Empire District to Close September I.
The Governor has approved the recommen-
,.dation of the Chief Quartermaster that the
Empire district be closed on September 1,
or as soon thereafter as possible. The re-
moval of the offices of the Accounting De-
partment from Empire to the new Adminis.
tration Building on Balboa Heights, has
resulted in the transfer of most of the
.gold bachelor employes out of the dia-
trict.- There were 82 families occupying
regularly assigned quarters for gold em-
ployes at Empire on August 1, but of this
number, it is expected that about 60 families
will have been given permanent assignnmnt.r
in the Corozal and Ancon-Balboa districts
by September 1. The occupants of family
quarters remaining unassigned after that
date will be transferred temporarily to Cule-
bra. The transfer of these employes will per-
-mitiof the closing of the hotel. commissary,
and district quartermaster's office, and will
allow the Health Department to close the
offices of the district physician and the sani-
tary-inspector, and the police and fire division
towkihdraw its representatives.
The labor camp at Cunette, near Empire.
-,will-also be closed on September 1, and the
present occupants of houses there will be tem-
*porarily transferred to the camps-at C-erro,
Liriorand Rio Grande. There are-no colored
bachlor employes at present at the Cunerte
;..camp,.and but very few colored married em-
.Ployes. With the closing of the Empire
*district, the labor train to that point will be
disdirlatinoed, but it will probably continue
to-bA gperated to Culebra.until the removal
of te employes in .that district to the Pa-
rifir end, or elsewhere. has been effected

accommodations for all families of silver em-
ployes on the permanent force. The water

in Block A. will be performed at once, and if
funds are available, the streets will be macada-

six inches. The aiidth of the street is irregular,
but averagesabout 21 feet for the newly paved
-ection; it is widest between Ancon avenue
and Eighteenth street, 24 feet. The work per-
formed by the engineering force consisted in
the preparation of the subgrade, and the
spreading over it of a concrete- pavement six
inches thick. In addition, the grade of'the
street and car tracks were changed to con-
form to standard requirements, a new curb
was installed on the north side of the street,
parallel with Pinel Brothers'new property ad-
dition, and the turn into Twentieth street
was widened to facilitate the passage of vehi-
cles. B street is now entirely paved from
Central avenue to the old Balboa road.

mentsunder the rules at Culebra. This deci-
sion was reached in view of the fact that the
commissary and delivery services will have

cally the same manner as at present, although
they will serve a much Imaller population.

Sanirary Census of Panama and Colon.
The Governor has authorized the Chief
Health Officer to take a census of the cities
of Panama and Colon, the work to be done
under the supervision of the health officers
of the two cities. It was regarded asdesirable
to have the work performed by enumerators
Sho were employed at the time of taking the
Canal Zone census in 1912. but it was found
that most of the men had left the Isthmus,
therefore. the enumeration will be made by the
sanitary inspectors. The census of Panama
was begun on August 13 by the health ohicrr
and two of the inspectors The count in the
more thickly populateJI districts of Gu.11ch--
pali, Maranon. the barrio of CalidC.ri,, and
Chorrillo, will be completed first The cen-
sus is made at this time, in order to arrive at a
basis for future estimates in connection with
health statistics, and only quetcionos pertair-
ing to the population will be asked; these
comprise thenumberof pc rsons in a room. male
or female, and color. No separatee count will
be taken ofthechildren. Theccnsusat Colon
has not )et been begun, but it will lie carried
out along the same general lines. Lntil the
tabulation of the census return, fur thetwo
cities are completed, \%hit h aill probably be
a month or more, the Chief Health Officer has
been authorized to add 15.00U to thepresent
estimate of 47.172 as the population for
Panama city. or a totr.l -stinmaied population
of 62.172. The estimate for the rity of Culon,
20,312, nill be allowed to stand, as owing to
the decrease in Canal siork at the Atlantic
end. the cit) has not been growing as rapidly
as Panama. The recent police census of the
Canal Zone, which showed a population ol
37,702, will be ado[-ted as a basis for future
health statistics in that territory.

Canal Eicararion in July.
The grand total of Canal ex..i atiot, to Au-
gust 1, 1914, was 224.073,363 cubic yards.
leaving 14,772.224 cubic 3arJs remaining to
be excavarcd, according to the revised esti-
mate asof August 1.1014. which increased the
estimate of July 1. 1913 by 6,527.593 cubic
The total excavation in July was 964.994
cubic yards. as compared with 1,167,870
cubicyards in June. The output of the drrcdg-
esconsrituted all but a fraction of the amount
excavated, and little more than one-hall of
the total w as taken out in the Culebra Cut
section from slides. The dry excavation in
July was entirel, confined to terminal opera-
tions at Balboa, and amounted to 47,314
cubic yards.
Material excavated by dredges, apart from
the Culebra Cut section, consisted of 57.678
cubic yards removed at the Atlantic entrance,
35,24S cubic yards at the Cristobal coaling
plant site, 28,679 cubic yards from the Pacific
entrance, and 311,067 cubic yards taken out
of the Balboa terminal basin, and used for
the fill of the swamp bet een Corozal, Ancon.
and Balboa.
Hydraulic operations at Gold Hill resulted
in the removal of 53,374 cubic yards.
No concrete was placed in the locks, dams,

or spillways during July. and no additional
fill was made to dams.

Corozal Plant llas Produced over 100,000 per
Month for Nine Months.
The plant at Corozal for the manufacture
of hollow concrete blocks for use in the per-
manent Canal buildings completed its ninth
month of service on August 10. Operations
began thereon November 10, 1913, and have
been carried on continuously since, both day
and night shifts having been employed prac-
tically all the time. Lip to August 10 the plant
turned out a total of 902,303 blocks, an av-
erage of over 100,000 per month.
Now that the greater part of the erection
of the new buildings authorized at this time
has been accomplished, the demand for the
larger blocks, used principally in exterior walls,
has dropped off, and the principal present de-
mand is for three, four, and 6-inch blocks (all
12 inches wide by 12 inches long), for use in
interior columns and partitions.
Work on the smaller blocks is being carried
on to the capacity of the machines equipped
with molds of these sizes. The output of the
Pauley machines originally installed in the
plant is being supplemented by the use of four
hand operated machines for smaller blocks,
which use what is known as the dry process,
and were constructed for field use when the
building operations were in iull swing.
During the height of construction the new
Administration Building, the permanent quar-
ters, and the electric substations, the output
front the Corozal plant was not sufficient to
meet the demand, and additional equipment
for making similar hollow concrete blocks by
the dry process was installed on the to nsite
at Balboa in the form of eight portable mold-
ing machines. Two of these machines made
blocks three by 12 by 14 inches; two made
blocks three by 12 by 12 inches, and four
made blocks four by 12 by 12 inches. The
blocks made by the two machines first men-
tioned were for the columns in the new Ad-
ministration Building, this size is not being
used now. This field plant produced a total
of 30,000 blocks. In addition, terra cotta
blocks, three, four, and six inches thick, to.
the number of 100,000, were requisitioned
from the United States.
The field machines have since been trans-
ferred toCorozal to be operated in connection
with the Pauley process plant. They are
wooden structures, devised by concrete fore-
men and carpenters at Balboa, and each oc-
cupies a space about six feet long, four feet
high, and four feet deep. Each contains a
trough, with removable ends and partitions,
in which are set the molds for four blocks,
each three by 12 by 12 inches. The moistened
concrete material is poured into the molds from
above by hand, and tamped by means of a
mallet and a steel bar. Each machine is op-
erated by two laborers, the material being
mixed by another in an adjacent trough The
output isabout 150 blocks per machine in each
8-hour shift. Materialsare usedhirihthesame
proportions as for the wet process, namely,
three parts of cement, four and one-hall parts
of sand, and six parts of screenings. The
blocks turned out have been generally satis-
factory, though showing less uniioimity and
greater breakage than those manufactured by
the wet process.
Several improvements have been made in
the methods of operating at the plant, which
have made it possible to reduce the force of
laborers by about one-half. One is the sub-

stitution of a power driven tumbler or rattler
for hand labor in removing particles of con-
crete from the cast iron palettes, which,
inserted at the bottoms of the molds, form
the bases on which the blocks are handled
until they harden, when the palettes are
loosened by a hammer. Two laborers.oper.
ate the tumbler and do work for which 14
men were formerly required.
Another device which has given general sat-
isfaction is a washer for cleaning screenings.
The screenings are shoveled from the cars into
an inclined trough, about 10 feet long, at both
ends of which are powerful jets which throw
the screenings into motion. As they slide
down the flume they fall on inclined screens,
the particles of rock passing through into a
pile, while the finer particles of earth are car-
ried away by the water, through a discharge
flume. In addition to cleansing thescreenings
mechanically, and allowing a reduction of force
of 12 laborers, the washer has done away with
dust, which was formerly very objectionable.
Moreover, as the finer particles are carried
away and settle, a quantity of sand can be
skimmed off the top. This is used to a great
extent in place of Chame sand and effects con-
Eiderable saving in the cost of material.
Blocks are now shipped to the permanent
quarters at Balboa, the office building for
Balboa shops, and the substations at Cris-
tobal and Balboa The substations are still
using all sizes, but at the other points the-con-
sumption is almost entirely confined to the
smaller sizes. The distribution of the blocks
manufactured at the Corozal plant up to Au-
gust 10 is shown in the following tabulation:

Changes in United Fruit Company's Steamship
Sen ices.
The local office of the United Fruit Com-
pany makes the following announcements
concerning its services to and from Colon:
The regular service with New Orleans,
changed slightly during the past two months
by the temporary retirement of the steamship

.tenas for repairs, has been resumed in com-
pleteness; two vessels sail from Colon for
New Orleans every Thursday, one going direct,
and the other by way of. Bdca del Toro and
The direct service with New York by means.
of the steamships Calamwres, Pastores, and
Teaadores has been cancelled. The last sail-.
ing in this service was that of the Tenadores,
from Colon on Wednesday. August 19. The.
weekly connection with New York, by way-
of Kingston, will be maintained, as beforeby-
the steamships Almirante, Mafeapan, Santa.
Marta, and Zacapa.
There will be absolutely no increase in.
rates, passenger or freight, on account of the,
present European war.
The service of Elders and Fyffes, Limited,
represented on the Isthmus by the United
Fruit Company, between Colon, and Bristol,
England, will be suspended indefinitely, after
the sailing of the steamship Bayano from
Colon on Saturday, September 5.

The Lightbouse Service.
Panama railroad barge No. 2 has been
transferred to the Division of Canal Transpor-
tation, and after some alterations, will be
used in connection with the launch Balboa
as a lighthouse tender. The old Atlantic
Division motor car house at Gatun has been.
reerecred at one end of the concrete dock for
small boats on Gatun Lake, for use of the
master of the lighthouse tender as a store-
house and office. A preliminary survey of
Bona Island on the Pacific coast of the.Isth-
mus was made in July, with a view of es-z

tablishing- a fourth order light thereon. In
the Atlantic and Pacific sections of the Canal,
the 1-foot burners on the lightingbuoyshave
been changed to i-foot; in the lakeareathey
have been changed from one foot to three-
fourths of a foot, and the moorings of a part
of the buoys have been lengthened.

