Canal Medals and Service Bars.
Canal medals for American employes of the
Isthmian Canal Commis ion and the Panama
Railroad Company who completed two years
of service between January 1. 1909, and
January 1, 1910, have been received at the
office of the Chairman. There are 1,035
medals to be distributed in accordance with
the list published in THE CANAL RECORD of
March 23 and subsequentt dates. The sen ice
bars to be attached to medals earned prior
to January I, 1910, and representing two
years of service, in addition to the tao years
represented by the medals themselves, have
not yet been received but are expected within
the next week or two. Employes entitled
to the medals should write for information to
the head of their respective Department or
Division, through whom the distribution will
be made. Such inquiries should not be made
however, prior to September 15, as the distri-
bution cannot be completed before that time.
Medals for service from 190S to 1910, and
bars for service from 1904 to 1910, and from
1906 to 1910 will be distributed about one
year from this date in accordance with a list
that will be compiled and published after
January 1, 1911.
Fresh Water tor Power Plant Condensers.
Salt water backs up in the French canal from
Liroon Bay to the unloading slip at Gatun
docks, and into the old West Diversion chan-
nelfrom which water for the condensers at the
Gatun power plant is taken. While the old
channel of the Chagres, north of Gatun Dam,
was open the tide water dissipated itself in
that channel, and there was always a stream
of fresh water flowing from the East Diver-
sion into the French canal. But since the
dike from the Dam to Mindi was built the
water in the East Diversion has been affected
by salt, and the cast iron of the condensers
already shows the ill effects. To prevent
further corrosion, by insuring a constant sup-
ply of fresh water, a pile dam is being built
which will keep the salt water out of the West

Diversion channel and away from the intake
for the condensers Creosoted round piles
have been driven and the gaps between them
will be filled by driving creosoted sheet piling.
The round piles are creosoted in the State;,
but the sheet piles will be treated at Gatun
A tank with steam heating apparatus will be
constructed near thedock-. and in this, creo-
sote oil will be heated. The piles bathed in
the hot oil will be dried out and the pores of
the wood will open. They will then be placed
in a bath of cold creosote oil. with the result
that the oil will permeate every part of the
Accumulative Leave.
At 3 meeting of the Commi'-ion held on
August 25 it was decided to permit the arru-
mulation of annual leave to an amount not to
exceed 84 days, beginning with leave falling
due on or after January I, 1I11. The rules
for the granting .-,f accumulative leave will
be published in a future issue of THE. CANAL
Garun Locks Pumping Plant.
Two 12-inch centrifugal pumps are being
installed in the drainage sump at the north
end of Gatun Locks. where the excavation in
one shovel cut is already at the final grade. 45
feet below sea level. They will lift 4,200
gallons of water a minute each against a head
of 100 feet, and will replace two 12-inch pumps
designed tn act against a 50-foot head only.
They will be mounted on a barge 26 feet long,
16 feet wide, and 2 feet 8 inches deep, which
will rest on timbers in the sump during low
water, but will rise with the water during heavy
rains. A 200-horsepower induction motor,
supplied with current from the Gatun ponser
house, will drive each pump.
Villages Exposed to Flood.
Notice to vacate has been given to the oc-
cupants of buildings likely to be flooded by
freshets in the Chagres River during the
present rainy season. All persons occupying
buildings below elevation 40 feet above sea
level at Tabernilla, 35 feet at Frijoles, 30 feet
at Bohio, 28 feet at Ahorca Lagarto, and 25
feet at Gatun have been warned. At Taber-
nilla there are 10 such buildings, between Tab-
ernilla and Frijoles, 36; at Frijoles. 44; at
Bohio. 6; at Ahorca Lagarto, 16; between
Ahorca Lagarto and Lion Hill 4; at Lion Hill,
10: island in Gatun Lake immediately north
of the spillway, 2, Gatun saddles, west. 6.
All the houses in Ahorca Lagarto, all the pri-
vate houses in Frijolcs. and all but five of the
buildings at Lion Hill are likely to be flooded.
In the Gatun River valley, several houses
between Gatun and Monte Lirio, five miles
uptheriver,are already in the water. Monte
Lirio is above the 35-foot contour and not
likely to be flooded, but 13 houses on the north
bank of the river are below the safety line.
In the Trinidad valley, one house between
the Chagres and Agua Clara. and 22 houses in

Volume IV.

No. 1.

Agua Clara, the whole village excepting two
houses, are exposed. and several houses along
the Trinidad Riser, both above and be-
low Agua Clara, are already in the water.
The houses at Esco. al on the Trinidad have
been moved to high ground. At Pefia Blanca,
on the Chagres near the mouth of the Trini-
dad, the whole hamlet of 23 houses is below
the high water mark. The precaution, neces-
sary this year as it has not been in years past,
is due to the fact that Gatun Dam has raised
the surface of the river above Gatun 10 feet
higher at low water than it was before the
Dam obstructed the channel.
Heavy Rainfall at Empire and Culebra.
In a shower local to Empire and Culebra
on August 27 a total of 2.2 inches fell at
Empire between 2 p. m and 3.05 p. m., and of
this amount, 2 16 inches fell in the 40 minutes
from 2.20 to 3 p m. AL Culebra, between 1.25
p m. and 3 p. m., 2.3 inches fell, and of this
amount, 2.14 inches fell between 2 05 and
2.45 p. m.
Balboa Harbor Terminal Work.
Preliminary work in connection with the
proposed Balboa terminal harbor improve-
ments is in progress It consists of boring to
a depth of about 40 feet at mean tide to
ascertain the character of the material to be
removed, and in clearing off the heavy swamp
growth that overss the harbor area. The
-clearing operation; have been started on the
long and narrow mud spit that extends into
the present harbor, opposite the Balboa sand
dock, separating the Canal channel from that
of the RioGrande. AIot of old French marine
equipment had found lodgment on the point.
but during the past six months moct of it has
been removed to the mainland on the west
side of the Canal channel. The brush-cutting
gang consists ol about fifty 10-cent West In-
dian laborers, who work steadily through the
noon hour and quit for the day at 4 p. m.
Building Notes.

Plans have been completed at the office of
the Constructing Quartermaster for a dyna-
mite and detonator house at Toro Point. It
will be 36 ?' by 17 feet in size.

Lumber Shipments.
The steamer Cuzco arrived at the port of
Balboa on August 24, with a mixed cargo of
lumber on board, aggregating 742,000 feet
B. M. The steamer Bramley is on the way
from Puget Sound with another cargo, while
the steamer Hornellen i- now loading, or about
to sail, with a third consignment.

Extension of Operations at Miraflores Locks.
Concrete operations at the Miraflores
Locks will be considerably increased after
September 1, when the two 2-cubic yard
mixers installed in the east storage trestle,
near the north end of the upper lock, will be
ready for service. They will produce con-
crete for the east side wall. Their out-
put will be carried to the wall in buckets,
either on cars which will run over a track
extending along the edge of the forebay, thence
down an incline track into the lock pit, or by
hauling the buckets toa point where the berm,
crane can handle them.
Seven of the lateral culverts in the east
chamber and the floor between them have


been completed, and this work will be kept
well in advance of the side wall construction.
The ta-yard auxiliary mixer is now engaged on
the floor and culvert work in this chamber,
and further south four derricks have been
erected for continuing the culvert excavation.
The two i'-cubic yard auxiliary mixers are at
work placing concrete in the sills of the upper
end gates, dumping their output directly into

Balboa Notes.
Barge No. 4, the first of the four dump
barges erected at the Balboa shipways over
two years ago, is receiving a general over-
hauling. These barges were built by the
Maryland Steel Company, and shipped to the
Isthmus in sections to be put together at
Balboa. They are giving good service, and
this is the first time No. 4 has been laid up
for repairs since it was placed in commission.
The steamer Cuzco from Puget Sound, laden
with 742,000 feet of mixed lumber, reached
the port of Balboa on Wednesday, August 24,
with a heavy list to port, caused by the shift-
ing of its deck load. It was met in the chan-
nel and towed to the Panama railroad % harf
by one of the Pacific Division tugs.
The position of superintendent of suba-
queous excavation in the Pacific [i visionn has
been abolished. Theoffice was direct lyv under


On July, 27 there were 36,450 employes actually at work on the Canal and the Panama
railroad, and of this number, 29,901 were Canal employes. The gold force on the Canal
work, composed almost entirely of white Americans, was 4,380. No labor recruiting
was necessary during the month.
The report of the Chief Quartermaster for July, shows that the number of family quar-
ters occupied by "gold" employes was 1,683, which is 3 less than in June, and the occu-
pants numbered 5,103, an increase of 55. Of this number, 1,775 were women, and 1,659
children. Bachelor quarters occupied by "gold" employes numbered 1,925 and the
occupants numbered 3,576, of whom 133 were women. The family quarters, occupied by
European laborers numbered 303, and the occupants, 851; bachelor quarters, 11I, and
the number of occupants, 5,417. The family quarters occupied by West Indians numbered
1,078, and the occupants, 3,522; bachelor quarters, 258, and the number of occupants. 5.096.

the resident engineer at Balboa, and the work
which consisted of drilling, blasting, and oper-
ation of the rock breaker Vulcan and drill
barge Teredo, will continue to be in his charge.
The suction dredge Culebra broke a blade
in its propeller on Saturday, August 20, by
striking a log in the channel. A new blade
was fitted, and the boat was ready for service
again the following tide.
Clapet No. 10 is on the gridiron at the ship-
ways, where it is being equipped with a sand
excluding device designed to prevent sand
from cutting the propeller shaft and bushing.
Work on the concrete barge, under erection
near the shipways. is advancing steadily.
The frame work is in place and the laying of
concrete was begun last week. The barge will
be used for general purposes about the harbor.
The construction of a dump scow of rein-
forced concrete, which will be larger than any
so far built. is contemplated.

Work Preparatory to Opening Government Landa
to Farmers.
Field work on the survey of the land area
of the Canal Zone as it will be after the com-
pletion of the Canal has been begun. The
survey will be prosecuted for the Canal Zone
government by the Third Division of the
office of the Chief Engineer, and the expenses
will be paid from an appropriation of $75,000
made for this purpose by the Congress at its
last session.
It will be based on the triangulation sur-
vey of the Zone, which is nearly completed,
with the initial point of the system of rect-
angular coordinates on Balboa Hill, the top
of which is visible from hills in all parts of the
Zone. A standard meridian and base line will
intersect in the triangulation station on that
hill, and boundary lines, run parallel with
this meridian and base line respectively, will
divide the line into quadrilaterals will.
sides measuring two kilometers, about (1.24
statute miles), and containing 4 square kilo-
meters, equivalent to 400 hectares (988.42
acres). Certain of the boundary lines at a
distance of not more than 10 kilometers (6 21
miles) from one another will be run with the
utmost care and will be known as "standard
guide lines," and all intermediate bou-lary
lines will be carefully adjusted with refehnce
to these guide lines. Field measurements
on the guide lines will be as infrequent as pos-
sible, intersections from triangulation sta-
tions, with short spurs carefully measured and
checked, being used to control direction.
It is planned to prosecute the work in the
following order, starting from the initial point
on Balboa Hill. (I' Southeast quadrant,
which includes all Zone lands approximately
south and east of Las Cascadas. (2) North-
east quadrant, including all Zone lands approx-
imately north of Las Cascadas and east of
Gorgona. (3) Northwest quadrant, includ-
ing all Zone lands north and west of Balboa
Hill. (4) The remaining lands.
During the progress of work on the bound.
ary lines the topographer, in addition to
his other work, will carefully note all existing
property lines, clearings, trails, streams, and
other natural or artificial features. He will
also make notes regarding the character of
the country passed over, stating fully whether
it be swampy or hilly, rocky or fertile, and,
where possible, %ill get in" ration from the
natives as to the charactt --f 'he crops to
which the soil is best adapt' -l'. Fpli notes
will be made regarding the character and
amount of vegetation, whether the trees be
of hard or soft wood, and the probable com-
position of the rocks and soil. Notes will
also be made as to the best location for trails
for opening up the country.
The purpose of the land survey is to get
accurate data on which a system of land
leasing may be built up, in accordance with
the Act of Congress of February'27, 1909,
which provides for 25-year renewable leases
of tracts of not over 50 hectares, to persons
21 years of age or over,who satisfy the Govern-
ment that they expect to settle upon and culti-
vate the land. This data will be placed on
three maps or plans, as follows:
(1) Large scale record plans, 56 by 48
inches, scale I to 2,000, or approximately one
inch to 167 feet. Each of these plans will
cover 4 square kilometers of territory, will be
used as a record plan of the allotments in that

quadrilateral, and will contain all information
regarding the location in detail. It would
require 500 of these sheets to cover the Zone,
land and water.
(21 Medium scale district plans, scale I to
20,000, or approximately one inch to one-third
of a mile. These plans will cover the entire
Zone, their boundaries being limited by the
drainage basins of the principal streams. They
will show the general lay of the land, its
topography and availability for general devel-
opment. The principal use of these plans will
be in the comprehensive laying out of roads
and trails: and the interrelation of villages
and plantations, the character of the country
and its adaptability for farming, grazing or
plantation work will be shown.
(3) Small scale general map of the Zone,
including Gatun Lake,scale 1 to 40,000approx-
imately five-eighths of an inch per mile. This
will be the general map of the entire territory
and will contain some information in regard
to the territory immediately contiguous on
either side of the Zone lines.
The sections will be designated or indexed
by numbers, beginning with the origin of the
system on Balboa Hill and progressing north,
south, east, and west, along the axes, the
quadrant in which the section is located being
shown by the initial letters of the direction
words. Thus, a section situated in the south-
east quadrant at a point 8 kilometers south
and 11 kilometers east of Balboa Hill wouldd
be indicated "S. 8; E. 11."

Promotions in Engineering Positions.
In accordance with recommendations of a
committee appointed for that purpose, the
following rules have been adopted for exami-
nations to procure eligibles for promotion
among rodmen and levelmen employed on the
Canal or the Panama railroad:
1. First examination to be held on the last
Sunday in October and first Sunday in Novem-
ber, 1910. All rodmen and levelmen in the
service of the Commission and Panama Rail-
road Company to be notified that they are
expected to enter the examination on one of
these dates, provided however, that if possi-
ble, arrangements should be made to examine
all applicants at the same time, and if this is
not practicable, and examinations are held
on different dates the problems and engi-
neering questions be changed for the second
Sunday's examination.
2. Subject to further consideration, exam-
inations will be held every six months and all
rodmen and levelmen who have not been pre-
viously examined be required to enter.
3. No employee shall be considered eligible
for promotion from rodman to levelman and
from levelman to transitman until he has
submitted to and passed the required exami-
nation. All employes who have passed the
examination will be considered equally eligi-
ble for promotion under such regulations re-
garding selection of employes for promotion
from the eligible list by the heads of depart-
ments and divisions as may be decided upon
4. A rodman will be permitted to take the
examination for transitman in preference to
the examination for levelman if he shall so
elect, and in case he passes the examination
for transitman he shall be considered eligible
for promotion to levelman and from levelman
to transitman without further rest.
5. No levelman or transitman shall be
selected in the United States for service on

the Isthmus as long as there are already on
the Isthmus men in the lower grades who have
passed the requisite examination and are
available for promotion or transfer to the
vacancies which it is proposed to fill.
6. Examinations will be divided into three
I'a Written examination, as per sample
submitted with committee's report. Relative
weight, 40 per cent.
0b. Education, experience and testimonials
Relative eight, 10 per cent. For testimo-

Free Transportation Conditionally Granted to
Players-A Six-Team League.
Free transportation will be granted to
Isthmian baseball players in the regularly
organized league during the 1910-11 season,
providing certain stipulations are agreed to.
These are embodied in the following report
recently submitted by Commissioner H. H.
Rousseau, President of the Isthmian League:
Referring to the joint report of June 1 submitting
certain recommendations regarding the future conduct
of baseball on the Isthmus in which it is stated that
dehnit. information in regard to obtaining free trans-
portaniorn for the ball teams was necessary before arri-
ving at a dec,;ion. Ibeg tostateforyourinformationand
,uch other amon as you may consider proper that the
iollol ing propoition ha'. been tentatively approved by
tre Chj.,rain ol th5 Isthmian Canal Commission,
ahicr, should result in securing the free transportation
desired and %iLhouL expense to the Commission:
The Commis.ion pays the Panama railroad for all
free transpottialion granted Commission employes, a
month iI, aurn, aa reed upon in advance as measuring the
value ofi ernicej rendered. This contract price is an
even thousand dollars, and it is understood that the
vluc of traniportation -rav ar 6.1s00 either way from
thi 1.000, without aini: ring the c.ntr.,:t price Thus.
in oth.r word. ,at iar, .nvcr _c pio- Ii can very well
happen then tnat the C.orn-in.ion could afford to offer
to include in i4s transport ston. ilth ball pi 3ers. without
affecting its contract with the Panama railroad. It is
ast,s.ned that bhsebali trarinporL taiLor L oul. ne:r exceed
$200 pet month anr l t ll proDblyl b r, JrTr $15 per
morth. Ii. ho geyer. by in-..ijding b-a b.ll tr3rnporta-
tion, the Commission would become liable to an increase
in its contract price to the Panama railroad-$11,000
per month -it wuld expect to deduct the cost of base-
ball Lr n.;i por t i t ion from its transportation expense for
that month In such cases the baseball league will
have to assume this expense itself for that month, and
for every month in which this occurs.
The Commission in granting free transportation on
these terms would expect to have the payment of base-
ball tr.nrporation ga. ra.nteed which might be done by
Tre vrious clubs concerned authorizing any expense
for transportation on request of the Commission, to
be paid from the $100 cash forfeit put up at the begin-
ning of the season. I have looked over the monthly
transportation expenses during the past year, and it
does not appear to me that a contingency under these
terms, by which the baseball clubs would become liable
for pasienger tranrponaic.n. is very certain. I believe
that this arr-angemenlt .i the most favorable one that
can be made with the Commission at the present time
regarding iree tran partoi nation Iur L.all plah,er arid if the
baseball league deires to nimake a fiia] prop.o.,ition tO the

The above arrangement is looked upon
favorably by the officials of both of the old
leagues, and a meeting will be called within
the next few weeks to act upon the report.
The plans for the coming season contem-
plate the organization of a six-team league
to take the place of the two former leagues,
to be composed of clubs from Colon, Cristobal,
Gorgona, Camp Elliott, Empire and Ancon.
This plan eliminates two of the four teams
that composed the Atlantic League last year,
but leaves the present Isthmian League cir-
cuit intact. There will be three ball parks
available, one each at Colon, Empire, and
Ancon, the Gorgona grounds having been
abandoned last season.
Labor Day Athletic Meet.
A total of 165 entries, representing 70 differ-
ent individuals hasbeen received forthe ath-
letic meet to be held at the Empire baseball
park inthe forenoon of Labor Day, September
5. Arrangements for the event are being per-
fected, and a special train will be run from
Colon to Empire leaving Colon at 6.45 a. m.,
and returning, leave Empire at 5 p. m.

will be operated by a hoisting engine, and
both it and the mixer will be supplied with
steam from the same boiler
The mixing plant with side discharge, so as
to dump into a bucket to be handled by
a locomotive crane, will be mounted on a
standard Canal flat car. On one side will be a
side loader, with frame extended downward
to permit the assembling of the batch of rock,
sand and cement in the skip on the track
level. The mixer and side loader will be
operated by the same engine. The mixer
will discharge on the opposite side of the flat
car into a receiving hopper or temporary
chute, A ith a capacity of two batches of con-
crete. This hopper will be so attached that
it can be taken off in case it is desired to
discharge direct into the footings of the re-
taining wall through a wooden chute, to be
supplied by the Commission.
High grade material must be used in both
plants, and the equipment must be made
strong enough to stand hard, continuous
usage for three or four years. The steel must
be well cleaned by sandblast and given a coat
of red lead before shipment. The contractor
will furnish instructions for erecting the plant
and keeping the equipment in order.
The material bins for sand, rock and cement
will be constructed by the Commission. They
will be portable, built upon a Canal flat car,
and will spout the materials to the side loader
skip by which they will be conveyed to the
Ancon Crusher.

