LETTER OF TRANSMIT A L.


OFFICE OF CHIEF SANITARY OFFICER,
Ancon, Canal Zone, February 24, 1908.


CHAIRMAN


ISTHMIAN CANAL COMMISSION,
Culebra, Canal Zone.


SIR: I herewith forward annual report for the cal-
endar year 1907.

We averaged during the year 1907, 39,343 em-

had 1,132 deaths, giving us a death rate of 28.77 per

rs the families of
and children. Of


these, 9 died, giving a death rate of 6.73 per thousand;
smaller, I think, than the death rate in the same class
in most parts of the United States. Generally, the
death rate of women and children, considered together,
is much higher than that of men in the prime of life.
In .this instance they are almost exactly the same.
Among our 39,000 employees, we had on a average
every day 987 sick. This would give us a rate per
thousand of 25, which compares very favorably with
bodies of men such as our Army or Navy or similar
organizations.
During the year we had 173 violent deaths among the
employees, as compared with 55 in the preceding year. I
can think of no particular reason for this very great
increase. There was probably very much more blasting
and railroad work going on in 1907 than in 1906.
From beriberi we had 2 deaths among the employees
in 1907 as against 6 in 1906. Among the employees
in 1907 we had 48 deaths from dysentery as against 69
in the preceding year: From malaria among the em-

is an interesting fact that of our total mortality,
per thousand, among our laboring force, only
per thousand died of disease ordinarily called
cal, among which we include malaria.
king malaria itself, we admitted into our hospi-

orce had ma-
had this dis-


ease; that is, the malaria for the year had been reduced
just one-half as compared with 1906.
It is interesting to note in this connection that in
1906 our death rate from malaria was, approximately,


among
blacks
3 per

the whites, 2 per thousand, and among the
8 per thousand. In 1907 the same rates were
thousand and 4 per thousand. This seems to
