"BIG DITCH" NOW
Removal of Gamboa Dike Means
End of Work Is Near.
WATERS OF OCEANS MEET
Pint 8teps Are Taken Toward De
atructlon of Big Embankmsnt
Which Holds Gatun Laka Out
of Culebra Cut. ,
" Colon, Panama, Oct. 1. The climax
9f oine years of untiring work on the
part of the men who have been build
ing the Panama canal came today
when the waters) of Gatun lake wero
permitted to run for the first time
Into the Culebra cut This simple
operation marked the virtual comple
tion of the great Isthmian waterway.
The water was permitted to flow
Into the cut today through four 211
Inch pipes extending through the
Gamboa dike, which has held the
waters of the lake back from the cut.
This was done in order that there
may bo enough water in the cut to
prevent any damage when the dike is
finally removed.
The final destruction of the big dike
Is scheduled for October 10, when
charges of dynamite placed in holes
already drilled in the dike will be ex
ploded. The explosion of these
charges will not completely destroy
the dike, but will weaken it and loos
en the . dirt so that the force of the
waters from Gatun lake will carry It
away. Steam shovels will remove the
remnants of the dike, leaving an open
passageway from ocean to ocean.
Canal Rsally Complete Now.
Although the canal will not be offi
cially declared completed for Some
time, and the formal opening of the
waterway to the commerce of the
world more than a year distant, the
canal engineers look upon the de
struction of the Gamboa dike as mark
ing the real completion of the canal.
The big engineering feats have all
been accomplished, the excavation
. work practically has been completed.
This picture gives a view of the great expanse of water now gradually
filling the Panama canal, which is alnnst ready for the admission of the big
hips. To look at tho picture one would think that the canal was finished.
The embankments that flank the channel, the broad expanse of water and
the MIraflores locks in the distance are Just as they will be when the open
ing of the canal takes place. This Is the only photograph received up to
the present time which shows the canal as it will appear at the opening
of the big waterway connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
ni fhn ereat blocks have' been con
strUcted. TbeVork that remains to
be done is largely detail, and Is but
child's play as compared with that
which has been done. More dirt is
to be removed from the channel, but
this will be done with suction dredges
floating upon tho waters of the canal.
There still remain some finishing
touches to be placed upon the locks,
but this work will take comparatively
little time and presents no engineer
ing difficulties suc! as have been en
countered In the past
The fact that the canal stands prac
tically complete more than a year be
fore the time originally set as the
date for Its completion is one of the
remarkable features of the work.
When Count de Lesseps, the great
French engineer, abandoned his ef
forts to build the Panama canal after
eight years of labor, he had scarcely
made a beginning upon the gigantic
task. In nine years, the American
engineers, starting almost at the same
point as de Lesseps, for the latter's
work was of little value to the Ameri
cans, have vlrtuaHy completed the
undertaking. When the work was
started the world scoffed at the Idea
that It could be completed within the
time limit set. but hats are now off
to the American army engineers who
hate more than kept their word, de-

