From the discussion it the last meeting of the Commnisiop it .in evidentai;t tl',
majority of its members are in favor of locks of the larger size. As I do n i:.njot : .






IN!,UTES OFQ THE., ISTHMIAN CANAL COMMISSION. 43

in thip opinion I must vpte against the resolution now before the Commission. In
justification of my vote I desire to offer the following reasons:
S. The tendency in modern shipbuilding is to increase the width.or beam of ships
more proportipqlly than their length. This is illustrated conspicuously in the two
latest types of large ship construction, viz, in the Lusitania and the Mauritania. The
length of thee hwo ships oqyr all is about 800 feet, beam 88 feet, loaded draft about 37
feet, and tonnag about 33,00P. The average length of the I0 largest ships in the
world, including the two above named, is 714 feet. Their average beam is 74 feet;
averL dqraft about 32 feet, and average tonnage about 21,000 tons. The ratio of the
Svam to length in the two largest is as 1is to 9, in the 10 largestas 1 is to 9.6. A vessel
uit ip accordance with the average ratio of the 10 would, if she were 1,000 feet
long, ave a beam of 104 feet. If built in accordance with the ratio of the latest
t9p, yiz, tli Mauritania and Luitanma. she would have .a beam of 110 feet. A lock
therefore, with a usable length of 1,000 feet and a usable width o 100 feet would not
be wide enough for either.
It 1ll be npted that the ratio of width to lepgth in toe two largest and latest
dpp p a h been. materially increased over the average of the 10 latest. I believe
qti we tendency 1vill be, in fhe future, to increase tbe beam of large ships more
proportionally than their length. If this he true, locks with a ratio of 1 to 10,
which is proposed in the resolution. will not meet the new conditions. Indeed, the
ratio adopted by the minority of the Consulting Board of Engineers may be too
mall, Put it is nearer the average thnp the other.
2. The gret dra .f 9f puch yessels 4P the Lu.itania and. Jauritani~ will restrict their
voyages to port that they can enter. There are few port in the world tq-day flat
will admit them loaded. Being built for passenger traffic, principally, they wi1l ply
$er1.n the deep and important harbors of Europe and America. They must load
and discharge at ports where the mopst modern terminal facilities exist. They cap
ot: afford, on accoUnt of their cost, to lie idle at the docks or to expend an unusual
ength of time in loading or discharging. Such vessels pre not likely, in my opinipp,
ito sq the canal. It is pot even probable that these large ships will be used as trans-
ports in war on accoq~t of the paucity of larbors that they can enter. There is not
a harbor on the coast of the tinited States south of New York that they can enter
loaded, and they can not even enter New York harbor until it is deepened. That
the draft of water in our harbors may be increased is admitted, but it will be many
j~ias before this.can be accomplished to any great extent, and in the case of many
harbor it will be impr.cticable to deepen them sufficiently to accommodate thpse
gret ships.
3. To a certain extent the two large vessels referred to are experimental. They
are riot yet to be classed as successful commercial ventures. They may or may not
prove po, even for the trade for which they are designed, and the inference that much
tareo qnes will soon follow them is by no means assured. The size of the locks
r. eC .~eded .by the minority of the Board of Consulting Engineers is, however,
sufficient not only to accommodate them, but to accommodate others of 25 peq cent
larger tonnage should they ever come into use.
4. Docks:jnto :hich:they may be taken for repair and examination are necessary
for all ships. There are only a fewy in the world that are large enough to take in
the4q eviathams.t This together with the great cost of construction and operation
of, these docks, will always limit their number and retard their growth, and thus
react to retard the growth of ships.
5. The locks are to bein duplicate, but there is no necessity of having them exactly
the sane sie:' If one spif be'built &r, the building of the second set can be postponed
::I teri opni. Ofte aa. T'e second set can then be made larger than

ti y:eaf:i lencea there is papet that there will be less uncertainty than there is

