ESTABUSHED APRIL 8' 1906 B.UEF1ELD. W. V,\„ MONDAY AFTERNOON, DECEMBER 5, 1910 PRICE TWO CENTS TO CONTEST ELECTION Hon. G. H. C. Wiles for the Legislature and Coun ty Officers Have Filed Notices JUDGE SANDERS HAS BEEN RETAINED Irregularities and All Man ner of Fraud is Charged by the Democrats Hon. George K. (’. Wiles of William son, thp defeated Democratic candi date on the face of the returns for the house of representatives in Min go county was In the city la3t night, and ho gave It out that he has served J notice of contest on the Republican, county commits e and will proceed to take evidence in the form of deposi tions at an e.^rly date as the statute ; provides. This evidence will be pre sented to the legislature when it meets. In addition to this, the Dem ocratic candidate for the commission er of the county court, the county superintendent of schools, and sever al district officers have also filed no- J flees of contest. These notices will i be docketed In the county court and will be heard initially before this body. Judge Joseph M. .Sanders of Ulue field has been letained to repreBont \ Mr. Wiles, and lie will also represent \ the rout of the contestants. The notice of contest Is a volumi j nous document covering thirty-flvoI typewritten pages. The main grounds j for contest as stated is that the elee- ! tion was illegal, irregular and there- 1 fore null and void by reason of fraud, trickery and corruption and irregu larities In tho organization and con- . duet thereof. Mr. Wiles alleges that i he was duly and regularly elected, having received a majority of all the votes legally cast, and is therefore J entitled to a certificate of election. He will, therefore, resist and contest I the right of his Republican opponent Weils Goodykonntz to hold the office in question, and will demand that the votes alleged to have been Illegally caHt be excluded from the results of tho election. Mr. Wiles sajs that he is primed with evidence ns to the illegal nnri fraudulent voting in the county, and he is prepared to show that he wa* legally circled. He arys that going to tho legislature outs hut small fig ure with him, but that it is up to the people of Mingo to show that the Republican gang, the machine gang in other words, cannot go over them roughshod for all time. He charges fraud and criminal irregularities, and he says he Is prepared t-» establish his Charges, olse ho would not Wave made them. It promises to be an interestirtg fight, and doubtless will result in the purification of Mingo politics. IMMIGRANTS TO SOUTHERN STATES Washington, Dec.
