To the father of deceased, who lives at
Dea Moines, the news was also sent in an
Indirect way, first as a rumor to Wm. Foo
ter, and then by a confirmation ol this.
Charles K. is the second son whose violent
death on the frontier he has. been called
upon to mourn, Nathaniel having loot his
life in 18S5, while engaged upon the survey
of the road to Montana by Col. James A.
Sawyers. A sister at Keokuk and another
at Atlantic were alao telegraphed in regard*
to the calamity which had befallen their
brother, and dispatches were sent to other
relstives and friends.
COXJBCTUBKS.
It will be seen from the dispatches that
there is a diversity of opinion aa to the
msnner of Mr. Hedges' death, then being
adherents for the v»w that be killed"'
self accidentally, and also that he
killed by Indians. The general jud^
hero seems to be tbat he was killed by
white man for revenge. He waa a
positive man, and one whose intercourse
with others was sometimes calculated to
stir up bitter enmity, for when he believed
that any one with whom be transacted bosl
attempted tpjake undue advantage of
him, he was not Jttiated la his .denuncia
tion. There is one circumstance which
leads especially to the opinion tbat-he waa
sssassinsted for revenge. Last spring he

in regard to three bead of cattle left with
him last fall for keeping. The ranchman
said that the cattle had died, but Mr.
Hedges told bim that be did not believe it,
but wssof tbe opinion that he bad stolen
them. Lest June, when Mr. Hedges w. a
in that section closing up the Indian cattle
contract for last yesr, he wss accompanied
by Janwi Baumto of this city. who heard a
flottrif conversation batweeh ,the two. The
rsDcbman demanded a retraction of tbe ac
re-
go
cuaation of theft, to which Mr. Hedges
lied: "It's all past now. Let It
PJ
Tl
'here is no use dragging up these old mat
ten." But nothing but a square refaction
would satisfy the man, which of cojirse Mr.
Hedges would not mtke until conVinced
that he was wrong. But ss tha two in the
buggy turned to'drlve away from the ranch
man, he .gelled .after them the most terrific
curses, swearing I'll get even yet!" This
glvea room for the surmise that Mr. Hedges
was killed by his infuriated enemy, who
took that meaaa for getting even.
II XVXKTFCI, LI FX.
Charles E. Hedgee was born in Switaer
land county, Indiana, June 21,1834, which
put him at the time of his death, in hia for
ty-fourth year. In December, 1856. the fami
ly, of which he was the eldest child, removed
to Keokuk. Iowa. About a month laUythe
father and Charles eaine to 8ioux City,
being lad to this step by the judgment, after
due examination ot the geographical loca
tion, that this point oflerad better opportun
ities than any in the country as a madness
opsoing. D. T. foiiowed ia the nsxt ApnL
whan they opened a real estate office. In the
fidl of 1867, Urnries went iato partnership
with J. W. Basics in a private hand. He
