"Freight Agent in Exonerated Federal Court in Arizona Dismisses Indictment Against C.W. Wardwell The Federal Grand Jury indictment against Charles W. Wardwell, Southern Pacific agent at Menlo Park, in which Wardwell was charged with conspiring with certain shippers at Bowie, Arizona, while agent there in 1911, to bill cars at a weight less than the actual weight of the shipment, was dismissed on Wednesday. Wardwell was arrested at Menlo Park on April 30. The Southern Pacific company furnished a bond for his appearance and at the hearing in Bowie on Wednesday, the court dismissed the indictment, the fact being brought out that at the time of the alleged conspiracy, there were no track scales at Bowie. Wardwell also convinced the court that if any misbilling was done that it was an imposition on him. Wardwell has been in the employ of the Southern Pacific company for 30 years and has always borne an excellent reputation. The court in Arizona fully exonerated Wardwell." -Oakland (California) Tribune 03 May 1912