Award -for Plaieog Backfill.
Bids were opened at the office of the Chief
Quartermasteron August 10 for the placing of
42,000 cubic yards of backfill at Fort Amador,
and 16,825 cubic yards of backfill on Pericn
Island, the material to be obtained from the
Balboa dump in the vicinity of the new radio
station. Six proposals were received, as

personnel straightened out in the new building. More-
over, there is a consideramol quantity of records. office
furniture, etc.. that there won d be canluiaon lI the
whole forces were moved at once.
"1 would not recommend ihe removal of the Panama
railroad offices until the close' or the month. Firl. to
allow the personnel to get straightened out in the ne.a
building; second, to give us an opportunity to have
bachelor quarters available We ought to be able to
make some reduction m the building force by the ltrau
of October. and the vacancies thus created will take
care of the forces oi the Panasm railroad. Det ils of
the program of the moves atill bl submitted lIter.
"Instructions should be issued to the chief clerks or
heads of the offices that all files and records not needed
in the transaction ol current buinnes; should De pre-
pared for shipment and removal as quick is possible.
These records can becurned over to the distrActquarter-
master at any time between August 20 and 23. and
shipped between the 25th and 2Sth.
"Heads of each office should make up lists of the gold
marred and bachelor employes of their office. iurnih-
ing copies of this list to the d~.trict quartcrmasrera
at Ancon, Corozal. and Culebra. The-se lists should be

Leaves of Absence.
C'.T.EBaA. C. Z.. Augu.t 21. 1914.
S eeral ac.i- hje r-cently been brought to my at.
tention in nhilch employes have been granted leaves of
absence on recommendation of the head of a depart-
ment or division, and prior to ine expiration of such
leave it has been found necessary to terminate their
services on account of reduction m force.
From now on it is particiuarly derable that heads

of departments and divisions exercise extreme case in
recommending leaves of absence, and in any case where
there is a possibility of the employee's service being Ler.
minted within a short period he should be so informed,
and if he still desires to take the leave of absence it will
be upon his own responsibility.

Revised Estimate of Excasarion.
The revised estimate of excavation as of
July 1, 1914, brings the grand total estimate
of Canal excavation up to 238,845,587 cubic
yards, which is an increase of 64,178,903
cubic yards, as compared with the estimate
of December 1, 1908. The following table

factors have been removal of silt from the
Chagres section, excavation for the terminal
improvements at the Atlantic and Pacific en-
trances. includingcoaling plants, drydocksand
the inner harbor at Balboa. and silting in both
entrances, the latter properly chargeable to

Rules Governing Transfer of Employes from or
to the Isthmiin Service.

will govern employes transferred tr Th.. Paina-
ma Canal Service in the linited States, and

When an employee leaves the Isthmus to
work for The Panama Canal in the ULnited
States his service on the Isthmus u\ill be ter-
minated. He will be paid off and all obliga--
lions will be cancelled the same as though
he were leaving the service altogether. He
will be paid for any leave wrhii.h can be om-.
muted into cash. or he sill be given such an-
nual leave as may be due him The sjmn rukl
will apply to employes in the Linited "tate-
transferred to the Isthmus If the. havc
not used as much of their annual leave in the
United States as they might have done under
the rules, they will lorfpir the unused pan.
and their services will terminate on the date
they sail for the Isthmu. ,on which .Is~e a
new employment in the Ilihrmi.,n -er'vie ill
begin. When an empl.,yt -i -,nt to the
United States for temporary\ dut he will
be given a travel order setting lorth the con-
ditions of his employment in the United

States. and his service v.ill not be broken.
The same principle will apply to employes in
the I united States ltmporarily detailed to
duty on the Isthmus.
Isthmus No Place for Men SeekLng Work.
The Chief of Police ha- advised that many
of the laborers discharged at the plantations
of the United Fruit Company at Bocas del
Toro are arriving at Colon; that there are
now approximately 1.000 idle labIorers in that
city, and that this number. oiring rt the lack
of work at the dor):k and el-shere. is con-
stintly augmenting Repre-entations have
been made to the Panim3 (o\sernment to the
effect that the las re tricting immigration

Transisthmlan Duct Line Reaches Criitobal.
Excavation for the northern section of the
4-way transisthmian duct line for telephone
and telegraph and railway signal cables was
completed on Thursdy., August 210. This
section extends from Gamboa to Fourteenth
street. Cristobal, at a point near interlocking
tower A of the Panms railroad. On the
southern secricon. from Gambc-a to Balboa,
excavation of the trench ha- reached Mira-
diores tunnel dump. and the I.1 ,ing of duct is
in progress south of Pedro Mliguel.
The laying and con,.reting of duct in the
northern secti-on is in progress between Mount
Hope and Cristob-l. From a point opposite
the pumping plant of the iiaterworks at
Mount Hope, the line is to be of doubled
capacity, or S-way, to Fourteenth street,
where it connects with a 12-say line which
is the permanent trunk of distribution
through Cristobal and Colon. The existing
duct for the distribution s stem at the north-
ern terminal has been completed for about a
year, but authority was granted on August
21 for an additional line. 220 leet long, to
extend from the manhole beneath building
No. 2. Cristobal. to the new Pier 10, and for
a 3.200-foot line to extend from the Garfield
House. the present end of the line in the
Colon Beach district rn IhF Colon radio
A branch will be laid at Darien. and an
extension built at Balboa. for the radio
stations at those points The line at Darien,
branching directly off the main tranissthmian
line, will he about 300 feet long; a joint


duct line for all cables for the Balboa radio
station will extend beyond the Balboa town-
site about 3.000 feet.
The pulling of cables into the completed
portion of the duct has advanced from Gam-
boa to Mindi, in the northern section, ard
has not been begun in the southern section.
Two cables are at present being pulled in two
of the ducts; one is a duplex cable containing
50 pairs of wires, for the telegraph and tele-
phone service, and the other i,for the c-le:tric-
al control of the automatic signal s stem of
thePanama railroad. Both cables have been
spliced and tested to a point about sc-en
miles north of GambLa The two other
spaces of the 4-way duct are not to be occu-
pied at present. One of these has been re-
served for the Central and South American
Telegraph Company, for its cable service, and
the other for ifture requirements.

Code Adopted for Use in Operating Vessels In the
Canal and the Locks.
A signal code has been adopted in ton.
section with the operation of vessels through
the Canal, and approaches thereto, together
with instructions as to its use, as follows:
Vessels should hoist their designation signal
when approaching and entering the terminal
ports, and when passing Gamboa signal sta-
The signal stations at the terminal ports
and at Gamboa will be prepared to make and
answer signals by the International Code,
in addition, the station at Gamboa will be
equipped with shapes and lanterns for making
special signals by day and night.
The ends of the approach walls at each
lock will be fitted with a signal apparatus for
directing the movements of vessels in making
the approach.
All vessels in transit through the Canal
must abide by the orders conveyed b:, signals,
or otherwise; and any violation of these rul -s
will make the vessel liable for damages for
such violation.
Vessels should be ready in advance to make
or answer signals to the signal stations, or
answer those made from thelocks. The inter-
rogatory and answering pennant of the Inter-
national Code maybe used by vessel in con-
junction with the special signals in use at
the locks and Gamboa signal station.
All signals made by locks or signal stations,
be they special or otherwise, when understood,
shall be answered by hoisting the answering
pennant of the International Code.
During daylight, a vessel passing through
the Canal will fly its colors at all times, and
on coming in sight of the signal station at
Gamboa or a terminal port, will immediately
hoist its designation signal and keep it
flying until answered; in case no instructions
to the contrary be given, it will continue on
its course.
The following codewill be used at t he Gam-
lioa signal station, and at anyothers that ma:,
t e established later:
The shapes at signal stations nill be a
sphere and a cone, as illustrated herewith:

At night, a white lantern will replace the
sphere and a red lantern the cone.
Signals will be hoisted at yard arms, dur.
ing the day, a red cone at the masthhead uill
refer to vessels bound to the northward. frorn
Balboa to Colon, and a black sphere to e sserls
bound the other way; at night, a red light
at the masthead will refer to northliound
vessels, and a white light to southbound
Spheres and cones in the order namrit
One sphere-"Proceed."
Two spheres-"Proceed at half speed."
Three spheres-"Proceed cautiously, keep s:.r p lo-..kLou
for Canal craft, steamers, or obstructions
One cone-"Moor at this station."
Two cones-"Moor at next station, unless onher ,.-
Three cones-"Slow down or stop for communicatons
or orders."
Three conJs-"Wish to communicate, have orders or
message for you."

A scheme of signalling has also been
adi.-pted in connection with the passing of
vessels through the Cinal locks. A large red
arrow will be placed near each end of each
middle approach wall, which will be used in
giving the f,-llowing signals:
Arrow pointed vertically upward-"Not
rea-ly, keep away," meaning that lockage
cannot take place for several hours.
Arrow pointed upward at an angle of 45
degrees-"Keep aiay, but be ready to enter
on signal."
Arrow pointed downward at an angle of 45
degrees--"Moor against approach wall near
outer end "
Arrow in a horizontal position-"Enter."
In the last three signals, the head of the
arroik points toward the lock chamber to be
used. In addition to the arrow, the "Ans-
wering" and "Interrogatory" pennants of
the International Code will be used in con-
nection with ships' signals.

Despite this notice, and instructions given
all malarial patients on their discharge from
the hospital, the reporting to district physi-
cians has not been carried out sarisfactorily.
While great progress has been made in con-
trolling malaria on the Isthmus. so that the

general rate among employes is lower than
in any preceding year, it is now felt that not
much more progress can be made until all
carriers of the disease are brought under
Noncompliance with the instructions has
been almost entirely confined to silver em-
ployes. They have apparently either not
understood the instructions, or have not com-
prehended the importance of complying with
Award for Trench Eicavation,
Bids for the excavation of the trench for
the new water main between Gamboa and
Miraflores were opened at the office of the
Chief Quartermaster on August 10. Three
proposals were received, as follows: R. W.
Hebard. 77 cents per cubic yard for the earth
excavation, and $2.84 for the rock; C. J.

and $1.58 per cubic yard for the rock; A. B.
deObarrio, 60 cents per cubic yard for the
earth, and $1.60 per cubic yard for the rock.
On the combined bid for rock and earth ex-
cavation, A. B. deObarriowas the lowest, and
has been awarded the contract, making bond
in the sum of $12,000.
The contractors' forces have begun work
in the rock section, south of Gamboa. No
excavation for the trench will be permitted
in the sections where soft material predomi-
nates until the pipe laying gang is ready to
begin work. A quantity of the pipe has
been received and is being distributed.

Molor Car House near New Administration
Forces of the building division of the Sup-
ply Department are erecting a motorcar house
just east of the temporary station of the Pa-
nama railroad at Balboa, at the foot of the hill
on which the new Administration Building
stands. The foundation will be of concrete
and the superstructure will be of wood. It
will be 82 feet eight inches in greatest length
by 39 feet eight inches in greatest width, and
the central portion will be two stories in height.
It will be equipped with four tracks, connect-
ing with a spur from the main line of the rail-
road, and each track will run over a concrete
repair pit. Adjoining the main room will be
rooms for the storage of gasoline and oil: for
a small repair shop, equipped with a lathe, a
milling machine, a drill press, etc., and for
quarters for a hostler. On the second floor
will be family quarters for the machinist in
charge, who will also be a chauffeur for
emergency calls. These quarters will consist
of a living room, three bedrooms, kitchen,
and bath, and will have porches in front and
Excavation for the foundation was begun on
July 29. The foundation, floors, the four re-
pair pits, and most of the frame work have
been completed. The finishing work is in
progress and it is expected that the house
will be ready for use within a short time.

