Exposed by Trip to Texas.
Contrary to all expectations, and
in direct contradiction o'f so-called
official reports given out both in
this city and in St Louis, Mrs,
Beulah Paden Viles, bride of thir
teen days of Voler V. Viles, chief
clerk ofthe Census Bureau, not
only did not leave St Louis last
Thursday to come to Washington,
but has no intention of doing'so.
WILL JOIS HIS "WIFE.
According to statements made last
night by Mrs. Thomas Burns, of 218 A
street southeast, an employe In the office
of 4he chief clerk, at whose house Mr.
Viles formerly boarded, it Is his Intention
to Join his wife in either Springfield or
Mansfield, Mo, In the near future.
All Indications point to the supposition
that it Is Mr. Viles plan to resign his
position as chief clerk and announoe his
candidacy for Congress from the
Sixteenth district of Missouri. For some
time there have been rumors concerning
Mr. "Tiles entering the Congressional race,
but he has not yet made an official
announcement. Acting In accordance
Rita the rules governing employes In the
civil servloe, Mr. Viles would have to
relinquish his office under tiro govern
ment before announcing his candidacy
While, press dispatches from" St Louis
have continued to state that Mrs. Viles
left that city at a- o'clock last Thursday
afternoon for Washington, no confirma
tion of these statements -has been made
here Neither Mr. Viles nor Inmates of
his house at 228 Maryland avenue north
east would say whether Mrs Viles was'i
expected last night Rumors that she
was to arrive bad reached the neighbor
hood, and, from early evening until late
the lawn benches in front of the houses
in the row of which Mr. Viles house is
a part were occupied by curious peo
ple who watched the Viles residence for
a chance glimpse of" the bride and her
boy. The house "remained dark through
out the evening, and Mr. VJles was not
seen after 8 o'clock.
Sid Jkot Expect Her.
Mrs. Thomas Bums, who has known
Mr. Viles for years, stated that whUe
talking over the telephone with hlmhe
had said he did not expect Mrs. Viles
at all. Mrs. Burns says that from what
Mr. Viles had. told her in the last few
days she is certain Mrs Viles will not
come to Washington, but, that he will go
to Springfield or Mansfield to meet her.
and will probably stay there. Mrs. Burns
says that Mr Viles has made every ef
fort to keep the news of his marriage a
secret and that It would not have leaked
out had not Mrs. Viles gained possession
of her son in Texas.
Mrs. Burns stated it was her belief
that Mr. Viles had telegraphed his wife
last Thursday either to stay in St Louis
or go to Springfield, so as to avoid the
publicity which her arrival In Washing
ton would occasion.
