Determined to Marry Her They Eloped to-This Country and When She Jilted Him and Apparently Helped to Plan His Murder Ho Lost Hope nnd Decided to End His Life Persists In His Declaration That tho Killing Was Accidental. Will Go to Austria. Love for ii woman has mode one long tragedy of many promising lives, but not often has woman brought more sor row and distress Into a life than has been suffered by Frank Rezek, for whom the prison doors swung open tit Philadelphia, Wednesday, Ho wits Im mured behind Its grent walls for six dreary years. He has returned to the city, and yes terduy told the story of his life to a Tribune man, dwelling upon his great love for Alary Kerzac, In which he found the greatest Joy and misery of his life. He proposes to return to Aus tria and begin life anew. Hezek's story Is to the effect that he made three unsuccessful attempts to end his life, first by lying on the rail road track, second by shooting himself and lastly by throwing himself Into the Lackawanna river at Olyplumt. He was arrested for murder, tried, con victed, sentenced to be hanged, re prieved, had sentence commuted to life Imprisonment, served six years In the Eastern penitentiary and was released by the state board of pardons. The emotions he experienced dining tho noiiod In which he ran that gamut would repay study. s Yesterday afternoon. Just as ho fin ished writing a letter to his mother In Ladioch, Austria, liezek, or Frank Perchlen, to use his right name, grant ed nn interview to n Tribune mnn, and In his own way told his most remark able stoiy. WAS IN THi: AHMY. He came hero from Philadelphia Wednesday night and registered at tho Scranton house. Perchlen was born in Laboch, Austria, of respectable par ents, and when he reached the age limit I was drafted Into the army service of his country. His father shortly alter- wards became III, and spent over ?J,000 In securing Frank's release from .ser vice, that he might devote himself to th" service1 of his family. He remained at home three or four years, and dining that time full in love I with Mary Kerzac, a girl of humble parentage, wnoin tne young man's par ents objected to on account of her social standing. The lovers unsolved to elope. They set about to .secure passage to America, their destination being Oly phnnt, Lackawanna county, Pennsyl vania. When Ftank recalled his mili tary experience the thought dawned upon him that he could not leave his own country without a passport. This obstacle was overcome by the girl .securing a passport bearing the name ot Frank Rezek, n man who had already landed in America and sent his passport back to friends In Austria, Under this name Perchlen came to Ametlca. and has since been known as Frank Dezek. Tho couple Intended to visit the girl's sister, Mrs. Frank Kramer, at Olyphant, and after being married here, return to their native land. HAD OTHER PLANS. Mrs. Kramer, who was aware of their coming, had selected a follow namod Tony Horshnlck, as the gill's future husband, and when Mary ar nvcd nt Olyphant, bhe was apprise I ot tho arrangements her sister had made. Perchlen was disheartened at the turn of affairs, and resolved to leave tin girl with her sister and re turn to Austria. At that time he received a letter from home, in which his parents up braided him and cast him adrlit. This del"! mined Frank to remain hero and try to win back the girl of his choice. Mary had by this time become in lluenoed by her sister, and seem.-d anx ious to rid herself of her faithful love., who had slci bleed his nil for her. Perchlen was persistent and when the Krameis and Mary Kerzae saw they could not rid themselves of him, liu says they resolved to resoit to , Jther means. They Invited him to nc , company the girl nnd the Kramers on n visit to friends who icsided up in the mountains from Olyphant. The quartette wns accompanied by I two other men. When some distance away from any houses, Perchlen ob served that one of his male compan ions carded a revolver In his hand. Instantly the plot revealed itself to him. They had d"coynd him into tho mountains to murder him. Ho In stantly dashed away from them. WANTED TO END HIS LIFE. That his sweetheart should jilt him was a blow hard to bear, but that sho should seemingly be a party to a plo: to kill him was more than he could bear, and he diclded to end his own life. Re aching tho Delaware and Hudson railroad, he lay down on the tracks, waiting for a train to como j along and end his miserable e.ltt- uuce. i Fate seemed to mock nt him, for ho waited a long tlmo but no train came and chilled nnd benumbed by tho coli ho returned to his boadlng place, Tho next day ho purchased a revolver and went to Mary Keizae's home to bl 1 her farewell. As hu kissed her good, bye he pulled the revolve! from