employee of Leo Frank, had begun working in the early spring of 1912, or about a little more than a year (13 months) before she was murdered. Mary Phagan worked 150 feet down the hall from Leo Frank’s office on the 2nd floor, where she participated in the final and finishing production stages of the pencil manufacturing process. Mary Phagan worked in the metal department, known colloquially by factory employees as the “metal room”, in a section called the tipping department adjacent to the only set of bathrooms on the second floor.
Using a knurling machine, Phagan’s job involved inserting rubber erasers into the paper-thin brass metal tubes that were partially attached around the ends of pencil stock. Her final paycheck for for $1.20, about $120 today …. for 55 hours of work ($2.50 an hour).
A letter Frank wrote to his uncle the very day he murdered Mary Ann Phagan
The ONLY Bathroom on the Second Floor was Located Inside the Metal Room
An important detail rarely mentioned about the “metal room”, where Mary Phagan worked, contained within it, the only bathroom on the second floor – which became a critical element of the solution to her murder. Moreover, Mary Phagan’s work station was next to the bathroom door and Leo Frank would pass immediately by her everyday when he needed to use the toilet, which was likely quite often, given that Leo Frank was known for drinking copious amounts of black coffee every day.
Forensic Evidence Discovered, Monday, April 28, 1913
It was in said metal room where an unusual five-inch-wide blood stain, crowned with spatter droplets, was found on the floor adjacent to the bathroom entry way, and red hair soaked with blood that had dried was found tangled around the solid iron handle of a lathe in the same room.
These forensic discoveries in the metal room were initially made Monday morning, at 6:35 AM, on April 28, 1913, when an early-bird employee named Robert P. Barret arrived to start the fresh work week after the Confederate Memorial weekend festivities. (This holiday across the South, began in 1866 and still celebrated in nine states today, gave rise two years later — 1868 — to the current federal Memorial Day holiday.)

As Barret’s hand reached for the handle of his lathe, his fingers became entangled with red hair which had not been there when he had left his work station on Friday evening, April 25, at 6:00 o’clock p.m.
Word of Mary Phagan’s death had already reached all of Atlanta, when a newspaper “extra” edition, published by the Atlanta Constitution at the behest of star reporter Britt Craig, was released on Sunday, April 27, 1913, just hours after the normal Sunday morning edition already appeared.
Once the word got out about the discovery of hair and blood forensic evidence in the metal room, word traveled like wildfire around the factory, employees erupted into emotional hysterics, flocked to the metal room, and gawked at the unusual blood stains on the floor and the hank of 6 to 8 strands of red hair suspended from the handle of the bench lathe. A number of employees immediately recognized the hair as distinctly being that of Mary Phagan and testified to that effect at the Leo Frank trial.
John Kennedy, Irish-American like Miss Phagan, and also murdered by a Jew, Lyndon Baines Johnson, likewise had auburn hair.
A white powder known as haskolene — used as a machine lubricant — was found suspiciously smeared and rubbed into the fresh blood stains on the metal room floor. What was so significant about the location of the blood stains is that they were conspicuously in front of the girls’ dressing room and next to the bathroom door, adjacent to where Phagan’s workstation was located.
The powder smearing appeared to be an attempt to cover up the evidence on the floor, but the blood bled through the white powder, turning the dark red stains into variations of white, pink and red. The blood stain also had a star-burst spatter pattern behind it, indicating how Phagan came into contact with the floor — hard.
Botched Crime-Scene Clean-up
The poorly conducted “clean-up job” gave the appearance of a failed attempt at obscuring the blood stains. This stained area of the floor was found by Jim Conley, at the behest of Leo Frank, during the noon hour of April 26, 1913. Frank’s legal eagles, for “sheeny gold,” would try to frame the innocent black man Conley for the murder, figuring a white Southern jury perhaps could be manipulated into believing a blackman did it.
Little Mary Phagan’s Life (1899 – 1913):
The 55 hour work week Mary Phagan performed at the pencil factory was her small way of helping support her five siblings and widowed mother. Mrs. Phagan remarried to a cotton-mill worker named John William Coleman in 1912. Mary Phagan’s stepfather had known Mary and her family quite well for about 4 years, before marrying into the Phagan family. Mr. Coleman, the stepfather, positively identified the hair found on the lathe machine as belonging to Mary Phagan, as did several other employees who worked in the metal room.
During the week before Phagan’s murder, a shortage of brass sheet metal at the factory had led to a reduction in her work hours and she was temporarily laid off by Leo Frank on Monday, April 21, 1913, until the supplies could be replenished. Phagan’s wages for the shortened work week came to just $1.20, for the 16 hours she had worked the previous Friday, April 18, (10 hours), and Saturday, April 19, (6 hours) prior to her being laid off on Monday, April 21, and then murdered on Saturday, April 26, 1913, Confederate Memorial Day, a state legal holiday.

The First 48 Hours of the Mary Phagan Murder Investigation
George W. Epps made statements on Monday afternoon on April 28, 1913, providing troubling information to Atlanta police, stating that Mary had told him in confidence that Leo Frank scared her, and he often made lascivious sexual innuendos and inappropriate insinuations toward her. Epps said Leo Frank was “after her” in local parlance, that Frank would stare at her strongly, wink and then smile. Phagan allegedly suggested to Epps she was growing ever more scared of her superintendent.
