A Mohawk Indian who views casino gambling as an economic boon to the reservation unseated the tribe's anti-gambling incumbent chief in an election Saturday. The election amounted to a referendum on gambling, an issue so divisive among Mohawks it led to bloodshed May 1, when two Indians were shot to death in a clash between pro- and anti-gambling factions. Since then, New York state and Canadian police have occupied the 28,000-acre reservation, which straddles the international border.
