Salina Cruz, Mexico, March 4,
1906. The government of Mexico
is spending $40,000,000 in gold in
making the Tchtiantepcc railway
capable of serving its puposc to the.
world. It is the greatest public
enterprise now in progress except
Uie Palladia canal.
Work Was begun in fgoi. 'Sir
Weettuan Pearson, the head ofn
great firm of English contractors,
laid it all out personally.
Mr. J. B. Body is resident'director;
Robert Adams is the consulting
engineer; Fred Adams is chief en
gineer all Englishmen and J. F.
McNab, a Scotch-American, form
erly of Milwaukee, has been in im
mediate control. These gentlemen
have had a great advantage over
the engineers at Panama, because
everything is entirely new. Wtien
they began had nothing here but a
barren waste of sand. They have
not only been building a harbor,
but a city also, and 'nbw'havea
town of about 7,000 inhabitants
with all modern improvements,
such' as Waterworks, seweragejeleo
tric lights and 5th avenites. 'There
is a hotel that cost $50,000 kept by
an American and two smaller ones
which are patronized by the natives.
COMMODIOUS HARBOR MADK,
The harbor at Salina Cruz is
being built by extending two break
Waters at acute angles from the
sh6re. Each is about 2,500 'feet
long and they converge so an to
leave a gap about 400 feet wide be
fween the ends as an "entrance!
way for steamers. These break-l
"waters iiielosc a harbor of
b'or of about 200 acres, with water1
fr'6m thirty' to sixty feet deep, capai
ble of holding all the commerce
that can possibly ever come here.
Inside of this anchorage is another)
Harbor, 3,000 by 1,200 feet' in'sizq
with thirty-three feet of water ai

continuous wharf furnished with
electric cranes, conveyers and other
machinery for loading and unload-)
iug. 'Three 'g'reat Warehouses are;
already finished, thee more are un
der construction' an'd when they are
complete they will furnish a storage
room for any amount of freight,
Steamers can come right alongside
and the railway tracks are laid so
that freight cau be 'hoisted to and
from the warehouses as the case
may be. When the 'works are
finished they will be capable of
handling between 'Toilr and five
thousand tons of freight daily.
FINEST DRYDOCK ON THK CON
TINENT. The most interesting feature of
the place to me is an enormous dry
dock, one solid mass of cement,
fthi6h. lotyfcs like orie of those fd'tfey
bathtubs that are chiseled out of a
single block of marble. When it
is finished it will undoubtedly be
the finest drydock in America, and
will cost three million of gold dol
lars. It will receive any battleship
in our liavy or 'any other vessel
that is 'not more than 650 feet long
or 100 'feet wide. It will'bejfully

and other machinery of the most
CONSTRUCTION OK THE BREAK
WATERS The breakwaters are built by
what is called "rip-rapping," by
the continued dropping of broken
stone into the water until a Wall is
fanned. AVhen a fouridatibn 'about
200 feet wide was laid the crevices
between the stone were filled with
rubble and enormous blocks of
concrete weighing sixty tons were
dropped at intervals to 'give the
structure stability. These blocks
are made on the ground by electric
The breakwaters have been built
up' twenty feet above low 'Water,
fwith a width of forty feet at the
top. The sides 'are protected by
rough blocks of natural stone weigh
ing from twenty-five to sixty tons
each, and the surface is capped with
concrete blocks weighing from forty
to sixty tons each. Upon the top
of these blocks is laid still another
capping of concrete six'feet thick,
'uYtfde "in 'stio," lis the etSglnecVa
say which means that it is laid
like pavement where it is intended
to- stay. This final coping ttnd
capping covers the entire break
water. THE STEAMSHIP CONNECTIONS.
It Was expected that this work
Would be finished by the first of
July when a contract between the
Tehuantepec railroad and the Ha
waiian-American Steamship Com- J
puny goes into effect. A fleet of
nine first-class modern steamers arc
to connect SalirJa Cruz with San
Francisco 'and Honolulu, on the
Pacific side, 'and Coatzacoalcos, oil
the . gulf side, with New Orleans
and New York. They will bring
taw sugar from the Hawaiian Isl
ands for New York, and take back
cargoes of general merchandise.
Contracts have already been made
with the Cosmos steamers, a Ger
man line managed by the Hamburg
American Company, and Mr. Ryan,
the general traffic manager, is now
in New York making arrange
ments with the Pacific Mail Com
pany. Mr. Calbraith, general ma
nager of the Tehuantepcc railroad,
told me -that he was prepared to
handle a million and a half tons of
freight next year, and will be able
to handle two millions a year as
soon as he gets the necessary cars
and locomotives. No port in the
world, not even Hamburg, which
claims the best dockage facilities,
is better equipped with modern
machinery for transferring cargoes
than Salina Cruz and Coatzacoal
cos. Both ports are already doing
quite a little business. A small
coasting trade is growing up; the
Pacific mail steamers now slop twice
a mouth on the way, and the Cos
mos steamers once a mouth each