Part of Relocated Line In Use.
That part of the relocated line of the Pana-
ma railroad, between the south end of Culebra
Cut and Corozal, was opened to regular traffic
on September 4, and henceforth the old line
of the railroad between those points will be
used principally by construction trains. New
stations have been erected on the new line at
Pedro Miguel and Miraflores. The reloca-
tion in this section is necessary because the
old line between the south end of Culebra Cut
and Miraflores Locks will be covered by water
upon the completion of the Canal, when the
surface of the lake at Miraflores will be 55
feet above sea level. The new line is practi-

call parallel with the old. It runs on an em-
bankment through the lake territory, passes
through MNliraflores ridge in a tunnel 736 feet
long, and then crosses the Canal dump be-
tween Miratlores and Corozal, joining the old
line at Corozal. It is about 4'> miles long.
Upon the completion of the Canal, the locks
at Pedro Miguel and Niraflores, Miraflores
Lake, and part of the channel, between Mira-
flores Locks and the Pacific entrance, can be
seen from trains passing over this section of
the railroad.

Lock Work at Gatun.
The construction plant at Gatun Locks was
shut down at 1.35 o'clock in the afternoon of
August 31, on account of lack of water, due to

September 7, 1910. THE CANAL RECORD

Method of Collection and Disposal in Canal Zone,
Panama and Colon.
The disposal of the garbage that is col-
lected daily in the Canal Zone settlements
and the cities of Panama and Colon is ac-
complished in several ways. The method
used in the two Panamanian cities is to dump
it in a waste place, where it is burned, leav-
ing pilesof ashes, and other refuse which serve
to build up and reclaim the land. The plan
largely obtaining in the Canal Zone towns
is to reduce the garbage as far as possible
to char and ashes by means of incinerators.
In some of the villages the garbage is hauled
to out-of-the-way spots and there burned and
buried: and in the towns bordering on the
Chagres River, the disposition is easily made
by dumping all refuse into that stream. At
one point, Porto Bello, it is taken out to sea
and dumped.
When measures for taking care of the gar-
bage were first instituted, they were entirely
in the hands of the Department of Sanitation.
On September 1, 1908, the work was taken
over by the Quartermaster's Department,
excepting in the cities of Panama and Colon,
but the cost continues to be paid from the
appropriation for sanitation. Up to January
1, 1907, street sweeping and garbage collect-
ing in the city of Panama were handled by
the Sanitary Department forces, but on that
date according to mutual agreement the work
was turned over to the Panama Government.
Under this arrangement the Department of
Sanitation pays to the Panama Government
the sum of $10,000 annually, which, it is esti-
mated, represents about one-half of the yearly
cost of garbage collecting and street sweeping.
In Colon one-half of the cost of collecting rhe
garbage is borne by the Panama Govern-
ment. and bills for the service are presented
quarterly. The work there, and in Cristobal,
is under the supervision of the local health
Garbage cans in two sizes, one 25 inches high
and 18 inches in diameter, and the other 19
inches high and 15 inches in diameter, costing
on an average about $2.28 and $1.49 each,
respectively, are furnished to all business
places and dwellings in Colon, and all native
houses, stores and .employes' quarters in the
Canal Zone settlements. In Panama, where
the street cleaning and garbage collecting are
in the hands of the municipal authorities, con-
tainers are provided by the city. These
cans are strongly made, the body of 22 gage
steel, and the lids and bottoms of 20 gage
steel. In addition, they are strengthened
with bands around the top and bottom.
East of Panama, forming a part of the out-
lying district of Trujillo. is a large tract of
swampy ground where all the garbage col-
lected in Panama and Ancon is dumped, the
fires in the slowly burning heaps continuing
day and night. As time passes the land is
gradually reclaimed and when a certain height
is reached the dump is extended eastwardly
into the swamp. Practically the same method
of handling prevails in Colon, as in Panama,
the site of the dumping ground, known as the
Ninth street dump. lying to the east of the
city, adjacent to the section shortly to be
filled in and improved. At this point also,
much land has been reclaimed.
All the larger towns in the Zone are pro-
vided with incinerating plants some purchased
in the States, others built on the Isthmus from

old material. The imported incinerators are
nearly all of a uniform type, but of varying
capacity, and most of them were made by the
Morse-Bulger Destructor Company of New
York City. Thetowns of Miraflores Paraiso,
Culebra. Empire, Las Cascadas, Gorgona,
Tabernilla and Gatun have plants of this
type, while those at Balboa, Corozal and
Pedro Miguel have been erected on the spot
from ready-to-hand materials. The incin-
erator at Empire, installed about a year ago,
offers the best type on the Isthmus of a small,
modern plant. The original plant, which it
replaced, was the first one in use on the Isth.
mus and had a capacity of 60 cubic yards
daily, as compared with 480 cubic yards
daily, the capacity of the new outfit, It is
now doing duty at Miraflores. At the time
the Empire plant became inadequate to take
care of all the garbage, the plan was tried of
carrying it away in railroad dump cars. The
method worked successfully and shipments
were made at the rate of about one car a day
at a cost no higher than that of incineration.
The location of the dumping ground, was
between Golden Green and l\est Culebra,
but as the Central Division decided to stop
dumping there this plan of disposing of the
garbage had to be abandoned and the pur-
chase of a new and much larger incinerator
was made necessary.
The rapid growth of Gatun has necessi-
tated better facilities for the disposal of gar-
bage, and a new incinerator has recently been
received to replace the small one now in use.
At present some of the garbage collected in
the vicinity of the spillway is thrown into the
The plant at Corozal, designed by the local
sanitary inspector, and the one at old Balboa,
are representative of the locally constructed
type. Their cost was small and they have
given excellent results. The Corozal plant
is built largely of discarded iron plates and
old French rails imbedded in concrete, with
a brick base for the smokestack. The interior
is divided into three compartments, an ash
box, a fire box and a receptacle for the garbage
which is supplied from the top by removing
a loose iron plate. The method ordinarily
employed in operating the incinerators is to
build a wood fire to assist in drying out the
garbage, which is usually in a sodden state
when first received. As fast as the garbage
dries it is raked over and made to fall into
the furnace, where it furnishes fuel to con-
tinue the process. The gas from the garbage
accumulates in another part of the furnace
and also assists in the general work of reduc-
tion. The ashes and noncombustible articles
fall into the ash box and from there are
carried away in wheelbarrows.
At Camp Elliott, there is an incinerator
operated by the camp authorities. At Bas
Obispo village, the garbage is carted away,
burned and then buried. At Gorgona, much
of the refuse was formerly disposed of by
dumping it into the Chagres River from a
platform built out into the stream. The
platform was washed away during the flood
of last year and refuse is:now destroyed in an
incinerator. At San Pablo, Frijoles and
Bohio, the Chagres River acts as scavenger.
Bohio, the largest of the three settlements, is
provided with a chute down which the gar-
bage is thrown. At Porto Bello, the plan was
adopted of taking the garbage out to sea. It
is carried to a small dock on the water front

built for the purpose and there dumped into
barrels for conveyance by boat to deep water.
Garbage collections from dwellings in the
Zone are made each morning, but the hotels
require two and three collections daily. In
the larger settlements, specially built wagons.
both of the wooden and iron box types, are used
in this work. The main expense in connection
with garbage disposal is its collection and
transportation, and it has been customary to
locate dumping grounds and incinerating
plants as near a common center between the
American and native sections of the towns, as
possible, to sase haulage. The refuse from
the Zone slaughter houses, which are under
the control of the Department of Public
Works. is taken care of by its own employes.
In Colon, all garbage is careufll; examined
before it is burned, and lumber, well-built
barrels or casks, bottles and other articles
having a commercial value are saved The
money realized from this source amounts in
some months to several hundred dollars and
reverts to the Department of Construction
and Engineering. Three of the employes on
the garbage force in Colon are paid by the
Atlantic Division. In the Zone, practically
the same salvage methods are employed and
a large amount of copper wire screening has
been realized on in this way. A lot of cast-
off clothing is destroyed in the incinerators,
but owing to the distance from a market and
to the necessity of a thorough disinfection
before shipment, there would be little or
no profit in handling it. In Panama, the
task of sorting over the garbage is undertaken
by the local authorities, and the moneys de-
rived therefrom revert to the municipality.
A statement of the number of garbage cans
emptied daily in the different settlements
during the month of July, 1910, follows:

Ptomaine Poisoning at Gatun.
The case of supposed ptomaine poisoning
at the European laborers' mess in Gatun on
the night of August 5 has been investigated
by the health authorities and no light has been
thrown on the probable cause of the poisoning.
Seventy-four laborers were taken ill soon after
the evening meal, and it was believed that the%
had been poisoned by some bad food. Sam-
ples of the meat, soup, and nine used at the
mess were examined chemically for metallic
and organic poisons with negative results.
Traces were found of a substance that in its
general reactions resembled a ptomaine, but
when the hydrochloride of this substance was
injected into a guinea pig there was no per-
ceptible effect. A bacteriological examina-
tion was made of the drinking aater used in
the mess, a sample of old and new wine, and
portions of the tea, meat and soup. but no
microorganisms of the food-poisoning group
were detected. Two patients were seen in the
hospital at Gatun who were still ill, and vom-
itus from one and a stool from the other were
examined for representatives of the food-
poisoning group, but none was found.

New Plant In the Pacific Di|ision Nearly Ready
for Serice-Method of Operrtion.
The hydraulic and dredging mt hiner) for
excavating the lower lock at Miraflorts and a
section of the Canal prism in the '.alley of the
Rio Grande below the lock, a total distance of
about 9.000 feet, will be placed in operation
very shortly. The %work % ill be handled as tao
separate operation'. the fir-t covering the
exca.ation in the lowv.er lock, and the second,
the removing of material from the channel
section. The lock excivatron %ill be accom-
plished firEt.
It is estimated that in the total area there
are about 7,800,000 cubic yards that can be
excavated by the hydraulic method. The
material consists of a dark loam, containing
about 15 per cent of sand and some deposits
of gravel in the old bed of the Rio Grande.
The general elevation of the area is eight feet
above sea level, and the average depth to be
excavated is 35 feet. About 1,000,000 cubic
yards of the material will be required for the
core of the west dam at Mliraflores, the re-
mainder will be dil-hareed behind dikes
to the east of the Canal, thereby reclaiming
four hundred and fifty acres of land in the
vicinity of Corozal. It is estimated that a
fill of 15 feet or more will be made in this
manner. The amount of rock in the section to
be excavated is placed at 1,602,000 cubic
yards. When the hydraulic operations are
concluded, the pits that are opened up will
be pumped dry and the rock taken out by
steam shovels.
The old bed of the Rio Grande crosses the
area of hydraulic excavation in three places.
To keep the river water out, a diversion
channel, with a bottom width of 60 feet and a
grade of two-tenths per cent, was completed
over a year ago. It parallels the Canal at a
distance of about 300 feet from the mouth of
Cardenas River to about opposite where the
Rio Grande again enters theold French charn-
nel, near Station 2190. The diversion left
the prism practically free of surface water,
but during the rise of the tides, salt water
from the sea backed up regularly as far as the
basin at the lock site, which was formed by
the removal of material by the suction dredge
Sandpiprr a year or more ago. Asa prelim-
inary step in the hydraulic work at this point,
a coffer dam has been constructed below the
lock site, %\ here the spur line from the Balboa
sand track to the pumping station crosses the
channel, thus preventing further entrance of
sea water from below it. At the north end
of the basin. a section of the original earth
,till beallo ed ti t remain separating the upper
from the lower locks. It was found that the
water left above this coffer dam was 25 feet
deep in places, and to bring the level down to
10 feet, at which depth the dredging units will
be able to operate to the best advantage, one
of the barge pumps has been set at work un-
watering tht- submcr'ied area to the desired
level. This is done by pumping the water
through a 20-inch discharge pipe over the
dike east of the prism into the Rio Grande
When the second operation, that below the
lower lock, is begun, two more coffer dams will
be built, one across the old Rio Grande chan-
nel just nurth of the pumping station, and the
ot her ac ross t he Canal channel at the southern
limit of the section to be excavated, near
where the old channel of the Rio Grande

crosses the prism for the third time. This
will effectually -hut off the entrance ol water
from any direction, but water aill continue to
back up from the Canal via. the Rio Grande
channel to the coffer dam north of the pump-
ing station, thereby furnishing a steady sup-
ply for the pumps.
The hydraulic plan involves two, methods,
as follows:
ia.i The disentegrating and sluicing of the
material into sumps, and
,hi The lifting an,] con, eating ul this disin-
tegrated material to the place olt deposit with
dredging machinery mounted on concrete
The central pumping station, called "Agua
Duke" from its proximity to Agua Dulce Hill,
lies uest of the Canal, not far from the middle
of the territory to be excavated. The machin-
ery is inclosed in a temporary superstructure,
divided into an engine room 50 by 100 feet on
the east side. and a boiler room 40 by 100 feet
on the west side. The station floor is 12 feet
above sea level The marhinery equipment
consists of four 1,000-horsepoiier horizontal
direct-connected triple expansion pumping
engines, built by Henr R. Worthington,
with 19, 30 and 50-jnch steam, and 24 .;-inch
water celinder-, and a 24.inch stroke. The
four units are lined up parallel to each other
at a distance of 25 feet from center to center.
Each pump is pro ided with a cast-iron 36-
inch suction pip_ reaching, v.ith the looti
v.alves, into a sump near by. excavated to
fve feet below extreme ilow warer. Each
engine has its uwn surface condenser,
built into the discharge pipe, and each con-
denser hasa combination dry and ner vacuum
pump. ,t elevation plus 20,'the pumps dis-
charge into a common delivery pipe from
which they arc separated by a 24-in,:h check
valve and a 24-inch gate valve. The delivery
pipe has teo bran.:ht.:, whii.h ,be mi at the
outside, aith a diameter ol 24 inches, and
increase in siz,- toward the center line of the
building, wherer- the,', unite in a "N" and con-
.iect with the 40-ini.h discharge main. Each
unit i- guarante,-d to supply ,500 gallIons of
salt water per minute it IS15 pounds pressure.
The builer roor equipment consists of tour
Babcock & \\ilcox water tube L.c.ilrrs of the
cross-drum, semimarine t,,pe, ant] each one
has 4.500 square leet of hi.ating surface .
They are designed for 150 pounds pressure
per square inch without superheat and are
set in unit; of one r-eah. Th..: team piping
is so arranged that an!, pump can be operated
by any boiler. On one side, the boilers have
oil furnace-;: un thi other side. ire: doors,
grates and a-h pit-, oc thant coal :can be used if
deemed expedient. The boilers are encaj-ed
in steel plates, instead of brick, protei.ted by
magnesia and tile insulation. The steel stack
i: 9 feet 6 inches in diamet.-r and rise. to a
height of 1510 i:-ct atruve rh. h-oilcr-. The
guaranteed erticiencyi Irom furnace to output
of the boilers is 95 million foout-pounds per
million B. t. u.'
Fuel oil is stored in tr o steel tanks situated
on the side of the hill back of the station, each
tank having a capacity of 2,000 barrels They
are directly connected with the Union Oil
Company's main, and th, ,oil i- fed through a
4-inch pipe, rr-arhing the burner, at a 50-
pound pressure.
The discharge main is 3,600 feet in length
and consists of 2.000 feet of 40-inch, 800 feet
of 32-inch, and S00 feet i.f 24-inch pipe. The
first 2,800 feet are lock-bar pipe, and

