NOTES OF PROGRESS.

Lock and Dam Works at Gatun.
'1 In work oni the locks and dams
has taken such shape that it is now
possible to see something of their
form. It is believed that the actual
masonry work can be commenced at
the Gatun Locks within eighteen
nionths. F.,,. steam shovels are now
dlig; in., out the site for the locks,
and construction can be ',.-'ii after
I,,- recavation for the top lock of the
Light is completed. Two steam
.h,,'.el- are |I,.1 ..i,-,' the site for the
ri. Ti.iin of the spillway works of the
1n.itun dlam. Railroad trestles are
lI.i.-in' :-rected across the line that will
m.iurk i e inside and outside bound-
,n-- 'if the big dam, and from one of
ili,:,.. ,lirt trains are now dumping


dirt upon the site of thlle dam. Pre-
paratory to the installation of pipe-
lile i1,,.. ,. .. .. which more rapid,
work on the dam will be possible. tlih
'hagres river has been diverted from
its main channel and danmmed. The
pipe-line dredges should be installed
by tile I 1i. of January, when the
work at Gatun will be as actively in
progress as that at Culebra. Suitable
sand and rock for the big inas mry
locks have been locate.l, and. whiil is
equally interesting to the ,.-in ,-.
material for the i I I I, I, 'e of all
thie necessary cement has been lo-
cated on the Isthmus. It is hop ed,
however, that cement can be secured
for suchli a price in thlie Unite States
as to make it more advisable to pro-
cure the needed supply there instead
of manufacturing it on the Istlihmus.
The general features, design and
details of the G(atun and other locks
have been worked out, together with
the general type and number of lock
gates to be used. The survey of all
the country to be converted into the
great Gatun lake has been completed,
and the ln-1h.l. reports show that the
area will be 171 square miles.

The Reorganization in Culebra Cut.
With the approval of thle (Chairmnan
and of the C..,,ii...,-ir I in charge
of all the excavation, the ten miles of
the Culebra Division was i ..... i :..1
on the first of July last in accordance
with a plan presented by Mr. L. K.
Rourke, after discussion with Mr.
Bolich. This created four divisions,
each of which is, about two and
a half miles in extent, and is under
the direction of a local superinten-
dent. Mr. George A. Greenslade has
been --.-i,,, 1 to the district north of
1.i I,.- Iii. which is now officially re-
ferred to as the Tabernilla District.
Mr. Dan E. Crowley has charge of all
the work between Stations 1(;0) and
1; :o. 1. -. .1 t.1 tlihe Empire District.
Mr. Joseph Little is responsible for
what is known as the Culebra Dis-
trict,.'l. di. ,- from -i.,i .. I, 1, O to
184o. 'I'l, Pedro D _uel District.
running south from i S..n 18i0 to
La Boca, is in charge of \i. D. B.
Brown. Between AMatachin and Bas
Obispo Mr. Fred L. IIHrtigan is in
1,,.'.- of what is known as the Bas
Obispo District. Within their re-
spective territories these local super,


intendents are held responsible for
everything that is done therein.
They report direct to the Assistant
divisionn ii _iI . lr. Rourke, who
in turn reports to Mr. Bolichi, the
Division Engineer, to whom the Com-
missioniier in charge of all excavation
looks for results from the Culebra
Cut. Within each subdivision pro-
motion li..i, the foremen, so far as
practicable, is, according to -,.,i.'rity
and ,r 11 .. .. as determined I.'.
actual results. The Ile. i of this con-
centration of authority is shown in
the records made so far during the
i I season which have been second
only to the best accomplished before
the rains set in. It has been esti-
mated that about 5":.- n.'. cubic
yards would have to be removed froni
the Culebra Cut to complete the canal
authorized by C.,.ir.--. Of this
amount there has been removed at
least .' tl()(00 cubic yards. About
4,'175,(00 cubic yards of this have
been removed di iri the seven months
of this year. and the total for the
year is likely to reach l,.nih.;uo
cubic vards.
Club House Libraries.
TI. libraries which were purchased
by the Commission under direction of
the Secretary of War for the four new
Recreation luniliinj- have arrived and
will be placed in thle reading rooms as
soon as proper provision for their care
can be made. The books, of which
there are about (ioO for each ll:ii,
were purchased in tlie --.,t.1- by
a representative of the Commission,
who was aided in their selection by
.,h1. of the National Y. M. C. A.;
who have had l:ir-o, perimene in work
of this kind. 'I,'.' -i 'I r I reference
books, and the works on history,
travel, science, philosophy and relig-
ion are tie same in all four libraries,
but the fiction is .!tlir-iil in each
case, tile purpose 1Li i1, to :ii-,- it
about from one liilriij to another
from time to time, in order to make
the whole body of it accessible to .ill
sections of the Zone.

GOETRALS, CULEBRA.
I heartily congratulate you and all
the men on the Canal. for extraordi-
nary showing you have made during
the month of August. As this is the
height of the rainy season, I had not
for a moment supposed you would
be able to keep up your already 1,i.,
record of work done, and I am as sur-
prised as I am pleased that you should
have surpassed it.

Eight Millions for Faster Canal Work.

CULEBRA, AUG. 18, 1907.
Secretary of War,
Washington:
Construction work for this fiscal
year is developing faster than was
contemplated. Report of expendi-
tures for July shows we are exceeding
monthly allowance for labor and have

creased expenditure and with lower
unit cost. With present organization

for construction, we have one million
dollars less for labor, and the same for
material, notwithstanding largely in-
creased demands due to the necessity
of starting new work on the Ch:grc'
Division. and relocation on the Pan-
ama Railroad for which no allowances
were made. Work on locks and dams
on each terminus has been opened up
and should be pushed *;.,i,.u-l\ this
year. Very little was expended at
these points last year. Time of com-
pletion of Canal now appears to de-
pend on work at Gatun, progress on
Gatun dam dependent on removal of
present railroad track to new location.
In order to lay concrete in locks next
year, plant must be contracted for
this year, but appropriation not suf-
ficient. If in accordance with Revised
at.,,o. :,.:^'. request authority to
continue expenditures in excess of pro
rata monthly allowance on account of
present necessities and unforeseen de-
velopments since estimates were sub-
mitted, with m1i1,l,:r't ilii.,u that Con-
gress will be requested to make addi-
tional appropriation to cover the
d~, ikti.- v at next session. Addi-
tional funds required for construction
this fiscal year, four nuilh.i,-, for labor
and four millions for r:il.r; il; total
eight millions. This is required, not
as an increase of cost of Canal, but in
order to work faster. If not approved,
request to be informed as soon as pos-
sible so that work can be reduced
and expenditure kept within present
appropriations.

OIL AND TOO.QUITOE-.

Why the Sanitary Department U ehl 3,200 Ear-
rels of 01 or about 160,000 Gallons During
the Last Fisial Year.

BY IIERMAn C(ANFIEL)D.
"What's the use of wasting all
that oil on that pondl? -on', you
see the wind blows it; from side to side
and the skeeters can nat 11 fly up
in the clear space and not get any on
their ini .-- is the question put ini
one form or another by almost every-
newcomer on the Isthmns to every
sanitary inspector.
In the first ..1. there are about
fifty known species of mosquitoes on.
the Z~.i,- and there are probably ten
more unidentified. Of these fifty, ten
and probably eleven are known to be
Anopheles and one Stegomyia. Of
the Anopheles two species are posi-
tively known to be thie carriers of
malaria infection and all' -,,, myia
participate in thie conveyance of
i,-lh..A fever infection. What the
remainder of the Anopheles and the
large number of Culex which are now
considered only troublesome, are en-
':.:1 in, is unknown.
The Sanitary Department is now at
work on the solution of this problem.
All the til'r\ or more known species
of mosquitoes have different life hab-
its, that is, they breed under hli. rhi.
conditions, they live and thrive under
different conditions and in different
places. Ti.' perpetuation of each spe-
cies depends upon diil,..- i conditions
and their whole course of life and
action depends upon their environ-
ment. The Sanitary Department takes
the broad _r.u'ii that a mosquito
must be exterminated whether produc-
tive of disease or only profanity.
Brirflv this war .f extermination is
carried on against the 'i--_.....,i, and
certain ('iih''., varieties by the destrue-
tion of all water containr-s a''.1 .- in -
the Anopheles and other ir'. ... o -t
Culex '0, oiling and other measures.
All streams and standing water are
oiled to kill the larva and to prevent
the female mosquito 1 ,.iii her eggs
upon such waters. A good quantity
of water is necessary for the l.....di_
of hn'i-,pi;I,, -. Tb, \ do not breed in
tall grass, ".i Id or brush, or in 'i '
damp places and fogs and mias matie

water must be clean or foul for some.

her young. All mosquitoes propagate
their species j......i, the medium of
eggs. M.i y species cni be i 1. I
byx the number of . laid, Ithe man-
ner Iau shape in which they are depos-
ited in the water and often li the
cliharacter of tile egg itself. Some
mosquitoes lav ai number r of eg s and
glue them togIether so thi they II.,
on the water like a boat: others de-
deposit .1,.- egg's andl yet others
deposit < surroulled with a ge-
latinous mater like that surrouniid-
i frog's eggs. ..' we do not know
whether a mother mosquito has lraiiis.
but we do know that thli eggs are placed
on the waiver with the . r -in_ point
of the \-..,i- downward,. as even ai me-
ment's exposure to the strong sunshine
would be fatal to the newly born baby
mosquito, and we do know that the
mother always selects thlie kind of
water containing the kind of i .... that
.ii -I. the best environment, for the
full development of her offspring.
The eggs once launched upon the
proper water surface, undergo rapid
changes and under favorable -ondii-
tions hatch out the larva in from
twelve hours to six days., ......1i,. to
species.
"Be those things yon call larva.
1,i. ._.,-.' and do they cone front
mosquito i _-''" is another question
the sanitary inspector has to answer.
The x"wigglers" in the rain barrel
are nothing more or less than larva.
But every '* -. l.l is a .. i_' "'
after his own kind and Nature has
allotted its position and work in this
world as carefully and explicitly as our
own. N. ,two larva are alike in form,
native habits or necessities of environ-
ment; every one of the fifty species
has a plan of development and life laid
out for it which iliil.. front every
other of its kind.
For practical purposes all larva pos-
sess onie tra.i ill commonly, viz: that
whether bottom oi surface feeders they
must, at greater or less intervals,
inspire oxygen, and for this purpose
must come to the surface, and extrude
their breathing apparel us into thle free
air. This is where the Sanilary 1)e-
,partment catches the mosquito, for
d1, ,,_ i I i twelve days of their larval
I, i,. i i... developing iiito dut mlos-
quitoes these babies are at t mli mercy
of the man with the oil sprinklI r. The

pIln t url eran} e ( ,1.; i ., ;. .' ,, a tuft of
Wiirs which act ,- i.. I, ,-." as the
bristhls on thile flac of a eat.
One more lit tle contrivance of this
baby must I e described. Tilis is a
little valve at the opening of the
tube which remains shut. to keep out
lie water when the baby is sub-
merged and opens to admit air when
at the water surface. \We can see now
wvliat happens when a larva wants to
breathe: with a twist and a turn of
its tail it i.- 1. to the top, thrusts
its breathing tube into the air, opens
tlie valve and takes in a full charge
of oxygen, and down it goes to its
t. 1i,,. again: hut where there is a
a little fihn of oil on the water surface,
this respiratory act has a lilb.r.-mi
ending.
Before the br. .ll,. l tiube reaches
the air tlie little hairy '"feelers" have
; .I 11,.1. "back water, danger ahead,"
and without opening its air valve
down it goes. an anxious and much
i,,, -i .1 larva; it can not spend much
time li,1 '. it over, its air supply is
running short fast and up it comes,
shoves through the oil .:.t-,inI' for
breath, tlie valve relaxs and admits
o,.. oil particles.into its tube and
through its "Il it slips like molten
lead, if it has strengtli to rise Ai' ,i,1 it
is onlv to receive one more deati blow
and de ath quickly follows. Duiiii'.-
the I w"' or tliree days of its pupa state
it devwlopes two air tubes,, like ears, at
each side of its lead and loses the
one at the extremlity. Now it is
douhly susceptible and falls an easy
prey to t Irt'oil trap set for it.

would be a film over the entire sur-
rase buit that is mniifiestly impossible
to maintain. What are the chances
of escape for lie larva from this im-
perfect spread of the oils. All larva

