Dredge "No. 82" Passes Through Gatun Lake.
Suction dredge No. 82 left its mooring at
the edge of the lake, near the landing for
small boats at Gatun at 6.20 o'clock, Tuesday
morning, August 26, and was towed by the
steam launch Balboa to a point in the Canal
channel north of the Gamboa dike, where it
will be set at work within the next few davy
removing mud and gravel brought down and
deposited there by the Chagres River. The
dredge has been tied up at Gatun for several
months waiting for the lake to rise to a height
so that it could pass through it and begin the
work of dredging. The 24-mile trip was made
without incident, the dredge arriving at its
destination at 3.20 p. m. It is the first large
vessel that has passed through the lake
Moving Employes' Effects in Panama and Colon.
A ruling has been adopted by the Quarter-
master's Department to the effect that when
an employee moves from Ancon or Crisrobal
to private quarters in the cities of Panama and
Colon, team service may be provided, but
where an employee moves from one house to
another in those cities, the request for team
service will be denied. The employee may,
however, have the service on written agree-
ment to pay the cost.

Water at South End of Miraflores Locks.
The waters of the Rio Grande diversion
were turned into the Canal prism between
Miraflores Locks and the dike across the
Canal, 5,000 feet south of the locks proper,
on the afternoon of August 23, in preparation
for the removal of the dike, which will open
a channel from the locks to the Pacific The
diversion was dammed at a point almost
opposite the dike, at mile post 42.50, byh
means of a light fill of rock and earth, and
the water was turned into the prism through
a shallow trench. The prism is filling rather
slowly, and it is probable that the Rio Grande
supply will be augmented by letting in water

from the sea The tripod drills on the side
of the dike toward the locks continue at work
and it i, proposed to shatter the dike by sub-
merged blasts on September 1. The lower
level of the locks is protected against flooding
by the lower guard gates, which were closed
on August 20, and b; closing the Stoney gate
valves at the loner end- of the cultert in the
side and center walls. .bout 25,000 feet of
railway track were removed from this section
of the completed channel, in anticipation of
its inundation.
Nera Record in Pulling Cable.
The cable gang at Gatun Locks. under Mr.
G. A. Balling, supervisor ol electrical installa-
tion, consisting of Foreman William-. F. \'.
Hallin, P R. Kiger, N. Owen-. N. Gilbert.
0. \. Steeds and silver helpers, retablished a
new local record in cable pulling for an 8-hour
day on Thursday. August 21. by pulling
9,828 feet of 8-conductor, No. 10 lead-cosered
cable, and 12.300 feet of 5-conductor No. 10
lead-covered cable, a total of 22,128 leet.
A total of 9.200 feet o: cable was pulled dur-
ing the first three hours. It rained tle entire
day and on this account, the conditions
under which the work wa' carried on were
unfavorable. The best local record fo. any
one month is held at Gatun Locks, when 113,
002 feet of cable were pulled
New P. R. R. Time Table.
A new passenger train time table will go
into effect on the Panama railroad at 2.30
a. m., on Tuesday, September 2. The new
schedule provides for a through main line
service from Colon to Panama, via the Gold
Hill cut-off, three trains each say daily ex-
cept Sunday, with changes in the arriving

The shovels formerly at work on Cucaracha

eoacrete building in which it is housed will
bedynamited. It is estimated that it would
take 17 days to fill the Canal to the level
of the dike by this method, and the water
that will be admitted in the 5-day period is
mainly intended to act as a cushion ag-in-r
the Gamboa dike, which will be dynamited on
October 10. A batter, of drill, is now en-
gaged in sinking holes in the dike to the
depth of about 30 feet. The blast 1- nut
expected to be pprctacular. a: it will probably%
only loosen the material, and po-sibly cause
a small opening through which water from
the lake will find its nay, gradually increa-
sing in size until a considerable -tream flows
into the Cut.
Gamboa dike wa- built in 1908 to
protect Culebra Cut from inundation from
freshets in the Chagre' River During the
flood of December 1906, th.: river roe- to-
81.6 feet at Gambos but thi- was before the
dike was built, and before the B.i- Obisp-
section of Culebra Cut had been completed.
During the flood of November, 1909, the
water rose to a height of 72 6 feet, and came
so close to the top of the dike. which was- then
at 71 feet above sealevel, that sluice gates
were opened to fill the Cut with water to the
level of the river to a.oid heat, washing ir.
case a break occurred. Since that year, the
safety of the dike has never been menaced by
freshets. When Gatun Lake rose to over 50
feet in the latter part of 1912, the dike was
widened to an average of 50 feet by dumping
clay on the side toward the Cut, and raised
to an elevation of 7S.2 feet above sealevel.
When the water in Gatun Lake reached 59.1
feet on August 23, it was still 19.1 feet below
the highest pan of the dike, although that
section over which trains have been run, is
much lower.
The rise of the lake has backed up the
water in theCamacho Diversion as far as Bas
Obispo. The diversion parallels the Canal for
several hundred yards from the point where it
enters the Chagres River. A small amount
of water has been seeping into the Cut
through rhe barrier between the diversion
and the Canal, and to avoid any possibility
of its giving way, a row of piling, spaced on
2-foot centers, is being driven along the
levee. In addition, several irairnoads of
earth will be dumped on the west side of
the embankment.
A few days ago a hand made dike, designed
to prevent the water, which drains from the
Culebra dump into a lagoon near the Lirio
mill, from passing into the Canal, broke
through, and gave rise to several rumors.
No damage was caused, and the break was
speedily repaired.

Improvements at Hotel Tivoll.
Several desirable changes are to be made at
the Hotel Tivoli. including the extension of
the driveway and entrance, an addition to the
number of bathrooms, an increase in laundry
facilities, and the remodeling of the kitchen.
Thecircle in front of thehotel will be extended
to take in the bandstand, and the driveway
will pass behind this, about wheft the carriage
stand is now. The porte cochere is to be length-
ened to permit four carriages to enter under
Its cover at one time. The entrance stairway
will be widened and given an easier slope
outward. At the foot, the stairway will be
divided to form two approaches to the ve-
randa, which will be joined by a broad plat-
form at the top. Under the new arrange-

meant there will be sufficient space at the en-
trance for two carriages to approach, and
turn away again without interfering \ith each
Eight bathrooms will be added in the two
wings which were opened last year. Fancy
tile floors till be laid in the barber shop,
bithro.,ms, and toilets.
The remodeling ol the kirchen \ill make it
one third larger than at prc.ent. The ranges
will be swung around to the wall that extends
along the shaker which will give more con-
venient space lor them, as xell as the dish
washing stands and bain .arne, a container for
keeping the food hot. There will be three
pantries, instead of two; the bake.-y prod-
ucts will be served Irom one; cold meats,
salads, and lunch dishes from the second:

demurrer of Counsel of the United States to the juris-
diction of the Commission in the matter of Juan Sotillo,
the Commission reached the conclusion that it had
jurisdiction to consider the claims of persons who were
the owners of the houses in Gorgona, for whose value
they now claim, prior to the issue of leases for such
property by the Isthmian Canal Commissiom or are
the heirs of such persons, and to make awards against
the United States in favor of said claimants. The

leases from the Isthmian Canal Commission, or are
the heirs of such persons. In the cases of the persons
hereinafter named, claim was also made for the owner-
ship of the land. The evidence submitted to the Com-

buildings in the town of Gorgona. it is to be understood
that the Commission dismisses, without award, the
claims presented by them for ownership in the lands.

erected under the runway from the platform
to the old station. It is expected that the
new station will be placed in full use about
November 1, 1913.

Preseration of Retired Equipment.
Messrs. W. H. Bates, H. S. Farish, and
C. T. Cushman, have been appointed a com-
mittee to investigate the most suitable pro-
tection against deterioration, through cli-
matic influences, of equipment permanently
retired from service. The committee is also
delegated with the work of preparing a set of
rules and regulations governing the procedure
to be followed upon the permanent retire-
ment from service of any piece of each class of
equipment, and to recommend the most ad-
vantageous place or places at which the ap-
plication of the preservative may be made.
Canal Commisslen Takes over Panama Street
A provisional arrangement has been entered
into between the Panama Government and the
Canal Commission, whereby the latter, as of
September 1. has again taken over the work of
street cleaning, garbage-collecting, and street
sprinklingian.trhcity of Panama. At the out-
set, and up to 1908, this work was performed
gratuitously by the Canal Commission. The

Panama G.oernment then served notice
that it desired to take charge of the service,
and the transfer took place un S.-pti mher 1,
1908. Since that time, the work has been
handled by the Panama Goxernment, the
Canal Commison contributing the -umr uf
$100.U0 annually toward its cost. Under the
new arrancemint, the Canal Commi-.ion v ill
ha\e complete jurisdiction over the work,
and it will continue from year to year, unless
60 days'notice is given by either part,, pre-
vious to thq termination of the contract )ear,
of desire for cancellation. The agreement al-o
stipulates that Panamanian citizens be given
preference in the matter of employment
Mess Hall at Ancon for Gold Employes.
A mes; hall has been authorized at Ancon
for gold employes, and the hotel building
at Pedro Miguel will be used for the purpose
It was the original intention to rcerect the-
Pedro Mliuel hotel as an annex to th, mret,
hall at East Balboa, but this arrangement will
not nun be neccs-ar,', inasmuch as eating ac-
commodations for bachelor emplo,,pe at
Ancon will relieve the congestion at the East
Balboa hotel. The probability that a number
of bachelors will continue to be quartered at
Ancon, even after the completion of the Canal,
was al-o taken into consideration. The new
Ancon mess hall will have table accommoda-
tions for about 100 people at a sitting, and is
to be situated on the road to Bishop'5 Hollow,
near the new quarters recently erected in that
locality The hotel privileges will be extended
to gold employes and their families only, and
nonemployes will not be served even at the
50-cent rate.
Fill of Maraby Area Near Panama.
The low.v swampy area lying between the
Curundf River on the noith, and that part of
the Calidonia district of the city of Panama.
known as San lieuel, on the south, will be
filled in by the Canal Commission. This
section has made an excellent breeding place
for mosquitoes in the rainy season, and con-
stitutes a menace to the health of the people
living in the vicinity besides causing con-
tinual expense in oiling. The owners of the
property, with one exception, have agreed
to the proposal. as it will enhance the Lalue
of their holdings, and be of no expense to
them. The new sanitary rules and regulation-
placed in elect by the Panama Government,
and published in the GCaeta (tlictai of March
27. 1913, provide:

Last Barrier at Pacific End of Canal Destroyed
on Sunday, August 31.
The last remaining barrier at the Pacific
end of the Canal %as dynamited at 9.30
o't ock on Sunday morning. August 31. This
dike, composed of a trestle fill of rock and
earth, prevented the vsater from the sealevel
channel from entering the steamshovel cut
5.000) feet ljng. 500 feet wide, and 46 feet
below mean tide, extending to Miraflores
Lock-. The Rio Grande Diversion was turned
into this pit on August 23, but the depth
of water had only reached about 15 feet by
Sunday. About 37,000 pounds of 45 and 60
per cent da namite were used, the charge being
placed in 511 holes at an average depth of 30
leer. A large crowd of spectators was present,
and pictures of the blast were taken by
numerous kodaks, ind one moving picture
At the time of the explosion the water in
the channel, south of the barrier, wa- nearly
at lou tide. The dynamite tore a gap in the
dike about 100 feet wide, but as the bottom of
the ga.p was still at some height above the
existing tide level, no water pas-ed through.
An 18-lout tide was predicted for Sunday,
, ith its maximum at 3.12 p. m., so that before
high tide water was expected to flow over the
gap in the dike. This expectation was fulfilled
a lhttl earlier than was anticipated, for, at
1 35 p. m., the water in the sealevel channel
uwa nearly,' even with the top of the gap. At
this moment a man with a shovel made a
small trench across the dike through which
small stream of vsater began to flow. This
rapidly increased in size until 40 minutes
later, an opening 30 feet wide had been made,
through which a torrent of water poured in a
30 or 35-foot fall. The ru'h of water ate away
the idles of the opening steadily, carrying
large sections of the dike, including trestle
bents, and other debris, into the pit. The
increasing volume of water filled the pit
rapidly, and at 3 o'clock, one hour and 25
minutes alter the water first began to flow
over, the level in the inside channel was that
ol rhe outride channel, while the gap had becn
widened to 401 feet, or more. Some of the
Sixth Division floating equipment was an-
chured in the sealevel channel just above the,
break of the barrier, and when the suction
of the current was at its greatest, a barge was
cut loose, and was carried through the gap
with sufficient force to part a heavy steel cable
which bad been left strung across it. The
barge then drifted slowly up toward the locks.
The dredge .Marmol has begun excavating
against the south side of the dike, and another
dredge will pass through the gap and be set
at ncrk on the other side within a few days.
it is expected that enough of the barrier will
have been removed by October 1 to permit
large ships to traverse the Pacific end of the
Canal, a distance of 8j miles, up toMiraflore

from the dike to the locks on Tuesday after-
noon, September 2, the first vessel to pass
through this section of the Canal under its
own steam.

able, including rail in condition for reuse,
and bent rail, which can be straightened:
anli unserviceable, which will be "scrapped."
The big tree, formerly standing near the
bank of the Chagrcs River at Gorgona, in the
\icinir of the old ships saaw mill. has been
destroyed by dynamite, in order that it might

not prove an obstruction to future navigation.
An additional pump and motor will be

Colon, and Cristobal has been increased one
cent an hour, making their present pay 12
cents an hour.

To Continue Pumping from Chagres River.
The Division of Municipal Engineering
will continue in service the duplex steam
plunger pump, situated on the bank of the
Chagres River, near Gamboa bridge, in order
to provide against a p.'aiible deficiency in
the water supply on the west side of the
Canal during the next dry season, and also
for steamshovels that may be kept in service
above the 85-foot level on the east andr
west banks of Culebra Cut. This pump dis-
charges into a 10-inch water main, which
crosses the Cut on the Empire suspension
bridge. As this bridge will be taken down
before all work is completed on the east bank
of the Canal, it is proposed to lay the main
across the bottom of the Cut at a suitable
point in the vicinity of the present structure.
In view of the fact that the rise of Gatun
Lake will flood the present site of the pump,
it has been moved to a point higher up on
the bank.

Sale of Scrap Copper Screening and Brass Borings.
Award for the sale of all scrap copper screen-
ing has been made to H. D. MNI cko, itzof New
York City for the period beginning July 1,
1913, and terminating June 30, 1914, at the
price of $10.7S per hundredweight. The con-
tract for the last period was held by the
Nassau Smelting and Refining Works of
New York City, at $12.15 per hundredweight.
The prices at which the scrap screening was
sold by the Canal Commission for the three
years prior to 1912 have been $S.25. $8.17,
and $7.75 per hundredweight, respectively.
Two proposals were received for the pur-
chase of brass b'orines. one from the Chicago
Huuc-nrercking Company, at $9.25 per hun-
dredweight, and the other from M. Rovetta,
at $5.75 per hunlrcdsseiht. Both bids were
rejected, and it has been decided to hold the
borings until the market improves. The
Board of Appraisal has fixed on 10 cents a
pound, as the upset price for the borings.

The special material train operated between
Balboa, Empire, and Gurgina each afternoon
dropped the latter place frum its itinerary
on Saturday. August 16. The train will con-
tinue to operate with Empire as its most
northerly stop.



Vol. VII, No. 2.


Athletic and Aquatic Meet at Corozal.
Nearly 1,000 spectators and contestants
attended the athletic and aquatic meet held
under the auspices of the Corozal Y. M. C. A.,
on Labor Day, September 1.
The selection of Corozal seems to have met
with favor as 149 entries were received.
The new athletic field adjoining the club-
house proved fully adequate for the occasion
and will doubtless be useful for future events
of a similar nature.
The events of the morning were enlivened
by a concert by the band of the United States
Marine Corps.
Interest centered in the aquatic events that
were held in the afternoon on account of the
fact that the contests were held in the fore-
bay of the lower lock at Miraflores, instead of
near the dike as had been originally intended.
A concert was given by the Tenth Infantry
Band at the locks, and later at the clubhouse,
when the spectators were returning.

Centralization of Church Work.
The Woman's Foreign Nlissionary Society
of the Methodist Episcopal Church has issued
invitations to the members of the church so-
cieties throughout the Can.il Zone for a rally
to be held in the church parlors of the Qea wall
church on Saturday, September 6. at 2..;0
o'clock. The object of ihi- meLting is tr- di--
cuss the possibility. of forming a cent ral society
for the carrying on of Chri.tian work among
the women alter the dlsbjndmcnt ,-if .uch
societies as nowexist. It is thought that if
the women concentrate in one strong oreani-
zation, the uork can be done without much
tax on their time. It i, believed that the
women of Corozal, Paraiso, Pedro Miguel,
Culebra, and Empire will be interested in the
project. and it is to residents in those \ illa-'es
that the appeal is especially% made. In adl-
dition to the discussion of the-e plans, there
will be a short program, which will include
one number by pupils of the mis-inn school.
and an address on missions by Mrs. Harry
Compton. Fortheconvenien-e of those ladies
who wish to combine a morning business trip
with the meeting. Mrs. E. I. iKeyser of Ancon
will serve luncheon at her home near the hos-
pital gate at 12 o'clock Tho-e having chil-
dren to be cared for will find special pr.vi-ion
for their entertainment. \\omen who vish
to avail themselves of this hospitality should
send word of acceptance to Mrs. E M. Ke. -
ser, Ancon. The committee in charge of the
arrangements for the meeting is composed of
Mrs. Compton, president of the society. Mrs.
C. H. Ports, secretary, and Mrs. JamesStokoe,

and household economics. The missionary
society will provide suitable playground equip-
ment for the school.

Closing Down In Culebra Cur.
All steamshovel- in the Empire district
of the Culebra Cut section were withdrawn
on Saturday, September 6, and only three
were working on the bottom in the Cul-bra
district on Monday. September 8. These
will stop work by Saturday, September 13.
Seven crews were laid off on Saturday night,
and 17 more will be laid off during the present
week. The removal of the construction tracks
in the Cut was begun on September 2, and
the work is well ahead of the schedule. The
last sightseeing train to go through the Cut
was on Friday, September 5.