Grading Completed for a Distance of Seven Miles
-Track Lalang to Start ihl. Month.
Grading on the new railroad in the province
of Chiriqui has been completed for a distance
of about seven miles, four miles between the
port of Pedregal and the city of David, and
three miles on the La Concepci6n branch of
the road. This branch line. extending from
David to the village of La Concepci6n, a dis-
tance of about 18 miles, will be the first to be
About 25,000 Oregon pine creosoted ties
have been delivered to date; these cost, laid
down, about $1 each. The contractors, R.'
V. Hebard and Company. are preparing speci-
fications and conditions under which native
ties, delivere- at any point on the line, will
be purchased. It is anticipated that 25,000
native hardwood ties can be obtained locally.
The contractors are purchasing from The
Panama Canal all the old 70-pound rail
in good condition that can be spared, in
addition to a miscellaneous lot of other
equipment, including two small Porter loco-
motives, used in the construction of the
Canal locks. Most of this equipment is to
be used in the railroad construction work,
and a part of it, namely, a number of dump
and flat cars, and piledrivers is now under-
going repairs at the Balboa shops.
The force at present employed on the gra-
ding work consists of 25 gold, and 200 silver
employes, and is being gradually increased
with the expansion of operations. An office
building and storehouse have been erected,
and barracks are being built for the silver
employes, all of mhom will be housed and
furni-hed free medical attendan-ce A mess
will be maintained for the gold employes.
There will be no commissary; all supplies are
purchased from local dealers in David.
The most difficult piece of construction on
the David-Boquere line will be the descent
into the Boquete valley, through which
flows the Caldera River. This valley is a
deep gash in the mountains, and the descent
into it is very abrupt. When the wagon road
was built into the valley, it was constructed
on so steep a grade as two require two pairs of
oxen to pull an ordinary cartload of freight
up the incline. The contractors have planned
to excavate the track bed along the face of the
cliff getting to the floor of the valley on a 5-
per cent grade. The terminus of the Boquete
road will be on the south bank of the Caldera
River, near one end of the cable bridge that
furnishes a means of communication to the
Panamanian post-office at Lino, and the coffee
plantations of the Boquete highlands.
The European war has as yet placed no
difficulties in the way of continued construc-
tion of the Chiriqui road, and it will be
proceeded with along the lines originally
planned. Rail is being forwarded by each
steamer, and it is intended to start track
laying at the port of Pedregal in the latter
part of September. and lay a line to the site
of the first steel bridge at the Cristobal River,
a distance of eight miles. The contractors
calculate on being able to work 1,000 labor-.
era during the next dry season.

Dug Nearly 19.000.000 Cubic Yard. During its
Period of Service.
The seagoing suction dredge Culebra has
been retired from service. It has been moored
alongside the wharf at Paraiso. and forces of
the Dredging Division have covered the fun-
nel, removed the tools and portable equip-
ment and furniture, treated the machinery
S with preservatives, and otherwise completed
S its preparation for indefinite storage.
The retirement of the Culebra follows the
practical completion of the work it is best
suited to do, in the Pacific entrance and at the
lake level. Its sister ship. the Caribbean, now
at work in the Atlantic entrance, will be able,
3 it is thought, to handle the maintenance work
of removing silt, in both entrances. The re-
mainder of the heavy work in the Pacific
entrance will be done by lIdder, dipper, and
pipeline suction dredges. Construction work
in the Atlantic entrance was completed in
December. 1913. and sub-rquent %\ork has
been confined to the removal of ilt.
The Caiebra was built by the Manrland
Steel Company, and sailed front its yards at
Sparrows Point on October 9. 1907. for Bal-
boa, by way of the Strait of lMagellan. The
vessel arrived at Balboa on Deicember 28, andl
was placed in commission on January 21,
1908. It worked in the Pacific entrance chan-
nel and in the slips alongside the wharves at
the Pacific terminus until January 20, 1914,
when it was transferred to the Gatun Lake
level and put at work removing gravel washed
into the Canal channel near Gamboa by the
Chagres River. It was tranl'erred to the dry
Q dock at Mount Hope for overhauling -arly in
June. and on June 14. was rEturnrd to Balboa,
where it was engaged alongside the -teel pier
and in the entrance channel until the time of
its retirement. Following is a summary of
its output up to July 1. 1914, by ihsc:al years.:

Customs Inspection at Cristobal Docks.
In order to maintain a closer supervision
over the movements of individuals at the
Cristobal docks, antl to prevent the unamthor-
ized introduction of parcels and- packages, it
has been decided to is-ue annual customs pas-
nes to those who have o, casion to use the -mall
boat landing between Dork c arId Pier 9 regu-
larly. One-trip permits may be issued by
those in authority to men in the military and
naval service ,o the United States who mat'
desire to bring in parcels and pai k.ges; all
others will be required to submit their prop.
erty to inspection before they will be allowed

to leave the dock enclosure. It has been cus-
tomary in the past to land laborers employed
in the fortification work on Toro Point at
these docks. This practice has been dis-on-
tinued, and, hereafter, the employ.-s vill be
landed at Dock 13 on the French canal, ahich
will be nearer to the camp where must of
them live. The employment of a customs
inspector, whose duty it will be to see that
the above regulations are carried out, has
been authorized.

Effects of the European War on the Prices of Com-
The effect of the war in Europe has begun
to be felt orf the commissary prices. Meat is
the first item to be seriously affected. This
is due to the fact that the beef contract
is based on a sliding scale, which varies ac-
cording to the wholesale prices in the Chicago
market. Prices on beef and other meats
have materially advanced within the pas; 30
days. The commissary is protected by its
contract on groceries and canned goods up to
September30. The new contract will become
effective October 1. and it is probable that
there will be some advance in the prices on
certain commodities.
Flour has advanced in price but not ma-
terially. The price of rice is advancing
rapidly. Sugar has advanced in price more
than any other commodity. Granulated
sugar is selling at retail in Chicago for 10
to 12 cents per pound at the present time.
The supply of glassware and china from
Europe will be shut off, and there will be
some difficulty in obtaining shipments from
England. The commissary has on hand a
large supply of glassware, and a fair supply
of ordinary kitchen and table ware. Arrange-
ments are being made to replace the alu-
minum cooking utensils, formerly purchased
abroad, with stock from the United States.
There is a good stock on hand of woolens
and linens, and about two months' supply of
boots and shoes. Prices on these are rising
rapidly in the United States, and it is antici-
pated that on new purchases there will be an
advance in price.
The supply of cheap hosiery, formerly pur-
chased in Germany, has been entirely cut off.
No particular advance in the prices of cigars
thd tobacco is anticipated. There willprob-
"Mbly be difficulty in obtaining English tobac-
''tj .nd cigarettes, and they will be replaced
by tloseof domestic manufacture.
Shiptlnits fritm Germany are entirely sus-
pended, and, owing to the difficulty in ne-

gotiating New York drafts in London, the
English shippers are refuI ing to make d:-liver-
ies. Efforts are, however, being made to over-
come this difficulty.
General Oterhauling for the"Vulcaon."
The rock breaker I'.lan was removed froni
the dry dock at Mount Hope inlthe mnirnmng
of Wednesday. September 2, after unih-rg'.-ing
a general overhauling. The principal repair
uork was strengthening the well in the center
of the hull, through which the ram ik droppeil
for breaking rotk. The angle bars sahich
formed the original reinforccirient of thle %-ell
were supplanted by\ stecl ch-armnn.l. \\hile-
this work was in pro.rc 'r the lhoob: rivets in
the hull were renc-ed, rhe wooden hearingg
strips on the bottom aere replaced. three
bottom and sides of the hull were repaintedl.
the boiler was retubed, and minor ri pair
were made to pipes and machinery.
This is the first time the 1',l.an has beIen
on the ways for general repair in,.e it waa
placed in service five ,'-ears ago. It was
shipped, knocked doan. from the Lohnirz
yanis in Scotland. and directed at the marine
shops at Balboa.
Steamihip Company Increases Passenger Rates.
The Royal NMail Ste:.m Pack.:t Comp:nv,
has issued a notice that, oiing to the in-
creased cost of operating its hlips, on a,:,:ounr
of the European war, rates to Trinidad,
Barbados, and the northern isl.n]ds have been
increased 25 per cent for all class-s of p.s--n-
gers. The old ratis to New York and Kines-
ton. Jamaica. and the special rcpatriaiionn
rate for deck passitners from Cohln to R..r-
bados granted to Panama Canal employees
remain unaltered.
Portable Gang Plank at Gatun Lo[ks
A portable gang plank \\ill be installed on
the center wall at Gatun Locks ror the pur-
pose of facilitating the disc-mbarkation tf lthe
pilot, the special Canal passage crew for
handling lines in the lock.' and othIer. froni
a vessel on the down lo:kage. The gang
plank can be run out while the water is
equalizing thereby affording, without clelai
in the lockage. an opportunity for those on
board to go ashore. The pilot v.ill be abli-e i
handle his v-ssel from the lo:k wall \heii it
is leasing the locks, as the water will be at
low level, and 30 minni:ir. or more, in irnme
%sill be saved in gctling r'a,!t, for the rn,:xt
lockage, by having the pilot already. on the
Many vessels passing through the Canal
do not have sufficient men to handle the lines
in the locks properly. For the-s- vessels it is
required that they take on additional men at
the entering terminal port. whic-h crew is dic-
charged at the oir.uc ernd.
For ships going directly to sea, ur which do
not dock at the second port,it is necessary to
provide some form of transportation from

ship to s-hori-, and it must be larger than an
ordinary pilot launch.
The gang plank %ill allow thi- crew to dis-
embark at Gatun, thus avoiding the water
tranfFi.prtation. The same considerations ap-
pl. in the case of passengers whoJ may have
obtained permission to pass through the Ca-
nal. the main items of interest lying, of course,
between, and at the Atlantic and Pacific locks.

Special Ancon-Balboj Street Car Service.
In vie\i of an increasing demand for a later
street c'r service between Ani-in and Balboa
,t night than wa.- formerly furnished, the
Panama Tramriay.- Ciompany, on Monday,
STep. number 7, began the operation of a special
service-, f(ll..wing the completion of the regu-
lar schd:iulci fur the day. As this arrange-
ment ratess an added expense to the tram-
.ays company, it has been granted authority
b, the Governor ol the Panama Canal to in-
rease the fare t ollected from passengers car-
ci. onri the cars operated on this special
- helule within the Canal Zone from five to
10i:enis per peron, n. making the fare from the

is kno..n. to the end of the line at Balboa.

Ancon to Churrillo, 10 cenrs, or doublee the
day rate Ir.,m An-'on to Balboa. For the:
present, only one car siill be operated in this
service, m king three round trips between the
termini of the line at Balboa and Anton.
The car does not run to the station in the
Anion ,Hospiral grounds, for the reason that it
is not considered t- fe to crnss the railroad
track in the Tivol district at that timeof the
night, but, instead, will stop at the road cross-
ing to rhe Hotel Tivlhc It takes a car about
411 rminutei to make tchi ruondl trip, and on this

formed at Corozal, with Mlrs. J. H. Hlacken-
berg as guardian. There are about 12mem-

claim of Pablo Surita for property lcialed at Lar P.,lmas
in Trinidad talley-Pablo Surita was a rpossessor in
good faith of a portnin of the public linda of the Re-

Subsequent to the payment for these improvements.
Surita went further away and started a ne;v cultiv.I

later on was covered bl the waters of Garun Like.

We are unable to agree with the very learned and
able opinion, filed by our colleagues on this claim as
to certsai matters of fact found by them and as to the
law in force in the territory in whicl this second culti-
vation of Sarita was located at the time Srnta made
the second improvement. We. however. concur in the
conclusion reached by our colleagues, that there is no
liability on the part of the United States on thi, claim
and file this. our specially concurring opinion.
We hold that at the time claimant made hi? second
cultivation, on which he bases this claim. the lands
occupied by him were United States territory and were
not subjec. to settlement; and that head no right to
make his second ;mprorement: and that tls occupancy
of the lands covered by the second improvement was
an unauthorized, poit Treaty occupancy ofraid linds;
and that. therefore, no liability on the part of the
United States accrued; and that he is not entitled to
any award against the United States: and. with our
colleagues, we agree that his claim should be and ij
accordingly dismissed.

