SIX MORE TO THE GOOD.
Tlint Number of Jitul Dunmorc Votes
Six more assuredly defective Demo
cratic votes were turned up by Judge
Knapp In his examination of the fifty
three witnesses summoned by the Dun
more contestants yesterday.
Two old men, Patrick Derrig and
Dennis Derrig, were disqualified
through their own admission that their
naturalization papers were brought to
them from Wllkes-Barro by one Mar
tin McCormiok, and that they never
went before court to be examined or to
take the oath of alleglence.
It appears that some twenty-five
years ago it was the fashion to send
after rather than go after your natural
ization papers and it is the expectation
of the contestants' attorneys that a
number of these illegally obtained citi
zenships will bo shown up.
Thomas Kelly, the third man disqual
ified, voted on the strength of his fa
ther's naturalization, although he him
self was over 18 years of age when he
came to this country.
