^ PROGRESS ON CILEBRA Cl'T.
Col. D. D. Gaillard Talks of Work.?
to Finish His Part.
Washington, May 20.?Col. D. D.
Gaillard of South Carolina, engineer
in charge of the Culebra district of j
the Panama canal, where % slides j

"The Cucaracha slide," said Col.
Gaillard, "is what is technically
known as a true slide. The others
were caused by the crushing of underlying
material of poorer strata by the;

racha slide will be entirely removed j
by January, 1914. In the Culebra
cut on May 1, there yet remained to ;
be excavated 6,500,000 cubic yards of
material, including slides, out of a
total estimated excavation of nearly j
100,000,000 cubic yards. j
Col. Gaillard said that over 93 perr
cent of all excavation has been taken
out of the central division, and that
it seems probable that Culebra cut!
will be completed sooner than some
other part of the canai, lr snues uu i
not interfere. Recent reports on the
progress of the work in the Culebra
cut shows that the reduction in unit:

extra cost over 21,000,000 cubic
yards of materials added by slides,

force that has been employed since
the undertaking was begun."

Chester, May 18.?The jury of in-"1
quest over the remains of Anna Huey, .
the negro infant that was Killed &v its
father, Jam^s Huey, on Mr. R..C. Guy's
plantation Saturday evening, May 10,
brought in a verdict Friday that the
deceased came to her death from the
effects of a pistol wound in the head
fired by her father, James Huey, on
the evening of May 10. Mr. W. 0. Guy
was foreman of the jury.
The ewitnerses were examined. Sue
Huey, the child's mother, and William
Harper. The latter testified that the
woman came to his house and told
his family that she had had a quar- |j
rel with her husband and he had i
fired at her. Th^ woman, however,j
in her testimony denied that there had I
been any such quarrel or cause for

firing merely to frighten his wife, as
lie asserts, the charge of criminal
carelessness will be brought against
him, but if it can be proven that he
was firing at his wife with deadly intent
and his bullet went wild and killed
the child instead, he will have to
face the charge of murder.
