New York, Aug. 2!). A Paris dis
patch bat: Mrs. W. K. Vanderbilt has
uudi'r consideration the advisability of
instituting proceedings for divorce.
The dillieulties, it is said, nearly
reached a e.itnaxsome months ago, when
the party on the yacht Valiant in the
Li ed it era nea:i separated.
About ten wee its ago Cornelius Van
derbilt went to London to atop further
proceedings, but was unsuccessf ul.
.Mrs. Vh.kI rbilt is represented by Col
onel William Jay of .New York, who is
now in Germany.
A proposition is said to have been
mad.) by Mrs. Vanderbilt for a separa
tion on the b tsis of an annual allowance
of $.100,000, the custody of her children,
and the possession of three houses at
Newport, Jal.p and in New York.
It is said t.iat Mr. Vanderbilt olfered
no objection but would only consent to
terms less literal than those asked by
Mrs. Vanderbili. Sue has refused his
proposition and further discussion is
piontponed until th arrival of Colonel
Jay m Paris.
Mr. Vanderbilt yesterday declined to
discuss the matter- further than to say
that lie had instituted uo proceedings
iu divorce.
HAS UK IN TIJK TA IK OF N t'AX I'OliT.
InTeUt-ilie of the Vanderbilts Kxtend Over
Two 1 ears.
Nkwi'Ort. It. I., Aug.29. The talk of
the domestic inlelicities of Mr. and Mrs.
Win. K. Vanderbilt, at Newport, extends
over a period of two years or more and
us far back as that time the probability
of a separation waa the gossip of the
place. Two summers atro Win. K. Van
derbilt turn jd up at Newport on 1ns
yacht Alva, and later was on it when it
was run down and sunk iu Vineyard
Bound.
A few months nfter this Mr. Vander
bilt, who is an enthusiastic yachtsman,
went to England, where he remained
while his present yacht, the Valium, was
being built. Last summer at Newport
the chatter was incessant. When Mr.
Vanderbilt returned to his new yacht,
gossip was silenced by the announcement
of plans for a long trip with Mis. Van
derbilt and other well known persons in
the party.
Curious stories have reached here of
quarrels aboard the yacht, which are
Haiti to have resulted iu tiie abandonment
of the cruise at an early stage and the
entire breaking up of the party.
Mrs. Vancerbilt has told her friends,
and is said to have written to them also,
that shu had no intention of returning to
Newport far -ear-, and that the marble
house which co-jt $1,000,000 to build and
which her htishatid settled on her, would
remain close i during that time. It was
a matter uf general surprise yesterday
to friends of the Vanderbilt family who
happened to lie in town that the domes
tic troubles of William K. Vanderbilt
and his wife should have reached a point
where a judicial separation becomes itn
m iuent.
It has been no secret for some time
that trouble has teen brewing. .Mr.
Depew first beard of it when the Debs
crisis was at its height iu Chicago and he
wanted to hurry to Europe.
When the Pullman stri ko wiig practi
cally over he sailed and until word was
received yesterday to the contrary it was
believed he had succeeded iu keeping
the Vanderbilt family linen out of the
public wash.
Cornelius Vanderbilt was not in town
last night. It was said at his residence
he had left Newport and might sail for
Liverpool W - .1 n e s d ay.
Mrs. Wm. fv. Vauderbilt is a southern
woman of the family of Smiths, of Mo
bile, Ala., who are prouder of their
blood than ti e Vanderbilts of their mil
lions. She a haudsome woman, with
beautiful golien hair and large blue gray
eyes, and although she is exceptionally
exclusive, those who know her say she
is gracious a id charming to thooe whom
Bhe favors w.th her friendship.
.Mr. Vanderbilt, it is said, built the
magnificent steam yacht Valiant to re
place the wrecked Alva, chiefly to please