Mooring Berth for Ships at Gamboa.
Test piles are being driven a short distance
out from the bank of the Canal, opposite the
Gamboa railroad station, preliminary to the
placing of a number of pile dolphins, to which
vessels passing through the Canal may moor.
It was originally contemplated to construct a
concrete mooring wharf at this point, the
estimated cost of which, as determined by a
board appointed for the purpose, wis S93.,.50.
In addition, it was found that a certain
amount of dredging would have to be done to
carry out this project, which increased the
total estimate to $123,850. In view of the
esxcsive cost of the wharf structure, andin-
asmuch as dolphins will serve almost equally
as good a purpose, the latter were adopted.
The plan calls for the driving of a row of
piles, in two sets, each .set extending a dis-
tance of 300 feet along the bank of the Cajial.
Between the two sets of dolphins, there will
be an open space 300 feet long,in the center of
whih a mooring buoy will be established.
Mooring buoys will also be placed, one at a
distance of about 150 feet from the outer end
of each set of dolphins. The dolphins "ill
serve to prevent ships that are obliged to tie
up at this point from grounding on the side
of Canal %when moored to the buoys. In rear
of the dolphins, a row of deadmen will be
established for additional fast-s for the ships'
lines. Under the new plan, no dredging will
be required, as the dolphins will be located
in 30 feet of water, which will breast the
ships out to a depth at keel of between35 and
40 feet.
The main purpose of having ships passing
through the Canal moor at this point is to
save time. In case a vessel, upon arrivingat
Gamboa. finds that another ship is passing
through the Culebra Cut section, it will be
necessary for it to tie ip until the Cut is clear
Without the mooring facilities, and in case,
a ship is already in the Cut, another vessel
proceeding to Balboa, having passed Gatun
Locks, would have to anchor in Gatun Lake

until advised that the first ship had passed
out of the Cut. The mooring facilities offered
at Gamboa will allow a vessel to continue on
its voyage as far as that point, thereby saving
two hours, or more, of time.
The End of the "Badger."
The old French ladder dredge Badger has
been condemned on account of a defective
hull. It is being stripped of serviceable equip-
ment at the Cristobal dry dock, and the
Resident Engineer of the Dredging Division
has requested authority to-use the hull for a
boat landing at Balboa.
The Badger was built in Belgium in 1886,
and was operated in the Pacific entrance chan-
nel by the second French canal company, and
afterward beached. It was recovered by the
Americans and rebuilt at the Balboa shipways
in 1908, at a cost of $58,624.50. It has been
operated in the Pacific entrance almost con-
:iniouus!y since that time, with the exception
of about four months of work in Culebra Cut.
Its sister dredge, the Marmot, which has had
a similar history, is still at work in the Cut.
The hull of the Badger is of iron, and is 112
feet two inches long, 29 feet six inches in the
beam, and 11 feet six inches deep. The ladder
was equipped with 32 buckets of 15 cubic feet
capacity, and capable of digging to a depth
of 45 feet below the surface of the water.
In its rebuilt form, the dredge burned fuel oil,
under three Scotch marine boilers, 96 inches
in diameter by 103 inches long. The main
engines were two in number, of French make,
vertical tandem compound, with 12, ',.
and 14i-inch stroke.
Change in Service at Cristobal Hotel.
As an experiment, it has been decided to
discontinue the serving of regular meals at
The Panama Canal hotel in Cristobal, and
substitute therefore a a la carte service. The
change will be placed in effect as soon as
the serving counters, which are being installed
at one end of the hotel, have been completed,
probably about the first of the coming week.
In general, the new service will be conducted
along the following lines: Patrons of the hotel
will procure their food by entering a railed en-
closure surrounding the serving counters, and
making request for the dishes they want. The
names of the articles on the bill of fare for
that particular meal, together with prices, will
be prominently posted. After having been
served, they will be given a check for the
amount due, which, in passing out of the en-
closure with their food, they will tender along
with their meal book, or commissary coupon
book, to the cashier. This transaction com-
pleted, they may seat themselves at the neigh-
boring tables, and proceed with their meal.
The above plan, with minor modifications, is
the same as that adopted at many restaurants
and eating houses in the United States.
Heretofore, at most Canal hotels, it has been
the custom to provide linen covers for some of
the tables, and oilcloth covers for the rest,

with the restriction that people eating at
tables furnished with linen covers must wear
their coats. Under the new plan at the
Cristobal hotel, persons wishing to eat at the
tables with linen covers will be charged a
small sum extra.
Articles on the bill of fare will be sold at
very reasonable rates, as for example: Soup,
three cents a plate; coffee, three cents a cup;
ice cream, four cents a dish, and other dishes
in proportion. A special effort will be made to
vary the menu as much as possible from day
to day. It is not believed that the newarrange-
ment will increase the cost of an e mply e's eat-
ing; on the other hand, he wull h.ive the privi-
lege of selecting the dishes he likes best, and
paying only for what he gets. Many employes,
who have been on the Isthmus for a consider-
able period of time, have adopted a lighter
diet; many do not care for more than their
coffee or chocolate and bread and fruit in the
morning; still others prefer more vegetables
and less meat, while some are heavy meat eat-
ers. The new service is designed to satisfy,
as far as p.ir-isle individual preferences; it
will be tried out under the direction of Maj.
W. R. Grove, Inspector for the Supply De-
partment, and if the plan proves satisfactory,
it will probably be introduced at other Canal
Panama City Stables.
An arrangement has been concluded be-
tween The Panama Canal and Panama Gov-
ernment authorities whereby stables already
in use in the city of Panama will not, for the
present, be required to remove to other sites,
provided they comply strictly with all sani-
tary rules and regulations. No new stables,
however, shall be constructed or placed in
operation, without first procuring a permit
from the Health Department, such permit
to designate the area within which they are
to be located.
Discharged for Disregarding Regulations against
The Governor has ordered the discharge of
four employes of the Panama railroad at
Gatun, and one employee of the Division of
Operation and Maintenance at Pedro Migucl
Lock, for failure to comply with the sanitary
regulations. The specific cause of their dis-
charge was their failure to report to the dis-
trict physician after being treated in the hos-
pital for malaria, according to notices posted
over the Canal Zone and verbal instructions
given them at the time of their discharge from
the hospital.
The Health Department points out that its
efforts to free the Isthmus from malaria are
offset greatly by such neglect as these em-
ployes were guilty of, and that as a matter of
fact and record the menace to life and health
of residents of the Isthmus is greater from
malaria than from the more generally dreaded
diseases, such as typhus and yellow fever,
and plague. It is only by prolonged treat-

Estimate of 61.090. Based on Recent Sanitary
Census. Adopted as Offiial.
The compilation of the reports of the enu-
merators empl.:,-ed by the Health Depart-
ment to take a cen us of the city of Panama
shows a count of 56,106 persons, not inclu-
ding thearca beyond the bull ring, in the Sa-
banas district. In \iew of the fact that the
ctrnius, aiming at a fairly accurate approii-
mation,was taken quickly, and no return calls
here maide for the enumeration of occupants
of room vacant at the time of visiting; that
heads of families frequently gave answers
wvhi:h seetmel to be wrong, in the belief that
the census ka-r for the purpose of imposing
rnc' tax.-, andl frequently omitted the num-
Lbr of their children entirely: and that the Sa-
banaj district beyond the bull ring i. believed
to cont-ain between 1,700 and 1,800 people
\hLu would not be enumerated on account of
the e:.e.:-r-se, the Health Office: of Panama is
o! the opinion that about 5,000 might be
ailed to the enumerated total. The official
figures for the population of the city of
P.nama. as of September I, have, according-
ly, been -et at 60,000. The estimate which

enumerators, natives of the country.
A census of the city, taken by the Govern-

The inm.-rci.: in three .,ears may be esti-

As Lu'twc _'n males and females, the numbers
were 19,375 males and 18,130 females. The
census of the Canal Zone taken between Febru-
ary I and March 31, 1912, enumerated the
number of employes of the United States
Government. and Canal contractors, living
in the city of Panama. They amounted then
to 3.7'9, and their number has increased since
by approxiimately 9,000. The first sanitary
census of the city of Panama was taken in
1904, at which time the enumeration showed a
population of a little over 20,000.

Vol. VIII, No. 4.


P. R.. forces Rebuildinr Government' Route
to Emirre-Reconsiruc lion ol Entire System.
The work of rebuilding the Panama Govern-
ment's telegraph and telephone line between
Panama and Empire, uhich is a part of its
interior system of communi.-ation extending
to David in the province of Chiriqui, is being
performed b) the forces of the telegraph
and telephone department of the Panama
railroad, the Government to reimburse the
railroad company for the cust.
The \ires, consisting of two pairs ol No. 6
copper, designed for the toll line circuits be-
tween Panama and David, and three pairs
of No. 10 copper, to be used for the telegraph
service and intermediate local telephone bus-
iness, will be carried out of Panama city
in a 15-pair, No. 13 gage. paper-covered
lead cable. This cable uill leave the central
office in the Government po.t-nficie building,
corner of Fourth street and North avenue.
and follow the beach on polel. converted from
iron rail, to a point in the district of Trjilllo,
crossing the old American wh.,rf structure',
the Panama Tramways Compan, car barn,
and other buildings on high standards From
Trujillo, the routet- extcnd.s along Tutcllth oi
October street, which Icjds directly to Cal;do-
nia; there it cro-ses over the street car com-
pany's trolley line at the foot of Calidonia
bridge, and continues to the picket fence en-
closing the Panama railroad's right-ol-wav.
The cable route parallels the railroad right-
of-way to a point a short distant. e beyond the
Tivoli station where labor trains stop. Here
the route changes to bare copper wire. ihe
pole line following the old Panama railroad
main line track between Corozal and Pana.
ma as far as El Diablo, where it leaves the
railroad, passes over a hill and back of the
town of Corozal, thence in as direct a route
as possible over the old lirafl',rcs lump to
a point about 1.500 feet from the southern
entrance to liraflores tunnel. At this point,
thewires ill be carried into a 15-pair, No. 13
gage, paper-covered lead cable through a duct
in the Nliraflores-Pedro Miguel duct line to
Pedro Miguel Lock, and from there through
the cable tunnel beneath the upper lock
chamber to the v.est aide of the Canal. Here
the bare copper Aires iill bebin again, the
pole line continuing to Empire, %here it
connects with the route to Chorrera and other
points in the interior
The poles to be used in the rebuilding of the
section of line be-t\en Pn.ima city limits
and Empire are new; the arc of iron, hollow,
eight meters (about 20 fcet.i in length, equipped
with two iron cross-arms with uhite porce-
lain ir.nulator, and \were purchased in Ger-
many. Between the central office and city
limits old iron rail has been used for poles
Along the beach these pules have been set in
concrete, and, in addition, they have been
armored with the same material fur a height
of two feet above maximum tide level to
protect them (rum passing vehicles, as Sell
as to prevent the corrosive action ol seawater.
The pole line has been completed out of
Panama to a point north of Corozal, but no
cable or wire have been .t rung to date.
The Panama Government is arranging to
rebuild the greater part of its interior tele-
graph and telephone lines, and in pursuance
of this plan, will string to pairs of No. 6
copper wire all the way to Daid for toll
line business. Between Empire and Agua-
duke, there will be a new 6-meter pole line,

equipped with three No. 10 copper circuits,
in addition to the toll lines. From Aguadulce
to Divia., there will be a new S-meter pole
line, equipped with 10 No. 10 copper wires.
from Divisa to Santiago, there will be four No
10 copper wires, and from Santiago to David,
a 6-meter pole line, equipped with three No.
10 copper wires, the various sections above-
mentioned consittituting the main Panama-
David line The No. 10 circuits are designed
to handle all of the intermediate telegraph
and telephone business. A branch line,
equipped with four No. 10 copper wires, will
be built from Divisa to the towns of Santa
Maria. Parit.a, Chitrr, Los Santos, and Las
Tablas. From Santi.igo, through Atalaya,
Oci, Pes', to Chitre, the existing single iron
nire will be replaced by a No. 10 copper
metallic circuit. It is furtherplanned to con-
struct a new line, equipped with two No. 10
copper circuits, from David to Boquete.
To date, e:ght wires have b:en strung on
the reconstructed line from Empire to Ch:ame,
and a construction force is now working
toward San Carlos. New exchanges are to be
installed at David, Chitr-, and at Lino in the
B.,ruete region. The exchange at David will
probably be housed in a new building, shich
will al-' Iurni-h officee room [or the telegraph,
telephone, and postal services. At Clirr.- and
Aguadulce. apppiratus will be installed for the
re.'harging of batteries. The Panama Govern-
ment will continue the use of the magneto
system of telephone equipment in its new
central office in-tallations.
The following data relative to the tele-
graph and telephone branch of the Panama
Government were compiled by the inspector-
general in charge, in January of this year:
At that time there were 23 telegraph offices
in the Republic. Very telegraph office is
consi.idere a telephone office, as the telegraph
lines serve as te-lephnne lines for short dis-
tantles. There was a total of 40 telephone
ottice- not including the 23 combination offices,
There were about 4S5 miles of telegraph pole
line-, and about 715 mikl of wire. There was
about 300 miles of telephone wire serving
the 23 telegraph stations mentioned above.
\\hen the work of rebuilding the old lines,
and m.,king extension, and alterations to the
present system, is completed there sill be a
toial fu 2 730 mile of copper sire in service.
Dumping of Rock on Last Breakwater Begun.
The diimnping of rock on the east break-
water ii Limon Bay was begun on Tuesday,
September 15. The roi k is excavated at the
Sosa Hill quarry and shipped across the
lIthmus in trains of 42 Lidgerwood flat cars.
Tso steamshovels are engaged in the excava-
tion at present, and five trainloadsare shipped
each da6.
Eji h train is draun by a locomotive of the
OO clJss, but a booster engine is used on load-
ed tr.,in-, between Pedro Miguel and New
Cul..br.i, past the summit of the continental
divide at La Pita; the rise in this 5-mile
di'rance is about 175 feet. The returning
train of empties till be handled all the way
h\ a single locomotive Balboa will be the
basis ol transportation operations, and a train
will ordinarily make the trip to Coco Solo
and back in the -ame lay.
Locomotives uill begin the day's work at
Balboa fully cooled; in some instances the
amount which the 60u-class engines carry
%till be sufficient for the trip over and back,
but arrangements have been made for an aux-