Opening Channel from Ocean to Gatun Locks.
Since the removal of the railroad track
across the lower approach to Gatun Locks,
on September 2, two pipeline suction dredges
have been engaged in excavating the barrier
of earth over which railway communication
had been maintained with the west side nf
thelocksand Gatun Dam. Twosteamshovels.
six locomotives, and an assortment of box.
flat. and dump cars, have been left isolated
on the west side for the completion of the dam
and spillway, and the general work of clearing
up. Such traffic as may be necessary with the
west side may be effected by means of barges.
traversing the French canal to the unloading
wharves for sand and rock, and articles
weighing up to six tons maybe carried across
the lower end of the locks by the cableways.
Rock and sand, however, sufficient for the
completion of concrete work, are in storage
near the cement shed, and the quantity of
structural steel and other building materials,
and operating machinery to be handled for
the completion of the locks and spillway is
relatively small. --- -- -
At the time of the removal of the railway.
the barrier was approximately 75 feet wide
at the top, which is about eight feet above
aealev&,-with a slope of about one on two to
the depth of the completed channel on either

side, 41 feet below mean sealevel. It contains
about 180,000 cubic yards of material, which
will probably be removed by October 1. Com-
munication is now open to the lower end of
the locks, through the gap which the railroad
crossed on a removable span. and in the prog-
ress of excavation the gap is being continually

Dredge "No. 82" Set at Work.
Suction dredge S.V. 82, which was towed
through the lake channel from Gatun on Au-
gust 26, began its task of removing the ac-
cumulation of mud and grave! from the bed
of the Canal a few hundred yards north of
Gamboa dik-e, on Tuesday September 2.
The material is forced through the discharge
pipe across an island in the lake, thence over
the old channel of the Chagres River .0 the
west bank, where it is wasted into low places
in the vicinity of Matachin. Recent mei- re-
ments show that about 750,000 cubic yardss
of material aill have to be remv.,ved to restore
the Canal channel to it; original depth.
About 300J,000 cubic yards %were lelt by
the Central Divizion, and the remainder
has been brought down by the Chagre.
River since the steamsho.els finished work
in that section about three years ago.
Dredge No. S2, which was used in making
the hydraulic fill of Gatun Dam, has been
idle since June. 1912. It has been overhauled
for the present work.

First Aid Packages at the Canal Locks.
First aid packages will be placed at all of
the locks to cover ca-es of possible electrical
burns These packages will be small, con-
taining a battle 01 oil, bandages, and prob-
ably an antiseptic wash, and will be distribu-
ted, as follows: Gatun, nine; Pedro liguel,
three; Mlraflores, six. They will be placed in
the translormer rooms, where convenient
cabinets for their protection will be available.

Removal of People from Watersheda.
People living on the watersheds of the
Caimitillo, Cameron, and Dominica Rivers
will be required to tear down or remove their
houses on or before October 1. These streams
will become tributaries of Miraflores Lake
when the lake is formed, flowing into that
arm of the lake on which will be situated
the new water works for the Pacific end of
the Canal.

Transfer of Work on Hydroelectric Plant.
Effective September 6, the construction of
the building, and installation of machine' in
the hydroelectric plant at Gatun was placed
under the supervision of the First Division,
Office of the Chiel Engineer. The construc-
tion of the building will be in charge of NIr
Frank Holmes, resident engineer. Quarter-
master's Department, subject to supervision
by the Assistant Chief Engineer.

Wooden Pontoon Structure To Take the Place of
Bridge 571 at Paralso.
The construction of a wooden pontoon
bridge as a means of crossing the Canal after
it becomes necessary to dismantle bridge
No. 575, at Paraiso, has been approved.
The crossing will he made a little north of
this bridge, and the work of excavating for the
east approach has already been oegun. The
plans are based upon designs obtained from
the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway,
which has used pontoon bridges of this type
for many years. One of the most notable
of its bridges is that over the Mississippi
River at Prairie du Chien, \is., which has
been in service 35 or 40 years In the con-
struction of the Canal pontoon bridge, a
som:wbhat simpler design will be followed,
consisting of a timber sc.w 55 feet wide, 378
feet long, and six feet deep. On top of this
hull, a wooden tretlr-, f'ol'. in; quite closely
the ordinar, ty pe of construction, will be
built to an elevation ol about 113 5 feet,
and on ihi. m ill be placed a railroad track and
a highway for vehicles The spanz will be 14
feet between rcnter-, and at thee points, a
transverse wooden trus,, with ir, n ro.d, will
be placed in the hull to carry the concentrated
loads. Lighter trusses, without rods, all be
placed at 2-foot intern-ls between the hea ier
trusse_. The sheathingon the hull iill be four
inches thick at the bottom and sides and three
inches on top. To minimize the bending and
shearing stresses to which the structure will
be subjected, the design includes two heavy
stiffening trusses, the stringers under the
rails being utilized as top chord-, while the
lower chord- are placed at the bottom of the
hull. In addition, there will be heavy longi-
tudinal keelsons.
The bridge is designed for a train load of
4,000 pounds per running Ifo-t In order to
reduce the expense of theapproachesas much
as possible. it is proposed to use as a connec-
tion between the bridge and the shore some
of the spare lock gate girders. -uppirted on
rockers. These rocking approaches will hate
a downward grade when the water is at a
low level, and an upward grade \then it is
at a high level. The pontoon will turn
about a frxed pivot, and to avoid its pro-
jecting into the fairway of the Canal, a recess
will be excavated in the east bank, -o that
when the bridge is opened, it will lease the
Canal channel unobstructed. About 600,000
feet B. M. of yellow pine, or fir, timber, and
375,000 pounds of steel and iron, will be
The designs for the bridge are being pre-
pared by Mr. Henry Goldmark, designing
engineer in the First Division. Mr. W. G.
Comber, resident engineer of the Sixth Divi-
sion. will have charge of building the pon-
toon, trestle, and trusses, and Mr. A. S.
Zinn, acting division engineer of the Central


Division, will have charge of the excavation
and construction of the approaches and all
land connections of the bridge.
The pontoon is nut intended for a perma-
nent crossing, and till probably be aban-
doned, when the villages on the west bank
of the Canal ceane to exist.
To Pass Dredges Through Bridge Across theCut.
Forces of the Panama railroad began on
August 29, the in-tallation of a removable
span near the center of Bridge 57., across
Culebra Cut. opposite Parai-o. This is in
preparation for the passage of dredging vesels
after October 10, engaged in the completion
and maintenance of the channel. The span
will be built on two 60-foot plate girders, re-
covered from the Barbacoas bridge oser the
Chagres, on the old main line, and will allow
a clearance of 60 feet between the supporting
bents. The molded breadth of the ladder
dredge Corozal, the widest vessell in the dredg-
ing fleet, is 45 feet. \\ hen it is desired to pass
a vessel through the bridge, a barge will be
floated under the span, the latter will be lifted
clear on jacks, and the barge towed aside.
It is estimated that removal and replacement
will consume altogether about two hours
A removable span has been in successful use
in the track over the barrier across the lower
approach to Gatun locks; in this instance, a
40-foot queen-truss span was handled by loco-
motive crane.
This provision will necessitate the removal
of four of the present bents of the trestle,
and the erection of two new benrs to support
the ends of the span. The tops of these will
be lower than the present bents,in order that
the rails and stringers of the span may be
even with the corresponding parts of thead-
jacent trestle. The total weight of the span,
including the floor of the footbridge, will be
approximately 68 tons, making the dead load
on the support at either end 3-1 tons, and the
maximum load, under a locomotive, about
114 tons. It is believed that the presence of
water in the Cut will not affect the stability
of thetrestle,as most of the bents areanchorcd
to rock by means of concrete pedestals.
The bridge is approximately 57 feet high,
with its base at 40 feet above sealevel, so
that with the water in the cut at its maximum
elevation the top will be 10 feet above the
Mailing of hleamship Tickets.
The steamship ticket agent of the Panama
Railroad Company at Colon is compelled to
answer numerous telephone inquiries from
employes, after the arrival of ships, as to
w hen theirsteamship tickets \ ill be forwarded
to them. In a great many of these cases the
employes have failed to give their post-office
address when sending in their transportation
papers, making it impossible to mail out
their tickets. It is necesrar, for employes
to give their post-office addre-s if the) expect
tickets to be mailed to them, when sending in
their transportation papers.

Record of Masons.
On account of difficulty in securing photo-
graphs, and complying with numerous re-
quests, the -closing date for receipt of ap-
plications for the "Record of Masons on the
Panama Canal" has been extended by the
Masonic Club of Empire, to October 15, 1913.
Information concerning this book can be
obtained by writing to W. I. Beam, chairman
of committee, Empire, C. Z.
The regular dance of the Cristobal Danc-
ing Club will be held on Saturday, September

Finished September I. Its Construction was Rap-
Id, Consldering DifBcultles Encountered.
It is believed that the completion of the
construction of the Miraflores spillway dam
on September 1 constitutes a record for speed
in difficult construction work on the Canal.
In view of the fact that the waters of Rio
Grande River (which are a combination of the
Rio Grande, Pedro Miguel, Cocoli, Cameron
and Caimitillo Rivers) pass through the site
and had to be diverted three times to facili-
tate the construction during the progress of
the work: also, prior to March 1 of the present
year the Central Division tracks from the
Culebra Cut passed through the site, the
excavation was greatly handicapped.
The main dam is 432 feet in length and has
a bottom width of 91 to 105 feet, with the
bottom on solid rock at elevation 25 feet
below mean sealevel.
To protect against washing of the banks on
the spillway side, the dam has two wing or
retaining walls, one on the east and one on the
west end, each approximately 250 feet long,
and a core wall 134 feet long joins themain
dam with the lock walls.
Construction work was made difficult and
tedious on account of the 10-foot machinery
tunnel located within the main tunnel, with
an-air space of one foot around the sides and
top throughout the length of the dam and
ending in towers at the ends of the dan.
these towers having winding stairways, partly
interior and partly exterior.
In order to make the gate joints watertight
it was necessary to set the steelwork for
gates and roller-bearing tracks with accuracy,
necessitating care in placing the concrete for
the piers lest the steelwork be deflected.
There are eight Stoney gates47 feet long
and 19 feet deep. The elevation of top of
the ogee or crest of the dam is 38.67 feet,
and the elevation of top of gate piers is 85.17
feet above mean sealevel, or a total height of
concrete from bottom of dam to top of piers
of 110.17 feet.
The total amount of excavation required
was 135,000 cubic yards.
The total amount of concrete laid, not
including the drainage opening, which will not
be closed until the latter part of September, is
73,482 cubic yards.
The last concrete was placed for the piers
on August 27, and the steel footbridges on
top were all in place August 29; the eight
gates set in the openings were ready to be
shoved against the seals on August 30. The
Stoney gates weigh 40 tons each, and were
handled from a trestle along the north face
of the dam by two locomotive cranes, one at
each end of the gate.
The principal part of the concrete for the
dam was mixed by the berm cranes at the
south end, east side of the Nliraflores locks,
and supplied in 2-yard buckets on transfer
cars, hauled by narrow-gage locomotives on
tracks built from the berm cranes and ending
in various spurs to the south toe of the dam,
where the concrete was handled to the forms
by derricks and locomotive cranes.

Additional Awards.
The following additional awards were an-
nounced by the Joint Land Commission at an
open session held on Tuesday, September 2:
Award No. 27-In the maer of the loaim of Juan
Sotllo for a haosei in the toan .i G orguon-On April 8.
1913. Juan Soldlo fled a claim nwth the Joint Commis-
sion for house tax No. 733 m Gorgona. and for the lot
on which the said house Ls built
As respects the claim to the ownership of the lot.
the earliest deed presented bl the claimant is dated
March 19. 1887 (No. 125; m n hich h Pretell Amador
makes conveyance to Rircrdo de la Ossa of house and
lot situated m the townot Gorgona. This deed contains
the following clause.
"In this sale is included the portion of the lot
which has not been built upon. This lot has a
frontage of ten meters. nineti centimeters. and aj
depth of seventeen meters. seventy centimeters
The said lot was acquired by conveyance Irom
Justo Maria de la Espnella. who had acquired title
to said lot by cession from the political authorities
of the aforesaid district m accordance with the
requirements of law."
The claimant in this case. Juan Sotillo, has been un-
able to present to the Commission any evidence of the
conveyance made by the rmuni.:ipaty of Gorgona to
Justo Mmia de la Espiella. Much light. hoe\ser. Is
thrown the situation by a deed executed at the same
period, o wit. Aprd 4, 1S87. by the same grantoiJusto
Maria de la Espriella, ma conve ancee made to another
property in the town of Gorgona to Alfred Lindo. This
deed (No. 83). after reciting the conveyance of the
house recited that the grantor conveSs all his
"lights acquired in the land on which the afore-
said house is constructed, by purchase bh me from
Rafael Peladorio Marquez. the frst day of March
of this year. m lull legal form in accordance with
Article 5 of the Executive Decree No. 4S of March
16. 1886. of this department "
It is evident that the decree of March 16. 1886.can-
not be made the basis for a claim of ownership of lands
in Gorgona. inasmuch as this decree, which provided
for the issuance of renewable permits for the occupancy
of town lots in Gorgona expressly denies ile of budd-
ing lots to the recipients of such permits The laim-
ant in this case has been unable to furnsh the Com-
mission with a copy of the document under which
Jnsto Mana de la Espriella conveyed the property to
Manuel Pretelt Amador. It Is evident, however. from
the deed executed at the same period by the said Justo
Maria de L Fspnella in a conveyance to Alfred Lindo.
that the said Justo Maria de la Epnella confused the
right of occupancy under the decree of March 16, 1886,
with the actual title to the lot.
In view of the fact that the claimant in this case has
not been able to furnish satisfactory evidence of title
to the land. and in view of the circumstance that one
of his predecessors in interest has evidently based his
claim to ownership of the land on an executive decree
which expressly denies such ownership, the Commission
has leached the conclusion that the claim of the said
Juan Sotillo to ownership of the building lot on which
House 733 was erected cmanot be sustained, and should
not be taken into considerauon n making an award
in this case.
With respect to House 733. the evidence before the
Commission shows that Sotillo was the owner of the
house before he accepted any lease from the Isthmian
Canal Commission.
In conformity with the principles formulated in the
opinion of July 25, 1913. on the demurrer of Counsel
for the United States to the iuntsdct;on of the Commis-
sion m the matter of the claim of Juan Sotillo. and in
accordance with the evidence submitted to the Com-
mission. an award is hereby made against the United
States of America in favor of Juan Sotllo for house No.
733 in the town of Gorgona. said award to include all
rights. claims, and interest of the said Sotillo in this
budding, together with any claim for improvements
of whatever nature in the building lot upon which it
is located, in the sum of $530S.
This award shall be paid to Juan Sotillo on or before
the 20th day of September, 1913, and if payment or
tender of payment of this award is not made on or before
that date. it shall thereafter bear interest at the rate of
six per centum. per annum, until paid.

Foundry at Balboa Shops In Full Operation.
The first "blow" of steel from the steel
foundry recently transferred to Balboa shops
from Gorgona was made at Balboa on Sep-
tember 5: the first iron and brass castings
from the new foundry were made on August
15 and 20. respectively. The transferred
oxy-acerylene plant produced its first cyl-
inders of gas on September 6. Most of the
work of the Mechanical Division of the class
formerly performed at Gorgona is being done
at Empire shops, the principal activities at
Balboa shops consisting of foundry and pla-
ning mill operations, and work by the struc-
tural gangs engaged in installing machinery
and motors at the new location.

amount of material excavated in the Central
Division was 926,900 cubic yards, of which
843,700 cubic yards were evcavated by Cen-
tral Di ision forces, and 83.00 cubic yards
were removed by sluicing at Gold Hill, the
latter work being in charge of the Fifth Di-
vision of the Chief Engineer's Office. Of the
amount removed by the Central Division,
155,441 cubic ,ards were classified as earth,
and 658,259 cubic yards as rock.
Of the total, 893.300 cubic yards were pri-

cost of the unloading towers willbe $4,'5.735,
and that of the balance of the machinery
$1 47,392, a total cost for machinery for both
plants of $1,833,127, divided, as follows:
Cristobal, $1,307,941, Balboa, S525.18t..
The bids were opened in Washington on
June 14, 1913, and five tenders were received,
ranging in amounts, for both plants, from
$3,894,750 to $1,300,890. The different pro-
posals were given careful study. A commit-
tee, consisting of Col. H. F. Hodges, Civil
Engineer H. H. Rousseau, M r. H.A.A. Smith,
and Civil Engineer F. H. Cooke, appointed by
the Chairman to review the bids, recommend-
ed on August 11 acceptance of the proposal
of Augustus Smith as the lowest satisfactory
offer, with the understanding that he is to
submit, with the exception of the loading
towers, satisfactory proposal to obtain in-
creased storage of coal by widening his re-
claiming bridges 50 feet, and by increasing
their clearance five feet, this enlargement to
apply to all items of the Cristobal coaling
plant. The committee further recommended
that award be made to the Hunt Construction
Company for the six unloading towers, with
the understanding that the contractor will
adapt the towers bid on to the remainder
of the Augustus Smith designs. Under the
award, Mr. Smith agrees to begin delivery of
the machinery for the Cristobal plant within
six months, and to complete delivery and
erection in 24 months. Under the adopted
plan at Balboa, he will begin delivery within
six months, and complete delivery and erec-
tion in 30 months.
*In general, each plant will consist of two
water fronts and a storage pile. The water
fronts will be designated as the unloading
wharf and the reloading wharf, while the
storage pile is to consist of a basin for coal,
a part of which is to be stored subaqueouly,,
and the remainder to be piled above it in the
dry. Each plant will be arranged to receive,
store, and deliver separately, coal belonging
to individuals and companies, as well as to
the Government; to receive it from any
part of the unloading wharf and transport it
to any part of the storage pile; to reclaim
coal from any part of the storage pile and
deliver it to any part of the reloading wharf.
and to transfer it from any part of the storage
pile to any other part of same. Coal will
be received at each plant by movable unload-
ing towers running on rails supported by the
unloading wharf, and reloaded to colliers and
barges by movable reloaders running on rails
supported by the rl:ading wharf. The
storage rl.. at the Cristobal plant is to be
commanded by movable stocking and re-
claiming bridges running on rails parallel
tot he longir uth'nal -i.e walls of the coal basin.
The storage pile at Balboa will be commanded
by four berm cranes, now at Mliraflores,

traveling on rails supported by a suitable con-
crete and steel trestle running longitudinally
of the basin.
This will be the main coaling plant, and the
machinery specifications were based upon the
following storage facilities, exclusive of the
requirements of individuals and companies.

The preliminary plans for this plant pro-
vided for a normal coal storage pile 1,000 feet
in length, so laid out as to be capable of an
extension 700 feet in length. The demand for
storage space by individuals and companies
is much larger than was first anticipated,
and in view of this fact, award for the ma-
chineryhasbeen made with the understanding
that the coal storage pile will be increased
in width from 250 to about 300 feet. The
length may be increased later from 1,700 to
2,000 feet, if it is found practicable. The
other principal elevations and dimensions to
which the Cristobal plant will conform are
as follows: Elevation of extreme low water,
one foot below mean sealevel; of extreme
high water, 1.65 feet above mean seaievel.
elevation of bottom of slip alongside wharves,
41 feet below mean sealevel; elevation of
bottom of wet coal pile, 19 feet below mean
sealevel; assumed elevation of top of we: co-al
pile and bottom of normal dry coal pile
one foot above mean sealevel; elevation of
top of normal dry coal pile, 21 feet above mean
sealevel; elevation of top of emergency dry
coal pile. 31 feet above mean sealevel; eleva-
tion of decks of wharves, 10 feet above mean
Unloading towers-The unloading towers
at the two plants will be similar in general
construction. Their functions will be to mine
coal from vessels and deposit it into the hop-
per built in the tower, whence it may be de-
livered through chutes to the conveying syv-
tem, or to cars; to mine coal from vessels
and deposit it by bucket into the storage pile
behind the tower; to mine coal from storage
pile behind the tower and deposit it into the
hopper, and to mine coal from the storage
pile behind the tower and deposit it by
bucket on board vessels. The "normal rated
capacity" of each tower will be 250 tons of
coal an hour, and the maximum rate, 300 tons
an hour, when unloading from colliers or
The towers will be of steel construction,
steam-driven, self-contained, and self-pro-
pelling. Each unit will travel on two parallel
pairs of rails laid at the elevation of the decks
of the unloading wharves and spaced on 30-
foot centers at Balboa, and 35-foot centers at
Cristobal. There will belaid between the pairs
of rails, also at the level of the decks of
the unloading wharves, a single 5-foot gage
railroad track, suitably located for the re-
ception of coal from the tower hopper.
Each tower will be supported by four trucks
of four wheels each, and the minimum speed
of travel will be 50 feet per minute. The
towers will be equipped with buckets o 100IO
cubic feet capacity each, and a receiving hop-
per, 12 feet wide and 30 feet long, \ith a
capacity of 50 tons of coal. into which the
buckets will discharge, either in unloading
from vessels, or reloading from storage pile.

