BOURBONS RUEF LABORS IH THE JUTE Period of Service Up, But He StiH Sticks to His- ; Task.. ' , . Machinery Here Operates More Evenly Than Law'Si" He Says. SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 22. Although the customary period of -service required of prisoners upon tbelr entrance to the Jute mi has long since -passed -in the caee of Abraham Ruef.- he is still pa tiently plying Jhe Jute threads on the spool and mending the strands as they break amidst the dust and roar of . the machinery in the Jute mill. He is quite expert in tending this complicated part or the process of the main industry in the prison. ; With strained eye and careful fingers he labors from the stroke of the bell in the early morning until its toll at t the close of the day reminds him that his allotted task is over. Yesterday he remarked to a visitor that-he understood the reason of the. alacrity with which .the toiler in-the outer world dropped his tools precisely the Instant that the blast of the' whistle told him tha his labor was over for that day and the eagerness with which he left the scene to repair to his home and join his family for refreshment and repose in the evening.' - In commenting on this situation, Ruef said: "There is this difference between the man outside and' myself: The state allows me no return for the service It requires of me in fulfilling of the. measure of the obligation it has imposed upon me through a judgment of its court, notwithstanding1 1 was denied a 'hearing of my case of an Appellate tribunal after $hey had decided in the first instant that I was Justly entitled to such -relief. I am mindful here, however, to see that the machinery of the state prison Jute mill "operates more evenly and aecuratelyfwhen I am tending it than the legal machinery of the state court acted " In tny 'case' on appeal."'' .'