her, as she is fond of vacating, and it
wai to gratify another ot her desires for
pleasure that the famous white marble
palace on tins cliffs at Newport was built.
Never Tells His 1'rivate Affairs.
Albany, N. Y., Aug. 29. Joseph H.
Choate of New York, president of the
const itutional convention was asked to
day if there was any truth in the report
that he had been retained to prosecute a
suit for divorce which it is alleged Mrs.
AV. K. Varidt rbilt will institute, refused
either to confirm or deny the statement,
raying: "I never tell my private affairs
to th press."
Eli 11. Roc t denied that he had been
re'ained by any one of the Vanderbilts
in divorce proceedings.
Six Ottawa people were hurt in the
accident at I'airiuount park, Katuas City.
TIIE WEEK'S WEATHER.
It lla-s Keen Damp SoullivTPst anil Fairly
Agreeable Jlut 9t 1-1 Today.
The thermometer is resuming its old
time activity which has not been asserted
so vigorously for several weeks. The
thermometer attained 99 degrees on
the street level today, and 97 degrees at
the observing station. The prospect is
that tomorrow will be equally as hot.
The weekly crop bulletin by Observer
Jennings has been issue 1, as follows:
"Conditions An abuudance of rain has
fallen iu the extreme southwestern coun
ties, with light rains through the remain
der of the western division. Little or no
rain ha3 occurred in the middle division,
while in the e is ern generally fair to good
rains have fallen south of the Kaw, with
light to fair rains north. The raiufall
amounts to two inches and over in .Bour
bon, Crawford and Cherokee. 'I he tem
perature has averaged 5 deg. above nor
mal daily, while the sunshine has been
less than the average, owing to the
smoky condition of the atmosphere.
"Results The line rains in the south
west have improved pastures and late
crops very much, and fall plowing has
commenced. In the middle division the
conditions have not improved. In the
eastern division there has been an im
provement, slight in some parts, but de
cided in Anderson, Liin and Bourbon
while in Crawford and Cherokee where
the season has been favorable, the crop
conditions are much above the averatre.
Corn is being very generally cut and
Bhocked. Haying is practically done
and the crop is light.. Apples slill con
tinue falling badly, and are being ripened
by the dry weather, which leaves them
small; grapes and tomatoes likewise.
In Cherokee, where the crops are fine,
tomatoes are selling for twenty cents per
bushel."
CALLED PULLMAN NAMES.
Witnesses Tell What Howard Said, and
Cumin ission Adjoin lis.
Chicago, Aug1. 29. The strike com
mission completed its examination of
witnesses today, and adjourned until to
morrow. At that time an opportunity
will be given for the introduction of
rebuttal evidence, but it is thought proba
ble that more testimony will be heard. The
witnesses today were residents of Blue
Island, where much of the rioting oc
curred. But few of them gave testimony
of important character.
Fuller, the Rock Island airent at Blue
Island, .-.aid thai he hnd attended a meet
ing at which Vice-President Howard, of
the A. It Uncalled George M. Pullman
vile names. "Howard said Pullman
should be hanged," said the witness, "and
declared that he would help to do the job
if somebody would uiake the motion."
II. 1L Saunders, a merchant, said he
had heard that Howard had made simi
lar remarks at a meeting of strikers.
Samiders also swore tiiat Howard had
udvised the men to "kill .any ucab that
tries- to go to work in the strikers'
places.'"
Other witnesses testified in a similar
strain, and about forty men were ex
amined. The majority of those called
declared that they knew notuing about
the strike, an J were excused.

