Caughnawaga Indian Reserve Name Aldermen Tomorrow

There are 15 candidates seeking aldermanic honors at Caughnawaga Indian reserve, out of which six will be chosen tomorrow morning. Of these six, one will be name mayor or chief of the Indian reserve.

The candidates are John Lacombe, John Skye, John F. Martin, Andrew Delisle, Peter J. Delisle, Peter Jacobs, Peter Williams, Frank P. Johns, Paul Paul, John Lawrence, Angus T. McComber, Angus Standup, John Norton, Joseph Martin and Dominic McComber. These candidates were chosen yesterday afternoon.

There are no wards or districts in the Indian reserve and the aldermen, who are chosen, look after the entire reserve and have one head, who is either called the mayor or chief. Peter Williams is the present chief of the reserve and is again seeking the honour this year.

The police, who will be on duty during the voting hours, will be under the orders of Chief Jocks, of Caughnawaga.
