convenient transfer to the chamber crane
buckets. In the operation the trolley will
deposit a bucket on a swinging platform,
which will then be swung horizontally to either
side under the mixer spout. After receiving
the concrete at the mixer the bucket will be
swung back to its original central position,
thence hoisted, delivered and emptied. In the
construction of the center wall, the concrete
from the bucket on the berm crane will be
dumped into the bucket of the chamber crane
by means of a transfer chute conveniently situ-
ated on the outside walls. The spout of the
transfer chute is hinged and counterbalanced,
and will be swung into position only after the
bucket of the chamber crane has been deposited
in its proper position to receive the concrete.
The chute is also provided with a gate for
temporarily retaining the concrete, so that the
bucket on the berm crane will not be delayed
in case the chamber crane bucket is not in
place. The chute is made of steel, mounted
on three stiff legs, each having a ball and soc-
ket jointed base plate, so as to adjust
themselves to any uneven surface. It can be
moved from place to place rapidly by the
trolley on the chamber crane. Upon receiving
the concrete fromthe transfer chute, the cham-
ber crane bucket will be carried by trolley to
the center wall and there emptied. It is
estimated that under this arrangement each
of the cranes will be capable of handling and
delivering concrete to the walls at a maximum
elseif (getClientWidth() > 430)
rate of 100 cubic yards an hour.

toward the side wall with a length of 81 feet
6 inches. The arms, together with the tower
trusses, support a line of underhung trolley
tracks which form a continuous runway of 191
feet. The cranes handle buckets of the double
leaf drop-bottom type, having a capacity of
two cubic yards each. They are dumped
under control of the operator in his cab by
means of a hold line, operated by a 3j-horse-
power series wound motor located on trolley.
The electrical equipment on these cranes is of
the same type as that on the berm cranes.
The tower movement, however, is operated by
a separate motor controlled with a standard
passing the chamber cranes, and, in addition,
can be made to :>wing through a horizontal arc
either side of the center, so that the outer end
will have a movement of 50 feet.
The operation of the cranes along the berms
of the locks dispenses with the transportation
system in use at Pedro Miguel, and makes it
possible for them to place all the concrete in
the side walls. It is proposed to use but one
mixer to each of the berm cranes, but pro-
vision has been made for the installation of
two, if desired. The boom trolley will deliver
concrete in 2-cubic yard buckets, either into
the forms of the outer walls, or to a point of
The motive power for the movements
of the boom and trolley on each berm crane
will be furnished by a 47-horsepower mo-
tor. For controlling these movements two
master switches, one change-over switch,
and one clapperboard will be installed. The
trolley master switch will have three different
sets of contacts', one set is used when the
boom is in a horizontal position; one when
the extreme end is below horizontal, and one
when it is above horizontal. Three sets of
contacts are made necessary on account of the
different dynamic braking requirements for

vehicle of similar construction or operation, or by
means of any carriage, surrey, wagon, cart, or other
conveyance drawn by horses or mules. He Is also
empowered and directed, at any time when circum-
stances may appear to warrant, to revise or change
such rates as may have been theretofore fixed by him.
Said rates shall be reasonable.
Section 2. Immediately upon fixing such rates of
charges, or upon any revision or change thereof being
made by him, the Head of the Department of Civil
Administration shall promulgate said rates or charges,
or any revision thereof, in the following manner, to

At the various police stations of the Canal Zone; at
the various passenger stations of the Panama railroad
in the Canal Zone and in the Republic of Panama;
at the post-office buildings in the Canal Zone, and at
any other points as may seem to him proper, in order
that due notice thereof to the public may be given.
Section 3. The Head of the Department of Civil
Administration shall also cause to be printed a suffi-
cient number of cards or pamphlets containing such
rates of charges so fixed . or revised by him , as may be
necessary to furnish a copy thereof to each person

made the duty of all such persons to secure from the

ously posted or displayed in each such conveyance so
used or operated; and a failure so to do will consti-
tute a violation of this ordinance.

ordinance directed, any person who shall charge and
collect for the transportation of any person over the
streets or roads of the Canal Zone in either of the

nance; and any person who has received for himself
or others such transportation in the Canal Zone, and

scribed and promulgated, shall, likewise, be held to
have committed a violation of this ordinance. Pro-
vided, however, a rate different from that promulgated
hereunder may be charged and paid if the parties to
the transaction may agree thereon, but if there be

rate shall prevail.
Section 5. Any person, firm, or corporation who
fails to comply with any requirement or provision of
this ordinance, or who charges and receives any rate
in excess of that prescribed by the Head of the De-
partment of Civil Administration, or who refuses to
pay any rate prescribed by the Head of the Depart-

visions of this ordinance, shall be held to be gmlty