iliary supply at Coco Solo. A 24-tonbin, with
chute, has been erected near the pile yard
out of material reclaimed from the larger
chute used for the Toro Point breakwater.
A watering tank and turning wye have been
part of the Coco Solo yard equipment for
some time. The machine shop there can
make minor repairs, and the shops at the
Cristobal dry dock are within easy access.
Dumping began at bent No. 358 of the
trestle, approximately 5,925 feet from the
shore. Full train lengths are being dumped
by means of a Lidgerwood unloader and plow
brought from Toro Point. The sounding
bridge used on the Toro Point construction
has been placed in service for taking measure-

September 16, 1914. THE CANAL RECORD


Handling the Traffic In the Busy Counoaucdon
Days-Standard Practices now in Effect
la solving the operating problems of the
Panama railroad, the standard signal practi-
ses in the United States were closely followed.
although local conditions were so peculiar that
many original details were incorporated into
hde general scheme of protection, in order to
obtain the desired results.
When the old main line was in service, prior
to February 15, 1912, the heaviest main line
traffic was carried over double track. Trains
were operated anti spaced by manual block
signals. This plan of handling traffic was
necessary at that time, because the chief train
dispatcher would not have been able to issue
the"Running orders" for so manyextra trains,
and the flexibility of the caution aspect on the
manual block signal, in addition to a rigid
enforcement of the yard limit rule, allowed
trains to follow each other at a less distance
than could be successfully accomplished by
automatic block signals. When the old main
line between Gatun and Gorgona was aban-
doned and traffic partially shifted to the sin-
gle track on the relocated line, conditions
changed, and the factor of safety had to be
given immediate consideration. resulting in
the following program:
First-A scheme of signal aspects as simple
as possible, but sufficientl flexible to care for
present and future traffic.
Second-Thepreparation of a book of signal
instructions covering such aspects, and later.
the revision and rearrangement of the Book
of Rules which included these instructions.
Third-The examination of all transporta-
tion men un the rules, and their instruction as
to the use of signals.
Fourth-The protection of congested points
by interlocking plants, or other mechanical
signals; also, the protection of the main track
on descending grades by derails located in
sidings and operated from the switchstands.
Fifth-The installation of automatic block
signals as la-t as permanent track and reduced
traffic conditions would permit.
Delays of various kinds, howecr, made it
impossible to entire (fulfill the fourth and
fifth requirements above mentioned. The sig-
nal instructions were is-ued to the transporta-
tion forces early in 1912, and a description of
these aspects appeared in TBE CANAL RECORD
of November 13. 1912. The revised Book
of Rules was distributed in December of the
same year. Examinations were held at various
points on the Isthmus in a baggage car assigned
to that service. A committee, representing
both the Isthmian Canal Commission and the
Panama railroad, was appointed to conduct
these examinations, and to explain the new
scheme of signaling. It required approxi-
mately four months to examine and instruct
the 450 transportation men. These were
taken in classes of 10 or 12, and the average
time required per clas.- was eight hours. The
committee's aim was to demonstrate the
relation between definitions, rules, and train
orders, but the real test consisted in writing
38 typical train orders on a blackboard; in
this manner, 51 vital points were brought out
through questions and discussions.
The protective devices now in use on the
Panama railroad consist of interlocking plants,
station signals, switch signals, pipe-connected
derails, and automatic block signals. During
the past two years, the disc signal aspect has

been eliminated, and all existing semaphore
arms were changed to operate in the upper
right handquadrant During the same period,
23 interlocking plants, with 365 active levers.
66 station signals, IS switch signal;, 26 pipe-
connected derails. two staff machines, and
122 automatic-. or other power operated signals
were installed. Many of these have been
changed or rebuilt to keep step wit h the chan-
ging conditions, and within the pa t few
months, some 'innecesrsry apparatus has
been removed
At old Tower R, the train m.-vement it une
time averaged one train for each one and
two-thirds minutes. This a\era:,e ior nine
hours is one, it i= believed, ctht hast ben rarely
exceeded in the bu.iin:- terminal; in the Unt-
ted States. Cir, umrtances male the in'talla-
tion of a mechanical interlockng machine, n-.c-
essary. and the time el,-ment wasi sI valuable
that derail had to be left out iof the comibinii-
tions, in order to isae the fLw sriond- i..I time
required to handle the adiltiona.l levr. In

In March, 1913, when the hea,, dirt
train traffic was shifted Irom tih Canal tra.:k;
on the lower level to the Panama railr.oed
main line and passed tthroul, the Miralllires
tunnel, it was nece;;ary to inc.,_rpur,rti: a
better system oi protection through this can-
gested territory. An ab'olutle statT :-'tem wi,

cabin an'] South cabin interlohked. rhis ap-
paratu;. was described in THE CkN\L RCORD
of January 11, 1913. In the above arrange-
ment it was also necessary to omit derails on
two of the tracks leading into the tunnel for
the simple reason that the tim- required to
handle even two additional mechanical levers
was o valuable that it had to be con-idered.J
During the existence of theheavy traffti, it was
no uncommon occurrence to pa4s 231) trains
through the tunnel between 6 a. ni. and to p.
m., and the daily average was over 201 trains.
With the maximum traffi:, ai enumerated
above, the capacity of the tunnel and the
staff system was taxed to the limit The
staff system controlled this rerritor for
over 13 months without an accident, but on
account ol a recent reduction in the number
of trains, it was supe-rseded b, auitom.mitit ig-
nal protection, covering the gauntlet track
installed through the tunnel a shor time ago.
The automatic scheme now in ude ar the
tunnel is so designed that ihe automatic
signals stand normally in their "Sl p" pj;i-
tion. A train appr...achin, with the current
of traffic from either end enter- a clearing
section 1,500 feet in advance of the sig-
nal. If all conflicting entrance pAints and
the gauntlet are unoccupl:-d, the signal will
change to "Proceed," and allon the train
to pass on through the tunnel f1 not, the
signal arm will remain in the horizontal
position. Movements against the current
of traffic are controlled in the same manner.

except the clearing sections are only 150 feet
long, requiring the train to come to a full
icup before entering the tunnel. The first
train cnterinc a clearing section will re-
ceive a "Proceed' a'pert regardless of right,
class, or direction This change represented
another compromie on the -id.e of economy.

The protection offered by the interlocking
plant is confined to a restricted territory,
such as a railroad crossing. a junction, end of
double track, etc. On the Panama railroad,
all plants are mechanical. The locking and
machines are built in the held, and all material
is in accordance with thelatestsignal practice.
The cabin contains the machine the levers
of which correspond to the outside func-
tions, and they are so interconnected that
all levers must be manipulated in a pre-
determined sequence. This arrangement
gives the signalman complete control cer
all switches, derails, and signals con.
nected to his machine. The connection-

ging from four-tenths of a mile to 2.65
miles, according to grade, traffic, and other
The continuous track circuit is the funda-
mental factor of their automatic operation.
Battery at approximately 1-volt pressure
is fed to one main track rail; the current passes
up this rail, through a 4-ohm track relay, and
returns on the other rail to the battery. This
current, in passing through the relay coils,
energizes them and picks up the armature on
the relay; this, in turn, relays a local current
of about 10 volts that operates the signal
motor, energizes its slut arm, and holds the sig-
nal in its' Proceed position.
When a train enters the track section, its
a heels and axles form a path of much less elec-
tric resistance than the relay, so the current
takes that path and the relay coils being thus
deprived .1f energy, cease to attract thearma-
ature which ..penI- by _travity. The local
circuit is then interrupted, the sl.,t arm dis-
engages. and the signal arm itself falls to its
tup position by gra'. itn. The act of throw-
ing a main track switch for a turnout places
the same relative c.unditibns in erfect Tlhe
'aitch point mechanically operates a sw itch
box that short circuits the rails in the same
manner as the ahee.ls and \lc'. indr.-l the

details never before encountered, although,
in g. ncral, the best signal practice followed
by railroad systems in the Lnited States
ha. been obser;td. The maintenance of
autocratic signals on the Isthmus, huoever.
requires considerable mure work and a much

more rigid inspection than in the United States.
This is due to the deterioration of battery.
the corroding effects of the climate on con-
tacts, the tendency of finished iron parts to
rust, and occasional injuries of various kinds
received from outside agencies.
The automatic signals between Colon and
Mirafiores average 210,000 arm movements
per month. The reported interruptions that
are chargeable to the system have averaged
less than 15 per month. When the auto-
matic signals are extended to Panama, some
existing interlocking rearranged, and two ad-
ditional plants installed, the factor of safety
on the Panama railroad will be coordinate
with its other operating problems.

Increased Emigration in August.
The report of quarantine operations at the
Atlantic and Pacific terminal ports for the
month of August show an excess of emigration
over immigration of 701, as compared with a
net emigration in July of 405. The total net
emigration [rom the Isthmus to foreign ports
since July 1, 1913 has been 16,272, the greater
part of whom consisted of laborers returning
to their former homes on account of the
closing down of Canal work.

Canal Earnings in Auaust Nearly 5100.000.
Canal- revenues for the month of August
amounted to S91,664.55, the greater part of
which sum was received after August 15,
the date the Canal was officially opened to
commerce. The earnings in detail were.
as follows:

Total......... ..... . $417.610 35
The first receipts from the use of the Canal
were reported in May, and consisted princi-
pally of tolls collected from freight trans-
shipped at Balboa and taken through to
Cristobal on Panama railroad barges, in
order to relieve the congestion at that time
existing on the railroad. The records show
that there was but little difference in the cost
of handling by thisolan than over the railroad,
but the barge service accomplished the pur-
pose in taking care of the heavy cargoes of
sugar and other commodities brought to
Balboa during this period. The total earn-
ings of the Canal to September 1, from tolls,
pilotage, etc., by months is, as follows-

Building No. 14 of Colon Hospital, former-
ly a ward for male negro patients, is being re-
modeled for use as a quarantine detention

house for steerage passengers. This is a large

area of ward buildings and adjoining the area
devoted to residences and the former nurses'
quarters. The nurse,' quarters are being

detention house beyond the radio station will

Three companies of the Coast Artillery
Corps. the 21t from Fort Haoard. near
Baltimore, the 45th from Fort Dupont, near
Wilmington. Del and the 144th. from Fort
Moultrie, near Char!e'ton. S. C., arrived
on the Isthmus on the United States trans-
iorr Kipael':c on Friday, September 18.
The Kipll tnc left Charle.ton on September
II. and the voyage down was all that could
be desired The 21-t company, which has
been a5-igned to Fort Sherman on Toro Point,
is temporarily quartered in building No. 2 on
Cristobal Point. The commissioned officers


Vol. VIII, No. 5

of the company are Capt. Wade H. Carpenter,
who has not yet arrived. First Lieut. Raphael
R. Nix,temporarily in command, and Second
Lieut. Austin McC. McDon..ld. The 45th
and 144th companies will be qua rtc red for the
next few days in the old Panama Canal type
houses at Empire. They have been assigned
to Fort Amador, at the Pacific entrance, and
will be transferred to that point and go into
permanent barracks probably next week.
The barracks are expc, ted to be completed
ready to turn over on lMo-i'd,,, Serptember 28.
The commissioned officers of the 45th com-
pany are: Capt. Chas. E. T. Lull, who has not
yet joined his company; First Lieut. Robert
C. Eddy, temporarily in command, and
Second Lieut. Homer A. Bagg. The com-
missioned officers of the 144th company are:
Capt. John M. Dunn; First Lieut. Marcel
S. Keene, and Second Lieut. Bert S. Dubois.
TI., present strength of the three companies
are, as follows: 21st, 100 men; 45th, 107
men; 144th, 105 men. The number of com-
panies of Coast Artillery Corps now on the
Isthmus is six; six more companies are due
to arrive at some future date. The Kil-
patrick, which brought the Tenth Infantry
to the Isthmus in 1911. left Cristobal on
September 19 for Vera Cruz to transport
home the troops which have been on active
duty there.

