NOTES OF PROGRESS.



Filter Plant at Gatun.

The detailed construction drawings for the
sedimentation basin, filter plant and clear
water well, which has been authorized for
installation in connection with the new Agua
Clara water works, are nearly completed, and
requisitions for controllers, valves, pipes and
other operating parts will go forward in the
near future.

The filters are to be what is known as the
"Rapid gravity" type, and are designed to
deliver a daily output of 2,500,000 gallons of
filtered water when three of the four beds are
in service. Each of the four beds will be
approximately 17 feet square, giving a rate of
filtration equivalent to 100,000,000 gallons per
24 hours per acre. The coagulation basin will be
about 75 feet square, divided into four com-
partments, and of such capacity as will give
sedimentation of about three hours' duration.

The filtered water will pass by gravity from
the controllers through the filters to a covered
clear water well having a capacity of about
225,000 gallons. From this well the water
will be pumped by the new electrical pump re-
cently installed, to a 400,000-gallon storage
tank at Gatun.

Canal Work in November.

The grand total of Canal excavation in
November was 3,006,037 cubic yards, which
is the greatest excavation for this month since
the beginning of the Canal work. A com-
parison with previous years since the work
•sv-as fully developed, follows:

Of the grand total in November, 2,659,046
cubic yards were charged to "work excava-
tion," and 346,991 cubic yards to "plant"
excavation. The dry excavation amounted to
1,605,182 cubic yards and was principally by
steam shovels. The dredges removed 1,348,-



611 cubic yards in addition to the amount
pumped into Gatun Dam by suction dredges,
and the sluicing plants, 52,244 cubic yards.
The progress on the locks at Gatun, Pedro
Miguel and Mirafloreb is referred to else-
where in this issue.

In the Atlantic Division, the total excava-
tion was 909.070 cubic yards, the greatest
amount of record for November. Of this
total, 119,510 cubic yards were "dry" exca-
vation, and the remainder was removed by
dredges in the Atlantic entrance.

The total excavation in the Central Divi-
sion — 1,470,436 cubic yards, likewise estab-
lished a new record in that division.

In the Pacific Division, the total excavation
was 626,531 cubic yards, 559,051 cubic yards
of which were taken out by the dredges at the
Pacific entrance, and 47,444 cubic yards by
the sluicing plant at Miraflores Locks.

A detailed statement of the excavation, and
a summary of the work on the locks and dams,

By "Work" Excavation is meant excavation actu-
ally made for one of the constituent parts of the Canal,
such as Prism, Diversions, or Locks, etc.; that is. it



represents material taken from the area to be occu-
pied by the Canal, and constitutes excavation useful
for the completed Canal.

By "Plant" Excavation is meant excavation outside
of any of the constituent parts of the Canal, such as
Prism, Diversions, or Locks, etc. It includes mate-
rial necessary to be excavated for construction pur-
poses only and is chargeable against the particular
plant item for which it is performed, such as Prism.
Diversions, Locks, etc.

Mooring Buoys at Pacific Entrance.

In view of the changes that are to be made
in the Balboa docks and the consequent cur-
tailment of berthing facilities at that point,
two mooring buoys and six mushroom anchors
will be put down at the Pacific entrance to the
Canal, on the right side close to the bank, so
that ships can be brought in to load from or
discharge into lighters, as the case may be.
These buoys will also be of assistance in
coaling war vessels. In addition to reducing
the cost of towing, it is believed they will
eliminate the possibility of lighters sinking
during heavy weather in the harbor. The
work will be done by the Pacific Division,
and its cost will be borne by the Panama
Railroad Company.



Panama Railroad Relocation from Gamboa to
Pedro Miguel.

A survey for the location of the Panama
railroad from Gamboa to Pedro Miguel, a
distance of about 10 miles, parallel with the
Canal, but at sufficient distance east of it to
avoid interruption from the sliding of the
banks, has been completed, and construction
of the new line has been begun.

