Guthrie-The federal grand jury that has been investigating the murder of wealthy Osage Indians in Oklahoma recessed until February 12, when it will resume the inquiry. Although it brought indictments in only one case, Edwin K. Brown, special assistant attorney general, declared the jury's progress has been "highly satisfactory.
W. K. Hale and John Ramsey, indicted for the murder of Henry Roan, an Osage, will be arraigned in federal court, it was announced. Fred Rowe, Pawhuska cattleman, who appeared before the grand jury as a witness was arrested on a charge of perjury, filed by Roy Lewis, United States district attorney. Lowe, who is said to be a close friend of Hale, immediately furnished $10,000 bond and was released. Complaints against Rowe were the only perjury charge filed but Lewis intimated other witnesses might be arrested later.
