No fee is demanded on endorsement. A statutory declaration is, however, required, by the applicant to the effect that he is the person, named in the letters of naturalisation, and that he has obtained them with out fraud.

BOGUS NATURALISATION PAPERS.
SUCCESSFUL SEARCH FOR A witness.
Auckland, September 6. Ah Gin, alias Chun Lum, knows in Timaru as "Charley," a market gardener, arrested on a warrant, is a witness in the case in which a Chinaman from the Island is charged with having; bogus naturalisatioa papers. The case had been adjourned for the production of Ah Gin as a witness, who could not be found. Ah Gin was found In a laundry m Albert Street. The arrest was effected by Const. Crawford, of Timaru. Mr Base, Collector of Customs, and Mr Parker, the Customs, visited the various places till reaching the Chinese laundry A. room was locked, but keys were procured and Ah Gin found therein.

Otago Witness 28 September 1899, Page 17 Auckland
The charge against a Chinaman answering to the name of Unh Gin Lum that he did unlawfully enter the colony without paying 100 poll tax was heard at the Police Court and pleaded guilty. He explained that accused was not Unh Gin Lum at all, his real name being Ngh Mong. Accused had arrived in the colony some years ago, and paid poll tax at that time to the amount of 10. He remained for a number of years at Timaru, and about 18 months ago came to Auckland, where he carried on business, first as a laundryman, and latterly as a fruiterer. Eventually he left for Rarotonga. Under the Chinese Immigration Act of 1881 he ought to have obtained a certificate before leaving the colony, but this he neglected to do. He returned from Rarotonga some few months ago. Unfortunately he had in his possession letters of naturalisation in the name of Unh Gin Lum, and he used these letters to get Into the colony again. He had no right to do that...
The Crown Prosecutor said it was a pity accused did not take the course of pleading guilty before he put the Crown to a good deal of expense in bringing witnesses from Timaru to identify another Chinaman as the person named in the certificate. The collector of customs had made a diligent search all over the colony as to whether this man had previously paid the poll tax, but without result. There was reason to believe that a systematic evasion of the Chinese poll tax was going on. The magistrate said defendant had pleaded guilty, and "there" was no option but to order the payment of the 100 poll tax.

Wanganui Chronicle, 20 September 1899, Page 2
BOGUS CHINESE "CHARLIE."
EVDING THE POLL-TAX. A HEAVY FINE. (Per Press Association.) AUCKLAND, September 19. The Chinaman who impersonated Unh Gin Lum, known in Timaru as "Charlie," and who arrived in Auckland from the Islands on August 1st, using "Charlie's" naturalisation papers, was convicted to-day by Mr Brabant, S.M., and fined 105 and costs 39 19s 6d. Mr Tole, Crown Solicitor, appeared for the Customs, and Mr Theo. Coper for the defence. The Chinaman pleaded guilty when confronted by Anthony Mills, J.P., and with Constable Crawford, of Timaru, both of whom came from South to appear in the case. "Charlie" was charged with being an accessory. Mr Tole, on behalf of the Customs, when Unh Gin Lum pleaded guilty, allowed the charge preferred against "Charlie" to be withdrawn.

If your man came from Ireland and born before 1922 he would have been a British citizen and would not need to be naturalized.