Isthmian Baseball League.
I. C. C. WINS PENNANT AFTER IIARDSTRUGGLE.
Thli second season of the Isthmian
Baseball League just closed was
begun on the 28th of January last,
when the fr.1".. ii: teams faced the
flag to try for tihe pennant: Parnama,
Ancon, Cristobal, I.C.C. (Culebra),
Empire, (orgona and Marines. It
was noticeable from the start that it
would be a close race between I.C.C.,
Emnpii and Gigi.1.. these teams
being about evenly matched. Just
after the season strii. -d. the Panama
club dropped out of the race, and a
little later the Marines lowered their
colors and withdrew, their place lit."
taken vT the Kangaroos, leaving I.C.C.,
Enipiror. Ancon, Gureit.,. Cristobal
and the Kangaroos to finish the battle.
The regular season closed on August
18th, when the I.C.C. team beat Gor-
gona, r..rl:ring the race for the pen-
nant a tie between Empirr- and I.C.C.,
each having won 15 and lost 7 games.
A series of three games was then ar-
ranged by the League for the purpose
of settling the pennant race.
The first iam.- of this series was
played at Empire on Augnii 25th,
r.Fuilting in a victory for the LC.C.'s
by a score of 6 to 0, in one of the best
played games of the season. The
second game was |il,i.,l last Sunday
at Ancon, the I.C.U. team 1.-iniir
again victorious, this time by the
score of 4 to 2, thus taking two
straight games of the series and win-
ning the pennant for the season of
1907.
The firm of M.illr... Lupi &
Co., of Panama, presented to the
league, tlri,,iiHh President Purnell, a
very handsome silver cup, to be turned
over to the club winning the pennant,
which now goes to the boys from tlhe
heights at Culebra.
The season just ended has been an
unusually satisfactory one, both from
the standpoint of interest manifested
by the friends of the various clubs,
and the continued increase of atten-
dance at the games, besides a steady
improvement in the class of ball
played.
The friends of the I.C.C. club have
arranged for a banquet to be given in
honor of their victory at the Hotel
Tivoli, on next Saturday -l', iiiii. at
which 100 guests will be seated, the
invitations being limited to that num-
ber, although scores of others have
expressed a desire to be present. Those
in l,;ar'm- of the i.. ii, say that it will
eclipse :m. 'hiii.1i of its kind held oil
the Isthnlmus in years.
It is not known yet just when the
next season will start, but the baseball
men believes it will surpass the sea-
son of 19u7, as the interest is growing
and the rivalry is intense.

it was nearly 5.30 before the whole

The island is the largest of a group
and the pieturesqueness of its natural
beauty, as well as that of the sur-

* .,. rI'[,. village on the island, com-
pli-i,. some one hundred or more
shacks, is so situated that every but
can be seen as viewed from the deck
of the schooner, with the diminutive
spire of its lone church showing up
most prontinently,
Owing to tnie lateness of the hour
at which we landed there was very
little time for touring the island or the

be found in most of such island settle-

as tie men read the columns of your
neat little paper.
I noticed in "L. .. ._.ii .nl ,-

left, out of the list Locomotive 1'i_;-
neers as ..' I ;I_ the ''- per cent.
increase after the Ii'-, year's service
and the additional three per (cent
after that: all thle locomotive n_-

Culebra Hotel.
(Extract frooma letterto t Ile [.I.t ailan Si )
I would Ill... t, *., <. i,. a little in-
formation as to ilti a .. I served liOrr,
for wheln I left Baltimore last April to
come here the newspapers had a -_'.,1
deal to I'. about tie food served Amer-
icans. Let me say 'i._iht here that
there is no hotel in tlii :i,.- that can
serve such meals as are served here
for .', cents. hIotel could make
expenses bly -' r..ii._ the .tainl.it\ and
(q1|.dli, of food as served here for less
than 50 cents. The hotel (kitchen,
I tt i'.., ` liiiii-' room, store room,
butcher shop and bakery), is inspected
by tie district |ihl -Ii iii two or three
times a week. TFI, f...... its *1ii.lth,
how ....1.., 1, how served, dishes. uten-
sils, silver, -_1 .-- -. table linen, hotel
help, etc., are all inspected. Yet
some of the boarders are always kick-
ing. Especially in the dininir room
reserved for clerks there is always some
1:;. kiii' by clerks, who, no d1,1il,
never had a li,..r position in thlie
States than .ll, 1 I. oys or chief clerk
at some business place at $5 a week.
Admiral Rosseanu, Major I.ii,.l in'. and
Lieutenant Wood all dine here. They
never kick, no doubt because they
were used to good living before work-
ing for the United ".,i.i,. or coming to
Panama. Below is the bill of fare for
t.-ihlt'- dinner:
Oyster stew; roast turkey till ..1.
with eraitberrv sauce; beef ia tla i].1,:
sliced tomatoes. -,ii:n corn, mashed
potatoes, rice fritters with vanilla
sauce: ,'- ir.i ._- ta, st, banana cus-
tard,, .1i .. ri at rni.-l., tea, ,.1iT.-:: and
cocoa.
:... if thereis a hotel in Baltimore
that can duplicate this at the price,
and serve two or three orders of any
dish if aboarder ask for them, I would
like to know which hotel it is, so that
I may know where to stop when I again
get back to Baltimore.

EARLY DAYS ON THE ISTHMUS

From an Address by W. C. Haskins, of the
Department of Material and Supplies, before
his fellow-citizen', at Oelwein, Iowa, in July
last.
TIn- i,. -1 quarters .,--.i-i-.'1 me after
my arrival on the Isthmus, July 1,
I'. 14. were in an 111 ).11 ward at Ancon
Hospital, which lies just outside of
Panama city. "l,, i,. were as near as
I can recollect about tliirty -1 2..-1 iron
beds of French make, i ii .I hospital,
4tvle, a row on each ,i..-f the room.
Our conveniences there were far from
de luxe. One -ir.. hi'-l I .,.l 1,. chair


THE CANAL RECORD

was made to do duty for tlie entire
bunch, and1 this useful article was
generally r.i.,ir in the morning ,l,-..-
side the bed of the one who was last, in
at night. We had but one laii p. and
this was usually empty. There were
no mirrors, and tlie fortunate posses-
sor of an individual looking glass was
to be envied. Some combed their
hair and shaved with the aid of thlie
.,: in.L glass windows backed up
against the wall. There were but two
washstands for all of us, but thanks
to the French, there were a couple of
pretty decent shower baths. We lived
in constant dread of the alacran, or
...|.'I.,. who seems to have a pon-
* I11i i- buildings long unused, and
for going to sleep in your clothlies or
shoe after having retired for the night.
One ..i,' 'i,.. one of these fellows'
which have a stinger where their tail
ought to be, dropped froni the ceiling
to the wash basin, where I was per-
forming illy ablutions. On another
occasion I shook one out of t lie fold
.-' my collar, where he had been enjoy-
ing a quiet snooze.

An English Tribute.
Mr. Winston Churchill, who must Ibe
regarded as a well informed authority not
unduly prejudiced in favor of America, paid
an impressive tribute the other day to the
etficieney of American sanitation on the
Istlinhmus of Panama. In October, 1905. lie
reported to Parliament there were 22,000
employees on the Canal, of whom 4.000
were non-immune: yet only one case of vel-
loxw fever occurred, and it was not fatal.
By way of contrast, in October, 18S4, there
were 19,243 employees, of whom only 2,706
were tion-inmmune, among whiim in were S4
cases of fellow fever and 21 deaths. Of
course much of the credit for this improved
state of't i r- must e giveii to the general
advance of the world i"' .... led (ri. if germ
diseases. But, as Mr. Cl, -. i!, -. ,1, much
must also be given to the enforcement of
sanitary laws and -:,:.' ." of the anti-
mosquito regulations by the American
administrators on tle Isthiuis.-New York

TYPHOID FEVER AND MALARIA.

Circular of Information Concerning
Them.
TYPHOID FEVER.
Typhoid fever is caused by a small plant
that gets into the human intestine and
there produces a poison that causes the
fever. The typhoid plant is scientifically
known by the name of "Typhoid Bacillus."
This plant is smaller than the point of a
needle and the use of a very high power
microscope is necessary to see it.
Typhoid fever is communicated only
from one maan to another by this plant
passing from a man sick with typhoid
fever into the stomach of a well man. This
comes about, .;.u,. .il., through the water
one drinks. The stools or urine of a manila
with a mild case of typhoid fever or one
just beginning to have typhoid fever are
passed on the ground, the rain washes
these into the nearest stream and the man
drinking from this stream drinks the
typhoid plant and thus becomes infected.
If all drinking water is boiled, the Ty-
phoid Bacillus is killed, and the water
becomes safe; if the watershed of a reser-
voir is so cared for that no typhoid organ-
ism can get into it, it is also safe. All
the water used in our water systems comes
from such reservoir and can lie drunk
with safety, but most of the steams near
the line of the canal, particularly those
streams from Pedro .d., I to Bas Obispo,
receive the washings from thecountry thick-
ly occupied by our laborers and are therefore
very unsafe and apt to give typhoid fever.
Typhoid fever can also be coununicated
by ii.-- which have been about a contaim-
inated privy or locality, thus getting the
typhoid organisms oni their legs, and then
alighting on food which is being eaten by
man; or can be communicated in nlany of
the hundreds of ways in which the organ-
ism can get on the hands and thus be
transmitted to food.
To avoid typhoid fever, it is advisable,
thi. .,r>. to drink boiled water when
practicable, or drink water from the water
taps furnished by the Conimmission-these
taps all bring water from a carefully pro-
tected water shed. Avoid drinking water
from streams along the Canal, particularly
those streams which come from an occupied
watershed; always wash the hands with
soap and water before eating; protect the
food as much as possible after it has been
cooked from contamination from flies; use
a privy, when possible, both for urinating
and defecation, so as to avoid contamina-
ting the ground near where cien are work-

MALAIIA.
Malaria is caused by a small animal
which gets into the blood and there secretes
a poison, which causes the fever. This
animal can .'ll live in men or in a mos-
liiili. if it gets into other surroundings, it
di.-. and it can only live in one particular
kind of mosquito, the Anopheles. The
mosquito to become infected has to bite
some nman whlo has malaria-only the
female mosquito bites. A mosquito in blit-
in.' first injects her saliva into the wound
lti.i she draws the blood; with her saliva
she injects the minute animal that causes
the fever. The little animal multiplies very
rapidly as soon as it gets into the human


THE CANAL RECORD

blood, secretes its poison, and in a few
days causes the fever.
To avoid malaria, therefore, you should
avoid being bitten by an infected Ano-
pheles mosquito. Live in a screened
house; always use a mosquito bar at night.
The malaria mosquito is a night nmos-
quito and bites principally after dark,
therefore, expose yourself as little as pos-
sible to the bites of the mosquitoes at
night.
This particularly applies to the native
villages. As most of the natives have ma-
laria, mosquitoes biting them become infect-
ed, therefore, a man who is bitten by, an
Anopheles mosquito in a native village is
much more apt to have fever tlian if bitten
by an anopheles out in the country away
froni any habitation.
Quinine is a substance which is deadly
poison to the malaria animal, but not poi-
sonous to man, therefore, take about three
grains of quinine every day. This quinine
rapidly gets. into the blood and does no
harm to man, but if a malaria mosquito
happens to inject the malaria animal into
this man's blood, the animal is at once
killed and does no harm to the man.

It is respectfully -,, 2- -t.. to the proper
authorities by meai,- .I . ;ir valued pu"li,

accidents.

with baths, electric I ,i hi. and toilet
rooms, aInd the hbord is exceptionally

iimake it as pleasant as possible for t lie
Imien, anti I have not seen a man that,
was not I I;-'I .1 as for nfvself, I like
it very much. This is a1 pretty town.
I an stationed at ( Ilebra, which is

Colon and is onl ( k -i ri miles I ... ,

trance to thle (anal. I I- r. are twenty-
eight shovels in this one cut. It is a
great sight to see so limany .,1.;i_ in
one place at the same time. Molie
f the shovels are 200 feet above the
others The Ii I week I was here I
was on a shovel that was on tlie top
lifi. and yol1 could look I'.. it the
sMlokestackls of a dozen other shovels
below yol.

have all been killed a year ago. I
have not seen one11 since I calle.
The I.ili1- are cool-iin fact. youl

houses would rent for $50 per month

rock and earth are so mixed that it will
be necessary to remove the earth in the
dry with the rock.
The proximity of the river, its relative
position in respect to the Canal hed, and
Ilihe inc. iii it and suddenness of its floods
are expected to cause situations which
will vary with the local conditions existing
at the different peninsulas.
Work has been commenced on the penin-
sulas atT-.I ril II San Pablo andCainmeto.
The excavation at Tabernilla is nearly
completetf to full .. ili I'1 to the present
Sr;oeId of the Panama railroad at that
point. The remaining ten feet of depth
can not be taken out until the relocation
of the Panama railroad is completed.
On the San Pablo peninsula, which is
about a mile long, the clearing has been
completed, the dump opened and one shovel
has commenced operations.
On the Caimecto peninsula, opposite Sail
Pablo, and also about a mile long, a
strip has been cleared and the tracks and
dumps are being developed. A shovel will
conunence operations on this peninsula at
the end of this month.

