time ago for the necessary material, but only
one proposal was received in response to the
advertisement for bids for the cable, and the
price, 48 cents a foot, was considered exces-
sive. It has been arranged to construct a
telephone line of iron poles, with their bases set
in concrete, and the work will be entered upon
within a few days, starting at Caimito and
proceeding north to Monte Lirio. At Monte
Lirio the relocation work is still in progress,
but it is expected that it will be completed
by the time the telephone construction force
reaches there. The new pole route will carry
20 No. 10 copper circuits. At the south end
of the relocation, comprising the section be-
tween Paraiso and Corozal, the pole line will



parallel the railroad right-of-way for most
of the distance, but will diverge at the
approach to Miraflores tunnel, in order to go
around the high part of the hill. There is no
immediate demand for the construction of
this part of the line, and it will not be started
until after the Gamboa-Gatun section is com-
pleted.

The telephone line to Toro Point has been
finished and is in service. It carries two No.
10 copper circuits, and there is provision for
one additional circuit. There are five sta-
tions at present, three on one circuit and two
on the other. A small switchboard, taken
from the old stock in store, will probably be
installed there in the near future.

A plan has been adopted for consolidating
the number of calls during the busy hours of
the morning. From 8 to 8.45 a. m., one of the
trunks from Cristobal to Empire is reserved
for the use of the branch commissaries in
placing their orders for the day with the order
department at Cristobal. Each commissary
is called up in its turn, and by this method
time is saved.

Improvements are to be made in the tele-
phone facilities at the Hotel Tivoli. The ex-
isting switchboard will be replaced by another
taken from stock now on the Isthmus, but
rewired and simplified, and a new system of
cables to the various floors will be installed.



Concrete in Gatun Locks.

The concrete work in Gatun Locks is 37 per
cent completed, 781,100.'. cubic yards out of a
total of 2,095,000 having been placed at the
close of work on October 8. The rate of ad-
vance is about 18,000 cubic yards a week.
One of the cableways is operating over the
upper locks in which the concrete work is
nearly done. The other three cableways are
placing concrete in the east side wall and the
upper gate sill of the middle locks. The floor
of these locks has been completed for the full
width and half the length, and the construc-
tion of the culvert under the west side wall
has been begun.

Between 3 and 4 o'clock on the afternoon of
October 6, all hourly records for the cableways
were broken by tower No. 1. Strand A of
this cableway placed 49 yards, and strand B,
50 yards of concrete during the hour. The
concrete foreman at that time receiving the
material was H. H. Arras, and the operators in
the tower were H. L. Fomon and V. M. Clay-
bourn.

The amount of concrete placed during the
week ending October 8, and the total to that
date, are shown in the following statement:

TABERNILLA DUMP.



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 is the 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 4,000-foot stretch of level
dump at 20 feet above 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 follows:

Cu. Yds.

Tabernilla 15,080.749

Miraflores 6,963,135

Balboa and Naos Breakwater 9.397,215

Relocation of P. R. R. (Gamboa to Caimito) 4,508,219

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 will be beneath the surface of
Gatun Lake. Dumping at this point was
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 Tabernilli;
that placed in other large dumps of the Central



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

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
orange peel cranes.

The high record for the month was made by
shovel No. 212, working 24 days in the Culebra
district, which excavated 52,250 cubic yards
of rock and earth. The second best record
of the month was made by shovel No. 208,
working 24 days in the Culebra district, which
excavated 51 ,775 cubic yards of rock and earth.

The best record for a shovel of the 70-ton
class was made by shovel No. 108, working 25
days in the Chagres district, which excavated
35,621 cubic yards of earth.

Shovel No. 208, working in the Culebra
district, made the high record for one day by
excavating 3,192 cubic yards of rock and earth
on September 26.

Shovel No. 108, working in the Chagres
district, excavated 1,890 cubic yards of earth
on September 17, and this was the high record
for one day for a 70-ton shovel during the
month.

Except where noted, monthly records are
computed by place measurement, while the
daily records are based on car measurement.
The best records for the month and for one
day in each district are shown below:
