NOTES OF PROGRESS.



Panama Railroad Hotel in Colon.

In accordance with a plan agreed upon by
the President on his visit to the Isthmus in
November, 1910, the Panama Railroad Com-
pany will construct a new hotel in Colon, on
the site occupied by the present Washington
House and adjacent buildings. It is probable
that the material will be reinforced concrete.
B. G. Goodhue of the firm of Cram, Goodhue
& Ferguson, which has charge of the addi-
tions to the Military Academy at West
Point, has been requested to confer with the
President of the railroad company with
regard to plans. Mr. Goodhue has made a
study of Spanish architecture and it is probable
that the new hotel will be of that class.



Highest Excavation Record In Central Division.

The total excavation in the Central Divi-
sion for the month of March, 1911, amounted
to 2,032,523 cubic yards, of which 2,012,469
cubic yards were excavated from the Canal
prism, 13,618 from the Obispo diversion and
6,436 from other outside work.

From the Culebra section of the Central
Division (Culebra Cut,) 1,729,588 cubic
yards were excavated and from the Chagres
section, 302,935 cubic yards.

The total excavation from the Canal prism
(2,012,469) is the largest ever made in any one
month in the Central Division since the
commencement of work by the United States,
the largest previous records having been
1,966,294 in March, 1909, and 1,987.714 in
March, 1910. The total excavation in the
Culebra section (1,729,5S8 cubic yards) was
also the largest ever made in a single month,
the highest previous records having been
1,434,597 in March, 1909, and 1,509,728 cubic
yards in March, 1910.

The excavation of March, 1911, is undoubt-
edly the highest excavation in the prism that
will ever be made within the limits of the
Central Division for the reason that, owing
to the completion of steam shovel work in
the Chagres section within the next two or



three weeks, except for two small remaining
pieces which will be taken out in the next dry
season, 10 shovels which worked in the month
just passed, will be out of commission so far
as future work in the Central Division is
concerned.



Unloading Record in Pedro Miguel District.
On March 28, six unloaders working in the
Pedro Miguel district of the Central Division,
unloaded 82 Lidgerwood trains; and in addi-
tion there were handled seven 10-yard dump
trains containing a total of 33,610 cubic yards
of rock and earth. The Lidgerwood trains
were composed of 20 cars, each car containing
19 cubic yards of material, the 10-yard dump
trains being composed of 35 cars, each car
containing 10 cubic yards. The material
contained in these cars was wasted on the
Mirafiores and Balboa dumps, except seven
Lidgerwood trains, or 2,660 cubic yards,
which were dumped on the Panama railroad
relocation.

The highest previous record was on Jan-
uary 7, when 80 Lidgerwood trains and seven
10-yard dump trains, containing a total of
32,850 cubic yards of rock and earth were
unloaded.



New Fire Station at Cristobal.

The railway tracks to the proposed concrete
docks at Cristobal will leave the main line
of the Panama railroad at the entrance to
the village, and run to the waterfront through
the street on which the present fire station
is situated. This will make it difficult for
the apparatus to leave the house quickly and,
in case a train happened to be running by
when an alarm came in, there would be both
delay and danger, at a time when a few min-
utes might make the difference between a
small and a large fire. The station will be
abandoned as a fire house, therefore, and a new
station will be erected on the water front, at
the corner of Roosevelt avenue and 11th
street, oposite the Cristobal commissary,
where the old rest house now stands. The
new building will be 75 by 56 feet in dimen-
sions, and two stories high. On the ground
floor will be space for the fire apparatus, with
four 'doors opening upon Roosevelt avenue,
stalls for eight horses, and a storeroom, and a
blacksmith shop. On the second floor there
will be offices, a reading room, a room for the
men to sleep in, and a hay storage room.



