The Vanderbilt Separa tion Agreed Upon. Mrs. W. K. to Receive $3,000,000. Regarded as a Very Liberal Allowance for Her. Her House In Newport Probably Worth, With Contents, . $2,000,000. Special to Thb Republican. New York, Nov. 13. Within the pait fortnight the final financial ar rangements are eaid to have been made between Mr. and Mrs. Wm. K. Vander bilt and suit for divorce will be began nnder the laws of Rhode Island. Col. William Jay has been acting as the representative of Mrs. Vanderbilt eince the quarrel was made public some monthB ago. Col. Jay, who went abroad late last spring with Mrs. Jay, has no doubt accomplished all that is possible in the interest of his client. He is a trusted friend of Mr. Wm. K. Vanderbilt, and therefore well fitted for his task. Col. Jay, arrived in the city last week, and Mrs. Wm. K. Vander bilt came from New York to meet him. In a brief interview the terms agreed to by Mr. Vanderbilt were made known and Col. Jay returned to New York with Mrs. Vanderbilt. $3,000,000. The sum offered by Mr. Vanderbilt was computed alter long and careful consideration by the family lawyers. It is understood to be ?3 000,000. As a wife of a multi-millionaire Mrs. Van derbilt has naturally a right to a very large sum as dower. She is not, how ever, considered to be the injured party in the case, and her husband's generos ity to her and to her impecunious rela tives has been in the past unstinted. It is, therefore, held that she is very fairly treated in receiving an amount of money somewhat larger than the law would possibly require. She will take the sum mentioned in place of alimony and of her right of dower. The splen did establishment in which she is now liyine, known as the "Marble House," on Bellevue avenue, Newport, was a gift to her in former years from Mr. Vanderbilt, and this represents nearly, if not quits, $2,000,000. The dwelling cost about $1,000,000, and the interior has been filled with the most expensive furniture, hangings and decorations. ; There has also been a vast outlav of money on the grounds. Marble house was finally com Dieted during the summer of 1892 and Mrs. Vanderbilt and her children lived in it for three or tour months at that time. It was late in the season that the yacht Alva, with Mr. Vanderbilt on board was wrecked near Boston. The follow ing winter Mrs. W. K. Vanderbilt and her family lived in the residence on the corner of Fifth avenue and Fifty-Becond street. They returned to Marble house, Newport, for the summer of 1893. Mr. Vanderbilt was then in England watch ing the construction of his new steam yacht, the Valiant, in which he sailed to this side in August, 1894. Two months later the Valiant sailed with a party on board that included Mr. and Mrs. Wm. K. Vanderbilt, Mr. Oliver Hazard, Perry Belmont, Mr. Louis Webb, Mr. Frederick O'Beach and Dr. Edward L. Keves. Mrs. Vanderbilt's Return. It is now a monch since Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt returned from Europe and went to the Marble house, Newport. The divorce laws of Rhode Island are not difficult. Mrs. Vanderbilt has lived there for the necessary time to enable her to bring suit, as Marble house is really her home. Her sister, Miss Ar mide Smith, who has resided here in a house not far from the Vanderbilt resi dence, joined Mrs. Wm. K. Vanderbilt 1 in rans ana came over witn ner on me Lucania. Miss Smith has since been Mrs. Vanderbilt's guest at Marble house. Mr. W. K. Vanderbilt's relatives are thoroughly in accord with him, and thev have shown no sympathetic inter est in Mrs. W. K. Vanderbilt since her return. This was plainly shown on her arrival in New York. She was, it is said, highly incensed at the fact that only one-half of the Marble House had been opened, and thought it showed an intention to slight her. The windows and doors of the entire place had been boarded up in the usual Newport fash ion. Since her arrival in Newport, Mrs. Vanderbilt has secluded herself. She drives out daily for a couple of hours and is invariably alone in her phaeton. She drives two spirited black horees, which are the highest steppers on the Ocean drive. Although Mrs. W. K. Vanderbilt is fond of horses, Bhe will probably not be seen at the coming horse 6how. While Mrs. Vanderbilt will have the legal custody of her children it is be lieved that the two elders who are al most grown up, will be allowed to make their choice, and live with their father or his family, if ftiey wish to. New York