to-day. Moreover, the construction of the second set can be done at less cost thaii, .-:4i
both sets be built together, and as the construction of the locks is the conitro ,: '
factor in fixing the time of opening the canal, the building of a single set at itrstw2il': ::
enable the canal to be opened sooner than if both sets be built at the same timn:ime .....
6. The technical problems involved in the construction of these large locks are:y: ':
no means unimportant. Every, additional foot in width necessitates the enlafg:i:
ment of the gates, which are already beyond precedent. I do not wish to conEvi ::: ;:
the idea that gates can not be built of the proposed dimensions that will work 'stis-,:n:S
factorily, but it is far safer to make progress in this direction by steps rather thailly::,' :!i.
a long leap. No amount of theory can replace experience. Ships have grown lare :
gradually. -The sudden leap taken in the construction of the Great Easlerj fifty years I
ago was a dismal failure. More important than the construction of the gates is their .ii
operation. The larger they are the more difficult it will be to operate them'and. :
keep them in repair.: '
7. The traffic thru the Panama Canal will, for some years after it is first opened, ..::i
be small. This is the universal experience with all canals. At first but little .omn-....
merce passes thru them. The increase comes gradually. It was s06 with the:."
Amsterdam, the Kiel, the Soo, and the Manchester'canals. It is only reasonable t.
believe that the Panama Canal will follow the beaten track. A single set of '.Qcks:;t
will answer all purposes for years, and the construction of the second set can thus "b
postponed without detriment to commerce. .::
8. The construction of locks of the size stated in the resolution will cost about ::::
$7,000,000 more tlan those recommended by the minority of the Consulting Board.':
I do not think we are justified in incurring this large additional expenditure to meet .
an emergency that may never arise.
9. The Mauritania and Lusitania are British ships, heavily subsidized by. the
British Government. Indeed, all of the large ships of the world are foreign ships,
granted subsidies by the governments under whose flag they sail. Without these
subsidies it is doubtful whether or not they could keep the seas. The American
policy for years has been opposed to the granting of subsidies. Unless that policy
be changed we are not likely to add such large ships, much less larger ones, to our
commercial marine.
7. Resolved, That the recommendations, as contained in the letter of
the Chief Engineer of date August 3, 1906, as to the location of the -i
Gatun locks, and as to the line of the canal from these locks north-' .
ward to deep water in the Caribbean Sea, with the modification that .s::
the outer end, of the most northerly tangent be moved westward eub-
stantially as shown in yellow on the blueprint accompanying the':i
letter, are hereby approved, and the construction of the Gatun, locklF:ii
at the location, and on the line as shown on said print,. is hereby.-
ordered. The letter of August 3. 1906, referred to, is as follows:

ISTHMIAN CANAL COMMISSION, .
DEPARTMENT OF CONSTRUCTION AND ENOINEIRING,
Ouebra, August 3, 1906.
Mr. T. P. SHOTS,
Chairman, Culebra, C. Z.
SIR: I beg to hand you a blueprint which I have prepared, showing the north or r
Caribbean terminus of the canal, from and including the Gatun locks to the.sea :."
The approach to the Gatun locks from the 42-foot line in Colon Harbot to ..e i
locks, to be a dredged channel 500 feet bottom width, 41 feet deep at mean tide,, and .i'::
in alignment as indicated on the print.

4, ,, : ::':






MINUTES OF THE.ISTHMIAN CANAL COMMISSION. 4)