Bids for Cement.
The Department of Locks and Dams has
been ;. -ti,..iti:- the question of procur-
ing cement in the States, and it seems now
that it will bepracticable to procure cement
in clinker form, transport it to the Isthinus,
crush it and grind it here, and thus avoid
the cooperage cost, which is, at least, one-
third of the cement cost proper.
Bids will probably be requested soon for:
First-Furnishing cement, delivered in barrels
or bags, t Colon.
Second-Furnishingh it similarly packed, and
delivered at any port onl the Atlantic, iulf or
Pacific coasts.
Third-For fuirnlishing it on the Isthmus in
packages provided by the Conmmission. This
method would probably involve making the
cement clinker in the States, shipping it to the
Isthmus and grinding it here.
Results of these bids ill. of course, de-
termine the policy of the Commission in
the matter.

Gaitun's Highest Steam Shovel Average.
The four steam shovels excavating mate-
rial from the proposed site for the Gatun
Locks removed on September 17, -1 -'I
cubic id.1- averaging 1 t*- cubic yards
per shovel.

Panama Railroad Changes.
The present main line of the Panama
railroad is to be diverted at a point just
north of Paraiso and carried across the
channel to the Canal prism on a trestle so
that the Canal Commission may use the
present main line between Paraiso and
Pedro Miguel for the construction of the
locks to be built at that place. This work
wil' 1. 1.. in within a few days and willI
be e ii,,,iL. til within three months.
On SP|i)Lcnal..r 30, the railroad h,4 It1
l-l.; tlh.. niw double track between I ii'..
:,nl I, di.. This is the last strelh of
d. l.ub! track that it is proposed to! ... .. .


the present main line of the railroad. A
-" 'U.,utr track" of 500) feet will be used
over the "black swamp."
Work is to beheguniat once to convert the
present terminal yards in Pananma into a
modern diamond yard of nine tracks.
When this work is finished all of the old
railroad will have been rebuilt and re-bal-
lasted and the Panaain terminal will equal
the new one at Colon.

New Band Stands Ordered.
At the ineetint of tile Isthunian Canal
Commission held on September '",. a resolu-
tion was passed directing that band stands
be erected at Las Cascadas, E[.,ir... Bas
Obispo, Paraiso, Ancon. and Cristobal.
It is understood that the band stand at
Aneon will be placed in front of the Tivoli
Hotel, opposite the entrance. The one at
Cristobal will be placed in front of the Com-
mission club house.

New Freight Houses Necessary.
The unexpected increase in the amount
of the local and Coninission freight handled
by the Panama railroad has made it neces-
sary to erect at once a new freight house
at Empire 30 by 70 feet. Similar new
houses will have to be erected in the imme-
diate future at Culebra, Las Cascadas
and G(orgona.

Obispo and Camacho Diversions.
Plans have been approved by the Chief
.1i.....:i I for the Obispo diversion to the
Chagres river. When this new channel is
completed it will take care of aU the water
east of the Canal and north of the Conti-
nental Divide which now runs into the
C .I1 i .ll 1 ,I i .. ;rhi the progressof the
work. Part of this water was taken care
ofby the Frenchin a channelnear theCanal
prism. TheConiinission last year started
new channel further away from the prism
and have completed it from near the Conti-
nental Divide to a point opposite Cunette
where it now empties into an old French
diversion channel and then into the Canal
at Las Cascadas.
The water from the drainage area east of
the Canal opposite Empire has several
times broken through from the French
channel into the Canal. The worst break
occurred opposite Empire during the Presi-
dent's visit, half burying a steam shovel
and a train of cars and flooding the
Canal. The new channel is now completed
north of this point so that no mnre trouble
is anticipated.
The work is being pushed to the north of
(Cunette. A new bridge has been completed
across the old French diversion opposite
White House and track will soon be laid
across this bridge following a grade made
by the old French t- *, 1' -i As soon as
this track is laid connections will be made
with approved new channel and several
steam shovels will begin work atonce. It is
the intention to complete this channel to a
point about one-half mile north of Las
('ascadas, where it will empty into the head

Plumbing Operations.
SThereport of the Superintendent of Plumb-
ing shows that since M i... 1904, when the
first American plumber entered the service
of the Commission on the Isthmus, over
1400 Conunission houses have been equipped
with modern sanitary plumbing; 173,667
l;ittiii.- Ii %,- been installed, and the amount
of pipe used aggregates more than 75
miles in length.

Commission Paint Work.
The amount of paint and kindred sup-
plies needed on the Isthmus by the Conimis-
sign is not generally realized by those who
(1o not consider that here it is necessary to
Paint all those parts of the interior walls
which in the United States would be covered
with wallpaper or plaster. The It-iJl,.r.irn
nature of most o(f the structures makes it
necessary to paint the surfaces of floor joists
that would not he painted if the buildings
were what is called sealed. There are now
:,l)out 652 painters in the service of the
Commission and figures prepared by the
S" I' i, ..h. ih t (,f Painting indicate that

ing her acceptance of thle office upon her
return from the ..' when a committee
of ladies would w:vit upon her. As Mirs.

September Steam Shovel Records.
The steam shovels which made the high-
est record for the month of September, 24
working days., were as follows:
95-ton Class-No. 207, 11,284 cubic yards
of earth, 16,927 cubic yards of rock; total,
28,211 cubic yards. No. 202, 13,485 cubic
yards of earth, 13,486 cubic yards of rock;
total, 26,971 cubic yards.
70-ton Class-No. 122, 2,912 cubic yards
of earth, 21,370 cubic yards of rock; total,
24,282 cubic yards. No. 110, no cubic
yards of earth, 17,497 cubic yards of rock;
total, 17,497 cubic yards.
These figures are below those of July,
with 26 working days, and of August with
27 working days, which were published in
THE CANAL RECORD of September 11.
To Increase Capacity of Rio Grande
Reservoir.
In order to increase the storage capacity
of the Rio Grande reservoir, the Panama
railroad is proceeding to raise three feet
Bridge No. 56, at the spillway dam, which
will enable the dam and spillway to be
raised accordingly, and will increase the
storage capacity of the reservoir nearly
150,000,000 gallons, as compared with the
amount stored at the beginning of the last
dry season.
The Sea-Going Suction Dredge "Ancon."
The dredge Ancon is a sea-going suction
dredge, constructed by the Maryland Steel
Company of Sparrows Point, Md. Its
length is 288 feet, molded beam 47% feet,
molded depth 25 feet, and it is propelled by
twin screws. There are two 20-inch cen-
trifugal pumps which discharge the dredged
material into two bins ofa normiiilcapacity
of about 2,000 cubic yards. The dredge is
capable of digging to a depth of 4.0 feet,
and its cost, delivered at Sparrows Point,
Md., was $362.125 witi.out equipment.
She arrived at Cristobal ir. A.ueut, inakiini
the run from Sparrows Point, under her
own steam, in about nine days. She has
been working in the Canal entrance in
Limon bay ever since her arrival. She
operates in a stretch of the entrance chan-
nel about a mile and a quarter in length
and 500 feet in width. Starting at the
inner end and in..ving slowly seaward with
her pumps in olpcrati'lu and her two drags
sucking up mud from the bottom, by the
time she reaches deep water her bins have
received all the material which will readily
settle. The suction pipes are then raised
and *he steams out to sea off Toro Point,

IEvery S:atturlray it is aces'. iF' tor coal the
vessel, and oil that day she average es only
from one to six round trips, the rest of the
lime being eols1ed in co. ling.
Another se-going driedge, the Cudlt' bra,
precisely similar to the. Ancon has just been
tested at SparCows Poit, .Md. and will sail
for Panam11a via Cap Hrn, under her own
steamn, early in October. If all goes well, it
is expCtedl that she will arrive at Panama
about January 1, 1908.

Satisfactory Work by the RebWilt Dredg .
The rehabilitated French dredge No. 11-.,
described in TmE C ASL RNicoau of Sep-
tember 25, wats put in operation in tIhe
new channel offiNaos island in the Pacifi
on October 2. Her performance is even
more satisfactory than was anticip ated
The engines and tran mission ilmach nery rn
smoothly, the control is simple and
and the consumption of con: cc om ial
for the power developed.
Owing to the lon hal, hthe cl pets, or
miud barges working with the i, i.' ar:
unable to dispose of all the mater al! tat
could he removed by this machine iand
therefore no figures can be given .as to m:ax-
imum output for twenty-four hours friom
actual test. Thirty-five minutes are con-
sumed in I '!I a single clapet whose h p-
per has a capacity of250 cu l yar ds. Ar-
rangements are being made to add newx
barges to the fleet. One Frenchl balre hias
been rebuilt and will be placed in comims-
sion in the near future, and th e work of
overhauling another has be1 n. \ When
this shall have been done the iou tput of the
11 '-d. will be consierably increase d.
Very little time is lost'. in placing or mov-
ing the dredge owing to an easily con-
trolled system of winches. The movement f
dredging equipment on the Pacific side is
quite a difficult problem, for, in addition
to allowing fir two 20-foot ti es e aci
day it is necessary to govern thle forward
and lateral progress within a very exw f et,
in order that the businesss end" of tie
bucket ladder may have proper contact
with the mud bank which is being cut
away.

pany five years ago, excavated in 2 2

To sum up your Board can not find that the
prevalence of pneumonia is effected by;
(1) The time of year.
(2) The altitude. Tabernilla about 12 feet
above sea level and absolutely flat, and Gor-
gonsa Encampment, about 105 feet high and
well drained. gave the highest proportion ofcases,
while Crist bal, La Boca and Corozal, all conm-
parable with the first, and Las Cascadas, Pedro
M1igu-I and Paraiso, comparable with the
second gave low percentages.
(3) The prevalence of malaria.
(4) House inspection-by previouscase.
(5" Deficient ventilation and overcrowding,
as they exist in Commission quarters.
(i) Exposure to draft-as they exist in Com-
mission quarters.
That it is decidedly more prevalent in men
newly arrived-under three nmonths-than in
older residents.
That it is mainly due to the presence on the
Is thus of an infectious catarrh, which natur-
.ally is espcially prevalent among the new
arrivals, and which predisposes them to pneu-
mtonia.
That the process is generally the production
of an inflammlationofthe accessory sinuses-due
to the catarrh--the mucous membrane of which
i; thus fitted for the reception and growth of
the pneumococcus, and this serves as the atrium
of entrance for that organism.
Since we can do nothing to prevent the em-
ploye contractingthis catarrh we must do what
is possible to render its course, and hence its
Cfiects milder:
(1) That the role of the infectious catarrh
prevalent on the Isthmus in the cauzation of
pneumonia is clearly recognized, and that there-
fore it is treated by district physicians with that
knowledge before them and considered as a
graver disease than it has hitherto been.
(') That as far as possible the newly arrived
colored laborers be grouped at places where dry-
ing houses are located, so that clothes and bed-
ding may be rapidly dried.
Indeed the general introduction of drying
houses would, we believe, render the catarrhal
symptoms of this infection less severe, andthere-
fore less likely to lead to pneumonia.
(3) That blanket and a piece of matting or
canvas, or two blankets be issued to the col-
ored man on his arrival, unless le has sufficient
bed covering, and charged to his account.
Two coverings are advised because it is advis-
able to put some fabric between the cloth of the
bunk and the man. The piece of matting is bet-
ter (warmer) than thecanvas, and has been used
to cover canvas cots with great advantage by
thile Iospital Division. Naturally either is
cheaper, and less good, than a second blanket.
No loss will be caused to the laborer by mak-
ing him take a blanket. In general he buys one
about the third or fourth month, paying more
for it than he would for one from the Commis-
sary, and which lie would have at the most
critical time, for him, on the Isthmus.
A fK w bunks have bottoms of iletal strips, and
no cloth. These especially ought to be covern-d
by some non-conducting fabric,

MACHINE EFFICIENCY.