On July 30, 1908, a report made on data
then available recommended the construction
of this section of the relocated line on the 45-
foot berm on the east side of Culebra Cut at
95 feet above sea level. On July 23, 1910, a
committee reporting on present conditions
recommended the construction of the line at
a distance east of the Canal, in order to avoid
interruptions to traffic during the time when
the banks of Culebra Cut are assuming their

final slope; to provide easier access to the
railroad than would be possible if the line
was constructed on the berra at elevation 95,
which is far below the natural level of the
ground throughout Culebra Cut; and to pro-
vide easy access to the contemplated bridge
over the Culebra Cut at Empire, over which
it is assumed a railroad will some day run.
This report was published in The Canal
Record of August 3.

The new location involves only two difficult
pieces of work — a cut of 250,000 cubic yards at
Paraiso, and a large rock cut at Bas Obispo.
Between these points the grading is largely
alternate cut and fill, and the work will
balance. The maximum curve on the new
line is 7 per cent, and the maximum grade is
1.25 per cent compensated for curvature.
The line on the berm at elevation 95 feet
through Culebra Cut will be completed for
construction purposes.



Concrete Piling at Gatun Locks.

The south or up stream center guide wall of
the Gatun Locks will extend 1,500 feet from
the south guard gate into the lake. About
350 feet of the wall nearest the lock will be
of solid construction, and the remaining 850
feet will be constructed as a reinforced con-
crete cellular wall supported by reinforced
concrete piles driven to depths from 20 to 70
feet.

About 3,500 piles will be needed in the con-
struction of the foundations. One part of
cement, one and one-half parts of sand, and
three parts of rock will be used in the construc-
tion of the piles, and they will be cast on two
platforms about 80 feet wide and 400 feet long,
located on the rock storage pile at New Gatun.
The piles will be allowed to remain on the
storage pile about six weeks betore driving.

Two steam pile drivers of the skid type,
having a maximum height above the ground
of approximately 93 feet, are under construc-
tion. They will be equipped with steam ham-
mers weighing over 10,000 pounds, 5,000
pounds of which will be in the driving or
striking part of the hammer, which will fall
42 inches and strike 60 blows a minute.

In order that the piling may not be crushed
by the impact of the hammer, a cast steel
driving head has been designed to fit over the
head of the pile. This driving head will con-
tain a cushion of sand and manila rope.



Vacancies on Canal Force.

The steamship companies in the Panama
service have been requested to post the fol-
lowing notice in conspicuous places at their
offices and wharves in the United States, in
order to discourage immigration to the Isth-
mus of persons in search of work:

EMPLOYMENT ON THE PANAMA CANAL.

There is at present a surplus of skilled and unskilled
labor on the Isthmus. To fill occasional vacancies in
the organization, for which local applicants with the
necessary qualifications cannot be found, the Isthmian
Canal Commission maintains an employment bureau
in its Washington office, under the direction of Captain
F. C. Boggs, General Purchasing Officer. Skilled
mechanics, and other persons witn special training and
experience, can frequently secure appointment by
application to him. or to one of the Commission's
authorized traveling employment agents.

Persons who may intend to seek employment on the
Isthmus will avoid unnecessary expense and disap-
pointment by addressing a written application to the
Isthmian Canal Commission, Washington, D. C, and



remaining in the the United States until they are ten-
dered an appointment.

Under present conditions there is but little likelihood
that any man who goes to the Isthmus at his own expense
and on his own initiative will find employment there.

Panama Canal Service Medal Association.

The annual meeting of the Panama Canal
Service Medal Association will be held in the



I. C. C. lodge hall at Gorgona on Sunday,
January 8, at 9.30 a. m. There will be an
election of officers. All proposed amend-
ments to the by-laws should be forwarded at
once to the undersigned. Charter member-
ship will close on December 31, 1910.

CONCRETE WORK IN THE LOCKS.



GATUN LOCKS.



Concrete work in Gatun Locks is about 46 per cent completed, 950,595 cubic yards, out of
a total of 2,085,000, having been placed at the close of work on December 10.

A statement of the amount of concrete placed in the locks each day for the week ending
December 10, and of the total, follows; and a similar statement for the work in the Spillway of
Gatun Dam is published elsewhere in this issue. The construction plant works 12 hours daily,
and the auxiliary plant 9 hours.
