p.4 Ran The Rapids - "Big John," the well known pilot of Caughnawaga, ran the Lachine rapids on Monday in a manner never before known. His reason for saying this was because he had several ladies with him. He made a brief speech, stating that for eighteen years he never was honored with a female companion on this dangerous trip.