According to George W. Epps, Mary Phagan told him specifically that Leo Frank would sometimes run up in front of her, thus ostensibly blocking her way when she was trying to leave work, and during the work day he would pester her, get a little bit too close for comfort, touch her shoulders and stare at her lecherously and then smile.
According to the unabridged Leo Frank Georgia Supreme Court Case file, George Epps, after the Leo Frank murder trial concluded, got kidnapped and ensnared in a witness-tampering scandal by Leo Frank’s legal defense team (Georgia Supreme Court Records, 1913, 1914).
George W. Epps was lured to Alabama with the promise of a job and then coerced into signing a false affidavit under duress. After George Epps was freed by his kidnappers, he later signed a true affidavit, describing the intimate details, moment by moment, of his being abducted and taken all the way to Alabama. The true affidavit described in details the dishonest trickery that unraveled when Epps was forced to sign a pre-written affidavit that was filled with lies and recantations.
In The First 24 Hours of the Mary Phagan Murder, Sunday, April 27, 1913
When the police arrived on the scene in the basement of the National Pencil Company at 3:45 p.m., they found Mary Phagan’s mangled body on the remnants of a saw dust mound diagonal to the furnace, she had been strangled with a cord and what looked like a frilly strip or part of her petticoat wrapped around her neck and soaked with blood.
When Atlanta Police scoured the basement there was evidence Phagan had been dragged by her arms face down from the basement’s elevator entry, 140 feet, before she was dumped near the cellar’s incinerator. Phagan’s face was so scratched up, punctured, and covered with filth, that at first the police were unsure of her race. They had to roll down a stocking from her knee to see for sure if she was White or not. However, Newt Lee remarked that he knew she was white because of the texture of her hair.
The autopsy would reveal Phagan had been hit on the face around the temple and right eyesocket with a left fist (Leo Frank was left handed). There was also a major gash on the back of her head.
The knitted bloomers of Mary Phagan were torn open across the vagina to the seam of the right leg, she had the appearance of having been violently raped, with blood and discharge present on her still attached underwear. Phagan’s face was beaten black-and-blue, and sunk deep into her neck was the 1/8th inch thick, 7 foot jute cord with which she had been strangled to death. One of the doctors who performed an autopsy, testified under oath, to several instances of sexual violence, and internal vaginal damage, torn flesh and inflammation, suggesting some kind of rape either penile or by fingers occurred before she was garroted.
Leo M. Frank, Factory Superintendent
When the detectives arrived at Leo Frank’s in-laws home, the door was answered by Mrs. Lucille Selig Frank, the wife of Leo Frank. The police asked if they could speak with Mr. Frank and Lucy welcomed them into their home. Like typical seasoned detectives, without telling Leo Frank why they were there and what it was all about, they closely observed Frank. Suspicion initially fell on Leo Frank at first sight, because he appeared to be extremely nervous, trembling, rubbing his hands, and ghastly pale. Police intimated Leo Frank appeared to be badly hung over, while he was bumbling, and jim-jamming in an agitated state. When Leo Frank asked for a cup of coffee, one of the police officers jocosely suggested whiskey. Leo Frank then began asking questions faster than the police could answer in time, his voice sounded hoarse. Leo Frank fumbled and struggled with minor tasks like fixing his collar before leaving with the police. Moreover, Leo kept saying he hadn’t had breakfast and kept asking for a cup of coffee, even after the cops joked about whiskey, as if he was trying to delay the the process of being taken to his industrial plant, where he was manager.
The police asked Leo Frank if he knew Mary Phagan, and Leo Frank denied knowing any Mary Phagan, saying he would need to check his accounting books to be sure. Frank then made some passing remark about not knowing the girls who worked for him.
The significance of Leo Frank claiming to not know Mary Phagan become an important circumstance further into the investigation, because it was later determined by factory records, she had worked for him more than a year on the same floor as his office. By measurement, Phagan’s workstation was literally only 3 to 4 feet away from the only bathroom existing on the entire second floor, the same bathroom Leo Frank visited daily during his normal 10 hour work days, as Leo Frank drank several cups of black coffee on a daily basis. Other employees testified Frank knew Mary Phagan quite well and on a first name basis, others suggested they saw Leo behave inappropriately toward Phagan.
Another incriminating fact against Leo Frank’s claims of not knowing Mary Phagan, was the payroll ledgers revealed that she had collected more than 50 pay envelopes from Leo during her year of employment and during that time she logged an impressive 2,750+ hours of work on the punch-clock at the factory from specifically: the Spring 1912, to Monday, April 21, 1913 (when she was temporarily laid off by Leo Frank, because of a shortage in metal).
Frame the Nightwatchman (“night witch”) Newt Lee
On Sunday morning at 8:26 a.m., April 27, 1913, in the presence of the Atlanta police, Leo Frank pulled out Newt Lee’s time card, eye balled it from the top downward and said it was punched correctly every half hour from the time between 6:00pm on April 26, 1913 to 3:00 am on Sunday, April 27, 1913. However, on Monday, April 28, 1913, Leo Frank changed his story and told the Atlanta Police that Newt Lee did not punch his time card at 4 disparate intervals, creating 4 hours of unaccounted for time. It put even greater suspicion on Newt Lee, because the old Negro lived less than half an hour, and the intervals suggested he had more than enough time to go home and return.
