DEATH OF FRANK KUNC ACCIDENTAL
Klrtlr, Laborer front Iowa, Aaka tor
Room With Gas Waea Ha
Death by caa of two men In quick suc
cession were reported from different hotels
to the police station Wednesday morn In a.
Sylvester Kirtly, a laborer, whose horns
Is believed to be at Stuart. Ia., went to
the Vnlon hotel. Eleventh and Mason
streets, for his aas, and Frank Kunc, a
cook, picked out a room at the Prague
hotel. Thirteenth and William streets, for
his fatal dose, which Is supposed to have
been Inhaled accidentally and with no In
tention of self-destruction.
Kirtly was found dead in his room at the
Union hotel about I a. m. Wednesday, with
one (as Jet turned on. From several cir
cumstances suiToundlnsT the case it is be
lieved to be a clear case of suicide. Cor
oner Brailey took charge of the body and
will hold an Inquest.
Kirtly went to the hotel about 5 p. m.
Tuesday and asked to be assigned to a
room that was lighted with gas, as he
said he wanted to write some letters. Noth
ing further was seen of him until a cham
bermaid detected the odor of gas coming
from his room Wednesday morning and,
after breaking in the door, the man was
found dead In his bed. Police Surgeon
Harris was called, but the man had evi
dently been dead for hours. The gas Jet
was on at full force and all the windows
and the transom had been tightly closed.
Letters found among hts effects Indicate
that he came from Norfolk, but had a
mother living at Stuart, Ia. Letters were
also .found from elay Pearl Slaughter, 1516
Bluff street, Des Moines. He registered
under a name at the hotel that could not
be deciphered, but gave hla address as
The man was about 46 years of age and
Is evidently a foreigner.
Kaae Death Not Snlclde.
Within an hour after the suicide of
Kirtly was reported to the police the call
was received from the Prague hotel, where
Kunc was found dead In his room about
10 a. m. by John Buresh, a clerk at the
hotel. His room was filled with gas, Sra
the windows and door were tightly closed
and one of the gas Jets turned on to Its
capacity. It Is believed Kunc accidentally
turned on the gas, as no motive for his
taking his life could be assigned by any
who knew him.
Kunc was last seen about 9 p. m. Tues
day, when he left the office of the hotel and
said he Intended to retire. Suspicion was
not aroused when he failed to appear
Wednesday morning until the clerk de
tected the odor of gas in the hall and
traced It to the room occupied by, Kunc.
Ths door was broken In and the police
station notified. Dr. Pugsley responded
and found that the man was beyond human
aid, as he had been dead for several hours.
Kunc was a Bohemian and had lived at
the hotel for four years, but had resided
In that vicinity for over twenty years.
Little is known of his personal affairs and
it is not known if he has any relatives In
the city. Coroner Brailey will hold an in
quest over the body at 4 p. m. Wednesday.
It is believed Kuno was slightly de
mented, as he Jumped out of a second
story window at St. Joseph's hospital about
four years ago when he was at the Institu
