Panama, Sept. 1. Following the
removal yesterday ot the last re

the Panama canal, dredges tomorrow
will start to remove the last barrier
ot the Atlantic channel. When this
work Is finished ships may navigate
to the locks from both ends.
The Pacific barriers were blown
up by an electric switch which was
turned on twice yesterday, first at
9:30 o'clock and again at 1:30 p. m.
The first blast constituted about 44,
800 pounds of 45 per cent dynamite
and hundreds of tons of mud and
stones were thrown high in the air.
The explosion tore a big gap In the
barrier, but was not to a sufficient
depth to permit the water to flow
through as the tide was too low. The
actual breaking of the barrier came
In the afternoon when the second
charge was let go. Then a workman