Sidewalks in Canal Zone Villages.
Sidewalks to be constructed in Cristobal,
Gatun, and Ancon from this time forth will
be made of concrete, and sidewalks in other
Canal Zone villages will be built of the best
material available at the time and place.
The construction of board walks will not be
continued, because they rot out quickly and
the cost of maintaining them is therefore
heavy. In Culebra, walks have been built
recently of rock screenings from Ancon quarry,
at an average cost of 40 cents per square yard



for 1,107 feet of walk four feet wide. This
class of walk is adapted only for the villages
that will not be permanently occupied by
Government forces after the completion of
the Canal. In the permanent stations con-
crete walks costing one dollar or less a square
yard will be constructed, because the low cost
of upkeep over a term of years will make them
the most economical kind of walk.



Fireproof Construction In Colon.

The Panama railroad has been directed to
establish a storage pile for gravel in or near
Colon from which people who wish to erect
concrete buildings in that city may draw-
supplies of gravel. The price will be as low
as possible, because it is desired to encourage
fireproof construction. This movement was
begun some weeks ago, and the municipal
authorities now have under advisement a
regulation forbidding any but fireproof con-
struction in certain areas, especially those
made available for buildings by the filling of
the lowlands back of the present inhabited
section. The gravel will be taken from the
Chagres River above Gamboa Bridge and
hauled to Colon, and enough will be stored to
supply the demand. Concrete made from
this gravel has been used with good results
by the railroad in culverts and other permanent
structures.

It is proposed also to make concrete blocks
for sale at the lowest practicable price. This
matter is under advisement by the General
Superintendent of the railroad and the Chief
Quartermaster of the Commission for the pur-
pose of determining how the blocks may be
manufactured most economically.



Explosives for 1912.

It is estimated that ten million pounds of
dynamite will be required to carry on the
Canal and Panama railroad work in the fiscal
year ending June 30, 1912, and bids for that
amount will be opened at the Washington
office on April 14. The amount may be
reduced or increased by 20 per cent at the
option of the Commission. Saltpeter dyna-
mite is specified, and the materials will be
examined at the manufacturing plant, and
analyses will be made to determine the vari-
ation in percentage of nitroglycerine. If
there is a variation of three per cent or more
from the contract strength, the dynamite
will be rejected, and for a variation of more
than one per cent and less than three, the
dynamite will be accepted at a reduction of
15 cents per hundred pounds for each re-
duction of one per cent below the full con-
tract percentage. Three classes are speci-
fied — 45 per cent nitroglycerine in 8 by lj
inch cartridges, 6,500,000 pounds; 60 per
cent, 3,300,000 pounds, in 8 by \\ inch car-
tridges, and 200,000 pounds in cartidges 8 by
2 inches.

The quantity estimated for the present
fiscal year was 13,727,000 pounds, with the

option of increasing or decreasing it 50 per
cent, but it is not probable that more than
ten million pounds will be used. The orders
under the contract are placed from month to
month, the amount being determined by the
consumption during the previous month and
the probable needs of the coming month.
The quantities used each year, compared
with those specified for 1911 and 1912, are
as follows:



Year. Pounds.

1904* 500,000

1906 1,400,000

1907 5,087,000

1908 6,822,000

1911t 13.727,000

1912f 10,000.000



♦Amount purchased for 1904 lasted during 1905.
fEstimate.

Of the total estimated for 1912, about 63
per cent is for the Central Division for use in
Culebra Cut, 20 per cent for the Atlantic
Division, 11 per cent for the Pacific Division,
and 8 per cent for the Panama railroad re-
location.

The estimate for blasting supplies to be
used with the dynamite, provides for:

Blasting caps 580.000

Electric detonators —

10 feet long 28,000

16 feet long 49,000

20 feet long 155,000

24 feet long 262,000

25 feet long 16.000

30 feet long 225,000

Safety fuse, feet 1,480.000

Tape, insulating, pounds 4,350

Wire, connecting, feet 636,000

Wire. lead, feet 496,500

The amount of blasting supplies specified

may be reduced or increased by 50 per cent

or less at the option of the Commission.

Gatun Dam Spillway.

The concrete work in the spillway of Gatun
Dam is over 52 per cent completed, 130,184
cubic yards out of a total of 250,000 having
been placed up to the close of work on April 1,
