Another in our series of new transcriptions of contemporary articles on the Leo Frank case.
August 14th, 1913
Bending his efforts to break down the testimony of Lemmie Quinn, foreman of the metal room, Solicitor Dorsey subjected the witness to a severe grilling when court reconvened at 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon.
When Quinn resumed the stand he was still under direct examination by the defense. In answer to Attorney Arnold he declared that he was still an employee of the National Pencil factory.
Solicitor Dorsey began cross-examination.
“When was it these men bled on the floor of the metal room?”
“About a year ago,” Quinn replied.
“What were their names?”
“I remember that C. P. Gilbert, who lives on Jones street, was one. I don’t remember the name of the other.”
“You noticed the spots on the floor of the dressing room on Monday after the murder?”
“Yes, it looked like blood.”
“What is the difference between those spots and the spots made by Gilbert’s bleeding?”
“The spots by the dressing room were darker.”
“Could gasoline have caused that.”
“I don’t know.”
“Where were you at noon on April 26?”
“At the factory.”