Much Labor Saved by It in the Culebra
Division.
By D. W. BOLICH, DIvisION ENGtINtR,.
On the basis of the work acconiplishicd
Slu ii ;.' thi final month of the last dry season,
the I. .. IIIL' notes show the number of
men that would be required to do the con-
struction work in the Culebra Division
without the use of machines.
AS TO DRILLING, BLASTING AND LOADING
MATERIAL.
Steam Shovels-Sixty are of the 70-ton
and 95-ton type, the 70-ton having 21/
and 3-cubic yard buckets and the 95-ton
5 cubic yards. We have had shovels that
loaded as much as 2.173 cubic yards of
mixed rock and dirt (about half and half)
in one day of eight hours. Of the 44
shovels we averaged daily at work during
the month of Mari4i. each averaged 18,600
cubic yards forthe innio h, this representing
for a day for each shovel 744 cubic yards.
Say a good man would load 6 cubic yards
in eight hours, this would equal the work
done by 124 men and the work done by 441
shovels, in loading only, would represent
the work of 5,456 laborers, as against 298
laborers used as pit men in moving up the
shovel and clearing track and firemen, the
two white men on each shovel (engineer and
cranemen) about equaling the number of
white foremen necessary to handle 5,457
laborers.
Bl. tiig- \nt..thlr point that should be
remembered in using the steam shovel as
a means of excavating the Cut, is the ques-
tion of drilling and blasting the ground into
such sizes or weight, as that men could load
same on cars. A man will generally handle
a rock weighing 150 to 200 pounds, or 11/2
to 2 cubic feet; a steam shovel will handle
rock weighing 21,000 pounds, or 189 cubic
feet (taking weight of rock at only 3,000
pounds to the cubic yard, which is very
low.)
Comparing with men loading, the fact
that we would have to do fully twice, if
not three times as much drilling as for
shovels must be considered, and also that
while we can, for a steam shovel, blast a
cubic nar.d of material with one-third
pounds of explosives, for men, we would
use a pound of explosives for a cubic
yard of material loaded. Therefore, on our
drilling and blasting, instead of 700 to 800
men, it would take 2,100 to 2,400 men,
and instead of using, as in the month of
March, 260,000 pounds of explosives for an
output of 815,270 cubic.yards, it would
have been necessary to use 780,000 pounds,
or more, of explosives to do this part of
the excavating by hand.
AS TO DUMPING OR GETTING RID OF MATERIAL.
Spreaders and Trackthrowers-0On the
dump ground as to tracks: These are laid
by hand and do not involve the question of
machinery. After the track is once laid,
it becomes necessary to keep throwing it
out to the edge of the dump in order to
waste more material. In throwing this
track, we use a track throwing machine.
This machine will throw 5,400 lineal feet
(or 120 feet over a mile) of track, 9 feet in
eight hours, and represents the work of 500
to 600 men in same Ikn thi of time. This
machine is handled by three white men and
six laborers, and as 5,400 feet of track


throwneach day 9 f.ct on an 18-foot height
of dunip w midl take care of the daily out-
put at this time, this inaciine would shov.',
therctf,rc, asavingin the number Of laborers
of from 500 to 600 men throwing by hand.
The nine men op ritin-i this machine are
about equal in number to the firemen that-
would be required to direct aga.n if 1500
to 600 men.
In uilodiid;ii material from cars with
plows and unl.aders, i material gain is
made in less number of laborers needed to
take care of the output. The best record
that has been made here by a single
unloader has been 16 trains in eight
hours, or .3,0.)o cubic yards. This shows
that 7 unloaders and plows would take
care of our daily output as to month of
March, and would mean that 28 white
men and 12 laborers and firemen, with the
machines, could unload 32,000 cubic yards
a day. Estimating that a man would un-
load 12 cubic yards a day of eight hours
by hand (as against 6 cubic yards loading i
it would mean that by old me tiids, nr
unloading by hand, it would take 2,660
laborers with necessary white foremen,
(say 10ii as against machines with 28
white men and 43 laborers and firemen,
This has actually been accomplished by one
machine. But even assuming that 20 ma-
chines were used the comparison would
show that the machines with 120 laborers
would accomplish as much in unlinding as
2,660 laborers by hand, the white men on
machine being about equal in number to
the white foremen handling the laborers.
After material has been plowed off cars, it
is then pushed away from the track by
spreaders, which throws the material out
from the track on which cars have been
pl.)owed. from 9 to 12 feet, and cuts down
the new material to the bottom of the ties
of the track on which the spreader is work-
ing.
This machine, in a way, does not save
handling all the material by hand as, nat-
urally, with track thrown out to edge of
dumps most of the material runs down side
or slope of dump, but it does save in
the cost by not making it necessary to
throw the track to the edge of the dump
every cubic yard per foot of the length of
the dump and thereby stopping the use
of the dump every hour or so; else the mate-
rial plowed off cars would have to be
handled by hand.
This machine really expedites the pro-
gress of the work, but to accomplish this
by hand would involve, without doubt,
the use of 3,000 laborers as against eight
machines, 16 white men and 24h laborers
and firemen.
AS TO HANDLING OF MATERIAL.
Hauling the material from the h;,. l'.l. or
the startni ag point of the output, to the dis-
posal, or the dumping of same, Ijriniig i the
transportation or train service, and the
modern engine and car as compared with
the engine and car of 25 years ago.
The engines as used by the French c.nnpa-
nies, and which have been rebuilt by us (i. e.
the standard type used by them), will haul
10 or 12 of the old French dump cars, which
hold (as we estimate in our reports) 4 cubic
y.-I Id, or would represent a train carrying
4,8 cubic yards .jf initerinl
Our engines lhaiul 20 \\%estrin duuipcars of
12 cubic yards each or 240 cubic yards of


material per train, or 17 flat cars of 18
cubic yards each, or 306 cubic yards mate-
iial; or to haul rur present output of 32,000
cubic yards daily, it would take 1i66 French
trains, as against 133 trains of Western
dumps, or 104. trains of flat cars of our
American equipment.
NEW AND OLD METHODS COMPARED.
As a comparison of methods used by the
French (which of course, were the methods
in vogue twenty.five years ago, on con-
structiun work, even in the United States,
or .)in could -say hand work only), with
the modern machinery and 7,000 men,
superintendents. foremnen, timekeepers, la-
biorers, etc., all tuld. on the Culebra Cut,
we are getting out and disposing of, as to
rn.iinth ol March, S15,270 cubic yards as
against 2x2.52, cubic yards by the French
at the height of their operation when they
took that amount out of Cul-braCut none
i.nnth with 16,000 to 1,.000 irccord not
quite clear laborers alone, not incl'dimg
their superintendents, foremnen, etc al-
though probably of this number ,i laborers
50 per cent was the efficient working force,
jor 9.000 laborers. The results per month
v.-,uld be per laborer 32 cubic yards each,
under the French as the output of every
man conrnecttd with the Culebra Cut of
116 cubic yards each per irn.,ntli under the
A imericanis
It lhioud be considered herc that our
figures are from actual results and not from
v.hat the wrlking plant sh.iul.ld o. It is
in.,t considered at this time that the steam
shovrels arc \oirl:in.: m,.re than 60 per cent
of the time they should. on account of all
the ronjlli stick n::.;a,-ry to ke.p the
hIn ,vcls going t,-, their full capacity not
la.'ing been received, though ordered.

THE WOMAN'S MOVEMENT.
Fui1t5 I'.'.i..,m:i tn and Organization of.
',' no I, .- I liil.- ci the Cainil Zone.
Byr Xiis J. I XACKLI T I :,T-.
The work of organization of women's
clubs in the Canal Zone under thlie direction
of Miss IHelen Varickl Boswell has gone fir-
ward w'ithi gratifying activity and enthu-
siasm during the past week.
On Wednesday, October 2, a meeting was
helid in the club room of the Commission
liotel at Pedro 't .... x when thie resident
women turned out in force. Miss BoswellI
briefly stated the oiijet of her visit to the
Isthmus with reference to the benefits that
would be derived frotm organized clubs in
the Zone. The meeting was not large and
Miss Boswell was able to obtain the indi-
vidual expression of each lady present. It
was the unanimous opinion that such
.. .. .1 ,i ..... v.. i... a crying need among the
women here and much gratification was
expressed that some one had come to
take the initiative steps, which none of tlhe
resident women felt able t o do .i l.... ,
each stated that she was willing to nndler-
take her portion of work in the organiza-
tion.
1'.11 ,. this preliminary, the organiza-
tion was formed,the i..',.' ',- officers heiing
voted in: Mrs. I'...I .t-, president, Mrs.
Schick, general secretary, and Mrs. W [i ,
treasurer.
It was arranged to hold a social meeting
on October 9, when a musical programme
will be given, and Miss Boswell will give a
short address, in which she will enlarge
upon the scope of the Pedro '!,. .' Wo-
man's Club. Additional officers will be
elected, dues decided upon, and other busi-
ness transacted at this meeting.
Paraisi was the next place visited and
the ladies were assembled in the club
room upon Miss Boswell's arrival. The
same eagerness to become an organization
which had been shown earlier in thle after-
noon manifested itself here. Several sug-
.-; i.. were made by the ladies to Miss
Boswell upon matters which they felt would
need conime within the scope or organization
work, to the benefit of their coiun in ity
and become a part of club effort. When
the point of. -*: ,,i. ,-. was reached, Mrs.
J. C. Barnett, one of the first women to
make her home in the Zmone, was tunani-
mously elected president, Mrs. F. R. Cozier,
secretary, and Mrs. J. R. Barnes, treasurer.
On Thursday, October 3, thesecond meet-
ing at Empire was held, when the organiza-
tion was ".' f''. 1..I as in the other instances.
The following ladies were elected as office rs:
Mrs. F. M. l. I... '.. president; M1rs. E. P.
i ._., vice president; Mrs. J. F. MeTyier,
secretary, and Mrs. R. Rainwater, treasurer.
The meeting was protracted, many points
being taken up for discussion. Im. .... her
informal talk, Miss Boswell outlined in a
measure the work of the club within the
scope of its four departments as above.
Following the discussion, Miss ,oswell,
who had acted as chairmanli, turned the
office over to Mrs.. I...,. I as p1)residlent of
the newly formed I .,' ., "., and a busi-
ness ii"...'. ii ;Ti i,. i ,i i1 order xwass
held, ith.. ..i .*. ii of the constitution was
considered seriatim, each clause being voted
rill la

meeting on the first and third ,li,,- I ,


THE CANAL RECORD

of each month. A committ..... f d.1 ...t,
was appointed to meet at a -.. .> L .1 .,r.
euce to be held at the Hotel If.. i .... *n i .
her 12, when the question of affiliation of
the Canal Zone Woman's Club with the
General Federation of Women's Clubs in
the United States will be decided. Each of
the new clubs organized is enthusiastic on
this point and all are willing and eager
for its accomplishment.
The women seem to enjoy and derive
much inspiration from Miss Boswell's very
inf rmal talks, and are entirely in sympathy
with the idea no clib comradeship which she
adv ocates, and the emphasis ofsocial spirit
as the fundamtentalni principle of club life.
11e ladies of Gatun met in the Connmmis-
sio n Hotel on i',,1, October 4, at 2.30
o'clock, and after hearing fronom Miss Bos-'
well of the purposes for which the clubs at
other points were organized, twenty ladies
expressed their desire that Gatun should
have a woman's club for social and educa-
tional work. M1s. Chester Harding was
una nimniously chosen as president of the
Gatun Woman's Club, and other officers
elected were: Mrs. I. L. Elliott, vice presi-
dent; Mrs. A. B. Shippy, secretary, and
Mrs. O. L Brownell, Ireasurer. The presi-
ilenit appointed Mrs. R. C. Nownes, as press
secretary.
Several lines were discussed and the ladies
were enthusiastic in the belief that the club
would prove both useful to the community
and interesting and instructive to the nimem-
bers.
Mrs. il nI asked Miss Boswell to give
a further talk on such club efforts as it
would be suitable to make in a small c om-
munity and the ladies were k en in asking
questions and giving opinions as to howe
the elhnb should be conducted. Mrs. Harding
called the first business meeting of the club
for Tuoesday, the 8th instant. All the ladies
present wereanxious t' i
a Commission club house operated by tlte
Y. M. C. A. similar to those located at
other centres may be erected, feeling that
there is great need for such a s ocial centre
for both the men and women of atun.