the remainder, spiral riveted pipe. The
lock-bar pipe, the product of the East Jersey
Pipe Company, was manufactured in 30-foot
lengths which are joined together by -;'-inch
forged steel flanges. Five air valves are
mounted at equal distances apart to prevent
rupture of the pipe and to allow the escape
of air while the pipe is being filled. The pipe
line is provided with 12 openings, in groups of
three, for the branch line connections. The
main extends nearly horizontally alongside the
approach track to the pumping station at the
foot of the Agua Dulce and Cocoli hills.
To prevent any upward movement it is
weighted don n at regular stages by several
tons of rock. Where bends in the pipe occur
the latter is firmly anchored in place by
cables held taut by rings set in concrete. In
one place the pipe line crosses a wooden trestle
to which it is fastened by iron belt rods. Cor-
rosion is guarded against by the application
of an asphalt compound.
The branch lines, or "take-offs," are made
of 16-inch spiral riveted steel, the whole of
this class of steel pipe used on the works,
having been furnished by the Abendroth &
Root Manufacturing Company of Newburgh,
N. V. Each branch line consists of a section
of twin pipe 800 feet long extending to the
monitors or giants, the four double lengths
thus employed aggregating 6,400 leet. They
are situated 800 feet apart, the first one
branching off at a point 1,200 feet from the
central pumping station. The arrangement
is such that one of the branch lines can be
made to serve, if necessary, as an addition
to an,, on.e of the others, thereby extending
the immediate zone of operations.
The hydraulic giants or monitors were made
bk the Joshua Hendy Company of San Fran-
cisco an.] are of the latest type used in mining
operation-. in California and other parts of the
\\est. Each of the eight giants weighs 1,500
pounds and constst of a base for attachment
to a 16-inch atec valve at the terminus of the
pipe line, a horizontal and vertical joint, and a
long conical reducing piece. The frictional
re-istance i- decreased by a ball-bearing, and
a weighted lever i. attached to control the
direction of the jet. A deflecting nozzle
i_ fitted to the discharge end of the giant,
which permits deflectioni through a small
angle without changing the position of the
main body. The tapering piece of the giant
is fitted on the inner side with two sets of
guide vanes which prevent a scattering or
rotary motion of the nater after it has issued
from the nozzle. The nozzles used will vary
from four to six inches in diameter according
to the character of the material in which they
are working. and.at full head the watercoming
through thet .-will exert a pressure of 130
pounds to the -square inch, the equivalent of
a ton and one-half of pressure against a bank
100 feet away within range of the deflectors.
As it is expected that the positions of the
monitors will be shifted frequently their bases
are of temporary construction. The giants
will operate from eight leet above to 45 feet
below mean tide, and will be made to wash
down the material in sluices which will carry
the water containing earth in suspension to
the sump where the barge pumps are at work
\hen it becomes necessary to move a barge
the giants will cut a new sump with a channel
leading into it through which one or more
units of the fleet may be floated. The banks
will be excavated as nearly perpendicularly

as possible, in order that I inchess may be cut
in them and the banks undermined so as to
cause the material to fall by gravity.
The centrifugal dredging pumps correspond
in total capacity to that of the steam recipro-
cating pumps, and are mounted on barges
built of concrete, one unit or pump to each of
the three barges A description of these
barges was published in THE CANAL RECORD
of February 9, 1910. Each unit consists of
an 18-inch single suction dredge pump direct-
connected to a Westinghouse 655-horse-
power induction motor. The runners for the
pumps are overhung and are especially long.
The manganese steel impeller on each pump
has five blades and is designed to handle
10,000 gallons of salt water per minute and
300 cubic yards of solid matter per hour, or,
in other words, 110 cubic feet of water to one
cubic foot of sedimentary material against a
varying actual head up to 60 feet while run-
ning at 480 r. p. m. Each pump, including
base plate elbow and valve, weighs approxi-
mately 30,000 pounds. The suction pipe on
each pump is 12 feet long and 20 inches in
diameter. The motors are of the 3-phase.
25-cycle type, 2 080-volt, with automatic
starting equipment. On the switchboard
panels are mounted indicating and integra-
ting wattmeters, oil-circuit breakers and the
time limit switches. Power will be supplied
by the Miraflores central station, and armored
submarine cables connect the motors to the
pole lines. For priming the pumps, a small
motor-driven vacuum pump will be installed
on each barge.
The crest of the dam at Miraflores will be
70 feet above sea level, making the total lift
for the hydraulic fill, 110 feet. The dredging
pumps will accomplish the lift to 60 feet, and
to secure the additional lift of 50 feet, an
18-inch motor-driven relay pump. identical in
type to the centritugal dredging pumps, has
been installed in a small pumping station on
the west bank about midway between the
dam and the central pumping station, and
will be attached to one of the dredging units,
being so arranged that the 20-inch suction
pipe may be directly connected to the dis-
charge pipe of the dredging pump. The
discharge pipe to the core of the dam has been
completed, with the exception of a small gap
which can be closed in a few hours.

Clerk and Typewriter Examinations.
It is desired to direct attention to the fact
that typewriting i.s no longer given as an
optional subject in connection with the exam-
ination for clerk, Isthmian Canal Service.
Optional subjects which may be taken in
connection with that examination are stenog-
raphy and typewriting, bookkeeping, rail-
road experience, general business experience,
and timekeeping experience.
A separate examination will be held for
typewriter, Isthmian Canal Service, which
will comprise the following subjects, with
relative weights on a scale of 100 as indicated:
Copying from rough draft, 20: copying and
spacing, 30; copying from plain copy. 20;
penmanship, 5; report writing, 10; arithmetic
(first grade), 5: general business experience,
10. The last subject will be rated on the
statements made in application and testi-
monials, corroborated, if necessary, by persons
named as references. It is expected to secure
from this examination eligibles qualified in
typewriting and having a general business

experience. Appointments will be made to
the position of clerk at $1,200 per annum.
Examinations for clerk and for typewriter,
both for the Isthmian Canal Service, will be
held on Sunday, September 18. as announced
in last week's CNAL RECORD. Information

Printing Plant Monotype.
A monotpe equipment, consisting of a
casting machine, No. 2751, and a keyboard,
No. 3SO,0 manufactured by the Lanston Mon-
otype Machine Company of Philadelphia, has
been installed in the Commission printing
plant at Mount Hope. It does the work of
several compouitors and will compose type
from 5 to 12-point any width up to 60 picas,
and will cast t ,pe from 5 to 36-point. The
Commission equipment contains two 8-point
molds,oneeach 6. land 12-point molds, with
the same number of matrix cases containing
matrices for 225 different characters, two
adjustable molds to cast from 14 to 36-point
type, inclusive, and a number of sort matrices.
The keyboard which is independent of the
casting machine, hai 276 kes, so arranged
that they will punch holes, at the tout-h of the
operator, in a paper roll, each hole represent-
ing a letter, figure or other character in the
type it is desired to use. When a job has been
completed, the paper roll is removed and put
on the casting machine. As the roll revolves
in its new position, the characters thereon are
cast into type from molten metal, by means of
an intricate but nicely adjusted automatically
operated mechanism. Each type is cast

separately and carried automatically into a
line, thence to its proper position on a "gal-
ley." Extra fonts of type, or "sorts" of the
styles adapted to the machine can be manu-
factured at any time. THE CANAL RECORD
and most of the job work in the Commission
printing plant are set on this machine.

Fatal Accident at Porto Bello Quarry.
Joseph Hobart, alias Joseph Rodgers, alias
John J. Moran, an American employed at the
Porto Bello quarry, was struck by a 500-
pound boulder as it rolled from the top of a
loaded car about 7.30 o'clock on Wednesday
morning, August 31, causing injuries from
which he died while enroute to Colon Hos-
pital on the tug Empire. He was 42 years of
age, unmarried, and came to the Isthmus
in 1905. He had served in the United States
Army, and entered the service of the Isth-
mian Canal Commission under the name of
Joseph Rodgers, although information re-
ceived from his cousin, Anna Clark of Scran-
ton, Pa gives his right name as John J. Mo-
ran. At Porto Bello, he went by the name
of Joseph Hobart.

Side Walls of Second Pair of Locks at Garun
The building of the side walls of the second
pair of locks at Gatun was begun on Septem-
ber 9, when one cableway, which had been
moved into position over the second chamber,
began delivering concrete into one of the,
movable steel wall forms, which had been
lowered from the upper locks. Work in the
upper locks is now confined almost entirely
to placing concrete in complicated forms
around steel work for the upper and inter-
mediate gates.
Backfilling behind the outer walls of the
first or upper locks is being pushed, in order
that all the work may be completed by Jan-
uary 1, 1911, to the point where the gate con-
tractors can begin their work without inter-
ference from lock construction.

Canal Work In August.
The grand total of Canal excavation in
August was 2,813,462 cubic yards, of which
2,757,990 cubic yards were charged to "work
excavation" and 55,472 cubic yards to
"plant." The dry excavation amounted to
1,775,072 cubic yards and was principally by
steam shovels. The dredges removed 1,038,-
390. cubic yards in addition to the amount
pumped into Gatua Dam by suction'dredges.
The progress on the locks_at.Gatun and

Pedro Miguel is referred to elsewhere in this
In the Atlantic Division, the total excava-
tion was 645,760 cubic yards. Of this total,
132,339 cubic yards were dry excavation and
the remainder was removed by the dredges
in the Atlantic entrance.
The total excavation in the Central Divi-
sion was 1,612,396 cubic yards, all but 278
cubic yards of which was chargeable to work
excavation. All records for excavation in a
rainy season month, both in this division and
Culebra Cut, were surpassed in August.
In the Pacific Division the total excavation
was 555,306 cubic yards, all but 30,337 cubic
yards of which was taken out by dredges at
the Pacific entrance.

Concentration of Useless Materials.
A warehouse for condemned stores is to be
built near the Depot Quartermaster's store-
house at Mount Hope where all sur-
plus. obsolete and unserviceable material
which has been used in the construc-
tion of the Canal wil! be kept until
final disposition is made of it. The plan
of procedure in connection with the turning
in oL this stock is set forth in the Chairman
and Chief Engineer's Cirrular No. 323-Re-
vised, dated August 3,. 191.1, published in THE
CANAL RECORD ni August 10, and is in line
with the recommendations contained in thr
report of the committee appointed on June 23,
1910, to consider the matter in its various
The amount of dead stock on the Isth-
mus is constantly increasing and it is esti-
mated that the quantity held by the Depot
Quartermaster alc Ine now amounts to between
$200,000 and S300,000 in value. Occasionally
small lot- of surplus or unserviceable material
are disposed of on the Isthmus by advertise-
ment and sale, but in the case of heavy ma-
chinery there is lit t'c or no local demand, and
possible buyers from abroad object to making
purchase until they has\ seen it. An instance
of the latter kind occurred not long ago. The
Central Division had among its surplus stock
three Lidgerwood unloaJers. The matter
was referred to the Gener.l1 Purchasing Officer
of the Commission in Washington to see if a
purchaser for them could be found. He
advised some time afterward that it was im-
possible to secure a satisfactory proposur ion
without first arranging for an inspection of
the machines.
The majority of the committee agreed that
it would be better to allow the plant toaccu-
mulateon the Isthmus until there is a sufficient
quantity to warrant prospective purchasers
coming here to look it over, than to establish
a place of storage in the United States. It is
believed that much of the material may be
sold to buyers in Central and South America,
and in that case, the transportation of it to
New York would be a useless expense.
The steady accumulation of dead stock has
occupied space that could be utilized for
storing live material, and for that reason, and
in order to assemble it in one place, the plan
of putting up a small building, which may be
enlarged as the occasion arises, was recom-
mended. It was first arranged to establish

this depot for condemned stores at Paraiso,
but the plan was abandoned later in view of
the fact that there is no storekeeper or force
of clerks at that point to look after it.
The building at Mount Hope will be 40 by
150 feet in size, constructed principally of old
materials, and will be situated alongside a
spur track extending through the storehouse
yard. It will rest on concrete footings and
will be floored with old French iron plates.
The dead stock will be properly cared for, and
machinery parts will be given a coat of lead
as a protection against rust.
The committee recommended that Congress
be petitioned to enact legislation to govern
the sale of these articles, similar to the law in
force which permits the sale of condemned
articles by the Engineering Corps of the
Pedro MI1guel Lock Work.
Work on the east side wall at the Pedro
Miguel Locks is advancing, and in sections
where slides from the east bank have given
some trouble since the advent of the rainy
season, it has reached a point where it will
serve as a retaining wall. Operations in the
center wall have been extended to the end of
the core, and in one or two places it has been
constructed to its ultimate height. Exca-
vation for the floor and culvert section in the
south part of the west chamber is practically
completed and most of the culverts and
about half of the lily forms in the east cham-
ber are in.

Alterations to SchoolbuLldlngs.
The building of a second story four-room
addition to the new Canal Zone high school
at Gatun %as begun on Friday, September 9,
with a force of thirty men under the Con-
structing Quartermaster. The work will be
advanced as rapidly as possible in order to
complete it by the time school opens on Octo-
ber 3. The addition of a four-room second
story to the Ancon school was started about
three weeks ago and is nearing completion.
The enlargement of the Empire school by
the construction of a two-story addition, con-
taining eight rooms, to the front of the present
building, is yet to be made. The plans have
been finished, and the carpenter work will
probably be commenced this week. The
addition will be practically a duplicate of the
old building. The front veranda will be
left intact, forming an open space between
the old and new parts, but the entrances will
be changed. Instead of two doors in front of
the school, which faces the east, there will be
only one, with a doorway on the north side and

an emergency doorway on the south side. The
8-foot veranda extending around the old part,
both upstairs and down, will be continued in
the addition. There will four stairways to
the upper floor, two in each part. The office
will occupy a corner room on the lower floor
of the addition. In the event the improve-
ments are not completed before the beginning
ol school, temporary arrangements for holding
school elsewhere will be made.

Steel Pier to be Remodeled and New Dock of
Reinforced Concrete to be Built.
Terminal facilities at Balboa. the Pacific
entrance to the Canal, will be increased by (1)
remodeling the steel pier now in use, and ,2)
by constructing a concrete dock along the
proposed anchorage basin north of the dock,
now used in sand unloading. This decision
has been reached after investigations con-
ducted by two committees appointed for
that purpose. The intent of the work is to
relieve the congestion in handling freight on
the present docks, but it will be carried on in
such a way, that the improvements made
will be useful in the permanent terminal that
will be provided, upon the completion of the
Canal, for the interchange of cargo. No
plans for permanent terminals have been
adopted as yet, but investigations are under
way at both the Atlantic and Pacific ends of
the Canal preparatory to the construction
of "safe and commodious harbors," as pro-
vided for by the Act of June 28, 1902.
The steel pier which is to be remodeled
was built for the Panama railroad and was
first used in 1899. It is supported on large
caissons spaced on 93-foot centers; longitudi-
nally, is 940 feet long, and will accommodate
three 3,000-ton ships at all stages of the tide.
It is provided with ten A-frame, swing boom,
traveling cranes of 112 tons capacity. In 1907,
this pier was increased from its original width
of 50 feet to 80 feet, to provide space for two
railroad tracks, supported by piles, running
the full length of the pier. The floor was
lowered, but the crane runway along the front
of the pier was not changed, so that all cargo
must now be lifted over the runway or plat-
form in and out of the ships. The cranes on
this pier are light, not in good condition, and
will not reach far enough over the ships to
take cargo from the middle hatches.
At the time the steel pier was enlarged two
wooden docks were erected immediately
north of it and joined to it. One of these is
320 feet long and is known as dock A. On
it are two 4-ton traveling cranes. The other
dock, known as dock B. is 658 feet long and
has six 4-ton traveling cranes, duplicates of
those on dock A. The total length of the three
docks is 1,910 feet. These cranes are designed
to take cargo from the middle hatches of
ships and deliver it under cover of the wharf.
The total length of the steel pier, and docks
A and B,is 1.910 feet, but there is no connec-
tion between them. such as makes it possible
to use the cranes interchangeably. A 15-ton
pillar crane at the sea end of the steel pier
handles heavy cargo. Five ships can be
berthed at the united docks at one time, and
in 1909, an average of 1,000 tons of cargo a
day was handled.
The roof of the steel pier will be raised to
accommodate cranes of the type now in use on
docks A and B; the steel trusses will be so
reinforced as to make them capable of carry-
ing 8 cranes and a concrete slab floor under the
crane runways level with the present floor.
Eight new cranes of the 4-ton type will be
installed in place of the I S-ton cranes. Thel
4-ton cranes on docks A and B will be remod-I
eled so as to permit a more rapid handling ofl
cargo between the legs than is now possible.
Work on the steel pier will be permanent int
The reinforced concrete dock will be 700
feet long and 57% feet wide. It is estimated

that it will cost about $130,000. and that the
dredging necessary to make a 300-foot chan-
nel to the dock will cost about $200,000.
This channel will be enlarged as the construc-
tion of the harbor at the Pacific entrance to
the Canal advances. Preliminary plans
provide for 8.200 cubic yards of excavation
for the piers for the dock, 7,000 cubic yards
of concrete in the piers, 2,100.cubic yards of
concrete in the floor, 624,000 pounds of steel
reinforcement, and 25,000 cubic yards of
backfilling. The estimate of dredging neces-
sary in front of the dock and leading to it is
2,385,000 cubic yards, but all of this will not be
undertaken at the present time. The char-
acter of the new dock and the location pro-
posed for it will make it part of the permanent
harbor improvements. The construction of
the dock and the dredging of its approach will
be done by the Pacific Division, and the cost
of the work will be charged to the appropri-
ation now available for reconstruction and
reequipment of the Panama railroad.

This record breaks all records with 10 un-
Day's Work of 17 Steam Shovels.
On September 2d, 17 steam shovels, working
in the Culebra construction district of the
Central Division, excavated 29,335 cubic
yards during the working day of eight hours,
an average of 1,726 cubic yards per shovel
for the day. During this time the shovels
were under steam 136 hours and were actually
working 90 hours and 55 minutes and were
waiting for cars 29 hours and 30 minutes. T)he
other delays were due to mining, cleaning
track after blasts, repairing shovels, moving
shovels back, slides and similar causes.
Examination for Colored Teachers.
An examination for eligibility to appoint-
ment as teacher in the colored schools will be
held on Thursday, September 22, at the Ancon
schoolbuilding. Sessions from 8 to 12 and
1 to 5; subjects, arithmetic, American history,
grammar, hygiene, geography, reading, wri-
ting, spelling, and method. Spelling and

and are operated by small electric pumps.

