the Lignite supporters could produce
evidence sufficient to disprove the
evidence submitted by Bowbells that
he would deny the mandamus.
Bowbells showed that while the
polling places in Burke county had
been established by the Ward county
commissioners, that the election was
held in many precincts in places not
designated as polling places. The

places. Judge Templeton held that
the vote in these precincts was ille
gal and he would not direct the can
vassing board to canvass the vote in
the precincts in question.
