Olympia, Xov. 10. Thomas J. Miller,
mayor of Tumwater, tiled suit for di
vorce today from Mary Moore Miller,
alia Howard, alia Leafgreen, whom he
has jut discovered i hi lawful wife,
although he has not Men her for twen
ty year. Within that time he hat
again married and has a wife and child
now living in Tumwater.
The complaint filed in the Superior
Court today reveals a most remarkable
story, which, if finally substantiated.
will end the claim of, the woman to a
half million dollar estate in St. Louis
left by Ledede J. Howard. When a
very young man, residing in Taylor,
villa, 11L, Thomas J. Miller was masque

riage. They were residing in Palmer.

ran down to Decatur, whore they were
secretly married. Later, wihen the in
fatuation was over. Miller told hi
young wfe that hi name was not How
ard, but Miller, and that he had not
married her under his true name and
munity. Mr. Miller at once consented
to right the wrong a nearly, a he
eould by asking for a divorce from the
woman he had unwittingly legally nmr
lied. With the etablihmcnt of hi
identity a Charlie Howard and hi
marriage to the woman claiming tin
Missouri Uoward estate, her claim to he

J. Miller, of Tumwater, Washington,
that he i the "Charlie Howard" to
whom she wa married net-ret ly in IV
catur, 111., in ISM.
She will be able to prove to the
court she say, that it was the St,
Loui manufacturer who died April 15,
l!H, to whom she was married. She
say one cannot understand the motive
of the Tumwater mayor.
I have never heard of this man Mil
ler," declred Mrs. Leafgreen, when seen
at her home today. "The- story U

"I cannot understan it at all. The
mayor's action is a mystery to me. 1
have an idea that thi man has been
found by other parties to the case, and
I believe he will never face the peo

myself before we were married."
Commenting on the statement in the
dispatch from Olympia that after the
wedding, Thomaa J. Miller, alias Char

Another chapter in the 'pis4le of the
fight over the hlghwav leading to
Hume's milt, wa enacted lat evening,
thortly after 7 o'clock, when a number
of the employe of the mill broke down
and tore up the f nee which 0. Hansen
had built aero the. highway, for the pro
tectlon of hi property. After complet
ing tne oepiv-ution, the men lacked a
notice on one of the post, warning Hun
en not to again attempt to obstruct
thn highway, under dire penalties. It
wa adorned with cro bone and a
skull, symbolic of t,V- result that might
fidlow, if the warning were not heeded.
The trouble commenced Thursday,
when Hansen built a wire fene across
the only road leading to Hume' mill,
ued both for edctriun travel, and the
traffic of pnsluct of the mill. During
Um night the wires were cut, and early
yesterday morning Hansen encountered
a nian around the plm-e, whom he charg
ed with Vie depriilitl ion, A fit fight
followed, hnd Hansen withdrew with
a large bump on hi forehead, which he
claimed his adversary inflicted with a
ilunt instrument.
( ing hazily to the office of .lutice
ioodinan, Hiinsen procured a John Do-'
warrant for hi auilant, and accom
panied by Contahl L'Uinger, he start
ed to find trV man. He claimed the ma a
was an employe of the Hume mill,
but a diligent search there by the of
Acer failed to locate him.
Hansen then repaired hi fence,
spliced the wire, and went homo to
get a little sleep. He expected another
onslaught on his fence last night, but
aa near as can be learned he slept too
long, and. the depredation wa committ
ed before lie reai-hed the sc-ne.
Haae4) has announced that he will
fight the case to a bitter end. and
yiertay iegan the construction of a
small house on the road. The aback
is said to be located on a spot where
the first high tide will take it out into
the river, but when Street Superintend
ent Kearney called his attention to that
fact yesterday, Hanen replied by elat
ing that he guessed he could build hi
house where lie pleased.
Mr. Kearney stated lat night that
an agreement would protwbly be reach
ed between tlie city and the county
court, whereby both ltireh and Fifty
third street would lie improved, and
thn open a highway to the mill.
A it is, there i no feasible roub for
the many men going and coming from
their work, while lumber from the mill
ha to be transferred at the fenc
brought to the fence by one team, and
packed through and there tak-.-n by
another.