Work of Central Division Shovels In August.
During the month of August the total
amount of material excavated in the Central
Division was 1,612,396 cubic yards, of which
434,775 cubic yards were classified as earth
and 1,177,621 cubic yards as rock. Of this
quantity, 1,602,738 cubic yards were removed
by steam shovels; 4.844 cubic yards were
blasted and washed out by high water; 278
cubic yards were removed by hand, and 4,536
cubic yards were pick and shovel excavation
by contract.
The high record of the month was made by
shovel No. 208, working 27 days in the Culebra
District, which excavated 57,292 cubic yards
of rock and earth. The second best record
was made by shovel 223, working 26 'lays in
the Culebra District ,which excavated 49,739
cubic yards of rock.
The best record for a shovel of the 70-ton
class was made by shovel No. 108, working
27 days in the Chagres District, which exca-
vated 41,928 cubic yards of earth.
Shovel No. 202, working in the Culebra
District, made the high record for one day by
excavating 3,553 cubic yards of earth on
August 16. Shovel No. 108, working in the
Chagres District, excavated 1,640 cubic yards
of earth on August 8 and 18, the high records

Vol. IV., No. 3.


Comptroller of Currency Holds Clause in Con-
tracts Null.
The Comptroller of the Treasury, has ren-
dered a decision to the effect that the form of
contract which has been in use by the Com-
mission since 1907 does not provide for liqui-
dated damages, but that the clause supposed
to cover this subject is in fact a penalty
clause and permits of charging only actual
damages against the contractor. The ques-
tion was raised by J. H. Leonard & Co. to
whom a contract for plumbers' supplies was
let, and who were assessed $150.93 liquidated
damages for failure to deliver on time The
cause in the form of contract referred to
Article II. The above materials and sup-
plies properly packed at the contractor's
expense shall be delivered as above on or
before datee. If not delivered on or before
the said date one-tenth of one per cent of the
total cost of the undelivered materials and
supplies shall be deducted for each day's
delay, as liquidated damages for the delay,
until satisfactory delivery or performance
shall have been made, or until such time as the
Commission may reasonably procure similar
materials or articles elsewhere *"".... Pro-
vided, however, that delays caused by strikes,
acts of God, or public enemies, to the extent to
which the same in the judgment of the Com-
mission may justify the delay, or delays which
cause no damage or inconvenience to the
Government, when expressly waived by the
Comnm.asion, shall not be charged against the
Contractor hereunder."
The Comptroller decided on June 6, 1910,
that the clause printed above does not provide
for liquidated damages, and on appeal from
this decision reaffirmed his decision of the
previous date, holding"
"Either Article II provides for liquidated
damages or it does not. If it does not, then
it is a stipulation for a penalty under which
only the actual provable damages are recov-
erable, but if it be in fact a valid provision
for liquidated damages, then it should be
enforced as written, upon proof of the viola-
tion of the contract and without proof of the
damages actually sustained. Whether or not
said provision is one for liquidated damages,
as expressed, and what is the intent of the
parties with respect thereto, must be deter-
mined by a proper legal construction of the
language used by them in expressing that
"The proviso that 'delays ahich cause no
inconvenience or damage to the Government,
when expre:sly waived by the Commission,
shall not be charged against the contractor,'
is diametrically opposed to one of the basic
principles underlying the liquidation of dam-
ages, viz., that the parties by their action in
agreeing upon a measure ol damages in liqui-
dation of the uncertain damages, have settled
in advance the charge to be made on account
of such damages arising from delays for which
the contractor is. chargeable. and thereby have
closed the door to the admirsion of evidence
as to whether or not said damages nere
actually sustained. As said in the decision
sought to be reconsidered and revised, such
a clause is utterly antagonistic to a liquidated
damage clause. The damages are liquidated
or not liquidated upon the facts and proba-
bilities in the minds of the parties at the time
the contract is executed, and do not de-
pend upon the happening of such a future
fact as whether the Government needs the
things contracted for or does not need them
at the time specified for them to be furnished.
The facts, supposed to exist at the time the
contract is made. govern. I amof the opinion
that the clause "or delays which cause no

damage or inconvenience to the Government,
when expressly waived by the Commission,"
effectually nullifies the provision for per diem
deductions on account of the contractor's
delays in deliveries. said to be as 'liquidated
damages.' * * *"
It is estimated that from S100.000 to S150,-
000 have been deducted from contractors'
bills in accordance with the "liquidated
damages" clause of the contract, which is now

Clerks Without Knowledge of Typewriting.
CuLai.A. C. Z.. September 10. 1910.
It has,Letn the practice of the United States Civil
Se-.'ice Commission LO maintain fie registers of clerks
for appointment to apply on requisitions from the
Isthmus. as fotlolus: Clerks with knowledge of type-
riltingi clerks with business experience; clerks with
railroad experience, clerks smith umekeeping experience;
clerks aith bookkeeping experience. In connection
itLh the majority of requisiuons forwarded for clerks
during the pa-t year, knowledge of typewriting has
been specitied. As the result, this particular register
has been exhausted, and difficulty has been experienced
in fUing reiui.ilions. while eligibles with other quali-
fications have rad little chance of appointment. It is
requested that in tilling future vacancies. requisitions
be made for clerk wiLhout knowledge of typewriting
whenever the intere.Lts of the service will permit.

Testing the Hydraulic Plant.
The new hydraulic plant of the Pacific
Division is in partial operation, but the work
so far has been principally in the nature of
tests. The dredging pump on one of the
barges has been excavating a sump in which
the barge can settle down, the material being
forced through the pipe into the core of the
west dam at Miraflores. One of the monitors
has also been in service washing down the bank
at this point. The dredging equipment on
the second barge is nearly ready for duty.

New P. R. R. Time Table.
Time table No. 7, which appears on another
page of this issue of THE CA NAL R CORD, goes
into effect on the Panama railroad on Sunday,
September 25. The cutting off of the stops
at Lion Hill and Ahorca Lagarto. and the
use of the new line between Paraiso Junction
and Corozal Junction hasenabled a shortening
of the schedule in the care of the weekday
trains, Nos. 2, 4. 5, 6 and 7. No change is
made, however, in the time of trains Nos. 3
and 5, or of any of the Sunday trains.
Train No. 2 leaving Panama at 6.30 a.m.

will be due to arrive in Colon at 8.45, twenty
minutes earlier than usual. Train No. 4
leaving Panama at 10.45 a.m., is due at Colon
at 1 p.m., instead of 1.15. Train No. 5 leav-
ing Colon at 10.30 a.m., is scheduled to reach
Panama at 12.45 p.m., instead of 1 o'clock,
as at present. Train No. 6 leaving Panama
at 1.30 p.m., will be due in Colon at 3.45, five
minutes earlier. Train No. 7 leaving Colon
at 4.35 p.m., will reach Panama at 6.50 p.m.,
shortening the time by 10 minutes.
New Gatun has been added to the list of
stations anda new depot for that point has just
been completed. The regular daily passen-
ger trains will not stop there, but provision
has been made for running a shuttle train
five times each way daily, except Sunday,
when two of the south bound trains, one
leaving Colon at 10 a. m., and the other at 7
p. m. will stop on flag. The time of the
shuttle train has been made a part of the
regular train schedule.

Increase of Work at Gorgona-CocoU Shop of the
Pacific Division Closed.
The effect of Circular No. 343 published in
THO CANAL RECORD of August 31, and of
Circular No. 349 published on September 7,
is to concentrate all manufacture of material
for mechanical equipment in the shops of the
Mechanical Division at Gorgona and Pedro
Miguel. The concentration is made in the
interest of economy during the construction
of the Canal, and is only temporary, because
the water of Gatun Lake will cover the site
of Gorgona shops by January, 1914. and the
shops at that place will therefore be aban-
doned before that time. The site for a cen-
tral machine shop, to be used after the com-
pletion of the Canal in making repairs to
marine and railroad equipment and to lock
operating machinery, will be determined later.
Cocoli shop at Miraflores Locks has been
closed, but field repair shops will not be
abandoned. Steam shovel repairs will con-
tinue at Empire shop, as heretofore, and re-
pairs to marine equipment will be made at
the Mount Hope and Balboa shops.
The work done at Cocoli shop has been the
hostling of locomotives, and light running re-
pairing to Pacific Division equipment in use
at Pedro Miguel and Miraflores Locks. The
transfer of this work to Pedro Miguel will not
necessitate the employment of additional
foremen at Pedro Miguel, and it will effect
an appreciable saving in the cost of super-
intendence, because it will make possible
the abolition of the Cocoli shop positions of
master mechanic, shop foreman, carpenter
foreman, and car repair foreman. It is
believed that it will also effect a saving in cost
of labor, power, lighting, maintenance, and
transportation of employes to and from Cocoli.
No machinery will be taken out of the Cocoli
shop, however, until it is certain that the new
plan is more economical. The changes out-
lined in Circular No. 349, do not involve the
abandoning of steam shovel repairs in the
field at MNiraflores and Pedro Miguel. norclo--
ing the small repair shop at Ancon quarry.
Gray iron castings to the amount of 607,725
pounds were made at Gorgona foundry in
August, the largest output for one month
since the foundry was opened. The castings
included all kinds of work, but the largest
orders were caisson seats, culvert liners, and
semi-steel washers for anchorage bolts for the
locks, and propellers for marine equipment.
In the brass foundry also, all records for output
were broken in August, the total weight of
the castings being 64,691 pounds.
The concentration of mechanical work has
already begun to affect the output of Gorgona
shops and foundry. In the first ten days of
September, 300 manufacturing orders were
received. The force has been increased about
ten per cent, the number now being 846 white
men, including skilled artisans and adminis-
trative force, and 1,320 laborers of all kinds,
a total of 2,166. Since the first of the month,
a night force of 200 men has been kept at work
in the machine shop, blacksmith, boiler, and
erecting shops, and by this arrangement it is
possible to work 16 hours a day on important
rush orders without working any artisans
Death of Col. J. R. Shaler.
Col. James R. Shaler. formerly General
Superintendent of the Panama railroad, died
at the home of his brother in Ocean City,

N. J., on September 7, in the eightieth year
of his age. He was appointed Superintendent
on the Isthmus in November, 1895, was pro-
moted to General Superintendent in 1898, and
left the service in May, 1904. During this
period he was in direct charge of all the com-
pany's interests on the Isthmus, both railroad
and steamship.

Fatal Accident on Gatun Labor Train.
John J. Coit, a white American, was killed,
and a West Indian negro was seriously in-
jured in an accident to the Gatun-Culebra
labor train, near Mamei, on the morning of
September 21. About 200 feet from Bridge
47 on the main line of the Panama railroad,
engine No. 500, hauling the labor train, ran
into a cow. The locomotive left the track
and turned over on the south bound main
line track. The engineer, John J. Coit, was
killed instantly, and the negro fireman sus-
tained serious injuries. The south bound
track was clear by 8.45 o'clock in the fore-
John J. Coit was 35 years of age, a resi-
dent of Los Angeles, Cal., and had been on
the Isthmus since July, 1908. He was a
locomotive engineer in the employ of the
Atlantic Division, and his residence in the
Canal Zone was at Culebra. He was unmar-
ried. A sister, Mrs. C.J. Stanton, 418 Solano
avenue, Los Angeles, Cal., survives him.

Building Improvements.
The addition to the Empire schoolbuilding
was begun on Friday. September 23. and the
work will be advanced as rapidly as possible.
The improvements will not be completed
prior to the opening of school on October 3,
but the plans for beginning school work on
that date will be carried out. It is proposed
to use the old part while building operations
are going on.
The work of convening building No. 2 at
Miraflores. formerly a French labor barrark,
34 by 50 feet in size. into a commisar', build-
ing is in progress. It xill be reads for occu-
pancy in about three v.eeks

Lock Building in Pacific Section.
A new record was establi-hed in the locks
of the Pacific Di vision last week, when 1 ,300
cubic yards were laid at Pedro Miguel and
5,048 cubic yards at Miraflores. a total of
The auxiliary plant at Mirallores consists
of eight concrete mixers, two 2-cubic yard,
five .2-cubic ',ard, threeof w which were recently
received fr,_m the States, and one 1a-cubic
)ard. Tuoof the ,1-yard mixersare now in the
shop undergoing repairs. A part of the out-
put of the 2-cubic yard mixecrs is used in the
center wall construction and is carried into
the lock in a Western dump car, eight yards
at a time. The remainder of the concrete
from these mixersiscarried in bu.kt.-s to %where
:he east berm crane .-an dump it into the east
side wall. Two of the small auxiliary mixers
are situated near the east side of the forebay,
close enough to the edge of the lock to permit
the output being sent down a chute into the
head wall. As soon as the work at that point
is completed they will be removed to a similar
position near the west side of the iorebay to
build the head %allof the west chamber. The
other small mixers are employed in extending
the floor and culvert section in the east
The east head wall is nearly, finished, a
section of the east side wall is read'.' for the
culvert forms, and a piece of the batter or
foundation section of the center wall is in
place. Before operations on the west side
wall can be begun, a sloping'ledge of rock and

earth extending along the west chamber will
have to be removed, and steam shovels will
be set at this work some time during the coming
month. This will necessitate taking up the
construction track that now extends along
this ledge down into the lock, but a new track
into the lock directly out of the north foreba5,
will be laid.

New Line Between San Francisco and Balboa, and
New Service of Old Line.
A new line of steamers will begin a fort-
nightly service between San Francisco and
Balboa (Panama), with San Pedro (Los Ange-
les) as a port of call, on October 1, when the
first vessel will sail from San Francisco. This
is due at Balboa on October 15. The ships
will be operated by the California and Atlan-
tic Steamship Company, Bates and Chese-
brough' agents, San Francisco.
The Panama Railroad Company has grant-
ed to the new line regular through billing
privileges on coastwise traffic on the same
terms and conditions as those held by the Paci-
fic Mail Steamship Company. The principal
concessions thus made are 70 per cent of the
through freight rate on coastwise traffic, and
the waiving of wharfage, craneage, lighterage,
and basin charges at Balboa on such, traffic.
Coal will be sold the ships at Balboa at the
cost price delivered in Colon, plus $2.25 freight
charge per ton for haulage across the Isthmus.
The steamships chartered for the Pacific
service are the Mackinaw, George II'. Fenwick,
and Slinley Dollar, all steel, single screw
steamers. The Mackinaw will be equipped
with cold storage space for 200 tons, with the
expectation that arrangements may be made
to supply California fruits and vegetables to
the Isthmian Canal Commission.
In order that the ships on the Pacific may
not have to depend entirely on the Panama
railroad ships for carrying freight from the
State.- to Colon, the steamer San Mateo has
been chartered by the new company to carry
freight from Philadelphia and New York to
Colon, and returning, to take and deliver
freight at New Orleans and Charleston. The
itinerary will take 45 days.
The Pacific Mail Steamship Company will
establish a direct freight service between San
Francisco and Balboa with sailings from both
ports every 15 days. The first ship in this
new service will leave San Francisco on Septem-
ber 3u, and leave Balboa on October 23. The
present service, with calls in Central America
and Mexico, v.ill be continued with ships
sailing every ten days.
An article outlining an improvement in
terminal facilities at Balboa was published in
THE CANAL RECORD of September 14. These
improvements will be hastened as much as
possible in order that the increased business
at Balboa may be handled expeditiously.
The remodeling of the steel pier and the in-
stallation on it of better cranes will be begun
at once, and the new cranes will be contracted
for in such time that they may be installed as
the work on the pier advances. Work on the
concrete dock that is to be constructed south
of the present sand dock will be pushed as
much as possible, but it is not likely that it
can be completed within nine months.

On August 31, there were 35,867 employes actually at work on the Canal and the Panama
railroad, and of this number, 29,950 were Canal employes. The gold force on the Canal
work, composed almost entirely of white Americans, was 4.445. No labor recruiting
was necessary during the month.
The report of the Chief Quartermaster for August shows that the number of family quar-
ters occupied by "gold" employes was 1,708, which is 25 more than in July, and the occu-
pants numbered 5,180. an increase of 77. Of this number, 1,756 were women, and 1,718
children. Bachelor quarters occupied by "gold" employes numbered 1,878 and the
occupants numbered 3,282, of whom 121 were women. The family quarters, occupied by
European laborers numbered 281, and the occupants, 903: bachelor quarters, 116, and
the number of occupants, 5,610. The family quarters occupied by West Indians numbered
1,075, and the occupants. 3,564: bachelor quarters. 260, and the number of occupants, 5,077.

A Year at the Hotels and Labor Messes.
The annual report of the Subsi.tence De-
partment of the Isthmian Canal Commission
for the fiscal sear ending June 30, 1010). shoks
that 18 hotels, in addition to the Hotel Tivoli,
19 European laborer-' m-ises. and 20 common
laborers' kitchens %inre in operation, an in-
crease of one hotel, anid a derreasc of one
kitchen, as compared with the previous fis-
cal year.
The total revenue derived from the line
hotels, messes and kitchens during 1909-10
was SI,350.ti5.05, a decrease of S168,20.0S.
as compared with the preceding year. The
total expenses were $248,313.71, a decrease of
$46.602.1S from the year 1908-09. The
revenues fell off 11 per cent, but the expenses
fell off 15.7 per cent, the percentage of expense
to revenue being one per cent less for 1909-10
than for the previous year. The expense
for salaries and wages was $191,438.11, as
compared with $236,955.52 for 1908-09, a
decrease of 19.5 per cent. The proportion of
pay roll to revenue was 14.1 per cent, as com-
pared with 15.5 per cent for the year before
a decrease of 1.4 per cent.
The total number of meals served at Com-
mission hotels was 2,176,451. The cost of
supplies was 24.87 cents and the expense was
6.23 cents a meal, an increase in cost of sup-
plies of 1.33 cents a meal, and a decrease in
expense of 0.69 cents a meal, making a total
increase of 2.02 cents a meal, which has gone
into food, and represents a total increase of
$43,9t,4.31 in food supplies, as compared with
the preceding year.
The total number of rations furnished in
European laborers' messes was 1,092,487,
which cost 30.18 cents a ration for food, and
6.66 a ration for expense. The number of
rations served decreased by 78,690; the food
cost decreased 0.77 cents a ration, and the
expense decreased 0.60 cents a ration. The
number of rations served in the common
laborers' kitchens was 781,746 at a cost of
22.66 cents each for food, and 4.63 cents each
for expense. The number of rations showed
a decrease of 616,746, as compared with the
previous year. The cost of supplies was 0.14
cents a ration greater, but the cost of service
was 0.09 cents a ration less. There has been a
constant decrease in the number of laborers
taking their meals in Commission kitchens,
the attendance in June, 1910, being about
50 per cent less than for the corresponding
month in 1909. The average daily attend-
ance during June, 1910 in the line hotels was
1,915; in messes, 3,178, and in kitchens. 1,496.
The following table shows the relative
value of food consumed each day by each
person in the Commission hotels, the costs
being computed by taking periods in each
month and averaging them. The actual cost
would be about six per cent less.

