Gabor was a temperance man and has never been known to touch any liquor, and when he and Mr. Klsh went into the barroom at 5 o'clock this morning he was apparently in the best of spirits. After Gabor had left the barroom and had been in his room a short, time, Mr. Kish heard a shot and, with others, ran upstairs, where they found Gabor on the floor, with the revolver by his side. He was carried to the office of Dr. G. W. Tyr rell opposite, but died before the door of the office was reached. Dr. Tyrrell said this morning that the bullet passed completely through the heart and that it was remarkable considering that the man had done the shooting himself. On η table in the bartender's room the letter translated above was found written in Hungarian, and from the letter and the deep impressions made by the pencil on the paper, it is be lieved that he was in a highly ner vous state at the time. Jealous of Sweetheart. Gabor and Elond Mondock, daugh ter of John Mondok, of 57 Goodwin street, were at a ball which was in progress in the hall in the rear of the saloon last night. ' Gabor during the evening appeared to be jealous of the girl and seemed uneasy when she danced with other men. Although the report, cannot he confirmed, it was said this morning that Gabor and the girl had a slight disagreement. Gabor has a brother living on Stockton street. After Dr. Tyrrell had examined the body last night he gave it over to Undertaker Thomas F. Burke. As Gabor has many friends, preparations are being made for a large funeral. The police were notified this morn ing and Patrolman McDermott made an examination of the room and Ga bor's effects. He secured the forego ing letter, which was found on a table in the room. The revolver with which Gabor shot himself is in Dr. Tyrrell's possession. SUES FOR PROPERTY. .Joseph Cohen Cluinis ("hurles Nabel Failed to Fulfil Contract.