The trolley movement of the buckets will be
actuated by two direct-connecred steam en-
gines installed at each plant. The body of
of the hopper will be made of 1-inch iron
plates, with the top edges protected by an
8" xS" coaming of white oak, and will be pro-
vided with the necessary gates, chutes, etc.,
to deliver coal to the conveying system, and
to the cars on the track beneath the tower.
The boom, or apron, on the water side of abe
towers will be capable of lifting or folding by
movement in a vertical plane, so that when
fully housed, no part of it will project more
than four feet beyond the concrete face of the
5Stocking and reclaiming bridges-The stock-
ing and reclaiming bridges at the Cristobal
plant will be of the duplex type, that is, each
bridge sill be equipped with two buckets; at
Balboa. the four Pacific Division berm cranes
will be reerected and used as stocking and
reclaiming bridges. Each bridge will be
of steel construction throughout, electrically
operated and self-propelling. Each will travel
at a speed of not less than 50 feet per minute
on two pairs of rails, each pair supported by a
concrete and steel structure adjacent to the
storage basin, and will be mounted on eight
truck., each truck to have four pairs of wheels.
Each bucket will be of 2U) cubic feet capacity.
and will be capable of reclaiming, singly or
together, coal from any depth of the wet, nor-
mal dry, and emergency stock piles Their
hoisring and trolleying movements will be con-
trolled, simultaneouslyy or independently, by
electric motors. The functions of these
bridges con-ist in stocking coal into any part
of the storage pile by means of a part of the
conveying system supported by the bridge;
of reclaiming coal from any part of the storage
pile and delivering it to the conveyor; and
of stocking and reclaiming simultaneously.
They will be able to stock, or reclaim, at the
rate of 1,000 tons an hour.
Reloaders-The reloaders will be nearly
identical at both plants: they are of steel con-
truction throughout, electrically operated, and
self-propelling. Their function is to receive
coal from the conveying system and deliver
it to colliers, barges, and other vessels of vary-
ing freeboard and size, and location of hatch.
es. To attain this end, each reloader is to be
fitted with a hopper for the reception of coal
from the conveying system of sufficient size to
regulate the flow; a conveying system to trans-
fer the coal to the discharge end of the re-
loader, and an adjustable arm, or boom,
equipped with a telescopic chute to deliver the
coal. Each reloader will travel on rails laid
at the elevation of the decks of the reloading
wharves, and will have a "normal rated ca-
pacity" of 500 tons an hour. The boom will
house similarly to the boom on the unloading
Conveying sy.tem-A conveying system is
provided for the transportation of coal within
the plant, namely, from unloaders to storage:
from unloaders, to reloaders; from storage to
wharf bunker, from unloaders to wharf
bunker: from storage to reloaders, and from
one part of storage to another. \With this
s.strem at Cristobal, it will be possible to re-
ceive coal simultaneously from two vessels
located anywhere along the unloading wharf,
one, tio or three unloaders being at work
on one vessel, and transport it from both
vessels to the same part of the storage
pile; to the reloader. direct, or to the wharf

bunker direct, within the capacity of the
conveyors supplying the bunker. If coal
from both vessels is being transported to
the storage pile, it will be possible to re-
claim coal simultaneously from any other
part of the -torage pile by means of the re-
maining bridge, and transport it to the
reloaders, or wharf bunker, direct. The con-
veying will be accomplished b, a double-
track 10-ton automatic electric car system.
Wharf bunkers-Each plant will be provided
with a whari bunker, approximately 2l feet
wide and I1J feet long, for the supplying of
coal to tug., barges, and other small craft.
Each bunker will have a capacity of 1,500
tons of coal and will be constructed of struc-
tural steel, sith floors and walls of concrete.
It will be di ided by two transverse partitions
into three bins of 500 tons capacity each.
The slope of the floor will be 45 degrees from
the horizontal, but all sides and partitions will
be vertical. Each bin will be pro ided with
two valves for delivery of coal to barges, each
having a clear opening 24 inches wide by 36
inches nigh, and so spaced as to make the bin
self-emptying. Each opening will be set 28
feet above the deck of the wharf, and will be
controlled by a gate operated from the ground
or from a footwalk along the front of the
bunker. Each outlet will be provided with a
folding chute, able to deliver coal at the
Cristobal plant, when fully extended, on a
plane seven feet helow wharf level, and at
Balboa, 20 feet below wharl level. At its
shortest extension, it must deliver coal at
Cristobal on a plane 'even feet above wharf
level, and at Balboa, 10 feet above wharf level.
Each of the three bins will be fitted with a
second chute, designed to discharge coal at a
point five feet above the deck of the wharf,
fitted with a valve at the lower end to control
the flow.
Power substation and distribution system-
The operation of all parts of both plants, with
the exception of the unloading towers, will be
elect.-ical, and suitable substations of ap-
proved design, will be erected at each point.
The electrical apparatus will be furnished by
the General Electric Compay as subcontract-
or. The operation of the unloading towers
will be actuated by steam powc.-, for which
engines and boilers will be supplied b) the
Weighing devices-Each of the weighing
devices shall automatically record net weight
of coal, in so far as practicable Where
the location and service of any weighing de-
vice is such as to render it impracticable to
weigh automatically, the nearest approach to
automatic action possible, consistent with
convenience, cost, and accuracy, shall be em-
ployed; in any event, all weighing devices
shall record the weights automatically, net
weights where practicable, and where not
practicable, the taking out of the tare shall be
effected by simple, reliable, and accurate
means. All weighing devices shall weigh
within one per cent of absolute accuracy
under maximum or minimum conditions of
operation, and they shall be such as to re-
quire but little attention to keep them in
efficient operating condition, shall be thor-
oughly protected from dust, grit, and mois-
ture, shall be so located as not to be injured
by falling coal, or otherwise, and shall not
require the services of a skilled man to ob-
serve and record their weighing.
All weighing devices shall be of such design,
location, and construction as to render it

practicable to check their records by means
of passing known weights, separate weighing
on other scales of coal weighed by them, or
otherwise, and such means of checking shall
not require undue time or skill. If any de-
vices for checking weights are made as or-
dinary commercial adjuncts of the weighing
devices, they shall be furnished and erected
as part thereof.
5ubsiructures-The forces of the Canal
Commission will undertake the erection of all
masonry substructures for the coal handling
machinery, as well a. accomplish all wet and
dry excavation, masonry, and backfill for the
plants in general: also., supply all rails for the
support of the unloading towers, brides, re-
loaders, conveyors, and other a-:.-e-sories;
all foundations, including anchor bolt- and
masonry plates, and, practically all the con-
crete construction and fixed anCh'iraces. The
substructures will be of solid masonry, oup-
ported by 6-inch ,ai:s.on; sunk to rock.
Forces ol the Panama railroad are now, en-
gaged in establishing rail connection to the
island opposite Cristotal, on which the coal-
ing plant will be located, by means of a
bridge of the bascule t pe.
This plant will be secondary in importance
to the plant at Cristubal, and ni storage
capacity, and facilities lor handling will be
about one-half of those of the main plant.
Two plans for the handling machine> Were
prepared, one calling for entirely ner. equip-
ment, and the otier providing for the utiliza-
tion of the four berm cranes at Miraflores
Locks, which cost originally atout $300,000
The last mentioned plan was adopted, and is
the bai., upon ahich the award lr the hand-
ling plant at Balboa waa made.
The principal dimensions and elelations
to which the Balboa plant sill conform are, as
follows: Elevation of extreme low water, 10..t
feet below mean sealevel: elevation of ex-
treme high water, 11 2 feet above mean sea-
level; elevation ul bottom of slip, 45 Icet be-
low mean sealevel; a-sumed elevation of top
of wet coal pile and bottom of normal dry coal
pile, six feet above mean sealesel; ele\ati-n
of top of normal dry coal pile, 2th feet abu,.e
mean sealevel, elevation of top of emergency '
dry coal pile, 30 feet above mean -.ealevel;
elevation of deck, of wharves. 16.5 feet above
mean nealevel; length of storage bain, 500
feet: water frontage, 1,300 feet.
The storage facilities will consist of the

The fundamental difference between the
two plans prepared for the Balboa plant lies
in the fact that in the design lor all new equip-
ment, the storagee basin would be commanded
by stocking and reclaiming bridges. while in
the accepted design, it will be commanded by,
the four double cantilever cranes, and in this
system no provision is made for connecting
the unloading towers with the storage pile.
The adoption of the alternative plan has
necessitated an increase in the width of the
storage basin to 340 feet, but its length, 500
feet. remains the same. Under the pre-ent
plan, it is purposed to load coal into storage
by chuting from the unloading towers directly
into the coal pile behind, to be rehandled fur-
ther by the cranes. The conveying system

will be required to serve not only the two
unloading towers when reclaiming from stock,
but the crane. also, when they are engaged in
this operation, the capacity of 1,000 tons of
coal an hour being obtained with all six units
at work. The guaranteed rate of handling at
Balboa is the -ame per unit as at Cribtobal.
The cost of rt-m.-.ving and reerecting the cranes
will be bo-rne b'. the Canal Commission.
In adapting the -teamdri\ven st-eeple tower

sign to the proposed con\ cMin s- i-term at the
two plants, the addition of tao '2-valve hop-
pers on the shore side ul the Cristubal p!ant,
and of one 2-valve hopper on the shore side
,f the Balboa plant will be necessary

Health Conditions In the Chagres River VUllages.
Dr. Charles A. Hearne, quarantine officer
at Colon and Criitubal. who visitedd the na-
tive vilAge of San Juan on the Rio Pequeni,
one ni the principal branches of the Chagres,
on Auus.ut 25 and 26, to investigate the re-
ported h:a3., mortality among the inhabit-
ants, has ad is.ed that in the village itself
there has been no abnormal number of deaths.
The police report, covering the period from
October 1, 1912, to about September 1- this
)ear, showed 2s births and eight deaths, out
of a population of about 400. Two cases of
4ickne.i were found, both showing evidences
of malarial infection. The hanitary conditions
in the village were found to be fair, no mos-
quitucs were seen or heard, and the people
claim there are none. On the return trip,
the doctor visited and in-pected the following
river village: Nlaranal, population 20;
Limon, population 25, Boca de Ciatln, popu-
lation 40, Santa Rosa, population 20; Juan

Meeting of Women to Discuss a Central Organl-
zation for Local Church Work.
There was a large gathering of women at
the seawall Nlethodi-t Episcopal Church in
Panama, on Saturday, September 6, in re-
sponse to a call issued by the Woman's
Foreign Missionary Society of the church for
a missionary rally. The object of the meeting
was to bring together the women engaged in
Christian work, especially missionary work,
in the Canal Zone, and to discuss plans for the
organization of a central society for the con-
tinuance of such work. There were present
members of the Ladies' Aid Society, Empire,
St. Luke's Altar Guild, Ancon, and Ancon
St udd, Club, besides women not affiliated with
any organization.
The program was begun with an organ
voluntary by Mrs. Keyser of Ancon; fol-
lowing this, 12 little children of the mission
school gave a series of recitations, songs, and
dialogues. Other numbers included a dra-
matic reading by Mrs. Taylor of Empire, a
reading by Mrs. Smith of Empire, prayer
by Mrs. Stokoe of Balboa, and an address of
welcome by Mrs. Kingsbury of Ancon. Dr.
Rosalie Slaughter Morton of New York City
was present and spoke informally on the work
of the Methodist,church in the countries of
South America through which she has been
traveling. The president of the society, Mrs.
Harry Compton, read a paper on the aims and
outlook of the organization, some of the lead-
ing points of which were, as follows:
The Woman's Foreign Missionary Society
is affiliated with the Baltimore branch of the
woman's society of the Methodist church.
The yearly dues of $1, and the receipts from
life memberships, are sent to the branch. All
other funds are expended in support of
scholarships in the local mission school, and
for the society's expenses. In 1912, the
society paid $100 toward the education of a
young girl. The effort so far this year has
been centered in the establishment of a play-
ground in the school yard. The equipment
is being made and will cost the society about
$60. One of the youngest children in the school
has been made a life member of the Little
Light Bearers, the children's branch of the
Woman's Foreign Missionary Society; such
a membership costs $10. A feature of the
work of the society is the monthly mission
study. Meetings havebeenheld during the
year at nine homes, and the social hour, fol-
lowing the study and consideration of routine
matters, has always proved pleasant. The
women have held one public service in the
church. In May, a reception was held in the
church parlors in honor of Bishop Homer
Stunrz. on the occasion of his first episcopal
visit to the church.
The enrollment of pupils in the mission
school is over 100, and the average daily at-
tendance is 90. Twenty scholarships, held by
nine girls and eleven boys, are now main-
tained. Lessons in manual training and sew-
ing are features recently added to the work of
the school. A class in first aid to the injured
is also conducted.
The president of the society announced that
the new church in Guachapali will soon be
completed, and urged the need of a woman
teacher to take up the workamong the women
and children living in that section, one who
can make her home on the premises. The
society was asked to consider the possibility

of raising money for the support of this teach-
A plan to bring the societies of women-en-
gaged in Christian work on the Isthmus into
a central organization was discussed. Each
society will be asked to appoint a committee
to confer regarding the matter, and prepare
suggestions for such an organization to be
submitted at the meeting of the foreign mis-
sionary society in October. After adjourn-
ment, refreshments were served in the church
Miscellaneous Notes.
Mrs. James Bowdry of San Francisco, gave

Special Meeting of Pythian Sisters.
Canal Zone Temple, No. 1, Pythian Sisters,
held a special meeting on Monday. September
1, in honor of Mrs. Alice F. Boylan, supreme
mistress of finance of the Supreme Temple.
Ten members of the order were present. The
Canal Zone Temple presented its visitor with
a gavel made of native hardwood, and a pair
of Satsuma cuff links as souvenirs of her visit
to Panama. Mrs. Boylan sailed on the Car-
tago, for Bocas del Toro on Tuesday, Sep-
tember 2.

Capt. Courtland Nixon sailed for New
York on the Panama, on Saturday, Sep-
tember 6, on his annual leave of absence.
Mr. Lewis A. Mason, assistant engineer
in charge of the design of floating caisson
dams for the lock entrances and the per-
manent dry dock, sailed for San Francisco
on September 4, accompanied by Mrs. Mason,
to supervise the fabrication and construction
of the first caisson by the Union Iron Works.
Mr. B. F. Harrah, Assistant Examiner of
Accounts of the Isthmian Canal Commission,
with headquarters at Washington, arrived on
the Isthmus, on Monday, September 1, on
business connected with the office of the
Examiner of Accounts.
Mr. Charles M. Pepper, one of the foreign
trade advisers for the Department of State
at Washington, is spending a few days visiting
the Canal work, which he has seen in various
stages of progress, both in French and Ameri-
can times. He expects to retire from his
present post on October 1.

Emigrants from the Lake Area.
In anticipation of the rise of Gatun Lake
the Department of Law has been engaged for
the past year and a half in removing from the
area the native families, who live in detached
houses scattered through the jungle, or in
little villages clustered on the banks of
streams or along the line of the railroad.
In that time about 70 per cent of the popu-
lation has moved out of the area, going either
above the 87-foot contour or entirely out of the

lake watershed. Some moved promptly on
being notified, others had to be taken out
when the water was almost at their doors;
some have disappeared in the higher levels
with the trackless silence of woods creatures;
and some have moved in bodies, forming new
settlements in which is preserved the com-
munity life of the old. Most of the popula-
tion of old Monte Lirio mosed together up
the Gatun River and founded a village which
they call Limon. On the other hand, about
350 people scattered over an area of several
square miles were collected and moved, by
rail and water, a distance of nearly 60 miles
and set down on a townsite laid out for
them. These were people living around
Gorgona. Gorgonita, Waterloo, and Mata-
chin, who were taken 40 miles down the
Bay of Panama to the location of New Gor-
gona, set apart for Canal Zone emigrants by
the Government of Panama.
A special train of four box cars and four
second-class passenger cars carried these
people and their belongings to Balboa, ma-
king two separate trips. While the crowded
passenger cars stood on a sidetrack near
the "angle wharf," an electric crane at the
wharf edge loaded the goods into the hold of
a lighter. The lighter wtas 112 feet long by 40
feet in beam, and the men of each party
found room ifjr pa- .age on the deck. The
women and children were carried aboard
the tug Cliamr. which towed the lighter.
In the vessel were loaded tables, kitchenware,
sewing machines, alarm clocks, charcoal
brnzicrs, and other household goods; cor-
rucated iron was carried along in quantities
!or roofing the new dwellings, and potted
plants for adorning them. Several cayucos
were taken aboard, and many chickens,
ducks geese. turkeys, pigs. and goats, as well
as dogs and one sp.-tted fawn. though no cats
were to be seen. It was well toward evening
each time when the barge left the wharf,
on its way down the bay. The Chamn re-
turned to Balboa during the following night,
having delivered the emigrants and their
goods without mishap
At New Gorgona, the people were quartered
temporarily in a single large building, erected
by the Republic of Panama. With this as
headquarters, they arranged new locations
and set to work at constructing new dwellings,
either of rough timber or of poles cut from the
woods. The Government of Panama sells
them building materialsat cost, and is main-
taining a commissary store at New Gorgona
to supply food and household necessities at
cost prices. The Republic has purchased
irom the Commission, at upset prices, the
schoolhouse for native children and the Catho-
lic church at Gorgona, and these, as well as
the dwellings whose owners will dismantle
and load them, are to be transported to New
Gorgona free of charge.

Isthmian Canal Commission, Ancon, C. Z.

Commissary for Ancon.
In view of the decision to continue the
settlement at Ancon indefinitely as quarters
for the gold employes, a commissary of a per-
manent character has been authorized. It
will be a one-stor) building, 110 feet long
by 70 feet wide, about the size of the Empire
commissary, will be constructed ofhollow cun-
crete blocks, and will have a tile floor in
salesroom. A refrigerator, 20 by 20 feet
in size, will be installed, together with the
usual counters and shelves. The commissary
will be situated near the tennis court, on the
site of the old French building, now used as
a storehouse by the Quartermaster's De-
partment. The permanent force to be quar
tered at Ancon. will comprise about 161
families, and 130 bachelors.