In addition to the foregoing, the consumption of ice
amounted to 3.45 pounds each day.
The average weight of the ration supplied

each person daily in the European laborers'
messes was found to be approximately 4.91
pounds, and the average value 29.58 cents.
This does nor include 1.38 pounds of ice con-
sumed pir capital each day, which cost 056
cents. The average weight of the ration
supplied each person daily in the laborers'
kitchens mas found to be approximately 4.41
pounds, with a value of 22.26 cents. It is
a coincidence that the net weight of the
ration furnished the European laborer is
exactly equal to the gross ,eight of the United
States Army garrison ration, and the net
weight of the ration furnished the negro la-
borer is exactly equal to the gross weight of
the United States Army field ration.
The year's operations showed a loss on
hotels of $22,168.71, a profit on the European
laborers' messes of $34,504.86, and a profit on
the laborers' kitchens of $21,211.97. The
operation of the Hotel Tivoli showed a profit
for the year of S4,5 74.23.

Plans for Controlling the Water Level of rMilra-
lores Lake.
Plans have been approved for the spillway
by means of which the water in Miraflores
Lake, between the locks at Pedro Miguel and
Miraflores, will be regulated. The spillway
v.ill consist of a straight concrete dam con-
necting the east wall of Miraflor.s Locks with
the side hill. as indicated in the location plan
on this page, aith regulating gates of steel
mounted on the crest of the dam. The dam
will be 432 feet long on the crest and will con-
tain approximately 75,000 cubic yards of con-
crete. Further details are contained in the
drawing. reproduced herewith, and in the fol-
lowing abstract of the report accompanying
the approved plans:
Proper control of Miraflores Lake involves
not onl,, passing the insignificant flow of the
tributary strcams-Rio Grande, Rio Pedro
Nlieuel, Rio Cocoli, and Rio Caimitillo-but
the disposal of the large amount of water
which would reach the lake from the higher

should an accident permit an unobstructed
flow to take place through one of the twin
locks at PLdro Miguel.
Careful .tudJies have been made of the
quantity which may reasonable be expected
to flow into Miratdores Lake if this contin-
gency should arise, and the spillway pro-
posed, with a capacity at maximum permis-
sible lake level of about 92,000 second feet
will dispose of the probable discharge with-
out damage to the earth dams The quantity
flowing into the lake is not susceptible to
precise determination, results ranging from
75,000 second feet to 116,000 second feet being
obtained. mith the true value probably be-
tween 90,000 and 100,000 second feet, but if
it is found that the flow is greater than can be
passed by the .pill.\ay withouir raising the
lake to an undesirable level, the culverts of the
Miraflores Locks can be utilized. As it is
improbable that they would be (ailed on to
carry more than 8,0001 second feet, and as
their capacity %ill be about 25,000 second
feet, no damage should result from such
emergency use. The discharge would have
to pass the spillway for only the short time

occupied in closing the emergency dam at
Pedro Miguel. The flow would begin to di-
minish as soon as the first wicket of the dam
should be dropped, and would cease when the
closure should be completed.
The maximum level to which Miraflores
Lake may be permitted to rise is determined
by the lock walls with copings at elevation
58.67 feet above sea level. Allowing a free-
board of 1.5 feet gives a maximum lake level
at elevation 57.17.
The spillway consists of approach walls,
connecting the dam nith the lock on one side
and the natural rock hill on the other, the
spillway dam, and the discharge channel.
The spillway dam will be a straight concrete
dam of ogee section with its crest at elevation
38.67 feet above mean sea level, 16 feet below
the ordinary level of Mirailores Lake. The
crest will be divided into eight bays, each 45
feet wide, by the end abutments and seven in-
termediate piers and the bays will be closed
by rising gates of the Stuoney type, in all
respects like those designed lor the spillway
at Gatun. The piers will be so designed that
the caissons for closing of gate openings may
be used interchangeably at both spillways.
The downstream or ogee face of the dam
will be formed by a parabolic curve convex
upward, and a circular arc concave up-
ward. The parabolic part is exactly like
the corresponding part of the Gatun spillway
dam except that the curve is carried a little
further. (An article on the dam of the Gatun
spillway was published in THE CAN.Lu RECORD
of September 8, 19UQi The overfloumin

Central Division Eicavarion in September.
The cross section estimate of excavation in
the Central Division for the month of Septem-
ber is as follows-

Empire disinct 04
Culebra distLnct 065 03'
Pedro Miguel district ... ... 62.012
Total 5;4 2.38
All of this material was removed from the
Canal prism, no excavation having been done
outside of the prism during the month. \With
the exception of August, 1910, the preceding
month, this is the largest aggregate amount
of material removed from the Canal prism
within the limits of the Central Division dur-
ing any month of the rainy season The
average amount excavated per day 162,969
cubic yards.l during the entire month of
September, 1910, is the greatest daily average
ever made in the Central Division during an
entire month in the rainy season. The next
highest daily average for an entire month
during the rainy season was that made in
August, 1910-59,718 cubic yards. There
were 25 working days in September, 1910. as
against 27 in August, 1910
Of the total shown above there was exca-
vated in Culebra Cut, 1,339.948 cubic yards,
and in the Gatun Lake region, or Chagres
district, 234,290 cubic yards. The total ex-
cavation in the Central Division to October
1, and remaining to be accomplished on that
date, are as follows:

Footbridges Across Spillway Dams.
Plans for the footbridges across the tops of
the concrete dams of Gatun and Miraflores
spillways have been approved. These bridges
will be built of steel girders and will weigh
about 215 tons. The largest pieces will weigh
about 4,300 pounds and will therefore be
easily removable. The purpose of the bridges

is to give easy access to the regulating gates
and the piers which support them. and to
provide a convenient means of crossing the
spillway s.
Vacation in Guatemala.
Guatemala City has been included in the
places where emploes- of the Commis- ion and
Panama Railroad Company may spend their
annual leavr. The city is 4S,78 feet above
sea level, an. no quarantine exists against
any ol the ports in Guatemala
Panama Srreet Veork Nearly Completed.
Street improvements in Panama, author-
ized under the Congressional appropriation
of S300,000 for sanitary improvements in the
cities of Panama and Colon, are approaching
completion. A small amount of work re-
mains to be done on L) ons street, along which
the new intercepting sewer extends. and also
r.n Thirt',-second and Thirty-fourth streets.
The short street, known as La Neveria,
branching off from Caledonia road to the left
just before the road turns toward the Sabanas,
will be improved for a distance of about 450
feet, which will bring It to the end of the
built-up section. La Independencia street,
which parallel- the Panama railroad in the
district of Santa Cruz, will be joined to the
Caledonia road near the viaduct. This is
closed territory at present, and to open a road
through it sill necessitate the removal of a
two-story wooden tenement.
Excavation for the new storm sewer cross-
ing Central avenue at Lyons street has- been
completed, and concreting around the sewer
is well advanced. It will form a junction
near the railroad yard with an old masonry
sewer extending to the sea. The walls of
the old sewer were found to be in good con-
dition, but it has been necessary to deepen
the opening all the way through to conform
with the size of the new sewer. On account
of the close quarters, only five or six men can
beemployed on this work at one time.
An application has been made, by a local
real estate firm, for the opening of two ad-
ditional streets in that section of Panama
lying near Nineteenth street, west of Ancon
Concrete in Culebra Cur.
Before the work of placing concrete in the
sides of Culebra Cut is begun the question of
what parts, if any, should be protected will
be investigated. A board consisting of Com-
missioners Hodges, Gaillard and Rousseau
has been appointed for this purp,.,e.
Culvert Forms at Miraflores Locks.
Steel form, of a different tI pe from those
used in the side wall culverts at Pedro Miguel
Locks, will be employed in the construction
of the side culverts at Miraflures Locks.
They will be a modification of the t5 pe suc-
cessfully used at Gatun, and will resemble a
horseshoe when in position. At Miraflores. the

forms will be moved entire as the work pro-
ceeds, two sections at a time, by means of a
traveler operated on the inside. The upper
sections of the forms employed in the Pedro
Miguel operations can be utilized for the new
ones at Miraflores. but the lower sections
were constructed for the purpose at Gorgona
Rock Slide at Baa Obispo.
A slide has developed in the east bank of
Culebra Cut at Bas Obispo, where a quantity
uf rock estimated at 75,000 cubic yards is
moving towards the Canal prism. This slide
is on the berm at 95 feet above sea level, and
the break follows the lines of a fault in the
Zone Roads Aid Agricultural Development.
There has been considerable increase in the
agricultural development of the Canal Zone,
wherever roads have been built giving acces-
sibility to a market. This development is
especially marked in the vicinity of Empire,
where several modern roads converge. In the
valley of the Masambi River, through which
a macadamized road has been built as far as
the Las Cascadas plantation, a number of
West Indians have begun farming in a small
way. Their principal crops are yucca, yams
and yampe, the latter a vegetable of a reddish
color resembling the yucca root in appearance,
and all three articles are said to yield well in
this section, when under proper cultivation.
The land in the valley appears to be especially
suited to the raising of yucca and many flour-
ishing patches of this tuber may be seen along
t he road.
A small quantity of sugar cane, together
with bananas, papayas and other fruits, is
erown, and in common with the other pro-
ducts, finds ready sale at Empire and Culebra,
the nearest markets. Practically all the
produce raised in this section is brought to
town on pack animals, which cross the Cut at
Empire on the suspension bridge. As show-
'ng the extent of this traffic, in one hour on a
recent weekday morning, 29 pack animals
passed over the bridge into Empire.
WVest of Empire and in its immediate vicin-
ity the country is being settled rapidly. There
is a fairly good road as far as the rock quarry.
and two or three short roads running in other
directions. The roads from Chorrera join
t he macadamized highway near the rock quar-
ry, but it is a mere trail and of little value as a
means of communication during the rainy
season, and on this account the development
along it is proceeding slowly.
The Panama-Corozal road has aided to a
large degree the development if the land
near by. When the road was first completed
there were ,,nl. a few scattered houses along
the route. Today, 25 or 30 ma, be counted.
The most of them are tenanted by West
Indians who cultivate small patches of ground
on which they grow sugar cane, corn and yams
for their own use,and also for sale in the Pan-

Increases Shown In Various Departments of Pos-
tal and Customs Service During 1909-10.
The revenue derived from the sale of post-
age stamps and postal cards at the seventeen
post-offices in the Canal Zone during the fiscal
year ending June 30, 1910 amounted to
$83,475.60. In addition, the sum of $92.13
was collected for second class mail matter,
making the total income from this source
$83,567.73, as compared with $74,241.87 for
the preceding fiscal year, an increase of $9.-
Registered letters and parcels to the number
of 151,622 were handled, consisting of 29,082
domestic letters, 5,766 domestic parcels,
41,114 foreign letters, 1,598 foreign parcels,
71,971 official letters and parcels registered
free, and 2.091 letters and parcels reregistered
free. Approximately 45 per cent of the regis-
tered matter went under official frank. In
the post-offices at Ancon and Cristobal
113,429 pieces of foreign registered mail were
handled. Of this number, 8,778 pieces
passed through the Ancon post-office for
Panama and Central and South American
points, and 104,651 pieces through the Cris-
tobal post-office for points in the United
States, the West Indies and Europe. There
were 1,009 despatches of mail from the Cris-
tobal post-office during the year, including
several despatches of bullion direct to Eng-
land, and 72,670 pouches, sacks, and regis-
tered sacks of mail were handled by the rail-
way mail messengers.
There were 207,220 money orders issued
during the year. representing a %alue of $5,-
228,562.15, and the fees aggregated $22.980.-
96. The number of money orders sold ex-
ceeded the sales of the previous fiscal year by
26,831, and the amount by $61,812.69. The
average amount of each order was lower,
however, being $25.23, as compared with
$28.84 for the previou- year. Orders drawn
payable in the United States and foreign
countries, except Martinique, amounted to
$3,976,891.63. Orders drawn payable in the
Canal Zone aggregated $1,247,610.22 in value.
and in Martinique, where a postal convention
was concluded on August 1. 1909, the value
of orders drawn amounted to $4,060.30.
Under this convention the settlement of
accounts is made directly between the re-
spective postal administrations. Zone post-
offices are extensively used as depositories
and the amount of money orders drawn in
favor of the remitter and made payable at
the office of issue on June 30, 1910, was
There were handled during the year 1.023
pieces of unclaimed registered matter, and
32,397 pieces of unclaimed mail matter. Of
the latter class, 10,798 were domestic letters
and parcels, and 21,599 were foreign letters
and parcels. A total of 1,801 misdirected
letters was advertised in THE CANAL RECORD,
and about 60 per cent of this number were
delivered or forwarded to the addressees.
During the year, 237 vessels, with a total
tonnage of 400,910, entered at the port of
Ancon, and 238 vessels, with a total tonnage
of 399,690, cleared. At Cristobal, 235 vessels.
with a total tonnage of 636,191 entered, and
232 vessels, with a total tonnage of 625,958.
On June 30. 1910, there were 2,783 leases in
force in the Canal Zone, 1,892 of which were

for building lots and 884 for agricultural lands,
an increase of 686, as compared with the pre-
ceding fiscal year. The area of agricultural
land under lease was 1,545 hectares, or ap-
proximately 3,682 acres. Rents collected
from leases amounted to $27.282.29, as com-
pared with 626,969.88 for 1908-09; $17,436.76
for 1907-08, and $7,974.78 for 1906.07.
The total collections on account of general
taxes and licenses aggregated $107,642.58, as
compared with $98,970.86 for the previous
fiscal year. The distillation tax produced a
revenue of $3,158.67. as compared with $2,209
for 1908-09. and $3,814.94 for 1907-08. The
liquor license collections amounted to $65,400,
as compared with $72,600 for the preceding
fiscal year. Insurance companies paid $234.-
34 as fees for transacting their business in the
The estates of 38 American employ es of the
Canal Commission or the Panama railroad
were settled during the sear, and there were
17 estates still under adjustment on June 30,
1910. The moneys handled,during the year
on account of this work amounted to $6.531.-
24. Twelve estates escheated to the Govern-
ment of the Canal Zone in accordance with
the provisions of Sections 779 and 780 of the
Code of Civil Procedure. The value of these
estates was $552.25.
In addition to the collection of Zone reve-
nues, bills against employes and others are
collected on account of hospital fees, quaran-
tine charges, subsituence, sales of material, etc.
The total of such collections for the year
amounted to $31,373.03.
The grand total of revenues collected during
the fiscal year by the department was $310,-
279.57, as compared with $297,541.60 for
1908-09, and the total of all moneys handled
was $5.577,285.24, as compared with $5,491,-
566.48 for the previous year.
Pedro Miguel Locks.
Preparations are under way at the Pedro
Miguel Locks for continuing the construction
of the side and center walls from the head wall
north to the forebay wall. The side walls will
extend back from the head wall for a distance
of about 700 feet, and the center wall for a
distance of about 1,700 feet, or nearly to the
site of the No. I berm crane. Before concrete
can be laid in this section, however, consid-
erable material, principally rock, will have to
be removed. A steam shovel is already at
work excavating for the extension of the east
side wall; drilling operations, preparatory to
blasting in the section where the center wall
extension will be, are in progress, and grading
for a construction track, over which the spuil
from the west wall excavation will be carried.
has been begun. This track will run on a berm
along the edge of the west bank, extending to
a dump a short distance away, where the
material will be wasted. The spoil from the
center wall excavation will be carried on dirt
trains over a track which will be laid from the
forebay to the present end of the center wall,
thence through the center wall culvert to its
lower outlet and on out of the lock at the
south end. The height of the center wall
culvert is 16 feet 8 inches; it is larger than
some of the East River tubes in New York
City, and the construction trains can be
operated through it easily.
The work of installing the two new 2-cubic

yard mixers, one in the east and the other in
the west storage trestle, for producing con-
crete with which to build the wall extensions,
is well advanced. The west mixer is com-
pleted, and the east mixer lacks only its elec-
trical equipment.
The construction of the side and center
walls toward the south end of the lock has
been advanced. A section of the east side
wall, in which the greatest amount of concrete
remains to be laid, is built to its permanent
height, and its foundation has been completed
nearly to the lower gate sill. The culvert
section in the center wall is finished to within
about 100 feet of the sill.
Concreting around the T culvert and the
lower gate sills is in progress. As this work
is out of the reach of the chamber cranes, the
concrete for it is produced by the mixer situ-
ated on the east bank, which formed a part
of the auxiliary equipment before the in-
stallation of the permanent handling plant.
The mixer was placed in operation on Septem-
ber 20, and is delivering an average of 100
cubic yards a day. The concrete is carried
from the mixer in buckets, thence raised by a
locomotive crane into hoppers, and from there
allowed to fall into Decauville cars to be
transferred to the point desired.
Considerable back filling with rock from
Ancon quarry has been accomplished along
the west wall of the lock.

hour working days of the week ending Octo-
ber 1, and the total to that date, follows:

New Contract for Paymeni of Improvements in
Colon and Panama.
A new contract has been entered between
the United States and the Republic of
Panama providing the manner in which
payment shall be made for the sewers,
waterworks, and pavement; installed in the
cities of Colon and Panama under Article
VII ofthe Treaty of November IS, 1903. The
contract was signed on September 30, but is
in force as of July 1, 191U. The chief points
in which it differs from the old, contract signed
on October 14, 1907, are : i.l The amount
estimated to be raised in fifty .ears for the
cost of installing, operating, and maintaining
for fifty years the waterworks and sewers,
and construction, maintenance and repair of
pavements for ten year- was estimated under
the old contract as S3,2. 6,250, or $65,525 per

Fatal Accident Near Paralso.
Preston Douglas, a Barbadian, check No.
93530, wa' fatally injured, and Charles Green.
a Panamanian. check No. 21215, sustained
the fracture of a leg in an accident near Para-
iso at 6.45 a. m., on Thursday, September 29.
The men were employed as brakemen and
were standing on the footboard of the tender
of lucomotive No. 298 as it backed down an
incline track just north of bridge No. 57 to
couple on to a train of dirt cars. The engine
wheels slid as the air was applied to them and
the foremost car was struck with considerable
force, pinning the two men between the car
and tender. Douglas lived in Panama and
was removed to Ancon Hospital, where he
died a few hours later.

