Cnde Bam furnishes free fuel to his msa and kindling la quite expensive. Mllllaaa saved tram Old Material. Indeed tt Is wonderful how much Uncle Sam saves by ue sals of old machinery various kinds of waste material. Tha moment he gets throush with a machine he disposes of It, and at the close of the work thera will be soms mighty sales of this kind. So tar more 5,000,000 baa been turned Into tha treasury from the aale-aO government property own- here, and aa additional K 000. 000 baa been received for ssrvloes rendered and material supplied to Individ uals and aompsnlaa. -.: Eeterrthing Is watched and there' la nothing too small to ba picked up Bad eared for.

Some-ef that on tha French nousss built twenty as thirty rears ago Is full f holes, but nevertheless It does for the walls ef buildings, where auch boles do not matter. It Is the same with every thing. The machines ara 'cared for. as though they wera race horses and svsry. where eosoowiy-a&d efflottmcy march side by side. .- I - . Watahlaa; the Labs. I hare already written something about tha labor of tha canal. Uncle Sam pays bigger wages 'and gues bigger vacations than any tothtr employer on aafth.

They can buy eatables at a shade above east and each at them baa sis weeks' vacation, with bis high rats at pay during tbs year. la return for this Undo 8am sees that they do their work. There la mighty little loafing aa the island, and during work- Ing hours every muscle la put to Us high est efficiency. Thera ara detectives waa go about to aaa if there la any scam ping tha Job or padding the pay- rolls, and tba poor workman is pretty aura to Be dropped, ' This hi especially so of the msa hand ling tha shachlaery A careful record Is kept of - the' amount at labor that- aaeh machine perTorma, -and from weak to week thaanaiaasra know Just what every steam shovel and every dredge ta dptngr Tnsra is a great oompstltioB aa to which maohmea and which gangs do .tbs moat; and aa a result wa have bad soms 'sur prising work.

The dredges are also of enor mous saving in the way ot efficiency and we have many other machines of similar economical nature, raeie Barn's . Bookkeepla. I wish I could show you the books that the government Is keeping dowa here at Panama. They have 4 rystsm of accounts which shows Just wbat svsrything costs down to ths lifting of svsry pound of sand and rock, to tha making of every eublo yard of concrete and, I might say, aa to tha 'labor pertormsnoa of every man.

This ts per eublo yard of work dons, and It shows Just wbat we are getting and of tha men and mac hi nee. . Take, for Instance, the Oatua locks. am looking at tha records at laat year. During the months of July, August and September the average cost, per cubic ysrd, ot work there waa a little o t.M. In September It was about 13, m August almost to and la July only a little ovec tt ' i Thle was made up of Items like ths fol lowing: Cost of drilling.

' Bidding ot this kind Is dons as to small contracts as well aa to large ones. I have before me the circular which gives ths proposals tor the great lock gates,' which, It - will be remembered, were awarded to Pittsburgh parties at a -coat of over trs000,00a. - It fills many ; pages and It Is seeompanied by designs which show Just what the locks must be. The provisions state bow. the stesl must be made, bow tasted, what the constituent elements ot eaoh part must be and. also iTrach an. Infinite -teumber .of details and provisions that a .full page of this Mwa- pepee wouia not contain mem an. t . After 'such contracts are mads ths gov ernment ssatls Its scientists and engineers to the various shops to watch ths con struction slid to sew, that all tha details ot the contract are carried out' These men make-chemical and other teato'from time - to time, They assay tha metals which go Into ths vartour. parts and meas ure to ths thouarninib of an Inch every piece of the machinery. The least varla tkm may destroy fa contract and tha re sult is that Uncle? Sam usually geta what he orders, although the contractor may go bankrupt la tarnishing the same.