Intimations to Search Newt Lee’s Home
After making his Monday morning, April 28, 1913, deposition to Atlanta Police that became known as State’s Exhibit B, Leo Frank told the police to check his body for scratches and visit his home to look at his laundry. Leo Frank removed his shirt and the police found no visible scratchmarks on his body, and then accompanying the police to the Selig residence, Minola brought the dirty laundry basket and the clothes within it, that indicated no blood stains. Given Leo Frank’s intimations about Newt Lee’s timecard, the natural thing for the Atlanta police to do next was search Newt Lee’s shack.
Tuesday, April 29, 1913
Tuesday morning, April 29, 1913, the police entered Newt Lee’s shack without a warrant (violating his constitutional rights) using a skeleton key, outside at the bottom of a garbage burn barrel, they found a suspicious looking bloody shirt. The shirt had blood stains high up on the armpits in the front, back, and inside, in such a manner the police immediately thought it was forged and planted there intentionally. What also made detectives think the shirt might have been fabricated is because the shirt, aside from the oddly placed blood stains, appeared clean and did not have the distinctive “Negro odor” on it as they recalled when they each took turns sniffing it on Tuesday morning, April 29, 1913.
Newt Lee’s Blood-Soaked Shirt
Three contrived elements perplexed Atlanta Police about Newt Lee’s shirt, the fact it was clean, but covered with oddly placed blood smears, and had no funky “Negro smell”. These factors taken together gave the suggestion the shirt was meant to incriminate Newt Lee, but why? When the police questioned Newt Lee about the shirt, he said someone gave it to him 2 years ago and he hadn’t worn it since.
At that moment, the police began thinking, perhaps someone was trying to implicate Newt Lee the nightwatch, because the “death notes” were written with his job title misspelled as “night witch” (factory employees called the nightwatchman colloquially night watch) written on them – the time card contradiction seemed odd because of 4 missed punches and then the oddball planted shirt, all together were circumstances that began directing strong suspicion on Leo Frank, atleast in the minds of the Atlanta Police and detectives investigating the crime.
Leo Frank’s last full day of freedom was Monday, April 28, 1913, because on Tuesday April 29, 1913, at 11:30PM Leo Frank was arrested and would remain incarcerated until his lynching two years later at 1200 Roswell Rd in Marietta.
The Negro Janitor James “Jim” Conley
After arresting the factory sweeper Jim Conley on Thursday, May 1, 1913, and questioning him, it took 2.5 weeks of interrogation to get from him the revelation that he was indeed present at the factory on Confederate Memorial Day.
The Atlanta police “swetted” Jim Conley using the 3rd degree method (good cop / bad cop) and after weeks of initial failure and 3 half-truth affidavits, Atlanta’s finest finally got Conley to admit he was an accessory after the fact to the crime. More importantly, the police finally got the details out of Conley about how the body was discovered in front of the metal department’s bathroom and transported to the basement. They also were able to get an eye witness account of what Leo Frank was plotting on the afternoon of April 26, 1913.
What Happened According to Jim Conley
Jim Conley admitted he was asked by Leo Frank to move the dead body of Mary Phagan to the basement and “ghost write” dictated “death notes” as if they were written by Mary Phagan, while she was in the middle of being raped. It was necessary they be written in Negro hand writing, to draw suspicion to another Negro. The plot was Ivy League brilliant, because it put two Negroes between Leo Frank and Mary Phagan.
The Oddity of the Mary Phagan Murder Notes
The murder notes were a very contrived attempt to make it appear as if an ignorant semi-literate Negro was trying to charade the notion that Mary Phagan had written the “death notes” after she went to the bathroom in the metal room, was pushed down a hole and then sexually assaulted by Newt Lee in the basement. The “death notes” where unmistakably clear in their attempt to pin the crime and point suspicion on the “long tall slim Negro” night watchman Newt Lee (“night witch”), because the notes physically described Lee exactly, including his job title colloquially ‘Night Watch’ ebonicized as ‘Night Witch’.
Looking back from the 21st century to 1913, the “death notes” cause many people to ask themselves, when or ever in history of the cosmos has a Blackman committed battery, rape, robbery, strangulation and mutilation of a White girl, and then stuck around to write some pseudo-literature as if they were being written by the victim herself in the middle of the rape and addressing the notes to Phagan’s mother, describing what happened from the perspective of the victim.
“I write while he plays”… but the notes were unbelievable from the start, because Police thought never in history has someone written notes while they were in the midst of being raped.
The Trial of Leo M. Frank (July 28, 1913, to August 26, 1913)
Hired by the National Pencil Company, Harry Scott contradicted Leo Frank about the answer he had given to Mary Phagan, after she asked the question about her work. There was some conflicting testimony about what Leo Frank said concerning a question Mary Phagan asked him (Mr. Leo Frank) at 12:02 pm or 12:03 PM on April 26, 1913. On Monday, April 28, 1913, Pinkerton Detective Harry Scott was told by Leo Frank that Mary Phagan asked him “Has the metal come in?”. Scott told the jury, Leo Frank said to him that he told Phagan: “I Don’t Know” — it created three dimensional time and space of Leo and Mary walking together toward the metal room for the purpose of “finding out”, as the brass was normally kept in the metal-room closet.
