Judge, Common Pleas Court,

Delaware, Ohio


Sir:


As you know, the regular rule day for hearing petitions for naturalization in

your Court is April 3, 1928

On that date the petitions on the accompanying list will, if notice has been

posted by the Clerk of Court as required by section 5 of the act of June 29, 1906,

be ready for final hearing, the necessary 90 days having elapsed between the date

of filing and the date of final hearing, as provided by section 6 of that act.

It will not be possible for the Government to have a representative in [illegible]

at the hearing, and for this reason, and in the thought that it may be helpful to

you, the liberty is being taken of setting forth in the numbered paragraphs below

the essential requirements to be met by the petitioners. So far as it has been

possible, investigations and administrative examinations have been made by the

Naturalization Service. These indicate that the requirements have been complied

with to the degree shown on the list. Cases showing failure to meet the require-

ments are also listed. Should the evidence fail to satisfy the Court of any

applicant's qualifications, or of the competency or credibility of the witnesses,

further examination will be made upon request.

(1) Proof to the satisfaction of the Court that the petitioner is a person of good

moral character, attached to the principles of the Constitution of the United

States, and well disposed to the good order and happiness of the same.

(2) Residence of the applicant in the United States for at least 5 years continu-

ously and in the State in which the petition is filed for at least 1 year continu-

ously, immediately preceding the date of filing the petition.

(3) Declaration of intention, not less than 2 nor more than 7 years old upon the

date of filing the petition, attached thereto at the time the petition was filed.

(4) Certificate of arrival, if arrival was on or after June 29, 1906, showing the

date, place, and manner of the petitioner's arrival in the United States, attached

to the petition at the time the petition was filed.

(5) Verification of the petition, at the time it was filed, by two citizen wit-

nesses who show in the affidavits and by their oral testimony in open court at the

final hearing that they have personal knowledge of the petitioner's residence in

the United States and in the State during the entire period the petitioner has

resided in the State up to 5 years, and as to his good moral character, attachment

to the principles of the Constitution of the United States, and other qualification

including his knowledge of our institutions of government.

(6) Depositions duly taken after the requisite statutory notice, covering the

period of petitioner's residence, moral character, and attachment to the principles

of the Constitution during such period of his residence outside of the State in

which the petition is filed which is not covered by the oral testimony of witnesses

in open court.

Hearing April 3, 1928.


Pet. No. Name Remarks

44 Vincenzo Amicarelli - We have examined the petitioner and his

witnesses by means of questionnaires and

his case seems to be in proper order. We

have not objections to offer and the Court

may proceed to hear the case. Depositions

covering residence in New York from 1920

to September 1926, have been examined by

this office and are satisfactory.

45 Peno Andon Stoytheff - We have examined this case as stated in the

preceding case and have no objections to

offer.


If the Clerk does not have a sufficient number of blank certificates

of naturalization on hand in his book he should write this office and

we will forward the required number.

Please instruct the Clerk to advise this office immediately after

the hearing as to the disposition of each case.

Very respectfully,

Chief Naturalization Examiner,

Pittsburgh, Pa.


Dear Sir:

I am enclosing a filled-in preliminary form for petition for

naturalization, together with my Declaration of Intention.

I was prevented from petitioning last March (exactly two years

after taking out my first paper) for my second papers by a temporary

visit abroad of six months and a half, due to the illness and death

of my mother. I understand from information received from Washington

by the Court House of Delaware, Ohio, that such a temporary absence

does not interfere with the taking out of the final papers if the

alien has maintained his residence in this country, which I have done.

I am still residing at Delaware, Ohio, but I expect to leave

in October to teach at the University of Wisconsin. I am, therefore,

very anxious to complete the necessary formalities for naturalization

while I am still in Ohio where I have resided since 1918. For this

reason, and also because my witnesses are to leave Delaware within

a few weeks for the summer, I shall appreciate all you may do in

order to send the necessary papers to the Clerk of Court as soon as

possible. I shall be glad to have you wire at my expense for any

information you might have to get from Washington or New York, for

the issuance of a certificate of arrival.

