Additional Details:
Latest photograph of the slide at Cucaracha, Panama. The loose dirt coming down the mountain side pushed entirely across the floor of the canal and destroyed all the construction tracks. At least 1,500,000 cubic yards of earth will have to be removed from the top of the slide by the steam-shovels before work at this point can be resumed. During the year 1912, about 5,000,000 cubic yards of dirt slid into this cut, greatly delaying the work