Rise of Miraflores Lake.
The opening in the dam of the spillway of
Miraflores Lake is to be closed on or before
October 1, in order to begin the filling of the
lake area to the height required for the pas-
sage of vessels. In the construction of the
spillway. a gap was left in the lower part
of the ogee next to the locks, for the passage
of the waters of the Rio Grande and its
tributaries; filling this gap with about 700
cubic yards of concrete will effect the com-
pletion of the mass masonry of the spillway.
Forces of the First Diviston will complete the
installation of the control gates before the
water reaches the crest of the spillway at
38.67 feet above sealevel. The rise of the

lake will nercesitate the removal of the
cement shed on the se.,t side the ap-
proach to lirafllurrc Li.ck. and of the
branches of railroad below the 55-foor con-
tour. The buildings in the native .ectiln o:i
Miraflores village have been demoli-hed, and
the Commission buildings in the lak- .re a sill
be removed. The police personnel %a- trans-
ferred to Pedro ligr.l and consolidated with
the tjation of that village on September 15,
and the Nliraflores commissary' store is closed

Diversion of Drainage South End of Culebra Cut.
Since .ugust 15. 1012. the drainage sater
from the portion of Culebra Cut south of
the summit Alt excaation ha- been pas,'.i
through the lS-f or cul'.ert in the middle
wall of Pedro Mi-uel Lock On Sep
member II. th ; drainage wa, diverted to
the culvert in the east %all, to allow the
cleaning frum the center wall culvert of
the silt and debri. which hare settled in it.
This cleaning, which has to be accomplished'
before the rise of Miraflores Lake, will prob-
ably require about 15 da\s
Rents under Resocable Licenses to Private Coal
and Fuel Oil Companies.
L'nder the plan of issuing revocable lic:en-zs
to private dealers in coal and fuel oil who de-
sire to maintain coal storage and oil tanks at
the Canal termini, the following rates for rent
al haee been approved' The rate for 'p.-ce
occupied by oil tanks, ill be one-half of a
cent per square foot per annum at Balboa, and
one-third of a cent per square foot per annum
at Mount Hope. The real estate or improve-
ment tax on investments made by the fuel
oil licensee will probably be one per cent
per annum. Under the present arrangement.
the licensee of coal storage will have little.
if any, occasion to make improvements
Where the Government makes these im-
provements, the ground rent and the rent
for the improvements will be consolidated into
one annual fee in lieu of the ground rental and
the tax for improvements charged the licensee
for fuel oil tanks.
A Day's Record in Loading Gravel.
American steam ditcher No I, belonging
to the Panama Railroad Crnmpany. made a
good day's record at dump No. I gravel pil
on Saturday, September 6. when it loaded
1.424 cubic yards of gravel in five hours and
fifty-fiv minutes, approximating a rate ol
237 cubic yards an hour. The machine was
in charge of Steam Engineer E. Richards,

Excavation was first begun in Culebra Cut
on January 20, 18S2, by the French, and has
continued with only six years' interruption
(1889-1995) to the present time. During the
operations of the two French companies: ,
about 17.000,000 cubic yards of material were
taken from this section useful lu the com-
pleted Canal. On May 4, 100, hen the
Americans took charge, there were about 701
men employed in excavation work. using
side excavators. served by small French dump
cars and Belgian locomotive. Work was;
continued with the equipment left b, the
French until it could begraduall, replaced
with modern steamshovels, engines, and car.
The first American steam-hovel was placed
in operation on November II, 1904, and the
last of the French excavarors was discontinued
on June 16. 1905. On August 1 1905, there
were eleven American steam-honiels at work.
but their output was greatly handicapped by
lack of proper transportation facilities. \\ork
in the Cut did not begin on a large scale until
February, 1907, and from that time until
1911. when the maximum output iwa reached,
there was a steady increase in the amount
of material excavated as new equipment %kas

Canal Excavation In August.
The grand total of excavation to September
1 was 209,218,030 cubic yards, leaving to be
excavated under the revised estimate of July
1, 1913, 23,134,970 cubic yards.
The total excavation for the month of
August was 2,658,785cubic yards, ascompared
with 2,443,353 cubic yards for the corre-
sponding month last year, and 2.706.223 cubic
yardi, in August. 1911. The wet excavation
for the month was 1,607.672 cubic yards, and
the dry excavation 1.051,113 cubic yards.
In the Arlantic section, the total excavation
was 514,250 cubic yards. Of this amount, all
but 2,161 cubic yards consisted of material
dredged from the Atlantic entrance to the

Canal by forces of the Sixth Division
The total excavation in the Central Divi.
sion was 926.900 cubic yard., 83,200 cubic
yards of which consisted of material removed
in sluicing operations back of Gold Hill, per-
formed by forces, if the Fifth Div.ision. Cen-
tral Division shovels, working on the bottom
of the Canal, in lidc-es, and on the banks of
the Canal in rem,.\vinc material to le--en the
pressure from above, took out a total of
810,101) cubic yards. In addition, 33,600
cubic adrd: of material, charged to "Plant'
excavation, were removed.
In the Parifc section, operations by the
Sixth Di i-ion resulted in the removal by
dredge, of 1.U12,381 cubic yard., 726.256
cubic yard- fr-jm the Pacific channel, and
28o,127 cubic yard- from the terminal basin.
Dry Cexca,.ation amounted to 205,252 cubic
yards. 102,235 cubic yards from the rrminal
site, Lby forces of the Second Diviion, and
103.014 cubic yards from the Canal prim,.
south of liraflores Lock-, by force of the

Changes in Cofferdam at Balboa Terminals.
The plan for the cunstruc:tion of the coffer-
dam around the ourtr end- and approaches of
thI, drylocks for the Pacific terminals has
been modified a irh the view of decreasing the
amount of fill nt:cest.ary for its construction,
and thus advancing the dare of its com-
plretin. The- conditions and character of the
undlerlying rock and the soft mud of the
harbor bottom indicated that a ver) flat Mlope
i,_,.ld be a-suned on the harbor side and the
elitct ..it the ilira ll quantit., uf material which
%a-t dumped Irom the trestles caused a bulg-
ing i.A, the bottrni in tht entrance channel to
the repair "harf and a settlement of about
18 in,.hc in one section of the west trestle.
In centrall, firm rock \at found in driving the
piles for the tr;etle, loner than had been indi-
cared by previous borings over this area.
For there reasons it wa- deemed advisable and
expedient to bring the southwest end of the
coflerdam trestle inland and away from the
channel. Accordingly, two driver began
driving a single-track trestle on the relocated
line un August .5 and completed it on August
10, 410 lineal feet of iretle being required to
connect iirh the old railroad fill along the
sh.-re. About 600 lineal feet of the original
double trestle were utilized and the remainder
is being removed and the material used else-
where. The fill from trestle on the present line
uill he 39.850 cubic yards as compared with
96,000 cubic yards on the original location.
Spoil will be dumped on the seaward side
.,f the trertle until the fill is even with the
track, when a spur uill be laid on the fill and
fannedl" outnard, to extend the dam as re-
qiired. For the rest of the way, from the old
to the n. a -ite of the dredging landing, a
similar procedure will be followed, starting,
however, dirccrtly from the present shore.
The s..ft fill will be exrendcd out,as desired
and then armored on the sea face with rock.
In the excavation for the drddocks, part of
the fill will be removed by the steamshovels,
though the dam aill be extended sufficiently
to protect the site. The remainder of the
spoil will be taken out by dredges, after the
completion of the dr)dotk excavation.
Soft clj', fol the filling is being taken from
the northeast toe of[ Diablo Hill, adjacent to
the right of way of the Panama railroad.
This excavation %ill be useful later in the
construction of the permanent yards and the
main line tracks to Bdlboa. It is proposed.
to operate trains to Balboa direct from Coro-
zal, by pa-!sing along the east toe of Sosa
Dam; southbound passenger trains will go
fir't to Balboa, thence to Panama, superseding
the present arrangement by which trains
proceed to Panama, and Balboa is served by
a shuttle train.
Steamshovel and Dredge Men.
Local No. 19, International Brotherhood
of Steamshovel and Dredge Men, will hold
its next meeting in the lodge hall at Empire,
on Sunday, September 21. at 12.30 p. m.

An addition. 30 b) 40 feet in size, will be
made to the oil house of the Quartermaster's
Department at Balboa. for the storage of rope
and cable.

bishop of the Episcopal church in America,
and formerly missionary bishop of Cuba and
of the Panama mission, has accepted the
appointment of vice-chancellor of the Uni-
versity of the South, Sewanee, Tenn. Bishop
Knight, who has been overseer of the Panama
mission as commissary of the presiding bishop
since its establishment in 1907, will continue

C..nal Zone Schools to Open October I.
The public schools of the Canal Zone will
open on Wednesday, October 1, 1913. All
children residing in the Canal Zone, whether
of employes or n 'nn:-7'oyes, and all children
of nonresident emplo, esof the Isthmian Canal
Commission are entitled to free school privi-

grades one to eight.
Schools for colored children will be opened
at the following places: Ancon, Paraiso, Cu-
caracha, Culebra, Empire, Mandingo, Gatun,
Mount Hope, Cristobal, and Majagual.
High schools will be conducted as follows:
A branch high school at Gatun for first
and second year pupils residing at Cristobal
and Gatun.
A branch high school at Empire for first
and second year pupils residing at BasObispo,
Las Cascadas, Empire, and Culebra.
The consolidated high school at Ancon for
first and second year pupils residing south
of Culebra, and for all third and fourth year
pupils in the Zone.
Pupils attending the grade schools should
report at 9 a. m.; those attending the Gatun
high school, at 9.30 a. m.; those attending
the Empire high school, at 9 a. m.; and those

attending the Ancon high school, at 1 p. m.
Requests should be made of the office ol
the Superintendent of Schools, Ancon, im-
mediately for railroad transportation for all
white children living in communities where
schools of appropriate grades are not pro-
vided, or brake service furnished.
Entertainments at Gamboa Stockade.
The first of a series of entertainments for the
prisoners in the Gamboa stockade z as given
on Sunday, September 14, and included music
by the Marine Band and addresses by Mr.
Richard L. letcalfe and Judges H. A. Gudger
and \. H. Jack-on. It is proposed to provide
educational facilitiesfor rhe illiterate prisoners
under the direction ol the superintendent of
schools with the cooperation of the chief of
Examlnallon by Board of Local Inspectors.
The Board of Local Inspectors %ill conduct
examinations at the Administration Building,
Ancun, on Wednesday, September 24, 1913,
beginning promptly at 2 p. m., for persons de-
siring to procure the following classes of licen-
ses: Pilots, masters, mates, marineengineers,
chauffeurs, and navigators of motor boats.
All applicants for licenses must procure from
the Executive Office, Ancon, forms of applica-
tion and information respecting the filling out
of same, at least one da\ before the examina-
tion. Applicants for chauffeurs' licenses must
also bring automobiles.
Lake Serice for Tourists.
In order to provide suitabl) for the tourist
traffic during the coming season, the Panama
railroad has decided to add a trip through the
lake as one of the regular features of its sight-
seeing service. This arrangement will be ac-
complished by lashing two cement lighters
broadside, and conening them into a passen-
ger barge by decking them over, providing
awnings and railings, and installing toilets
and other conseniences. This will give
a floor space ol about 40 by 100 feet, sufficient
to accommodate chairs for approximately 400
people with safety and comfort. The impro-
vised barge will be towed through the lake
channel from Gatun by one of the Canal Com-
mission tugs, making a landing near Tower
R, about 150 feet north of Gamboa cabin,
out of the way of any vessels using the Canal.
A small landing stage will be built at that
point, with steps leading down to it from the
track level.
Under the proposed arrangement, thesight-
seeing train will leave Colon for Catun at
about 8 a. m. Arriving at Gatun, the pas-
sengers will transfer to the lake barge, while
the train will proceed to Gamboa to await
there the arrival of the barge. The tourists
will then be taken by train over the relocated
line and the I. C. C. spur track to a point near
the Empire suspension bridge, where an ex-
cellent view of Culebra Cut may be obtained.
From this point, the train will run into
Panama, and then return to Colon direct.
Parties from Panama wishing to avail them-
selves of the lake trip may leave Panama on
train No. 2, connect at Gatun with the lake
service, and return to Panama by the sight-
seeing train. Parties from Colon may either
return by the sightseeing train, or remain
in Panama, as they see fit. It is probable
that a charge of $1.50 per person will be made
for the lake trip, in addition to the round
trip rate of $4 over the railroad, which will
be only $1 more than the rate charged

tourists at the present time for a trip on
the sightseeing train over all divisions. It
is planned to place the new service in effect
as soon as the barges can be converted and
passed through the locks.
Association of Canal Emplo)es.
The Association of the Panama Canal
Builder.- was formed at a meeting held by 21
employes of the Isthmian Canal Commission
and the Panama Railroad Company, at the
resident engineer's office, Corozal, on Sep-
tember I1
The object of the association is to furnish
to all its members such mementos, historic
facts, and other reminders, as will enable them
to recall the daa s of the building of the Pana-
ma Canal and to give their friends the best
possible idea of the actual conditions under
which the work was accomplished.
The association has already prepared a
certificate commemorating the building of the
Canal, and the Chairman and Chief Engineer
has agreed to affix his signature to one cer-
tificate for each employee who has been ac-
cepted to membership in the society.
A neatly bound record of the building of
the Panama Canal and the people who built
it will be prepared and dedicated to Col.
George \V. Goethals. This record' will con-
tsin photographs of historic importance, com-
parati..e figures, and the name and home ad-
dress of ever,' white person who has ever been
an emplo3e of the Isthmian Canal Commis-
sion or the Panama Railroad Company since
the beginnine of the Canal construction. The
record will be compiled as rapidly as official
data can be obtained from the files of the
Chairman's office. The work is of such a
nature that it will require several months to
complete it, and any members separating
from the senice in the meantime will be
forwarded a copy to the address given on the
application blank.
A membership fee of $5 will be charged,
which will entitle every member to one certifi-
cate,one of the records, and all the good offices
and influences of the society. It is requested
that all who are eligible identify themselves
with the association without delay, in order
to complete the records while the present or-
ganization is still intact.
The secretary treasurer will be bonded in
the sum of $2.,00.
The members of the board of governors
are: H. 0. Cole, president; Dr. D. F. Reeder,
first vice-president; J. B. Fields, second vice-
president; F. T. Hamlin, secretary-treasurer;
L. A. Smith, J. C. Keller, D. E. Wright, E.

Miraflores Lake Herier for Towns at Southern
End of Canal.
The work of constructing the new water
works for the southern end of the canal is
now well under way and forces are at work on
the new pump station and purification plant
at Miraflores, and the high service reservoir
at Ancon.
The project, in t-neral, comprises three
electric pump stations,. one located east of the

railroad track at Miraflores, to be known as
Miraflores pump station N.. 1: one to be lu-
cated between the Miraflores spillway and the
southern portal of the Panama railroad tun-
nel, to be known as NMiraflores pump station
'No. 2: and one to be located along the main
line of the Panama railroad bettcen Panama
ind Balboa and in the vicinity of the new
Administration building, to be known as the
/.ncon pump station; a purification plant,
heated on the hill immediately above and
nirth of the Miraflores spillway, consisting of
aM aeration basin, a head house containing
aluminum sulphate and hypochlorite of lime
storage, together with mixing chambers, float
chamber, solution tanks, controllers, electric
elevator; sedimentation basin having a ca-
pa4ty of five million gallons; a filter plant
containing 14 filters of the rapid mechanical
graijty type, each having a nominal capacity
of 0 125,000 gallons of water every 24 hours,
anda clear water basin having a capacity of
approximately 900,000 gallons; and an
office and laboratory building within which
will ie provided, in addition to the laboratory
and Afice, living quarters for the chemists
who till be on duty in connection with the
operalon of the plant throughout the 24 hours
of the ay.
The project also includes a 350,000-gallon
wash _ter tank located on the hill to the
south _t of the Miraflores tunnel, at anele-
vation approximately 200 feet above sea-
level. istank will store the water delivered
to it by ump station No. 2, and will furnish
the filte water for washing the filter, for
miscella ous uses around the plant, and will
provide supply of filtered water through a
16-inch in for the town of Pedro Miguel.
The ra. water from Miraflores Lake will
pass from e surface of the lake into a screen
chamber, d through the screens in this
structure, the sump beneath the electric
pumps loca d in pumpstation No. 1. From
this point, e water will be pumped through
a 30-inch m to the aeration basin, where
it will be t wn into the air about 15 feet

vertically, through specially designed nozzles,
and will break into spray, falling to the floor
of the basin, then passing into the mixing
chambers in the basement of the head house.
At this point the water will receive its dose
of aluminum sulphate and will flow into the
sedimentation basin Here it will be allowed
to stand for a period of eight hours, alter
which it will pas- on to the filters. After
passing through the filters, the water will dis-
charge directly through the floor of the pipe

gallery into the clear "ater basin, from 'hi,-h
point it will flow through a 36-inch line into
the h.,pochlorite injection chamber located
near pump station No. 2. At this point the

and a 16-inch main between Miraflores and
Ancon. which will be connected with the
injection chamber, and, in addition, there will
be laid from thi. point to Panama a new 30-
inch main, thus giving three mains between
the purification plant and the Ancon pump
station The Ancon pump station will con-
tain five electrically-driven centrifugal pumps,
three of which, having a capacity of 5,000
gallons per minute, eaLh. will pump the
water directly from the mains into the dis-
tribution system for Panama, Ancon. and
Balboa, at a pressure not to exceed 30 pounds
per square inch. The existing 1,000.000-
gallon capacitN low ser ice resenoir will be so
connected to these pumps as to form a storage
and surge re-ervoir. The two remaining
pumps in the Ani:on station will be of the same
ty. pe as the lot sern ice pumps above referred
to, but \ill be designed to develop 100 pounds
per square inch pre.'sure in the mains, and, in
ordinaryr y ser ice., will pump the water into the
high n.r'ice rc-enoir on Ancon hill; in
this way it will furnish the water supply for
the high lying districts and also a high pres-
sure for use in ca--e of fire.
As a part of the project, there is being con-
structed an e:ere:iuen tu the present 1,000,000-
gallon high service reservoir on Ancon hill,
which, whun completed, will iave 2.500.000
gallons storac:- at an tel'atiun of 300 feet
above -,ealevel. Fur fire protection in the
city of Panama. the high s-rvice pumps in the
Ancon pump -tatimn and the main pipe lines
will be s-o arrangedl that the high service pres-

hypochlorite bleach will be applied and Lhe sure can, within 15 seconds after the fire
water will pass from this chamber into the alarm i; turned into the station, be thrown in-
mains leading to Panama. to the main without affecting the low pressure
At the present time there are a 20-inch service for Balboa; and, vice versa, in casd

When the entire project' i; ra.jd% for serve ice
no water will reach Panama from the Rio
Grande reseruir, anl all lines now existing
north of Pedr.l MiguL I all have been removed.

Reservation Established.
The land between Gatun and Gamboa ex-
tending from the Canal on the west to the
Canal Zone boundary line on the east, has
been declared a reservation within the mean-
ing of the Executive Order of April 17. 1912.
and notices will be posted against trespassing
on same. In addition, the chief of police has
been instructed to have the people living at
Frijoles and Monte Lirio notified verbally
that the reservation has been created, and
that they will not be permitted to continue
the cultivation of land within this area.
Practically all the privately owned land in this,
section has been adjudicated, and is now the
property of the United States. The towns
of Frijoles and Monte Lirio will not be in-
cluded within the reservation at this time.

