cumulative leave for each month's actual service in
excess of twelve months to a total of not more than
eighty-four days.

An employe who has accumulated eighty-four days'
leave, but does not propose to leave the service, may
be allowed forty-two days' leave of absence with pay
and may be credited with the forty-two days still due
him. and may again accumulate an additional forty-two
days, not to exceed a total of eighty-four days, as pro-
vided above.

This resolution amends the clause in the resolution
of June 11, 1907, reading: "* * * * leave is not to be
cumulative, unless an employe is prevented by the
Government from taking such leave when due."

Geo. W. Goethals.
Chairman and Chief Engineer.



Culebra. C. Z., November 8, 1910.
Heads of Departments and Divisions:

Referring to circular No. 132-h being issued this
date relative to granting employes cumulative leave;

It appears probable that the privilege granted in
this resolution of the Commission will be taken advan-
tage of very largely, and that during the calendar year
1911 divisions which have heretofore been carrying
extra men, especially during the summer months to fill
vacancies on account of employes absent on leave, can
probably reduce their extra force on that account,
thereby resulting in a saving to the Commission.

It is hereby directed that the head of each department
and division ascertain to what extent employes will
accumulate the leaves which will fall due in 1911,
making a report of the number of men in each class of
employment who will probably take advantage of this
provision. Employes should be given to understand
that this request is for the purpose of securing prelimi-
nary information regarding the approximate number of
men who will defer their leaves, and that they are not
thereby bound to defer their leaves if they should change
their minds later. As soon as this information is
compiled, steps should be taken to meet the situation
which will arise, by reducing the number of extra men
and by not filling vacancies which occur, and which can
be taken care of without taking on additional force.
Geo. W. Goethals.
Chairman and Chief Engineer.



Transfer of Engineers and Conductors.

Culebra, C. Z., November 9, 1910.
Circular No. 348-a:

When engineers and conductors are transferred from
one division to another on account of reduction of
force, men so transferred shall retain all privileges to
which they are entitled by seniority the same as though
they were originally employed in the division to which
they are transferred. Geo. W. Goethals,

Chairman and Chief Engineer.



Repair of Typewriters.
Culebra, C Z.. November 11, 1910.
Circular No. 359:

When a typewriting machine is in need of repairs for
the making of which the services of a typewriter repair
man are required, the district quartermaster will be
informed of the fact, together with the name of the
maker and serial number of the machine, of the building
and office in which the machine is located, and with the
date by which the repairs should be completed.

Th? district quartermaster will telephone the above
information to the superintendent of the Mechanical



Division, Gorgona shops, and the latter will send the
repair man to make the repairs.

Before leaving the district the repair man will ascer-
tain whether or not any additional machines requiring
repairs have been reported to the district quartermas-
ter.

All departments and divisions should cooperate with
the district quartermaster in the endeavor to reduce
the number of trips to each district to a minimum.
Geo. W. Goethals,
Chairman, Isthmian Canal Commission.
President, Panama Railroad Company.



Construction and Repair of Sidewalks.

Culebra, C. Z., November 14, 1910.
Circular No. 183-P:

Effective December 1, 1910, the construction and
repair of sidewalks, including wood, gravel and cinders,
will be performed by the Quartermaster's Department,
except in such cases as the sidewalks are constructed
simultaneously with roads which they parallel, when
the work will be performed by the same force which
builds the roads; and also except in such cases as a dif-
ferent method of construction may be ordered by me.
Geo. W. Goethals,
Chairma?i and Chief Engineer .



Colored Cotton Waste.

Culebra. C Z., November 14, 1910.
Circular No. 314-C:

Until further notice colored cotton waste will be used
as standard for all general purposes on the Isthmus, and
the use of white waste will be confined to such special
purposes as motor cars, in filters, etc.. for which the col-
ored waste is not suitable. All storehouse requisitions
for white waste will state the purpose for which
required. Geo. W. Goethals,

Chairmayi, Isthmian Canal Commission.

President, Panama Railroad Company.



Reduction in Force of Artisans.

Culebra, C. Z., November 14, 1910.
Circular No. 262-C:

Whenever a reduction in the force of artisans em-
ployed in any shop can be made, a list of the employes
whose services can be dispensed with will be forwarded
to the inspector of shops, and the latter will either indi-
cate the place and position to which they will be trans-
ferred or the action to be taken in their cases.

No artisan will hereafter be given five days' notice
or discharged on account of reduction in force, except
by the direction of the inspector of shops.

Geo. W. Goethals, Chairman.
