Former Marion Canadian Appears Under Warrant Charging Perjury

The fourth person and the first woman to be haled before Judge J. O. Lacroix, extradition commissioner on charges of perjury arising out of evidence given at Watertown, N.Y. at the probating of the will of the late Chief White cloud of Caughnawaga, appeared yesterday before His Honor in the person of comely Marion Canadian – now Mrs. Cesare Tosini, of this city – the widow of White Cloud.

Mike Phillips, Angus Canadian – Marion’s brother – and Peter Delisle, ex-Mayor of the reservation, and chief clerk of the Westmount postal sub-station, are those who have already been arraigned before the the extradition commissioner. Like them, Marion Canadian told the judge yesterday that she would fight extradition, by which it is sought to have these Canadian residents go to Watertown, where the will was probated. James Crankshaw and John Crankshaw represented the woman.
