CANAL ZONE


The'Canal Zone contains about 448 square miles,. It
begins at a point three marine miles on each side of the
center line of the route of the Canal. It includes the
group of islands in the Bay of Panama, Perico, Naos,
Culebra and Flamenco. The cities of Panama and CoQlon
are excluded from the Zone, but the United States has
the right to enforce sanitary ordinances on those cities,
and to maintain public order in them in case the
Republic of Panama should not be able, in the judgment
of the United States, to do so,
Of the 448 square miles of Zone territory, the United
States owns the larger portion. Under treaty with
Panama, the United States has the right to acquire by
purchase, or by the exercise of the right of eminent
domain, any lands, buildings, water rights, or other
properties necessary and convenient for the construc-
tion, maintenance, operation, sanitation, and protection
of the Canal, and it can, therefore, at any time acquire
the lands within the Zone boundaries which are owned
by private persons.


THE PANAMA CANAL



'he canal was acquired by the treaty between the
United States and the Republic of Panama, on Feb. 23,
1904, the rights to the Canal being purchased from the
French by the United States for $40,000,000. Work on
the Canal begun by the United States, May 4, 1904.
Date of completion, Jan. 1, 1915. Total cost will be
about $375,000,000. The Canal Zone, of which the City
of Panama is the Capital, is under the jurisdiction of
the Isthmian Canal Commission, appointed by the
President.

RELOCATED PANAMA RAIL ROAD



The new or relocated line of the Panama R. R. is

47.1 miles long. This slightly reduces the distance

over the old line. From Colon to Mindi and from

Panama to Corozal the old location is retained, but the

rest of the Road has been rebuilt. Small streams are

crossed on reinforced concrete culverts. Where the

Rail Road crosses the Gatun River and the Chagres

River, steel bridges are erected. Part of the Road runs

through a tunnel 736 feet long, known as Miraflores

T-2unel. Total cost of new line is estimated at $9,000,000.