The Leo Frank trial would make history, because it would be the first time in the South, the testimony of two Negroes (James “Jim Connolly” Conley & Newton “Newt” Lee) would provide evidence in part, leading to the conviction and death sentence of a Whiteman by an all White jury, in the White racially consciousness, Separatist and segregated Old South (a place where Jews were respected, highly regarded and treated as equals to Whites).
Frank’s mother frosts the jury and courtroom public
As even this Jewish whitewash article about Saint Leo the Harmless admits (http://gaslight.mtroyal.ca/penclfct.htm):
Leo’s case was hurt still further, if that were possible, when his mother leaped to her feet in court and cried out to Mr. Dorsey [the prosecuting district attorney]: “You Christian dog!” This was printed in the pamphlets which, in verse and prose, assailed Frank and all Jews, and which were hawked among the crowds outside the courtroom.
The REAL Star Witness Emerges: Monteen Stover
However, the real star witness at the Leo Frank Trial it turns out was not only Jim Conley, but a 14-Year-old & 5’2″ tall White girl named Monteen Stover.
Star Witness Monteen Stover and the (THIRD) Leo Frank Admission Amounting to a Murder Confession
Monteen Stover who liked Leo Frank and defended his character at the trial, had inadvertently put Leo Frank’s murder alibi into dispute.
Leo Frank swore to his lawyers, the Coroner, police, and detectives, for 3.5 months, that he had never left his office on April 26, 1913, from twelve noon to 12:45pm, but Monteen Stover had arrived at the factory to collect her pay envelope just minutes after Phagan arrived, but she did not bump into Mary Phagan walking down the stairs and Leo Frank was not in his office, nor was Leo Frank aware that Monteen Stover had arrived and waited for him inside his second floor office for five minutes between 12:05 pm to 12:10 pm.
The jury naturally would ask themselves, how come Monteen Stover neither coming or going from the factory didn’t bump into Mary Phagan between 12:04pm and 12:11pm, as it took about 1 minute (46 seconds) to reach Leo Frank’s second floor office from the front door of the factory lobby. Leo Frank would change his alibi-story about never leaving his office and respond to the testimony of Monteen Stover stating, he might have “unconsciously” gone to the only bathroom in the metalroom during that exact time!
Leo Frank Gave the Solution to the Mary Phagan Murder Mystery on Monday Afternoon, August 18, 1913 at 2:46 pm
Now gentlemen [of the Jury], to the best of my recollection from the time the whistle blew for twelve o’clock [noon on Saturday, April 26, 1913] until after a quarter to one [12:46 p.m.] when I went up stairs and spoke to Arthur White and Harry Denham [at the rear of the fourth floor], to the best of my recollection, I did not stir out of the inner office [at the front of the second floor]; but it is possible that in order to answer a call of nature or to urinate I may have gone to the toilet [in the metal room at the rear of the second floor]. Those are things that a man does unconsciously and cannot tell how many times nor when he does it (Leo Frank Trial Statement, August 18, Brief of Evidence, 1913).
Crescendo of the Leo Frank Murder Trial: State’s Exhibit A and Defendant’s Exhibit 61
Leo Frank ineluctably entrapped himself beyond escape, because the only bathroom on the second floor was located within the metal room, it was the metal room where the murder forensic evidence was found (bloody hair and bloodstains) and the prosecution had successfully built a month long case that Leo Frank had murdered Mary Phagan on April 26, 1913 in the metal room between 12:05pm and 12:10pm.
To make matters even worse, Leo Frank had made a statement, known as State’s Exhibit B stenographed by G. C. Febuary on Monday morning, April 28, 1913, where Frank said Mary Phagan had arrived into his office alone between 12:05PM and 12:10PM on April 26, 1913, but Frank’s office was empty according to Monteen Stover during that time, when she came for her pay, and then it happened! Leo replied to this incongruity, by saying he might “unconsciously” have been inside the metal room’s bathroom.
Leo Frank had made what amounted to a murder trial confession at his own trial, it was the first time ever in Southern history, but Frank continued to claim he was innocent despite his dumbfounding revelation.
Be sure to read the abridged final closing statements of State’s prosecution team leader, the Solicitor General, Hugh Manson Dorsey and his associate, Frank Arthur Hooper, in American State Trials Volume X (10) 1918 by John Davison Lawson LLD, for their unique take on the Leo Frank trial testimony and evidence. One should also read the really long-winded unabridged closing arguments of Hugh Manson Dorsey published in 1914 as ‘The Argument of Hugh M. Dorsey’ (available on archive.org).
Firebrand Tom E. Watson
Many would argue the best post-trial analysis of the Leo Frank murder confession is articulated by the criminal defense lawyer, populist and genius Tom Edward Watson, in his Watson’s Magazine, January, March, August, September and October of 1915, and his weekly The Jeffersonian newspaper in specific issues during the years of 1914, 1915, 1916, and 1917, though his best works on the Leo Frank Trial are found in the Watson’s Magazine issues of August, September and October 1915.