Gotthals to Make Final TeBt-'f)
The first vessel to pass through the
canal probably will be a .boat of the
Isthmian canal commission, Col.
George W. Goethals, chairman of the
commission and chief engineer of the
canal, and his principal assistants.
The final voyage through the canal It
scheduled for some time during this
month. Within another month It is
expected the waters In Gatun lake
will have risen high enough to bring
the waters in the entire canal up to
the deep water level required for the
passage of the largest ships. '
It Is said that as long ago as the
early part of August, assurances were
given Washington officially that if the
emergency should arise, the entire
Atlantic battleship fleet could be put
through the canal Into Pacific waters
within 60 days from that date. The
work has been hurried with that end
in view, it is said, as no emergency
has existed, but this assurance Is an4 -
Indication of the belief of the engl
neers that their work is now practical
ly finished.
Culebra Cut Caused Trouble.
The excavation of the Culebra cut.
Into which tho water has Just been
turned, has been one of tho engineer
ing feats connected with the building
of tho canal, and has caused the en
gineers more trouble than any oth
er portion of the big "ditch." To
Col. D. D. Galllard, the engineer "of
the central division, is given the
credit for carrying this portion of the
work through to a successful termina
tion. The disastrous slides In the cut
were discouraging to tho engineers,
nullifying in a few hours the work of
many weeks, but Colonel Galllard and
his assistants have kept untiringly at
their work, and at last have conquer
ed th treacherous banks of the deep
cut. The engineers believe that the
danger of slides will be eliminated
now ttut the water has been turned
into the cut
A little more than a month ago the
giant steam shovels finished their
work in the Culebra cut Since that
time the workmen have been busy
removing the shovels', the railroad
tracks and other machinery used In
the excavation work. There Is still
some dirt to be removed from the cut
before the channel Is finished, but
this work will be done by suction
dredffes floatinc on the waters of the
canal, afnd will not interfere with nav
igation of the waterway by such boats
as may be allowed to pass through.
Immense Artificial Lake Created.
Gatun lake, the waters of which are
now flowing into the Culebra cut, Is
the pivotal point about which the en
tire canal system revolves, and the
creation of this lake, together with the
construction of Gatun dam, consti
tuted another gjreat engineering feat
In the construction of the canal.
Gatun lake Is an artificial body of
water covering about 164 square miles
of territory and was created by the
building of the immense Gatun dam
and the Impounding of the wild wa
ters of Chagres rivor. Deneath the
waters of Gatun lake lies what a few
months ago was the valley of the
Chagres, dotted with native villages
and plantations. The channel of the
canal passes through this lake for a
distance of 24 miles with a width vary
ing from COO to 1,000 feet
At the northern end of the lake
Is the Gatun dam, which is in reality
an artificial ridge more than a mile
and a half long. Figures alone give
an adequate Idea of the magnitude of
tlits dam. Nearly half a mile wide at
Its base, about 400 feet wide at the
water surface, and 100 feet wide at
the top, the dike which many engl-

Central American region can harm
it. The Gatun dam, Gatun lake and
the Culebra cut, so gigantic are the
proportions of each, dwarf the other
engineering works of the canal that
in themselves have challenged the
admiration of the world.
World Gives Goethals Credit.
To Col. George Goethals, chairman
of the Isthmian canal commission,
chief engineer of the commission and
governor of the canal cone, the world
will give the credit for the successful
completion of the Panama canal. Col
onel Goethals could not have accom
plished his task without the assist
ance of such men as Col. H. K.
Hodges, Lieut. Col. David Du D. Gall
lard and Lieut. Col. William L. Slbert,
army engineers, who have had, charge
of various phases of the work, but
Colonel Goethals Is recognized as the
real builder of the canal
Under Colonel Goethals the greater
part . of the $375,000,000 which the
canal will have cost when it is com
pleted has been spent. It has been by
far the costliest engineering project
in the world. Nearly three-fifths of a
billion dollars has been spent in dig
ging a 40-milo "ditch." This means
that the Panama canal has cost the
United States $10,000,000 a mile.
Over $16,000,000 of the total amount
spent has been used to make the canal
zone habitable and sanitary. It has
been suggested, that this is an enor
mous amount of money to spend in
cleaning up a place In which few peo
ple will reside permanently, but the
engineers say that the sanitation of
the canal zone was the chief factor In
making the canal a reality. The tail
ure of the French has been attributed
to a large extent to the fact that
the workmen could not survive in the
fever and pest ridden country.
The building of the great locks
which raise a vessel to a height of S7
feet above sea level at one end of
the canal and lower it the same dis
tance at the other end, has been in
charge of two of Colonel Goethals'
assistants. Colonel Hodges and Lieu
tenant Colonel Sibert. Colonel Hodges
work in Installing the Immense lock
gates that form so Important a part
of the -operating machinery of the
canal, and his ability to overcome all
obstacles had led Colonel Goethals to
call him a genius. The building, pels
Ing and operation of the lock gates
constitute one of tho delicate prob
lems of lock canal construction, and
the proper handling of this problem
has been Colonel Hodges', contribu
tion to the, work of constructlqn of
the canal.
Lieutenant Colonel Slbert has had
charge of the building of the great
dam and locks at Gatun, In addition
to other duties. lie saw long, ac
tive service In -the Philippines, and
he is known In the army as a fight
er as well as an engineer. His fight
ing qualities have enabled him to
carry through the great work of
which he has had charge in the
canal zone.
Realize Dream of Centuries.
Through the work of these men all
of them members of Uncle Sam's
fighting body the United States has
been able to attain what has been in
truth the dream of centuries. In nine
years these men have carried through
an undertaking that was first thought
of several hundreds of years ago
There Is evidence that the idea of an
Isthmian canal was born as early as
tho sixteenth century, for history re
cords the fact that the Inquisition
declared such a project to alter the
face of the earth to be Impious and
further .discussion of the matter was
forbidden by Philip II. of Spain, whose
reign began in 1S56. More than a cen
tury later a Scotchman named Patter
son revived the scheme, established a
colony on the shores) of tho Isthmus,
and made a crude survey of the route.
The United States government first
took definite action looking toward
the construction of an Isthmian canal
In 1834, when the senate voted for
the building of a Nicaraguan canal.
An expedition was sent to Nicaragua
to make an investigation, and report
ed that the canal could be construct
cd for 125,000,000, hardly one-twentl
eth of the amount that tho Panama
canal will have cost when completed
De Lesseps First to Dig.
The matter rested until after the
Civil war, when negotiations ror a
canal commission were entered Into
by the United States government Be
fere anything had been accomplished
the concession for a Panama canal
had been given to Lucien Napoleon
Banaparte Wyse, a Frenchman. He
organized a company, which sold out
later to the financiers associated with
Ferdinand de Lesseps. The company
organized with de Lesseps at Its head
was the first one to actually begin op
erations on the Isthmus. For eight
year's de Lesseps struggled manfully
against the greatest odds that man
ever was called upon to face.
Such was the history of the Isth
mian canal project for some 300 or
400 years, until the day In 1904 when
Uncle Sam undertook the task.
In nine years the dream of the cen
turies has been realized.

