Turkish Drama in Paris. PRINCESS AND SON STABBED. Paris, Saturday.—A mysterious drama, in which the principal actors were well-known members of the Turkish colony here, occurred in the early hours of this morning in the fashionable Boulevard Haussmann. Two policemen were making their rounds when they heard cries for help proceeding from the second floor of No. 186. They were about to force an entrance when the door opened, and a man in a frock coat, and bareheaded, emerged, holding in his hand a knife dripping with blood. He was stopped by the policemen, and said, Yes, I believe I have killed two persons up there." The police, with the pri- soner, went in and called the concierge, who immediately recognised the latter, exclaiming, Why, it's Monsieur Rechid Mustapha." Going next up to the flat door, which had been barricaded, they found it to be that of Prince Mehemid Ali. In the bedroom, on a bed in a pool of blood, was the nephew of the Prince, Salah el Foad, and beside him his mother, the Princess Fatma, whose face was also covered with blood. In an adjoining bed- room was Prince Mehemid Ali sleeping, all unconscious of the injuries received by his sister and her son in the next roonr. It appears from the police investigation that Rechid Mustapha, the prisoner, is a Turkish medical student of 34, whom 'the Prince had benevolently taken in and provided with bed and board. Last night the Prince asked him to give up his room temporarily ana go to an hotel, and handed him money for the purpose. Mustapha spent the evening in the Latin quarter and returned to the flat early, having a latchkey, and stabbed the Princess Fatma and her son. The latter is a young man of 24. The prisoner admits that he did this without a motive, and declares that he is the victim of an hypnotic suggestion on the part of adoctor, who had previouslymesmerised him on several occasions.—Reuter. Rechid Mustapha, who is an Armenian, says he found the knife in the kitchen, and acted in a moment of blind fury on finding another person in his room. It appears that Musta- pha recently had a quarrel with his rich bene- factor,and was turned out, but was soon taken back. He is subject to epileptic fits, and his mental state will be investigated. Prince Mohamet Ali had invited his sister and nephew, who reside in another quarter of Paris, to drive and sleep at the flat. For this reason he asked Mustapha temporarily to give up his room to Princess Fatma, handing him 40 francs for expenses. Prince Mohamet Ali, having taken a sleeping draught, heard noth- ing, and it was with the greatest difficulty that he was awakened.—Reuter.
