The Indians who committed the murders
described in our last issue were soon afterward arrested at
Fort Atkinson and examined before R. B. Olmstead a Justice of
the Peace, and by him committed to the jail of Dubuque County.
At the second term of the District court of Clayton county
they were indicted by the names of Hee-gaw-hee-kaw, Waw-how-chaw-neck-kaw
and Haw-kaw-kaw for the murder of Moses Tegarden. They were
brought into court and being unable to procure counsel James
Grant, afterward one of the most prominent and successful
lawyers of the state, was appointed to defend them. They
were arraigned and each plead not guilty. A. change of vennue
from Clayton county on account of the prejudice of the people
was applied for and granted.
