ON THE ISTHMUS
President Taft Pleased
Notwithstanding the Fiu-1 tImt Sever,
ill I iiexpected Slides Occurred
(loud Progress Was Made.
Washington, November 20. -Sum.
nmri/.ed In a phrase "satisfactory pro
gress all along the Panama Canal
Zone." is the gist of the annual report
of the Isthmian Canal commission,
made to Secretary of War Dickerson
by Col. George \V. Goethals, chair
man Of the commission, and chief en
gineer in charge of the work on the
canal and made public today by the
With the work of excavation and
of construction progressing favorably
at all points along the lino, w ith health j
conditions better than ever before,
with a centralization and consequent
economy in certain parts of the work
and with a maximum of lahorers since
Hie United States Penan to dig the
canal. Col. Qoethnls's report was de
cidedly pleasing to Secretary Dickin
The chief engineer reports, however,
that it was not all smooth sailing dur
ing the past year, slides, breaks and
floods hindering the work to a cer
tain extent lie men irons tour slides,
covering respectively 1.7. T.:t. 1.0 and
1.7 acres, ami requiring during the
year the removal of more than a mil
lion cubic yards of material, "it was
expected," In- says, "that slides would
occur, and in the estimates provision
was made for them, hut it now appears
from cracks that show in the upper'
surface adjacent to tin* laces of the:
<ut that sufficient allowance had not
been made, and the estimates were
corrected to meet the new conditions."
Three had br? aks. he reports, eecur
ed during the year, one at die town
of Culobrn, covering an area of more
than ten acres and requiring a re
moval of more than a million and a
half of cubic yards of dirt and stone.
The second' largest break covered an
area of more than eleven acres and
required a removal of more than 300,
1100 euhic yards, while the third break
aggregated about 10.000 cubic yards.
More than 30,500,000 cubic yards of
material were renio\ from all parts
of the canal during the year, of which
almost 15.000,000 were from the Cul
ebra Cut and almost 10,000,000 from
the Chagres section. Ahout nun.nun
cubic yards remain to he moved from
the Culebra Cut before this section of
the canal is completed.
Economy has been sought by the,
commission in various directions "To
reduce to a minimum delays on ac
count of breakdown of machinery
plant and equipment, which rolle I
largely in the unit cost of work," say?
Col. Goethals, "nnd to provldo proper
facilities for overhauling plant and
equipment, as well as manufacturing
necessary repair parts, large shops
have been provided at certain points
on the Isthmus, In which an- employ
ed a total of I.".'.?I men.
"in general." he adds, "the repair
shops and equipment on the Isthmus
are adequate to meet tin- requirements
during the construction period. Noth
ing as yet has been done toward perm
anent shop facilities which will be
needed after completion of the canal.
"During the year special attention
wo > paid to redtu iu.u the cost ol main
tenance and operation of equipment."
N nin her of r.iupln* ees,
There was a steady increase from
the beginning of the past fiscal year
In the number of employees on the
Canal Zine?until Oil March 30 last
they reached a maximum of 38.071?, the
largest force on record. This Includes
those employed on the Panama Kail
road. The total forte at the end of
the \ear was 30,678, as compared with
33,103 a yeai- earlier,
Investigations carried on during the
year Indicate, says Col. tloothnls, that
during ordinary years there will be a
considerable surplus of water from
ClatUUl Lake, even in the dry seasons,
and that the water supply of the worst
known dry season for the last nine
teen years, namely, that of 1008, would
he Rllfftclenl to maintain through the
canal an average daily number of
passages Ihree or four limes as great
as the average number now passing
the Suez ?'an.ii. this after making rea
sonable deductions for evaporation.,
leakage, power supply and lockages.
Health ?ondltlons on the Isthmus
are reported to be an Improvement ov
er those of the preceding year; nnd'
no eases of plague or yellow fever
originated on the Isthmus during the
year. The daily average of sick was
23 out of every thousand employed,
as against 23.40 during tin- preceding
year, and the total number ol deatli8
among employees was ."IS. equivalent
to an average of 10.81 per thousand
