2 THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 5, 1913.
I mm, canal ALMOST READY FOR THE SHIPS Waters of Gatun Lake Will Flow Into Culebra Cut To day, When Chief Engi neer Gives Word. LITTLE REMAINS TO FINISH GREAT WORK Waterway Expected to Be in Condition for Passage of Largest Vessels by December. By International News Service I COLON, Panama, Oct. 4. Tho Pana ma canal is nearly completed. Tomor row at a word from Colonal Goethals the waters of tho Atlantic and Pacific will bo joined except for tho interven ing locks. Through four twcnty-slx-inch pipes inserted in tho Gamboa diko, the waters of Gatun lake will flow into the Culebra cut, tho only portion of the canal in which, at present, there is no water. On next Friday it Sb expected that sufficient water will havo filled tho nine-milo cut to act as a cushion when the Gamboa diko is blown up. Work men are now drilling thirty-foot holes in tho dike to take tho charges o dy namite. But theso charges will not demolish tho dike; they will merely loson the material so that the water will be able to trickle through and. cut its own channel. Tho steel dredges will complete 'tho work of opening tho channel, and once this ib done a clear passage from tho Atlantio to tho Pa cific will result. Ready by December. It is expected that by December tho waters in Gatun lake will have risen high enough to bring tho waters in tho entire canal up to the deep water level, when tho largo ships can. be sent through. Without tho mighty Gatun lake, a large artificial body of water made by impounding the waters of tho Chagros river in the vallcj', the entire canal system would be a failure. Gatun lake is tho feeder for the canal. At ono end is tho Culebra cut leading down through the Pedro Miguel locks into the Miraflores lake, and from thoro through the Miraflores locks into the inlet from the Bay of Panama. At the other end of Gatun lako tho canal leads through a series of three pnira of Jocks into the channel which has been dug to Linion bay. The wator level jn Gatun lake, who'n the full sup ply is accumulated, will be eighty seven feet above sea level It was .-just a mouth ago that the last bit of rock w:is taken out of Cule bra cut with the steam shovels. Since that time the workmen have been re moving the shovels, railroad tracks IAND: INVESTMENT COMPANY 6-8-10 West 1st South St. Glen Miller, President; George Sutherland, Vice-Pres. ; K. D.

STOP WASHING TIE HfllRWITH SOUP Soap dries your scalp, causing dandruff, then hair falls out After washing your hair with soap, always apply a little Dandcriue to tho scalp to invfgorato tho hair and prevent dryness. Better still, use soap as spar ingly as possible, and instead have a '"jJnnderino Hair Cleanse." Just moist en a cloth with Danderiuc and draw it carefully through the hair, taking one strand at a time. This will remove dust, dirt and excossivo oil. In a fow mo ments you will- bo amazed, your hair will not only be clean, but it will bo wavy, fluffy nnd abundant, and possess an incomparable softness and lustre. Besides cleansing and beautifying tho hair, ono application of Dandenne dis solves overy particle of dandruff; stimu lates the scalp, stopping itching" and fall ing hair. Dandonne is to the nair what fresh showors of rain nnd sunshine aro to vegetation. It goes right to tho roots, invigorates and strengthens them. Its exhilarating and life-producing proper ties cause the hair to grow long, strong and beautiful. Men! Ladieal You can surely havo lots of charming hair.

Any dirt taken out of tho canal systom from now on will be removed with the steam drodgos, which will bo able to cruiso from tho Atlantic to tho Pacific, groping with their iron hands beneath the waters for any re maining obstructions. When tho waters aro lot through to morrow tho canal virtually can be de clared, complete, for tho remaining work will be mere child's play com pared with tho Herculean featB wiich nave alroady been performed. Thus the Americans have, finished in nino years tho task which baffled tho Fronch after mnny years of work. It is interesting to read the accounts of the beginning of work in Culobra cut by the French on February 1, 1882. It waa a gala ovent. A huge banquet was given amidst flowers, flags and champagne, ending with a grand ball in the evening. Even tho motor boats in which tho enthusiastic Frenchmen were going to cruiso over tho canal thoy intended building so quickly were on hand. Those motor Doats wore never used. After several years of heart breaking toil, the Frenchmen retired and admitted their defeat. Scoffers Silenced. Was it strange, then, that when the Americans began work in 1904 that the world should scoff? But after the American engineers had been on the job for a year or more the world be gan to lose its scornful smilo and to" realize that the Americans meant busi ness. As usual, many mistakes were made. Twice as much earth haB been excavated as tho plans originally called for, and it has coBt twice as much money as was at first estimated. The Americans started out with the machinory left by the French. This they soon found to bo hopelessly inadequate and they now say that thoy cQuld nave accomplished little more than did the French with the same oquipment. In November of 1904 the first steam shovel made its appearance in tho ca nal zone, and by the following yoar ev ery bit of the antiquated machinory used by the French had been super seded by modern oquipment. At the beginning of this yoar there were at work on the canal, 101 steam shovels of tho latest typo, ranging in size from the twenty-six-ton model to tho 105-ton ants, capable of scooping up five cubic yards oi rock and earth, weighing about nino tonB, at a time. Also included in tho list of equipment wore 307 locomotives, 553 drills, 4572 cars. 20 dredges, 26 spreaders, 9 track shifters. 30 unloaders, 14 pile drivers and 184 other pieces of equipment, in cluding cranes, derricks and boats of all kinds. This' list is exclusive of tho equip ment used by tho Panama railroad, which had 62 locomotives, 1491 cars. 4 cranes, 2 pile drivers and 16 boats, in cluding a tugboat, 2 motorboats, a steam ditcher and steel and iron light ers. This equipment is practically all now, the old Fronch machinory having been relegated to the junk heap. To operate this equipment a force of over 40,000 men was required. Most of this force is still employed in putting the finishing touches on the big ditch. These men, tosrother with their families, total about 65,000 persons, all of whom aro dependent upon the government. The task, of feeding, clothing and hous ing these people, who are scattered along tho entire length of tho canal, has boon carried on by the subsistence department. Every morning at 4 p. m. a supply train leaves Cristobal. It is composed of refrigerator cars contain ing ice, meats and othor perishable ar ticlest nlong with a number of cars containing other supplies. Theso are delivered at the stations along the line and distributed by the quartermaster's department in the various settlements. The population of tho canal zono, of ficial census, is 82,811; of Panama City 35.368: of Colon, 17,749. In tho construction of the canal most of the manual labor was performed bv Rnantnrrla Ttnlinnu W,. T;jl -'n opaniarcis. xtanans, West Indians and natives of tho republic of Panama. To them much credit is duo, but the major part of the glory in such a remarka ble achievement must bo given to the American engineers, and to tho offi cials, clerical forco, construction men and skilled artisans, who wore practi cally all Americans. Tho Panama ca nal has been a big undertaking and has developed some big men, ohief among them being Colonel G. W. Goethals, who is known as "the man who mado tho dirt fly.
