Iu a communication to the New York
Tribune Captain James D. Ends suggests
means tor lifting loaded geau vessels
across the isthmus of Panama in 24 hours.
To the canal project lie urges what seem to
be insuperable objections. Alluding to the
estimates made by the congress of engineers
that recently convene! in Pans, he says:
Frum these it appears that the most econ
omic solution of this great question by
means ot a canal must involve the expendi
ture of at least $1 40.000,000, and possibly
much more, and that the execution of the
work will occupy from fifteen to twenty-five
vears irom tue time tiie work is com
menced. These facts justify the conclu
sion: 1st. That the amount of caoit.il re
quired is so vast that it will not pay to exe
cute tne work witn private means alone
2d. That the amount cannot probably be
obt lined unless the governments of the
several maritime nations directly interested
in the work aid the enterprise. 3d. That
the time required tor consummating the
work is so great that the enjoyment of the
comp.etea canal must necessarily be re
served to the next generation.
In view ot these tacts, is it not wise to
carefully consider other engineering expe
dients which have been, or may be suggest
ed for the transportation of ships and" their
cargoes across the isthmus? It is, as I am
informed, recommended by the Paris con
gress that the isthmus be cut down below
the level of the two seas to such a depth
as is needed for the passage of ships from
sea to sea, and thus avoid the use of locks
in the canal. To do this involves the con
struction of a tunnel four miles through
the Cordilleras, of such dimensions that
the one under Mount Ceuis dwindles into
insignificance when compared with it.
This method has been justly termed "the
heroic treatment." The term, however, is
not limited in its application, and suggests
similar treatment to the Panama railroad,
or to some other road which may be con
structea tor transportation of the largest
ships with their entire cargoes overland from
ocean to ocean.
My own studies have satistied me of the
entire feasibility of such transportation by
railroad, and I have no hesitation in say
ing that for a sum not exceeding otic-third
ot the estimated cost ot the canal, namely,
aooui, .ju,uuo,uou, the largest ships which
enter i:ic port ot ew l ork can be trans
terrcd when tully loaded, with absolute
safety across the isthmus, on n railway
i j 1 A . ... "
consrructcii ior tne purpose, within tweutv-
four hours from the moment they arc taken
in charge tn one sea until they are deliv
ered into the other, ready to depart on their
HOW SPEED MAY BE U.USEM.
On such a railway across the isthmus
there need be no grades stepper than those
on our cluet lines of railroads, and the road
l.i. . n . . ,
ieu ummoi lie over iorry leet wide, nor
have more than eight or ten rails laid upon
it to sustain the car or cradle upon which
the ship is placed. The vessel should br
lifted from tha sea to the level of the road
by a lock or by other well known hydraulic
devices, and placed upon a car or cradle of
ample strength t" sustain the vcfsrl with
her cargo ' without the possibility of
Injury. The lock should he twice the
length of the ship, nnd only one half of its
length should be deep enough to receive
the ship from the sea. The bottom of the
other half of the lock should be at the sna
level, and on this the railway should com
mence. Into this upper part of the lock the
cradle to carry the sliip should be run, and
the gates nt t!te land end should then be
closod, The ship should then be floated
into the deep end ot the lock and the sea
gates closed, after which water should be
admitted to fill the lock to a height suffi
cient t ) float the ship on the car in the up
per lift, after which the water should be
drawn off and the gates of the luud end
opened, and the car and its burden be then
started on its journey by rail. At the other
cud of the road the car should be run into
a siaiirar lock, the gates closed over the
truck, and those nt the sea end ot the lock
closed also. This being done the lock
would be ready for filling, after which the
ship could be floated off the car, and moved
to the deep end of the lock. The water
would tl'.eu be allowed to escape from the
lock, the ship lowered . to the ocean level,
the sea gates opened, and the vessel would
be then ready to resumo her voyagu la the
' A anther plan of the omincut engineer is
to dispense with lock aud substitute plat,
forms and hydraulic elevators. Ot course,
continues Mr. Eads, such an elevator would
be constructed in a harbor at each end of
the railway. The purpose of such eleva
tors would be to lift the ship out of the sea
at one end ot the route and lower it into
the sea at the other, and thus avoid usiug
a steep grade into the sea like the marine rai
lways which are seen in almost every navy
yard. Many ships are very long, and any
change of grade would have a tendency to
strain them. Any perceptible change of
grade must therefore involve devices to
prevent such straining, and these devices
it is desirable to avoid. For the same rea
son curves in such a railway should be
avoided. If a change of direction be abso
lutely necessary, it can be managed by a
turn-table at the locality where a change
of alignment is desirable. The avoidance
of curves would greatly simplify the con
struction of the car on which the ship is
to be transported. This car would probably
be formed by joining several separate sec
tions together, according to length of the
ship. Each separate section would proba
bly be 100 feet long ami supported by about
200 wheels, some of which should be driv
ers, actuated by propelling engines. Rub
ber or steel springs should be interposed
between the axles of the wheels and the
car. Each section of the car or cradle that
carried the ship would really constitute a
hx:c motive. The propelling engine would
be placed on each side, and at such a height.
as to prevenr suomergence when the car
would be sunk on the elevator or in the
locks. The weight f the largest merchant
steamer and their cargo would not ex
ceeed 10,000 tons, and such an one would
be carried on a cradle composed of five
such locomotives. These would hav
bout 1,000 wheels, bearing on eight
or ten rar.s with a pressure of atwiut
twelve tons to each wheel.
(IKEATEU SPEED TIIAX A CANAL.
On moderate grades an ordinary freight
locomotive will pull about fifty loaded cars
from fifteen to twenty miles per hour. The
weight ot the cars and their loads are about
one thousand tons, and this is carried on
about four hundred wheels. Hence the
largest ship and her entire cargo should not
require more than the- power of a dozen
such locomotives to move it at the same
speed over similar grades. From this it
must bcevident that the ship once safely
placed on a properly constructed car, ad
justed to the railway of a substantial and
well-ballasted road-bed, can be niovtd with
certainty and ease at a much higher rate of
speed than would be safe in tiie very best
canal that has been proposed. I would,
however, not expect to use a higher rate of
speed on a ship railway , than eight miles
The practicability of lifting the heaviest
ship out of water with perfect safety on
cradles adjusted to receive them is illustra
ted in every dock yard in the country, and
one of the methods I have referred - to rm
being a huge hydraulic elevator, has been
put to a practical test.
Of course the works ami devices required
for the successful operation of a ship rail
way should be of the most substantial char
acter, and the elevating machinery should
be of such strength and power as to make
the transfer of the ship from the railway to
the sea, and from the sea to the railway, a
matter of perfect safety and dispatch.
