SIGNING THE SETTLEMENT
Marlborough to Eeoolve His Share
of Vanderbilt's Millions To-day.
Several Marriage Are Announced to
Occur Till Eventnjr Whereabout
of Well-Known l'eople.
It Is expected to-day that the marriage
seltlemeut will be signed by Miss Vamler
blltand the DuLe of Marlborough. The hour
aud place of meeting have uot been an
nounced, but it is quite probable that all
those interested will gatl(er in Mr. Vander
bilt's ornce in the Grand Central station.
Three lawyers, representing the Duke of
Marlborough, W. K. Vauderbilt and" Mrs.
Alva Vanderbllt, met In a down-town law
office yesterday to arrange the details of
the settlements- R. Harding Milward rep
resented the duke. Col. William Jay was
there In Mrs. Vanderbilt's Interests, while
William K. Vauderbilt was represented by
None of the lawjers would disclose the
terms of the settlements. After the meet
lug was over, however, it was learned that
tlie statement printed that Miss Vander
bilt's marriage portion from her father
would be $10,000,000 is uot true. One
whose knowledge of the matter gives au
thority to any statement he might make
about it said:
"It Is not possible for tnc to tell yon
Just what the settlements are, but if you
state I hat libs Vanderbilt's (lottery will
not be much abave $0,Oo0,U(Hl tLe state
ment will be near the truth. The in
cline from the dowery the future Duchc-M
of Marlborough will hae the free use of.
The prineipal will be held In trust for her
ehildren by this marriage. There was not
the slightest hitch in coming to an agree
ment. Vth-.tevcr sum Mr. Vanderbllt
might h.ne thought proper to liae set
tliil upon his d.iighter would, I bcliete,
hae been accepted by the represents
the of the duke. As Tor Marlborough's
se-ttlemeiiis upon Alls Vauderbilt, lliey
we-re simply these She gets the maximum
reienue from the Marltiorough e-state, the
largest revenue e-ier recehed by a Duch
ess of Marltiorough."
All the Jewels that the Duke of Marl
borough has given to Miss Vanderbllt,
vlth the exception of her engagement
ring, are lie a. None of the Marlborough
Jewels are in the possession of the nrea-
ent duke. Many jears ago Duchess of J
Aiariuorougn, at l.er death, left them to
he-r daughters. Most of Ihejeweis are now
In the iiosseloii or Lady Spencer.
Miss Vanderbilt's engagement ring con
tains a rubs, which belonged long ago
to an Indian Marajah. Another superb
present from the duke to Miss Vandcr
bilt is a diamond girdle made in Lordon.
The girdle is of solid gold, encrusted with
diamonds, and here and there a splendid
The rumor that none or the Vander
bllt family, except the future Duchess'
father, has been invited to tlie -neddlng
lias been confirmed. It may also be
stated that the relations between Mr.
Vanderbllt and tlie Duke of Marlborough
are most cordial. A friend of both said
that after Miss Vanderbllt has become the
Duchess of Marlborough no guest will re
ceive a warmer welcome at Blenheim than
William K. Vanderbllt.
The niuch-talked-of bridal bouquet, made
from flowers 111 the conse-rvatorles at Blen
heim, has reached New York on the Lu
canin. Mr. Mllward. the Duke of Marl
borough's solicitor, had the bouquet passed
through tlie custom house, and then sent it
to an np town florist's. The duty levied
was $5, the valuation being placed at
The bouquet is composed almost entirely
or white and delicate pink orchids and
roses. It is nearly five reet across the
top. Tlie riowcrs of which It Is made
looked almost as fresh as if they had
Just been cut. It may be decided to break
tip the bouquet, making from It those for
the bride and the bridesmaid.
Newport,. R. I.. Nov. 5. Mr. and Mrs.
Cornelius Vanderbllt will not attend the
wedding of their niece to the Duke of Marl
liorouRh, but will remain at the Breakers
until the latter part of the month.
There Is a young woman In the west

With this last addition she has quite fin

has begun this collection with the idea or
using It on her own wedding dress when
she weds the duke she has advertised for.
Tills strikes me as being a unique and al

"Oh, do nae some soup," urged her
"No, thank you." said her guest; "I never
