COURT SUSPENDS LAW.
Commission Believes Hired Instead of
Contract Labor Beat for Con-
atructlon of Canal.
Washington, Nov. 28. Fall details
of the work done on the Panama canal
(taring the fiscal year 1907, -with a
showing of what haa been accomplished
since the project haa been in American
hands, are dttcloeed In tho annual re-
port of tho Isthmian Canal commission.
It is tho first report made of tho opera
tions on the Isthmus since conitruction
work has been in charge cf army en
gineers. Aside (torn tho $50,000,000 paid to
the French company and to Panama,
an aggregate of $48,285,110 has been
expended by tho government on tho
project adopted by congress and which
It was estimated by the board of con
sulting engineers would ultimately cost
$39,075,200. This estimate, however,
did not include sanitation and expendi
tures of the xonp government, water
works, sewers and paving In Panama
and Colon and the re-equipment of the
There la no reference in the report to
the proposition which has been brought
forward to extend the width of the locks
to 110 feet, so as to accommodate with
out difficulty tie ex'remo breadth in
the development of shipbuilding, and
this will bo made the subject of a spec
lal report from the commission. A
strong position is taken favorable to
the policy of doing the work by hired
Inttead of by contract labor, a step at
one time seriously considered by the
administration, and many arguments
are presented to justify the cornmlasloa
in its conclusion that the canal can be
built better, cheaper and more quickly
by the government.
Tho commission has fully decided
upon the method of filling and empty
ing the locks and the number and type
of gates. Tho gates are In duplicate
ana oi me miter type, except that tho
rolling gate similar to that now In nw
os the Ohio river will be rratatltated
for the daplioate set at the lower 'end
of each summit-level lock.
