THIELE, Cashier Judge Alfred Budge Republican Candidate For Posi tion on Supreme Bench ! É .. Meets all Requirements Àmerican Falls Press: The candi dacy of Judge Alfred Budge for the preme court is being received with evidence of marked favor. He lias been on the district bench for ten su years, duri his eminent ljg wji kii ti me he has proved ttitness. He has never been reversed in a criminal case, and his reversals in civil cases have been re markably few. He is fitted tempera mentally for the position, as well as by legal learning and experience. No better selection could be made, and those who are in a position to appreci ate the great benefit of a clean and able court • of last resort are numbered among his warmest supporters. Measured by any standard, he meets all requirements. He is mentally and morally sound. He is at the zenih of vigorous manhood, able to meet any demands that may be made upon him. His life, public and private, practically all of which has been passed in Idaho, is without reproach. He is clear headed, calm and dispassionate, firm without being austere, and ever care ful that the rights of ail shall have pro tection. The vote which he will re ceive at the primaries will be a great compliment to him, and a deserved tribute to his worth. John Austin Killed by Grizzly.

The great bear then emerged from the brush to (lie place the two hunters had selected and was killed by Austin's partner. Exact details of the tragedy are lacking, the few meager facts of the encounter being brought to Kooskia by Mr. Rcnshnw of Kamiah. open It was stnt liy Major Fenn over the telephone to the Signal office Thursday that to the Major's personal knowledge Austin had boon a denizen of the Middle Fork country for at lessl 12 years.