Criticism.
Janitor service is very poor in the bache-
lor quarters, and it would seem desirable to
affect sons. ui,1. i -'I .'ii'., with the Govern-
ment of 'I["ii' .s '. I. Is.h, Chinese servants
might be secured for general housework.
Comment.
The janitor service is not ideal, but the
standard of. iL 0 ,- has greatly improved,
and a system of inspection has been put in
force, whereby all rooms are scrubbed out
tI it'. i l -1.1.. The laws of the Panama
i'. .piil-, i.r..d .- L the introduction of Chi-
nese.
Criticism.
There was much 1;-- i-F, i,,.., .]..,i-. the
American bachelors who were sleeping upon
cots. All had been promised beds, 1II many
had not yet received them. There was also
dissatisfaction because of the inability to
get furniture.
Comment.
There are practically 8,000 white em-
ployes of the Commission and Panama
Railroad Company, not all of whom are
Americans. Possibly 2 per cent of this num-
ber are -I1.,ii. on cots, but this fact is
due to the loss of a steamer with 128 beds
on board. All of the men are provided
with mattresses, even those who are sleep-
i '..- I. cits. There has been a shortage of
lsi ni'.ur., but it is due first to the burning
of the Mount Hope storehouse with a large
quantity of furniture, and second to the
delay of filling all kinds of orders in the
United States, which has extended from
three to six months after the date of agreed
delivery.
Criticism.

Copper screen is required in the climate
of the Isthmus, where everything rusts, and
yet iron screen has been received largely.
It was observed on new quarters and hos-
pitals to have split in a few weeks. It has
been accepted in a spirit of desperation as
better than nothing.
Comment.
Nothing but brass .s-.:' in;ii has been or-
dered or used. Some of the Ir:'- -s, .i-'. ni',
has proved defective and 1p' i i,,' r I.. tl,
same withheld from the contractor.
Criticism.
A' iii I. t 'l ..' rij tenement house laws,
the air space in quarters for laborers should
not be less than 400 cubic feet for each
adult. In only one type of house has that
number been allowed. The i,, i'.,rits of cots
are of canvas, but many ar,. dv ,,li of metal
lattice work on which the men lie with
nothing underneath them. It was s-hc,.ill'.
stated that 1,000 metal cots were'secured
as an experiment, that they have now been
adopted as the standard type, and that
more have been ordered.
Comment.
There is not a camp on the Isthmus where
there is not over 400 feet of air space per
man. With the exception of two camps,
none of the laborers' barracks contains 75
per cent of its capacity, and some camps
are entirely deserted. There is a super-
abundance of laborers' quarters on the
Isthmus. A trial order of 1,000 metal cots
was placed, but 1lsu. were found to be un-
satisfactory, and are being covered with
canvas as fast as it can be obtained. An
effort has been made, tii.tiu..i. -' ill'.. to can-
cel an orderfor anotlh.r 1,1,11 .'.)ts, but
those will be covered with canvas after
they arrive. They have not been made the
standard I1 t.., and they constitute less than
10 per .,ot .1 the total number of cots or
bunks available.
Criticism.
In the location of ,,ip- the recommen-
dations of the .si.t ,l Department have
not always been alist. .1. and they have
sometimes been pl..icol .ii low ground,

Common t.
The use of brick paving in Colon in place
of macadam would have increased the cost
several times, and the water rates to amori
tise thie cost of such expensive pave'inlt
would have been prohibitive. 1' .. is

The siublsist,. ce ...perations of the month
shi.ed a I.,ls of $2 1423.40, due to the fact
tlit there .' ere 0lk. 30 days in ., lri lc,..r,
inludiii t".' .e Suni,l.ia and one holiday.
Tihe pai\ r.-II 'ind, I. penses of the mess houses
vrere about nas ui-'d, but the revenue fell off
appieciably. Rceipt.s a'ppr'caiu,.-te $5,000


a day, and the loss of receipts for one or
two days is sufficient to ttrn the balance
sheet from a profit to a loss. It is believed
that the operations for October will show
a p .fit that will more than offset the Sep-
tember loss.
The postal money order sales for Septenm-
ber amounted to $332,287.95, an increase
of .T2",,-- :"over those for Auglust. The
collections to be turned into the Zone treas-
ury by the Revenue Department aggregated
$5,628.23,an increase of$564.92over those
for August. The average daily consump-
tion of water in Panama during September
was 7:'1. ,, gallons, and in Colon 292,567
gallons.
Coal Consumption on the Isthmus.
The consumption of cpal on the Isthmus
amounts to '.' ,,U tons a month, or 1,000
tons per calendar day. Of this amount
4,000 tons aroused by the Panama railroad,
12,000 tons by the Transportation Depart-
ment of the Isthmnian Canal Commission,
- '1111 tons by the Mechanical Department
of the Commission, 4,000 tons are supplied
to the various steamship lines at La Boca,
and 2.000 tons are used for miscellaneous
purposes.
The coal situation the latter part of Sep-
tember assumed a very serious aspect, as the
reserve was exhausted and there was diffi-
culty in having the transports recognized at
the United States terminals. It is hoped,
however, that the crisis is past, and efforts
are being made to secure a requisite number
of colliers to make good the existing short-
age in the reserve supply. The colliers Aln-
mere with 5,000 tons, and Aiistor with
4,700 tons are unloading at Cristobal. The
Cunaxa, Vortigern, Sangstad and Ran are
reported as en route with 18,300 tons.
Becauseof the shutting down of the mines
between December 20 and January 12, the
reserve supply must be sntliciently great, if
the prosecution of the work is not to be in-
terfered with, t) tide over this interval.
Thetorpedo flotilla, comprising six United
States torpedo boats, that is to accompany
the fleet from the Atlantic to the Pacific
coast, will take about 1,000 tons of coal at
LaBoca when it arrives there some months
hence.
Gold Commissary at Cristobal.
A commissary for the exclusive use of gold
employes is to be opened at Cristobal
about December 1, in time for the holiday
trade. It will deal entirely in men's fur-
nishing goods and clothing, and articles for
1-i. -, wearing apparel, shoes, etc. There
will be a v..ii in, room for ladies from the
Line, in which they will be made comfort-
able until the departure of trains.


Watershed Inspection.
A thorough inspection of theCamachoand
Rio Grande watersheds has been completed
by the Police Department and all human
inhabitants have been removed therefrom
with the exception of a single I'.iil)' of
natives who have inherited rights of prop-
erty, they and their ancestors having been
living there for many years. Negotiations
are in progress with this family for their
removal which is likely to be accomplished
soon, and then both watersheds will be
entirely free of human habitation. Several
families of "squatters," who had no prop-
erty rights, have been removed from the
stream between the Camacho dam and
Empire. In future monthly inspection of
the watersheds will be made and they will
be kept clean of human habitation in order
that all danger of contamination of the
water supply may be averted.
Highest Steam Shovel Record.
The Division Engineer at Gatun reports
that the maximum day's output for the
period October 12th to 18th, inclusive, for
steam shovels in the lock site at Gatun was
on the 18th, on which date five steam shovels
excavated 5,472 cubic yards, an average of
1,09 4 cubic yards per shovel.
Shovel No. 107 led with 1,600 cubicyards;
Shovel No. 102 was second with 1.152.
Shovel No. 117 was third,' ihl Il.'.'. Sli'. vI
No. 120 was fourth with 1,024; and Shovel
No. 104 which was hampered by a narrow
place in which to work, was filth with 64-0.
The highest daily record hitherto attained
was that of Shovel No. 114 at Gatun, 858
cubic yards, on October 2. Consequently
the four shovels first named each broke the
record.
Fire Possibilities in Palm Trees.
THE CANAL RECORD:
An article in No. 7 of THE CANAL RECORD,
entitled Fire Possibilities in Palm Trees,"
points to the destruction of a palm at
Tabernilla through lightning, which set the
oil in the tree on fire and created a strong
enough blnze to endanger a nearby build-
ing. The article also states that other
palms in the vicinity of buildings should be
cut down as a matter of precaution, but to
save any of these from being destroyed
unnecessarily, I wish to state that there
are only two tall growing species of palms
in the Zone settlements which contain a
notable amount of oil, viz.: the "Attalea
cohune," to which the article refers, and
the Cocoanut palm. The presence of these
around '",ili .'r should, however, be con-
sidered more beneficial than harmful as they
will invariably protect houses from being
struck through -i, r.cin.: the lightning
upon themselves. II it'p 1'; SCHULTZ,

ZONE PUBLIC SCHOOLS

Outline of the Work for the Year.
The Canal Zone free public schools reopened
after the summer vacation on October 1.
Schools for white children are established
at La PBoca, Ancon, Pedro Miguel, Paraiso,
Culebra, Empire,' I.as Cascadas, Bas
Obispo, Giorgona, Gatu anid Cristobal.
A school will also le opened within at fe
weeks on the beach near thle hospital at
Colon, for the benefit of the children of em-
ployes of the Panama Rail rod (Company
quartered in that vicinity.
Schools for colored children have been
opened at La Boca, Las Sabanas, PIaraiso,
Culebra, '.iiilir, Cruces, Matachin. Cor-
gona, T.il I iiill I. In.I., Gatun Cristobal
and Playa de Flor. It is intended to open
others at Pedro M -itna Las Cascadlas
San Pablo, Bas Obispo, I' ..I.- and Ma-
jagual.
In the schools for white children 2199
pupils have been enrolled, while 638 pupils
have been enrolled in the schools for colored
children.
The teachers for the white schools have
been very carefully selected from the numer-
ous applicants for appointment; prefer-
ence being given to those with normal
school training and previous experience in
the United States. All but four of the
eighteen teachers employed for the white
schools have had such experience. The
colored schools will be incharge of the most
competent native and West Indian teachers
that it is possible to attract to the service.
The delay in opening some of the colored
schools has been due to the difficulty expe-
riencedin securing properly qualified colored
teachers.
The schools are divided into eight grades
in conformity with the similar . 'iii.,' ii.l
of elementary schools in the United States,
The curriculum includes reading, writing,
spelling, granmmar, geography, elementary
physiology and free-landdrawing. Inaddi-
tion to the instruction in these -nuic't FnPw-
lish-speaking children are t .iii. i -l....Ii
and Spanish-speaking children are taught
English. For American children who are too
far advanced for the elementary grades,
high school classes will be organized at
Culebra and Cristobal, in which instruction
will be given in algebra, geometry, Latin,
Spanish, botany, physical geography, gen-
eral history, rhetoric and biology.
Children of parents who are not employed
by the Isthmian Canal Commission or the
Panama Railroad Company andu are not
residents of the Canal Zone, will be admit-
ted to the elementary grades wherever local
conditions will I. I mI, upon payment of a
tuition fee of $2 (gold) a month, and to the
high school grades upon payment of $4I1
(gold) a month.
All necessary material, including books,
pencils. pens and paper, are furnished to
the children free of charge. No expense can
be incurred by children of the Canal Zone
attending the schools, except a nominal
charge for the mutilation or loss of books
or other property resulting from the pupil's
carelessness or niCL hli_-. 1'
It is the-aim of the Division of Schools to
provide for the children of American parents
instruction similar to that which they
would receive in the public schools of the
I'mrad States, in order that they may not

SOCIAL LIFE OF THE ZONE.

