Mr. Trowbridge was elected district attorney for the 4th Judicial District
of Colorado in 1900, his term of office being four years, from January 8, 1901,
to January 10, 1905.

It was during his term of office as district attorney that there occurred the
severe labor troubles in Crijiple Creek district. That district was included in his
official territory, and things there were then vei-y turbulent. Only those who
have been on the ground when so heated controversies have occurred, which breed
a small state of civil war, can fully understand the importance of a cool head
and an impartial mind. Mr. Trowbridge so conducted the duties of his office
during those trying times as to eonunand the respect of both sides of the contro-
versy, and their judgment was that he was bent upon meting out impartial justice
to all men regardless of their position. As an instance of this, the records of
the court show that he not only prosecuted worlanen charged with crimes, but
also as vigorously prosecuted military officers who had illegally imprisoned
miners.

In 1906 he was appointed by his successor assistant district attorney for the
same district, a position he holds at present. The district embraces seven
counties and 90,000 people, and both as district attorney and assistant he has
been successful to a marked degree. During the year 1907, for example, out of
eighty-five criminal cases of all classes disposed of by him only five defendants

obtained a verdict "not guilty." The bar has frankly told Mr. Trowbridge that
he is the most efficient prosecutor the district has ever had, and among the busi-
ness men of Denver and every other section where he has lived he has maintained
an honorable name.

Mr. Trowbridge while a student at Colby College was elected to the Phi Beta
Kappa society and the Delta Upsilon fraternity. He is also a member of the
Colorado Springs Lodge of Elks and the Colorado Society of the Sons of the
American Revolution.
