defendant be ousted and altogether excluded from such office, franchise
or privilege, and also that he pay the costs of the proceedings.

      3.  If the defendant be found to have exercised merely certain

this chapter in any court shall have precedence of any civil business
pending therein; and the court, if the matter is of public concern,

party, require as speedy a trial of the merits of the case as may be
consistent with the rights of the parties.

      [1911 CPA § 738; RL § 5680; NCL § 9227]

 Actions under this chapter commenced in the Supreme Court shall be
conducted in the same manner as if commenced in the district court, and

process and to enter orders and judgments as the clerk of the district
court has in like cases. All pleadings and the conduct of the trial shall
be the same as in the district court. If a jury is required to determine
an issue of fact, the Court shall order the question to be tried before a
