Vander bllt, financier, sportsman and head of tho Vanderbllt family, died in his home in Paris at 6 o'clock this even ing. Death was duo to heart disease. Mr. Vandcrbllt had been 111 since April 15 last, when ho was suddenly stricken while attending the races at AuteulL He was ono of tho most ardent racing enthusiasts and sportsmen in France. Mr. Vandcrbllt was 71 years old. Mrs. Vandcrbllt, his sons, Harold and- W. K. Vanderbllt, Jr, and his daughter, tho Duchess of Marlbor ough, were 'with him when the end came. Otllcial announcement of Mr. Van- denbllt's death was contained In a bul letin Issued by his physician, Dr. Ed mund L. Oros, this evening. Dr. Gros said that Mr. Vandenbllt's death was due to heart disease, from which he had suffered for a long time. This disease, he said, was Induced by heavy smoking, Mr. Vanderbllt at ono time having averaged a box of cigars a day. Observing the bad effects of such ex- c&ulve smoking, Dr. Gros forbade Mr. Vanderbllt to smoke more than three cigars a day, one after each meal, and preferably the cheapest kind in order to get the mildest tbhaxco.

"Father Is Improving. We have no cause for alarm." WON RECOGNITION AS RAILROAD EXECUTIVE W. K. Vanderbllt Spent Later Years in Europe. William Klssam Vanderbllt was born Into a heritage of great power. The second son of William II. Vanderbllt end grandson of Commodore Vandcrbllt, he came, upon the death of his brother, Cornollus, Into the control of tho great 'New York Central lines, built up by his grandfather Into one of the strongest railroad properties of the country, and which he himself was to extend over a still wider territory. He was for many years the head of the family, whose name was ln every country of Europe a syno nym for American wealth, power and opportunity. He sailed for France on La Savole early this year to undergo, It was said, medical treatment He was born on the country estate of his father at New Dorp, Staten Island, December iz, i&t j. unnwe most or me men of his family, after the Commodore, he was not a college trained man. His early education was received from pri vate tutors in Now Tork, and later he was sent to Geneva, Switzerland, where he spent several years In the comple tion of his studies. In tho years that followed William K. Vanderbllt aided greatly of course by the opportunities which were his birth right made himself recognized as c railroad man and financier of real abil ity. He had to a considerable degree tho force and initiative, quick, keen Judgment and largeness of vision which had characterized nis grandfather, the Commodore. The Commodore's work had been his life, but his grandson found much time for tho pursuit of pleasure both at homo and abroad. In the later years of his life he ttpent much bf his time In Europe and withdrew almost c6mpletely from active participation In the control of his properties. His reputation as a sportsman was International. He was long a patron of the French turf, of yachting and of automobile racing In tho United States. For forty years Mr. Vandcrbllt had been one of the leading and most gen erous patrons of the French and Amer ican turf. He owned tho Sheepshead Bay race track when that track waa one of the best known centres of racing ln this country.' in recent years he had confined his racing to France, although ha remained one tne Jargest stock holders In the company that owned Belmont Park and also held a lanro block of stock In the Saratoga track. He owned a racing stable at Polssr. France, which he augmented greatly by purchasing a number of horses from the late James It. Keene. He alto raced frequently In Erlglanil, and notaoie among nis uorses were Malntenon, Fresthre. Northeast, .ko folk and Olbetln. He also was a mem ber of several syndicates that built de fenders of tho America's Cup. He owned several steam yachts, his first being the Alva, named for his first wife. The Alva was soak.

MAY WIN RACE AND CUP TO-DAY Shamrock, With 2 Victories, Needs Ono 3roro to Lift Coveted Trophy. NEW CHALLENGE BEADY N. Y. Y. C. Will Issuo It at Onco if Bcsolnte Loses Crucial Contest .1 On the evo of tho fourth ana possj bly the deciding race for tho America's Cup it became known last night that in case Shamrock IV. wins plans are well under way for tho New York Yacht Club to challengo with a 115 foot schooner, the maximum length allowed under the deed of gift This fact was disclosed on tho Mon tauk, tender of the Resolute, In Sandy Hook Bay. W. L. Gardner, who de signed the sloop Vanltlo and tho schooner Westward for Alexander Smith Cochran, has a commission to build the challenger, and he has out lined his plans. Mr. Gardner is regarded as one of the most skilful yacht designers in Americn. The Vanltie was an aspirant for tho honor of defending the Cup and was barely nosed out by the Resolute in trial races. Many yachtsmen still believe Vanltie Is a better boat than the Herrcshoff sloop. The race to.day Is over the triangular, course and th'e" weather forecast is fair. with light, southerly winds. The special yacht race forecast made at midnight by the local Weather Bu reau,- was as follows: "Winds off Sandy Hook to-day will be mostly gentle and southerly, with partly cloudy weather and possibly somewhat unsettled." The three cornered course favors the Shamrock, as her weakness Is windward work. Sho will have only ten miles to windward at 'most and if she is lucky, as sho was Tuesday, she will have none at all. In three straight reaches across the wind experts agree the chal lenger can beat the Resolute. Off Day on Both Yachts. Should the committee signal a course off shore, instead of close to the Jersey coast, and should a fair breeze prevail, it Is the onlnlon of Skipper William p. Burton and his adviser, Capt. "Jack" Appelgate of Long Branch, that It will be all over but tne shouting. It was an off day yesterday and the crews of the two yachts rested. Sham rock was towed to the dry dock of the Staten Island Ship Building Company, where her bottom and sides were brushed and polished until they were like n mirror and a new topmast was set. Thismeans she will enter to-day's race with a smaller topsail, and her handl cap will be reduced twenty-one seconds, making the Rtsolute's time allowance six minutes and forty seconds. Instead of seven minutes one second, as in the last race. The official measurements, liowever. cannot be taken until after the race, and If the result Is close tho winner may not bo announced until several hours after the yachts have crossed the finish line. The new topmast Is said to be much stronger than the old one, which had shown signs of weakness. Several minor alterations wore made and the challenger was towed back to her moorings inside the Hook late yes tcrday afternoon. Off Robblns Reef she was manoeuvred by the tug for half an hour while hor compasses were ad lusted. The Resolute remained at her moorings In the Horseshoe, whero an Inspection was made of her sails and rigging. Hay Use Schooner Yachts. The report that the next race for the America's Cup might bo between schooner yachts ln tho event of the trophy returning to England will un doubtedly arouse tho enthusiasm of vachtsmcn. The vessel wnicn won tne Pun in 1331. the old America, was a schooner 88 feet long on the waterllne, .iml the onlcer3 or tno .now iorK lacnt Club have decided to return to tho old style of racing craft and will go the limit In size allowable under the deed of gift by which the Cup was left to the club by tne laie ueorge u. ocnuyier.