Track Connection Removed from Center Wall of
Garun Locks.
Forces of the Atlantic Division began on
September 4 the removal of the trestle across
the west side of the upper approach to the
Gatun L.ocks, by which railway connection
had been maintained with the center wall.
The wall is thus left in traffic isolation, except
for the portage of materials across the tops
of completed lock gates, or from vessels
which may come alongside the approach
walls, extending out from the center wall
at the upper and lower ends of the locks, or
from the cableways across the lower approach
wall. A locomotive crane of 35 tons capacity
has been left on the center wall, and is able
to travel the length of the locks, traversing
the inclines between levels under the control
of block and tackle. The present use of the
crane is in the completion of the lamp post
erection, placing of machinery, handling
cable, etc. The placing of the trusses for
the roof of the control house began on Sep-
tember 4, and cement, sand, rock, and vitreous
roofing tile have been stored on the top of the
center wall in quantities sufficient for the com-

pletion of the building The heavy, opt-rating
machinery for the center wall is all in place.
with the exception of some Uf the chain fender
equipment, and the toting locomotives. All
the lamp posts for the center approach nalls
have been erected, not more than 10 'if the
207 lamp posts required for all three walls
of the locks at Gatun remaining to br- placed
Changes at Pedro Mlguel Yard.

arriving here on December 20, 190S. It
was erected at the dry, dock shops and cost
complete, about $40,000. In the service ol
the Canal Commission, it was used principall,
as a towboat in the French canal between
Cristobal and Gatun.
Erection of Track-span Bridges for Transmis-
sion Line.
The first of the track span bridge:, to be
erected along the main line of the Panama
railroad, from Cristobal to Balboa. to -,upport
the transmission line from the Gatun hydro.
electric station, was set on its rcuncrete pedes-
tals on September 22. This bridge i. situated
on the relocated line of the railroad. above
Paraiso Junction, at about mile post 39
Erection of other bridges is to proceed a-
rapidly as they are put together by the forces
of the United States Steel Products Company
The foundation piers havebeen installed along
the line between Pedro Miguel and Frijoles.
The low area lying between the new ad-
ministration building and the Central Di-
vision dump tracks, near East Balboa, will be
filled in by the Central Division forces.


Family Quarters on Sosa Hill will be First to
be Erected.
The preparation of plans for permanent
family quarters for gold employes at the new
toan uf Balboa will be begun shortly in the
o.ffie .-.f the Canal Commission architect.
TheI family quarters to be considered first will
probably be those for employes whose salaries
are under $200 a month; afterwards, those
for employes receiving about $200 a month,
and lastly those for employes whose salaries
are from .2'00 to $400 a munth. The types
will be ba-ed upon one and two-family houses.
It is the present plan to begin the con-
struction of permanent family quarters on the
nortleist slope of Sosa Hill as soon as prac-
ticable, and the landscape architect is now
engaged in laing out roads in this area. It
is not intended to encroach for the present on
the labor camp in this locality, but eventually
some of the laborers' barracks, namely, tho,e
that are in good condition will be moved to
the new slv er camp at La Boca. The new
family quarter- on Sosa Hill are primarily, de-
signed to take care of the employee, at the
Balboa shops and terminal.
Permanent buildings cannot be erected on
the area recently filled in bet'Aeen Sosa and
Ancon Hills for some time to come. In the
meantime, grading will be done and per-
manent roads and walks laid out in this area,
as well as on the slope of Ancon Hill in the
rear of the new administration building. The
employes in the administration building, now
under construction, will be cared for indefi-
nitely in existing quarters a,: Ancon. and in
Corczal. It is not proposed to erect perma-
nent quartersfor gold bachelor emplo,.es at the
present time. a, the houses recently recon-
structed at East Balboa will be available f,:r
their use during the next few ,ears.
The hotel at East Balboa will take care of
the bachelor employes quartered in that vicin-
it, indefinitely A permanent hotel, however,
ma,. be erected later, and space ill be reserved
for it. The East Balboa commissary will be
continued in use,but a permanent commissary
building will probably be among the first of
the miscellaneous buildings to be erected. It
Isexpected that provision iIll have to be made
for a police station and office of district judge.
as well as a fire station and schoolhouse, as
soon as it is safe to erect buildings on the filled
ground. The building recently reerected at
East Balboa for a post-office will serve for
some time, and the present office and store-
house of the district quartermaster may remain
indefinitely, although space will be' reserved
for a permanent building in the new town. A
permanent dispensary will probably be re-
quired by the Sanitary Depanrtment, as well
as accommodations for the local sanitary in-
spector. The larvacide factory, now at Ancon,
will remain where it is for the present. Pro-
vision will be made for a clubhouse, but it is


not yet known whether the new clubhouse will
be of a permanent type of construction, or
whether the one at Empire will be available.
The settlement at Ancon will be continued
indefinitely. There are 94 buildings in that
district available for the permanent force, not
including quarters in the Ancon Hospital
grounds, French houses now used as quarters,
or undesirabletypes, but including nine houses
of the official type. These houses will provide
quarters for 161 families and 130 bachelors,
counting one man to a room. At East Balboa,
there is a total of 19 buildings accommodating
28 families and 188 bachelors. With two ex-
ceptions, all of these buildings are within the
limits of the proposed Marine Corps reserva-
tion, and as the site of the reservation is prob-
ably permanently fixed, the houses will have
to be moved. No additional buildings will be
moved to East Balboa from towns along the
Canal at present.
The organization for the construction of
the permanent Canal buildings has been ap-
proved and is, as follow-:
Gold organization--One architect, one archi-
tect's superintendent, one structural drafts-
man, six designers and draftsmen, four drafts-
men, one junior draftsman. Total, 14.
Gold organization--One general foreman,
two foremen. Total, 3.
Silver organization-Two foremen, one en-
gineer, one mixer, 20 machine operators, 30
laborers. Total, 54.
Gold organization-One resident engineer,
four superintendents, two transitmen or
junior engineers, two rodmen, one general
property clerk, four assistant property clerks,
three clerks, one general mason foreman, one
general carpenter foreman, two general plumb-
ing foremen, one general electrical foreman,
one general sheet metal foreman, one general
roofing foreman, one general plaster and
stucco foreman, one general metal lath fore-
man, one general foreman painter, one general
steel erecting foreman, one general marble and
tile setting foreman; five foremen on mason
work, 10 on carpenter work, three on electrical
work, two on sheet metal work, five on roof-
ing work, five on plaster and stucco work,
three on metal lath work, three on painting,
five on marble and tile setting work, 20
plumbers, 30 electricians, 10 sheet metal
workers, five hoisting engineers, two black-
smiths. Total, 135.
Silver organizatiio'f-One hundred masons,
200 carpenters, 60 roofers, 100 plasterers,
30 metal lathers, 30 painters, 20 tile setters,
20 plumbers, 30 electrical helpers, four black-
smith helpers, 30 steel erectors, five hoisting
engineers, three clerks, 260 laborers. Total,
892. Grand total, 1,068.
The above force will be under the Quar-
termaster's Department, but will not be em-
ployed for some time to come, as plans for
the permanent quarters and miscellaneous
buildings have not yet been prepared.

Settlement Early Took the Lead In Recreation
and Amusements.
With the passing of the village of Gorgona
oneof the most artivesettlements in the Canal
Zone, from a -ocial standpoint. has ceased to
exist. When the Americans took po-ssesion of
the Canal /one in 1904. there were 40 French
houses in the village. To this number the.
Commission added 51 dwellinz- of the various
authorized types, together nith office build-
ings, until the vil!ave in 1912 attained a
population of about 3,500.
In 1905, %hen there were north 20 Ameri-
can families in Gorgona, an association of
men and women was organized under the
title of the House to Hou'e Social Club.
This clhb met the homes of the members for
a social evening once a week. As its mem-
bership increased. a gramophone was pur-
chased to supply miitic furdancinr,, and the
organization resolved itself intoadancin: club.
The meeting-. were then h-ld in the social
hall over the hotel every Saturday e'.vening.
Religious ser\ice,5. conducted by th'- Rever-
end J. L. Wi.,e, Baptist preacher, whr. was
one of the earliest reidenr- of the village,
were held in the old French court h,'ue,
which was situatel near the railroad. In
1907, the Commibsion clubhou-e wa- erected
on the elevation just back ol the site of the
On Thanksgiving Day, 1905, a Sunday
school was organized, its membership being
composed of youn,. men and w.',omen: there
were no children of :choe! age in the village
at that time On Chritma. Day 1906. the
American children of the village enjoyed the
novelty of having a fruit-bearing orange tree
as a Christmas tree. The entertainment was
held in the French courthouse and all the
people in the village took part. Gifts were
presented to each child pre-ent and the even-
ing was spent in singing "home" songs and
hymns. This was the first community
Christmas in Gorgona. It was followed by
others each year which were held in the Com-
mission clubhouse. These community cele-
brations in which the Young Men'3. Christian
Association, the woman'- .:lub, the Sunday
school, and church organizations united. "ere
noteworthy through the htarty cooperation
of the social forces of the village. More than
1,500 children participated in the entertain-
ments and over $1,000 was expended by the
people of the community in the purchase of
Christmas trees and ornaments, presents for
the children, and their entertainment.
In 1906, the young people of the church or-
ganized a Christian Endeavor society which
constituted an important part of the social
life of the village for three years. The society,
besides its own meetings on Sunday evenings,
contributed to the public entertainment by,
holding a sociall" once a month to which all
the people of the village were invited.
The idea of the woman's club movement in
the Canal Zone originated in Gurgona. and
from that village came the suggestion to the
United States Government to authorize the
organization of women's clubs as social
centers for American women in the Canal
Zone. In June. 1907, a social club of women
was formed, the first woman's club in the
Canal Zone.
The Isthmian Canal Chapter. No. 1, Daugh-
ters of Rebekah, was organized in Gorgona in
1907, its membership being composed of

women from the various villages along the
line of the Panama railroad. In April. 1913,
the order had 90 members. The Odd Fellows
celebrated their anniversaries in Gorgona
with much success, the people of the tillage
preparing for the entertainments. In 1911.
Orchid Chapter. No 1. Order ofl the Eastern
Star, was organized in Gorgi'na, headqtiarters
being held there until early in the spring of
1913, when it moved to Empire. It had X7

Gorgona had the largest membership in rhe
Bo.,' coutb of an:,' patrol in the Canal Zone
organization. There was al-o an active
chapter of the Canal Zone Red Cross.
In 1909 and 1910. Girgona had adrjmatic
company which gase plays in the Ik,-al club-
house, and traveled through the clubhouse
circuit with much 'ticce_;., giving also a
comedy in the National Theatre. Panama,
as a benefit performance.
In bowling and basketball. Gorgona's teams
played an active part in all inrerclaubhou4s
tournaments. The boling team ol 190S
won a handsome silver cup through it, s.kill.
In the l)ll games thebasketball team wa; the
strongest and f-tiest in the league. In indoor
baseball, the Gorg.,.na t.am was a pennant
winner for several :asons. end lfor -ei eral
years the town had a team in the Isthmian
baseball league.
There were three functions in which the
entire village took part; the first was a ban-
quet by Gorgona Texan, in 1')07; the zeciidl
was a farewell Fourth of July banquet held
on July 3, 1912; and the third was a reunion
hel I in the clubhou:.e on July 23. 1913. ,which
wa, attended by the largest number of people
ever gathered there.

The placing of concrete in the lhcks of tht.
Canal ha; co,.-ered a period of appr.-.ximitelv
four years. It began on August 24, lIJ'W,
at Garun: on September 1. 1900 at Pedro
MiguIl, and, with the excepti..n of 1012 cubic
yards laid in 1900. at Mirafl,:rs in July, 1l 10.
The end of the fourth year sees the concrete
work at all lock; practicall. completed.

At Pedro Miguel. during the same p.-riud
the approach and aing wall at the upper end
and the east % ing wall at the lower end, \e:re
built. and the Iower approach wall -as.extend.
ed about 300 feet.
At Miraflores, the lower lock. which uwas
about half done on September 1, 1912. was
brought to completion, and the wing andap-
proach walls at both entrance. were begun
and completed.
Recent and future concrete work at the
lorks embraces a multitude f_, relatively siall
finishing operations around machinery and
track-. etc. Portable mixers are being u-ed in
the remaining construction All of the large
mixing and placing plants have been closed
and are being dismantled. The two berm and
four chamber cranes employed at Pedro MN.

ferred t Nl Miraflore. Locks, upon the comple-
tion of the heavy masonry in the lock proper,
and of the filling of the center \wall; and the
pi-rmanent mixing plant was dismantled after
the approach and flare walls had been built.
All of the berm and chamber cranes used at
Pedro Migutl were transfer-ed tu Mraflures
Locks and placed in service there between
April, 1911, and March 20. 1912, two other
berm cranes, used first at Mirallores, began
work in April, 1911. Final di-mantline of
these cranes began the latter part of Jul\.
191 ;, and i, 'till under way. The auxiliar,
concrete mixing plant at Ga.tur Locks in
servicefrom December 31, 1909, to Mar.lh 11,
1912, and the permanent plant, operated from
August 24, 1909, until August 16, 1913. were
dismantled immediately alter being closed.
The procreis of masonry construction at
all locks from it- beginning to Se-ptember 1,
1913. i indicated by thii summary of monthly

Over half of the material in the lock gates
was erected during the past 12 months. On
September 1. 1912, the total quantity erected
at all locks was 24.787 tons, or 42 per cent of
the required 5S,000 tons; today, the lack of
completenes- of erection is designated by
fra,-tions of one per cent. Since September 20,
the gates of the west flight at Gatun, and the
east flight at Pedro Miguel, have been ready
f.or the pass-age of ve-sels. and the west flight
at Nliraflores. Locks is to be similarly com-
pleted by the end of the month. All gates at
Gatun and Pedro Miguel are to be mechanical-
ly completed by January 1, and at Miraflores
by March 1, 1014.
Gate work at the locks began on March 21,
1011, in prteprin-g the bearings fuor the upper
guard gates at Gatun The erection of these
leaves began on May 17, 1911, and the\ nere
the first to be- -n un, closed. This occurred on
August 4, 1912. and the footwalkoverthem
ua- completed in September. 1912. A year
a-,. all the leaves in the upper and intermedi.
ate levels at Gatun had been erected to full
he-ight, and .ork had just begun on the safety
gates in the lower level and the lower cuard
.aite- The first girders for these eight leaves
were placed on Aucust 29. 30. and 31. 1912:
the loier wuird gates were closed, and sea
water admitted against them, on June 14.
1013. On September 1, 1913, erection, ream-
in:, and rivetina for the gates of Gatun Locks
%ere all within less than one-half of one per
cent of completion.
At Pedro Mi-uel, gate work began at the
upper guard gates, on August 7, 1911. On
September 1. 1912, these gates had just been
cl,,.ed, the skeletons of all leaves were at full
height, and those in the upper le.el had been
hi.-athed. Toda,. erection and reaming for
all gate- are within one percent of completion,
and the finishing work is over *0 per cent com-
At Miraluores Locks, work on the gates be-
gan first on the upper guard gates and the
safety gateolf the upp-rlevel, in August, 1912.
The upper guard gates were closed about the
middle of June, 1913, and the lower guard
gates on August 20. 1013. At present, all 28
lea,'es ha,.e been erected to full height, ream-
ing is 9Q 5 per cent completed, riveting, 90
per cent. and finishing, about 65 per cent
The local force ul the McClintic-Marshall
Conritrut ion Company, the contractor for the
fabrication and erection of the lock gates, was
134 men in Nlas. 1911, at the beginning of
erection It attained a maximum of about
5,310 men, 625 of whom were gold em-
ployes, during the months olf March. April,
and May, 1913. The force on September22,

1913, was 1,940 men, 225 of whom were
gold employes.
The emergency dams are to be held ia re-
serve for exigencies if the lock gates should
get beyond control and allow a rush of water
through the flight. The floating caisson
dams are for use only when the water is under
control, and are not "attached to the lock
structures; the first of these is now under
fabrication at the Union Iron Works at
San Francisco. and will be towed to the Isth-
mus when completed.
The placing of steel in the emergency dams
began in August, 1912, with the laying of the
circular track and pivotal base for theeast
dam at Gatun. Erection of superstructure
proceeded directly thereafter and the dam was
completed, except for final painting, in May,
1913. The contractor, the United States
Steel Products Company. began the final
operating tests on May 20. under supervision
of testing engineers of the Canal Commission.
Erection of the west dam at Gatun began
about the middle of November, 1912, and
tests were completed on August 15. 1913.
This dam was swung across the chamber, and
its wickers and gates dropped into place, in
35 minutes. Trained operators will be able
to do this in 30 minutes, or less.
At Pedro Miguel, erection of the west dam
was undertaken first, beginning on February
1. 1913. This structure was first swung across
the approach chamber on September 2, and is
now under test. Erection of the east dam,
which began on April 1, is about 9S per cent
completed, and the structure will be ready for
testing b3 the time the tests on the west dam
are completed.
The Miraflores east dam erection began on
June 1, and that for the weqt dam on July 1.
All material for all of the dams, weighing a
total of 13,400 tons. had arrived on the Isth-
mus by August 1, and erection was 80 per cent
completed on September 1, being practically
confined to the two dams at Miraflores.
These are slightly lighter than those at Gatun
and Pedro Miguel, because of the lower head
of water against which they will be used, each
of them weighs approximately, 1,987 tons,
as compared with 2,305 tons at Pedro Miguel
and Gatun Locks. The east dam at Mira-
flores will be finished the latter part of October,
and the west dam in November. The emer-
gency dams were described in THE CANAL
RECORD of March 6. 1911.
In addition to the masonry, gates, and
emergency dams there is a great amount of
auxiliary machinery contained within the
machinery rooms and operating galleries of
the walls or in the culverts. This apparatus

as rapidly as the arrival of material or the
advances of precurrent work have allowed.
Today, as far as operating machinery is con-
cerned, connections could be made in half
a day which would allow the passage of a ves-
sel through the sides of the locks for which the
gates are ready, at Gatun and Pedro Miguel,
the work is proportionately as well advanced

Additional Informardon Relative to Transfer of
Artisans to Classified Service In the
United States.
CuLtEB. C. Z September 20. 1913.
To All Concerned-There appears to be some mis-
understanding of the pro%,sions of Crcular No. 4S2.
dated March 19. 1913. publishing the Etecutive Order
which authorized the tranlier to the claisefed service
in the United States. without exasm.,-ntmon. of artisana
within three years from their discharge by the C.'immis-
slon. The following information as furnished in ex-
planation of and supplementary to the circular: it
does not modify the circular in any way:
I. Section 1, paragraoh 2. state- that the employee
must be specifically recommended for transfer In a
correspondhng position. Therefore a machinist will be
eligible to apply for a position as machinist onli. a
blacksmith will be eligible to apply for a position as
blacksmith on],. and go forth. An artisan in any one
trade can not obtain a tran-fer to any othlier trade. or to
a clerical or other position n the clasiEfied .ers-.:e.
2. No list is made up Irom which offcrT af employ-
ment are tendered to artisans ce p1rated fr-om the serv-
ice. To obtain a position in the states of the kind
covered by Circular No 4S2 an ex-employe recommend-
ed for transfer must himself apply in per ,on or b' letter
to the official in charge of the establilhment or es-
tablishments at which he desires employment. grimn
all the details necessary when applying for employ.
ment.and stating that he his been recommended by the
Isthmian Canal Commission for transfer to the position
without examination. and he should req-ueat the oil.nail
in charge to make req.uet on the Washington nrfice
of the Isthmian Canal Commsiorn for his trandler.
3. Circular No. 41? does not con-ltute a promise of
transfer witho'it eamination; to oltlmin a position a
vacancy must e.xjit and the ex.emp-lo,.e rmuit lo.ate it
and apply for it.
Please po't a copy of this letter in a conspicuous place

Water Admitted Into Culebra Cut.
Water was admitted into Culebra Cut
through the four 24-irnch pipes extending into
the lake underneath Gamboa dike, at 9
a. m on Wednesday, October I. It is cal-
culated that the velocity of the flow is about
24.1 feet per second, and that the discharge
amounts to about 354 cubic feet per second.
which will fill the Canal as far as Cucaracha
slide at the rate of 1.6 feet a day. At this
rate by the morning of October 10. when it is
planned to destroy the dike. the depth of
water in this section of the Cut will not be
far from 15 feet. The slide at Cucaracha ha;
completely closed the Cut, in one place to the
73-foot level, therefore, the water discharged
into the Canal by means of the pipes between
October I and 10 will be wholly confined to
the section between the slide and the dike.
To overtop the slide, it will be necessary for
the water in the lake to reach a level of 73
feet above mean scalevel. The lake will prob-
ably reach not to excced 68 feet by October
10. Aditch will becut through Cucaracha slide
to start the water through and, it is expect-
ed that a great deal of the slide material
will be washed into the drainage ditch be-
tween the slide and Pedro Miguel Locks
The drainage pumps in the Cut near the
dike was shut down on Wednesday. Septem-
ber 24; all the machinery was removed and
the building which housed it was razed.
Sufficient water had collected in the Cut
on October 1, from seepageand surface drain-
age to cover the bottom between Cucaracha
slide and the dike.

