Tho lure nutcr hall was hidden under

Into tho armory liall were ruling open
a scone of beauty presented lt?elf
which almost dazzled the eye of tho
beholder. At the fur end were arranged
the two forest scenes from the Lyceum
theatre, and massed artistically In
front of these were potted plants,
Palms and ferns, which ndtted to the
pretty sylvan nlr, furnished by the Im
provldcd woodland.
The ra'fters of tho roof were Invisible
and In their place were masses of lllmy,
gauzy coverings of yellow, pink, rose
and other hues. Soft-tinted, beautiful
festoons and bows of fine silken ma
terial ornamented tho wnlls, and tilts
general effect was one that trans
formed tho big, cheerless barracks Into
an pretty a ballroom as fastidious mor

Dauoi's orchestia discoursed tho
Pleasing music to which the young
warriors, nttlrod lu dress uniform,

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.
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
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
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.
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

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
Tho tiny ror the hanging was fixed,
but thn governor granted n resplle,
nnd tho sentence was suliseauontly

nnd Wednesday the man was given hl.i

city, Frank Perchlen, known lu hli

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
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
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
"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

and, to make the strike more elfective,

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.
