A BEAUTY SUICIDED DEATH OF BARONESS AFTER AN AFFRAY. Princely Ylsltor at Castle Paid Too Great Attention .to Wife, Baron Sald^ • (By the Associated Press) * Vienna, June 5.—^A shooting affray between .two noblemen, one of them her husband has culminated is the suicide of the beautiful Baroness Klinger in the baronial castle at Raab, lower Austria. The Russian prince, Cyril Vladimir Orloff. and Baron Klinger were the participants in the shooting, and from reports received here the affair was the culmination of objections by the baron to allegedly undue attention paid to his wife by the prince, who was a visitor at the castle. Advices from Raab say, that both the baron and the prince were in a serious condition. ~ " ' The high. '.social position of the actoVs in the cragedy .faad resulted in every possiWe exertion to keep the details of the affair from.the public. Prince Orloff, who Is twenty-two, met;the baroness at Merano; Italy, last "summer and became infatuated. When she returned home he made a visit to the castle. Returning there again on.Wednesday of this week, he was told that the baron was hunting in the forest, and followed him. According to the police account, the prince asked the baron to surrender his wife, as he wished to marry her. The baroq ordered the prince away, whereupon the latter drew a gun and fired. The 'baron, wounded in the lung, raised his shot'gun and fired, shattering the prince's right arm. The men were removed to the hospital. Gendarmes reported the case to the district judge, who summoned the baroness to court Thursday to give evidence. The baroness said she vould not appear in court, retired^to her bedroom and next morning was found dead, shot through the temple. She leaves three children, aged nine, seven and three. An' uzrconflrmsd: reiwrt has it that Orloff- and Klinger went to the forest ptirposely to fight a duel. The Vienna police say they, believe Prince Orloff is really Baroa Orloff.
