Caughnawaga Reserve Stages Annual Celebration
Caughnawaga Indian Reserve yesterday celebrated the feast of St. Jean Baptiste, parading in the streets with the Caughnawaga officers of the order at the head. Later the residents adjourned to the grounds at the back of St. Francois Xavier Church where a French flag was hoisted.
Several Indians then competed with rifles to break off the top of the mast carrying the flag. Eddy Beauvais was the winner, receiving the $5 annually awarded for the feat.

White Farmers in Caughnawaga (1880) | Surnames: Beauvais, Delisle, DeLorimier, Jocks, Murray, Williams
Interview with Chief Jocks and others – the question of white labour – the case fairly and fully stated
Yesterday we had an opportunity of meeting three of the prominent Indians from Caughnawaga, namely, Chief Jocks and Messrs. DeLorimier and Francois Delisle from whom we learned something of the difficulties which are prevailing in Caughnawaga, to which frequent references has been made in the newspapers. The following interview with the Chef will give our readers, perhaps, a better understanding of the whole question than they could get in any other way.
Rep.– I understand that the difficulties in connection with white residents n the reservation of Caughnawaga have not been settled?
Chief– They have not.
Rep.- What has given rise to this difficulty? Continue reading

Past And future Meet in Caughnawaga
by MARY BRANSWELL
Caughnawaga, Que. –
Nation-wide attention will be focussed on this little village on the banks of the St. Lawrence River later this month, when one of the most modern schools in Canada is officially opened here n the presence, it is hoped, of Prime Minter St. Laurent.
For the Indian boys and girls who fill its bright, attractive classrooms, however, school days began at Tekakwitha School in September, not later, or earlier, than in other schools throughout the Dominion. Continue reading

Suit for Assault Accordingly Dismissed in Superior Court
ALIBI IS PRESENTED
Mr. Justice de Lorimier Comments on Ability of Plaintiff to Travel Despite Alleged Injuries
Beaten near the Caughnawaga highway, Magloire Poirier identified Joseph Boudrias as his assailant and sued him for $530, but Mr. Justice de Lorimier, of the Superior Court, dismissed his action for lack of positive identification of Boudrias as the aggressor and commented on the fact that despite his allege injuries, Poirier was able to come to Montreal on the same afternoon to consult a lawyer.

Later, he claimed, Boudrias boasted of having kicked hm on the head. Continue reading