The print also shows in dotted lines the alignment as proposed in the minority
Report of the Board of Consulting Engineers, as nearly as it can be laid down from
the general map prepared by the Board.
I have located the, locks as indicated, after careful consideration, so that in the
construction of the same and the approaches we obtain the least practicable amount.
of work, combined with the best foundations and alignment. You will observe that
we get some 6,000 feet of straight line approaching the locks. In other words, the
center axis of the locks coincides with the center line of the canal for a distance of
nearly 1t miles north from the locks and avoids the angle so close to the end of the
locks as proposed by the Board.
The alignment I propose to adopt gives a total of about thirteen degrees from the
locks to the sea, while the alignment of the Board shows a total of fifty-four degrees,
a saving in favor of the new line of forty-one degrees. The new line is 'also some
600 feet shorter. The above advantages are too obvious to need discussion.
Now, as regards the estimate of quantities and classification of same and conse-
quent cost. my estimate of quantities on the proposed line exprest in the same
form as submitted by the Board is as follows:
Yards.
Excavation of channel in Limon Bay from mile 0 to mile 4.55..--...---- 8,455,909
Excavation from head of Limon- Bay (mile 4.55) to northerly end of
Gatun Lot (mile 6.7):
Earth :.-.......---.......-.......--------------------- .-.. 7,620,652
Indurated clay .---......--. ---.. ...--.....--....-...-....----... 3,309,671
Total.-- -..-...... ..... .......-....-............-.............. 19,386,232
Please note in a comparison of quantities that my estimate is about 150,000 yards
more than that of the Board, from the 42-foot line to the shore line of Limon Bay
by'follbwing exactly the same alignment.
This difference may arise from the fact that I have estimated for a depth of 41
feet, while the Board reports that a channel 40 feet deep should be dug, which is
probably the depth it. estimated, although on Plate 10 the depth is indicated as 41
feet. But my total of quantities is still about 1,000,000 yards less than the total as
estimated. by the Board, this decrease arising largely, no doubt, from the shorter
length of the line as proposed. However, I have always felt that the classification
as fixt by the Board is too low, there being, to my mind, more indurated clay than
," it allows. I hbve therefore, in my classification, allowed about 1,000,000 yards of
indurated delay more than allowed by the Board, so that, as a total in cost, my fig-
.- r es run $320,000 (with the same unit prices) over the estimate as made by the
Board; while on the Board's classification, with my quantities, my estimate would
ron some.$370,000 less.
The placing of the locks somewhat farther to the north than indicated by the
Board gives a much better foundation for the south approach walls and safety gates,
as will be apparent from a study of the topographical map of the situation.
I am therefore preparing to go ahead with the work, as to the location of the locks
and lines from the locks to the sea, on the plan submitted with this letter.
STruly yours,
JNO. F. STEViENS,
Chief Engineer.

SIR: I beg to inclose blueprint, plan and profile, showing a suggested change of .::
line by Major Harrod at the south entrance of the canal, indicating the proposed: ::..
sea-level channel from deep water upvto the locks, as originating on the westinstead ':i

The borings are numbered along the line as indicated, and are clearly sho'e*h 'i) :'j :

ilg the new proposed entrance will cost about $450,000, on the face of the figures,
mobre than the one alreddy.decided upon along the old French channel.
There is this. in addition, in favor of the new proposition, and that is that the
harbor currents would be much more nearly parallel with the line of the channel
than they would be with the adopted location along the old French line, and it would
ie natural to suppose, in view of this, that there would be much less silting in or
filling in of the channel.
I submit the above for your consideration.
Trily yours, JNo. F. STEVENS,
Chief Engineer.
After discussion it was unanimously
Resolved, That the change of line suggested in this letter be approved
and ordered.


There being no further business to come before the meeting an

maintained, for the exclusive use of the Commission, lines from Pedro
Miguel to Bas Obispo, along practically the prism of the Canal, and
from Bas Obispo to Alhajuela, which were not considered or covered

Resolved, That telephone and telegraph lines constructed and main-
tained as independent lines for the exclusive use of one interest shall

erty shall become the exclusive property of, and shall be operated and

without the necessity of returning to the Isthmus, for a leave of absence
which she had been granted.
In accordance with the provisions of paragraph 11 of the minutes of
the one hundred and thirteenth meeting, such authority was granted.

neer, dated December 7, 1906, recommending that Mr. H. P. Linnell

this matter the following resolution was adopted, the same to be made
a part of the contract of employment and to supersede all orders in
conflict therewith:
Resolved, That all employees whose compensation is fixed on an
hourly basis, and who receive a wage of 56 cents United States cur-
Srency per hour, or more, and who are carried on the rolls prior and
subsequent thereto, will be allowed pay for the following holidays:
:January 1. February 22, May 30, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving
Day, and December 25. -Employees with rate of pay per hour will be
paid on the basis of an eight-hour day. If such employees render