Tub oifer of o.OJJ weight for age, at

refused to concede an inch and Poxhall

It is believed, however, that the diffi

How- Measures Are Passed in
New Orleans.
V'ew Orleans, Aug. 29. Councilman
! Doudoussat, who is already under in
dictment, was caught this morning in the
. act of taking a bribe to influence his
vote in the council and was immediately
i arrested. Officers of the law and others
i were witnesses of the crime.
! Charles Sherman has been trying for
i some time to get an ordinance through
j the council, but it became evident to him
i that he would be unable to do so, unless
i he was able to "grease the way."
j He opened up negotiations with
' Doudoussat and made the latter an offer
for his vote, but Doudoussat thought the
' amount first offered too small aud held
j out for more. bherman made au agree
ment to meet Doudoussat this morning
in a saloon at the corner of Tieme and
Bayou roads to close the bargain.
bherman was present ou time and
Doudoussat also turned up at the hour
agreed upon, i he men entered into con
versation aud after some tulk came to
an agreement as to the amount
of Doud jtissat's vote which was
fixed at $10 i, Sherman was provided
with the money and immediately pulled
out a bill and handed it to the council
man, who accepted it aud shoved it into
his pocket.
The two men were then about to part
company when Private Detective O'.ti al
ley and Officer Aucoin who had seen the
whole transaction, having got wind of
the appointment made, stepped up ty
Doudoussat aud placed him under arrest
charging hiin with accepting a bribe.
Loudoussat was taken immediately to
the station and when searched there the
money which had been paid to him by
Sherman, was. fouud in his possession,
it was masked, and Doudoussat had
fallen into a trap. Doudoussat was in
dicted several weeks ago, au i was to
have been tried immediately aftet the
Callahan, case ended, but the prii.cip.il
witness was out of the city and the cae
went over. Doudoussat has a w ife and
eight children.
ANOTHER W0H AN IN IT.
A "Well Known lieauty, Nellie Xeustretter,
Cisei.iutetl Vanilerbilt.
New York, Aug. ly. The statement
in a morning paper that Mrs. W. K. Van
doruiit is about to begin separation pro
ceedings has not, it is alleged, created
surprise iu circles where the relations of
the pair have been known. That they
have not lived harmoniously for the last
l, o yer.rs has been Ihe gossip of fash
ijnai le circles for some time.
'1 ho crisis in their affairs, according to
the Commercial Advertiser of today, was
reached immediately af.er the running
of the grand Prix de Paris, Juue 17 of
this year. "Mr. Vanderbilt," says this
authority, "won 40,ooU francs ou the race,
and almost immediately after receiving
his winnings he was introduced to a wo
man well known lor her beauty and
numerous following among the lights in
swelldom.
"Tiiis person was Nellie Neustretter.
She faciuated the millionaire, aud as an
evidence of his appreciation of her com
pany, he presented her the 40.UJO francs
no opeuiy that several friends saw the
unusual occurrence and remonstrated
with him. The story of how ho fitted up
a magnificent establishment for her in
Paris, aud subsequently gave her a resi
dence at Deanviile, with servants aud
every luxury she desired, is true.
"It shocked and surprised the Ameri
can residents of Paris, but Mr. Vander
bilt was so open ilk his attention as to
puzzle everybody. One of the most
startling things he did was to allow iiie
servants of Nellie Neustretter to wear
the same livery as worn by .u rs. Vander
bilt's servants. This waa noticed aud
commented upon by every person who
saw her aud her equipage in Paris and
Deanviile."
The Vanderbilts according to another
afternoon papier, have lived apart since
lust spring.
Mrs. Vauderbilt has spent the summer
in England, at an estate ou the Thames
near London, which had been rented for
her, wdiile Mr. Vauderbilt has spent his
time in Paris. It is alleged that when,
some time ago, a tentative agreement of
separation was reached, Mr. Vanderbilt
agreed to settle upon his wife $10,

