In this connection the report says:
"During the fiscal year 14,921,750
cubic yards of material were excavat

893,531 cubic yards to be removed in
order to complete this section of the
canal. The remaining amount .includes
an increas'e of 6,408,560 cubic yards
over the estimate made In September,
1908. This increase is due to widen
ing the canal north of Pedro Miguel
lock so as to form a basin, adding
thereby 932,572 cubic yards, and to al
lowing 5,475,988 cubic yards of slides
and breaks, as a number of new ones
developed during the year and could
not be forseen when the estimate of
September, 1908, was made.
"The total amount of material re
moved from all slides and breaks in
the central division during the fiscal
year amounted to 2, 649,563 cubic yards,
or about 15 percent of the amount re
moved from the Culebra ' cut."