Agitated. Not for years has a domestic infelicity agitated New York society as greatly as that of Mr. and Mrs. W. K. Vander bilt. " Only the Coleman-Drayton case can be compared with it for interest, and that was of a considerably differ ent character. What Mr. Vanderbilt will do after the divorce is decreed is the phase of the case which ib now exciting gossip. He is good-looking, amiable and fond of society. When a marriageable man combines these qualities with a vast fortune there must be. a very large num ber of heartB yearning to console him. There is even a rumor already of the prospective engagement of Mr. Vander bilt to the widowed Duchees of Man chester, who was formerly Miss Con suelo Yznaga, of New York, and who is a very handsome woman. Mrs. Vanderbilt belongs to a family which has given an extraordinary amount of employment to the divorce courts. Her sister, Miss Jennie Smith, married Mr. Fernandy Yznaga. She arranged an amicable divorce with him and married Mr. Tiffany. Mr. Yznaga then married Miss Mabel Wright. Another sister. Miss Minnie Smith, married a French nobleman named De Fonbilliott, from whom she is now separated. De Fonbilliott made a brave attempt to live at Mr. Vander bilt's expense, but is now said to be working. The remaining sister is the only one who has no marital unpleas antness. She is unmarried and the de voted friend oi Mrs. W. K. Vanderbilt. COURTED BY TELEPHONE. Bills for a Democratic State Committee to Pay. A Clerk Did His Courting Over the Wire and the Messages Were Charged Uptothe Committee. Special to The Republican. New York, Nov. 13. Charles R. De Freeet, chief clerk of the Democratic state committee, was astonished to find the committee charged with $17.50 for telephone expen&to 10 Rochester. Think as he would he could not recall any thing which necessitated so many mes sages to Rochester. He had in his employ as a wrapper of mail and packages a young man named Joseph, whose home is in Rochester. Mr. DeFreeet was about to interrogate Joseph when he heard some one call up Rochester orrthe telephone in the ad joining room. The chief clerk listened and heard a garbled conversation, which indicated that the boy was saying sweet things to a girl, who was evidently replying in kind. Mr. DeFreest interrogated Joseph, and extracted from hitn a confession that he had teen carrying on his court ing by telephone with his girl in Rochester. "It was easier than writing," said Joseph, "and I could tell her more than I'd be able to write." HE WANTS TO DIE. A Murderer Who Is Anxious to Be Sentenced.

Heretofore These Ad vances Have Been Forced Contri butions. Foreigners Are Leaving Pekin Because There Is Great Fear for Their Safety There. By the Associated Press. San Feancisco, Nov. 13. Advices from Tien Tsin announce that the Chinese have secured from Hong Kong and Shanghai banks a loan of ten mil lion taels at seven per cent. With this money several ships of Chili's navy are to be purchased. If the present inten tion is carried out, it is reported that two wealthy Tien Tsin merchants have united to make up the fund of one mil lion taels, repayment of which, rith interest, is secured by the customs de partment. The viceroys of several provinces are said to have declared their readiness to supply amounts at which they have been variously assessed, ranging from four to ten million taels. For the first time in Chinese history, it is stated, these euma are eventually to he re funded and interest allowed. Hither to the provincial rulers have been compelled to fill the imperial treasury without hope of other remuneration than the bestowal of increased rank upon the principal officials concerned. This circumstance that they now ven ture to demand that these advances be considered loans, instead of a gift, iB held to be significant of the central government's waning authority. But however obtained, the Tsung Li Yaiuen is elated at the prospect of amassing 125,000,000 taels before the end of the year, that being the promised total. The exodus oi foreigners from Pekin continues. The British minister has peremptorily ordered his countrymen to leave, and if any aliens remain it will be without the sanction of their diplo matic representatives who do not un dertake to guarantee their safety.

The Grand Jury Defines Price's Crime. On the Civil Side Nothing is Done, Though a Mountain of Bus iness Is Moved. Wm. Piice, the slayer of Wm. Shnr bert, was yesterday indicted by the grand jury for murder.