Spillway Ready for Further Rise of Gatun Lake.
The mechanical installation of the opera-
ting machinery for the regulating gates at the
spillway of Gatun Dam was completed on
September 25. The 14 gates are now in place.
surmounting the crest of the ogee, at 69 'eet
above sealevel. and ready to maintain the
rise of the lake above that elevation. Tempo-

ray electrical connections were made, in order
to te-t and operate the machinr-n, and the
installation of the permani-nt cables and con-
trol equipment is now under -a,,. The oper-
ating machinery and the gate its-If, were
made to do sen ice in grinding true the fixed
ironsset in the upporring piers between which h
the gates will operate; a cutting tuoil at-
tached to the side of the gate made of it a
sort of vertical shaper when the gate wai
lowered. Afterward, the irons were smoothed
by hand to a maximum variation of .005
inch. The horizontal seats on the crest of
the ogee were babbitted after the lower edge
of the gate had been milled to a true huri-
zontal surface.

Progress in Cable Installation at Catun Locks.
On September 13, the cable pulling gang
of the First Division at Gatun pulled 127,121
feet of control cable and 2,200 feet of No.U000)
3-conductor p'-wecr cable into the shafts and
tunnel running under the lock flours in the
vicinity of the control hiuuse.
The control cable waa drawn down a-
shaft in the we-t wall, through the tunnel
and up a shaft ro the operating tunnel in the
center wall. The power cable wa, drawn
down a shaft in the west wall, through the
tunnel under the center %%all and both lock
chambers to the east wall, and up through
the shaft. The tunnel under the locks at
this point is approximately, 125 feet belong\
the coping level, so that each cable had to be
supportedd at the upper ends of the vcrtieal
shafts to prevent :ts -lipping don into the
duct When the installation is completed,
the cable will be supported in the duct, by
a combined action of friction between the
cable and duct, and by a curved duct at the-
bottom taking the thrust. Each of the control
cables was 380i etr long and each of the power
tables was 350 feet in length.

Formal Opening of Trammays.
The street railway system of Panama. in

Tug Successfully Passed Through the West Flight
at Gatun Locks on September 26.
Gatun Locks were operated for the fir.t
time on Fridav September 26, when the sea-
uoing tuz Gale. now in the service of the
Si\th Divi.ion. v as passed through the west
flicht from the Atlantic channel to Gatun
Lake. This date v.a; chosen, because of the
approaching departure from the Isthmus of
Maj James P. Jervey, who had charge of
the nma'onry construction of the locks, and
Of Maj George NM. Hoffman who had charge
of the building of Gatun Dam under Lieut.-
Col. Sibert. The operation was entirely suc-
cessful and was witnecsed by a large number
of people.
The first step in the tillim, of the locks
was to fill the pace between th, upper guard
and ripper operaring eates. This was done
thr.ua.h the oP-inch auxiliary culvert alivee
in the west wall. Thi, operari,.n wa. started
at i1.07 a m no Thur-.la." Septembi:r 25,
and continued ts, about 3.30 p. m., it being
nce ar'. to clih.- the \al,.- twi,.,. during this
period to clear vegetiation aAay,, from the
trash screen at the intake
The second step iads also on Thursday,
and con,-itcEd in the filling of the culvert in
the renter wall as a tes-t of the valves and
bulkh.:ad-., a' w,:ll a; the culvert itself. The
upper section unlv was filled, and after
shutting off the risine stem valve at the upper
end, this water vas uaced to te-~t succt:c-:ive-ly
thecenterculverts of three Ivels, being finally
deposited into the lower lock by opening the
cylindrical valve- in that level
To remove the bulkheads from the upper
end of the wet culvert. it was necc-_ar,. to
equalize to some extent the pre-sure of the
lake by pre--ur, .O:n the lower sil- of the bulk-
head. It was originally intended to do this by
accumulating the leakage through the bulk-
heads in the culv-.err. between the upper rising
stem valves and the bulkhead.. The leakage
of the bulkhead' wa-. however. .o slight that
it was decided tt introduce water into the
upper cnd ..f the upper lck which communi-
cares with the rear side of the bulkheads
through the we-t t ulE rt Thi- "as done, and
the bulkhead removed at 10 a. m. un Fri-
day, September 26 At I1 20 a im.. water was
admitted to the upper end of the upper lock
from the west culvert through the upper rising
stem valves and the water brought up to lake
level. The upper rising stem valves were then
closed and this water was passed down the
flight of three locks as a preliminary test of
the valves and culverts of the west wall.
Water was then locked down. step b) step.
from the lake to the lower lock. which was also
being filled by the two-14-inch sea valves in
the lower guard gates.
The filling of the lower lock was completed
about 4.45 p. m, when the sea gate was opened.

Theopeningand closing of the. gates, and the
operation of the cul'.ert va!v.'e and lock .pera.
ting machinery during the rets,. and the lock-
age of the ves:l, were under thi immediate
supervision of Col. H. F. Hodges, the designer
of the locks, their equipment and operating
machinery, and the rEgula tinng works of the
Canal. In this he was aided by Mr. Edward
Schildhauer, the electrical and mechanical
engineer of the Commission, and the inventor
of the bull wheel which opens and closes the
lock gates, and Mr. E. E. Lee, superintend-
ent of erection; Mr. F. C. Clark, assistant
superintendent of erection; Mr. C. P. Fortney,
superintendent of mechanical installation;
Mr. S. H. Grauten, testing engineer, and
Mr. Geo. F. Guynn, inspector of lock gates
and protective devices.
The Gatun, formerly the H. B. Chamber-
lain, is a steel seagoing tugboat, with a length
of 101 feet, beam 22 feet, and a load line draft
of 12j feet. It was built by the firm of
Neafie and Levy of Philadelphia in 1902, and
was purchased by the Canal Commission for
the use of the Atlantic Division in 1906,
arriving at Colon on June 25 of that year.
It is commanded by Capt. F. F. Stewart, and
its navigation through the locks was in per-
sonal charge of Mr. W. G. Comber. The
vessel had among its passengers on this initial
trip, Col. H. F. Hodges, Lieut.-Col. \\ illiam
L. Sibert and family. Mla J ame P.Jervey,and
Mrs. Jersey, Maj. George M. Hoffman, Lieut.
Geo. R. Goethals, and Mrs. Goethals, Mr.
Henry Goldmark, Captain Corning of the
steamer Pau'ama. Mrs. Edward Schildhauer,
and Mrs. E. E. Lee.
On Saturday forenoon, September 27, the
tug was returned to the Atlantic channel,
the record of its progress being, as follows:
8.27-Opened rising stem valves Nos. 254 and 255 to
equalize water in both ends of upper lock.

Work on Panama's Exposition Begun.
The corner stone of the administration
building to be erected on the site of the nation-
al exposition, which Panama proposes to
hold in 1914-15 in commemoration of the
four hundredth anniversary of the discovery
of the Pacific Ocean by Vasco Nufiez de
Balboa, was laid on Thursday, September
25, by President Porras. .The sites allotted
for the different buildings were blessed by the
Bishop of Panama, Dr. William Rojas, and
the plans were ex\-h,,lrd by Mr. Alejandror
Bermudez, the director of the exposition.
Following the laying of the corner stone, Dr.
Ram6n F. Acevedo, secretary of public works,
made an address. The day was made a public
holiday in Panama, partly on account of the
corner stone ceremonies, and partly, because
September 25, under the old calendar, was
the date in 1513 when Balboa first saw the
Pacific. It is planned to open the expo.rition
on November 1, 1914, to continue six months,
and for carrying out the project the Panama
National Assembly has voted a pr.-hminary
credit of S150,1.100. The United St.ars.
Spain, and several of the neighboring Latin.
American republics have been invited to
participate. The grounds front the road to
Las Sabanas, about opposite the orphan
asylum, and cover an area of about 35 acre.

Has Served as Panama Passenger Terminal for
Twenty-seven Years.
The last portions of the old railroad station,
which has served the Panama Railroad Com-
pany as a passenger terminal in Panama for a
period of over 27 ,ears. were removed on
Wednesday, September 24, in furtherance of
the work of improving the ground about the
new terminal building. Prior to 1884. the
railroad company's passenger train, ran into
the ancient station in the vicinity of the
American wharf. The company's annual
report for 1584 states-
"The large increase of pa-nenger business has
rendered ad"di ianal accommodation- for that
departmentl indip'-ns.abl, -and the pa-senger deport
ha- been removed from it- old location to a point
near the brripe and adjoining the Savanna road.
A. Lempjorary houije Cand .latform rtave been erected
there and are now being uved for passenger ac-
rommodlations pending the arrival of material to
bui'l a n- adepit which, has been ordered for
-cn-,e time "
Although the report states that the material
had been ordered for some time, it was ex-
ceedingly -low in coming. for the report of
ISS5 reiterates:
The gre-i need however at this station
SPanman a w-ell aSt Airinwall iColoni i3a new
depot ith en..lo'iures. .o trar the tick-t system
may be put into effect at once. '\'out company
hi- land at bothpihcet in d-tirablelocations."
During the year 18%5. extensive repairs
were made to the Panama wharves; the
Enli'kh harf was extended and the shed over
the American wharf rebuilt. The report for
1886 announced the erection of a new iron
station, the one that has just been torn down,
as well a-an iron station in Colon, which for-
merly stood at the head of Front street and
was razed when the new terminal was com-
pleted on July 23. 1909. in the following words:
*The-e *t1tions were contria3ted for in New
'ork bt our cc.,mpans in Ma. 18ao. and have
b'epn sent out and ererted darnni ite year. They
wIll be rtad.' fi o.:. upatcrni on the 15th o Matarch

of in the report lr ti i..'-i ihhn be put into effect.
.- all the -rrangementl for inaugurating thi sy.vs-
tem arn n.., te' terfrn.'l.d."
The old depot. near the American wharf,
the first building erected by the Panama
Railroad Company in Panama. was de-
molished in 1886 on account of its age and
genr-ral in-zanitart condition After the re-
moral of the pa-:enger bu;ine-s to temporary
quarter- on the site of the recent iron station
in 1884 the upper floor of the old station was
used as quarter- for employes, and the lower
floor as a transportation office for the French
canal company Tao wooden buildings were
immediately cr-i tetd or its site, with suitable
enclosures and a garden between, one for

amount in place 21,962.362 cubic yards. On
September 1, the dam was 99.83 per cent com-
pleted. Additions to the dry fill amounted to
73,797 cubic yards, which were placed on the
north and south toes of the dam, east and west
of the spillway, making the total dry fill in
place 11,743,950 cubic yards
Concrete laid during the month amounted
to 2,104 cubic yards, making the total quan-
tity in place 227,749 cubic yards Concrete
work was 99.45 per cent completed at the
close of the month.
Hydroelectric plant-The total excavation
reported for July was not increased. During
the month, 924 cubic yards of concrete were
placed, making a total of 6,675 cubic yards.
Out of a total of 24,026 cubic yards of
Porto Bello rock placed on the breakwater
during August, 8.247 cubic yards were un-
loaded by cranes and 15,799 cubic yards by
derrick barges. The total amount placed
upon the breakwater to September 1 was
296,693 cubic yards.
Central Division.
The total amount of material excavated
during the month was 843,700 cubic yards.
of which 185,441 cubic yards were classified
as earth and 658,259 cubic yards as rock.
The entire amount was removed by steam-
shovels. 810,100 cubic yards being classified

as primary excav.ation and 33,600 cubic yards
as plant excavation. Of1 the total primary
excavation, 245.000 cubic yavds Here taken
from within the lines of the Canal prism,
and 648.300 cubic yards s from without the
Canal prism, the latter amount beina exca-
vated from slide-, and from high levels as a
preventive measure against slides.
The daily average number of steamnrhovels
at work was 34.65, and the total number of
shovel days Aas 901, as compared with 40.74
shovels at work and 1.01S hovecl days in

Quartermaster's Departmcntl
The force report (f August 27 -howed
39.962 men actuall, working for the Commis-
sion and the Panama Railroad Company.
The actual working force. ,:f he several con-
tractors totaled 2.923 m.i Tlihr.:- nxas a
surplus of labor throughout the m.rtlh. Re-
ports show an Lxcess of emigration over im-
migration during the month of about 1,700.
The cork performed by the building di-
vision was greater in amount than I,:-r any'
pre% ious month since building work aas taken
over by this depart m-nt; it uas practically all
rush work. The number of men employed
was greater than in any single month since
the erection of quarters for American em-
ployes in the early days of the work; a great
deal of overtime was put in. The amount of
maintenance and repair work on Panama
railroad buildings, taken over on August 1,
exceeded anticipations. On February 14,
it was estimated that 12 gangs of 40 men
each, working continuously from March I
to September 1, would complete the demoli-
tion and removal of all American buildings
used as- married and bachelor quarters in
Gorgona. An average of only eight gangs
was used and, in addition to work on Ameri-

can quarters, eight French buildings were
moved and three of them reerected, all shop
buildings were demolished and two of them
moved and reerected, and the work was com-
pleted on the date set.
Save at Ancon and Balboa, there is no con-
gestion in bachelor quarters. The transfer
of families. from Gorgona was completed, and
the regular assignment lists in all districts.
closed in March last in order the the residents
of Gorgona might be taken care of, were
opened. The li.t, of applicanon: lor married
quarters at Criiobal and CuLkln were con-
solidated, and the rules governing assign-
ments to railroad and Commission quarters
were made uniform. There was a decrease
in the total number of applications
The value of material received was $913,-
142.13. This material came forward in 37
steamers having a total weight of cargo, cx-
clusive of lumber, piling, and ties. of 15.942
tons. Nine million feet of lumber were re-
ceived during the month; this is the largest
amount received in any one month during
the American occupation.
Subsistence Department.
The Hotel Tivoli was operated at a profit
of $5.1j21.01. The operation of the line
hotels, laborers' messes, and restaurants
resulted in a net profit of $1.725.70. The
total net profit on subsistence operations
during the month was $7,347.61.
Department of Civil Administration.
During the month, 53 civil and 50 criminal
cases were disposed of in the circuit courts,
and 72 civil and 470 criminal cases in the
district courts.

Central Division to be Abolished-Work Appor-
tioned Among Other Departments.
The Central Division will be abolished
at the close of business on Friday, October
10, the date set for the blowing up ol Gamboa
dike. It was first organized on July 1, 1909,
succeeding the Department ,f Excavation and
Dredging, and was assigned the Canal terri-
tory extending frUm the south toe of Gatun
Dam to the north end of the lock -.ite at Pejro
Miguel, a distance along the axi- of the Canal
of 31.69 miles. It embraced the entire extent
of the former Culebra and Chagres Divisions,
which hat.e since been known as the Culebra
and Chagres sections of the Central Divi-ion
Its scope ol operations also included the con-
struction of the Naos Island breakwater, the
clearing of timber from the channel in the lake
section, and such municipal, sanitary, and
building work as was included within its ter-
ritorial limits. The Canal work was divided
into five construction di=tricts,and was placed
incharge of Lieut.-Col. D. D. Gaillard. asdivi-
sion engineer, with the following assistants:
Mr. Earl A. Bronk, chief clerk: Mr. Louis K.
Rourke, assistant division engineer; Mr.
A. S. Zinn, resident engineer; Mr. Mark W.
Tenny, Mr. R. W. Hebard, Mr. W. L. Thomp-
son, and Mr. George H. Ruggles, assistant
engineers. Of the di. ision engineer's assistants
at that time, only two, Messrs. Zinn and
Tenny, are now connected with the organiza-
With the resignation of Mr. Rourke on May
1, 1910, a reorganization of the work was
effected. The position of assistant division
engineer was abolished, and that of general
superintendent of construction created. The
five construction districts were consolidated
into four, as follows: The Chagres River dis-
trict, extending from Gatun to the Chagres
River, at Gamboa; the Empire district, ex.
tending from Gamboa to the Empire suspen-
sion bridge; the Culebra district extending
from the suspension bridge to the railroad
crossing north of Pedro Miguel Lucks, and the
Pedro Miguel district embracing the exca,.a-
tion between the railroad crossing and the
locks, the dumps south of Pedro Miguel, and
the construction of the Naos Island break-
water. At the beginning of the dry season in
1909, the clearing, grubbing, and burning of
trees and brush in the Gatun Lake channel
was begun, and a total" of 950.4 acres was
cleared up to June 30, 1910.
On May 10, 1911, the engineering branch of
the division was reorganized. Previous to this
time, the field and office work had been han-
dled by the resident. engineerat Empire, with
offices in change of assistant engineers at
Las Cascadas and Paraiso. The two latter
offices were abolished, and their work trans-
ferred to the office of the resident engineer at
Empire. Slides became troublesome during
1910-11, but the movement at Cucaracha,
with which both the French and the Ameri-
cans have had to deal, ceased temporarily, the
last steamshovel cut at this point having been
made in the early part of June, 1911, on the
permanent berm at the 95-foot level. The
slide at Culebra began to assume a formidable
aspect at this stage. Clearing in the Gatun
Lake section, embracing a total area of about
1,132 acres, was completed during the fiscal
year 1910-11.
During the fiscal year 1911-12, it was de-

