At the Porto Bello Clubhouse.

The entertainment given on Saturday night, August
20, was thoroughly enjoyed. Mr. Sweet and Mr. Wash-
burn, as blind and dumb colored musicians, gave an
interesting sketch. Two three-minute boxing bouts
were put on by Bowen and Sweeney, and Morales and
Fleckstein. The mock wedding was voted as the best
thing that has been given this season. Invitations had

and "presents for the bride." The characters were as
follows: Bride, Mr. Westervelt; groom, Mr. Washburn;
bridesmaid, Mr. Cavanagh; best man, Mr. Geer;

NOTES OF PROGRESS.



Empire-Paraiso Highway Open.

The section of the transisthmian highway
between Paraiso and Empire has been com-
pleted and is open to traffic. It is 18,302 feet
long, 18 feet wide on the sub-grade, and has
a metaled surface 12 feet wide. It runs
along the east side of Culebra Cut from the
suspension bridge at Empire to a point oppo-
site Culebra, where it turns eastward in order
to run back of Gold Hill into Paraiso. Work
on the section to join Paraiso with Corozal
has been resumed, and when this link is com-
pleted there will be a wagon road from Pana-
ma to Gorgona, nearly half-way across the
Isthmus.

The Empire-Paraiso road was built by
penitentiary convicts under the direction of
the municipal engineering section of the Cen-
tral Division. They excavated 17,457 cubic
yards of material for the sub-grade and placed
all the metal, 8,650 feet of the length being
covered with 2,563 cubic yards of gravel, and
9,652 feet with 2,860 cubic yards of stone.
The prisoners were 53 days in preparing the
sub-grade, collecting from the sides of the
road, breaking, and spreading the stone.
Rainy Season Excavation Record.

All previous records for excavation in the
rainy season were broken in the Central Divi-
sion and in Culebra Cut during the month of
August, when 1,377,992 cubic yards of rock
and earth were taken out of the Cut and
234,404 cubic yards from the Chagres section.
