BakersfieldJAuto Supply Cor. 19th and 0 Streets Telephone Main 1260 SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 29.—Four teen years In tho penitentiary, the maximum sentence provided for bribery- of a supervisor, was the penalty meted out today to Abraham Ruef. who for four years directed the political destinies of San Francisco as visor of the adminstration of E, Schmitz, former mayor of the city. Judgment was pronounced at th*» close of a day devoted to legal battle, wherein the defense sought to Intro duce many reasons for a new trial, When Judge William P. Lawlor had denied this and other motions Involving delay, the defendant arose nt the court's command and stood unmoved through the recital of Judgment. There was no demonstration on the part of the speciueors during the proceedings in the court room, nor later when Ruef, having entered the prison van in the custody of a deputy sheriff, started in the dusk on his long ride to the county jail. Before the adjournment of court notice of appeal had been filed on behali of the defendant nnd the court lim, signed a writ of probable cause, which will act as a stay of execution In the case. In a trial that was prolonged through a period of nearly four months, Ruef was convicted, on December 10, of bribing John J. Purey. a former supervisor, to favor the award of an overhead franchise to the United Railroads. This was one of 114 indictments returned against Rnef by the Oliver grand jury, which hear.) the confessions of sixteen supervisors who admitted the acceptance of bribes in several matters involving public service corporations. MER "W,ater from the Owens River will be flowing In the mains in the City of Los Angeles early In the spring of 1913." This is the promise of Chief Engineer MuUiolland of the bos Angeles aqueduct, made after a thorough examination of conditions in the valley and a careful calculation based on the rate of progress now being made in the various departments of the work. t "Our reports sl.ow that the forces we now have in the field are constructing 590 feet of aqueduct a day/' said Mr. Mulholland. "This includes both tunnel and open-air work and is equivalent to a little more than forty one miles a year, as a large part of the work Is beln gpushed night and day and every day in the year, including Sundays. , "At this rate it would take us five years to complete the aqueduct, which is the time fixed by the original estimates, but. within the next six months we will have matters In such shape that our present rate of progress will be fully doubled. We Intend to complete the aqueduct^in four years from the time of the beginning of the actual work of -construction, which was last September. I am fully convinced thai this can be done and that consequently we will save a year on the time allotted to —Los Angeles Express. us. CATTLE ON THE DESERT DIE OF STARVATION LOS ANGELES, Dec. 30.—Accord- Ing to reports from the Antelope Val|ley, thousands of cattle are roaming the government ranges in that section with nothing to eat and hundreds are said to be dying of starvation. Scores already have died, it is said, and conditions are becoming worse. These animals belong to Cattlemen In the valley. Superintendent 55immer of the Society for tho Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, who has just returned from Lancaster, reports that the cattle have eaten everything available, even the sage brush. K. ,M. Durnnt of Los Angeles tried to alleviate conditions. He recently sold out his holdings then-, ne killed some of his rattle to pu* thorn out of their suffering. Mr. Durant, who resides nt 1007 Orange stret, wan asked concerning conditions In the valley. "It is a hard situation for the cattlemen to meet," he said. "The cattle are usually fat at this time of year, and we have our hardest time In February aud March, but this year the ralna have destroyed the dry feed and there la nothing green for the cattle to eat. If they are in good condition at the start, they will go through the winter on the brush feed If they have an abundance of water right, at hand, but they cannot be It means loss to the cattle i driven men."