Continued Successful Working of the \\o-
men's Clubs in the Canal Zone.
Miss Helen Varick BoswIll having c. iI,
pleted her work of organizing clubs among
the American women in the Canal Zone,
sailed on October 17 for New York on the
Colon.
The regular meeting of the A ncon Wo-
man's Club was held October 16 at the
Hotel Tivoli. The president, Mrs. W. C.
Gorgas, was in the chair. At the request
of the president Miss Boswell took an active
part in the piI... dAll-'. In the absence of
Mrs. T. C. Lyster, Mrs. Charles II. Jewett
acted as secretary. The meeting wascalled
to order, the minutes of the previous meet-
ing were read and accepted, and the con-
stitution was adopted. This being the first
regular meeting of the club an informal
discussion of the work to be taken up by
the various departments was held.
A recommendation to the home depart-
ment to develop horticulture was received
with enthusiasm and lively discussion en-
sued. It was pointed out that there was
no reason why the gardens of homes should
not be made beautiful and attractive, that
with a little care and attention almost
any kind of plant and shrub could be made
to grow here, and where the soil is arid all
facilities would be given to the procuring
of loam or richer earth. It was indicated
that seeds would be forwarded from the
Agricultural Department at W\Vashington
upon application. Those who have no
gardens were urged to take up window
gardening as a great many women have
already done.
Touching upon the educational question
a resolution was adopted which embodied
appreciation of the efforts of the Commis-
sion and Governor Blackburn, but expressed
the hope that a strong, progressive school
organization would soon be effected.
Several points were brought up with ref-
erence to the work of the philanthropical
department, the president naming Miss
Russell chairman of the committee. It was
decided to elect a second vice president to
ensure the presence of a presiding officer ini
case of absence at some time of the presi-
dent, Mrs. Gorgas, and the vice president,
Mrs.Maguire. Mrs. Boxer, of Corozal, was
elected to fill the office.
A suggestion that has come from the out-
side is one that has aroused considerable
interest. It is thought that I .11. .. driving,
orlaunchparties could be formed for expedi-
tions to the historic places on the Isthmus
and the surrounding islands, a special study
of the point to be visited to be made before
the excursion, and papers oil the subject to
be read at previous meetings.
The club will meet on the first and
third Wednesdays of each month at 2
o'clock. At the next meeting, November 6,
Madame LeI'rince will give a talk on art.
The Cristobal Woman's C(lub had a large
meeting on October 16, Mrs. Mabel Loomis
Todd, of Amherst, Mass., being tihe guest
of honor. The rooms were tastefully deco-
rated for the occasion; a musical program
was given. The president, Mrs. Lorin C.
Collin,. introduced Mrs. Todd, wlho gave
an informal talk on "Astronomical Expedi-
tions," Professor Todd having had charge
of nine or ten such expeditions, in most of

American Social Club.
T'ii CANAI. R coRD:
On Saturday evening, October 12, a very
delightful social function took place at Las
Cascadas when t he members of the American
Social Club entertained the members of the
community. It was the first social event
that had taken place at Las Cascadas and
the ladies of the town undertook to prove
that in spite of the fact that the inhabitants
were so far from home, a social occasion was
possible which had in it all the character-
isties of a similar time at home. There
were alout a hundred i couple present and
a number of couples danced to the music of
the Marine band whilst others enjoyed the
games of various kinds that were provided.
A bountiful supply of refreshments was pro-
vided by the ladies and much appreciated
by the company. The Social Club feels
that the thanks of the wholeconinuinityare
due to the ladies for the fine entertainment
provided and the carrying out of the pro-
gram in such a manner as to create a desire
on the part of all present that such social
gatherings should be held often. J. A. Cres-
by aided the ladies in their plans and proved
himself a fine host.

niii' rgencv, under steam for 16 hours con-
tirnu.uii-y. and during that period removed
2,.,in l cirilic yards Fi'.L shovels at thle t.tiin lock site, dur-
intg the v'*ek fndi--, October; 21, moved


30,112 cubic yards, an average of 1,004
cubic yards per shovel per day.
Shovels in the one-hundred class are 70-
ton shovels with buckets of a capacity of
2V2 cubic yards. Shovels in the two-hun-
dred class are 95-ton shovels with dip-
pers of a capacity of 5 cubic yards. The
shovels are under steam for eight hours per
day, but are not actually worked during
this entire period, time being lost by the
necessity of moving the shovel forward,
blasting stone too big for the shovel to
handle, keeping the shovels supplied with
cars, etc.
A Rebuilt Hopper Barge.
About five months ago steam clapet orhop-
per barge No. 7 was hauled on theshipways
at La Boca to be rebuilt. This barge
wvas built originally at Renfrew, Scotland, in
1885, and upon examination, when on the
ways, the hull was found to be in a remark-
ably good state of preservation, so that
most of the rebuilding was confined to the
interior of her hull and to the deck houses.
A new double furnace Scotch boiler was
installed, and the twin screw engines
were thoroughly overhauled. These en-
gines, although twenty-two years old, areas
efficientand aseconomical as any compound
engine now made, and being of very heavy
material, are better than the majority of
modern engines for the hard service required.
An interesting feature is that not one piece
of new pipe has been fitted. All the steam
pipes are of copper, and the bilge pipes
are of lead. They are still in fine condi-
tion, and have been refitted to the new
boiler and pumps. The original boiler
mountings, which were of brass, were also
fitted to new boiler. On her trial trip in
Panama bay on October 4, she developed a
speed of 10 knots an hour on a coal con-
sumption of 21/2 pounds per indicated
horsepower, and was immediately put in
commission with ladder dredge No. 14.
The total cost of material and labor in
: .l.il'lii' this barge amounted to $15,000.

Labor Forces.
The skilled force of the Isthmian Canal
Commission at the end of the fiscal year 1906
was ..ipir ,'.in..l.:1' 2,500 men, and at the
end -' r i,.- r-.: ear 1907 it was actually
4,404. In order to provide for this increase
of 1904 men, and to supply the vacancies
caused by the usual separations, due to
sickness, resignations, etc., 3..-3t men were
brought from the United States during the
year. At the end of the fiscal year 1906
there were on the Canal work 500 Euro-
peans and 13,625 West Indians; at the
end of the fiscal year 1907 there were 4,317
Europeans and 14,606 West Indians. To
maintain this force of laborers and also to
provide the Panama railroad a force of
about 5,000 men, 6,899 Europeans and
10,947 West Indians were brought to the

Isthmus during the year, an average of
1.500 men per mouth. The total force of
skilled and unskilled laborers of the IstLhian
Canal Commlission and the Panama railroad
on June ?0, 1906, was 19,600 and on
June 30, I '.* 7. it was 29,446. or an increase
of 10,000 men. iPuri.i- the fiscal year
20,884 men .were liriinult t.. ilie Isthmus
from the United St it-. l:ir.li.-. and the
West Indlies. At the close of the fiscal year
1906, 1,129 houses were available for quar-
tering all kinds of employes, and supplying
the limilliln. for olces, hotels, messes,
kitchens and storerooms. On June 30,
1907, there were 2,20S buildings in use for
the same purposes.
At the close of the fiscal year there were
15 hotels in operation for white Americans,
,it.plyinii meals at 30 cents each, and 18
nie hi:ill- for Europeans, supplying board
at 40 cents a day, and 23 kitchens for the
West Indian laborers, supplying board at
30 cents a day.
The number of meals served during the
month of June was as follows: hotels,
197,419; nirs .'. 2 i. 155,1. itchen-. .';,7t-.,
or nearly a million meals for the month.

Long Trip of the "Culebra."
The sea-going suction dredge C.'Li.,i
built by the Maryland Steel Company at
Sparrows Point, Md., for the Isthmian
Canal Commmission, sailed from that port
on October 9. She reported her arrival at
Barbados on October 18, where a stop was
made for coal. Her next stop will be at
Pernambuco, Brazil, thence to Montevideo,
't ii2'i.', Punta Arenas, .\r- niin:,. on the
Straits of M:'I.Ill.I, and Callao, Peru, at
all of which points coal will he obtained
and her arrival reported by cable. Her trip
of about 12,000 miles will end at La Boca,
where she is expected to arrive about Jan-
uary 1. The Culebra is a sister ship to
the dredge Ancon, now doing such good
work in the Canal channel in Colon harbor,
and their cost was about $375,000 each.
The Culebra will be used in drhi.l.,iic the
channel for the Canal at La Boca.
Information for Steamship Passengers.
In order to facilitate the prompt -. .iii

which are made of the Treasurer of the
Canal Zone (who is also Disbursing Officer
of the Canal Commission), at Empire. Such
permits are, in accordance with the laws of
the Canal Zone, issued by that f.ecii. the
license fee in each case being $5 American
currency, all such perinit [hinig on the
15th day ofJune next I fl'tl.lvlg the date on
which they are issued.
Before permits are granted, inr..I.iihg as
they do the pri'.ilL,.. of carrying loaded
firearms, although not in concealment, the
matter in each case is referred to the Chief
of Police of the Zone, f.r it .'.'?l.i6 ti.,il as
to the character and -taiwhg f thie appli-
cant, with view to ascertaining whether or
not he is a proper person to be entrusted
with the privilege.
Hunting permits issued by the Canal
Zone Treasurer cover, of course, Zone terri-
tory only, and do not apply to territory of
the Republic of Panama.

Removal of Insane Patients.
The insane patients of the Zone were
transferred on Thursday and Frid.it, last
from Miraflores hospital to the new insane
wards which have recently been completed
at Ancon hospital. This task, which gave
promise of being a troublesome one, because
of there being a considerable number of vio-
lent patients, was carried out without dis-
turbance. Dr. Grosbeck Walsh, the super-
intendent of the asylum, was in charge, and
in addition to the staff of attendants, the
Police Department, represented by seven
officers, assisted in the transfer.
Special trains with two coaches each,
were run for this purpose over the Pariama
railroad, one on Thursday, the 24th in-
stant, when the women patients were
removed, and another the following day,
which carried the male patients. All were
taken from the trains to wagons and carried
to the hospital, the United States mail
wagon with its enclosed sides being pressed
into service for the violent male patients.
There were 121 patients transferred, of
whom 45 were women (all but one insane),
and 76 men, all insane.

New Transient Rates at Hotel Tivoli.

sient rates will be in force at the Hotel Tivoli:

SOCIAL LIFE OF THE ZONE.

Preparations for Hallowe'en Parties made
by the Women's Clubs.
The work of the Zone women's clubs is
going on with unabated interest and enthu-
siasm. Although the organizations are
still in the formative period, it is the general
impression that there is much work to be
done as well as an ni' i'i.nlii- social life to
be led. LI'. L1 Ithr.iig.li their means. Hitherto
the intere-i- .I' [the women have been so
widely divergent that it requires a little
time to become accustomed to the new
idea,to find the best direction forclubeffort,
and to get things into smooth running
order. But the dIliCilit is disappearing
r.ipilvl and the clubs are beginning to make
their work felt in every community where
they have been organized.
The chairmen of the various departments
of the Ancon club have been named and are
c,.ni icriii:. their committees. Miss Russell,
chairman of the ]il,1.,ihb .[.r department,
feels that she has a large field for work
among the Jamaican negro women, and
hopes to organize a vi-itii'" committee for
the purpose. Another field of activity is
.suL'cee.td in the preventing of cruelty to
animals. It has not yet been learned what
steps may be taken in this work, but it is
felt that every woman and club member
should hold herself responsible for the treat-'
ment of the dumb brutes in her own com-
munity.
A meeting has been called of the officers
and chairmen of departments on October
30 when further plans will be discussed and
action taken on several important points.
It is desired that a permanent club room
should be i r;,i i el Cf .r in which classes and
Inettint g-Culd 1, 1,..1.1 This will be taken
up at the business meeting. Some inquiries
have been made with regard to the Spanish
classes. Particular interest is felt in this
study department and it is ti,. iif,blit that it
will form one of the leading features of the
club. The educational department will ar-
range for some interesting papers to be
read before the club within a short time.
The Empire club is giving an allowance of
two weeks from October 15 for the admis-
sion of charter members as many of the
women of the community had not had suf-
ficent notice regarding the organization.
The meeting on October 24 was well at-
tended, and much enthusiasm manifested.
The membership is increasing in a most
gratifying manner. The club will give a
Hallowe'en party in the entertainment
hall of the Commission cl6b house.
A motion prevailed that the president
should call two business meetings Iji'eo.- in..
the next regular meeting for the purpose of
perfecting the organization. Mrs. J. F. Mc-
Tyier was appointed chairman of the music
department. Plans are being discussed con-
cerning the organization of Spanish classes
and other educational features.
The Gatun club held its regular meeting
on October 16, the president, Mrs. Chester
Harding being in the chair. A general out-
line of work was discussed which promises
to be very intcrLstinii._. It was decided that
the club should give a Hallowe'en party the
nature of which has to be determined at a
later meitlt iig Mrs. J. L. Elliott was elected
chlntli.iin it [iL: entertainment coiniitteeto
be assisted by. Mr% I.1-1,, ,andI Mr.- Carty.