OctoberS, 1910. THE CNNAL RECORD


Work Between Gatun Dam and Culebra Cut.
Excavation in the channel through the
Gatun Lake region is both retarded and assist-
ed by freshets in the Chagres River. Within
the past ten days the shovels at work at 40
feet above sea level have been flooded twice
and have been obliged to suspend for a day
each time to allow the water to subside. Yet
each of these freshets carried away thousands
of cubic yards of material from the dumps
along the river, and thus were of assistance
in that part of the work.
The river dumps are proving very econom-
ical for clay in the wet season, as compared
with dumps on uhich the tracks must be
shifted continually. Before they were opened
the cost of dumping at Gorgona and Nlamei
was from seven to 15 cents a cubic yard, and
on the river dumps this has been reduced to
four cents a yard, and some material is wasted
at aslow a cost as one cent a yard. On the dump
at Gorgona, both the plan of casting the earth
into the river from a high trestle, and the
regular dry dump are in use, the latter be-
cause it is desirable to make a fill on which the
yards at Gorgona shops ma\ be extended, if
desired. On the trestle dump the clay is
sluiced into the river, and two water cranes
have been erected to wash out mud that sticks
in the cars. It was here that the invention
of a Spanish subforeman %as first used in
dumping and "righting" the cars. It consists
in placing a piece of pipe under the box of
the car at a slight angle with the track, with
one end touching the box and the other resting
on a tie. The locomotive draws the car slowly
forward and, as the pipe approaches the ver-
tical, the body is dumped. The same plan is
used in "righting" the body, this operation
being accomplished without the train coming
to a stop. Five men can do the work pre-
viously requiring 20 by use of the "pipe tilt-
er." The pay of the subforeman was in-
creased when the effectiveness of his method
was demonstrated.
At Point 5, near Nlamei, the dump is. on a
trestle alongside the river, and the material
is sluiced into the stream. In spite of the
sluicing, however, the bank grows slowl) to
the level of the track, and at regular intervals,
the clay is dislodged by small charges of dyna-
mite. From 2,000 to 3,500 yards of spoil are
disposed of daily at this dump, and only 15
laborers are employed in keeping it in con-
dition. The cars are so loaded by the shovels as
to make it unnecessary to hook the chains, and
they are dumped b) the "tilting pipe." They
are hauled back to the shovel without being
"righted," and the shovel pushes each body
into position with the first dipperful of earth.
There is a dump on a bend in the river at San
Pablo, in which 50,000 carloads of earth have
been wasted, two loads at a time. The river
is forced by a bar on the west side to flow
sheer against the east bank, and the current
thus carries away the spoil as rapidly as it is
At present, excavation in the lake region is
confined to steam shovel between Gorgona and
Mamei, and to hydraulic work by a contract-
or, opposite Tabernilla. At Gorgona, three
shovels are digging at 50 feet above sea level,
11 feet above the bottom of the channel.
One of these has made a cut so close to
the California Hotel that the foundations of
this big frame building are right on the edge
of the ditch. The next cut would include

part of the building, if it were not that the
Commission has agreed to tear it down and
reerect it at New Gatun
Four French dredge; lie in the channel, two
at Gorgona and two at Maamer. and the dig-
ging is carried on around them. They were
erected and had been in use by the French.
Three of them are of the Belgian ladder
type, which makes its oun station; and
one is a small suction. Thos-e at Gorgona
have been stripped of all valuable machinery
and most of the parts hate been put to uie
in the dredge at the Pacific entran.-c Only
a few parts have been taken from ihe ladder
dredge and the suction dredge at .aamei.
Inasmuch as these old dredges are n.t grarc lv
in the wa% of the excavation, it is likelN that
the) will be allowed to remain in their pres-
ent positions until the lake is formed. ihenn
they can be floated out of the channel at
much less cost than would be incurred b-%
wrecking and removing them now.
The shovels at Goreionia ha\e already\ cut
aoay a -mall portion of the cane plantation of
Antonio Andrade, uho ran a rum distillery
there for many sears and i- believed to have
made a fortune from the business The whole
plantation sill be covered bi the lake in a
Ies. c ears. He has been paidS90.000 I:,n the
Government for damages sustained, and is
merely occupying the place until the Canal
oork causes him to move.
Nine shovels are now at work in the lake
region, three at 50 feet above sea level at
Gorgona. and ~Iwo at Point 5, three at east
Mamei. and one ar Point 6, on the 40-foot
level. The excavation betrecn Gatun Dam
and Culebra Cut, 23 miles, is ;'S per i:ent com-
Central Division Dumps in September.
The six unloaders in the Pedro Miguel
district of the Central Division during the
month of September, 1910, unloaded 1,750
Lidgerwood trains, an average of 70 trains per
day for the month. The three unloaders at
Balboa averaged 40 trains per da% and the
three at Miraflorts 30 train- per day.
In addition to the Lidgerwood trains above
enumerated. 62 eastern n dump train s were
unloaded at Balboa and five at Miraflores,
making a grand total of 1,817 trains unloaded
in the district during the month of September.
This is the greatest number of trains unloaded
with six unloaders in a single month in the
Central Divi,.in, the best previous record
having been made in August, 1910, when an
average of 67A trains %ere handled per day.
There was a delav, of 91 hours and 21 mrrn-
utes at Balboa waiting for trains-. In addi-
tion, there were other delays on account of
derailments, breaking dorn of unloaders. etc.
At Miraflores., the delat due to waiting for
trains was 38 hours and 15 minutes.
From September I to 15. the Lidgermiod
trains averaged It cars to the train, after
which date an additional car was added,
giving an average uf 20 cars per train.

Canal Work In September.
The grand total of Canal excavation in
September was 2,687,088 cubic yards, of which
2.621.731 cubic yards were charged to "work
excavation" and 65,357 cubic yards to
"plant." The dry excavation amounted to
1,717,986 cubic yards and was principally by
steam shovels. The dredges removed 969,-
102 cubic yards in addition to the amount

pumped into Gatun Dam by suction dredges.
The progress on the locks at Gatun, Pedro
Miguel and Nliraflores is referred to else-
where in this issue.
In the Atlantic Division, the total excava-
tion was 603,070 cubic yards. Of this toItl,
124,753 cubic yards were dry excavation and
the remainder was removed by the dredges
in the Atlantic entrance.
The total excavation in the Central Divi.
sion was 1,574,238 cubic yards, all of which was
chargeable to work excavation. All records
for excavation in any previous September were
In the Pacific Division the total excavation
was 509,781) cubic yards, all but 18,995 cubic
yards of which was taken out by the dredges
at the Pacific entrance.

Corozal Recreation Hall.
Favorable action has been taken upon the
application of thfe residents of Corozal for the
placing of the recreation hall in that settle-
ment under the direction of the Y. MNI. C. A.
An estimate is being prepared for the addi-
tional room and equipment that will be re-
quired. It calls for the enlargement of the
present building by the addition of two rooms,
one, a reading room, and the other, a pool and
billiard room. The reading room, which now
occupies the front part of the hall, will be
converted into an office, and a place for serv-
ing light refreshments.
Shovel Work In Chagres District.
On October 4, se'enshovels, working in the
Chagres construction district of the Central
Division, excavated 9.570 cubic yards of ma-
terial in the working day of eight hours, an
average o1 1,410 cubic yards per shovel for
the day. During this time the shovels were
under steam 56 hour, and actually digging 44
hours and .30 minutes; waitingg for cars, 5 hours
and 10 minute;: clearing track, one hour;
mining, 40 minutes; cleaning dipper, 4 hours
and 30 minutes, and repairing shovel, 10
minutes. These shovels are all of the 65 and
70-ton class, and are digging in very stiff red
Slides in Culebra Cut.
A small slide developed in the west bank of
Culebra Cut at Cunette, near Empire, on
October 6. and part of an old dump, made by
the French and used by the Americans in 1905,
moved into the Canal. The break in the
bank had been widening for several days and
in anticipation of the slide the water main
along the west bank had been moved, and the
air main securely anchored to the more stable
portion of the bank. Several small buildings,
forming part of the labor camp, were included
in the limits of the slide and were removed.
The construction track along the bank from
Empire to Las Cascadas was broken, and
communication between the Empire and
Whitehouse yard by this line is temporarily
interrupted. This track serves as the lead to
the Whitehouse incline into the Cut. but the
part used for this purpose was not injured by
the slide.
A portion of the slide at Cucaracha, accel-
erated by the heavy rains and excavation at
the toe of the slope, brokelfrom the main slide

A New Dump to be Made on the Old One.
Work has been begun on the "double deck-
ing" of the dump at Tabernilla, that is. an en-
tirely new dump about 20 feet high is being
made on top of the present dump, which is al-
ready from 20 to 25 feet above the level of the
surrounding country and about 60 feet above
sea level. At present the work of imposing the
new dump is confined to that section on which
cars are unloaded from the right side, because
this isthe section of the present dump on which
the "leads" or spur tracks are too long for eco-
nomical wasting of spoil. Broadening the dump
is impossible, because it is already encroaching
on the Panama railroad right-of-way and the
Tabernilla River. About three weeks ago
the work of raising the track at the north end
of the dump was begun, and when the first
lead is completed there will be 2,000 feet of
track on a one per cent grade rising from the
beginning of the yard to a height of 20 feet,
and beyond that, a 4,01UU-foot stretch of level
dump at 20 feet abote the present elevation.
The dump at Tabernilla is the largest on the
Canal work and most of the spoil dumped
there is from the north slope of Culebra Cut.
Its content, as compared with other large
dumps, on June 30, 1910, was as follo,..s;

All the material dumped at Tabernilla is
wasted, and when the Canal is finished the
dump will be a level, fan-shaped mound of
earth whose top % ill be beneath the surface of
Gatun Lake. Dumping at this point aas
begun in 1906 and has continued without
cessation. The location was chosen, because
it was near the main line of the Panama rail-
road, was well outside the Canal prism, and
afforded a plot of low level ground two miles
long and almost as wide. At first trestles
were driven and the cars were dumped or
ploughed clean on these trestles. When a
trestle was filled the dump was extended by
laying the track on "cribbing", or on a pile
tail trestle, and broadened by throwing
the track over to the edge of the fill. The
material dumped here has been the run of the
Cut, soft earth, clay, soft rock and hard rock.
On this apparently barren material a small
jungle has grown up consisting of a few trees
with trunks the girth of a man's wrist, and a
thick growth of grasses and bushes. On ma-
terial dumped only two years ago hardy
saplings are now growing.
A year ago the dump reached the summit
of its activity when 60 trainloads of rock and
earth were wasted each day and five unloaders
were kept busy. When the trestles on the
relocation of the Panama railroad north of
Gamboa were ready the trains were gradually
diverted from Tabernilla until at present only
20 a day are unloaded there and only two un-
loaders are required. The increase in the
amount of material hauled from Culebra Cut
to Gatun Dam has also lessened the dumping
at Tabernilla. The force at present employed
consists of 15 white Americans and 225 la-
borers. A comparative statement of the
amount of material wasted at Tabernilla;
that placed in other large dumpsof the Central

Division during the fiscal year 1910. and of
the amounts dumped prior to July 1, 1909,

Work of Central Division Shovels During the
Month of September.
During the month of September, the total
amount of material excavated in the Central
Division was 1,574,238 cubic yards, of which
459,473 cubic yards were classified as earth,
and 1,114.765 cubic yards as rock. Of this
quantity. 1,572,064 cubic yards were removed
by steam shovels, and 2,174 cubic yards by

dairy products, vegetable_, fruits and grocer-
ies at stated periods, iz., .\pril, 1907, 1908,
1909, 1910, and June. 1911. This -tatnement
shows that in the face of a constantly ad-
vancing wholesale market, good. Il the above
classes were being sold ,.heaper in the first
half of 1910 than during an-,' previous period
of operations covered b,, the table, ntch rhe
exception of pork products, on khich the
advance in price within the last year has been
Tuenty-one comnmissar,' stores %were in
operation on June 30, '.'10, and an additional
store will shortly be opened at Mir.aluore-.
Fourteen of the stores are provided with ice
boxes of sufficient size to stoue meat- and
other perishable goods. Butchers arc em-
ployed in eight ol the commissaries.
Lauindr)-During the fiscal year, 2,993,761
pieces were laundered. The average number
of employes served monthly was 7,265, and
the value of the work performed was $90,797.-
Bakery--The baker, u.ed 15.031 barrels
of flour, and produced 4.S92.,401 loaves of
bread, 504,003 rolls, 130,667 pounds of cake,
and '32,243 pies during 1909-10. The making
of pics wias discontinued in January, as it waas
found after about a y,,e.ir' : experience th.ir it is
almost impossible to ship pirs in this clhmate
and deliver them to customers in a fresh and
palatable condition. A new blinder and
elevator, equipped with an automatic scale
attachment and tempering device for uater,
was installed during the year. The ti,,tal val-
ue of the bakery product was 6219.370.1o.
Coffee R..astng Plant-During the year,
319,697 pounds of green coffee were roast-ed,
valued at $77,905.43. Three grades are pro-
duced, one a pure Santos of the highest grade,
which is sold roasted and ground for 17. cents
a pound; second, a blend made of a Santos
base mixed with mild South American grades
and Mocha and Java, sold for 25 cents a
pound, and third, a pure Mocha and Java
coffee, sold for 35 cents a pound. A new 100l-
pound roaster and a 50-pound grinder were
Ice Plant-Twenty-seven thousand, nin.:-
hundred and twenty-eight tons ,f ice i,_re
manufactured during the year, valued at
$187,446.95. During the months of April
and May, and a part of June, 1910, the ice
supply became so short that ice had to be
hauled from New York, in addition to bu' ing
all the excess ice the local private plants could
produce. A tank capable of turning out ain
additional 25 ton dail, was installed on
June 17, which relieved the shortage.
Ice Cream Plant-The demand for ice cream
was steady, and 91,321 gallons, valuedd at
S62,379.93, were manufactured. The product
is carefully packed in standard tubs and
shipped out to hotels and stores. Flavors
are changed from four to six times a week to
insure variety. Only fresh cream and milk.
shipped in refrigeration from the United
States, crushed fruits and the highest classes
of flavoring are used. A building, designed
especi ally for the manufacture of this article,
and by which it is expected that its sale can be

increased at least 50 per cent, has been con-
.1 automatic Wcigling and Packing--A com-
plete automatic weighing and packing depart-
ment was installed during the year. By this
method, flour, beans, peas, rice, coffee, etc.,
are weighed and packed read, for delivery
tocusromer, thereby saving the waste attend-
ant uponcareless '...eighing, and enabling the
storekeeper to sell goods in original packages.
During the period from January I to June 30,
1910. inclusive, goods to the amount of 2,470,-
9t60 pounds were packed in this manner.
Pover Plant-A 300-ton compressor, having
a capacity for running the entire refriger-
atinc and ice-making plant and -ffording an
opportunity to shut down the other com-
pres rs when necessary to repair them, was
purchased and is being installed.
C.:ld Storage Plant-During the year, a load-
ing corridor 21 feet by 136 feet 5 inches
was completed, which makes it possible to
load all goods requiring refrigeration in a tem-
perature not above 58 degrees Fahrenheit,
thus insuring the arrival of this class of goods
at destination in afresh condition. It also
provides space for the storage of smoked
and pickled meats. A two-story iron and
concrete warehouse 50 by 200 feet, made
necessary by the enlargement of the bakery
in 1909, was erected during the year.

Shooting at Culebra.
J. A. Schaberle, a white American employed
in the office of the Chief Engineer, was shot
in the bowels while in his quarters at Culebra
about 2 o'clock on the morning of October 10,
by J. R. Johnson, also an employee of the
Chief Engineer's office. Mr. Schaberle was
taken toAncon Hospital where his condition
is regarded as critical. Johnson was arrested
and will be held pending the result of the in-
uric :. to Schaberle. The cause of the shoot-
ing is not known further than that Johnson
was intoxicated.

Burglar Shot at Corozal.
A demented negro, Alfred Brooks, was shot
and killed by E. N. Knapp while leaving the
quarters of Mr. Knapp at Corozal at 2 o'clock
in the morning of October 7. A coroner's
jury returned a verdict of justifiable homicide.
Brooks w as indicted for the murder of Corne-
lius McKenzie and Ella Williams near Empire

cla red insane by a board of three experts, was
committed to the asylum for the insane at

from the asylum on the night of October 6,
and probably walked to Corozal.

