As the contestant and con testee objected to certain ballots, they were laid aside and when the count was completed, Cease and Colin had received 79 votes each, with five al leged defective ballots in dispute. Cease's attorneys objected to one of the ballots because someone had writ ten the word "No" in one of the squares opposite the question, "Shall the County High school be maintain ed," and to two of the ballots becauie in voting the voter had made a cross In the t-quare opposite Colin's name instead of an X. Colin's attorney objected to one of the ballots because some voter had made a similar mark opposite Cease's name, and to another because Cease's name had been written in the column headed "Democratic," when it was already printed in the "People's Party" column. The commissioners, after listening to the arguments of the attorneys on both sides, and throwing out such ballots as they considered defective, decided that Colin had been elected by one vote.