Appeals 1913 to 1915
Numerous half-baked frivolous appeals petitions were made by the Leo Frank Legal Defense Team to the Georgia Superior Court, Georgia Supreme Court, US Federal District Court, and United States Supreme Court, all appeals were denied after careful review, with lengthy decisions written and rendered (see: Leo Frank Appeals 1913, 1914, 1915). In April of 1915, Leo Frank had exhausted all of his court appeals, so he went back to his lawyer Luther Rosser, asking him to request a commutation from his law partner, Governor Slaton.
Commutation June 21, 1915
The departing Governor of Georgia, John M. Slaton, decided to commute the death sentence of his own client, Leo Frank at the 11th hour, to life in prison on June 21, 1915, just days before the end of his last term as Governor. It was an act of political suicide, but it didn’t matter, as Slaton was leaving office anyway on June 26, 1915, and he was likely rewarded handsomely behind the scenes in other ways. Slaton left Georgia and went on a tour of the United States with a briefcase full of greenbacks.
The 12oo-strong mob formed to angrily protest the commutation, because it was a gross conflict of interest, not because of anti-Semitism. Rarely if ever mentioned by Leo-Frank partisans is the connection between Leo Frank’s commutation and the fact Governor John M. Slaton was part-owner of the law firm that represented Leo Frank at his trial and during his appeals. The lawfirm was called Rosser, Brandon, ‘Slaton’ and Phillips (the ‘Slaton’ was Governor John M. Slaton).
Leo Frank’s Prison “Shanking,” July 17, 1915
One month after the commutation of Leo Frank got shanked in prison by a fellow inmate named William Creen, who used a 7 inch butcher knife to slash the left side of Leo Frank’s throat. To add anti-Semitic psychological warfare to the incident, rumors began circulating the knife had been used for slaughtering hogs. Leo Frank barely survived the attack, thanks to inmate doctors who came to his aid in the nick of time and stitched him up. The tender wound was slow to heal in the hot & humid summer of 1915.
One month after the shanking and almost 2 months after Leo Frank received his controversial clemency, a well organized group of about 25 to 35 men, many of whom were from Georgia’s highest strata of politics, law and society, organized themselves into the ‘Knights of Mary Phagan’. This newly formed group of Georgia’s elites, sought to fulfill the conviction of the Jury and death sentence judgment ratified by Judge Leonard Strickland Roan. From their point of view, this band of men sought to deliver righteous retribution in the form of “Southern-Style Vigilante Justice”, which is called by the mainstream “lynching.”
After more than 2 months of careful planning, Leo Frank was kidnapped from the minimum-security Milledgeville prison on the evening of Monday, August 16, 1915, at 10 p.m., then driven all through the night for eight hours and lynched in the early hours of August 17, 1915, from an oak tree’s sturdy branch in Marietta.
Post Lynching, August 17, 1915
Once word got out about the lynching, Leo Frank’s dangling body became a public spectacle, photographs were taken and the pictures of Leo Franks lifeless suspended body, gently twirling in the breeze, became popular post cards and allegedly people snatched pieces of his shirt, transforming them into memorabilia. Leo Frank was cut down and one hot-headed yahoo started stomping on his face and chest and other people had to pull him away, calm the savage down and vote him out.
How the Most Definitive Book on the Leo Frank Case was Born
The book ‘The Murder of Little Mary Phagan’ is written by the namesake of the murder victim, Mary Phagan’s great niece named Mary Phagan Kean. When Phagan Kean was 13 years old, she discovered her given name was no mere accident or coincidence. When people heard her name, they started asking her questions about whether she was related to the famous little Mary Phagan who had been murdered long ago by Leo Frank on Confederate Memorial Day, Saturday, April 26, 1913.
Phagan-Kean would learn a startling secret when people started asking her questions about her curious name, so she asked her family if she was somehow connected to the Mary Phagan who was murdered so long ago in the National Pencil Factory. When her family revealed the truth about her blood relation, she immediately became insatiably interested in learning about the investigation, and its aftermath.
Instantly becoming a life long student of the case at age 13, Phagan-Kean has since devoted every free moment of her life studying volumes of legal documents, and reading every surviving newspaper account surrounding the rape and strangulation of her great aunt, 13 year old Mary Anne Phagan (1899 to 1913) and the biography of Leo Max Frank (1884 to 1915).
Leo Frank was the President of the 500 member Atlanta Chapter of B’nai B’rith beginning in 1912, and even after his conviction was unanimously re-elected again in 1913, until his term expired in 1914. As a result of his conviction, the case turned into a national scandal and eventually evolved into a sensational cause celebre. For the Jewish Community, Leo Frank’s conviction, would become the critical mass of “anti-Semitism” catalyzing the formation of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, born in October, 1913, or ADL (www.ADL.org) for short. The lynching of Leo Frank sparked the revival of the defunct and nativist ethnic nationalist Ku Klux Klan (KKK) on November 24, 1915.
The KKK considers themselves the “immune system of the United States of America”, providing an immunal White blood cell response to what they perceived as an infection of the United States of America, as a host-body, by a collectively organized Jewish virus/parasite community. The ADL considers itself on the other hand, the foremost civil rights group in America and the world, defending Jews and Israel against Anti-Semitism.
