Facilities for Shipping.

The Panama Canal is equipped with all the facilities for the fueling, supply, and repair of .ships
which are found in modern ports.

The coaling plants, with an aggregate storage capacity of 700,000 tons, bunker ships at the rate
of from 100 to 500 tons an hour, practically as fast as the nature of the vessel will allow. Oil can be de-
livered as fast as the ships can take it, from 30 tanks aggregating approximately 1,500,000 barrels oi
•torage capacity. Crude fuel oil, Diesel oil, and gasoline are sold.

The ships' chandlery storehouses carry a wide variety of marine supplies and spare parts. Tht
commissary stores sell foodstuffs, fresh meats, fruits, and vegetables, as well as clothing and a genera!
line of goods for supplying about 30,000 people resident on the Lsthmus. Ice plants, a large laundry
hotels, hospitals, and restaurants sen'e the passengers and crews of ships.

A salvage service operated by the Canal is available for prompt assistance to vessels within a radlu>
of a thousand miles of the Canal, or farther if required. Seagoing tugs or a wrecking tug with requisite
equipment are dispatched on short notice.

A 1,000-foot dry dock, capable of receiving the largest ships built, a smaller dry dock, floating crane*,
foundry, and amply equipped shops, employing about 1,100 men, provide the means of making prac-
tically any kind of marine repairs.

In general, the services to shipping at the Canol are such as have been developed and found ample
and effective in the course of handling large traffic through the Canal in nearly 10 years of operation.

on May 2, 1924, when 15 vessels made the transit from the Pacific to the