Shop Order System at Gorgona.
A new work nrkr -.sitem will be installed
in Goreona hops to relieve thL foremen -of
much of the clerical worrk thev are now obliged
to do, and thus gi.L the-m more time for plan-
ning the- methods if 'hp kurk and -uperxi-
sing the men under them. Thu great in r-eas-
in work at the shops. anihout corresponding
increase in supervi'...ry force, makes it ad-
visable to relics: the foremen of clerical
duties. T-, draft-imen v.'ill be rquirfed for
the new sy-tti m .nd. in addition to their
clericall duties, the \% ill be available to explain
to the various forcmrcn the details of drawings,
thus accomplihing a further saving in the
time of the supervisor fonre. The foremen
who will be benefited especially are those of
the machine shop. boiler, blacksmith, car-
penter. planing, and pattern shop. and the
night foremen.
The new system will be installed gradually,
and for the present will be confined to manu-
facturing orders onl\. A material bill will
be made out in the drafting room and will
accompany each shop order when it is issued
to the shop. It will shoo in distinct columns
the nature of the article ordered, the quan-
tity required, the stockk on hand or if not on
hand, the date at shich a definite quantity
may be expected, and the shop by which
stock is to be drawn from the st'rehouc.
In this connection the storekeeper of the
Quartermastcr'b store at Gorgona has been
instructed to follow certain rules in order
that there may be thorough cooperation.
The effect of the system will be to relieve
the foremen of work in studying out the de-
tails of drawings, preparation of a list of
materials needed for each job, and ascertain-
ing whether the material is in stock or on the

The boat arrivals at Colon also include a
number of sloops and sr.houners, which make
trips between the lbrhmus and Trinidad, Ja-
maica, and other islands of the West Indies,
while a few come from Central American
coast points and islands nearby. The number
of boats engaged in this trade has increased
considerably in the past two years. One of
this class, the Gertrude, arrived recently from
Turtle Bow on the Costa Rican coast, a local-
ity % which gets it name from the large number
of turtles found there. The sloop makes occa-
sional trips to Colon, bringing as its principal
cargo, several hundred turtles reaching in size
to 500 pounds, which find ready sale in the
local market. Several vessels make period-
ic trips from the island of San Andres with
fruit, and schooners from the West Indies
bring yams, yucca, avocados and fruits, and
also, as a rule, a few passengers.

Rapid Movement In Cucaracha Slide.
On May 25 there was a movement of earth
and rock on the east side of Culebra Cut in
what is known as Cucaracha slide, and it was
estimated that 500,000 cubic ards of material
had broken away from the bank and was
gradually sliding into the Canal prism. Ex-
cavation of this mass ol material has con-
tinued with few interruptions until the present
time, and there remain to be removed only
about 175,000 cubic yards of the original
500,000. This remaining material, which i,.
almost entirely earth, received a new impetu.:
on the afternoon of October 22, and there
ensued the most rapid movement of a large
mass of earth that has yet been experienced
in the excavation of Culebra Cut.
At 4.40 o'clock the material began to move
toward the Canal axis and by 5 o'clock the
toe had advanced 75 feet toward the axis.
completely filling the pioneer shovel cut and
drainage ditch, carrying away all four of the
construction tracks on the east side of the
Cut, catching and imprisoning 16 Lidgerwood
flat ca.., locomotives Nos. 227 and 280. and
steam shovels Nos. 254 and 208. Shovel No.
208 was moved laterally a distance of 50
feet and remained on its tracks, perfectly
horizontal, so that it could have resumed
excavating as soon as the movement ceased
if there had been any Aay of sending
cars to it to take away the spoil. All
the equipment caught in the slide will be
extricated this week and the excavation will
continue as heretofore.
No new mareiial was set in motion by this
movement in Cucaracha slide, and the state.
meant heretofore made, that this and all slides
that have so far developed in Culebra Cut
represent about 15 per cent of the total
excavation remaining, still holds good.
Improvements to Balboa Port Terminal.
The improvement of the terminal facilities
at the port of Balboa was begun on Monday,
October 24, when the dredge Marmot was
transferred from its former position in the
Canal channel opposite the Corozal flats and

set at work removing a panr on the mud spit
in front of the shipwa,.s. A 300-fo,-t channel
will be dredged from that point to the site of
the proposed concrete dock, north uf the sand
unloading dock. to a depth of 45 Icet, which
will provide ample room for the na .atiion
of ships As the present channel width is less
than 200 Iect. a cut over luU Icet wide will be
made. Plan,. lor the charges to be made to
the Panama Railroad Cormpan,,'s steel pier.
and other improvements in connection with
the enlargement of dock facilities, ar, being
prepared in the drafting office uf the railroad
at Colon.

High Water in the Chagrea.
Iligh water in the Chagres River during the
week ending October 22 made it neces'arn
for the steam shovels which are excavating
in the Canal prism at Gorgona and Mareis
to iea'e work _n October 211, 21. and 22.
The water rote above the fire boxe- of the
shorelsi-and inundated the construction track5,
making a coirrinuation of %work impo-sible
These flo-I- are expected and the procedure
is to merel,, wail until the water subsides and
then 'tart ,,ork again. Meanwhile the ri'.er
dumps are cleaned b,. the high water.
A -tatement of the stages of the riter.
during the week referred to, follows, all eleva-
tions being abive mean sea level:

Further Economies In the Shops.
An order has been placed for three sand-
blast machines. with flexible hose and nozzles,
to be used in removing scale from steel cars
when they are brought into the shops at
Gorgona for repairs.
A washer machine has alz'o been ordered.
It will be capable of punching washers from
3-16 of an inch to two inches in diameter.
Scrap metal will be used for the washers, thus
giving it a greater value than it has as scrap,
and at the same time making it unnecessary to

buy in the States the large amount of washers
required by the mechanical work.
The Taylor-Barth system of caring for
leather belts is to be installed at the Gorgona
shops. It consists of two parts, the first
being a card index by which accurate account
of the condition of the belts is kept, and the
second a belt-cutting machine B\ the use
., thi- machine a belt can be cut to its proper
length under tension, so that when the ends
are united with wire lacing it will be at the
ten-ion proper for the transmission of power.
A record will be kept of the dates on which
each belt may need adjustment, and on that
day. the inspector will restretch and recut it.
Thus the belts will alwa% s be in condition, so
that no machine need be stopped for replacing
and replacing them. The readjustment will
be done during the noon hour and between
5 and 7 o'clock in the evening. after the day
shift has quit work and before the night
shift has begun.

Excavation in Empire District.
On October 12. twenty steam shovel, of the
100-ton class working in the Empire construc-
tion district of the Central Division, excavated
25,o23 cubic yards in an 8-hourday, an average
of 1,281 cubic .ards for ever) shovel in the
district on that date. During this period,
the shovels were under steam 160 hours: were
actually at work 116 hours and 25 minutes;
were waiting for cars 23 hours and thirty
minutes, the rest of the time being lost in
moving back, repairing shovels, cleaning
track, etc.

Adjustment of Land Claims.
An agreement has been reached between
the I-thmian Canal Commi;-ion and the
Panama Railroad Company, through their
Counsel and Chief Attorney, and Hinckley
and Ganson of Panama, representing 58
claimants, whereby claims for improvements
on lands to be inundated by the waters of
Gatun Lake will be adjusted for 21,559.
The claimants' estimate of the value of the
improvements wa. S66,000. Originally. 116
claims were presented, but only 58 of these
were adjusted, some were rejected, and about
thirty remain to be settled.
Agents of the Panama Railroad Company
were sent into the Trinidad valley to locate
the claims on blue prints showing the situation
and elevation of each holding, and to deter-
mine the character of the improvements.
The Counsel and Chief Attorney will arrange
for the identification of the claimants at the
time the pa, ments are to be made, and thus a
double check will be obtained on the land and
the claimants No allowance was made f.r
clearing or for early crops, but the occupants
ma\, remain ,"n the land to gather the crops
at their own risk until the land is flooded.
Improvements may be moved.
Outside of the Canal Zone and in the Trini-
dad valley 34 claimants were found on

Miraflores Locks.
The output of concrete with the temporary
plant in the upper lock at Miraflores is now
averaging over 800 cubic yards for each 8-
hour day. The work is done by six mixers,
two of which are of two cubic yards capacity,
and the others of one-half cubic yard capacity
each. There are two other small mixers as-
igncdl to these locks, but they a:c uindicrgoing

east side wall, it being desired to build it as rap-
idlyas possiblein order to curtailinconvenience
from slides w, which occur in the earth bank after
heavy rains. The work of removing the

Field Enlarged During 1909-10, and a Material
Gain in Membership Was Made.
During the fiscal year 1909-10, two new
clubhouses, a large one at Gatun on March 5,
and a smaller one at Porto Bello on April 12,
were opened by the Isthmian Canal Commis-
sion, increasing the number of such buildings
to six. The largest membership for any month
of the fiscal year was 1,643 in June, 1910, and
the smallest was 1,075 in November, 1909.
The membership on June 30, 1910, was 1,222.
About 2,479 different men availed themselves
of the membership privilege, as compared
with 2,140 during the preceding year. The
gross receipts amounted to $64,973.12, an
average of $5,414.42 a month, which was
$6 15 56 a month greater than the year before,
and $933.55 a month greater than two years
ago. The net balance above estimated liabil-
ities was $S.156.54, which was $6,987.11
greater than the net balance on June 30, 1909.
Collections on account of dues alone aggre-
gated $13,493. The total receipts of the re-
freshment counters were $25,025.54, a daily
average of Sb8.07. and a gain over the year
before of $2,795.14. These are operated as
a convenience to members, and not as a source
of profit, and are conducted on as close a mar-
gin as practicable.
The attendance was carefully estimated
each month during the year, and on several
occasions an actual count was taken for
periods ranging from ten days to two weeks.
As a result, the total attendance is placed at
over 600,000, or about 100,000 more than
during the fiscal year 1908-09.
The work of the year was carried out along
practically the same lines as -in the past,
especial attention being paid to the- physical
and entertaining features. There was a
monthly average of 184 different men using
the gymnasiums during the year and 692 were
enrolled in systematic gymnasium work, with
a total of 10,475 in attendance, an increase

of 3.304 over the preceding twelvemonth.
Basketball and indoor baseball pro%.,d ai-
tractive fcitur,.., and men were trained f.r
pa rticipat ion in several outdoor athletic nie ts.
In the amusement field, local .:ntertain-
merits, given by the members themsel.vs, were
encouraged a- far as practicable. Thr.ee omn-
-isted of dramatic entertainments, minstrel
shows, concert-, smokers.s" debates and
lectures. Several professional entertainer- %i ere
brought to the T-thmus, and on three icca-
sions during the year, the people of the Zorn.
were given an opportunity, through tht club.
house management, of attending grand opera
at the National Theatre in Panama. One
hundred and ninety-four entertainment- were
held, with an attendance of over 38,000. I n
addition, 119 functions outside the a--cia-
tion management were given in the club-
houses, with an attendance of nearly 17,000
The clubhouse libraries were kep: well
supplied with the latest publications. TI h
members availing themselves of this priv ilege
averaged 602 monthly, and a total of 17.S21
books were withdrawn. The reading rooms
were well filled at leisure times, and on ihe
correspondence tables, which occupy a
space therein, 62,433 letters "ert written
During the year there were 50,792 b.w, ling
games, a monthly average of 4,732, and 179,-
949 games of pool and billiards, a monthly
average of 14,996. Seventy-six different
tournaments were conducted in which 1,15,4
players were enrolled. The average m, nthly
enrollment of chess and checker club-, was
46; glee clubs, 12; dramatic and minstrel
clubs, 28; camera clubs, 80; Bible clubs, 50.
In addition, 274 men were enrolled in Aeduca-
tional classes, and 42 religious meetings were
held, with a total attendance of about 4.000
The boys' department proved a succ-ssful
feature. The membership, which includes
boys between the ages of 10 and 16, averaged
65, and the attendance averaged 47. Fort'-
two outings were planned and carried out f"r
them during the year. The plan of admiting
women to the privileges on two afternoons ul
each week, as well as to evening functions,


The number of occupants of Commission quarters in September was 23,711, of "hnim
9,025 were white Americans, 7,697 negroes, and 6,282 Europeans. By comparison .'ith
the statement of the labor force in September, published elsewhere in this issue, it i ill be
seen that practically all of the American and European employes and their familii-; are
housed in Commission quarters, while only a small portion of the negro employes jre o-
housed. The majority of the negroes prefer living in lodging houses in the various vill ites,
or in small huts on the edge of the jungle. A statement showing the number of occupant
in the various villages follows:

Vilagle at Toro Point and the Work In Progress
The double trestle at Toro Point, from which
the rock fill is made for the new breakwater in
Colon harbor, is being built seaward at the
rate of three bents, or about 40 feet each
working day, and noa extends about 1,600
feet from the shore. The trestle leaves the
mainland just inside the point, only a few
yards from the lighthouse and extends in a
northeasterly direction. Two piledrivers are
employed at present, one working on each
track, but these will be replaced shortly by a
new machine ordered especially for the break-
water work. The parts for the piledriver,
which will be the largest in the Commission
service, have been received but not yet as-
sembled. The body part will be 45 feet long,
and the machine will be able to handle piles
100 feet in length, driving them anywhere
within-a radius of 28 feet off center.
The trestle has been filled in with material
frun thequarry fora distanceofabout 600feet,
and partly filled in for about 850 feet farther.
In this work four locomomes of the French
type and 24 Western dump cars are used, earih
train consisting of frc in five tuo .i cars. About
50 more cars will be added to the motive
equipment within a short time. The French
locomotives are able to haul ten full cars each,
as the grade of the track k, ring up on the
breakwater trestle is %er, lig t. The trestle
has reached a point where the aater is 37 feet
deep and only 80-foot piles or longer can be
used. From here to the end of the break-
water, between 8,000 and 9,000 feet. the depth
of the water varies from 37 to 44 feet S.. lar
only hard bottom has been encountere.l -rd
there has been but little subsidence and prac.
tically no wash of the material after it has been
placed. From 1,800 to 2,000 cubic yards of
material mostly rock, are dumped from the
trestle each working day. the output being
supplied by two 70-ton steam shovels, work-
ing at quarry No. 1.
Two more steam shw.els will probably be
added to the excavating equipment later on.
There are two quarries available, but onl,,
one has been worked to date, although the
second has been blasted and can be opened
at any time. The rock mass is broken up in
large boulders and is transported to the
breakwater in sizes as large as can be loaded
on the cars. The ro.-k is of a soft variety, but
does not decompose in sea water. Explora-

Atlantic Entrance Terminal Facilties.
A study is being made of the land and water
near the Atlantic entrance to the Canal in
which to base plans for a terminal harbor and
docks, such as have already been arranged for
at the Pacific entrance. A survey has ju=t
been completed of the territory between
Cristobal Point on the north, Gatun Locks on
the south, the French canal on the east and
the American Canal on the \\est. an area
approximately four miles long and on. m
wide. About 100 wash drill boring ha
been made to determine the nature of the
bottom, and dry samples %ere taken from the
holes at regular intervals. A feA extra
borings are being made north and west of
Gatun Locks and when these are completed
the terminal studies will be continued.
Hydraulic Fill of Colon.
The hydraulic fill of the lowlands in the
southern part of the cit) of Colon will be
begun this week. It forms part of the perma-
nent improvement under the $SS00,000 appro-
priation for the further sanitation of the cities
of Colon and Panama, approximately $500.-
000 of which will be spent in Colon. Twenty-
two city blocks will be reclaimed and made
fit for building sites by pumping coral sand
from Manzanillo Bay upon the snampy area
now uninhabitable. Filling will be begun on
the area near Ninth street, between D and E
streets, and about 100,000 cubic yards of the
558,000 of the total fill will be deposited there.
It is estimated that the fill will require five
monthsin the making, due to the heavy nature
of the material to be pumped and the long
distance it must be forced from the dredge to
the city, most of it over a mile. The total
lift is not over five feet.
The filling will be done by the 20-inch suc-
tion dredge Sandpiper, formerly excavating
at Miraflores Locks, but recently reerected
at Cristobal marine shops for use in the At-
lantic Division. This dredge was towed from
the shops to its position in Manzanillo Bay
on October 29. In its reconstruction all the
ladder machinery was renewed, including a

new cutter head, cutter engine, ladder head,
and the subs itutirn ol an h-inch for t lie old
6-inch -haltl which turns the cutter. The
pump has been rebuilt and the engine-,
and boilers thor'oiuhl\ overhauled. An im-
proscd spud frame, by mean' of which the
spuds are lifted and lmcred without the
mechanism being under water, has been built
on the rear end. and round spud' have been
substituted f.,r the old square ones. The
quarters lor the crew have ben refinished,
and the whole upper deck i.s r-reencd -igainst
Corozal Recreation Hall.
The improvements authorized for the recre-
ation hall at Corozal include an extension
35xb0 feet on the north side of the present
building. This, will be di ided into a recep-
tion and a billiard room, each 25 by 33 feet,
with quarter- for the secr-tar- arid a toilet
rromn between them. The building %ill then
include, besides the rooms mention, a -itting
room and lobby, assembly hall. with -tage,
kitchen, and ladie:' retiring room. The im-
provement v.'sill cost about $.,,0JO0.

The largest piere ol process welding ever
done on the I-thmus was turned out thi- week
from Gorgona shops. It isoneof the IS'4-inch
shafts of the rock breaker VI'uan. which is on
subaqueous rock excavation in the Pacific
entrance. This shaft forms a part of the ram
by the weight of which the rock is crushed.
It is made cf compress-ed can't steel. is 56 feet
long and weighs 19 tons. Immediately after
it was broken it w.%s placed on a car and sent

Pacific Dimislon Telephone Service.
A telephone plant, maintained and oper-
ated independently of th, Panama Railr.iad
Company 's -~\stem, was installed by the
Pacific Divis.mn a few month.ago for use .,i its
various oflict and plant, at Pedru Mreiiel,
Miraflores, Crrozal, Ancon quarry and Balboa
The exchange is situated in a wing of the iard
office at Miraflores and about 50 stations are

now served from it. Twenty-one lines have
becn -trLing and most of them are operated
on the p-irt,-ihne y,,tem. The switchboard
i. wirel f.:.r 50 lines, but by continuing the
part,-line method, it will be able to furnish
-en ce: to upward of 100 stations. The appa-
r.atu is -if the magneto type. Wherever
po-sible, the poles carrying the transmission
line- from the Miraflores power house have
been usilized in stringing the telephone wires
to .tation- at a distance. The plant is under
the supervision of the chief electrician of the
Pacific Di ision. and all repairs to apparatus
are made and line troubles cleared b} the force
under him. Service is furnished only during
working hours, and but one operator is em-
plo.eed. A directory containing the number
of the .tatiM-n, andi their location, will be is-
sutied .,-h rtl y.