ALL TAKE A VACATION.
Cabinet Officers Ouit Work to Have a
Good Time for u Wliile.
i Washington, Aug. 29. Nearly all the
embers of the cabinet are preparing
tio take advantage of the adjournment of
congress to secure vacations. It is prob
fcfcle that within a very short time
W ashington will be almost .deserted by
the higher officials of the government.
Secretary Herbert is already making a
tour of inspection of the government
navy yards and stations along the north
Atlantic coast.
Secretary Lamont'a respite wi'l be with
his family at Bay view, L. I., atij all that
prevents Secretary Greshain from ar
ranging to temporarily put aside the

for a while at least. He will shortly,
however, take a vacation, which wiil be
spent in part in fishing.
Attorney-General Oluey will spend his
vacatiou in and about Boston. He has
decided that it is too late in the seuson
to open his summer residence at Fal
mouth, Mass., so he will remain quietly
at his Boston home during the three or
four weeks he expects to be absent from
Washington. He hopes to be able to
leave here today or tomorrow.
Secretary Carlisle has made no ar
rangements for a vacation, and it is ex
pected that the administration of the new
tariff act, may keep him for some time
yet.
Secretary Smith will spend ten days or
a fortnight in Georgia. He has just re
turned from a short vacation at Ocean
City, Md, and will leave again early next
week, probably Monday evening, for his

GOULJTCjSOLD
Said to Have Purchased His
Wav In
To the Inner Circles of Hoyal
British Society.
HE LOANED $100,000
To the Prince of Wales, So the
Story Goes.
The Goulds Spending $250,000
a Month in Europe.
London, Aug. 29. When Mr. George
Gould waa asked yesterday regarding the
current report that he had loaned $100,
000 to the Prince of Wales, he declined
to say anything on the subject. Club
gossip, however, asserts that Mr. Gould
has actually loaned this sum, and by so
doing has secured entry for himself and
wife to the innermost circles of British
aristocracy.
tireut Sums Sent Abroad.
New York, Aug. 29. The sums now
being remitted abroad to members of the
Gould family are causing some financiers
to stand aghast. It was stated that the
family went to Europe with a credit of
$ l.OOU.000 in cash at Coutts' bank in Lou
don, and if this be so it is impossible to
understand whj' the Goulds are drawing
from New York now as heavily
as they undoubtedly do. The Gould
accounts have averaged $2o0,0J0 a
month, a dr.iiu which, it ia almost
superfluous to say, even the elevated
railway system of New York can hardly
endure very long. It has been asserted
that the Goulds propose investing in
large lauded properties in England, are
port hardly credited at first, but the
heavy remittances cabled for have occa
sioned some degree of credence among
financiers.
Mrs. Edith Kingdon Gould has herself
become quite a laud owner in New York.
These investments in her name have all
been made during the past two years,
and her realty is stated to be worth a
million dollars at least. There is a story
that the idea of the Gould spurge is to
exchange some of the late Jay's milions
fur a title of which the brilliancy
and the ancient honor must be iu some
degree commensurate with the wealth
involved. It seems that the engagement
of Miss Anna Gould to a comparatively
poor American was not satisfactory to
iliss Edith Kingdon Gould, who is prac
tically the head of the family nov-'. Aud
as New York is a reservoir from which,
her husband can practically draw dollars
at will, the lady has unlimited opportun
ities for carrying out her projects.
Yet there are difficulties even in the
golden path of this lady. Lady Ran
dolph Churchill's set, which appears to
be a clique within that gilded one known
to the world as the Prince of Wales
crowd, has set its face against any new
comers. The consequence - Is that al
though His Highness bestows the light
of his countenance, the rest of the blue
blood is conspicuously somewhere else.
When the prince, appears he appears
alone. The Goulds have not been asked
to a single Thames house, to one "shoot"
in Scotland or a town house in London.
It seems that English society likes a
Ion n wooing.
But patience is a Gould characteristic,
and expense certaiuly need not be a
Gould consideration. Unfortunately Air.
George Gould is not desirous of making1
a lengthy stay abroad, and it is au open
secret that he and his wife do not agree
on this point. The question, therefore,
that is agitating the financiers of New
York has reference to the return of the
missed ones. Will George Gould come
home alone? Will he and the family
come home together? Will he come
soon? Or will they all remain away in
definitely? The answers to these questions cannot
fail to have au important bearing upon
New York's rapid transit problems.

Orders have been received here for the

London, Aug. 29. A dispatch from
