Washington said: "The due administration of justice is th
firmest pillar of good government." If the laws are to be en
forced and respected criminal cases must be promptly tried
During seven years just preceding my assumption of the
office of district judge 53 criminal cases were tried in the district
court of Flathead County In these cases the average time e^
ing between the filing of the information and the trial was 126
days- During the first seven years of my administration 76
criminal cases were tried. In these eases the average time ex
piring between the filing of the information and trial was 49 days
In many county seats when juries are not in attendance court
business can be transacted only one day each week. This is true
in Missoula and Great Falls. In Flathead County, when I am not
holding court elsewhere, my practice has been to hold two ses
sions of court each day except Saturdays. Saturdays are devoted
to juvenile court work.
During the year just preceding my assumption of the office
court was held in Flathead County 158 days. During the yt»r
ending June 30, 1932 court was held 204 days. ^
In Lincoln County during the seven years before I took office
court was held 230 days. During the next
seven years it was held
294 days. Beware of charges against a candidate made too late
to be refuted.
I am again a candidate for this office on the
republican ticket. The primary election is July
from 12 o'clock till 7.
My record is my platform.

Attorney General
J. Justin Bourquin was born in Helena, Mont., in 1896. Grad
uated from the law school of the University of Montana in 1920.
Elected County Attorney of Silver Bow County in 1930, which of
fice he has conducted at less expense to the public than any other
incumbent in more than twenty years.
Bourquin is not running for office upon any platform of mis
leading promises impossible of performance, most of which are
published for the sole purpose of confusing the voters. His only
promise if nominated and elected is that he will exercise the
powers and perform the duties of the office of Attorney General
to the best of his ability in a strictly impartial manner, without
favor to, or fear of, any particular class or individual.

be some activity in newspaper circles,
especially in this end for the reason
that Eureka is likely to step out a