The club has decided to hold its business
'iiL' ring's every two weeks on Thursdays.
The Pedro Miguel club will give a "Ghost
party" on Ilallowe'L. night There is a
:i.t'.l felt need of -.-.l l ,li\er-.ii in this
community and the club is making every
effort to meet the situation. %Mttiig.- are
regularly held and plans for work are being
constantly discussed.
The Paraiso club will hold an informal re-
ception on Hlallowe'en night in the Commis-
sion hotel. Light refreshments will be served.
The club meeting on the 31st will be omit-
.ted, the ladies coming together instead for
the purpose of dc.or.itii.; the room for the
evening. Business meetings are held on the
first and third Thursdays, social meetings
on the second and fourth Tliiiih.l:i.s of the
month.
Owing to the frequent change of residence
by families in the Zone, it was decided at
the meeting of the delegates that any wo-
man who is a member of one club can,
upon her removal, be admitted to the club
in the station where she may be placed
without further formalities than presenta-
tion ofa letter from the president of the club
of which she was last a member.
In response to requests for copies of the
photographs of the delegates and club mem-
bers taken at the Hotel Tivoli on October
1, it has been ascertained that these may be
obtained through orders sent to the chief
draftsman in the office of the Chief Engineer
at Culebra, at 20 cents (gIl di each. It is
desirable that the president of each club
should ascertain the number of copies
required and club orders should be sent in,
as these will receive more prompt attention
than can be given to private or single
orders. The completed photographs em-
braced in any order are forwarded to Mr.
Hood Hudson in the office of the Chief Engi-
neer at Culebra who delivers the same upon
receipt of the price.
The ladies of the Cristobal Woman's Club
are entering enthusiastically upon their
work. A meeting was held on October 26
with an attendance of about fifty ladies.
The feature of the afternoon was an address
by Miss Li, 11ly C. Thompson, head nurse of
the Colon hospital, on the subject of"Home
No,.h,;." Miss Thompson gave practical
illustrations of correct methods for the
treatment of injuries and sudden i'n.li.pi..
sitions, one of the women present kinily
I .ff i ;c ir assistanceas "patient" for emer-
gency treatment.
At the close of the address a general dis-
cussion followed and the speaker answered
a number of questions called forth by the
interest aroused by her remarks. Tea was
then served, after which the meeting was
adjourned. The club will hold a business
meeting on October 30.

THE C..\NAL RECORD


SOCIAL LIFE OF THE ZONE.

Old-Fashioned Entertainments and Hal-
lowe'en Parties Mark Close of the Month.
The women's clubs have been prominent
in the entertainments of the week, nearly
all of them having been given under their
auspices.
The Empire club is one of the largest in
the chain. Mrs. I). W. Bolich assisted by
-Mrs. Beck and Mrs. Kennedy had charge of
the entertainment given at the Commission
club house on lallowe'en. The barn party
idea was effectively carried out in the decor-
ations of apples, corn, d..... iiit -. Chinese
lanterns and palms; a fortune teller, the
Blarney Stone and a Dunces Stool were
amusing features. The evening ended with
old-fashioned square dances, including the
Vi .ti., Reel, and a confetti frolic. Each
member had the privilege of inviting two
guests and the attendance was large.
The club has appointed several new com-
mittees; Mrs. Bolich is chairman of tilhe
social department which provides entertain-
ments. A part of the work of this depart-
inent is the organization of a dance for the
bachelors one evening in the month. Mrs.
Bolich has the privilege of choosing her as-
sistants for each occasion. A chorus has
been organized under the direction of Mrs.
Adolf Faure. A circle for the the discussion
of modern literature under Mrs. Bolich has
been arranged. Mrs. C. K. Harris has been
appointed chairman of the current events
committee. A short time will be devoted
each month to this discussion, the chairman
appointingtwo ladies to assist. Short sug-
gestive papers will be read, followed by
general discussion. At the meeting No-
vember 7, Miss Heller will read a paper on
Satsuma work. There will be music.
At the Hallovwe'en party of the GorgoIna
club, "The Deestrick Skule" was acted to
the great enjoyment of those present. This
was followed by a "Spelling Bee." The
Gorgona male quartette gave several selec-
tions. The rooms were decorated with
apples and doughnuts, the Jack o' Lantern
grinned with gir ii,1 i,,- If. F rli,.l-- and the
home-made refreshments of pie, coffee and
cake were ,r'. appreciated.
The first of a course of lectures on Soci-
ology was Ji ..,, on October 24 by Mr.
Ralph R. \\..l The subject under con-
sideration deals especially with the develop-
ment of community life. The opening
lecture took up early life in America and the
development of the farming communities.
The course will be brought down to modern
sociological conditions.
The. Spanish class has been organized
with twelve members. The newly appoint-
ed committees have undertaken the fol-
lowing duties: The visiting committee
calls on all newcomers and urges them to
participate in the social life of the club and
community; the sick committee has the
work of visiting the sick in their homes and
looks after those who may be in trouble.
Mrs. Ralph R. Wolf has been appointed
secretary pro tempore during the absence
of the regular secretary, Miss Ethel Hayes,
in America.
At the meeting of the Gorgona Club on
October 31, a letter was read from Colonel
Gorgas. in which he granted the request
made by the club to supply canvas canopies
to be used over stretchers in carrying pa-


tients from the hospital to the train as a
protection from sun and rain.
The business meeting of the Cristobal
Woman's Club held on Wednesday, Octo-
ber 30 was characterized by the same spirit
of enthusiasm and hearty co-operation on
the part of the members that has made this
club so marked a success since its .r...111
ization. Reports were read by the d.iil. .. t
department heads, Home, Philanthropy,
Art and Literature, showing the progress
made in the work of each. The president
announced the appointment of Mrs. Albert
0. Herman as chairman of the Educational
Department, thus completing the organ-
ization of departments. The I.11.. ii mo-
tions were voted upon favorably: that the
hour of meeting be made 3.30 instead of 3
o'clock, in order to accommodate the nurses
from Colon hospital who wish to attend,
and that the ladies of Camp Elliott be
granted the pr. ri. of the club. The fol-
lowing resolution, presented by Mrs. Mears
was adopted and a copy ordered sent to
each club along the line:
Be it, Resolved, That every club woman in
the Canal Zone constitute herself a committee
of one to foster favorable instead of adverse
criticism of the conditions of the Zone and of
the Isthmus of Panama.
The next meeting of the club will be held
in the club rooms \\,:n I r, November
6, at 3.30. The subject, in charge of the

The Pedro Miguel Club gave a Hallowe'en
party on October 31, the entertainmentertainment
taking the form of a sheet and pillow-case
dance. Much enjoyment was derived from
the old fashioned entertainment, as well
as the bountiful supply of pumpkin pies,
doughnuts, cakes and other provisions
appropriate to the occasion. There was a
good attendance.
The last in the chain of women's club in
the Zone is the one organized October 17 at
Las Cascadas. The c-ii,, tiiit'. is not large
and the position being somewhat isolated,
the need of a social club for the benefit of
the many young married women who are
located there was Ir,.i tl1 felt. There is a
well organized men's social club and tillis
organization extends the hospitality of its
club room in the Commission hotel to the
women at any time for their meetings. The
room is large and the tables are supplied
with a good assortment of current maga-
zines and newspapers. The woman's club is
organized under the title of the Nonpariel
with the following officers: Mrs. Randall,
president; Mrs. G. S. Lingo, vice president;
Mrs. Williamson, treasurer, and Mrs. W. II.
Boregard, secretary. The club is purely for
social purposes. The second business meet-
ing was held on October 31 when it was
voted that the meeting should be held
every Thursday at the club room, the first
Thursday in the month to be a business
meeting when the appointment of the en-
tertainment committee to actor the month

VIEWS OF ISTHMIAN VISITORS.

Comments of Minlister Hicks.
The 11on. lohn Ilicks, United States Min-
ister to I hl,, I- I thr..i.-l Panama a
few weeks agS On his v 't I. I to his post
after a visit to) his homne in Wisconsin. sIe
pent several days 0on the Isthmus, and
wrote a longt account of his observations to
the Oshkosh '... t .'* ,. 1 ,. a newspaper of
which he is the editor and proprietor.
From this ancount the following extracts are
taken:
I had1 crossed the Isthmus five times before
and the last was in August. I1905, but I was
astonished at the changes that had been imade.
Ip to two years ago thile ears were small, dimly
lighted, dirty and out of date, running on a sin-
gle track, with very few passengers, through a
sparsely settled region with only half a dozen
dilapidated villages where we could see by the
light of a kerosene lamp into tlie interior of tile
stores wherenegro salesmen were sellingtobaeeo
or calico to a few straggling colored men andl
women.
Now the trains are made up of excellent
American cars with cane seats and every car
seemed to be filled. Two tracks have been laid
nearly the whole distance across. Darkness
camIe before we were half wav over and all the
wvay out of Colon and along the Chagres river
we saw evidences of the Amlerican invasion.
Long trains of patent dumlp cars filled with
Cart, huge shops where Imachinery is put
together, great buildings used for boarding
houses, numbers of locomotives hauling trains
loaded with supplies, and the sound of the ham-
rmer, the forge and the machine shop made a
scene in activity quite in contrast with the trop-
ical silence of the Spanish rule.
The most interesting sight was the very large
buildings we passed, brilliantly, 1. .. I I, elec-
tric light, andiil reminding one .' i i'., in-, man-
ufaeturing district in the United States. One
was a boarding house, another a magnificent
club for the vorkmen, a club provided with all
the newspapers and magazines, billiard tables
and gymnastic appliances and other conveniences,
and the nen have the free use of the building and
contents at the price of $1 per month. Secre-
taries provided by the Y.I.C.A. but paid by the
Government are in charge, and there are already y
four of these clubs in successful operation. The,
are part of the wise and salutary arrangements
instituted by the Canal Commission for tile health
and comfort of the men.
It seemed in the darkness as if w rewere passing
through a well-settled country, judging by the
many large and well lighted buildings we passed,
and yet this whole region was a wilderness
when I passed over it two.years ago. Finally,
the long train stoppedat the station in Panama
and we took carriages for the Hotel Tivoli that
could be seen on a neighboring hill, shining
from turret to foundation stone in a blaze of
light. It is built somewhat like a summer resort
hotel in thle United States, the mains walls of
red bricks and the rest of pine, the doors of oak
and the inside finish of Oregon pine, it looked as
if it had at least 500roomns, for it is three stories
high and consists of three immense wings, but I
am told that the number is much smaller, be-
cause the Commission built it with regard to
the best sanitary conditions, and no expense was
spared to make it comfortable and healthful.
Onevery side of every story all around the build-
ing is a fine veranda from twelve to fifteen feet
wide. Every room in the house is a large one
with great high ceilings, and it opens to the
outer air.
There are no elevators, about the only real
convenience that is lacking. But everywhere, inl
all the wings and on every floor there are 1nu-
leroulls hath rooms and toilet rooms with
l osaic l marble floors and every convenience, and
every room is supplied with the finest sanitary
washbowis and an abundance of water, aud
greatest of all, every door lanld every one of
the thousands of windows are furnished willth
strong iron screens, providing for a con-
stant supply of pure air without the slightest
danger from mosquitoes or noxious insects.
Nowhere else in South or Central America ha ve
I seen a screen. I have been particular to say so
much about this hotel because it is the first and
only one of its kind in tropical America and it is
destined to work a complete revolution inI the
hotels of Central and Soulth America.
For, in the old days. Panata was a plague
spot to be shunned by the travelers. The first

Miss Boswell's Observations.
Ij l the New York Tribune of Otcl-t., '2
there is published a long interview. ith
Miss Boswell, who had arrived fr',, tl...
Isthmus on the previous day. Fr ii, hl.-
interview thefollowingextracts are t:.l c,
When I crossed the Isthmus for tile li,- r 'l.
there were crowds of women at every -1 i 3.1 Ir
tlirowing flowers and letters. I could ':- i.. I'
thle tears back. and I forgot all the hard .. 1 ?
l1ad done. I had spent four weeks goint r I I
fro upon the Isthmus, riding in engine l.e- .....i
walking off thirteen pomuls. But I au ..,.I.1
glally have walked off thirty-six pounds "..r ,I,.:
joy of seeing the women get this new intL...i ..i
their lives. I told them if they liked mo .,. ill
not to let thile movement die, and I kno. ii,...
won't. I know when a tiling has vitality,
Yon see, it has been very lonotonous i.. I
women on the Isthmus. The mlen hai ie.' ,s'
work, but tie %vwom en had only their ihont,-i I
ing, and th le l .... .. l..j, i isn't the th, er i.
ing tling it .,,- i, I Ii. I r i, more like ]I....
keeping in a eaClp. Besides, a good man .l I I, .
women have sent their chi1lreln home ,.i 1. Ir
them lehlind because of tile lack of ednca0un,.d
facilities on the Isthmus, which relieves them of
another care and robs them of an absorbing
interest. They had no social life, either.
It was inevitable that such conditions should
cause discontent. Living conditions were satis-
factory, but there was no variety or interest in
life. Now, the Canal Commission wants the
women to lie happy, because their discontent
extends to their husbands, and other men hesi-
tate to bring their families to the Isthmus. So
tlhe Commission very wisely adopted the sugges-
tion of tile Civie Federation to organize women's
clubs, and I was sent from the federation for that
purpose.
The result seems to nh e simply wonderful.
First and fotremost, the clubs have broken the
ice which kept these lonely wom-en apart from
one another.
But in addition to this there is much practical
work that the clubs propose to do. They are all
organized with four 1. .rp ., r.I 1.-,,. ,i i, i-,

