Tho AlUlett Ivrc,e Case.
Our local readers will remember
that Byron Millett, Esq., formerly of
this city now of Denver, has been en
gaged in a law snit against his wife
for divorce. The result is told, thus,
by the Tribune' Republican of the
28th ult. :
The long-contested and much-talkcd-about
Millett divorce case
came to an end in the Superior Court
yesterday by the jury bringing.in a
verdict awarding a divorce to Mr.
Millett and denying Mrs. Millett's
claims. The jury was out about two
hours, and the verdict was not at all
Mrs. Millett brought the suit for
divorce, alleging all sorts of mis
demeanors against her husband, the
disgusting details of which have beon
given to the public in one way or
Mr. Millett denied these charges in
toto, and filed a cross-bill in which he
asked that tbo divorce be granted to
him instead of to hia wife.
One of the points in the cross-bill
was that his wife was the mother of
a girl child, born to her nearly ten
years ago, and that she had rcpie
sented to him (Millett) that this
daughter was her younger sister. Of
these facts, he claimed, he did not
know until his wifo began proceed
ings against him.
The evidence went to disprove Mrs.
Millett's charges, and to prove the
allegations made by Mr. Millett, and
the jury had no hesitancy in finding a
verdict for him.
A result of the trial will be to
transfer certain property, heretofore
held by Mrs. Millett, to the possession
of Mr. Millett. When they wero
married, Mr. Millett bought a nice
little home, and furnished it.
When Mrs. Millett applied for
alimony, Judge Rogers gavo her
possession of the property, which was
then bringing in a rental of $40 per
month, until such time as the case
was finally determined.
The property will now go to Mr.

Otto Kumtner tells us that Wed

that the moteor must have been a
great ways off.
