THE CANAL RECORD



301



P. R. R. INSURANCE.



No Policies will be Carried Hereafter Covering
Fire or Marine Losses.

The Sundry Civil Act of March 4, 1911,
contained a provision that, "Hereafter, the
Panama Railroad Company shall carry no
insurance to cover marine or fire losses, nor
make any further payment on the principal
or interest on notes heretofore given by it
to the United States for moneys appropri-
ated for its use."

This law supersedes that of the Acts of 190S,
1909, and 1910, which provides that appro-
priations for Canal work might be used to
reimburse the Panama railroad, for any ma-
rine and fire losses, and that the railroad com-
pany should no longer carry insurance. Under
the new law, the railroad will neither carry
insurance, nor be reimbursed for marine and
fire losses from Canal funds, the Govern-
ment policy of not carrying insurance, being
established.

During the nine years and one month pre-
ceding July 1, 1908, the Panama Railroad
Company paid for insurance: On account of
the steamship line, aggregating $296,402.34;
and for the 25 months ending July, 1908,
premiums were paid on account of the rail-
road amounting to 848,529.20.

During this period underwriters reimbursed
for losses, as follows: On account of steamship
line $118,470.57; on account of the railroad
$9,082.79.



Motor Car Repair Shop at Culebra.

An addition will be made to the motor car
garage at Culebra, which will provide space
for the installation of a lathe and other
machinery for making ordinary repairs to
motor cars. Some of the equipment for this
purpose will be transferred from the Cocoli
shop of the Pacific Division, which was shut
down a short time ago. Three additional
tracks will also be provided, making four in
all, three of them to be used in housing the
motor cars, and the fourth as a repair track,
with a pit underneath. On the lower floor
of the building, as enlarged, there will be, in
addition to the track space and main repair
shop, a forge room, store room, and quarters
for three flagmen. On the second floor are
quarters for three motor car drivers. There
are six motor cars in the service of the Com-
mission, one in each of the three engineering
divisions, and three stationed at Culebra.



Postal Business and Canal Zone Revenues.

The report of the Director of Posts for the
month of April shows that 17,933 money
orders were issued, amounting to $450,472.57.
Of this amount, 8335,854.11 was issued paya-
ble in the United States, $113,893.76 payable
in the Canal Zone. 8565.70 in Martinique, and
$159 in Costa Rica. The fees collected
amounted to $1,976.87, and the amount paid
and repaid was $121,382.72.

Postal sales during the month amounted
to $6,051, and newspaper postage $0.10.

The revenue collections for the month were,

as follows:

Distillation licenses $264.16

Insurance companies' fees 50.00

Motor vehicle licenses 37.00

Taxes, licenses, etc 10,399.48

Total $10,750.64



Care of Disabled and Indigent Canal Workers.

The following bill has been introduced in

the House of Representatives by Representa-



tive G. W. Kipp of Pennsylvania, and has
been referred to the Committee on Interstate
and Foreign Commerce:

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of
Representatives of the United States of Amer-
ica in Congress assembled, That on and after
July first, nineteen hundred and eleven, all
disabled or indigent employes of the United
States of America on the Panama Canal,
or works adjacent thereto, shall be admitted,
kept, and sustained by the United States of
America in the several soldiers' homes of
the United States, under such rules and regu-
lations as the Isthmian Canal Commission
may determine.
