STREET RAILWAY.



Construction Resumed in Panama — License for
Canal Zone.

Work has been resumed on the street rail-
way in the city of Panama, which will connect
with a similar railway in the Canal Zone, the
legal obstacles to the continuance of the con-
struction having 1 een removed. The main
line will extend rough Central avenue in
Panama to and around Cathedral Park in
one direction, and along the Sabanas road
in another direction, thus passing the railroad
station. The Sabanas road line will follow
the highway, at the side of the roadway, to the
Canal Zone line, and then will enter upon a
private right-of-way and parallel the highway
to a point near the police station. Three spur
branches will extend from this trunk line.
The first will run from the Panama railroad
station up the Tivoli road to the Hotel Tivoli,
skirting DeLessep's Park and from this, a
spur will extend past the fire station in Ancon
to the laundry, which is at one of the entrances
to the hospital reservation. The second
branch will run from Central avenue down
East 16th and East 15th streets to the old
coal wharf of the Panama railroad, where the
power house and car barns will be situated.
At Northern avenue, a spur will run from this
branch parallel with the water front to the
public market. The third branch will run
from Central avenue at Santa Ana Plaza down
C street to West 16th street, thence south one
block to the Balboa road, thence to Balboa
docks. In the city of Panama the tracks
will run on the streets, but in the Canal Zone,
although permitted to follow the highway,
they may not encroach on the roadbed.

On October 29, 1906, Henry T. Cook ob-
tained from the municipality of Panama a 50-
yearfranchise to operate an electric street rail-
way, and to tear up and occupy the streets of
the city for that purpose. He then made
application to the Isthmian Canal Commis-
sion for a franchise to construct and operate
an electric railway on the Balboa and Sabanas
roads. The Commission recommended grant-
ing a revocable license under practically the
terms of that which has been granted. The
work in Panama city involved the tearing up
of pavements laid by the United States Gov-
ernment, for which full payment had not been
made, and as no guarantee had been offered
that the pavements would be replaced, the
work was stopped by the Government of
Panama at the request of the United States.
The franchise from the city was contested in
the courts of Panama, and a decision was ren-
dered favorable to the grantee. The fran-
chise was then extended on condition that
work should be resumed on the project by
December 9, and a license for the railway in
the Canal Zone were granted. A corporation,
known as the Panama Public Utilities Corpo-
ration, was organized under the laws of Con-
necticut on July 18, 1910, with a capital of
$500,000, and bonds will be issued to the
amount of $300,000 for the purpose of ob-
taining money to construct the railway. The
rights of Mr. Cook will be assigned to this
corporation.

The license, under which the railway will
operate in the Canal Zone, was granted to Mr.
Cook by the President of the United States,
under date of December 16, 1910. It pro-
vides for the construction, maintenance, and
operation of a tramway system for the trans-
portation of passengers for profit between the
city of Panama in Panama, and Balboa, the



Sabanas, the Hotel Tivoli, and Ancon Hospi-
tal grounds in the Canal Zone, along routes to
be approved by the Chairman and Chief
Engineer of the Isthmian Canal Commission.
Under this license, the location of tracks,
poles, wires, and crossings shall be determined
by the Chairman and Chief Engineer, and
maintained in the manner required by him.
The grantee agrees to pay to the Government
of the Canal Zone an annual franchise tax of
one per cent on the gross earnings of the rail-
way system in the city of Panama and the
Canal Zone, and must keep his books at all
times at the disposal of the officers of the
Canal Zone Government. The property of
the railway system shall be subject to the
usual taxes imposed on property under the
laws of the Canal Zone. The right to regulate
the charges and conditions of service of the
railway system in the Canal Zone is reserved
to the Canal Zone authorities. The license
may be revoked by the President of the United
States, whenever he deems it necessary to
the public interest to terminate the privilege.
The rights to acquire private property by
purchase, and private property, except that
ot the Panama Railroad Company, by con-
demnation, are granted. The license is
granted upon the express condition that not
more than 300 meters of the pavements in
the city of Panama shall be removed at one
time, and that not more than 300 meters of
the pavement which has been removed shall
at any one time be in a state other than com-
plete restoration, this to apply to one whole
strip of pavement, or to the sum of the de-
tached sections. The license may be assigned
with the consent of the Secretary of War. The
grantee gives a bond in the sum of $10,000 for
the restoration and maintenance of the pave-
ments taken up or disturbed by him in the
city of Panama during a period of eight and
one-half years from November 30, 1910.