1nder the head of 1ome many things aire being

imeailns of gardens and vines. Some of the houses
have no ground in front, but they allhave broad
piazzas, or "'galleries," as they are called, and
thliese can Ie made beautiful with vines and
plants. For this purpose tlhe ri' ., in ...., ir..i.-

Rebuilt Coal Barge.
An old French coal barge with a wrought
iron hull of 50 tons I '' ,,. which had
been abandoned in onu. bt. i. small tribu-
taries of the Rio Grande near Pedro Miguel,
has recently been rebuilt into a barge with
a capacity of 100 tons and was launched
from the shipways at La Boca on the after-
noon of November 6.
As the stream at the point the barge
was found was not of sufficient depth to
permit of the barge being taken to La Boca
by water, it was decided to transport it
there by thd railroad. In order to do this
and to facilitate I ndline, the hall 'was cut
into t'v. r s-:cti-ni. Q" irl to th, size oi the


first section taken, it was necessary to have
flat cars placed side by side on the double
track of the main line of the railroad, and
in order not to interfere with the movement
of construction trains the transferring was
done outside of t!h. r-c.Il.rI traffic hours.
The transfer was -h .l-fll, made but to
make handling easier and more economical
the second section was also cut into two
parts and these were then brought down
singly by train with much less trouble.
When assembled on the shipways a new
section, 40 feet long, was inserted amidship,
which added about 50 tons to its capacity
and brought the total capacity up to 100
tons. The barge has been completely over-
hauled and put in first class order at cost of
about$3,000, while a new barge of the same
capacity would cost about $7,000. It will
be used in c.,.i,,r.- the fleet of dredges at
work on the Pacific channel of the Canal.
Panama and Colon Improvements.
At the close of the last fiscal year it was
estimated that the cost of improvements in
the cities of Panama and Colon would ap-
proximate $1,750,000.
In Panama 13,000 feet of water pipe have
been laid,consisting mainly of extensions in
outlying districts, practically completing
the water-works system. Connections were
made in 2,093 houses, 1,04,8 meters were
installed and 133 hydrants, 7 water cranes
and 35 public taps were placed. The aver-
age consumption of water per capital was
about 20 gallons per day.
Sewer pipe to the amount of 12,232 feet
had been placed, 2,096 storm sewers had
been' .,it 46 manholes and 62 catch basins
had been constructed, and two large storm
water sewers had been built for special
drainage purposes. All brick paving in the
city was completed on April 3. This work
included 21,725 cubic yards of grading,
9,056 square yards of concrete foundation,
and 29,066 lineal feet of curb. In the brick
paving work 1,922,297 bricks were used,
requiring 16,565 square yards of macadam
foundation. There were laid also 2,7468
square yards of macadam paving and 19,088
square yards of concrete paving.
In Colon the water-works system was
practically completed; 3,956 feet of water
pipe were laid, 75 house ,' mnicCti .i.s were
made, 414 service boxes were installed and
122 meters tested and set. The sewerage
system was completed, and in this work
24,521 feet of sewer pipe were used. On
cross drains 1.'.77 feet of sewer pipe were
laid. Excavation amounting to 16,300
cubic yards was made and 62 manholes
built. A sump was constructed into which
all sewage flows.
The completion of house connections with
this system and the completion of us.lcri
phit 1.i, i. i in active progress. Paving in

feet of header for brick pavement curb.
On the streets of Colon 36,993 lineal feet
of combination curb and gutter were laid,
43,101 square yards of macadam, 15.25-.4
cubic yards of earth fill, 2,218 cubic yards
ofgr.iliiinL. 1.5 51 lineal feet of excavation
for curl trench, and 7.ti;5 lineal feet of con-

%tr. rt I'r.iti Bolivar street to the beach, and
on Ffllhi. Seventh and Ninth streets from
Front street to the beach. In addition,
1,795 lineal feet of vitrified pipe were laid in
macadamized streets.
Steam Hopper Barge No. 9.
Steam clapet or hopper barge No. 9, the
last of the fleet ofclapets that will be rebuilt,
was hauled on the gridiron at La Boca on
September 23 and will be launched Novem-
ber 17.
The hull of this clapet was in good condi-
tion but it was necessary to put in a new
boiler, new steam and bilge pipes, and new
crank shafts for the twin screws. The
crank shafts were brought from the States
and are the first that have been bought
for any of this fleet of eight clapets, all of
which have been overhauled. The original
cylinders and engine are still in excellent
condition, it only being necessary to replace
some of the smaller parts with old French
material found at various points along the
Canal. An entirely new deck and super-
structure will be put on and the entire
,inr,': put in thorough repair.
TIts clapet has a capacity of about 280
cubic yards, and is of the same type as the one
described in THI CANAL REcoRD of October
30, and together with the other seven
already in commission will be used in con-
nection with drel..i.i at La Boca It is
expected that :t .. ill Ih- ready for use about
the middle of December. The total cost for
rebuilding will be about $18,000, while a
a new one would cost about $75,000.

Shovels in the one-hundred class are 70-
ton shovels with buckets of a capacity of
2/2 cubic yards. Shovels in the two-
hundred class are 95-ton shovels with dip-
pers of a capacity of 5 cubic yards. The
shovels are under steam for eight hours per
day, but are not actually worked during-
this entire period, time being lost by the
necessity of moving the shovel forward,
blasting stone too big for the shovel to
handle, keeping the shovels supplied with
cars, etc.
Gatun Shovel Records.
For the week ending November 2, 1907,
there was loaded by shovels 113 and 114,
at the spill, -' site, Gatun, 13,980 cubic
yards, car measurement, or an average of
1,165 cubic yards per shovel per day.
The largest day's loading by both shovels
was October 29, when 2,S32 cubic yards
were removed.
Shovel 114 made the largest output for
any one day in the week, loading 1,428
cubic yards on the 29th.
The maximum daily output of shovels at


Gatun for the past six working days was
made on Frd.-iy, November S, when the
total number of cubic yards, car measure.
ment, was 5,232 f,,r the five shuoels. an
average of 1,04.6 cubie yards per slih'. el.

of the Canal Zone sho\is a ni,ticeahie de-
crease in the number ...I arrcstsi for the

THE CANAL RECORD


SOCIAL LIFE OF THE ZONE.

General Activities of the Women's Clubs.
Each week brings fresh interests in the
Women's clubs in the Zne. New names are
constantly being presented and the scope of
work enlarged, suggestions being eagerly
seized and acted upon in accordance with
the special needs Iof etach individual orga-
nization.
liiini;, the past week a nuttilmber of talks
have been given in several clubs on thework
of other organizations in the chain and it
was observed that each club took up the
points especially adapted to its own com-
munity and several new measures ;f useful-
ness were adapted.
The interest displayed in the study of
Spanish was universal and in several of the
organizations this promises to be the most
useful and prominent feature of club life.
In all the communities, the club influence is
making itself felt in social life, in the in-
creased spirit of contentment and broad-
ening of the lives of the women. In this re-
spect, the efforts and work necessarily ex-
pended for maintaining the organization are
well repaid. One of the most .iiiiti ',,
features of the movement is the interest
that the men are taking in it. Not only the
unmarried men who greatly appreciate the
increased opportunities for social intercourse
but the married men as '.., II. give every en-
couragement to their wives to take an ac-
tive part in the work.
There it a general feeling of satisfaction
in the action taken by the Cristohbal Wo-
man's Club in the recent resolution quoted
in last week's issue of THE CANAL RECOlnD,
that the women should unite in fostering
favorableinstead of adverse criticism of con-
ditions in the Zone and on the Isthn us of
Panama. Several of the clubs have already
taken action on this and expressed their
intention to support the Cristobal club in
this movement.
A great need is felt for intercourse animong
clubs which could be brought about in the
way of invitations extended from one organ-
ization to another for social occasions.
This would accomplish, not only the object
for which the clubs were organized, i. e., to
unite the women in social and educational
influence, philanthropic work and musical
and literary study, but would afford oppor-
tunity for the exchange of ideas, and the
study of the methods and work of the other
organizations. The general ti,.;,i n, of the
Zone Federation of Women's Clubs, which
takes place quarterly, different towns being
appointed for each meeting, will be beneficial
in this respect, but it is greatly desired that
theexchange of courtesies among the organ-
izations will be arranged as frequently as is
convenient with club work. It is generally
understood that business shall be trans-
acted in closed meetings, and that invita-
tions shall be extended for social occasions.
The social meeting of theGorgona club on
November 5 was well attended. Miss J.
Macklin Beattie gave a short, informal talk
on the American Woman's club and some
special features of American colony life in
Berlin, Germany. A discussion of the work
of the club followed, the president, Mrs.
Frank Morrison, presiding. This club is
desirous of taking up the horticultural
movement, members applying their efforts
to i- ulil' iyini]. public grounds and squares


of their town. The meeting was adjourned
for the informal reception during which ices
were served. The remainder of the after-
noon was devoted to exercise in the gym-
nasium. The women of the club are partic-
ularly fortunate in hllving at Gorgona Mr.
Louis F. La : ... the newly appointed
I'l .* .'I Director and Assistant Secretary
* I i 'i XM. C. A. at that place, who aids
them in their work ifthey desire it.
The club had a called business n,.e.tiln
November 7, when it was decided ih. i tinl
Christmas celebration in the town should
be one of especial interest. Fuller details of
the arrangements which are practically
complete, will be given later.
There was a large attendance at the meet-
ing of the Ancon club November 6. The
president, Mrs. W. C. Gorgas, presided, and
the business proceeded in regular order.
The minutes of the previous meetings,
read by Mrs. E. F. Quiniby, secretary pro
tempore, were adopted. The reports of the
standing committees showed satisfactory
progress in organizing the work of each
department. Several inquiries have been
made regarding the action taken by the
club in regard to the school question. One
of the points urged is the advisibility of
electing a school board, which should include
among its numbers, mothers, and others
whose opinions pertaining to matters of
educational work would lie of value, which
should visit the schools from time to time
and report to the authorities the results of
their observations and the progress made.
The educational department has suggested
the expediency of opening night classes for
the study of Spanish and the further sug-
gestion that husbands of members should
be admitted to these classes was received
with favor, action upon the measure being
reserved for later decision.
The home department was able to an-
nounce that in connection with the horti-
cultural work, club members desiring slips
for planting would be supplied upon send-
ing their names to thechairmnan, Mrs. H. R.
Trask, Corozal. The music department
has sent for special music suitable for cho-
rus and quartette work and expects to
begin work at once. The literary depart-
ment is arranging for a current events pro-
gram to take place at one of the November
meetings. In connection with this depart-
ment a magazine club will be formed,
The literary event of the afternoon was a
talk on What to Do and IHow to Do It,"
given by Madam Le Prince. The speaker
was founder and former president of the
New York Society of Ceramic Art, a society
which started with a membership of about
one hundred and has since developed into a
national league with headquarters in every
large city in America. Madam Le Prince
gave an interesting survey of the oppor-
tunities for the development of art and art
life on the Isthmus. She is desirous of found-
ing an art colony among the American wo-
men here. At the close of the paper there
was an exhibit of the water color work of
the speaker. Several visitors were present.
Pending other arrangements, the club will
continue to hold its meeting at the Tivoli,
the courtesy of the use of the parlors having
been extended to them for that purpose.
The Paraiso club held its regular mietii.,
November 7, the pi,-id,.lt., Mrs. J. C. Bar-
nett, presiding. There being no specialbusi-


lne's k lfore tlie club, thle meeting was of