Hydraulic Excavarion at Miraflores Locks.
The four 7,500-gallon pumps that furnish
water for the hydraulic work in the Pacific
Division are working satisfactorily except that
during the extreme low tides of the week end-
ing O,.tober 22, the increased depth to water
caused the pumps to labor and pound heavily.
In order to obviate this difficulty. which occurs
only during the extreme tides, two coffer
damni are being rhrow n acro-s the tidal chan-
nel, one above the pumping station and the
other at 'ome distance below. which will
form a reservoir there a sufficient quantity
of water ran be impounded, so that the pumps
ran be kept running at their maximum capac-
ity at all times. The lower coffer dam will be
fitted with regulating gates., which will be
opened at high tide s. that the reservoir can
fill. When the tide begins to ebb the gates
will be closed.
All three of the dredging units on the con-
crete barge-- are in '-erice. One has been
connected through the relay pumping station
near Cotoli Hill, which is intended to aid in
lifting the material into the dam when the
latter is nearing its permanent height of 70
feet. The connection was made at this time
in order that the relay apparatus might be
tested. No auxiliary pressure is required at
present, for the dredging unit on barge No. 2,
which is working through the relay station,
has on recent trial- made the lift through the
pipe up and around the face of the hill to the
dam to a height of 75 feet unaided.
The other two barge pumps are pumping
directly into the core of the dam, both work-
ing in the lower lock -sit at Miraflores, where
a pit of considerable extent has been opened.
The excavation so far made indicates that
this section man have been formerly the bed
of a river, silt and debris having gradually
filled the channel until it was finally diverted.
Numerous limbs and trunks of cocoanut trees
hate been encountered in the mud at a depth
of several feet below the surface of the ground.
These are frequently drawn into and choke
the suction pipes of the barge pumps. When

this happens a colored workman dives to the
mouth of the pipe and extracts the debris.
The washings have also exposed a large
quantity of gravel, the finer portion of which
is carried 'out through the pipes.
The pit in which the dredging pumps are
working has been unwatered, and is kept as
nearly dry as possible. The plan for deepen-
ing it consists in making sumps beneath the
barges toa depth of 10 feet or more, into which
the material dislodged and disintegrated from
the bottom of the pit can be washed by the
nozzles of the hydraulic giants. A stream of
water from Cocoli Lake finds its way into the
pit and to prevent it from accumulating one
of the pumps is kept at work nights.
Building Notes.
Seven type-15, one-family houses, formerly
located on the street in Culebra, known as
"Steam Shovel Row" have been dismantled
and rebuilt at other points. Four have been
taken to Gatun, two to Corozal, and one has
been reconstructed on a site in front of the
residence of the Chief Engineer. Four more
of these houses are to be moved shortly, two
to Pedro Miguel, one to Corozal, and one to
a new site in Culebraf. In reerecting the
houses some modifications in the type are
made, which practically convert them into
type-17, one-family" quarters. There has been
an increase in the number of applications for
married and bachelor quarters at Pedro
Miguel and Corozal. On October 1, there
were 10 applications on the No. 1 list and 42
on the No. 2 list for married quarters at
Pedro Miguel and Paraiso, and one applica-
tion on the No. 1 list and 30 on the No. 2 list
for married quarters at Corozal.
The schoolhouse at Corozal will be con-
verted into quarters for two families, with
three bedrooms, a living room, dining room,


dry room, bath and kitchen in each part. An
8-foot veranda surrounds the building on all
The one-story part of house No. 40, located
in the old part of Pedro Miguel, recently used
as a storehouse, is to be converted into
bachelor quarters. This is an old French
building and was used as a hotel in 1905
and 1906, before the Commission hotel on the
east side of the railroad track was built.
Plans have been prepared for fireman's
quarters to be erected on the north toe of
Gatun Dam, not far from the cement shed.
The main part will be 18 by 20 feet in size,
with a wing 6 by 6 feet. The purpose is to
have a fireman within reach in case of fire, as
the cement shed, power house, storehouse, and
the unloading docks for sand and stone are
all in the immediate vicinity
House No. 2 at Culebra, Lituated near the
penitentiary will be converted into a dispen-
sary for the prison. It will be moved a short
distance from its present site, in order that
it may be included within the stockade with-
out the necessity of making an angle which
would be inconvenient to guard. The build-
ing will be provided with a ward for eight or
more beds or cots, and a surgical room fitted
with a medicine closer and the necessary
Nombre de Dios Sand Output.
The output of sand at Nombre de Dios in
October was about 44,000 cubic yards, as
compared with 32.500 cubic .,ard: in Septem-
ber. During the latter part of the month the
output was over 2,000 yards a day,. and at this
rate the sand pile at Gatun Locks can be
built up rapidly. The 18-inch suction dredge
No. 4, which is digging the -and, is no\ work-
ing on the site of the village a here the depo-.it
is deep and free from clay, and under present
conditions it could excavate 4,000 cubic yards
a day. At present, however, the four barges
in the sand service are working at capacity
in taking away 2,000 cubic sards, but four


Concrete work in Gatun Locks is about 40 per cent completed, 865,524,? cubic yards out of a
total of 2,085,000 having been placed at the close of curk on October 20. The record of con-
crete placed each day last week, and the total up to and including October 29, is shown in the
statement below. Workhasbeen begun onthe concrete cut-off wall, which will extend from the
east side of the upper lock into the hill on which the division office is situated, this hill forming
a part of the Dam. The floor in the middle lock is about 80 per cent completed, and the con-
struction of the wall monoliths is advancing rapidly. On Friday morning, October 28., the
cableways established a new hourly record, when 244 cubic yards of concrete and 28 cubic
yards of hard rock, a total of 272 cubic yards, were placed from 8 to 9 o'clock.
On October 29, in the afternoon between 1 and 2 o'clock, tower No. 4 of the lock cable" a -
placed 98 cubic yards of concrete, 48 cubic yards on cable A and 50 on cable B. The operator-
in the tower were E. C. Connoll:, and J. Mitchell. The foreman receiving the material wai
0. G. Shafer. Six.t\-four cubic yards of the above amount were placed during the first 32
minutes, or at the rate of two cubic yards a minute.

barges of 500 cubic yards capacity each, now
on order in the States, will be added to the
fleet early next year. With this addition to
the barge service the suction dredge can be
worked at its full capacity and the storage of
sand in large quantities at Gatun may be'be-
The method of loading now in use will be
changed within a few weeks by the 'nstalla-
tion of a charging bin on a dock alongside
which the barges may tie up. At present the
suction dredge pumps directly into the barges.
and the operation disturbs the barge on which
the pipe is resting, wastes sand overboard,
and necessitates a large amount of pipe line
work. It is proposed to erect a water-tight
bin of about 200 cubic yards capacity and
with three 20-inch discharge pipes hanging
out over the water, each fitted with a valve.
The dredge will pump into this bin, and the
sand %ill be discharged into the barges lying
at the dick beneath the discharge pipes. In
this way the loading of the barges may be
continuous, the work of adjusting the pipe
line on each barge will be done away with, and
the waste ol sand overboard will be avoided.

Contract for Cement-Carrying Ships.
A contract has been made with the Munson
Line to furnish all the ships necessary to carry
cement to the Isthmus, in addition to that
which can be carried by the steamships
.-ncon and Crzsfobal up to March 31, 1911.
The ratio allowed for this service is $1.70 a ton,
while the rate allowed to the Ancon and Cris-
,thal is $1.75 a ton. The contract was en-
tcrel into after competitive bids had been
received in the u ual way, and the offer of the
Munson Line cas f,,und to be the best. The
steamer _\.or'po.', the first vessel to load
under the ne* arrangement, arrived at Cris-
tobal on Octnber 31. There will be approx-
imatel -, one sailing a month of these steamers.
New Rock Crusher at Porto Bello.
The nr w N.- 21 g.ratory rock crusher for
the crushing ,plant at Porto Bello was put in
operation on September 6, and most of the
change -urgested b, the "trying out" of the
past twu month; has e been made, or have been
determined up.un. It has a capacity of 500
cubic yards an hour, but the barge service is
not sufficient to carr\ away more than 3,500
ards daily, which is the amount required for
the concrete at Gatun. The average daily
performance. 12 hours a da, in October, was
3,0401) cubic yards. This new crusher is
supplementary, to the plant of two No. 9 and
four No. 6 crushers already installed at
Porto Bell,,. uhich has been furnishing crushed
rock for Gatun Locks and Spillway for over
a sear. It- purpose is to lessen the amount
of s-econdar. blasting or "dobeing" necessary
to break the rock as it comes from the quarry
into pieces -mall enough to be handled by the
No. 0 crushers of the original plant. It does
this work 'o well that already a saving of 50
per cent in the amount of dynamite used has
been effected. The new crusher takes rock
as it comes from the quarry, and only pieces
that cannot be handled by the 'team shovels
now require secondary breaking. The open-
ings on either side of the "spider,"which spans
the top of the crusher, art 42 inches wide and
96 inches long. The nwc" conveyor, which
takes rock from the cruishtr- to the storage
bin, is working c.atisfactorily and is capable
of handling 400 cubic yards an hour.

Work In this Section of Atlantic Division Resumed
on October 24.
Excavation was resumed in what is known
as the Mindi section of the Atlantic Division
on October 24, when the 20.inch suction
dredge No. 86, which has been pumping into
the western section of Gatun Dam, was with-
drawn from that work and began operations
at Mindi. This piece of excavation is through
a low hill. It was begun in July, 1907, when a
steam shovel was set at work, and it continued
as a steam shovel job up to the middle of
November, 1909, when the pit was flooded
during heavy rains and work ceased At
that time, 1,476,821 cubic yards had been
excavated and it was estimated that there
remained about 973,000 cubic yards, more than
half of which is rock.
For some time prior to the flooding of the
pit the steam shovels had been working below
sea level, and one of them began a cut on the
bottom of the Canal at 427! feet below sea
level a few weeks before the suspension of
work. The pit was kept dry by a pumping
plant and, although only a narrow dike
separated the excavation from the French
canal on the north, there was little trouble
from seepage water. At the south end of the
cut along the east side the shovels were exca-
vating a quantity of mud which was sliding
on slick rock into the prism. On the east
side and about midway between the two ends
another mass of loose dirt, which it is said
was pumped from the French canal behind
a row of piling, was moving into the prism.
This loose material, which is more expensive
than rock to excavate by steam shovel, will
be pumped out by the suction dredge now at
work there. After this has been done the
dredge will be withdrawn, the dike between
the excavation pit and the French canal
restored, and the water in the pit pumped
out, in order that the steam shovels may re-
sume their work and remove the remaining
Defective Roof Gutters.
A resolution has been signed by the Guoer-
nor of Panama amending decree No. 38 of
1906 relative to defective roof gutters in the
city of Panama. The decree of 1906 em-
powered the Panama Health Office to alter
the gutters to conform to sanitary conditions,
but its operation was not wholly successful.
The resolution which was officially published
on Saturday. October 29, renders it imperative
for all owners having defective gutters to call
on the Health Officer within 48 hours and
consult with him as to the best means of
placing them in repair. Ten days are given
in which to make the necessary changes. If
the property owners fail to comply with these
provisions, the Health Office is empowered to
take steps to repair the defective gutters or
to remove them if they are not indispensable.
The Health Office inspectors are engaged
in making a house to house inspection with
the object of locating all unsanitary roof
gutters and their work in this respect has been
done on all lateral streets in the city up to
Seventh street. Gutters are considered de-
fective when pools of water are found by the
inspectors to have collected in them after
rains, thereby creating favorable breeding
places for mosquitos. The roof gutters
found in good condition are permitted to re-
main, although the gutter is eliminated in all
new construction. There are no roof gutters

on the houses erected in the recently improved
districts of Guachapali, Santa Cruz and Cocoa
Grove; it is only in the old part of the city
that the\ exist, although even there many were
removed in the city-wide crusade against
mosquitos during the years 1905 and 1906.
Anti-Cigarette League.
Interest in the work of the Boys' Anti-
cigarette League of Gnrgona is well sustained,
good membership both in the junior and senior
sections being maintained. The senior sec-
tion, under the leadership of Mrs. A. L.
Hackenberg, has been engaged in the study
of the scout movement, with the object of
organizing for field work as soon ahs a suitable
leader can be found. The section had a
Hallowe'en party in October, the evening
being spent in stury-telling and a candy frolic.

Under the direction of Mrs. J. B. Marsh, the
junior section meets one evening in each week.
Fifteen new books have been added to the
circulating library and a number of games
hase been purchased. A prize fur bringing
in the largest number of members during
the past year has been awarded to Carl
Visit of the Mining Engineers.
A party of about 120 persons, members of
the American Institute of Mining Engineers
and their friends, arrived at Colon on the
Przz August li'rlhelm from New York on
November I for a visit of seven days on the
Isthmus. The ship called at Havana and
Kingston on the trip down and will call at
Port Limon. Kingston, and Fortune Island
on the return.


The estimate of the amount of concrete to be laid in the locks at Pedro Miguel and Nliraflores
during October was 82,500 cubic yards. At the close of work on October 30, all but 2,954
cubic yard. of this amount had been placed. On Monday, October 31, 3,537 cubic yards were
laid in the two locks, bringing the combined total up to 83,083 cubic yard- and exceeding the
estimateby 583 cubicyards. Both plants ereoperated on the last twoSundaysol the month.
On Sunday, October 23, the two mixers in No. I berm crane at Pedro Miguel were operated for
a total of 6,1: mi.er hours, and at Miraflores, two ,'.v-cubic %ard mixers were operated for a total
of 14 mixer hours. On Sunday, October 30, the construction and auxiliary plants at both locks
eare operated on full time.
The concrete work in the Pedro Miguel Locks is a little over 44 per cent completed, 369,285
cubic yards out of a total of 837,400 having been laid at the close of work on October 29. The
quantity placed in both the Pedro Miguel and Nliraflores Locks during October-8.3,083 cubic
,ard--exceeds the previous best monthly record, that of September, 1910, by about 14,000
cubic yards.
The record of concrete placed during each of the six 8-hour working da.s of last week at the
Pedro Miguel Locks, as well as that of Sunday, October 23. is shown in the following statement:

On Friday. October 28, No. 6, one Of the new .'-cubic yard mixers, in service at these locks
broke, it is believed, all local records of output for a mixer of this size in one day, by producing
190 cubic yards in 7 b! hours actual working time, an average of one batch of concrete every two
and one-half minutes. The same mixer nearly duplicated the performance on Sunday, October
30, when it turned out 186 cubic yards.


Nozvmber 2, 1910.



A Cap of Leas than 5,000 Feet Remaining to be
The breakwater which extends from the
shore at Balboa, parallel with the channel of
the Canal at the Pacific entrance, has been
completed about two-thirds of the distance to
Naos Island, and the gap between the end of
the dump and the island is less than 5,000
feet long.
The method of construction is to drive a
trestle out into the water and make a fill by
dumping rock and earth dug from Culebra
Cut, and when this fill is completed to drive
another section of trestle. Dumping of spoil
was begun in October, 1907, and the progress
was rapid in proportion to the amount of
material deposited until the channel, made
by the French as an entrance into the basin
at Balboa docks, was reached. Then slide
after slide occurred to retard the filling. Time
and again a whole section of trestle with its
half made embankment would disappear over
night; then new trestle would be made and
the dumping continued. Since August, 1909.
in fourteen months of continuous dumping,
the breakwater has been extended toward
the island only 2,500 feet, but it has been
broadened and made stable almost its en-
tire length of 2 miles. In several places
on the dike the sum of the daily vertical settle-
ments of the roadbed amounted to over 60
feet in three months. In the fiscal year 1910
there weredumpedon the breakwater 182,000
cubic yards of rock and earth. Not one foot
of the last mile of track now rests on the
trestle on which it was originally built.
The old French channel has been cro-sed,
and there are indications of firmer bottom as
the trestle nears the island. Even now the
70-foot piles sink through 30 feet of soft mud
before they find firm ground, and one day last
week the outermost end of the fill sank several
feet, making it necessary to suspend filling
until the tracks could be bolstered up to the
proper level. It is hoped the time has passed
when section. of the trestle and embankment
will sink below the surface of the water,
because the sinkings are becoming less mark-
ed as the work advances. At low tide the
nature of these sinkings may be seen, be-
cause on either side of the breakwater a
beach of mud has been formed by material
pushed out and up by the rock fill. On
August 9, 1909, a clapet ran into the trestle
carrying away several hundred feet of track
which sank into the mud of the bottom. Some
of the rail was fished out, but much of it was
not recovered. Recently this lost rail has
been forced to the surface on top of the mud
which the rock fill is displacing.
After each sinking of the trestle the tracks
are bolstered up and the dumping is renewed.
The amount that can be dumped is limited
onlyby thecondition of the trestle. From 23 to
40 trains consisting of 20 cars of 20 cubic yards
capacity each are dumped at Balboa every
day, and in the fiscal year 1910 the amount
dumped there and in the breakwater dike was
3,835,091 cubic yards. The filling can be
done more rapidly than the piles can be driven
and the limitation on the breakwater con-
struction is therefore that of the trestle stand-
ing and allowing the fill to be completed.

At the request of the Government of Pana-
ma, the pathologist of the Commission,
Dr. S. T. Darling, has been directed to visit

the Pacora valley in the province of Panama

tality among the horses on the stock breeding

It frequently happen. that injuries to Ameri-
cans in the city of Panama are the result ol
personal violence [ollouning a violation of the
law, and in such a ca-e the Canal Zone Govern-

Pacific Division Dredges.
The Pacific Division dredges, with the ex-
ception of the Culebra, the Marmot and the
Gopher, are working in the Canal prism be-
tween the shipways and the zone of hydraulic
operations. The sucti,n dredge Cu!ebra is
working out at sea excavating loose material
that has been drawn into the channel by
currents and tidal wash. The Alarmot is at
work opposite the shipua,,s widening the
channel leading to the ;iteol the new Panama
railroad dock to 450 feet. The Gopzer is
engaged in dredging sand at Puma Chame.
The Mole is making an under water cut on
the west bank of the Canal opposite the sand
dock. The Badger is making a pioneer cut to
35 feet on the west bank of the Canal, near
station No. 2155, and is advancing at the
rate of about 10 feet every 24 hours. Ahead
of the dredge is a rock shoal which is being
drilled and blasted. The dipper dredge