Tramway Improvements.
The Panama Tramways Company has
been authorized to double track its line in the
Canal Zoni. from the boundIry at Chorrillo to
the terminus of the present double track line
at the foot of the hill near East Balboa. The
additional construction was decided on p.a lly
as a measure of safety, and partly to avoid
the delay passengers are sometimes subjected
to in waiting at the top of the hill at East
Balboa until the car from the opposite direc-
tion comes up. The danger in the single track
line at this point is of a car on the present
double track line getting away from the
motorman while going down the hill and col-
liding with a car coming from the opposite
direction on the single track. In addition,
double tracking the line as above described
will allow for a 5-minute service, instead of
a 7-minute service as at present. The com-
pany has also arranged to build a shelter
for the convenience of passengers near the
boundary at Chorrillo. The above work will
be started as soon as the material arrives
from the United States.

Canal Excavation in August.
The grand total of Canal excavation to
September 1, 1914, was 225,248,058 cubic
yards, leaving 13,597,529 cubic yards re-
maining to be excavated according to the
revised estimate of August 1, 1914.
The total excavation in August was 1,174,-
695 cubic yards, as compared with 964,994
cubic yards in July. Of this amount, dredges
removed all but 144,343 cubic yards, taking
out 423,558 cubic yards from the Culebra
Cut section, as compared with 431,634 cubic
yards for the previous month. The dry ex-
cavation amounted to 69,904 cubic yards,
and was confined entirely to operations at the
terminal sites. Hydraulic work in the rear of
Gold Hill resulted in the removal of about
75,000 cubic yards, a considerable increase
over the month of July.
The detailed figures of excavation, by

sections, and a statement of concrete placed
in the locks, follow.

Phbsical Examination of Hotel and Mess Em-
The Health Department has completed a
physical examination of all men working in
the Government hotels and messes in whom
the presence of communicable disease would
con-titute a menace to the health of patrons.
In addition to bodily examination for tuber-
culo:,s. venereal and blood diseases, etc.,
tests of stools and urine uere made tu de-
termine the presence of typhoid, paraty-
phoid, and dysentery. One typhoid carrier
was found in the person of a waiter in a
silver mess at Corozal, and he was discharged
and deported. Several other employes at
different messes were discharged for unclean
habits, but, in general, the sanitary condition
of the personnel uas found to be highly
aatiislctory. These examinations will be re-
peated from time to time, and all new men
employed in the hotel and mess service will
be subjected to similar examination.

The new Ford automobile, recently pur-
chased for the Health Department of Pana-
ma, has been placed in service.

Progress of Work on Permanent Storage and
Handling Plants at Canal Entrances.
In the construction of the permanent At-
lantic entrance coaling station, situated at
the north end of Nlindi Island, across the
French canal from Cristobal, the area [or the
dry storage has been filled to its final eleva-
tion of two feet above sealevel, the concrete
walls along the sides of this area have been
practically completed, and work is advancing
toward the north, or sea end of the plant,
which will contain the subaqueous storage;
and on the construction of the wharves
which will enclose the storage spaces and car-
ry the moving and stationary coal handling
It was planned at first to make the stor-
age area 1.000 feet long, but in con-equence
of greater demand for storage space by coal-
ing companies its length was increased to
1,700 feet by an extension of 700 feet to
the south. The width of the storage has
been increased from 250 feet to 310 feet.
The total storage now provided for at this
plant is 485.000 tons; the original plans were
for 300,000 tons.
Forty 6-foot steel cylinder caissons have
been set for the unloader wharf, but none of
them have yet been sunk to rock; for the re-
loader wharf. 90 caisssons have been set and
35 have been driven to rock and excavated. It
has been found feasible to drive the cylinders
to rock withasteamhammer. through from 30
to 65 feet of material, and afterward to do prac-
tically all the excavation by orange peel buck-
ets. Both wharves will extend a distance of
1,1 0 feet from the initial station at the sea
end of the plant, and will be connected there
by an end wharf. The reloader wharf will
be on the west side, toward the Canal, and the
unloader wharf will be on the east side, to-
ward Cristobal.
Pipeline suction dredge No. 83 is dredging
to 28 feet below sealevel the area to be occu-
pied by the subaqueou~coal storage. The spoil
is being used to back fill west wall. which area,
when comDIeted, will be used for -torage of
material. At this time. the material excavated
isalmost entirely coral rock and sand. Later,
the dredge will proceed to the excavation of
the berths alongside the shares, which will
be dredged toa depth of 41 feet for a distance
of 1,065 feet. On the east, or Cristobal side,
the channel will be 500 feet wide, including
practically the width of the French canal;
on the west side, along the reloader wharf,
the berth will be not less than 250 feet wide.
The construction of the smaller coaling
plant for the Pacific terminus is being carried
out on different lines. The site of the plant
is directly to the south of the entrance to dry
dock No. 1. The unloader wharf will form a
seawall along the south side of the entrance,
and the excavation for the entrance will thus
provide the slip alongside the wharf. The
reloader wharf will extend from the outer
end of the unloader wharf at an angle of
48 7', toward the land end of the present
Panama railroad pier at Balboa. The stor-
age pile will lie parallel to and south of the
unloader wharf. The Atlantic plant will be
in effect a pier, with berthing places on
both sides, the coal being stored within the
pier; the Pacific plant will be in effect a
continuous wharf, with an angle, the vessels
berthing only along the front of the wharf,
with the coal storage space in the rear.

The subaqueous storage will lie to the rear
of the center of the unloader wharf, and will be
covered by a dry storage, which will extend
beyond it on either side. The storage will
have a width of 350 feet. The subaqueous
storage will be 300 feet long, with its bottom
18 feet below mean tide. The total length
of storage will be 800 feet, and the bottom
of the dry storage will be at 10 feet above
sealevel. The total storage space will ac-
commodate 215,000 tons, of which 50,000
tons may be stored under water.
As the site of the coaling plant adjoins that
of the entrance to the dry dock, most of the
excavation required has been accomplished
in the dry in connection with the dry dock
excavation. The storage basins have thus
been completely excavated, with the exception
of the southeast corner, which is now occupied
by tracks of the Panama railroad, and the
berth along the greater part of the unloader
uharf has been excavated as a part of the
entrance to the dry dock. The part of the
entrance which has been excavated and the
site of the dry dock are protected by a coffer-
dam, which will be removed by dredges when
the dry dock is nearly completed. The
dredges will complete the entrance basin and
in so doing will dredge the slip alongside the
reloader wharf.
Retaining walls have been built along the
south and east sides of the storage spaces.
That on the south side is of riprap, and that
on the east side is of concrete.
Concrete is now being placed for the piers
which will support the unloader wharf, and
work is in progress on about two-thirds of
them. Supports for the cantilever cranes.
which will command the storage areas, have
been built across the east dry area, and pier
supports have been placed in the middle, or
subaqueous area. Piles are being driven for
supports for the south track of the crane
runway across the west area; supports for
the north runway over this area will be
built on rock fill, which is now being dumped.
No work has been done on the reloader
wharf. This will be supported on 6-foot steel
cylinder caissons, sunk to rock and filled with
concrete, similar to the caissons which will

support both unloader and reloader wharves
of the Atlantic coaling plant.
Contracts for the operating machinery for
the two plants were entered into on August
19, 1913. To date, none of the material has
been delivered on the Isthmus. The ma-
chinery for the Atlantic plant will be all new.
For the Pacific plant, the unloading and re-
loading towers and the conveying system
will be new, but a part of the handling
machinery will consist of four double canti-
lever cranes which were used in building the
Pacific locks of the Canal and will be recon-
structed for this service.

S More Offices Moved.
The offices of the Superintendent of Canal
Transportation, and of the Chief Health
Officer, and Chief Quarantine Officer, former-
ly in the old administration building, Ancon,
were moved on Friday and Saturday, Sep-
tember 18 and 19, into the Administration
Building at Balboa Heights. The Ancon
building now contains only the offices of
the Special Attorney, the legal department,
and the branch-pay office. The accounting
department of the commissary branch of the
Supply Department at Cristobal was moved
to Balboa last week also.

Physical Examination for Gold Employes.
Each permanent male employee of The
Panama Canal on the Isthmus on the gold
roll uill be given a physical examination to
determine his general condition and to take
steps toward remedying chronic ailments.
This procedure is in line with, work done
by life insurance companies among their
policy holders, and is comparable to general
examination and overhauling given machin-
ery, or to the practice of persons of going
periodically to a dearist for examination and
repair of the teeth.
Under the plan recommended by the Chief
Health Officer and approved by the Governor.
the examinations for Ancon and vicinity will
be held at Ancon Hospital, and for Cristobal
and vicinity, at Colon Hospital. The ex-
amination of employes-in the more isolated
settlemens- will be conducted by the nearest
district physician. All doubtful cases will
be referred to and passed on by the Ancon
Hospital Exaniaig -Board.

the Di\ i-i, n o, T,-rmin.il C.n trurtion.
around the knoll, south of the water-
works at Mount Hope. for the purpose of
laying a spur track, about 1,0100 feet long,
front the main line of the Panama railroad
to. the area reserved for the Atlantic terminal
fuel oil handling plant. The track will be

Gi)vernmenr. or front the storage tanks to
steamers taking on oil.
The constructrin ol the roadbed was ac-
complished on the "Task" plan Two crews
were employed, one reporting for duty
at 5.30 a. m., and continuing work until
about 1 p. m., \ihen the second crew took

and a corrucater.l iron roof; the floor will be
of concrete. A small amount of excavation
w1ll be necessary, in lievling off the site.

Lam Hing, a Chines e merih. nt of Colon.
Lee L-en Onn, a member of the Chini-c creci
on the L'nited Fruit Companiy's steamer
Carlage, and David Broon and Cornelius
Hilaire. West Indians in the employ:, of Lam
Hing. were tried in the District Court at
Cristobal on \\cdnesda. September 23, for
violating the opium law \hich recently, be-
came effective in the Canal Zone The evi-
dence showed that Lam Hing had sold to the
Chinese sailor, two tins of the drug, amount-
ing to about 25 pounds. The opium was
being carted to the Criatobal docks, where the
Cartago was berthed, in a sandalwood box.
when a Zone policeman, whose suspicions
were aroused, caused an investigation. As a
restir of the trial. Lam Hing and Lee Leen
Qnn were found guilty, and were lined S500
and $100. respectively The \\'et Indians,
who claimed to have been simply ob-eyine
orders and in ignorance of the contents of
the box, were permitted to gofree. The opium
was confiscated by the Zone Government
as authorized by the law, which prohibits
the exportation of smoking opium from the
United States, or from any territory under
its control or jurisdiction, or from countries
in which the United Sctj eaerca.es an cx-

traterritorial jurisdiction, under heavy penal-
ties and confiscations.