Jewish Scholars overwhelmingly produced the lion share of all the written “persecution and victim-centric” books, articles, web sites, scripts, video, media, songs, broadway plays and texts about the subject of Leo Frank and Mary Phagan, and almost unanimously allege the investigation, trial, and conviction of Frank where part of a widespread Antisemitic Gentile Sponsored Conspiracy, a text book case of Anti-Semitism; the railroading, and framing of an innocent Northern Jewish Man because of Gentile anti-Jewish racism, prejudice and religious hatred. Leo Frank partisan books often leave out volumes of the relevant facts, evidence and testimony concerning the Leo Frank case, dishonestly spinning the facts convenient to creating doubt about Leo Franks guilty verdict.
If you have any doubts about Leo Frank’s guilt study the brief of evidence and sift it!
1982 and 1983: The Alonzo Mann Media Circus
In 1982, Alonzo Mann, a lonely, broke and senile octogenarian, who also happened to be the former office boy of Leo Frank for three weeks in April, 1913, came forward at the behest of the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, with a fantastic tall tale about what he saw on April 26, 1913 at noon.
1982 was about 69 years after the murder of Mary Phagan and trial of Leo M. Frank for her murder. Alonzo “Lonnie” Mann went public with his story claiming he had withheld information from the Leo M. Frank legal defense team, police, Solicitor General Hugh M. Dorsey, the Judge Leonard Strickland Roan, the Jury of 12 White men, Appeals Courts, Slaton’s Commutation hearing and seven decades of people.
Alonzo Mann said that, he went back to the National Pencil Company Factory five minutes after he left it at noon on April 26, 1913, and saw the Negro Janitor Jim Conley, carrying the body of Mary Phagan on his shoulder, and Jim Conley reached out his hand for Alonzo Mann and said to the young boy, “if you tell anyone , I will kill you”. Alonzo Mann, claimed he ran home and told his family and his mother told him not to tell anyone.
These statements given by Alonzo Mann in the 1980′s made no sense and came off as a desperate web of lies according to many people who heard his newfangled claims.
First, why would White parents in a White racial separatist Georgia of 1913, tell their White son not to tell the police about a “murdering”, and thus ostensibly guilty black janitor Jim Conley, with the result being an “innocent” clean cut White boss, Leo Frank, who gave their son a highly prized job, wrongfully going to gallows? Instead of a guilty Negro?
Second, why would White parents allow their son to report to work on Monday Morning, April 28, 1913, right after their son was threatened with death on Saturday April 26, 1913? Alonzo Mann Reported for work Monday morning, April 28, 1913 when all the forensic revelations were made at the National Pencil Company and he too witnessed them.
Third, if Alonzo Mann admitted in 1982 he lied under oath at the Leo Frank trial in 1913 (about leaving at 11:30 am instead of noon), what’s not to say he wasn’t lying again in 1982 / 1983, when he said he came back at noon. 70 years after the trial, he was asked why he came back, and he said it was about a baseball bet he made with Schiff, but everyone knew Herbert Schiff was not meant to come to work that day – including Herbert Schiff who hinted as such at the trial.
fourth Alonzo Mann said he came back to the factory at 12:05pm, this was about the time Monteen Stover said she came to the factory, how come Monteen Stover didn’t walkin on this horrifying scene either?
The ADL tried to use the Alonzo Mann Affair to get a posthumous pardon at first in 1982-1983, but it failed. Three long years of political machinations, back room wheeling and dealing continued until a second attempt was made.
1986: Second Attempt Successful
In 1986, pressure from the powerful Jewish community, Jewish groups and ADL (Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith), resulted in the highly political March 11, 1986 posthumous pardon of Leo Frank without exoneration.
There was only one problem with the highly political pardon of Leo Frank, because Alonzo Mann had died March 19, 1985 and no one could question him about the incident. The politically corrupt board forgave Leo Frank with a pardon, but kept Leo Frank’s GUILT intact and thus did not disturb the verdict of the Leo Frank Trial Judge and Jury.
On March 11, 1986, a pardon without exoneration of guilt was issued by the board:
Without attempting to address the question of guilt or innocence, and in recognition of the State’s failure to protect the person of Leo M. Frank and thereby preserve his opportunity for continued legal appeal of his conviction, and in recognition of the State’s failure to bring his killers to justice, and as an effort to heal old wounds, the State Board of Pardons and Paroles, in compliance with its Constitutional and statutory authority, hereby grants to Leo M. Frank a Pardon.
A most grotesque symbol of ADL political power just unraveled.
Even with the posthumous pardon, it was specified the guilt of Leo M. Frank remains permanently intact, because his official conviction was not changed, disturbed or tampered with from 1913 to 1986. As of March 11, 1986, Leo M. Frank remains guilty in the eyes of Black Letter and Settled Law forever more, though he was forgiven of his crime by the board, he was not forgiven by the public that detests pedophile-rapists and child killers.
A number of fictionalized media dramatizations and treatments have been made about the case in the form of miniseries, Broadway plays, Hollywood dramas, political docudramas, video blogs, and songs, conducted across the international media landscape, all mostly created by Jews making a mockery of the life of a little Christian girl, Mary Phagan, who is used as nothing more than a plot device to launch Leo Frank’s persecution hoax at the hands of evil Gentiles.
Attempts for more than 100 years are continually being launched to idealize and rehabilitate the image of Leo Frank as an innocent and stoic Jewish victim of anti-Semitism.
The efforts to transfigure Leo Frank from a perverted pedophile rapist and strangler into a holy Jewish religious martyr of collective Gentile prejudice has continued unchallenged.