Thanking you for your assistance in this matter, I am

Respectfully yours,

Dear Sir:

1. Reference is made to petition No. 32 set for hearing in your court on

Wednesday, September 14, 1921.

interposing of an objection by the government to his admission to citizen-

ship on that date, providing he satisfies the court as to his qualifications

and fitness for citizenship.

3. It is suggested therefore that you please notify the applicant to be

present in court on that date with his witnesses to the petition for final

hearing. The same two witnesses who signed the affidavit to the petition

must appear.

4. It is also requested that you notify me promptly what action the court

takes in the premises and the date on which that action was taken.

Yours very truly

Dear Sir:

1. Our records indicate that there is but one petition for naturalization

to be called for hearing on Saturday April 8th 1922 i.e. John Bradwell.

Our investigation in this case has been satisfactory and there is

no objection to the admission to citizenship on the part of the Government

if upon his appearance in Court with his witnesses the Court finds that he

has met all the requirements of the law as to filing, the witnesses properly

qualify and testify as to the facts required i.e. that he has been here con-

tinously for five years immediately prior to filing the petition, that he

is a man of good moral character, not a believer in anarchy or polygamy and

a person attached to the principles of the Constitution of the United States

and that the examination of the petitioner indicates that he has a

knowledge of our government and is in every qualified to be admitted to cit-

izenship. The government hereby waives its right to be present at the hearing.


2. Of course it is presumed that the preliminary requirements have been met

and that the declaration of intention is properly attached to the petition.

Please refer to this number

in replying

March 20, 1911.

The Clerk,

of the Common Pleas Court,

Delaware, Ohio.

Dear Sir:

In response to your communication of the 14th instant, relative to

petition for naturalization No. 3, in the name of Robert Alexander

Callander, filed in your court on January 21, 1911, it is desired to

state that this petition is invalid, as indicated in the division's

letter of the 7th instant.

It appears that the petitioner has resided in Ohio since June 20,

1902. Where a petitioner has resided in the State for a period of

five years or more, the law requires that the subscribing witnesses be

competent to testify to his residence in the United States and in the

State for the full five years immediately preceding the date of the

petition. As the witnesses who signed the affidavit can testify to

only one and one-half years of the residence, and there being no provi-

sion in the law for proving the remainder of the required five years

residence within the State by depositions, the petition should be dis-

missed. There is no way in the opinion of this office that the present

petition may be corrected.

This view is taken in conformity with the decision of the United

States Circuit Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, in the case of

the United States v. Martorana, 171 Fed. 397, in which the court held

that a petition for naturalization not verified in accordance with the

provisions of the law is invalid and not susceptible of legal amendment,

and entered a decree for the cancelation of the certificate of natural-

ization issued out of the United States District Court for the Eastern

District of Pennsylvania. The views expressed herein are practically

uniformly upheld by the courts throughout the United States.


The division will have no objection to Mr. Callander's filing a

new petition, provided your court will return the declaration of inten-

tion which was filed in support of his present application. If however,

the court deems the declaration to be a part of its records, an affi-

davit for a new copy of the declaration should be made in accordance

with rule 17 of the naturalization regulations. It is also desired to

inform you that the courts throughout the United States have generally

held that the naturalization jurisdiction of state courts extends only

to aliens residing within the geographical limits of the county in which

the application is made. He should therefore make his petition in the

county in which he resides at the time it is made.

Replying to your query relative to the fee on this petition, it is

desired to state that under the decision of the Comptroller of the

Treasury, no fee paid for the filing of a petition for naturalization

may be refunded or applied to a subsequent petition. It will therefore

be necessary for Mr. Callander to pay the usual fee of four dollars, in

the event he files a new petition.

Regarding the expense incurred by you for registering letters to

the division, you should forward your registry receipts within thirty