Will Expel for Hazing at University.
"Haze, and you leave college," was
the ultimatum Issued by the student
council of the University of Michigan.
The student council Is a group of
men chosen by the student body for
Its government In so far as self-government
Is permissible. The unlver-'
Ity authorities refuse to countenance
hazing, and have said that any stu

of Kalamazoo ban been appointed to
deal with this problem. -
Militiamen Not Protected by Act)
Although .Secretary Drake of the
Industrial accident board gave a ver
bal ruling several weeks ago to the
effect that members of the Michigan
National guard are In reality state
employes and as such are entitled to
the protection afforded by the work
ingmen's compensation and employ
ers' liability law, Attorney General
Fellows has rendered an opinion to
the effect that the compensation law
is not Intended to protect members
of the militia, but.be points to an
other statute which enables the board
of wtato auditors to compensate na
tional guardsmen In case of Injury.
The decision resulted from the
death of Ora Green, the Lansing boy
who died as the result of injuries re
ceived In the copper country while
on duty with Battery A, First Michl
gan Field artillery. It was thought
that Green's widow would receive
compensation from the state and that
the case would be acted upon by the
industrial accident board.
However, Inasmuch as the compen
sation act makes no mention of pro
tecting the militiamen, Attorney Gen
eral Fellows says that a law passed
several years ago which authorizes
the board of state auditors to com
pensate the widow out of the general
fund of the state treasury. This sec
tion of the law provides that tho aud
itors shall determine what shall con
stitute a Just and reasonable j settlement
It Is expected that tho matter will
be taken up at the meeting of the
board of auditors. In Wisconsin the
Industrial accident board held that
members of the national guard were
covered by tho state compensation
law, but Attorney General Fellows
points out that if it had been the
intent of the Michigan legislature to
bring the national guard under the
provisions of the act some provision
would have been made to take care
of an extraordinary liability shlch
might result from a serious riot.

Ferris May Call 1914 Session.
Governor Ferris reiterated his
declaration that there would be no
special session of the legislature
called to consider matters connected
with the copper country Btrlke.
"Hut does this mean there will bo
no 1914 session?" the governor was
asked.
He replied: "I would not say that
I was greatly interested In procuring
passage of the blue sky law in tho
regular session this year. This law
is now being attacked on the ground
that It is unconstitutional. If it wero
ibVown out, I should feel like taking
steps to have it made constitutional.
Other conditions may arise that
would make a 1914 session advisable.
I should say that it is among the
possibilities."