The blood libel against the Leo Frank prosecution team, European-Americans and people who think Leo Frank is guilty, continues to this day by the organized Jewish community. The Leo Frank Case is a Jewish-Gentile conflict that has been smoldering for 100 years and continues to inflame both sides.
Three Leo M. Frank Admissions Equivalent to Murder Confessions From the 1913 Brief of Evidence
1. Jim Conley, Saturday, April 26, 1913, circa noon to 1:00 PM (See Jim Conley affidavits and trial testimony in the brief of evidence (1913) and Georgia supreme court case file about Leo Frank (1913, 1914).
2. Lucille Selig Frank, Saturday Late Evening, April 26, 1913, 10:30 PM (See State’s Exhibit J, Brief of Evidence, 1913)
3. The Public, Monday, August 18, 1913, (Leo Frank’s four hour unsworn trial statement, August 18, Brief of Evidence, 1913). Leo Frank’s explanation on the witness stand to the trial jury, why Monteen Stover had found his office was empty between 12:05pm and 12:10pm on April 26, 1913, with an unconscious bathroom visit: (Leo Frank Trial Brief of Evidence, 1913, p. 186).
The Fourth Leo Frank Admission that Amounted to an authorized Jailhouse Murder Confession Published in the Atlanta Constitution
4. Leo Frank confirmed his August 18, 1913, murder trial bathroom admission-confession in the March 9, 1914, issue of the Atlanta Constitution.
Leo Frank’s defenders won’t ever dare to mention the “unconscious” bathroom murder trial confession that Leo Frank made on the witness stand when he was giving his four hour unsworn statement at the trial on Monday afternoon, August 18, 1913, between 2:15pm and 6:00pm. Thoughtful and analytical interpretations of the statement Leo Frank made to counter Monteen Stover’s testimony are always left out of most Leo Frank revisionist books, even though it proves Leo Frank’s guilt indisputably when juxtaposed with State’s Exhibit B and Jim Conley testimony about finding Mary Phagan dead in the metalroom bathroom (see: State’s Exhibit A, item #9), at the behest of Leo Frank (see: Leo Frank’s trial statement, Monteen Stover’s trial testimony, State’s Exhibit B, Jim Conley’s trial testimony and affidavits, brief of evidence, 1913).
Leo Frank is the only person in early 20th century US history to make what amounted to a murder confession at his own trial, leaving most people gobsmacked by it.
See: The final closing arguments of Hugh M. Dorsey, Frank Arthur Hooper (American State Trials, Volume X, 1918, John D. Lawson) and Tom Watson’s analysis of Leo Frank’s trial admission amounting to a murder confession (Watson Magazine, September, 1915).
Be sure to study, the Leo Frank Trial Brief of Evidence, 1913, and the 1,800 page Leo M. Frank Georgia Supreme Court Case File (1913, 1914).

Subject: Justice for little Mary Anne Phagan in this Book
God Bless You, 14-yr-old little Mary Phagan. I hope you can finally rest in peace with the truth being known to everybody in the years exceeding 2013. Phagan deserves the right to sleep without all the misinformation about Frank being innocent. Please stop spreading blood-libel accusations that Frank was framed and lynched because of antisemitism. Any 21st-century jury would have convicted Frank based on the testimony and exhibits. Governor Slaton disqualified himself because his law firm represented Leo Frank.

Subject: Required Reading on Leo Frank and Mary Phagan
The beginning section of this book was a bit slow and difficult to get through. I almost put the book down for good, but glad I didn’t because once into the meat and substance of the book, it was smooth sailing and well worth reading from cover to cover! There seems to be a lot of people writing hate reviews about the book on Amazon.com, but thankfully the owner of this out of print book made it available free online.
What is very interesting and seldom talked about is that Leo Frank made a statement to the court that essentially amounted to a murder confession. Leo Frank essentially admitted to murdering Mary Phagan at his trial when he mounted the witness stand and told the Jury he might have “unconsciously” gone to the bathroom in the metal room during the time Monteen Stover waited in his empty office from 12:05 to 12:10, April 26, 1913. He formerly told the police Mary Phagan was with him in his office during this exact time. The State of Georgia’s prosecution built its case around the theory Leo Frank murdered Mary Phagan in the metal room between 12:05 p.m. and 12:10 p.m.
It was a shocking metal-room admission coming from Leo Frank who denied knowing his employee Mary Phagan, but had been her boss for 1 year (spring of 1912 to 1913) and passed by her work station each day on his way to the bathroom in the metal room.
For the best interpretations of the August 18, 1913, Leo Frank murder trial confession, you can read the closing arguments of State prosecution lawyers Frank Arthur Hooper and Hugh M. Dorsey in American State Trials Volume X 1918 by John D. Lawson LLD.
However, Tom Watson’s post-trial analysis of the Leo Frank murder trial confession is the most enjoyable to read in his August and September Watson’s Magazine (1915). It drives Leo Frank partisans to a foaming-at-the-mouth frenzy, and you can’t help but enjoy their squirming, cheesy excuses and screeching with utter delight.
The journey Mary Phagan Kean went through to discover the facts and circumstances surrounding the case was very interesting and captivating to say the least. Having read the other books on this particular murder case, this book, I agree is probably the most even-handed on the subject.
