Presents Evidence Showing Indictment of Negro Would Hinder Frank Prosecution.
Here are the important developments of Monday in the Phagan case:
The decision of the Grand Jury of Fulton County not to bring at this time an indictment against James Conley.
The information that there is a strong probability of another postponement of the trial of Leo M. Frank.
The Grand Jury’s refusal to reopen its investigation of the Phagan murder mystery was a decided victory for the Solicitor after that body had overridden his request that no session be called to take up the matter in any of its aspects.
A report that Judge L.S. Roan, who will preside at the Frank trial, had signified his desire that the case be put off until fall, gave rise to the expectation that another postponement will take place, and that the date probably will be set for some week in September.
