Three Duels Over Election Issues
St. John’s, N.F., Dec. 11 – Three duels were fought in St. Pierre, Miquelon, during the past fortnight as a result of the issues in the campaign for the election of a representative from the colony to the French chamber of deputies. This election will take place December 27. Notwithstanding the denial by the French government that the islands were to be sold to the United States, the report to this effect forms one of the campaign issues.