Lease of Tank for Temporary Storage of Diesel
Engine Oil.
A 'mall oil tank sirtuted on the Balboa
dump has been rented to the local .i:ri-.' of
W. R. Grace and C,,mpany, under a rev-
ocable li:enfe-, for the temporary riurage of
about 3,010 barrels of Diat c engine oil, 'i which
will be discharged froin the slejamn-r LCuo,
due to arrive at Balboa about I,:[robier 7.
This oil is to be rerdelivercd within the next
few weeks to a steamer, equipped with Di.,el
engines of the internal Lombuation r,. e.,b be-
longing to the Johnson Line of Stockholm,
Switden. which %will pass through the Canal
on its dway to San Francisco. The l cl-(nie
of installing pipe line ., etr %%ill t borne L,
the lesiee. Although \?. R Grace and Com-
par.:. have an oil [ank under eri,. tLii on the
Ball,,a res-crviatin, it %aill nut I ready faor
use for s.ever.al HtCeek.

Additional Improvements at La Boca.
The Improemnent ol Block A in the La
Bcca sil,.cr settlement, whiLh in,:lucd.-1 the
installation of uatcr ani -ciCw:ri pile,, arid the
building of streets, curb,. an;l guters, is
practically completed. The work has been
perfornmcd at a cost cun-idetrably bculol the
estimate, and because of thi, and the furth, r
fact that the improvements can probably be
made morc chc.pl' now than later, authority
has been given similarly to improve Bl,:.,k B,
which adjoins Block A. 'I o bluj ks %ill
thus be added to the silver toirwnrte ready to
be built on at any time it is de-ared.

Service Around South America.
The steamship P. t.si of the Pacific Steam
Navigation Company passed through the
Canal on September 25, on its wvay from
Liverpool to the westcoast of South America.
It discharged cargo for a day at Balboa, and
is now.lying in Panama Bay, making prepa-
rations for -ailing. Its itinerary %will be
down the west coast, thrrugh the Strait of
Magellan, up the Atlantic coast of South
America, and across to Liverpool. This is
a route over which the Pacific Steam Navi-
gation Company contemplated a fortnightly
service, using large passenger vessels of the
cla.s of the Orcnima, but the use of many of
its larger vessels by the British Government
as transports in war has caused the indefinite
suspension of the plan. The Potosi, which is
primarily a cargo vessel, with accommoda-
tions for 12 saloon passengers, will follow the
route without definite schedule.

Boston-Pacific Line.
The steamship Atlantic, which passed
through the Canal on September 18, on its
way from Boston to East San Pedro, is to be
in regular service in what will be known as
the "Boston-Pacific Line." On its outward
voyage, this vessel carried a miscellaneous
cargo of manufactured articles, including
steel, shoes, and machinery; on its return, it
will carry lumber, fruit, wine, etc. The
Pacific, anotcI:r new vessel for service in this
line, has recently completed its trials and is
due to sail from Boston about October 1.

Sailing of Vessels In Regular Service With the
Regular lines are maintained between Cristobal and
New York by the Panama Railroad Steamship Line,
vessels sailing about every six days, direct;" between
Colon and New York by the United Fruit Company
and the Royal Mail Company, sailings via Kingston
weekly and fortnightly, respectively; between Cris-
tobal and New Orleans by the United Fruit C.mnr.iny.
two vessels a week each way. Following are the .-

the faLt that the enumerators

mrlde but one visit, and that a number of
people were Iound temporarily absent from
their room', the figures given above have
been increa-ed by 1,500. The estimate of
29,.331, therefore, has been adopted as the
official basii for the compilation of future
health stati.,tics for that city. The estimate
in u-ct by the Health Department since June,
1912, was 20.2;2.
Th, first sanitary census of Colon was
tak, n in August. 1904, and at that time the
city had but 7,214 inhabitants. The last
count, therefore, shows a gain in population
in 10 :,ears of over 400 per cent. In 1911,
e. ,enisus was. tken by the Panama Govern-
ment, which showed the population to have
been 17,743 divided, as follows.

Progress on Lnited Fruit Company's New Bulld-
The United Fruit Company's new office
buiilling, situated on the Criutobal water front
adjoining th. fire station, is completed, with

the exception of some interior painting and
additional installations on the first floor;
it is expected that the offices will be ready for
occupancy shortly.
The building is of reinforced concrete
throughout, 89 feet six inches in length by
6b feet six inches in width, inclusive of the 11-
foot veranda. The lower floor will be devoted
entirely to the offices of the company; the
upper floor to quarters for the resident mana-
ger. The interior trimmings, counters, and
other office furnishings are done in solid ma-
hogany, imported from Honduras. The
counters are so arranged as to entirely en-
close the offices from the space allotted for
the use of the general public; they will be sur-
mounted by a bronze grill, provided with
suitable openings for the transaction of busi-
ness. The various departments, auditing,
freight, and passenger, will be railed in, and in
one corner of the building there is a separate
room fully enclosed, for the private office of
the manager. A record room, modern fireproof
vault, toilets, and ceiling electroliers are
among the other facilities provided. The
floor is of red tile. and in it, near the main
entrance has been worked a representation of
the company's house flag. A private branch
exchange switchboard, equipped for serving
12 telephone instruments, will be installed
near the gate for the admission of visitors
to the inner offices, and in this location, the
switchboard attendant can not only answer
calls, but give out information to the public
as well. The gate will be fitted with a button
device, so that it can be opened or closed by
any one in any of the offices.
The present office of the company, which
is in a 2-story frame building, near the Pana-
ma railroad general offices, will be rented;
the upper floor will be fitted up with entirely
new furniture and used as quarters for the
company's unmarried employes.

The Columbia Smelting and Refining
Works of New York City has entered into
contract with The Panama Canal for the
purchase of 40,500 pounds of old brass con-
denser tubesat the price of S0.0951 per pound.
and of 42,50U pounds of sheet copper at the
price of $0 1106 per pound.

Mr. C. N. Chau has been appointed vice-
consul of the Republic of China to the Re-
public of Panama.

Ample Provisions for Supplying and Repairing
Vessels- Prices.
The Canal is to be equipped with complete
facilities for supplying vessels with coal, fuel
oil, miscellanr.eus scores, and general supplies,
such as arc taken on at any of the great ports
of the world.. and for dry docking and repair-
ing vessel of the largest size now afloat. The
facilities for this service are not all completed
at this time, but the accommodations for
shipping, other than in dry docking vessels,
are ample for the traffic, and all the facilities
are being pushed toward completion. Fol-
lowing is a summary ot present accommoda-
tions. A compendium of charges is given at
the end of the article.
Coal may be taken on at either the Atlantic
or the Pacific terminal, but it costs $1 a ton
more at Balboa than at Cristobal, on account
of the cost of transportation across the Isth-
mus. The coal comes from the fields of Vir-
ginia and West Virginia and is shipped to
the Atlantic seaboard. It is handled to ves-
sels at the Atlantic end of the Canal by a
cantilever crane, commanding a coal wharf,
or in lighters, and at the Pacific end lighters
are the present means. Between 600 and
750 tons can be take' on in the working day
of nine hours at ti lier terminal, with the
present facilities.
Fuel oil is supplied at the Pacific terminus
by the Union Oil Company. The berth
alongside it. crib carries 30 feet of water at
mean tide. Oil is delivered from ranks, ag-
gregating 150,000 barrels capacity, at the
rate ol from 1,300 to 1.600 barrels per hour.
The Panama Canal is constructing extensive
fuel oil handling plants at both terminals.
A number of tank, belonging to individuals
and companies will be connected with the
plants, as mell as two 42.000barrel tanks
belonging to the Government, at each ter-
minal. Upon the completion of its plants,
in January, 1915. The Panama Canal will
assume entire control of handling oil.
Water is sold at the rate of 25 cents per
1,000 gallons. delivered at the dock, but the
minimum charge is $3. Ships passing through
the Canal may take up fresh water from the
lakes without hindrance. Not all of this
water, however, is entirely clean or suitable
for industrial uses. All mater sold at the
docks is drawn from the regular water supply
systems and has been purified.
As The Panama Canal and the Panama
Railroad Company are together operating a
large number of vessels, of a variety of classes,
from tugs to oceangoing passenger and freight
vessels, supplies for practically any kind of
vessel are kept on hand on the Isthmus. Such
supplies are for sale to all ships using the
Canal, or calling at the terminal ports. The
storehouses at Cristobal and Balboa have in
stock all standard lubricants, light and heavy
hardware, cordage, and miscellaneous ship
chandlery supplies.
Foodstuffs and the general variety of mer-
chandise handled by the commissary depart-
ment of The Panama Canal may be purchased
for ships. The fact that the Supply De-
partment is supplying regularly rr.ost of the
food and wearing apparel of approximately
50.000 people is a warrant that its operations
are on a scale which can easily include the
needs of ships now coming to the Canal.

Prices are generally lower than the retail
prices in the United States, or possibly about
10 per cent higher than the wholesale prices
there, and compare favorably with prices in
any port of the world.
A large stock of fresh meats, vegetables,
fruits, canned groceries, bakery products, etc.,
is always on hand, and advance arrange-
ments can be made for supplies of any article
obtainable in the markets of the world.
Ice may be purchased in any reasonable
Laundry is handled quickly. No advance
notice is required, and ship's laundry can be
returned on the same day it is received. A
vessel entering the Canal can forward its
laundry by rail to the plant at Cristobal, or
the one at Ancon, and receive it back by the
time it is ready to clear from the other end
of the Canal. Passengers' laundry caA be
handled with corresponding dispatch, but it
is preferred to have at least two days for the
Except for the limitations imposed at
present by the absence of a large dry dock,
and of lathes for turning the largest crank
shafts and longest line shafts of modern ves-
sels, the Canal shops can do practically any
repair work which a vessel might bring.
Sufficient materials, including heavy billets
and all sizes of plates and angles, are kept
on hand to meet every probable need. The
foundry can make steel castings up to five
tons in weight, and iron castings up to 10
tons, as well as brass castings of any ordinary
The shops at Balboa are equipped with a
540-ton hydraulic forging press, an open
side extension planer with capacity to plane
132 inches wide, 96 inches high, and 24 feet
long, lathes large enough for ordinary line
shaft work, and the usual accessories of fully
equipped machine, boiler, and shipfitters'
shops. The shops alongside the dry dock at
Mount Hope can do small machine work of
moderate size, and practically any plate
work likely to be required. By submitting
to the delay necessary to transport parts to
Balboa, all the facilities of the Balboa shops
are also available for work at Mount Hope.
The Mount Hope dry dock can take ships
drawing 131 feet of water and 300 feet
long; the permanent dry dock now under
construction at Balboa will take any vessel
that can pass through the Canal.
The Balboa shops contain a plant for the
generation of oxygen and acetylene, and
both they and the shops at Mount Hope are
equipped with tools for all kinds of cutting
and welding. Compressed air, steam, water,
oil, and electric current are available at the
repair wharves in the maximum quantity re-
quired. Locomotive and wrecking cranes
are available at the wharf side for lifting, and
a derrick barge with a lifting capacity of 40
tons may be brought into service if necessary.
Two floating derricks of 250-tons capacity
each are being erected now, and are to be
ready for service in December, 1914.
Contracts for doing repair work at a stated
cost cannot be made by The Panama Canal,
though estimates of probable cost can be
furnished from the shops. Charges are made
on the basis of actual cost of repairs, plus a
percentage to cover overhead expenses, pre-
scribed by The Panama Canal.
The Hotel Washington at Colon and the