L- Garrett representing the Royal Ulster Yacht Club, at the conclusion of the race by George Cormack, secretary of the New York Yacht Club, who sails on the Resolute as timer.

Official quarters hero make no ef fort to minimize the gravity of tho sit uation. King necelves Premier. Premier Lloyd George was received by the King to-day in tno longest audi ence In many months. Although tho Premier was reported to havo outlined to tho King "tlie results of the Spa con ference," In other quarters It was stated that the King expressed strongest views on tho necosslty of taking such steps as may be necessary to assure that civili zation shall not bo deprived of the fruits of tho world war. On the other hand, labor has already warned the Government that It will not support a war against Russia. James O'Grady, member of the House of Com mons from Leeds and spokesman In the House for tho Labor party's foreign .pol icy, declared that Labor would not stand for war with Russia and predicted a revolution both ln England and ln France If they entered Into a war with Russia. Meanwhile there ts no League of Na tions to pour oil on the troubled waters. However, Lord Robert Cecil and other devotees of "the almost perfect world State," which was to end all wars, con tinue to Insist that there bo put Into effect the once vaunted machinery of conciliation or compulsion by economic pressure before military pressure is re sorted to, while statesmen who are charged with actual repsonslbllty smllo grimly over Premier Lloyd George duck ing the Issue when he gave as an ex cuse for not calling on the league Rus alas well known hatred for that Instl tutlon. Lord Robert's friends stoutly Insist that the original sin ln this connection was ln that tho statesmen failed to pply the machinery of the league against Poland, where economic pres sure and threat of a boycott might have been effective. They assert that now that this weapon Is being used against Russia, H is glancing off the bear's tough hide, hardened as he Is by such treatment. Meanwhile the British Foreign Office denies that the Polish situation Is as desperate as despatches from Paris In dicate. They say at the Foreign Office that there Is no truth ln the reDort that civilians aro being evacuated from War saw, but that latest Information received here Is to the crrect that tho Polish defence Is stiffening. At the same time they admit that there Is no word from Moscow or from Warsaw to Indicate that armistice negotiations are Droeress. lng.

There will be no limit except the blue sky for contributions to Gov. (Jox's campaign for tho Presidency. Tho Democrats, It developed to-night, nfter a long conference ibetween George White, newly elected chairman of tho Demo cratic National Committee, and vari ous party leaders, will not follow the lead of tho Republican party In fixing $1,000 ns the maximum. Anybody who desires will bo permitted to fur nish any amount for tho furtherance of tho Democratic cause. This situation caused considerable surprise, in view of the agitation con ducted ln the last few days among Democrats about heavy campaign con tributions. The Democrats hastened to explain. "We don't need to place a limit on the Democratic contribuUons," said Wil bur Marsh, the committee treasurer. "Most of ours will be from $10 fellows." How much money the Democrats ex pect to raise Is not exactly clear, but the minimum Is fixed at 14.000,000 that Is, if the campaign Is to be conducted on the same scale as four years ago, when tho cost was (2,000,000. The hope is to get more than $4,000,000, with the explanation that tho money will be re quired because of the woman vote, ex pected to come through the ratification of the suffrage amendment by Tennes see. When Information about the Demo crats' plan for limitless contributions reached tho ears of Republican leaders returning to-night from the Harding notification ceremonies ln Marlon they smiled broadly. They took the attitude that the -recent Democratic noise had some reason behind It, and It looked to them as If tho reason had been found. "Look ouf orth C. them said, "for contributions from some of the favored war .profiteers who got fat contracts thrqugh the War and Navy depart ments." In spite of this the Democrats under took to Justify their position on the ground that the names and the amounts of the contributions would be" posted through reports to the Kenyon Commit tee investigating campaign expendi tures.

Ho asserted his leadership by throwing tho league Into the discard, going further with his reservations ovon than Senator Lodge or Senators Johnson and Borah ever thought of going.