cided to continue the plan of decreasing the
pressure on the Canal banks at all places
where breaks were likely to occur, by remov-
ing the material abote, and this arrangement
has continued without interruption until the
present time A board was appointed and
submitted a report on the Naos lbland break-
water, which had been giving trouble for
some time, due to the livingg of the bottom
under pressure cau-ed by the veieht of st.ine
dumped Irt-m the trestle. The board recom-
mended the building of a double trrtle, whi,'h
permitted of dumping on either 'ide, thereby
spreading the fill, and the plan wau carried out.
The Chacre,' district of the divisi,,n was
abolis.hed on Augu-t 19, 1912 and the title
of it changed to the Relocation Dump-.. On
October 1, 1912. th.- Empire district %a-, ex-
tended from the Chauress River tii Station 17-
60 the Culebra district from Station 1760 t-,
Pedro Miguel Luck-,, and the Pedro Migul.-
district nas changed to compri-c the Central
Di ision tracks south from a point opposite
the north face of the northeast winc .all ')l
Pedro Miguel locks, and the Mlirarure-. and
Balboa dumps On september 20, 1I12, the
Empire district was made to include the hled
on the nest bank at Culebra. On N.,ocmb-er
1b, 1912, the timekeeping u. the Cub:bra and
Empire districts was concentrated in the
office of the division engineer, and on Janu-
ary 15, 1913, the samc action wai, taken vith
respect to the relocation dumps. On JulN I,
M112, the Empire shops, former under the
division, and the Las Ca-cadas wrecking out-
fit, were tran-lerred to the Mechanical
Di% ision.
The Naos Island dike, 3.29 miles long, con-
tinued to give trouble during the fiscal ear
191'2-13, and it ha, proved one ol the most
difficult pieces of eni'cnering the di' iHon has
had to contend with. LUpto June U, 1913, the
tre.-tle had been entirely completed, and filled
aith the exception of a stretch about 600 feet
long. The settlement continued, and in one
locality, the vertical movement %\as as much
as 50 feet. Not a single loot ol the trestle
constructed during the pa-t three sears re-
mainsi at present under the track for which
it was intended, hbaing moved to one side
laterally as much as IIJU leet. So large has
been this movement that actual observations
in recent months have shown that the quan-
tity of stone required to complete the dike up
to its present height nas at least ten times the
theoretical quantity which would have been
required had the bottom been unyielding. The
dike ha, nearly always slid out when the sur-
face of the water i- at the lowest elevation, at
which time, the pressure on the bottom of the
dike is maximum.
The distribution ol the work after the
division is abolished is outlined in an official
circular printed on another page of thi' i-,ue
of THE CANAL RECORD. Lieut.-Col Gaillard,
division engineer, on account of ill health,
was compelled to return to the United States-
on August 9, 1913.
The total amount of explosives used in this
territory since the bliginnirin ol work b%
the American, is approximately\ 3S,729,L00i
The total amount of material remove d from
the territory of the Central Divi-ion frum May
4, 1904 until September 10, 1913, the date
steamshovel operations were permanently
suspended, including all accessory work, with

the exception of sluicing back of Gold Hill. is,

Falling Off in Immigration.
According to the figures of the quarantine
service the number of steamship passengers,
who embarked at Colon for foreign ports
during August, was greatly in excess of the
number who landed; the total was 4,267, con-
sisting of 1,935 cabin, and 2,332 steerage pas-
sengers. The number of persons who landed
from foreign ports was 2,403, consisting of
1,189 cabin, and 1,214 steerage passengers.
The number of persons who embarked over
those who landed was 1,860. The immigra-
tion from the West India islands consisted of
135 cabin, and 858 steerage passengers. This
is a falling off of 665 in the number of steerage
passengers, as compared with the month of
July, and shows that tne information, which
was recently disseminated throughout the
islands to the effect that no more employment
with the Isthmian Canal Commission is to be
had, has been of benefit. Apart from the
West Indies, the country sending the most
steerage passengers to the Isthmus of late is
Colombia. The number of steerage passen-
gers from Colombian ports in August was 103,
as compared with 139 in July. There were
only 53 steerage passengers from Europe
during the entire month. The number of per-
sons arriving "in transit," practically all
tourists, was 2,407, as compared with 2,306
in July, an.increase of 101.
The number of persons who landed at the
ports of Panama and Ancon during the
month from foreign ports was 570i.con iting of
453 cabin, and 117 steerage pj.-.ngcr-. The
numberof persons who embarked for foreign
ports, was 554, consisting of 382 cabin, and
172 steerage passengers. The number who
landed over those who embarked was 16.
The net emigration from the Isthmus during

Destruction of Gamboa Dike.
The dynamiting of Gamboa dike will take
place at 9 a. m., on Frida\, October 10. 1 he
drilling of holes was completed on \\ednesda.,
October 8, andt the work *Af leading them
was begun the day before. Over 1.000
holes, extending over every part of the barrier.
have been drilled to an average depth -*f 35
feet. Owing to the fact that the 24-inch dis-
charge pipes leading from the lake into the
Cut has been increased by two from the num-
ber first planned, making six in all. the Cut
between the dike and Cucaracha slide is filling
rapidly, and it iF estimated that by the morn-
ing of the 10th, the water o ill be within about
five feet ofthelakelevel. OnTue.day.Octoher
7, the stage of water in the lake was 67.2 feet.
and that in the Cut at 57.6 feet above sea-
level. It is the present plan to ditch thrnou.h
the slide at Cucaracha on the day before the
dike is destroyed Work on the dredge land-
ing and pontoon bridge approach at Paraim-,
has been advanced in anticipation of this
event. and on Saturday night, the steam.
shovels completed the work of excaat ing~the
recess in the east bank of the Canal. It is
necessary to build a concrete pier for the east
bridge approach, and this work had reached
the point on T'ue-da where the concrete
could be poured This w ork is expected to be
so far completed by Friday as to be entirely
out of the way of the water when it enters
this part of the channel.

Seismic Disturbances.
An earthquake shock, which, in intensity,
has not been equalled since the establishment
of the Ancon seismograph station, occurred
at 11.25 p. m., on Wednesday, October I.
The needles on the Ancon seismograph inere
thrown off the paper, and the amplitude of the
shock was only recorded to 75 millimeters.
Its duration so far as the perceptibility of
individuals is concerned is estimated to be

about 25 seconds. A secJnd pronounei-.i
shock of les. violence thin the fir-r occurred
at 11 43 p. m Otaober I Th.- seiism.teiraph
recorded vibrations, for a period of unei hour
and 16 minutes after the movement first
began. The direction as indicated lo, the
record was from southwe-t to northea-t, and
the approximate distance ol the epic.ntir of
the disturbance was 115 miles. The inten.:it,
was Force VI on the Ror-si-F,.,rel tale, I to X.
The abose shock was only one of a :erie <.
which began at 1.48 p m., on \\ednesda,.
October 1. All appear to I.- r,-lated and to
have a common point of origin. thought tu be
southwest of Panama city in the province at
Los Santos. From 11.25 Wedni-sda. night.
until 5.1S the following morning. eleven di_-
tinct movements were recorded, and up tu
and including Monday, October 6. there had
been 24, three only of Ahich could be cla--c-J
as pronounced. The third shock to be
plainly felt occurred at 5.06 p. m., un Satur-
day, October 4, but it %iat little mure than
half the intensity of the first -eiere disturb-
ance and lasted not more than seven seconds.
Advice receiv.'cd b. the Panama G(o,..rn-
mcnt from points in the interior. and wircL:e-
message-, to the United Fruit Company from
Bo.-as del Torin and Port Limon, indicate that
Wednesday night's shuck %a&- n.t experienced
in Costa Rica; that ahile noticeable at
Bocas del Toro, and at David, in the pruiince
of Chiriqui, it was not strong enough to d, an,
damage, and that its echfit to far a' known
,as greatest in the province .of Lo. .anto-
about 110 miles distant Irom Panama Cit',.
In the village of Los Santo- the tower of th
church, destroyed by the earthquake of e:p-
tember 7, 1882. was again toppled over; the
government building wais wrecked; the wall,
of the police station crat ked, and two or three
dwellings damaged. In Ma-.arat.a in the
same province, the church tower fell and at
Las Tablas some damage was done to build-
ings. Late advices received b, the Panama.-
nian Government indicate, that probably the
heaviest damage aris done in the vicinity iif
Tonosi, in the province of Lou Santo-. No
fatalities have been reported aide from th>:
death of a woman from fright in Ptnoinoumn.
province of Cocd. In Panama Cit3. th..-rc
was no damage of imnpertanre. \VedneL da,%
night's shock caused slight cracks to dcelup
in the walls of some thrc-e-stijr:, -tonc build-
ings on Twelfth street. near Santa Ana Plaza,
and the one on Saturday afternoon had a
similar effect on a stone building on Ioner
Central avenue. There has been n. .lam.imi g

Permanent Water Sitae Registers.
Forces of the Lighthouse Subdivision are
engaged in erecting, for the Second Dii' %.,n.
four concrete toners for permanent 'water
stage registers to record the lekation of the
surfaces of Gatun antd Nliraiflore- Lakes %hen
the Canal is in operation. One of these is
situated at Gatun, between the Panama
railroad and the present edge of the lake,
and about 200 feet south of the concrete
wharf for small te-sels. The base uf this
toaer is 72 feet above scalevcl and the floor
of the gage-recording ruo'm is at elevation
plus 92. At the upper end if the lake and
north end of Culebra Cut, is a second t,'wcr,
situated on the east bank of the Chfagres
River, about 300 feet upstream from the
Gamboa bridge of the Panama railroad. The
base and floor of this tower are at ele-ations
72 and 100 feet, respectively. The higher
level than at Gaiun is for the purpose of
better recording the rises in the river.
Two other towers are at the uppr and
lower ends of Pedro Miguel Lock. The one
at the outer end of the northeast wing wall
will record the levels at the extreme southern
end of Culebra Cut. It i; -et at the same
level as the tower at Gatun. The other, at
the end of the southeast wing wall, %%ill cage
the surface of Miraflores Lake. Its base is
38 feet above sealevel, and the flour, 0b feet
A fifth tower will be constructed below the
Gatum Dam spillway. Part of the material
for it has been delivered at the site, and
erection will begin shortly
In construction, these are modified forms
of what has been designated locally as the
Atlantic and Pacific type of range tower.
The concrete was placed between collapsible
arcel forms which were used for the erection
of the lighthouses along the two entrance

channels. The ruof has been extended, the
interior stairway omitted, and a bridge foot-
walk added, at tlh.- level if the floor. The
fIundation base ,.-f the tower, are concrete
slab. octagonal in plan, ha, ing inscribed
diameters of from 16 to 18 f'cr, according to
the depth of water in which the towers are
built The inside of the -halt is cirular,
seven feet 10 inches in diameter, and the
wall varies in thickness from four inches at
the tup to 15 inches at the base. The towers
are deigniked to withstand any shot k of wave
action to which they mas be sub- jected.
All of the towers will be equipped with
automatic water -tagee registers, and those at
Gamboa and Pedro Miguel will e3ah, in
addition, L... equipped with an anemumeter,

Rise segan October 1, to Provide Passanle Between
Pedro Miguel and Miraflores Locks.
The formation of Miraflores Lake began on
October 1, when a timber bulkhead wa' placed
across the drainage culvert in the -pillway
dam, which, with its bottom at 5.3 feet above
sealevel, was the final diversion .f the Rio
Grande and its tributaries, the Pedro .Miguel,
Caimitillo, Camer6n, Cocoli, and Do-
minica Rivers, during the construction of the
spillway. The opening is being filled with
It is estimated by the hydrographic office
that the normal run-off, calculated from 22
years' rainfall measurements, from the 55.5
square tniles of lake watershed will raise the
lake surface to elevation 35.8 feet above sea-
level by the end of October; to elevation
38.67, level with the top of the ogee of the

The location and outlines of Miraflores
Lake are indicated in the accompanying
sketch. The purpose of the lake is to avoid
the excavati-,n which would have been re-
quired for a sealevel channel from the site of
Miraflores Locks to Pedro Miguel, approxi

of the channel across the lake, bet wecn the Lt
locks, is 10 feet above sealevel, which is 5;

normal operating level of 55 feet above the
sea, by December 4.
Should it be desired to fill the lake earlier,
however, water may be drawn from the high
level of Gatun Lake and Culebra Cut, through
the culverts of Pedro Miguel Locks. To
fill Miraflores Lake completely, hom dry land
to proposed normal level, would lower the sur-
face of Gatun Lake, from its present elevation
of about 67 feet, not more than .35 foot.
Filling Culebra Cut will lower Gatun Lake
about .118 foot. Hence, to fill both Cut
and Miraflores Lake would lower Gatun Lake
from its present level less than six inches,
which is equivalent to retarding its rise
about three days. Further comparison of
the two lakes is shown herewith:

Panama, for which a pumping and filtration
plant, capable of handling about 15,000,000
gallons daily, is under construction on the
cast side of the lake.
The northeast section of the lake area is
crossed by the relocated line of the Panama
railroad, between Miraflores tunnel and Pedro
Miguel. Filling is now in progre-- to increacut
the area available for Pedro Miguel village,
east of the railroad, and a depressed area
between the track and Pedro Miquel Locks
is also to be raised above the 55-.foot contour.
The Canal village of Miraflores is being re-
moved, and the native houses in the lake area
have been demolished or burned. The San-
itary Department has cleared the area oa
trees and brush below the 55-foot l vel, in
order to prevent as far as possible the breeding
of mosquitoes.

To Provide Maritime Quarantine Regulations for
the Canal Zone and the Harbors of the Cities
of Panama and Colon, Republic of Panama
Whereas the official opening of the Panama
Canal will require a revision of the maritime
quarantine regulations of the Canal Zone
and the harbors of the cities of Panama and
Colon, Republic of Panama, and
Whereas the Government of the United
States and the authorities of the Canal Zone
are authorized to establish such rules and
regulations for the ports and harbors of said
cities, by virtue of the second paragraph of
Article VII of the Treaty between the United
States and the Republic of Panama for the
construction of the Isthmian Canal, signed
November 18, 1903. which paragraph reads,
as follows:
"The Republic of Panama agrees that
the cities of Panama and Colon shall
comply in perpetuity with the sanitary
ordinances whether of a preventive or
curative character, prescribed by the
United Stares and in case the Government
of Panama is unable or fails in its duty
to enforce this compliance by the cities
of Panama and Colon with the sanitary
ordinances of the United States the Re-
public of Panama grants to the United
States the right and authority to enforce
the same."
and Section 6 of the Executive Order of
December 3, 1904, known a. the Taft Agree-
ment made between the Secretary of War
of the United States and the Chief Executive
of the Republic of Panama, which section
reads, as follows:
"Section 6. This Order also shall be
inoperative unless the proper Governmen-
tal authorities of the Republic of Panama
shall grant power to the authorities of
the Canal Zone to exercise immediate and
complete jurisdiction in matters of sani-
tation and quarantine in the maritime
waters of the ports of Panama and
and Article I of Decree No. 66 of December
6, 1904, issued by the President of Panama,
agreeably to said Executive Order, and pub-
lished in the Official Gazette, No. 70, of 1904,
which article reads, as follows:
"Article I The authorities of the Ca-
nalZoneare empowered to exercise freely.
immediate and complete jurisdiction in
all matters of sanitation and quarantine
in the waters of the ports of Panama and
Colon. In consequence, the authorities
of the Republic shall proceed in conform-
ity with the provisions of this decree to
the end that these may be strictly com-
plied with."

191J. Maria T. dr Basque filed witb the Joint Com-

in Houses 713, 719. 808. and 8J3. in the town of
Goigona which houses appear in the variouE record
pertaining thereto as the property of Hilario V. Seixas.
Subsequently, on July 24. 1913. Seixas filed a claim,


Vol. VII, No. 7.

(Docket 1.550) for the value of these houses. In a
letter of the attorney of Seixas to the Collector of
Revenues dated February 1, 1908, the location and
history of these houses is given, as follows:
"House No. SI, situated on let No. 5, block

It seems th ul Seixas refused to sign the lease issued
by the Isthmian Canal Commisson. On January 7.
1908, the Collector of Revenues, in a letter to H. V.
Seixas, made the following statement:
"You are in possession and occupying certain
lots in the town of Gorgona. which are the property
of the Isthmian Canal Comlmiiision I am idvi.sed
by Mr. Robinson, distri.:t li. coUllctor. that you
have refuidl to sign leuaes for this rarcperti. I
ha.- therefore to advise you. if it is not your in-
tenition to ign leases as provided for by the
Government of the Canal Zone for property that
you are occupying it will be necessary for me to
take steps at once to have you evicted from the
property referred to."
No further action was taken until July 12,1909. when
the assistant attorney for the Isthmian Canal Com-
mission wrote the following letter to Seixas:
"Ancon, July 12, 1909.
Dear Sir:
On April 2, 1909. Mr. Grover C. Bradford, dis-
trict tax collector, wrote you relative to the four

71 Heie notined 'ou th3t unless you signed leases
to th-e l...ion ror before tihe lOthof April. it would
be necessary for the Canal Zone Government to
bring suit for the possession of these lots.
This is to further notify you that unless you
sign leases to these lots on the regular forms re-
quired by the Government of the Canal Zone on
or before the 25th day of July, 1909. and pay the
back land rent, the Government of the Canal Zone
will take such steps as may be necessary to secure
possession of these lots and to collect the back

Very truly yours,
(Signed) W. K. JAcKsoN,
Assistant Attorney for 1. C. C."
Under date of July 29, 1909, the district tax collector,
Mr. Grover C. Bradford, in writing to the attorney of
Seixas, makes the following statements:
"The form of lea-e enloned Is the one that was
ued at the Lime the munil:palitie.i were abolished,
and hive been tn use ever since that time and it
seems to me that the case of Mr. Setata should be
governed In accordance with the existing circum-
stances at the time the above mentioned form was
put 4n use which wasabout April I. 1907. I know
that you will say that you want a contract wherein
something u promised or agreed to by the Govern-
ment in the way of a compensation. should the lands
be re-iuired for Canal purposes. but in all previous
-cases of this nature these matters have been placed
'before a commission to decide on what the proper-
ty o.ner should receive as a compensation, and I
t'elieve tr his aae procedure will be followed
in the future and that the Government will consider
.any just cla m."
The continued refusal of Serxas to sign any leases
led to the institution of a suit for unlawful detainer on