Hotel Tivoli at Ancon, adjoining Balboa, and
the Hotel Aspinwall, on Taboga Island, are
owned and operated by the Government for
the accommodation of the traveling public.
Reservations can be made in the same way as
at privately owned hotels.
Ancon Hospital is equipped with 800 beds.
It treats about 35,000 cases a year, in which
approximately 7,000 surgical operations are
performed. Its staff of physicians and sur-
geons includes men of marked experience and
ability, and several experts in tropical medi-
vine. The treatment of cases from neighbor-
ing countries and from ships is a part of its
regular work.
Direct cable connections extend from
the Isthmus to New York and to the west
coasts of Mexico, Central, and South America.
The radio stations at Colon and Balboa handle
commercial business.
Steamship captains, or agents, desiring the
services of The Panama Canal in the way of
supplies, repairs, etc., will receive prompt
response on communicating with the captain
of the port at Balboa or Cristobal. Ships
may communicate their wants by radio, in
advance of arrival. The Canal organization,
having made ample preparations for serving
vessels, is desirous of giving prompt and
satisfactory service on a businesslike basis,
without unnecessary delay or red tape.
The captain of the port will furnish in-
formation in regard to placing orders, and
should be notified of all orders placed, so that
he may be able to keep track of them in re-
lation to clearing ship, etc. It orders are
placed direct, application should be made to
to the following:
Coal-Receiving and forwarding agent,
Panama railroad, Cristobal, or Balboa.
Fuel oil-Union Oil Company, Balboa.
Ships' supplies-Depot quartermaster,
Cristobal, or quartermaster's storekeeper,
Foodstuffs, general merchandise, ice, laundry,
etc.-Depot commissary, Cristobal, or com-
missary storekeeper, Balboa.
Repairs-Superintendent of Mechanical
Division, Balboa.
Water and miscellaneous supplies, and in-
formation-Captain of the port, Cristobal,
or Balboa.
Electric repairs such as wiring, lights, dyna-
mos, etc.-Electrical Engineer, Balboa Heights.
Bills for all supplies will be submitted
through the offices of the deputy collectors
at the ports for collection, or cash may be
sent with orders. Bills for supplies furnished
ships of regularly established lines will be sub-
mitted to the local agents, if desired.
The following is a partial list of the charges
prevailing at present for various services, but
they are subject to change from time to time:
Coal-At Cristobal, from lighters, trimmed
in bunkers, per ton, $5.40; from cars along-
side wharf, handled by ships' gear, per ton,
$5.15; use of steam hoist and crane, per hour,
$1. At Balboa, the price is$1 more per ton,
either form of delivery.
Fuel oil-Regular sales, $1.30 per barrel.
Water-Delivered at dock, 25 cents per
1,000 gallons; minimum charge, $3.
General appliess, foodstuffs, etc.-Prices are
usually less than retail prices in the United
States. Wholesale lists may be obtained from
the offices of the port captains.

Enrollment In Schools for White Children Larger
Than Anriclpaled.
The Canal Zone schools were opened on
Thursday, October 1, with an unexpectedly
large enrollment in the schools for white
children on the first day. There are nine
grade schools for white children, two less
i ha Ia -e.ir; and two high schools, one each
at Balboa and Cristobal. The schools at
Empire and Porto Ir. II. were closed perma-
nently last year. It had been expected that the
re,-li:.ir.n of force and the movement of the
population toward the Pacific end of the
Canal v.tiul.1 greatly reduce the number of
pup.ilk in Trh schools along the line, but this
.was not the case. At Culebra, as an illus-

The largest school for white children is at
Cristobal, which opened with 190 pupils.
Fro!l .nll is the enrollment on tl,e opening
day, by schools: Balboa, 100; Ancon, 153;
Corozal, 133; Pedro Miguel, 52; Paraiso,

-Balboa, 65; Cristobal, 20; total, 85, making
a grand total of 951 in the schools for white
There are 36 teachers in the force of the
schools for white children, not including the
supervi-or of industrial teaching.
The enrollment for the first day in the schools
for colored children was 475. This low figure
does not indicate the normal size of the schools,
however, as the colored children seldom enroll
on the opening day of school if it falls near
the end of the week. At Ancon school, for
example, the enrollment on October 1 was 63,
while on Monday, October 5, there were 112
children present; at LaBoca, the increase was
70, at Paraiso, 20, and at Cristobal, the first
day's enrollment was increased by 77 pupils
on M...,il:. There are six isch-li.lIs operated
for colored children, with a staff of 20 teachers.
The colored enrollment by schools for the
opening day; follows: La Bota 129; Ancon,
I.-: Paraiso, 32; Gatun, 32; Mount Hope,
15; Cristobal, 204; total, 475. On Monday,
October 5, the enrollment at these schools
was 731, an increase of nearly 50 per cent.

Ihe head ol -ip i\o. I has been reserved for it.
A temporary track has been laid on top of
the qUds' wall, lor a distance of about 400

feet, which will be used as a loading track
for steel dump cars. It will be necessary to
employ a light locomotive in placing the cars
in position, as the concrete girders and beams
in the floor, except along the permanent
track, are not designed to bear up railway
equipment. The loading of the cars from
barges will be accomplished by locomotive
cranes operating clamshell buckets.

Messrs. C. L. Parker, John H. Smith,
C. C. McColley, and John F. Warner have

been appointed a committee to, inspect the
wooden office furniture in the new Adminis-
tration Building, with a view of ultimately
replacing it with metallic equipment.

Progress on Canal Colliers.
A progress report on the new Canal colliers,
the Achilles and Ulysses. now building at the
yagds of the. Maryland Steel Company at
Sparrow's Point, Md., shows that on Aujgust
31, work on both vessel.s aa \till ahead o.f
contract time. The estimated degree of com-
pletion of the Achilles, under the hull speci-
fications, including equipment and installation
of ordnance, was 37.6 per cent. of which 2.
per cent was represented by work, and 9.6
per cent by material. The elapsed time in
building to August 31 was 4.6 months, and
on that date the collier was estimated to he
1.2 mpnths ahead of schedule. The estt-
mated degree of completion of the Llysses,
under the hull specifications, which are simi-
lar to thosq of the .chills, was 42.2 per cent.
of which 35.8 per cent sLas represented b,
work, and 6.4 per cent hb material. The
elapsed time in building to August 31 \waI
4.6 months, showing work on this vessel to
be 1.8 months ahead of schedule .

T~icoliererJitrr. which arrived] at Balboa
on Thurdacy,. October 8, on, its way frorg the
north Pa.tfic Ocean to Philadelphia, where it
will restock with coal, is the largest vessel to
have, pas-prd through the Canal to date. It
is 520 fk-t. n1g, 65feet in the Lbamn. and has a
mean draft of 27 feet eight inches \When
loaded with itsnornal supply of roal, its dis-
placeenent is 19,360 tons.
The Jupiler is the onlr large .e.sel in the
world dri.ve;.b electricity. The gleucticity is
developed by a turbogengaior. driven by
steapp for. which coal is the fuel and trans-
mitted to large motors connected to the tssin
shatts. The ship's ufficrs say that the pro-
pelling system is satisfacmr. and effects an
economy of about 35 per cent in comparison
with the usual systems-. The Jupiter makc,
a sped -of 14 knot<. and itp sister ship. the
Cyclops, which is driven by marine enginee,
makes a, ,peeof. 14.61 knots.
The ships papsage through the Canal wa'
begun in the morning of Sa'turay. October 10.

and on that day it wa- taken as far as the an-

R,.in-The average November rainfall at
the Arlantic entrance of the Canal is 21.70
inches, and on the Pacific side. 10.50 inches.
Tni:.ntwyseen days ,ith rain ma) bee peccted
on the Atlantic side, and about 23 on the

entrance, the greater part rfI the rainfall
about 70 per cent i occurs during the day time,
while alone the Atlantic iroast nearly half rof
the rain falls at night.
Fogs-Practically no fogs may be expected
at either Canal entrance. The average num-
ber of nighir during the nconth nith light

Sio.rns-The 4o-called "Northers" may
pu;.ibly extend as far south .1 the Atlantic
entrance of the Canal during the month of
November. These storms are charactcriz-ed
1,i steady brisk northerly winds ranging in
velocity up to 30 or more miles per hour, and
are u'uall. accompanied by a heavy swell
The \inds alone are of insufficient force ma-
terially to afficr navigation at the Atlantic
entrance. but the accompanying swell and
heavy .ea outside the breakwater may at
times prove romrew hat troublesome
Smooth -ieas and quiet te.ithcr may be
.ipect.d to prevail rlroughouti the month
at the Pacific entrance to Ihe -Canal.
Tides--Tidal fluctuations need not be con-
sidered in navigating the Arlanric: entrance
of the Canal. as the average tidal range is
less than one foot. anid the e\rreme range
about two (feFt.
At the Pacific entranire. the average tidal
range is about 13 Iett, whilr the maximum
range may reach 20 feet. Panama tide pre-

Coal in Cargo Space.
A ves.el coming to the Canal for transit
"In ballast" had coal stored in a part of the
cargo space, and ,as accordingly charged the
rate of S1.20 a ton, instead of the ballast rate
of 72 cents. The ruling that cargo space must
not be occupied if a vessel is to be rated "In
ballast" is clear, and The Panama Canal will
insist upon strict compliance
Even in the case'of n vessel of foreign regis-
try, in transit from one United States port to
another under a customs declaration of being
in ballast, and prohibited by law from carry-
ing cargo between 'uch ports, it is pointed out
that zhis does not affect the actual condition
in regard to the space designated by the Pa-
nama rules as corning rapacity, which alone
forms the fundamental basis upon which tolls
are charged.

Collapse of Section of Trestle Bridge Over French
A section. about 51) feet long, of the tempo-
rary trestle bridge over the French canal "at
Mount Hope. used for the passage of work
and labor trains from the mainland to the
site of the new coaling station on Teller's
Island. collapsed suddenly on Monday after-

October 14, 1914 -


noon, October 12, carrying a 75-ton crane
and its engineer to the bottom o the canal,
a depth of about 22 fear. The engineer cx-
tricated himself from the machine with some
difficulty, but finally reached -hurt- safely.
A heavy, piledriver passed over the tre-.tle a
few minutes before the accident, and at that
time there was no intimation ui trouble. The
trestle was being used onl, until the new, iron
bridge, no'j under cunstructiun ,it the samr
point, is completed.

Christmas Gifts for Children in War Zone.
A Nti, York paper has begun a imovenment
ti have the children of the United States
send Christmas presents to the children in the
war zone of Europe, including Japan, nwho
have been made fatherle-' by the nar. The
proposition has met with an immediate re-
sponse and throughout the country children
are organizing for the project. The idea is to
designate in each city and totn one or more
receiving depots w here the giflt of the children
will be sent. These recess ing depots will, in
their turn, forward the gifts to one central
depot in N-ew York Cit., whence they will
be forwarded by ship, called the "Children's
ship" in timr to reach Europe before Decem-
ber 25. Arrangements %ill ha\e bten nicle:
for depositing and forv.'arding depotI in the
port towns where the steamer will Iall I he
President and official, of the Unittd States
Government are interested, though not offi-
cially connected with the movement. and
aid has been promised to insure the safe de-
livery of the freight on the children's ship.
An invitation has been extended to the
children in the Canal Zone ro join this move-
ment. Through their clubs, camp fire girl-,
and bo\ scouts, their school classes and the
Sunday schools, the American children are
asked to form organizations lur thr purpose
of collecting gifts. These gift, should be pre-
ferably small articles such as mai be easily
transported. The Governor of thr Panama
Canal has promised free transportation into
the United States for the children's eifts.
Parcels should be sent tn the district quar-
termaster in an\ Canal village, marked
"Chritmas gifltsfur Europe,"\ here they w\ll
be received and packed for shipment. whilee
tos and books ill be acceptable, emphasi-
is being laid on the ncct-:itl for uselul arti-
cle:, as thi presents are intended primarily
for distribution among the children of the
poorer classes un iihuim the loss of the father
and breadwinner fall' mtaui hLas\ily.

nature of the work done, and then forward
to the Division of Schools. In cise the child

Reading on Traids.
A circular ha- been issued to the pupils
traveling on the trains instructing them to
a\oid reading as much as possible while
trasrling. If reading or study are found to be
necessary, the pupils are cautioned to mini-
mize it. A protection to the strain of the
cesti if reading is necessary, will be found in
slipping a card or piece of paper under each
successive line. The further caution is given
to the pupils neverto read on the evening train
on the approach of dusk, or when the lamps
are lighted. The circular is in line with the
effort to maintain the highest possible phy'i-
cal efficients in the pupils of the Canal Zone
