The sensational case of Leo M. Frank is undisputedly Atlanta's and the south's greatest murder mystery of modern years. The story of how little Mary Phagan was foully murdered as she went to get her pay at the National Pencil factory, revolting and horrible as it is in its details, naturally interests every working man and every working woman. The mystery of the crime compels the interest of everyone, who hears about it. "The Mary Phagan murder mystery," however, lost its identity when Leo M. Frank, superintendent of the big factory, where the humble little employe met her death, was arrested and it became the Frank case. In no other murder case in the south has there been such intense interest. It has become more than the ordinary murder mystery; more than the story of a man of position charged with slaying in lustful passion a little factory girl. The reason of the unusual importance of the case is that, it is charged, that Frank is being persecuted because he is a Jew. The story of the fearful crime; of the principal developments of the four months that followed it, and finally the story of the great, trial, where for a solid month the two greatest criminal lawyers in the south battled against the keen wits of Atlanta's solicitor general to save Frank, has been told by press reports. Many of the interesting features about the Frank case, however, have never been printed, because the newspapers dared not embody them in their accounts. This work ends with the conviction of Frank in the superior court of Fulton (Atlanta) county. Trial did not end the case, for immediately after the young defendant was sentenced to pay the death penalty, a motion for a new trial was made, and it will be months, probably years, before he hangs, if he ever does. From the day of his conviction, however, the light for Frank's life became a technical legal battle. The real story ends with the trial and every essential feature is given here. THE AUTHOR. ...