I highly recommend this book!
Be sure to read it and the other books listed above as well.
Oh My God! Were their really four Leo Frank admissions that amounted to murder confessions?
Within the 318 page official legal records of the Leo M. Frank 1913 trial brief of evidence is testimony and affidavits revealing Leo Frank confessed to murdering Mary Phagan three times, though he would deny all three.
In the Atlanta Constitution of March 9, 1914, Leo Frank would make a fourth admission that amounted to a murder confession. This was two days after Judge Benjamin Hill resentenced Leo Frank to hang by the neck until dead, scheduled on his 30th birthday, April 17, 1914.
Leo Frank Admission Number Three that Amounted to a Murder Trial Confession: August 18, 1913, Fulton County Superior Courthouse During the Leo Frank Trial
The third Leo Frank murder confession occurred on August 18, 1913, when Leo Frank mounted the witness stand at his trial (July 28 to August 26) to make a 4 hour unsworn statement. He told the packed courtroom, Judge and Jury – in response to Monteen Stover testifying that his office had been empty on April 26, 1913, from 12:05 p.m. to 12:10 p.m. – Leo Frank stated he might have “unconsciously” gone to the bathroom in the metal room. It was the spine-chilling crescendo of the trial, because Leo Frank had stated to the Atlanta police on Monday, April 28, 1913, Mary Phagan had arrived in his office between 12:05 p.m. and 12:10 p.m., Maybe 12:07 p.m. on Confederate Memorial Day, Saturday, April 26, 1913 (State’s Exhibit B).
It was a slam-dunk for the State’s prosecution, because Solicitor General Hugh M. Dorsey and his legal team had spent 29 days during the trial trying to prove to the Jury that Leo Frank murdered Mary Phagan in the second floor metal room between 12:05 p.m. and 12:10 p.m. on April 26, 1913.
Leo Frank’s Alleged Murder Confession Number One: April 26, 1913, Noon Hour
Leo Frank’s alleged murder confession number one was made to Jim Conley, when Leo Frank told him he had tried to have sex with Mary Phagan and she refused him, and as a result of rejecting him, he assaulted her.
Mary Phagan’s bloody hair was discovered on Monday, April 28, 1913, at 6:35 A.M. tangled on the handle of a bench lathe in the second floor metal room by Robert P. Barret, along with a five-inch-wide blood stain on the floor in front of the girls’ dressing room. (Leo Frank Brief of Evidence, 1913)
Leo Frank Murder Confession Number Two: April 26, 1913 at 68 East Georgia Avenue, the Selig Residece
Leo Frank confessed murdering Mary Phagan to his wife Lucille Selig Frank on the evening of April 26, 1913 at 10:30 P.M. Leo Frank said he didn’t know why he would murder and asked his wife for his pistol so he could shoot himself. Lucille told her family and cook Minola McKnight about what happened. (State’s Exhibit J, June 3rd, 1913)
On April 23, 1957, when Lucille Selig Frank died of heart failure (= a broken heart?), her last will and testament, notarized and registered with the local government in Atlanta in 1954, requested that she be cremated (Last Will and Testament of Lucille S. Frank, 1954). The grave plot to the immediate left of Leo M. Frank in the Mount Carmel Cemetery, had been reserved for Lucille Selig Frank, but to this day it remains empty. Not even Lucille’s ashes are there. They were buried in the Oakland cemetery in Atlanta between her parent’s headstones.
Those are the three Leo Frank murder confessions within the official record, but there is one more.
Leo Frank Murder Confession Number Four Went Public: March 9, 1914, Atlanta Constitution
Leo Frank gave a jailhouse interview to an Atlanta Constitution journalist and it was published on March 9, 1914. Leo Frank’s statements published in the Atlanta Constitution confirmed and supported his August 18, 1913, trial statement admission, that amounted to a murder trial confession.
So why does the ADL still champion this ineffable piece of manure?
1) According to the Talmud, Jews have a right to do whatever they want to goyim. So for Jews, what Frank did was not even wrong, only getting caught. That was “bad for the Jews.”
2) Sticking up for Frank shows both Jews and goyim the power of Jewish solidarity and clout. This is a demonstration of Jewish might to inspire fear — certainly bribing a governor shows power — and it is the public display of in-group bonding, right or wrong. Jews call themselves “The Tribe.”
But we weep for Mary Ann Phagan, and we salute her courage, fighting to the death. We salute District Attorney Hugh Dorsey, and publisher Tom Watson, and (in this case) the justified lynchers, who violated only unjust laws of man for a Higher law from God. And we hail all who have championed her for decades, such as her grand-niece and the comrades behind the gigantic compendium of facts known as
The tomb of 13-year-old Mary, who worked 55 hours a week to support her mother and five siblings, tortured and killed by a B’nai B’rith official.
She is the real victim, as are we all by living in jew world.
On June 25, 1915, a marble slab six feet long was laid over Mary Phagan’s grave in Marietta, one day before Leo Frank was executed by the manly forces of the people.
On it was carved an inscription, written by publisher Tom Watson, now often decorated with toy animals by young and older visitors. It began:
“In this day of fading ideals and disappearing landmarks,
little Mary Phagan’s heroism is an heirloom
than which there is nothing more precious
among the old red hills of Georgia.”