August 14, 1909, in the District Court of the District
of Gorgona. Judgment was rendered by the Diatrict
Court in favor of the United States. The further pro-
ceedings in the case are fully described in the answer of
:he United States to the claim of Hilario SeLras hiled
July 26. 1913. as follow
"Judgment was rendered by said District Court
in faaOr of the United Statei of Ameren: tint an
appeal W1as taken therefrom by the defendant Seut-
as to the Circuit Court of the Second Judicial Cir-
cuit of the Canal Zone at Empire; that upon a
tril de ntLo of all the aijues involvedin maid action
on December 21,190). a judgment wsa rendered by
the judye of that Court in favor of the United
States ol America for the sum of SMS6.67 and cost.,
and directed that 3 writ of restitution i-ueC fi.r the
lots or parcels of land in the Administrative
District of Gorgona occupied by the said Sexuas;
t.hat thereafter iso. Seaxas pra..ed a writ of cer-
tiora imrom the Supreme Court of the Canal Zone
in order that the judgment of the C.r-uit Court
of the Canal Zone might be re 'lewed and reversed.
that the Supreme Court of the Canal Zone on Sep-
tember 7. 19llj rendered an opinion refuin;g to
i,.Iae the writ of certiorari prayed for. that there.
after Letxa. secured sl alternative writ of man-
dimun from the Supreme Court of the Canal Zone.
direct.r.g thlt cia e be ,hncwn why the full record
and judgment of the Circuit Court of tne Second
Judicial Ccuitun of the Canal Zone should not be
sent to the Supreme Court for their renew and re.
versal; that upon motion to quash the alternative
writ of mandamus issued by the Supreme Court
in an opinion filed at the November term of .te
Supreme Court of the Canal Zine it ras directed
that the alternative writ be quashed and the pe-
tition for mandamus dismissed, with the costs
against said Seixas; that the decision of the Su-
preme Court of the Canal Zone was duly certified
to the Circuit Court of the Second Judicial Circuit
of the Canal Zone and that on January 9, 1912,
a writ of possession was issued from said Circuit
Court and pcs.e--i.an of the said four building lo.s
and houses thereon within the town of Goreona
given to the United State, of Ameri:ca by the rrar-
shal of the Canal Zone in a..cordance with said
writ of restitution and order of the Second Judicial
Circuit of the Canal Zone."
It appears, therefore, that Seixas remained in pos-
session of the property until January 9, 1912. when the
writ of possession was finally issued by the Circuit
Court, and possession taken by the marshal of the
Canal Zone.
The evidence before the Commission clearly shows
thatSeixas was in possession of these lots many years
prior to American occupation. In accordance with the
rule laid down by the Commission in the opinion on the
demurrer to the jurisdiction of the Commission in the
case of Juan Sotillo, the claimant was entitled to the
protection of Article S of Law No. 50 of 1894, and nei-
ther the acceptance of an Isthmian Canal Commission
lease or license nor the refusal to accept the same de-
prived him of this right. The conclusion reached by
the Commission in this case does not in any way affect
or qur:tion the validity of the judgments of the Dis-
trict Court of the Administrative District of Gorgona,
the Circuit Court of the Second Judicial Circuit, or the
Supreme Court of the Canal Zone. These judgments
relate exclusively to the right of the United States of
America to obtain possession of lands when a tenant
thereon refuses to pay rental. In none of these pro-
ceedings was the question of the right of Seixas to
compensation for the value of his houses presented to
the court.
On October 12, 1909. the following judgment was
entered by the District Court of the District of Gor-
gona, to wit:
"That the plantil do have and recover of and
from the d-le.ndant. the poisse-'iiri of loti Nos. 51,
55 70 and 73 astuated in tne town of Gorgona.
Canal Zone and that the r.lini t also di hive and
recover of and from the defendant the sum of $288.-
72, and th.: co.. &rted at St 30, United States
This judgment included arrears of rentals due to
June 30, 1909, inclusive.
In view of the fact that Seixas remained in possession
of these houses until January, 1912. but has paid no
rental for the lots since the 1st of July, 1907, the
Commission decrees that from the total amount of the
award the following sums be deducted:
First--The sum of $295.02, representing the amount
of judgment entered against the said Hilario V. Seixas
for arrears of rental to June 30, 1909, in.luiive, to-
gether with costs..................... $295.02.
Second-Arrears of rental on lots Nos.
51, 55. 70. and 73, from July I, 1909 to
January 1, 1912,a period of 21 years. to-wit:
(a) Rent on lot No. 51. from July 1,
1909, to January 1, 1912, 2$ years, at $19.-
60 per year ......................... $49.00
(b) Rent on lot No. 55. from July 1,
1909, to January 1. 1912. 21 years. at $47.-
70 per year........................... 11t9.25
(c) Rent on lot No 70. from July 1,
1909, to January 1, 1912, 2| years, at
$33.22 per year....................... $83.05

(d) Rent on lot No. 73, from July 1,
1909. to January 1. 1912. 21 years, at
$27 80 per year .... . ....... $69.50
The valuauon made by the Commission for the four
houses for which claim has been made. is, as follows.
I Hou.eNo. 55. tix No. 713. $1.200. 2 House No
51, tax No. 719. $150. 3. House No. 70. tax No. 813.
$1.300. 4. House No. 73, Lax No. i08. $1.100. Total.
$4 050.
From this total the following saums shall be deducted,
1. Tne sum of $295.02 in full satisfaction of the
judgment entered against said Hilario V. Seixas for
arrears of rentals to June 30. 1909. inclusive, together
with co',ts. $295 02.
2 For arrears of rental on lots Nos. 51. 55. 70, and
73. from July 1. 1909. to January 1. 1912. 615.82.
In accordance with the principles herein formulated
and with the evidence submitted to the Commission.
an award is hereby made against the United States
of America to the owner of certain buildings identified
by the tax No. 713 719. 808 and 813. the said awards

whatsoever nature in the sum of $3.414.18 United

trnbution among the owners of said buildings as their
interests ma appear. onor before the 20th day of Oc-

Arud No 3o-In the matter of the ldaim of Leo-
poldo Cantorii .3or property lteated as Ciagresilo, near
,.,lJ F .Kvles dockeI No I2..-The claim of Leopoldo
Cantarld i; divd Id into two parts, the first part refers
to damage.! all.g-ed to have been caused by the operat-
iona of the C a nl author.ii-i in 1905,. the second to
damage: caued.1 b/ the rUing of the waters of Lake
Gatun in 1912
After carel'ul con-id-raton of all the evidence sub-
mitt.-d. the Comrin.-ion has reached the conclusion
that nuch eva en.-e does not support any claim for
damig- 3 alleg,:. to h 've been suffered in 1905.
With ri..ren.:, I. trte cla'm for damages suffered by
reason ol thI r;iin, of1 ti-he aers of Lake Gatun. The
e.iden.: a-- ubmtted in this case shows that the claim-
'ant Cantrnal i !.- for many year a tenant of the
French Canal Corpany. All the leases issued by the
Frencr Canal Com~iany contained the following
"In c,.,_ the Comoan' sells the land herewith
lea ed or r,:iures it for an purpose of the Com-
pany nu iiatt.r hhit cut:h purpose may be, this
contr. I. ill be d&em-i rescinded. Notice of one
ninth thall be suifif:. nt. and shall be given to
all ] .-.e
It is e'.ilent therefore, that upon the sale of the
property, o[ the French Carnal Company to the Urnited
SLatie the relationship of landlord and tenant estab-
lh.hesl between the French Canal Company and this
Llaimrnit ri-a terminated It la true that the evidence
eubmutLed aow.vs that there w.s a payment made in
August 1905 apparently under a mistaken impres-
'on that the contract of lease which had expired by
reamion ot the sale of the property by the French
Canal Company to the United States of America, was
still in existence.
From 19u3 to 1012. the cliimant remained in un-
dLaturoed possession of the property without the pay-
ment of any rental to the United States. and no at-
tempt was at any time made to establish the relation
of landlord and tenant.
It is evident tat this claimant became an occupier
of public lind? The rights of such o,-cupiers have
been fully set forth by the Commission in an opinion
dated July 25. 1913. Under the terms of this opinion
6ulh occ.upLers are entitled to the value of the culti-
vation on the land occupied by him.
The Commi sion has. therefore. reached the con-
clusion that this claimant is entitled to compensation
for damages indicted. and that the measure of such
compenaatlon is governed by Article V of Law No.
48 of 1882. and Article 739 of the Civil Code.
An award Is therefore made against the United
States of America to Leopoldo Cantoral for the settle-
ment of all rights. claims. or other interests in al
growing crops, fruit trees, and buildings, and all other
improvements of every kind. situated in or near
Chagresilo. in the sum of $1.500 United States cur-
rency. This award shall be paid to the aforementioned
claimant in the amount specified, on or before the 20th
day of October. 1913. and if payment or tender of pay-
ment sla not made on or before that date this Item shall

Proposed Federation of Canal Zone Christian
The question of the organization of a
federation of %\omen engaged in Christian
mork was the principal tupii_ of di-cus-.ion
at the monthly\ meeting of the Woman's
Foreign Nli-ionary Societ, of the Methodist
Episcopal Church hmild in the church parlor,
on Saturday aft,.rnroon, Oct.,bi r 4. The so-
ciety adopted a resolution in flato.r of an

undenominational organization the chief pur-'
o-.e of vhich will be the discussion of religious
issues, c,,i perative planning of future efforts,
and the study of missionary aork in all fields
and by all denominations. There are 10
church sucicties of women in the Canal Zone,
Panama. and Colon, with an approximate
total membership uf JOu. Should such a led-
eration at is proposed be lorrmed it would
rea'ult in a strong pLrniaitcrit organization
of American romen for Christian effort.
It is hoped that plants ill be perfected,
'u that the meeting for urganzation may
I.I held in Noveml-er at the time of the an-
nual vriitation of Bishop Stuntz, the Method-
I t bhishp in charge of the %eork in Central

First Lockage at Pacific End.
The first lockage at the Pacific end of ihe
Canal was effected on Tuesday. October 14,
when claper No. t, the tug Miheraflores with
three barges, and the steam launt.h Birdr"a.
were raised together through the we-i fltsht
of Miraflores Locks, from the Pacific entrance
channel to the surface of Miraflores Lake.
which was at elevation plus 36.82 feet at 8
a. m., on that date.
The lockage was made without hitch of any
kind, the gates, valves, controlling machines,
and motors operating with the precision that
has been obtained in the operations at Gatun
Locks. The passage of the vessels was begun
at 11.11 a. m.; the.' entered the lower level at
11.15 a. m.. were raised to the elevation of the
upper level at 12.15 p m., and passed beyond
the upper guard gates at 12.41 p m. The
entire operation consumed one hour and 30
The gates and machinery of the east flight
at Pedro Miguel Locks were in readiness to
effect the lift to Culebra Cut on the same
day, though it was impracticable to do so.
because of insufficient depth of water in the
Cut south of Cucaracha slide The tug.
clapet, and launch returned to Balboa. the
return lockage occupying 45 minutes in
time. When the water in the south end of
the Cut is sufficiently deep to allow the pas-
sage of the vessels to Cucaracha slide, pipe-
line suction dredge No. 8i %sill be brought
from its work at the Balboa terminal through
Miraflores Locksand be passed through the
single lift at Pedro Miguel Locks to Culebra
Cut. The barges now in the lake are loaded
with trusses and other materials to be used
in the removal of the portable span recently
installed in bridge No. 572 of the Panama
railroad, .across the Cut at Paraiso. when it
is desired to pass vessels through the bridge.

Water in Gatun Lake and Culebra Cut at Gam-

prras ricall,. a ceI ar opening 125 feet wide,

Oc-trber 1. aind b1 the illth. it had risen to
elevatir.n 61.7 fIet. or about -i:X feet below
the level of the I'ike The -hot was not a
large one, as compared with some of the
pre-viou. blasts in connection with the Canal
isork. but it dit d perfect execution.
In aco)rdlance with an arranzcmnent made
tw,) or thri:e da.s bi-forehand. the blast was
fired by Preildent \\ ondr.a \\il-.)n at Wash-
ington. This 'a- effected by using the
land tel-raph to Gjl. *;st,.n Te-xas, and
coinir-ting it there '.'.ith the Central and

The remainder of the dike, east of the
opening. will probably be dynamited about
October 17. It include* a hard rock sec-


tion where the end of the dike abuts on the
east side of the Canal. What is left of the
west end of the dike is composed of relatively
soft material, and will be removed by dredge
without an', more blasting.
Dredges No.86and No.5, which were passed
through Gatun Locks on October 9, have
begun operations near the 'dike. No. 86 is
assisting No. 82 in the work of cleaning the
channel north of the dike of material silted
in, and No. 5 is excavating'at the west end of

the dike. The material excavated by ladder
dredge No. 5 is being towed by the tug Bohio
and d umperl into an arm of the lake, north of
the old site of Mamei.
After the blowing up of Gamboa dike, the
southern end of the Canal, beyond Gold Hill,
was separated from the waters of the lake by
the foot of Cucaracha slide. Beginning October
6, forces of the Central Division had been
engaged in digging a trench through the top
of this barrier to allow the passage of the
water from the north side. Successive down-
ward movements of the slide, however, kept
closing the trench, and it was decided to blow
a gap in the barrier in the hope that the
water would rush through it. A ton and a
half of dynamite was placed in the toe, just
opposite Contractor's Hill and exploded at
4.15 p. m.,.October 10. The explosion threw
a great mass of earth and fock high into the
air, and stones were hurled as far as 1,500
feet on either side, but the clay of the
slide slumped back into place and closed the
break before any considerable amount of
water had passed through. Later blasts
produced similar results, and the effort to
clear the barrier in this manner was abandoned
on Saturday, October 11. Trenching with
pick and shovel was resumed that morn-
ing, and water began to pass through to
the south side of the slide at 3.43 in the
afternoon. During Saturday night, a move-
ment of the slide closed the trench. It
was opened again by 11 a. m., Sunday,
October 12 and has remained open since.

A forc-e of 200 men \ith .hovels has been
engaged in keeping. the trench clear, and,
with the assistance of the flon ing water, ma-
king it deeper and wider. By 4 p. m., Sunday,
pipe connections had been made with a water
tank on the south side of Contractor's Hill
and the work of the men with shovels was
augmented by sluicing with a 3-inch hose
along the lower side of the barrier. During
the forenoon of Monday, Octa..'er 13, a 2-

feet. separated by a small lagoon, about 300
feet across, enclosed bt-tw'een elevations of the

ding that date, a total of 297,&00 cubic yards
had been removed, not including 71,600 cu-
bic yard taken out from the banks of the

Later. thL. Unitined S'i-s sIouglnt to i-.ice Camer.n

because of the clauses therein which provided thai in
case the proper were taken for public use no com-
peniation a.,uld be made to him for his improvemenu-
The LiUnl States did not dispossess Cameron, but
suffered him to remain on the land. The refusal to
sign the lease, involved a refusal or neglect to pay to
the United States rent for the land occupied, and the.
Commission finds that Cameron is inilebted to the
United States for the arrears of rent upon the property
In making fts award, due allowance has been made tor
the fact of such indebtedness.
Certain parts of the improvements of Cameron were
destroyed by the operations of the Isthmian Canal
Commission and for this he was paid.

Crucea, One of the Oldest Settlements on the
Isthmus, Abandoned
The village of Cruces, situated on the south
bank of the Chagres River, a little aboce
Gamboa, will be abandoned. and the Division
of Police and Prisons has been in-trictcd to
destroy the buildings, when the t.. tri has' ben
depopulated. .Mu-t ul the buildings, whih
are built after the natic tr'y'le bamb..'o ntals,
with roofs of thatch, are- Lbelow the S7-loot

not including the church and schoolhouse,
but some of these were burned in the fire of
1912. The Canal Z.necensusof 1912 howed
169 people living there, consisting of 132
colored persons, 36 of mixed blood, and one
Cruces is one of the oldest erttlemerits on
the Isthmus, and in earlier times "as knonri
as Venta Cruz. One of the contemporary
books on the Canal and the Isthmus describes
its origin, as follows:

today, oand the entnr trail from Pan-ima Cii to
Cruces is open. and i, u l-d b tihe nativ,- a.: a
highway for pack males and pouiee. '
Dr. E. L. Auchenrieth in his book entitled
The Topography if the Isthnius, published in
1851, speaks of the paved trail, as follows.:
"It is stated that Fran,:i.:o Ptzarro. the cOn.
queroTof Peru. wa the one that ordered th.- pa irne
of the road. whichh was done with large. round
stone; ?ometrmei a fo.t and a half in diameter. '
A toll gate is said'to hak.e been -scr up at
Cruces in the latter half of the eighteenth
century, and all traffic between the two oceans
passed the place According to the report
madeby Bancroft on the fiscal regulations and
commercial decline of the Spanish colonies.
goods to the amount of 1,466.346 pesos de iro
were registered as passing through the Casa
at Cruces. while more than seven and one-
half millions were smuggled across.
"- In their march from Fort San Lorenzo, at
the mouth of the Chagres River, to attack
Old Panama, Henry Morgan and his men
ascended the river to Cruces Esqucmetnlm
speaks of it, as follows:
.. Thus they proceeded on their
journey ull noon. at which time they arrived at at
tillage called Cru This tlljg-

canoes can come, for hichl rea-on the, built

Messrs. So.a and Arce, local historians,
note that the Chagres River was first ex-
plored from its mouth to the interior, prob-
ably to about where Cruces now is, by Capt.
Hernando de la Serna, and the pilot Pablo
Corzo. between April 3 and 10, 1527.
Following the construction of the Panama

railroad. Cruces entered upon a period of de-
cadence, which hasexisted until this day. The
Canal Commission ha- never instituted any
change5 there beyond including it within the
Canal Zone school sn -tern. In May, 1906, ar-
rangements were made to open a school in
the old church, and the municipality of G,-r-
guna was authJrized tc:. e\pind $51.11) in im-
prov.ing the building. Thei church ,3as 25
feet wide by 63 f-eet Ion.-. .and it aa-_. euimrnated

the people were alloaied to use the building on-
Sunday. and feast das In 1910. the church
became unsafe, and on November 22 ,,f that
year a request wa: approved for a n,:'.. school
house, tiith a living room for lthe tea. her It

Pri,,r t[I 1911, the village had a hi-[trtie
curiosity, in tilt. hape of two v..rouht iron
anchurs. According to tradition, the-c an-
chors were brought up the Chagres River in
boat- for transport overland to Panama, but
the plan was abandoned at Cruces. One 01
these anchur-. sto)d in the villaei about 3iJiJ
bards from the river, and the uther alongside
the trail about 400 yards from the river.
Each anchor has a 14-foot shank. The ide,:
was conceived by Lieut. W\aler D. Smith
formerly Con-tructin: Quartermaster ol the
Canal Commission, to send these anchors to
West Point. The anchors ,were placed on a
raft, which subsequently broke loose froni its
moorings, and after floating down the river a
short distance, collided with a lu;, break ng
in two, and allowing the anchors to go to the
bottom of the srrtam. They were recovered
later, but before they could be placed on
board a vessel, a cable message was received
by the Chairman from the Secretary of War
disapproving ol the plan. The anchors are
now in the yard uof the general storehouse at
Mount Hope.
Cruces also posse' ses another relic in three
ancient church bells. These bells are of ary-
ing size, and Irom une ol them a piece has been
broken. The dates are indistinguishable, but
they are known to be very old. After the
transfer of the anchor,, the inhabitants, be-
coming apprehensie that the bells also would
be taken, had them removed and hidden.
Later, when the-eleari were dispelled, the:.,
were returned to their old place.

the cable has broken tv ice before in the same
place, once during'trhe severe shock of Septem-
ber 7, 1I52. The .plice. that wan. madeat that
time was broken on this occasion. The recent
shocks apparently disturbed the ocean bed in
the vicinity of the break, for a section of the
cable about half a mile long was found deeply
imbedded in a mass of hard clay, and was ex-
tricated with considerable difficulty.
