Free Ertry Requests Approved in City of Panama.

In compliance with the request of the Government of Panama, in
the handling of requests for the free entry of goods for employees of
the United States Government on the Isthmus, copies will no longer
be forwarded to the Captain of the Port of Colon for approval but
three copies of approved requests will be forwarded to the Secretary
of Finance and Treasury, in the city of Panama, by the Executive
Secretary. To avoid delay, these will be delivered and called for by a
messenger of the Police and Fire Division.

This change does not affect the procedure of employees in submitting
the request (Form 164-2) in sextuplicate through the head of the
department or division or the procedure of forwarding the request
by the head of the department or division to the Executive Secretary;
the only change is in connection with the administration in Panama.

Balboa Harbor — A light, electric, red, flashing, 1 second light, 1 second dark, on the
top of shed on northern extremity Dock 4, Balbca Harbor, to mark the end of the
dock. Height of focal plane 45 feet.

Miraflores Approach, Southern end, West bank — A light, electric,*white, flashing,
1 second light, 1 second dark, focal plane 8 feet, exhibited from iron standard or small
wooden float, painted black, to mark the edge of the navigable channel, in 30 feet

Chester Harding,

Refrigeration Plant Installed at Pedro Miguel Commissary.

A refrigerating plant has been installed and is now in operation at
Pedro Miguel commissary. It is up-to-date cold storage equipment,
furnished with refrigeration from the Pedro Miguel restaurant. Three
rooms are supplied with refrigeration. Two of these are used for
keeping meat, poultry, and similar commodities. The third and largest
room is used for such purposes as the keeping of vegetables and the
cutting of meat. The counter box has also been refrigerated, whereby
a much lower temperature has been obtained than is possible through
the use of ice. Improvement in the handling and keeping of supplies
is consequently resulting.

Weather Conditions in August, 1919.

Rainfall during the month of August was generally deficient over the Canal Zone
and vicinity. Totals ranged from 4.02 inches at Miraflores to 18.48 inches at Indio.
The greatest amount of rainfall on any one day was 4.78 inches, at Porto Bello on the
14th.

The estimated average rainfall over Gatun Lake watershed was 9.42 inches, com-
pared with a 9-year mean of 11.56 inches, and the average over the Chagres River
basin above Alhajuela was 13.60 inches, compared with an 18-year mean of 14.35
inches.

Reference to a severe electric storm which occurred on the Atlantic side on August
5, during which an observation balloon at Coco Solo was burned and the mess hall
struck by lightning and slightly damaged was made in The Panama Canal Record
of August 13.