his pocket nnd placed the point of tliu bar lot underneath his chin. Tho girl gavo a cry of honor and giabbod tho revolver with both hands. During the oxcltenvnt, two shots were tired, ono of which entered Porchlen's chin and the otlver killed tho girl, With tlu .smoking lovolvor lu his hand, tho man ran out of tho houso and down Into tho L'lckawannii ilver, where he sought to drown himself, The wuter was cold, and low, and Perchlen, after dmpplng his revolver Into the river, walked out and was taken In cluuge by men who had fol lowcij him after tho shooting. With out much ceremony ho win hustled to Jail nnd Indicted for murdering tho girl At tho trial, ho says, tho man who had hpf-n assigned to murder him on tho mountain, tcMlfled falsely and his testimony, together with that offered by tho Kramers, secured his conviction, I'erchlfn, or Uezek, was found guil ty of murder In the first degree, and was the II rat man sentenced In til's county to bo hanged. His friends Im mediately set about to secure a new trial, which was refutred. Tho casj wus then carried to tho Supremo cour: nnd the verdict ot tho lowr-r court was sustained. Tho tiny ror the hanging was fixed, but thn governor granted n resplle, nnd tho sentence was suliseauontly commuted to life Imprisonment. He zok won itont to the Eastern peni tentiary, and while there one or the physicians extracted pieces of Ihu but let from rvrclileri'n chin. Ills friends, headed by Edmund Hartl, of this city, brought tho case U tho attention uf the board of pardons, nnd Wednesday the man was given hl.i liberty. After a few days' visit In this city, Frank Perchlen, known lu hli tnry ns- Ho.ok, will return to Austria to begin life over again. BUYING MORE COLLIERIES.

AWFUL TRAGEDY OF ROOM SIXTY-SIX Exciting Scene at the Hotel Irving in the Early Hours of Yes terday Morning. One of tho self-Imposed duties of Fred Welchel, of Klnback it Welchel, proprietors of tho Irving, Is to 'wake the help. Yesterday, on his rounds of the upper iloor, where the servants sleep, he got a bad scare. A large room, No. CO, in which the six dining loini girls were wont to sleep, failed to give back a response to his knocking-. Kicks followed raps, and calls followed kicks, but yet no response. "Hy golly, I'll bet it was something they ate," said Air. Welchel, excitedly, to himself, as he wlthdiew his no.se from a scent for gas at the keyhole. Alore raps and kicks anil calls, but stil no i espouse liom fit!, though every body else in tho house was aroused. There was no transom, the master key wouldn't work, and the only course left was to burst in the door. The door was burst open by a portly drummer with one bump of his mas sive shotildets. Tliete was a timidity, even among the stoutest hearted of the men, about facing the sorry sight they felt must be ptesentod when the gas was lit. Only a few of them crosied the threshold. The others were con lent to stand In the doorway or peep over the shoulders of those who wco In front. The women stood back and wrung their hands and discussed emetic?. The gas was dually llsrhted. There was a moment of deep silence, and then some one said "Huh." The room was vacant. The beds had not been disturbed, and everything except the furniture had been removed. There wasn't as much as a curling paper in sight. "I know," said Mr. Welchel, pushing through tho crowd. When ery angry, Mr. Welchel docs not speak slowlv or distinctly, and consequently what seemed to, the listeners to be; a cuss word was very likely nothing moie or less than a case of inlslnterpietatlon. Air. Welchel did not satisfy the curi osity of the guests. "Never you mind. I know what's the matter," was about all the satisfaction they could get. However, they learned what was the matter. The elevator boy, who knows everything In, about or concerning u hotel, put them on. Tho girls weie on strike. Some time ago they protected against the housekeeper and she was dis charged. Wednesday she was leln stated. After repnltlng to their room tho dining room git Is resolved to quit, and, to make the strike more elfective, quit quietly. They packed up their be longings In satchels and slid out, ono by one, during tho lonely hours of the night, taking their exit by way of tho kitchen to escape the attention of tho night cleik. Yesterday they engaged Attorney Frank E. Roylo to collect tho ten day.s' wages they claim Is owing them. liy doubling up the other help and taking a hand themselves, the pro prietors managed to get along fairly well with yesterday's big- iut.li. Today they expect to have the strikers' places filled with other glils. Costs Little. Young men should realize that It costs less to spend their oenIngs at tho Scranton Business College night school than it does to spend them on the stieet.
