H. E. Charlton Asks Damages
Following Theft Charge
OAKLAND, Oct. 4.—For being
charged with stealing a steam engine
a year ago H. E. Charlton wants $5,000
damages from "VV. T. Baxley.
The plaintiff alleges in a euit fifed
today that Baxley secured a "warrant
charging him with "lifting" the en
gine October 8, 1911, and that he was
arrested and held for 30 hours before
he could secure his release on $2,000
bail.
The case reached a crisis October 24,
and Charlton said he was acquitted by
Police Judge Mortimer Smith. Since
then he satd Baxley had taken no fur
ther action to substantiate the charge.
Charlton complained that his arrest
was attended with a large amount of
publicity, which injured his reputation
and his business*.
